                              MORTAL KOMBAT II
                             SEPTEMBER 25, 1994

This moves list was taken from a previous moves list for SNES, revised, and
reorganized.  I created a key to be able to follow the list a little better.
I borrowed this key from another FAQ that was a single page listing that seemed
to fit the moves better.  Instead of looking at a move as "Pressing Y", you
can now look at it as it was meant to be, by "Pressing HP".  If I have made
any grave errors in my translations of any of these moves, please E-MAIL me
directly.  These moves were all taken from a the FAQ v1.6 on the anonymous
FTP site FTP.NETCOM.COM in the /PUB/VIDGAMES/FAQS directory.  I translated all
of the moves from that one to reflect the key below to make it easier to
read and understand.  If you would like to improve upon this list, please
do so and repost it wherever you like.   Please let me know of any revisions
that need to be made so that I can make them and then redistribute the list.


    Added to the bottom of this FAQ with the other secret moves is the listing
of select codes that were posted to News not too long ago.  I figured I might
as well just add them to the list to keep everything in once place.  These were
all added on the above date.

------ EXPLANATION OF BUTTONS & MOVES -----------------------------------------

DIRECTION:              I think that these codes are self-explanatory. The
F,B,U,D                 direction indicates which way you press the SNES
                        Control Pad.

PUNCHES & KICKS:        According the they key below, these are the default
HP,LP,HK,LK             settings for the buttons, which are configurable at the
                        options screen.  Therefore, instead of indicating Y or
                        X as a button to push, as in Hugo's list, I have
                        translated everthing to reflect the correct move.

OTHER MOVES:            These are abbreviated as QF,QA,HF,HA and they mean that
                        you press the control pad in the circular motion
                        according to the key.  Example:  QA means Quarter
                        Circle Away, where you press DOWN, DOWN & AWAY, then
                        AWAY in one continuous motion.

RANGES:                 These are mostly for where you need to stand during
                        a fatality maneuver.

HOW:                    These are substitues for the sequence in which moves
                        are executed.  For example, HP-LP means HIGH PUNCH then
                        LOW PUNCH.  Any time you ever see a button and then a
                        set of parentheses, it means that you hold that button
                        down while executing the maneuver inside the
                        parentheses.  For example: BL(2U-LP) means:
                        HOLD BLOCK while pressing UP twice then LOW PUNCH

BLOCK:                  This is done by pressing either the L or R buttons on
                        the top of the SNES controller

#$ (NUMBER OF SECONDS): Hold the button after the "$" for the number of
                        seconds listed before the "$".

------ OTHER SECRETS ----------------------------------------------------------
RANDOM CHARACTER SELECT:        Hold UP & Press START when the "Choose Your

DISABLE THROWS:                 After choosing your fighters in TWO PLAYER
                                mode, immediately hold DOWN & Press HP when
                                the Portrait (Match) screen appears.  At the
                                beginning of the round, it should say:
                                "THROWING DISABLED"

FALL OFF SPIKES:                Immediately after you uppercut your opponent
                                into the spikes, hold DOWN on BOTH CONTROLLERS.

FOUR CHARACTER TOURNAMENT:      At the Start (ACCLAIM) screen, hold down the
                                L & R buttons on the top of your controller and
                                press START.  You will be at a screen that will
                                let you and your opponent select 4 characters
                                for a long endurance round.

SHAO KHAN'S INTRODUCTION:       As soon as you turn on the game, hold down the
                                L & R buttons on top of your controller and
                                keep holding them down until the screen
                                switches from the copyright screen to the
                                ACCLAIM screen.  The background color will be
                                different, and you will see a new intro, with
                                Shao Khan and Kintaro. It's very cool!!

                                NOTE:  The L and R listed here indicate the
                                direction on the CONTROL PAD ONLY, not the L or
                                R buttons on the top of the controller.
