I. Introduction [int04]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello and welcome to my FAQ for Ultimate Mortal Kombat! In this guide you will
find detailed information for just about every aspect of the game. From move
lists to those pesky unlockables. I wrote this guide because at the time 
there were not any other guides posted for the game on GameFAQs, and I am a
huge fan of the Mortal Kombat series. So, the chance to write an entire guide
for a Mortal Kombat game that has not been covered yet is sort of like a dream
of mine...or at the very least, something I definitely wanted to accomplish
during my tenure as an FAQ writer. I hope this helps you, the reader, out.
Even if one person found this to be a little useful my efforts were not in
vain.

To give you a little background information about the game, Ultimate Mortal
Kombat is a DS port of the best-selling and almost universally known fighting
game title, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Much like every other earlier version of
Mortal Kombat, it was ported multiple times on several different systems from
the arcade. This is another "arcade pefect" port of the title - meaning if
it was not in the arcade version it is probably not included in this game.

This package also contains the addicting Puzzle Kombat game, which first made
it's debut some years back in Mortal Kombat: Deception along with Chess Kombat.
I have not played Deception in several years, so I am hesitant to say if the
version found in this game is a direct port of the one in Deception or if it is
it's own unique version - but hey, that is what future updates are for, right?
Heh. This game was released in North America in November 2007 and is notable
for having a profile/save system set up (This would not happen in the series
until Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance if memory serves correctly) as well as
online play via Nintendo's Wi-Fi system. With that being said, it is on to the
FAQ itself!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
II. Story [st08]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You have been chosen to represent Earth in Mortal Kombat. Be warned. Although
your souls are protected against Shao Kahn's evil; your lives are not. I cannot
interfere any longer as your Earth is now ruled by the Outworld Gods. These are
the words of Raiden.

For centuries Earth has used Mortal Kombat to defend itself against the
Outworld's Emperor, Shao Kahn. But, Kahn becomes frustrated by failed attempts
at taking Earth through tournament battle. He enacts a plan which began
10,000 years ago.

During this time Kahn had a queen. Her name was Sindel and her young death was
unexpected. Kahn's shadow priests, lead by Shang Tsung, make it so that Sindel
's spirit would someday be reborn - Not on the Outworld but Earth Realm itself.

This unholy act gives Shao Kahn the power to step through the dimensional gates
and reclaim his queen. Thus enabling him to finally seize the Earth Realm.

Upon breaching the portal into Earth, Shao Kahn slowly transforms the planet
into a part of the Outworld itself.

Kahn strips the Earth of all human life: claiming every soul as his own.

But there are souls which Kahn cannot take. These souls belong to the warriors
chosen to represent Earth in a new Mortal Kombat.

The remaining humans are scattered throughout the planet. Shao Kahn sends an
army of fierce Outworld warriors to find and eliminate them.

After the first tournament Sonya Blade turned up missing. Jax then embarked on
a rescue mission into the Outworld. He found Sonya being held captive with her
nemesis Kano. In freeing Sonya, Jax also frees Kano. Kano then uses the chance
to escape arrest.

The ultimate advancement in Lin Kuei technology comes with the creation of the
first cyber-assassin. They begin converting their human ninjas into soulless
machines. But Sub-Zero refuses to take part and is marked for death by his own
clan.

After winning the first Mortal Kombat and escaping from the Outworld, Liu Kang
looks to the future. He begins training a new generation of shaolin alongside
Kung Lao. But nothing could prepare them for the unexpected Outworld invasion.

IV. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 Kombatant Moves List [umk16]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following is just about everything and anything you want to know about
the Kombatants in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. It is worth mentioning that there
are in fact Stage Fatalities present in this game, they are just not listed
with the other moves you see on the screen - go figure. This section will
provide biographies as well as an extensive listing of their special and
finishing moves.

Close means that you must be right next to your opponent, Half Screen means
that you have to be about halfway of the screen apart from them, Full screen
means that you must be on the complete opposite side of the screen as them,
Sweep means close, just enough to trip them up. And naturally, Outside Sweep
is referring to how you have to be just out of the range to trip them up.

V. Puzzle Kombat [pzz23]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First introduced in the smash-hit Mortal Kombat: Deception, Puzzle Kombat is
Mortal Kombat's version of the popular game Tetris...except with a few twists,
Mortal Kombat style!

The objective is to keep the Blocks below the red Kaution Banner. The banner
is located at the top of the puzzle. The user that has Puzzle Pieces above the
banner loses the round.

A Puzzle Piece consists of two objects, comprised of Blocks, Breakers and Bombs
. Blocks and Breakers can be one of four colors. Colors do vary, so keep your
attention on the "Next" box so you know what to expect. Blocks are used as the
building blocks (crappy pun) for Puzzle Kombat. Blocks are to be placed at the
bottom of the screen and can be positioned however you like. Blocks can be
paired up with other Blocks, Breakers, or Bombs.

Breakers: Colored dragon symbols that are used to break blocks. Simply match
up breakers up with the appropriate colored block to break them. When you
break apart blocks the number of broken blocks is transferred over to your
opponent's side. So if you pull off a wicked combo that breaks 40 blocks, your
foe will suddenly find themselves with 40 extra blocks to deal with.

Bombs: Bombs are used to clear all Blocks of one color. This is done by
dropping the Bomb on the desired color that you want to break. You get a Bomb
Bonus when a Bomb is not dropped on a Block or Breaker but on the bottom of a
puzzle. The Bomb Bonus boosts your Super Meter.

Super Meter: As you break blocks your Super Meter will gradually fill up. Once
the meter is full press the Y button to use your fighter's special move. Each
fighter has their own distinct special move that has some effect on the game.
You must use your Special within twenty (20) seconds of it filling up. They
cannot be stored for later use, and once it's gone (either you use it or time
expires before you can use it) your Super Meter will be empty and you will
have to fill it back up again.


Secret Puzzle Kombat Kombatants:
--------------------------------

Raiden - Achieve a 5X Combo break in any round
Kenshi - Win any round of a Puzzle Kombat match against the computer with
multiple Combos
Bo Rai Cho - Score over 19000 in any round
Jade - Beat Puzzle Kombat (CPU only) without using a continue
Mileena - Win a round in under one minute

- Most of that was loosely based on what you find in the game's instruction
booklet.

Some tips...

- Try and group as many like colored blocks as possible, over a large chain.
If executed correctly you will not only break a large amount, but you will also
open up the possibility for multiple combos in one string, which will seriously
mess up your opponent's chi

- Special moves should be used with a purpose. The well-timed Freeze or Double
Bomb could dramatically swing the direction of the fight.

- You are told how many blocks your opponent is about to drop on you, in the
Kaution Banner's display. This gives you a brief few moments to plan your next
few moves.

VI. Arcade Mode [arc42]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The main single player mode of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. There are four tiers
in total to select from - Novice, Warrior, Master, Master (pretty original eh?)
. They range in difficulty from easiest to most difficult, with each one being
more difficult than the last - as well as longer than the last. Thankfully
you get an unlimited amount of credits ("Free Play" as it is called) so you
cannot get a Game Over unless you do so deliberately. In each Destiny tier
you will face an Endurance match (sometimes two) as well as Motaro, and to end
things, Shao Kahn himself.

After each Kombatant you defeat, you will face another one. The battles get
tougher as you move higher up on the tier, especially so if you continue on a
streak of victories. 


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
VII. Nintendo Wi-Fi [ni108]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A big feature of Ultimate Mortal Kombat is the ability to take your game online
via Nintendo's Wi-Fi network. You can play both Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and
Puzzle Kombat either with someone in the same room as you, in the same country
as you, or even halfway across the world from you!


DS Download Play:
-----------------

If you want to play with someone else but only one of you has a copy of the
game, no problem! Choose "Local Wireless" from the Main Menu, and select
"DS Download Play" to connect to another Nintendo DS.

To connect, the player without a Game Card must select the DS Download Play
option on their DS system. The two DS systems will connect, and you will be
able to play the game, albeit not without some restrictions.


Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection:
--------------------------

Nintendo WFC Match: Allows you to connect to a wireless network to play against
other people around the world. For both Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 as well as
Puzzle Kombat.

yours. As your Rating increases, you'll find yourself playing better players
who match your level of skill.

a match, regardless if whether or not they are your Friend.

Friends Roster: Anyone you have exchanged Friend Codes with will be listed
here. This makes it incredibly easy to set up games with people your friends.

Friend Code: Your Friend Code may be viewed on the top screen by selecting
"My Info" on the Friend Roster. This 12 digit number is the same all three
different profiles use per Game Card. Exchanging Friend Codes is the only way
to add players to your Friend Roster.

Aside from the unlockable characters you can use in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
and Puzzle Kombat, everything else is obtained by completing the game's main
single player Arcade mode. Most of Kahn's Lost Treasures cannot be selected
unless you complete more difficult Destiny tiers - the second Master one will
grant you access to every Treasure, with every other one offering less and less 
options. You can unlock a character's arcade ending from completing any tier,
so there's no need to feel too ashamed of yourself if you only run through the
Novice tier, heh.

IX. Frequently Asked Questions [faq4]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following is a fairly comprehensive listing of questions and answers
new players may have regarding Ultimate Mortal Kombat. Even seasoned veterans
may find this information to be useful.

Q: Where are Noob Saibot and Rain, why can't I play as them?
A: In the original arcade version of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 Rain and Noob
Saibot were not selectable. In later ports of the game, the Super Nintendo and
Genesis I believe, they were added.

Q: Are Brutalities present in this game?
A: No, again, because they were added in later ports of the game and not
included in the original arcade version.

Q: The Fatalities don't work for me, what gives?
A: Chances are you're not at the proper distance, make sure of that first.
Also, some moves require you to press Up. To avoid jumping up simply hold the
Block button while putting these combinations in. Release it at the right time
to ensure the Fatality combination registers properly.

Q: How do I select a Kombatant randomly?
A: Player 1 must highlight Kitana at the "Select Your Fighter" screen and press
Up+Start. If you're Player 2, do the same thing, except instead of Kitana you
have to highlight Scorpion.

Q: Why can't I do an Animality?
A: Firstly, make absolutely sure you perform a Mercy. In order to pull off a
Mercy you must be in the third round of a fight. Then when it is time to deal
the finishing blow to your opponent ("FINISH HIM/HER!") make sure you are
outside sweeping distance, about halfway across, press and hold the Run button
and while you are holding Run press Down three times, then release the Run
button. This should give your opponent a little more health. And thus, you can
perform an Animality without much trouble...assuming you imput the proper
button sequence.

Q: How can I put in the Kombat Kodes to unlock Mileena, Ermac and Classic
Sub-Zero?
A: Lose any single player arcade match and let the timer run down to zero.
You will be prompted to put in one of three Kombat Kodes. You can only put
in one at a time.

Q: What's that little green meter under my health bar? And why does it turn
red?
A: That would be the Run Bar, it is there to make sure you don't continuously
run or pull off an unbroken chain of combination attacks.
