Added DiffLines:

** Geras has CompleteImmortality and TimeMaster powers: one cutscene shows Kung Lao decapitating him, only for him to immediately rewind himself back in time, reattaching his severed head and bringing him back to perfect health. In the end, defeating Geras requires wrapping him in chains and dropping him into the bottomless Sea of Blood. Of course, in any fight outside of story mode, characters can put Geras down for good with a simple Fatality, which he apparently forgot how to rewind himself from.
** In one story mode fight, Jax and Jacqui encounter Cetrion, an Elder God. The only way they can stand a chance against her is by using [[AmplifierArtifact Kronika's crown]]. Outside of story mode, these two fighters (and anyone else for that matter) are evenly matched with the PhysicalGoddess.


*** All kharacters have a universal Brutality that has them uppercut their opponents and knock off their head along with the spine.

** Like the previous game, it's bizarre as to why many kharacters are even remotely fighting and brutally murdering each other. A particularly egregious example is this intro with Shao Kahn and Kollector

Added DiffLines:

* AboveTheGods: This game introduces the Titans, who are above even the Elder Gods in the power scale. BigBad Kronika is the only one who appears in the story, although others are seen in some characters' endings.


* InksuitActor: Cetrion, Raiden & The Joker, and Shang Tsung are all based on their voice actors' appearances - Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn, Creator/RichardEpcar, and Creator/CaryHiroyukiTagawa respectively. The Terminator is modeled after Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger.

* InsistentTerminology: Apparently, the Briggs family can't distinguish between different types of undead beings. With the Revenants being a very common occurence, it's very easy to miss that Noob Saibot describes himself as a ''Wraith'', while Spawn is... well, a ''Hellspawn''.


** Ziggzagged with Raiden and Liu Kang. Dark Raiden is erased after Kronika summons his past self, and while the present Liu Kang has no problem with this, his past self ends up helping Raiden stop themselves from becoming this all over again.

** There cannot be two of the same gods in any timeline. Dark Raiden is erased when Past Raiden appears and realizes Shinnok's amulet will corrupt him, and he puts this knowledge to use in the finale to finally save Liu Kang: he ''turns Liu Kang into a god'' at the cost of himself, simultaneously erasing Liu Kang's Revenant and throwing a spanner into Kronika's plans ''even worse'' than the one she bent over backwards a hundred times over to avoid.

*** Some of Shang Tsung's costumes also de-age to his younger self as seen in the movie, and one of his victory poses has him recreate the opening scene from the movie, where he points at the camera and proclaims "{{Your soul is mine}}"!

** If having the good looks of a [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger certain Austrian musclebound superstar]] wasn't enough, the Terminator naturally takes this UpToEleven. [[spoiler: His pre-fight interactions are '''loaded''' with unhealthy amounts of pop-culture references not only to the ''Terminatorverse'' - but to the other films where Arnold had been cast, including his signature one-liners.]]

* EasilyForgiven: Raiden forgives Present!Jax when he repents joining Kronika after Raiden reveals her relationship to Cetrion and Shinnok. When he starts fighting alongside Jacqui and the others, they forgive him, too.
--> ''Raiden:'' It is not foolish to fight for your family's betterment.



** Older Jax after siding with Kronika. While it's true that he's essentially traumatized from his time as a Revenant and losing his wife while constantly worrying if his daughter will make it home each time she goes into battle, Jax's motives appear to be quite overprotective, believing that Jacqui only enlisted to honor him. Even his younger self is disgusted by how disgraceful and pathetic he's being by trying to selfishly create a alternate version of the timeline where he retires as an honored war hero and Jacqui doesn't enlist. While he does repent for his actions after Raiden tells him the truth, it still doesn't excuse Jax's actions.
