Following his defeat, Shang Tsung begs his master, Shao Kahn, to spare his life. He tells Shao Kahn that the invitation for Mortal Kombat cannot be turned down, and if they hold it in Outworld, the Earthrealm warriors must attend. Kahn agrees to this plan, and restores Tsung's youth. He extends the invitation to Raiden, who gathers his warriors and takes them into Outworld. The tournament is dangerous, as Shao Kahn has the home field advantage, and an Outworld victory will unbalance the furies and allow Outworld to subsume Earthrealm.

Jade's costume appears to be "peeling away" in many frames. The peeling away effect exists only where Kitana's costume would be glistening with light; since Jade's fans match her skin color, this is probably because the game went merely by color and not by where the pixels to be changed were located, thus interpreting the shine on her suit the same way as the glistening of her fan blades. This was largely fixed in the SNES version, notably the only port to accurately retain all of Jade's physical attributes (all others fix the issue by not changing the color of her fan blades and mostly leaving her skin the same color as Kitana's).

The Sega Genesis version has a hidden finishing move that does not appear on any other platform of the game. Via a cheat menu, Rayden players on the armory stage can turn a defeated opponent into a small guy in a cheesy tuxedo, and the game calls this a "Fergality". This cheat menu also turns on a different "Toasty" face and accesses a hidden Blue Portal stage. See more
