Added DiffLines:

** Even ''Liu Kang'' - ''a former Shaolin monk'' - tells Shang Tsung to "fuck off".

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: In the original game, Johnny Cage was an action movie star who entered the tournament to prove to he was not a fake. In this show, Johnny is a washed-up former teen actor who struggles to find any work and whose reputation has suffered due to frequent run-ins with the law. Also, whereas Johnny in the games and other media is depicted as snarky and easygoing, this Johnny is moody and bitter about his poor state of fairs.

Added DiffLines:

* WhamEpisode: Episode 3 of Season 1. After the first two episodes had been relatively realistic, [[spoiler:Shang Tsung appears after having ''stopped'' time, and also plants the first seeds of the Mortal Kombat tournament starting]].


* CurbStompBattle: Episode 2's fight between Kano and Briggs. After Kano taunts Briggs that he's going to enjoy this as much as he enjoyed torturing Sonya, he promptly fails to land one blow as [[TranquilFury Briggs beats the tar out of him]].

* CurbStompBattle: Episode 2's fight between Kano and Briggs. After Kano taunts Briggs that he's going to enjoy this as much as he enjoyed torturing Sonya, he promptly fails to land one blow as [[TranquilFury Briggs beats the tar out of him]]. Johnny's NoHoldsBarredBeatdown of a scumbag network executive and three burly security guards in episode 3 also counts, after Johnny overhears the executive in question stealing his rejected idea for a show and pitching it to a female action star.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: The executive in episode 3 calls Johnny's idea for a show stupid and fake, and gets it rejected, but a little while later is pitching the exact same idea to a female action star. This also extends to the aftermath, where after Johnny [[LaserGuidedKarma beats the shit out of him and multiple security guards]], the executive threatens to make sure that Johnny will never find any more acting work, despite him outright doing his best to ruin Johnny's career.

Added DiffLines:

* RoleReprisal: For the second season, Creator/CaryHiroyukiTagawa returns to the role of Shang Tsung, after nearly two decades and at least one franchise reboot.

* AdaptationalHeroism: [[spoiler:Bi-Han, aka Sub-Zero. In the games, Bi-Han was a {{Jerkass}} AntiVillain at best, who killed anyone his grandmaster told him to, helped Quan Chi kill the four gods who protected Earthrealm, and ended up a willing servant of Shang Tsung, fighting on Outworld's side in the tenth tournament. Even if he wasn't guilty of slaughtering the Shirai Ryu, he was still absolutely a villain. In this series he's an outright hero who did everything he could to stop the fighting between the Lin Kuei and the Shirai Ryu, and was so dedicated to protecting the peace that he didn't seek revenge even after Scorpion murdered his brother. He even fights on the side of Earthrealm in the tournament.]]

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheSonOfABitch: After hearing the TV executives pitching his TV idea to another female actress, Johnny proceeds to [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat up the TV producer]], and [[CurbStompBattle isn't slowed down the slightest by security.]]

* TemptingFate:TemptingFate: Kano says exactly the wrong thing to Jax, and then proceeds to get his ass handed to him.

Added DiffLines:

* EmpoweredBadassNormal: In Season 2, it is revealed by Raiden that all of the BadassNormal fighters representing Earthrealm receive a [[PowerUp power upgrade]] when they are transported to the island where the tournament is being held. E.g., Johnny Cage gains enhanced speed, Kenshi becomes telekinetic, Kung Lao can apparently teleport, etc....
