Mortal Kombat X Guide: How to do Every Character's Fatalities

Check this list for every fatality currently available in Mortal Kombat X!

Fatalities are a huge part of Mortal Kombat X. Since the series began, they have given the games the Mature rating with over the top kills after the match is over.

You start with the first fatality for every character unlocked, and you can unlock the rest by using the Krypt. You can still do a fatality even if you don't have it unlocked, as long as you know the button inputs. That's what this guide is for, letting you know every fatality available without using the Krypt.
