The History of Mortal Kombat -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- When Mortal Kombat launched into arcades nationwide in 1992, it shocked and amazed fighting game fans. From it's excessive blood and gore to the amazing motion-captured moves, Mortal Kombat was born. The basic premise of this new and advanced fighter, was to choose a character and battle it out to the death with another human opponent or the CPU. What set this game apart from inferior fighting games, *cough* Street Fighter *cough* was, as stated earlier, its excessive use of blood and gore. After a match concluded, the announcer screamed "Finish Him!" At this point the player had the opportunity to input a series of directional button presses to hopefully perform the desired, what was then known as, Finishing Move, on his or her opponent. Finishing Moves were often very bloody and gory, somehow reigning death upon the opponent. Some Finishing Moves included Sub-Zero's infamous spine rip, where he would rip off his opponent's head with the spinal cord still attached, along with Kano plunging his hand deep into his fallen opponent's chest, and violently ripping out his or her heart. Mortal Kombat was amazingly popular for its time, drawing huge crowds to various arcades nationwide. A sequel was therefore, inevitable. The sequel to this rapidly growing and popular fighter was aptly named, Mortal Kombat II. Mortal Kombat II launched into arcades in 1993, a year after its predecessor. This new and improved Mortal Kombat brought what the original title had brought to the table, plus more. The new Mortal Kombat introduced seven (7) new playable characters to the series, as well as returning favorites. Each character also had two (2), now what came to be known as Fatalities, as opposed to the original one (1). Each fighter also possessed a Babality and a Friendship. These new "Finishing Moves" were implemented because of the series' negative media response, claiming it was harming America's youth with its excessive violence. They were added to give the Mortal Kombat series some comic relief, and rid it of some of the game's violence. The Babality was simple. A character would transform his fallen opponent into a baby, complete with a diaper. The Friendship, on the other hand, was humorous in it's own right. One example of a Friendship was Baraka's present giver. Baraka held out his finger, and then reached behind him and brought out a present for his opponent. Another very humorous Friendship was Liu Kang's. During Kang's Friendship, a disco ball would lower, and the player would see Liu Kang dance under the ball to disco music. Mortal Kombat II was a massive success, and is revered by many Mortal Kombat fans as the best of the series. Because of Mortal Kombat II's success, Mortal Kombat 3 was on its way. When Mortal Kombat 3 finally hit arcades in 1995, it was met with critical acclaim. It had been two years since the last iteration in this storied series and fans were getting restless. Most fighting game fans had moved on to the new 3-D fighter, Namco's Tekken. The Mortal Kombat elite returned for Mortal Kombat 3 though, but were left with a mediocre sequel that offered more of the same. The now traditional Fatalities, Babalities, and Friendships made a return, along with an all-new -ality, the Animality. The Animality was simple. The character would transform into some sort of animal and maul/kill his or her opponent in various ways. Some favorites include Cyrax's Great White Shark. Cyrax morphed into the shark, went under the screen, and came up on his victim with a huge chomp, devouring his opponent in one bite. Sub-Zero's polar bear was also popular. Sub-Zero transformed into a polar bear that would then proceed to fall on his victim and maul them to death. Mortal Kombat 3 was not well-received, so Midway set out to expand Mortal Kombat 3 with an "expansion pack" of sorts to MK3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 launched later in the same year as Mortal Kombat 3 (1995). It offered players five (5) returning favorites, who missed the cut in Mortal Kombat 3: Scorpion, Reptile, Kitana, Mileena, and Classic Sub-Zero, as well as offering players two (2) characters new to the franchise, Jade and Ermac. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 also offered plenty of new fighting arenas, including the popular Jade's Desert. Some Mortal Kombat 3 characters received move upgrades, balancing everyone's move sets. UMK3 was mildly successful. The Mortal Kombat development team was fresh out of new and innovative ideas. However, they did come up with a "new" Mortal Kombat game. The game would be a compilation of sorts, combining almost every Mortal Kombat character into one game. This game came to be named Mortal Kombat Trilogy. Mortal Kombat Trilogy launched in 1996 only on home consoles. This "new" Mortal Kombat allowed players the chance to play as three (3) returning favorites in, Johnny Cage, Baraka, and Raiden, not seen since Mortal Kombat II, and two (2) brand new characters in Noob Saibot, and Rain. Mortal Kombat Trilogy was merely a compilation of all the previous games in one. Nothing new and innovative was introduced unfortunately. The only real addition to the game not seen in previous interations, was the Brutality. The player would input a series of nine (9) button presses, having the character perform a massive overlaying combo, eventually leading to the opponent exploding. It was mildly entertaining, but offered nothing new to pique casual gamers' interest. John Tobias, the lead storywriter for Mortal Kombat set out to create a side-story to MK. This game featured Sub- Zero, chronicling his adventures outside of the Mortal Kombat Tournament. The game came to be known as Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero. Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero debuted for the Nintendo 64, and the Sony PlayStation in 1997. As mentioned above, the game followed Sub-Zero on his journeys outside of the Tournament. It was an action/RPG side-scrolling game. As Sub-Zero defeated enemies, he gained experience points which were used to upgrade Sub's move-set. Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub- Zero was received to an open-armed audience as many Mortal Kombat fans were eagerly anticipating John Tobias' foray into the action/RPG market, as Tobias is/was revered as a great storywriter. Ed Boon, one of Mortal Kombat' founders, then set out to produce another brand-new Mortal Kombat game. No more "expansion packs," no more compilations, an all-out new MK game, Mortal Kombat 4. Later on in the year 1997, Mortal Kombat 4 was launched into arcades across the United States. MK4 even had a road trip, which spanned the country previewing the new Mortal Kombat game at arcades everywhere. Mortal Kombat 4 was the first title in the series to play in "full" 3-D. There were a handful of new characters in this game, including: Reiko, Jarek, Fujin, Quan Chi, Kai, Shinnok, and Tanya. Mortal Kombat 4 was a return to the series' darker roots. The game featured dark storylines of revenge, deceit, and hatred. The game returned to only two (2) Fatalities per character. No more of those other "-alities" that brought comic relief to the series. A unique twist on the traditional hand-to-hand combat was the inclusion of character specific weapons. At any point during the match, the player had the choice of pulling out a deadly weapon. Some weapons included Scorpion's massive broadsword, Jax and Reiko's spiked clubs, Sonya's spinning blades, and even Tanya's boomerang. Weapons added a whole new layer of strategy to Mortal Kombat 4. The weapons were able to be thrown and dropped when hit, and the weapons even had their own move-set. Mortal Kombat 4 implemented some new ideas, but these innovations were overshadowed with the arcade releases of Namco's Soul Calibur, and Tekken 3. Mortal Kombat 4 will always be remembered as the first 3-D Mortal Kombat game. Not to be outdone, Ed Boon and company decided to release another "expansion pack" coinciding with the release of Sega's new Dreamcast system. In September of 1999, Midway released Mortal Kombat Gold. Mortal Kombat Gold closely resembles Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, content-wise. It added five (5) returning characters to Mortal Kombat 4's already meaty fighter lineup. The characters added were Cyrax, Mileena, Baraka, Kitana, and Kung Lao. This new iteration added nothing new to the series gameplay-wise unfortunately. Mortal Kombat Gold did not fare too well on the Dreamcast because of the lack of gameplay additions, all of its bugs and glitches, and most importantly, its main competition, Soul Calibur, the top fighting game by far, at the time. A year later in 2000, John Tobias decided to undertake another action/RPG clone, a la Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub- Zero. This time the game was to be in full 3-D, chronicling the adventures of Jax on his adventures in trying to capture his arch-nemesis, Kano. The game came to be called Mortal Kombat: Special Forces. The game featured a level-up system much like MKM:SZ. Instead of learning new moves, Jax learned new combos. Halfway through development, John Tobias left Midway completely, for undisclosed reasons. This occurrence all but ensured Mortal Kombat: Special Forces would grow only to become a complete failure. Mortal Kombat: Special Forces was a failure because of its lack of innovation, poor graphics and gameplay. This game tarnishes Mortal Kombat's record as the storied fighting game franchise everyone thought of it as. Two and a half years later, Ed Boon and his development team in Chicago now embark upon an entirely new MK, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. Shedding the number "5" at the end of it's title, to seem more as a rebirth of the series, rather than a sequel, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance seeks out to regain the top spot Mortal Kombat once held. Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is going to feature fully 3-D digitized characters, with 5000 to 6000 polygons each. The game also features full 8-way movement with multiple fighting styles per character, rarely, if ever seen in a fighting game to date. This game has been in development for a couple years now and looks to regain the top spot as the best fighting game around. This FAQ/Move List will inform you of EVERYTHING one needs to know in order to become the master of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. From it's full 3-D movement to multiple fighting styles per character, including hand-to-hand and weapon, and a return to the series' darker roots, prepare to step into the tournament known as Mortal Kombat once again. Mortal Kombat has been reborn. Are you ready? -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-= II. The Story of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- With the aid of the thunder god known as Raiden, Earth's mightiest heroes have repelled all invasions from other-worldly forces through a tournament known as Mortal Kombat. Although there has been relative peace for many years, a new threat to Earthrealm has emerged. And this time, the threat of evil has two faces. In an attempt to seize control of the realms, the sorcerers Shang Tsung and Quan Chi have joined forces and are preparing to revive the lost army of the mythological Dragon King. Should they succeed, they will be unstoppable. Once again, Earth's heores must venture to Outworld and kombat the forces of evil. They must act now. They must stop this Deadly Alliance. *Opening FMV* The opening FMV of the game is so great, I am going to give you, the reader, the most detailed account of what goes on. Without anymore interruption, I present to you the opening cinema of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance: The FMV starts off showing Liu Kang practicing his moves in the Wu Shi Academy arena, with Kung Lao looking on. It then pans to a tunnel with lava littering the bottom, and Raiden narrating some of the history of the Mortal Kombat tournament. Raiden talks about how the forces of good and evil have been locked into an eternal battle for Earthrealm. They then show portraits of Quan Chi, and Shao Kahn with Raiden telling us that some of the participants entering the tournament want to stop all that is good. They show a picture of Scorpion with Raiden saying that some enter for vengeance. Pictures of Kano and Shang Tsung are then shown with Raiden saying that they are in the tournament for power, and eternal life respectively. Once again pan to Kang practicing, with Raiden saying that time after time, the evil has been vanquished. Back to the lava filled tunnel, with Raiden saying that there is concern that Earth is once again in peril. This time the threat of evil has two faces. We are then shown the evil sorcerer, Quan Chi, running across a bridge with lava flowing under it, jumping through a portal, thus escaping Outworld. Since his escape, Chi has unlocked the secret of the Ancient Runestone, and discovered the ancient undefeatable army of the fallen, forgotten Dragon King. We are then shown Quan Chi and Shang Tsung shaking hands, as they have formed an alliance. With their combined power, they set out to overpower the only two things that could prevent their total domination of the two realms. We are shown Quan Chi and Shang Tsung walking down a walkway toward a throne containing Shao Kahn. After showing a false sense of allegiance, they spring their attack. Shan Kahn's bloody helmet tumbles down the stairs, signifying Kahn's death. Tsung and Chi then travel to Earthrealm through a mystical portal, only sorcerers and deities can travel. We are shown Liu Kang practicing once again at the Wu Shi Academy. Kung Lao is walking behind Kang, and a split second later, he morphs into Shang Tsung. It is revealed that it has been Tsung's desire to dethrone Kang as Mortal Kombat's champion. The fight between them begins. Liu kicks Tsung twice in the stomach, then blocks a punch, and comes down on Tsung's head with a fist of his own. With Shang Tsung down, Quan Chi comes up from behind and fires a glowing green skull into the back of Liu Kang. With Liu Kang on the ground recovering, Tsung walks up behind Kang, and proceeds to snap his neck in a very gruesome manner. A trickle of blood runs down Kang's left cheek as he falls to the ground...dead. Tsung proceeds to absorb Liu Kang's soul from his fallen corpse. Tsung and Chi return to Outworld to use the souls of conquered warriors to fuel their resurrection of the Dragon King's Army. With the resurrection of this army, they will be unstoppable. We are then shown Raiden and the rest of the mortals: Sonya, Sub-Zero, Johnny Cage, Frost, Kung Lao, and Jax sitting around a campfire. Raiden reveals he has relinquished his status of Elder God, to once again return to Earth and lead all the mortals into battle, against two of their most hated adversaries, Shang Tsung and Quan Chi. They must act now. They must stop this Deadly Alliance. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= III. Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance Review -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Let me start this review off by saying "WOW!" I have waited many a year to finally get my greedy hands on this title. Now with my fingers wrapped tightly around the controller and with many, many hours poured into the game already, I can finally review what could possibly be the best fighting game available. It has everything it needs in order to become the best fighting game around. It offers many innovative ideas, ridiculous amounts of unlockables, many DVD extras, and a fighting style so deep, it makes my head spin thinking off all the kombo variations. I can't even begin to explain all of the nuances that make this game so great. So without further ado, I present you with my personal Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance review for the PlayStation 2, Xbox and GameCube. (*NOTE* I will have a separate review up for the Game Boy Advance edition when it becomes available *NOTE*) When you first boot up the game, the player is treated to a smooth FMV sequence chronicling Shang Tsung and Quan Chi's quest for power. They have happened upon the great Dragon King's long lost army of the dead, and strive to breathe life back into it, literally. In order to do this, they need souls, and many of them. Their quest is to seek out as many people as possible and steal their souls to fuel their army. Their first stop is Shao Kahn in Outworld. They double team him, and steal his soul, which is "flown" straight into the chest of a soldier in the Dragon Army. If they can kill Shao Kahn, boss of Mortal Kombat II, III, UMK3, and MKT so easily, who is to stop them? Another one of Mortal Kombat's beloved characters is also killed off, which I detail in the "The Story of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance" section. With the defeat of Shao Kahn,and Liu Kang, all hope seems lost to stop this Deadly Alliance. All hope is not lost, as Raiden relinquishes his status as Elder God to once again lead the mortals into battle against Shang Tsung and Quan Chi. The battle starts with twelve (12) immediately selectable fighters. The "default" characters should not disappoint, as there are many returning fan favorites including: Sub-Zero and Scorpion, as well as newcomers: Bo Rai Cho, Li Mei, Kenshi, and Mavado. Likewise, there are nine (9) secret characters that appear on the select screen, but are blacked out. One must unlock them in the Krypt using earned kurrency. Each character possesses three fighting styles unique to that fighter; they have two hand-to-hand styles along with a weapon style. This approach to the genre is not only the most innovative thing since the Fatality, but it also adds bottomless depth to an already huge move arsenal. Anything is possible with the amount of moves each character has at his or her disposal. I was overwhelmed with how much each character is capable of. It is very fun to come up with your own personal kombos spanning all three fighting styles. The kontrol in this game is top-notch, with responsive button commands, and a great deal of very impressive moves to pull off. It is the most fluid and polished Mortal Kombat yet. Fans of Soul Calibur beware, Mortal Kombat has stepped into the ring and is set to strip you of the title of fighting game king. The most noticeable improvement to the series is the graphics engine. I was in awe at how much detail went into, not only the characters, but the backgrounds as well. There is so much detail, I notice something new going on in the arena almost every time I play. The characters' clothing moves swiftly behind them as they walk about the arena, hair flows in the wind, and they even leave bloody footprints in their wake. The most impressive character detail I think, is the mist that radiates from Sub-Zero's mouth as he breathes, and the mist coming from his hands as he fights. It is a very cool effect, and adds to the realism that he is a very cold fighter. The blood is also by far, the best blood in any fighting game to date. You can actually see the red stuff slowly dripping down characters' bodies as they fight; as it flings off them, it splatters on the ground leaving a puddle. The coolest thing of all, is that the blood litters the ground throughout the entire match, not just a round, but the entire match. It is very cool to survey your surroundings noticing bloody footprints, and trails of blood littered throughout the arena. After each match the camera gets a close-up of the character as he/she perform their winning pose, and then you can actually see bloody noses, tears and gashes in their face and so on. Fatalities are back, but are also one of the drawbacks this game has. The Fatalities are good, but just not original enough. I was expecting very gory (which some of them are) and violent deaths. What we are treated to are unoriginal, uninspired death animations that aren't as impressive as they could have been. The graphics in this game are some of the best, if not the best, I have ever seen in a fighting game. Midway took their time to perfect this engine, from the impressive blood effects, to the constantly evolving backgrounds, Midway gets huge props from me. The booming announcer from Mortal Kombat 4 is back in this sequel, and I am not complaining. I thought he was the best announcer since MKII, and I was elated when I heard his voice the first time. It is very loud and echoes throughout the room, when you choose your character or start a match. Nothing is more satisfying than hearing him scream "Finish Him" after a match concludes. The background music to the game is a blast from the past. It mostly resembles Mortal Kombat II's somewhat mellow soundtrack, mixed in with Mortal Kombat 3's techno music. The music is varied enough that one won't sicken of it right away. Dan Forden comes through again with a great mix of techno and mellow music to compliment an already impressive announcer. The sound effects are equally as good. From the grunts and groans of the male and female fighters, to the clanging of weapons, it is a real treat to the ears. The soundtrack to this game is very good, and just adds to the fun of the game as you kick the hell out of someone. Once again Dan Forden is the man, as he has been since Mortal Kombat II, coming up with brilliant background music to fight to. Toasty! Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is the deepest fighter on the market today. It has enough unlockables to keep a player playing for months. The Krypt, one of the coolest features I have seen in a fighting game, is an enourmous room filled with 676 different koffins that contain secret characters, alternate costumes, fan art, designer pictures, extra fighting arenas, etc. The koffins can only be opened by spending the appropriate number of koins earned in the Arcade and Konquest modes. Each koffin has a price value, and a kurrency type. The more expensive koffins, obviously have the good stuff, while the not so expensive koffins might contain nothing. Not only that, the Konquest mode spans 218 separate missions for the player to engage in. The Konquest mode follows the player through eight (8) introductory missions. After those eight (8) are completed, the game allows you to select a character and "train" through ten (10) additional missions specific to that character. Along the way, your selected character's backstory is revealed, and you earn kurrency used to open koffins in the Krypt. The game also contains a very helpful training mode, allowing you to practice the deadliest of kombos, also providing the player with a very detailed move list for each character. As one can tell, the sinlge player experience is very satisfying in MK:DA. The Versus mode is equally as exciting. It is a one-on-one fight to the death, but Midway ups the ante one more time, as they have included a new wager aspect. Before each player selects his or her character, they have the option of putting up some of their kurrency against the other player. If they win the match they win their opponent's kurrency. It is time to see who can put their money where their mouth is in this game. Nothing is more satisfying than beating a buddy who brags about how good he is, but then goes on to lose 1,500 gold koins to his opponent. Brilliant. As stated many a time in the above paragraphs, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance simply excels in every category, that makes a video game fun. It has one of the best, if not the best, graphics engine in any fighting game, featuring spectacular blood effects, clothing effects, and insanely detailed backgrounds. It couldn't look much better than it does. The sound is equally as impressive as the announcer from Mortal Kombat 4 has a made a triumphant return to "narrate" this entry into the series. The single player experience is VERY rewarding as the game provides the player with so many unlockables, you don't even know where to start. Incredibly deep replay value is presented in this new edition of Mortal Kombat. The fun factor cannot be denied. Every time I play the game, I find something new that I grow to love. Fighting games cannot get much better than this. I applaud Midway's valiant efforts of trying to regain the crown as the top fighter in town, and I believe wholeheartedly, they have accomplished just that with the release of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= IV. PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube Default Controls -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance's control setup is much different than the previous entries in the series. You have four basic attacks, two punch, and two kick, replacing HP,LP,LK, and HK. They are now just called Attack 1,2,3, and 4. There is also a special move button, which, when pressed, allows the character to Power Up, Taunt, perform a throw, or stab your opponent with some of the weapons featured in the game. There is still the traditional Block button, but the addition of a fighting style button is the real meat of this game. Unfortunately, the run feature of past games has disappeared with a more traditional dash back and forth, in and out manuever set into place. I go more in-depth on the fighting style, hand-to-hand, and weapon combat in the "Basic Weapon and Hand-to-Hand Moves" section. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= PlayStation 2 Controls -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walk Forward - Directional Button Right Walk Backward - Directional Button Left Walk Out -Directional Button Up Walk In - Directional Button Down Jump Forward - Directional Buttons Up and Right Jump Backward - Directional Buttons Up and Left Attack 1 - Square Attack 2 - Triangle Attack 3 - X Attack 4 - Circle Special Attack - R1 Block - R2 Change Fighting Style - L1 -=-=-=-=-=-=- Xbox Controls -=-=-=-=-=-=- Walk Forward - Directional Button Right Walk Backward - Directional Button Left Walk Out - Directional Button Up Walk In - Directional Button Down Jump Forward - Directional Buttons Up and Right Jump Backward - Directional Buttons Up and Left Attack 1 - X Attack 2 - Y Attack 3 - A Attack 4 - B Special Attack - Black Button Block - Right Trigger Change Fighting Style - Left Trigger -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- GameCube Controls -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Walk Forward - Directional Button Right Walk Backward - Directional Button Left Walk Out - Directional Button Up Walk In - Directional Button Down Jump Forward - Directional Buttons Up and Right Jump Backward - Directional Buttons Up and Left Attack 1 - B Attack 2 - Y Attack 3 - A Attack 4 - X Special Attack - Z Block - R Change Fighting Style - L -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Game Boy Advance Controls -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Walk Forward - Directional Button Right Walk Backward - Directional Button Left Jump - Directional Button Up Duck - Directional Button Down Jump Forward - Directional Buttons Up and Right Jump Backward - Directional Buttons Up and Left Attack 1 - A Attack 2 - B Block - R Change Fighting Style - L -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= V. Basic Weapon and Hand-to-Hand Moves -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Hand-to-hand fighting in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance has made a big leap over previous games. The two hand-to-hand fighting styles per character have around 25-30 moves each. All of the moves for the different styles are totally different. They each have their own unique set of combos to go along with them. It is very fun to switch in and out of the styles at will creating new combos every minute. Weapons have made their return to Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. When a player takes out his/her weapon, their fighting style changes to suit the weapon they are currently wielding. The weapons also have their own unique set of moves, a la the hand-to-hand fighting styles. Some of the weapons included in the game are: Kali Sticks, various Swords, Butterfly Swords, Machetes, and a Kori Blade. Unlike Mortal Kombat 4, the weapons in the game cannot be dropped,nor can they be thrown. Another nuance new to the series is being able to stab your opponent in the thighs, or stomach. For example, Li Mei's weapons are a pair of sais, which can be stabbed into her opponent, causing them to stay imbedded, for the duration of the round. As the opponent moves around, blood spurts out, and the player gradually loses health. It is a very cool new feature. The Power Up is also a neat new addition. At just about any time during the fight, the player can hit the Special Move button, and the player will grow in size for about 1 second, shrinking back down to normal size. This allows the player to move a little faster, and inflict more damage per hit. This adds a new layer of strategy to the game. The Taunt is the other new addition to the actual combat of this game. When the Special Move button is pressed, and when the character is in a certain fighting style, he/she taunts their opponent. This isn't just for show either, as when a taunt is successfully completed, the character regains a little lost health. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= VI. Fighting Style Explanation -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance allows characters to switch between three different fighting styles per character at will. Each fighter possesses two hand-to-hand fighting styles, as well as one weapon style. The fighting styles add a whole new and innovative idea to the Mortal Kombat franchise. The differing styles will allow for some very high combo strings, as players will be able to initiate a combo in one style, then switch to another fighting style to finish up the combo. Some of the fighting styles include: Hapkido, Kenpo, Muay Thai, Tae Kwon Do, Lui He Ba Fa, Shaolin Fist, Crane, Aikido (which is ALL throws!) as well as a host of others. In some fighting styles, what would be a punch, will be a kick, in another. Players will have to know their character pretty well in order to be successful in using his or her fighting styles to their advantage. As in the previous Mortal Kombats, the number of combo hits, and the percentage of damage dished out, pops out of the corner of the screen. Also, as in Mortal Kombat 4, the MAXIMUM DAMAGE feature returns, thus denying players the ability to dole out over 50% damage combos. When the fighting style button is pressed, your character switches in and out of one of his/her three fighting styles. For example, Quan Chi has the Tang Soo Do, and Escrima fighting styles. He starts out in the Tang Soo Do style, and when pressed switches to Escrima. When the button is pressed again, he goes into his Broadswords style, taking out double broadswords. As one can tell, MK:DA's control setup and fighting style switching is very involved, and offers the player a near unlimited number of combo variations. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= VII.Fighting Style Descriptions: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Each character in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance possesses two hand-to-hand and one weapon style. These unique fighting styles actually exist in the world today. They each have a rich backstory that is told through the Konquest Mode. Help from the Official Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance Strategy Guide Signature Series, by Brady Games, and the actual game itself, was taken in the compilation of these descriptions. Below, I will list each characters' three styles as well as their history. =-=-=-=-=-=- Shang Tsung: =-=-=-=-=-=- >Snake: The Snake Style is hard to trace historically, because it is incorporated into so many Chinese systems, including Shaolin and Many Chinese family styles. >Crane: Although taught and included in many Chinese systems, the Crane originated in Tibet. Crane is considered one of the oldest "classical" styles and is incorporated into the Shaolin system of styles. It's considered to be an internal style. >Straight Sword: Chinese straight sword is incorporated into a number of Chinese styles including Tai Chi, Wushu, and others. =-=-=-=-=-= Bo Rai Cho: =-=-=-=-=-= >Drunken Fist: There are many varities of "drunken" style kung fu. There are both northern and southern version of "eight immortals drunken kung fu," "drunken monkey," and "drunken kung fu" and many others. The earliest reference to any drunken style is in the Sung Dynasty to "Lu Chi Shen Drunkard Kung Fu." >Mi Zong: Translated as Lost Track created by Ceng Juxiao a Northern Long Fist Style, which utilizes both hard and soft movements and many changes, turns and reversals. >Jojutsu: Jojutsu is the Japanese art of the short staff (4 ft. staff). Muso Gonnosuke developed it in the early 1600's after his loss to Miyamoto Musashi (a very famous swordsman).

The terms Escrima, Arnis and Kali are used to describe the many "stick" arts native to the Philippines. Because of the jungle-like environment on the islands, the development of arts that utilize sticks and/or long knives (i.e. machete) was natural. >Broadswords: The double broadsword is similar in use and history to the single broadsword. The use of two weapons was generally considered more advanced and provides some combat advantages. =-=-=-= Li Mei: =-=-=-= >Baji Quan: Baji Quan is a 500 year old Chinese art, having been handed down through various groups over the centuries. Baji Quan is actively being taught to the Taiwan Military Police. Baji Quan means "eight extremitites fist" and is primarily a close range style.

Later elements of traditional Korean arts were incorporated into the style. >Pi Gua: Pi Gua means "armor wearing boxing" and was originally beleived to be a subset of Tong Bei QUan (white ape). The style is usually attributed to Wu Zhong of the Hebei Province of China. Baji Quan and Pi Gua have long been closely associated and are often taught together. >Ninja Sword: A favored weapon of the Shinobi, it's similar to the katana but with a straighter blade. It was made more for piercing the armor of samurai than slicing. =-=-=- Sonya: =-=-=- >Kenpo: Kenpo is a western style modern variation of Japanese Karate. Kenpo was originally introduced to the Hawaiian Islands as kenpo jujutsu and later adapted into wnat is now called Kenpo or Kenpo Karate. Currently, Kenpo is popular in Hawaii, Europe, New Zealand and the Americas. >Tae Kwon Do: Japan occupied and heavily influenced Korea from 1910 through the end of WWII. At that time, Korea gained its independence and began reclaiming its martial culture. Several kwans arose, which were later combined into Tae Soo Do in 1955. In 1957 the stlye was renamed Tae Kwon Do. Japanese occupation influenced Tae Kwon Do through the introduction of Shotokan. Initially taught to the military, Tae Kwon Do is now a widely practiced sport. In many respects, Tae Kwon Do is the Korean equivalent of Karate, with more emphasis placed on kicking. >Kali Sticks: Kali Sticks is a martial art of the Philippines. The terms Escrima, Arnis and Kali are used to descrive the many "stick" arts native to the Philippines. The jungle environment on the islands leads to the natural development of arts which utitlize sticks and/or long knives. =-=-=-= Kenshi: =-=-=-= >Tai Chi: The literal translation of Tai Chi Chuan is "supreme ultimate fist." Chang San-Feng is credited with developing the 13 postures that form the basis of all modern Tai Chi.

Often fought on a raised platform, this Chinese martial art is a true free fighting style.

In recent years, this martial art has become a style in and of itself and has evolved into one of the most deadly styles known. >Katana: The Katana is the traditional Japanese long sword used by the samurai. Many styles of swordsmanship utilized these swords. Modern martial art forms that use the Katana are broadly referred to as kenjutsu, kendo, and iaido. =-=-=-= Mavado: =-=-=-= >Long Fist: Long Fist dates back to the Sung Dynasty. Long Fist is a composite style built from elements of various other northern styles of kung fu. Historically, Northern Chinese tended to be taller, with longer limbs. As a result, most martial arts of the north, including Long Fist, evolved in a way that made use of their longer reach. This manifested itself in attacks that tended to be longer in range than those found elsewhere. >Wing Chun: Wing Chun was invented by a senior kung fu master and Shaolin "nun" named Ng Mui. Her objective was to combine the best elements of the other Shaolin styles into one master style. The style draws heavily from Tiger Dragon, Snake, and White Crane. >Hookswords: Sometimes called the "Tiger's Head Hooked Swords," the hooked swords date from the Warring States period in China. This is a "Northern" style weapon and had been adopted by a large number of Chinese training styles. =-=-=-=-=-=- Johhny Cage: =-=-=-=-=-=- >Karate: Karate is a named used for a group of martial arts developed on Okinawa, before the island was integrated into Japan. Historically, Okinawa enjoyed a great trade economy based on shipping, which exposed the locals to martial arts from many parts of Aisa, including Japan and China. Significant styles of karate include: Shotokan, Shorin-ryu and Goju-ryu. Karate was introduced to Japan in the early 20th century and later to the rest of the world, where it continues to include many other martial art forms. >Jeet Kune Do: Bruce Lee developed Jeet Kune Do in 1967. The literal meaning of Jeet Kune Do is "the way in the interceptin fist." Wing Chun, Tai Chi Chuan, Hung Gar and Chin Na heavily influenced Jeet Kune Do among others. >Nunchaku: This weapon is most often associated with Okinawan Kobudo (weapons arts), but is also seen occasionally in Chinese, Philippine, Korean and Japanese arts. The nunchaku were originally a horse bit used for farming. During the 1500's the local government outlawed the ownership and use of weapons so locals turned to farm instruments to protect themselves. =-=-=-=-= Sub-Zero: =-=-=-=-= >Shotokan: A style of Karate, Shotokan has its roots in Okinawa. Master Funakoshi Gichin founded Shotokan karate in 1936 in Tokyo. It is more linear and can be a very aggressive and devastating style. >Dragon: A number of kung-fu "styles" make use of the term "Dragon Form" or "Dragon Style." The Dragon form is one of the "Shaolin ten-animal form" of Kwan Tak Hing. It's also one of the "five-patterns" of Xing Yi. The Dragon form can be found in many other Chinese systems of combat. >Kori Blade: Using a technique perfected by Grand Masters of the Lin Kuei, Sub-Zero forms his Kori Blade by flash freezing surrounding water vapor. The sword is forged of solid unbreakable ice. A masterful weapon, it's hevay and extremely sharp. It can be used to either bludgeon an opponent into submission or cut them into ribbons. =-=-= Kano: =-=-= >Xing Yi: Meaning "mind form," Xing Yi is a simple and practical style of kung-fu which originated in the San-Shih province of China. This is a northern Chinese system which relies on short basic forms of training. This art has long been associated with Ba Gua and the two are often taught together. >Aikido: This is a Japanese martial art developed in the first half of the 20th century by Morihei Uyeshiba.

It is the primary weapon of Wing Chun and also taught in Hung Gar, as well as other styles. =-=-=-=-= Kung Lao: =-=-=-=-= >Shaolin Fist: The Shaolin Buddhist temple was established in China about 500 A.D. In about 539 A.D. a holy man named Bodhidharma left his monastery in Southern India to spread the Buddhist faith to China. During his travels, he visited a Shaolin monastery. The monks there were in such bad shape physically that they could not meditate properly, so Bodhidharma developed an exercise program to get them into shape. The program included several Indian fighting style elements. Over time, a Kung Fu style grew out of this training, aided by the fact that many of the priests were retired soldiers and generals. >Mantis: This is a newer martial art, developed in 1600 A.D. by Wang Lang in the Ming Dynasty in Northern China. Wang Lang based this martial art on observations he made of a praying mantis fighting a cicada. The art later splintered into a number of different variations including Seven-Star, Plum Blossum, Six Combinations, and Secret Door. For the most part, Seven-Star is a hard style avoiding direct opposition to the opponent's energy. This style is part of the Shaolin system of martial arts. >Broadsword: The Broadsword is known as the marshall of weapons, the arm of foot soldiers and Manchurian officials. Broadswords vary in length, but should generally reach the user's eyebrow when held upright along the arm. It's categorized as a short weapon. It usually has a two-edged blade and is designed for slashing rather than thrusting. -=-=-=- Nitara: -=-=-=- >Leopard: The techniques simulate those of a Leopard, stressing the importance of free movement and quick actions. Not as strong as the Tiger style, but it is superior in its swiftness and jumping ablility. >Fu Jow Pai: With an emphasis on balance and technique, Fu Jow Pai mimics the vicious movements of the rare Black Tiger. In fact, the original name was Hark Fu Moon, or Black Tiger System. It was renamed by Wong Bil Hong in 1934 and was hidden for many years. However, many years later, the knowledge, and training, of the system was brought to the public's attention where it has become a legitimate and recognized style in China. >Kama: The Kama is a farm implement used for rice harvesting and was adopted as a weapon in China, Okinawa and Japan. In China and Japan the Kama was often used in conjunction with a chain, to encircle the opponents, while the Okinawans preferred to use two Kama together. The Kama is one of the five principle weapons of the Okinawan art of Kobudo/Kobujutsu. -=-=-=-= Drahmin: -=-=-=-= >Netherealm: From the little that is known of the Netherealm, one can say that it's a deadly, torturous, and evil place safe for no one. Anyone who spends time there will be hard-pressed to create a barrier powerful enough to keep the forces of Netherealm at bay. Those that succumb to the incredible powers and tortures that the 5th plane of the Netherealm contains - and live - become incredible warriors that possess newfound concepts in battle and fighting. Of course, all of these ideas focus on pain and destruction. >Oni: The term "oni" means "demon" or "ogre" in the Japanese language. Truly, this fighting style was derived from Drahmin's time spent among the denizens of the Netherealm and the loss of his humanity to forces beyond his control. The power of the Oni Style comes from a built-in rage that is difficult to suppress once it's been unleased. Much like a dam, once a crack's been created in the facade, ther's no power on earth that can hold the flood of rushing water, or in this case, the flood of burning hot rage. >Iron Club: Much less than a true fighting style, the Iron Club offers nothing more than the ability to pummel an opponent to a pulp of flesh. True, this is an incredible weapon, and when the right hand is encased within the confines of this Iron Club, it can be used to completely crush an opponent to dust. Drahmin, apparently, is not only right for this weapon, but the perfect choice to wield it. -=-=-=-= Hsu Hao: -=-=-=-= >Shuai Chiao: Shuai Chiao is the oldest martial art in China. It has a history of over 2,000 years - although some claim that it dates back much farther. >Wrestling: Perhaps the oldest martial art in the existence of western culture, it was initially developed by the Romans and Greeks as a method to display one's strength and fighting prowess. Eventually, it turned into its own form of self-defense and branched into multiple styles. Fighters grapple and try to attain a position of advantage over one another. They learn to control their center of gravity, how to take their opponent to the ground, react to an opponent's actions, and take advantage of their mistakes. Greco-Roman and Freestyle are two of these that are still used in the best known world-wide competition, the Olympics. >Sun Moon: An exotic weapon of the Chinese martial arts, the Sun Moon Spears originated in Mongolia. As a pair, these bladed weapons can be extremely efficient when used in combat. When one hand blocks an incoming attack, it can catch the weapon and keep it from attacking, or be used to disarm the opponent totally. However, the true beauty comes into play when one notices that the other hand is left free to attack. This is when the versatility of the Sun Moon Spears really shines. With the ability to thrust, stab, slash, or rake an opponent, the Sun Moon Spears' deadly qualities are easy to see. -=-=-= Frost: -=-=-= >Tong Bei: The name Tong Bei, or Tong Bei Quan, can be translated as: "fist of spreading power from the back." The origin of this fighting style is unclear. One legend claims it originated in the 3rd or 4th century B.C. by a man named Yuan Gong. Another says it was created in the mid 900's A.D. by a daoist named Lu Yunging. Modern history attributes this style to the Zhejiang province in China in the 1900's. The style is based on the five types of palm strike, each associated with one of the five elements: earth, metal, water, tree, and fire. >Yuan Yang: Yuan Yang Quan, or Mandarin Duck Fist, is aa art rarely seen outside of China and as such, information is scarce. Although there is little available material on the Mandarin Duck style as a whole, there are a number of references to the kicking methods it employs. A number of other Chinese styles adopted "Mandarin Duck Legs" of this style as they were reputed to be very effective. >Daggers: By flash freezing water vapor, Frost can form intricate solid objects. She doesn't have the same subtle control and mastery over her ice powers as Sub-Zero does, so she chooses to use the simple deadliness of the Double Daggers. Armed with these blades of ice, Frost can slice an opponent to ribbons. When a kombatant feels the burn of a cut from one of Frost's daggers, it's not from the rending of their flesh, but from the cold edge of the blade ripping into their muscle. -=-= Jax: -=-= >Muay Thai: Thai kickboxing is one of the oldest martial art forms. Muay Thai's origin along with much of Thai history was lost during the invasion and sacking of the archives by Burmese army. Muay Thai was originally the close quarters combat skills used by the Thai army. During times of peace, memberso fthe army were "kept busy" by being encourage to participate in Muay Thai competitions. Later the art grew into a popular sport. Today it's considered a very practical, effective boxing style. It has developed the same sporting interest in many counties today that boxing enjoys in the US. >Judo: Around 1882, Jigoro Kano developed Judo based on Japanese jujutsu with an emphasis on self-defense and sport competition. In Judo, opponents use balance, body weight, with minimal physical effort, to throw or pin each other or hold one another in a lock. Submission holds also play a key role in Judo. One's gi can often be used against them or an opponent as a choke. Judo has become an extremely strategic martial art in recent history and has many practicioners. >Tonfa: The Tonfa was originally the handle of a hand-operated grain mill used on farms. Seen on the belts of police officers across the US, the Tonfa has also been adopted by Police agencies around the world. -=-=-=- Kitana: -=-=-=- >Eagle Claw: The Eagle Claw system of kung fu originated in southern China during the Sung Dynasty. Eagle Claw began as the "108 Fighting Techniques" taught by Ngok Fei. Sometime between 1368 and 1644, a monk named Lai Chin, combined Eagle Claw with Faan Tzi into what was the basis for modern Northern Eagle Claw. >Ba Gua: Ba Gua Zhang, translated to Eight Trigram Palm, is a relatively new Chinese martial art, having been developed in the late 1800's. Dong Hai-Chuan, a Taoist monk of Lung Men Sect, developed Ba Gua Zhang. The circular movements of the art are attributed to the circular chanting meditations done by the Lung Men Sect. Starting in the early 1900's, Ba Gua Zhang has been associated with Hsing-I. Currently, there are five major branches of the style: Cheng, In, Ma, Song, and Lui. >Steel Fans: Also known as "Ogi," Kitana's weapon of choice is the deadly Steel Fan. While many martial arts masters use a single fan, Kitana's prowess is such that she uses one in each hand. They're easily concealable and can be used in their open and closed states. Kitana's fans are tipped with sharpened daggers to add to the deadly finesse with which she wields them. -=-=-=- Raiden: -=-=-=- >Nan Chuan: Nan Chuan is a composite style built from elements of various other southern styles of kung fu. Historically, Southern Chinese tended to be shorter, with shorter limbs. As a result, the martial arts of the south evolved in a way that accommodates their shorter reach. This manifested itself in attacks that are most effective at short to middle range. Nan Chuan contains a greater number and variety of hand techniques, and fewer leg techniques. >Jujutsu: Jujutsu is a term used to refer to unarmed Japanese combat. Historically there are more than 750 documented varieties of Jujutsu. In general, Jujutsu tends to be comprehensive in the sense that they teach hand and foot strikes, throwing, joint-locks and ground fighting. Today Jujutsu is most commonly associated with throws, joint-locks and ground fighting. >Staff: The cudgel (long staff) has existed as a weapon since man first started fighting with hand weapons. -=-=-=-= Reptile: -=-=-=-= >Hung Gar: Hung Gar, namely "Tiger Fist," is the synthesis of Southern Shaolin styles of Chinese kung fu, and is based on the movements of the tiger and the Crane. Hung Hei Goon is believed to have been the original developer of the style. he bagan openly teacking it about 1813. >Crab: Taught to Reptile by his ancestors, the style imitates the side movements and claw attacks of the crab. >Kirehashi: Much like a typical Broadsword, the Kirehashi has some minor difference that allow it to be used more efficiently by Reptile. Its weight and balance are changed from the sleek and slim blade of Kung Lao, to a more hefty and cruel instrument. Still, it retains a sharp edge with which it can be used to slash an opponent to shreds. -=-=-= Cyrax: -=-=-= >Ninjitsu: Translated as The Art of Stealth, Ninjitsu is a term used to describe all the arts taught to a ninja warrior including armed and unarmed combat, as well as camouflage and espionage. It is still a widely debated subject, but the term ninja has many possible histories. Some think that they were mercenaries who trained in stealth and martial arts and were employed as spies, saboteurs, and assassins. Others counter this argument and state that they were actually samurai warriors who needed to cover their faces to take such drastic action and hide who they really were. Whatever the derivation, ninja has become a word that instills fear and an appreciation for their talent. >Sambo: Sambo is a style of wrestling developed by the Soviets in the early 1930's, originally conveived as a means of unarmed crowd control for the police. The art is a distillation of over 20 folk arts native to the Soviet Union as well as Greco-Roman Wrestling, Judo, Jujutsu and Free Style Wrestling. >Pulse Blade: This weapon is standard issue for the Lin Kuei cyborg Ninjas and is a deadly instrument in and of itself. The Special Forces tech department further modified Cyrax's Light Sword into a Pulse Blade, which now has more power and has become a truly devastating weapon. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- VIII. Modes of Play: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= -=-=-=- Arcade: -=-=-=- "Face opponents across Outworld to defeat the Deadly Alliance." The player faces off against other CPU controlled players at varying difficulty levels, earning kredits to be spent in the Krypt. As you progress through Arcade Mode, you unlock the character's ending. -=-=-=- Versus: -=-=-=- "Play against a friend...........or enemy." This mode is the standard 1 on 1 battle between you and a friend. A new addition to this mode is the gambling aspect. The game allows you to create a profile for yourself. It keeps track of EVERYTHING: how many times you've won/lost, how many kredits you currently own, etc. The kredits you build up on your profile allow the player to gamble them on a fight. For example, my friend and I are playing versus mode. I have 1,000 kredits, and he has 1,500. I can bet him any amount of my kredits against his. If I win the battle then I win his kredits to be spent in the Krypt. This idea is something the fighting game genre has never seen. It is very innovative, and it adds much replay value to the Versus Mode. -=-=-=-=- Practice: -=-=-=-=- "Learn the moves that will make you a master kombatant." The Practice mode is like any other. It allows you to practice your selected fighters special moves and kombos. It also features a hand move list for every fighting style. -=-=-=-=- Konquest: -=-=-=-=- "Travel on a long journey, earning kurrency as you face hundreds of challenges and obstacles." This mode most closely resembles Soul Calibur's Mission Mode, where you are required to overcome certain objectives to earn what is being dubbed as kurrency. There are eight (8) introductory missions. After those are completed, the game allows you to choose a character and go through ten (10) more missions specific to that character. There are 218 Konquest missions for the player to overcome. -=-=-=-=-= The Krypt: -=-=-=-=-= "Buy characters, arenas, and extras with your earned kurrency." This is a shop of sorts. The Krypt is a VERY large room, containing 676 different koffins. Each koffin has a price on the front of it. You can spend your kurrency on these koffins to unlock bonus material in the game. Some of the unlockables are secret characters, additional character costumes, fighting arenas, concept art, character renders, funny snippets of the fighters, like "Kooking with Scorpion," and numerous other goodies. Some of the koffins do not contain anything, so be careful and choose wisely. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Player Profile: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=- "Create a Profile. View Profiles. Erase a Profile." This is where you store stats for your characters, including number of battles won and lost, as well as the number of Fatalities you have performed.

They also have the Adema music video, "Immortal" here for viewing, as well as a History of Mortal Kombat package, along with various developer interviews, including one with the man himself, Ed Boon. >>>>>>>>>>> Mini Games: <<<<<<<<<<< -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Test Your Might: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= As many of you probably remember, the original Mortal Kombat featured a mini-game aptly title, "Test Your Might." The "game" happened before a match was to begin, and the point was to mash the buttons as fast as possible to raise a green meter on the left side of the screen. After the meter passed a pre-designated marker, the player would have to hit the Block button in order for their fighter to attempt to break the item. The items consisted of basic wood, stone, ruby, and all the way up to diamond. It was a very fun little diversion from the main game. Test Your Might makes a very welcomed addition to Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. The main concept is still intact; one has to break a certain item in a given time by mashing buttons wildly. There are about 7 or 8 different items to break in this new iteration. They range from bamboo all the way up to diamond again. There is not really much to say other than the fact you have to again mash buttons wildly to raise the meter past the pre-designated spot and hit the Block button to break the item. If you were to stop mashing buttons, the meter will suddenly drop, and you will have to regain its momentum back up to the marker needed to break the item. Test Your Might rewards the player with Onyx and Platinum Koins to be spent in the Krypt. Remember, Onyx and Platinum Koins are the hardest to obtain because you only receive them from Test Your Might/Sight. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Test Your Sight: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Test Your Sight is a new addition to the Mortal Kombat franchise. The basic premise is that of a "which nutshell is the quarter under" type game. You initially start off with 3 "cups." As the difficulty rises, you are presented with more possible "cups" the symbol can be hidden under. Before the action begins, the game shows you a Mortal Kombat Dragon symbol, and crossbone symbols. There is only one Mortal Kombat Dragon symbol. That is the one you need to pay attention to. The symbols then disappear under their cups. They then begin to move around the table in a rather unorthodox motion so as to throw your eyes off the one containing the MK Dragon symbol. They eventually stop, and you have to guess which one it is under. If you guess correctly, you receive Onyx or Platinum Koins to be spent in the Krypt. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= IX. Arena Descriptions -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= *NOTE* The arenas listed here are from the official website of MK:DA, and from the Kontent mode section under "Arenas." There are only four featured on the website, but there are definitely more to be seen. All the arenas are accompanied by a "story" of sorts explaining what the levels are all about. *NOTE* -=-=-=-=-= Acid Bath: -=-=-=-=-= "Having regained Shao Kahn's favor, Shang Tsung was allowed to freely roam the Outworld. As a base of operations, he constructed a small dwelling. In the center of the dwelling lays a courtyard surrounded by acid where he would defeat and consume the souls of his captive enemies." -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Arena Description: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This arena features a courtyard with a circular platform in the middle surround by four "Buddha" statues with acid flowing in their stomachs. They can actually "throw-up" the acid at you during the matches, causing your character damage. The circular platform is surrounded by a "moat" of acid. The sun is setting in the background, with a Shaolin Temple and random pillars adorning the countryside. Two massive doors on either side of the platform are apparently the way into this arena. The doors belong to another massive temple with ancient carvings and lights in the front. -=-=-=-=-=-= Lava Shrine: -=-=-=-=-=-= "In this hidden underground shrine, holy men incubate the egg of the last Great Dragon. Legend tells that upon its return, the Dragon King will rule Outworld once more." -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Arena Description: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This level is situated in an underground lair with two massive statues of demon heads with huge ears spilling lava out of their mouths. The fighting plain features hundreds of cobblestone blocks together surrounded entirely by lava, with a huge dragon egg atop a shrine, with dragon wings on either side of the gigantic egg. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Wu Shi Academy: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=- "Suspended above a symbolic abyss, warriors hone their martial art skill on this stretched canvas arena. "Five Masters" Academy has trained many of Outworld's heroes." -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Arena Description: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Five massive Shaolin Monk statues, each holding a very thick rope, are stretching a large canvas featuring the Mortal Kombat Dragon symbol in the middle. There is a body of water under the stretched canvas. In the background is the actual "Five Masters" Academy with Asian symbol flags on the sides, and many monks wandering around outside. -=-=-=-=-=-=-= Kuatan Palace: -=-=-=-=-=-=-= "Matters of great importance to the Shokan Race are brought before the pillars of Ancient Heroes in Goro's throne room." -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Arena Description: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Apparently another underground level. A walkway with a red carpeting extends to another circular platform surrounded by lava on all sides, featuring the Mortal Kombat Dragon symbol in the middle once again. In front of the fighting area is a throne with a ying yang symbol above it overlooking the outside of the palace. On the walls are two huge draperies also featuring ying yang symbols. There are six pillars, each featuring a different member of Goro's Shokan race. One has a scar similar to Sub-Zero's, and an eye patch. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- X. Individual Character Stories/Stats and Moves/Fatalities -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- The Character Select Screen has a new setup, not seen in the series, and looks great. It is 3x7, with the character portraits situated in the middle of the screen. When you highlight another character, his/her 3-D render is displayed to the left or right, depending on if your are player 1 or 2. In single player, when a character is highlighted, his/her profile is displayed.

I will have the characters' stats, story, endings, and Fatalities with very good detail in this section as well. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Performing a Fatality: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= At the end of a best 2 out of 3 round match, you will hear the announer scream: "Finish Him!" This means that it is time for a Fatality. You can hit the CS Button to swtich to the Fatality style, or you can input the command without the Fatality style locked in. Input the given button commands to perform the desired Fatality. Most, if not all, of the Fatalities featured in this game DO NOT require your character to be a certain distance from you fallen opponent. Just make sure you are not right up next to them, so as to not accidentally hit them while trying to perform a Fatality. Enjoy the gruesome ways Midway has come up with to further brutalize the human body. Watch the blood and bones fly.

Alternate Costume: Shang Tsung's alternate costume resembles his attire from Mortal Kombat II. He wears a red vest with no shirt underneath. His hair is also tied behind his head in a ponytail. He has an oriental hat on his head. He wears no gloves, and has gold wristbands on. A light colored belt, and red pants, with oriental symbols adorning the front and back round his costume out. (Shang Tsung's alternate costume is in koffin "ML" and costs 1,170 Gold Koins). Story: The sorcerer Shang Tsung was imprisoned in the depths of Shao Kahn's fortress, punished for failing to win the Mortal Kombat tournament in Earthrealm. Periodically he was released to perform tasks for the emperor, until he eventually regained Shao Kahn's favor and was given his freedom. He remained in Outworld risking his life to drain the souls of kombatants in order to sustain his youth. All this changed the day the sorcerer Quan Chi returned from the Netherrealm. =-=-=-=-=-==-=-= Snake Move List: =-=-=-=-=-==-=-= >Bai She Tu Xin: 1 >Cross Fang: Back - 1 >Low Palm: Down - 1 >Viper Strike: 2 >Gut Buster: Back - 2 >Twin Fang: Down - 2 >Qing She Chu Dong: Up - 2 >High Snap Kick: 3 >Twin Cobra: Down - 3 >Mid Kick: 4 >Quick Bite: Down - 4 >Eagle Pecking: Back - 4 >Back Flip: Special Move (SM) >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Spiritual Snake Tail: 2 - 3 >Blinding Strike: 2 - Back - 1 >Soul Catcher: 2 - Back - 4 >Serpent Touch: 4 - Back - 2 >Thrusting Fang: 1 - 1 - 1 >Rattle Snake: 1 - 1 - 3 >Hissing Strikes: 1 - 1 - 2 - 3 >Cold Blooded: 1 - 1 - 2 - SM >Poisonous Snake: 1 - 1 - 2 - 2 >Lethal Venom: 1 - 1 - 2 - Back - 4 >Snake Eyes: 1 - 1 - 2 - Back - 1 >Cobra Revenge: 1 - 1 - 4 - Back - 2 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Crane Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Chin Punch: 1 >Crane Neck: Down - 1 >Crane Wing: 2 >Strong Knee: Back - 2 >Back Fist: Down - 2 >Flapping Wing: 3 >Hop Sidekick: Back - 3 >Low Peck: Down - 3 >Spinning Sidekick: 4 >Spinning Crane Kick: Up - 4 >Sweeping Crane: Down - 4 >Reversal: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Crazy Wings: 3 - 3 - 2 >3-Hit Wings: 3 - 3 - 3 >Sidewinder: 3 - 3 - 4 >Triple Chin Punch: 1 - 1 - 1 >Death Bed: 1 - 1 - 1 - Change Style (CS) >Raging Beak: 1 - 1 - 1 - Up - 4 >Final Withdrawal: 3 - 3 - 3 - 1 - 1 - 1 - CS >Hunt Down: 3 - 3 - 3 - 1 - 1 - 1 - Up - 4 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Straight Sword Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Front Swipe: 1 >Lifting Swing: Up - 1 >Shin Slash: Down - 1 >Rising Slice: 2 >Lunge: Toward - 2 >Low 2-Hit Swipe: Down - 2 >Back Hand Lunge: Up - 2 >Foot Sword: 3 >Cross Strike: Back - 3 >Chest Slice: Down - 3 >Spinning Slice: 4 >Low Stab: Back - 4 >Sweeping Strike: Down - 4 >Impale: SM Kombo Chains: >Deadly Blade: 1 - 1 >Ancient Strike: 4 - 2 >Soul Sucker: Toward - 2 - 1 >Pain: 3 - Back - 3 >Master's Edge: 4 - 2 - 3 - Back - 3 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= > 3-D Fire: (Far) Back - Toward - 1 > 3-D Fire: (Close) Toward - Back - 1 > Straight Fire: Down - Back - 1 > Soul Steal: Down - Back - 3 Fatality: Up - Down - Up - Down - 2 Description: Shang Tsung emits a green energy beam from his hand that "strikes" his opponent. With the beam still being emmited, Shang then brings his hand in the air and down again, levitating his fallen opponent and then smashing them to the ground, leaving a huge puddle of blood, and "bloody popcorn." Shang does this two more times, and proceeds to jump on top of his fallen opponent's corpse releasing a green mist from the opponent. Shang then raises his arms in triumph as 5 or 6 "souls" escape from the fallen cadaver and are absorbed into Shang Tsung's body. Ending: The Deadly Alliance was successful in reviving the mummified remains of the Dragon King's undefeatable army. Shang Tsung, however, began to realize that his relavance in the partnership had evaporated once his talents for soul transplantation were no longer needed. The balance of power within the Deadly Alliance had seemingly been undone. Fearing betrayal, he secretly instructed Kano to steal Quan Chi's amulet in an attempt to gain control of the army. Since part of the soul-transfer spell included the command to obey 'He who possesses the amulet,' the army would obey only Shang Tsung, and not Quan Chi, once the amulet was in his possession. Amulet in hand, Shang Tsung revealed his betrayal to Quan Chi, and commanded the army to destroy the sorcerer. Shang Tsung would succeed where others had failed. He would conquer the realms. He would conquer Earth. =-=-=-=-=-=- Bo' Rai Cho: =-=-=-=-=-=- Stats: Status: Trainer Alignment: Good Weight: 375 lbs. Height: 5'11" Styles: Drunken Fist and Mi Zong Weapon: Jojutsu Difficulty: 3 Description: Bo' Rai Cho is an overweight fighter, with a "sack" of alcohol strapped to his back.

Alternate Costume: Bo' Rai Cho wears a vest with a thick strap going around his chest. He also has spiked arm braces on his wrists. On his back, is his "sack" of alcohol. He has his hair tied back in a ponytail, and his gut hangs out of the vest. He wears baggy red and gold pants, with thick brown boots. (Bo' Rai Cho's alternate costume is in koffin "PH" and costs 1,200 Onyx Koins). Story: During the years that Shang Tsung sponsored the Mortal Kombat tournaments on Earth, The Outworld master Bo' Rai Cho was secretly training warriors for competition. It was even speculated that it was he who brought the fighting style of Drunken Boxing to Earthrealm. After many years, he finally discovered the Shaolin monk Liu Kang and taught him the martial arts moves he needed to defeat Shang Tsung. Later, with the tournament securely in the hands of the Shaolin, his teachings were no longer needed and he returned to Outworld. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Drunken Fist Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Spinning Backfist: 1 >Cross Strike: Back - 1 >Serving Fist: Down - 1 >Drinking Punch: 2 >Twisting Flask: Down - 2 >Battle Punches: Up - 2 >Lazy Leg: 3 >Sweep Kick: Back - 3 >Drinking Wine: Down - 3 >Drunken Leg: 4 >Spinning Kick: Back - 4 >Monkey Kick: Down - 4 >Taunt: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Kreepy and Jugs: 3 - 2 >Twist of Lime: 1 - 1 - 1 >Crushing Grapes: 3 - 3 - 3 >Staggering Steps: 2 - 3 - 2 - 2 >Zero Tolerance: 3 - 3 - 2 - 2 >On the Rocks: 2 - 2 - 1 - 1 - 1 >Bottoms Up: 2 - 2 - 1 - 1 - CS - 2 - CS >Last Call: 2 - 2 - 1 - 1 - CS - 2 - Back - 4 >Drunken Fury: 2 - 2 - 1 - 1 - CS - 2 - Up - 4 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Mi Zong Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Hook Fist: 1 >Low Strike: Down - 1 >Staight Punch: 2 >Low Knife Hand: Down - 2 >Roundhouse: 3 >Sweep Kick: Back - 3 >Tripping Sweep: Down - 3 >Side Kick: 4 >Step Kick: Down - 4 >Lift Kick: Back - 4 >Smashing Kick: Up - 4 >Shove: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Critical Strike: 2 - 2 - CS >Lost Track: 2 - 2 - Up - 4 >Iron Broom: 2 - 2 - Back - 4 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Jojutsu Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Overhead Strike: 1 >Strong Overhead Strike: Back - 1 >Reverse Low Strike: Down - 1 >Two-Handed Thrust: 2 >Vertical Smash: Back - 2 >Leg Sweep: Doon - 2 >Homerun Swing: 3 >2-Hit Strike: Toward - 3 >Low Foot Poke: Down - 3 >Straight Thrust: Up - 3 >Mid Reverse Strike: 4 >Leg Poke: Back - 4 >High Reverse Strike: Down - 4 >Sidestep Swing: SM Kombo Chains: >Homerun: 2 - 3 >Dancing Stick: 2 - 4 - 1 >Splitting Bamboo: 2 - 4 - Back - 1 >Rolling Wind: 2 - 4 - 4 - Up - 3 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= > Puke Puddle: Back - Toward - 2 > Flip Flop: Down - Back - 1 > Ground Stomp: Toward - Back - 3 > Belly Bash: Toward - Toward - 4 Fatality: Back - Back - Back - Down - 4 Description: Bo' Rai Cho takes three sumo steps backward from his defeated enemy. He then proceeds to run at his opponent, and jump into the air. He belly flops onto his opponent twice, crushing their body, and bounces back to his feet. Both of his opponent's arms and legs become dismembered, and the opponent is left lying in a puddle of their own blood and "bloody popcorn." Ending: Bo' Rai Cho looked gruff, but beamed inwardly. With their victory over the Deadly Alliance complete, he and Kung Lao had liberated Outworld from its greatest threat. Despite the years that had past since training his last student, his skills had proved useful once more. He was elated, but it would be inappropriate to express such emotions in front of his newest apprentice. Kung Lao invited his master to return to Earthrealm to teach more warriors at the Wu Shi Academy. The success of his apprentice gave him renewed confidence in his training skills and for the first time, a clear purpose in life. Bo' Rai Cho offered only token resistance. He accepted the offer because the defenders of Earthrealm could certainly use his help, but more importantly because Earthrealm's rice wine put Outworld's liquor to shame. =-=-=-=-= Quan Chi: =-=-=-=-= Stats: Status: Sorcerer Alignment: Evil Weight: 210 lbs. Height: 6'7" Styles: Tang Soo Do and Escrima Weapon: Broadswords Difficulty: 4 Description: Quan Chi looks very much like he did in Mortal Kombat 4/Gold. He now has many tatoos on the top of his head. He has a strap going across his chest, and he wears the Amulet on his belt, like a belt buckle. He has thick boots, and a piece of cloth flowing in front and behind him. Alternate Costume: Quan Chi's alternate costume is a replice of the one he wore in Mortal Kombat 4. It is dark blue, with spikes running down the shoulders of it. His pants are also a dark blue/black. Instead of wearing the amulet like a belt buckle, Chi wears it in the middle of his chest. His boots are the same as his regular costume. (Quan Chi's alternate costume is in koffin "AA" and costs 1,556 Gold Koins). Story: Stranded in the Netherealm, Quan Chi was persistently tormented by the ninja spectre Scorpion. But with assistance from Moloch and Drahmin, Quan Chi discovered the truth about the amulet he had stolen from the fallen Elder God Shinnok. An ancient Rune Stone bearing the likeness of his amulet revealed new information that would enable Quan Chi to traverse the realms through a network of ancient gateways. Narrowly evading Scorpion's wrath, he escaped the Netherealm through one of these gateways and emerged in an ancient tomb in Outworld. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Tang Soo Do Move List: =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-= >Open Palm: 1 >Knee Chop: Down - 1 >Downward Elbow: Back - 1 >Forward Open Palm: 2 >Low Spearhead: Down - 2 >Front Ball Kick: 3 >Low Parallel Punch: Down - 3 >Inside Crescent Kick: Toward - 3 >Spinning Sidekick: Back - 3 >Sweeping Knife Hook: 4 >Low Foot Strike: Down - 4 >One Knuckle Fist Punch: Back - 4 >Reversal: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Face Breaker: 2 - 2 >Path Maker: 3 - 3 >Nightfall: Back - 1 - 4 >Rushing Palm: 1 - 1 - 1 >Running Stream: 2 - 3 - 4 >Walking Dead: Back - 1 - 3 - 3 >Strong Wind: 1 - 1 - 2 - 2 >Internal Power: 1 - 1 - 3 - 3 >Green Mountain: 1 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 >Pain Killer: 1 - 1 - 2 - 3 - CS - 4 - CS =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-= Escrima Move List: =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-= >Pinasaka: 1 >Pintok: Down - 1 >Lightning Strike: Back - 1 >Backhand Strike: 2 >Planchada: Down - 2 >Chest Strike: 3 >Piercing Elbow: Down - 3 >Deadly Palm: Back - 3 >Rising Knee Strike: 4 >Straight Fist: Toward - 4 >Cutting Elbow: Down - 4 >Neijin: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Double Pinasaka: 1 - 1 >Hit and Run: 3 - 1 - 1 >Rushing Knee: 4 - 4 - CS >Slitting Hand: 3 - 1 - Toward - 4 >Ice Pick: 2 - 4 - 4 - CS >De Cadena: 3 - 1 - Back - 1 =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-= Broadswords Move List: =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-= >Piercing Thrust: 1 >Double Edged Blow: Down - 1 >Decieving Strike: 2 >Dual Blade Swing: Back - 2 >Winged Strike: Down - 2 >2-Hit Strike: 3 >Half Moon Slice: Down - 3 >Dual Side Slash: 4 >Circular Slash: Down - 4 >Strong Slice: SM >Doom Blade: 3 - 4 =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=- Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=- > Skull Fireball: Down - Back - 1 > Rising Star: Back - Down - 4 Fatality: Back - Back - Toward - Back - 3 Description: Quan Chi pounces onto his opponent's shoulders. Using his legs as leverage, he proceeds to pull up on his opponent's neck. When the neck is extended about 5 feet in the air, Quan Chi hops off their shoulders. The opponent stumbles around for a bit with the elongated neck, falling face-first to the ground seconds later. Ending: The Deadly Alliance was successful in reviving the mummified remains of the Dragon King's undefeatable army. It would appear that nothing could stand in the way of Shang Tsung and Quan Chi as they began their domination of the realms. For Shang Tsung however, Quan Chi had no further need for the partnership. Once Shang Tsung had finally revived the last of the mummified warriors, Quan Chi closed the portal to the heavens, and effectively shut off Shang Tsung's endless supply of souls. Quan Chi then instructed Kano to assassinate Shang Tsung in a surprise weapon attack. With their captor cut wide open, the thousands of souls Shang Tsung had consumed in the past, spewed forth and swirled around the room. Quan Chi came to the realization that if Kano could so easily turn on Shang Tsung, he could easily turn on Quan Chi himself. Quan Chi used his sorcerey to drain the life from Kano and left his body where it fell. Immediately, one of the lingering souls shot into Kano's body. To Quan Chi's surprise the man standing before him was no longer the Black Dragon thug known as Kano. Kano's body now contained the soul of the Shaolin Monk know as Liu Kang. =-=-=-= Li Mei: =-=-=-= Stats: Status: Student Alignment: Good Weight: 120 lbs. Height: 5'8: Styles: Baji Quan and Lui He Ba Fa Weapon: Sais Difficulty: 3 Description: Li Mei has a very open pink and purple shirt. Along with matching silky pants, with oriental designs flowing down the sides, with a very thin silky belt. She wears sandals and is very quick. Alternate Costume: Li Mei is very scantily clad wearing a reddish/pink sports bra, that zips up the middle. She has a chain that hangs on her chest. She wears see-thru stocking, and high, thick, dark boots. Around the bottom of her outfit, hang dark tassles. (Li Mei's alternate costume is in koffin "KX" and costs 1,406 Sapphire Koins). Story: The Deadly Alliance commanded Kano and his troops to force a small population of people to construct a palace fortress. One of those enslaved was Li Mei, who rebelled against the invaders and attacked Kano himself. Recognizing the warrior spirit she possessed, the sorcerer Quan Chi offered to free her people if she could win the Deadly Alliance Tournament. If she did not win, however, she would be forced to serve the Alliance and her people would remain slaves forever. Li Mei had no choice but to accept the offer. =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-= Baji Quan Move List: =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-= >Wing Arm: 1 >Low Scooping Arm: Down - 1 >Upward Palm Strike: Toward - 1 >Thrusting Fingers: 2 >Scooping Arm: Down - 2 >Circling Hand Strike: Back - 2 >Scraping Kick: 3 >Low Kick: Down - 3 >Lifting Kick: 4 >Rising Elbow: Down - 4 >Nailing Kick: Back - 4 >Taunt: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Setting Sun: 4 - 4 - 4 >All Natural: 4 - 4 - 4 CS - 4 >Rising Sun: 4 - 4 - CS - Back - 1 >Linked Strength: 4 - 4 - CS- Back - 1 - CS =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=- Lui He Ba Fa Move List: =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=- >Sideward Palm: 1 >Hammer Palm: Back - 1 >Halting Palm: Down - 1 >Heel Palm Strike: Up - 1 >Open Fist Strike: 2 >Low Jab Fist: Down - 2 >Back Kick: 3 >Sweeping Kick: Back - 3 >Back Sweep: Down - 3 >Spinning Elbow: 4 >Lifting Knee: Back - 4 >Low Sideward Palm: Down - 4 >Shove: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Lost Rose: 2 - 4 >Pink Dragon: 3 - 3 >Extreme Fists: 1 - 1 - 1 >Unleashed: 2 - Back - 1 >Explosive Strength: 1 - 1 - Back - 4 >Rejuvenation: 1 - 1 - 2 - 4 >Coiled Dragon: 1 - 1 - 3 - 3 >Golden Path: 1 - 1 - 2 - Back - 1 >Flower Blossom: 1 - 1 - 2 - Back - 1 - CS =-=-=-=-=--=-= Sai Move List: =-=-=-=-=--=-= >Forward Thrust: 1 >Overhead Smash: Back - 1 >Low Swipe: Down - 1 >Gut Stab: 2 >Rising Sai: Up - 2 >Low Thrust: Down - 2 >Foot Spike: 3 >Knee Poke: Down - 3 >Side Swipe: 4 >Sweeping Sai: Back - 4 >Hooking Stab: Down - 4 >Impale: SM =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=- Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=- > Flying Fists: Toward - Toward - 2 > Kartwheel: Down - Back - 4 > Klock Kick: Toward - Down - 3 > Sparkler: Down - Back - 1 Fatality: Toward - Toward - Down - Toward - 4 Description: Li Mei readies herself for the Fatality, by doing a little warm up. She then proceeds to kick her opponent in the chest with her left foot. Her foot goes all the way through the opponent's body. She extracts her left leg, as blood pools around her victim. She then sizes up her fallen opponent, as she then superkicks her opponent's head off with her right foot. The decapitated corpse falls to its knees, and then face- first to the ground, with blood shooting from the neck, and pooling. Ending: Li Mei had been promised that her people would be freed from enslavement if she could win the tournament held by the Deadly Alliance. Now that she had emerged victorious, the true purpose behind the tournament was finally revealed to her. Her soul would be the last one Shang Tsung needed to completely revive the Dragon King's lost army. Her people would never be freed and Li mei herself would remain trapped inside the mummified remains of a dead soldier... cursed to serve the Deadly Alliance... forever. =-=-=-=-= Scorpion: =-=-=-=-= Stats: Status: Ninja Spectre Alignment: Neutral Weight: 210 lbs. Height: 6'2" Styles: Hapkido and Pi Gua Weapon: Ninja Sword Difficulty: 1 Description: Scorpion sports a much different look than past games. He now resembles more of a samurai. His ninja mask is the same, only covering his nose and mouth. He wears a gold karate gi, with a skull belt buckle around the waist. He has gold and black thigh and shin guards along with two sword holsters strapped to his back. His spear dangles "harmlessly" at his side. Alternate Costume: Scorpion's alternate costume looks much like his regular costume, except for a few differences. He wears no shirt under his gi, and has two chains crossing his chest. He also has his mask off, revealing his skull. His skull is on fire, and burns the entire match. He also wears bandages around his forearms. (Scorpion's alternate costume is in koffin "UH" and costs 1,660 Jade Koins). Story: The ninja spectre Scorpion had assumed for many years that Sub-Zero killed his family and clan, only to later discover that the true murderer was the sorcerer Quan Chi. After revealing his treachery, Quan Chi then attempted to send Scorpion to the 5th plane of the Netherrealm. Thinking quickly, Scorpion grappled with the sorcerer at the last moment and they were both transported to that forbidden realm. This turn of events boded well for Scorpion as his strength increased the longer he reamained there. Quan Chi's powers, however, proved to be useless against him. =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-= Hapkido Move List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-= >Back Hand Strike: 1 >Face Strike: Back - 1 >Twisting Fist: Down - 1 >Neck Chop: 2 >Open Palm: Down - 2 >Axe Kick: 3 >Knee Knockdown: Toward - 3 >Hop Sweep: Back - 3 >Back Sweep: Down - 3 >Snap Kick: 4 >Front Sweep: Down - 4 >Backside Kick: Back - 4 >Front Thrust Kick: Up - 4 >Taunt: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Sinking Leaf: Toward - 3 - Back - 3 >Flowing Water: 2 - 2 - 1 >Inner Power: 2 - 2 - 4 >Spectre Blast: 3 - Back - 1 >Lethal Legs: 4 - Back - 4 >Liftoff: 4 - Up - 4 >Burning Soul: 2 - 3 - Up - 4 >Doombringer: 2 - 3 - Back - 1 >Painless: 2 - 2 - CS - 2 - 3 >Undead Rush: 2 - 2 - CS - 2 - 1 >Knightmare: 2 - 2 - CS - 2 - CS - 4 >Darkness: 2 - 2 - CS - 2 - CS - 3 >Infernal: 2 - 2 - CS - 2 - CS - 1 - 1 - 3 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Pi Gua Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Ridge Hand: 1 >Knife Hand Chop: Back - 1 >Low Knife Hand Chop: Down - 1 >Spear Hand Strike: 2 >Wing Chop: Toward - 2 >Spear Hand Sweep: Back - 2 >Chest Strike: Down - 2 >Stepping Heel Kick: 3 >Open Palm Strike: Down - 3 >Low Heel Kick: 4 >Low Knife Hand Strike: Down -4 >Double Knife Hand Chop: Back - 4 >Shove: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Stone Breaker: Back - 1 - 3 >Falling Tree: 2 - 2 - 3 >Rushing Ridge Hand: 2 - 2 - 1 >Nuisance: 2 - 2 - CS - 4 >Deranged: 2 - 2 - CS - 3 >Hell Bound: 2 - 2 - CS - 1 - 1 - 3 =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-==-=- Ninja Sword Move List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-==-=- >Spinning Slash: 1 >Upward Slash: Down - 1 >Reverse Stab: 2 >Edge Slash: Down - 2 >Rising Slash: 3 >Charging Slash: Toward - 3 >Piercing Blade: Down - 3 >Crescent Blade Strike: 4 >Sweeping Blade: Down - 4 >Sidestep Swing: SM Kombo Chains: >Turning Dragon: 1 - 2 >Rising Dragon: 1 - 3 >Demon Slice: 4 - 3 >Moon Strike: 4 - 4 >Edge of Pain: 4 - 1 - 1 - 3 =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-= Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-= > Spear: Back - Toward - 1 > Summon Hellfire: Down - Back - 2 > Backflip Kick: Toward - Back - 3 Fatality: Back - Back - Down - Back - 4 Description: Scorpion hurls his spear at his opponent's head. The spear lodges itself through their skull. Scorpion proceeds to tug on the spear three times as the spear remains through his opponent's head. He gets fed up with this, and yanks on the rope with all his might. The spear rips the opponent's head off, sending it flying toward Scorpion. The opponent falls face first to the ground, with blood spilling out of their neck. Ending: The hunt for Quan Chi had led Scorpion to the palace of Shang Tsung. Scorpion entered the palace through a hidden passage. As he made his way through the lower levels, he was discovered by the two Oni he had previously encountered while in the Netherealm. Shang Tsung had secretly allied with Moloch and Drahmin as a backup defense against Quan Chi. The two Oni had been hidden in an underground chamber and were periodically fed mortals to keep them satisfied. Scorpion fought well but was overpowered by Moloch and Drahmin. Although the could not consume the ninja spectre, they devised another means for eliminating their foe that would satisfy their cruel nature. The Oni brough Scorpion before the portal to The Heavens that Shang Tsung had tapped as a source of limitless souls. They hurled him into the Soulnado and his hellspawn body was ripped apart by the purity of that realm. =-=-=- Sonya: =-=-=- Stats: Status: Special Forces Operative Alignment: Good Weight: 140 lbs.

She has bullets strapped around her waist, and a belt buckle. Her black gloves have the fingers cut off as well. Alternate Costume: Sonya's alternate costume is a Special Forces outfit. It is light gray on the top and bottom. She wears a dark beret much like Jax's. Her gloves have the fingers cut off like before, and she wears very dark, high boots. (Sonya's alternate costume is in koffin "SH" and costs 1,834 Ruby Koins). Story: Agent Sonya Blade and her team had finished their mission of demolishing any known ancient inter-realm portals when she received word from Jax that the Agency's portal chamber had been destroyed. With no means for traversing the realms, Sonya realized that there were now two agents lost in Outworld. The first was the ninja cyborg Cyrax, whom the agency had lost contact with some time ago. And now Agent Kenshi, originally sent to find Cyrax, was lost as well. She would have to find a way to get to Outworld and bring them home. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Kenpo Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Knife-Hand Strike: 1 >Double Hammer Fist: Down - 1 >Spinning Elbow Strike: Back - 1 >Eye-Gouger: 2 >Knife-Hand Chop: Back - 2 >Low Punch: Down - 2 >Standing Uppercut: Up - 2 >Back Kick: 3 >Leg Sweep: Back - 3 >Low Heel Kick: Down - 3 >Rising Axe Kick: 4 >Shovel Kick: Back - 4 >Low Step Punch: Down - 4 >Neijin: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Conscious Mind: 3 - 3 >Cutting Edge: 1 - 3 - 3 >Big Guns: 1 - 1 - 4 >Warfare: 1 - 1 - CS - 4 - CS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Tae Kwon Do Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Side Kick: 1 >Hook Kick: Back - 1 >Double Hammer Fist: Down - 1 >Downward Axe Kick: 2 >Twin Fist Punch: Down - 2 >Spinning Heel Kick: 3 >Rolling Strike: Down - 3 >Ankle Smash: Back - 3 >2-Hit Axe Kick: 4 >Nitro Kicks: Back - 4 >Spinning Back Kick: Down - 4 >Reversal: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Clearness of Mind: 4 - 4 >Take Out: Back - 3 - 3 >Blitzkrieg: Back - 4 - CS >Peaceful World: 1 - 1 - Down - 3 >Special Forces: 4 - Back - 3 - 3 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Kali Stick Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Straight Snap Strike: 1 >Low Snap Strike: Down - 1 >Overhead Strike: Toward - 1 >Circular Strike: 2 >Low Scissors Swipe: Down - 2 >Low Swinging Strike: 3 >Spinning Strike: Back - 3 >Low Strike: Down - 3 >Wrist Snap Strike: 4 >Chin Jab: Down - 4 >Circular Power Strike: Back - 4 >Stick Smash: SM Kombo Chains: >Multi-Level Strikes: 2 - 4 - 3 >Show-Off 2 - 4 - Back - 3 >Furious Blows: 4 - 2 - 4 >Live Hand: 4 - 2 - Back - 3 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= > Kiss of Death: Down - Back - 1 > Fly Kick: Toward - Toward - 3 Fatality: Back - Toward - Toward - Down - 2 Description: Sonya blows a kiss to her opponent in the form of a pink mist; a heart floats out for effect. The opponent immediately falls to their hands and knees vomiting. They then start to choke and cough up blood. As the opponent is lying on the ground vomiting and coughing, Sonya leaps onto their back, causing their head to explode, leaving a huge pool of blood. The opponent's headless corpse lays there, with the red stuff gushing from the neck. Ending: After the destruction of the Deadly Alliance, Sonya searched for the missing Special Forces agent Kenshi. She finally discovered him badly beaten and near death apparently from hook- like wounds in his ribcage. She managed to return him to the rendezvous point where I transported them back to Earthrealm. Upon her return, Sonya was promoted to General and given her choice of command. She hand-picked a team to deal with new terrorist threats located on Earth. While in Outworld, Special Agent Kenshi had learned of a new threat to peace. The Red Dragon had awakened. =-=-=-= Kenshi: =-=-=-= Stats: Status: Rogue Swordsman Alignment: Unknown Weight: 185 lbs.

He has a strap across his chest with an Oriental symbol adorning it. He has red knee pads and high, think boots. The red bandanna covering Kenshi's eyes is his trademark. Alternate Costume: Kenshi sheds his "army" gear in favor of a traditional white karate gi. He no longers wears the red bandanna over his eyes. His karate gi is white, with many tears and gashes; he is wearing a black belt holding his pants up. He goes barefoot. (Kenshi's alternate costume is in koffin "YM" and costs 1,435 Platinum Koins). Story: Serving the cries of his captured ancestors, Kenshi made a vow to slay Shang Tsung in order to free them from his grasp. When he learned of Shang Tsung's escape to Outworld, Kenshi agreed to help the Special Forces search for the missing agent Cyrax as a means of gaining access to that realm, which allowed him to act as both rescue party and spy. Shortly after discovering the sorcerer's whereabouts, the Agency was destroyed and with it his only means for a return to Earth. Kenshi now finds himself facing the Deadly Alliance on his own. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Tai Chi Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Palm Strike: 1 >Rising Spade Hand: Back -1 >Pushing Hands: Toward - 1 >Dual Fist Strike: Down - 1 >Chopping Strike: 2 >Quick Uppercut: Back - 2 >Rising Uppercut: Down - 2 >Straight Kick: 3 >Low Lean Kick: Down - 3 >Spinning Roundhouse: 4 >Low Spin Kick: Down - 4 >Standing Sweep: Back - 4 >Taunt: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Empty & Full: 1 - 1 >Blind Justice: Back - 2 - 3 >Play By Ear: 2 - 2 - 2 - 3 >Dark Fists: 2 - 2 - 2 - 1 - 1 >Fading Light: 2 - 2 - 2 - Back - 1 >Nightfall: 2 - 2 - 2 - CS - 1 - 3 >Out of Sight: 2 - 2 - 2 - CS - 1 - CS >See No Evil: 2 - 2 - 2 - CS - 1 - Back - 3 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= San Shou Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Hook Punch: 1 >Long Range Fist: Back - 1 >Low Jab: Down - 1 >Face Strike: 2 >Knee Knocker: Toward - 2 >Rising Elbow: Down - 2 >Side Kick: 3 >Low Sweep: Down - 3 >Propelling Hook Kick: Back - 3 >Rising Toe Kick: Toward - 3 >Snapping Roundhouse: 4 >Spinning Roundhouse: Back - 4 >Shin Kick: Down - 4 >Neijin: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Don't Blink: 4 - 4 >Natural Way: 2 - 1 - 3 >Near Sight: 2 - 1 - CS >All Ears: 2 - 1 - Back - 3 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Katana Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Spinning Slash: 1 >Upward Slash: Down - 1 >Reverse Stab: 2 >Edge Slash: Down - 2 >Rising Slash: 3 >Charging Slash: Toward - 3 >Piercing Blade: Down - 3 >Crescent Blade Strike: 4 >Sweeping Blade: Down - 4 >Sidestep Swing: SM Kombo Chains: >Day Break: 1 - 2 >Rising Dragon: 1 - 3 >Blind Slice: 4 - 3 >Moon Strike: 4 - 4 >Edge of Pain: 4 - 1 - 1 - 3 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= > Telekinetic Slam: Back - Down - Back - 1 > Telekinetic Toss: Down - Back - 4 > Telekinetic Push: Toward - Toward - 2 Fatality: Toward - Back - Toward - Down - 3 Description: Kenshi puts his hands to his head in deep thought. The fallen opponent's eyes then proceed to pop out of their head, and roll toward the screen. The opponent's eyeless body then proceeds to contort in non-human ways in mid-air. Their arms bend up and backwards, as do their legs. When Kenshi is done using his telepathic powers on the defeated opponent, they fall to the ground shaped almost like a pretzel. Ending: Kenshi had finally caught up with Shang Tsung in Outworld. Years ago, Kenshi had been manipulated into releasing the souls of his warrior ancestors. Shang Tsung had consumed those souls and left Kenshi to die in the tomb. The ordeal left Kenshi blinded, but the sword of his ancestors led him out of the depths. Kenshi had finally caught up with Shang Tsung in Outworld. To redeem himself, Kenshi had vowed to free his ancestors from their captor. He cut Shang Tsung down with his ancestral sword and a blast of souls was instantly released. The spirits of the warrior kings reentered the sword as Kenshi held it above his head. His duty fulfilled, he could now return to Earthrealm. =-=-=-= Mavado: =-=-=-= Stats: Status: Red Dragon Alignment: Evil Weight: 175 lbs. Height: 5'9" Styles: Long Fist and Wing Chun Weapon: Hookswords Difficulty: 5 Description: Mavado wears a long black trenchcoat with silver shoulderpads. On the back of his trenchcoat is the Red Dragon symbol. He wears long black pants with spiked metal boots. Under his trenchcoat are grappling hooks, used for planting in the ground and striking his opponent. Alternate Costume: Mavado's alternate costume resembles that of a knight in shining armor. He has a red "mouth mask," and armored plating on his chest that looks like chain mail. His pants are the same way. His boots are metallic like his regular costume. (Mavado's alternate costume is in koffin "RD" and costs 1,455 Jade Koins). Story: The Red Dragon had existed for centuries as a secretive criminal organization. Members such as Mavado were highly skilled and disciplined warriors. But in the last century, many of the more reckless members became dissatisfied with the restraints the code of the Red Dragon placed on them and broke away to form their own gang. Since then, it has been the Red Dragon's number one priority to completely eradicate the infidels known collectively as the Black Dragon. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Long Fist Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Flat Punch: 1 >Knee Strike: Back - 1 >Ducking Claw: Down - 1 >Long Straight Fist: 2 >Crane Strike: Back - 2 >Low Strike: Down - 2 >Heel Kick: 3 >Ducking Fist: Down - 3 >Cutkick: 4 >Floor Kick: Down - 4 >Spinning Crane: Back - 4 >Shove: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Longfist Blast: 1 - 1 - 2 >Forklift: 1 - 1 - Back - 2 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Wing Chun Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Outside Whip Punch: 1 >Low Punch: Down - 1 >Hammerfist: 2 >Low Whip Jab: Down - 2 >Sidekick: 3 >Shin Kick: Down - 3 >Front Heel Kick: 4 >Sweep Kick: Down - 4 >Dragon Tongue: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Mavado Surprise: 4 - 3 >Lin Wan Kuen: 1 - 1 - 1 >Determination: 2 - 4 - 3 >Storm Kicks: 4 - 4 - 3 >Rolling Hands: 1 - 2 - 4 - 3 >Red Dragon: 2 - 4 - 4 - 3 >Empty Shadow: 1 - 1 - Up - 1 >Control of Power: 1 - 2 - 4 - 4 - 3 >Chainsaw: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 4 - 2 >Sacred Band: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 4 - Back - 3 >Downfall: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 4 - Back - 2 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Hooksword Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Chest Strike: 1 >Low Reverse Blow: Down - 1 >Downward Hook Strike: 2 >Twin Overhead Strike: Back - 2 >One Hook Sweep: Down - 2 >Low High 2-Hit: 3 >Twin Overhead Slam: Back - 3 >Scissors Swipe: Down - 3 >Stepping Chest Strike: 4 >Upward Cross Strike: Down - 4 >Dual Hook Strike: Toward - 4 >Sidestep Swing: SM Kombo Chains: >Kabal's Torment: 4 - 4 - 2 >Strength and Balance: 4 - 4 - Back - 3 >Hook N Bash: 4 - 4 - Back - 2 >Blazing Fury: 2 - 4 - 4 - 2 >Brutal Revenge: 2 - 4 - 4 - Back - 3 >Kabal's Return: 2 - 4 - 4 - Back - 2 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= > Grapple Hook Strike: Toward - Toward - 4 > Change Sides Hook: Down - Up - 2 Fatality: Back - Back - Up - Up - 1 Description: Mavado plants both of his grappling hooks into the ground on opposite sides of his defeated opponent. He then proceeds to walk backwards, pulling the rope as taut as possible. He then raises his left boot, as spikes protrude out the bottom. He then "jumps" into the air with his legs extended, letting the grappling hooks propel him forward and into his opponent. He impales them in the chest, and steps out of their body with organs attached to his boots, while the opponent lays in a pool of blood. Ending: For many years Mavado's Red Dragon clan had been secretly engineering the destruction of their rivals, the Black Dragon. Through careful manipulation, Mavado had used the Special Forces to unwittingly aid them in this task. In return for eliminating Kenshi for the Deadly Alliance, Mavado was finally granted his battle with the last known member of the Black Dragon: Kano. After a long, brutal fight, Mavado emerged victorious and all traces of the Black Dragon had been erased. Impressed with the fighting skill and discipline of Mavado as well as other members of his clan, Quan Chi realized the potential the Red Dragon held for staging the eventual invasion of Earthrealm. In return for their continued assistance, he offered crucial information about a new threat to Mavado's Red Dragon clan... the Lin Kuei. =-=-=-=-=-=- Johnny Cage: =-=-=-=-=-=- Stats: Status: Movie Star Alignment: Good Weight: 190 lbs. Height: 6'0" Styles: Karate and Jeet Kune Do Weapon: Nunchakus Difficulty: 3 Description: Johnny Cage once again wears no shirt, but he does have a new tatoo that covers his entire back. He wears black sweat pants that stop just above his knees. "Cage" is printed on the side. He has blue and gold arm and wrist bands, along with a blue and gold belt. He goes barefoot, and also sports his sunglasses the entire match. Alternate Costume: Johnny Cage is wearing his tuxedo costume from Mortal Kombat 4. It is black, with a white undershirt. He wears black dress shoes, and his trademark, dark sunglasses. (Johnny Cage's alternate costume is in koffin "DK" and costs 1,460 Ruby Koins). Story: Johnny Cage had been fed up with the lame writing on his current movie "Mortal Kombat: The Death of Johnny Cage," in which his character repeatedly died and was resurrected. To him, his real-life adventures were much more sensational-he kicked butt! But his studio felt that the hero needed to take a fall for dramatic purposes, Johnny Cage reluctantly agreed to continue with the project until the Thunder God Raiden called him away to a new adventure in Outworld. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Karate Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Lunge Punch: 1 >Low Hook Punch: Down - 1 >Side Elbow Punch: Back - 1 >Knife Hand Chop: 2 >Knife Hammer Strike: Toward - 2 >Low Palm Strike: Down - 2 >Front Thrust Kick: 3 >Low Jabbing Punch: Down - 3 >Cutting Kick: Up - 3 >Side Thrust Kick: 4 >Low Kick: Down - 4 >Shin Thrust: Back - 4 >Flip Kick: Up - 4 >Double Flip Kick: Up - 4 - Up - 4 >Shove: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Smash TV: 2 - 4 >Bone Breaker: 3 - 4 >Big Blast: 1 - 1 - 4 >Out Take: 1 - 1 - CS >The Foot Sword: 3 - 3 - 3 >Cutting Hands: 2 - 3 - 4 >Closing Credits: 1 - 1 - Back - 1 >Chopping Hands: 1 - 2 - Toward - 2 >Cameo: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 >Prequel: 2 - 3 - 3 - 3 >Box Office Smash: 1 - 2 - 3 - 3 - 3 >Theatrical Release: 1 - 1 - Up 4 >Directors Cut: 1 - 1 - Up - 4 - Up - 4 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Jeet Kune Do Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Leading Straight Punch: 1 >Hook Fist: Down - 1 >Knuckle Fist: Back - 1 >Duck 'n' Jab: 2 >Low Knuckle Fist: Down - 2 >Stepping Snap Kick: 3 >Low Punch: Down - 3 >Side Kick to Knee: Back - 3 >Side Kick to Face: 4 >Sweeping Kick: Back - 4 >Low Kick: Down - 4 >High Hooking Kick: Up - 4 >Taunt: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Straight Blast: 1 - 1 >Spotlight: 2 - 2 - 4 >Runner Up: 2 - 2 - 3 - 3 - CS >Sticky Legs: 2 - 2 - 3 - 3 - 4 >Outer Gate: 2 - 2 - 3 - 3 - Back - 4 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Nunchaku Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Reverse Shoulder Swing: 1 >Overhand Strike: Back - 1 >Bottom Swing: Down - 1 >Stepping Cross Swing: 2 >Cross Back Strike: Back - 2 >Low Knee Strike: Down - 2 >Underhand Strike: 3 >Low Circular Swing: Back - 3 >Double Thrust Strike: Toward - 3 >Rising Swing: Down - 3 >Side Kick: 4 >Roundhouse Kick: Back - 4 >Low Foot Strike: Down - 4 >Side Step Swing:SM Kombo Chains: >Gentle Spirit: 1 - 1 - 3 - 3 >Flowing Strikes: 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 >Living Legend: 1 - 1 - 2 - Back - 2 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= > Forceball: Down - Back - 1 > Shadow Kick: Back - Toward - 4 > Johnny Uppercut: Back - SM Fatality: Back - Toward - Toward - Down - 2 Description: Johnny Cage strikes his defeated opponent in the stomach, causing them to fall to their knees. He then raises his right arm high in the air, watching it as he brings it back. He proceeds to punch his opponent square in the head, causing blood and brain matter to be flung everywhere, all the while his opponent screaming with half a skull. He extracts his hand from his opponent's head, raising his arm trumphantly as he grasps their brain, dripping with bucketloads of blood. Ending: Upset by the way his adventures had been portrayed in the past, Johnny Cage found a loophole in his contract and left MCM studios during the production of "Mortal Kombat: The Death of Johnny Cage." He then used his own money to fund the production of his next movie, which is rumored to be the true story of his latest adventures in Outworld. "Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance" broke all records in its first weekend in theaters, and made Johnny Cage extremely wealthy. The movie told the true story of how Johnny Cage single handedly saved the world from the threat of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung's deadly alliance. =-=-=-=-= Sub-Zero: =-=-=-=-= Stats: Status: Grandmaster Alignment: Good Weight: 210 lbs. Height: 6'2" Styles: Shotokan and Dragon Weapon: Kori Blade Difficulty: 5 Description: Sub-Zero looks to have aged since the past tournament. He looks more menacing than ever though. He sports his classic Mortal Kombat 3 outfit with the blue "suspenders" down the sides of his upper torso. He has black pants with blue knee pads. His hands and hair are frozen with mist radiating off of them throughout the match. Alternate Costume: Sub-Zero's alternate costume is pretty much the same as it was in Mortal Kombat II. It is all blue and black. His "shirt" has no sleeves, and his forearms are frozen. His pants are black with a blue flap in front of him. His mask his back, which is also blue and black. He looks VERY cool. (Sub-Zero's alternate costume is in koffin "YA" and costs 1,999 Sapphire Koins). Story: Raiden appeared before Sub-Zero and asked for his aid in defeating the Deadly Alliance in Outworld. Fighting alongside Raiden would prove to the world that the Lin Kuei had changed for the better, Sub-Zero accepted the challenge and brought with him one of his newest recruits. It was highly unusual for the Grand Master to embark on such a dangerous mission, but Sub-Zero felt it was necessary to earn the respect of his fellow Lin Kuei. =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=- Shotokan Move List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=- >Spear Hand Strike: 1 >Forward Elbow Strike: Back - 1 >Lower Knee Strike: Down - 1 >Sword Hand Strike: 2 >Lower Dual Punch: Down - 2 >Mountain Punch: Back - 2 >Rising Thrust Kick: 3 >Side Snap Kick: Toward - 3 >Low Sweep Kick: Down - 3 >Thrust Kick: 4 >Low Double Side Strike: Down - 4 >Low Shin Kick: Back - 4 >Icy Retreat: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >2-Hit Trick: 3 >King's Crown: 3 - Toward - 3 >Peaceful Mind: 3 - Back - 2 >Icy Pain: 1 - 2 - 4 >Cloud Hands: 1 - 2 - Back - 1 >Iron Horse: 1 - 2 - Back - 2 >Rock Solid: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 3 >Lin Kuei Storm: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 2 - 3 >Zero Below: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 2 - 4 >Frozen Frenzy: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - Back - 1 >Frosty: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 2 - CS >Thin Ice: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 2 - Back - 2 >Unthawed: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 2 - Up - 4 =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=- Dragon Move List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=- >Back Knuckle Strike: 1 >Ducking Dual Claws: Down - 1 >Upper Lunge Punch: Back - 1 >Sun Fist: 2 >Dragon Attack: Back - 2 >Uppercut: Down - 2 >Roundhouse Kick: 3 >Low Claw Strike: Down - 3 >Front Stomp Kick: 4 >Wheel Turning Kick: Up - 4 >Mid Claw Strike: Down - 4 >Neijin: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Tiger in Cave: 4 - Back - 2 >Yielding Fire: 2 - 3 >Ice Pop: 1 - 1 - 2 >Dragon Dance: 1 - Back - 1 >Silent Dragon: 1 - 2 - 3 >Dragon Plays with 7 Stars: 1 - 2 - 4 >Ice Maker: 1 - 2 - CS >3-Hit Claws: 1 - 2 - Back - 2 >Twist of the Tiger: 1 - 2 - Up - 4 =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=- Kori Blade Move List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=- >Overhead Swing: 1 >Ducking Moon: Down - 1 >Spinning Slash: Back - 1 >Overhead Smash: Up - 1 >Blade Lunge: 2 >Straight Stab: Down - 2 >Close Swipe: Back - 2 >Stomp Kick: 3 >Downwards Stab: Down - 3 >Back Kick: 4 >Sweep Kick: Back - 4 >Twisting Blade: Down - 4 >Impale: SM >Cut Up: 4 - 4 >Bitter Blade: 1 - Back - 1 =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=- Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=- > Freeze: Down - Toward - 1 > Ice Shaker: Back - Down - 2 > Cold Shoulder: Back - Toward - 4 Fatality: Back - Toward - Toward - Down - 3 Description: Sub-Zero walks behind his fallen opponent as they stand there dazed. He then thrusts his right arm into their back. He pulls once with no results. He pulls again as you hear some snapping. He pulls one more time extracting his opponent's entire skeleton. The opponent's body slumps there lifelessly. He drops their skeleton to the ground in relative satisfaction. Ending: After defeating the Deadly Alliance, Sub-Zero returned to the new temple of the Lin Kuei with the severely injured ninja Frost. A short time later, I visited the temple to commend him for his victory in Outworld and to express my gratitude for all his assistance. With Sub-Zero now the Grand Master of the Lin Kuei, Earthrealm will be well protected. =-=-= Kano: =-=-= Stats: Status: Mercenary Alignment: Evil Weight: 200 lbs. Height: 5'10" Styles: Xing Yi and Aikido Weapon: Butterfly Difficulty: 3 Description: Kano wears a black vest with no undershirt. His eye is still "encased" in the metal plate with the red radiating off it. He has brown pants and thick boots. On the ankle of his pants is a bowie knife. His golves are black and he is very muscular. He wears a chain around his neck with what appears to be a lock of hair snapped to it. Alternate Costume: Kano's alternate costume is his costume from the original Mortal Kombat. It resembles his costume in Deadly Alliance but is white. He has the red and black strap going across his chest also. He has white pants, and light brown boots. (Kano's alternate costume is in koffin "BD" and costs 1,520 Sapphire Koins). Story: Kano had been defeated in a battle with Special Forces agent Sonya Blade during Shao Kahn's invasion of Earthrealm. Shao Kahn incarcerated Kano for this failure, but later hastily promoted him to General when he prevented the Emperor's assassination at the hands of the Shokan warrior known as Sheeva. With the merging of Earthrealm and Outworld not yet complete, Shao Kahn ordered Kano to portal back to the last remnants of Outworld to gater more troops for the final push against the Earthrealm opposition. =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-= Xing Yi Move List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-= >Straight Punch: 1 >Power Fist: Back - 1 >Low Palm Strike: Down - 1 >Axe Strike: 2 >Eagle Strike: Down - 2 >Tiger Strike: Toward - 2 >Front Snap Kick: 3 >Low Elbow Strike: Down - 3 >Rising Knee: 4 >Hopping Back Kick: Back - 4 >Toe Strike: Dowm - 4 >Lifting High Kick: Up - 4 >Reversal: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Sure Fire: 4 - 2 >Casualty: 4 - 3 >Seek and Destroy: 1 - 1 - 4 - 3 >Dead Zone: 1 - 1 - Up - 4 >Backlash: 1 - 1 - Back - 4 >Minimum Damage: 1 - 1 - 2 >Maximum Damage: 1 - 1 - 2 - CS >Honor and Disgrace: 2 - Back - 1 >Three Powers: 1 - 1 - 2 - Back - 1 >Assault and Battery: 1 - 1 - 4 - 2 =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=- Aikido Move List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=- >Heaven and Earth Throw: 1 >Low Frontal Punch: Down - 1 >Breath-Power Throw: 2 >Low Toe Kick: Down - 2 >Side Kick: 3 >Crescent Kick: Back - 3 >Low Side Kick: Down - 3 >Frontal Kick: 4 >Knee Kick: Back - 4 >Low Step Kick: Down - 4 >Nejin: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >2-Hit Doom: 4 - Back - 3 >Underdog: 4 - 4 - 3 >Total Karnage: 4 - 4 - Back - 3 >Destroyer: 4 - 3 - CS - Back - 2 >Killing Time: 4 - 4 - 3 - CS - Back - 2 =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Butterfly Sword Move List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Jut Do: 1 >Piercing Low Strike: Down - 1 >Downward Circling Sword: Back - 1 >Twisting Sword: 2 >Rising Strike: Down - 2 >Upward Circling Sword: Back - 2 >Biu Do: 3 >Push Strike: Toward - 3 > Cutting Sword: Down - 3 >Pek Do: 4 >Rising Chop: Down - 4 Kombo Chains: >Cutthroat: 1 - Toward - 3 >Ear to Ear: Back - 1 - Back - 2 >Lost Dragon: 4 - Toward - 3 =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=- Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=- > Cannonball: Back - Toward - 1 > Eye Laser: Toward - Toward - 2 Fatality: Toward - Up - Up - Down - 1 Description: Kano plunges his left hand into his opponent's chest/stomach. He extracts what looks like the opponent's heart. He then plunges his right hand deep into his opponent's chest, extracting what looks like a liver or kidney. He then plunges both of his hands/arms into his opponent's chest and rips out what looks like their stomach. With a look of disgust on his face, Kano violently kicks the bleeding opponent away from him. Ending: Kano and Sonya had fought before. Although Kano was humiliated by his defeat at her hands so many years ago, this time the outcome would be different... Kano had stolen Quan Chi's amulet at the request of Shang Tsung. With the amulet in his possession, Kano came to the realization that he was now in total control of the revived undefeatable army. Rather than hand the amulet and the army over to Shang Tsung, Kano kept them for himself, and used the army to ambush Sonya, ending their long rivalry once and for all. =-=-=-=-= Kung Lao: =-=-=-=-= Stats: Status: Shaolin Monk Alignment: Good Weight: 175 lbs.

(Kung Lao's alternate costume is in koffin "YJ" and costs 1,208 Ruby Koins). Story: Kung Lao was the first to find the body of his friend and fellow Shaolin Monk Liu Kang. He later discovered that it was in fact Shang Tsung who had dealt the fatal blow. Enraged, Kung Lao abandoned his Shaolin beliefs and vowed revenge against the sorcerer. He knew that his fighting skill would not be sufficient to best Shang Tsung. He would need training from the same Outworld master who had taught Liu Kang the one special attack he needed to win the Mortal Kombat tournament so many years ago. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Praying Mantis Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Drilling Punch: 1 >Low Thrusting Palm: Down - 1 >Power Forcing Fist: 2 >Double Mantis Strike: Back - 2 >Sweeping Punch: Down - 2 >Leg Sprouting Kick: 3 >Ward Off Punch: Down - 3 >Toppling Kick: Back - 3 >Chest Piercing Kick: 4 >Seven Star Hit: Down - 4 >Leg Squatting Kick: Back - 4 >Single Leg Soaring Kick: Up - 4 >Taunt: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Lotus Petals: 3 - 3 >18 Elders: 1 - 1 - 1 >Natural Death: 1 - 1 - 2 - 4 >Cave Mantis: 1 - 1 - 3 - 3 >Five Blessings: 1 - 1 - 2 - Back - 2 >Deadly Insect: 1 - 1 - 1 CS - 4 - 3 >White Lotus: 1 - 1 - 1 - CS - 2 - 4 - 3 >Peaceful Life: 1 - 1 - 1 - CS - 4 - 4 - 3 >Teachers Pet: 1 - 1 - 1 CS - 4 - 4 - CS >Fallen Hero: 1 - 1 - 1 - CS - 4 - 4 - Toward - 2 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Shaolin Fist Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Buddha Fist: 1 >Low Axe Palm: Down - 1 >Attack the Heart: Back - 1 >Curved Hook Punch: 2 >Palm Heel Strike: Down - 2 >Backfist Strike: Back - 2 >Fore Knuckle Fist: Toward - 2 >Roundhouse Strike: 3 >Low Back Fist: Down - 3 >Front Kick: 4 >Low Knuckle Punch: Down - 4 >Sweeping Blade Kick: Back - 4 >Neijin: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Double Kicks: 4 - 3 >Shaolin Faith: 4 - Toward - 2 >Shout of Spirit: 1 - 4 - 3 >Rushing Buddha: 2 - 4 - 3 >Enlightenment: 1 - 4 - 4 - 3 >Shaolin Beat Down: 1 - 2 - 4 - 3 >Pins and Needles: 1 - 4 - 4 - CS >Hurricane: 1 - 4 - 4 - Toward - 2 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Broadsword Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Crosscutting Slash: 1 >Twisting Body Strike: Toward - 1 >Piercing Low Lunge: Down - 1 >Crushing Side Slash: 2 >Overhead Strike: Down - 2 >Gut Ripping Stab: 3 >Rising Slash: Back - 3 >Low Stab: Down - 3 >Half Moon Slash: 4 >Full Moon Strike: Toward - 4 >Spinning Low Slash: Down - 4 Kombo Chains: >Sharpen the Mind: 2 - 1 >Clouds Over Head: 2 - 2 >Tiger Leaps Suddenly: 2 - Toward - 1 >Onslaught: 4 - Down - 4 >Rise and Shine: 4 - Toward - 1 >Dao Strikes: 2 - 4 - Down - 4 >Phoenix Tail: 2 - 4 - Toward - 1 =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=- Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=- > Hat Throw: Back - Toward - 1 > Whirlwind Kicks: Down - Back - 4 Fatality: Down - Up - Back - 3 Description: Kung Lao takes off his hat and violently whips it at his opponent. The hat lodges itself vertically into their skull, causing them to fall backward. Kung Lao slowly saunters over to his fallen, bloody opponent, and strikes them in the stomach with his foot. The hat pops into the air, out of the opponent's head, and into Kung Lao's hand. Lao then calmly places his bladed hat back onto his back/head. Ending: Rage fueled Kung Lao's thirst for revenge. The memory of holding his fellow monk's broken body on the lei tai of the Wu Shi Academy grounds consumed him as he rained blow after blow down upon Shang Tsung. Kung Lao had finally mastered the attack Bo' Rai Cho had taught him. The sorcerer could not withstand his whirlwind assault. Shang Tsung begged for mercy. Kung Lao granted him none. Upon his return to Earthrealm, Kung Lao stood before the modest shrine to Liu Kang which had been erected by the Wu Shi initiates during his absence in Outworld. He lit a stick of incense and placed it among the others already burning there. He bowed his head and prayed for safe passage to the afterlife for his friend and brother. With Shang Tsung's death, Liu Kang's spirit could rest peacefully. Earthrealm was safe once more, but at terrible cost. The work of the White Lotus society had become more important than ever. =-=-=-= Nitara: =-=-=-= Stats: Status: Vampire Alignment: Neutral Weight: Unknown Height: Unknown Styles: Leopard and Fu Jow Pai Weapon: Kama Difficulty: 5 *Nitara becomes playable only after unlocking koffin "TI" costing 4,022 Gold Koins.* Description: Nitara is a new character to Mortal Kombat. She has shoulder length brown hair with a gold necklace. She has red sleeves and a brown speckled bra with matching underwear. Her kama is attached to a chain that runs around her stomach. The massive wings attached to her back are her trademark. Alternate Costume: Nitara's alternate costume is not all that different than her regular one. Her face is pale white in the new costume, and her bottom is showing under her waistband. She also wears cool new boots, that have spiked heels. Her knee pads are also spiked. She has tattoos running up and down her arms and legs now too. (Nitara's alternate costume is in koffin "AR" and costs 2,206 Jade Koins). Story: The vampire Nitara had at long last discovered the location of the Orb that bound her to Outworld. Unfortunately, it rested in a location she could bever access. However, the ninja cyborg Cyrax of Earthrealm had the ability to retrieve it for her.

She then proceeds to pounce on her opponent's body, and dig her fangs into their neck. She proceeds to suck their blood for a good couple seconds, stopping to spit out the excess. She then goes back to feeding; when she is done, she kicks the opponent away from her and lands perfectly on her feet. Ending: After what seemed like an eternity, Cyrax finally emerged from the lava, holding the Orb that had bound Nitara's realm to Outworld for ages. At last it was within her grasp. She would be able to free her people from Shao Kahn's imprisonment. Fulfilling her end of the bargain, she sent Cyrax back to his Earthrealm home in exchange for the Orb. Nitara stared into the Orb. It seethed with the power trapped within. She raised it above her head, and then smashed it to the floor. It shattered with an inhuman, soul-rending howl. Its horrible energy exploded away, and tore her consciousness from her. She awoke later for the first time on her native soil. =-=-=-=- Drahmin: =-=-=-=- Stats: Status: Oni Demon Alignment: Evil Weight: Unknown Height: Unknown Styles: Netherealm and Oni Weapon: Iron Club Difficulty: 5 *Drahmin becomes playable only after unlocking koffin "UR" costing 6,500 Sapphire Koins.* Description: Drahmin is the Oni-Tormentor. His face has been badly scarred, so he wears his tribal mask as a result. It appears as if he has no skin. It all looks just like muscle. He has a club attached to his right arm. The club has spikes attached to the club. It is said that his tribal mask holds his true power. He constantly has flies buzzing around his body as well. Alternate Costume: Drahmin's alternate looks very similar to his regular costume. He has shoulder guards, and a shrunken head hanging off his left shoulder. His iron club still encases his right hand/arm. He wears what looks like silver plate mail, and silver plate mail "pants." He has silver shin guards, and fights barefoot. (Drahmin's alternate costume is in koffin "SW" and costs 1,152 Jade Koins). Story: The Oni Tormentor Drahmin resided in the 5th plane of the Netherealm for centureies. It was therefore no surprise that Drahmin would so readily accept Quan Chi's offer of freedom from that realm in return for protectoin from the ninja spectre Scorpion. Drahmin and Moloch savagely brutalized Scorpion whenever he made a move for Quan Chi. It would not be long before they would be released upon the world of the living and taste mortal flesh once more. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Netherealm Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Big Whack: 1 >Low Swipe: Down - 1 >Gut Smash: 2 >Low Strike: Down - 2 >Straight Kick: 3 >Back Kick: Back - 3 >Rising Blast: Down - 3 >Hooking Kick: 4 >Low Kick: Down - 4 >Taunt: SM >Throw: Toward - SM =-=-=-=-=-=-=- Oni Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Iron Lunge: 1 >Low Swipe: Down - 1 >Smashing Iron: Back - 1 >Crushing Chop: 2 >Low Strike: Down - 2 >Frontal Kick: 3 >Sweep: Back - 3 >Rising Blast: Down - 3 >Side Kick: 4 >Low Kick: Down - 4 >Shove: SM >Throw: Toward - SM =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Iron Club Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Head Smash: 1 >Leaping Smash: Up - 1 >Mid Swipe: Down - 1 >Uppercut: 2 >Doom Chop: Back - 2 >Low Strike: Down - 2 >Iron Strike: 3 >Iron Sweep: Back - 3 >Rising Blast: Down - 3 >Neck Jab: 4 >Power Swipe: Back - 4 >Low Kick: Down - 4 >Nejin: SM >Throw: Toward - SM =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= > Ball-O-Flies: Back - Toward - 2 > Propeller Clock: Toward - Toward - 2 > Super Uppercut: Down - Back - 1 > Ground Smash: Back - Down - 4 Fatality: Back - Toward - Toward - Down - 3 Description: Drahmin raises his clubbed right arm, and brings it down hard upon his opponent's head.

Ending: Sent by the sorcerer Shang Tsung, the two Oni known as Drahmin and Moloch confronted Quan Chi, enraged that he had tried to leave them stranded in the bowels of the Netherealm. In the battle that ensued, Drahmin leapt at Quan Chi and both kombatants stumbled into the Inner Sanctum Chamber. Moments later, Drahmin emerged from the chamber altered from his previous form. =-=-=-=- Hsu Hao: =-=-=-=- Stats: Status: Red Dragon Alignment: Evil Weight: 220 lbs.

The beam hits the opponent immediately tearing at their flesh. Within a few seconds, their upper torso flies backward. The camera pans to the torso while it tries to "get away." The two hands are hoisting the torso off the ground, all the while massive amounts of blood spills from the torso. A few moments later, it collapses in a bloody heap. Ending: Hsu Hao reported to his superior, Mavado, and informed him of his success in destroying the Special Forces Outerworld Investigation Agency. Mavado then informed Hsu Hao of his next objective... It seemed that Quan Chi was proving to be a powerful ally and was willing to aid the Red Dragon in its quest for domination of Earth. In a show of good faith, Mavado agreed to destroy Quan Chi's enemies. The sorcerer suspected betrayal from Shang Tsung. There was evidence that Shang Tsung had allied with the two Oni known as Moloch and Drahmin. Hsu Hao's new orders were to eliminate the sorcerer Shang Tsung before the Oni eliminated Quan Chi. =-=-=- Frost: =-=-=- Stats: Status: Lin Kuei Alignment: Unknown Weight: 120 lbs.

She proceeds to shoot the ice at her opponent's feet, slowly moving up their body, completely encasing them in ice. She then proceeds to front kick their entire upper torso off of the rest of their body, shattering it on the ground. Their bloody body is still visible encased in ice, as their frozen bottom half rests on the ground. Ending: As they traveled back to the portal that would return them to Earthrealm, Sub-Zero revealed to Frost that she had been an integral part in the destruction of the Deadly Alliance, and that he was proud to have her as a member of the Lin Kuei clan. But unknown to Sub-Zero, Frost's true intention for joining the Lin Kuei was to become Grand Master herself. She used her ice blast to temporarily immobilize him and ripped the Dragon Medallion from his chest. As she held the medallion, she felt power surge through her body. Lacking the strength and discipline required to control the medallion's immense power, she was consumed by her own freezing ability. =-=- Jax: =-=- Stats: Status: Special Forces Alignment: Good Weight: 350 lbs.

A couple seconds later, the opponent violently explodes into a mess of bones, blood, and bloody popcorn. This Fatality closely resembles one of Raiden's from Mortal Kombat 4. Ending: Once again, the threat to Earthrealm has been vanquished. The Deadly Alliance is no more. What dangers lie in the future, I can no longer foresee. Perhaps the Dragon King will, in fact, return. Perhaps the depths of the Netherealm will spew forth a legion of Oni. Even the Vampire people pose a threat to peace now that Outworld is in chaos. But one thing is certain... Earthrealm must be protected. I have abandoned my status as Elder God to aid these mortals... an act defiant of the Heavens. I will instead remain here on Earth... as GOD OF THUNDER. =-=-=-=- Reptile: =-=-=-=- Stats: Status: Warrior Alignment: Evil Weight: 189 lbs. Height: 6'0" Styles: Hung Gar and Crab Weapon: Kirehashi Difficulty: 5 *Reptile becomes playable only after unlocking koffin "LL" for 3,822 Gold Koins.* Description: Reptile is back to his reptilian form a la Mortal Kombat 4. He wears no mask and has what looks like samurai garb on. He has green and gold shoulder pads and silver shin pads. His faces looks like that of an iguana. He has very long claws on his hands and feet. His tail stretches out behind him and is spiked all the way from his neck to the tip of his tail. Alternate Costume: Reptile appears to be wearing some semblance of clothes in this costume. He wears a light "shirt" and has a medallion on his chest. He has a tan cloth flowing in front of him. He also has skull knee pads on his knees. His spiked tail is still intact. (Reptile's alternate costume is in koffin "XO" and costs 1,736 Sapphire Koins). Story: Reptile's detour to Kitana's base camp had delayed him just long enough for Shang Tsung and Quan Chi to spring their attack on Shao Kahn. Reptile was devastated that he had failed his master and wandered the Outworld wastelands aimlessly until he once agian crossed paths with Nitara. Desperately in need of a master, he offered his loyalty to her. Her first command to him was to attack the invader from Earthrealm, Cyrax. She explained that he must first destroy his arm panel in order to weaken the outsider. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Hung Gar Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Scratching Claw: 1 >Low Paw Attack: Down - 1 >Double Claw Strike: Back - 1 >Chameleon Palm: 2 >Low Claw Strike: Down - 2 >Dual Claw Strike: 3 >Forward Strike: Down - 3 >Lizard Smash: Back - 3 >Low Snap Kick: 4 >Mid Roundhouse Kick: Down - 4 >Spinning Roundhouse Kick: Back - 4 >Hook Sweep Kick: Toward - 4 >Shove: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Lazy Lizard: 1 - 2 >Internal Strikes: 3 - 2 >Wise Tiger: 1 - 3 - 2 >Iron Thread: 1 - 3 - 4 - Back - 1 >Matriach: 1 - 3 - 4 - CS - 1 - 3 >Evolution: 1 - 3 - 4 - CS - 1 - 1 >Zaterrorize: 1 - 3 - 4 - CS - 1 - Back - 2 - CS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Crab Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Upward Elbow Strike: 1 >Spinning Elbow Strike: Back - 1 >Low Punch: Down - 1 >Ridge Hand Swipe: 2 >Dual Uppercut: Back - 2 >Low Dual Uppercut: Down - 2 >Spinning Back Kick: 3 >Hooking Sweep: Back - 3 >Low Snap Punch: Down - 3 >Mid Hook Kick: 4 >Low Hook Kick: Down - 4 >Reversal: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Boiling Water: Back - 1 - 3 >Crab Crawls on Sand: 1 - 1 - 3 >Claws of Fury: 1 - 1 - 1 >Reptilian Rage: 1 - 1 - Back - 2 - CS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Kirehashi Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Downward Slash: 1 >Circular Swing: Back - 1 >The Cutter: Up - 1 >Low Lunge: Down - 1 >Side Slash: 2 >Spinning Slash: Back - 2 >Balde Chop: Down - 2 >Upward Slash: 3 >Low Swipe: Back - 3 >Low Poke: Down - 3 >Mid Lunge: 4 >Blade Smash: Back - 4 >Spinning Blade: Down - 4 >Impale: SM Kombo Chains: >Dead End: 2 - 2 >Reptilian Slice: 3 - 3 >Shredder: Back - 2 - Back - 2 >Rip Torn: 1 - Back - 2 - Back - 2 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= > Lizard Ball: Toward - Down - 4 > Acid Spit: Back - Toward - 1 Fatatlity: Up - Up - Up - Toward - 3 Description: Reptile pounces onto his opponent and proceeds to vomit acid upon their head. When he is done, he jumps off his opponent revealing their skinless skull; which had disintigrated from the acid. He then lashes out his tongue which attaches to their exposed skull. He jerks his head back tearing the skull from their neck, straight into his mouth. The opponent's headless body squirts blood before slumping to the ground. Ending: Despite the strong sulphurous stench that filled the chamber, Reptile could smell that Nitara and Cyrax had been there recently. There was no sign of them now, except for some scattered glass shards and a residual trace of strong magical energies. His revenge would have to wait. Suddenly an expectant hush filled the chamber as energy cascaded around what appeared to be a dragon embryo. The tiny dragon stretched and the egg cracked. A beam of energy ripped out from inside and lanced into Reptile. His world was filled with roaring power as his squamous body was twisted and transformed. The ancient prophecy had been fulfilled: the Dragon King had returned. =-=-=- Cyrax: =-=-=- Stats: Status: Special Forces Alignment: Good Weight: 650 lbs. Height: 5'11" Styles: Ninjitsu and Sambo Weapon: Pulse Blade Difficulty: 4 *Cyrax becomes playable only after unlocking koffin "CN" costing 3,003 Platinum Koins.* Description: Cyrax looks almost identical to what he did in Mortal Kombat 3. He still wears his yellow robot suit, with the compartment in the front for his bombs. He has black and yellow shin pads, along with silver boots. His helmet is exactly the same with holes slit in the mouth area, and the cables flowing out the top of his head, like hair. Alternate Costume: Cyrax does not have his entire helmet in this costume. His face is revealed, and he is African American. He has a mouthpiece from the top of his helmet going to his mouth to communicate with other members of the Special Forces. He has contraptions on his almost bare arms. He no longer has the yellow metal to protect him. He has a yellowish/gold flap flowing in front of him. His "pants" are a silverish/black and he has black knee pads. His shoes are black with a yellow stripe across the toes. (Cyrax's alternate costume is in koffin "ZW" and costs 1,485 Sapphire Koins). Story: The cyborg ninja Cyrax regained his soul with the aid of Special Forces agents Sonya Blade and Jackson Briggs. In return for their help, he joined the Special Forces Outerworld Investigation Agency and became a scout in the realm of Outworld. On his last transport to that realm, a reptilian creature ambushed Cyrax. His arm console was damaged in the struggle and with it his Inter-realm portal technology. He defeated the creature, but still will have to find some other means to return to Earthrealm. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Ninjitsu Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= >Sraight Kick: 1 >Ninja Strike: Back - 1 >Low Punch: Down - 1 >Strong Elbow: 2 >Double Fist Strike: Up - 2 >Low Palm Strike: Down - 2 >Spinning Back Kick: 3 >Shin Kick: Back - 3 >Low Kick: Down - 3 >Front Kick: 4 >Ducking Mid Kick: Down - 4 >Back Flip: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >Ninja Strikes: 1 - 1 - 1 >Stealth Blast: 1 - 1 - 2 >Cyborg Strikes: 1 - 1 - Back - 1 >Yellow Doom: 1 - 1 - 3 >Full Gore: 1 - 1 - Up - 2 >Pain Killer: 1 - 1 - Back - 1 - CS =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Sambo Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Quick Jab: 1 >Hammerfist Strike: Back - 1 >Low Hook Punch: Down - 1 >Shoulder Toss: 2 >Straight Chop: Up - 2 >Rising Fist: Down - 2 >Backward Elbow: Back - 2 >Roundhouse: 3 >Low Fist Strike: Down - 3 >Big Leg: 4 >Low Shin Kick: Down - 4 >Taunt: SM >Throw: Toward - SM Kombo Chains: >3 Step Rush: 1 - 1 - 1 >Quicksand: 1 - 1 - 4 >Ketchup: 1 - 1 - Back - 1 >Mustard: 1 - 1 - Back - 2 >LK9T9: Back - 2 - Toward - 2 - CS >Oil Leak: Back - 2 - Toward - 2 - Up - 2 >LK4D4: 1 - 1 - Back - 2 - Toward - 2 - CS >Self Destruct: 1 - 1 - Back - 2 - Toward - 2 - Up - 2 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Pulse Blade Move List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- >Cutting Blade: 1 >Sweeping Edge: Back - 1 >Stomping Blade: Up - 1 >Downward Blade: Down - 1 >Circling Swipe: 2 >Lifting Blade: Back - 2 >Low 2-Hit Strike: Down - 2 >Back Kick: 3 >Sweep Kick: Back - 3 >Twisting Edge: Down - 3 >Knee Strike: 4 >Thrusting Sword: Down - 4 >Impale: SM =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Special Moves List: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= > Detonator: (Far) Back - Toward - 1 > Detonator: (Close) Toward - Back - 1 > Spinkicks: Down - Back - 3 > Slice and Dice: Back - Toward - 4 Fatality: Toward - Toward - Up - 2 Description: Cyrax opens his front chest plate and extends a mechanical arm with tongs attached to the end. It grasps the opponent's head and proceeds to raise them in the air and violently smashes their helpless body into the ground three times, as massive amounts of blood splatter out. He then raises them again and inserts them horizontally into his chest; blood then trickles down the front of his chest plate. A second later, he "shoots" out pieces of their body along with massive amounts of blood. Ending: The enormous heat and pressure of the lava burned out Cyrax's sensors almost immediately. He cast about blindly in the infernal pit, searching for the orb Nitara had sent him to locate. Cyrax found it resting upon a small submerged pedestal beneath the molten depths. As soon as he clambered to the surface, she demanded he hand over the Orb. Nitara had promised to return Cyrax to Earthrealm once the orb had been retrieved. Taking her necklace in hand, she uttered a mystical incantation. A swirling portal opened around Cyrax and he only had time for a solemn bow before he was swept into the gateway. =-=-=-=-=- XI.

The Krypt: =-=-=-=-=-=-=-= All of the koffins, their kurrency value and type will be presented here, along with what each individual koffin contains in a future version. -=-=-=-=-=-= XV.Konquest: -=-=-=-=-=-= The Konquest Mode featured in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is a training ground for the individual characters. Konquest starts off with eight (8) introductory missions that pertain to every character. After the introductory missions are completed, the game allows the player to choose an individual character and progress through ten (10) additional missons specific to the character chosen. Each fighter has similar, but somewhat different objectives to complete; they basically entail the character's special moves, and combos, and how to use them effectively. Below I will list each character's individual missions, as well as what they entail, with my pointers along the way. Another bonus for going through the Konquest Mode is that it rewards the player with kurrency to be spent in the Krypt. So not only does it introduce new characters, and how to use them, it also allows for players to purchase koffins in the Krypt. Below are the first eight (8) introductory missions for the Konquest Mode: -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Introductory Mission - 1 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Pre-Mission Introduction: The path of every warrior has a humble beginning, and the road to one's destiny is long traveled. Each of life's challenges brings you closer to enlightenment. Experience is the path to understanding. By completing these many journeys to come, you will have gained the strength, speed, agility, and wisdom to master a variety of fighting arts. Every step is a victory. How you maneuver in kombat plays as much a part of your strategy as how you punch or kick. Tapping your control pad toward or away from you opponent will guide your movements, as you will see. Directions: Step toward the ninja 3 times. Then, step away from him 3 times. > Tap - Toward, Toward, Toward > Tap - Back, Back, Back Do not assume that offensiveness is always the correct path to victory. A hasty retreat can give you the space you need to plan for your next attack. By quickly tapping twice away from your opponent, you can perform a Backward Dash. Directions: Put distance between you and Scorpion by performing 3 Backward Dashes. > Tap Back - Back, and Back - Back again to complete the mission. Mission Complete! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Introductory Mission - 2 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Pre-Mission Introduction: Learn and forget. Make the technique a part of yourself before you move on. Becoming familiar with the fighting styles of the warrior you have chosen to emulate is very important. Know a fighting style like you would know yourself. Let no attribute escape you. Directions: Strike your opponent once with each of these 4 basic attacks to understand their characteristics. >Attack 1 >Attack 2 >Attack 3 >Attack 4 Often you can perform different attacks with the same button by holding one of the Control Pad directions at the same time. For example, pressing 2 while holding Back will execute a different attack than pressing only 2. Directions: Strike Scorpion with each of Sub-Zero's high punch attacks. > 4 > Back - 4 Mission Complete! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Introductory Mission - 3 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Pre-Mission Introduction: One wins battles by making no mistakes. Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated. Attacks that are exectured by combining the Control Pad and an attack button will often strike your opponent in different locations. In Sub-Zero's Shotokan fighting style, the 3 button will initiate an attack to his opponent's chest. However, by holding Back and 3, Sub-Zero will attack his opponent's knees. Directions: Strike Scorpion with each of Sub-Zero's high and low attacks. > 2 > Back - 2 A mixture of high and low attacks can overcome the defenses of even the most determind foe. Directions: Strike Scorpion with 2 high attacks and 2 low attacks. > 1 > 2 > Down - 2 > Down - 3 Mission Complete! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Introductory Mission - 4 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Pre-Mission Introduction: Let your rapidity be that of the wind, your compactness that of the forest. Letyour plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt. You must learn to let your fighting technique flow from you. Every warrior has the potential to effortlessly link his or her moves into one long attack combination. For example, Sub-Zero can combine his Shotokan attacks 1 and 2 buy pressing the 1 and 2 buttons in rapid succession. Directions: Test your attack combo skills. Execture the short form of Sub-Zero's Shotokan combo called Icy Pain. > 1 - 2 You are indeed a warrior of great skill. You have mastered the technique of combining many attacks into one attack. This knowledge will serve you well on your coming journeys. Directions: Now try the full Icy Pain combo move. > 1 - 2 - 4 Mission Complete! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Introductory Mission - 5 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Pre-Mission Introduction: A pacifist cultivates good karma. Defense is just as important as offense in the Art of Mortal Kombat. A true warrior must know when to avoid contact as well as when to strike. A defensive warrior can block an attack by holding Block while his opponent strikes. Directions: You must now attempt to block 5 of Scorpion's strikes. >A timer counts down from 3, and when it reaches 0, Scorpion strikes. Make sure you hold down block when the counter reaches 1, to avoid being hit. Complete this 5 times and move on. Your opponent may attack from above or from below. You must learn to defend from either direction. Directions: Practice what you have learned and block 3 of Scorpion's high attacks. >Same thing as before, but now there is no timer. Scorpion randomly throws punches; just sidestep them, and hold block. Complete this 3 times and move on. Directions: Excellent. Now block 3 low attacks. >Once again, same thing, again with no timer. Scorpion randomly performs a series of trips. Just hold down the Block button, and block 3 of his attacks to complete the mission. Mission Complete! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Introductory Mission - 6 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Pre-Mission Introduction: For you to become a true master of Mortal Kombat, you must learn to attack with multiple fighting styles. Every warrior has 3 fighting styles, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Sub-Zero's 3 fighting styles are Shotokan, Dragon, and Kori Blade. It is important to understand the different advantages and disadvantages of each fighting style. By using the Change Fighting Style button, a warrior can instantly switch to another fighting style with a completely different set of attacks and special moves. Depending on the situation, a warrior may choose to switch to a different fighting style to take advantage of its differing attacks. Directions: Cycle through all 3 of Sub-Zero's fighting styles. >Hit the Fighting Style button 3 times. You must now demonstrate your knowledge of multi-style fighting by striking your foe with an attack from each of your fighting styles. Directions: First, you must attack Scorpion with any attack. Then you must switch to the next fighting style and strike with a different attack. Finally, you must switch to your third fighting style, and strike one more time. >Cycle through each style, tapping button 1, to make it easy. Mission Complete! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Introductory Mission - 7 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Pre-Mission Introduction: If you desire total victory in Mortal Kombat, you must learn to harness the tools at your disposal. The weapon is an extension of every warrior's soul. Though a weapon may deliver great amounts of damage to one's opponent, wielding a weapon also means taking more damage. Be wary of your health while brandishing a weapon. Directions: Use your Kori Blade to beat your opponent senseless. >Scorpion rushes in with an onslaught of attacks. I found it easy to perform Sub-Zero's 1 - Back - 1 (Bitter Blade) combo with his sword. It does a lot of damage, and before I knew it, Scorpion had lost all his health. Likewise, if your opponent is wielding a weapon, take advantage of his or her increased vulnerability and strike to achieve maximum kombative effectiveness. Directions: Attack Scorpion while he is holding his weapon to exploit his weakened state. He will take the most damage with a weapon in his hand. >Scorpion comes out swinging this time, with high hitting combos involving his sword. Sidestep his attacks and attack him with the 1 - Back - 1 (Bitter Blade) combo again. It should keep him at bay and drain his life to zero. Mission Complete! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Introductory Mission - 8 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Pre-Mission Introduction: A tree sways in the breeze... By mastering the 3D walk, a dexterous warrior can outmaneuver an attacking foe, avoid external barriers, or force an opponent into an obstacle. A useful 3D walk technique is the Evasion. If you timed right, an attacking opponent can be dodged, leaving him or her open for a counter-attack. This method of evasion will require much practice, but once you have mastered it, you will become a most formidable kombatant. Directions: Quickly sidestep Shang Tsung's attack as it approaches. >A counter starting at 3 is once again displayed in the middle of the screen. Wait until the counter reaches 1, and press either Down, Down, or Up, Up to sidestep Tsung's attack. Complete this 3 times and you have completed the introductory missions of Konquest Mode. Mission Complete! You have mastered the fundamentals of Mortal Kombat. Use this knowledge well as you begin yor spiritual journey and experience conflict through the eyes of skilled warriors. You are now able to select any availabe character and continue your training through his or her individual Konquest missions. I will list each character's Konquest Missions in the order they appear on the select screen. *NOTE* You cannot go through Konquest Mode with a character you have not unlocked yet. In other words, one must unlock either Nitara, Drahmin, Hsu Hao, Frost, Jax, Kitana, Raiden, Reptile, and Cyrax in order to play through their respective Konquest missions. *NOTE* =-=-=-=-=-=- Shang Tsung: =-=-=-=-=-=- >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 1: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: The Sorcerer Shang Tsung is cursed to consume the souls of defeated warriors in order to stay alive. From these souls he attains greater strength and ability. It could be said that his fighting skill is the culmination of those he has conquered. We shall see if you can master his fighting ability through practice alone. The history of Shang Tsung's Snake fighting style is hard to trace historically because it is incorporated into so many Chinese fighting systems. Shang Tsung absorbed this fighting style by consuming the soul of a Shaolin Monk. The Snake fighting style consists mainly of fast-jabbing, short-ranged high attacks.

You Earned 150 Sapphire Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 2: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Shao Kahn had sent orders to Shang Tsung, commanding the sorcerer to aid him in the battle against the united forces of Edenia and the Shokan. The message was delivered by Reptile. At first, Shang Tsung did not recognize Reptile, for he had morped into something more primal than in years past. Shang Tsung mistook Reptile for an assassin and braced for an attack. Shang Tsung poised himself in the Crane Style stance. Reptile perceived this to be offensive move. A battle ensued. Directions: Attack the assassin with Shang Tsung's Crane fighting style high attacks. 1. Chin Punch: 1 2. Crane Neck: Down - 1 3. Strong Knee: Back - 2 4. Backfist: Down - 2 5. Flapping Wing: 3 6.

Directions: Counter the assassin's attack with a Reversal move while in the Crane style. > A timer is displayed in the middle of the screen counting down from 3. When it reaches 1, hit the Special Move button to counter Reptile's attack, and complete the mission. Mission Complete! You Earned 150 Gold Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 3: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Shang Tsung finally recognized Reptile and ceased his attack. Reptile gave him Shao Kahn's orders to report to the Emperor's fortress, and then he departed. Moments later, there was a ruckus in the outside courtyard. Shang Tsung emerged from his domicile to find that the sorcerer Quan Chi had just defeated Scorpion in a short but heated battle. Quan Chi explained that the ninja spectre had been lying in wait for Shang Tsung. If Quan Chi had not been there to intervene, Shang Tsung would surely have been attacked by the ninja spectre, Scorpion.

Directions: Impale Scorpion with your Straight Sword. > Scorpion begins to move around and attack with high hitting combos. Block one of his combos and Impale him with the sword soon thereafter to complete the mission. Mission Complete! You earned 150 Jade Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 4: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Quan Chi had come to Shang Tsung with an offer to form an alliance. He explained in detail how the two sorcerers could greatly benefit each other if they joined forces. shang Tsung was no fool. He understood the riskes involved with Quan Chi's proposal. But after some convincing from his fellow sorcerer, he readily agreed. The first act of the Deadly Alliance would be to eliminate Shao Kahn. Shang Tsung made use of Shao Kahn's mandate to return to his fortress as a means to get within striking distance. Directions: An attack Shang Tsung used while he and Quan Chi fought the emperor, Shao Kahn, was his fireball. One variation is the Straight Fire. Practice this attack on Quan Chi 3 times. >Perform Shang Tsung's Straight Fire by tapping Down - Back - 1, 3 times to complete this objective.

After many failures, success finally came when he trained the legendary Liu Kang, who defeated Shang Tsung and became champion of the Earthrealm tournament. You will have the honor of learning from the master. You will begin training in the fighting style known as Drunken Fist. Although there are many varieties of drunken style Kung Fu, ;you will be concentrating on the Shaolin style. The earliest reference to any drunken style is in the Sun Dynasty (960 - 1276 A.D.) Rumors indicate, however, that it was in fact Master Bo' Rai Cho who first brought the Drunken fighting style to Earthrealm centuries earlier while trying to thwart Shao Kahn's takeover of that realm.

You earned 150 Ruby Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 3: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Jojutsu is the Japanese art of the short staff. It was first used by Muso Gonnosuke in the early 1600's after his loss to the swordsman, Miyamato Musashi, while using a long staff of 6 feet. With assistance from Master Bo' Rai Cho, he subsequently developed a style with a shorter staff of 4 feet. Although he beat Musashi in a second duel, he was later defeated in his first Mortal Kombat tournament. Gonnosuke's soul was consumed by the sorcerer Shang Tsung. Master Bo' Rai Cho adopted Muso's Jojutsu style to include close-kombat, high-frequency attacks. Directions: Practice some of these Jojutsu high attacks on Muso Gonnosuke's murderer, Shang Tsung. 1.

You earned 175 Jade Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 5: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: You have mastered some of Bo' Rai Cho's Drunken Fist combos. You have impressed the Outworld master enough that he wishes to show you two sets of combos in one lesson-Mi Zong style and Jojutsu style. Begin with combos in the Mi Zong fighting style. Mi Zong has only 2 pop-up combos. A pop-up combo will lift opponent into the air long enough for you to execute another attack. Directions: You must execute these combos that end in a pop- up. 1. Iron Broom: 2 - 2 - Back - 4 2. Lost Track: 2 - 2 - Up - 4 You have learned the first part of this lesson. Now you must learn to attack your opponent while he is still in the air. Use a Mi Zong pop-up combo and, while Kung Lao is still in the air, hit him again. It is that simple. 1. 2 - 2 - Back - 4 - Up - 4 2. 2 - 2 - Up - 4 - Back - 4 Directions: That was adequate for today. You will now move on to Bo' Rai Cho's Jojutsu combos. 1. Homerun: 2 - 3 2.

Mission Complete! You earned 175 Jade Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 6: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Poor Kung Lao. He will feel that in the morning. For your next lessons, Bo' Rai Cho's Propel moves, you will use Jax as your sparring partner instead. Master Bo' Rai Cho has 2 special moves in which he hurls his big belly at his opponent for rib-crushing devastation. First, the Belly Bash, Toward - Toward - 4. It is a fast, medium-range attack that Bo' Rai Cho uses to bounce his opponents away from him. Directions: Bounce Jax 3 times with the Belly Bash. 1. Toward - Toward - 4 2. Toward - Toward - 4 3. Toward - Toward - 4 Ha HAAA! I love that move. Jax does not, however. He will not allow you to attemp the Belly Bash again, if he can help it. You must execute 4 more Belly Bashes to complete this lesson. >Dodge Jax's attacks, and when you see an opening, tap Toward - Toward - 4 to Belly Bash him 4 times. That has to be the most fun lesson you have ever learned. I enjoyed just watching you. Let us move on to the next humorous attack, the Flip-Flop, Down - Back - 1. this is a short-range attack that... well... you will see. Directions: Crush Jax with the Flip-Flop attack 3 times. 1. Down - Back - 1 2. Down - Back - 1 3. Down - Back - 1 Like a clown in a circus, is it not? I am beside myself with laughter! Unfortunately, Jax does not think it is so funny. He will punish you this time. Bo' Rai Chos' Flip-Flop attack, Down - Back - 1 should shut him up. Directions: Crush the crybaby 4 times with the Flip-Flop attack to complete this lesson. >Dodge Jax's attacks, and when you see an opening, tap Down - Back - 1 to Flip-Flop him 4 times. Mission Complete! You earned 200 Gold Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 7: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Jax is quite angry with you and will no longer spar. That is acceptable. There are other warriors willing to assist in your training. The beautiful Princess Kitana will fill in. You next lesson will be to learn Bo' Rai Cho's Ground Stomp, Toward - Back - 3. This move is unblockable and causes damage to those warriors who have their feet planted on the ground. Directions: Attack Kitana with 2 Ground Stomps. 1. Toward - Back - 3 2. Toward - Back - 3 Directions: That was quite fun! Did you see the look on her face? Perform the Ground Stomp 4 more times. >Tap Toward - Back - 3, 4 more times, when Kitana is off her guard. She continues to jump around, so time it just right. Directions: Oh my. Kitana seems annoyed. Perhaps she does not feel the joy that you do when performing this exercise. Convince her that it is all in good fun by executing the Ground Stomp 4 more times successfully. >Kitana will be attacking you this time, so be on the look out for her attacks. Time your move just right, when her feet are planted on the ground. Mission Complete! You earned 200 Gold Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 8: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Apparently Kitana is more tolerant than Jax was. She will remain to aid you in your training. But I fear that she will regret her decision once she oerans of your next lesson. Master Bo' Rai Cho has never married. The next move that he will show you is the reason why. Most heroes impress the ladies with their kombat skills. Master Bo' Rai Cho repulses them with his. In a vulgar, but most effective maneuver, the young Bo' Rai Cho would vomit on the ground in front of his opponent. If his opponent stepped in the bile, he would slip uncontrollably. This moment of immobility would give Bo' Rai Cho a chance to attack. Directions: Impress Kitana with Bo' Rai Cho's Puke Puddle 3 times. 1. Back - Toward - 2 2. Back - Toward - 2 3. Back - Toward - 2 Directions: That was quite fun, indeed! Did you see the look on her face this time? As expected, she was unamused. Catch her with a Puke Puddle 4 more times. >Attack Kitana with a low hitting combo, then tap Back - Toward - 2 for the Puke Puddle 4 times. Mission Complete! You earned 200 Gold Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 9: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Kitana has left the building. But Kung Lao has finished his meal and is ready for more endurance training. Your next lesson will encompass learning Style Branch combos. Style Branch combos are like normal combos except that they change fighting styles during the attack. This first test statts in the Drunken Fist fighting style and goes into the Mi Zong fighting style. 1. 2 - 2 - 1 - 1 - CS Directions: Impressive! Now try that same combo but finish it with a Mi Zong attack. 1. Last Call: 2 - 2 - 1 - 1 - CS - 2 - Back - 4 Beautifully done! This next combo starts in Mi Zong and goes into the Jojutsu weapon fighting style. 1. Critical Strike: 2 - 2 - CS Excellent. But this next combo should prove to be quite a challenge. you must first start in the Drunken Fist style, change to the Mi Zong style, then finish in the Jojutsu weapon style. 1. Bottoms Up: 2 - 2 - 1 - 1 - CS - 2 - CS Mission Complete! You earned 250 Ruby Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 10: <<<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Most impressive! You have learned much through your journey. You have mastered many fighting styles and have beaten many opponents. But there is one foe you still need to confront... It is one thing to defeat a foe that does not share your thoughts. It is a completely different situation when confronting a foe that can anticipate your every move. Your final test will be to face a mirror image of Bo' Rai Cho. If you can win 3 out of 5 matches, you will have completed your training. Good Luck. Directions: Win 3 out of 5 matches in a duel to the death. >Bo' Rai Cho is definitely tough to beat, as he has so many immobolizing moves, like his Puke Puddle. Refrain from using this move, as it not only always misses, it leaves you wide open for a beating. Instead focus on some of his longer hit combos, when you see the chance. Use his throw often, and his Jojutsu combos work great as well. Have fun kicking his fat ass. Mission Complete! Congratulations! You have finished your training! This journey is complete. But the road to your destiny is long traveled, and there is always more to learn. You earned 300 Ruby Koins. -=-=-=-=- Quan Chi: -=-=-=-=- >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 1: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: The sorcerer Quan Chi is as vile as they come. His kombat skills come from a great understanding of sorcery, rahter than from actual training or practice. You will not be as fortunate on this journey. You will have to learn the hard way. The first of Quan Chi's styles that you must learn is Tang Soo Do. Tang Soo Do is a relatively modern Korean martial art developed by Hwang Kee. It is a combination of several arts, which Hwang Kee studied during his life. These arts included Soo Bahk Do (Korean), Tae Kyun (Korean), Tang Method (Northern Chinese), and Southern Chinese (unspecified). Scorpion had brutalized Quan Chi while they were both stranded in the 5th plane of the Netherealm. The ninja spectre drew strength from that realm, whereas Quan Chi's sorcery weakened. Quan Chi had to rely on his most basic of attacks to fend off Scorpion's assaults. Directions: Prepare yourself, dark acolyte, for you are about to train in Quan Chi's Tang Soo Do basic attacks. 1. Open Palm: 1 2. Forward Open Palm: 2 3. Front Ball Kick: 3 4. One Knuckle Fist Punch: Back - 4 5. Downward Elbow: Back - 1 Directions: Excellent. Let us move on to Tang Soo Do low attacks. Quan Chi uses these attacks to clode proximity to his opponent. 1. Knee Chop: Down - 1 2. Low Spearhand: Down - 2 3. Low Parallel Punch: Down - 3 4. Sweeping Knife Hook: 4 5. Low Foot Strike: Down - 4 Well done. Quan Chi has a knack for reversing his fortunes. What seems like a devastating blow eventually turns to his advantage. Call it his sorcerer's luck. This dark fortune also applies to his fighting ability. When an opponent strikes, Quan Chi can perform what is called a Reversal to get the upper hand. Directions: Counter 3 attacks from the infidel Scorpion with Quan Chi's Reversal move. >A timer is displayed in the middle of the screen starting at 3. When it reaches 1, hit the SM Button to counter Scorpion's attack. Mission Complete! You earned 150 Sapphire Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 2: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Now you understnad the power of dark fortune. It seemed that Quan Chi had been trapped in the Netherealm to be forever tormented by the ninja spectre Scorpion. But fate turned to Quan Chi's favor when two oni, Moloch and Drahmin, presented to him ancient information regarding his amulet. This new information, enscribed on tablets, detailed the amulet's purpose and how to control it. Quan Chi used the information to escape the Netherealm trhough a cloaked Realm Gateway without his Oni companions. Quan Chi emerged in Outworld to find himself inside a large stone structure. He felt his powers returning and used them to decipher the hieroglyphs on a large sarcophagus. He was amazed to discover that he had stumbled upon the tomb of the long-forgotten Dragon King and his undefeatable army. As Quan Chi's magical strength returned, he slowly regained the fighting prowess drained from him during his time in the Netherealm. The fighting style Escrima was one of his first skills to reappear. Directions: Practice Quan Chi's basic Escrima attacks on the Netherealm Oni, Drahmin. 1. Pinasaka: 1 2. Backhand Strike: 2 3. Chest Strike: 3 4. Rising Knee Strike: 4 5. Deadly Palm: Back - 3 6. Straight Fist: Toward - 4 Eeeexcellent! Quan Chi's Escrima style utilizes a pop-up attack called the Lightning Strike. This move allows him to pop his opponent into the air long enough to execute another attack. Directions: Attack Drahmin with the Lightning Strike 3 times. 1. Back - 1 2. Back - 1 3. Back - 1 Directions: Very impressive. Dark One. Now for Quan Chi's Escrima low attacks. 1. Pintok: Down - 1 2. Piercing Elbow: Down - 3 3. Cutting Elbow: Down - 4 The next of Quan Chi's Escrima techniques to return to him was his Neijin. For a short period of time, a Neijin gives Quan Chi extra attacking power to wreak added damage upon his opponents. Directions: Perform a Neijin and strike the fool Oni, Drahmin. >Tap the SM Button, and hit Drahmin with a Green Skull, Down - Back - 1 to make it easy and complete the mission. Make sure to dodge his attacks first. Mission Complete! You earned 150 Ruby Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 3: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Quan Chi had regained enough strength to wield his Double Broadswords. Although this technique was similar to the single broadsword, Quan Chi considered the more advanced use of two weapons to be quite advantageous in kombat. They also proved to be advantageous in freeing himself from the tomb to search for the sorcerer, Shang Tsung. Directions: Practice these Double Broadsword techniques that Quan Chi has used to slay countless infidels foolish enough to oppose him. 1. Piercing Thrust: 1 2. Deceiving Strike: 2 3. Dual Blade Swing: Back - 2 4. 2-Hit Strike: 3 5. Dual Side Slash: 4 Directions: Indeed, your porwess with the swords is undeniable.

Circular Slash: Down - 4 Mission Complete! You earned 150 Gold Koins. Mission - 4: Pre-Mission Introduction: By the time Quan Chi had reached the rumored abode of Shang Tsung, his Special Attacks had regained full strength. And just in time, it would seem, Quan Chi was soon confronted by non other than Scorpion. The imbecile ninja must have somehow escaped the Netherealm trhough the same portal as Quan Chi, but had emerged elsewhere in Outworld. The two adversaries battle furiously, but Quan Chi gained the upper hand when he cast his Skull Fireball at the unsuspecting Scorpion. Quan Chi can focus his Fa Jing into a foul skull spectre and propel it at his opponent. This attack is painful, but it also serves to intimidate the weak-minded. Directions: Destroy Scorpion with 3 Skull Fireballs before time runs out. 1. Down - Back - 1 2. Down - Back - 1 3. Down - Back - 1 Although Quan Chi thought he had defeated Scorpion with his Skull Fireball, the ninja had only been feigning death, and sprung a surprise attack with his spear. Reeling from the pain inflicedted by the Skull Fioreball, the enraged ninja proved to be much more aggressive this time. Directions: Strike Scorpion down with 3 more Skull Fireballs before he defeats you or time runs out. >Complete the move 3 more times, but dodge Scorpion's attacks. He comes out swinging so be careful. He uses his spear alot, so keep your distance and block it. Counter with a Skull Fireball. Mission Complete! You earned 175 Sapphire Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 5: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Although Quan Chi had blasted Scorpion with his Skull Fireball multiple times, he finally resorted to his Rising Star Kick, and sent Scorpion flying backward into a moat of acid that surrounded the courtyard. A short time later, Shang Tsung emerged from a doorway to applaud his fellow sorcerer's victory. Shang Tsung had not interfered with their battle, and remained inside his home until the kombat had ceased. Scorpions's demise in the acid bath led Shang Tsung to believe that Quan Chi had defeated Scorpion with a lucky shot. The Special Attack that had sent Scorpion hurling into the acid bath is called the Rising Star Kick. It is a pop-up attack that can also be used to dodge projectiles. Quan Chi tried to propose an alliance with Shang Tsung, but Shang Tsung did not believe that Quan Chi was a worthy ally. Show Shang Tsung the Rising Star special move that Quan Chi used to defeat Scorpion. Directions: Perform the Rising Star 3 times. 1. Down - Back - 4 2. Down - Back - 4 3. Down - Back - 4 Shang Tsung believes that the Rising Star kick is indeed fast enough to hit an average warrior, but he laughs at the idea that it defeat an aggressive opponent such as the ninja specre, Scorpion. Show the infidel that you are a warrior worthy of a Deadly Alliance. Directions: Kick Shang Tsung 3 times with the Rising Star before he defeats you or time runs out. >Dodge Tsung's initial attacks, sidestep, and hit him with the Rising Star. Complete this 3 times and move on. You can also hit him once, and in mid-air hit him 2 more times to make it easier. Mission Complete! You earned 175 Gold Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 6: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Shang Tsung was impressed with Quan Chi's fighting abilities and agreed to listen to his proposal for an alliance between the two sorcerers. Quan Chi began my explaining that he could provide an endless supply of souls for Shang Tsung to consume in return for Shang Tsung's assistance in reviving the Dragon King's undefeatable army. Their combined efforts would achieve immortality, and Quan Chi would obtain military power. Just as Shang Tsung and Quan Chi will combine their efforts to become a stronger power, you must now learn to combine your moves to create more powerful attacks. Directions: Practice these Tang Soo Do combos before time runs out. 1. Face Breaker: 2 - 2 2. Path Maker: 3 - 3 3. Nightfall: Back - 1 - 4 4.

You earned 200 Sapphire Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 7: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Quan Chi had discovered that the amulet he stole from the Elder God, Shinnok, was in fact a key to manipulate inter-realm portals. Quan Chi pledged to unlock a portal to The Heavens to allow Shang Tsung to feed from the limitless souls of that realm. In return, Shang Tsung agreed to transplant the souls of defeated warriors into the mummified remains of the Dragon King's army.

The first was the Emperor of Outworld, Shao Kahn. Shao Kahn had been weakened by his defeat during the Earthrealm invasion, and Princess Kitana's military forces were causing an incredible strain on his remaining power. Under the pretense that they would aid the failing Emperor, they gained entrance to his throne room and sprung their attack. In a spectacular battle of brute stength and magic, Shao Kahn was defeated. Now, dark acolyte, you msut learn to combine Quan Chi's fighting styles into longer, more power attack combinations.

After slaying the Emperor, Shan Kahn, Quan Chi and Shang Tsung attempted to travel to Earthrealm by way of a celestial protal known only to sorcerer and deities. Although Quan Chi could reveal the cloaked portal with his amulet, he could not use the artifact to control it. To earn the right to pass, each sorcerer would have to defeat a representation of his greatest adversary. For Quan Chi that challenge came in the form of himself. Directions: Win 3 out of 5 matches in a duel to the death. >Quan Chi is a bit difficult to beat in the beginning, but once you get the hang of his moves, he becomes real simple. He always goes for the Pain Killer combo, which takes off massive damage. Wait for him to attempt it, blocking every attack, and counter with the exact same combo. If he gets far enough away from you Neijin, and use some heavy hitting Tang Soo Do and Double Broadsword combos, and he should be finished. Mission Complete! Congratulations!

The sword of his ancestors guides his movement as if he could see. The sword also seems to give him powers far beyond that of average kombatants. Tai Chi Chuan, or 'Supreme Ultimate Fist', consists of 13 postures which form the basis for all modern Tai Chi. It is considered an internal form of martial arts where internal energy, or 'Chi', is an important element. After the Special Forces operative, Cyrax, was reported missing in Outworld, Kenshi was recruited as a free agent to search for him. His ulterior motive for accepting the task, however, was to seek out the sorcerer Shang Tsung as well. Directions: For this first lesson in Tai Chi basic attacks, Cyrax will be your sparring partner. 1. Mid Palm Strike: 1 2. Chopping Strike: 2 3. Pushing Hands: Toward - 1 4.

He desired to become the greatest swordsman in the world and slew many great warriors to prove his superiority. You will challenge Master Bo' Rai Cho of Outworld with Kenshi's Katana fighting style so that you may learn to be the best. The Katana is the traditional Japanese long sword used by the Samurai.

He convinced himself that he should have a sword that refelcted his greatness. Directions: Next, you will learn Kenshi's Tai Chi attack combinations. Utilizing combos will greatly increase the damage done to your opponent. Begin. 1. Empty and Full: 1 - 1 2. Play By Ear: 2 - 2 - 2 - 3 3. Dark Fists: 2 - 2 - 2 - 1 - 1 Directions: Excellent.

Your next lesson will be to learn anouther of Sub-Zero's martial arts fighting styles, the Dragon style. The Dragon style is a southern Chinese style that imitates the movements of the mythological beast. The main attacking parts of the Dragon are its claws and tail, which are mimicked by the hands and legs of the practitioner. The Dragon is a symbol of power and strength.

Directions: Practice the Cold Shoulder against Nitara 2 times before time runs out. 1. Back - Toward - 4 2. Back - Toward - 4 Nice work, but vampires like Nitara can be nimble targets. She will not let you attack her this time. Directions: Execute the Cold Shoulder 2 times before Nitara defeats you. >Try to stay out of her reach, and as she comes in close to attack, let a Cold Shoulder go. Do this twice to complete the objective. Directions: Now try to combine these 2 icy attacks. Freeze Nitara, then follow up with a Cold Shoulder. Execute this 2 times. 1. Down - Toward - 1, Back - Toward - 4 2. Down - Toward - 1, Back - Toward - 4 >She attacks this time, so be careful. Mission Complete! You earned 175 Sapphire Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 5: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Excellent! You have mastered Sub-Zero's classic Freeze projectile attack. But to become Lin Kuei, you have much more to learn. An interesting new attack the medallion has unlocked for Sub-Zero is his Ice Shaker attack. Both offensive and defensive, this attack surrounds him with a super-chilled barrier that flash-freezes any opponent within range. Many years ago, Sub-Zero's brother was manipulated by the sorcerer Quan Chi to retrieve for him an amulet from it's hiding place in Eearthrealm. The sorcerer later framed Sub-Zero's brother for the death of Scorpion's family and clan, which led to his demise at the hands of the enraged ninja spectre, Scorpion. Quan Chi has much to answer for. Freeze him using Sub- Zero's Ice Shaker 3 times before times runs out. 1. Back - Down - 2 2. Back - Down - 2 3. Back - Down - 2 Well done. However, it was not enough to chill Quan Chi's already-cold heart. This time, he will not allow you the satisfaction of revenge. Directions: Freeze Quan Chi with Sub-Zero's Ice Shaker attack 3 times before time runs out. >Dodge Quan Chi' attacks, or sidestep them, then go for the Ice Shaker move. Complete this 3 times to complete the mission. Mission Complete! You earned 175 Sapphire Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 6: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Very well done. Now you must learn attack combinations. Utilizing combos will greatly increase the damage done to your opponent. Scorpion has hunted Sub-Zero for years. He believed that Sub-Zero murdered his family and clan. Now he believes Quan Chi to be the true murderer, and will not harm Sub-Zero. Directions: Practice these Shotokan combos on Scorpion before you face your real opponent. 1. 2 Hit Trick: 3 - 2 2. Peaceful Mind: 3 - Back - 2 3. King's Crown: 3 - Toward - 3 Directions: Well done! Let us see how you fare with some more complicated combos... 1. Peaceful Mind: 3 - Back - 2 2. King's Crown: 3 - Toward - 3 3. Iron Horse: 1 - 2 - Back - 2 4. Icy Pain: 1 - 2 - 4 5. Cloud Hands: 1 - 2 - Back - 1 Mission Complete! You earned 200 Sapphire Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 7: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Excellent! Now you must expand your training by mastering a few combos from another style. These next Dragon combo lessons will work similarly to the Shotokan combo lessons. At one time, the Red Dragon clan would have been considered a potential ally of the Lin Kuei. But not that Sub-Zero has transformed the Lin Kuei into a force for good, the Red Dragon will pose a great threat. Directions: Practice these Dragon style combos on the Red Dragon infiltrator, Hsu Hao. 1. Yielding Fire: 1 - 3 2. Dragon Dance: 1 - Back - 1 3. Icy Pop: 1 - 1 - 2 Directions: Well done! Let us see how you fare with some omre resistance, and a few more complicated combos. 1. Dragon Dance: 1 - Back - 1 2. Silent Dragon: 1 - 2 - 3 3. Twist of Tiger: 1 - 2 - Up - 4 4. 3 Hit Claws: 1 - 2 - Back - 2 5. Dragon Pays With 7 Stars: 1 - 2 - 4 >Hsu Hao will now be out and about, potentially ready to attack you. Block his move, or sidestep it, and perform the above combos to complete the objective. Hsu Hao is a powerful adversary. Apparently, those attacks did not intimidate him. Directions: Use these Kori Blade combos to prove that the Lin Kuei are a force to be reckoned with. 1. Bitter Blade: 1 - Back - 1 2. Cut Up: 4 - 4 >Once again, Hsu Hao is out and about to kill you. You only have 1 life bar to perform all these comobs on, so be careful, and don't let him get too close. Perform the above combos to complete the mission. Mission Complete! You earned 200 Sapphire Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 8: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Indeed you are most fortunate. You will now have the honor of participating in The Trial of Blood! Directions: Make Shang Tsung bleed 80 pints of blood before he defeats you or time runs out. >Immediately take out your Kori Blade, and repeatedly perform the Bitter Blade combo, 1 - Back - 1. That combo takes off massive "blood." This is a rather difficult Trial of Blood. Try to best avoid Shang's combos, as they not only whittle your life away, they take precious time off the clock. You only have 1 minute to complete this mission, so bide your time well. The 80 pints should come easy if you use the Kori Blade and its combos. Mission Complete! You earned 200 Jade Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 9: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Your combo skills have improved greatly. Now you must expand your training further. You must learn to combine fighting styles to form more powerful attack combinations. Combining multiple styles into one combo is called a Style Branch combo. This method of attack can separate the truly skiled warriors from the truly unskilled warriors... Directions: This first Style Branch combo begins with the Shotokan style, and goes into the Dragon style. 1. 1 - 2 - 4 - CS Directions: Good. Now you will repeat that Style Branch combo, but this time you will add one more attack from the Dragon style. 1. 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 2 Well done. Scorpion may rethink his vow not to kill you after such punishment. Directions: Now that you have mastered the combo, practice some different ways to finish off the combo. 1. Unthawed: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 2 - Up - 4 2. Zero Below: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 2 - 4 Excellent. Even the Lin Kuei warrior, Frost, was unable to complete that combo. But now you must progress to learn the kind of attack combination that makes Sub-Zero a formidable foe. Directions: You must combine all three of Sub-Zero's fighting styles into one long Style Branch combo. 1. Frosty: 1 - 2 - 4 - CS - 2 - CS Mission Complete! You earned 250 Jade Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 10: <<<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Excellent! You have learned much on this journey. You have honed your skills, as well as defeated your opponents. Now, one more task is at hand. Defeating another foe is inconsequential. A warrior will have many opponents in his lifetime, but there is only one demon that poses the greatest threat. To overcome one's own imperfections is the true way to inner peace. The ultimate opponent is one's own self. Your final test will be to face your dopplganger. Now you must win 3 out of 5 rounds to complete your training. Fight! Directions: Win 3 out of 5 rounds in a duel to the death. >Sub-Zero is a little difficult at first; once you get to know his moves he becomes quite easy. He will come out attacking with some cheap little pop-up Shotokan combos. Try and sidestep those, and counter with some of your own higher hitting Shotokan Branch combos. Also, don't use your weapon a lot, as it only leaves you open for bigger attacks from your former self. Just use some big and small Style Branch combos, and watch out for his cheap small juggle hits. Mission Complete! Congratulations! You have finished your training! This journey is complete. But the road to your destiny is long traveled, and there is always more to learn. You earned 300 Ruby Koins. -=-=- Kano: -=-=- >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 1: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Kano has a knack for survival. Not only has he survived massive attacks from his enemies, but his lack of loyalty allows him to change sides to suit his goals. This mercenary has betrayed many who have cllaed him ally. You must watch your back as you embark on this journey. Meaning 'mind form,' Xing Yi is a simple and practical style of kung-fu taht originated in the San-Shih province of China. This is a northern Chinese system, which relies on short basic fomrs for training. This art has long been associated with Ba Gua beginning in the early 1900's, and the two are often taught together. High atop a skyscraper, Kano faced off against Special Forces agent Sonya Blade during Shao Kahn's invasion of Earthrealm.

The Lifting High Kick pops Kano's opponent into the air long enough to attempt another attack. Directions: Now juggle Sonya in the bristols with 3 Lifting Kicks before she hits the ground. >Up - 4, Up - 4, and Up - 4 again to juggle Sonya in mid-air. Sonya was on her knees, defeated.

When the timer reaches 1, hit the SM Button to Reverse Sonya's attack 2 times. Perform this twice to complete the mission. Mission Complete! You earned 150 Ruby Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 2: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Like the Special Forces agent, Jackson Briggs, Kano is skilled in martial arts fighting techniques that specialize in throwing an opponent to the ground. The style Kano uses most is Aikido. Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed in the first half of the 20th century by the founder of the Black Dragon clan, Morihei Uyeshiba.

But the Shokan warrior, Sheeva, slew Motaro outside of Kano's cell. She was on her way to assassinate Shao Kahn as well when Kano offered his assistance if Sheeva let him out of his cage. Kano and Sheeva proceeded to the throne room of Shao Kahn. When they arrived at the door, Kano suggested that he go in first to distract the Emperor. Kano would give the signal for Sheeva to enter and slay the peroccupied Shao Kahn. But Kano betrayed Sheeva and informed Shao Kahn of her assassination plot. When Kano called her in, Shao Kahn thrust a sword through her chest from behind. Like the Red Dragon clan member, Mavado, Kano uses a double- weapon fighting style. Kano's Butterfly Knives have a 200-year history as part of the Shaolin system. Kano hates the SHaolin and uses the knives in his own way. Directions: Mavado is a right jam roll!

But the road to your destiny is long traveld, and these is always more to learn. You earned 300 Jade Koins. -=-=-=- Nitara: -=-=-=- >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 1: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: The vampire Nitara first manipulated Reptile into destroying the console on Cyrax's arm, which rendered the cyborg stranded in Outworld. She then manipulate Cyrax to retrieve a mysterious Orb hidden somewhere in that realm. Although Nitara relies on deception to attain her goals, her fighting styles are very direct, as you will soon discover. Nitara's first fighting style is the Leopard style, which is known for its cruel and cunning attacks. The Leopard style is one of the most vicious and crafty of the animal fighting styles. Not as strong as the Tiger style, but it is superior in its swiftness and jumping ability. The techniques simulate those of a Leopard, stressing the importance of free movement and quick actions. Directions: Like Nitara, Scorpion is a creature of the darkness. See how you fare against him as you practice her Leopard techniques. 1. Paw Strike: 1 2. Switching Paw: 2 3. Spinkick: 3 4. Front Kick: 4 5. Front Rising Paw: Down - 1 6. Soaring Paw: Back - 2 Directions: Very well done. You hit him like a bomb. Nitara's Leopard style also has a set of low attacks. She uses these moves to keep her opponents guessing. 1. Sweep Kick: Back - 3 2. Step Kick: Down - 3 3. Low Kick: Down - 4 4. Low Jab: Down - 2 A powerful Leopard attack that Nitara uses to put distance between herself and opponents is the Dual Claw Push. With one massive hit, Nitara can send her opponent sailing across the arena. Directions: Attack the Ninja Spectre Scorpion with the Dual Claw Push twice. 1. Up - 1 2. Up - 1 Well done. Next, you will practice a useful Leopard attack called the Lifting Strike, which allows Nitara to pop her opponent into the air long enough to execute another attack. Directions: Attack Scorpion with the Lifting Strike, and then juggle him in the air with 3 more Lifting Strikes before he hits the ground. 1. Back - 1, Back - 1, and Back - 1, to juggle Scorpion in the air. The Deadly Lifting Strike allows Nitara to pop an opponent into the air long enough to execute another attack. Directions: Try juggling Scorpion with the Lifting Strike, and while he is still in the air, attack him with the Dual Claw move. 1. Back - 1, Up - 1, while he is in the air, perform the Dual Claw to send him reeling across the screen. While in the Leopard style, Nitara can flap her wings to propel herself backward. This Escape maneuver allows her to put distance between herself and her opponent. Directions: Try to execute 3 successful Escapes, and get yourself out of harm's way. >Tap the SM Button 3 times to complete the mission. When Scorpion gets close, just Throw him, and Escape again. Mission Complete! You earned 150 Gold Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 2: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: You have fought well against Scorpion, and have learned much about the Leopard fighting style. But you must not stope there if you wish to complete this journey. You must learn another of Nitara's fighting styles. As you train in the fighting art of Fu Jow Pai, your opponent will be the creature Reptile. Nitara saw in Reptile a fool to be exploited. She deliberately led him away from his master Shao Kahn both to gain his trust, and to allow the sorcerers Quan Chi and Shang Tsung to perpetrate their assassination plot. Had Reptile been at the Emperor's side, they would never have succeeded. Fu Jow Pai was originally 'Hark Fu Moon,' or Black Tiger System. It was renamed by Grand Master Wong Bil Hong to 'Fu Jow Pai of Hoy Hong Temple.' The teachings of Black Tiger Claw Kung Fu has been passed down through the ages without any written documentation, making it difficult to compile its history. Directions: In order to master Nitara's next art of Fu Jow Pai, you must first learn the basic techniques. 1. Straight Claw: 1 2. Upward Paw: 2 3. Back Kick: 3 4. Roundhouse: 4 5. Tiger Strike: Back - 2 A useful Fu Jow Pai attack, called the Lifting Kick, allows Nitara to pop her opponent into the air long enough to execute another attack. Directions: Execute this devastating attack 3 times on Reptile. 1. Up - 4 2. Up - 4 3. Up - 4 Directions: Excellent. You are learning quickly. Let us move on to Fu Jow Pai's low attacks. Practice these low attacks on Reptile. 1. Tiger Scratch: Down - 2 2. Spinning Low Kick: Down - 3 3. Shin Kick: Back - 4 4. Low Toe Kick: Down - 4 5. Knee Strike: Back - 1 By channeling energy from a crystal necklace through her Fu Jow Pai style, Nitara is able to perform a Neijin. A Neijin allows Nitara to increase the power of her attacks for a limited period of time. Directions: Execute a Nejin, and strike Reptile with a powered-up attack. 1.Tap the SM Button and attack Reptile with the Lifting Kick (Up - 4) to make it easy, and complete the mission. Mission Complete! You earned 150 Sapphire Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 3: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Excellent! Your training in the art of Fu Jow Pai is complete! Let us move on to Nitara's weapon style, the Kama. The Kama is a farm implement used for rice harvesting. It was adopted as a weapon in China, Okinawa, and Japan when vampire invaders from Outworld were witnessed using similar weapons. In China and Japa, the Kama was often used in conjunction with a chain to encircle opponents. The Okinawans preferred to use two Kama together. The Kama is one of the five principle weapons of the Okinawa art of Kobudo Kobujutsu. Nitara uses this traditional vampire weapon to viciously tear open her opponents. You must learn her techniques to further balance your fighting skills. You will spar with Cyrax. Through careful manipulation, Nitara had coerced Reptile to destroy Cyrax's arm console, preventing the cyborg ninja from returningg to Earthrealm. Directions: Welcome Cyrax to Outworld with a few devastating Kama attacks. 1. DualOverhead Strike: 1 2. Hook Swipe Knockdown: 4 3. Low Cross Strike: 3 4. Charging Overhead: Back - 4 5. Scissor Swipe: Toward - 1 Excellent. Nitara was suspiciously present immediately after Cyrax defeated Reptile. She made him an offer to return him to his home realm, if he would aid her in retrieving a mystical object that bound her realm to the realm of Outworld. Directions: Now you must offer Cyrax some of Nitara's Kama low attacks. 1. Low Rising Swing: Down - 1 2. Backhand Swing: Down - 2 3. Low Sweeping Slice: Down - 3 Very well done. A useful Kama attack, called the Rising Swing, allows Nitara to strike an opponent while in mid-air. Directions: Attack Cyrax in mid-air with the Rising Swing attack 3 times to continue further. >Cyrax will continually back up and jump toward you. Time it just right so that you hit him while he is in the air. Complete this 3 times to complete the mission. Mission Complete! You earned 150 Jade Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 4: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Most impressive! You have mastered Nitara's three fighting styles. Now you must train in the dark arts of the vampire special attacks. The Vampire nation has existed for eons, and has traveled to many realms to feed on the blood of lesser species. Earthrealm has been an excellent source of food, but its sun emits a form of radiation that is quite harmful to vampires. As a result, vampires can only traverse to that realm for brief periods of time, and only to the hemisphere opposite the sun. One attack used often by vampires is the Blood Spit. By regurgitating previously consume blood, Nitara can hurl the bewitched liquid at her opponent from a distance. Directions: Practice the Blood Spit 3 times on the Outworld Master Bo' Rai Cho, a man who is no stranger to vomit. 1. Toward - Back - 2 2. Toward - Back - 2 3. Toward - Back - 2 Directions: That blood attack was quite obscene. The Bloody Spit is in your genes. Bo' Rai Cho attacks this bout. Spit 3 times 'fore time runs out. >Cho attacks you this time. Watch out for his high hitting combos. Dodge his attacks and Spit at him. Also, if you throw him, it creates distance allowing you to hit him with the Spit right away. Do this 3 times to complete the objective. Well done! But you have only begun to harness the true nature of a vampire. Vampires must consume the blood of others to survive. It has been this way since before recorded vampire history. If Nitara feels her life force diminish during a battle, she can rejuvenate her health by extracting a small amout of blood from her opponent, leaving him weaker. Directions: Master Bo' Rai Cho has much blood to spare. Practice Nitara's throw on him 2 times. 1. Toward - SM 2. Toward - SM Directions: Ineed you are most agile. Now try her throw 2 more times while Bo' Rai Cho is moving. >Bo' Rai Cho actually spars this time. Just dodge his moves, and hit the SM Button when he gets close 2 times to complete the mission. Mission Complete! You earned 175 Gold Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 5: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: That was very bloody! Wipe the crimson elixir from your face before you begin the next lesson. An effective special attack used by the vampire elite is the Unicorn Kick. Although the name sounds most frightening to a vampire, it is not so intimidating to others. The kick itself, however, is indeed something to fear. Directions: Practice Nitara's Unicorn Kick against Quan Chi 3 times before time runs out. 1. Back - Down - 4 2. Back - Down - 4 3. Back - Down - 4 Directions: You are indeed learning at a pace that kills. Use the Unicorn Kick against Quan Chi 3 times more. This time, the sorcerer will be well prepared. >Quan Chi is out to get you this time. Sidestep his moves and immediately counter with the Unicorn Kick. Complete this 3 times to complete the mission. Mission Complete! You earned 175 Jade Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 6: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Nitara's realm had been merged with Outworld by Shao Kahn ages ago, and the two worlds have been combined into one, forming a more powerful empire. Attack combinations work in much the same way. By utilizing combos in your fighting routines, you will increase the damage done to an opponent. Directions: Exercise these lethal Leopard combinations on the God of Thunder before time runs out. 1. Leopard at Dawn: 1 - 1 - Up - 1 2. Leopard at Rest: 1 - 1 - Back - 1 Excellent! Let us move on to some more intricate combos. 1. Snow Leopard: 1 - 1 - 1 - 2 - 4 2. Tree Leopard: 1 - 1 - 1 - 2 - Up - 1 Directions: You have done well.

It is a perfect strategy against opponents who block exessively. Perform the Bloodlust combo twice on Kano. Unleash your appetite for his destruction. 1. Bloodlust: 1 - 3 - 4 You earned 200 Jade Koins. >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 9: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: Now that you have mastered all of Nitra's styles and combos, it is time that your practiced combining attacks from different styles into one long combo. This type of attack is called a Style Branch combo. Directions: Scorpion will be your opponent during this lesson. This first style change combo starts in the Leopard style, and goes into the Fu Jow Pai style. 1. 1 - 1 - 1 - CS Directions: Good. Now execute that same combo one more time, but this time add one more hit between the eyes. 1. 1 - 1 - 1 - CS - 1 Your attacks were so powerful, it looked as though Scorpion might black out from the force of the blows. Directions: Next you will try 2 different ways to finish the previous combo. 1. Golden Leopard: 1 - 1 - 1 - CS - 1 - 2 2.

You have finished your training! This journey is complete. But the road to your destiny is long traveled, and there is always more to learn. You earned 300 Jade Koins. -=-=-=-= Drahmin: -=-=-=-= >>>>>>>>>>>> Mission - 1: <<<<<<<<<<<< Pre-Mission Introduction: An Oni is a demon from the Netherealm. They are foul creatures consumed with hatred and possessed with the desire to inflict pain and suffering upon others. Drahmin is no exception. With his right arm completely encased within an iron club, he eagerly crushes his opponents to dust. You must learn to use this rage to your advantage. The torturous environment of the 5th plane of the Netherealm can twist any being into a vicious monster. Such is the story of Drahmin, the Oni Tormentor. Once a mortal man, he was banished to this unforgiving realm and forgotten for ages. He is no longer the being he once was.

He is not easily distracted and lives to serve the will of his clan. This characteristic may be a side effect of his cybernectic heart. Without ambition, there can be no distraction. All that remains is duty. With a history of over 2000 years, Shuai Chiao is the oldest martial art in China. The Red Dragon clan have adopted it as a standard fighting style for entry-level recruits. Although Hsu Hao was already an accomplished martial artist, he was still required to learn Shuai Chiao once he joined there secretive organization. Mavado was in charge of training Hsu Hao.

He accepted her gift of the ancient Raptor weapon readily. Nitara's presence had a soothing effect on Reptile. She claimed to have information that would help his master Shao Kahn in the battle with Kitana's forces. Reptile knew he could trust her. He could sense no deceit. Nitara led Reptile across the plains of Outworld to the hidden location of Kitana's military encampment. If Reptile could get this information to Shao Kahn, the Emperor could send Kano's troops to smash them in a surprise attack. He had to get back to Shao Kahn immediately. Reptile can travel vast distances quickly by curling up and rolling. In his zeal to help his master, he zipped back and forth fervently, flipping Nitara into the air.

Directions: Reptile must face himself in Mortal Kombat. Defeat the imaginary manifestation of Reptile 3 out of 5 matches in a duel to the death. >Reptile is not as hard as he may seem at first.

You have mastered many fighting styles and beaten many opponents. But there is one opponent you still need to confront... It is one thing to defeat a foe that does not share your thoughts. It is a completely different situation when confronting a foe that can anticipate your every move. Your final test will be to face a mirror image of Cyrax. If you can win 3 out of 5 matches, you will have complete your training. Good Luck. Directions: Win 3 out of 5 matches in a duel to the death. >Cyrax uses his sword many a lot. Dodge or block those attacks, and follow up with some combos learned in Konquest Mission #9. Do not use his Detonators as they are harmless. Cyrax's Throw also blows, so stay away from that as well. Just use little combos on him to slowly but surely whittle away his health. Mission Complete! Congratulations! You have finished your training! This journey is complete. But the road to your destiny is long traveldd, and there is always more to learnd. You earned 300 Sapphire Koins.
