     This guide's is a collective of all the information I could find about
     the final boss and main villain of Mortal Kombat: Deception, Onaga the
     Dragon King. It is by no means complete, a good FAQ never is, but it
     does contain everything I've learned about the character.
    
     An online version of this guide will soon be available on my website
     as soon as I finalize this text-based version of it.
    
     This guide, so far, is only to appear on www.gamefaqs.com until I decide
     to post it on others sites.

     Version 1.2 - Fixed a few errors.
    
     Version 1.1 - Updated Gamecube method to play as Onaga. Made a seperate
                   section about unlocking Onaga.
    
     Version 1.0 - I think this is as complere as an Onaga FAQ is going to
                   get, until there turns up a way to control him without
                   a cheat device.
    
     Version 0.4 - Corrected a few mistakes.
    
     Version 0.3 - Added a faster mirror for the photos. Corrected a few more
                   things in information. Added yet another special move.
    
     Version 0.2 - Editted the layout a little. Added another special move
                   to his list. A few people emailed me to correct the fact
                   that Onaga will indeed stage death you in the last fight
                   of arcade mode. Added Onaga's Puzzle Fighter info. Added
                   more to the FAQ section.
    
     Version 0.1 - Pretty much just started. Added everything I could right
                   now, plus I'm sure there's going to be some spelling
                   mistakes. Definitely there will be updates to come.
                   Hopefully the the guide will reach FINAL status when the
                   real way to unlock him is known.

     A growing trend in newer game guides is the use of virtual page numbers.
     This has helped incredibly for readers to navigate rather lengthy
     guides. Just use your browser's FIND command (Ctrl + F for most) to type
     in the "page number" listed. They are listed only twice, in the Table of 
     Kontents and their respective section, so you can leap directly to a 
     section.

    | ONAGA BACKGROUND                                             | MKDO200 |
    ==========================================================================
    
     Onaga is introduced with back story, dating back since MK:DA. He also has
     a planned ending, as seen in the Production Art. His ending never made it
     into the programming, however.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | BACK STORY                                                   | MKDO201 |
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Onaga was first mentioned in the introduction of Mortal Kombat: Deadly
     Alliance. Shang Tsung and Quan Chi formed an alliance to wake the army
     of the Dragon King. It is said that whomever controls this army would
     be unstoppable. Onaga is the Dragon King whom this army once belonged
     to.
    
     Onaga was the original ruler of Outworld, the parallel universe to 
     Earthrealm. His grand advisor, Shao Kahn, betrayed Onaga by poisoning
     him, thus killing him. Shao Kahn assumed the throne of Outworld and
     transformed it into an imperialistice realm, bent on conquering the
     other realms. He would hold tournaments called Mortal Kombat in which
     the inhabitants of the realms would have a chance to save their land
     from Shao Kahn taking it over. This would prove furitless, however,
     as kombatants who would finish Mortal Kombat would meet their fate
     when they were faced with Kahn's bodyguard, Kintaro. Anyone who could
     beat Kintaro would then have to fight Kahn himself, and all who have
     reached Kahn have only met their deaths. Kahn handed control of the
     Mortal Kombat tournament to Shang Tsung as he had to deal with other
     matters, mainly involving resurrecting his queen, Sindel. Meanwhile,
     a mysterious egg emerged in the depths of Outworld...
    
     One arena in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance featured the Dragon King's
     egg in a lava type environment. This was Onaga's egg. It would take the
     six Kamidogu to provide the power to hatch this egg. The character Blaze,
     a hidden fighter in MK:DA, was the guardian of the egg. It is assumed in
     the events of MK:D's Konquest that Onaga erases Blaze's memory and kills
     him, which is why you can find Blaze wandering the Netherrealm without
     a memory.
    
     Mortal Kombat: Deception opens up with Onaga marching in on the battle
     between Raiden, Shang Tsung and Quan Chi. This causes the former enemies
     to put aside their difference to focus on trying to defeat this greater
     evil. Their combined might could not destroy him, so Raiden sacrificed
     himself in an explosion of light in an attempt to kill Onaga. This act
     only resulted in the deaths of Quan Chi, Shang Tsung, and the destruction
     of the Dragon King Army. Raiden, being a god, did not die but returned
     to the Realm of Order (MK:D's equivalent of Heaven).
    
     Having been fed up  with the humans constantly bringing the Earthrealm 
     to the brink of destruction, Raiden became a dark god. He no longer cared
     about protecting the human race, his new objective was to make sure that
     the humans did not destroy Earthrealm. He was particularly angered with
     the warrior Shujinko, the human who was decieved into collecting the six
     Kamidogu and awakening the Dragon King.
    
     Onaga waits in his palace, with the six Kamidogu and Shinnok's amulet
     which has the power to merge the Kamidogu and the realms. One by one
     the kombatants of the sixth Mortal Kombat tournament attempt to 
     challenge Onaga and protect the realms from mearging into the One Being.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | ONAGA'S ENDING                                               | MKDO202 |
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Scene 1: "My enemies had failed to prevent me from fusing all the
               weapons of the Elder Gods into one. I used this ultimate
               weapon to warp reality, merging the realms into a singular
               existence."
    
     Scene 2: "Not satisfied with merely ruling one realm, I took all that 
               exists and merged it into myself. There can only be one
               consciousness. I am everything. I have become... the One
               Being."
    
     Note: Onaga has no ending if you beat the game. The ending comes from
     the Production Art for his planned, but never implimented, ending.

    ==========================================================================
    
     Onaga only has one fighting style. Using the CS button will just
     keep repeating it. You will notice many of the same moves have 
     different button combonations. He's a rather simple character. Be
     prepared to just use a lot of strong, melee combat and a few simple
     and powerful moves. He plays a lot like the boss characters in the
     previous Mortal Kombats.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     I've discovered that Onaga indeed has a Puzzle Fighter version of him
     hidden in the game. Whether or not he can be sed or fought against by
     conventional methods is yet to be known.
    
     Super: Arrange (Arranges all the colored blocks next to each other)
    
     If you decide to play as Onaga, you must keep in mind two things. First
     of all, his wings cover up about 30% of your play area. So only play as
     him if you're pretty good. Second, his super move builds up very, very
     slowly. I doubt you'll ever get to use the move unless you're playing
     3-round matches. Other than that, he plays like any other Puzzler.
    
    ==========================================================================
    | FIGHTING AGAINST ONAGA                                       | MKDO400 |
    ==========================================================================
    
     As Onaga is a boss character, he does not play like a normal battle. He
     does require a different approach, and a gimmicky tactic is required if
     using a normal kombatant to face him.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | NORMAL CHARACTERS VS ONAGA                                   | MKDO401 |
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Onaga is like Motaro in that he is completely immune to projectile
     attacks. This could be why Raiden, Shang and Quan Chi were unable to 
     defeat him in the beginning of the game--all they used were their
     projectile attacks. You have to hit him with strong melee attacks and
     combos. Do not jump attack him.
    
     You will notice he has high defense. You need to use the Up and Down
     buttons to move towards the six Kamidogu and touch them. When you
     break a Kamidogu, Onaga will be stunned briefly and his defense will
     be halfed for one attack. Use this oppertunity to hit him with a long
     chain combo. You only have six chances per battle to use this tactic.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | ONAGA VS ONAGA                                               | MKDO402 |
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     If playing as Onaga, one thing you'll notice is that you can not smash
     the six Kamidogu. You need to just lay on the melee attacks faster than
     the CPU Onaga can lay them on you. Do not bother to use the Dragon
     Breath or Dragon Slam as Onaga is immune to both.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    | VS PUZZLE KOMBAT ONAGA                                       | MKDO403 |
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     When fighting Onaga in Puzzle Kombat, the same handicap that applies to
     using him applies to fighting against him: his wings. As his wings will
     cover up a good portion of his play field, you can not be too sure what
     combos he is building up. He'll rarely get to use his super, as his
     super meter builds up very slowly. Other than that, he is fought like
     any other Puzzle Fighter.
    
    ==========================================================================
    | UNLOCKING ONAGA AS PLAYABLE                                  | MKDO500 |
    ==========================================================================
    
     Currently Onaga is unavailable to be playable outside of a cheat device
     such as Codebreaker or Action Replay. I used Codebreaker kodes to play 
     as Onaga. For PS2, these only work with the normal version of MK:D, not 
     the Premium Package. No Gameshark kodes exist, officially anyway.
    
     Note: These codes will enable Onaga for both Arcade and Puzzle modes.
    
     If a technique to officially unlock Onaga without a cheat device, this
     guide will be updated with that information immediately.

    | FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS                                   | MKDO602 |
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     1. Is Onaga playable?
     A. We don't know yet. It's possible. For now you can use a Cheat Device.
        Because of his deal with the ending, I believe if he is playable, he
        is only playable in 2-player mode. Although, Goro and Noob in MK4
        were playable in 1-player and they didn't have endings either.
    
     2. Is there an easy way to beat Onaga?
     A. Just collect the Kamidogu, and hit him while he's stunned.
    
     3. Is he related to the mystery Koffin WQ?
     A. He might be. Afterall he only needs one koffin, he does not have a
        storyboard, bio, alt costume or alt bio.
    
     4. Can Onaga perform stage deaths?
     A. Yes he can... and he'll do it to you in the final battle of arcade
        mode if you're not carefull!
     
     5. Can you perform a stage death on Onaga?
     A. As far as I know, yes. At least the cliff stage works. You can not
        perform the Dragon King's Temple stage death on him, at least in
        arcade mode. Some work, some don't.
    
     6. What happens if you beat the game with him?
     A. It just goes to the credits, skipping any story-line ending.
    
     7. What about the Production Art unlocked in koffins IQ and MN?
     A. Apperently Midway wrote a storyline ending for him. It seems they
        did not wind up programming it in, however.
    
     8. Does Onaga have combos?
     A. No, he only has melee and special moves. He plays a lot like Goro,
        Kintaro, Motaro and Moloch from the previous games.
    
     9. Can Onaga use the weapons found in arenas?
     A. Yes, and he can perform the combos related to them too. These are
        the only combos he can do, in fact.
    
     10. Does Onaga have Fatalities or a Hara-Kiri?
     A.  No, it just goes right to the "Onaga Wins" message if you win.
         However you can perform stage fatalites with him.
    
     10. Do the Codebreaker codes to use him work online? (PS2 only)
     A.  Yes they do. Surprise you online friends in both Arcade and Puzzle
         Kombat by using Onaga!
    
     11. Where can I see pics for proof of him in arcade and Puzzle Kombat?
     A.  I am now hosting them here: http://www.picturetrail.com/elranzer/
    
     13. Any other interesting facts about him?
     A.  Yes I know of a few things...
         - If you play as Onaga, the load screen almost always shows Onaga
           render artwork.
         - Onaga has only one melee attack listed in his Move List.
         - Onaga only has Dragon Breath listed as a special move, the other
           special moves are not listed. Strange.
         - You can use CS to switch fighting styles. However, it just keeps
           cycling back to Dragon.
         - The Move List actually lists one combo (1,2) but it does not work.
         - His throw move does not work most of the time, but it does work.
         - Rumor has it that Raiden's ending in MK:DA shows a preliminary
           picture of Onaga.
         - Onaga's ending is the one of only three told in 1st-person
           perspective.
