I.  OVERALL AND CHARACTER PLOT
------------------------------

   "Thousands of years ago in a battle with the fallen elder god known as
Shinnok, I was responsible for the death of an entire civilization. To rid
all realms of Shinnok's menace I waged a war that plunged the earth into
centuries of darkness and banished Shinnok to a place called the
Netherealm.
Now after Shao Kahn's defeat at the hands of Earth's warriors, Shinnok has
managed to escape his confines of the Netherealm. The war is now being
fought once again, and this time it can be won by mortals." - Raiden

III. SPECIAL POINTS OF INTEREST
-------------------------------


TOWERS
------


     After selecting you character on a One-Player game, you see five
towers, representing five levels of difficulty on you quest to defeat
Shinnok.  They are:  NOVICE, BEGINNER, WARRIOR, MASTER, MASTER II.  Novice
gives you six opponents, Beginner gives you seven, and the rest give you
eight.



STAGES
------

The Rain Stage

    The combatants are atop a mountain during a rainstorm; heavily
raining, with the occasional lightning blast in the sky.  At some
times a face will appear in the sky, possibly an elder god watching
on.

The Snake Stage

    Evil room with an large reptilian eye in the center.  On each side
is a large skull with a person chained inside.

The Dojo

     As the name says, you're in a martial arts training room, with
banners and writing.  It's raining outside.

The Living Forest

     Just like MK2, you fight in a forest where the trees have faces.
Occasionally, the faces growl.  From what I've heard, those faces, just
like MK2, is the face of Lead Programmer Ed Boon.

The Prison

     You are in a large octangular steel room with a huge spinning fan in
the center.  Two floating lights illuminate the combatants and will follow
them all around the room.
STAGE FATALITY:  The victor will grab his opponent by one arm and one leg
and begin to spin them around.  When they reach the right velocity, they
throw them into the fan, where the opponent is sliced into pieces; his
head flying out and hitting the game screen.

Goro's Lair

     By far the most known fighting area.  Grey dungeon with four entrances
and skeletons hanging from the walls.  Yellow eyes adorn the entrances.
This in Mortal Kombat One is where you would fight Goro.  Huge boulders
adorn the floor.
STAGE FATALITY:  The victor will uppercut their opponent high in the air
where they are impaled on spikes on the ceiling.  Holding down on both
joysticks will cause the opponent to fall off.

The Well

     This is believed to be Scorpion's stage.  You fight right next to a
huge pit of flames.  Severed heads adorn the floor.

The Elder Gods

     Blue room with huge blue faces watching you fight.  Sometimes, the
faces change expression(ie, shock, smiling, etc,)

The Tomb

     This is a purple laidened room with a skull acting as a window in the
background.  A motionless body is at one end, covered by a cloth.  Coffins
around the room on ledges.



SELECT SCREEN
-------------

     At the bottom of the select screen, we see three buttons.

Random
------

     Clicking on this button will have the game automatically
choose your player.

Group
-----

     You go through the entire roster, fighting each opponent.

Hidden
------

     Clicking on this button will make your select square disappear, making
your opponent unable to see which character you are choosing.


Start Button
------------

     on a one player game, after selecting a tower to play, if you press
your start button, the tower will rotate, giving you a different set of
opponents to face.



CHARACTER COLOR CHANGES
-----------------------

   In MK4, you now have a choice on what your character will wear.  Midway
finally got wise and put different colored outfits for the characters.
To change the outfit, highlight your character on the selection screen,
press start and the three buttons that correspond with that particular
character.  The Selection square will change to a yin/yang.  Then select
the character.

        Kai:  Start(High Punch + Block + Low Kick)
     Raiden:  Start(Low Punch + Block + High Kick)
    Shinnok:  Start(High Punch + Block + Low Punch)
   Liu Kang:  Start(High Kick + Block + Low Kick)
    Reptile:  Start(Low Punch + Block + Low Kick)
   Scorpion:  Start(High Punch + High Kick + Block)
        Jax:  Start(Run + Low Punch + Block)
      Reiko:  Start(Run + High Punch + Low Kick)
Johnny Cage:  Start(Run + Low Punch + Low Kick)
      Jarek:  Start(High Kick + High Punch + Run)
      Tanya:  Start(High Kick + Low Kick + High Punch)
      Fujin:  Start(Low Punch + High Punch + High Kick)
   Sub-Zero:  Start(Run + Block + High Punch)
   Quan Chi:  Start(High Punch + Run + High Kick)
      Sonya:  Start(Run + High Punch + Low Kick)


Hidden Characters
-----------------

Meat
----

  Who is Meat?  Well, Meat is a skinned, living skeleton, hence
the sickening name.  It's a lenghty way to play as him.  Keep
selecting 'Group mode' in a 2 player game until ou complete all
15 numbers.  After completing 'Group Mode', select any character.
The character will have his normal movesm, but will be a skinned
skeleton, 'Meat'.



IV.  WEAPONS
------------

     In Mortal Kombat 2, we were introduced to Friendships and
Babalities (and frankly I wish we weren't).  In Mortal Kombat 3, we were
introduced to the 'Run' button (and frankly I wish we weren't).  Now, in
Mortal Kombat 4, we are introduced to the ability to use weapons.  Each
character starts with their own weapon.  Over the course of the game, the
character can lose his weapon and subsequently use a different weapon.

VII.  ENDING STORIES
--------------------

  Well, the masses have seen the endings.  Evidentially, they are now
spoken by the characters themselves; some even play out scenarios!
So, it looks like this time around the endings will be in script
format.  So this is what I'll be needing from you:  What the picture
looks like, any actions that take place, and most importantly: the
dialog that the characters say verbatim.  I managed to get three endings
in that format.  I just need the words the characters say.  Parts
where there should be words are replaced by four periods (....)


Kai
---

Raiden: You fought well, Kai.  You are now a true Shaolin Warrior.

Kai: Thanks, Raiden.  But I am not interested in becoming a Shaolin Warrior
     anymore.  I've got too many of my own problems to deal with.

Raiden: What will you do next?

Kai: I don't know... Wander the earth, search for my soul.  That kind of
     thing...

[Raiden gives Kai his Lightning Staff.]

Raiden: Well, perhaps you could use this on your journey.

Kai: Your Lightning Staff?

Raiden: It holds the power of Thunder and Lightning.  Wield it wisely, for
        it can show you the way to immortality.

Kai: Thank you, Raiden.  I will not fail.


Raiden
------

Elder God:  Raiden, for many ages you have protected the Earth Realm from
              the forces of evil. You have earned your place among us.
                Before your dissention into the Patheon of elder Gods, you
                must choose your sucessor to protect your Earth.

Raiden:  With the aid of Earth's mortals, I have once again managed to
           defeat Shinnok and his minions.  I choose Fujin.  He will guide
           the mortals of Earth as they move into the next millenium.


Shinnok
-------


[Scene : The Tomb.  Shinnok stands staring at Raiden, who is floating
helplessly in the air]

Shinnok:  For millions of years, I suffered in the bowels of the
          Netherealm.  You, Thunder God, are responsible for my
            suffering.  Now the pitious mortals of Earth will pay
            for my grievance.

Raiden:   You turned against your fellow Elder Gods.  You betrayed your
            title.  You deserve much worse.

Shinnok:  But it's too late, Raiden.  I win!  With the other Elder Gods
            out of the way, I will take my rightful place as ruler of all
            eternity.  I can already feel the power surging from within!

Raiden:   You're mad!

Shinnok:  Farewell, Thunder God! [Laughs]

[Shinnok raises his hands.  Lightning comes out and strikes Raiden.  After
a while, Raiden explodes into pieces.]



Liu Kang
--------

Liu Kang: The war is over.  I once again defended my title as Champion of
          Mortal Kombat, and defended the realm of earth.  I have failed to
          save the realm of Edenia.  In doing so, I have also lost Kitana
          forever.

[Kitana appears via a portal.]

Liu Kang: Kitana?

Kitana: Yes, Liu Kang.  It is I.

Liu Kang: I thought you were gonna...

Kitana: With Shinnok's destruction, you have not only saved the earth, but
        you have saved my own realm.  For that, I can never repay you.

Liu Kang: Knowing you survived is all I need.

Kitana: As heir to the throne of my realm, I offer you the chance to rule
        at my side, as King of Edenia, forever.

Liu Kang: I cannot accept your offer.  I belong here on earth as Champion
          of Mortal Kombat.

Kitana: Then, I wish you good luck, Liu Kang, on all your journeys.

Liu Kang: Goodbye, Princess Kitana.


Reptile
-------

[SCENE:  The Snake Stage.  WIDE SHOT of Reptile and Quan Chi.  Reptile
bows to Quan Chi and gets down on one knee in servitude.  As the
conversation progresses the camera pand around the two in a circle.]

Reptile:  Quan Chi, I have served our Lord Shinnok well in the
destruction of Earth warriors.

Quan Chi:  Yes, we are most appreciative of all your efforts.

Reptile:  Now I wish to return in time to my home world before it was
          destroyed at the hands of Shao Kahn.  As the new ruler supreme
          of all reality, Shinnok alone has the power to grant my request.

Quan Chi:   You dare make such a perpetuous request of your lord and
            master?

Reptile:  Is it a simple request for one of such great power.

Quan Chi:  It is also not worth his attention.

[Reptile stands up and yells at Quan Chi in defiance]

Reptile:  I demand it!  If it were not for warriors such as myself
          his attack against Raiden's forces would have failed!

Quan Chi:  Perhaps you should convey your feelings to Shinnok yourself!

[MEDIUM SHOT : Reptile]

Reptile:  What?

[Shinnok teleports in front of Reptile and grabs him by the throat,
lifting him off the ground]

Shinnok:  Infidel!  You are in no position to demand anything!  I could
kill you with a mere thought!

Reptile:  [choking] But, we had a deal!

[Camera pans out to LONG RANGE SHOT : Shinnok and Reptile.]

Shinnok:  A deal?  I am not a God of my word, Reptile!  All deals are off!

[Shinnok releases a blast of energy.  Reptile explodes into pieces.]


Scorpion
--------

[Scorpion stands over Sub-Zero's fallen body]

Scorpion: I deafeated you, Sub-Zero.  I have avenged the death of my
          family and clan.  Now my soul can finally rest.

Sub-Zero: Your soul will never rest, Scorpion.  The Lin Kuei may have
          been responsible for your murder, but your family's true killer
          still remains free.

Scorpion: If you are not the murderer, then who is?

[Quan Chi appears.]

Quan Chi: I am the one you seek.  To defeat my nemesis, Sub-Zero, I needed
          the power of a specter.  You've done my bidding well, Scorpion.
          But now I must return you to the Netherealm.

[Quan Chi opens a portal into the Netherealm.]

Scorpion: NEVER!

[Scorpion grabs Quan Chi and they both are engulfed in the portal.  Shot of
Scorpions Lair in UMK3.  Quan Chi looks around and then stares at the
screen.]

Quan Chi: NO!!!

        to the Special Forces!  The Black Dragon lives on!

[Jarek begins walking toward Sonya, who in turn begins backing away from
him.  WIDE SHOT AND CRESENDO:  They are atop a high cliff.  Sonya has
backed to the edge.]

Sonya:  The Black Dragon died with Kano.  You're the last one, Jarek.

Jarek:  NEVER!

[Jarek dives toward Sonya.  Sonya backs out of the way and Jarek goes over
the cliff.  Sonya looks over, then turns away.  She takes out her radio.]

Sonya:  Come in, Major Briggs.  This is Lieutenant Sonya Blade...

[From the edge of the cliff, Jarek is seen climbing up.  He grabs Sonya
by the leg and tosses her over the cliff]

[Shot of the radio lying on the ground]

Jax's Voice:  (From the radio)  Sonya?  This is Major Briggs!  Come in.
Sonya, this is Jax!  Are you there?

[Jarek's foot steps on the radio.  Silence.  Jarek laughs to himself and
walks on]

Jax:  Going somewhere, Jarek?

[WIDE SHOT:  Jarek has walked into Jax, who grabs Jarek by the neck]

Jarek:  JAX!  But I thought you were..

Jax:  Thought I was what?  Dead?  Like my partner you just dropped off
      the cliff?

[Jax walks back to the edge and holds Jarek over it]

[OVERHEAD SHOT:  Jax holding Jarek over the cliff]

Jarek:  I...I'm sorry, Jax!  Wait!  Don't drop me!

Jax:  Wait?

Jarek:  I promise...

Jax:  Too late, Jarek!

Jarek:  You can't drop me!  You have to uphold the law!  You have to
        arrest me!  Wait!  Wait!  This is brutality!  You can't do it!

get real here, huh?  When am I going to get some real competition?

[The audience begins booing]

Arnold!  Hey, cut it out!



Jarek
-----

Tanya
-----

[Scene:  In a underground passage.  Tanya is talking to Liu Kang]

Tanya: Follow me, Liu Kang.  Raiden has asked that I lead you to him.

Liu Kang: What about the others?

Tanya: He has something special planned for them.

Liu Kang: Tanya, what's going on?

Tanya: [laughs] I don't know what Kitana saw in you.  Can't you see, Liu
       Kang?  This is a trap!
Liu Kang: What?!

[Liu Kang turns as a wall opens.  We see Quan Chi and Shinnok in the room
that opens.  Shinnok is hovering in the air.]

Quan Chi: Welcome, Shaolin Warrior.  Your thunder god is beaten, earth's
          warriors destroyed.  We obliterated the forces of light.  Do you
          wish to beg the mercy of your new master, the lord Shinnok?

          to my duties as Earth's god of wind.

Face:   You have served your elders well, Fujin.  But we have a new
          mission for you.

Fujin:  Raiden?

Raiden:  Our battle with Shinnok's forces is over.  I must move on
           to my new position as an Elder God.  And you, Fujin, you
           must take my former position as protector of Earth.

Fujin:  Raiden, it will be my honor to succeed you.

Raiden:  Take special care of the mortals of Earth, they are a great people but
           have the ability to self destruct.  Be patient, and offer
           your wisdom as guidance.

Fujin:  Farewell, Thunder God.  I will not fail you.

Raiden:  That is why I picked you.

[PANNING CLOSE UP SHOT:  Quan Chi looking down at Sub-Zero.
Scorpion's fallen body is in the background.]

for Shinnok.

           life forces of all that live, but I shall spare you.

Quan Chi:  If it weren't for me, you will still be a tortured soul
            rotting in the pits of the Netherealm.

[Medium shot of Quan Chi]

Quan Chi:  I do more than question you, Shinnok.  I challenge you!

[Wide shot of both Quan Chi and Shinnok]

Shinnok:  Then you shall die!

[Shinnok mutters something as he throws a pink magic missile at
 Quan Chi.  The magic missile touches Quan Chi but fizzles without
 harming him.]

Shinnok:  How can this be?

[Quan Chi holds up Shinnok's amulet.  Camers shot circles around Quan Chi
until Shinnok is in view.]

Quan Chi:  I am in possession of your once sacred amulet.  Years
             ago I delivered to you an exact duplicate, while I retained
             the original.  I even fooled Raiden.  Now, I am ruler supreme
             and you, Elder God, are finished!

Shinnok:  Noooo!!

[Quan Chi uses the amulet to shoot a green missile at Shinnok.
 It touches Shinnok and he explodes.]



Sonya
-----

[Follow Jax's story up to where Jarek falls over the cliff.  Sonya takes
out her radio.]

Sonya: Come in, Major Briggs.  This is Lt. Sonya Blade, over.

Jax's voice: Sonya, glad to hear you're alive.

Sonya: You actually sound happy to hear from me, Jax.  Things got boring?

Jax's voice: Not since you followed Liu Kang into the Netherealm.

Sonya: Well it's over now, I'm returning to base.  10-4, Jax.

E. NEW CHARACTERS
-----------------

Goro
----

The half human dragon stood as Shang Tsung's protector in the first
tournament.  Goro took the Mortal Kombat title from the original Kung Lao,
only to have it won from him nine generations later by Lao's ancestor, Liu
Kang.  Seeking revenge, the Shokan Prince has returned from the Outworld to
crush Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat.


Breaker Move: Goro holds the opponent with his upper arms and breaks
                  their back with his lower arms.
Throw       : Chest Pound


Fireball      : Forward - Back - High Punch
Tele-Stomp    : Forward - Forward - Back - High Kick
Forward Stomp : Unknown
Ground Shaker : Back - Forward - Down - Down - High Kick
Two Hand Swipe: Forward - Forward - High Punch
Super Uppercut: Down - Down - High Punch
Lunge Kick    : Back - Back - High Kick
Overhand Hit  : Unknown
Taunt         : Unknown

(NOTE:  Because Goro has no fatalities, his strength and move arsenal is
increased.  Also, because of his size, you cannot perform an Air Throw on
him.)


Noob Saibot
-----------


Breaker Move:  Noob Saibot grabs the opponent's head and slams it into
                   his knee.
Throw       :  Leg Throw

Weapon is a scythe

Ready Weapon: Forward - Forward - High Kick
Fireball    : Down - Forward - Low Punch (Can be done in midair)
Air Throw   : Block in midair (Close range)
Teleport    : Down - Up


Fatality #1 :  Unknown
                (Noob Saibot grabs his opponent by the waist and twists,
                 snapping their spine.  He then rips their upper torso
                 off and throws it down.  Stand close.)
Fatality #2 :  Unknown
                (Noob Saibot raises his arms and snow and ice begin to form
                 around his hands.  He freezes the opponent, then slides over
                 and shatters them with one punch.  Stand out of sweep range.)

NOTE:  Noob's fatalities in the PC version are the same as Reiko's.  Plus
in a recent IRC chat, Ed Boon stated there is no way to perform Noob's
fatalities without using the One-Button Fatality Cheat

Goro's Lair :  Forward - Down - Forward - High Kick
The Prison  :  Down - Back - Back - High Kick

Kombos

1. Jumping in High Punch - High Kick - Down + High Punch - Fireball(23%)
2. High Punch - High Kick - Down + High Punch - Fireball(16%)


F. KITANA
---------


  Let me explain...no there is too much, let me sum up.  Kitana was originally
going ot be part of MK4, but Midway decided on Tanya instead.  Midway did
leave her coding and data in due to the fact that they needed it for Liu Kang's
ending.  The result is an unfinished character that, through the wonders of
programming, can be used.

N64:  If you have a Gameshark enter this code at the beginning: 800fe2930010
Unfortunately, this will wonly work until you go to the Choose Your Destiny
screen, as Kitana has to character icon, so N64 will crash.

PSX:  The only difference is that Kitana's skin coding (IE her body) is not
programmed.  Her moves ARE in there, it's just you will be using a
different character.

Depending which player side you want to use Kitana's moves, type in the
following gameshark codes(You do need ALL THREE)

"P1 Plays as Kitana"
800AAC24 0006
800BFD6C 0010
800BFE54 0010

"P2 Plays as Kitana"
800AAC28 0006
800BFD6C 0010
800BFE54 0010

PC:  There are some nice gentlemen that created a Trainer (Cheat) program
that not only will give you some nifty tricks to play with, but will also
let you play as Kitana.  The program is called the Super Trainer, and it
is created by The Russian Way of Mortal Kombat (http://start.at/dmkf.mksite).
The Super Trainer Page is http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/Realm/8854.


Moves and Fatalities
--------------------

Weapon is a Ghurka Knife(PC) or a Fan(N64)

Breaker Move  :  Kitana does a handstand on the opponents shoulders.
                     She then twists their head.
Throw         :  German Suplex

Draw Weapon   :  Forward - Forward - High Kick
Fireball      :  Forward - Down - Low Punch (Can be done in air)
                        (Note:  Down - Forward - Low Punch for PC)
Sqr Wave Punch:  Forward - Back - High Punch

Fatality #1   :  Forward - Back - Down - Down - High Kick
                        (Kitana grabs her opponent by the waist and twists,
                         snapping their spine.  She then rips their upper torso
                       off and throws it down.  Stand close.)
Fatality #2   :  Up - Down - Down - Up - High Kick
                        (Kitana does a handstand and gerbs her opponent with
                         her legs.  She then splits the opponent in half.
                         Stand outside sweep distance.)
Goro's Lair   :  Down - Forward - Down - Forward - High Kick
The Prison    :  Down - Down - Back - Back - High Kick

NOTE:  It seems only the Stage Fatalities work on the PC version.  The
only way to perform her normal fatalities is with the One-Button
Fatality Cheat



G. NEW KOMBAT KODES
-------------------

Kode 27 : Kombat Zone: Ice Pit - 313-313
Kode XX : Big Heads - 321-321


H. PC-CDROM KEYBOARD FRIENDLY FATALITIES
----------------------------------------


  As PC owners know(or may not know but will if they keep reading), the IBM
keyboard can only allow three buttons to be pressed without conflict.  So
what happens if you want to do Reptile's Fatality which uses FIVE?  Eurocom
gives us the answer:  Keyboard Friendly Fatalities.  The movements of some
of the multi-button fatalities will stay the same, but you don't have to
press so many buttons.

Press F2 and choose GAMEPLAY.  In there is the section FATALITIES.  Change it
to KEYB FRIENDLY.

Keyboard Friendly Fatalaties:
(Distances are still the same)

Liu Kang's Dragon   : Forward - Forward - Forward - Down - Block
Reptile's Face Chew : Up
Reiko's Torso Kick  : Forward - Down - Forward - Block
Tanya's Death Kiss  : Down - Down - Up - Down - Block
Sub-Zero's Spine Rip: Forward - Back - Forward - Down - High Punch
                                (Can substitute High Punch for Block or Run)

aren't any rumors around that haven't been proven false, not counting
