==========================================================================

 This guide's is a collective of all the information I could find about
 the final boss and main villain of Mortal Kombat: Deception, Onaga the
 Dragon King. It is by no means complete, a good FAQ never is, but it
 does contain everything I've learned about the character.

 An online version of this guide will soon be available on my website
 as soon as I finalize this text-based version of it.

 This guide, so far, is only to appear on www.gamefaqs.com until I decide
 to post it on others sites.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Version 1.2 - Fixed a few errors.

 Version 1.1 - Updated Gamecube method to play as Onaga. Made a seperate
               section about unlocking Onaga.

 Version 1.0 - I think this is as complere as an Onaga FAQ is going to
               get, until there turns up a way to control him without
               a cheat device.

 Version 0.4 - Corrected a few mistakes.

 Version 0.3 - Added a faster mirror for the photos. Corrected a few more
               things in information. Added yet another special move.

 Version 0.2 - Editted the layout a little. Added another special move
               to his list. A few people emailed me to correct the fact
               that Onaga will indeed stage death you in the last fight
               of arcade mode. Added Onaga's Puzzle Fighter info. Added
               more to the FAQ section.

 Version 0.1 - Pretty much just started. Added everything I could right
               now, plus I'm sure there's going to be some spelling
               mistakes. Definitely there will be updates to come.
               Hopefully the the guide will reach FINAL status when the
               real way to unlock him is known.

| HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE                                        | MKDO103 |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 A growing trend in newer game guides is the use of virtual page numbers.
 This has helped incredibly for readers to navigate rather lengthy
 guides. Just use your browser's FIND command (Ctrl + F for most) to type
 in the "page number" listed. They are listed only twice, in the Table of 
 Kontents and their respective section, so you can leap directly to a 
 section.

==========================================================================
| ONAGA BACKGROUND                                             | MKDO200 |
==========================================================================

 Onaga is introduced with back story, dating back since MK:DA. He also has
 a planned ending, as seen in the Production Art. His ending never made it
 into the programming, however.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| BACK STORY                                                   | MKDO201 |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Onaga was first mentioned in the introduction of Mortal Kombat: Deadly
 Alliance. Shang Tsung and Quan Chi formed an alliance to wake the army
 of the Dragon King. It is said that whomever controls this army would
 be unstoppable. Onaga is the Dragon King whom this army once belonged
 to.

 Onaga was the original ruler of Outworld, the parallel universe to 
 Earthrealm. His grand advisor, Shao Kahn, betrayed Onaga by poisoning
 him, thus killing him. Shao Kahn assumed the throne of Outworld and
 transformed it into an imperialistice realm, bent on conquering the
 other realms. He would hold tournaments called Mortal Kombat in which
 the inhabitants of the realms would have a chance to save their land
 from Shao Kahn taking it over. This would prove furitless, however,
 as kombatants who would finish Mortal Kombat would meet their fate
 when they were faced with Kahn's bodyguard, Kintaro. Anyone who could
 beat Kintaro would then have to fight Kahn himself, and all who have
 reached Kahn have only met their deaths. Kahn handed control of the
 Mortal Kombat tournament to Shang Tsung as he had to deal with other
 matters, mainly involving resurrecting his queen, Sindel. Meanwhile,
 a mysterious egg emerged in the depths of Outworld...

 One arena in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance featured the Dragon King's
 egg in a lava type environment. This was Onaga's egg. It would take the
 six Kamidogu to provide the power to hatch this egg. The character Blaze,
 a hidden fighter in MK:DA, was the guardian of the egg. It is assumed in
 the events of MK:D's Konquest that Onaga erases Blaze's memory and kills
 him, which is why you can find Blaze wandering the Netherrealm without
 a memory.

 Mortal Kombat: Deception opens up with Onaga marching in on the battle
 between Raiden, Shang Tsung and Quan Chi. This causes the former enemies
 to put aside their difference to focus on trying to defeat this greater
 evil. Their combined might could not destroy him, so Raiden sacrificed
 himself in an explosion of light in an attempt to kill Onaga. This act
 only resulted in the deaths of Quan Chi, Shang Tsung, and the destruction
 of the Dragon King Army. Raiden, being a god, did not die but returned
 to the Realm of Order (MK:D's equivalent of Heaven).

 Having been fed up  with the humans constantly bringing the Earthrealm 
 to the brink of destruction, Raiden became a dark god. He no longer cared
 about protecting the human race, his new objective was to make sure that
 the humans did not destroy Earthrealm. He was particularly angered with
 the warrior Shujinko, the human who was decieved into collecting the six
 Kamidogu and awakening the Dragon King.

 Onaga waits in his palace, with the six Kamidogu and Shinnok's amulet
 which has the power to merge the Kamidogu and the realms. One by one
 the kombatants of the sixth Mortal Kombat tournament attempt to 
 challenge Onaga and protect the realms from mearging into the One Being.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ONAGA'S ENDING                                               | MKDO202 |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Scene 1: "My enemies had failed to prevent me from fusing all the
           weapons of the Elder Gods into one. I used this ultimate
           weapon to warp reality, merging the realms into a singular
           existence."

 Scene 2: "Not satisfied with merely ruling one realm, I took all that 
           exists and merged it into myself. There can only be one
           consciousness. I am everything. I have become... the One
           Being."

 Note: Onaga has no ending if you beat the game. The ending comes from
 the Production Art for his planned, but never implimented, ending.

| PLAYING AS ONAGA                                             | MKDO300 |
==========================================================================

 Onaga only has one fighting style. Using the CS button will just
 keep repeating it. You will notice many of the same moves have 
 different button combonations. He's a rather simple character. Be
 prepared to just use a lot of strong, melee combat and a few simple
 and powerful moves. He plays a lot like the boss characters in the
 previous Mortal Kombats.

| PUZZLE FIGHTER                                               | MKDO303 |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 I've discovered that Onaga indeed has a Puzzle Fighter version of him
 hidden in the game. Whether or not he can be sed or fought against by
 conventional methods is yet to be known.

 Super: Arrange (Arranges all the colored blocks next to each other)

 If you decide to play as Onaga, you must keep in mind two things. First
 of all, his wings cover up about 30% of your play area. So only play as
 him if you're pretty good. Second, his super move builds up very, very
 slowly. I doubt you'll ever get to use the move unless you're playing
 3-round matches. Other than that, he plays like any other Puzzler.

==========================================================================
| FIGHTING AGAINST ONAGA                                       | MKDO400 |
==========================================================================

 As Onaga is a boss character, he does not play like a normal battle. He
 does require a different approach, and a gimmicky tactic is required if
 using a normal kombatant to face him.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| NORMAL CHARACTERS VS ONAGA                                   | MKDO401 |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Onaga is like Motaro in that he is completely immune to projectile
 attacks. This could be why Raiden, Shang and Quan Chi were unable to 
 defeat him in the beginning of the game--all they used were their
 projectile attacks. You have to hit him with strong melee attacks and
 combos. Do not jump attack him.

 You will notice he has high defense. You need to use the Up and Down
 buttons to move towards the six Kamidogu and touch them. When you
 break a Kamidogu, Onaga will be stunned briefly and his defense will
 be halfed for one attack. Use this oppertunity to hit him with a long
 chain combo. You only have six chances per battle to use this tactic.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ONAGA VS ONAGA                                               | MKDO402 |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 If playing as Onaga, one thing you'll notice is that you can not smash
 the six Kamidogu. You need to just lay on the melee attacks faster than
 the CPU Onaga can lay them on you. Do not bother to use the Dragon
 Breath or Dragon Slam as Onaga is immune to both.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| VS PUZZLE KOMBAT ONAGA                                       | MKDO403 |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 When fighting Onaga in Puzzle Kombat, the same handicap that applies to
 using him applies to fighting against him: his wings. As his wings will
 cover up a good portion of his play field, you can not be too sure what
 combos he is building up. He'll rarely get to use his super, as his
 super meter builds up very slowly. Other than that, he is fought like
 any other Puzzle Fighter.

==========================================================================
| UNLOCKING ONAGA AS PLAYABLE                                  | MKDO500 |
==========================================================================

 Currently Onaga is unavailable to be playable outside of a cheat device
 such as Codebreaker or Action Replay. I used Codebreaker kodes to play 
 as Onaga. For PS2, these only work with the normal version of MK:D, not 
 the Premium Package. No Gameshark kodes exist, officially anyway.

 Note: These codes will enable Onaga for both Arcade and Puzzle modes.

 If a technique to officially unlock Onaga without a cheat device, this
 guide will be updated with that information immediately.

| FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS                                   | MKDO602 |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 1. Is Onaga playable?
 A. We don't know yet. It's possible. For now you can use a Cheat Device.
    Because of his deal with the ending, I believe if he is playable, he
    is only playable in 2-player mode. Although, Goro and Noob in MK4
    were playable in 1-player and they didn't have endings either.

 2. Is there an easy way to beat Onaga?
 A. Just collect the Kamidogu, and hit him while he's stunned.

 3. Is he related to the mystery Koffin WQ?
 A. He might be. Afterall he only needs one koffin, he does not have a
    storyboard, bio, alt costume or alt bio.

 4. Can Onaga perform stage deaths?
 A. Yes he can... and he'll do it to you in the final battle of arcade
    mode if you're not carefull!
 
 5. Can you perform a stage death on Onaga?
 A. As far as I know, yes. At least the cliff stage works. You can not
    perform the Dragon King's Temple stage death on him, at least in
    arcade mode. Some work, some don't.

 6. What happens if you beat the game with him?
 A. It just goes to the credits, skipping any story-line ending.

 7. What about the Production Art unlocked in koffins IQ and MN?
 A. Apperently Midway wrote a storyline ending for him. It seems they
    did not wind up programming it in, however.

 8. Does Onaga have combos?
 A. No, he only has melee and special moves. He plays a lot like Goro,
    Kintaro, Motaro and Moloch from the previous games.

 9. Can Onaga use the weapons found in arenas?
 A. Yes, and he can perform the combos related to them too. These are
    the only combos he can do, in fact.

 10. Does Onaga have Fatalities or a Hara-Kiri?
 A.  No, it just goes right to the "Onaga Wins" message if you win.
     However you can perform stage fatalites with him.

 10. Do the Codebreaker codes to use him work online? (PS2 only)
 A.  Yes they do. Surprise you online friends in both Arcade and Puzzle
     Kombat by using Onaga!

 11. Where can I see pics for proof of him in arcade and Puzzle Kombat?
 A.  I am now hosting them here: http://www.picturetrail.com/elranzer/

 13. Any other interesting facts about him?
 A.  Yes I know of a few things...
     - If you play as Onaga, the load screen almost always shows Onaga
       render artwork.
     - Onaga has only one melee attack listed in his Move List.
     - Onaga only has Dragon Breath listed as a special move, the other
       special moves are not listed. Strange.
     - You can use CS to switch fighting styles. However, it just keeps
       cycling back to Dragon.
     - The Move List actually lists one combo (1,2) but it does not work.
     - His throw move does not work most of the time, but it does work.
     - Rumor has it that Raiden's ending in MK:DA shows a preliminary
       picture of Onaga.
     - Onaga's ending is the one of only three told in 1st-person
       perspective.
