        of the fatalities on this list have been confirmed to work,
        so there should be no problem doing them. Everytime a fatality
        is discovered, it will be listed here. Enjoy!



================================================================
II. KEY:
What each of the button sequences means.
Updated: January 22nd
================================================================

U = Up              HP = High Punch                 HK = High Kick
F = Forward                           BLK = Block
D = Down            LP = Low Punch                  LK = Low Kick
B = Back
               RUN = Run

"," = then
"+" = and
"()" = Requirements for a move:
       (distance, movements within movements, ect.)

DIFFICULTY KEY: ------------------------------------------------

*    = An easy move to perform. Doesn't contain any "Back" or "Up"
       motions, nor does it have any multiple simultaneous button
       presses. The novices won't have problems with these moves.

**   = These moves are still easy, but they often require a little
       more skill, as they may require you to press "Block" during
       the fatality, be it because of a "Back" motion, or "Up" motion.

***  = These fatalities take quite a bit of skill, and the novices will
       have a hard time with them. Often times these fatalities have
       multiple simultaneous button presses.

**** = These fatalities are the hardest in the game. They often require
       you to press many buttons at one time, and require to use "Block"
       during the fatality, as well. The novices, and sometimes even the
       experts may have a hard time with these fatalities.

EXAMPLES: ------------------------------------------------------

* "B, D, F, HP (Sweep)" means to do the motion Back, Down,
  Forward, then hit the button High Punch. This move must
  be done at "Sweep Distance", or one foot sweep away from
  your opponent. Other distances include but are not limited
  to:

1) "Close"........... Make sure you're standing as close to the opponent
                      as possible.
2) "1 Step Away"..... Get as close to your opponent as possible,
                      then tap the joystick back once to get one
                      step away from him/her.
3) "Sweep"........... Sweep Distance, or 1 full foot sweep away from your
                      opponent. A good way to test this
                      is to make your last move a Breaker move (F+LK).
                      These moves will almost always put
                      you in the perfect position.
4) "Half Screen"..... Make sure that 1/2 of the screen is between you
                      and your opponent. "Just Outside Sweep" could also
                      be considered "Half Screen".
5) "Full Screen"..... Make sure that you and your opponent are as far away
                      from eachother as possible by backing up until the
                      screen doesn't scroll anymore.

IV. FATALITIES:
MK4 Fatalities sorted by character.
Updated: April 15th
================================================================

     Fatalities were the original type of finishing moves.
They have changed the face of the genre forever.  Originally,
Fatalities were "dark, evil, and violent" ways to kill an opponent
after winning the fight.  MK4 returns to this style and features
extremely gory Fatalities like the original ones.  In fact, many
of the original Fatals have been applied to MK4 in 3D while the
other Fatals in the game are all-new, but follow the same line of
violence.


****************************************************************
- KAI
****************************************************************
1) Fatality #1: "The Back Breaker"

             Hold BLK (U, F, U, B, HK)

  DISTANCE FROM OPPONENT: Close.
  DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: **

  DESCRIPTION:
   Kai grabs one of your legs and arms, and holds
   you up over his head. The camera circles around Kai as he
   holds his opponent up, and the announcer chuckles. Kai begins
   to attempt to pull you apart at the waist. After a couple of tugs,
   you break in half at the mid-section, and blood shoots everywhere.
   Kai drops the remaining 2 halves of your body to the ground.
   The upper half twitches and moves around as though its still alive
   before laying lifeless.

  TIPS and/or SUGGESTIONS: None.


2) Fatality #2: "Fireball of Death"

           Hold BLK (U, U, U, D, BLK)

   DISTANCE FROM OPPONENT: Outside Sweep.
   DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: **

   DESCRIPTION:
    Kai begins to levitate and floats up into the air.
    The camera angle shifts and ends up just behind the opponent's
    left shoulder, looking upward at Kai. Then, he shoots a large
    fireball straight at the opponent, and it hits his/her head,
    exploding it to pieces. The camera angle shifts again, this time
    panning upward towards the ceiling, looking down at the decapitated
    opponent at a "birds-eye" view, now dead on the ground,
    with his/her bloody head sitting a couple of feet away.

   TIPS and/or SUGGESTIONS: None.


STAGE FATALITIES:

   camera angle changes revealing many sharp spikes on the ceiling.
   The opponent then goes flying straight for them before slamming
   into them and sticking on the ceiling.

  TIPS and/or SUGGESTIONS:
   A) If you hold DOWN on both joysticks while your opponent is
      impaled on the spikes, they'll slowly slide off before
      falling back to the ground, a bloody mess.


2) Prison Stage Fatality: F, F, D, HK (Prison Stage Only)

   DISTANCE FROM OPPONENT: Close.
   DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: *

   DESCRIPTION:
    Kai picks you up, with one hand
    grabbing your arm and the other grabbing your leg. He begins to
    spin you around. Once enough speed has been picked up, he/she
    lets go, and you go flying straight for the large ventilation
    fan in the background, before hitting it straight on, body parts
    and blood shooting all over the stage. Finally, the opponents
    decapitated head goes flying straight for the camera, before
    hitting it making a large blood splat on the screen.

   TIPS and/or SUGGESTIONS: None.


****************************************************************
- RAIDEN
****************************************************************
1) Fatality #1: "The Shocker"

  DISTANCE FROM OPPONENT: Close.
  DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: **

  DESCRIPTION:
   Raiden grabs his opponent and lifts him above his
   head. He then begins to shock him/her with his lightning powers.
   As Raiden is shocking his opponent, the camera slowly goes from a
   frontal view of the fatality to an overhead view. After around 5
   seconds of shocking, the opponent explodes into pieces. The
   explosion is then shown from 2 different angles, the last angle
   being another overhead "birds-eye" view. The opponent's head
   flies up at the camera, then falls back down and hits the ground.

  TIPS and/or SUGGESTIONS: None.


2) Fatality #2:  "The Staff Impale"

            Hold BLK (D, U, U, U, HP)

   DISTANCE FROM OPPONENT: Close.
   DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: **

   DESCRIPTION:
    Raiden stands next to his opponent, gets out his
    large wooden staff, and stabs it right into the abdomen of
    his opponent. Raiden lifts him up off of the ground and into
    the air. He then charges lightning from his hands, up the staff,
    right into the opponent's stomach. The powerful electricity
    soon radiates throughout his/her entire body. Finally, after the
    opponent has died, Rayden swings the staff around, which causes
    the opponent to go flying off the end of it and slamming to the
    ground.

   TIPS and/or SUGGESTIONS: None.

  DISTANCE FROM OPPONENT: Close.
  DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: **

  DESCRIPTION:
   Shinnok throws something at the floor, and is
   immediately engulfed in flames. He disappears, and a swirling
   portal opens up right next to the opponent. Suddenly, a huge
   skeletal hand comes out of the portal, and grabs in the direction
   of the opponent. It grabs him/her, and wraps its long bony fingers
   around its now tiny body. It begins to squeeze, and after a few
   squeezes, the head of the opponent pops off, and blood squirts
   everywhere. The hand slowly goes back into the portal and Shinnok
   re-appears.

   DESCRIPTION:
    Shinnok begins to levitate his opponent,
    and then dissappears into thin air, and a very large portal
    appears under the floating opponent. The camera zooms out,
    showing the entire portal, and in the center of the screen, the
    opponent, hanging lifelessly in the air. Suddenly, 2 huge
    skeleton hands come out of the portal. One hand goes to the left
    side of the opponent, and the other goes to the right side. Then,
    both hands clap, and come together at the same time, smashing
    the opponent between the 2 skeleton hands. Blood and body parts
    shoot all over, and the hands go back into the portal, before it
    closes and Shinnok re-appears.

   and he is soon engulfed in the mist. The mist slowly dissipates
   before revealing a huge green dragon, ala MK2, in Liu Kang's place.

    and begins to swing them around, like he would for his Prison
    Stage Fatality. The camera zooms all the way out, and up towards
    the ceiling, giving us a "birds-eye" view of the stage. Then, he
    lets go of the victim, and they go flying straight for the
    camera. Before they are able to crash into the camera, Liu Kang
    shoots a fireball straight up at his opponent. The fireball
    hits the victim, causing him/her to explode into peices, shooting
    blood and body parts all over the screen.

****************************************************************
- REPTILE
****************************************************************
1) Fatality #1: "The Face Chew"

             Hold HP+HK+LP+LK (U)

  DISTANCE FROM OPPONENT: Close.
  DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: ****

  DESCRIPTION:
   Reptile runs up and tackles his opponent, and wraps
   his legs around the opponent's waist. He grabs the opponent's head
   with both hands, and begins to viciously chew away all of the flesh
   on his/her face. Blood shoots everywhere as the camera spins in a
   full circle around Reptile. Then, Reptile lets go of his opponent
   and backs away. The opponent stumbles back, and falls to the
   ground. The camera zooms in, showing the characters face, now
   nothing more than a bunch of blood and muscles attached to a
   skull.

  TIPS and/or SUGGESTIONS:
   A) Try to end the final round of the match by doing a jump punch or
      kick, then immediately hold HP, HK, LP, LK, and BLK down, get close
      to them, and press UP. Be careful, however, not to kick them or
      punch them when you hold down HP+HK+LP+LK.


2) Fatality #2: "The Acid Vomit"

              Hold BLK (U, D, D, D, HP)

   DISTANCE FROM OPPONENT: Outside Sweep.
   DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: **

   DESCRIPTION:
    Reptile stands just outside of sweep distance as the
    camera shifts from its normal position to behind the dizzy
    opponent. From behind the opponent, we see Reptile beginning to
    levitate and float up into the air. Then, once he's made his way
    up, he vomits a whole bunch of acid spit straight down in the
    opponent's direction. The opponent screams in pain as the acid
    begins to burn away his/her flesh. Soon, all that's left is a
    bloody skeleton. Finally, Reptile comes back down to the ground,
    and the camera zooms in on what's left of the opponent.

   TIPS and/or SUGGESTIONS:
    A) When this Fatality is performed on Scorpion, the game will
       lock up and reset during the falling animation. You will
       not get your game back if this happens, so you may not want
       to perform this move on Scorpion.

    stinger right into the torso of the opponent, and tears
    the upper portion of his/her body off. Blood shoots

   to tug both of his/her arms. The opponent begins to bend over Jax's
   foot as he pulls harder and harder. Then, the right arm comes
   ripping off, then the left, shooting blood all over the place. Jax
   throws both arms to the ground, and the opponent stands there with
   blood shooting out of his/her arm sockets before falling to the
   ground.

  TIPS and/or SUGGESTIONS:
  A) Due to the amount of necessary time needed
     to hold LK, you may need to begin holding LK
     toward the end of the final round.

    light. He continues to charge them up, and they begin to

    fists, and delievers a powerful slam to the opponent's
    head, crushing it to peices. The glowing fists explode
    into tiny purple particles and shoot in all directions
    upon impact. Blood shoots out of the opponents neck, as
    he/she falls to the ground.

    Jax picks you up, with one hand
    grabbing your arm and the other grabbing your leg. He begins to
    spin you around. Once enough speed has been picked up, he/she
    lets go, and you go flying straight for the large ventilation
    fan in the background, before hitting it straight on, body parts
    and blood shooting all over the stage. Finally, the opponents
    decapitated head goes flying straight for the camera, before
    hitting it making a large blood splat on the screen.

   DESCRIPTION:
    Reiko stands at sweep distance as the camera shifts
    from its normal position to behind Reiko. Then, Reiko shoots a
    whole bunch of Shurikens straight at his opponent. Each Shuriken
    sticks into his/her body, shooting blood all over the floor. The
    force of all of the Shurikens being shot causes the opponent's
    body to fly across the room, away from Reiko, and helplessly
    slam into the wall. Finally, Reiko holds one last Shuriken up to
    his eye and aims it at the dead opponent. He shoots it, and it
    sticks right between his/her eyes. The camera zooms up on his/her
    bloody carcass, and a trail of blood leads from Reiko to the dead
    opponent.
