Mortal Kombat Deception Shujinko guide VFinal for PS2/Xbox by Mobius Gear1
NOTE: This should be the only version posted on a site.

=============================================================================
Introduction:
=============================================================================

Shujinko is a powerhouse. More to come. 

NOTE: I will NEVER play online with any name such as Mobius Gear1 or 
      MobiusakaBorat or EVER reveal myself in any way as the creator of this
      guide. If anyone is claiming to be me, they are NOT. This is in regards
      to some mails I have been getting revealing some impersonators. 

New to version 0.75

New to Version 1.0

Final version

- There is nothing new in this version. Please read the note below for 
  more info. 

Note: I sold my copy of the game a couple weeks ago. I had fun with it for a 
      short while which was the plan, but the engine is too broken for my 
      tastes. Again, I totally appreciate all the e-mails people sent in. You
      have made writing this guide a treat. Farewell. 

Final Note: People mailed me asking questions about online tactics,
            since I don't play anymore I can't answer them. 

=============================================================================
Why Shujinko? - Rating 3.5/5
=============================================================================

-------
Pros:
-------

- The most damaging combos in the game currently belong to him
- He has a wide array of special moves
- His throw sets up for a juggle combo
- His F+4 mantis combos have a built in side step

-------
Cons:
-------

- His mantis stance does not have a mid hitting juggle laucher
- Most his dial-a-combos can be entirley blocked in the standing position.
- Between all of his combos and special moves there might be too much to 
  remember for the average fight gamer

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

- A breaker is performed by pressing F + BL
 
When can it be performed?
  - While you are getting pounded in by a ground combo 
  - On a single hit, right as it is about to hit you.
  - While you are blocking you can use the breaker 
  - Throws - On some throws you can break. You can like Scorps and thats only
    one one of the last hits. Dont waste breakers on throws.
  - Juggles - You can stop juggles as well.

- You can NOT use a breaker to knock someone into a DT.  
- You only get 3 per match and they do no damage. 

Having trouble performing breakers? 

-Use the breaker MASH tactic. This works in every case. If you are in one of
the above situations, you can use this method to help you. Hold down on the 
block and start tapping forward over and over and you will perform a breaker.
Sometimes you see people using a breaker on your very first move! If you are
blocking you can be tapping forward before any attacks are attempted by the
opponent...as soon as they try something you will breaker on the very first 
hit.

2. Biographies:                     		      	                [BIO]
=============================================================================

Name: Shujinko
Place of Origin: Earthrealm
Alignment: Good
Allies: Damashi
Foes: Dragon King, Scorpion

Long before Liu Kang had won the Mortal Kombat tournament in Earthrealm, 
Shujinko had begun his quest to retrieve the Kamidogu for the Elder Gods. His
journey took him to many realms where he met many experienced warriors along 
the way.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.1 First Person Bio:                                                   [BI2]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was a fool. I had allowed myself to be deceived into believing that I 
worked for a greater good. I was in fact an unknowing tool of a greater evil.
My ego allowed Onaga, the Dragon King, to manipulate me into bringing 
together the lost Kamidogu. They are the very weapons by which the Elder Gods
smashed the One Being, forming the many realms we call existence. But their
misuse can also bring the realms crashing together again... reawakening the
One Being... unmasking all reality. 
The realms are the shattered consciousness of the One Being, who has been
 working subconsciously through the Dragon King. Should Onaga succeed in 
conquering reality by fusing the Kamidogu, he will unwittingly begin a 
cascade of events that will merge all the realms together. The One Being will
 become whole once more, and all other beings will cease to exist. I must 
find and unite the warriors of all the realms if I am to save us. I will use
 the Dragon King's gift against him. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.2 Alternate Character Bio:                                            [BI3]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The realms are the shattered consciousness of the One Being, who has been 
working subconsciously through the Dragon King. Should Onaga succeed in 
conquering reality by fusing the Kamidogu, he will unwillingly begin a 
cascade of events that will merge all the realms together. The One Being will
become whole once more, and all other beings will cease to exist. I must find 
and unite the warriors of all the realms if I am to save us. I will use the 
Dragon King's gift against him. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.3 Ending:                       			                [END]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: Since it is his voice that narrates all the endings (except Raiden's), 
      he narrates his own ending. That is why it is in the first person.

So that I would be able to defend myself during the quest to find the
Kamidogu, Onaga had given me the power to absorb the fighting ability of any
warrior I encountered. But his "gift" would prove to be his undoing. The 
warriors in Outworld were in disarray. Heroes were not focused on the true
threat of Onaga and villians were unaware that they were bringing about their
own destruction by serving him. I united them, and in one moment, absorbed 
their combined fighting power. I shattered each of the kamidogu, the source
of his invulnerability. This weakened Onaga, and I attacked him without mercy.
His mortal form was no match for a kombatant infused with the powers of so 
many warriors. The Dragon King was finally defeated. The realms will remain 
as they have since the beginning.

These can only be gotten once you have beaten Konquest mode and reload your
file. Some call this your second time through, though technically it isnt.

The times here were throughly tested by Tony Williams at 
spider64@bellsouth.net He says he "saved before they are supposed to appear
and meditate to see exactly when they come up and exactly when they go away."
The only one he is not sure of is fatality one, which we agree is most likely
also at anytime. His note: "Not sure on time! There might not be any if my 
notes imply so without stating time or date."

*Note: Scorpion does 300% damage and he gains his health back. Don't fret 
       though, because he is still pretty easy. You can do any of the monster
       combos in the combo section to tear him up. More simply you can abuse
       F+4,1,1,CS,2,4,CS,1 then block, do it again, repeat. I also heard some
       where that if you can abuse the torpedo move over and over again, that
       is, if you have it.

Ice Blast - rating: 1/5         
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: The classic Sub-Zero move

Comments: The ice blast has seen its age over the years. At close range this 
          move is dangerous and you really could be doing other things. At 
          far range you wont be catching any decent players with it. At mid
          range its still too risky to be worth it. Btw, at mid range you have
          the power fist...a much much better option. I dont suggest using 
          this move almost at all. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Flip Kick - rating: 4/5                 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Copied from Lei Mei...Shujinko's feet get a purple sparkle and
             he flips over headfirst towards his opponent hitting them twice,
             once with each foot.

Comments: By itself it isnt all that great a move. It comes out at ok speed,
          you should pretty much only use it in combos...and it adds some 
          serious damage too. It aslo juggles the opponent so that you can do
          even more damage. A great move for this reason. Shy from a perfect 
          score because its not something you want to do outside of a juggle.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bicycle Kick - rating: 3/5
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: The classic Liu Kang Move

Comments: If your opponent is even remotely close to a DT do a small combo, 
          maybe throw them to start it, but make sure to end the combo with 
          this move. Its great for knocking people into DTs and covers quite
          a bit of ground. You dont have to combo, the move by itself will
          DT, but if you get blocked...ouch. You may even be perfectly set up
          to get DT yourself. Some people like to do this move a lot, but I 
          say leave this one in combo land too. 
          
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tele-Slam - rating: 2/5
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Copied from Ermac/Kenshi...Identical to Ermac's tele slam, Shu
             uses one hand to raise his opponent into the air and them slam
             them into the ground with enough force that they bounce back up
             high enough to be juggled. His is hand glows green as he does
             this.

Comments: In not as crazy about using this move with Shujinko as I am Ermac
          and Kenshi. For the other two its one of their best moves but for
          Shujinko he really doesnt need to be taking the risk of doing this
          move when he could be doing others. It can be blocked standing or 
          crouching and has big recover time. You can catch opponents while
          they are walking forward or back (if they are in range) and when 
          they jump. Use it if you want but I dont suggest/use it for either 
          use by itself or practical combo use (flip kick is much better)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Foot Grab - rating: 1/5
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Copied from Sindel... Shujinko quickly gets on the floor and 
             stretches out flat with his arms pointing towards his opponent. 
             He then slides forward until he grabs the opponents ankles. Once
             that is done he kicks the guy in the face with his heels all the  
             while hanging onto the ankles. 

Comments: A nice low move that can be used to go under projectiles and damage
          the enemy. You may catch some people off guard. Dont use it at long 
          range or else you will miss and end up right in front of the enemy, 
          begging for a smack in the face. Use it at mid or close range. For 
          the people that like to constantly walk around the arenas even when 
          there is no exchanges being made, this move is useless. They will 
          side step it every time at mid range. If someone has any good 
          applications for this move feel free to e-mail me with them because
          as I see it its not that great a move. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Power Fist - rating: 5/5 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Copied from Kobra ...One of Shujinkos fists starts to flame as 
             he holds it out and he dashes forward very quickly. 

Comments: This is his best move outside of combos. It is very fast and should
          be used similar to Nightwolf's shoulder dash. At mid range it comes
          out so fast that the opponent usually cant react fast enough to 
          block. Dont over do it with this move and it will practically become
          a garunteed hit every time. Its perfect for when you and the enemy
          are circling around the arena at mid range waiting for the other to
          do something. Do it and you will most likely hit them if you havent
          already done it a million times. Dont be afraid to try and beat 
          other special moves or people trying to combo. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Torpedo - rating: 2/5
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: The classic Raiden Move

Comments: The move is good in that it hits mid and will take a battle from 
          the middle of an arena all the way to the edge. If you like to DT
          then you might want to use this move to reposition the fight. Its 
          not that great as a combo ender and outside of combos the power
          fist is a much better move. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Spear - rating: 2/5
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: The classic Scorpion Move

Comments: Use it just as you would Scorpion's spear. Most people dont fall 
          for this move if they play defensive...but for those agressive
          players that liket to jump or walk in you can catch them. It can be 
          used it some combos but you want to avoid using it too much on its 
          own. Rely on the fact that since you use it so rarely you might 
          catch your enemy once...if that. Some people that get their dial a
          combo sidestepped continue to do it as they go off in some odd 
          direction, in cases like this you can spear them.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fatality 1: Up, Down, Down, Forward, X (close)
       
     Description: Shu takes his blades out, he loves these blades, and he 
                  takes several swipes at the enemy. The enemy looks to be
                  intact throught the swipes until Shu finally kicks them in 
                  the chest, at which point they fall apart because of the
                  cuts he made.

Fatality 2: Back, Up, Forward, Forward, Square (close)
    
     Description: Using his two blades as a scissor, Shu "snips" his opponents
                  head clear off their body. 
 
Hara Kiri: Down, Back, Down, Back, X
   
     Description: Shujinko takes his blades out and tosses them into the sky.
                  On their way back down they chop off an arm each. Shu takes
                  a step or two before he falls to he ground.

The man can basically destroy you from any stance any way he wants, even from
a throw. Just make sure to force your opponents to use up their breakers 
as quickly as possible. Then all you need is one opening and they are as good
as DT or dead.

This is the only character in MKD that really has a WIDE range of possible 
combos. So I wouldn't be surprised if you find many more than I did.

Note: All these combos were tested on Shujinko. The damage may vary slightly 
      from character to character.

F+4,1,2,B+2 is better to knock people into DT while it tends to do less

What can I say? Its easy to get a throw off and you can do some monster
damage from it. Shujinko is the combo king in MKD.

Note: There are so many possiblities I just listed one powerful one from each.

Infinite 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This first posted by TekkenJester as far as I saw on the gamefaqs boards. He
could have come up with it, most likely it was someone else. My point it that
it wasnt me, so dont credit me. 

My reason for posting a broken infinite combo in a faq that many people see 
is to illustrate the broken-ness of this game. I like the game, hence the 
faqs I write, but there is no denying its broken. All the top ranked people 
such as myself exploit the problems in the engine. Some cheaters do memory 
card (erase stat losses) and other cheats. If the developers of the game play
it online and get an infinite done to them...then they may finally realize 
the problem. Probably not, but here in the infinite without further ado:

Can start with a Freeze or Spear...
Freeze - Side Step - Spear - Side Step - Freeze - Side Step - Spear - etc.

It is very simple to pull off. Either you will win by damage or time...
...marvel in its cheapness. Btw, its not the only infinite in the game 
either :/

5. Strategy                              	                        [SGT]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Only a few here so far, will add more later.

- His Mantis U+3 is a GREAT poke/DT move. 

- His F+4 combos have a build in side step, you can do it to avoid some 
  enemy attacks and go right into a combo. Even his dial-a-combos are strong.

- Powerfist (D,F,2) is a super fast move. Abuse this fact to beat out other 
  moves. You can catch your enemy off guard more than you would think.

- When you and the enemy are circling around the arena at mid range waiting 
  for the other to do something do a Power fist and you will likely hit em. 

- Use the bike kick in simple combos to get a DT. It not only DTs, but pushes
  your opponent back quite a ways, so much so that your opponent may think 
  they were free of DT danger and not be in a alert mode to get to safety.

5.1 What are good Methods to DT?       	                                [DTM]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Bicycle Kick combos - read more at the strat section [SGT] and the special
  moves section [SPM]

- People forget that shujinko has scorps spear move, try it as a surprise 
  sometime. This also goes for his other moves, but that one is the best for
  a surprise. 

- Mantis U+3 is also a good DT move. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.2 Mixups and 50/50 forces             	                        [MIX]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: 50/50 is an aggresive style of play required for higher lvl fights.
      Basically, once your opponent is on the floor a 50/50 force can start.
      You walk upto them while they are getting up and you can either sweep
      (low block required) or mid attack (high block required). If the move
      connects the 50/50 force loops and you walk up to them. This time will
      have to guess if you will sweep or mid attack? They have to guess and
      block accordingly. They have a 50% chance of guessing correctly. This 
      is a broken feature in the game, no skill required really. 

Mantis: Low: B+4 
        Mid: U+3

Shaolin Fist: Low: B+4
              Mid: F+1 This one pops them up then you can do just about any
                       combo you want. This is valuable and has to make you
                       reconsider using this stance more(many people ignore
                       shao fist completely)

      try this combo from F+1: F+1 -> D B 3 -> B D B 4 -> 1,4,4,CS 8hits 35%
      there are more damaging options instead, but you get the idea. Must  I
      chew your food for you? 

Dan Tien Dao: Low: D+3 or D+4
              Mid: U+2 This also leads to a pop-up - you can get some nice 
                       damage here, look at the combo section under U+2 in Dao

Any stance: Low: Any low move
            Mid: Raiden Torpedo This is good to get them close to that DT if
                                that is your style of play. 

Note: These are not the types of mix-ups that you can link for the entire 
      match and cheese them to death...you have your infinite for that. These
      should be used in short bursts like a mix-up would in a real non broken
      fighting game.

5.3 Online Issues with Shujinko          	                        [ONL]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shujinko is actually not very effected by lag. The only combos that you 
may have trouble with are ones that use B D B 4 but you dont really need that
move and have much better combos elsewhere. Timing will be more of an issue 
than lag itself. Again, Of course, only play 3 or 4 star pingers. I would use
that rule even in puzzle kombat.
