    |I. The History of Mortal Kombat|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
        When Mortal Kombat launched into arcades nationwide in
    1992, it shocked and amazed fighting game fans.  From it's
    excessive blood and gore to the amazing motion-captured moves,
    Mortal Kombat was born.  The basic premise of this new and
    advanced fighter, was to choose a character and battle it out to
    the death with another human opponent or the CPU.  What set this
    game apart from inferior fighting games, *cough* Street Fighter
    *cough* was, as stated earlier, its excessive use of blood and
    gore.  After a match concluded, the announcer screamed "Finish
    Him!"  At this point the player had the opportunity to input a
    series of directional button presses to hopefully perform the
    desired, what was then known as, Finishing Move, on his or her
    opponent.  Finishing Moves were often very bloody and gory,
    somehow reigning death upon the opponent.  Some Finishing Moves
    included Sub-Zero's infamous spine rip, where he would rip off
    his opponent's head with the spinal cord still attached, along
    with Kano plunging his hand deep into his fallen opponent's
    chest, and violently ripping out his or her heart.  Mortal Kombat
    was amazingly popular for its time, drawing huge crowds to
    various arcades nationwide.  A sequel was therefore, inevitable.
    The sequel to this rapidly growing and popular fighter was aptly
    named, Mortal Kombat II.
        Mortal Kombat II launched into arcades in 1993, a year after
    its predecessor.  This new and improved Mortal Kombat
    brought what the original title had brought to the table, plus
    more.  The new Mortal Kombat introduced seven (7) new playable
    characters to the series, as well as returning favorites.  Each
    character also had two (2), now what came to be known as
    Fatalities, as opposed to the original one (1).  Each fighter
    also possessed a Babality and a Friendship.  These new "Finishing
    Moves" were implemented because of the series' negative media
    response, claiming it was harming America's youth with its
    excessive violence.  They were added to give the Mortal Kombat
    series some comic relief, and rid it of some of the game's
    violence.  The Babality was simple.  A character would transform
    his fallen opponent into a baby, complete with a diaper.  The
    Friendship, on the other hand, was humorous in it's own right.
    One example of a Friendship was Baraka's present giver.  Baraka
    held out his finger, and then reached behind him and brought out
    a present for his opponent.  Another very humorous Friendship was
    Liu Kang's.  During Kang's Friendship, a disco ball would lower,
    and the player would see Liu Kang dance under the ball to disco
    music.  Mortal Kombat II was a massive success, and is revered by
    many Mortal Kombat fans as the best of the series.  Because of
    Mortal Kombat II's success, Mortal Kombat 3 was on its way.
        When Mortal Kombat 3 finally hit arcades in 1995, it was met
    with critical acclaim.  It had been two years since the last
    iteration in this storied series and fans were getting restless.
    Most fighting game fans had moved on to the new 3-D fighter,
    Namco's Tekken.  The Mortal Kombat elite returned for Mortal
    Kombat 3 though, but were left with a mediocre sequel that
    offered more of the same.  The now traditional Fatalities,
    Babalities, and Friendships made a return, along with an all-new
    -ality, the Animality.  The Animality was simple.  The character
    would transform into some sort of animal and maul/kill his or her
    opponent in various ways.  Some favorites include Cyrax's Great
    White Shark.  Cyrax morphed into the shark, went under the
    screen, and came up on his victim with a huge chomp, devouring
    his opponent in one bite.  Sub-Zero's polar bear was also
    popular.  Sub-Zero transformed into a polar bear that would then
    proceed to fall on his victim and maul them to death.  Mortal
    Kombat 3 was not well-received, so Midway set out to expand
    Mortal Kombat 3 with an "expansion pack" of sorts to MK3,
    Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.
        Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 launched later in the same year as
    Mortal Kombat 3 (1995).  It offered players five (5)
    returning favorites, who missed the cut in Mortal Kombat 3:
    Scorpion, Reptile, Kitana, Mileena, and Classic Sub-Zero, as
    well as offering players two (2) characters new to the franchise,
    Jade and Ermac.  Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 also offered plenty of
    new fighting arenas, including the popular Jade's Desert.  Some
    Mortal Kombat 3 characters received move upgrades,  balancing
    everyone's move sets.  UMK3 was mildly successful.  The Mortal
    Kombat development team was fresh out of new and innovative
    ideas.  However, they did come up with a "new" Mortal Kombat
    game.  The game would be a compilation of sorts, combining almost
    every Mortal Kombat character into one game.  This game came to
    be named Mortal Kombat Trilogy.
        Mortal Kombat Trilogy launched in 1996 only on home consoles.
    This "new" Mortal Kombat allowed players the chance to play as
    three (3) returning favorites in, Johnny Cage, Baraka, and
    Raiden, not seen since Mortal Kombat II, and two (2) brand new
    characters in Noob Saibot, and Rain.  Mortal Kombat Trilogy was
    merely a compilation of all the previous games in one. Nothing
    new and innovative was introduced unfortunately.  The only real
    addition to the game not seen in previous iterations, was the
    Brutality.  The player would input a series of nine (9) button
    presses, having the character perform a massive overlaying combo,
    eventually leading to the opponent exploding.  It was mildly
    entertaining, but offered nothing new to pique casual gamers'
    interest.  John Tobias, the lead storywriter for Mortal Kombat
    set out to create a side-story to MK.  This game featured Sub-
    Zero, chronicling his adventures outside of the Mortal Kombat
    Tournament.  The game came to be known as Mortal Kombat
    Mythologies: Sub-Zero.
        Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero debuted for the Nintendo
    64, and the Sony PlayStation in 1997.  As mentioned
    above, the game followed Sub-Zero on his journeys outside of the
    Tournament.  It was an action/RPG side-scrolling game. As
    Sub-Zero defeated enemies, he gained experience points which were
    used to upgrade Sub's move-set.  Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-
    Zero was received to an open-armed audience as many Mortal Kombat
    fans were eagerly anticipating John Tobias' foray into the
    action/RPG market, as Tobias is/was revered as a great
    storywriter.  Ed Boon, one of Mortal Kombat' founders, then set
    out to produce another brand-new Mortal Kombat game.  No more
    "expansion packs," no more compilations, an all-out new MK game,
    Mortal Kombat 4.
        Later on in the year 1997, Mortal Kombat 4 was launched into
    arcades across the United States.  MK4 even had a road
    trip, which spanned the country previewing the new Mortal Kombat
    game at arcades everywhere.  Mortal Kombat 4 was the first title
    in the series to play in "full" 3-D.  There were a handful of new
    characters in this game, including: Reiko, Jarek, Fujin, Quan
    Chi, Kai, Shinnok, and Tanya.  Mortal Kombat 4 was a return to
    the series' darker roots.  The game featured dark storylines of
    revenge, deceit, and hatred.  The game returned to only two (2)
    Fatalities per character.  No more of those other "-alities" that
    brought comic relief to the series.  A unique twist on the
    traditional hand-to-hand combat was the inclusion of character
    specific weapons.  At any point during the match, the player had
    the choice of pulling out a deadly weapon.  Some weapons included
    Scorpion's massive broadsword, Jax and Reiko's spiked clubs,
    Sonya's spinning blades, and even Tanya's boomerang.  Weapons
    added a whole new layer of strategy to Mortal Kombat 4.  The
    weapons were able to be thrown and dropped when hit, and the
    weapons even had their own move-set.  Mortal Kombat 4 implemented
    some new ideas, but these innovations were overshadowed with the
    arcade releases of Namco's Soul Calibur, and Tekken 3.  Mortal
    Kombat 4 will always be remembered as the first 3-D Mortal Kombat
    game.  Not to be outdone, Ed Boon and company decided to release
    another "expansion pack" coinciding with the release of Sega's
    new Dreamcast system.  In September of 1999, Midway released
    Mortal Kombat Gold.
        Mortal Kombat Gold closely resembles Ultimate Mortal Kombat
    3, content-wise.  It added five (5) returning characters to
    Mortal Kombat 4's already meaty fighter lineup.  The characters
    added were Cyrax, Mileena, Baraka, Kitana, and Kung Lao.  This
    new iteration added nothing new to the series gameplay-wise
    unfortunately.  Mortal Kombat Gold did not fare too well on the
    Dreamcast because of the lack of gameplay additions, all of its
    bugs and glitches, and most importantly, its main competition,
    Soul Calibur, the top fighting game by far, at the time.
        A year later in 2000, John Tobias decided to undertake
    another action/RPG clone, a la Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-
    Zero.  This time the game was to be in full 3-D, chronicling the
    adventures of Jax on his adventures in trying to capture his
    arch-nemesis, Kano. The game came to be called Mortal Kombat:
    Special Forces.  The game featured a level-up system much like
    MKM:SZ.  Instead of learning new moves, Jax learned new combos.
    Halfway through development, John Tobias left Midway completely,
    for undisclosed reasons.  This occurrence all but ensured Mortal
    Kombat: Special Forces would grow only to become a complete
    failure.  Mortal Kombat: Special Forces was a failure because of
    its lack of innovation, poor graphics and gameplay.  This game
    tarnishes Mortal Kombat's record as the storied fighting game
    franchise everyone thought of it as.  Two and a half years later,
    Ed Boon and his development team in Chicago now embark upon an
    entirely new MK, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.
         On "Fatality Friday," November 19th, 2002, Mortal Kombat:
    Deadly Alliance was released to the masses. Shedding the number "5"
    at the end of it's title, to seem more as a rebirth of the series,
    rather than a sequel, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance sought to
    regain the top spot Mortal Kombat once held.  Mortal Kombat: Deadly
    Alliance featured fully 3-D digitized characters with 5,000 to
    6,000 polygons each.  The game also featured full 8-way movement
    with multiple fighting styles per character.  This fighting style
    aspect, was rarely, if ever seen in a fighting game before.  The
    game was in development for a few years and it was clear the
    developers would not settle for anything less than the best.  They
    accomplished just what they set out to do, as Mortal Kombat: Deadly
    Alliance went on to sell millions of copies worldwide.  It made the
    PlayStation 2's Greatest Hits line, the Xbox's Platinum Hits line,
    and the GameCube's Player's Choice Line.  It's multiple fighting
    styles, and a return to the series' darker roots propelled this
    fighter to the top of the pack.  It was only a matter of time
    before a sequel surfaced.  What we have now is nothing short of
    phenomenal; what we have is an entirely new Mortal Kombat, Mortal
    Kombat: Deception.
         Before the release of Mortal Kombat: Deception however, Midway
    delivered a Mortal Kombat game exclusive to the Game Boy Advance in
    late August of 2003.  That game was dubbed: Mortal Kombat:
    Tournament Edition.  This game was more or less an expansion pack
    to the already released Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance Game Boy
    Advance version.  Only three (3) of MK:DA's characters made a
    return in MK:TE.  Those characters were Shang Tsung, Quan Chi, and
    Scorpion.  The game also featured characters not available in the
    original MK:DA: Bo Rai Cho, Johnny Cage, Raiden, Nitara, Mavado,
    Hsu Hao, Reptile, Cyrax, and Drahmin.  MK:TE also featured an all
    new character into the Mortal Kombat universe: Sareena.  TE also
    included old favorites Noob Saibot and Sektor.  Mortal Kombat:
    Tournament Edition also featured Weapon Fatalities, which was a
    first for the Mortal Kombat series as well.  Mortal Kombat:
    Tournament Edition was mildly successful, going out of production a
    short while after its release.  This game was intended to tide
    gamers over until Midway's surprise sequel of 2004, Mortal Kombat:
    Deception.
         About 2 years after Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance's release,
    Mortal Kombat: Deception has surfaced to keep the fighting game
    crown firmly rooted on the head of the Mortal Kombat series.  Also
    without a numeral at the end of its name, Mortal Kombat: Deception
    has completely reinvented the wheel.  This new MK includes so many
    new and improved features, it is hard to find a place to begin.
    First and foremost, the game features almost exactly the same
    fighting engine Deadly Alliance used; there are still two hand-to-
    hand fighting styles, and one weapon style.  There are many new and
    returning characters, multiple Fatalities per fighter, multi-tiered
    arenas, an all new overhauled Konquest Mode, new mini-games, (Kombat
    Chess, and Puzzle Kombat) and Death Traps (AKA Stage Fatalities).
    Midway has put a huge emphasis on the multi-tiered arenas as some
    arenas have Death Traps associated with them, taunting the player
    with their ominous presence.  A first in the Mortal Kombat series is
    the inclusion of Hari Kari moves.  These finishing moves act as the
    famous "Suicidealities" of yore, as you are given the opportunity to
    kill yourself before your opponent does.  Fans familiar with DA will
    no doubt feel right at home with Deception.  All of these new and
    improved features should once again propel the Mortal Kombat series
    to new heights.  Mortal Kombat: Deception is the newest and most
    advanced entry into the series yet.  Mortal Kombat is back and this
    time darker, gorier, and more surprising than ever.  The series has
    been reborn.  Are you ready to step inside the arena known as Mortal
    Kombat for the sixth time?

    |II. The Story of Mortal Kombat: Deception|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
         "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...
         Now an ancient evil has returned from beyond death and
    threatens the very existence of the realms.
         Will the champion of the Elder Gods have the power to defeat
    this threat borne of deception?
         Only you can determine the future of the realms."
    
        The above is Mortal Kombat: Deception's story in a nutshell.  As
    with every Mortal Kombat incarnation the story goes well beyond what
    is said above.  When you first boot up Deception, you are treated to
    a very cool, very stylistic FMV sequence going into much more depth
    about the storyline.  Below is a very detailed description of the
    happenings in said FMV.
    
        The FMV opens up with the camera panning up the steps to Shang
    Tsung's Palace from Deadly Alliance, Soulnado and all.  Shujinko is
    narrating talking about how the Deadly Alliance had succeeded in
    defeating everyone who opposed them; and how they had successfully
    resurrected the Dragon King's ancient army.  He then talks about how
    Raiden is the last of the kombatants.  It then goes to a fight scene
    between Raiden, Shang Tsung, and Quan Chi; it is basically a 2 on 1.
    Raiden holds his own for a bit, shooting his adversaries with bolts
    of lightning.  He is weakened, and Quan Chi hurls his green skull at
    Raiden who gets hit and flies back.  Raiden then tries to blast Chi
    with a bolt of lightning only to have Quan raise a wall of green
    skulls to protect himself.  Raiden continues to blast lightning at
    the wall and it finally breaks down hitting Quan Chi.  With Shang
    Tsung wounded and on the ground, Shang reaches his hand toward the
    Soulnado and shoots a soul at Raiden knocking him down.  Quan and
    Shang then both use their power to summon a snake made of fire to
    kill off Raiden once and for all.  With Raiden levitating in mid-
    air, the snake lunges at Raiden, driving him hard into the ground,
    defeating him.
         With Raiden defeated, the Deadly Alliance turns on each other.
    Quan Chi and Shang Tsung have a short battle with Quan Chi getting
    the upper hand.  Quan breaks Shang Tsung's hand and punches him in
    the face.  As all this is happening, the ground starts to shake, and
    the camera pans to the opening to Shang Tsung's Palace.  We then see
    the lumbering mass of Onaga, the Dragon King, walking toward the
    Deadly Alliance; as he walks past them, Onaga's army bows before
    him.  Quan Chi and Shang Tsung being to hurl fireballs and green
    beams of energy at the Dragon King.  These attacks don't phase him.
    As they are about to give up hope, Raiden comes to on his own and a
    new alliance is formed.  The alliance of Raiden, Quan Chi and Shang
    Tsung, begin to shoot more fireballs and lightning at the Dragon
    King.  With none of this working, Raiden begins to build up energy.
    Once the energy is fully built up, a blinding light causes
    everything around them to explode.  Raiden had sacrificed himself to
    defeat the Dragon King.  His sacrifice was in vain however, as the
    blast barely phased Onaga.  With the palace in crumbles around him,
    the Dragon King picks up Quan Chi's amulet for himself.  We are then
    taken to a scene where Shujinko (the narrator) talks about how he
    had brought the amulet to the Dragon King, and how he was deceived
    into doing so.  Thus begins the story of Mortal Kombat: Deception.

    |III. Mortal Kombat: Deception Review|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         When the image of a scowling Baraka made its way onto the
    internet signifying the return of Mortal Kombat, I couldn't have
    been happier.  It had been a long time in the making, but the sequel
    to Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance was here at long last.  Taking
    about two years to complete, Deception is taking fighting games
    where they have rarely been before: online.  This marks the first
    time a Mortal Kombat game will be playable online, offering players
    the chance to engage in kombat with anyone around the world.  Not
    only is the main arcade mode online, but also Deception's side
    games, Puzzle Kombat and Kombat Chess.  Puzzle Kombat heavily
    influenced by Super Puzzle Fighter, and Kombat Chess closely
    resembling Archon, are playable online as well.  In addition to
    these already meaty improvements is the vastly overhauled Konquest
    Mode.  Konquest allows you to take a 13-year old boy and bring him
    on an adventure spanning almost 50 years.  There will be more on
    Konquest and the side games later in the review.  With so much
    material to cover, I better get to it; so without further ado, I
    present to you my review of Mortal Kombat: Deception.
         Much like Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance's fantastic opening
    FMV cut-scene, players of Deception are treated to something equally
    as entertaining.  The opening FMV of Mortal Kombat: Deception
    chronicles the events following the conclusion of Deadly Alliance.
    We FINALLY find out what happens to the Deadly Alliance itself, Quan
    Chi and Shang Tsung.  (SPOILER)  It turns out that Raiden, Shang
    Tsung, and Quan Chi face off in a fight to the death.  Raiden ends
    up "dying" only to have Quan Chi "kill" Shang Tsung.  Right as he
    does this however, the Dragon King (Onaga) comes lumbering in.  With
    Raiden and Tsung back up to fight, they try their hardest to stop
    this monstrosity.  Their powers are weak, and Raiden literally
    explodes, sacrificing himself to save humankind as we know it.  It
    is a VERY cool opening, and deserves to be mentioned. (SPOILER)
         Mortal Kombat Deception generously starts the player out with
    12 characters; the rest of these fighters are hidden and must be
    unlocked through various methods.  As is readily noticeable,
    Deception's cast features many familiar faces including, Kabal,
    Baraka, Nightwolf, Sindel, Mileena, and numerous others.  It is no
    lie that Midway did their homework and brought back fighters that
    the people wanted.  I applaud their efforts wholeheartedly (I
    definitely voiced my opinion of wanting Kabal back).  Deception also
    throws a number of fresh faces into the mix including Ashrah,
    Dairou, Darrius, Kira, and Hotaru.  These characters certainly
    should not be underestimated as they are every bit as lethal as the
    returning fighters.  The three fighting style play mechanic makes a
    return to MK: Deception.  Each character possesses 2 hand-to-hand
    fighting styles as well as one weapon style.  These styles can be
    changed at will throughout the course of a match.  This engine
    allows for almost an unlimited amount of kombos one can perform.
    They can start out a kombo in one style, then switch to a different
    fighting style mid-kombo and continue from there.  The controls in
    this game are top-notch being very responsive and easy to use.  One
    might consider the Training Mode a bit before actually getting it on
    with someone, so as to familiarize themselves with the play
    mechanic.  When all is said and done, the controls will have come to
    grow on you and pulling off 10-hit Style Branch Combos spanning
    every style should become second nature.
         Mortal Kombat: Deception's graphics engine continues where
    Deadly Alliance's left off.  The game looks almost identical to DA,
    but upon closer inspection one can identify many subtle differences.
    The main difference is the realistic backgrounds that Midway has
    crafted to fight in.  The arenas in DA, were detailed, but
    Deception's arenas are breathtaking.  They are absolutely enormous
    and span several different playing fields.  The Death Traps Midway
    has incorporated into its arenas are simply awesome.  They can play
    a pretty big role in the middle of a match, as one kick or punch can
    send your opponent (or yourself) into a trap you will never escape.
    The character models have also been beefed up to include more
    polygons per fighter.  The graphics featured in Mortal Kombat:
    Deception are definitely a sight to behold, and are nonetheless
    astounding.  Fatalities make a triumphant return to Deception, and
    per the public's numerous requests, each fighter has two, maybe you
    didn't hear me, TWO Fatalities, as well as his/her own Hari Kiri
    move.  The Fatalities featured in Deception are much improved over
    Deadly Alliance's seemingly rushed death animations.  They are all
    very brutal in nature, and pretty damn clever as well; a definite
    improvement over its predecessor.  Hari Kiri's are new to the Mortal
    Kombat universe and basically entail the defeated player killing
    himself before his/her opponent has the opportunity to perform a
    Fatality on them.  A clever idea indeed, but I didn't see myself
    performing Hari Kiri's all that often.  In the end, Deception's
    graphics somehow one up Deadly Alliance's in the sense that they
    feature higher polygon counts per character, and massive arenas that
    are detailed down to the last bloody footprint.
         The announcer from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is back to
    narrate this entry into the series.  He sounds just as good if not
    better than he did in Deadly Alliance.  Deception's sound effects
    are also top-notch, from every weapon clash to grunt and scream, it
    is all represented here.  The background music is something to be
    commended as well.  I have never seen a more in-depth soundtrack to
    a fighting game; the game even allows you to listen to any track you
    want under the Kontent section.    The Fatalities are the most
    gruesome since Mortal Kombat 4.  The sound effects during some of
    these, is absolutely spine-tingling.  You can hear every last drop
    of blood hit the ground, every last dying breath of your adversary,
    and every last muscle being torn from the bone.  As always, the
    sound guys at Midway (especially Dan Forden) have come through in a
    big way improving on an already stellar sound package featured in
    Mortal Kombat 5.
         Kontinuing in the tradition of greatness, Mortal Kombat:
    Deception also features more unlockables than you can shake a stick
    at.  You have the secret characters, the hidden arenas, the
    alternate costumes, the endings, the movies, the production photos
    etc.  It is unbelievable how much Midway has crammed into this game.
    Konquest and the Krypt are where you will be unlocking most if not
    all of Deception's tightly kept secrets.  The Krypt is back now
    featuring 400 koffins instead of 676 like Deadly Alliance; the lower
    number means better unlockables :).  Konquest is the single-player
    game of Deception and Midway promises anywhere from 20-30 hours of
    gameplay from this alone!  It starts you out as a young boy
    following you (Shujinko is his name) as you become a man learning
    many different martial arts.  Deception's biggest secrets are hidden
    in Konquest, and they will be rewarded to those with enough
    patience.  The only downside to Konquest mode however, is its
    relative lack of graphic oomph; it looks a bit jaggy and is not all
    that high resolution.  One can't fault its decent graphics as this
    is a fighting game, not an adventure game; it is definitely nice to
    have.  Midway has also included two new mini-games replacing the
    Test your Might and Sight of old.  They are Kombat Chess and Puzzle
    Kombat.  Kombat Chess plays much like the old PC game, Archon in
    that you pick different characters to represent the different pieces
    in the game.  A match can take a long time, and you must be pretty
    good with a lot of the characters, as there is a lot of actual
    fighting going on here.  Puzzle Kombat closely resembles Capcom's
    Super Puzzle Fighter of yore.  It has you choosing from a cast of 12
    characters (6 must be unlocked). It then throws you into a game
    where one must match up different colored blocks with the MK Dragon
    Symbol of the same color.  It is a very fun diversion from the main
    game, and is an absolute blast playing head-to-head with a buddy.
    If the Konquest Mode, Chess Kombat, and Puzzle Kombat, were not
    enough to keep you busy, Mortal Kombat has expanded to the online
    realm.  It is now possible to fight anyone, anywhere, anytime
    online; there is virtually NO lag whatsoever as you duke it out with
    a trash-talking Aussie.  How cool is that?
         After all is said and done, Mortal Kombat: Deception can
    definitely stand up to the best of them (Soul Calibur and Tekken, I
    am talking to you).  It has managed to improve upon everything that
    made Deadly Alliance so great.  It has improved graphics and sound,
    multi-tiered arenas, more new characters, more Fatalities, new and
    very fun mini-games as well as a revamped Konquest Mode.  This game
    will keep players busy for months if not years!  The added online
    mode will definitely put a dent in your social life, as it is very
    addicting; it perfectly recreates the old arcade battles so long ago
    with Mortal Kombat 1, 2, and 3.  Midway has completely gone out of
    their way to please fans of the series; they have done just that and
    more.  I cannot wait to see what the Mortal Kombat team has up their
    sleeves for Mortal Kombat 7...

    |IV. PlayStation 2 and Xbox Default Controls|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
         Mortal Kombat: Deception's control setup is identical to Mortal
    Kombat: Deadly Alliance's in the sense that there are no traditional
    HP, LP, HK, and LK buttons.  They have been replaced with Attack
    buttons numbering 1-4.  The infamous and long-missed Uppercut from
    every past MK (except DA) has made a return as well.  The Special Move
    button from Deadly Alliance that allowed a character to Throw, Taunt,
    Neijin etc. is nowhere to be seen.  The Block button and Change Style
    buttons are identical; there is also no run button in Deception instead
    allowing characters to dash in and out.  The real difference in
    controls between Deception and Deadly Alliance is because of the 2 new
    modes that this new Mortal Kombat offers: Puzzle Kombat and Kombat
    Chess; Konquest Mode also has its own set of buttons.  The button
    configurations for the above modes will be detailed below as well.  I
    go more in-depth on the fighting style, hand-to-hand, and weapon combat
    in the "Basic Weapon and Hand-to-Hand Moves" section.

    V. Basic Weapon and Hand-to-Hand Moves
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         Mortal Kombat: Deception uses the Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance
    engine; it is virtually unchanged.  The three fighting styles return
    with each character having two hand-to-hand styles as well as one
    weapon style.  These hand-to-hand styles have around 25-30 moves each
    with the weapon styles having 15-20 moves.  Every move in the different
    fighting styles is different.  Along with having its own unique set of
    moves, they have their own unique set of combos as well.
         As stated above, weapons return from Deadly Alliance.  When a
    player takes out his/her weapon, their fighting style changes to suit
    the weapon they are wielding; these weapons also have their own unique
    set of moves.  A new feature in Mortal Kombat: Deception is the
    inclusion of stage-specific weapons.  These weapons can be just lying
    about or be in very hard to reach areas.  When picked up, your
    character will drop the stage weapon if: you change fighting styles, do
    a special move, or get hit.  It is this way because these weapons
    inflict much more damage than your regular weapons.  Stage specific
    weapons should be picked up with caution as they are much bigger and
    slower; they are also placed near Death Traps enticing the player to
    tread close.
    
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    VI. Fighting Style Explanation
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         As stated above, each character in Mortal Kombat: Deception has
    two hand-to-hand fighting styles along with one weapon style; these
    fighting styles can be changed at will throughout the course of a
    match.  These fighting styles allow players to come up with an almost
    infinite number of combo possibilities.  A combo can be started in one
    style, then finished off in another.  Some of the fighting styles new
    to MK: Deception are: Silate, Hua Chuan, Choy Lee Fut, Ying Yeung, Val
    Tudo, and Choujaio, as well as a number of other new styles mixed in
    with recycled ones from Deadly Alliance.  As in every other Mortal
    Kombat, (except 1 and 2) a number and a percentage pops out of the
    corner of the screen.  This number displays how many hits the combo
    was, and the total amount of damage, in percentage, that was done.
         When the Change Style button is pressed, the character cycles
    through his/her three fighting styles.  For example, Mileena has the
    Ying Yeung and Mian Chuan hand-to-hand fighting styles.  She starts out
    in the Ying Yeung style, and when the button is pressed, she switches
    to the Mian Chuan style.  If the button is pressed a third time, she
    switches to her weapon style, the Sai.  These button presses are the
    same for every character in the game.  It may take some players a
    little while to get used to this control setup if they are unfamiliar
    with MK: Deadly Alliance, but that is what Practice Mode is for.
    
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    |VII. Modes of Play|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    
    ~-~-~-~-~
    |Kombat:| "Classic Mortal Kombat fighting."
    ~-~-~-~-~
    
          In Arcade, the player faces off against CPU players of varying
    difficulty.  Along the way, they earn kurrency to be spent in the
    Krypt.  After completing the Arcade Mode, you unlock that character's
    ending.  Versus Mode allows the player fight a friend which.  Practice
    Mode is what it sounds like; it allows the player to practice his/her
    moves to their hearts content.
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    |Chess Kombat:| "The perfect blend of classic chess and Mortal Kombat."
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
         This "mini-game" is much akin to the old PC classic, Archon.  It
    has you picking 5 characters, which represent pieces on the chess
    board.  These pieces are: Leader, Champion, Sorcerer, Shifter, and
    Grunt.  I will go into more detail in the "Chess Kombat Strategy"
    section.
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    |Puzzle Kombat:| "A deadly puzzle game, Mortal Kombat style."
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         This "mini-game" is much akin to the old Capcom Super Puzzle
    Fighter series on the original PlayStation.  It comes complete with
    deformed characters battling it out on the bottom of the screen.  You
    have to choose one character to represent yourself.  Only six are
    selectable at first.  The remaining six must be unlocked.  I will go
    more into detail in the "Puzzle Kombat Strategy" section of this FAQ.
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~
    |Konquest:| "Explore the MK universe in this single player mode."
    ~-~-~-~-~-~
    
         This is the single-player mode of Mortal Kombat: Deception.  It
    has the player following a young man named, Shujinko.  It chronicles
    his quest as he grows, learns many of the fighting arts, and eventually
    becomes an old man.  This is where the meat of the unlockables are
    hidden.  I will go into more detail in the "Konquest Walkthrough and
    Unlockables Section."
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-
    |Xbox Live:| "Test your MK skills against other players on Xbox Live."
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         This is where you can long online and face anybody at any time
    throughout the world.  If you have PlayStation 2, it will say something
    different in this area.
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-
    |The Krypt:| "Unlock hundreds of items with your MK kurrency."
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         The Krypt is back from Deadly Alliance albeit with less koffins.
    That may be a good thing however, as there are better unlockables this
    time around.  Unlike Deadly Alliance however, some koffins require keys
    to be opened.  These keys must be recovered in the Konquest Mode.  The
    Krypt section of this FAQ will explain this.
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-
    |Kontent:| "View movies, images and other unlocked items you've
    ~-~-~-~-~-  earned.
    
         Just like in Deadly Alliance, the Kontent section is where most of
    what you have unlocked in the Krypt is stored.  It has everything from
    characters, to arenas, to endings, to movies, a soundtrack, and even a
    playable Area 51 demo!
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~
    |Profiles:| "Create, view or delete a profile."
    ~-~-~-~-~-~
    
         Also, like in Deadly Alliance, the player is encouraged to create
    his/her own profile with a unique password.  Creating a profile allows
    you to save kurrency to later be spent in the Krypt.  Remember to load
    your profile before you engage in Mortal Kombat.
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    |Game Options:| "Change settings for game rules, sounds and other
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~  options.
    
         The options are exactly what they sound like.  They allow the
    player to toggle many things on/off, increase/decrease certain sound
    effects, determine the amount of rounds to win, turn Death Traps
    on/off, and finally, it allows you to configure your button
    configuration.

    |VIII. Arena Descriptions and Death Traps|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         All of the arenas featured in Mortal Kombat: Deception are fully
    interactive, meaning you can smash your opponent through walls,
    ceilings, etc.  This section will familiarize you with every arena and
    the nuances that make it unique.  I will start out with every arena's
    "story" and its physical description.  I will then go into detail
    explaining the various points throughout the arena in which you can
    interact.  Also, almost every arena in Deception has Death Traps and
    level-specific weapons associated with them.  In this section, I will
    also detail where the Death Traps are located along with descriptions
    of them.  Following the Death Trap locations will be the level-specific
    weapon locations.
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>
    Beetle Lair:
    <<<<<<<<<<<<
    
       Arena Description:
       ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         The Beetle Lair has the fighters starting out in what appears to
    be the upstairs of some ancient temple.  There are 2 stone pillars and
    huge glass windows which cast light into the fighting area.
         *INTERACTIVITY 1* These pillars can be destroyed either by you or
    your opponent.  Just walking up to them and punching/kicking them will
    break them.  It is much more fun to hit your opponent into them
    however; your opponent does not suffer additional damage from this.
         There are many little beetles scuttling around on the floor just
    waiting to be squished.  There are other red windows on the sides of
    this arena overlooking the lair itself.  There are also many doors that
    appear to go down to the lair too; all of these doors and some windows
    are adorned with a spider symbol.  Directly to the characters' left is
    a massive red pane of glass with the spider symbol on it.
         *INTERACTIVITY 2* This humongous red pane of glass can be broken
    just like the pillars.  You can either break it yourself, or knock your
    opponent into it shattering it into millions of pieces.
         In the bottom two corners of this arena are huge pots of fire with
    skeleton warriors etched into the stone beside them.  On the same wall
    with the pots of fire, is a suspiciously bare looking wall.
         *INTERACTIVITY 3* You can actually hit your opponent through this
    wall making them land far, far below into the actual beetle lair
    itself.  Your character proceeds to jump down after them.
         You land onto the hard stone below.  You are now fighting in a
    massive room with a very high ceiling.  Behind where you land are
    massive wooden doors adorned with that same spider symbol; there are
    big pieces of rock/brick that looks to have crumbled away next to the
    doors.  To the left and right of the wooden doors are huge pillars with
    spiders carved into them.  On the left and right side walls, there are
    more pillars and more red panes of glass.  To the left of where you
    land, there is a huge red flag adorned with the Mortal Kombat Dragon
    Symbol.
    
    Death Traps and Level-Specific Weapons:
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
         *DEATH TRAP* There is no Death Trap associated with the Beetle
    Lair arena.
    
         *LEVEL-SPECIFIC WEAPON* This arena's weapon is know as the
    Thoraxe.  It is long with that same spider symbol at the top made out
    of steel.  The spider's legs jut out and look very sharp.  The Thoraxe
    is located just to the left of where you fall after being hit through
    that wall.  The Thoraxe is slow, but does massive damage if used
    properly.
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    The Slaughterhouse:
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    
       Arena Description:
       ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         In this arena, you actually start above the slaughterhouse
    portion; the actual slaughterhouse is below where the fighters stand.
    To the left of you and your opponent, is a huge statue of a skull with
    blood gushing out of its mouth down to the "basement."  You start off
    in a fairly sized fighting area; it looks as if you are fighting in an
    ancient temple, as there are many openings around you with which
    various temples can be seen on either side.  Behind both of you is an
    entrance that leads to the slaughterhouse portion of this arena.  You
    fight on what looks to be a decaying and withering wooden floor.
         *INTERACTIVITY* If you knock your opponent into the air in the
    right spot, they will break through the floor, and fall straight into
    the slaughterhouse.
         You then land on the lower level of this arena.  To the left of
    where you fall, are huge gears that are apparently making the spiked
    columns rotate.  These gears look to be surrounded by a pool of blood
    with a steady stream falling from the ceiling (from the skull with the
    blood gushing from its mouth.)  There are many stone passageways on
    either side of this area as well.  In one corner of this area are the
    rotating spike columns.  If you or your opponent are hit into this
    contraption a Death Trap occurs, which is detailed below.
    
    Death Traps and Level-Specific Weapons:
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
         *DEATH TRAP* In one corner of this area are two rotating spike
    columns.  They rotate very fast, and when hit into it, you or your
    opponent stop the blades from spinning.  You are however, stuck in
    between the two massive structures.  As the columns pick up speed, you
    are completely torn apart with blood and meaty chunks of flesh that are
    shot at the wall behind these spiked columns.
    
         *LEVEL-SPECIFIC WEAPON* This arena's weapon is called the Cleaver.
    It is found VERY close to the spinning spike columns, so use extreme
    caution when attempting to pick it up.  If you are successful, it can
    be very helpful in knocking your opponent into the blades.
    
    
    >>>>>>>>>>>
    Sky Temple:
    <<<<<<<<<<<
    
       Arena Description:
       ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         The Sky Temple is set atop a VERY tall building.  It is raining
    and lightning in this arena with clouds above the fighting area
    circling very fast.  Around the four corners of the temple, are wooden
    areas containing goblets of fire.  The four sides of the temple have
    wooden fencing surround them.
         *INTERACTIVITY* Any of the four wooden fencings can be broken if
    you or your opponent hits one another through one when you are close.
    If hit through, you will fall a ways before hitting a shingled awning
    creating a huge dent.  You will then fall farther until you land on
    another level of the Sky Temple.  This level is almost identical to the
    level you started on with the four corners, with the goblets and so on.
    Wooden fencing only surrounds three sides of this level.  If hit
    through this wooden fencing again, a Death Trap occurs, which is
    detailed below.
    
    Death Traps and Level-Specific Weapons:

         *DEATH TRAP* On the second level of the Sky Temple (after having
    been knocked off the first) you can again be knocked through the wooden
    fencing.  If this happens, your character falls a VERY long way down
    screaming all the way.  About halfway down, the camera switches to an
    "on the ground" view, so you can see the player falling from below.
    When they land on the hard concrete, they explode into a mess of blood
    and bones.  For added effect, their decapitated head smashes into the
    camera, ala Mortal Kombat 4.
    
         *LEVEL-SPECIFIC WEAPON* This arena's weapon is called the War
    Hammer.  It is very much akin to Raiden's weapon of Mortal Kombat 4.
    It is located in between the two kombatants on the very first level of
    the Sky Temple.  It is easily visible because of the green square
    surrounding it.  The War Hammer can cause massive damage if a hit is
    connected with the opponent.  It can also be used as an easier way to
    knock your opponent to the second level of the Sky Temple.

    Yin Yang Island:
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    
       Arena Description:
       ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         You start off fighting in this arena on a small sandy island.
    Very happy Hawaiian music is playing in the background.  The water is
    clear blue, and other little islands can be seen in the distance; fish
    even jump out of the water at times.  Rock formations jut out of the
    clear water, and a yacht bobs in the water behind the island.  Directly
    to the left of where you start, is a wooden structure holding a wooden
    replica of the Mortal Kombat Dragon Symbol.  On the island you fight on
    are many palm trees and stone statues.
         *INTERACTIVITY 1* These stone statues can be broken.  You can walk
    up to them and punch/kick them, or you can hit your opponent into them;
    they will shatter upon impact, but no extra damage occurs.
         *INTERACTIVTY 2*  The palm trees littering the arena can cause a
    humorous animation to occur.  If you hit your opponent against a palm
    tree, they will slide down onto their butts only to have a coconut (or
    skull) fall on their head causing them much confusion.
         This sunny facade is then overshadowed by the other form of this
    arena; yep, this stage has two forms.  On the one side, you have the
    happy, sunny feeling, then at random times, the stage flips to its evil
    side.  The happy music is replaced by a dark tone, and the palm trees
    turn into snake heads that try to bite you as you fight.  It is now
    dark and raining here also.  The level functions the same except for
    those few cosmetic changes.  The edges of the arena can be hazardous to
    your health.  The Death Trap is described below.

         *DEATH TRAP* If you get your opponent close enough to a certain
    side of the island, you can hit them into the water.  After in the
    water, they are eaten by piranhas; all that is left of them are bloody
    chunks and blood red water.

    Chamber of Artifacts:
    <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    
       Arena Description:
       ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         The Chamber of Artifacts is made almost entirely of glass.  You
    begin the fight battling on interconnected panes of glass.  In the
    middle of the arena is a sword inside a spinning green emerald.
         *INTERACTIVITY 1* This spinning emerald can be broken allowing the
    sword to be used against your opponent.  Just hit or knock your
    opponent into the emerald and it will shatter allowing your access to
    Lungchuan Dao sword.
         To the left of the starting area are two double doors with tarps
    with Asian symbols on them.  All throughout this circular arena's walls
    are artifacts collected by the Black Dragon.  There are also windows
    allowing light to spill in, and stairs leading up to another level.
    The glass you are fighting on can crack and eventually break.
         *INTERACTIVITY 2*  If you or your opponent are hit onto the same
    pane of glass one or two times, it will eventually break allowing you
    access to the bottom portion of this arena.
         The bottom portion of the Chamber of Artifacts looks similar to
    the upper portion.  There is now a massive pillar in the middle of the
    fighting area with Asian symbols on it.  Below these panes of glass
    that you still fight are, are massive gears moving around.  There are
    torches and windows on the wall as well as more artifacts and Asian
    writings.  The glass above you can still be broken allowing for:
         *INTERACTIVITY 3* When fighting on the bottom portion, you can
    uppercut your opponent sending them flying through one pane of glass
    and then falling back down through a second pane of glass.  Once you
    are on the bottom portion, there is no way of getting back up to the
    top area.

         *LEVEL-SPECIFIC WEAPON* This arena's Level-Specific Weapon is
    called the Lungchuan Dao.  It is a sword very reminiscent of Liu Kang's
    sword from Mortal Kombat 4.  It is small and fast and can inflict small
    amounts of damage in a short amount of time if used properly.

    Nethership Interior:
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
       Arena Description:
       ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         You may remember the arena known as the Nethership from Mortal
    Kombat: Deadly Alliance.  You may also remember that you could only
    fight on the deck of the ship.  In Deception, however, you fight below
    deck, in the belly of the ship.  The two fighters start out on a ledge
    above the very bottom of the ship.  Behind each fighter is a map on the
    wall, apparently to help the sailors of the ship.  To the left sides of
    the fighters are glass windows overlooking the sea outside.
         *INTERACTIVITY 1* These glass windows can shatter if you or your
    opponent get knocked into them.  Nothing more can happen with these
    windows, other than them breaking and spraying glass shards everywhere;
    it is more for effect than anything.
         To the right of the fighters is a wooden fence that is blocking
    off the very bottom of the Netherbelly, which affords the fighters a
    much larger area in which to do battle.
         *INTERACTIVITY 2* If you get knocked through this wooden fence,
    you will fall down and into a set of wooden barrels splintering them,
    and landing hard on your back.  You will now be on the bottom of the
    Netherbelly.
         The bottom of the Netherbelly is a much longer and wider area in
    which to battle.  In the very middle of this space, on the ground, is
    the Mortal Kombat Dragon Symbol.  On the sides are many braziers with
    raging flames in them.  There are also wooden statues of dragons, and
    other mythical sea creatures jutting out from just under the ceiling.
    There is ancient writing on the walls of this area as well.  In the
    middle of this fighting area are corpses hanging from the ceiling with
    ropes around their necks.
         *INTERACTIVITY 3* These bodies hanging from the ceiling can be
    knocked into the opponent to cause some damage.  When they are touched
    they swing back and forth limply hitting anyone in their way.

    Hell's Foundry:
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    
    Arena Description:
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         Hell's Foundry is a gigantic warehouse type structure.  You start
    on a platform overlooking the many giant steel presses around you.  You
    fight on marble floor surrounded on all sides by enormous presses.
    These presses come up and down on hot coal making it very loud in this
    arena.  Above you are scattered walkways which are interrupted by
    bursts of hot, orange embers that fall over them.  The platform you
    begin kombat on is surrounded on three sides by steel fencing.  The one
    side not surrounded can lead to:
         *INTERACTIVITY 1* If you hit your opponent near the side of the
    platform with no steel fencing, they will splat against the wall and
    fall to the lower portion of Hell's Foundry.
         Once in the lower area of Hell's Foundry, you are given a close up
    look at the giant steel presses in action. You land on red marble floor
    surrounded on two sides by the presses.  There are also 4 pillars
    littered throughout this area of the arena.  If one gets too close to a
    giant press, you can be knocked onto it allowing for the Death Trap to
    occur.

         *DEATH TRAP* All throughout the bottom portion of the Foundry, are
    gigantic steel presses.  If knocked under one of them, you or your
    opponent will immediately start to burn, and try to crawl out on their
    hands and knees.  Before they knew what hit them, one of the giant
    presses comes down hard on top of them, reducing them to a bloody smear
    on the bottom of the steel.

         The Falling Cliffs level is unique in that it is constantly
    changing shape.  You fight on a circular piece of land very high off
    the ground.  The catch is, the outer edges continue to break away as
    the two characters fight.  You begin the fight on a piece of land with
    smoke "erupting" from its surface.  Around the outer edges of this
    circular piece of land are flags with Asian symbols adorning them; two
    of these flags have decaying bodies attached to their poles.  As you
    look around you will see numerous mountains rising up in the distance
    as well as smoking volcanoes.  There area also a few temples carved
    into the sides of these mountains with long stairs leading up to their
    entrances much like the first Mortal Kombat film.  If you are caught
    standing on the outer edge of this arena, you will fall to your death,
    which is described below.

         *DEATH TRAP* If you are caught on the outer edge of this arena,
    and it breaks away, you will lose balance and plummet to your death.
    You fall a long way and eventually land on a very sharp, very thick
    stalagmite/rock formation.  You or your opponent land on this with a
    sickening plop all the while blood pours from their body; the defeated
    opponent briefly tries to remove himself/herself from the spike but
    fails.

    Dark Prison:
    <<<<<<<<<<<<
    
    Arena Description:
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
    The Dark Prison has the kombatants starting out on a platform
    overlooking the prison courtyard; it also looks to serve as the shower
    for the inmates as there are shower heads sprinkling water all over the
    place.  To the left and right of the fighters are cell doors leading to
    even more cells for incarcerated criminals.  To the right of the
    characters, is a metal fence.
         *INTERACTIVITY 1* If knocked into this fence, you will be thrown
    from the shower area to the prison courtyard below; you proceed to land
    hard on your head/neck area.
         In the middle of this courtyard is the Mortal Kombat Dragon
    Symbol.  There are many, many cells containing past Mortal Kombat
    characters yelling for your attention. The likes of Stryker, Kintaro,
    Kung Lao, MoKap, Kano, Reptile, Kitana, Kai, Shang Tsung, Shinnok,
    Johnny Cage, Goro, Fujin etc are held in these cells.
         *INTERACTIVITY 2* If you or your opponent come too close to any of
    these cells, the character imprisoned will grab you allowing your
    opponent an extra hit or two.  This will cause no damage if you are
    grabbed and not attacked by your foe, however.
      Huge, rusty metal hooks also dangle down close to the arena floor.
    There is a Death Trap waiting silently in the corner of this arena
    which is detailed below.

         *DEATH TRAP* In one corner of the arena is a little indentation

    come sliding towards them, crushing them in between.

    Lower Mines:

       Arena Description:
       ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         The Lower Mines are pretty much exactly what they sound like.  You
    start the fight underground in what resembles a cave/mine.  To the
    kombatants' left, is a huge mechanical dragon head with rows upon rows
    of sharp teeth; it's mouth opens and closes as the fighters battle it
    out.  A Death Trap occurs if your opponent is knocked into this
    mechanical head which will be detailed below.  To the left and right of
    the dragon head are wooden structures used to help the miners; numerous
    walkways can be seen going up and down the walls.  To the fighters'
    left, is a wooden fence.
         *INTERACTIVITY 1* If you or your opponent are knocked into this
    fence, it breaks and you fall to the lower portion of the mines.
         This area of the mines resembles the upper area except there are 2
    more Death Traps down here.  Directly behind the fighter who took the
    fall is a gigantic steel rock crusher; you can be knocked into this for
    a very gruesome Death Trap which is detailed below.  The area you fight
    in is surrounded by a small black fence, behind which a massive furnace
    can be seen.  Behind the character who jumps down after the other was
    hit through the fence is a steep drop-off to a fire pit.  Behind this
    fire pit are conveyor belts moving rocks to and from eventually
    depositing them into this fire pit.  Once again, this fire pit is a
    Death Trap which will be detailed below.
    
    Death Traps and Level-Specific Weapons:
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
         *DEATH TRAPS* There are actually three Death Traps associated with
    this arena.  They will be numbered and described below:
    
       1. The first Death Trap is located near the starting point of the
    arena.  It is a giant mechanical dragon head with sharp teeth.  Once
    you hit your opponent onto/into it, they land half inside of its mouth,
    and half outside its mouth.  The dragon head then chomps down on the
    fallen foe, cutting them in half leaving only their legs.
    
       2. The gigantic rock crusher Death Trap is located behind the
    fighters when they are knocked through the broken wooden fence.  If
    knocked into this massive amount of steel, the opponent is "eaten" by
    this structure.  It continues to roll further maiming the hapless
    victim who was knocked into it; blood and bones fly as they are
    continually mauled.
    
       3. The third Death Trap is located behind the fighter who was not
    knocked through the wooden fence; it is a giant pit of fire.  When
    knocked into this pit, you or your opponent screams as they are
    incinerated upon impact.  A burst of fire erupts from the pit as the
    victim hits the fire/lava.

         The Pit makes its return from Mortal Kombat 1.  You fight on a
    huge square shaped area which is surrounded on all sides by rows upon
    rows of sharp spikes.  There are mountains on all sides of this
    fighting area as well as two bridges to the left and right of The Pit.
    These bridges are held up by massive pillars with spikes shooting out
    them.  The moon is shining brightly in the background, and paying
    homage to Mortal Kombat 1, there is the shadow of a witch flying past
    the moon on her broomstick.  Once knocked off the platform in which you
    start, you fall into the Death Trap which is detailed below.

    blood is pouring from their body.

         The Dead Pool also makes a return to Mortal Kombat, this time from
    MKII.  You are once again fighting on a square platform surrounded on
    all sides by green acid.  There is a Mortal Kombat Dragon Symbol on the
    floor in the middle of this square.  There are two cement doors on
    either side of this arena.  In three of the corners are statues of
    warriors.  The trademark chains with hooks litter this arena as well.
    In one of the corners is a balcony of sorts overlooking the fighting
    area.  The Shang Tsung from Mortal Kombat II watches the battle
    silently from this balcony.  Once you are knocked into this acid a
    Death Trap occurs which is detailed below.

    byte is heard after this occurs.

         The Living Forest is again one of the returning fighting arenas
    from Mortal Kombat II.  This time you are fighting on a very grassy
    piece of land in the middle of a forest.  In classic MKII fashion, the
    trees all have eyes, noses, and mouths.  Their expressions are fixed
    and do not move or make noise like Mortal Kombat II; they are still
    cool to look at however.  There is a small river/moat flowing around
    the square fighting area which is just for effect.

    |IX. Individual Character Stories/Stats and Moves/Fatalities|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
         The Character Select Screen in Mortal Kombat: Deception is
    again different, and has not been seen in any other MK thus far.  It
    is 8x3, with the character portraits situated toward the bottom of
    the screen.  When a character's picture is highlighted a 3-D render
    of them is displayed on either the left or right side of the screen
    depending on if you are Player 1 or Player 2.  In single player,
    each character's stats are displayed on the right hand side of the
    screen.  The characters from left to right are:
    
    -Jade -Kenshi -Scorpion -Mileena -Baraka -Sub-Zero -Sindel -Havik
    
    -Raiden -Li Mei -Kabal -Ermac -Nightwolf -BoRaiCho -NoobSmoke -Tanya
    
    -Shujinko -Hotaru -Ashrah -Dairou -Kobra -Darrius -Kira -Liu Kang
    
         I will list each character's Special Moves, their two hand-to-
    hand fighting style move sets, and their weapon move sets.  Regular
    kombos will also be contained in this section.  I will also list the
    character's stats, story, ending, Fatalities and Hari Kiris in very
    good detail in this section as well.

    |Performing a Fatality:|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         At the end of a best 2 out of 3 rounds match, the announcer will
    scream, "Finish Him!"  It is now time to enter a Fatality button
    sequence.  You can press the Change Style button to enter into Fatality
    "mode," or you can input the command without the Fatality style locked
    in.  Make sure you are holding Block when right up next to an opponent,
    so as not to accidentally hit them when trying to perform a Fatality.
    Each character has two Fatalities along with their own Hari Kari move.
    The Hari Kari move is a Suicideality, which can be used so your
    opponent cannot gain the satisfaction of performing a Fatality on you.
    Hari Kiris DO NOT need to be performed at a certain distance from your
    opponent; they can be done anywhere onscreen.
         Unlike in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, MK:D requires you to be
    a certain distance from your fallen opponent when inputting the button
    sequences for a specific Fatality.  These distances are pretty specific
    and are:
    
    >Close: You need to be right next to your opponent, and not a step
    away.
    
    >Sweep: You need to be within sweep distance of your opponent as in you
    need to be able to sweep them from where you are standing.
    
    >Far: You need to be at least one jump away from your opponent.  The
    best way to get "Far" is to get close to them and jump back once or
    twice depending on which character you are.
    
         *NOTE* I will list the initial 12 selectable characters in the
    order they appear on the Select Screen.  Following the first 12
    characters will be the remaining 12, also appearing in the order they

    his adversary two times in the stomach.  After those two punches,
    Scorpion knees you in the chest sending his opponent flipping
    through the air landing hard on their back.
    
         Description: Scorpion looks very much like he did in Mortal
    Kombat: Deadly Alliance.  His mouth guard more closely resembles the
    one worn in Mortal Kombat 4 however.  He still has two swords on his
    back and the infamous orangish/yellow ninja attire.  Scorpion had
    some metal knee pads in Deadly Alliance; he now has pieces of armor
    all throughout his costume.  His arms are bare, and he has metal arm
    guards and gloves; on his back are the hilts for two swords.  He
    wears dark colored pants, with metal knee pads.  His boots are very
    samurai-like in that they look like sandals; he wears black socks
    with them however.
    
    Alternate Costume: Scorpion's alternate costume is a remake of his
    Mortal Kombat 4 outfit.  He wears the same blue tights on his chest
    and legs; his head is also covered in it.  His mouth guard resembles
    that of a skull and his eyes are completely white.  He wears the
    trademark yellow vest looking thing over blue tights.  His arms are
    bare and he wears wrist guards and gloves on his hands.  He wears a
    yellow belt with a skull belt buckle.  He wears skin tight tights on
    his legs over blue samurai shoes with yellow/gold shin guards.  The
    back of his costume is blue and yellow, and he has his coiled spear
    on the left side of his belt.
    
              Story:
    
         In his haste to confront his nemesis, Quan Chi, he was ambushed
    by two Oni and cast into a powerful soulnado. He would surely have
    been torn apart by the souls trapped there had he not managed to
    escape into the Void. It was in this place that he first set eyes on
    the fabled Elder Gods. He would be forever changed by this
    encounter.

    been torn apart by the souls trapped there had I not managed to
    escape into the Void.  It was there that I first set eyes on the
    fabled Elder Gods.  I would be forever changed by this encounter."

    -->Fatality 1: Toward - Down - Toward - Toward - 1 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Scorpion rears his right hand back and proceeds to
    plunge it into his opponent's neck.  After the second tug, he rips
    off their entire head, spinal cord and all.  His opponent, headless,
    falls to the ground squirting blood from their neck as Scorpion
    raises his prize for all to see; the severed head and spinal cord
    drip blood as it is raised in the air.  A much gorier and updated
    version of Sub-Zero's MKI classic.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Toward - Back - Toward - Back - 1 (Close)
    
         Description: Scorpion spins away from his opponent and
    immediately sends his spear into his adversaries left arm.  With one
    tug, he rips it clean off sending it out of view.  Seconds later,
    Scorpion shoots out his spear again, this time lodging it into his
    opponent's right leg.  One tug later, their leg is sent flying,
    dismembered, off-screen.  With his opponent hobbling on one foot,
    and saying "No, no, no," Scorpion snaps their neck in one swift
    motion.  He then raises his hand in the air letting out a victory
    yell in the process.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Down - Down - Up - Back - 1
    
         Description: Scorpion slowly falls to his knees.  He then
    proceeds to wrap his hands around his neck and twist, snapping it
    with a sickening crack, killing him instantly.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       The Elder Gods had transformed Scorpion into their weapon in
    order to defeat the Dragon King before his plans of domination
    unmade the realms.  With enhanced abilities, he tirelessly tracked
    Onaga through the realms until finally he cornered him in the Nexus.
    The Dragon King had many allies, but they were no consequence.
       It was in fact Scorpion who was the true Champion of the Elder
    Gods, the Enforcer of their will.  Only he could stop the menace
    that threatened all that exists.  Only he could defeat the Dragon
    King.

    >Throw Description: Mileena hooks her legs around her opponent's
    neck/head.  She then proceeds to flip them into the air, making them
    land hard on their back once grounded.  It looks like Sonya's
    infamous Leg Grab, except Mileena gets some serious hang time.
    
    
         Description: Mileena does not look drastically different in
    this iteration of the series.  She does however, show much more skin
    than in the past.  She has her long, dark hair pulled behind her
    head in a ponytail with a gold headband.  Starting from her ears,
    and ending at her mouth, is a pink gypsy-like mouth guard, hiding
    her nose, and mouth from everyone; all that is visible are her cold,
    dead, eyes.  The upper part of her costume is green and is worn
    almost in a triangle over her chest, revealing much of it.  This top
    portion runs all the way down to her arms, where it turns pink and
    baggy.  She has a gold "belt" of sorts running across her chest.
    Below that is a brown belt tied into a knot.  Under that belt are
    what appear to be a pair of pink and black underwear.  Mileena's
    legs are bare and she fights on dark boots.
    
         Alternate Costume: Once again Mileena wears the pink mouth
    guard that covers everything from the tip of the nose down.  Her
    dark black hair is let down and is about shoulder length.  Her main
    outfit resembles a bikini of sorts.  It is pink with black trim and
    runs from her nether region all the way up across her chest and
    behind her neck.  This outfit is VERY revealing; coming off the left
    and right side of her "bikini" are pink and black tassels that flow
    smoothly as she fights.  Her upper forearms are adorned with pink
    and black arm guards that end at the elbow.  She has gold bracelets
    on both her wrists as well.  Her legs are bare except for pink and
    black leg guards that begin at the upper thigh and run down to her
    shins.  On each knee cap are gold objects.  She fights on pink
    boots, with a black trim/underside.
    
              Story:
    
         Created by the sorcerer Shang Tsung, Mileena has at last
    fulfilled her destiny as Kitana's successor by posing as the former
    princess. She misleads Kitana's military forces in an attempt to
    give the Dragon King the time he needs to complete his plans. Only
    Baraka knows the truth behind her deception.
    
    
         "I am a creation of sorcery, the hybrid of a Tarkatan warrior
    and the princess of Edenia.  My purpose was to eventually replace
    my...sister... Kitana, from whom I was cloned.  Kitana regained her
    memories, however, and uncovered the plot to supplant her.  After
    Shinnok's invasion, she cast me into her prison, where I remained
    until Baraka freed me."

    -->Fatality 1: Toward - Toward - Down - Down - 1 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Mileena rips off her mouth guard revealing rows of
    long pointy teeth.  Letting out a growl, Mileena jumps onto her
    opponent, and chomps her teeth onto their head.  With a sickening
    rip, she tears the entire head from the shoulders.  She proceeds to
    spit out the head, as her opponent is standing headless with blood
    shooting from their neck.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Up - Up - Toward - Toward - 3 (Far)
    
         Description: Mileena reaches behind her back and pulls out the
    two infamous sais.  She proceeds to toss each one up into the air.
    As they are coming down, she kicks them at her opponent.  The sais
    rocket toward her beaten opponent and violently lodge themselves
    directly into his/her chest.  The opponent falls to their knees
    whilst blood shoots everywhere; eventually, they fall onto their
    back, dead.  Mileena celebrates with a victory pose and bow.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Back - Down - Toward - Back - 1
    
         Description: Mileena pulls out both her sais and with minimal
    hesitation stabs herself on either side of the head.  With the sais
    sticking out, and blood shooting everywhere, Mileena lets out a few
    moans as she falls face first to the ground in a pool of her own
    blood.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       Because it is widely believed that Princess Kitana had slain her
    many years ago, none were suspicious of the veil Mileena wore to
    conceal her Tarkatan features.  It was not difficult for her to
    assume the identity of the princess and take control of her
    alliance.  To further conceal her deception, Mileena gave command of
    the armies to Bo'Rai Cho and instructed him to lead the attack
    against Baraka's diversionary forces.
       Baraka's militia had failed to divert the enemy, and to her
    surprise, was decimated by Bo'Rai Cho's forces.  She then realized
    that she was in control of the most powerful military force in
    Outworld and Edenia combined...  She had finally achieved her true
    purpose, her destiny.  Mileena could not continue her charade
    indefinitely-not as long as Baraka knew the truth.  She ambushed him
    in the ancient Beetle Lair and fed him to a swarm of flesh-eating
    insects.  All hail Princess...Kitana.

    >Throw Description: Baraka turns his opponent around and plants his
    knee hard into their back.  Before they know what hit them Baraka
    jumps into the air with his knee still firmly planted in the small
    of their back.  They both hit the ground hard as Baraka does a
    reverse somersault away from his foe.
    
         Description: Baraka looks just as ugly as he did the last time
    we saw him (Mortal Kombat Gold).  He has the same pointy ears, the
    same bald head, the same long, sharp teeth and the same massive
    blades protruding from his forearms.  He wears what resembles a
    catcher's overthrow, with what looks like a spinal cord acting as
    suspenders of sorts.  On the back of his upper attire, is a
    mysterious symbol in yellow/gold (the symbol of his race perhaps?).
    Part of this attire has clothing that flaps down in front of his
    legs.  He wears baggy red pants along with metal knee pads.  He also
    fights on silver metal boots.
    
         Alternate Costume: Baraka is still ugly, still has the same
    pointy teeth, but his bald head has little spikes protruding from
    the back.  He wears a sliver and red "shirt" with the sleeves cut
    off.  On his shoulders are silver shoulder guards that attach to his
    upper forearm.  He wears a silver and red belt with a shiny generic
    belt buckle.  A little black and silver flap hangs between his legs
    and moves about as he fights; the back of the flap has red and
    silver symbols adorning it.  He wears black pants over silver and
    black shoes; above his shoes are silver/metal shin guards that run
    up to his knee caps.
    
    
               Story:
    
         Baraka's Tarkatan race is a mutated hybrid of Netherrealm and

    master, the dragon king, by preoccupying Outworld opposition with
    his Tarkatan hordes, the backbone of the Dragon King's terrifying
    army.
    
         "I am of the Tarkata, a savage race of nomadic warriors bred
    from denizens of Outworld and demons of the Netherrealm.  My kind
    have served many masters: Shao Kahn, Shang Tsung, Quan Chi...  All
    have fallen.  All have been weak.  But our new master is strong!
    Invincible!  We will slay all who oppose him!  We will follow him to
    blood victory!"

         Description: Baraka uses his blades to slice open his fallen
    opponent's stomach spilling blood.  He proceeds to slice off both of
    their arms.  As his opponent is standing there with blood squirting
    from their arm sockets, Baraka then impales them in the stomach with
    both blades, ripping off their entire torso.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Toward - Down - Back - Toward - 2 (Sweep)
    
         Description: In one swift motion Baraka uppercuts his
    opponent's head off high into the air.  As the head is falling back
    to Earth, Baraka shoots out his right blade and the head gets
    impaled on the sharp instrument of pain.  Baraka holds his trophy
    high as his opponent, headless and squirting blood from the neck
    falls lifelessly to the ground.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Down - Back - Up - Back - 4

    lifeless falls to its knees then to the ground.  He lays there
    facedown with blood shooting and spilling from his neck.

    betrayal. Baraka's warriors brought word that she had agreed to meet
    with him in an ancient lair, but Baraka was no fool... He sent
    another in his place...

    >Throw Description: Sub-Zero grabs his opponent by the neck and
    bends them over backward.  As they are helplessly resting against
    his knee, he proceeds to elbow them viciously in the stomach twice.
    Sub then proceeds to flip them over face first into the ground.
    
         Description: Sub-Zero looks almost completely different than he
    did in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.  He now wears a helmet that
    more than closely resembles the helmet worn by Shredder of Teenage
    Mutant Ninja Turtle fame.  It is silver and black, and has the same
    design as Shredder's helmet.  He wears a light blue vest, with metal
    shoulder pads adorned with symbols.  Under this vest is a set of
    chain mail.  He also has darker blue forearm bands, and blue and
    black gloves.  He wears a dark blue and black belt, with a belt
    buckle.  More chain mail hangs between his legs, falling near his
    thighs.  His pants are very dark and baggy, they also have symbols
    on the thigh portions.  He fights wearing dark boots as most of the
    other fighters do.
    
    Alternate Costume: Sub-Zero's alternate costume is MUCH different
    that his regular one in that he seems to have aged a lot!  He is
    completely bald except for a gray ponytail at the back of his head.
    He still wears his trademark blue mouth guard that covers everything
    from the tip of his nose down.  He wears a blue and black long
    sleeve shirt with silver plating over his stomach.  His shoulders
    are covered with a silver symbol and he wears blue wrist guards.
    His belt is blue and silver and has a circular buckle.  He also has
    a blue and silver flap that hangs in front of his legs; some of the
    metal plating extends into the flap.  He wears semi-baggy black
    pants over dark pseudo boots.
    
              Story:
    
         While still in Outworld, the Lin Kuei Grand Master, Sub-Zero,
    discovers his true heritage -- the source of his mastery over cold.
    This discovery will aid him in the fight against the Dragon King's
    Tarkatan hordes.
    
         "My fellow Lin Kuei, Frost, had betrayed me and stolen my
    Dragon Medallion.  Unable to control the medallion's power, she was
    consumed by her own freezing ability.  I searched Outworld for a
    suitable place to bury her remains when I happened upon ancient
    ruins carved into a mountainside."

    -->Fatality 1: Toward - Back - Down - Toward - 2 (Close)
    
         Description: Sub-Zero spins away from his opponent "summoning"
    ice all the way.  When he is about a half screen lengths away, he
    begins to freeze his opponent solid; their entire body is encased in
    ice.  With his foe standing there frozen and lifeless, Sub-Zero
    walks up and twists off their frozen head with a bloody rip.  He
    then ice slides away and hurls their frozen head at the rest of
    their body shattering it into a pile of blood and pieces of ice.
    Zero celebrates by pumping both fists into the air.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Back - Down - Toward - Down - 1 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Sub-Zero freezes his opponent's entire bottom
    half; from their legs down.  While they are "standing" there
    helpless, Zero proceeds to sweep out their frozen legs, completely
    obliterating them.  His legless opponent begins crawling backwards
    using only their hands.  Sub-Zero follows then and violently stomps
    onto their stomach exploding his opponent's head.  With his
    opponent, headless, legless and shooting blood everywhere, Sub-Zero
    pumps his fist in satisfaction.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Down - Up - Down - Up - 2
    
         Description: Sub-Zero fully encases himself in ice; his arms
    outstretched like he is going to be crucified.  After a moment's
    hesitation, he falls forward shattering his frozen self into pieces
    of ice and blood.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       On his way to the rendezvous point with Raiden and the others,
    Sub-Zero was ambushed by a band of Tarkatan warriors in the Living
    Forest.  He tried to outrun them, but there were too many.  He was
    quickly surrounded.  Sub-Zero decided that his last living deed
    would be to vanquish as many of these barbarians as he could before
    he succumbed to death.
       As Sub-Zero began his attack, he felt his armor speak to him.  It
    guided and strengthened each blow as he broke their limbs and
    crushed their skulls.  At his feet, a dying Tarkatan warrior uttered
    the words, "Long live the Dragon King..."

    >Throw Description: Kabal turns his opponent around and knees them
    hard in the small of their back.  Kabal then grabs his foe by the
    shoulders and violently throws them face first into the ground
    behind him.
    
         Description: Kabal looks very similar to when we saw him last.
    His trademark respirator is intact as is his light brown trench
    coat.  Kabal has some sort of device at his hip where his respirator
    connects.  He wears a dark colored sleeveless vest over a dark
    shirt.  His arms are bare and he wears black gloves on both hands.
    On his right shoulder is another device presumably powering his
    respirator; it also has an antenna sticking out.  He wears baggy
    light brown colored pants with silver and black kneepads.  He wears
    silver steel-toed boots.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Kabal's alternate costume reminds me of
    Voldo from Soul Calibur for some reason.  Anyway, his mask is a bit
    redone looking more like Noob's mask.  It is black and silver with
    various protrusions all throughout the top.  Kabal still has his
    trademark ponytail stick out the back.  He wears a thick silver
    "collar" of sorts around his neck.  On his chest are the black and
    silver straps of the "backpack" he wears on his back.  Underneath
    these straps is a light brown sleeveless shirt.  His arms are bare
    except for an upper forearm guard and black gloves.  He still has
    that weird machine-type thing on his back, complete with lit buttons
    and an antenna.  His shirt comes all the way down in front of his
    legs and flows there as he fights.  He wears dark brown pants with
    small pouches sewn into the sides over black and silver boots; he
    also wears silver and black shin guards that come up to his knees.
    
              Story:
    
         "I had left the Black Dragon and all that it stood for... but to
    some I would forever remain associated with that despicable
    organization. Eventually the Red Dragon clan found me, and I was
    defeated by Mavado. He left me for dead and took my hookswords as
    his trophies. As the life trickled from my body, a stranger rescued
    me: a cleric of Chaos who called himself Havik. He convinced me to
    return my clan to its former glory. Never again will I deny my
    devotion to the Black Dragon."

    -->Fatality 1: Toward - Up - Up - Up - 3 (Close)
    
         Description: Kabal kicks his opponent sending them into a
    frenzied spin.  With his opponent spinning uncontrollably, Kabal
    takes out one of his hookswords.  He starts at the head of his foe
    and slowly lowers his hooksword through the spinning opponent.  As
    he is lowering his hooksword through the whirlwind, his foe's body
    parts are sent flying in all directions until there is nothing left.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Up - Up - Down - Down - 2 (Close)
    
         Description: Kabal takes out one of his hookswords spinning it
    fancily in his hand.  He then proceeds to kick his opponent high
    into the air.  Kabal measures them from the ground and as they fall,
    he swings his hooksword in an upward motion cutting his opponent in
    half at the waist; the torso and legs fall to the ground spurting
    large amounts of blood.  Kabal surveys the carnage he just created
    and celebrates with a victory pose.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Toward - Up - Up - Down - 2
    
         Description: Kabal takes out a Hooksword and proceeds to jam it
    straight into his head.  With the sword imbedded into his skull,
    Kabal falls to the ground gushing blood and no longer breathing.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       Havik had given Kabal's new Black Dragon recruits a task: Lure
    the heroes away from the Dragon King's corpse while he somehow
    retrieved the heart and with it, Onaga's power to raise the dead.
    Apparently Onaga's ancient army had only been invincible by means of
    constant resurrection during battles.
       The power to raise the dead would prove quite useful to the Black
    Dragon clan.  Kabal slew Havik and took the Dragon King's heart for
    himself.  Havik was most impressed.

    >Throw Description: Ermac turns his opponent around, and knees them
    hard in the back sending them airborne.  As his foe falls back to
    Earth, Ermac punches them in a downward motion, causing them to hit
    the ground hard face first.
    
         Description: Ermac resembles more of a Scorpion than a Sub-Zero
    in this game.  You can still tell he is a ninja, just not as easily
    as before (damn palette swaps!).  Ermac wears a black wrap around
    his head and face; it covers his entire head, and his mouth and
    nose.  Only his eyes are showing.  In the middle of this wrap is a
    metal pin.  He wears an all red long-sleeved karate gi.  He then
    wears a large vest over his red uniform.  He wears more wrap around
    his forearms and black gloves.  A piece of the vest hangs down
    around his thighs; his belt buckle is interlocking.  His pants are
    red and baggy and he wears gold and black boots; there is a metal
    portion that runs from the middle of the boot to his knee where
    there is a jewel of some sort.
    
         Alternate Costume: As with his regular costume, Ermac wears a
    black "wrap" around the top of his head with a red symbol in the
    middle of it; his eyes glowing a deep white.  He also wears a black
    mouth guard that covers his nose and everything else down; this
    "guard" extends to his neck as well, completely covering it.  He
    wears what seem like red and black "suspenders" that flow all the
    way down in front of his legs.  His arms are bare except for black
    wrist guards and black gloves.  He wears a colorful belt with an
    exotic buckle.  His pants are red and Ermac wears silver and black
    knee guards over silver and black boots; his shin guards are silver
    and black as well.
    
              Story:
    
         "We are Ermac. We are the fusion of the souls of dead warriors,
    created by Shao Kahn to obey him without question. We served as his
    enforcer for many years, until the Earthrealm warrior Kenshi
    released us from our bondage and awakened out perception of the
    worlds that surrounds us. We are now free to choose our own
    destiny."

    -->Fatality 1: Down - Back - Back - Down - 3 (Sweep)
    
         Description: An updated classic from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.
    As a green glow begins to emanate from Ermac's hand, he levitates
    his opponent high into the air.  Bringing his arm down in a downward
    motion, his opponent violently slams into the ground bloodily.
    Ermac brings his foe back into the air, this time flipping them over
    and slamming them into the ground face first.  Ermac then proceeds
    to raise his opponent even higher into the air this time.  With a
    downward motion, Ermac slams his opponent into the ground for the
    last time; they explode into bloody chunks and pieces of bone.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Back - Down - Back - Down - 4 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Ermac's right hand begins to glow green.  His
    opponent is then lifted into the air surrounded by a green aura.
    Ermac brings both his hands together, and his opponent's body does
    the same, breaking their bones.  Ermac then lifts his opponent
    higher into the air telepathically and spreads out his arms; his
    opponent proceeds to do the same eventually "breaking" into two
    halves which fall to the ground lifeless and squirting blood.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Down - Up - Up - Down - 3
    
         Description: Ermac falls to his knees and quickly slams his
    head into the ground twice; all the while blood begins to pool on
    the ground and drip from his face.  Dazed, Ermac rears his head back
    and slams it into the ground one final time; his head explodes and
    his lifeless body falls to the ground with blood squirting from the
    neck.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       In an outer chamber of the Dragon King's throne room. Ermac did
    battle with Liu Kang's enslaved comrades. Ermac was more that a
    match for the five warriors, but their defeat was not his objective.
    Liu Kang materialized and, one by one, freed their souls while Ermac
    occupied the rest.
       Eventually, all five were awakened from their enchantment and
    freed from Onaga's control. Ermac was pleased that his warrior
    skills could for once bring about a noble outcome. He sensed,
    however, that an ominous force still shaped the destiny of the
    realms. It was everywhere. He cloud feel influence on Onaga, though
    the Dragon King was oblivious to its manipulation. Time was running
    out. Ermac feared the celebration of this latest victory would be
    short-lived.

    tribesmen. I must embrace this corruption, though I will eventually
    become a threat to those I care for. It is a necessary evil if I am
    to save the realms."

         Description: Nightwolf takes out one of his Tomahawks, and
    after doing a little spin, whips the Tomahawk at his opponent.  The
    weapon gets lodged into their head as they fall backward with blood
    shooting out of their head.

         Description: Nightwolf takes out one of his Tomahawks and
    raises it to the sky letting out a battle cry in the process.  In
    one swift motion, Nightwolf swings the Tomahawk and decapitates his
    opponent.  Their head flies into the air, and Wolf catches it in his
    free hand.  He raises both the Tomahawk and head high into the air
    with a victory yell as his headless opponent falls face first to the
    ground squirting all kinds of blood.

    prepares himself with arms open.  The Tomahawk falls straight into
    Wolf's chest as he falls backward having killed himself.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       Nightwolf had traversed realms and fought many demons to get to
    this place deep within the Netherrealm. Using knowledge passed to
    him form his forefathers, he drew a binding symbol on the ground and
    chanted the ancient words that would draw the spirit of the Dragon
    Kong to this wicked place.
       Nightwolf had carried the burden long enough. He released the
    sins of his people into the mystic symbol, and their weight bound
    Onaga to the Netherrealm. Free of the corruption he had harbored for
    so long, Nightwolf was expelled from the depths of the Netherrealm
    and into the unknown.

    the ground face first.

    Bo'Rai Cho. Although his fight against the Tarkatan hordes does not
    go well, he will find inspiration from an unexpected source.
    
         "I have dealt with Tarkatan warriors before. Baraka and his
    mutant thugs were easy to evade as I entered Shang Tsung's palace to
    rescue Li Mei. I had arrived not a moment too soon. I snatched her
    away from the Deadly Alliance and swiftly carried her to safety. An
    alarm was sounded, and hordes of Tarkatan warriors pursued us across

         Description: Bo'Rai Cho reaches behind his back and pulls out
    an enormous torch/match along with his patented drink bottle.  Cho
    then strikes the match to the ground lighting it.  He then puts his
    head back and chugs his drink.  Cho then holds out the match in
    front of him and blows his alcoholic (and flammable) liquid at his
    opponent.  This huge flame causing his foe to melt into a pile of
    mushy skin and blood.  Cho then looks at the camera, shrugs and
    continues to drink from his bottle.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Up - Back - Toward - 3 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Bo'Rai Cho again takes out an enormous match.  He
    strikes it up on the ground and this time turns around and farts
    directly into the flame.  This action causes a huge green "flame" to
    sear across the screen completing engulfing his adversary.  As they
    are engulfed in this gas flame, they just fall to the ground dead.
    Cho then looks at the camera and swats in front of his nose before
    saying, "Ohhh, that's a stinky one."
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Back - Back - Toward - Toward - 2
    
         Description: Bo'Rai Cho outstretches his arms and legs, and
    with a look of surprise on his face, he begins to inflate.  His
    arms, legs and head all inflate to incredible size, before
    completely exploding into a mess of blood and body parts.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       Onaga seemed invincible.  The races of Outworld were in
    disagreement on how to deal with this threat, and Baraka's hordes
    were sweeping the land. Bo'Rai Cho had almost given up hope when he
    was visited by the spirit of his greatest student, Liu Kang.  Their
    roles now reversed, Liu Kang gave Bo'Rai Cho the inspiration
    necessary to continue the fight.
       Bo'Rai Cho's soul was invigorated! He met with Outworld's many
    leaders to forge a temporary truce.  Kitana gave him command of what
    remained of her army, and he led them to battle against Baraka's
    mutant foot soldiers. The new army of Outworld crushed the Tarkata
    vermin, and Baraka himself was bested by Bo'Rai Cho's attack.  The
    victory inspired the people of Outworld to rise up against the
    Dragon King.

    >Throw Description: Ashrah grabs a hold of her opponent's right arm
    and punches them hard in the gut.  She then kicks them straight in
    the face with an upward motion, before bringing her foot back down
    onto the back of her adversary's head; this action causes them to
    bounce back up into the air after hitting the ground face first.
    
         Description: Ashrah looks like a female Raiden.  She has the
    trademark white hat that she wears much like her male counterpart.
    Her hat however, has a long veil that trails behind it.  Her hair is
    dark and pulled back in a ponytail.  She wears almost all white.
    She has what looks like a white karate gi on with a gold belt.  This
    gi has gold bracelets that twist around her wrists; her hands are
    bare.  She wears a white skirt with Japanese symbols on the right
    side.  Under this skirt are a pair of white karate "pants."  She has
    what look to be white socks or very soft shoes on her feet; gold
    trim snakes its way up her calves.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Ashrah completely gets rid of her Raiden hat
    for her alternate costume.  A portion of her hair is pulled back
    into a ponytail, while the rest is shoulder length.  She wears a
    white karate gi with gold trim, that ends in a sort of skirt attire.
    The chest of this gi is very open and gives a nice look at her
    chest.  Her upper arms are "encased" in a see-through fabric.  He
    wrists have rainbow colored guards around them.  She wears a long
    gold sash that flows along as she fights.  She wears thigh high
    silvery white boots with gold wrappings around her ankles and shins.
    
              Story:
    
         Ashrah is a demon who has discovered a means for escaping the
    Netherrealm...a holy sword. To achieve her goal of purification, she
    must slay powerful evil such as Noob Saibot with the sword. Each
    denizen of the Netherrealm she defeats brings her closer to freedom.
    
         "I am a demon, a denizen of the Netherrealm. For ages, my
    sisters and I have blindly served Quan Chi as members of the
    Brotherhood of Shadow. But I questioned a command given by the
    sorcerer. To set an example, he sent my own sister to slay me.
    During my escape, I discovered a weapon -- a sword -- that seemed to
    be of heavenly origin. With each demonic assassin that has fallen to
    this blade, I have felt a strange exhilaration. It is as if the
    taint of evil is leaving me."

    Her opponent then falls over dead in a puddle of their own blood and
    dismembered limbs.  Ashrah raises the doll in the air and lets out a
    victory laugh.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Toward - Down - Toward - Down - 2 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Ashrah's hands begin to glow bright blue.  She
    then proceeds to bend down and bring her hands back up to her face.
    All the while, her defeated opponent's body is turning the same blue
    as her hands.  With their entire body engulfed in this blue flame,
    they writhe and scream only to slowly fall apart into a pile of
    limbs and blood; the blue glow slowly fades from Ashrah's hands.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Up - Down - Up - Up - 2
    
         Description: Ashrah starts spinning herself incredibly fast
    until a blue "flame" engulfs her body.  Pieces of her body (head,
    arms, legs and torso) proceed to fling out of this blue flame until
    there is nothing left.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       Noob Saibot was not originally a demon, which might explain why
    Ashrah sensed great evil in him: He had to earn his place in the
    Netherrealm. He actually desired to remain there. His companion,
    however, seemed to be having a problem adjusting. Perhaps was some
    good left in the cyborg. Whatever the case, Noob would have to face
    Ashrah alone.
       Ashrah defeated Noob Saibot and finally earned her ascension from
    the Netherrealm. But the sword that made her escape possible did not
    travel with her. I suspect it still remains in the Netherrealm,
    waiting to release another of its denizens from damnation.

    >Throw Description: Dairou grabs his opponent's right arm, holds it
    out and punches it in an upward motion; this causes the arm to
    literally snap and hang loosely.  Dairou then flips his foe over
    onto his/her face.
    
         Description: Dairou is a new character to the Mortal Kombat
    franchise resembling a monk of sorts.  He has very little hair with
    red markings on the top of his head running down the middle; the
    backside of his head has hair growing with a very long ponytail
    swinging behind him as he moves.  He wears a similar costume to
    Scorpion in that a portion of it is metal, while the other half is
    cloth; it is brown in color however, and has shorter sleeves than
    Scorpion's.  He wears a thick belt with a circular belt buckle.  He
    wears all black pants with brown and gold boots.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Dairou's hair is pulled back into a
    ponytail; he has the same red markings on his face as well.  He
    wears a brown and gold sleeveless shirt.  Two straps run up under
    his armpits to his neck.  His arms are bare except for brown arm and
    wrist guards.  In the middle of his chest is a golden medallion.  He
    wears a red sash that hangs in front of his legs as he fights.
    Three tassels, one to his left and right, and one hanging down
    behind him, flow swiftly as the fight wears on.  He wears tight
    brown pants with gold and brown shin guards over gold and light
    brown boots.
    
              Story:
    
         "I was once a member of the Seidan Guard. I believed in the
    power of Order and, lived by this strict codes of my superiors. I
    had saved many lives during my years of service. But when I killed
    an assailant in a fit of rage. I was arrested and sentenced to a
    life of incarceration. For all the good I had done, the event that
    had come to define me was that one riot incited by the resistance."

    {Fatalities:}
    *-----------*
    
    -->Fatality 1: Down - Up - Back - Back - 1 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Dairou goes behind his opponent and proceeds to
    pull on both their arms with his foot firmly planted in their back.
    His foe falls to the ground face first while Dairou continues
    pulling.  As Dairou is violently pulling on his downed adversary's
    arms, their entire upper half literally explodes leaving only their
    legs.  Dairou celebrates this feat with a resounding victory yell.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Down - Down - Back - 3 (Close)
    
         Description: Dairou shoves his opponent on the shoulder making
    them face him.  He then proceeds to rear back both his arms and
    plunge them straight into his foe's chest.  He pulls out two organs
    with bones attached to them.  Dairou then stabs his opponent in both
    eyes with these organs; his opponent claws violently at thin air
    before falling face first in a puddle of their own blood.  Dairou
    celebrates with a victory pose following this gruesome Fatality.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Back - Back - Back - Down - 1
    
         Description: Dairou, in one swift motion, bends his back all
    the way over to the back of his knees with a resounding "crack"
    (kind of resembling a "human pretzel").  All sorts of blood seeps
    out from his entangled mass of limbs.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       Normally, Dairou took no risks and ambushed those he had been
    hired to kill. But in this case, he felt compelled to announce his
    intentions to kill his fellow Guardsman, Hotaru. There still must
    have been some code of honor left in his cynical heart.
          Hotaru was defeated... but before Dairou could reveal who had
    commissioned the attack, Hotaru drew his dying breath.

    >Throw Description: Kobra knees his opponent hard into the back.
    While his opponent is reeling, he brings his knee up and into their
    chest.  After that violent kick, Kobra kicks them high into the air
    only to have his them fall face first into the ground.
    
         Description: Kobra ever so slightly resembles Johnny Cage in
    appearance. The newest recruit of the Black Dragon has shoulder
    length blond hair and he wears a white karate gi with black and gold
    trim; there are symbols all across the front and back of this gi as
    well.  He wears no shirt under his gi, and has a black and gold belt
    holding it together.  He has taped wrists and gloves, and he wears
    dark baggy pants with yellow trim over bare feet.
    
         Alternate Costume: Kobra wears a black and white hooded jacket;
    the hood is pulled up onto his head.  The front of the jacket is
    adorned with various symbols.  His arms are bare except for wrist
    guards and black gloves with gold symbols.  The back of his jacket
    has a huge coiled cobra sewn onto it.  He wears black sweat pants
    with yellow stitching down the side.  He fights on black and gold
    gym shoes.
    
              Story:
    
         Kobra sought to test his kombat skill.  Once he killed his
    first opponent, however, the thrill overtook him and now victory is
    his obsession.  Kabal recognized the potential of Kobra's brutal
    nature and enlisted him into the new Black Dragon.
    
         "I had always wondered if my martial arts training would work
    in an actual fight. I trained in school for years. I was the best in
    my class. But we were never allowed to hurt each other -- REALLY
    hurt each other. How did I know attacks would break an arm? that
    this one would rupture an organ. I prowled the back alleys of New
    York in search of an opportunity to put my skills to the test. I
    needed to know what kombat really was."

         Description: Kobra spins his opponent around so they face him.
    Kobra then plunges his right hand deep into their chest.  He removes
    his hand holding their still beating heart.  With heart in hand,
    Kobra shoves it straight into his opponent's face.  They fall onto
    their back still squirting blood from their chest as Kobra performs
    his victory pose.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Toward - Back - Toward - Toward - 2 (Close)
    
         Description: Kobra spins his opponent around so they face him.
    He then hunches them over and knees them twice in the head.  Kobra
    then backs up a bit allowing his fallen foe to regain their balance.
    Kobra then sizes them up before unleashing a powerful kick that
    sends their head flying high into the air.  Kobra's headless
    adversary hits the ground all the while blood spurts from their
    neck.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Up - Up - Back - Back - 2
    
         Description: Kobra raises his right hand into the air, curling
    his fingers as he goes.  He then plunges it straight into his own
    chest removing his own heart.  Kobra then proceeds to fall face
    first to the ground starting at his extracted heart all the way
    down.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       Kabal brought his new recruits to Outworld, where a siege was
    underway against the Dragon King. Kobra grew impatient. He wanted to
    join the fray, but Kabal held him back. They were not to attack
    until the heroes had won.
       Once the Dragon King had been defeated, Kabal gave the order to
    strike the victors. The new Black Dragon tore through their ranks
    and left no survivors. Kobra began to realize he was going to like
    being a Black Dragon.

    >Throw Description: Darrius picks his opponent up in powerbomb
    position before violently bringing them down, back first, onto his
    shoulder.  He then throws them to the ground face first.
    
         Description: Darrius is the only African American character in
    Mortal Kombat: Deception.  I guess he is just replacing Jax who is
    missing in action.  Darrius is bald, has a goatee and wears
    sunglasses while he fights.  He wears a gold and black vest with
    sleeves that stop at his elbows; the collar of this vest covers his
    neck.  He wears black gloves on his hands and dons baggy blue pants.
    These blue pants are over his huge yellow boots that have shin
    guards attached to them.
    
         Alternate Costume: Darrius sports a pseudo afro with bright
    sunglasses in his alternate costume.  He wears no shirt and his arms
    have brightly colored wrist guards and black gloves equipped.  He
    wears baggy bright orange karate pants with a long black belt
    holding them up.  There is a strange pattern running down the sides
    of his pants.  He fights on dark shoes.
    
              Story:
    
         Leader of the resistance in the Realm of Order, Darrius lives a
    life in the shadows.  His ambition is to overthrow the oppressive
    regime that strangles freedom.  To some he is a hero...but to others
    he is nothing more than a terrorist.
    
         "I am Darrius. There are many in the Realm of Order who would
    call me a terrorist. But to the true patriots of Seidan, I am a
    hero. I fight against the rule of an oppressive regime. I am the
    leader of the resistance movement. Out number are ever-growing. One
    day I will lead the charge against the establishment. Until then, I
    wait... and plan... and scheme."

    -->Fatality 1: Up - Down - Back - Toward - 3 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Darrius spins his opponent around so they face
    him.  He then proceeds to rip both of his fallen foe's arms off at
    one time.  He then bashes them twice in the side of their head.
    After this torture, Darrius uppercuts his opponent's head off high
    into the air.  Their armless and headless body slumps to the ground
    in a pool of blood as Darrius holds up both his prizes (arms) and
    lets out a victory yell.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Down - Toward - Toward - Up - 1 (Close)
    
         Description: Darrius walks up to his defeated opponent and
    proceeds to "rearrange" their appendages.  He puts their leg on
    their head, their arm where a leg should go etc.  After admiring his
    handiwork, he kicks them across the screen, rearranged limbs and
    all.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Back - Toward - Toward - 2
    
         Description: Darrius brings both his hands up to his head and
    places them on either side.  With a couple screams, Darrius squeezes
    his head so hard it explodes.  He proceeds to fall backwards whilst
    blood squirts from the hole where his head used to be.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       The mercenary Dairou had succeeded in stealing the Declaration of
    Order and was paid many koins for his efforts. After Darrius hid the
    document, he announced its capture to the world and heralded in a
    new beginning for the realm of Seido.
       As Darrius had predicted, officials were outraged that the
    Resistance had stolen the most prized possession of the Seidan
    government. Hotaru was ordered to lead the charge against them. He
    underestimated their numbers, however, and the Resistance defeated
    him and his men. The senate would soon be in the hands of the
    revolutionaries.

    >Throw Description: Jade grabs her opponent's arms and proceeds to
    fall onto her back tossing her opponent up and over her body.  They
    land hard on their back behind her.
    
         Description: Jade looks almost completely different than the
    last time we saw her in Mortal Kombat Trilogy.  About the only thing
    in common she has with her past appearance is the color scheme of
    green.  Her hair is no longer pulled back behind her head and now
    falls freely upon her shoulders.  She does not wear that green mouth
    guard anymore either.  She wears a green what looks to be drape type
    thing that crisscrosses over her chest.  Her stomach and most of her
    upper torso is exposed.  She wears green gloves and arm bands.  A
    long piece of cloth flows from her midsection almost touching her
    feet.  She also wears thigh high green boots with green knee pads;
    her boots are golden-toed.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Jade's alt. Costume strongly resembles her
    attire in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.  She has her hair braided and
    has two separate strands hang on either side of her head.  She wears
    her patented green mouth guard that covers her nose and the rest
    down.  She wears a black choker around her neck with a gold pendant.
    She wears a green, almost bikini-like outfit that criss-crosses over
    her chest.  Her arms are bare except for an arm guard and her green
    gloves.  She wears thigh high green and black boots with shiny green
    knee cap guards.  She fights on black (golden toed) boots.
    
              Story:
    
         Longtime ally of the Edenian crown, Jade witnessed the arrival
    of the Dragon King and raced to Edenia to inform her queen of
    Kitana's fate. She arrived too late, however, for Tanya had already
    imprisoned Queen Sindel and gave the Dragon King access to that
    realm. She freed Sindel and the two escaped to Outworld.
    
         "I had arrived too late.  Kitana and her allies from Earthrealm
    had been slain in an epic battle against the Deadly Alliance.  At
    the least, they had killed many Tarkata before they died.  As I
    knelt beside her, a menacing, dragon-like creature strode across the
    bridge to the palace.  I leapt out of sight and watched as he
    resurrected the dead and ordered them to regroup near the Living
    Forest.  I followed them in secret."

    Fatality 1: Back - Toward - Up - Toward - 1 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Jade holds her staff like a javelin.  She then
    disgustedly hurls the staff into her opponent's head from only a few
    feet away.  With half the staff lodged into her opponent's head and
    half the staff protruding out, Jade grabs onto both sides and
    proceeds to flip over her opponent.  In doing so, Jade also flips
    her opponent over ripping their head off in the process.  Her
    opponent's head is still impaled on the staff.  When Jade lands, she
    holds the staff straight out to her right side as her fallen foe's
    head is stuck there bleeding profusely.
    
    
    Fatality 2: Back - Toward - Toward - Toward - 2 (Close)
    
         Description: Jade raises her staff into the air, and quickly
    runs across in front of her opponent dragging her staff through
    them.  She stops behind them and with her staff still raised high,
    her fallen opponent's upper torso separates from their legs and both
    "pieces" fall to the ground bleeding out.
    
    
    Hari Kari: Toward - Toward - Toward - Back - 2
    
         Description: Jade pulls out one of her boomerangs and whips it
    off screen.  She stands still waiting for the sharp weapon to
    return.  It comes zinging back decapitating Jade in one swift
    motion.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       The traitor Tanya had given the Dragon King the information he
    needed to finish merging the Kamidogu. But before he conquered all
    the realms, Jade would see Tanya dead. Jade had allowed Baraka's
    soldiers to capture her, feigning defeat in battle. As Tanya
    approached her prisoner, Jade waited for the right moment...
       ...and threw a glass orb filled with concentrated Tarkatan
    essence at her. The glass broke, splashing its contents across
    Tanya's body. Baraka and his vile savages worked themselves into an
    uncontrolled frenzy. They perceived Tanya to be a rival male and
    instinctively attacked. I doubt she survived the encounter.

    |Kenshi:|

        Stats:
    
    Origin: Earthrealm

        Tai Chi
        Judo
        Katana
    
    >Throw Description: Kenshi grabs his opponent by the neck, swings
    around to the back of them and jumps into the air smashing his
    opponent face first into the ground.
    
         Description: Kenshi looks very similar to what he looked like
    in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.  He still wears that infamous
    bandanna around his eyes.  Kenshi wears a karate gi under what looks
    to be hard rubber protecting his chest area; its blue and it has a
    criss-cross over his chest.  The collar goes up around his neck and
    he wears gloves, and wrist guards.  He wears black pants with that
    hard rubber protecting his thighs and upper legs.  He wears white
    kneepads and light brown colored boots.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Kenshi's alt. Costume is exactly the same one
    he wore in Deadly Alliance.  Kenshi wears what almost looks like dark
    green and black army camouflage.  He has a strap across his chest with
    an Oriental symbol adorning it.  He wears black pants with red knee
    pads and high, thick boots.  The red bandanna covering Kenshi's eyes is
    his trademark.
    
    
              Story:
    
         The blind swordsman Kenshi was almost killed in Outworld, but
    was saved by the Lin Kuei ninja, Sub-Zero.  As they both make their
    way across Outworld to find the portal to Earthrealm, Kenshi's keen
    senses detect an agent of the Dragon King who shadows their every
    move.
    
         "I lay near death after my fight with the Red Dragon Mavado.
    But the ninja Sub-Zero found me and aided my recovery. As my wounds
    healed, the soul of my ancestors told me of  their return to my
    sword. Their captor, Shang Tsung, was most certainly dead -- though
    I did not know how or by whom. Having no more reasons to remain in
    Outworld, I made a temporary alliance with Sub-Zero, and we began
    our search for a way back to Earthrealm."

    -->Fatality 1: Toward - Toward - Back - Back - 2 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Kenshi takes out his Katana and violently stabs
    his opponent through the chest/neck.  He then waits a second before
    pulling it out and slicing his opponent twice in the upper torso
    region.  He begins his victory pose as his fallen opponent falls in
    half behind him squirting massive amounts of blood.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Up - Toward - Back - Toward - 2 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Kenshi's hands start to glow a faint purple.  As
    he slowly raises his hands into the air, his opponent begins to
    levitate.  Kenshi then begins to slowly spread his arms out to his
    sides as his opponent is being stretched in this way too.  After a
    few cracking sounds, they are "broken" in half and their upper torso
    and legs fall to the ground.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Down - Back - Back - Toward - 4
    
         Description: Kenshi takes out his Katana, gets on his knees and
    begins to slice open his right side.  After massive amounts of blood
    spillage, Kenshi falls face first to the ground in a pool of his own
    blood.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       As Sub-Zero and Kenshi trekked across Outworld, they strove to
    keep themselves hidden, only traveling at night. But was they neared
    the portal to Earthrealm, the Dragon King zealot Hotaru attacked
    with a blast of glowing energy that temporarily blinded Sub-Zero.
       Kenshi's sense of sight is of a spiritual nature, thus he was
    unaffected by the intense flash of Hotaru's projectile attack. In
    the dark, Kenshi had the advantage. Hotaru did not see his approach.
    Unaware, he strode in to kill Sub-Zero. It was the last mistake he'd
    ever made.

    >Throw Description: Sindel plants her left boot firmly in the chest
    of her opponent.  After a second, and with her boot still in her
    foe's chest, she proceeds to jump into the air kicking her opponent
    square in the face with her right boot.  Sindel flips in the air and
    lands on her feet.
    
         Description: Sindel, much like the other returning kombatants
    from the Mortal Kombat 3 series, looks much like she did in previous
    games.  She still has her trademark long, white and black hair.  She
    wears a suit similar to Mileena's where it looks like a vest and
    reveals a lot of her chest.  It hooks around her neck with a little
    gold piece in the middle.  Her "vest" is gold and purple, and covers
    most of her upper body.  On her wrists/hands she wears purple gloves
    that go up to her elbows.  She wears very high boots that go all the
    way up her thighs.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Sindel's hair is pulled back into a
    ponytail; atop her head is a gold crown (hence the "Queen" in her
    name).  She wears a dark purple long sleeve shirt with a very
    revealing chest opening.  She has a weird shaped red and black piece
    of cloth hanging behind her as she fights.  Her arms are adorned
    with red widgets.  She wears thigh high boots that connect to her
    "shirt."  She fights on purple boots.
    
              Story:
    
         A new threat has put Queen Sindel's realm of Edenia in peril.
    With the aid of her faithful ally Jade, she will travel to Outworld
    to defeat the Dragon King and free her daughter Kitana from his
    control.
    
         "Once again Edenia had been invaded by an Outworld threat.  The
    Dragon King flooded this realm with Tarkatan warriors and held me
    captive in my own prison.  My only daughter, Kitana, had somehow
    become his slave and guarded be night and day.  I remained captive,
    for I could not bring myself to assault her, even to regain my
    freedom.  Thank the Elder Gods Jade did not share my apprehension."

    -->Fatality 1: Back - Toward - Toward - Back - 1 (Sweep)
    
         Description: An updated Mortal Kombat 3 classic.  Sindel begins
    to scream as loud as she can at her opponent (the sound waves can
    even be seen!).  Her opponent's arms begin to tear away and fly off-
    screen followed by their arms and head.  Their torso can't withstand
    the incredible force either and explodes into a bloody mess of
    flesh.  Sindel floats there happy with her accomplishment.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Up - Up - Back - Toward - 3 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Sindel takes out her Kwan Do and proceeds to
    "uppercut" her opponent into the air with it.  As they are coming
    down, Sindel lifts the Do above her head and spins it fast like a
    helicopter.  Her opponent falls onto this whirlwind of death and
    pieces of their body begin being cut apart until there is nothing
    left.  Sindel performs a Kwan Do celebration following this gruesome
    Fatality.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Toward - Up - Up - Down - 4
    
         Description: Sindel jumps very high into the air looking like
    she is going to do a back flip.  Instead of trying to land on her
    feet, Sindel contorts her body so she is completely vertical with
    her head looking to the ground.  She then lands very hard on her
    head and neck area breaking it.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       Although Onaga had returned from the dead, he did not re-inhabit
    his original body. Sindel and Jade found his sarcophagus opened. His
    body remained, but the armor was missing. Strangely, the
    hieroglyphics in his tomb were similar to an ancient Edenian
    language. She discovered an incantation, inscribed by Onaga's holy
    men, that was intended to transport his soul back into its original
    body. As she was memorizing the spell, Onaga emerged from the
    shadows
       Onaga could have defeated both Jade and Sindel, but instead he
    took sadistic pleasure unleashing Kitana against them. He was a
    fool. Jade held off Kitana while Sindel thrust her Kwan Dao into the
    heart of the corpse. As she screamed the ancient incantation,
    Onaga's soul leapt from Reptile's body into its intended vessel. The
    corpse came to life and cried in agony as the Kwan Dao prevented its
    heart from reforming. Sindel held the blade firmly in place as Onaga
    returned to the cold sleep of death.
       With the Dragon King defeated, the realms were safe and Sindel's
    daughter, Kitana was free from his spell. May Edenia know peace once
    more.

         Stats:
    
    Origin: Realm of Chaos
    Alignment: Neutral

    Fighting Styles:
    
        Snake
        Tang Soo Do
        Morning Star
    
    >Throw Description: Havik turns his opponent around and kicks the
    back of his opponent's right knee cracking it.  He then high kicks
    his opponent in the chest causing them to hit the ground so hard,
    they bounce back into the air.
    
         Description: Havik resembles a sort of zombie with his green
    decaying flesh.  He wears a battle helmet that covers his entire
    head except for his face; his hair sticks out the back in a
    ponytail.  He wears armor that covers only the left side of his
    chest.  His left arm is covered in a blue sleeve, while his right
    arm only has an armband and glove.  He wears baggy pants with a blue
    sash over metal plated boots that go up to his knees.
    
         Alternate Costume: Havik wears a black hood on his head,
    covering his hideous face.  He wears a dark purple shirt under that
    with red thick "suspenders."  He also wears silver/metal arm guards
    and red and black gloves.  He wears a thick red sash and has a red
    and black flap in front of his legs.  He wears baggy dark purple
    pants over silver and black boots.
    
              Story:
    
         A cleric of chaos, Havik strives to bring disorder to the
    universe.  He will ally himself with anyone who opposes order and
    structure.  He has influenced many realms, but his ultimate goal is
    to bring the doom of Seido, the realm of Order.
    
         "Chaos. The universe thrives on it. Forces pitted against each
    other in never-ending turmoil. My kind worships entropy. We wander
    the realms sowing disorder. My latest sojourn had brought me to Lei
    Chen, an Outworld city imprisoned by the one known as Hotaru. For
    many years he had kept Chaos at bay beyond the outer walls. I would
    undo the Order he had fought so hard to maintain."

    -->Fatality 1: Down - Toward - Toward - Up - 4 (Close)
    
         Description: Havik turns his opponent around so they face him.
    He then proceeds to rip off their left leg in one swift move.  As
    his foe is standing there hopping on one leg, Havik rears their
    severed leg back, and like a baseball bat, swings it at their head.
    His fallen adversary's noggin is knocked up and off-screen.  Their
    legless and headless body slumps to the ground, while Havik raises
    their leg into the air before dropping it in disgust.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Toward - Toward - Toward - Back - 2 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Havik turns toward the camera and lets out a
    menacing growl.  He then proceeds to completely devour both of his
    opponent's arms.  As they fall over from loss of blood, Havik begins
    to cough up blood and excess bone from the two arms he just ate.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Toward - Up - Up - Up - 2
    
         Description: Havik wraps both of his hands around his head and
    proceeds to tear it off.  He then holds it out in front of him
    straight into the camera before falling face first to the ground;
    all the while blood spills from his neck.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       The others had defeated the Dragon King, but left his broken body
    unattended on the floor of his throne room. Not long ago, a similar
    fate had befallen his former advisor, Shao Kahn. Havik ripped the
    still-warm heart from the carcass and consumed it, thus absorbing
    Onaga's power to reanimate the dead.
       Had the Dragon King succeeded in his plans for total domination,
    the never-ending turmoil of life would have come to a stifling halt.
    Those who defeated him believed that the realms were at rest once
    more, but Havik had vowed to restore the Chaos that had once ravaged
    Outworld. Shao Kahn would rule again!

         Jujutsu
         Staff
    
    >Throw Description: Raiden picks up his opponent with both hands and
    proceeds to electrocute them violently.  After a couple seconds,
    Raiden just kicks them away.
    
         Description: Raiden looks almost identical to what he looked like
    in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.  Raiden is wearing a huge white and
    bluish/green robe.  He has two symbols on his shoulders, as well as a
    big red sash belt.  He has a flap that flows in front of him, and his
    pants of white.  His hat rests on his head, and he also has a massive
    cape attached to his back.  Electricity runs up and down his entire
    body.  He looks a bit darker in this game almost as if he was burned
    (remember the opening FMV?)
    
         Alternate Costume: Raiden goes hat-less in his alt. costume
    instead putting his hair into a bun and letting the rest fall onto
    his shoulders; his hat actually is "attached" to his back.  He wears
    a black karate gi that covers the left side of his upper torso, the
    other half is bare chest.  A thick band of spheres runs across his
    chest that connects to the hat on his back.  He has a sword attached
    to his left side with a thick black and gold belt holding up his
    fighting pants.  His black baggy pants are over his sandals he
    wears.
    
              Story:
    
         As a last resort against the Dragon King's advance, Raiden
    sacrificed himself by releasing his godlike essence; thereby
    creating an intense ethereal blast. The Dragon King was unaffected
    and continues to threaten the realms.
    
         "I was well aware of Onaga, the former ruler of Outworld. Shao
    Kahn had been his advisor until he poisoned the Dragon King and
    stole Outworld for himself. But Onaga had somehow returned, more
    powerful than before. His power seemed augmented by a force previous
    exhibited only by the Elder Gods. Even the might of the Deadly
    Alliance combined with my own could not defeat him. I did the only
    thing I could: I released my godlike essence in an attempt to
    destroy them all."

    Fatality 1: Back - Down - Toward - Down - 1 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Raiden spins away from his opponent, all the while
    summoning a huge bolt of electricity.  Raiden proceeds to shoot this
    bolt at his opponent thus causing his foe and himself to completely
    explode in a mess of bone, blood and charred flesh.  All that is
    left of Raiden is a couple small electricity bolts in mid-air that
    quickly fade.
    
    
    Fatality 2: Up - Down - Toward - Toward - 1 (Far)
    
         Description: Raiden raises his right hand into the air causing
    electricity to begin flowing through him.  Raiden then extends his
    left hand toward his opponent while his right arm is still
    channeling this electricity.  After a second or two, a huge stream
    of electricity is shot directly at his foe.  Moments later, they
    explode into bone and blood.
    
    
    Hari Kari: Toward - Up - Up - Back - 1
    
         Description: Raiden channels a ball of electricity in his

    and bones.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       My patience for mortals has worn thin. If I am to protect
    Earthrealm. I must punish those who would threaten it. The fools
    Shujinko had let himself be deceived into believing that he worked
    for a greater good. He was in fact an unknowing tool for a greater
    evil-one that had almost caused the destruction of Earthrealm.
       That Shujinko undid his mistake and destroyed the Dragon King is
    of no importance. Those who place Earthrealm in harm's way will pay
    with their lives.

    onto their back.  Holding onto their shoulders, Li Mei proceeds to
    rear her legs back and violently kick her foe in the back of the
    head causing them to slide face first along the ground.
    
         Description: Li Mei looks pretty similar to what she did in
    Deadly Alliance.  She now wears a purple hat on her head; she also
    wears a black necklace with a gold pendant around her neck.  She
    wears bits and pieces of armor on her upper arms, forearms, and
    hands.  Her chest is also covered in metal albeit not a lot.  She
    wears what looks to be purple bikini bottom type "shorts."  She also
    wears thigh high purple and black boots.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Li Mei wears a pretty big and thick silver
    helmet in her alt. costume.  She wears dark purple sleeves that have
    silver and black armor covering her shoulders.  She also has silver
    wrist guards.  Her chest is bare except for metal plating covering
    her genitalia and upper thighs.  She has a purple sash hanging in
    front of her legs.  Her pants are dark purple as well and she wears
    silver boots with silver shin guard armor.
    
              Story:
    
         Emerging as the victor of Shang Tsung and Quan Chi's fake
    tournament, Li Mei fell victim to their evil plans and her soul was
    transplanted into the mummified remains of an ancient soldier.
    Although rescued from this fate by master Bo'Rai Cho, Li Mei has
    been tainted by the warrior corpse her soul temporarily inhabited.
    
         "I had entered the tournament held by the Deadly Alliance in
    hopes of winning the freedom of my enslaved town - I was a naive
    fool. Shang Tsung and Quan Chi had no intention of rewarding a
    victor. Instead they prepared to transplant my soul into the last
    remaining corpse of Onaga's ancient army. Had it not been for the
    surprise intervention of Master Bo'Rai Cho, I would have become a
    servant of evil."

    -->Fatality 1: Toward - Toward - Toward - Toward - 1 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Li Mei spins her opponent around so they face her.
    She then nonchalantly walks up to her foe and begins unleashing very
    quick right and left hand punches to their face and chest.  Li Mei
    then walks away and watches as her stunned opponent explodes in a
    mess of blood and bone.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Up - Back - Toward - Toward - 4 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Li Mei walks up to her opponent and with one swift
    kick, knocks her foe's head straight into the air.  Li Mei patiently
    waits for it to come back down before she kicks it hard at her
    opponent.  When the head strikes them, they explode into piles of
    blood and bone.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Up - Down - Up - Down - 3
    
         Description: Li Mei takes out her Kun Lun Dao and tosses it
    high into the air.  As it is falling, Mei bends over sticking her
    head/neck out.  The Dao slices through her head easily as Li Mei
    falls to the ground, headless, with her butt sticking in the air.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       An Alliance had been formed of warriors from vastly different
    origins, but with a similar goal: to defeat Onaga. Li Mei marched
    uneasily into battle against the Dragon King. The closer she got to
    him, the more she came to understand which side was truly deserving
    of victory. Li Mei turned on her former allies and gave emperor the
    time he needed to finish merging the Kamidogu.
       The Dragon King now all powerful. He had the means to control the
    universe, to make and unmake as he saw fit. Li Mei watched in
    delight as the Elder Gods fled before his might. Onaga then
    transformed her into his queen, to be forever at his side. He had
    given her powers beyond anything she has ever imagined. Together
    they will rule the One Realm and slay the last of the Elder Gods.

    >Throw Description: Noob grabs onto his opponent's shoulders and
    jumps up and over them throwing them hard face first into the
    ground.  Smoke grabs his opponent by the neck and slams them face
    first into his knee stunning his foe.
    
         Description: Noob-Smoke is two characters in one.  Noob looks
    almost exactly as he did last time we saw him in Mortal Kombat
    Trilogy.  He is all black with a Scorpion-like mouth guard.  His
    eyes are completely white and he wears a vest with buckles across
    the front.  His pants are completely black over black boots and shin
    pads.  Smoke looks pretty similar to what he did in Mortal Kombat 3,
    but not entirely.  He is no longer cybernetic, well, at least not
    totally.  He still wears a metal helmet with glowing red eyes; the
    helmet resembles Sub-Zero's in a way.  The rest of his body looks
    cybernetic.  He wears black and silver "pants" over black, silver,
    and gray boots.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Noob's alt. costume is his costume of old
    pretty much.  That is to say, he is completely black.  Nothing
    special about that except that his eyes glow a deep blue.  Smoke's
    alt. costume has him wearing a metal silver and black mask.  His
    head, upper torso, and arms are completely "made out of" smoke.  He
    wears silver and black straps over both shoulders and black gloves.
    He wears a black belt with silver buckle over black pants with
    silver knee pads; his pants have slits on the sides revealing the
    smoke underneath.  He fights on black, silver and white boots.
    
              Story:
    
         A member of the Brotherhood of Shadows, Noob Saibot found
    himself in Outworld when Quan Chi was defeated.  No longer bound to
    any master, he has begun his own campaign of domination.  His first
    ally with be the cyborg ninja Smoke, whom he discovered in the
    bowels of Shao Kahn's fortress, and has reprogrammed to be used as a
    seed for a new form of cyborg.
    
         "Under Shao Kahn's rule, I hunted enemies of his throne. As a
    member of the Brotherhood of Shadow, I did Quan Chi's bidding. All
    the while serving Shinnok, Lord of the Netherrealm, as well. Now all
    my masters are gone; I am at long last free to pursue my own
    destiny. Outworld is where I will begin my ascension to power. Now
    is the time to forge a legion of assassins loyal only to Noob
    Saibot."

    *You must be Noob in order to perform this Fatality*
    
         Description: Noob takes out a handful of shurikens.  He
    proceeds to whip them at his opponent; they are impaled in the arm,
    face, and legs.  After that, Noob takes the remaining ninja stars
    and whips all of them at one straight at his foe's face.  His
    adversary falls over with about 20 ninja stars sticking out of their
    face.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Up - Down - Down - Toward - 2 (Sweep)
    *You must be Smoke in order to perform this Fatality*
    
         Description: Smoke makes himself invisible.  His opponent is
    then punched/kicked in the head dazing them.  All of a sudden both
    of his foe's arms are ripped off, shortly followed by his/her head.
    His adversary falls onto their back dead, as Smoke reappears in a
    cloud of smoke.

         Description: Noob takes out his shurikens and tosses about 5 of
    them into the air.  Noob stares up at them as they fall back into
    his face.
         Description: Smoke taps a few buttons on his right arm panel.
    Seconds later beeps are heard and Smoke explodes.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       With Smoke as his template. Noob Saibot planned to return to the
    Netherrealm and use Smoke's nanotechnology to create an army of
    cyborg demons. He was unaware that they were followed by someone
    Noob had not seen since before he become a wraith. Smoke instantly
    recognized their visitor. He was an echo of their past. He was Sub-
    Zero. Noob Saibot's brother.
       Noob Saibot was surprised to see how much stronger his brother
    had become. If he were still Lin Kuei, still human, he would
    probably have shown some degree of pride. But, as Raiden had
    revealed during the ordeal with Shinnok's amulet, his soul had
    become tainted when he died at the hands of Scorpion, Noob Saibot,
    the original Sub-Zero, had descended into the Netherrealm free from
    compassion. He ordered Smoke to assist him in slaying his brother-
    his first act as ruler of the Netherrealm.

    She grabs onto her opponent's shoulders and jumps up and over them
    throwing them hard face first into the ground.
    
         Description: Tanya's Deception costume is very similar to what
    she wore in Mortal Kombat 4.  She still keeps the yellow and black
    color tone throughout, and has the same long, blackish/brown hair.
    What she wears is more like a dress in that it has no sleeves and
    just covers her chest and thigh area; it crisscrosses over the
    middle of her chest revealing a little bit.  She wears black and
    yellow elbow pads, as well as black and yellow gloves.  She also
    wears a black and yellow shawl that she has tied around her waist
    flowing as she fights.  Her legs are completely bare, while wearing
    black and yellow boots that come up to just below her knees.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Tanya has her hair braided and pulled back
    into a long ponytail.  She wears a one piece yellow and black suit
    that connects around her neck; various shapes and symbols adorn her
    one piece suit.  Her left arm has a black and yellow arm guard and
    black and yellow glove.  Her right arm is taped up in black and
    yellow.  She wears black and yellow thigh high boots.  Her shin
    guards are completely black.
    
              Story:
    
         "I had been called an enforcer of the Deadly Alliance. I
    preferred the term "ambassador." It was my duty to impose the will
    of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung upon the denizens of Outworld. But the
    sorcerers' rule was short-lived and I found myself leaderless,
    longing to return to my birthplace in Edenia. When Baraka caught up
    with me, he gave me a choice: Serve his new lord of Outwork - or
    die. I have lived for thousands of years because I make the right
    decisions. I pledged my service to the Dragon King."

       In Edenia, Tanya had located the ancient texts that described the
    process by which to fuse the Kamidogu into one. With this
    information, Onaga was able to create the One Kamidogu - a tool of
    unspeakable power.
       As the Dragon King was distracted, reveling in his victory, Tanya
    seized the opportunity to snatch the Kamidogu from him, thereby
    obtaining god-like power. She destroyed the Dragon King and became
    Ultimate Overlord of the realms.

    >Throw Description: Shunjinko's throw is the same as Havik's.
    Shujinko turns his opponent around and kicks the back of his
    opponent's right knee cracking it.  He then high kicks his opponent
    in the chest causing them to hit the ground so hard, they bounce
    back into the air.
    
         Description: By the time you are allowed to use Shujinko in
    Arcade and Versus Modes, he is an old man.  He has long white hair
    pulled back in a ponytail behind his head.  He has bushy white
    eyebrows, and a long white beard.  He wears a very baggy brown
    karate gi over equally baggy black pants; the gi sways about as he
    fights.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Shujinko is bald and has a three "pronged"
    goatee type facial hair.  He wears a half gray/ half orange baggy
    shirt.  Draped over his chest is what looks like a bid with an Asian
    symbol adorned on it.  His right arm is bare except for a wrist
    guard.  He wears a thin brown sash with a light brown flap hanging
    in front of his legs.  He wears baggy dark pants over black and
    brown boots laced up to his knees.  On his back, Shujinko has
    Scorpion's spear hanging in his belt.
    
              Story:
    
         Long before Liu Kang 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
    many experienced warriors along the way.
    
         "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. Mt ego allowed Onaga, the Dragon
    King, to manipulate me into bringing together the lost Kamidogu.
    They are 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 realm crashing together again... reawakening the One
    Being... unmasking all reality."

         Description: Shujinko tosses up two Dan Tien Dao's and holds
    his arms straight out.  The swords fall, smoothly cutting off both
    his arms.  Shujinko screams in pain and staggers around for a second
    before falling face first to the ground.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       So that I would be able to defend myself during the quest to find
    the Kamidogu. Onaga had given me the power to adsorb 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 villains were
    unaware that they were bringing about their own destruction by
    serving him. I united them, and in one moment, absorbed their
    combined fighting powers.
       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.

    Fighting Styles:

    >Throw Description: Hotaru grabs his opponent by the right arm and
    knees them hard in the back.  He then turns them around and knees
    them in the chest/stomach.  Lastly, Hotaru punches them in the back
    causing them to hit the ground and bounce back up.
    
         Description: Hotaru is a samurai look-alike.  His hair is long
    and white, and he wears it in a bun in the back.  He wears a full
    upper body suit of armor.  The armor is black and gold and covers
    his entire upper torso.  At the shoulder it points up protecting his
    neck.  His arms and hands are also protected by this armor.  Much
    like Yoshimitsu of Soul Calibur, Hotaru has two flags that stick up
    on the back of his armor.  He fights with a red flap dangling in
    front of him; he wears black and gold boots.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Hotaru is still clad in gold and bluish
    black armor.  He wears a helmet now though.  His ponytail is
    sticking out the top and the top of his head is covered.  He wears a
    metal gold mouth guard with two tassels sticking out the side.  The
    rest of his body is clad in this gold metal armor.  His shoulders
    have armor pads as do his wrists.  He has a gold belt hanging in
    front of his legs.  His upper thighs all the way down to his knees
    are covered in this armor.  He wears gold and bluish black boots.
    
              Story:
    
         A hero from the realm of Seido, Hotaru fights to preserve law
    and order. Although his initial sojourn to Outworld was to kombat
    the Emperor Shao Kahn, he has since allied with a ruler he believes
    will bring stability to the realms.
    
         "There is an order to the universe -- law that all of the
    nature must obey. For centuries I have imposed order on those who
    would wreak havoc. Outworld has long been a source of disruption,
    but an older ruler has made a triumphant return. During Onaga's
    rule, his military forced peace throughout his domain. I will see
    that his return brings order to this war-torn realm once more. I
    will fight against the insurgents to clear the path for the Dragon
    King's coming."

         Description: Hotaru grabs a hold of his opponent's right leg
    and flips them up and over his head into the ground.  He then picks
    them up again and slams them hard into the ground on the other side
    of him spilling all sorts of blood.  Hotaru then proceeds to spin
    them on the ground for a second before flipping them over one last
    time; this time they explode into pieces of bone and lots of blood.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Down - Toward - Back - Toward - 2 (Close)
    
         Description: Hotaru kicks his opponent to their knees.  He then
    grabs either side of their head and twists.  With a sickening crack,
    their head turns 180 degrees.  Hotaru repeats this process two more
    times before violently kicking his foe to the ground.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Up - Back - Back - Back - 2
    
         Description: Hotaru wraps his hands around his neck and in one
    swift move, snaps it all the way around so his face is looking
    behind him.  He then falls face first to the ground with a broken
    neck.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       In the wilds of Outworld, Hotaru captured the renegade Earthrealm
    warrior Sub-Zero and brought him before the Dragon King.
       Onaga's judgment of Sub-Zero was swift, and Hotaru was given the
    task of carrying out his punishment: death. His fate served as a
    reminder to all who challenge the authority of the Dragon King.

    ponytail; it flows about messily on her face.  She wears a black

    black knee high boots with silver trim around the shin.
    
    
         Alternate Costume: Kira's red hair is let down and is about
    shoulder length.  She wears a very revealing black and red vest with
    straps around the stomach.  Both her arms are covered with a black

    of her legs.  On her left and right legs are her weapons (the Dragon
    Teeth).  She wears knee high red boots.  She has the Black Dragon
    symbol adorned on the back of her vest.
    
              Story:
    
        Kira is the first recruit of the new Black Dragon. Kabal saw in
    her a calculated ruthlessness that the clan had previously been
    lacking. Kira will help the clan bring the world to its knees, but
    first, she must travel to Outworld to test her might against foes of
    the Dragon King.
    
         "I was the first of Kabal's recruits. I had stolen away to the
    mountains of Afghanistan, selling weapons to the terrorists --
    disguised as a man. When they discovered my gender, I had to fight
    my way out of the cave. I suppose Kabal assumed that any woman who
    could do business wit cutthroat extremist organization and live to
    talk about it must be worthy of his new Black Dragon clan. When I
    alone emerged from the cave, Kabal stood before me with an offer to
    join him."

         Description: Kira walks up to her opponent and takes out her
    Dragon Teeth.  She proceeds to throw one into each foot, making her
    opponent immobile.  She then walks sexily up to her foe, grabs a
    hold of their stomach and violently rips it off before tossing it
    across the screen.

         Description: Kira unsheathes her Dragon Teeth and with a quick

    kick, Kira sends her opponent across the room; in the process of
    being kicked, her opponent loses their head because of her slices
    with the Dragon Teeth.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Toward - Back - Up - Back - 3
    
         Description: Kira pulls out her Dragon Teeth and proceeds to

    falls over dead.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       Once they had defeated the enemies of Havik, Kabal complimented
    Kobra and Kira on their ferocity in battle. Their true test,
    however, was to face each other, to decide which of them was worthy
    of the new Black Dragon clan. Neither refused the challenge.
       Kobra fought with ferocity, but his lack of discipline allowed
    Kira to control the battle, easily manipulating Kobra into exposing
    himself to her attacks. She defeated him, and proved her worth to
    Kabal, who gave her the honor of finding two more recruits to pit
    against each other in Mortal Kombat.

    {Fatalities:}
    *-----------*
    
    -->Fatality 1: Back - Back - Back - Toward - 2 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Liu Kang spins away from his opponent all the
    while a yellow flame is engulfing his hands.  Kang then motions over
    to himself, and what appears to be his opponent's soul floats over
    and into his hands.  Liu then "throws" this fiery mass back at his
    opponent who explodes into piece of bone and lots 'o blood.
    
    
    -->Fatality 2: Toward - Toward - Up - Up - 3 (Sweep)
    
         Description: Liu Kang turns himself into a green mist.  This
    mist then floats up and over his opponent's head before entering
    their body.  A few seconds later, his opponent (with Liu Kang's soul
    inside) pulls off their head revealing Liu Kang's underneath.  Kang
    then bows in front of the camera.
    
    
    -->Hari Kari: Down - Down - Down - Up - 3
    
         Description: Liu Kang outstretches both his arms which begin to
    glow green.  Kang then starts at his legs and waves his arms up his
    entire body.  When he gets to his head, his appendages begin to fall
    off.  All that is left of Kang is a pile of bones and green mist on
    the ground.
    
    
              Ending:
    
       Liu Kang's friends had been freed. Onaga had been defeated, and
    the realms were secure once more. But there was one more battle that
    remained. Liu Kang's body had been used by some unknown force as a
    tool of destruction. It had left death in its wake and needed to be
    stopped. The chaos would end in Earthrealm.
       The fight raged with neither kombatants able to best the other,
    when a jolt of energy crackled through them both. Liu Kang's nerves
    blazed like fire and he felt a rush of air fill his lungs for the
    first time since his death. He was Liu Kang once more: Protector of
    Earthrealm. Champion of Mortal Kombat.

    |X. Boss Strategies|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         Mortal Kombat Deception introduces an entirely new end boss to
    the Mortal Kombat universe.  Onaga, also known as the Dragon King,
    reigns supreme at the end of Arcade Mode.  While Onaga may seem evil
    and intimidating, he can be vanquished with just the right amount of
    patience and timing.  Listed below are some tried and true
    strategies outlining the best methods to vanquish the Dragon King as
    well as various "counters" to his special moves.
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    |Dragon King|
    -~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         To start off, Onaga has about 5 different special attacks.
    These attacks include a wind gust from his wings, a fireball shot
    from his mouth, a breath of fire moving in a vertical sweeping
    pattern coming from his mouth, a ground pound (ala Sheeva) and a
    vicious throw.  The Dragon King can also knock you out of his arena
    and straight onto the spikes that line the walls.  Couple these
    special moves in with his few 3 or 4 hit combos and you have quite a
    menacing boss.  Remember, he is big and slow, so use that to your
    advantage throughout the match.  One more thing, you see those
    pieces of Kamidogu outlining the edges of the arena, if you step
    into one it will break, dazing the Dragon King and allowing a couple
    free hits.  I recommend going with your current character's longest
    Style Branch Combo.  If not that, use weapon combos as they do mucho
    damage and the King has a hard time blocking them for some reason.
         The Dragon King's wind gust move can be quite frustrating to
    detect and therefore dodge or block; it happens so quick.  The King
    mostly uses this move when you are within sweep distance from him.
    So if you are trying to create some room between the two of you, I
    would recommend tapping back, back quickly and then holding the
    Block button.  This tactic should easily counter this move.  If he
    does hit you with it, fear not, as it does minimal damage.
         The fireball that the King can shoot at you is pretty easy to
    dodge or duck under.  He will momentarily rear his head back
    preparing to shoot it.  This is your cue to either duck or block.
    He usually shoots this ball of fire at you when you are at about
    sweep distance away from him.  It is pretty easy to see, and
    shouldn't pose too much of a problem in the grand scheme of things.
         His breath of fire move can be pretty hard to detect, but once
    he begins breathing it, he is stationary; he cannot rotate to hit
    you with the fire.  Once again, he will rear his head back preparing
    for the move.  This is your cue to lay on the Block button as this
    move cannot be ducked.  If you block and are still hit with the
    flames, you will suffer a little more damage than if you blocked one
    of his other basic attacks.  This move is also easily side-stepped
    if timed correctly.
         His Sheeva-like ground pound is easy to anticipate.  The Dragon
    King jumps up into the air, and hovers for a split second, before
    coming back down sending a shockwave at you.  This shockwave causes
    medium amounts of damage and cannot be blocked.  One must jump the
    moment the King lands, or else they will suffer damage.  The Dragon
    King seems to use this move when you are at any proximity in
    relation to him, so constantly be on the lookout for it.
         His last devastating move is his throw.  If you are caught
    blocking right in front of him, the King will just pick you up, jump
    high into the air, hover for a second, and proceed to violently toss
    you back to the ground causing massive damage.  This move cannot be
    read easily, so I do not recommend ever close enough for him to
    execute this damaging move.  Execute your Style Branch Combo, and
    back the hell up as fast as possible.  Once last thing, stay away
    from the arena's edges at all time or risk being impaled on the
    spikes.
         The Dragon King also possesses regular punch and kick attacks
    as well as small 3 or 4 hit combos.  These can be easily blocked as
    they are fairly slow.  The best advice I can give is to STAY as far
    away from him as possible.  The only time you should attempt to
    attack up close is after breaking one of the Kamidogu pieces
    littered throughout the arena.  While he is dazed unleash you
    longest, most damaging combo on him; if not attack him with weapon
    combos.  If you can anticipate his special moves, and break the
    Kamidogu pieces, you shouldn't have much trouble defeating him.
    Good luck!

    |XI. Individual Character Endings|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         Mortal Kombat Deception breaks the mold of Mortal Kombat 4 and
    Mortal Kombat Gold in that its endings are no longer fully rendered FMV
    sequences.  Midway has replaced those masterpieces with photo
    descriptions of how the characters end their role in Deception.  Their
    endings consist of two very detailed 3D photos chronicling the future
    of the kombatants, narrated by an unknown voice.
         Below I will repeat exactly what happens in each character's
    ending, giving photo descriptions as well.  I will also display the
    characters' stories taken from their alternate costumes in the Kontent
    section of MKD. So let's get started.  *SPOILER ALERT* If you do not
    want to know what happens to the characters of Mortal Kombat Deception
    after you have beaten the game, read no further.  Go check out a
    different portion of this FAQ. The last thing I would want to happen is
    that I ruined your favorite character's ending.
    *SPOILER ALERT*
    
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~
    |Scorpion:|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Alternate Costume Story:
         "While in the Void, I witnessed, along with the Elder Gods, the
    death of Raiden and the re-emergence of the Dragon King. Suddenly aware
    of my presence, the Elder Gods transformed me into their servant and
    gave me a new purpose: to prevent the Dragon King from merging the
    realms."
    Ending:
    (A photo of Scorpion  kicking Baraka square in the jaw; blood is
    spurting from Baraka's mouth.  Two Tarkatan warriors and the Dragon
    King look on not quite sure what to do).
       "The Elder Gods had transformed Scorpion into their weapon in order
    to defeat the Dragon King before his plans of domination unmade the
    realms. With enhanced abilities, he tirelessly tracked Onaga through
    the realms until finally he cornered him in the Nexus. The Dragon King
    had many allies, but the were no consequence."
    (A photo of Scorpion literally "jumping" through the Dragon King
    horizontally.  Half his body is inside the King's body while the other
    half is protruding out the other end; blood is everywhere).
       "It was in fact Scorpion who was the true Champion of the Elder
    Gods, the Enforcer of their will. Only he could stop the menace that
    threatened all that exists. Only he could defeat the Dragon King."
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-
    |Mileena:|
    ~-~-~-~-~-
    
    Alternate Costume Story:
         "My hatred for Kitana consumes my every thought. But Baraka tells
    me that his new lord, the Dragon King, has possession of Kitana's body
    and uses it as his personal bodyguard. My only chance for revenge
    against her will be to serve Onaga and pose as the Princess, leading
    her precious alliance of Edenia and Outworld to their doom."
    Ending:
    (A photo of Mileena standing in front of Li Mei and Bo'Rai Cho;
    Mileena is pointing straight at Li Mei.  Li Mei's army stands guard
    in the background).
    
       "Because it was widely believed that Princess Kitana had slain
    her many year ago, none were suspicious of the veil Mileena wore to
    conceal her Tarkatan features. It was not difficult for her to
    assume the identity of the princess and take control of her
    alliance. To further conceal her deception, Mileena gave command of
    the armies to Bo'Rai Cho and instructed him to lead the attack
    against Baraka's diversionary forces."
    
    (A photo of Mileena with her leg extended having just kicked Baraka.
    Baraka is holding the Thoraxe weapon of the Beetle Lair).
    
       "Baraka's militia had failed to divert the enemy. and to her
    surprise, was decimated by Bo'Rai Cho's forces. She then realized
    that she was in control of the most powerful military force in
    Outworld and Edenia combined... She had finally achieved her true
    purpose, her destiny. But Mileena could not continue her charade
    indefinitely -not as long as Baraka knew the truth. She ambushed him
    in the ancient Beetle Lair and fed him to a swarm of flesh-eating
    insects. All hail Princess... Kitana."
    
    
    ~-~-~-~-~
    |Baraka:|
    ~-~-~-~-~
    
    Alternate Costume Story:
         "ONAGA! He has ordered us to ravage Outworld in order to distract
    the foolish allies and give him time to complete his plan. Mileena
    poses as Princess Kitana to confuse and misdirect the enemies of the
    Dragon King. She lies to them and tells them to attack our raiding
    parties. But our Lord will be nowhere near us. We draw their armies
    from him. When my master's will is done, they will all be consumed!"
    Ending:
    (A photo of Baraka standing in the middle of the Living Forest.  An
    Tarkatan warrior is bowing at Baraka's feet.  In the background three
    more Tarkata are sitting around a small fire, while a Seidan guard
    stands next to Baraka).
       "Baraka assumed that the treacherous Mileena had given her armies a
    powerful magic. They fought with savage brutality, but he could not
    stop their advance. He vowed that Mileena would pay for her betrayal.
    Baraka's warriors brought word that she had agreed to meet with him in
    an ancient lair, but Baraka was no fool... He sent another in his
    place..."
    (A photo of Baraka slicing open Mileena's midsection, spilling out
    massive amounts of blood and even her intestines).
       "Baraka assumed that the treacherous Mileena had given her armies

    |Sub-Zero:|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Alternate Costume Story:
    
         "I learned that the ruins were a holy structure belonging to a
    lost race of people who had attained mastery over cold.  After
    thorough study of this culture, I now believe both Frost and myself
    to be their descendants.  I laid Frost's body in a sarcophagus and
    left the catacombs, donning the armor of my newly discovered
    heritage."
    
    Ending:
    
    (A photo of Sub-Zero in the Living Forest surrounded by Baraka and
    four of his Tarkatan warriors.  Sub-Zero has one of them encased in
    ice, while the rest move in for the kill).
    
       "On his way to the rendezvous point with Raiden and the others,
    Sub-Zero was ambushed by a band of Tarkatan warriors in the Living
    Forest.  He tried to outrun them, but there were too many.  He was
    quickly surrounded.  Sub-Zero decided that his last living deed
    would be to vanquish as many of these barbarians as he could before
    he succumbed to death."
    
    (A photo of Sub-Zero jump kicking Baraka in the mouth causing blood
    and teeth to go flying.  In that same jump kick, Zero managed to
    kick another Tarkata in the face as well.  Two warriors look on from
    behind).
    
       "As Sub-Zero began his attack, he felt his armor speak to him.  It
    guided and strengthened each blow as he broke their limbs and
    crushed their skulls.  At his feet, a dying Tarkatan warrior uttered
    the words, 'Long live the Dragon King...'"

    |Kabal:|
    ~-~-~-~-
    
    Alternate Costume Story:
    
         "Inspired by Havik, I set out to find and kill Mavado of the
    Red Dragon.  His organization is secretive, but not invisible.  It
    feels good to have hookswords in my hands once again.  I have since
    recruited young, skillful warriors to fill the ranks of the new
    Black Dragon clan.  I will now lead my fellow Dragons to Outworld,
    where Havik has a task for us.  It will be an excellent opportunity
    to test the abilities of my young comrades - and weed out the weak
    ones."
    
    Ending:
    
    (A photo of Kabal looking on, hookswords in the ready, as Havik
    tears the heart out of the Dragon King).
    
       "Havik had given Kabal's new Black Dragon recruits a task: Lure
    the heroes away from the Dragon King's corpse while he somehow
    retrieved the heart and with it, Onaga's power to raise the dead.
    Apparently Onaga's ancient army had only been invincible by means of
    constant resurrection during battles.
    
    (A photo of Kabal jabbing both his hookswords straight thorough Havik's
    chest; Havik is still holding the Dragon King's heart).
    
       " The power to raise the dead would prove quite useful to the Black
    Dragon clan.  Kabal slew Havik and took the Dragon King's heart for
    himself.  Havik was most impressed."
    
    
    ~-~-~-~-
    |Ermac:|
    ~-~-~-~-
    
    Alternate Costume Story:
    
         "We encountered a fellow warrior spirit who, like Kenshi,
    understood our suffering.  Eager to atone for the atrocities we had
    committed in Shao Kahn's name, we agreed to help this warrior, Liu
    Kang, to liberate his allies from the control of the Dragon King.
    Shao Kahn may be dead, but it seems his essence lives on in this new
    menace.  It is as if they are both manipulated by the very fabric of
    the realms."
    
    Ending:
    
    (A photo of Ermac combating Liu Kang's enslaved comrades: Johhny
    Cage, Kung Lao, Jax, Sonya and Mileena.  In the background Liu Kang
    is freeing their souls).
    
       "In an outer chamber of the Dragon King's throne room. Ermac did
    battle with Liu Kang's enslaved comrades. Ermac was more that a
    match for the five warriors, but their defeat was not his objective.
    Liu Kang materialized and, one by one, freed their souls while Ermac
    occupied the rest."
    
    (A photo of Ermac, Sonya, Johnny Cage, Liu Kang's ghost, Kitana, Kung
    Lao and Jax standing there.  Liu Kang is shaking Kitana's hand).
    
       "Eventually, all five were awakened from their enchantment and
    freed from Onaga's control. Ermac was pleased that his warrior
    skills could for once bring about a noble outcome. He sensed,
    however, that an ominous force still shaped the destiny of the
    realms. It was everywhere. He cloud feel influence on Onaga, though
    the Dragon King was oblivious to its manipulation. Time was running
    out. Ermac feared the celebration of this latest victory would be
    short-lived."
    
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-
    |Nightwolf:|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
    Alternate Costume Story:
    
         "The Sin-Eater ritual has corrupted my soul and will therefore
    allow me to enter the Netherrealm.  There I will implement my plan
    to defeat Onaga.  The sins I have absorbed have poisoned my
    temperament, however, and I have forced myself into exile until my
    task is complete in the depths of Hell."
    
    Ending:
    
    (A photo of Nightwolf kneeling down in front of a massive glowing
    green symbol in a cave).
    
       "Nightwolf had traversed realms and fought many demons to get to
    this place deep within the Netherrealm. Using knowledge passed to
    him form his forefathers, he drew a binding symbol on the ground and
    chanted the ancient words that would draw the spirit of the Dragon
    Kong to this wicked place."
    
    (A photo of Nightwolf releasing the "sins of his people" in the symbol,
    thus bounding the Dragon King to the Netherrealm).
    
       "Nightwolf had carried the burden long enough. He released the
    sins of his people into the mystic symbol, and their weight bound
    Onaga to the Netherrealm. Free of the corruption he had harbored for
    so long, Nightwolf was expelled from the depths of the Netherrealm
    and into the unknown."

    |Bo'Rai Cho:|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Alternate Costume Story:
    
         "On the other side of the palace bridge, I was met by
    Earthrealm's thunder god, Raiden, and his band of heroes marching to
    battle the Deadly Alliance.  I bid them a glorious victory, but my
    primary concern was Li Mei's safety.  I have since learned of the
    disaster that took place at the palace.  The Dragon King had indeed
    returned, as legends foretold.  Without our Earthrealm allies, I
    fear for Outworld's future."
    
    Ending:
    
    (A photo of Bo'Rai Cho on a cliff top bowing, staff in hand, in
    front of Liu Kang's levitating ghost).
    
       "Onaga seemed invincible.  The races of Outworld were in
    disagreement on how to deal with this threat, and Baraka's hordes
    were sweeping the land. Bo'Rai Cho had almost given up hope when he
    was visited by the spirit of his greatest student, Liu Kang.  Their
    roles now reversed, Liu Kang gave Bo'Rai Cho the inspiration
    necessary to continue the fight."
    
    (A photo of Bo'Rai Cho, Li Mei and her army battling many Tarkatan
    warriors).
    
       "Bo'Rai Cho's soul was invigorated! He met with Outworld's many
    leaders to forge a temporary truce.  Kitana gave him command of what
    remained of her army, and he led them to battle against Baraka's
    mutant foot soldiers. The new army of Outworld crushed the Tarkata
    vermin, and Baraka himself was bested by Bo'Rai Cho's attack.  The
    victory inspired the people of Outworld to rise up against the
    Dragon King."

    |Ashrah:|

    Alternate Costume Story:
    
         "Now I understand the strange sensation I feel when I
    exterminate a demon of the Netherrealm with this sword.  The sword
    is purifying me as I cleanse the world of evil.  With each fiend I
    eradicate, my presence here becomes more unstable... soon I will be
    expelled from this realm.  If I were to slay a powerful demon such
    as Noob Saibot, I would finally become an ascending demon, free from
    the Netherrealm forever."
    
    Ending:
    
    (A photo of Ashrah and Noob Saibot about to battle.  A picture of
    Smoke short circuiting can be seen in the background).
    
       "Noob Saibot was not originally a demon, which might explain why
    Ashrah sensed great evil in him: He had to earn his place in the
    Netherrealm. He actually desired to remain there. His companion,
    however, seemed to be having a problem adjusting. Perhaps was some
    good left in the cyborg. Whatever the case, Noob would have to face
    Ashrah alone."
    
    (A photo of Ashrah being sucked into a portal out of the Netherrealm;
    her sword is falling out of her hand).
    
       "Ashrah defeated Noob Saibot and finally earned her ascension from
    the Netherrealm. But the sword that made her escape possible did not
    travel with her. I suspect it still remains in the Netherrealm,
    waiting to release another of its denizens from damnation."

    Alternate Costume Story:
    
         "I emerged from prison a changed man.  No longer would I follow
    orders of the Seidan.  Neither could I bring myself to give in to
    Chaos.  Instead, I opted to serve myself.  I became a mercenary, a
    warrior for hire, and have become revered in Orderealm's secret
    underground.  My neutrality has been put to the test, however, as my
    current contract is to find and kill my former guardsman, Hotaru."
    
    Ending:
    
    (A photo of Dairou and Hotaru about to engage in Mortal Kombat).
    
       "Normally, Dairou took no risks and ambushed those he had been
    hired to kill. But in this case, he felt compelled to announce his
    intentions to kill his fellow Guardsman, Hotaru. There still must
    have been some code of honor left in his cynical heart."
    
    (A photo of Dairou consoling a fallen and bloodied Hotaru).
    
       "Hotaru was defeated... but before Dairou could reveal who had
    commissioned the attack, Hotaru drew his dying breath."

    Alternate Costume Story:
    
         "I couldn't stop.  The thrill of kombat consumed me.  I had
    killed!  First it was drug dealers and gangbangers - it allowed me
    to justify the violence.  But the bloodlust grew.  I killed for
    money, looting convenience stores and gas stations.  When the law
    finally caught up with me, I couldn't remember how many had died.
    Sitting cuffed I nthe police car, I heard some of the officers
    shouting and firing their guns.  When some chick and a masked guy
    with bloody hookswords stepped into the light, I knew I was in the
    company of friends."

    (A photo of Kobra being held back by Kabal, as they all look on to
    the siege of the Dragon King; Kira is standing there too).
    
       "Kabal brought his new recruits to Outworld, where a siege was
    underway against the Dragon King. Kobra grew impatient. He wanted to
    join the fray, but Kabal held him back. They were not to attack
    until the heroes had won."
    
    (A photo of Kobra, Kabal, and Kira all joining to attack the victors.
    Kobra is jump kicking toward the screen).
    
       "Once the Dragon King had been defeated, Kabal gave the order to
    strike the victors. The new Black Dragon tore through their ranks

    being a Black Dragon."

    Alternate Costume Story:
    
         "One of the best recruitment tools I have discovered is the law
    itself.  If my ranks are in need of a powerful warrior like a Seidan
    Guardsman, for instance, I will hire an outsider to kill the man's
    family in the hope that his rage will lead to a violent altercation
    with the assassin.  Once he is imprisoned for the attack, I free the
    Seidan Guardsman and easily recruit him to our cause."

    (A photo of Darrius handing a scroll over to Dairou.  Darrius is
    pointing to his head, as if he is doing something "smart").
    
       "The mercenary Dairou had succeeded in stealing the Declaration of
    Order and was paid many koins for his efforts. After Darrius hid the
    document, he announced its capture to the world and heralded in a
    new beginning for the realm of Seido."
    
    (A photo of Darrius and the other members of the resistance facing off
    with Hotaru and other Seidan Guardsman).
    
       "As Darrius had predicted, officials were outraged that the
    Resistance had stolen the most prized possession of the Seidan
    government. Hotaru was ordered to lead the charge against them. He
    underestimated their numbers, however, and the Resistance defeated
    him and his men. The senate would soon be in the hands of the
    revolutionaries."

    eventually managed to lock her in a cell of her own.  Kitana scream
    furiously, alerting the enemy.  Before Queen Sindel and I escaped

    essence at her. The glass broke, splashing its contents across

    uncontrolled frenzy. They perceived Tanya to be a rival male and
    instinctively attacked. I doubt she survived the encounter."

         "Still weary, I traveled with Sub-Zero to the portal that had
    brought him to Outworld.  I noticed that his armor was charred and
    worn from battle.  He told me of a powerful warrior named Hotaru, a
    loyalist to a new ruler of this realm, who had attacked him for
    slaying a troop of Tarkatan militia.  Sub-Zero thought he had
    defeated the warrior, but I am not so sure.  I have sensed a
    presence following us for the past few days..."

    the portal to Earthrealm, the Dragon King zealot Hotaru attacked
    with a blast of glowing energy that temporarily blinded Sub-Zero."
    
    (A photo of Kenshi slicing Hotaru in half vertically with his
    Kitana.  VERY cool picture.  Sub-Zero is a couple feet away holding
    his head as if in shock).
    
       "Kenshi's sense of sight is of a spiritual nature, thus he was
    unaffected by the intense flash of Hotaru's projectile attack. In
    the dark, Kenshi had the advantage. Hotaru did not see his approach.
    Unaware, he strode in to kill Sub-Zero. It was the last mistake he'd
    ever made."

    Onaga.  He had been searching Edenia for... I know not what.  I fear,
    however, that the knowledge left behind by Shao Kahn so many years
    ago may be his objective.  That information should have been
    destroyed - but if it still exists, it could spell disaster for the
    realms.  I cannot save my daughter Kitana until I learn more about
    her captor."

       "Although Onaga had returned from the dead, he did not re-inhabit
    his original body. Sindel and Jade found his sarcophagus opened. His
    body remained, but the armor was missing. Strangely, the
    hieroglyphics in his tomb were similar to an ancient Edenian
    language. She discovered an incantation, inscribed by Onaga's holy
    men, that was intended to transport his soul back into its original
    body. As she was memorizing the spell, Onaga emerged from the
    shadows."
    
    (A photo of Sindel transferring Onaga's soul into the soul of Reptile
    who is laying in a coffin.  Jade and Kitana are battling in the
    background).
    
       " Onaga could have defeated both Jade and Sindel, but instead he
    took sadistic pleasure unleashing Kitana against them. He was a
    fool. Jade held off Kitana while Sindel thrust her Kwan Dao into the
    heart of the corpse. As she screamed the ancient incantation,
    Onaga's soul leapt from Reptile's body into its intended vessel. The
    corpse came to life and cried in agony as the Kwan Dao prevented its
    heart from reforming. Sindel held the blade firmly in place as Onaga
    returned to the cold sleep of death."
    
    (A photo of Sindel hugging her daughter Kitana, while Jade looks on).

    mortals.  It was Shujinko's vanity and desire for glory that had led
    to the return of the Dragon King.  I will no longer allow the will
    of men to determine the fate of this realm.  They will fight for it,
    or I will destroy them.  All will fear the new God of Thunder."

       "An Alliance had been formed of warriors from vastly different
    origins, but with a similar goal: to defeat Onaga. Li Mei marched
    uneasily into battle against the Dragon King. The closer she got to
    him, the more she came to understand which side was truly deserving
    of victory. Li Mei turned on her former allies and gave emperor the
    time he needed to finish merging the Kamidogu."

    his chest).
    
       "The Dragon King now all powerful. He had the means to control the
    universe, to make and unmake as he saw fit. Li Mei watched in
    delight as the Elder Gods fled before his might. Onaga then
    transformed her into his queen, to be forever at his side. He had
    given her powers beyond anything she has ever imagined. Together
    they will rule the One Realm and slay the last of the Elder Gods."

    revealed during the ordeal with Shinnok's amulet, his soul had
    become tainted when he died at the hands of Scorpion, Noob Saibot,
    the original Sub-Zero, had descended into the Netherrealm free from

    attempting, Onaga was determined to complete it.  He was looking for
    lost information, ancient spells that would fuse the Elder Gods' six
    Kamidogu into one and therefore make it possible for him to wield
    their combined might.  I brought him to Edenia, where I believed
    that information still existed."

    fuse the Kamidogu together).
    
       "In Edenia, Tanya had located the ancient texts that described the

    unspeakable power."

    King lay slain in the background).

         "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."
    
    Ending:
    
    (A photo of Shujinko standing in the middle of a circle formed by
    many of Mortal Kombat's greatest warriors.  Their fighting abilities
    are all being absorbed by him).
    
       "So that I would be able to defend myself during the quest to find
    the Kamidogu. Onaga had given me the power to adsorb 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 villains were
    unaware that they were bringing about their own destruction by
    serving him. I united them, and in one moment, absorbed their
    combined fighting powers."
    
    (A photo of Shujinko jumping at the Dragon King's face with his fist
    glowing a bright yellow and blue).
    
       "I shattered each of the Kamidogu, the source of his

    powers of so many warriors. The Dragon King was finally defeated.
    The realms will remain as they have since the beginning."

    mission to stop the uprising against him.  Baraka's militia have
    brought word of an Earthrealm warrior named Sub-Zero who has slain
    many Tarkata.  I will hunt him down.  I will bring him before the

    |XII. Konquest Mode Walkthrough|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
    
         The Konquest Mode featured in Mortal Kombat: Deception is a
    drastic overhaul when compared to the one offered in MK: Deadly
    Alliance.  The Deception version of Konquest is vastly different in
    that it offers the player a chance to explore the entire Mortal
    Kombat universe; it allows you to interact with past characters and
    learn different martial arts along the way.  Konquest Mode features
    six realms to explore: Earthrealm, Netherrealm, Chaosrealm,
    Outworld, Orderrealm, and Edenia.  Your primary trainer will be
    Bo'Rai Cho, but almost every character from past Mortal Kombat's
    make appearances.  There are main Konquest missions which continue
    the story along, and there are side missions which reward the player
    with koins or an extra key here or there.  This walkthrough will
    outline the different missions and how to complete them.
         You begin Konquest as a young boy named Shujinko.  As Shujinko,
    you run around the Mortal Kombat universe completing training with
    the various kombatants of MK: Deception.  Aside from completing the
    various training exercises, the player can take on quests to find
    items and keys for the Krypt or various amounts of koins to be spent
    in the Krypt.  As you progress in Konquest Mode, Shujinko ages; he
    goes from a young boy (maybe 13) to a middle aged man (maybe mid
    30's) to an old man (maybe 60).  There are many, many chests hidden
    throughout Konquest Mode all of which contain something different.
    Some of these chests only appear on certain days at certain times
    (Konquest has its own internal clock that keeps track of the date
    and time of day).  The Konquest map is much like a grid; it has
    coordinates that range from A1-H8.  I will constantly refer to these
    coordinates throughout the walkthrough as they will pinpoint exactly
    where you need to be.  With that being said, we will now whisk away
    to the wonderful world of Mortal Kombat.
    
    
    +-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~+
    |Earthrealm Village|
    +-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~+
    
       After choosing Konquest from the Main Menu, the player is treated
    to an opening sequence.  This sequence shows an Earthrealm village
    inhabited by many young boys and girls acting as their favorite
    Mortal Kombat characters.  We are then shown young Shujinko talking
    to "Shang Tsung" (a girl dressed as him) telling him how he will
    free Earthrealm from his tyranny.  "Shang Tsung" responds by saying
    that will never happen and he instructs "Goro" (a boy on top of
    another boy's shoulders) to defeat "Kung Lao" (Shujinko).  They
    start circling each other when a bell rings.  They all scream "We're
    late!" and run off deeper into the village.  Shujinko is left
    walking up to a dojo and meeting Bo'Rai Cho for some training.

    You have a long way to go, but every step is a victory.  How you
    maneuver in kombat plays as much a part of your strategy as how you
    punch or kick.  Tapping toward or away from your opponent will guide
    your movements."
    
         Directions: Your first exercise will be to step toward me three
    times.  Then, step away from me three times.
    
    > Tap - Toward, Toward, Toward
    > Tap - Back, Back, Back
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Do not assume that offensiveness is always the
    correct path to victory.  A hasty retreat can give you the space you
    need to plan for your next attack.  By quickly tapping twice away from
    your opponent, you can perform a Backward Dash."
    
         Directions: Put distance between us by performing three Backward
    Dashes away from me.
    
    > Tap - Back, Back
    > Tap - Back, Back
    > Tap - Back, Back
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Know a fighting style like you would know
    yourself.  Let no attribute escape you."
    
         Directions: Try to strike me once with four different basic
    attacks to understand their unique characteristics.
    
    > Tap - 1
    > Tap - 2
    > Tap - 3
    > Tap - 4
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Often you can perform different attacks with the
    same button by pressing in a direction at the same time.  For
    example, pressing towards your opponent while attacking will execute
    a different attack."
    
         Directions: Now, Shujinko, strike me with each of your high
    punch attacks.
    
    > Tap - 2
    > Tap - Up+2
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Next, Shujinko, I will show you attack
    variations.  Some attacks can be executed by combining the
    directional pad and an attack button.  These attacks will often
    strike your opponent in different locations.  In the Mantis fighting
    style, the 3 button will initiate an attack to your opponent's
    chest.  However, by holding Back+3, you will attack your opponent's
    knees."
    
         Directions: Strike me with each of your high and low attacks.
    
    > Tap - 3
    > Tap - Back+3
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "A mixture of high and low attacks can overcome
    the defenses of even the most determined foe."
    
         Directions: Strike me with two high attacks and two low
    attacks.
    
    > Tap - 2
    > Tap - Up+2
    > Tap - 3
    > Tap - Down+3

    *END TRAINING*
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
         After completing the basic training with Bo'Rai Cho, Shujinko
    will now be allowed to explore the Earthrealm village taking on
    quests and sidequests.  You start directly in front a fountain with
    many villagers wandering about.  You can talk to them if you like to
    see if they have any quests for you to undertake.
    
    -->Side Mission 1 (A-6): "Help the villager cure his toothache."
       If you talk to the old, bald man with the white beard, he will
    tell you of a very bad toothache he has because of not taking care
    of his teeth.  You will also learn that the local dentist is nowhere
    to be found.
    
    > Solution: If you just punch the man in the face, you will knock is
    tooth out, "curing" him of his toothache.  He is very thankful and
    gives you 400 Sapphire koins as a reward.
    
         If you talk to the man in the fountain area he tells you to
    find Apep.  The man next to the fountain entrance tells Shujinko of
    a temple in the village.  Shujinko then inquires how to enter it.
    The man tells him to speak with the guards; to the man's left are
    the guards.  If you speak with one of them, he says there is an
    elderly woman in town who can benefit you greatly; he says you
    should speak to her.  The other guard says that he believes he saw a
    Lin Kuei over by the students playing.
    
         If you speak with the old woman holding her back she tells you
    that she has to put her money in a safe place.  You can punch this
    old woman to steal the key to her hut.
         Directly to the right of your starting place is a young boy
    surrounded by a green aura; this is Apep (B-6).  When you speak to
    him, he tells you how he has seen you practicing martial arts, and
    he informs you that Bo'Rai Cho instructed him to show you Cho's
    other schools of martial arts.  He begins running to these
    locations, and you should follow him, but before that, you should
    pick up and talk to:
    
    -->Side Mission 2 (B-5): "Find the lost key somewhere in the park."
         If you talk to the man standing in between two houses, he tells
    you that he lost his key when playing Mortal Kombat; his parents
    will kill him if someone uses his key to rob his house.
    
    > Solution: If you search the park area, A-6, (with the fountain)
    you will find the key in the lower right most part.  Return the key
    to the boy, or you can rob his house.  If you rob the house (the
    house to the right of where the boy is standing) you will receive,
    65 Platinum koins, 140 Onyx koins, 60 Sapphire koins, 50 Jade koins,
    and 150 Gold koins.
    
    -->Side Mission 3 (B-6): "Find the hiding boy."
         If you talk to the boy dressed up as a ninja, he will tell you
    he is practicing Ninjitsu.  He tells you to watch him disappear as
    he throws a smoke bomb and vanishes.
    
    > Solution: If you go back to the fountain area, (A-6) you will find
    the boy in the upper left most area.  He will reward you with a
    "Mysterious Key."
    
         If you continue on the path to Apep, you should talk to a woman
    walking around in a robe.  This leads to:
    
    -->Side Mission 4 (B-5): "Find a Woman's missing son."
         If you talk to the woman in the robe, she informs you that the
    Lin Kuei are recruiting again, and that her son is missing.  She
    asks you to tell him to come home immediately.
    
    > Solution: At location A-3 are two boys play fighting.  The boy
    with the short hair is the woman's son.  Speak with him and he tells
    you not to tell his mom where he is.  For doing him this favor, he
    offers you 400 Sapphire koins.
    
         Past the woman in the robe, is another old woman walking about,
    she leads you into:
    
    -->Side Mission 5 (B-5): "Deliver a note to the blacksmith."
         You will see another old woman walking around near the same
    woman who gave you the "Find my son" quest.  This woman tells you
    that she is much too busy doing her shopping to deliver a note to
    the blacksmith.  She asks you to do this favor for her.  If you
    accept, you receive an "Important Note."
    
    > Solution: At area B-4, is the blacksmith.  Talk to him and you
    will have given him the note.  The note says that a bunch of
    fisherman have been robbed by a band of brigands.  The note requests
    that the blacksmith make better armor and weapons for them.  Now
    return to the woman and she will thank you.  There is no reward for
    completing this quest.
    
         Just past the old woman asking you to take the note to the
    blacksmith, is another character with a quest:
    
    -->Side Mission 6 (B-5) "Wake up the lazy boy sleeping in the
    woods."
         The kid next to one of Bo'Rai Cho's dojos tells you to find his
    brother and make him come home to do his chores.
    
    > Solution: In area D-4, there is the boy sleeping under the trees.
    Wake him up, and he then runs off to do his chores.  If you come
    back to this spot later, the boy will give you a "Ninja Star."
    
         After receiving and completing some of these quests, it is time
    to head (finally!) to where Apep is waiting for you outside Bo'Rai
    Cho's dojo (B-5).  Apep tells you that this is another of Master
    Cho's classrooms and that he is starting class now.  Walk inside...

    |Training: Bo'Rai Cho|
    +~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-+
    
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Every warrior has the potential to effortlessly
    link his or her moves into one long attack combination.  For
    example, You can combine attacks by pressing 1 and 1 in rapid
    succession."
    
         Directions: Test your attack combo skills.  Execute the short
    form of this combo.
    
    > Metal Mantis: Tap - 1, 1, 2
    > Looking For Prey: Tap - 1, 1, 1
    > Time To Hunt: Tap - 1, 1, 3
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "You show the makings of a promising student.  Not
    many of my pupils would have understood the technique of combining
    attacks so quickly!"
    
         Directions: Now try the full Combo moves.
    
    > Stunning Prey: Tap - 1, 1, Up+3
    > Scratch It Up: Tap - 1, 1, 2, 4
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Next, Shujinko, you will learn the might of the
    Power Attack!"
    
         Directions: Power Attacks do more damage than normal attacks.
    Most are performed by combining attack buttons with the directional
    pad.  Perform these Power Attacks so that I may see that you have
    learned.
    
    > Stone Column: Tap - Up+2
    > Forceful Ball Attack: Tap - Up+3
    > Hidden Mantis Claws: Tap - Toward+4
    > Mantacut: Tap - Down+2
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "I will now show you the art of Pop-Up attacks.
    These moves will give you the advantage by keeping your opponent in
    the air long enough to execute a combo."
    
         Directions: Your opponent cannot block while being popped in
    the air.  This is indicated by his blue Fight State indicator light
    just below his health meter.  Like Power Attacks, these moves are
    also performed by combining the attack buttons with the directional
    pad.  Now, Shujinko, show me you understand Pop-Up Attacks.
    
    > Mantis Takes Prey: Tap - Back+2
    > Upward Leg: Tap - Up+4
    
         Directions: Excellent! Now try to follow a Pop-Up Attack with
    another attack while your opponent is still in the air.  This is
    called "juggling."
    
    > Tap - Up+4 then while Cho is airborne, Tap - 1, 1, 1
    > Tap - Back+2 then while Chi is airborne, Tap - 1, 1, 2
    
    Mission Complete!
    
    *END TRAINING*
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
         Now that you have completed, Bo'Rai Cho's second set of
    training, talk to Apep again.  He will tell you to follow him to
    another of Bo'Rai Cho's training classrooms.  Before you do that
    however, go into the hut directly across from his dojo for:
    
         Next to one of the huts containing Ruby koins, is a kid
    coughing.  Talk to him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 7 (C-5): "Find medicine for the sick boy before 8
    p.m."
         He asks for your help because he ate some bad food and he feels
    ill.  If you do not complete this mission before 8 p.m. the boy will
    die, and the mission is lost.  Speaking to the sick boy again will
    reveal that his mother is the woman hanging laundry at (B-6).
    
    > Solution: If you speak to the boy's mother at (B-6), she will give
    you the "Bottle of Medicine."  Return this medicine to the boy and
    he will let you in on a secret.  He says that if you stand next to
    Bo'Rai Cho's second dojo at 4:00 a.m. Wednesday morning, a great
    treasure will appear.  If you do this, a chest containing 600 Onyx
    koins appears.
    
          Next to this chest, is a bridge leading deeper into the
    village (C-6).  Once across the bridge, you will come across a boy
    meditating.  Speak to him to learn how to meditate.
    
         There are many huts and houses in this part of town, and most
    of them contain some koins.  There are also Ruby, Sapphire, and Onyx
    koins scattered about outside.  Inside one of the huts is an orange
    "?" mark.  Picking this up rewards you with 15 Platinum koins.
    
         You can talk to all the townsfolk if you like to pick up even
    more sidequests.  There is a man standing in front of his house,
    which leads to:
    
    -->Side Mission 8 (D-5): "Reclaim the pawned wedding ring."
         If you talk to the man standing in front of his house, he says
    that he pawned his wedding ring to pay for his gambling debt.  If
    you return the ring, he will reward you with whatever money he has
    left.
    
    > Solution: To reclaim this ring, return to C-6.  Once there, speak
    with the shopkeeper who will ask you if you want to buy a ring.
    After asking, he claims you do not have enough money, but a punch to
    the face should do him justice.  Take the ring he leaves behind and
    return it to the man for 400 Platinum koins.
    
         As you continue exploring this part of the village, talk to the
    man with the Raiden hat on standing in front of a large dojo (C-5).
    He tells you to go inside for the auction...  All that is inside are
    90 Gold koins.
         After receiving and completing some quests, speak with Apep
    again (D-5) who is standing outside Bo'Rai Cho's third training
    classroom.  He tells you to go inside and complete even more
    training.  Do what he says and step inside...

    +~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-+
    
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "I will now show you the basics of defense.  A
    defensive warrior can block an attack by holding the Block button
    while his opponent strikes."
    
         Directions: You must now attempt to block four of my strikes.
    
    > Just push the Block button as Cho strikes to complete this
    portion.
    
         Directions: Excellent.  Now block four low attacks.
    
    > Just push and hold the block button, and hold Down to block the
    low attacks.
    
         Directions: Ducking below your opponent is an effective tactic
    to avoid high attacks.  Duck under these three high attacks by
    pressing diagonally down and away from me on the directional pad.
    
    > Just push and hold diagonally down on the D-pad to complete this.
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "An excellent way to tire out your opponent is to
    evade his attacks."
    
         Directions: Evade three of my punches by quickly tapping up or
    down on the directional pas I attack.
    
    > As Cho is about to strike (there is a timer that starts at 3 and
    counts down), just tap Down, Down, or Up, Up to evade his attacks.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
    *END TRAINING*
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
         Across from Bo'Rai Cho's third dojo (C-4) is a house where a
    woman says a man looks in her window every night at 2 a.m.  Wait
    around until this time, then punch the man who looks in the window,
    he will drop 400 Jade koins.  To the left of Cho's dojo is:
    
         On the other side of the dojo are three boys talking.  Speak to
    them to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 9 (D-5): "Teach Mekko a lesson."
         Talk to the three boys on the side of Cho's dojo to learn that
    a boy named Mekko has been beating them up and stealing their money.
    They want you to teach him a lesson.
    
    > Solution: In order to do this, travel back to A-6, and speak with
    Mekko.  After that, punch him in the head, and take the 400 Platinum
    koins that he drops.
    
         After completing that mission, speak with Apep again who is
    standing outside the dojo.  He tells you follow him again.  He stops
    at a bridge (D-4), and informs us that in order for us to cross the
    bridge we need to pay him.  Since, we have no money, we need to find
    food from the butcher to bribe him.
         Head back to the butcher at C-6, and he will agree with you
    that the guard at the bridge is hungry.  He gives you the "Ham" to
    feed him.  Now, return to the guard and give him the ham; you now
    have access to the areas beyond bridge.
    
         Immediately to the right of the bridge is a house with a lady
    inside, which leads to:
    
    -->Side Mission 10 (D-4): "Fill the bucket with water from a well."
         Once inside this house, speak with the woman to learn that she
    needs water to do her laundry.  She gives you a "Bucket" and asks
    you to retrieve water from a well for her.
    
    > Solution: Remember that well where we found some koins earlier?
    Well, it is time to head back there (B-6).  You need to approach the
    well and fill it up with water.  Once filled, return to the lady and
    she will reward you with 400 Jade koins.
    
         Exit this house, and enter the one directly to the left of it.
    Inside is a man who has run out of flour for his pastries which
    leads to:
    
    -->Side Mission 11 (D-4): "Locate flour for the baker."
         Walk into the house next to the house with the laundry lady to
    talk to a man who has run out of flour for his pastries.  He asks
    you to go to his storage room down the street to fetch him some
    flour.
    
    > Solution: Head to the flour man's storage room (B-3) to find "Sack
    of Flour."  Return it to the man and he will reward you with 400
    Sapphire koins.
    
    -->Side Mission 12 (D-3): "Find a lost dog."
         Inside the house next to the one with the flour man is a lady
    who has lost her dog.  She asks you to ask around to see if anyone
    has seen her dog.
    
    > Solution: At area C-3, there is a house to the left of the
    overturned wheelbarrow.  Inside is a man who "gave" the dog to the
    butcher not knowing it was a pet.  This man then gives you all that
    is left of the dog, "Dog Meat."  Return to D-3, and give the lady
    the Dog Meat.  She is shocked and offers you 400 Ruby koins as a
    reward.  She then invites you to join her later for some Nikko (her
    dog's name) stew...
    
         If you talk to the man by the bridge near some bushes (C-4) he
    will say he took your wallet and run off.  Follow him, and punch him
    to reclaim some koins.  Continuing on the path (C-4) you will see a
    key to the Krypt.  It is for koffin "KT" and it unlocks Liu Kang's
    Tomb Music.  Across from this key is another:
    
         Now talk to Apep who is waiting outside the fourth Cho dojo.
    He informs you he will wait outside while you continue your
    training.  Enter this dojo.

    fighting style has its strengths and weaknesses.  Weapons are also
    frequently used in kombat.  You will likely have learned to use many
    during your many years of training."
    
         Directions: Press the Style Change button to cycle through your
    current fighting styles.
    
    Tap - CS button three times.
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Now strike me with an attack from each of your
    three fighting styles."
    
    Tap - 1 in fighting Mantis, 2 in Shaolin fist, and 3 in Dan Tien
    Dao.

    *END TRAINING*
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
         After completing this training, the overturned wheelbarrow
    blocking the bridge will be gone allowing you access to another part
    of the village.  Speak with Apep where he will guide you to another
    training session.  Before you train though you should:
    
         Talk to the townsfolk to learn miscellaneous facts about
    Earthrealm.  Also, pick up any stray koins lying about.  Entering
    the house at (A-4) leads to:
    
    -->Side Mission 13 (A-4): "Find proof that oni exist."
         After entering this house, you will find a brother and sister.
    The sister claims her brother will not believe her when she says
    that oni exist.  She asks you to find proof.
    
    > Solution: At location B-5, or B-6 at 4:00-6:00 a.m. will be a
    weird looking man walking around.  He kind of resembles Baraka as he
    has the same teeth as him.  He is also wearing a weird helmet with
    spikes sticking out.  Punch this man to receive the "Oni Tooth."
    Return to A-4, and show the man the tooth.  He will be in awe, and
    reward you with 500 Gold koins.
    
         Walking along the path of this part of the village leads to:
    
    -->Side Mission 14 (B-3): "Locate five Lin Kuei warriors before
    dawn."
         This man is at his post, meaning he cannot leave it.  He is
    hearing rumors of Lin Kuei lurking about, and asks you take care of
    them for him.
    
    > Solution: The five Lin Kuei warriors are at points: B-6 (behind a
    tree), C-4 (in the trees), D-4 (in the trees), A-2 (near the
    entrance to Cho's big classrooms) and A-4 (to the left of Cho's dojo
    where a chest was located).  Return to the man who gave you the
    quest to receive 600 Jade koins.
    
         After following the path a little longer, before Cho's big
    classroom, is a lady doing her laundry.  She gives you:
    
    -->Side Mission 15 (A-3): "Locate a lost bracelet."
         Speak with the lady doing her laundry, and she will tell you
    that she lost her bracelet because it was too big for her.  If you
    find it, she will reward you with koins.
    
    > Solution: This took me forever to figure out, but the bracelet is
    actually in a barrel at location D-5 next to a house.  Return the
    bracelet and the woman will reward you with 400 Ruby koins.
    
         It is now time for the fourth training lesson from Bo'Rai Cho.
    Talk to Apep outside the dojo, and he will tell you he will wait
    outside.  Away we go...

    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "It is a well known fact that when your opponent
    attacks, he is also vulnerable to your attack.  You must be able to
    recognize this opportunity.  Keep your eye on the red Fight State
    indicator light below your opponent's health meter.  When it lights
    up, he is exposed to your attack.  You will do more damage to your
    opponent when the red light is on.  Try to dodge my attack and then
    counter with another attack.
    
    > Sidestep Cho's attacks and hit him with any attack three times.
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Good!  Now duck under my high attack and then
    counter with an attack of your own."
    
    > Hold down and block, and when Cho attacks, attack him right away.
    Do this three times to beat him.
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "I have already taught you combo attacks.  These
    attacks can do much damage to your opponent.  If you should find
    yourself being attacked by a string of combo moves, you cannot block
    after the first hit.  There is a method, however, for breaking a
    combo attack.  This is what is called a Breaker.  A Breaker is
    performed by holding "block" and pressing toward your opponent with
    the directional pad.  Try to break my combo three times by holding
    'block' and pressing the directional pad toward me."
    
    > When Cho starts a combo, hold Block and hold toward on the D-Pad.
    Do this three times to win.
    
    Mission Complete!

         After completing this training session, speak with Apep again.
    He wants to try a few more advanced maneuvers so follow him to B-3.
    You stop outside The Earthrealm Academy of Martial Arts.  He talks
    about how it is the best school in Earthrealm, and how he attends
    it, and how he intends on kick Shang Tsung back to Outworld.  He
    then runs off leaving you to explore more on your own.  The main
    gates to the Earthrealm Academy of Martial Arts are now open.  There
    is only one room that Shujinko can enter however at A-1...

    +~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-+
    
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Many of the skills you have learned can be used
    together.  By combining fighting styles, you will truly become a
    master of Mortal Kombat."
    
         Directions: Linking fighting styles together will enhance your
    attack.  Show me you understand by performing these Style-Branching
    combos.
    
    > Poor Soul: Tap - 1, 2,4,CS
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "By launching your opponent into the air, you
    leave your opponent vulnerable to combos."
    
         Directions: Try these Pop-Up combos.
    
    > Perfection: Tap - 1, 1, 2, CS
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "I am impressed with your aptitude for learning
    martial arts, Shujinko.  But I must put you to the test to see if
    you truly understand the intricacies of combo attacks."
    
         Directions: Show me you can perform this advanced style branch
    combo.
    
    > Plane Searcher: Tap - 1, 4, 4, CS
    
    Mission Complete!
    
    *END TRAINING*
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
         After you complete the fifth training with Master Bo'Rai Cho,
    you are once again able to explore the rest of the Earthrealm
    village.  The big doors that were previously locked are now open.
    Continue through these doors and pick up the 12 Sapphire koins on
    the path.  To your immediate left, there is a:
    
    Chest: This chest at B-1, contains 200 Sapphire koins.
    
         As always, check every house and hut that is enterable for
    various amounts of koins.  At location C-2 is floating music note.
    Pick it up to receive the key to koffin "CC" which unlocks the
    Beetle Lair Music.  If you talk to the man bent over holding his
    back, you receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 16 (C-2): "Find a vase for the strange man."
         If you speak with the man holding his back, he tells you that
    he needs to find a very important vase for a client of his.  He says
    that if you find it, he will cut you in on some of the profit...
    
    > Solution: The vase is in C-1.  It is the second small hut on the
    left side of the path.  If you return the vase to the man, he will
    claim that you stole... the vase for him. He will then offer you 400
    Jade koins.
    
         Continuing on, you can talk to the old man standing at D-2.  He
    will tell you he is training to become the fastest man in all of
    Earthrealm.  He will then challenge you to a race.  In order to beat
    him, you have to hold down the run button, and just run straight
    down the path.  At the end of the path is 60 Onyx koins, the reward
    for beating him.  To the left of the entrance to the new part of the
    Earthrealm village is:
    
    Chest: This chest at location D-1, contains the key for koffin "HB"
    which contains the Yin Yang Puzzle Arena.
    
         Continuing on through the massive archway is Master Bo'Rai Cho
    (D-1).  He tells you he will not let you pass because it is
    dangerous.  He says you are too young and inexperienced.  He says to
    return to him when you are more experienced, to see if he will let
    you pass.  As Shujinko walks away, he meets Damashi.  Damashi tells
    him the Elder Gods need his help.  They need a champion to save the
    realms.  He says you must traverse the realms in order to find
    certain items (Kamidogu).  Damashi then allows Shujinko to transform
    into anyone he fights.  Shujinko then returns to Bo'Rai Cho and you
    now have to fight him.
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "I highly doubt that you could have learned enough
    from the few lessons I have taught you."
    
         Directions: Spar with me to prove your skills.
    
    > Cho can be tough if you let him get in close.  I try to stay as
    far back as possible.  Let him try a combo, dodge it, and follow up
    with your own.  Cho rarely blocks, so he should be pretty easy.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         After Bo'Rai Cho is defeated, you have to speak to him again,
    in order to pass the gates that lead into Earthrealm.  Remember,
    though, that once you leave the village, you will not be allowed to
    re-enter.  So it is imperative, that you complete all the quests you
    want, and open all the chests before you leave.  Once you are ready,
    approach Cho, and he will tell you he is impressed.  He says he has
    no doubt you will be able to handle yourself outside Earthrealm.  He
    offers to train you himself, to mold you into the next great
    defender of Earthrealm.  He says he trains all his students at his
    home down the road.  You are now allowed to ext the Earthrealm
    village.
    
    ====================================================================
    
    +~-~-~-~-~-+
    |Earthrealm|
    +~-~-~-~-~-+
    
         You are in a completely new area now.  It is still Earthrealm,
    albeit outside of the town.  Immediately after entering Earthrealm,
    look behind you for:
    
    Chest: At location A-5 is a chest containing the key to koffin "SC"
    in the Krypt which unlocks Kenshi's Alt. Costume.
    
         Walk a little farther and you will meet Damashi again.  He says
    he is proud of you for completing your training.  He tells you of
    the six items of great importance...the Kamidogu.  Using these tools,
    the Elder Gods will vanquish the menace threatening the realms.
    They are scattered throughout the realms and you must find them.
    You will also be told of a Nexus.  Damashi doesn't tell you what it
    is at first though.  He will now leave you on your way.
         After speaking with Damashi, Shujinko sees a sign that points
    to the East, that reads "Bo'Rai Cho's house."  He says he should
    head in that direction...  Before we do that, we need to take care of
    some sidequests.
    
         As with the Earthrealm village, there are many, many random
    koins lying about you should pick up.  Right at the outset, is a
    woman walking along the path that leads around some trees.  Speak
    with her to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 1 (B-6): "Find something to help guide this young
    woman to her home."
         You should see this woman constantly walking around the forest.
    If you speak with her, she tells you she has traveled from her
    village and is lost.  She requests that you find something to help
    her get home.
    
    > Solution: You need to travel to location B-7 where you will find a
    floating piece of rock amongst other rocks.  Pick up the "Lodestone"
    and return it to the lady.  She says it is magnetic and always
    points North.  She offers to buy it from you for 50 Jade koins.
    
         After completing this quest, you should travel to Bo'Rai Cho's
    house at location (C-4).  He greets you and offers to empower you
    with his greatest techniques.  You then begin your training...
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Your next lessons will encompass Sumo high
    attacks."
    
    > Sumo Slap: Tap - 1
    > Rib Slap: Tap - 2
    > Cheap Shot: Tap - 3

    > Drinking Punch: Tap - 2

    > Serving Fist: Tap - Down+1
    > Twisting Flask: Tap - Down+3
    > Monkey Kick: Tap - Down+4
    > Sweep Kick: Tap - Back+3

    Fist."
    
    > Battle Punches: Tap - Up+2
    > Spinning Kick: Tap - Back+4
    > Drinking Wine: Tap - Down+2

    > Twist of Lime: Tap - 1, 1, 1
    > Crushing Grapes: Tap - 3, 3, 3
    > Krazy Monkey: Tap - 3, 2
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Now that you have learned the basic combos, we
    will move on to Drunken Fist advanced combos."
    
    > Zero Tolerance: Tap - 3, 3, 2, 2
    > Staggering Steps: Tap - 2, 3, 2, 2
    > On The Rocks: Tap - 2, 2, 1, 1, 1
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "The last of your high attack training will cover

    > Straight Thrust: Tap - Up+3
    > 2-Hit Strike: Tap - Toward+3
    > Strong Overhead Strike: Tap - Back+1
    > Vertical Smash: Tap - Back+2

    > Frenzy Legs: Tap - 1, 2, CS, 3, 3
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Good! Now try this style-branching combo."

    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Finally, show me that you can handle this last
    style-branching combo."
    
    > Drunken Sumo: Tap - 1, 2, CS, 3, CS
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "Special moves can change the tide of battle.  Let

    > Belly Bash: Tap - Toward, Toward, 4
    > Belly Bash: Tap - Toward, Toward, 4

    > Earthquake: Tap - Down, Up+3
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "You have learned my special attacks, but can you
    execute them while I attack you?"
    
    > Belly Bash, Monkey Flips, Puke Puddle, Earthquake, Belly Bash,
    Monkey Flips, Puke Puddle, Earthquake.
    
    -->   Bo'Rai Cho: "I have taught you much, Shujinko, but for your
    final test you must fight me!"
    
    > Cho is pretty easy, as long as you don't get caught in his combos.
    Use special moves sparingly, as they leave you open for attack.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         Five years passed before Bo'Rai Cho felt Shujinko could leave
    and fight on his own.  He has excelled beyond his other students,
    and Shujinko is grateful for the training.  You will continue your
    training in other realms.  Bo'Rai Cho then asks you to find his
    medallion.  He saw it last at the docks.  Before you go to the
    docks, you should complete:
    
    -->Side Mission 2 (B-4): "Scare the old man for his nephew's
    entertainment."
         If you talk to the boy at B-4, he will ask you to frighten his
    uncle for entertainment.  If you do this, he will pay you.
    
    > Solution: At location B-4, is an old man holding his back.  Sneak
    up quietly and slowly behind him, and then talk to him.  He will
    scream, and say it is mean to scare an old man.  Go back to talk to
    the nephew, and he will reward you with 400 Sapphire koins. He then
    asks you to do it again for:
    
    -->Side Mission 3 (B-4): "Scare the old man for his nephew's
    entertainment."
         If you talk to the nephew, he claims he will pay you double for
    scaring the old man again.
    
    > Solution: This time if you walk up behind him, he will see you and
    you won't complete the quest.  You have to walk around the little
    hut, and approach him from behind.  Do this, and talk to him again.
    He will then scream "OOOHHHHH, my heart!" and fall over dead. If you
    talk to the nephew again, he claims you are a murderer and doesn't
    pay you anything.
    
         Near this hut is a man with a Raiden hat on.  Speak with him
    for:
    
    -->Side Mission 4 (C-6): "Discover what is happening in the hut to
    the south."
         If you speak to the man with the Raiden hat on, he claims to
    hear noises in a hut south of where he is.  He says it sounds like
    someone fighting, and since Bo'Rai Cho is the only warrior here, is
    afraid.  He asks you to investigate the noises.
    
    > Solution: The hut in the same sector (C-6) is the one he speaks
    of.  Enter this house to find a member of Scorpion's clan who says
    that someone has found him.  He then disappears in a puff of smoke
    leaving a note behind.  Bring the note to the man, to learn that
    assassins are about.  The man gets scared and runs off leaving
    Shujinko no reward.
    
         After this mission, travel to location D-4 where a woman is
    standing outside a hut.  She tells you that a man tries to get into
    her house at night.  Meditate until that night, and punch the man as
    he tries to get in the house.  He then drops the "Lockpick Tools,"
    which can be used to get into locked houses/huts.  After this, go to
    a group of huts with a woman standing outside of some more huts.
    This will lead to:
    
    -->Side Mission 5 (C-5): "Discover why Bo'Rai Cho refuses to
    participate in the Mortal Kombat tournament."
         If you speak with this woman, she wonders why Bo'Rai Cho
    doesn't fight in the Mortal Kombat tournament, and instead trains
    youngsters to fight in his place.
    
    > Solution: You must have first gotten Bo'Rai Cho's medallion back
    for him in order to complete this quest; you must also have
    completed your Lin Kuei training with Sub-Zero.  After all of that,
    return to Cho's house (C-4) and talk to him.  Do not accept the
    request for training.  He will then offer you 600 Platinum koins.
    Speak with him again to learn that he is originally from Outworld,
    and will not compete on Outworld's behalf.  Return to the woman (C-
    5) who asked you to find out this answer and she will give you 500
    Platinum koins.
    
         If you travel to location A-6 , you will find:
    
    -->Side Mission 6 (A-6): "Locate a curative agent to aid the old
    man."
         At this location, you will find a man holding his back in front
    of a hut.  He says he was attacked, and need a kyra plant to heal
    him.  He says the plant is south of where he lives.
    
    > Solution: If you travel to location B-8, you will find the "Kyra
    Root" in between a bunch of trees.  Return this to the man for 400
    Onyx koins.
    
    At location C-7 is another chest which contains 300 Sapphire koins.
    
         If you travel to location C-7 which is the Temple of the Order
    of Light, you will find 75 Sapphire koins inside.
    
        At location A-4, Sindel awaits you in the woods.  She will
    challenge you to a fight where you start with 50% health and you are
    bleeding to death.  She can be pretty tough, as you have Bo'Rai Cho
    to fight as.  But use combos over and over and she will die.  When
    you defeat her you win 400 koins.
         If you find a white bridge, cross it.  You will then find a
    temple that is home to the White Lotus.  Speak to the man outside to
    learn about the Mortal Kombat tournament.  He then asks you to join
    the White Lotus.  This leads to:
    
    -->Side Mission 7 (E-4): "Gain membership in the White Lotus
    Society."
         Speak to the man at that location to learn about Mortal Kombat,
    then you will be invited to join the White Lotus.
    
    > Solution: Go to location D-4 and speak with the man there.  He
    will tell you to come back once you have learned enough to join the
    Mortal Kombat tournament as a member of the White Lotus.
    
         Inside the White Lotus temple, is a chest which contains 300
    Jade koins.  If you travel to location F-7  there will be a couple
    of huts close to each other.  A woman is standing outside one of
    them leading to:
    
    -->Side Mission 8 (F-7): "Find her father's lost sword."
         Speak with the woman standing outside of one of these huts, to
    learn her father has lost his sword.  Bring it back to her for a
    reward.
    
    > Solution: If you travel to location D-7, a forested area near the
    Temple of the Order of Light, you will find the sword for the woman.
    Return to her with the sword, and she will reward you with 500 Onyx
    koins.
    
         If you are on the beach (G-2) between 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.,
    you will see Kobra standing there; punch him to initiate a fight.
    You are poisoned, so your health gradually depletes.  He is pretty
    tough, but if you use combos and throws, he should go down.  After
    he is defeated, he drops a key to koffin "IP" which unlocks his
    alternate costume.
    
         When you get close to the Lin Kuei training area, speak with
    the man at G-7 which leads to:
    
    -->Side Mission 9 (G-7): "Deliver this mysterious package to his
    customer."
         Speak with the old man standing outside his hut near the Lin
    Kuei training ground to help him deliver a package to his customer
    in the far southwest village.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location A-6 and give the woman the package.
    She then tells you there are purple lotus in the package and not
    black like she was promised.  She gives you earrings to return to Lo
    as payment.  Run all the way back to Lo and he will give you 400
    Sapphire koins.
    
         After completing this quest, go to location G-6 which is very
    near to Lo's house.  You will see Jax standing in front of a bridge.
    Talk to him to engage in another battle.  In this battle only throws
    will damage him.  Just dodge his attacks and throw him until he
    dies.  After he dies, you will be allowed access to the area over
    the bridge.  8 or so throws should do the trick.  You need to beat
    him twice.  You are rewarded with 300 koins.
         If you get to location E-6, you will find Kira standing in
    between some trees.  She challenges you to Mortal Kombat.  You will
    start the match bleeding albeit with full health.  She tries some
    nasty combos, just dodge them and attack with Cho's combos.  Once
    defeated, she will reward you with 350 koins.
         At this time, we should probably head over to the beach where
    Bo'Rai Cho has lost his medallion.  So head over to location B-3.
    At this location are a couple of men talking on the beach.  They say
    to ask the fishermen at the end of the dock.  At location B-2, speak
    with the man at the dock.  He says he left it at his house for
    safekeeping.  Some brigands stole the medallion from his house
    however.  He asks Shujinko to get the key to his house from the
    brigands.  So, travel to C-2, and speak with the man with the green
    aura above his head.  He says the only way the old man will get his
    tackle box back is if he comes and takes it himself.  So punch this
    guy in the face and take the key back to the old man.  He will then
    offer you to come inside to take the medallion.  Go inside, take the
    medallion, and leave.
         You will meet with Damashi again before leaving the beach.  He
    says that he has not made any progress regarding the Kamidogu.  But
    it is good you have Cho's medallion.  Damashi tells Shujinko to keep
    the medallion, and not return it to Bo'Rai Cho, to give him a
    reputation among warriors.
         We now need to go to point G-8 to speak with the Lin Kuei.  You
    speak with a man who says you cannot enter the building, but
    Shujinko then claims to have the warrior's Medallion to which the
    guard lets you in to train with Sub-Zero...
    
    -->   Sub-Zero: "Greetings, initiate.  I am Sub-Zero, your
    instructor.  Your Lin Kuei training begins with Shotokan basic high
    attacks."
    
    > Rising Thrust Kick: Tap - 3
    > Thrust Kick: Tap - 4
    > Side Snap Kick: Tap - Toward+3
    
    -->   Sub-Zero: "You have graduated to low attacks.  Begin with

    Mission Complete!
    
         You are now a member of the Lin Kuei.  Your first assignment,
    is to go West where some Lin Kuei warriors have secured an ancient
    artifact.  This artifact is supposedly very beneficial to the clan.
    You need to retrieve it for them, and the password is "ice dragon."
    Before leaving for the west, you can spar with members of the Lin
    Kuei who are training there.  Just punch one, and a fight will
    commence.  You win 400 koins for beating a warrior.  Before you go
    to find the rest of you clan in the west, we still need to complete
    a sidequest or two.
    
         At location D-5 is a man wandering the riverbank.  He gives
    you:
    
    -->Side Mission 10 (D-5): "Find the man's lost promise ring."
         If you speak with this man, he says he lost a ring for his
    wife.  He wants you to help him find it.
    
    > Solution: To find the ring, travel to location F-3.  It is an area
    filled with many tree stumps.  In the upper right most area (closest
    to the lake) is the ring.  It is only visible in the day however.
    Return it to the man and he will offer you 500 Ruby koins.
    
         Travel to location F-3 (a big temple with an armed man standing
    in front of it) for:
    
    -->Side Mission 11 (F-3): "Seek out the purpose of the great stone
    circle that lies to the east."
         If you speak with this man, he tells you he is from the United
    Nations, sent to investigate strange circles of stones that are
    here.  He asks you to find out what they are for and return to him.
    
    > Solution: You must have first used to the portal to travel to the
    Netherrealm in order to complete this quest.  Once you travel to the
    Netherrealm, come back here and speak with the man.  He is astounded
    that you can teleport back and forth and offers you 600 Sapphire
    koins.
    
         It doesn't matter when or if you do this, but at point E-3,
    near a group of trees is Darrius.  He is standing there and
    challenges you to Mortal Kombat.  It is a regular two out of three
    round fight except for the fact that you cannot block.  He is pretty
    quick, but dodging and combos are your friends.  After defeating
    him, you receive 350 koins.
         If you go back to location G-8, you will find a man in a red
    robe.  Speak to him for:
    
    -->Side Mission 12 (G-8): "Find and defeat the Shirai-Ryu to prove
    your loyalty."
         If you speak to this man, he tells you that you have not proven
    anything to the Lin Kuei.  He wants you to find members of this
    rival clan and get rid of them.  He needs proof that you are loyal
    to the Lin Kuei by ridding the countryside of the Shirai-Ryu.
    
    > Solution: Return to location A-8, and speak with the woman holding
    her back here.  She will tell you that the Lin Kuei are no match for
    the Shirai-Ryu.  After that, you will have to battle Scorpion with
    only 33% health.  If you defeat him you win 300 koins.  After you
    defeat him, go to location E-8 and pick up the Shirai-Ryu mask that
    was left there.  Return to the Lin Kuei headquarters and speak with
    the man who doubted your skill.  He will reward you with 400
    Sapphire koins for ridding the area of Shirai-Ryu.
    
         After you have completed all the side quests you want to,
    travel to location B-8.  Shujinko will look around and wonder where
    he is supposed to go.  Run to those trees beyond the green aura (A-
    8).  You will find a Lin Kuei warrior guarding a secret passage.
    Talk to him to find out that the Red Dragon are near, and they will
    stop at nothing to get their hands on this artifact.  The warrior
    goes to distract the Red Dragon, allowing you time to take the
    artifact and bring it back to the Lin Kuei temple.
         After you take the artifact, you meet with Damashi again.  He
    tells Shujinko that he has found the Kamidogu.  Damashi then tells
    you to find the portal, the Nexus, and not to ally with the Lin
    Kuei; he reminds him that he is working with the Elder Gods.
         We now have a new mission, to find the Nexus.  Follow the green
    aura in the distance to location H-3.  Shujinko raises the Kamidogu
    which activates the portal.  He then steps inside...  He is
    transported to an area with many more portals.  Damashi shows up to
    tell Shujinko that this is the Nexus.  He says that these portals
    are to the different realms and that each time he recovers a piece
    of the Kamidogu, he should place it on the altar which then opens up
    another portal to a different realm.  When Shujinko places the
    Kamidogu for Earthrealm on the altar, the portal to the Netherrealm
    opens up.
         *NOTE*If you didn't/couldn't complete all of the quests in
    Earthrealm, fear not, as you can travel between these realms at
    will.  For now, though, head into the Netherrealm portal.*NOTE*
    
    ====================================================================
    
    +~-~-~-~-~-~+
    |Netherrealm|
    +~-~-~-~-~-~+
    
         After entering the portal the Kamidogu opened, you will be
    inside the Netherrealm.  Damashi immediately appears and starts
    talking to you, telling you that this place is dark.  And that only
    evil resides in the Netherrealm to which Shujinko says he is not
    evil.  Damashi responds by saying that "joining" the Lin Kuei has
    corrupted him a bit.  He says you must venture into the planes of
    Hell to find the piece of Kamidogu in the Netherrealm.  And with
    that, he disappears.
         You are now on your own to explore this wretched, evil place.
    As per always, there are many, many random koins of varying value
    and type lying about; there are also koins in almost every "house"
    here as well.  There is a green aura over Ashra's head at point (),
    but we should complete some sidequests first.  Head on over to (C-8)
    for:
    
    -->Side Mission 1 (C-8, the hut with three guards surrounding it):
    "Tell three guards about the gathering."
         If you walk inside the "house" here, you will find a guard.
    Speak to him and he tells you he needs you to tell three other
    guards that there will be a meeting.  If you refuse, you will be
    tortured.
    
    > Solution: The guards are just outside the hut (C-7).  Two of them
    are standing to the left and right of the entrance, and the other
    one is pacing back and forth to the left of the hut.  Speak with all
    three of them to inform them of the meeting.  They will then run
    inside.  Talk to the guard that gave you the quest, and he will
    reward you with 600 Gold koins.
    
         If you talk to a guard at C-7, he will recognize you as a
    guard, and will reward you with 15 Gold koins for no reason.
    
    At location, is a man wearing a red robe.  Talk to him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 2 (A-8): "Find a Sorcerer to remove the curse from
    the sword."
         If you talk to this man walking back and forth, he will tell
    you he cannot hold on to his sword anymore as it has been cursed to
    burn his skin.  He asks you to find a Sorcerer to remove the curse,
    and offers to pay you as well.  You now have the "Cursed Sword."
    
    > Solution: Travel to location A-6 and enter the hut here.  Inside
    is a sorcerer.  He then cleanses your sword.  You now have the
    "Uncursed Sword."  Return to, and give it to the man.  He will tell
    you that he can now take the sword into battle with him and reward
    you with 500 Platinum koins.
    
    If you talk to a man at location (A-7), he will give you:
    
    -->Side Mission 3 (A-7): "Find and punch the oni who stole the
    spellbook and return it to its owner."
         If you talk to one of the men in red robes at, he will tell you
    his book was stolen by an oni.  He wants you to retrieve it for him,
    and will bestow riches upon you In return.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location C-6 (near Ashrah).  You will see an
    oni standing there.  Approach him, and he will sneer "The book is
    MINE!" and run off.  Chase him down and punch him to recover the
    book.  Return it to the mage and he will conjure up a valuable item
    in for you, 500 Ruby koins to be exact.
    
    If you talk to a Brotherhood of the Shadow member, wandering about
    he will give you:
    
    -->Side Mission 4 (C-7): "Find a Brotherhood of Shadow member's lost
    wristblades."
       If you talk to this man, he will tell you that he lost his
    wristblades somewhere in the city.  He asks for you to return them.
    This guy walks around the whole city, I think, so he may be in a
    different location than stated above.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location A-5 (near the three guards standing
    over a dead body) to retrieve the wristblades.  Return to the Shadow
    member, and he will tell you he can slay demons once again.  400
    Platinum koins will be your reward.
    
    If you go inside the building guarded by soldiers (B-5), and talk to
    the man at the far end of the house he gives you:
    
    -->Side Mission 5 (B-5): "Find Sareena for the Brotherhood of
    Shadow."
         If you talk to the guy at the back of the room, he will tell
    you that Sareena, (a member of the Brotherhood of Shadow) has been
    missing for some time.  He fears that she abandoned them and is
    aiding an Earthrealm warrior.  He asks for your assistance in
    finding her.
    
    > Solution: Sareena is located in area D-8 (the left side of a
    circular building).  Approach her, and she will tell you that she
    does not want you to report back to the Brotherhood of Shadow.  She
    then tells you that she realizes that this puts your life in peril,
    and offers you 500 Sapphire koins as compensation.  If you return to
    the Brotherhood building, the leader will tell you that they will
    flay your soul if they find out that you were talking with Sareena.
    
         Shang Tsung can be found at location C-8.  Speak with him and
    the screen will say, "You have interrupted Shang Tsung's journey
    into the Netherrealm.  Will you defend yourself against his wrath?"
    If you select OK you will engage in Mortal Kombat.
         Shang Tsung is not too tough as he is the same as he was in
    Deadly Alliance, predictable moves and all.  You start the match
    bleeding, while Shang Tsung regains health.  He uses his Snake
    stance a lot, so be on the look out for any quick combos.  Do not
    let up, be relentless in your attacks, as you are losing health, and
    he is gaining it.  After you defeat him, he rewards you with 400
    koins.
         Shinnok can be found at location C-7.  Speak with him for:
    
    -->Side Mission 6 (C-8): "Find Quan Chi's amulet for Shinnok."
         If you speak with Shinnok, you will learn that he was banished
    to the Netherrealm unjustly many ages ago.  He then tells you that
    Quan Chi has left his amulet somewhere in the city.  If you recover
    it, he will grant you a "large sum of money."
    
    > Solution: If you travel to location A-5, you will find "Quan Chi's
    Fake Amulet."  Return this phony to Shinnok, and he will reward you
    with 500 Platinum koins after telling you that the amulet looks a
    bit different.  He then goes on to say that the next time we meet,
    he will be the supreme ruler of all the realms.
    
    If you travel to location A-8, you will see Jarek.  Speak with him
    to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 7 (A-8): "Locate three oni teeth for Jarek."
         He tells you that the Netherrealm is a very unnerving place to
    be.  He then goes on to say that he wants to be the most "toughest
    bastard" in the Black Dragon.  He wants to do this by finding and
    killing three oni to take their teeth.  Because he is a coward, he
    asks you to complete this task for him.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location A-7 for the first tooth (near a woman
    staring at a skeleton on the ground).  The second tooth is found
    outside of the Netherrealm village (accessible only after training
    with Ashrah); travel to location D-5 to find it.  The third and
    final tooth is found at location A-4 (also outside the "village").
    Return to Jarek (A-8) and he will reward you with 600 Jade koins.
    
         After completing all the possible sidequests in the "village"
    area, it is now time to go to location C-6, to train with Ashrah.
    Approach her and Shujinko says that she does not look like a demon
    of the Netherrealm.  Ashrah then says she was once like the others,
    but she found something that can purge her.  Her sword, she says has
    allowed her to transform her into a being this realm cannot contain
    by slaying demons with it.  She then says Shujinko does not look
    like he belongs here, to which he retorts he is from Earthrealm.
    Ashrah then says that she is offering to train him to protect him
    from the evil denizens that reside here.  Off we go to...
    
    -->   Ashrah: "The first techniques you must learn are the Chou Jaio
    high attacks."

    -->   Ashrah: "In the wastes of the Netherrealm, you will need
    special moves.  Let us see how well you learn this one."
    
    > Heavenly Light: Tap - Down, Back+1
    > Heavenly Light: Tap - Down, Back+1
    
    -->   Ashrah: "Well done.  This next one will fill an oni's black
    heart with dread."
    
    > Lightning Blast: Tap - Down, Toward+1
    > Lightning Blast: Tap - Down, Toward+1
    
    -->   Ashrah: "Impressive!  You are quickly becoming a demon slayer.
    Let us try another special move."
    
    > Spin Cycle: Tap - Down, Up+3
    > Spin Cycle: Tap - Down, Up+3
    
    -->   Ashrah: "You are learning quickly, but you still have one left
    to master."
    
    > Nature's Torpedo: Tap - Toward, Toward+4
    > Nature's Torpedo: Tap - Toward, Toward+4
    
    -->   Ashrah: "You have learned my special attacks.  They work well
    against most demons, but can you execute them against me?"
    
    > Heavenly Light, Lightning Blast, Nature's Torpedo, Spin Cycle,
    Lightning Blast, Nature's Torpedo, Spin Cycle.
    
    -->   Ashrah: "I have taught you much, Shujinko.  But to be sure you
    understand all that I have taught you, I must test you in battle.
    FIGHT!"
    
    > Ashrah isn't that hard as long as you sidestep her combos and let
    out a style branch of your own.  Nature's Torpedo, and Spin Cycle
    are good Special Moves to use against her as well.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         After defeating Ashrah, she tells you she has taught you the
    techniques for defeating the demons of the Netherrealm.  She then
    says that test is in order and for you to meet her somewhere outside
    the gates.  She says she will find you a suitable opponent, to which
    Shujinko readily accepts the offer.
         You are now allowed outside of the confines of this small
    "village."  There are many koins out here, randomly lying about, and
    in houses and huts.  Be wary though, as many of these denizens are
    zombies, and if approached, will punch you straight in the face.
    Before we go to the green aura, there are some sidequests we should
    complete:
    
         After exiting the "village," immediately turn left.  In the
    corner at C-5, is Nightwolf.  Speak with him for:
    
    -->Side Mission 8 (C-5): "Find the oni who stole the Bear Totem."
         If you speak with Nightwolf at C-5, he will tell you that a
    powerful talisman, the Bear Totem, has been stole from his people
    and brought to this wretched place.  He asks you to find it, and
    says he believes it is to the east.
    
    > Solution: After speaking with Nightwolf, cross the bridge across
    from the entrance to the village (D-6).  A cutscene occurs with an
    oni telling you to that the totem is his, and to keep away.  He then
    proceeds to run off; chase him down and punch him.  He drops the
    "Bear Totem."  Return this to Nightwolf and he offers you 500
    Sapphire koins.
    
         If you travel to location D-6 (to the right of the entrance to
    the village), you will find a lone oni standing here.  He gives you:
    
    -->Side Mission 9 (D-6): "Find a shield for an oni and return it to
    him."
         If you speak with this oni, he will tell you that it is true
    that a very powerful oni was slain many ages ago in these
    wastelands.  He then goes on to say that he always carried a bone
    shield with him in battle.  He asks you to recover this shield for a
    reward.
    
    > Solution: At location F-7 is a skeleton.  Hovering above this
    skeleton, is the "Bone Shield" the oni spoke of.  Nab it, and return
    to D-6.  The oni will reward you with 400 Ruby koins.
    
         If you travel to location E-8, you will encounter Noob Saibot
    standing in between two rock formations.  If you speak with him you
    will engage in kombat.  These match will be fought in Dark Kombat
    meaning the screen will go completely black for a few seconds at a
    time.  Noob Saibot doesn't block much, so use some style-branching
    combos to defeat him.  Good luck!  Once defeated, you will earn 300
    koins.
         Staying on the topic of fighting Mortal Kombat characters, if
    you travel to location F-7, you will find Havik standing there.
    Approach him to engage in more kombat.  This match sees him healing
    constantly.  He isn't too hard as all you need to do is sidestep his
    fast Snake combos, and follow-up with your style-branchers.  After
    you have defeated him in two rounds, he will reward you with 350
    koins.
         If you travel to location F-3, you will encounter Moloch.
    Speak with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 10 (F-3): "Find Drahmin for Moloch."
         If you speak with Moloch he tells you of a cave nearby in which
    there are dead bodies with which to feast.  He asks you to find
    Drahmin and tell him that they need these bodies to eat.
    
    > Solution: If you go inside the village, you will find Drahmin
    pacing around locations C-6 or D-6.  Speak with him and he complains
    about how Moloch wants this and that.  Then he realizes that he must
    have the "device" and food.  That prompts Drahmin to fetch it
    immediately and reward you with 500 Onyx koins in the process.
    
         At location  B-3, in between some rocky formations, you will
    find Kenshi.  You will then engage in kombat.  The only way to
    defeat Kenshi in this match is to throw him.  About 5 or 6 throws a
    round should do the trick.  He is not too hard, just watch out for
    the Katana as it is fast and does a lot of damage.  Defeat him for
    300 koins.
    
         At this point, we should head over to the green aura (A-2).
    Once there, we see Baraka and Ashrah arguing.  We learn that an
    assassin was sent to kill Ashrah, because of how many demons she has
    slain with her blade.  Kombat then begins.  It is you (Ashrah)
    versus Baraka.  He is pretty quick and his blades do a lot of
    damage.  Do some kombos, and you should be fine.  Nature's Torpedo
    works well here.  You will earn 400 koins for defeating Baraka.
    Ashrah then says that Tarkatan warrior was a mutated hybrid.  Ashrah
    then asks Shujinko to lead Ermac to her, as if he is killed, Ashrah
    will be able to leave this place.  Shujinko gladly helps Ashrah out.
         Travel to location C-4 to see Ermac pacing back and forth.
    Approach him, and Shujinko will tell him that he is looking for a
    demon he is to deliver to someone.  Ermac says he is looking for a
    demon as well.  Ermac says that ever since "We" have been in the
    Netherrealm, "Our" powers have been weakening.  He asks Shujinko to
    find a Soul Stone, which will help them regain their powers.  He
    then offers Shujinko a training session with him as reward.
         If you travel to location E-5, you will see that the green aura
    has led you to a portal to the Nexus.  Approach the light and
    Shujinko will realize this is the Soul Stone "that warrior
    mentioned."  He then says he needs to inform him of it.  Travel back
    to C-4 and speak with Ermac again.  Ermac says that it is indeed the
    Soul Stone and that he feels his strength returning.  Ermac then
    tells Shujinko of the Soul Stone and portals history.  After that,
    he will teach you his skills...
    
    -->   Ermac: "The fighting styles We will show you are but a taste
    of Our kombat knowledge.  We will begin with Hua Chuan high attacks.
    
    > Thigh Punch: Tap - 1
    > Fast Hammer Strike: Tap - 2

    > Grasping Fingers: Tap - 1, 1, 2
    > Bloody Master: Tap - 1, 1, 4
    
    -->   Ermac: "The Axe may be a heavy weapon, but you must train your

    > Overhead Slice: Tap - 1
    > Downward Blade: Tap - 2

    -->   Ermac: "In battle, We may be required to use any one of Our

    We will not make it easy for you."
    
    > Mystic Float+Mystic Bomb, Tele-Kinetic Slam, Hado-Energy,
    Telekinetic Throw, Tele-Kinetic Slam, Hado-Energy, Telekinetic
    Throw, Mystic Float+Dive Kick.
    
    -->   Ermac: "For your final test, you must defeat Us in
    battle...FIGHT!
    
    > Ermac isn't too hard.  He has short, combos that do little damage.
    His Axe is his most powerful weapon, so use it often.  His Special
    Moves also work great.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         After the training/battle, Shujinko finds out that the demon
    Ermac is trying to find is Ashrah.  Ermac is looking for Ashrah
    because she has slain many of Shao Kahn's warriors in the
    Netherrealm.  Shujinko then tells Ermac that Ashrah is looking for
    him too; he then reveals her location, while Ermac runs off to it.
         There are still things to do here, including unlocking
    Ashrah's, and Nightwolf's alternate costumes.  Unfortunately, the
    areas that hold these items are blocked off until you complete
    Konquest.  There are also a few characters that can be sparred with,
    but they too, only become available after completing Konquest.
         With that information, off we go to the next green aura (B-3).
    We then see Ermac and Ashrah about to square off.  Ashrah says she
    is about to purify herself by killing Ermac.  Ermac then says that
    she killed many Netherrealm warriors, and she will pay for her
    insolence.  With that, off we go to engage in more Mortal Kombat.
         This time, it is you, playing as Ermac, versus Ashrah.  She is
    very quick, and her weapon can do some damage.  Stick with the
    quick, combos, and then follow up with some weapon attacks.  As
    always, Ermac's Special Moves are good to use too.
         After defeating Ashrah, you will earn 400 koins.  Ermac asks
    Ashrah if that is all she has.  She says, no, and more he shall
    receive, before charging at him.  We are now back in control of
    Shujinko; directly in front of him is another piece of the Kamidogu.
    Retrieve it, and bring it to the village (C-6).  Shujinko then calls
    out for Damashi.  He appears and says that they have not seen each
    other in a long time for Damashi avoids this place because it
    weakens him.  Damashi hopes to return to the physical world one day.
    Shujinko then tells him that he found the Kamidogu from the
    Netherrealm, and Damashi says to bring it to the Nexus through the
    portal.
         Off we go to the portal from the Netherrealm (B-8).  Step
    inside, and once in the Nexus, you will be interrupted by a false
    champion of the Elder Gods.  He says he is here to protect the
    Nexus, and says that you have defiled it.  He then challenges you to
    kombat.  He fights pretty much like Scorpion (he has his fighting
    styles), and shouldn't be too hard to beat.  You have to be Ermac,
    so use the same strategy as with Ashrah.  After he is defeated you
    earn 800 Gold koins.  Proceed into the Chaosrealm portal.
         *NOTE* There are still some sidequests, and battles with the
    Mortal Kombat characters left in the Netherrealm.  Unfortunately, we
    must complete Konquest in order for those to be accessible.  These
    sidequests and battles will be listed later in the Walkthrough
    *NOTE*
    
    ====================================================================
    
    +-~-~-~-~-~+
    |Chaosrealm|
    +-~-~-~-~-~+
    
         After entering the portal this piece of the Kamidogu opened,
    you will be transported to the Chaosrealm.  Damashi immediately
    appears.  Shujinko asks who the warrior was in the Nexus; Damashi
    doesn't know.  Shujinko then tells Damashi that the warrior said he
    was the Elder God's Chosen Warrior.  Damashi says he is mistaken, as
    you are the champion.  Damashi says to continue your search in the
    realm of chaos; the nature of this realm is of constant chaos.
         You start out in a small area with many people walking around;
    you can talk to them if you like to learn about the Chaosrealm.
    Hotaru is pacing back and forth with the green aura above his head.
    In order to continue on in this realm, you must speak to Hotaru to
    engage in kombat.  The match is a regular two out of three.  He is
    not too hard, as you have used Ermac a lot recently.  You receive
    450 koins for defeating him.  You now have access to the rest of the
    Chaosrealm through the transporter with the green aura above it (C-
    3).
         After stepping onto the transporter, you are transported
    straight across the gap.  You are still in location C-3.  As with
    every other realm before it, there are many koins scattered about
    for you to pick up; there are also numerous chests containing keys
    or koins.  Before we get into the meat of the Chaosrealm, we should
    complete a sidequest:
    
         If you speak with the Shirai-Ryu member pacing back and forth
    in front of the first teleporter (C-3), you will receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 1 (C-3): "Locate the fallen Shirai-Ryu clansman and
    return Scorpion's mask to him."
         If you speak with this ninja, he will tell you that he has
    heard rumors a fellow clansman has been slain in this realm.  He
    wants to know the truth, and asks you to bring his mask back to him
    as proof if you happen across it.
    
    > Solution: After talking with Havik, you will be allowed access to
    a part of C-2 inaccessible before.  Travel here, and you will find a
    dead Shirai-Ryu member on the ground.  Inspect him to receive the
    "Shirai-Ryu" mask.  Return to the other Shirai-Ryu member, and he
    will offer you 400 Ruby koins.
    
         At location C-2 is a man walking to and fro in a long, dark
    robe.  He tells Shujinko of something or someone who has put a curse
    on the graveyard behind him.  Shujinko then asks the man if he can
    confront this infiltrator and put him in his place.  The robed man
    tells Shujinko to go ahead and fight "it."
         If you continue onward into the graveyard to location B-2, you
    will see Noob Saibot wandering around with a green aura above his
    head.  Approach him and Shujinko asks him if he is the wraith who
    has taken this land for himself.  Saibot, responds he has taken this
    place of the dead for the Brotherhood of Shadow, and challenges him
    to kombat.  All you have to do is defeat Noob Saibot two out of
    three rounds.  He is pretty quick, but his combos are slow, and
    don't do much damage.  You are best off using Special Moves and
    quick combos to whittle down his health bar.  Once he is defeated,
    you will earn 450 Onyx koins.
         With Noob Saibot gone from the graveyard, you now have access
    to the previously inaccessible gate behind one of the temples.
    Before we venture out there though, we need to pick up another
    sidequest so head to A-3 to find Kira:
    
    -->Side Mission 2 (A-3): "Find the riddle to this warrior's identity
    in the temple ruins and return it to her."
         If you speak with Kira in the graveyard, she tells you that
    chaos warps the mind and has caused her to forget who she is.  She
    asks that you retrieve a scroll for her in the temple ruins.
    
    > Solution: After having beaten Konquest Mode travel to area H-6
    where you will find a teleporter.  Take this teleported to area E-8
    and then travel to location G-6.  Here you will find the scroll with
    Kira's identity on it.  Return it to her and she will offer you 400
    Jade koins.  You will also be asked to train with her at this time.
    Accept it to train with Kira...
    
         As you continue on your path to the next green aura, you will
    see Darrius walking around at location A-1.  If you speak with him,
    you will initiate a battle.  You must defeat Darrius during an
    EaRtHquAkE!  The ground will suddenly start to rumble as you fight
    causing you to lose life; Darrius will also lost life too.  It isn't
    too distracting, so just concentrate on the fight and you should win
    easily.  You must win two rounds out of three, and once you do you
    will receive 300 koins.
         After fighting and defeating Darrius, continue on the path
    toward the green aura (C-1).  Kabal will be walking around the
    transporter at location B-1, so speak with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 3 (B-1): "Bring the Earthrealm map to the temple
    ruins and return to Kabal for a reward."
         If you speak with Kabal here, he will tell you he has found a
    map to Earthrealm from a dead traveler.  He asks Shujinko to hide it
    in one of the temples.  If he does this, a reward is in order.
    
    > Solution: This quest can be completed only after having beaten
    Konquest Mode.  Once you have beaten Konquest, return to location H-
    6.  You will find a teleporter here that was unavailable to you
    before.  Step on it to be transported to the temple ruins at
    location E-8.  Once you step off of it, the screen will tell you
    that you hid the map.  Once the map is hidden return to Kabal at
    location B-1.  Speak with Kabal and you will receive 400 Ruby koins
    as payment.
    
         After completing his quest, speak with him again to engage in
    kombat.  You have to be Kira, and you have to beat him 3 times
    without blocking.  He is pretty tough, but you can do it.  Use
    Kira's small combos, and her Dagger combos.  Her Special Moves also
    work relatively well.  Once Kabal is defeated, you will win 500
    Platinum koins, and he will drop the key to koffin "DA" which
    unlocks his Alt. Costume.
    
         After speaking with Kabal, step onto the transporter, to be
    sent to location F-1.  Continue down to your right to location E-2.
    The green aura will be above Havik's head.  Speak with him to learn
    that there are four Seidan guards in Chaosrealm that seek to
    restrict the flow of water; they want the water for themselves.
    Havik asks you to find and defeat these four Seidan guards, and
    place a pendant around their neck.  If you do this for him, he will
    reward you with training.
         After speaking with Havik, the doors behind him will open.  You
    will now be allowed access to a praying ground.  There will be many
    monks before you bowing their heads to a temple.  At location E-2 is
    yet another green aura above a transporter.  Step aboard to be sent
    to E-3.
         After stepping off the teleporter at location E-3, you will
    find Dairou walking around.  Speak with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 4 (E-3): "Locate Kobra and defeat him in battle."
         If you speak with Dairou, he will tell you that he was sent
    here to assassinate a member of the Black Dragon, Kobra.  Kobra
    knows what he (Dairou) looks like however, and asks you to find and
    kill him for him.  If you do this, he will reward you with half of
    the payment he receives.
    
    > Solution: You must have completed Konquest Mode in order for you
    to be able to do this quest.  Once Konquest is beaten return to
    location H-6.  There will be a teleporter here that was previously
    unavailable to you.  Step on it to be transported to area E-8.  Step
    off the teleporter and walk to location H-7.  Here you will find
    Kobra standing between some stone structures.  Speak with him and he
    will ask you to challenge him.  Accept the offer and prepare for
    some training...
    
         After you have beaten Konquest, you can travel to location E-5.
    Here you will find a man walking around with a big axe, and a hooded
    robe.  Speak with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 5 (E-5): "Tell lies to the leaders of the Yanasi and
    Yanges tribes to start a war."
         If you speak with this man, he tells you that he wants you to
    lie to two tribes in order for them to start a war.
    
    > Solution:
    
         If you travel to location G-6, you will see a woman happily
    skipping about.  Speak with her to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 6 (G-6): "Find the woman again who gave you this
    note and deliver it to her."
         If you speak wit the woman skipping about, she will tell you
    that she wishes someone would deliver this note to her later on.
    She then leaves you with the "Odd Note."
    
    > Solution:
    
         If you travel to location G-1 (a long winding path, behind some
    temples) you will encounter Smoke.  Speak with him to engage in
    kombat.  Smoke will be invisible for the entire round.  He shouldn't
    be too hard, just block a lot and you should win pretty easily.
    After you defeat him (it's only one round), you will receive 350
    Sapphire koins.
         Continuing on this path to location H-2, will be Mileena.
    Speak with her to engage in more kombat.  She will be healing the
    entire time, and you will need to defeat her 3 times.  This fight
    can be hard.  I just keep doing the same combo over and over to her.
    Throws also work well here.  A very cheap way to defeat her is to
    keep using the Back+1 move with Ermac's Axe.  It does a lot of
    damage, and should kill her relatively easily.  Once she is defeated
    you will earn 350 Jade koins.
         Once you have battled to your hearts content, travel to
    location G-3 (where the green aura is).  You will have to travel up
    a small ramp; at the top is a robed man.  Speak with him to learn
    that he is there to try and screw with their pumps.  Shujinko then
    asks where these intruders are to which the man replies, in the four
    corners of this facility.  Now that we know that, head to the left
    of this man to G-2.  There is a green aura above a man walking
    around.  Approach him and prepare for kombat!  You are facing Hotaru
    again.  He is pretty easy, but you play as Bo'Rai Cho, so you may
    need to brush up on your skills a bit.  After defeating him two out
    of three rounds, you will 400 Jade koins.
         Continue straight down the path to location G-1.  This is
    pretty much the same fight as before, except you now play as Sub-
    Zero.  I find Sub-Zero to be the easiest to play as character so
    far.  Use fancy combos, and the Cold Shoulder move to make quick
    work of this Seidan guard.  Once he is defeated you earn 400
    Platinum koins.  Continue on down this path to the next green aura
    (H-1).  This time you play as Ashrah.  She is kind of hard to play
    as, but use a lot of Special Moves, and small Kriss combos to beat
    this guy.  Once defeated you will win 400 Ruby koins.  The last
    Seidan Guardsman is at location H-2.  You will now fight as Ermac in
    this battle.  His Special Moves are the best to use here.  Small,
    quick combos are also good as well as his Axe.  Once he is defeated,
    you earn 450 Jade koins.
         After defeating the last Guardsman, return to location G-3.
    Shujinko will have converted these Guardsman to the ways of chaos.
    The man says Havik will be most pleased, and that he waits for you
    in the towns to the south.  Run back down the ramp to the next green
    aura (G-4).  Havik will be standing there; speak with him to learn
    that he has sent them back to the world of Seidan.  Shujinko will
    then bring up the fact that Havik promised to teach him the ways of
    chaos for cleansing Chaosrealm of the Seidan Guards.  So off we go...
    
    -->   Havik: "Now, Shujinko, we will see how you fare against my

    > Diving Corpse: Tap - Back, Down+1
    
    -->   Havik: "Have I disturbed your fragile mind?  Now I will crush
    it!"
    
    > Crackling Legs Projectile: Tap - Back, Toward+3
    > Crackling Legs Projectile: Tap - Back, Toward+3
    
    -->   Havik: "My body contorts in ways it was not meant to be!  Such
    is the way of Chaos!"
    
    > Head Snap: Tap - Back, Toward+2
    > Corpse Taunt: Tap - Back, Toward+4
    
    -->   Havik: "I have given you a taste, but will you survive all of
    them?"

    Spin, Head Snap, Crackling Legs Projectile, Corpse Taunt, Diving
    Corpse, Torso Spin, Head Snap.
    
    -->   Havik: "I must apologize.  I have restrained myself by
    attacking you one move at a time.  Now I will not hold back!"
    
    > Havik is pretty easy to fight.  He has some quick combos in Snake,
    but other than that, he should be pretty easy.  Since Head Snap
    regains some lost health, use it if need be.  Use the Morning Star
    for some big hits.  Once he is defeated you will have completed the
    training.
    
         After training is complete, Shujinko questions Havik's
    intentions during the training.  He asks him if he meant to kill
    him, and Havik responds that he did mean to.  But since Shujinko
    defeated him, Havik rewards him with the "Portal Key."  Take this
    key to location G-5 (right next to Havik), and hop aboard.  This
    will transport you to location C-5.  Here you will find many more
    random koins lying about as well as some chests.  When you are done
    exploring head to location A-5 (the green aura).
         At location A-5, is a floating piece of the Kamidogu.  Shujinko
    walked through the shallow pool, and felt dizzy as if the world was
    passing him by.  Damashi then says he found the Chaosrealm Kamidogu.
    Shujinko says he think he has changed.  Damashi says time has
    passed, and the labyrinth has caused time to pass.  Shujinko says he
    feels older because of the strange pool.  Damashi says the elder
    Gods will be pleased at his progress.  After this cutscene, you will
    be transported back to D-3 (the green aura).  As of this time, this
    is all we can do in the Chaosrealm.  Fret not, as we will be back
    here in no time after we beat Konquest Mode.  As with every other
    realm we have been to, we can come back any time we want, but some
    of the items, and keys will not become available until after
    completing Konquest.  So step inside the portal to be transported
    back to the Nexus.  Step up to the altar, and place Chaosrealm's
    piece of the Kamidogu onto the altar to open up Outworld...
    
    ====================================================================
    
    +~-~-~--~+
    |Outworld|
    +~-~-~-~-+
    
         After stepping through the fourth portal, you will transported
    to the realm known as Outworld.  This is where a few of the actual
    Mortal Kombat games took place, and it is also where Shao Kahn, and
    Onaga (the Dragon King) hail from.  Don't worry though, we will have
    a fun time here.
         Upon exiting the portal, we will be greeted by Damashi once
    again.  He welcomes you and says that Shao Kahn is a thief and
    deceiver.  He then says that under Shao Kahn's rule, Outworld was
    separated and very dangerous.  Shujinko then asks who ruled Outworld
    before Shao Kahn to which Damashi responds Onaga, the Dragon King.
    Damashi says that under Onaga, Outworld was unified.  Damashi then
    tells Shujinko to be careful to which Shujinko responds saying he
    will keep his eyes open.  It is time to engage in some Kombat!
         As always keep your eyes open for any stray koins laying about,
    as well as chests that contain koins and keys.  You start with a
    bridge to the left and right of you.  You should take the left
    bridge for now to location D-2.  At this location, you will find
    Smoke walking around.  Approach him for kombat!  This match is two
    out of three rounds, and is fought in Dark Kombat meaning the screen
    will go completely dark for a few seconds at a time.  Use Ermac's
    Special Moves to keep Smoke at bay, and use his Axe to inflict heavy
    damage.  Once he is defeated you will earn 300 Sapphire koins.
         At location B-1, you will encounter Noob Saibot again.
    Approach him to engage in Mortal Kombat.  You only need to beat him
    one round, and this match has you fighting in Dark Kombat again,
    meaning the screen completely flashes black for a few seconds at a
    time.  Same tactics apply.  Once he is defeated, you will earn 300
    Onyx koins.
         After you defeat Noob Saibot, continue on down the path to C-1.
    Speak with the woman walking around here for:
    
    -->Side Mission 1 (C-1): "Find the orb and return it to the woman."
         If you speak with this woman, you will find out that she is a
    native of Outworld, and that her former realm had been merged with
    Outworld; this merge is holding together because of an orb.  The
    woman wants you to find this orb for her.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location C-4 (inside a circular set of rock)
    to find the "Mysterious Orb."  Return to C-1 and give it to the
    woman.  She offers you some "gems" which equal 400 Ruby koins.
    
         In area D-1, you will find Bo'Rai Cho pacing back and forth in
    front of his house.  Approach him for even more kombat.  This match
    is two out of three rounds and has you trying to defeat Bo'Rai Cho
    in 30 seconds.  Throws work good here as do quick combos.  After Cho
    is defeated, you will earn 300 Jade koins.
         After you have defeated Bo'Rai Cho, travel to location A-4,
    where you will encounter Kobra walking around.  Approach him for
    some more kombat.  You have to defeat Kobra three times to earn his
    reward.  The same tactics apply here.  Special Moves, and short
    quick combos.  He is not too tough, as he does not block too often.
    Once he is defeated, you will earn 300 Platinum koins.
         At location F-4 you will find Scorpion.  Approach him, and you
    will engage in kombat with Scorpion who says he has a vendetta
    against you.  This match is two out of three rounds, but when
    Scorpion strikes you, he does double damage.  The key to winning is
    to block a lot.  Once you defeat him, you will earn 350 Ruby koins.
         After defeating Smoke, go to location E-7 to find Kira
    wandering about.  Approach her for yet another battle.  You only
    need to win one round when you are bleeding (losing health).  Use
    the same strategy as always, Special Moves, and quick combos.  Kira
    doesn't block much, so this fight should be pretty easy.  One she is
    defeated, you will earn 300 Jade koins.
         At location C-5 (near a giant rock formation and some trees),
    you will find Hotaru wandering about.  Approach him for kombat.
    This is best two out of three, and you can only defeat Hotaru using
    throws.  Block or sidestep his combos, then walk up to throw him.
    About 7 or 8 throws should do the trick.  After he is defeated, you
    will earn 300 Jade koins.
         After Hotaru is defeated, travel to location D-7 where you will
    find Sub-Zero wandering about.  Approach him for even more kombat.
    This match is two out of three rounds, and has you doing only 25% of
    your normal damage.  This match can be pretty tough.  Just use your
    Axe the whole time, and do quick combos with it.  After Sub-Zero is
    defeated, you will earn 350 Jade koins.
         At location (C-4) you will find Blaze walking around.  Approach
    him for:
    
    -->Side Mission 2 (C-4): "Find a potion for Blaze's memory."
         If you speak with Blaze, he will tell you that he is on a
    quest, but he cannot remember what for.  He asks you to find a
    potion for him, as all he remembers is that he was supposed to guard
    a dragon egg which has since been reborn.
    
    > Solution: After returning to Outworld for the third time, you will
    end up in Li Mei's village.  Travel to location G-8 to find a woman
    standing in front of a house with her arms folded.  Speak with her
    to receive her last bottle of "Memory Potion."  Return to Blaze with
    the potion, and he will reward you with his "Fire Gems," which equal
    out to 500 Ruby koins.
    
         If you travel to area H-6, you will find Frost walking in front
    of a small hut next to a lake.  Speak with her to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 3 (H-6): "Find the fabled Outworld ice caves and
    tell Frost of their location."
         If you speak with Frost at H-6, she will tell you that she is
    in search of Outworld's ice caves.  If you find them, she asks that
    you report back with their whereabouts.  If you do this, she will
    reward you.
    
    > Solution: If you go travel to location A-3, you will find the ice
    caves.  Shujinko says he believes this is the ice caves Frost is
    searching for.  He then draws up "Ice Caves Map."  Return to Frost
    with this map and she will reward you with 400 Ruby koins.
    
         After completing Frost's quest, continue on down the path to
    area H-7.  Here you will find a cave with Smoke waiting inside to
    give you:
    
    -->Side Mission 4 (H-7): "Relay Smoke's message to Sub-Zero in
    Earthrealm."
         If you speak with Smoke in this cave, he claims that you are a
    member of the Lin Kuei and asks that you deliver a message to Sub-
    Zero in Earthrealm immediately.  You receive "Note to Sub-Zero."
    
    > Solution: Return to location  in Outworld.  Step inside the portal
    to the Nexus.  Enter the very first portal to Earthrealm.  Travel to
    location G-8 in Earthrealm and speak with Sub-Zero here.  It will
    ask you if you wish to repeat his training.  Say no, and he will say
    the note will serve him well.  He will reward you with 500 Onyx
    koins.
    
         If you travel to location B-6 (a small village located on a
    bridge) you will find Shao Kahn walking around.  Speak with him to
    receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 5 (B-6): "Find Reptile and inform him that the is to
    return with Shao Kahn's tribute."
         If you speak with Shao Kahn, he will ask you why you are
    talking to him and get angry.  Shujinko will be polite and tell Kahn
    he didn't mean anything  by it.  Kahn then asks Shujinko to find
    Reptile who has gone missing and tell him to return to Kahn for his
    tribute.
    
    > Solution: If you travel to location E-4 (the Living Forest) you
    will spot Reptile pacing back and forth.  Speak with him and he
    tells you that he lost Shao's tribute somewhere in this forest.  He
    then runs away saying that he must inform his master of his mistake.
    You receive no reward for completing this quest, however...if you
    return to Shao Kahn, he gives you:
    
    -->Side Mission 6 (B-6): "Find Reiko and tell him that he is not to
    enter Shao Kahn's chamber."
         If you return to Shao Kahn, he will tell you that your debt is
    only partially repaid, and that he has another mission for you.  He
    goes on to say that Reiko, one of his most trusted generals, goes
    into Kahn's chamber and wears his helmet without permission.  Kahn
    asks you to find Reiko and tell him never to enter his chambers
    again, or he will face death.
    
    > Solution: After returning to Outworld for the third time, you will
    find yourself in Li Mei's village.  If you travel to location F-8,
    you will find Reiko walking about on a small piece of land.  Speak
    with him and he will know right away that you were sent to tell him
    not to wear Kahn's helmet.  He says he will not wear it anymore, but
    also says that in due time, it will be his.  Return to Shao Kahn,
    and he will reward you with 500 Ruby koins.
    
         At location C-8, you will find Rain pacing back and forth.
    Speak with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 7 (C-8): "Locate and return the Shokan ceremonial
    dagger to Rain."
         If you speak with Rain at this location, he will tell you that
    he believes Goro left a Shokan ceremonial dagger behind.  He asks
    that if you find it to return it to him so he can buy it from you.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location E-1 (it is a little cave area next to
    a house).  At the end of this path, you will find Goro's Shokan
    dagger.  Retrieve it and return to C-8.  Speak with Rain and he will
    tell you that Goro will be pleased to have it back but he plans to
    keep it for himself.  He offers you 500 Ruby koins as a reward.
    
         After completing Konquest's main missions, travel to location
    A-7.  Here you will find Tanya pacing back and forth in front of a
    large mountain.  Speak with her to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 8 (A-7): "Locate a suitable cave in which Tanya can
    trap Liu Kang."
         If you speak with Tanya at A-7, she will tell you that her new
    lord Shinnok has instructed her to find a cave to trap the infidel
    Liu Kang.  She says that if you find one, she will reward you.
    
    > Solution: There are actually two methods in which to complete this
    quest.  The first method and the one that rewards you with the most
    koins, is to travel back to G-4/5 (the Tarkatan base).  In the back
    of the base at location H-5, is a cave.  Approach the entrance, and
    Liu Kang will make a mental note that this must be the cave with
    which to trap Liu Kang.  If you return to Tanya after find this
    cave, she will reward you with 600 Ruby koins.
         The second solution, and not as rewarding is to travel back to
    the town of Lei Chen at location G-1.  In the back of some houses,
    you will find Liu Kang walking back and forth.  Speak with him, and
    he will tell you that he has come to Outworld to free Earthrealm by
    defeating Shao Kahn.  He will then reward you with 500 Ruby koins.
    
         Speaking of Tanya, travel to location C-2.  Here you will find
    Tanya walking about (you may have to exit Outworld and reenter in
    order for her to appear).  Approach her and you will be challenged
    to kombat.  She will become invisible.  You have to guess where she
    is the whole time.  This fight depends primarily on which character
    you morph into at the beginning of the fight.  I recommend returning
    to the map and challenging Tanya until you land someone you are good
    with.  This fight is not too hard.  Use projectiles to gauge where
    she is onscreen, then unload on her with style-branching combos.  If
    she takes out her weapons, they will be visible to you, so use that
    to your advantage.  Once you have defeated her one round, you will
    receive 350 Jade koins, and the key to koffin "ML" which unlocks
    Tanya's Alt. Costume.
    
         After completing the Tanya quest, travel to location B-6 and
    speak with a man walking around with a small sword in his hand to
    receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 9 (B-6): "Find Braan and tell him that Gohsk wants
    to fight him."
         If you speak with the man with the sword, he will tell you that
    Gohsk has offended him for the last time, and that he wishes to kill
    him.  He wants you to tell Braan that Gohsk wants to fight him.
    
    > Solution: Gohsk can be found at location E-8.  He is the man
    walking around with the Raiden hat on and the fish impaled on the
    end of a stick.  Speak with him and he is surprised that Gohsk is
    angry because it was only a prank.  He then gives you 500 Ruby koins
    and says "You never saw me."
    
         After you inform Braan of Gohsk's intentions, return to B-6 and
    find a man walking around with a long robe on.  Speak with him to
    receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 10 (B-6): "Return with a vampire's location."
         If you speak with the robed man, he asks you to inform him if
    you see or find a vampire.
    
    > Solution: You must have already returned to Outworld for the
    second time in the main storyline to have opened up the Tarkatan
    base.  Return to the base, and head toward the back end of it.  Here
    you will find a cave (H-5).  At the end of the cave is Nitara.
    Speak with her and she will tell you that she is indeed a vampire.
    Return to the robed man at A-6/B-6 and speak with him.  He will
    reward you with 600 Ruby koins.
    
         After entering Li Mei's village of Sun Do, (only accessible
    after traveling to Outworld for the third time) travel to location
    H-8 where you will find Johnny Cage walking around.  Speak with him
    and you will have to spar with him.  You have to perform a 12-hit
    combo on him.  I have yet to complete this mission, so if anyone
    has, do not hesitate to drop me a line, and tell me who you did it
    with and with what combo.  I will surely credit you with this
    information.
    
         After all of these battles and sidequests, I believe it is time
    to travel to the green aura (F-1).  Here you will find Mileena
    bathed in the green aura.  Approach her and she will say she will
    sink her teeth into Shujinko.  She then says that she will sharpen
    her teeth with your bones. It is now time for some more training...
    
    -->   Mileena: "Now, human, we will see how you fare against my Ying
    Yeung high attacks."
    
    > Snake Fang: Tap - 1
    > Elbow: Tap - 2

    > Tiger Tail Kick: Tap - Down+3

    > Sharp Nails: Tap - 1, 1
    > Fingers To The Eyes: Tap - 1, 1, 1
    
    -->   Mileena: "I did not think you could endure my last assault!  I
    doubt you will survive my Ying Yueng advanced combos!"
    
    > Serpent Takes Prey: Tap - 1, 1, 2
    > Heaven And Hell: Tap - 1, 1, 3
    > Bam: Tap - 1, 1, 4

    high attacks!"
    
    > Palm Strike: Tap - 1
    > Cotton Punch: Tap - 2
    > Spinning Sidekick: Tap - 3
    > Rising Axe Kick: Tap - 4
    
    -->   Mileena: "I do not understand how you could have survived!
    But you will not stand a chance against these Mian Chuan low
    attacks!"
    
    > Crouching Snake Fang: Tap - Down+1
    > Low Kick: Tap - Down+3
    > Spinning Sidewinder: Tap - Down+4
    > Spinning Low Sweep: Tap - Back+3

    attacks!"
    
    > Phoenix Palm: Tap - Toward+1
    > Crushing Knee: Tap - Up+1
    > Cold Fist: Tap - Up+2
    > Quick Palm: Tap - Back+2
    > Rising Uppercut: Tap - Down+2

    > Cold Fists: Tap - 2, 2
    > Cotton Rush: Tap - Back+2, 2
    > Cotton Rage: Tap - Back+2, 2, 2

    > Cold Fist Gets Icy: Tap - 2, 2, Up+1
    > Krazy Legs: Tap - 4, 3
    > Keeping Kontrol: Tap - 4, 1

    > Sai Hilt: Tap - 1
    > Gut Stab: Tap - 2
    > Foot Spike: Tap - 3

    > Knee Poke: Tap - Down+3
    > Sweeping Sai: Tap - 4
    > Hooking Stab: Tap - Down+4
    
    -->   Mileena: "You think you have survived!  You have not

    > Overhead Smash: Tap - Back+1
    > Rising Sai: Tap - Up+2
    > Twin Fangs: Tap - Toward+2
    > Shin Stab: Tap - Down+2
    > Throat Poke: Tap - Back+2
    
    -->   Mileena: "Feel the wrath of my Sai combos!"
    
    > Quickness: Tap - 1, 1
    > Lightning Stabs: Tap - 1, 1, 1
    > Sabertooth: Tap - 2, Toward+2
    
    -->   Mileena: "Dodge my Sai advanced combos...if you can!"
    
    > Anarchy: Tap - 1, 1, Back+1
    > Rising Dragon: Tap - 1, 1, Up+2
    > Whirling Demon: Tap - 1, 1, 2
    
    -->   Mileena: "Now you will experience the fury of my branching
    combos!"
    
    > Kahn's Commander: Tap - 1, 1, 3, CS
    
    -->   Mileena: "I am not finished with you yet!"
    
    > Outworld Wonder: Tap - 4, 3, CS
    
    -->   Mileena: "These special moves will tear you apart!"
    
    > Rolling Thunder: Tap - Down, Back+4
    > Rolling Thunder: Tap - Down, Back+4
    
    -->   Mileena: "Had enough?  You have not seen anything yet!"
    
    > Soaring Sai: Tap - Down, Toward+2
    > Soaring Sai: Tap - Down, Toward+2
    
    -->   Mileena: "Have I broken your fragile body?  Now I will crush
    it!"
    
    > Kick From Above: Tap - Toward, Toward+4
    > Kick From Above: Tap - Toward, Toward+4
    
    -->   Mileena: "I have given you a taste of my special attacks, but
    how will you defend against them all?"
    
    > Rolling Thunder, Kick From Above, Soaring Sai, Rolling Thunder,
    Kick From Above, Soaring Sai.
    
    -->   Mileena: "I have restrained myself by attacking you one move
    at a time.  Now I will not hold back!"
    
    > Mileena is pretty quick, and her Sais can do massive amounts of
    damage in short amounts of time.  Dodge her combos, and follow up
    with your own.  Her Special Moves work great here too.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         After completing your training with Mileena, she says she is
    impressed that he has survived.  She offers to have him assist in
    their cause.  They are to bring the head of a rebel to Shao Kahn
    because he is resisting their cause.  If Shujinko does not do this,
    the Tarkatan forces will slay everyone in the village.
         After receiving this information, head past Mileena into the
    small village (F-2).  Straight ahead of you at G-1 is the man you
    are supposed to kill.  Approach him and he will tell you he is the
    ruler of this city.  Shujinko tells him that the Tarkatan forces are
    growing in number outside his city walls, and that Shao Kahn wants
    his head in order to grant his people amnesty.  The man refuses, but
    offers another solution.  Since his military is no match for the
    Tarkata, he says that the city of Seidan, in the realm of Order,
    would be willing to help him.  The only problem is that he doesn't
    have anything of value to offer them.  He then remembers a priceless
    artifact in the Living Forest.  He asks Shujinko to find this
    artifact and offer it to the people of Seidan to help out his city.
    Shujinko says he will do just that.
         After speaking with the city ruler head back to the Living
    Forest (E-4).  The green aura will be shining down upon Jade who is
    walking back and forth in the Living Forest.  Approach her and
    Shujinko says he is looking for a valuable item in the Living
    Forest.  Jade says it is too late as she already has taken it and
    challenges you to a battle.  She is pretty easy, as she doesn't use
    many combos, and is kind of slow.  After she is defeated, you will
    earn 400 Ruby koins, and she drops a piece of the Kamidogu as well.
         Damashi then appears saying Shujinko has found the piece very
    fast.  Shujinko then tells Damashi that he told the city ruler he
    would give it to the Seidan for their help.  Damashi tells Shujinko
    that it belongs to the Elder Gods, and that he needs to place it on
    the altar in the Nexus.  He then goes on to say that you cannot even
    enter the Orderrealm without first placing the Kamidogu there
    anyway.  He also says that the Seidan are not interested in
    defending a city in which they do not occupy.  Damashi tells
    Shujinko to go to Seidan, and tell them what is going on.  They will
    hopefully help anyway; Shujinko agrees.
         After this conversation return to the portal leading to the
    Nexus (B-2).  Place the Kamidogu piece on the altar to open the
    portal to the Orderrealm.  Step inside... *NOTE* There are still some
    sidequests and various other things to complete in Outworld.  We
    cannot, unfortunately, complete these until late. *NOTE*
    
    ====================================================================
    
    +~-~-~-~-~~+
    |Orderrealm|
    +~-~-~-~-~-+
    
         After being transported to the Orderrealm, you will materialize
    in front a sphere.  Travel out through any of the four openings and
    Damashi will immediately initiate a cut-scene.  He will say you are
    now in the realm of Seido, the Orderrealm.  Shujinko does not know
    their laws, and Damashi says you must avoid any entanglements in
    their legal system.  Shujinko says he will heed his warning.
         There are many random koins lying about as well as chests.  Our
    first order of business is to complete some battles and sidequests.
    So head to location, (a Guardsman and crazy man stand nearby) to
    receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 1 (D-5): "Find an evidence item and return it to the
    guard to help solve the murder case."
         If you speak with the guardsman at D-5 , you will learn that he
    has arrested the man standing next to someone for killing someone
    with a knife.  The guard asks that if you find an item proving his
    innocence, to return it to him.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location E-6.  There you will find a bloody
    knife.  Also, if you travel to location B-3, you will find a journal
    in one of the huts.  It doesn't matter if you have one or both of
    the items when you talk to the Guard.  Only one will count and
    disappear from your inventory.  Bring it back to D-5, and the Guard
    will tell you that the knife has the blood of the victim on it, as
    well as the fingerprints of the man he arrested.  He thanks you for
    your efforts, and rewards you with 600 Ruby koins.
    
         At locations A-4 or A-5, you will spot Li Mei walking around.
    Approach her for Mortal Kombat!  This match asks you to defeat her
    in 30 seconds or less. She is pretty tame in this bout, and Throws
    are always your friend.  Once Li Mei is defeated, you will earn 300
    Platinum koins.
         Speaking of Li Mei, return to her once you have defeated her
    and train again.  Once you beat her the second time, you will
    receive the key to koffin "TE" which unlocks her Alt. Costume.
         After defeating Li Mei, travel to location C-2.  Here you will
    find Bo'Rai Cho staggering around drunkenly.  Approach him to engage
    in Mortal Kombat.  You have to perform a 35% hit combo on him in
    order to pass. I have not been able to complete this task as it is
    VERY hard.  If anyone has, and will be kind enough to drop me a line
    and tell me which character and what combo they used, I will be
    eternally grateful.
         If you travel to location D-6, you will find a bald man and two
    guardsmen standing outside of a temple. Speak with the bald man for:
    
    -->Side Mission 2 (D-6): "Find a citizen that has information about
    the missing emissary."
         If you speak with the bald man at this location, you will learn
    that an emissary (Parlos Cassina, "Carlos Pesina," with transposed
    letters) was ordered for.  He has not been seen in a long while, and
    the man asks you to find information about that.  He also says he
    will pay you for your help.
    
    > Solution: If you travel to location F-5 (a little park with
    benches), you will find a man walking around looking every which
    way.  He says that he thinks Parlos Cassina has joined the
    Resistance.  With that information, return to D-6 and speak with the
    man who will reward you with 500 Ruby koins.
    
         If you travel along the path of C-6 and D-5, you are most
    likely to run into Mavado from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.
    Speak with him for:
    
    -->Side Mission 3 (C-6 or D-5): Acquire 1000 red koins to trade with
    Mavado."
         If you speak with Mavado he will say that his clan (the Red
    Dragon) are stockpiling red koins for...covert operations.  He offers
    to trade you 500 koins for 1000 red koins.
    
    > Solution: You should already have well over 1000 Ruby koins at
    this time (if you haven't been spending them).  So, talk to Mavado
    again, and you will trade him 1000 Ruby koins for 500 Sapphire
    koins.
    
         If you travel to location E-3 (anytime from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00
    p.m.), you will find an area patrolled by a lot of guards.  Raiden
    is standing among them.  Speak to him to engage in kombat!  He will
    do double damage to you and you have to win two out of three rounds.
    You will play as Mileena, so use your Sais a lot as well as quick
    combos with them.  Throws work well too.  Stay away from her Special
    Moves, as if they are blocked, will leave you wide open for follow-
    up attacks.  Once Raiden is defeated you will earn 350 Platinum
    koins.
         If you travel to location G-6, you will find Kenshi walking
    about.  Approach him for more Mortal Kombat.  You will need to
    defeat him 3 times.  Use quick combos and most definitely throws,
    and watch out for Kenshi's Katana as it is fast and does a lot of
    damage.  Once he is defeated, you will earn 300 Sapphire koins.
         If/when you travel to D-6, you will find Sindel walking around
    (she only appears during the wee hours of the morning).  Approach
    her for yet another battle.  You have to win one round while
    bleeding to death (gradually losing health).  She can be pretty
    tough as her moves are hard to gauge, and blocking takes extra time
    that is needed for the offensive.  Use Mileena's Special Moves to
    keep Sindel reeling, then follow up with quick Sai combos until she
    is defeated.  Once she is dead, you will receive 400 Gold koins
    after this very tough battle.
         At location B-6 or C-6, you will see MoKap prancing around.
    Speak with him for the video camera icon which contains the key to
    koffin "AF" which unlocks the Chou Jaio Video.  If you travel to
    location B-5 you will see a man standing in front of a strange
    structure holding his back.  Speak to him for:
    
    -->Side Mission 4 (B-5): "Help pick up all the boxes."
         If you speak with this ailing old man, he will ask you to help
    with the boxes he has to move.
    
    > Solution: After you speak with him, 6 boxes will appear right
    around that area.  Pick up the six boxes and return to the man.  He
    will offer you 400 Jade koins.
    
         If you are traveling through the B-4 area, you will see Stryker
    walking around.  Approach him for:
    
    -->Side Mission 5: (B-3 or B-4): "Find a citizen that knows the
    location of the Seidan Guard Academy."
         If you speak with Stryker, he will tell you that he is there to
    train to become a Seidan Guard.  He doesn't know where the academy
    is though.  He asks that if you find it, to report back to him for a
    few "bucks" (400 Ruby koins).
    
    > Solution: After receiving this quest from Stryker, head to
    location C-6 or D-6.  Here you will find a man walking the path in a
    robe.  Speak with him to learn the academy is to the north.  Return
    to Stryker with this news.  He will offer you 400 Ruby koins.
    
         At locations F-6 and F-7, you will see Jade walking around (she
    will only appear at night).  Approach her for more kombat.  In this
    match you cannot block.  I would sidestep her every attack and
    follow up with quick combos, as well as throws.  She can be pretty
    aggressive at times, and her Bo Jutsu has looooong reach, so stay
    out of the way.  Once you have defeated Jade two out of three times,
    you will earn 300 Jade koins.
         In yet another encounter with a Mortal Kombat character, travel
    to E-5 to see Jax walking around.  Approach him for even more
    kombat.  In this match, you cannot block, and can only damage Jax by
    Throwing him; you can still use your Combo Breakers however.  All I
    can say is dodge, dodge, and dodge!  You need to beat him two out of
    three times.  Once he is defeated you will earn 350 Ruby koins.
         For even more kombat, travel down area F-5 to spot Kabal
    walking about.  Speak with him to do battle.  This match has you
    trying to defeat Kabal 3 times without being able to block.  It
    sounds hard, but it isn't too.  You can still use your Combo
    Breakers, as well as everything else, including Throws, and Special
    Moves. Once Kabal is defeated, you will earn 300 Sapphire koins.
         At location G-6 is a man walking back and forth with a blue
    robe on.  Speak with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 6 (G-5/6): "Find three citizens that tell you their
    age and return to the census taker."
         If you speak with the blue robed man, you will learn that he
    needs three more people's ages in order to complete his census.
    
    > Solution: There are only three people in the entire Orderrealm who
    will tell you their age.  We can start out at location H-5.  An old
    woman is standing outside a hut here.  She reveals she is 254 years
    old.  The next willing citizen is found at G-3.  He is standing
    outside a house next to a tree.  Speak to him to learn that he is 25
    years old.  The last person is location G-4 (near Hotaru and his
    henchmen).  Speak with this person and you will learn he is 132
    years old.  Return to G-5/6, and the man will reward you with 500
    Jade koins.
    
         At location E-4, you will spot 2 guards and Fujin standing at
    the entrance to one of the temples.  Approach Fujin for:
    
    -->Side Mission 7 (E-4 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. are the only times he
    will appear there): "Search the realm of Order to find Fujin's
    book."
         If you speak with Fujin he tells you that he is looking for a
    book about nature.  He then tells Shujinko that he may be able to
    leave the Orderrealm sooner, if he can find the book.
    
    > Solution: If you travel back to location G-3, you will find two
    huts.  Enter the one closest to Hotaru, and you will find the
    "Nature Book."  Return this book to Fujin, and he will reward you
    with 400 Jade koins.
    
         If you are at locations E-1 or E-2 early in the morning (2:00
    a.m. and later) you will see Ermac slinking about in the darkness.
    Approach him to engage in Mortal Kombat.  You will be asked to
    defeat Ermac in 15 seconds.  This isn't too hard, as long as you
    don't get hit, because it wastes precious seconds off the clock.
    Quick combos, and Special Moves work.  Throws take too long to do.
    After Ermac is defeated, you will earn 350 Sapphire koins.
         If you travel to location D-7, you will see a woman.  Approach
    her to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 8 (D-7): "Find a citizen who has the Greentown gem."
         If you speak with the woman in a robe walking around outside a
    house, you will learn that she is making jewelry for her children.
    She does not have time to find all of the jewels however, and asks
    that you assist her in this task.
    
    > Solution: Travel to Greentown (straight across from the woman's
    house at E-7).  Speak with the man walking around here.  He will
    tell you that he has a green gem and that it is worthless.  Return
    this gem to the woman for:
    
    -->Side Mission 9 (D-7): "Find a citizen who has the Gold Nugget."
         If you speak with this woman upon receiving the Green Gem, she
    will tell you that her son will love the ring she is going to make
    out of it.  She then asks you to find the Golden Nugget.
    
    > Solution: Travel to Goldtown (G-6).  There will be a man walking
    around here.  Speak with him to find out that gold nuggets are quite
    common in this part of town.  Return to the woman (D-7) with the
    nugget to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 10 (D-7): "Find a citizen who has the Fire Opal."
         If you speak with this woman upon receiving the Gold Nugget,
    you will learn that her daughter loves jewelry made out of gold.
    She then asks you to find the Fire Opal in Redtown.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location B-2 and speak with the man here to
    receive the Fire Opal.  You will learn that it is the most common
    gemstone in Seido.  Return to the woman and she will tell you her
    youngest son will wear it proudly.  She then gives you:
    
    -->Side Mission 11 (D-7): "Find a citizen who has the Winter Stone."
         If you speak with her again, she will ask you to find one more
    item, the Winter Stone in Bluetown.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location B-3, and find a man wearing a blue
    robe.  Speak with him to receive the Winter Stone.  Return this to
    the woman and she will tell you that she will not be making any
    jewelry for her youngest daughter because she has joined the
    Resistance and that woman has disowned her.  She then offers for you
    to keep the Winter Stone, which in turn, come out as 600 Sapphire
    koins.
    
         If you travel to location D-1, you will find Havik standing
    there with his arms crossed.  Approach him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 12 (D-1): "Find five citizens in Red Town and talk
    them into rioting."
         If you speak with Havik, he wants you to create a riot using
    the Seidan Guardsmen.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location F-1/2, and you will find plenty of
    people to talk into rioting (they will be running wildly, or limping
    around).  Just approach them and they will all say different things;
    they will all end by screaming AAAAHHH!!!! however.  Once you have
    spoken to all five of them, return to Havik and he will reward you
    with 600 Sapphire koins.
    
         After completing all of those sidequests and battling all of
    those kombatants, we should head on over to the green aura now (G-
    4).  Here you will find Hotaru and many guards walking around him.
    Approach him and Shujinko will tell him that he needs his help to
    defend the small city in Outworld from Shao Kahn's invading forces;
    he also says that the Seidan Guard will be given full control of the
    city.  Hotaru responds by saying that is very busy here with all the
    riots going on.  He then asks Shujinko to help them suppress these
    people from rioting, and if Shujinko does that, the Guard will
    defend this city from Shao Kahn.  Hotaru needs to train Shujinko
    first, so...
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Your Guardsman training will begin with Ba Shan Fan
    basic high attacks."
    
    > Backfist: Tap - 1
    > Chest Backfist: Tap - 2
    > Stomach Kick: Tap - 3
    > Front Kick: Tap -4
    
    -->   Hotaru: "You have graduated to low attacks.  Begin with these

    > Low Punch: Down+1
    > Twisting Low Kick: Tap - Down+3
    > Creeping Kick: Down+4
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Seidan Guardsmen are renowned for their dedication
    and discipline.  Learn these Seidan power and pop-up attacks until
    you have mastered them."
    
    > Power Punch: Toward+2
    > Smashing Fist: Tap - Back+1
    
    -->   Hotaru: "You have learned much.  But you are only halfway
    through your training.  You will now learn Ba Shan Fan basic
    combos."
    
    > Double Backfist: Tap - 2, 1
    > Leg Bash: Tap - 1, Back+3
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Excellent!  You have mastered the Seidan Guard basic
    combos.  Let us see how you fare with more advanced Ba Shan Fan
    combos."
    
    > Bashing Skulls: Tap - 2, Back+1
    > Tap - 2, Back+1, 2, Back+1

    > Spear Hand Strike: Tap - 2
    > Stepping Heel Kick: Tap - 3

    > Wing Chop: Tap - Toward+2
    > Stepping Heel Kick: Tap - 3
    > Power Heel Kick: Tap - 4
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Well done.  Now for Pi Gua basic combos."
    
    > Rushing Ridgehand: Tap - 2, 2, 1
    > Rain From Above: Tap - 2, 2, Up+1
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Not bad, recruit.  Now try Pi Gua advanced combos."
    
    > Tap - Back+1, Back+1, Back+1
    > Tap - Back+1, Back+1, 2, 2, 1
    
    -->   Hotaru: "The Naginata high attacks are difficult, but you must
    learn them to further your training."
    
    > Face Cutter: Tap - 1
    > Stomach Slash: Tap - 2
    > Face Poker: Tap - 3
    > Power Kick: Tap - 4
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Excellent!  Finally, you will perfect the Naginata

    > Blunt End: Tap - Down+1
    > Shin Splitter: Tap - Down+3
    > Sharp End: Tap - Down+4
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Finally, you will learn Naginata power and pop-up
    attacks."
    
    > Raging Uproar: Tap - Back+1
    > Razor Spin: Tap - Up+2
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Finally, show me you can handle Naginata basic
    combos."
    
    > Royal Guard: Tap - 1, Back+1
    > 7th Death Dealer: Tap - 1, 1, 4
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Next you will master Naginata advanced combos."
    
    > Tap - Back+1, 1, Back+1
    > Tap - Back+1, Back+1, Down+2
    
    -->   Hotaru: "You have shown that you are indeed a formidable
    warrior!  Show me that you can handle style-branching combos."
    
    > Launching Bash: Tap - 2, 1, CS
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Now for a different style-branching combo."
    
    > Spinning Out Of Kontrol: Tap - 2, 2, CS
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Now you will learn secret Seidan fighting moves.  I
    will teach you our special attacks."
    
    > Grasshopper: Tap - Toward, Toward+4
    > Grasshopper: Tap - Toward, Toward+4
    
    -->   Hotaru: "Well done.  Now try this one..."
    
    > Lava Burst: Tap - Down, Back+1
    > Lava Burst: Tap - Down, Back+1
    
    -->   Hotaru: "A Seidan Guardsman can perform any of the previous
    special attacks on command.  Attack me with all of them.  I will not
    make it easy for you."
    
    > Lava Burst, Grasshopper, Lava Burst, Grasshopper.
    
    -->   Hotaru: "For you final test, you must defeat me in
    battle...FIGHT!"
    
    > Hotaru is pretty easy to fight, as he has no real big damaging
    combos.  His Naginata has extreme reach, so using that may be wise.
    Also, his Throw is pretty good.  Just sidestep his attacks and
    counter with his small Pi Gua combos, or use his Naginata for its
    reach.  His Special Move, Lava Burst, is also pretty helpful in
    setting him up for a mid-air juggle(s).
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         After training with Hotaru he will tell you that you are now an
    honorary member of the Seidan Guardsmen.  He then tells you to go
    and defeat the leader of the Resistance, Darrius.  Shujinko complies
    and off we go to another green aura (F-2).
         After reaching F-2, approach Darrius and Shujinko will ask him
    if he is the man behind the rioting.  Darrius says that is him, and
    that he "looks forward to being under arrest."
         This fight is pretty easy as you are Hotaru, and you just
    trained with him.  His Lava Burst Special Move is good to start
    juggles with, and his Grasshopper is good to catch him off guard.
    His small Pi Gua combos can be effective in their own right as well.
    Once you have defeated Darrius two out of three times, you will earn
    450 Jade koins; travel back to location G-4, and speak with Hotaru
    again.
         Hotaru will congratulate you on your victory over Darrius.  He
    then says that your services are no longer needed because the
    rioters have been suppressed.  He then says he will honor his word
    and leave to defend the city of Lei Chen in Outworld.  We need to
    visit location E-4 again (the portal out of Orderrealm).  Step into
    the portal to be transported to the Nexus.  Once hear, enter the
    portal leading to Outworld.
    
    ====================================================================
    
    
    +~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~+
    |Outworld Part Two|
    +~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~+
    
         After exiting the portal from the Nexus, we will be back in
    Outworld.  Follow the green aura to location G-1/2 where you will
    see Hotaru pacing back and forth in the city of Lei Chen.  Hotaru
    will say that he has driven off the Tarkatan horde and is now taking
    control of this city as his own.  He then says that Zeffeero, the
    previous governor, has forgotten their deal.  Hotaru says that as a
    result of his forgetfulness, he has now taken the city under his
    total control.  He then leaves as he fears that the horde may be
    regrouping for another assault.
         After speaking with Hotaru, exit the town of Lei Chen.  Upon
    your exit, you will be interrupted by a Tarkatan warrior who says
    for Shujinko to come with him.  We are then seen inside the
    Tarkata's campsite.  Baraka says that he told Shujinko to convince
    the governor to surrender not to bring reinforcements.  Shujinko
    says that he would not surrender, and that he would rather not see
    an entire town slaughtered.  Baraka then says that he should let his
    army rip him to pieces to which Shujinko asks if Baraka is too
    afraid to do it himself.  Shujinko then challenges his to a battle...
         Baraka can be a little tough as he is very aggressive and his
    Blades to loads of damage.  Stick with your small Pi Gua combos, and
    follow up with Naginata and Special Moves.  Once Baraka is defeated,
    you will earn 500 Sapphire koins.  Shujinko then asks Baraka to
    teach him his fighting techniques as "payment" for defeating him in
    kombat.  Off we go to Baraka training...
    
    -->   Baraka: "The fighting styles I will show you are but a taste
    of Tarkatan might.  I will begin with Silat basic high attacks."
    
    > Quick Punch: Tap - 1
    > Vertical Elbow: Tap - 2

    > Frontwards Elbow: Tap - Toward+2

    > Steel Punches: Tap - 1, 1
    > Head Spinner: Tap - Back+1, 2
    > Elbow Knee: Tap - Back+1, 3

    > Tap - 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 3, CS

    Flying Shard, Chop Chop Blades.
    
    -->   Baraka: "For your final test, you must defeat me in
    battle...FIGHT!"
    
    > Baraka is pretty quick and uses his Blades a lot.  They are fast
    and have long reach; they also do a hefty amount of damage.  Stick
    with the long style-branching combos to inflict massive damage on
    him.  When he is reeling use your Throw to create some distance.
    Once he is defeated you will earn 200 Jade koins.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         After defeating and training with Baraka, he will say that this
    is enough, and that he must keep some techniques to himself.  He
    then says he will allow you say passage out of the encampment back
    to the portal.  He then says he never wants to see you in this realm
    again.
         We should do what he says and travel to location B-2 to reach
    the green aura and transport back to the Nexus.  Once in the Nexus,
    Damashi will appear and tell you that he has good tidings.  Shujinko
    questions that and learns that the Elder Gods are pleased with your
    actions thus far and are allowing you to compete in the Mortal
    Kombat tournament in Earthrealm.  Damashi says that this has been
    Shujinko's dream and that he will finally be able to stand up to
    Shang Tsung and win!
         After this cutscene, enter the portal leading to Earthrealm.

    |Earthrealm Part Two|
    +~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~+
    
         Once in Earthrealm, you will see the green aura in the
    distance.  Follow it to location F-4, and you will see Kenshi
    standing under a gazebo practicing his kombat arts.  Approach him
    and Shujinko will ask Kenshi if he is blind.  Kenshi responds by
    saying that he is and it is because of Shang Tsung.  He goes on to
    say that Shang Tsung promised to show Kenshi the location of a very
    powerful sword that would compliment his skills.  Shang Tsung,
    however, just consumed the souls of Kenshi's fallen ancestors,
    leaving Kenshi blind in the process.  Kenshi eventually found the
    sword which helps to guide him in battle; it also helps compliment
    his senses as he cannot see.  He wishes to avenge the deaths of his
    ancestors by killing Tsung.  He asks that you report back to him if
    you find the location of the evil sorcerer, Shujinko obliges.
         After speaking with Kenshi, follow the aura to location D-5
    where you will find Nightwolf standing in the middle of a bunch of
    trees.  Speak with him and he will tell you to leave at once because
    you are defiling sacred ground.  He says that he senses evil within
    you to which Shujinko responds that he does not feel any evil
    within.  Nightwolf then says that he can purge this contagion from
    Shujinko's body, but it will take many years.  Shujinko ponders the
    idea and eventually decides that it would be best for him in the
    long run.  Thus begins Nightwolf's training...
    
    -->   Nightwolf: "Now, Shujinko, you will begin your spiritual
    cleansing with Val Tudo high attacks."

    > Overhead Smash: Tap - Back+1
    > Rising Sun: Tap - Up+2
    > Hammerfist Uppercut: Tap - Down+2

    to execute one attack after another until you reach victory."

    > Spirit Arrow, Rhino Charge, Lightning From Above, Spirit Arrow,
    Rhino Charge, Lightning From Above.
    
    -->   Nightwolf: "I have taught you much, Shujinko, but for your
    final test, you must fight me!"
    
    > Nightwolf is very aggressive and uses the Rhino Charge move a lot.
    Sidestep it, and follow up with some Tomahawk combos as those are
    fast and deadly.  The Rhino Charge move is good to use against him
    as well.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         After your training with Nightwolf is complete, Shujinko will
    have aged.  Shujinko expanded his consciousness and heightened his
    awareness.  Nightwolf then tells Shujinko what a great job he has
    done, and how he is always welcome in the land of his forefathers.
    For now though, head over to the green aura at location B-4.  You
    will see Shang Tsung standing here bathed in the aura in the middle
    of a small village.  Speak with him and you will learn that that is
    indeed Shang Tsung.  Shujinko tells him that he has always dreamed
    of competing in the Mortal Kombat tournament.  Tsung says that is
    all fine and dandy, except that he must prove himself right here,
    right now in order to qualify, FIGHT!
    
    > Shang Tsung is not too tough as he has some small combos.  His
    Short Sword is deadly fast, and has pretty good range.  His two
    fighting styles are pretty good, but his weakness is his speed.  Use
    your quick Tomahawk combos to inflict damage, and then follow up
    with Special Moves.  Once you have defeated Shang Tsung two out of
    three rounds, you will earn 400 Jade koins.
    
         After the battle, Shang Tsung will allow you to compete in the
    Mortal Kombat tournament.  Shujinko then tells Tsung that an
    acquaintance of his also wishes to compete.  Shang Tsung then asks
    if it is the blind swordsman, Kenshi.  Shujinko says yes, and tells
    Shujinko to tell Kenshi that he is welcome to compete on his island
    fortress in the Lost Sea.  He leaves after saying the tournament is
    fast approaching.
         After the cutscene with Shang Tsung, travel to location C-3
    where you will see Kenshi bathed in the aura.  Approach him and he
    will tell you that he has sensed Tsung on many occasions but has not
    come up with any success.  Shujinko then tells Kenshi that Tsung
    knew of his plan to find and defeat him.  Kenshi says he figured as
    much and promises to train you for your efforts.
    
    -->   Kenshi: "This first fighting style, Tai Chi, was taught to me
    when I was young.  We will begin with Tai Chi basic high attacks."

    battle...FIGHT!"
    
    > Kenshi can be pretty aggressive in this fight as well.  Use his
    Special Moves as he has many and they are pretty good at any range.
    Tai Chi, and his Katana stances are the only useful ones.  Katana
    has some pretty nasty combos so make use of those.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         After training with Kenshi, he will tell you that he has to
    find Shang Tsung to fulfill his vendetta against him; he says he
    hopes he is still alive when he gets to him.  Shujinko then tells
    him that he has been waiting to find and defeat Tsung himself.
    Kenshi then runs off in search of Shang Tsung and his island in the
    Lost Sea.
         After this cutscene travel to location B-4 where you will meet
    Damashi.  He senses that some change has taken place.  Shujinko says
    that he has undergone a spiritual cleansing to release some of the
    evil inside him.  Damashi says it is unfortunate because the evil
    taint allows you to enter realms inaccessible regularly.  He
    recommends to travel back to the Netherrealm to instill evil into
    you once again.  Damashi says you may then cleanse your soul after
    instilling this evil.  Shujinko protests this, and eventually gives
    in as he ponders about Shang Tsung.
         Travel back to location G-3 to meet with Raiden.  He says this
    portal is not to be used by mortals.  He must secure it so other
    members of foreign realms do not enter Earthrealm.  Shujinko
    introduces himself, to which Raiden says the champion of the Elder
    Gods would fights with the might of 10 warriors, and he doubts that
    you would possess such abilities...FIGHT!
    
    > Raiden is pretty tough, as he is fast and has the Staff which has
    the longest reach in the game.  His Special Move are also very good.
    Use Kenshi's Katana and long style-branching combos in Tai Chi to
    make short work of Raiden.  After you defeat him, you will earn 400
    Ruby koins.
    
         Raiden then apologizes for doubting your abilities and allows
    you access to the portal.  He also says that he will keep a close
    eye on the tournament's proceedings while you are gone, and also
    says that the Elder Gods have their reasons for why Shujinko was/is
    ordered back to the Netherrealm.  After the cutscene, step into the
    portal to be transported back to the Nexus.  Once there, step up to
    the portal leading to the Netherrealm.

         After arriving in the Netherrealm for the second time, you
    should immediately follow the green aura to location F-3 where you
    will find Scorpion.  Approach him and he will tell you that he is
    trying to find Quan Chi.  Shujinko tells him that he has never heard
    of this Quan Chi.  Scorpion then asks him to help him find Quan Chi.
    Shujinko says he will, but for a price.  He needs to gain some
    impurities from the Netherrealm and what better way to gain them
    than to learn Scorpion's kombat skills.  Scorpion denies the offer
    at first saying it will only delay his search for Chi.  Shujinko
    then tells him that he will be gaining a valuable ally if he trains
    him.  Scorpion then accepts the offer and away we go to...
    
    -->   Scorpion: "The fighting styles I will teach you are but a
    taste of my kombat rage.  We will begin with Hapkido basic high

    Show me your RAGE!"
    
    > Scorpion likes to attack low, so be wary of that, and block low.
    After this block, show him up with some Hapkido basic combos.  His
    Mugai Ryu weapon also works extremely well as does his Special
    Moves.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         After you train with and defeat Scorpion, he will tell you that
    you are now filled with rage.  He then tells Shujinko that Quan Chi
    killed his family and clan and that he tricked Scorpion into
    thinking Sub-Zero was the murderer.  He then sends Shujinko on his
    way to find Chi.
         Head over to the green aura at location.  Quan Chi will ask who
    you are, and then Scorpion will appear behind Chi.  Quan is pretty
    surprised, and Scorpion tells him he will suffer for killing his
    family and clan.  The fight then begins.  Scorpion is a very good
    character, and the same strategy for defeating him in training
    should apply to Quan Chi as well.  His chain combos are terrific as
    are his Special Moves.  After Quan Chi is defeated you will receive
    500 Platinum koins.
         After the fight, Quan Chi will run away, and Scorpion will yell
    that there is nowhere to run and chase after him.  We then cut a
    scene with Moloch and Drahmin standing around.  All of a sudden they
    hear Quan Chi and Scorpion fighting nearby.  Moloch asks Drahmin if
    he heard that noise to which he says yes.  Drahmin then says that
    they should investigate and "feast upon the loser."
         After this cutscene, head over to the green aura.  Upon
    reaching the entrance to the village, Damashi will interrupt you and
    say that you have absorbed much rage.  He then says that you may
    leave the Netherrealm, to which Shujinko says he does not wish to
    remain a moment longer.  Following this conversation, head up to the
    green aura at location C-8, and step through to be transported to
    the Nexus.
        Upon entering the Nexus, Raiden will meet you here saying he
    needs your assistance.  Shujinko says that he will help.  Raiden
    tells Shujinko that Quan Chi and Shang Tsung have formed an
    alliance.  He says Quan Chi possess an amulet allowing him to travel
    the realms.  It is not a Kamidogu however.  Raiden is gathering the
    best warriors around to help attack Chi and Tsung in Outworld.
    Shujinko says that he will definitely help Raiden and the rest of
    the mortals; he also says that it will be nice to have a Champion of
    the Elder Gods on "our" side.  After this cutscene head into the
    portal that leads to Outworld.

         Upon entering Outworld for the second time, head over to
    location D-5, near the Living Forest.  Here, you will find Kano
    surrounded by many guards.  Approach him and he will tell you that
    Shang Tsung and Quan Chi have ordered all "denizens" of Outworld to
    begin work on constructing a palace.  Shujinko is then seen inside a
    small village where the palace is to be built.  Kano warns him not
    to try and escape, or he will have to kill you.
         After the chat with Kano, head over to the green aura at
    location   Inside the hut you are closest to (F-8) is Li Mei.
    Approach her, and she will throw up a smoke bomb, and you will have
    earned the key to koffin "PD" which unlocks her.  Upon exiting the
    house, head over to the green aura at location G-8 to find Li Mei.
         Approach her and she will tell you that her village was the
    first enslaved by the Deadly Alliance, and the only way to free it
    is to enter their tournament and win.  Shujinko tells her that he is
    worried for her going in alone, and offers to teach her some kombat
    skills he has picked up over the years.  She accepts, and off we go
    to Li Mei training...

    > Nova Blast: Tap - Down, Back+1

    > Flying Flurry: Tap - Toward, Toward+2
    
    -->   Shujinko: "You are learning quickly!  But you still have one
    left to master."
    
    > Flipping Heel Kick: Tap - Down, Back+4
    > Flipping Heel Kick: Tap - Down, Back+4
    
    -->   Shujinko: "You have learned many special attacks, but can you

    > Flipping Heel Kick, Flying Flurry, Carnival Spin, Nova Blast,
    Flipping Heel Kick, Flying Flurry, Carnival Spin, Nova Blast.
    
    -->   Shujinko: "I have taught you much, Li Mei, but I must test
    your abilities in kombat!"
    
    > Li Mei is a very fast character with quick Special Moves and
    combos.  Be on the look out for those, sidestep them, and follow up
    with combos of your own.  She has especially useful Special Moves,
    so try to incorporate those into your combos for extra damage.
    
    Mission Complete!
    
         Once you have trained Li Mei and defeated her, Shujinko will
    congratulate her on a job well done.  He then goes on to tell her
    that she may not have to battle the Deadly Alliance after all, as he
    knows someone who may help to save her village: Hotaru.  Li Mei
    accepts the offer if Shujinko believes that Hotaru can help Sun Do.
    Shujinko is then sent off to Lei Shen to ask Hotaru for his help.
         Travel once again to the next green aura.  Once there, approach
    Hotaru and he will be upset that you have violated the ordinance of
    remaining indoors when the toll sounded.  Shujinko says he had no
    idea about that ordinance, and Hotaru says there is no excuse for
    ignorance and imprisons you.
    
    ====================================================================

    |Orderrealm Part Two|
    +~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~+
    
         For an untold number years, Shujinko remained imprisoned.  He
    was finally brought to a holding cell as his day of trial had come.
    Once back in Orderrealm, and now an old man, approach the guards to
    the left of the exit to your holding cell.  Shujinko asks what he is
    doing there, to which the guard replies that you are being held
    there awaiting your court date in the Judicial Court of the Realm of
    Order.  Walk to the back of your cell, and a cutscene will play out
    showing Dairou snapping one guards neck, and punching the other in
    the face.  Shujinko is wondering what is going on to which Dairou
    replies that he was paid by Damashi to kill these guards and free
    Shujinko.  He then gives him the key to his cell he picked up off a
    guard.  Dairou says that if went to trial, he would have been
    imprisoned for many decades unjustly.
         After the cutscene, travel to the green aura at location E-6.
    You will find another holding cell with Hotaru standing inside.
    Open the doors and you will find out Hotaru is ashamed of you.  He
    says that he is ashamed because he used a known assassin to free him
    of his cell.  Hotaru even says that he came to the courtroom to
    testify in his defense.  After what has happened though, he has no
    choice but to sentence him to death.  Shujinko says that he has no
    choice but to resist arrest.
         You now have to battle Hotaru.  He is pretty easy, and not too
    aggressive.  He uses his Special Moves a lot and small combos.
    Stand back, use your own Special Moves, and small and large combos
    to beat him.  Once defeated, you will earn 500 Platinum koins.
         With Hotaru dead on the ground, approach the aura, and pick up
    the Orderrealm's Kamidogu piece.  Damashi will then appear.
    Shujinko asks him why he sent the assassin to help him out.  He then
    says that he feels disenchanted for what Damashi has done.  He asks
    if the Elder Gods would have objected to such action, with which
    Damashi says no.  He then asks Shujinko to bring the Kamidogu piece
    back to the Nexus, to open the portal to Edenia.
    
    ====================================================================
    
    +~-~-~-+
    |Edenia|
    +~-~-~-+
    
         Once in Edenia, Damashi will appear once again.  He says that
    the last piece of the Kamidogu will be found here in Edenia.  He
    then says that he has a bad feeling that someone else is here to
    retrieve this piece as well.  Shujinko then questions about the
    Kamidogu itself.  Damashi then explains that the Kamidogu make up
    reality.  A long time ago, he says, there were 6 Elder Gods, and the
    One Being.  The One Being fed off the Elder Gods; the Gods then
    forged the Kamidogu to break the One Being's spell from them.  The
    pieces of the Kamidogu then formed the six realms.  Damashi says
    that he must find the last piece before the evil person he senses
    does.
         As with every other realm we have visited, there are many
    random koins lying about.  Pick these up as you go along, and don't
    forget to be on the lookout for chests that appear.  Our first order
    of business is to complete some sidequests.  Head over to location
    G-3 and you will find a man walking near the edge of a cliff.  Speak
    with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 1 (G-3): "Deliver the message to the Edenian
    Resistance."
         If you speak with this man, you will learn that he is trying to
    gather up as many people as possible to ally against Shao Kahn.  He
    asks you to bring this message to the people on the other side of
    Edenia.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location
    
         At location G-2 (in a small forest) you will find Mileena
    walking about.  Approach her for some kombat.  You have to beat her
    while she does double damage, heals, and you cannot block.  This
    match is very tough, especially if you have to use Li Mei.  I would
    constantly abuse her Special Moves which Mileena seems to have a
    hard time blocking.  I BARELY beat her and received 400 Gold koins
    for doing so.  The only plus side to this ridiculous battle is that
    you only have to defeat her one time.
         If you travel to location, enter one of the houses there.
    Inside is a man who will give you:
    
    -->Side Mission 2 (E-8 inside a house): "Find the old man's missing
    son, or find his necklace."
         If you speak with the man inside the house here, he will tell
    you that he hasn't seen his son for a week.  He asks that if you see
    him to tell him to come home.  He also fears that he was slain by
    Shao Kahn's military and should you find him dead, bring the old man
    his son's necklace.
    
    > Solution: If you go to location G-1, you will see the body of a
    warrior lying near some trees.  Inspect it with the Action button,
    and you will receive the "Dead Man's Necklace."  Return to the house
    at E-8, and speak with the man.  He will reward you with 500
    Platinum koins for your kindness.
    
         At location G-3, in between a bunch of trees, you will find
    Sektor walking about.  Note that he will only appear at night.
    Speak with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 3 (G-3): "Go to Orderrealm and buy parts for
    Sektor."
         If you speak with Sektor at this location, he will tell you
    that he has been damaged badly after an altercation with Sub-Zero.
    He gives you koins to take to Orderrealm to buy the parts needed to
    fix him.  You receive the "Parts List."
    
    > Solution: Return to the portal of Edenia to be transported back to
    the Nexus.  Step into the fifth portal (Orderrealm) and travel to
    location E-5.  Here you should see a robe man walking around with a
    backwards baseball cap on.  Speak with him and he asks to see your
    list.  He then tells you that he has the parts you need.  Return to
    Orderrealm's portal and step into it to be transported back to the
    Nexus.  Return once again to G-3, and speak with Sektor.  He will
    reward you with "minerals" which equal out to 600 Ruby koins.
    
         If you travel to location G-8, you will find Jade standing
    inside a small tent with her arms crossed.  Speak with her to
    receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 4 (G-8): "Inform Rain of Jade's tent."
         If you speak with Jade, you will learn that Rain has eluded her
    and her allies.  She wants you to find Rain and tell him of her
    tent/camp.
    
    > Solution: You will find Rain at location D-7 sneaking around a
    giant boulder.  Speak with him and he will find it excellent that
    you have found a cave to the east.  He responds by saying that as
    payment, he will spare your life.  He then runs off to her tent.
    Travel to location H-8, and you will find that Jade has killed Rain.
    Speak with her to receive 500 Jade koins.
    
         After receiving and completing the Rain quest, head over to
    location F-3.  Here you will find Raiden walking about (only after
    you beaten Konquest Mode).  Approach him and you will enter into
    Kombat.  You only inflict 10% damage on him, so use high hitting
    combos, and he should go down easily.  Lay on the Block button, and
    use Combo Breakers when necessary.  You only have to beat him one
    round, and he rarely blocks, and is not too aggressive.  Once he is
    defeated, you will earn 400 Platinum koins and the key to koffin
    "EM" which unlocks Raiden's Alt. Costume.
    
         At location E-4/5, you will find a bald man walking around with
    his head cocked at an odd angle.  Speak with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 5 (E-4/5): "Have Queen Sindel bless this sword for
    the civilian."
         When you speak with this man, he tells you that he wishes to
    fight Sindel's forces and be a part of the Edenian Guard.  The only
    problem, is that he needs his sword blessed by Sindel, in order for
    him to fight.  You receive the "Edenian Sword."  Note that the man
    only ventures out of his house during the day, he will not be there
    come nightfall.
    
    > Solution: You must have already trained with Sindel in the main
    storyline in order for you to complete this quest.  Once you have
    trained with her, head over to location C-6.  You will find Sindel
    walking around in front of a large palace.  Note that she will not
    be there at all times of the day.  Meditate until she comes out of
    the palace if she is not there at first.  Speak with her and decline
    the repeat of the training.  She will then gladly bless the sword
    you carry.  With the "Blessed Sword" in tow, return to the man at
    location E-4/5.  He will offer you 400 Sapphire koins he promised
    you.
    
         After you bless the sword for the civilian, travel behind the
    houses at location E-4/F-5.  Here you will find Hsu Hao walking
    through some trees.  Speak with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 6 (E-4/F-5): "Find employment for the assassin Hsu
    Hao."
         When you speak with Hsu Hao, he will explain to you that he is
    an assassin, and that he is looking for an employer.  He wants you
    to find him employment, and will pay you a "finder's fee" in return.
    
    > Solution: Head on over to location D-2.  Here you will find a very
    large house with a massive Yin Yang symbol on the front of it and a
    balcony running along the side.  At the end of the balcony, you will
    find Mavado.  Speak with him and he will be surprised that you have
    found an assassin.  He says that he needs one to infiltrate the
    Special Forces in Earthrealm.  He tells you to tell Hsu Hao to meet
    in by the waterfall behind the palace.  Return to Hsu Hao with this
    information and he will offer you a commission of 500 Sapphire
    koins.
    
         If you travel to location B-3, you will find Reiko walking
    around on a cliff near some trees.  Speak with him to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 7 (B-3): "Present Reiko's document to a Shao Kahn
    soldier."
         If you speak with Reiko, he will tell you to halt and asks you
    to deliver a note to a member of Shao Kahn's army.  He asks you not
    to show it to anyone else.  You receive the "Note from Reiko."
    
    > Solution: If you travel to location C-5, you will find a foot
    soldier standing at the edge of a bridge.  Speak with him and he
    will tell you that if the document fell into the wrong hands, it
    could have brought about destruction.  He says that Edenia offers
    you more than this, "this" being 600 Gold koins.
    
         At location C-4/5 you will find Kitana walking about.  Speak
    with her to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 8 (C-4/5): "Retrieve Sindel's signet ring for
    Princess Kitana."
         If you spot Kitana walking about over and around a bridge speak
    to her.  Note she will only appear after you have completed Konquest
    Mode.  She says she wishes to inspire some troops to fight Shao
    Kahn, and needs to find her mother's signet ring.  She says Sindel
    lost it in the initial invasion of Edenia.
    
    > Solution: If you head to location H-3, you will come across a huge
    boulder.  Behind this boulder is Sindel's signet ring.  Note that if
    you do not retrieve the ring in a timely manner, it will be lost.
    Return to C-4/5, and speak with Kitana.  She will then reward you
    with 500 Onyx koins.
    
         At location B-1, you will find a soldier without a helmet
    standing next to a bridge in front of a waterfall.  Speak with him
    to receive:
    
    -->Side Mission 9 (B-1): "Bring some Edenian pie to this Shao Kahn
    soldier."
         If you speak with this man, he asks you if you know of the
    woman who bakes delicious pies.  He then says that he will pay
    anyone who brings him one.
    
    > Solution: Travel to location B-7.  Here you will find two houses
    with a woman standing outside the one closest to Sindel's palace.
    Note she only stands outside during the day, and retires in for the
    night.  Speak with her and she will poison the pie to give to the
    soldier.  You will then receive "Edenian Pie."  With the poisoned
    pie in your possession, return to B-1, and speak with the soldier.
    He will reward you with 500 Platinum koins after pondering if he
    wants to share or eat it all himself.
    
         After completing these sidequests, we should now head over to
    the green aura at location C-4.  Here you will find Kitana.
    Approach her and she will act astonished as you emerged from the
    portal of the Elder Gods.  She will go on to talk about how Edenia
    has once again been merged with Outworld and ruled by Shao Kahn.
    She then says that Shao Kahn is after a very powerful artifact, to
    which Shujinko says that is the Edenian Kamidogu.  Kitana says that
    her mother, Queen Sindel, needs to be freed in order to helm the
    resistance in Edenia.  Kitana cannot free her herself because she
    needs to travel back to Outworld to lead a fight against Shao Kahn.
    Kitana says that in order to free Sindel, you must defeat Tanya who
    is guarding her.  Shujinko offers his services, and Kitana runs off.
         After speaking with Kitana head over to area E-2 near the
    palace.  Once hear, you will see Tanya walking around under an
    overpass bathed in the aura.  Approach her and Shujinko asks if she
    knows the whereabouts of a Tanya.  Tanya then says that she is
    Tanya, and that she is to guard Sindel with her life; she then says
    that Shujinko has to get past her in order to free Sindel.  Shujinko
    responds with "So be it."
    > This Tanya fight can be a little tough as she is very quick and
    agile.  You are now fighting as Shujinko himself.  I recommend
    staying primarily in the Mantis fighting style, and make use of his
    MANY combos.  His weapon style is not useless but should be used as
    a last resort.  You have no Special Moves as of yet, so those can't
    be used either.  Style-branching Mantis combos and sidestepping are
    you best bets against Tanya.
         After you have defeated Tanya you will earn 500 Ruby koins.
    With her dead on the ground, head left into the green aura at
    location E-1.  Once you step inside the doors, you will find Sindel.
    She claims you are a bit old to fight in Kahn's military.  He says
    he has come on Kitana's orders.  She says they must leave now before
    anyone realizes they have escaped.  She tells you to follow her and
    she will reward you for your efforts.  Sindel will then run out of
    the room.
         Once back outside, follow Sindel to location C-6 where you will
    find her standing in front of a palace/castle.  Approach her and she
    will introduce yourself and thank you for freeing her.  She then
    offers to repay you by teaching you the techniques of an Edenian
    knight.  Shujinko accepts the offer and away we go to Sindel
    training...
    
    -->   Sindel: "An Edenian knight must first undergo Zha Chuan basic
    high attack training."
    
    > Yoke Punch: Tap - 1

    > Cunning Killer: Tap - 4, 4, 4, 4
    > Tap - 1, 1, 2, Back+1, Down+2
    
    -->   Sindel: "Now for the basic high attacks of the Fu Jow Pai
    fighting style."
    
    > Straight Claw: Tap - 1
    > Upward Paw: Tap - 2
    > Back Kick: Tap - 3
    > Roundhouse: Tap - 4

    > Wandering Claws: Tap - 1, 1, 2
    > The Queen: Tap - 1, 1, 1
    
    -->   Sindel: "Not bad, Shujinko.  Now try Fu Jow Pai advanced
    combos."
    
    > Black Tiger: Tap - 1, 1, 1, 3, 3
    > Tap - Up+4, 1, 1, 2
    
    -->   Sindel: "The Kwan Do high attacks are difficult, but you will
    find it to be an elegant weapon once you understand its balance."
    
    > Gauging Slash: Tap - 1
    > Head Chopper: Tap - 2
    > Ranged Blade: Tap - 3
    > Liver Slice: Tap - 4
    
    -->   Sindel: "Excellent!  Finally, you will perfect the Kwan Do

    > Twisting Hilt: Tap - Back+2

    make it easy for you."
    
    > Sliding Foot Grab, Star Screamer, Banshee Scream, Sliding Foot

    -->   Sindel: "For your final test, you must defeat me in battle.
    Do not hold back simply because I am the queen.  I can handle
    myself!"
    
    > Sindel can be pretty tough because she has so many long and
    damaging combos.  I recommend staying in the Zha Chuan fighting
    style and branching to the others.  Her Kwan Do has good range, and
    her Special Moves can catch her off guard.  Once Sindel is defeated
    you will earn 200 Jade koins.
    
         After training is complete, Sindel will tell you that she has a
    piece of the Kamidogu and that she is giving it to you because she
    doesn't want Shao Kahn to find it.  She then goes off to meet with
    Kitana in Outworld to overthrow Shao Kahn's rule.  She wants you to
    bring the Kamidogu back to the Nexus.  Damashi will then appear and
    tell you that you have found the Edenian Kamidogu and that he wants
    you to place it on the altar in order for him to become his physical
    self again.  Return to the portal at location E-4, and transport
    back to the Nexus.
         Once back in the Nexus, Scorpion appears and says that the
    meddling with the Elder Gods has come to an end.  He says that he
    remembers training you in the Netherrealm, and that he will not
    teach you his final lesson.  FIGHT!
    > This fight is the toughest of all.  You have to beat Scorpion 3
    times out of five using Shujinko.  I'm not a huge fan of Shujinko,
    so I found this fight tough.  Use his huge Mantis combos again, and
    keep Scorpion away from you.  Watch out for his Teleport Kick, and
    Hellfire moves.  Sidestepping is your best bet as well because
    Scorpion is relentless in his assault.  If you find him whiff on a
    combo, follow up with a devastating one of your own.  Also, hold the
    Block button, because he will try to punish you with short combos,
    but if they are blocked, he is left wide open for a further beating.
         Once Scorpion is defeated, Shujinko will place the last piece
    of the Kamidogu on the altar to which nothing happens.  The Dragon
    King then appears from off-screen.  Shujinko does not know who it
    is.  Onaga, the Dragon King, then tells Shujinko that he has been a
    pawn in his grand plan.  He has brought him to life!  He then
    produces Damashi in the palm of his hand, showing Shujinko that he
    has been deceived the entire time into finding the pieces of the
    Kamidogu for the Dragon King.  There is still one piece left that
    would transport them to the Elder Gods.  Onaga possesses that piece
    and has no intention of transporting them.  Your quest is far from
    over however, as there is still much to do in Konquest including
    completing some previously unavailable quests, training with
    characters not available before, and unlocking two super secret
    characters.
    
         Congratulations!  You have unlocked Shujinko on the character
    select screen.  After all of that, you will be able to select
    Shujinko as a playable character.  You will also be able to go back
    to any realm in Konquest and complete various things.  The things
    you are able to do after having completed Konquest will be denoted
    in the FAQ in its appropriate place.  If you have any questions, do
    you hesitate to E-Mail me, and I will be glad to help with any
    problems you may have.
    
    YOU HAVE KOMPLETED KONQUEST, KONGRATULATIONS!

    |XIII. Kombat Chess Strategy|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
       Kombat Chess is one of two brand new mini-games in Deception.  It
    resembles the old PC game Archon in that players are able to choose
    characters (Mortal Kombat characters) to represent different
    "classes."  These classes all have special abilities and help
    conquer the enemy.  The match starts out on a 10X10 board with each
    of the player's 16 characters starting out on opposite sides (the 8
    middle squares of the bottom 10 squares of the board).  As the
    players move up and around the board, they are bound to land on a
    square occupied by their opponent.  When this happens, Kombat
    begins.  This kombat is basically like the regular fighting in the
    game.  The characters' health depends on the unit and if they
    currently occupy a power cell square (two green squares toward the
    middle of the board).  Conversely, the basic premise of Kombat Chess
    is to vanquish your foe's Leader.  In your way are Grunts, Shifters,
    Sorcerers and Champions.  These classes' unique abilities will be
    detailed below as well as some basic strategy for this most
    entertaining mode.
    
    
    >Traps:
       Before I get started on the individual units of this game, traps
    must be mentioned.  Before the game starts, the player is prompted
    to set a trap somewhere on the board.  You can select any square
    except for the starting unit squares.  You can even select a "fake"
    trap, effectively faking your opponent out as to where your trap is
    set.  Once these traps are set, the game begins.  If a piece lands
    on an opposing players trap, they are blow into the air dying
    instantly, regardless of their health.
    
    
    >Move limitations:
       Each piece on the board is capable of moving a specific distance.
    Below is a list of the pieces move limitations:
    
    - Grunts can only move 2 spaces in front of them, to the back or
    side and 1 space diagonally.
    
    - Shifters are able to move 5 spaces in any direction on the board.
    
    - Sorcerers, like Grunts can only move 2 spaces in front or to the
    back or side.  Unlike Grunts, however, they are able to move 2
    spaces diagonally.
    
    - Champions are able to move any number of spaces on the game board
    in any direction.
    
    - Leaders are only able to move 1 space in any direction.
    
    
    -->Grunts - Grunts are you most basic unit; when choosing your team,
    make sure your Grunts are a character you are very familiar with as
    you will be using them the most.  You start out with 8 Grunts and
    should be your main means of attack.  Their starting health is a
    little under half, so make sure to occupy those power cells!
    
    -->Shifters - Shifters instantly morph into the character whose
    space they land on.  So for example, if my Shifter is Scorpion and I
    land on a space occupied by Mileena, my Scorpion Shifter will morph
    into Mileena.  When two Shifters of the same character land on the
    same space, they retain their original character.  You start out
    with 3 Shifters.  Their starting health is a little lower than the
    Grunts, so use these characters wisely.
    
    -->Sorcerers - Sorcerers are the only units that are able to cast
    spells throughout the match.  You have 2 Sorcerers (one representing
    Dark Magic, and one representing Light Magic).  They each have 4
    unique spells.  A Sorcerer can continue casting spells until he/she
    is defeated in kombat.  Also, if one Sorcerer is resurrected by
    another, the resurrected one will be able to cast spells again.
    Remember, each spell can only be cast once.  A list of spells and
    their descriptions will be listed below.  You start out with 2
    Sorcerers and they have even lower health than Shifters, around 20%.
    
    -->Champions - Champions are the main defenders of the Leader.  They
    can move anywhere on the board and start out with full health.  Very
    handy pieces to be in possession of.  These pieces should also be a
    character you are very good/familiar with, as they will defend your
    Leader.  You start out with 2 of these pieces at 100% health.
    
    -->Leader - The Leader is basically equivalent to a King in a real
    chess game.  Once the Leader dies, the game is over; check mate in
    other words.  You only get one leader obviously, and their health
    starts at about 80%.  Keeping the Leader alive at all costs is
    essential.
    
    
    >Spells:
    
    Below is a list of spells Sorcerers can use to either help you or
    hinder your opponent.
    
    -->Light Magic spells:
    
    -Heal: Heal is exactly what it sounds like.  Select this spell and
    you are prompted to select any friendly piece for a full heal.
    
    -Teleport: Select Teleport and you are able to teleport any friendly
    piece anywhere on the game board.  This spell also allows you to
    teleport any enemy Grunt, Shifter or Champion.
    
    -Resurrect: Allows the player to bring a dead piece back to life.
    
    -Protect: Protect erects a green cell around any friendly piece
    protecting them from attacks and/or spells for 3 turns.
    
    
    -->Dark Magic spells"
    
    -Kill: This allows the player to kill any enemy Grunt or Shifter on
    the game board.
    
    -Imprison: Erects a prison around an enemy unit preventing them from
    attacking or casting spells.
    
    -Exchange: Allows the player to switch any two Grunts, Shifters or
    Champions.  Keep in mind, not only can you exchange your own pieces,
    you are able to exchange enemy pieces as well.
    
    -Sacrifice: Sacrifice, as its name implies, kills a friendly piece
    in order to fully heal another.
    
      In the end, it is imperative that you pick your team carefully.
    If you are playing against another human player, keep an eye on the
    characters they choose.  If you know a character that they are not
    especially good with, make that character your Shifter to put you at
    an advantage.  Keeping track of where your traps are set is also
    important.  Remember, that it is possible to Teleport an enemy piece
    directly onto your trap.  Use that to your advantage.  One of the
    most important things is to occupy those power cells.  They are well
    worth it!
    
    Check mate!

    |XIV. Puzzle Kombat Strategy|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
       Puzzle Kombat is the second mini-game introduced in Mortal Kombat
    Deception.  Somewhat resembling Super Puzzle Fighter, this game is
    incredibly addictive and very fun.  Six initial characters are
    selectable (with another six unlocked in the Krypt).  These
    characters each possess a Special move that helps them during the
    course of a match, or hinders their opponent.  These Specials can
    turn the tide of battle in a heartbeat, so choose a character that's
    Special is above average; your Special meter continues to increase
    as you break blocks and create combos.  Once it is full, you will
    have a certain amount of time to initiate it before the meter
    resets.  I will rate each character's Special in a section below.
    
    -How to Play:
    
       Puzzle Kombat is relatively simple.  As the course of a match
    begins, two randomly colored squares (Blue, Yellow, Red or Green)
    fall from the top of the screen.  It is the player's job to arrange
    these squares by color.  This is important because every so often, a
    Breaker (a randomly colored Mortal Kombat Dragon Symbol) falls.  The
    Breaker will break if it lands on a block the same color.  The
    blocks same colored block horizontally or vertically of the Breaker
    will break.  For example, if a blue Breaker lands on a pile of 5
    blue blocks, all of those will break.  If a yellow Breaker lands on
    a pile of 6 blue blocks, the Breaker will remain there until coming
    into contact with a yellow square.  Breaking blocks will send
    additional blocks over to your opponent's side.  As the match goes
    on, bombs will randomly drop.  Whatever color square this bomb lands
    on will obliterate every square of that same color.
       It is also possible to perform combos.  These combos are set up
    by having a certain amount of colored blocks break, causing
    different colored blocks to fall and land on a Breaker in the same
    "transaction."  This doubles the amount of blocks that fall onto
    your opponent's screen.  The game ends, where your or your
    opponent's screen is completely filled up with blocks.  Keep in
    mind, the miniature Mortal Kombat characters battling it out on the
    bottom of the screen can in no way be controlled.  They are just
    there to basically "act" out what is going on in the match and who
    is winning.  At the end of a match, the losing player's miniature
    character is killed in usually a humorous way.
       The most important (in my opinion at least) is the use of
    Specials.  These turn the tide of battle very quickly and can turn
    sure defeat into victory.  Below is a list of all the characters and
    their various Specials:
    
    
    >Scorpion - Jumble
       This Special move randomly jumbles all of your opponent's blocks.
    This can, completely rid them of any combo chances they were
    building up.  Unfortunately, it is also possible for this Special to
    jumble his/her blocks into a pattern that affords them a combo.
    
    Rating: 2 out of 5.
    
    
    >Sub-Zero - Freeze
       Freeze, according to my brother (Count Tyrant who authored the
    Puzzle Kombat FAQ on this site) is in love with this Special.  To be
    honest, I have no idea why.  Freeze basically freezes all of your
    opponent's blocks so their color cannot be seen for 5 turns.  The
    only thing that can be done to frozen block is drop a dropping a
    bomb on them.  As block continue to fall, they will just stack on
    top of the blocks already there.  I can see it being useful if your
    opponent has a huge combo building up, but all that does is prolong
    the agony.
    
    Rating: 3 out of 5.
    
    
    >Nightwolf - Breaker Buster
       If you are playing someone who is obsessed with "saving" up their
    Breakers in hopes of completing a huge combo, this Special can be
    very useful.  Nightwolf's Special meter also fills up rather
    quickly, making it deadly against combo heavy opponents.
    
    Rating: 3 out of 5.
    
    
    >Kabal - Double Bomb
       Clearing your entire screen with one turn sounds enticing,
    doesn't it?  That is possible with this Special.  It drops two bombs
    at one time, obliterating half your screen.  This can certainly
    change the tide in a heated battle and shouldn't be taken lightly.
    
    Rating: 4 out of 5.
    
    
    >Ermac - Leviate
       One of my very favorite Specials in the game, Levitate, well
    levitates a mass of blocks on your screen.  It is hard to see
    exactly how many rows are cleared, but I'd venture a guess and say
    anywhere between 8 and 10 rows.  Very helpful Special.
    
    Rating: 4 out of 5.
    
    
    >Sindel - Arrange
       Choosing Sindel for her Special can be a good or bad idea.  First
    of all Arrange can cause the possibility of a huge combo.  It is a
    bad idea because of how s l o w l y her Special meter fills.  As the
    name implies, it arranges all of your blocks by color, in theory
    allowing for some easy breakage.
    
    Rating: 4 out of 5.
    
    
    >Baraka - Edger
       Not as useful as some other Specials in the game, but it can give
    you the gasping breath you need in a heated battle.  This Special
    eliminates the two outermost columns of blocks on the screen.  Only
    useful if your edges are completely filled.
    
    Rating: 2 out of 5.
    
    
    >Bo'Rai Cho - Collapse
       Similar to Ermac's Levitate, Collapse collapses about 8 or 10
    rows.  This rids the screen of those bottom 8-10 rows, effectively
    leaving all of your combos still accessible.
    
    Rating: 5 out of 5.
    
    
    >Raiden - Storm
       This is very helpful if you are in dire straights.  This Special
    "rains" down many blocks onto your opponent's screen as if you just
    combo'ed them.  This can be helpful in covering up any other their
    potential combos, or just winning the game for you then and there
    pending their blocks are near the top of the screen already.
    
    Rating: 5 out of 5.
    
    
    >Jade - Stack
       This causes 4 or 5 rows to be added to your opponent's screen.
    The only downside is that it adds rows from the ground up leaving
    any untapped Breakers up there to be combo'ed.  Still very useful
    and can cause your opponent to lose rather quickly if their blocks
    are already stacked high enough.
    
    Rating: 4 out of 5.
    
    
    >Kenshi - Invisible
       Almost the same as Sub's Freeze, this Special basically makes all
    their block invisible for 5 turns.  Combos can still occur during
    this Special which isn't very helpful unless your opponent memorized
    his block layout.
    
    Rating: 3 out of 5.
    
    
    >Mileena - Drill
       Similar to Baraka's Edger, Drill completely drills out the middle
    two rows on the screen.  This Special is a tad better in that the
    middle two rows seem to fill up more quickly than the outer two,
    making it a smidgen better than Edger.
    
    Rating: 3 out of 5.
    
    
    -->Arenas
       The Arenas in Puzzle Kombat don't play a part in the match
    (typically) but their Death Traps are pretty humorous.  Below is a
    description of the stages and the various death animations
    associated with them:
    
    
    >Sky Temple - The winning player will "summon" lightning to shoot
    down from the sky and landing on your opponent's head.  After a
    couple seconds their head explodes sending their eyes toward the
    camera.
    
    
    >Beetle Lair - The winning player gestures to their opponent to look
    above them.  As they do, a 1-ton weight falls, completely crushing
    them.
    
    
    >Ying Yang Island - As you battle it out on the Puzzle Kombat board,
    two snakes (one on either side of the screen) will jut out back and
    forth.  This can sometimes hinder your view of the blocks.  When one
    player loses, a snake bites off their head.
    
    
    >Slaughterhouse - On either side of the screen are two rotating
    blade columns.  The losing player is shoved into these columns
    causing massive amounts of blood and bone to be "shot" out at the
    winning player who has to shield him/herself from the gore.
    
    
    >Liu Kang's Tomb - There are two torches on either side of the
    screen.  The losing player is pushed into this fire burning them to
    death.
    
    
    >Hell's Foundry - There are two metal smashers on either side of the
    screen.  The winning player shoves the losing player under one of
    these; they get smashed leaving only a pile of blood.
    
       All in all, Puzzle Kombat is VERY fun and should not be missed.
    The best strategy I can give is to set up your Breakers to succeed
    in amassing the biggest combo possible.  It is also very important
    to group your blocks by color.  Have fun with it!
    
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    |XV. The Krypt|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
       The Krypt in Mortal Kombat Deception is a tad different than the
    one featured in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.  It is different in
    that it features 400 koffins as opposed to DA's 676; they run from
    AT-TT instead of AZ-ZZ  That is not a big deal though, as there are
    no empty coffins in this game.  This Krypt is also different in that
    some koffins require keys to be opened.  These keys are found
    throughout Konquest mode and their coordinates will be denoted as
    needed; so any koffin without a price listing requires a key to be
    opened.
         The koffins in the Krypt contain many different things.  These
    unlockables range anywhere from a secret character, to alternate
    costumes, to extra fighting arenas, developer pictures, koncept art
    etc.  Each koffin has a currency type and price.  The Blue koffins
    require Sapphire Koins.  The Gray koffins require Onyx Koins.
    The Green koffins require Jade Koins.  The Red koffins require
    Ruby Koins.  The Gold koffins require, you guessed it, Gold
    Koins, and last but not least, the White koffins require Platinum
    Koins.  Also, remember this, one cannot earn Onyx and Platinum
    Koins in the Arcade and Konquest modes, those can only be earned
    through the mini-games, Puzzle Kombat and Chess Kombat.  Listed below
    is every koffin, its currency type and price and contents.
    *NOTE* Whenever you see an asterisk, (*) that means there is a special
    action in Konquest you must take to obtain that key.  Those actions
    will be listed at the end of the section. *NOTE*

       All 400 koffins are presented above in their original order.  The
    koffins can be classified into different categories; below I will split
    up the koffins into different categories starting with the more
    expensive koffins, as to help you decide which ones you actually want,
    instead of wading through all of the "useless" koffins.  I will have
    categories for just the hidden characters, Puzzle Kombat characters,
    alternate outfits, hidden arenas, Shujinko's Special Moves and
    Fatalities, videos and the koffins containing only kurrency.  All
    koffins denoted with an asterisk (*) will be explained where
    appropriate in this section as well.  For example, if you are looking
    for the Li Mei Alt. Costume asterisk, scroll down to Alternate Costumes
    and find koffin "TE."  There will be an explanation of how to obtain
    that key there. *NOTE* The following items found in the Krypt can all
    be found in the list above.  The following list is just easy reference
    to the more "popular" items. *NOTE*
    
    
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    |Hidden Characters|
    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
       The first category is probably the one that people care
    about the most; the hidden characters.  The hidden characters,
    once unlocked, become playable on the select screen.  Nothing
    else needs to be done.  Their picture becomes highlighted and one
    can play with them to their hearts content. *NOTE* I will list
    the characters in the order they appear on the Select Screen.
