Nightmare Fuel / Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

Go To

  • The Krypt, full stop. Not only do you hear very creepy background music the whole time, you will also sometimes hear the screams of agony from random voices, soft whispering, animalistic growling, mysterious footsteps, rats, and strange crinkling noises. Just listen for yourself, if you dare.
  • Drahmin, who appears to be a muscular corpse with flies buzzing around him, is quite disconcerting.
  • Li Mei's ending, where her soul and that of her village feeds Onaga's Undead Army, is horrifying. Especially since it turned out to be canon.

  • Moloch's howl upon starting a round can be quite haunting, which is not at all helped by the fact that he is the tallest character in the series.
  • After you finish the final fights with the titular Deadly Alliance, you get to see a lovely view of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung's rotting corpses, along with the relatively unnerving music playing in the background. The Soulnado behind them arguably makes it worse. Conversely if you beat Arcade with an evil-aligned character, you instead get a menacing shot of an alive Quan Chi and Shang Tsung about to assault an Earthrealm city with their newly revived undefeatable Dragon King army with the same music playing.
  • Four words: "Liu Kang is dead". For years, this guy was the hero of the Mortal Kombat universe and seemingly invincible champion of Earth. His death in this game showed just how dangerous the newly formed Deadly Alliance truly.

How well does it match the trope?
