* While relatively mundane in execution, Sub-Zero's "Chest Stomp" Fatality gains a new level of horror as it's one of the only Fatalities in the whole series where the victim audibly pleads for their life. To wit, Subbie [[LiterallyShatteredLives freezes, then shatters off]] his opponents legs, then stares menacingly down at his foe as they crawl backwards, the whole time begging him not to kill them as he [[UnflinchingWalk ominously advances.]] For most characters, it's a fairly humorously hammy chain of [[BigNo Big No's]], but Mileena sounds genuine enough to evoke images of a helpless woman cornered at the bottom of a dark alley.

* Kabal's fatality, in which he screams at the screen, showing his [[NightmareFace horrifying true face]], and then literally scares the foe to death. The ''Mortal Kombat Trilogy'' version has a much nightmarish sounding scream, and when he screams at the screen, his head was a little closer.

* [[HaveANiceDeath The]] GameOver [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ts-i3D8GNuw sequence.]] It's not the [[ForegoneConclusion inevitable impact with the ground]]. It's the set-up, especially the music, what really drives the point it home. Five seconds of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EB_GI7ATE-w this]] are more than enough to make you desperate to pop another quarter or to beg the character to just die already.

It doesn't help that in the arcade version of the game, the well darkens slightly as the chosen character is fated to make impact unless you pay up.

** According to one comic, the Living Forest originated from Edenia, and it used to be called the '''Laughing''' Forest, as the trees were very jolly and full of mirth.
** This [[Tropers/TitoMosquito troper]] once thought he saw a figure running across the background.

* Scorpion rips off his mask to reveal that his head is nothing but a skull, shortly before ''burning you to cinders''.

*** However, this can be seen as a CrowningMomentOfFunny when this fatality is performed on female Kombatants.

*** Even worse, doing this on Shujinko, depending on the console, will wield one of two occurrences. On the PS2, PSP, and GameCube versions, after Liu Kang forces Shujinko to rip off his own head, Liu Kang's own head does not appear. On the Xbox version, the moment he rips off his head, the game freezes with a [[JumpScare sudden, loud buzzing noise]] that is actually quite common for the console in general when it experiences errors like this.

* Scorpion's fatality. You're dragged into hell and beaten to horrific, off-screen death by a massive army of his clones. The PsychoStrings does not help.
