============================= NIGHTWOLF'S INFO ===================== - NWI1 -

Nightwolf hasn't really been one of my favorites in the earlier games but I
started liking him once I played Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. His good moves
and his style of fighting (Val Tudo) have impressed me. I don't like his 
Tomahawks as much as I like Val Tudo but they definately do give Nightwolf
a strong point.

I personally think Nightwolfe's costumes are really cool. His first one I
like better than the second one but they are both really good. For the first
costume he wears blue trousers and big brown boots for the lower part of the
body. For the upper body, Nightwolf wears an undiscribeable red thing on his
torso,(looks like sort of a vest but anyway) he also wears those things you 
put on your arms (I don't know how you call them) right under his fists. He
has bare arms. For his head he wears a blue head band with a feather sticing
out. He also wears some camo paint on his face. Nightwolf's second costume
is quite a weird one. Nightwolf has a big Mohawk and what looks like a pair
of sunglasses. Nightwolf has Tatooes on both his arms. On his torso he
wears again an undiscribeable top but it once more looks like a vest. He has
very dark blue trousers that look like they might actually be black, and he
wears big brown boots once again although these ones are much darker. To 
unlock this costume play Konquest and you will eventually get it in one of 
the treasure chests, or if you have money you could buy it in the Krrypt.

The games which Nightwolf appears in are :
 Mortal Kombat : 3                    ( 3rd row , 2nd one from the left )
 Ultimate Mortal Kombat : 3           ( Top row , 5th from the left )
 Mortal Kombat : Trilogy              ( 4th row and first one from the left )
 Mortal Komabat : Deception           ( 2nd row , 5th one from the left ) 

 Mortal Kombat : Armageddon obviously.( 3rd row, 1st one from the left )

============================= NIGHTWOLF'S MOVES =================== - NWM2 -

As I had mentioned before Nightwolf's attacks and combos really impressed me.
He is a powerful guy with nice moves. His Tomahawks are not bad either with
better combinations but doesn't look as cool.

                                               up and while they are in the

                                               ground making them bounce 
                                               again and you could do an air

                                               a Virtual Bow and Arrow and
                                               shoots at the enemy. Once it
                                               hits, the arrow stays in them.

========================== NIGHTWOLF'S HISTORY ===================== - NWH2 - 

An attack from Shao Kahn was done to the sacred lands of Nightwolf and his 
people. Nightwolf protected his people from this and Shao Kahn left but he
would come back.

To free the sins of his people, Nightwolf, as a Shaman and the protector of 
his sacred land became a Sin - Eater and absorbed all the sins from his 
people to gain access to the Netherealm and beat Onaga. 

Although this was eating Nightwolf from the inside he was determined to carry 
on and save his people. After beating Onaga he realesed the sins from his 
people and was brought back.

Shao Kahn made another attack, but Nightwolf was ready for it and he was 
equiped and protected his sacred land.

When you complete Nightwolf's arcade mode the ending was that Nightwolf was
granted the power of an ultimate Shaman and that he reunited Liu Kang, his
ally, with his body and returned him to the physical realm.

============================ NIGHTWOLF'S STRATEGY ================== - NWS7 -

Nightwolf's strategy differs. 8 way running is always a neccessity against
anyone ( up, down, Back, Forward etc ). His Tomahawks deliver greater power 
than his Val Tudo stance but they are slower in some aspects. For example
the Lifting Knee is a very powerful move but it is very slow and if they
block it then you are in a vulnerable spot.

Nightwolf's combos are good and he has lots of pop up move for example :
the OVERHEAD SMASH Forward + 2 hits them from overhead down and they hit the 
ground bouncing up. Another one of his pop up moves is the RISING SUN which 
is Back + 1, and then you can follow it up with a good air combo. His 
Tomahawks also have a few good pop up moves, and they have one four button
combo which you should use quite frequently.

The Boss characters (e.g. Goro) are very slow moving and have very poor
combos but nevertheless they are very powerful and rip a lot of life with
just one move. They strike you with one move and take ages to recover from
that, that is why you have got to take advantage of that with 8 way run.
If you use it a lot they will miss you and that will leave them in a nice
and very vulnerable position even though you can't pop the boss characters
up for further punishment in the air. 

As I had mentioned before, the Lifting knee delivers very good damage and 
you should us it when the enemy is close to you and you want him to get
away from you. However it is slow and if you either miss or they block it
then the enemy would take over from there. Also the roundhouse kick (4) 
does good damage, it is quite quick and gets the enemy away from you.

Evn though Nightwolf's combos are good and effective they aren't very long.
His longest Val Tudo move (not counting in the air) is the useful one 
which takes 4 buttons to input and it take his tomahawks out ( 1,1,1,L1). 
These moves are very useful and you should always use them if you want to 
get his weapon out. Not just a normal L1.

============================ NIGHTWOLF'S POINTS ==================== - NWGB -

Nightwolf has some Advantages and Disadvantages.

()  The Good :
          Unlocked at start

          Fast weapons (Tomahawks)

          Balanced with power and speed

          Good Long and Close ranged specials

          The Finish of the Grab hits them in air

()  The Bad :

          Excluding specials, very short ranged

          Not a very big combo guy

() The Ugly :

          Nightwolf is not a fashion guy. Costumes are not neat :D

Apart from his short rangeness which lets hime down, he looks like a very
good player.
