Mortal Kombat 11 - Fatalities List for All Characters

Posted in mortal kombat

Every character in Mortal Kombat 11 has two Fatality moves that can be used to conclude a match with a cinematically gruesome finishing move. In this guide you'll learn how to unlock and perform ALL of the games fatalities for each of the characters.

Anyone who has ever played Mortal Kombat will know exactly what Fatalities are all about. Dating back to the very roots of the series, these secret finishing moves were perfect for rubbing salt into your enemies wounds at the end of a victory. Finishing moves were enough to make Mortal Kombat one of the most violent video games of the nineties. Whether it was Kano's heart ripping move, Scorpions fire breathing or Liu Kang's awesome dragon eating move, they have been (and probably always will be) an essential part of Mortal Kombat.

Just like in MKX, every character in MK11 has one Fatality unlocked by default and a second secret Fatality that's unlocked via RnG rewards or by knowing and performing the move during a match. By using the list below, you'll be able to perform each of the moves for each of the characters and automatically unlock the second move for free.

Update: The fatality list is now complete with every characters first and second fatality. Enjoy!

How to use a Fatality

Remember, Fatalities are finishing moves so they must be used at the end of a match by the winning player. Simply wait for the prompt that says "Finish him/her" and enter the move as described below. Each move has a valid range - make sure you're within the distance noted below to perform the move correctly. Some require you to be close to the opponent whilst others require a half screen of space.

Console reference

The Nintendo Switch controller is the opposite of Xbox - the buttons are swapped e.g. Y (on Xbox) is X on Switch, A (on Xbox) is B on Switch. If you're using a PC controller, it's likely that you're using the Microsoft Xbox standard so follow the Xbox sequence.
