But don’t get too excited. It’s against Reptile. Still, you’re going to want that trophy/chievo, aren’t you? Yes? Good! Then here’s how you can obtain it.
YouTuber JurassicRabbit came up with the following method to unlock the secret Reptile fight:
It’s easy enough, if you can’t view the video above due to your workplace having performed an IP-Blockality. First, you need to work your way through a Premier Living Tower in the game. Once you get to the sixth fight, you’ll need to finish at least one round with a flawless victory and a Fatality/Brutality. And then voila! You’ll have unlocked the Reptile fight, which features the former green ninja battling it out with his skills turned up to 11. Beyond that, there’s no other major secret. Just Reptile being a worthy opponent.
It’s not the first time that a Mortal Kombat game has had a secret fight or two waiting to be discovered. Mortal Kombat 9 had a secret Noob Saibot fight (teleporting oily bastard), while the original game also featured a secret fight with – you guessed it – Reptile. That particular fight was a nightmare to unlock, and revolved around getting a flawless victory without blocking on the infamous Bridge stage, as well as a Fatality. And he was an utter bastard to beat, as the scaly shinobi happened to have the moves of both Scorpion and Sub-Zero.
Still, I kind of dig this reference in Mortal Kombat X to the original Mortal Kombat game. It’s a toasty warm feeling of nostalgia, and not Scorpion’s flames for once.
