Thanks to @mineisbroken; this one comes from the extended MKOmmunity on Twitter [follow: @MK_Online]. We're sure you'll agree, [@FillEffect's plates] show a level of commitment that is both outstanding, and riddled with uncomfortable and wildly inappropriate implications when taken to a logical conclusion.

Younger fans - and those who never played Mortal Kombat for the Sega Genesis - might not know the significance of this particular "selfy". Here's a clue: It isn't Ohio.

The original MK console ports didn't deliver the splashes of cartoon blood that made the arcade game(s) infamous. While Nintendo played fast and loose with substitute fluids, Sega sparked controversy and a need for parental ratings by hiding the blood option behind a now immortal input code: ABACABB!

The code had to be hit at just the right time on a special screen during the game start up. True to the martial arts mythology of the original Mortal Kombat, the screen teased the existence of this and other codes through mysteriouso dialogue:

The word 'code' has many different definitions. The shaolin martial arts tournament is governed by a system of rules of conduct ethical code.

The combatants respect each other as warriors, no matter what degree of hatred they have for one another... a code of honor.

Another type of code could be defined as an arbitrary system of symbols or letters for transmitting messages... a secret code.

Mortal Kombat adheres to many codes, but does it contain one?

Blood has long since become par for the course in violent video games. making a blood mode code seem somewhat quaint. Options still exist to toggle blood on and off in game menus, but that fact is probably a better kept secret than the Genesis code ever was!
