References and Easter Eggs

Pac-Man's Grave
In MK3, the developers whose last names appear on the closest tombstones in this stage are, alphabetically, Steve BeranEd Boon, Dan Forden, Tony Goskie, Dave Michicich (spelled Mikicic), John Tobias, and John Vogel. Since there are seven designers and only four tombstones, four names are chosen at random before each round. Their accurate dates of birth appear as well, with the date of death being April 1, 1995, the month of Mortal Kombat 3's arcade release (as well as April Fool's Day). The name "CAGE" can also be seen on one of the markers on the far left of the stage, referring to Johnny Cage's deceased status in MK3. In a sly reference to the first Mortal Kombat, where he appeared in the Palace Gates stage, an engraving of Pac-Man can be seen on the right in an upward facing position, implying that he too had died during Earthrealm's invasion. 
In Mortal Kombat Trilogy for the Nintendo 64, The Graveyard receives a bit of an update. In addition to the Midway development team, names of Trilogy's designers were added to the rotation, and the date of expiration was changed from April 1, 1995 to September 30, 1996, in order to reflect the release date of Mortal Kombat Trilogy.
