to appear, typically 6 to 12 hours.
gevdn u, y, ocwasand Roger Lloyd.
Press L at the start menu to reset your profile. Note the
three rows of scrolling words. Press A to change the word
that appears in the top row. A different word will appear each
time A 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 game.
Enter practice mode and choose Scorpion. Then, highlight any opponent
character on the top row and hold Up + Back for
about five seconds.
Stage selection: In versus or practice mode, press Black 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.

as indicated as follows. Roger Lloyd.
Close: As close as possible to opponent.

Outside Sweep: From sweep, tap Away once more.
Far: Full screen away.
Fatality Distances can be solved by using this trick. Press L
as soon as you see the words "Finish Him" appear. This

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

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: Stronger Sparky combo: Do the normal combo until it the B, Up,
X portion. Instead of those buttons, press B, A.
Do not wait to press A; press it immediately after B.
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 B 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 12-hit combo. Kenny Walker.

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,
B 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. TyrantKnox.
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, Y 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 X(2), Y, Away,
Y. 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 X(3), L,
Y, B, A. 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
In Mantis style, press Up + Y 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.
Go to arcade or practice mode. Select Shujinko with all of his
special moves. When on stage, do the move "Throw Spear"
(Scorpion's Spear move). When you bring your opponent to you,
press the D-pad in the opposite direction of your opponent
+ Y, then immediately do the same pop up after that. You
should have done that only two times. Next, immediately press
Right + B, X(2), L, B(2), L
(the "Big Slice" combo). This should give you a 10-hit
combo and most of the time 49% damage. Blingman0078.
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 + Y) 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.
Ice Clone: Press Down, Away, X.
Freeze Ball: Press Down, Toward, A.
Fatality 1: Press Toward, Away, Down, Toward,
Y (when close).
Fatality 2: Press Away, Down, Toward, Down,
X (when in sweeping range).
Hara Kiri: Press Down, Up, Down, Up,
Hint: Sub-Zero: Better Ice Ball: To create an Ice Ball that freezes longer, press Down,
Right, A(2). This will freeze your opponent a few
seconds longer than normal. XtraCoolPeepS.
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.
Human Cannon Drill: Press Toward(2), Y.
Air Fire Blast: Press Down, Toward, Y.
Surging Blast: Press Down, Away, Y.
Split Flip Kick: Press Down, Away, B.
Find Me: Press Up, Down, X.
Fatality 1: Press Toward, Down(3), X (when
Fatality 2: Press Up, Away, Toward, Up,
Y (when close).
Hara Kiri: Press Down(2), Toward, Up, A.
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, Y(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. Joey Parisi.
Hint: Easy wins: When fighting anyone except for Scorpion, press Up(3),
Down, Up, Down, B(2), Y, X(2).
The opponent cannot block the move and it will take about half
of their life away. Brandon/Gene.
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 L 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,
A) 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,
A). 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 R, 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 (A, A,
Y, Y). 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, B) 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 L(2) during the move so that you will have your
Gauntlets on. If she blocks one of them, press X, Y,
B(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),
A, which is one of Baraka's special moves. Then, quickly
get close to her and press Away, A(2), which should
pop her up into the air. While she is in the air, press A(2),
Y, X(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, B, to pop her
up into the air. While she is in the air, press Y(2), X,
R, A, Away, A. 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 R 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. TyrantKnox.
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. TyrantKnox.
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 R. 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: Walk on air: Go to Outworld and travel to H-5. Walk against the
wall. Shujinko should go through the barrier and walk on air.
Glitch: Headless Liu Kang/Shujinko: Start a match with Liu Kang and Shujinko. Make sure
they are in there primary costumes. Have Liu Kang win. When it
is time to finish off Shujinko, use Liu Kang's second fatality
by pressing Forward(2), Up(2), A at sweeping
distance. Liu Kang will go into hujinko's body. When Shujinko
rips his head off, instead of Liu Kang's head being there, Shujinko
will have no head. justinz.
Glitch: Noob Saibot invisible fatality:
Turn invisible before the fatality. It will show an
invisible Noob Saibot throwing ninja stars.
Glitch: Golden Desert: Fatality At the bottom of the stage, hit the enemy down the
level and do fatality down there. JoKeRzCaRd53.
Glitch: Ying-Yang Island: Opponent fights
from water: In the multi-player arena Yin-Yang Island, uppercut
your opponent (Down + Y) when the arena changes
from bad to good. Your opponent will now be fighting from the
water. If you want to win, make sure that you have attacks that
can reach out there. Josh.
Glitch: Floating weapons: If you have a character that can turn invisible, do
so. Cycle through your fighting styles until you get to your weapon.
If done correctly, you should have floating weapons. If you can
manage to stay invisible, these floating weapons will beat up
your opponent. This does not work on Noob or Smoke. They have
no weapon. Josh.
