How To Perform The Secret Fatalities For All Mortal Kombat 1 Kharacters

A handy guide to every input you need

Every fighter in MK1 has two fatalities. The game hides the input for the second fatality until you unlock it, by way of progressing the mastery track for a character.

There is nothing stopping you from performing this fatality however – provided you know the input, of course!

Now, because buttons are different across each console platform, here is a handy guide to what I mean when I say ‘Push Button 1’:

  • Button 1 means:
    PS5: Square / Xbox Series X|S: X / Nintendo Switch: Y
  • Button 2 means:
    PS5: Triangle / Xbox Series X|S: Y / Nintendo Switch: X
  • Button 3 means:
    PS5: X / Xbox Series X|S: A / Nintendo Switch: B
  • Button 4 means:
    PS5: Circle / Xbox Series X|S: B / Nintendo Switch: A
  • Button 5 means:
    PS5: R1 / Xbox Series X|S: RB / Nintendo Switch: R
  • Button 6 means:
    PS5: R2 / Xbox Series X|S: RT / Nintendo Switch: ZR

Phew, now that looks a bit complicated. But it’s simple! If I say that an input is ‘Back, Forward, Back, 1′  just think of what console you are using, and…

  • PS5: ‘Back, Forward, Back, Square’
  • Xbox Series X|S: ‘Back, Forward, Back, X’
  • Nintendo Switch: ‘Back, Forward, Back, Y’

Still with me? Good! Let’s learn some new Fatalities!
