The Navigation System compromised of a combination of letters, and a symbol
(the Tilde (~) key). All of my future FAQs will include this new system, making
for an easier, and more helpful FAQ experience.

Here is how it works:

Look in the Table of Contents for a specific section, find the code and do the
following:

Press CTRL and F on a PC, or the Special Key and F on a Macintosh. A search box
will then appear; search for the code, and you will be taken to that section.

--------
 Baraka
--------

Fighting Styles: Silat, Hung Gar, Blades
Place of Origin: Outworld
Alignment:       Evil
Allies:          Shao Kahn, Deadly Alliance, Dragon King
Foes:            Bo'Rai Cho





--------------
 Baraka's Bio
--------------

<Picture of Baraka with his Blades out and wearing his Primary Costume>

"I am of the Tarkata, a savage race of nomadic warriors bred from denizens of
Outworld and demons of the Netherrealm. My kind have served many masters: Shao
Kahn, Shang Tsung, Quan Chi... All have fallen. All have been weak. But our new
master is strong! Invincible! We will slay all who oppose him! We will follow
him to bloody victory!"





------------------------
 Baraka's Alternate Bio
------------------------

<Picture of Baraka with his Blades out and wearing his Alternate Costume>

"ONAGA! He has ordered us to ravage Outworld in order to distract the foolish
allies and give him time to complete his plans. Mileena poses as Princess
Kitana to confuse and misdirect the enemies of the Dragon King. She lies to
them and tells them to attack our raiding parties. But our Lord will be nowhere
near us. We draw their armies away from him. When my master's will is done,
they will all be consumed!"

 MK: Deception Kollector's Edition Baraka Kover
------------------------------------------------

The MK: Deception Kollector's Edition retailed for $59.99, and was available
in a variety of Kovers. EB Games sold the Scorpion Kover, Wal-Mart sold the
Raiden Kover, and GameStop sold the Baraka Kover. All other places such as
GameCrazy got the Mileena Kover. I love Baraka, so I got mine at GameStop.
It would also be helpful if I noted that the Kollector's Edition was only
for the Xbox version of MK: Deception; The PlayStation 2's version of the
Kollector's Edition was called the "Premium Pack", and featured only ONE
cover, which was Sub-Zero.


The Kollector's Edition has these main differences from the Standard Edition:

• Kollector's Edition Foil Baraka DVD Case Cover Slip
• Kollector's Edition Foil Baraka Box Art
• Extra's DVD containing full 'Arcade Perfect' Version of Mortal Kombat 1, and
  "The History of Mortal Kombat".
• Metal Baraka Trading Card
• Full Color Instruction Manual (Standard Edition Manual is in Black & White)

Baraka turns the victim toward him and brings out his Blades. He then slices
the victims arms, legs, and head, then stabs them through their chest  then
proceeds to pull the victim toward him, while the arms, legs, and head stay in
place and then fall to the floor when the body is no longer there. Baraka then
holds what is left of the body on his Blade triumphantly.




Fatality 2: "Skewered"

Forward,Down,Back,Forward,2 *Must be within 'Sweep' Distance (At least one step
from the victim)

still in the air, he brings out one of his Blades, and then catches the head as
it is falling on the Blade, effectively skewering it.

Baraka brings out one of his Blades, and cuts his own head clean off his
shoulders. Baraka then falls to the ground dead.

TO CONTACT ME PLEASE E-MAIL ME AT: <EMAIL REMOVED- NO LONGER UPDATING FAQ>


The following Websites have permission to use my FAQ:

- www.GameFAQs.com
- www.IGN.com
- www.GameSpot.com


No UNOFFICIAL Websites may use this FAQ. Do not bother to E-Mail
me asking to use this FAQ on your Website, unless you meet specific
requirements* as I WILL say NO! The reason behind this is the fact
that some people are too lazy to go to GameFAQs to get the latest
version of my FAQ, and when readers E-mail me, it causes problems.
For example, in one of my older FAQs, someone told me that my FAQ
was wrong about a certain topic, where as it had been corrected
about two months before, so I decided that I shouldn't let people
host my FAQs when they can't keep them updated. It's not my job to
send out a Zip file every time I update a FAQ, to two or three other
hosts.

* I.E., not having a steady amount of bandwidth, visitors, or other
  conditions, which are subject to determination by me.
