** One that truly stands out is Noob Saibot's "Make a Wish". He summons his shadow clone on the opposite side of the opponent. Both he and the clone grab onto one of the opponent's legs and pull, slowly ripping the opponent in half vertically, with the opponent still alive throughout the entire thing until their body splits completely.

** Good luck getting a good night's sleep after [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCXX9QrO-gw&feature=related seeing Mileena's fatality]].
** Kung Lao is no slouch in horrifyingly gory finishers either. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2K-Z05hmRc See for yourself.]]



*** His other fatality. Remember ComicBook/TheJoker's gun fatality in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse''? By the time of the second gunshot, you see the [[YourHeadASplode victim's head explode]] right in front of you. It doesn't help that Tsung transforms into a MonsterClown for this fatality.
** Skarlet's "Blood Bath" fatality is particularly horrific; not only does she slit your throat, but she tilts your head back and lets your blood spray on her.
*** Her second fatality, "Make It Rain", is even more terrifying. She stabs herself and melts into a puddle of blood that slithers underneath the opponent. Then, four spikes made of hardened blood come out of the puddle, impaling the opponent through their arms and legs and lifting them above her, who emerges shortly after. She then proceeds to cut the opponent open and lets the blood rain down on her.

*** The Klassic Skins DLC also includes his classic "Toasty!" fatality, rendered in all of its 3D glory and horror.
** Sheeva's "Stripped Down" fatality is now rendered in all of its horrifically bloody HD glory.
** Smoke's "Smoked Out" involves Smoke plugging his fingers into his opponent's cranium and then removing them, where his smoke then melts his foe like acid from the inside out. The player is greeted by the hapless victim screaming in pain as their skin and most of their muscle tissue is burned away.
*** His second fatality, "Tremor", involves him doing his smoke teleport through the opponent. The victim barely gets time to scream before they fall apart into a heap.
** Nightwolf's "Ascension" fatality consists of sending the skin of his defeated opponent to Heaven. Just the skin.

** Rain's first fatality, "Bubble Burst", is absolutely horrific. He creates a large bubble of water over his opponent's head which forces itself down into their mouth, causing them to expand to terrifying proportions...then they explode.
** Even the bosses have fatalities, and they're just as scary as the others:
*** Goro can either tear your head off and rip it into fourths, or dismember you before tearing your body in half lengthwise.
*** Kintaro can either rip off your arms and head (and rip the head in half, as well), or quarter you with his bare hands.
*** But Shao Kahn tops them all: he either tosses you in the air and smashes you to bits with one swipe of his hammer, or plunges his bare hands into your chest and tears you in half like he was parting a curtain.
* While the Krypt is usually a disturbing place in most of the games, it generally isn't bad enough to warrant any scares. ''[=MK9=]'' breaks this tradition by including a [[JumpScare random screamer]] in it. Emphasis on [[ParanoiaFuel random]].
** The Krypt is also broken into different sections. Near the Necropolis, there's a field full of a bloody river and multiple men strapped into varying torture devices, screaming in agony. You ''kill'' them to unlock the space.

** In the Subway, your head is repeatedly slammed against a passing train and then thrown in front of another one.
** Kratos' Arena has an option to do THREE different death traps: crushing, burning alive and being sliced into pieces.
** Remember how [[VideoGame/MortalKombatShaolinMonks Shaolin Monks]] was the first time you could actually ''[[VideoGameCrueltyPotential feed your enemies to the trees]]'' in [[WhenTreesAttack The Living Forest]]? Yeah, that's back. The victor tosses their dazed opponent into the maw of a hungry tree that proceeds to chew away, eventually biting off the legs and swallowing the torso. As the camera zooms out, the legs are still twitching.
* Also on the note with the Living Forest, the background is filled with bodies hanging from trees and one man entangled by one of them, lying back against it in the foreground. [[CruelAndUnusualDeath Except some of these bodies don't appear to be quite dead]], [[AndIMustScream as they can be seen gasping for air or vomiting on the ground]] as you fight.

*** Speaking of which, said experience is scary on its own: in Chapter 12, after witnessing Raiden's killing of Motaro, Kintaro appears in front of both Stryker and him and proceeds to roast the latter.



* [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger's]] fatalities are no slouches either:
** In the first one, he summons a boiler out of the ground, and then tosses the conquered foe in it. They start burning to death; not immediately like Scorpion's "Toasty!" fatality, slowly. They try to stumble out, but all they can do is get one of their arms out of it, and Freddy gives a taunting wave before slamming the boiler door on the grasping appendage, severing it.
** His second one has him appear behind his opponent, impale them with both claws, and drag them into a hole that appears within the ground. It soon closes up. And what comes next? A geyser of blood. Extra points to how [[GoryDiscretionShot it doesn't show exactly what Freddy's doing to the opponent.]]

* The intro sequence of the Story Mode. Every single character that appeared in the series until ''Armageddon'' is dead and in bloody chunks save for Shao Kahn and Raiden, the former beating the ever-loving crap out of the latter while delivering a chilling TheReasonYouSuckSpeech... And to get into more detail, just to see how scary it is: [[spoiler:dead bodies everywhere; vultures eating Sonya's [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe severed]] body, Johnny Cage's [[OffWithHisHead head]], Baraka cut in half by Kung Lao's [[NiceHat razor hat]]]], you name it.
** The fate of [[spoiler:all but two]] of the members of the Forces of Light. [[spoiler:Raiden]]'s failure to [[spoiler:successfully interpret the visions of his future self]] led him to make mistake after mistake, each one more costly than the last. Nine of the heroes died in the battle against [[spoiler:Sindel]], and all of them are now [[spoiler:slaves of Quan Chi]]. [[spoiler:Liu Kang]], the most devout of the group, loses his faith in [[spoiler:Raiden]] and is accidentally killed by him.

The first thing her mother does is unleash a terrible sonic scream while casually walking towards her and her allies and proceed to challenge them all to a fight to the death. In a terrifying display of power and brutality, Sindel proceeds to completely wipe the floor with ten of the 64 purportedly greatest fighters in all the realms, viciously killing six of them in the process, before subjecting Kitana to a merciless beating at the hands of her own gleefully grinning and laughing mother. As Kitana pleads for mother to remember Edenia, she is cruelly disowned as a traitor to Shao Kahn, leaving her heartbroken on top of being powerless to stop her mother from ''ripping out and absorbing her soul''.

to:

* As the battles wear on, characters [[ShowsDamage experience more than]] ClothingDamage; [[HowMuchMoreCanHeTake The characters look like they're ready for a trip to the morgue]]. Many are missing chunks of skin, removed eyelids or lips, have loose bits of skin flapping freely about (Liu Kang's alt costume is particularly odious in this regard - two massive strips of skin are barely hanging onto his face), or have exposed bones - even spines and skulls. This can turn many of the fanservice-y costumes into incredibly disturbing appearances. For an extra layer of creepiness, the more cheery characters (think Johnny Cage) maintain their smiles and dances and whatever, no matter how battered they are.


Added DiffLines:

** Baraka, depending on the costume you pick, can either lose an ear or have a chunk of skin flapping off from his lower lip. Either way, he loses a lot of teeth.
** Jax in his alt costume has exposed brain, loose skin hanging off his jaw, and no skin around one of his eyes.
