This is what I feared most... All those cut-in-half fatalities taking over again...
Still wanna see more elemental, magical, shamanic, necromantic, summon creatures and demons, shapeshifting, special power, kiss of deaths, non-bloody-but-very-stomach-turning, cruel and disease/poisonous fatalities... Too bad they probably all involve cutting in half again...
Reptile's fatality is the worst by far for me personally, didn't like anything about it. I've seen Happy Tree Friends doing more horrid fatalities...
Reptile eating the brain would have put it at #1 as my fav fatality but it is just like Kung Laos fatality. Its dumb how its also a perfect vertical slice. Wasnt a fan of Kitanas x ray either. Its just another x ray focused on the head.
heres a fatality idea i sketched out years ago for classic reptile, the endings a bit on the goofy cartoony side but this was done back when MK9 was coming out but i think the initial idea is still good minus throwing the brain in the air and swallowing it in one gulp lol
1. Reptile reaches under his mask and flips his hood back revealing his true form
2. He turns round and spews toxic acid on the ground behind himself
3. He turns back to the opponent and grabs them
4. he swings the opponent out over the pool of acid kicking and screaming
5. he slowly begins to dip them feet first in the acid as they scream
6. He keeps dipping them until just the head is left, then turns the head over
7.Reptile then whips out his lizard tongue stabbing it through the neck of the head
8.He pulls the brain out and tosses it into the air
9. he opens his mouth wide as the brain falls back down, and swallows it in one
10. he raises the brainless head for a victory pose
Apart from the clean slice not making sense, what the hell is the point of spitting acid on the guy's face if you're just going to cut his head open right after? The two halves of the fatality have absolutely nothing to do with one another.
I would have much, much preferred it if Reptile just waited for the acid to chew through their entire head, and then spit more acid down the guy's throat to devour them from the inside.
Reptiles fatality has lazy written all over it. All the cool over the top fatalities with extra little details like scorpions where it shows the heart dangling are for the "important" characters like Scorpion, subzero, etc. Everyone else gets generic "slice point" fatalities.
