Like any child reared in the 1990s, few things in gaming were as cool as a Mortal Kombat fatality. Whether it was Sub-Zero getting his Predator 2 on with the spine rip or Scorpion lighting some poor kombatant aflame (TOASTY!), nothing capped off a win like a satisfyingly brutal fatality.
However, not all fatalities are created equal. For every Kung Lao slicing his opponent in half in MK2, there’s something that just makes you stare at the screen and go “Wait..what?”
Whether it was a failed attempt at humor or being very clear Ed Boon’s posse were rushed for time, some fatalities have been wildly off the mark.
