Game Rant writes "The fatality is the main selling point of any Mortal Kombat game. The whole purpose of the fatality is to mock your opponent in a brutal and bloody fashion once you’ve beaten them to a mess on the floor. Often times they’re very nasty, and even in today’s somewhat desensitized media, can shock the player.
Sometimes however, the Mortal Kombat fatality chosen just doesn’t work. Whether it’s because it doesn’t make any sense, even within the boundaries set by the game, or it just isn’t that effective, some fatalities fail in their attempt to shock and amaze."
