Sorry didnt wanna make another topic but why doesnt Cage put the award on KRATOS head in his fatality? It does that to everyone but Kratos...
Also when Ermac does his second fatality on Kratos, Kratos isnt even scared like the others although he is small .lol
What made that fatality horrible wasn't that she didn't take off her mask.
It was that the body looked like a cartoon when it was exploding.
It was just flat-out terrible, along with 99% of the MKvsDC fatalities.
Nah, compared to the Spine Rip (Sub-Zero), Toasty (Scorpion), Kiss Of Death (Sonya), Electric head explosion (Raiden), Uppercut decapitation (Johnny Cage) and Heart Ripper (Kano), the Cartwheel Uppercut sucks and PALES in comparison.
The best thing that they did with the Cartwheel Uppercut was to make it an X-Ray move in MK9.
Beyond that, it's "MEH," at best.
Unless you perform that fatality in the Pit stage...Why they brought that back in MK2 without activating the stage fatalities with it (or at the very least the Dead Pool stage) is beyond me. If I'm not mistaken, they also made it a special move in MK vs DCU. I don't mind it being a special move, because I feel that it's more practical as such instead of a fatality.
I believe Liu Kang was originally given that fatality because of the fact that he's a Shaolin Monk, and as such shuns gratuitous violence, and only a non-violent fatality would be considered "in character" for him. I don't remember how much backlash Midway received from fans over that fatality, or if it was a contributing factor in creating his more famous Dragon fatality.
I don't know why they brought it back for MKII, if it wasn't really liked during MK1.
I don't mind it being a special move or even X-Ray move like in MK9.
The same goes for Mileena's sai stab fatality.
Using both of those fatalities as X-Rays in MK9 are the best thing that NRS has ever done with them.
Both are very powerful, but not fatality-worthy.
I could see his fatality being toned down due to violence, but then I don't understand why Midway didn't give him something like his MK3 fatality?
That would have been better in MK1 than his cartwheel kick fatality, IMO.
And before anyone asks, I DID like Quan Chi's neck stretch fatality. It proves that you can have a fatality with no blood and still be cool ;-) I don't like them, they were completely stupid. I also don't count guest characters because I just don't. But if someone kinda gets where I'm trying to head, it'd probably make more sense than some lists that I've seen. And I know there's a heck of a lot of other ones that are really bad, such as Motaro's Trilogy fatality... but some of them have a reason to suck... And I can kinda give a reason why if anyone wants me to.
