Basic Info [100] \-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=/ Before we get started, we aren't all playing on the same console. 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 Kung Lao's Moveset in Mortal Kombat Armageddon. You may print out a copy to use if you wish but in no way can you recreate or use this guide for other purposes. If you see a mistake anywhere in this guide, feel free to contact me so I can fix it and give you the credit you deserve. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ i. Biography: [101] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Place of Origin: Earthrealm Alignment: Good Allies: Liu Kang Foes: Shang Tsung Species: Human Game Appearances: Mortal Kombat II, Mortal Kombat 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Mortal Kombat Gold, Mortal Kombat Advance, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, and Mortal Kombat: Armageddon Alternate Outfit: Unlocked: From Start ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ii. History [102] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mortal Kombat: Armageddon *From Wikipedia* Kung Lao is the last known descendant of the Great Kung Lao, a former Champion of Mortal Kombat, who lost the title to Goro 500 years previous. Like his best friend, Liu Kang, Kung Lao is also a member of the White Lotus Society. Kung Lao was originally the one to represent the Temple of Light in the Mortal Kombat tournament but declined knowing the consequences of becoming Mortal Kombat champion. Liu Kang was then chosen to participate in the tournament, and emerged as the winner. When the Shaolin Temples were attacked by Baraka and his Tarkatan soldiers, Liu Kang and Kung resolved to travel through the portal that brought the Tarkatas to their temple and avenge their fallen Shaolin brothers, goaded every step of the way by Shang Tsung. Although he joined his friend in his furious quest, Kung Lao's ultimate goal was to rebuild the White Lotus Society at the Wu Shi Academy, in order to train a new generation of warriors for the coming ages. He, along with Liu Kang, ventured into Outworld to do battle with Outworld's forces in a new tournament. During their adventures, they began to forge an even stronger friendship with each other than the one they had before. While it is unclear as to what matches took place, it is known that Liu Kang fought with Shao Kahn himself, eventually overpowering the emperor. Afterwards, Kung Lao traveled back to Earthrealm to rebuild the White Lotus Society. When Shao Kahn's invasion of Earthrealm came, he had to temporarily scrap his plans for reforming the Society. Kung Lao challenged Shao Kahn; He seemed to be doing well against the emperor but was brutally beaten forcing him to retreat. This enraged Liu Kang as he succeeded in defeating Shao Kahn for the second time. With Outworld driven back, Kung Lao decided not to return to the Shaolin Temples, instead allowing everyone to believe that he was dead and went on to live a life of peace. Kung Lao would then find the tranquility and atonement he had always wanted. This would not last long however, as he was drawn away from his newfound peace to help fight against Shinnok's forces, when word reached him that Goro, the Shokan warrior who had defeated the Great Kung Lao centuries ago, was still alive. Confronting the giant, Kung Lao lashed out with a ceremonial strike of revenge in honor of his long-lost ancestor that left Goro's chest scarred. Considering the score settled, the two shook hands. The next years were peaceful. This ended on a brutal note at the time of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, when the sorcerers Quan Chi and Shang Tsung united and murdered Liu Kang in a vicious attack (Tsung posing as Kung Lao to get close to the champion). Kung Lao found the body of his longtime friend, and was told immediately by Raiden that Tsung was the assassin, who had formed the Deadly Alliance with Quan Chi. Enraged, Kung Lao vowed revenge upon the sorcerer, and once again abandoned his pacifist Shaolin beliefs. He knew his current skills were insuffcient to defeat Shang Tsung so after meeting with the other Earthrealm warriors and travelling to Outworld, Kung Lao sought the advice of the martial arts teacher Bo' Rai Cho. Bo' Rai Cho trained Kung Lao for a short time, teaching him the 'whirlwind kick' maneuver. Together, they joined the other warriors in the assault against the two sorcerers. Kung Lao would not rest until Liu Kang was avenged, and Tsung had paid with his life. But the assault did not end well. Along with Sonya, Jax, Johnny Cage, and Kitana, Kung Lao was defeated in the assault against the Deadly Alliance. Kung Lao was revived by Onaga as a slave during the events of Deception, but was later returned to his normal self by Liu Kang. Mortal Kombat Armageddon Ending Kung Lao goes back in time after defeating Blaze. He meets his old ancestor, and with his blessing, takes his place in the Mortal Kombat tournament. He defeats Goro and becomes the MK Champion and was a legend. As a result, Liu Kang never competed, and his and Kung Lao's rivalry never came to be. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ iii. Notes [103] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ +Has some good combos and attacks -Not the fastest or strongest -Weak moves ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ iv. Strategies [104] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I'd recommend pummeling your opponent with Strong Monkey and Take It because they're pretty easy to input and can cause some great damage. The only special I really recommend using is his Hat Throw and maybe the Teleport every so often. /-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=\ 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 Kung Lao but the number of moves per set is greatly increased. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ i.

Moves [220]| o+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-o =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- a. Specials [221] =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Chest Kicks..................TH Kung's throw isn't to special, it doesn't do much damage and can pretty tough to execute. I don't recommend using it that much. Whirlwind Kicks..............D,B+3 These kicks are pretty nice and should be used every once in awhile to stir up some new combo. Hat Throw....................B,F+1 Lao's signature move, the Hat Throw is a pretty nice special and should be used a lot. Definitely try to use this to clear some space. Wind Teleport................D,U+2 This teleport gets you behind your opponent and sets up one of the below attacks for you to use. Wind Teleport Hand Bash......D,U+2,1 The Hand Bash is a great move to use out of the teleport. Wind Teleport Fist Smash.....D,U+2,2 The Fist Smash is also a great attack us use. Wind Teleport Face Kick......D,U+2,3 The only attack I really don't recommend using is the Face Kick because it can miss a lot of the time, really only use this when you're fighting a tall opponent. Wind Teleport Kick...........D,U+2,4 This kick on the other hand works fine and should be used often. -In The Air- Air Dive Kick................D,U+2,D+3 The Air Dive Kick is a cool technique to drop when you're in the air, try it out for yourself to experiment how it works for you. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- b. Fatalities [222] =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Fatalities are different this TIME, you get to input your fatality. Here's what you do! I haven't experienced with it much but I'm pretty sure when it's time to FINISH HIM, you can chain things together with different moves. Experience with all the moves to find some cool fatalities!
