  • The ending is already quite bleak, in that Shao Kahn wins at the end, as he goes through each and every keepsake of the fighters he had defeated, all with his usual Evil Is Hammy demeanor...but the persona drops when he gets to Kitana's fan blades, showing nothing but remorse for killing his own daughter. Even when he gets to the last keepsakes, his tone of voice is more dramatic than jovial. Quite a far cry from his sociopathic canon counterpart.
    • Even worse; a second season was planned in which the Elder Gods would have intervened, revived everyone killed and punished Shao Kahn, but this never happened due to TNT not renewing the series.
