 AUTHOR'S NOTE
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 There are errors found in the instruction manual on many of the characters, but 
 all should be correct in this FAQ. This FAQ is part of a much bigger FAQ on the 
 entire MK series titled The Mortal Kombat Bible, which can be found at its 
 home, http://mk.ha-q.com, and is written and maintained by me. If you discover 
 anything not listed in this FAQ, feel free to submit it to me. You will receive 
 full credit and it would be greatly appreciated.

 This port is based on UMK3, which is similar to the SNES and Genesis port. Cage 
 and Raiden were never in the game to begin with (as some speculate) and Sheeva 
 was removed due to memory limitations. She was chosen because she was the least 
 popular character. This also applies for the SNES and Genesis ports of UMK3. 
 Thanks to all who have contributed and informed me of some mistakes. I haven't 
 had a lot of time to play test everything.

 KOMBATANTS - As anyone, simply keep jump kicking the opponent. And when I say jump
 kick, I mean press kick immediately after jumping at them. Timing is critical. Your
 fighter's foot will make contact with the opponent, which will halt your fighter
 in mid air, allowing you to repeat it as soon as they land. The opponent will just
 stand there and block, so keep repeating. Drain their life easily this way. Once
 you've mastered it, which isn't very hard, you can get Flawless Victories easily,
 even on Endurances.

 MOTARO - You can defeat Motaro with anyone by ducking and waiting for him to come
 near, then uppercut him. The first fireball he shoots immediately after the round
 starts will hit you, so you may want to jump back or forward as soon as the round
 starts, then duck, wait, uppercut. This will start a pattern. After uppercutting him,
 he will pause for a second and morph away from you. Then he will shoot a fireball,
 which will go over your head every time as long as you're ducking. As he starts to
 come near, he'll pause for a split second and continue his approach. After the pause,
 immediately uppercut. Keep repeating. Time will run out before you can totally drain
 his life, but a win is a win. This method may take more time to get down. It's all a
 matter of taming him into it.

 SHAO KAHN - Kahn is a bit more tricky, but the jump kicking method works well. If
 you're not careful, he can get out of it and pound on you. To get a Flawless, try
 ducking as soon as the round begins. Wait for his approach and uppercut him before or
 after anything he does (if you're lucky, he'll miss). As soon as he lands, jump next
 to him and begin the jump kick method as he's getting up.
