Note: A good portion of key chests need Meditation time in order
to appear, typically 6 to 12 hours.
and Roger Lloyd.
Menu mystery: Press L1 at the start menu to reset your profile.
Note the three rows of scrolling words. Press X to change
the word that appears in the top row. A different word will appear
each time X is pressed. The word in the middle row seems
to be random name of a realm each time the menu is entered. The
word in the bottom row is always "Deception". At this
time, no known effect has been noticed by doing this, but it may
be related to the rumored "Super Unlockables" in the
Random selection: Enter practice mode and choose Scorpion. Then, highlight
any opponent character on the top row and hold Up + Select
for about five seconds.
Stage selection: In versus or practice mode, press R1 at the
character selection screen to choose your battle stage. David Bierhaus.
Alternate costumes: Press Start to choose your character to use
their alternate costumes. Note: You may first need to unlock the
costume in the Krypt. David Bierhaus.
Note: Some fighters' alternate costumes can only be unlocked by
fighting (and defeating) them in Konquest mode. Before you fight
Li Mei (Orderrealm A6), Raiden (Edenia F3) and Tanya (Outworld
C2 or C3), make sure you have unlocked them in the Krypt before
commencing with these battles, as you will not get the keys to
their alternate costumes if they are still locked. Bad_Boy_Jax.
Hint: Fatality distances: Some fatalities must be done at a specific distance,
as indicated as follows. Roger Lloyd.
Close: As close as possible to opponent
Sweep: From close, tap Away(2).
Outside Sweep: From sweep, tap Away once more
Far: Full screen away
Fatality Distances can be solved by using this trick. Press L1
as soon as you see the words "Finish Him" appear. This
trick was used also in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance as
well. It helps when you are trying to do your fatality. Pete Morris.
Hint: Hotaru: After you have been captured and become an old man,
or anytime after you have finished Konquest mode, go to Orderrealm,
H-1. There a long bridge, and when it forks, take the fork until
you can go no further. Meditate until the chest appears. Note:
Whenever Meditation is used, always give it a full day for the
chest to appear. Oroichi Diamon.
Hint: Liu Kang: Successfully complete Konquest mode. After the credits,
go back into Konquest mode and go to Edenia. One you have reached
Edenia, go towards G-8. It is a small mountain path that leads
to a tent. Meditate behind the tent until it is Thursday night
at 11 p.m. and wait until 12 midnight. A chest should appear,
now that it is 12 a.m. Friday morning. Open it, and the key to
Tomb OT will be yours, which unlocks Liu Kang. Oroichi Diamon
Hint: Lui Kang's alternate costume: Go to Edenia H-5. It can only be found at 12 p.m. on
the first of each month. Use R2 to auto target a full list
of Koffins to find it. Steven Mishler.
Hint: Mocap: In Orderrealm, there is a person who walks in the place
near the most outer circle of the city. He is wearing motion capture
clothes (used in movie and game production to create computerized
characters). The costume has dots all over a blue background and
covers everything except for his face. You cannot talk to him,
but if you punch him he drops a key for a fighting style video.
Ali RIZA YEGEN.
Hint: Nightwolf: Easy win: Get as far back from your opponent as possible and
use Spirit Arrow. If your opponent attempts to block it, quickly
use Lightning from above. Keep on doing this. When the opponent
comes close to you, use Rhino Charge to send them flying back.
If the opponent happens to shoot something at you, use Reflector
and bounce it back at them. You can do this for a long time, and
if done correctly you should have a flawless victory every time.
Hint: Raiden: After you finish Konquest mode, go to the Orderrealm,
and go to E-3. Face Raiden to earn the key. You must have already
finished Konquest mode or he will give you nothing but money.
Hint: Raiden: Stronger Sparky combo: Do the normal combo until it the Circle, Up,
Square portion. Instead of those buttons, press Circle,
X. Do not wait to press X; press it immediately
after Circle. This will make your opponent bounce in the
air, allowing you to continue your combo. When your opponent is
at the same level as Raiden's head, press Circle as many
times as possible. This will give you a 12-hit combo and sometimes
40% damage. You can use this on Johnny Cage when you must do a
Go to the following locations to unlock all of Shujinko's moves:
Torpedo: Directly in front of Edenia Portal
Bicycle Kick: Chaosrealm G-4 between 12 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Sunday
Ermac Slam: Edenia C-8 Wednesday at 5 p.m.
Freeze: Orderrealm F-5 at 11 a.m. on Wednesday (in building)
Foot Grab: Edenia D-8 at 2 to 3 a.m. on Monday (behind house)
Kobra Fist: Edenia G-6 (behind building)
Scorpion Spear: Edenia A-1 (Defeat Scorpion)
Flip Kick: Orderrealm E-1 at 11 a.m.
Fatality 1: Outword C-8 (in cave)
Fatality 2: Orderrealm D-4 at 9 a.m.
Hint: Shujinko: Greater side: When you face your opponent and do not like the side
that your character is on, press the following to get on the other
side safely while doing damage to your opponent. Press Up,
Circle in the Mantis style. While in the air, quickly do
Sub-Zero's Freeze move. At this time, your opponent should be
up in the air. Then, if you froze your opponent high enough into
the air, do Li Mei's Sliding Grab Kick. Shujinko should be able
to slide under your opponent. Once you get to the other side,
you should have enough time to pull off a big combo, Scorpion's
Spear, or Liu Kang's Bicycle Kick.
Hint: Shujinko: Power combos: Note: You must have all or most of Shujinko's moves.
First, make sure you are in Mantis. To start, use Sub-Zero's Freeze
move to get a free shot in. While your opponent is frozen, press
Away, Triangle for a pop-up attack. While in the
air, do Scorpion's Spear. At this time, your opponent has hit
the ground and the Spear has hit him, allowing you to continue
the combo. Once you bring him toward you, press Square(2),
Triangle, Away, Triangle. This should pop
up your opponent in the air again. Next, do Ermac's Telekinetic
Slam. Your opponent should bounce back to you. Before he hits
the ground, press Square(3), L1, Triangle,
Circle, X. After doing this, you should have performed
an unseen combo which should give you 15 hits and about 35% damage.
The second way to do this is as follows. The second combo is the
same as the first, except instead of doing the Telekinetic Slam,
do Liu Kang's Bicycle Kick. This would make it also 15 hits and
about 35% damage. If you are lucky enough, when on a death trap
level, the Bicycle Kick could put them in the trap and kill them.
In Mantis style, press Up + Triangle for the pop
up, then execute Lei Mei's flip kick, and quickly do Lu Kang's
Bicycle Kick afterwards for a 41% damage combo. Sol Warlox.
Get all of Shujinko's powers. After that, enter practice mode
and do the following things. Start on Mantis mode. Use Shujinko's
Spear to bring your opponent close to you. Then, use the move
Mantis Takes Prey (Right or Left + Triangle)
twice only. While in the air use the Zero combo. It should be
a 11-hit combo with 55% damage. Blingman0078.
Hint: Sindel: In Konquest mode, go to the Netherrealm and head out
to D-1. It should be a coliseum with lots of holes. Go straight
back to the rock wall and meditate until the treasure chest appears.
Note: Whenever Meditation is used, always give it a full day for
the chest to appear. Oroichi Diamon.
Hint: Tayna: In Outworldrealm, go to the ice cave at A-3. There
should be a wall blocking your path inside. Meditate, and the
chest will appear in front of the wall after a short time. Note:
Whenever Meditation is used, always give it a full day for the
chest to appear. Oroichi Diamon.
Hint: Easy fatalities: Go to a chess match. Once there and fighting, kill
the opponent's leader with whoever you want to do the fatality
with. If you defeat him pr her, a fatality will automatically
happen. Andrew Polenberg.
Go to practice or arcade mode and pick Shujinko. Then, go to the
Slaughter House level. When the match starts, knock your opponent
down into the basement of the Slaughter House. Next, get on your
opponent's side so that you are moving them back toward the death
trap. Make sure not to push them all the way back. Next, pop them
up into the air with Away, Triangle(2). Then, while
in the air, do Liu Kang's Bicycle Kick. The last kick should send
your opponent flying through the air and into the death trap.
Once your opponent has been diced up into little pieces of flesh,
it should say under your name. 13 Hits, 127% damage. You should
have two hits from the pop-ups and ten from the bicycle kick making
that 27% damage, and one from the death trap, which automatically
kills your opponent and gives you 100% damage. Note: You must
have Liu Kang's Bicycle Kick from Konquest mode.
Hint: Easy wins: When fighting anyone except for Scorpion, press Up(3),
Down, Up, Down, Circle(2), Triangle,
Square(2). The opponent cannot block the move and it will
take about half of their life away. Brandon/Gene.
Hint: Grabbing weapons: Go to Kombat mode then go to a level with a weapon.
Then, press L2 near the weapon to pick it up. There will
be a green square around the object to indicate that it is a weapon.
Hint: Defeating Johnny Cage: Successfully complete the game and get every Shujinko
fight move. Go to Outworld and do a 12-hit combo on Johnny Cage.
With Shujinko, do this combo in Mantis Style: press Square(2),
Triangle, L1, Forward(2), Circle.
You will have a 12-hit combo (four hits from the combo and eight
from the Bicycle Kick). a.loveridge.
Hint: Defeating Onaga: One way to defeat Onaga is to get far away from him.
He will either do a stomp attack or a fireball. Jump when he does
the stomp and just evade the fireball. After a short time he will
come after you. If you have any strong attacks, get ready. When
he comes after you, you can usually get in a good shot or two.
After hitting him, jump back quickly to avoid the punches or being
grabbed. Try to stay close to the statues, but be careful. Shujinko's
(Liu Kang's) Bicycle Kick works very well when he comes after
you, and use sword attacks when he gets close. After awhile of
playing, you can learn his patterns and better prepare yourself.
The Dragon King's arena is bordered evenly by all six pieces of
the Kamidougu. The most effective way above all to defeat Onaga
with any character is to back away from him, leaping over any
ground attacks or projectiles he uses, then lure him towards the
edge. Collecting a Kamidougu piece will stun Onaga for two seconds
and even subtract from his health. Take advantage of this opportunity
by unleashing your character's longest and most damaging combo,
then back away when finished. Repeat this process using another
Kamidougu icon. The most strategic way to do this is to aim for
a back-to-back win, preserving three Kamidougu pieces for round
one and the other three for round two. Andy L.
If you use Liu Kang against the Dragon King, all of Liu Kang's
attacks will do double damage. Ithryui2.
Destroy all Kamidogos on round one. Use your character's longest
combo from the first stance to the last stance, which is the weapon.
Immediately after finishing your combo, press L1 and start
the combo again. Repeat this combo until Onaga has been defeated.
Hint: Defeating Scorpion: When fighting Scorpion at the end of the game, continually
strafe around him to dodge his specials, then attack when he has
finished an attack of his own and is vulnerable. Also, try to
save your Breakers, but use them when necessary. Velement.
The following trick is a very easy way to defeat the CPU, especially
Scorpion for Shujinko's Spear move. Confront Scorpion and exit
until you can fight him as Baraka. Do the "Mutant Blades"
move and the "Chop Chop Blades" move every time he gets
back up. You may need to switch up the rotation of the two specials,
but the "Mutant Blades" move (Forward, Forward,
X) works most of the time when he is just getting back
up. When you think he is going to attack at close range, then
use the "Chop Chop Blades" move (Down, Up,
X). Save the game, go to the difficulty option, and set
it on the easiest. This works because he is constantly healingm
and if he hits you, he takes 300% damage. Ryan Stoddard.
Hint: Kolach Awakes: After you finished Konquest mode, go back to the Netherrealm.
Before you move, press R1, which brings up a map of the
realm. Go to the center of the realm to where you did the mission
for Scorpion with catching Quan Chi. From there, go right until
you see another platform smaller then the one in the center. You
will see three people: Kabal, Kobra, and Kira. If you defeat them
all, you will get a reward. When you fight Kabal, you will fight
him in Dark Kombat. Make sure you get Kenshi as a good selection.
Use his weapon and keep using his four hit combo (X, X,
Triangle, Triangle). Then, fight Kobra. He is difficult
to defeat. Each time he hits, you will lose one third or one half
of your health. Try to use a long combo and dodge as much as you
can. Try using Shujinko. When the match starts, let him attack
you first, but make sure to dodge him and kick him in the air
twice (Up, Circle) before he falls to the ground.
Do his Hardcore combo listed under the Mantis style of fighting.
After you have finished the combo, you should have gotten at least
nine or ten hits in on him. Once you have killed him, go on to
Kira. She is the most difficult of all of them. When you fight
her, you are bleeding to death and she likes to block frequently.
Make sure you get Baraka, Darrius, or Ashrah as a selection. If
you are Darrius and the match starts, do your Tricky Kick. When
you hit her, press L1(2) during the move so that you will
have your Gauntlets on. If she blocks one of them, press Square,
Triangle, Circle(3). This should stun her for awhile
and allow you to get in another Tricky Kick. Do this until you
kill her. If you are Baraka, hit her as soon as the match starts
with Toward(2), X, which is one of Baraka's special
moves. Then, quickly get close to her and press Away, X(2),
which should pop her up into the air. While she is in the air,
press X(2), Triangle, Square(2). This should
hit her about six or seven times. Repeat this to defeat her. If
you are Ashrah, quickly dodge one of her attacks then press, Up,
Circle, to pop her up into the air. While she is in the
air, press Triangle(2), Square, R1, X,
Away, X. You will hit her about seven or eight times.
Keep doing this until you defeat her. Once you have defeated Kabal,
Kobra, and Kira, a portal will open, similar to the portal when
you open it with a Kamidogu. Go through the portal and you should
be back at the beginning of the realm. You should also see a chest
with gold trim. Open it to get your reward. Note: All chests with
gold trim have something to do with the characters. However, this
chest is different from all the others. All your hard work has
paid off with 1,000 Onyx Koins.
Hint: Getting Koins: In Konquest mode, many characters will ask you to do
missions for them, usually fetch-type tasks. Completing these
missions usually will result in a good sum of Koins. Roger Lloyd.
In Konquest mode, use Punching as a tool to get different responses
from characters. For example, Mocap in Chaosrealm will say "Ow
my balls". Also, punching certain characters will make them
drop Koins. Roger Lloyd.
In Konquest mode, characters that appear with a puff of smoke
will hand over a very large sum of Koins. For example, Motaro
will give you 1200 Gold Koins. Roger Lloyd.
If you have already completed Konquest mode, unlocked the graves
in the Krypt with everything you have collected, and there are
no more Koins to get in Konquest, create a new profile. Get all
the Koins you need. Then, start a two player versus game. Load
both profiles and press R1 to wager the desired Koins.
You now no longer have any use for the second profile. Delete
it, and continue. matt giannopoulos.
Go to section E-8 in the Netherrealm. You will see a small cave
with the remains of a skeleton on the ground. At about 10 p.m.,
a red skeleton will appear. Talk to him, and he will say, "Here,
take this" and give you 1,000 Onyx Koins. thatHMLSguy.
When you begin the game, you may find a boy who wants you to scare
his uncle. In this area, on Friday at 10:30 to 11:00 a.m., on
the outside of the farthest cottage in the small area, a centaur
will appear (from the movie). Talk to him and he will give you
1000 Ruby Koins. ZMDECKER24.
In Konquest mode, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in section A-8,
you can talk to Sonya Blade. She will give you 800 Ruby Koins.
Hint: Double death: Start versus mode with a friend. Select Falling Cliffs
as your area of Kombat. Then, choose any two characters. Let the
match begin. You will soon see that it is a circular platform,
and that layers around the edges will begin to fall off every
twenty to thirty seconds. Make sure that you and your friend are
on a layer of an edge that will break off the platform. Once it
breaks off, both characters will fall off the platform (just like
when your punch or kick someone off). You will see both of the
characters land on stone spikes. The one with the least health
will lose the match, but both of your health bars will go down
to 0. Also, If your both fall off the same time and have full
health, player one will always be the winner of that match.
Hint: Netherrealm language: The Netherrealm people talk backwards. To hear what
they say, record the voices and play them in reverse. A few examples
of what they say are: "Beware! Dimashi is the Dragon King!",
"I am talking backwards, sucky isn't it?", "There
are many realms", and "It is said that John Vogal is
a genius". Rap234.
Hint: Ashrah puzzle fighter: Start a puzzle match with any character. At the loading
screen, you will see Ashrah as a puzzle fighter fighting Ermac,
but she is not selectable as a character in puzzle mode.
Hint: Hotaru puzzle fighter: Begin a puzzle match with any character. During the
loading screen, you should see Scorpion fighting Hotaru in a puzzle
match. Notice that Hotaru is not a selectable character for puzzle
Hint: Chess Kombat: Easy kills: Set up a Trap somewhere on your side of the board.
When the game starts and it is your turn, use the Teleport Square
to teleport your opponent's Champion onto the square with a trap.
They will be instantly killed. On your next turn, move one of
your Grunts onto the square with the trap (your traps do not effect
your own team). On your following turn, use the Exchange Spell
and switch your Grunt with your opponents other Champion. Kastro187420.
Hint: Easy stage fatalities: Select any character that has a teleport move that
sends you behind your opponent (for example, Scorpion and Raiden).
Back all the way up next to where you perform the stage fatality.
When your opponent gets close to you, teleport behind them and
upper cut them. If they were close enough to the fatality area,
this will cause them to be killed by whatever the fatality of
that stage is. Kastro187420.
Hint: See Ermac early: When you first start Konquest mode, finish the first
Bo Ri Cho training for Shujinko. Go to the park across the street.
You should quickly see Ermac run across the opening of the park.
He will not appear again until later in the game. RhysJ824.
Hint: See Sub-Zero early: In Konquest mode, once you have finished your first
training with Master Bo' Rai Cho, go left. You will see two students
fighting and their teacher. Next to the tree behind them, you
can see Sub-Zero. If you get close to him, he will run and disappear
behind the tree. Vara-sama.
Hint: See old characters: Stay in the Krypt and just move around for about ten
minutes. You will see old characters such as Goro and Sheeva.
Start a fight with any character versus any character in two player
mode, and choose the Portal arena by pressing R1. When
the fight begins, you can see the destiny pillars featuring characters
from Mortal Kombat 3. Some of them are Stryker, Liu Kang
, Motaro, Shao Kahn, Smoke, Sindel , Shang Tsung, Sub-Zero, Sonya,
etc. Note: There are Master , Novice and Warrior destinies. murtaza ali.
Go to the Dark Prison stage. Knock the other fighter to the lower
level. In the cells, you will see characters from other Mortal
Kombat games, such as Goro, Jax, and others. Death12000.
Go to the Dead Pool Arena. Look around to find a balcony. There
is a person who looks just like Jarek from Mortal Kombat 4
and Mortal Kombat: Gold standing there watching the fight.
In Konquest mode,walk near forests and trees. If you look very
carefully, you will see Mortal Kombat characters such as
Ermac and Noob running through the woods. Tyler Hamant.
When you go to Earthrealm village for Bo Rai Cho third training,
go to the bridge with the spilled melons. Look to the right to
see Jarek running from the single tree to the hedge. Adryan Ortiz.
Glitch: Two Kiras: You must be half-way through Konquest mode to see this.
When you are in Earthrealm and are out of the village and into
the field , there will be some forests somewhere. Go to them after
6:00 p.m. If you go before that time, you will not see her. Go
to a certain one (she sometimes appears somewhere else) and wait.
You will soon see her just standing there, doing nothing. Then,
go to the Chaosrealm and look in the graveyard. She will be walking
around talking to herself because she does not know her identity.
Glitch: Two Rains, two Jades, one Rain:
In Konquest mode, in Edenia, find Rain. He will give
you a mission to find a cave. Do as he says and find the cave
at G-8. Once you are there, you will see a tent with Jade and
two bodyguards on each side of her. She will reward you if you
tell Rain about the cave so that she can ambush him. Go back to
the place where you found Rain. Tell him about the cave and he
will pay you about 300 to 600 Koins. Before he runs off to the
cave, quickly punch him. This will make him stay in the same place
instead of running to the cave. Then, go back to the cave where
Jade is located. You will see Jade outside of the cave, with Rain
on the ground by her side. Talk to her, and she will reward you.
Then, go back to the tent inside of the cave, and she will be
inside. Then go, to where you found Rain. He will not be there.
Note: Once you finish the cave mission try to get a good angle
so you can see the Jade next to Rain and the Jade at the tent
at the same time.
Glitch: Lui Kang passes through wall: Go to Edenia. Go to where Lui Kang is found during
the night. Go to the left of the building and you can go behind
it. Wait until about 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. You should see him
pass through the wall. He will walk into the rock face, then return
and go through the wall again. Also you will see another person
walk through it at 10:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m. blake and joe.
Glitch: See Noob or Smoke walk away: First, get Noob - Smoke in Konquest mode. Then, go
to Kombat and to versus. Keep tapping L1 and let someone
hit you. You will see Smoke or Noob walk very far away. Make sure
to turn and press Down or Up to see it. Duane Branson.
Glitch: Defeating the Dragon King: Select a fast character. You can lock up the Dragon
King and get an easy win. It helps to get a Kamidogo, then lock
him up. This can also save some time, and even though he blocks
a lot of your attacks, if you look close it does do some damage.
Glitch: Sapphire Koins: After you complete Konquest mode, go to Orderrealm
and find Movado walking around the central pyramid. He is dressed
in all black. Complete his mission to get 500 Sapphire Koins.
You will also get 500 Sapphire Koins each additional time you
speak to him. -king scorpion-.
Glitch: Bypass Netherrealm bridge guard
before completing Konquest mode: Take Netherrealm Kamidogu to the Nexus, then return
to Netherrealmand. Push Ermac all the way to the bridge. Push
him into the bridge guard. You can now run past the guard or enter
training with Ermac then quit training, and be on the other side
of the bridge. Steve.
Glitch: Invisible fatality: Unlock the Golden Desert stage. At the start of the
fight, knock the victim over the right side of the edge. Next,
push the victim to the right wall and keep him or her there and
them. When it says "Finish Him/Her", do the person's
fatality and it will show the person killing air, while the victim
is behind him, acting like if it is happening to him or her. Note:
Try using Sub-Zero's second fatality. Michaelgo24.
Glitch: Sliding characters: Play in Versus mode with two players on the Courtyard
level. Have one player go over to the corner, with the other player
following. Then, have the following player line up with the side
of the level. Wait about one second. You should see both players
just start sliding along the level side, out of camera view. To
return to normal, have one player hit the other. shujinco.
