Historical Background

In 1991, Mortal Kombat began as a video game on the strength of John Tobias (artist and storywriter), Ed Boon (programmer), Dan Forden (sound designer) and John Vogel (graphics man).

Finishing Moves

Mortal Kombat is cherished by gamers and one of the features it is best known for is Fatality –a feature which encompasses the various techniques adopted in finishing off opponents. Fatalities in Mortal Kombat occur as finishing moves with the basic ones being the techniques which enable the victorious characters to kill their vanquished (and now powerless) opponents in a monstrous fashion. Of course, each character has its predefined and unique technique of finishing off opponents. Put simply, basic Fatalities let victorious Mortal Kombat characters round off encounters by devising these techniques for their defeated opponents.

Another finishing move is Kreate-A-Fatality as featured in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. This lets Mortal Kombat players select their preferences from a host of character-specific violent techniques and create their desired Fatalities.

Frankly, there are various other finishing moves used by players depending on the various Mortal Kombat games. For instance, Mortal Kombat 3 allows a player to use Animalities which is a finishing move that transforms a victorious character into an animal that gruesomely destroys the opponent. Another finishing move, as featured in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, is Brutality which equips the victorious character with an extensive blend of hits for taking an opponent to pieces.

Originally in Mortal Kombat Pit Stage, there’s a finishing move described as Stage Fatalities/Death Traps which enable the victorious character to violently send their opponent off the stage through the use of an uppercut. The opponent eventually finds him/herself in a bed of spikes beneath the stage. Adding to Mortal Kombat’s list of violent finishing moves is Hara-Kiri. This finishing technique, as featured in Mortal Kombat: Deception, is a way of making a losing character resort to suicide.
