How to Unlock Fatalities in Mortal Kombat 1

Every main Mortal Kombat 1 character has two Fatalities each to use, but only one will be shown to players under the moves list at the start. One option to reveal the second Fatality is to level up the character until the move unlocks by playing various modes with the character.

However, players can simply perform the hidden Fatality if they already know the combo. Unlocking through leveling up will just add it to the Fatalities tab for easy reference.

How to Perform Fatalities in Mortal Kombat 1

Fatalities can be performed at the end of the match, when the narrator says “Finish Him/Her” alongside the corresponding text on screen. Then players will have to stand at a close, mid, or far distance from their opponents and input a specific combo for the move. Here are the controls for every platform:

KameoR1RRB

Done correctly, the UI will disappear and the move will be performed. Players can also buy Easy Fatality Tokens from the in-game premium store with Dragon Krystals. The tokens can be activated at the end of the match and by pressing Front Kick + Block for main fighters, and holding Block + Front Punch for Kameo fighters.
