Here is the conversion between the three systems the game is on. Once the Wii releases, I'll get those controls up as well. Playstation 2: Xbox: Wii: Square X Triangle Y X A O B R2 R R1 Black L2 White L1 L This guide is made for the sole purpose of Motaro's Moveset in Mortal Kombat Armageddon.

Biography: [101] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Place of Origin: Outworld Alignment: Evil Allies: Goro, Kintaro, Sheeva, and Mileena Foes: Shang Tsung, Onaga, and Liu Kang Species: Human *From Wikipedia* One of the primary villains in the Mortal Kombat series, Shao Kahn resembles an Asian warrior-king in many respects, and embodies evil in many forms. He is known for his godlike strength, extreme callousness, brutality and his fondness of personal executions, but rises above the level of a mere warlord through his intelligence and knowledge of black magic. Like his subordinate Shang Tsung, he has the power to consume other souls. His greatest strength is probably his ability to work towards his goals with great tenacity and his ability to organize, but his greatest weaknesses are his arrogance and his overconfidence. Game Appearances: Mortal Kombat II, Mortal Kombat 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Mortal Kombat Advance, Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks and Mortal Kombat Armageddon. Alternate Outfit: Find in Konquest or purchase in the Krypt. Unlocked: From Start ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ii. History [102] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ *From Wikipedia* Shao Kahn originally served as an advisor to Onaga when the latter ruled Outworld as the Dragon King. Onaga's Empire had become the most powerful in the realms and so he began searching for a way to become immortal. Before his goal could be realized, Shao Kahn made his move by poisoning Onaga and taking his kingdom. Leading whatever troops that remained loyal to the Dragon King, Kahn continued many of the former emperor's plans. He continued to add lesser realms to Outworld, either through direct conquest or through Mortal Kombat. A milestone in his military victories was the merging of Edenia with Outworld. After his warriors had won in Mortal Kombat, Kahn invaded the realm. On the battlefield, Kahn killed King Jerrod, and took Queen Sindel as his wife, raising her daughter, Princess Kitana, as his own. He had the young princess trained as his personal guard and as an assassin. Sindel took her own life in an attempt to escape subservience to the Emperor. Unwilling to be denied, Kahn held her soul in Outworld, stopping her transition to the afterlife. Many years later, Kahn chose Earthrealm as his next conquest. He sent Shang Tsung and eventually Goro to Earthrealm to prepare it for an invasion in the event of Goro maintaining his position of champion. A turning point came when Prince Goro defeated the Great Kung Lao and started a winning streak that would last for 500 years. Shang Tsung, a shapeshifter, supervised the tournament. The tenth Mortal Kombat however, saw the defeat of both Goro and Shang Tsung by a Shaolin monk, Liu Kang, ruining five hundred years of Tsung's investment. Shang Tsung begged Shao Kahn for his life, and came up with a plan to lure Earth's chosen warriors to Outworld for a second tournament. Shao Kahn spared Tsung's life and restored his youth. If Earthrealm's champions could be killed, they would not be able to cause further damage to Kahn's plans. With the captured Kano and Sonya Blade as bait, and enraging Liu Kang by sending Baraka and his troops to destroy the Shaolin temples, they confidently waited for the Earth warriors to fall into the trap. Despite Kahn's vast power, Liu Kang's determination saw him through, and he defeated the despot. Unwilling to accept defeat, Kahn called his armies to destroy the Earthrealm warriors. They fled back to Earthrealm, out of Kahn's clutches. By this time, Shang Tsung was able to resurrect Queen Sindel in Earthrealm, and Kahn could reach across the border to claim her, merging Earthrealm and Outworld in the process. Kahn had Tsung proceed, and when the realms merged, every living being in Earthrealm had their souls ripped from their bodies. Kahn's day finally seemed to have come. Lord Raiden had protected the souls of a handful of warriors, but Kahn sent extermination squads to kill them. In the ensuing fights, Kahn was confronted by Kung Lao, another Shaolin monk and descendant of the warrior Goro defeated to become champion of Kombat, but Kahn crushed him. Raiden brought Liu Kang to fight him again, and the Shaolin Monk wore Kahn down enough for him to recall his squads and retreat to Outworld, which stopped the merger and restored Earthrealm to its original status. To make matters worse for Kahn, many of his loyal soldiers had abandoned him, and Kitana had succeeded in turning Sindel to her side, restoring Edenia as an independent realm. Shao Kahn and Goro slaying Onaga (Kahn's MK:D ending)The emperor was now greatly weakened, and would remain so for a period of several years, remaining inactive during Shinnok's war against the gods. The Edenians had in the meantime made peace and military treaties with the Shokan, on whom Kahn had always heavily relied, and were ready to attack Outworld a few years later. It was only through his new commander Kano's ingenuity, and the stealth of his unreliable assassin Noob Saibot (who critically wounded Goro) was Kahn able to save the day and force the Edenian army into a draw. Soon afterwards, the sorcerors Quan Chi and Shang Tsung entered his throne room, and swore false allegiance to the emperor. Quan Chi and Shang Tsung caught Shao Kahn off guard and seemingly killed him. This would appear to be the demise of the mighty Kahn. In the GameCube version of Deception it is revealed that Kahn did not die, and that it was a clone that Quan Chi and Shang Tsung killed. The real Kahn appeared to the wounded Goro and, using what little power he had left, revived him, thus gaining Goro and the Shokan as allies once again. In the events of Armageddon, Shao Kahn forms an uneasy alliance with Quan Chi, Shang Tsung,and Onaga in hopes of obtaining Blaze's powers. In his ending, Shao Kahn makes his way to the top of Argus's Pyramid for the final confrontation with Blaze. Shao Kahn proved to be too powerful for Blaze and easily defeated him. Shao Kahn's armies destroyed what was left of his enemies, and with the power Shao Kahn recieved from defeating Blaze, he merges all the realms with Outworld. With his main goal completed and having complete control over all the realms, Shao Kahn grew mad with not only power, but from boredom as well. With nothing else to conquer and no one to oppose him, Shao Kahn's sole purpose in the Mortal Kombat franchise had been fullfilled. Mortal Kombat Annihilation Shao Kahn is the main bad guy in the movie and kills Johnny Cage, Rain, and Jade throughout the movie before dying to Liu Kang. It is also mentioned in the move that he and Raiden are brothers and Shinnok is the father. This however was never confirmed in any game and therefore may not be true. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ iii. Notes [103] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ +Very Strong +Strong Moves +Easy To Input -Somewhat Slow -Limited Moves ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ iv. Strategies [104] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Abuse Charging Spikes all the time, this move is great. You should try and get some other moves in like Angry Ruler and then follow that up with a Screaming Hammer. Use his hammer most of the time though because it has tremendous strength. /-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=\ 2. Movelist [200] \-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=/ Moves will we listed with the combo needed to enter and then the name. Buttons separated by commas are inserted after completing the first one and "+" mean at the same time. The Playstation 2 and the Xbox are the two systems that have this game so I have to use a different key that encorporates both systems. There is a simple key below, and you can expect Wii controls as it releases. Yes, there are only two styles for Shao Kahn. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ i.
