  • Play as Cyber Sub-Zero

    Successfully complete Chapter 13 in Story mode to unlock Cyber Sub-Zero.

  • Play as Quan Chi

    Successfully complete Chapter 16 in Story mode to unlock Quan Chi.

  • Mileena's third alternate costume

    Successfully complete Challenge Tower Level 300 to unlock Mileena's Fleshpit costume and get the "Best...Alternate...Ever!" achievement. Note: If you have trouble completing the 300th challenge, return to the tower, and you can skip the final challenge. You will still unlock the Fleshpit costume.

  • Additional color schemes

    At the character selection screen, highlight a character and press Start. Then, press A for the original Arcade version color scheme. Press Start again for the alternate color scheme.

  • Classic music

    At the "Arena Select" screen in Versus mode, press Start instead of A to choose an arena. If done correctly, you will hear Shao Khan laugh. During the fight, that arena's music will be replaced with a song from a previous Mortal Kombat title. Note: The following arenas do not have an alternate soundtrack: Desert, Hell, Rooftop (Dusk), Shao Kahn's Throne Room, Shang Tsung's Gardens, Shang Tsung's Gardens (Night), The Bell Tower, The Courtyard (Night), and The Flesh Pits.

  • Always fight Goro

    Choose a fighter at the character selection screen in Ladder mode, then hold Back while choosing a difficulty. You will now fight Goro instead of Kintaro in the Boss fight.

  • Fighting with Mileena's veil down

    Perform the "Leaping Sai" move to put a Sai into your opponent's back, then do the "Leaping Neckbite" Enhanced Special and her veil should stay down. You will continue the match with the veil down. Note: If the veil does not stay down, repeat the process.

  • Easy koins

    Set the difficulty to "Very Easy" and rounds to "3". Play Ladder mode, and try to get a "Flawless Victory" to get 1,000 koins. Perform a fatality to get 250 koins. It is possible to get 3,250 koins every few minutes by getting a "Flawless Victory" in all three rounds and performing a fatality.

    In Challenge #265 in the Challenge Tower, you must throw Stryker's grenades into a bucket. Each one gives you 50 koins. Pause the game and retry before time expires. You can start again, but keep the koins earned from your previous attempt. Repeat this as many times as desired.

  • Easy Challenge Tower Level 300

    Choose any fighter, then just keep losing (do not pause and retry) and selecting "Retry". The difficulty will scale down, and you will begin regenerating health between fights. Once you lose ten to fifteen fights, the AI pretty much just stands still.

  • Easy Shao Kahn battle

    When fighting Shao Kahn in Ladder mode, he is much easier and can be defeated by simply backing up continually. He will either taunt or throw a spear, leaving him open for projectile attacks. Teleport attacks are even more useful. Just keep retreating after each hit you land.

  • Easy Shao Kahn battle in Story mode

    A good strategy to defeating Shao Kahn in the final battle is to keep retreating. He will then do one of the following three things: throw a spear, throw a hammer, or laugh/taunt. If he throws a hammer or taunts, you can teleport behind him and quickly uppercut him, then retreat again. If he throws the spear, teleport at the first possible instant, and you can also uppercut. However, if you are too slow, he will turn and attack. The safest way to attack if he throws the spear is to teleport, then jump over his head, dodging his attack, then perform a drop kick followed immediately by the Electric Fly. Always keep retreating after each hit. Also, you can duck when he throws the spear instead of blocking so you don't lose any health like you do when you block.

  • Hidden creature in the Krypt

    While in the Krypt, remain idle for approximately twenty minutes, and then a demon-like creature will appear and make a loud noise. You can also hear this creature scurry around behind you.

  • Skip Krypt animation

    While unlocking anything in the Krypt, press A to skip the animation. This makes browsing much faster.

  • Krypt unlockable locations

    The following is a list of locations for items that can be bought in the Krypt with koins. Note: Visit the Nekropolis to obtain a costume after purchasing it from the Krypt.

  • Hidden chest locations

    Search the indicated areas in the Krypt to find the four secret treasure chests. You will see "SEC #" appear at the bottom of the screen when you are in the correct location of a secret chest. Then, press A to purchase the chest for free. Note: Each treasure chest contains 5,000 koins. To locate the secret treasure chests more easily, look for small, green areas on the ground that resemble acid moving around in a puddle.

      1. Deadlands: Approach the tomb of DL45, then go left towards DL52. Look forward and right where little bugs appear near a patch of grass.
      2. Hollow Of Infestation: Follow the wall from the lake where the area starts. It is along the wall, in front of a demon head sculpture. Six skulls bugs will appear under it.
      3. Bloodmarsh: Go right from BM81. It is along the wall, in front of a demon head sculpture.
      4. Meadow Of Despair: From the back row, go left from the left most Iron Maiden. It is on top of a slight mound around some bugs. It is to the right of the Necropolis entry.
