ii. History                                                             [102]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mortal Kombat 3
*From Wikipedia*
In the realm of Outworld, Motaro's race of Centaurians had come into conflict
with the Shokan. Shao Kahn, Emperor of Outworld, had begun to favor the
Centaurians over the Shokan, and had been punishing the latter, aiding the
Centaurians in their defeat and subjugation. When Kahn formed special
extermination squads to eliminate the chosen warriors of Earthrealm during his
invasion, Motaro was appointed to head this elite group of savage warriors.

Sonya Blade's defeat of Kano during the events of Mortal Kombat Trilogy had
resulted in the Black Dragon member being thrown from a skyscraper to the
streets below. Motaro recovered the severely injured Kano, and brought him back
to Shao Kahn's fortress. After reviving him with magic, Motaro then imprisoned
the criminal so that he could later be punished by Kahn for failing to defeat
Sonya. It is at this point that Motaro was assaulted and killed by Sheeva.

Mortal Kombat Armageddon Ending
Motaro defeats Blaze and his essence consumes Motaro. When the fire stops,
Motaro finds himself having 4 legs again, lifting the curse on Centaurs that
made them Minotaurs. He vowed the Shokan would pay for their treachery.

Mortal Kombat Annihilation
There is a small rivalry with Sheeva in the movie and Motaro is eventually
defeated by Jax at the end.

iii. Notes                                                              [103]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

+VERY Powerful, has a strong special

-Slow, and can be at a disadvantage against a shorter fighter

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
iv. Strategies                                                          [104]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since he doesn't have many moves, I'd strongly recommend using his Power Charge
a lot and every once in awhile switch to doing his "Horse is Down" and "Horse
Palm" combos.

 2. Movelist                                                            [200]

Moves will we listed with the combo needed to enter and then the name. Buttons
separated by commas are inserted after completing the first one and "+" mean
at the same time.

The Playstation 2 and the Xbox are the two systems that have this game so I
have to use a different key that encorporates both systems. There is a simple
key below, and you can expect Wii controls as it releases.

Yes, there is only one style for Motaro.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Fierce Toss............TH
His throw is a generic move, it's easier to use then most fighters and should
be worked into your style.

Power Charge...........B,F+1
Arguably his best move, this running attack will knock the opponent down and
you can even do this while they are lying on the ground! This is something
you'll want to be constantyl using.

Donkey Kick............D,B+4
This is one of his weaker attacks, it's just his kick that really isn't too
effective.

Teleport...............D,U+2
His teleport can come in handy a few times, if you need to get behind someone
or quickly dodge a projectile - this is the thing to use.

Mount Stance...........D,B+3
All this does is just allowing Motaro to get down on all fours and use his
older moves. And the four listed below.


-While in Mount Stance-

Tail Projectile........1
A simple projectile, this can be helpful if you dodge something with the Mount
Stance and quickly retaliate with it.

Low Shoulder Charge....2
This and Propel are his other top moves that are similar to the Power Charge
but just slightly weaker.

Propel.................3
This and Low Shoulder Charge are his other top moves that are similar to the
Power Charge but just slightly weaker.

Back To Normal Stance..4
This simply returns him to his standing position.

 b. Fatalities                                                          [222]
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Fatalities are different this TIME, you get to input your fatality. Here's what
you do! I haven't experienced with it much but I'm pretty sure when it's time
