Five hundred years ago, Shang Tsung was banished to the Earth realm by his master Shao Khan. There he was to open up a gateway for his master, by upsetting the Earth realm's natural balances. Tsung dominated the Mortal Kombat tournament, and had almost reached his goal when his dominance came to a smashing end at the hands of Liu Kang, a Shaolin monk. Tsung returned to the Outworld a shame. He had failed his master, and his Shokan pupil, Goro, had apparently perished. Tsung however, developed a new plan, which he told his master. Kahn was delighted by this idea, and spared Tsung's life. Kahn would have no failures this time. Kahn swiftly defeated his opponents, and set his sights once again on Earth. Upon his arrival, Kahn began to take souls from the population of Earth, except for a few, chosen by Raiden to protect the Earth Realm. Each warrior has their own reason to be alive. And now, with the battle lines drawn, the Kombat Kontinues.............. ÉÍÍÍÍÍ» º Key º ÈÍÍÍJust what, exactly, does Block - Run - Jump up and down mean? While reading this FAQ, you may refer to this key to translate some things you may not understand. Note: If you have to press up in a motion, it may help to hold block. Quarter Circle Towards: Move the joystick from the Down position to the Towards position. Quarter Circle Away: Move the joystick from the Down position to the Away position. Half Circle Away: Move the joystick from the Towards position to the Away position. Half Circle Towards: Move the joystick from the Away position to the Away position. Down - Up: Move the joystick from the Down position to the Up position. Charge [B] (X): Hold the specified button [B] for X seconds. Hold: Hold the specified button(s) while performing the move. Release: Release the button you held during the maneuver. Fatality: When you have beaten your opponent the best two out of three, you can do him/her in the old MK way! Super Uppercut: Each Kombatant's Super Uppercut motion is the move which will allow you to do a Stage Fatality on either The Pit 3, Shao Kahn Tower, or, The Subway. Mercy: If you don't want to finish your opponent quite yet, you can grant them Mercy! This gives them some extra energy, so you can beat each other around a bit more. This move is also the same for each character. In order to show Mercy, you must lose one round of the match. Mercy: Hold Run - Four Down - Release [Full Screen Away] Animality: To perform an Animality, you must grant Mercy during the Third Round. Then, when it again says 'Finish Him!/Her!' you must perform the character's animality. Battle Ascension: In certain Kombat Zones, such as "The Subway", if you clip your opponent with an uppercut, they go flying up through the ceiling, and you follow. You then continue the match on the streets. Battle Ascension is present on the following stages: Soul Chamber, The Subway, and, The Bank. If you do Battle Ascension on your opponent, the order in which the stages come will reset to the first background. So, if you wish to do a Super Uppercut, stay away from Uppercuts during the match on those stages. Babality: In order to perform a Babality, you must go your entire winning Round without using the Block button at all. Friendship: Once again, as in MK ][, you can do a Friendship on your opponent. Why a Mortal Kombatant would want to make nice with his/her opponent I have no clue, but, to do a Friendship, you must not use the Block button in the winning round. Random Selection: In order to randomly select a character, you must push Up on the joystick at the same time you press start. (Player One's selector must be on Tsung, and Player Two's must be on Liu Kang.) ÉÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ» º Individual Moves º ÈÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍWhoa!

He was chosen to be the leader of Shao Kahn's extermination squads. It is fairly easy to defeat Motaro, so long as you follow one rule: do NOT use ANY special move on him. If you fire a projectile, it will bounce right back at you, and Cyrax's bombs simply disappear without exploding. The main attack Motaro falls for is this: jump in, so that you land slightly in front of him, and throw a combo. He will get hit by it. If the first few hits are blocked, he will usually stop blocking sometime during the combo. Another way that Motaro allows you to clip him with over and over is this: corner him, and just Roundhouse him to death. --Shao Kahn--------------------------------------------------------------------- Actor: Brian Glynn Shao Kahn is emperor supreme of the Outworld, and has now taken over the Earth. This tournament is the last chance for the Earth Warriors to stand up to Kahn. Shao Kahn fights almost the same as he did in MK ][, but he has a few new attacks. However, be wary when he laughs or taunts. He is not stupid, as was the case in Part ][. He will attack YOU when you get near enough. If Kahn forces you into the corner, beware. He will attack you several times in a flurry, and you might stop blocking as he hits you. ÉÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ» º Kombat Kodes º ÈÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍShh, don't tell anyone. This section of the FAQ deals with the so-called "Lock Sequence" codes that you can enter on the versus screen. Each player controls the three boxes on their side of the screen.

Allows Smoke to be used. ÉÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ» º Hidden Characters º ÈÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍHey, you kow how to use Cage? *WHAP* Owww! I swear, I saw my friend use him.... But, uhh, he forgot how...... Usable: Smoke: In all versions up to and including v2.1, Smoke was hidden, locked away until the Ultimate Kombat Kode was entered. In Ultimate, he is a normal usable character like the rest. Fightable: Noob Saibot: Noob Saibot can be fought using a Lock Sequence code. Saibot is a shadow of Kano. Smoke: Smoke can be fought as well as used. Use the Lock Sequence code. Smoke isn't much of a fighter. He just kind of walks around and spews smoke around the screen. Once in a while, he gains the initiative to run up and combo, but that's about it. ÉÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ» º Kombat Diskussion º ÈÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍDifferent things about Mortal Kombat III. -The Movie- Mortal Kombat:The Movie, was released in theatres on August 18, 1995. The motion picture sports great special effects, a good plot, good transition of the characters into the story, and it has an awesome Soundtrack! If you haven't seen it yet, you must live in Outworld, so go through a portal and see it NOW. :) -The Novel- There are now two MK Novels out. One has been out since May (MK:The Novel), and the other since August (The Movie Novelization). The Movie Novel is not worth the paper it's printed on due to it's lame retelling of the movie's plot, but MK:The Novel is a much different story. The plot of the novel is quite different from the movie, but it contains all the Kombatants and as much action as you'd expect from Mortal Kombat. The novel is written by Jeff Rovin. -The Home Versions- The Mortal Kombat III home versions are due out very soon. The PlayStation version is due October 1, and the versions for the SNES, Game Boy, Genesis, and Game Gear will be available October 13th, Mortal Friday. The Super NES version is the only one I have actually seen in play, and it looks to be a great translation. How the others are remains to be seen. -MK3 Online- No it's not a new online service, though we all keep wishing. The Mortal Kombat phenomenom has spread all over the Internet, and there are now many places you can go to get instant information about it.
