EDIT: I apologize, this fuckers frame rate is supposed to be running at 16 FPS, I dont know why its running and what seems like 12 FPS, my master copy got messed up somehow and I cant fix the issue. Once again I apologize, this is really disappointed to watch in this format.

Way back when in 1993 MK2 hit the arcades. As a die hard fan I always wondered why only one character in the game had 3 fatalities.

Being a little OCD I made up my own 3rd fatalities for the characters, and now after all this time finally got around to animating them. Being that Shang Tsung was the only character to have 3 fatalities in the game, hes the only character who doesnt have one in this 94 second animation.

The animation here uses no MK sprites, I know folks love their MK flashes with MK sprites, but I didnt want to follow the crowd.

Bosses and secret characters each have one fatality, and I opted to create fatalities around the existing games sprite library. Just my OCD trying to create somethign that at the very least could seem authentic to the game I suppose.

Each fatality's name is listed at the bottom of the screen, there are 16 total and this is in 'supreme demonstration' format. its only 94 seconds so time flies fast. For the 'insane detail crowd', I didnt opt to animate every characters win pose, they just do their fatality, stop in place, and move onto the next fatality. That animation didnt seem neccesary, and would have just added another 6 seconds of animation that we all could live without.

It's good but

The guy below me is kind of right, I have seen most of those fatalities already done in the later games. And the first one is EXACTLY like one that already exists. Although it's hard to find a new way to kill someone in which MK hasn't done already. 1, 2, 5, 11 are already in existing Mortal Kombat games. But you still get points for doing the artworks yourself. =)

Hasnt seen any of the recent finishers that look like most of what I've done(Minus Shao Khan's, Kintaro's ) O.o

but you are correct hard to find ways to kill, but then again I did limit myself by using the games existing sprite library.

Needs more

It needs more creativity. Some of those weren't very far off from actual fatalities.

It was creative enough thank you.
