- Doing It for the Art: For a multiplayer-based game, it's so full of little details... Each individual ladder isn't just a bunch of matches done randomly. It takes every character through their own journey to achieve their objective, be it searching for a great warrior for your cause, just winning the Tournament, getting revenge on your rival... And the Rites themselves take distance from the rest of the Tournament/Championship saga (sans Unreal Tournament III perhaps) as the single-player mode.
- Hey, It's That Sound!: The Liandri robots in the second stage uses the "robot being hurt" sound from Unreal Tournament 2004.
- Relationship Voice Actor: The Battle Couple of Selket and Apophis are also Olivier Mira Armstrong and Denny Brosh. Talk about Asskicking Equals Authority.
- Role Reprisal: Chase Ashbaker and Herman Sanchez reprise their roles as Raiden and Shao Kahn by way of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance and Mortal Kombat: Deception.
