The Hit List – The five worst Mortal Kombat fatalities

Fatalities are to Mortal Kombat what a fat child is to a chocolate company: Absolutely pitiful without it. Having been around for two decades now, Mortal Kombat has carved a bloody niche in the gaming industry with solid kombat that is bolstered by gruesome finishing moves. Not all Mortal Kombat fatalities have been brilliant however. In fact, some of them have been downright daffy. And these five are the worst of the lot.

Of course, our opinions could be wrong when compared to yours. So if you feel we cocked up on this list, please tell us below which fatality you feel should not have been omitted. Now that all that is said and doneโ€ฆ

  1. Dude! The reason why Liu Kang’s Fatality was so lame in MK1 goes to his whole martial arts story and him being part of the White Lotus Society. Basically they don’t kill their opponents without honour and yadda yadda yadda. ๐Ÿ˜›

    My worst Fatalities? I’d say Jax’s footstomp and Stryker blowing up the world. =/

      Stryker blew up the world? Wasn’t it Cyborg Smoke from MK3?

        Oh man, you’re right! It was Smoke that blew up the world after dropping a hundred little bombs. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Not sure why you are trying to make sense of Rain’s fatality, by using a sandwich analogy. None of the fatalities make sense last of all Sub Zero.

    @Darryn_Bonthuys:disqus, if I may, you really need to check your audio levels in editing, your inserts are much louder than your spoken bits, the background music also needs to be a bit softer, lastly the sound effect tied to the numbers is WAY TOO LOUD. so yeah, just spend a bit more time Editing….also you should also invest in a Good microphone, I can tell you struggle with the mic on the Camera itself. just saying…

      I hear you on this. It irks me as well, and I’m going to sit down this weekend with some software to see if I can sort this out once and for all. I do honestly want to get some better audio equipment, but I’m a tad too broke to afford what I need right now.

        The Eternal plight of the game journalist…. I get it… But Also, you should be able to tweak with Software… Until you make enough Theoretical Dollars off youtube to buy ALL THE EQUIPMENT! ๐Ÿ™‚

        D, what microphone are you using, the camera’s built-in one? Try a separate mic, even a cheap Skype-type of thing or webcam one. You’re too far away for clear audio. ๐Ÿ™‚

          That’s the weird thing. I’m using a Rode videomic, but it’s giving me crap audio lately. I’m looking at using a Tascam D-40 in the future.

    Very nice list @Darryn_Bonthuys:disqus My worst fatality would have been of Motaro. They really could have done a bit better.

      His was lame because he didn’t actually have one made. They had to create one for the MK Trilogy with what assets they had.
