What is the best fatality of all time?

#2 Posted by President_Barackbar (3433 posts) -

I'm gonna have to go with Liu Kang's arcade machine drop.

#3 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -

Kiss of death, all of them :)

#4 Posted by cire147258369 (62 posts) -

My favorite is Raiden electric explosion :D

#6 Posted by Stonyman65 (2591 posts) -

either Lui Kang's Arcade Machine or Robot Smoke's blowing up the world.  
 
A close 3rd is Melina's kiss of death from MKII.

Having seen Noob's wishbone in this one, I might have to give it to that. 
Possibly Scorpion's "Split Decision." I know, they're new ones, but DAMNED if they aren't awesome.

  Yeah, I support that decision.

Mk 2 Reptile eating your opponents head 

#11 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -
@Hailinel:  That has got to be the best FAILtality though... not including the ones in MKvsDC those shouldnt count.

Aracde drop is up there but to pick something eles i would go with Nitaras fatality from MK:DA  

#13 Posted by cire147258369 (62 posts) -

The new fatality's are look really good

#14 Posted by LetsRockBaby (241 posts) -

Smoke Robot's world explosion one.

I totally agree with this. The arcade machine is hilarious!

PUNCHING A DUDE'S HEAD OFF THREE TIMES. 
If there was DLC for MK9 that had this, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. 
 
Also, Kung Lao's Deadly Alliance one because of the badass way he kicks the hat out of the dude's body. 
 
Also, any Reptile fatality is amazing. ANY. 
 
...alright, fuck it, I have too many I love.

I have to agree with this
#18 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3019 posts) -

I still say Reptile and Mileena are always going to have the best fatalities.  Eating the guy you just beat up after the match is about as good as you can get, isn't it?

Aside from those, Smoke gets points for blowing up the world.

Ditto, dude.  Such great fatalities in this one so far.

@xhavoc86:
I wonder if they intended that to look phallic.
 
Also, not my favorite, I really don't have one, but I'm surprised that no one's mentioned Liu Kang's dragon transformation.

Can't get much better than:

#24 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -
@Slaker117:  That was possibly the worst fatality ever imo, i dont know what they were thinking when they made that. lol
#25 Posted by Euryb (109 posts) -

I've got to go with the classic Sub-Zero head rip from MK1 or the Sub-Zero skeleton pull from MK Deadly Alliance

Uppercutting people on The Pit.

Kabal's "face reveal" for humor, Cyrax's "beat and crush" (MK:DA) for sheer brutality. 
 
And Nightwolf's "disintegration beam" for biggest disappointment. You think he's going to maybe scalp or shoot the opponent full of arrows, but nope.

Most of Melina's    fatalities are probably my favorite
#33 Edited by Sanious (793 posts) -

I dislike most of Liu Kangs fatalities. I never liked the Arcade drop, his fatality in the first game is by far the worst one. But his Dragon Fatality in 2 is probably one of my favorites. 
 
Shang Tsung changing into Kintaro and punching you in half was cool.  
Kombat Tomb is a favorite stage fatality of mine because it's interactive where you can make the person fall from the roof. 
Scorpions slitting your throat and then cutting you in half fatality. 
Kung Lao cutting you in half with his hat. 
Cyrax flying off screen with his wires spinning and then coming back down to chop you into pieces. 
Sektor crushing you. 
 
There are more, I could probably gone on for quite a while, but I won't. 
 
Edit: Not a huge fan of 4, but Reptile jumping onto you and puking acid on your face was pretty cool.

  this one's pretty cool
#35 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

  

  This one is brutal
#36 Posted by NinjaTard (151 posts) -

Can't find a video to show the class but my favorite I think is the old MK2 glitch where Baraka did his Babality but was still moving so he could move over and scissor slice the baby into blood globs. Sick, twisted, but still funny and shocking as hell the first time I saw it.

Quan Chi ripping off your leg and beating you with it.

These are probably my two favorites from the new game. There are a ton of other great ones, and a fair share of disappointments, but I think they did a pretty awesome job with them overall.
#46 Edited by Make_Me_Mad (3019 posts) -

Still think Reptile and Mileena had the best fatalities back when they'd just eat somebody, but Sektor's new fatality, the Scarecrow, looks really good.  Jade's second, the Human Totem, is also pretty nice.  Edit: There it is!

I'm sad they don't have the kiss of death fatalities in this game...very sad indeed. Kiss of death is one oft he most iconic fatalities in my opinion...been there since MK1 :(
