Nightmare Fuel / Mortal Kombat: Conquest

Go To

Just like its parent franchise, Mortal Kombat: Conquest had a healthy dose of Nightmare Fuel even without Fatalities.

  • Reptile's transformation really evokes the Uncanny Valley, especially with the primitive CGI.
  • In the final episodes, the heroes encounter a village of people who worship a god they call Shaka. After witnessing some Troubling Unchildhood Behavior, they realize the villagers are actually worshipping Shao Kahn.
  • The ending to the series. Shao Kahn wins, killing everyone but Raiden, who is now his prisoner, and displays their personal items as proof they've been slain.
    Shao Kahn: Let's see what gifts we have for our guest. A traitor...dead. Two sorcerers ...dead. A queen...dead. A daughter...dead. A bodyguard...dead. A thief...dead. A champion...dead. You... will... bow! To... Me.
    • Even worse is that Shao Kahn used Raiden himself to lure Kung Lao, Siro, and Taja to their deaths, knowing that if he kept Raiden in Outworld long enough they would go to look for him.
    • Upon this revelation, Raiden tries to fight Shao Kahn and seems defeated at first, as Kahn doesn't fight fair and kicks him while he's already down. Even when Raiden brings out his magical hammer and calls upon his thunder powers, it's an even fight until the very end.
    • And just when it seems like Raiden will score a revenge kill, overpowering Shao Kahn, his powers fizzle out. The fight delayed Shao Kahn long enough to transport the entire city to Outworld, rendering Raiden powerless. Kahn finishes the fight by punching Raiden, and the camera, out.


How well does it match the trope?
