Ed Boon Names Top 5 Favorite Fatalities for IGN

Have you ever wondered where they come up with all those crazy finishing moves? Boy, I know I sure have! IGN tackled the subject from another perspective when they spoke to series co-creator Ed Boon, asking him what his Top 5 Favourite Fatalities are! Check it out:


Fatality Demonstration: Relive each klasslic fatality chosen via the playlist.

PLAYLIST
- Quan Chi (Mortal Kombat 4)
- Scorpion (Mortal Kombat X)
- Sub-Zero (Mortal Kombat)
- Kung Lao (Mortal Kombat II)
- Babality (Mortal Kombat II)
Boon's on-the-spot selections are an interesting blend of the undisputed klassics - Sub-Zero's Spine Rip, and less expected cult favorites - Quan Chi's Leg Beat!

Anticipation surrounding Scorpion and his multi-faceted chest flame/face slice fatality in Mortal Kombat X appears to be restoring the forbidden taboo of the increasingly gore based death-moves. [The move was discussed at length during The NetherKast #1].

Though part and parcel for the R rated martial arts cinema that helped to inspire the games -- Mortal Kombat's fatalities have ultimately been a influence on pioneering ratings and classifications for video games. Early arcade controversy helped establish the standards of the ESRB, while Australia finally secured Adult classification in 2013, ending a saga accelerated by the shock 2011 ban on Mortal Kombat.

Fatalities were big news in 2010 ahead of the in-development Mortal Kombat (2011). IGN named their Top 10 Fatalities that year, celebrating their return after 2008's pacified outing with Mortal Kombat Versus DC Universe. Kung Lao's Hat Slice was named the community's favorite fatality that same year, by the developers [full story].

Still wondering where they come up with fatalities after all this? Art Director Steve Beran discussed the process in a 2011 blog. Creative Director [Ed Boon] has been talking about new and unrevealed -Alities as recently as last month's Brazil Games Show [full story].

No Toasty which is a surprise considering they try to put that one in almost every game.

Guessing the Face Slice replaced it.

Kenshi's MK9 scatterbrained fatality is probably the best one ever.

I jiggled a bit when IGN proclaimed they were the right place to look for more MK info... I mean, the site has a story of not caring too much and even sniff at MK IIRC

Well they do have a shit ton of other games to follow as well. But honestly, they are pretty good about MK news. Besides Destin and Vince (IGN's resident FG fans) are really excited for the new MK.

My Top 5 Fatalities would be:

5. Liu Kang's Arcade Cabinet Drop.

4. Johnny Cage's Super Uppercut/ Torso Rip.

3. Scorpion's Hand From Hell.

2. Shinnok's Clapping Hands From Hell.

1. Kung Lao's Buzz Saw.

Boring and predictable list. Everyone and their grandmother already knows that the Leg Beatdown is Ed's favorite Fatality.

Ed Boon's Quan Chi Leg beat is definitly up there. It's so brutal in a way.

Personally I got some strange favorites from MK9.

#1.) Freddy Krueger (MK9) - Tell Em Freddy Sent ya

2.) Kratos (MK9) - Blade of Olympus

3.) Jax (UMK3) - Big Foot. This one is funny.

4.) Raiden (MK:4) - Electrocution. - looks painful.

5.) Rain (MK:9) - Bubble Burst.

Mileenas head chew - MKD
Sindels Scream - MK9
Kung Laos BuzzSaw - MK9
Sonyas Poison Kiss - MKDA
Noobs Wishbone - MK9

In no particular order although Mileenas is truly horrifying. Imagine that mad bitch running at you like that...! (shudder)
