Defeating Goro and Shang Tsung
Play as Scorpion and harpoon Goro (Away, Away,
Low Punch) immediately following an uppercut (Away
+ Low Punch). Repeat this technique to defeat Goro and
face Shang Tsung. Use the same technique to defeat him.
Fight against Reptile
Look for shadows to appear across the moon in The Pit
stage. If this happens, do the following steps. Do not press Block
during the match. Have a Double Flawless victory against your
opponent and finish him or her with a fatality. You will then
fight Reptile. If you lose, you will have to do the steps again.
If you win, you will get 10,000,000 points. Note: This cannot
be done using Scorpion or Sonya on v3.0 machines because you must
press Block to do their fatality. However on v4.0 machines
you can play as Scorpion and Sonya because you can do their fatality
by using Block. However you can only press Block
when you are doing their fatality on those machines.
Fight Goro without getting hurt
On the stage before Goro pops out, back yourself into
a corner. Allow your opponent to follow you there, then defeat
them without using your fatality. Continue to hold Away
and you should be walking backwards in place with your back in
the corner. As Goro appears, continue holding Away. Immediately
after Goro leans back to let out his scream, press Up +
Away to backflip, then release the Joystick so that
it goes back to its neutral position. Your character should backflip,
then rise up and out of the screen leaving just your shadow on
the playing field. You are now invincible when fighting Goro.
