I'll be late for class, but it's okay! A good street fight is worth it!

Did you know?
Cabinet Absence
In lieu of Daniel Pesina (Johnny Cage's actor) fallout, the Mortal Kombat cabinet Liu Kang drops in game is missing one character who appears on it in real life.

I See Red People
One of the many player rumors about MK2 that was actually true was the random chance for Johnny to perform his Shadow Kick with red shadows, instead of green. Though the exact science behind it was never deduced in that game, both the red shadow kick and red shadow uppercut would become regular special moves in Mortal Kombat Trilogy.

In the instruction manual for the Nintendo 64 version of Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Rain was given a completely different backstory:

"Rain is an assassin working freelance. He was once a member of the Lin Kuei along with Sub-Zero, but left the clan under mysterious circumstances. Years later, Rain is found working for Shao Kahn as an assassin in the Outworld. Born a human, he finds himself questioning his loyalty towards Kahn after watching the invasion of Earth."

Rain's story changed significantly for the actual game. Furthermore, since this basic story (albeit with the Black Dragon instead of Kahn's forces) was later given to the character of Tremor in the spinoff game Special Forces, coupled with the odd appearance of a brown/tan clothed "ninja" in the manual (Tremor's colors), it is rumored that Tremor was at one point supposed to appear in the game.
