Mortal Kombat X will have another ’ality’ finisher

2 min read


Mortal Kombat X is a game about sunshine, hugs and fluffy bunnies. I am of course lying through my rotten teeth, as the game regularly features more violence than a Black Friday sale on TVs. The key gimmick here? Over the top finishing moves, gratuitously violent end-game attacks called Fatalities that feature unique, horrifying and memorable ways to put your opponent down for good. Mortal Kombat X will have plenty of them to use. As well as Brutalities, high-level combos with a deadly pay-off. But there’s one other –ality on the way as well.

That’s according to Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon, who is teasing the debut of a new finisher in an upcoming Kombat Kast on Twitch:

The two –alities that come to mind, are Babalities and Animalities. Babalities rocked up in Mortal Kombat 2, and then allowed you to turn your opponent into an infant, a howling and poopy creature which may be worse than the jagged teeth menace of a Tarkatan or any of Mortal Kombat’s other kombatants. Animalities took things a step further in Mortal Kombat 3, allowing players to morph into their spirit animal and use this new form to murder their opponent in a gory fashion.

Liu Kang became a dragon, Sheeva became a gigantic scorpion and Kitana became the killer rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The moves were also bloody hard to unlock. In order to set up an Animality, players had to fight their way into a third round, show mercy to their opponent to keep the fight going a little bit longer and then they could use the finisher.

You might also remember the Animality being featured in that timeless classic movie Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, a film so breathtakingly brilliant that I can’t finish the rest of this sentence with a straight face. As much as I’d like to see Animalities return in Mortal Kombat X, my money is on something new being shown tomorrow.

    My money is on Politician-ality and Lawyer-ality…the most vilest and cruelest of finishers in the Nether Realms and else where.

    I remember when MK3 had been out for a while and the rumour mill started with the fabled sexality. So many teenage boys trying to figure it out. Hahaha. Those were the days.

      hahaha that might fit in perfectly with my prediction of ” Politician-ality and Lawyer-ality” both have been know to screw one over.

    How about a Comicality? Make fun of your opponent in one way or another.

    I’ve got a feeling it’s gonna be a completely new ‘*****ality’.. and dont think anyone will guess it. Butnif inwanted to have a guess maybe a characters individual own finishing move that’s the same but can be performed by any fighter…a ‘personality’ perhaps.. who’s know. Exciting tho.
