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 Goro'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: Outworld Alignment: Evil Allies: Shao Kahn, Kintaro, Sheeva, and Shang Tsung Foes: Liu Kang, Motaro, Johnny Cage, and Noob Saibot Species: Shokan *From Wikipedia* Goro was introduced in the very first Mortal Kombat game as the sub-boss, where he was infamously very difficult to defeat. More than two thousand years old, he is the Prince of the Shokan race, hailing from the Kuatan realm of Outworld. As a General in the Outworld Emperor Shao Kahn's militia, he fights for the pride and glory of his people. Game Appearances: Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Mortal Kombat 4, Mortal Kombat Gold, Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, Mortal Kombat: Unchained, and Mortal Kombat: Armageddon Alternate Outfit: Find in Konquest or purchase in the Krypt. Unlocked: From Start ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ii. History [102] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ *From Wikipedia* Goro became Grand Champion of the Mortal Kombat tournament after defeating the Great Kung Lao. For 500 years, he remained undefeated and helped Shang Tsung grow ever closer to achieving Shao Kahn's goal of domination over Earthrealm. In his 10th title defense, however, he faced Liu Kang. Kang pushed him to his limits and finally defeated the mighty Shokan warrior. In the tournament's aftermath, Goro went missing after a battle between him and Kano, Johnny Cage, and Sonya Blade. He was believed to be dead. It is theorized that he actually retreated back to his kingdom during this time. Shang Tsung, meanwhile, faced execution for his defeat at the hands of Liu Kang and for Goro's apparent death. Goro would resurface after Kahn's downfall, during the events of Mortal Kombat 4/Mortal Kombat Gold. Despite having the intent to avenge his losses at Liu Kang's hands, Goro began to take an interest in the matters of his own race and joined his fellow Shokans in war against the Centaurians. Princess Kitana intervened and negotiated both races through a truce and peace accord. The meeting was interrupted by Kung Lao who desired to challenge his ancestor's killer. The Shaolin Monk lashed out with a ceremonial strike of revenge that left Goro's chest scarred. Considering the score settled, the two shook hands. When Shinnok and his legion were defeated and Edenia was free once more, Goro and the Shokan race decided to ally themselves with the Edenians. Years later, during the time of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, the united Edenian and Shokan forces attacked the weakened Shao Kahn's armies. Exhausted from battle, Goro was struck from behind by Noob Saibot. He was mortally wounded, apparently dying from the injury. However, Goro is able to survive, being saved from death by Shao Kahn himself. He vows his allegiance to the emperor, making the Shokan allies of Kahn once again. Mortal Kombat Armageddon Ending Goro defeats Blaze and attains the power of a god. Shao Kahn, Onaga, Quan Chi, and Shang Tsung had formed an alliance to get this power, only to have it stolen from them. They confronted Goro in an attempt to get it, but Goro laughed and from beyond the pyramid came an army of Shokan that killed the four attackers. The Shokan would rule Outworld. Mortal Kombat The Movie Goro is shown as this unstoppable beast and is eventually defeated by Johhny Cage. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ iii. Notes [103] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ +Quite Strong +One of the few giants with two styles -Slow -Tall ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ iv. Strategies [104] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Goro is actually one of the best kombatants there is. He has a lot of good combos and specials so you should take advantage of them. Try out King Of Shokans and Hands of Fury to get things started. /-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=\ 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 Goro. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ i.
