You know, if you stop to think about it, Mortal Kombat's tournament system is pretty messed up. One guy against a dozen other fighters? And that one guy even has to fight other people that are trying to save Earth? Not to mention fighting a clone of yourself. Shesh, Mortal Kombat has some f**ked up rules.
On a related note; remember the second Mortal Kombat movie? Remember how Raiden half way into the movie comes back and randomly got his haircut? Remember that? What the f**k was that all about?!
