My e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org This is also my MSN contact, so if you prefer real time chat, this is the way to go. I-B. What is MK3? >-----------------< MK3 = Mortal Kombat 3 Mortal Kombat 3 was released in 1995 by Midway. It took a different direction compared to its predecessors. Included in this new installment is a RUN button and combos. See I-C for comparison information with Mortal Kombat II. I-C. Comparison Notes >---------------------< In this section, I will list what has been changed since Mortal Kombat II. - There is the introduction of the RUN button. Self-explanatory. - There is the introduction of combos, much like Killer Instinct, only not as serious. You press a certain sequence/combination of buttons, and text will fly out showing how many hits you've done including the amount of damage you inflicted. May not be accurate at times. - A plethora of new characters, with a few from previous games. Sonya, Kano, Liu Kang, and Sub-Zero(now unmasked, with a new outfit), are among the classics. Everyone else is new. - Animalities are added in. However, the conditions must be met by giving your opponent mercy at the third round after you knock him/her out. Who the heck wants to give mercy anyway? Isn't this Mortal Kombat? - No noticeable backgrounds from previous games. All of them are new. - Instead of going up one tower, you now have three towers to choose from. Difficulty is the same, and the only real difference between them is the amount of foes you fight. Also, there are no question marks to be seen, nor Endurance matches. - A new sub-boss(previous Goro/Kintaro) has arrived. Yes, this is one more "ro" Midway thought up of. Its name is Motaro. It's a centaur(half human, half horse) with horns. Beware, as this boss is no joke. - Shao Kahn has gained a bunch of new quotes. You'll see him speaking character names as well as some familiar classics, like "Flawless Victory" and "Finish Him!". - A new six-square combination passcode system has been implemented. (John Tobias, co-designer, thought this one up). This only shows up in two-player games. You'll see what I mean when you visualize the VS screen. Player 1 controls the first 3, and Player 2 controls the other 3. There are many possible different combinations, and if you manage to unlock something, it'll show up on the bottom once the fight starts. - There are 10 Stages in this version of MK3. They are as follows: Shao Kahn's Tower The Subway(can be uppercutted to the Street) The Street The Bank(Can be uppercutted to The Rooftop) The Rooftop Soul Chamber(can be uppercutted to The Balcony) The Balcony The Bridge Kombat Temple Pit 3 - Everyone has an introduction bio, except Smoke/Motaro/Shao Kahn. - Everyone has an ending bio, except Motaro/Shao Kahn. I-D. Controls >-------------< Depending on which controller you use, it can be easy or difficult to pull off moves. Controls(Default) ----------------- Up - JUMP Down - CROUCH Left - MOVE LEFT Right - MOVE RIGHT High Punch - Y Low Punch - B High Kick - X Low Kick - A Block - L Run - R I-E. Gameplay Information >-------------------------< Characters .......... MK3 has more characters than the previous games. What makes this different from Capcom's Street Fighter or SNK's King of Fighters is that EVERY CHARACTER has a projectile, which I find kind of whack. However, the good side is that this game is much more gruesome, and has always earned a Mature 17+ rating.

For the RUN button, you hold forward and RUN to make your character run. You RUN meter will then go down, and once it depletes, your character stops. Your RUN meter also depletes when executing combos. Unlike Mortal Kombat II, the more hits you do in a combo, the less damaging per hit(although MKII never really had combos). So if you go insane at an opponent, and finally realizing someday when did the 7 hit equal 2% came from, that's what I meant. o Mortal Kombat 3's fatalities weren't as gruesome as their predecessors. This includes stage fatalities as well(Dead Pool from MKII will win anyday over any other stage fatality in MK3). o Unlike MKII, where your CPU opponent is always on the move, in this game CPU characters will often stay at half screen standing there waiting for you to attack. If you don't, they'll take the chance and will most likely succeed. This is quite a change, as this time they will give you time to think what to do next. o If you've been playing Street Fighter or King of Fighters too much, you're probably thinking Mortal Kombat would have a similar system. Well, not quite.. and here's what I mean: - You do NOT hold back to block. Mortal Kombat has its own Block button, and that's how you block. - You WILL die if all your energy is depleted(not quite the case in Street Fighter/King of Fighters). - There are NO special intros, even if the two characters are connected(in terms of background) to one another. You won't see Sub-Zero react to Smoke, or Kitana reacting to Sindel. - Every character has a projectile. - There are NO rotations necessary for commands(none of that Down to Forward Punch stuff. It's simply.. Down, Forward, Punch). - You can NOT chain light punches/kicks one after another. It doesn't work that way. Mortal Kombat is less cheese than Street Fighter/King of Fighters. - You DON'T have DMs or SDMs. Mortal Kombat uses a finishing system, so if your opponent is knocked out and Shao Kahn says Finish Him/Her, you enter a finishing command properly and watch the gruesome ways your opponent can die. Shao Kahn's Towers .................. When you start a one-player game, you'll be presented with three towers. NOVICE, WARRIOR, and MASTER. NOVICE - Six combatants, Two bosses WARRIOR - Eight combatants, Two bosses MASTER - Ten combatants, Two bosses The two bosses will always be Motaro first, then Shao Kahn. ^--------------------------------------------------------------^ SECTION II: CHARACTER INFORMATION >--------------------------------------------------------------< II-A. Story >-----------< You have been chosen to represent the Earth in Mortal Kombat. Be warned, for although your souls are safe from Shao Kahn's evil, your lives are not. I can no longer interfere as your Earth is now rules by the Outworld Gods - RAIDEN For centuries Earth has used Mortal Kombat to defend itself against the Outworld's emperor, Shao Kahn. But Kahn grows frustrated by failed attempts at taking Earth through tournament battle. He enacts a plan which began 10,000 years ago. During this time, Shao Kahn had a queen. Her name was Sindel, and her young death was unexpected. Kahn's shadow priests, led by Shang Tsung, make it so Sindel's spirit would someday be reborn: not on the Outworld, but on the Earth realm itself. This unholy act gives Shao Kahn the power to step through the dimensional gates and reclaim his queen thus enabling him to finally seize the Earth realm. Upon branching the portal into Earth, Shao Kahn slowly transform the planet into a part of the Outworld itself. Kahn strips the Earth of all human life: claiming every soul as his own. But there are souls which Kahn cannot take. These souls belong to the warriors chosen to represent Earth in a new Mortal Kombat. The remaining humans are scattered throughout the planet. Shao Kahn sends an army of fierce Outworld warriors to find and eliminate them. After the first tournament, Sonya Blade turned up missing. Jax then embarked on a rescue mission into the Outworld. He found Sonya being held with her nemesis Kano. In freeing Sonya, Jax also frees Kano. Kano then uses the chance to escape arrest. The Ultimate Advancement in Lin Kuei technology comes with the creation of the firt cyber assassins. THey begin converting their human ninjas into souless machines. But Sub-Zero refuses to take part and is marked for death by his own clan. After winning the first Mortal Kombat and escaping from the Outworld, Liu Kang looks to the future. He begins training a new generation of Shaolin alongside Kung Lao. But nothing could prepare them for the unexpected Outworld invasion. II-B. Biography/Move List >-------------------------< Legend/Key: D-pad ----- B - Back F - Forward U - Up D - Down HP = High Punch LP = Low Punch BL = Block RN = Run HK = High Kick LK = Low Kick Close Range = Stand close to opponent Sweep = Stand in sweeping range from opponent Half Screen = Stand in jumping distance from opponent Full Screen = Stay at far as possible from opponent All commands are assuming that player is on left side of screen. If you are on the right side, back and forward directions are reversed. If command requires U to execute, you may hold down BL to make things easier. For example, Smoke's whackest fatality(End of the World) requires player to U-U-F-D at Full Screen. If you hold BL first, and then execute the command, it'll still work. Combos/Stage Fatalities MUST be done up close. Babalities/Friendships can be done as long as you don't press Block during winning round(Round 2 or 3). Animalities can only be done on the third round after you give your opponent mercy. Cyrax ----- BIO: Cyrax is Unit LK-4D4, the second of three prototype cybernetic ninjas built by the Lin Kuei.

Character Win Screens ........................... Cyrax ----- Cyrax is captured by Sub-Zero and reprogrammed with new orders: to destroy Shao Kahn. With Kahn unable to detect his assassin's soulless presence, Cyrax delivers a successful sneak attack. However, after eliminating Kahn and saving Earth, Cyrax awaits new orders from his Lin Kuei headquarters. The orders never come and Cyrax malfunctions. He ends up stranded in the middle of a vast desert, blindly heading towards his base. Jax --- The second time Jax battles the forces for Shao Kahn he comes prepared. Thought to be the strongest man on Earth, he has no problem proving it: First by beating Kahn's armies and then by defeating the Emperor himself. When the world reverts back to normal, Jax & Sonya start the Outworld Investigation Agency. Jax runs the exploratory division which learns to open portals through science rather than magic. He leads the first expedition into a mysterious new realm. Kabal ----- After returning from near death, Kabal swears revenge against his attackers. He fights alongside the other Earth warriors. When he defeats Motaro and the mighty Shao Kahn he proves that he truly is the chosen one. Before the invasion, Kabal lived a life of crime. He was once a member of the Black Dragon alongside Kano. Now Kabal devotes his life to fighting injustice. He will give crime's inner circles a new reason to fear. Kano ---- When Shao Kahn lets Kano live he fails to realize the resourcefulness of the scheming human. Kano lures Kahn's armies away on a false mission: then nukes them using a stolen weapon. He fights the remaining warriors and finally defeats Kahn himself. Kano's true intention is to take over the souls which Kahn once possessed. But Kano is unable to control the spirits as they escape and attack him. Rumored to have suffered a violent death, Kano was ignorant of the fact that he saved the world he tried to conquer. Kung Lao -------- When Shao Kahn invades Earth, Kung Lao must scrap his plans of reuniting the White Lotus Society. He instead must focus on the new tournament. He seeks Liu Kang and together they battle Kahn's minions fearlessly. Using the knowledge he obtained as a Shaolin Monk he fights in the name of his great ancestor-the original Kung Lao. He emerges victorious but suffers from injuries during battle with Kahn. Believed to have passed away, Kung Lao joins his ancestors in a new life. Liu Kang -------- After thwarting Shao Kahn in the past, Liu Kang finds himself the prime target of Shao Kahn's extermination squads. But Kang is the reigning MK champion and proves it by easily defeating Kahn's minions. But it's the apparent death of his friend Kung Lao that enrages Kang and enables him to find the strength to defeat Shao Kahn. Then, before the portal closes, Liu Kang is greeted by Princess Kitana and thanks for saving the Earth and the Outworld. Nightwolf --------- Nightwolf helps the other Earth warriors escape to his sacred land. Once there, they regroup and plan a form of attack against Shao Kahn's invasion. Nightwolf has trained hard for this battle. Finally, he faces Shao Kahn and emerges victorious. When the Earth returns to its normal state, Nightwolf peacefully regains his land and his Native American people lost over many years. They establish their own proud nation and soon become the great leaders of Earth. Sektor ------ After eventually terminating Sub-Zero, Sektor is attacked by Shao Kahn's army. Unfamiliar with the Outworld warriors, Sektor fights back. He targets Kahn and all Outworld beings as threats to the Lin Kuei. Kahn's minions are no match for Sektor, who fights his way into the fortress. Once inside, Sektor initiates his self-destruct sequence. The resulting explosion is so massive that it closes the portal and returns Earth back to normal. Shang Tsung ----------- When Shao Kahn overtakes the Earth, he needs Shang Tsung to help locate the surviving humans.

Glitches >---------------< Infinite Kombo with Smoke ......................... Uh-oh, that has been floating around for ages. It works. Just keep tapping Back and LP constantly after you catch your opponent with the Hook. May not be effective against Liu Kang, Motaro, and Shao Kahn. Other Glitches .............. Glitch: With Quick Uppercut Recovery ON, it's possible to juggle the opponent until they're dead. This works in both MK3 and UMK3, however, it's much more difficult to do in MK3 and actually requires timing...if you screw it up, you WILL have the normal lag time after an uppercut. Glitch: With Quick Uppercut Recovery **AND** Quick Finish ON, kill the opponent with an uppercut so they're popped into the air. Press R the INSTANT the game says "Finish Him/Her". You'll DO the Babality... but the opponent will be in midair!!! This also works in UMK3. ^--------------------------------------------------------------^ SECTION IV: CREDITS >--------------------------------------------------------------< - GameFAQs for posting it. - Me for writing it. - Megaman X/David Blacic for contributing.. - Midway's Ed Boon/John Tobias and team for making the game!
