Notes:

  1. Several Tarkatans (referred to as "Goro's nomads") are seen, including one unnamed one amongst the kombatants that may be intended to represent Baraka.
  2. The Tarkatan character Karbrac represents Baraka for an unknown reason. This could be most likely because the series is based on the movies, and Baraka was killed in the second one.
  3. 3.0 3.1 An unnamed male tarkatan appears prominently in Scorpion's Revenge and Battle of the Realms. Whether he is meant to be Baraka, remains officially unconfirmed.
  4. The character of Master Cho from Conquest was a prototype for Bo' Rai Cho.
  5. Mentioned as simply 'Kung Lao'.
  6. Sonya mentions a "dangerous man" having boarded the boat, but doesn't specify his name.
  7. 7.0 7.1 The Great Kung Lao is represented dressed up as his descendant from the games, with the token razor hat.
  8. 8.0 8.1 8.2 8.3 8.4 8.5 8.6 Noob appears as the Original Sub-Zero.
  9. This version of Noob is simply a shadow of Ermac, unrelated to Bi-Han.
  10. 10.0 10.1 10.2 Referenced as the Original Sub-Zero.
  11. In Defenders of the Realm, the Green Ninja Komodai represented Reptile, who was killed in the 1995 film.
  12. In Annihilation, different Saurians are used to represent Reptile.
  13. The Sub-Zero that appears in Conquest was intended to be an ancestor of Sub-Zero and Noob Saibot.
