    *From Wikipedia*
    Goro was introduced in the very first Mortal Kombat game as the sub-boss, where
    he was infamously very difficult to defeat. More than two thousand years old,
    he is the Prince of the Shokan race, hailing from the Kuatan realm of Outworld.
    As a General in the Outworld Emperor Shao Kahn's militia, he fights for the
    pride and glory of his people.

    ii. History                                                             [102]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    *From Wikipedia*
    Goro became Grand Champion of the Mortal Kombat tournament after defeating the
    Great Kung Lao. For 500 years, he remained undefeated and helped Shang Tsung
    grow ever closer to achieving Shao Kahn's goal of domination over Earthrealm.
    In his 10th title defense, however, he faced Liu Kang. Kang pushed him to his
    limits and finally defeated the mighty Shokan warrior. In the tournament's
    aftermath, Goro went missing after a battle between him and Kano, Johnny Cage,
    and Sonya Blade. He was believed to be dead. It is theorized that he actually
    retreated back to his kingdom during this time. Shang Tsung, meanwhile, faced
    execution for his defeat at the hands of Liu Kang and for Goro's apparent death.
    
    Goro would resurface after Kahn's downfall, during the events of Mortal Kombat
    4/Mortal Kombat Gold. Despite having the intent to avenge his losses at Liu
    Kang's hands, Goro began to take an interest in the matters of his own race and
    joined his fellow Shokans in war against the Centaurians. Princess Kitana
    intervened and negotiated both races through a truce and peace accord. The
    meeting was interrupted by Kung Lao who desired to challenge his ancestor's
    killer. The Shaolin Monk lashed out with a ceremonial strike of revenge that
    left Goro's chest scarred. Considering the score settled, the two shook hands.
    When Shinnok and his legion were defeated and Edenia was free once more, Goro
    and the Shokan race decided to ally themselves with the Edenians.
    
    Years later, during the time of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, the united
    Edenian and Shokan forces attacked the weakened Shao Kahn's armies. Exhausted
    from battle, Goro was struck from behind by Noob Saibot. He was mortally
    wounded, apparently dying from the injury. However, Goro is able to survive,
    being saved from death by Shao Kahn himself. He vows his allegiance to the
    emperor, making the Shokan allies of Kahn once again.
    
    Mortal Kombat Armageddon Ending
    Goro defeats Blaze and attains the power of a god. Shao Kahn, Onaga, Quan Chi,
    and Shang Tsung had formed an alliance to get this power, only to have it
    stolen from them. They confronted Goro in an attempt to get it, but Goro
    laughed and from beyond the pyramid came an army of Shokan that killed the four
    attackers. The Shokan would rule Outworld.
    
    Mortal Kombat The Movie
    Goro is shown as this unstoppable beast and is eventually defeated by Johhny
    Cage.

    Goro is actually one of the best kombatants there is. He has a lot of good
    combos and specials so you should take advantage of them. Try out King Of
    Shokans and Hands of Fury to get things started.

    separated by commas are inserted after completing the first one and "+" mean

    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 are only two styles for Goro.

    Four Armed Price..........TH
    This throw is one of the better ones, I recommend trying to use this as often
    as it's possible to use
    
    Ultimate Force............D,B+1
    UF is an okay move, not the strongest, but certainly not his weakest
    
    Spinning Slaps............D,F+2
    This move is one of his best, try and use this as often as possible
    
    Tremor Pound..............U,D+3
    I don't particulary like this move, it doesn't seem to be very helpful
    
    Leaping Stomp.............D,U+3
    This move is pretty good but it really has to be timed near perfect

    you do! I haven't experienced with it much but I'm pretty sure when it's time
    to FINISH HIM, you can chain things together with different moves. Experience
    with all the moves to find some cool fatalities!

    I give my thanks to Midway, for creating yet another awesome Mortal Kombat
    game. They do their job so well that they're able to bring something new every
    year. Who knows what they'll do next.
