The Mortal Kombat franchise is one of the best classic video games - known for its gore, savagery, and insane fatalities. In fact, the video games are so notoriously violent that they've caused controversy since the early '90s. The 2011 reboot even got banned in Australia, Germany, and South Korea.
But that's exactly what makes Mortal Kombat awesome: needlessly excessive violence. It's so clearly exaggerated in all of the top Mortal Kombat games that you can't help but laugh. The fact that the most gruesome fatalities are rather difficult to pull off only makes it that much sweeter when you beat the sh*t out of your friend.
The series' creators understood the joy of using those finishing moves, so they started creating hidden fatalities, level-based fatalities, and advanced versions of fatalities in the Mortal Kombat series. For example, there are moves called "brutalities," in which you simply pummel your opponent to smithereens, and "animalities," in which you turn into your inner animal and maul your opponent to death.
With the release of Mortal Kombat X in 2015, things have only gotten gorier. Check out this list of killer moves and vote up the most brutal Mortal Kombat fatalities!
