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.

@Hailinel:  That has got to be the best FAILtality though... not including the ones in MKvsDC those shouldnt count.

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 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.

1.  Robot Smoke exploding the world
2.  Liu Kang arcade cabinet drop
3.  Quan Chi leg beat

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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 :(
