* MultipleEndings: Kinda. Each character has two newspaper clippings: one, which "resolves" their plotline (most of them don't actually match the bios -- most {{egregious}}ly, Karla's bio states she's seeking revenge against her rival Eva Gunther, but her ending is "[[ImGoingToDisneyWorld I'm Going To Disneyland!]]"), you get the normal way; the other, which describes the character doing something horrible to Koldan, you get by defeating him with a FlawlessVictory in the match-point round. DoWellButNotPerfect if you want the more satisfying conclusion.

* CaptainErsatz: Granted, since the game was trying to play FollowTheLeader with MortalKombat. For example, A.C. Current is Johnny Cage with Raiden's powers, Derek O' Toole with his red headband looks like Liu Kang, and perhaps most blatantly, Luke Cord is Jax with an octopus on his chest.

Gameplay wise... it's ''Mortal Kombat'', only buggier, less visually appealing, virtually characterless, and with [[ToiletHumor fart and diarrhea moves]]. The game's main feature was the (supposed) over two thousand finishing moves. Nearly all of them, however, involved things like summoning the [=DeLorean=] from ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'', turning someone into a bunless hot dog, or crushing them with a boat. They did have Nudalities... except most of the fighters were men.

* LarynxDissonance: The imperfect sound emulation in the MAME ROM shuffles everyone's voice samples, making everyone say and scream things that don't match their character, and in some cases, playing samples at the wrong times, making them say things like "Get up and fight" and "Navy rules" when they uppercut the opponent.



* {{Not}}: Koldan yells this during each VersusCharacterSplash (if he doesn't laugh instead).

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Mullah Abba, who is supposed to be TheObiWan of the game, does this ''twice'' before the game even ''begins''. Firstly he tattoos Koldan in an effort to make him into a better bodyguard, only to turn him into a genocidal supervillain instead. Then the Mullah tattoos nine other people in an effort to stop Koldan, only for Koldan to seize control of eight of them and use them for his own ends.

** One of the fatalities involves dropping a [=DeLorean=] on the enemy. All because the guy who wrote the "story" for the game was the aforementioned screenwriter from ''Film/BackToTheFuture''.

The story began during development of Data East's ''Pinball/BackToTheFuture'' [[PhysicalPinballTables pinball game,]] when Data East executive Creator/JoeKaminkow became friends with ''BTTF'' producer Bob Gale. Bob subsequently talked to Joe about a script for a story about magic tattoos coming to life and fighting each other; Kaminkow decided to turn the story into a fighting game. He assembled a team of programmers, gave them about [[TemptingFate half the time]] usually given to make a game, and set out to cash in on the latest fad.
