Mortal Kombat X - Cassie Cage Variations, Fatalities and Brutalities

Posted in mortal kombat

Cassie Cage makes her debut to the Mortal Kombat series in MKX. She's the daughter of the two classic characters: Johnny Cage and Sonya Cage, both of whom are also included in MKX. Cassie is a fast character that's able to use her sidearm as a weapon and call in missile attacks in certain variations.

Taking after her father Johnny, Cassie Cage is an overly confident and cocky opponent. For the most part these dispositions raise their head during her pre-match dialogue with other characters, but it's during her fatality moves and in certain signature variations that we see the best of Cassie. One such example is The American Way special move from the Spec Ops variation, which is nothing more than a taunt to distract and annoy the player rather than cause any damage.

Her core moves consist of a lightning fast gun shot which is almost unblockable and two signature kick moves. The first of these kicks is called the Glow Kick whereby Cassie swoops up into the air and back down again, forming a humpback shape in the air. This move is an obvious combo move because it covers a good proportion of the screen. The second kick is more of a defensive move that causes Cassie to backflip away from the opponent rather than towards them.

The move list on this page uses numbers to illustrate controller buttons on the Playstation and Xbox. The image below shows how each number relates to a button on each console:

Spec Ops

Cassie gains a missile attack and a unique taunt. This is the variation to choose if you really want to rub salt into the wound of an annoying opponent.
