Sometimes, in a Fighting Game, a plain old Finishing Move just won't do when the game commands that you "Finish Him!!" Enter the Stage Fatality. These moves combine the usual lethality of a finishing move with Everything Trying to Kill You. Typically, not every stage will have a fatality to go with it, either because it wouldn't make sense or the developers just didn't think to make one. A lot of older fighting games, like Mortal Kombat II and Killer Instinct, will go with the Rule of Three for how many different stage fatalities there are.
