    Why Was Shinnok So Easy ?

    am i the only one who thinks Shinnok was the easiest boss ever!!!
    I mean all the other bosses Shang Tsung ,Shao Kahn, Onaga etc were at least a challenge at first but Shinnok was just like fightin another character

    Wrong forum dude, this needs to be in the classic kombat forum.

    I always thought that he was easy, but to me MK4 is probably the easiest in the series. Goro could be killed with one move

    -Never used all his skills he could use (what was with that anyway???)
    -Never had any real special moves
    -Was as strong as a normal fighter
    -Was far too predictable (he just ran up and kicked/punched you)
    -Was too fond of using his staff (which was weak).

    Long story short... He was just too easy.
    Sig in reconstruction...


    Seriously, national sterotypes suck badly....

    Then again, being "emo" wasn't originally about being depressed all the time or wearing black, since "depression" isn't the only emotion. And nto all gays sound 'camp'. >_<

    But never mind that crap, my vampire dragon is awesome isn't it?

    he's simple as pie. i get tired of constantly beating him and goro with just flipkicks. MK4 is the only one ive ever beaten--aside from easy Deception.

    Yes, he was easy. Well I liked MK4, but I would have preferred having it for the N64 than for the PS. Of course I didn't get the game until like 3 years ago lol. I've beaten MK, MK2 (Well me and my cousin took turns, but I beat Shao Kahn :D), MK3, MK4, MK: DA and MK: D. MK: DA was the first fighting game that I have beat the game with all the characters, then I did it with MK 4 and MK: D. Now any fighting game I get I take the time to beat the game with all the characters, like Soul Calibur 2 and 3.
    I am IMAGE!

    MK Trilogy is hard at times but i beat it once with Kintaro and got all the way to Shao Kahn when I went freeze-krazy as MK3 subzero (freeze>uppercut, freeze>uppercut, etc)

    Like others have said, He was just a normal character, and selectable at that, so he couldn't be overpowered or we as human players could have taken advantage of that.

    It's the same with Deadly Alliance. Tsung and Chi are just regular characters so the difficulty just isn't there. The only thing that makes them harder to beat is an increase in AI when you fight them.

    holy crap in a hat you're 100% right! but his one low-kick grab move was alittle more powerful than others. then again, so was Reptile's neck-snap. but Shinnok's came in 2 parts

    Yeh Shinnok was extremely easy, especially with those throwable skulls in the arena. However I actually had an easier time fighting MK1 Shang Tsung than Shinnok. They are both easy.

    Re: Why Was Shinnok So Easy ?

    Lol. It took me much more time to defeat Goro than the Jester Shinnok.
    I guess he should have had better special moves, not all fighters moves. That sucked

    Shinnok was the easiest boss ever for me to defeat. Besides that he stole Shang Tsung's morphing powers. That sucks.

    You wanna with me? Okay. You wanna play rough? Okay. SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND!

    Re: Why Was Shinnok So Easy ?

    Yeah, I thought that Shinnok was one of the easiest bosses ever in MK. I remember being introduced to Mortal Kombat through MK4 and after I beat Shinnok I was wondering why it was so big with such a disappointing boss. Took me a while to get into MK after that now that I think about it...

    He was easy because it was Mortal Kombat 4. There.

    Shinnok was eazy because he didn't spend enough time training. He was too busy stylin' with that pimpin' outfit, dawg.

    Pimpin' ain't easy.

    Shinnok must shop at the same sunglasses store as Cage.
