Havik's constant mention of the "Blood Code" in the MKX comics, whenever it's by himself talking through one of the people he has possessed. I thought it was just a manta that Havik has, but it might be another case of him breaking the fourth wall because he could also be referencing the "Blood Code" for the Sega Genesis version of MK1.Read more >
I decided to just up and use Web Archive to look at previous versions of MK websites or at least, old and defunct ones and then I found something rather peculiar concerning the details of the then-WIP Shaolin Monks and one of the bullet points shown, in these exact words:
" A continuity expert was hired to review the game's storyline and ensure there are no errors (especially events in past MK storylines)."

I'm left wondering about this little bias we have here:
The first Mortal Kombat movie is often considered one of the prime examples of a good film adaptation of a video game, regarding as the best among many fans. In spite of this fact, the movie itself actually lacks what visually distinguished Mortal Kombat from the other fighting games at the time: the blood and Fatalities. The movie is rated PG-13 and features blood in only one scene in the entire movie, where Liu Kang kicks Shang Tsung in the face and his lip bleeds a little. There are Fatalities, but only three of them, two of which are pretty tame as a matter of fact and even then, no blood is spilled. It instead all focuses on story telling and good fight scenes
