Despite its title, Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge partially focus on the demonic specter of vengeance seeking out Sub-Zero than the overall premise of the animated film, which is a retelling of the first tournament that started it all. The movie opens with a very gory, very bloody intro depicting the titular character's demise at the cold hands of Sub-Zero who exterminates his entire clan and family. Scorpion then makes a pact with the current ruler of the Netherworld, Quan Chi to fight for him at the upcoming Mortal Kombat tournament in exchange to get payback for what he endured in his previous life and a chance to be reunited with his fallen family.

Megaman began airing on Saturday mornings on my neck of the woods in 1994; a full year after Sonic the Hedgehog was introduced on TV for the first time and which would come up earlier than the super fighting robot's animated series. It was curious to see a cartoon featuring cute bipedal animals fighting robot dominance while a couple hours later you would see a robot fighting totalitarian robotic global control as well. Both cartoons based on famous gaming franchises that have tested the passing of time even to this day.
