** "New Species". Remember how D'Vorah killed Mileena in Mortal Kombat X's story mode? Well, her first fatality is similar to that, except ''even worse'', looking like something from ''Film/TheThing1982'' that would make Creator/JohnCarpenter proud. She first stabs her victim in the shoulders to bring them to their knees, then vomits bugs into their mouth. As the victim's body writhes and convulses, giant spider-like legs emerge from their torso and finally their head splits in half as a bug's head emerges and takes its place, basically turning their body into [[NauseaFuel disgusting]] BigCreepyCrawly.
** "Can't Die" is just...''[[{{Squick}} EURRGGH.]]'' D'vorah pins her opponent to the ground with a sticky fluid, then uses her ovipositors to ''peel the opponent's skin off like a sticker'' from their head to their torso, leaving their organs exposed.

** "The Cyber Initiative" is yet another play on the classic Spine Rip, this time with her firing a frosty ChestBlaster that freezes her opponent, shattering her victim's flesh, then ripping out the spine with the brain still attached. If that wasn't bad enough, a drone then takes the brain and spine and ''[[UnwillingRoboticization implants it in a Cyber Lin-Kuei body]]''! Even [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog Dr. Eggman]], who is notorious for turning people into robots, would find this a bit too much! Granted, some of the kombatants like Shao Kahn are unpleasant to begin with but to see them being turned into robot ninjas against their will is, as Dark Raiden would say, a FateWorseThanDeath.

** "Supply Drop". Sonya snaps her opponents arm in half and elbows them to the ground. Then she deploys a drone right on top of them, cutting them in half. If that wasn't bad enough, the poor sap is still alive... long enough to watch the drone to blow a through their face.

** "Coming in Hot" starts with Jax putting a mine in his opponents back and kicking them a good enough distance for it to detonate. When it does, the explosion the opponent right to a Jax delivering lariat that cuts them in half.

But as every title progresses through its DarkerAndEdgier plot, this one has eventually reached its DarkestHour.
As stated, there are [[FateWorseThanDeath Fates Worse than Death]].

* Nightwolf:
** Nightwolf buries his tomahawk in the opponent's jaw and unhinges it. What follows next is a display of pure brutality as Nightwolf grabs the jaw and rips off ''the front of their torso'', spilling entrails on the floor. For the good measure he also throws the axe at the opponent's heart, cleaving it in two.


** "Face Like A Dropped Pie" is a bit tamer than most at first, although in detail it is probably one of the more painful ones. To elaborate, Kano tackles the opponent onto the ground, headbutts the opponent multiple times until [[YourHeadASplode their head explodes...]] keep in mind that Kano has a metal plate on the side of his face (and a laser eye!), which can only mean that [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Kano is crushing in the opponent's skull over and over]] until it looks something like [[https://i.redd.it/pqqte5bdrjl21.jpg this]]. And the opponent ''is still living at this point''. And just before the final blow, we get a POV shot from the unfortunate victim... with Kano [[SlasherSmile grinning like a maniac as he rears back to finish them off.]] Even if the rest of the Fatality is potentially underwhelming, the sheer [[BloodKnight savagery]] in his expression is enough to give anyone chills.

Added DiffLines:

* Kano:
** "Last Dance" is no slouch in terms of sadism. Kano cracks open a beer with his teeth and downs it, before [[GrievousBottleyHarm taking the empty bottle, smashing it over the opponent's head, and stabbing them in the throat with the broken glass.]] As they stumble back and gurgle blood, Kano catches them by the wrist and dances a waltz with them as they bleed out, [[PsychoticSmirk all with a vicious, satisfied grin on his face.]] It's simple, but the pleasure Kano takes in doing it makes it very creepy -- especially against [[AbhorrentAdmirer Cassie and Sonya.]]

** "Kondemned To The Damned" is absolutely painful to behold. He holds his opponent in the air with chains, then opens a portal to the Netherrealm that looks like a pool of lava. From that portal pops two Revenants that proceed to rip his victim's guts out and their face off before yanking their skeleton out of their skin, the {{Overcrank}} kicking in just before the removed skeleton is pulled into the portal.

* While pretty much all the brutalities are terrifying in their own right, Geras' stone cold one-liners add to the horror of his brutalities, regardless if he's erasing you from existence or snapping your neck with one of your eyeballs popping out of its socket. His [[VoiceOfTheLegion voice]] doesn't make it any better.
-->'''Geras''': Your death serves Kronika...

Well, her first fatality is similar to that, except ''even worse'', looking like something from Film/TheThing that would make John Carpenter proud. She first stabs her victim in the shoulders to bring them to their knees, then vomits bugs into their mouth. As the victim's body writhes and convulses, giant spider-like legs emerge from their torso and finally their head splits in half as a bug's head emerges and takes its place, basically turning their body into [[NauseaFuel disgusting]] BigCreepyCrawly.

** "Food For Thought" He [[TearOffYourFace rips off the opponent's face,]] then the front of their skull. Then he tears out their brain and channels the spirit of Mileena by [[BrainFood taking a big chomp out of it]].

You can also hear the death rattles of the unfortunate sap that ends up being the recipient of this fatality. It's quite chilling.


** "Totem Sacrifice" has summon a sacrificial alter, throw his opponent against it, then kick their head with enough force to separate it from the body, with the spine still attached. As if the brutality of it wasn't enough, he then summons a giant stone skull to crush his victim's disembodied head. Bonus points for one of the unlucky sap's [[EyeScream eyes]] flying at the screen when the {{Overcrank}} kicks in.

** "Kat Food" is quite the terrifying throwback to the animalities of the third game. Kotal Kahn uses his sickles to slice open the opponent's chest, and then he morphs into a jaguar, pouncing on the victim and ripping their throat out before grabbing the opponent's heart in his jaws and crushing it savagely.


** The bastard is known for taking souls, but not necessarily for reconstituting them; that's where this first one comes into play. He hot-charges the soul before flinging it into his victim's body, leaving a clear gaping hole, only for two muscular arms to rupture out the victim's sides, rip the host's own arms off, and replace them with two more. The four hands converge on the gaping hole, rip with full force, and the victim comes apart as what looks to be Kintaro emerges from within!

* Skarlet makes creative use of blood in her Fatal Blow. She first stabs his opponent in the shoulder to stun them before going for a series of stabs in their abdomen followed by ''slitting it upward'' [[SlasherSmile with an absolute expression of delight in her face]], before pulling her opponent's blood out of the wounds, forming a huge blood scythe and impaling their opponent on a upward motion, launching them into the air. She then conjures a blood spear amd chucks it at her opponent, impaling them through the mouth.

Added DiffLines:

** Shang Tsung's ending. With his sheer mastery of sorcery, he is easily able to take Kronika's soul and power. Combining his newfound status as Master of Time with his deadly intelligence, Shang Tsung decides not to flaunt his position as Kronika once did, leaving traces of her existence as rumors and legends. Instead, he remains in the shadows while others do his dirty work for him. And who does he decide to use as his pawns? [[EldritchAbomination The other Titans.]] Yes, you heard correctly. Shang Tsung ''[[DidYouJustScamCthulhu manipulates beings more powerful than even the Elder Gods like it was mere child's play]].'' Now with an infinite supply of souls, he creates a universe where the concept of morality has no meaning and the cunning prosper while the good suffer. [[CallBack Have a nice day.]]


** "Hooked" is no slouch, either - first, he slices the opponent in the gut, spilling their intestines and turning them around. He then slices ''clean through'' their ankles, and as they fall forward, hooks his swords into their mouth. He then ''pulls'' - you can audibly hear the sound of the victim's ''teeth cracking'' - until his swords come clean through the head, bisecting it horizontally.

This gets even more nightmarish when you look at the faces of the victims while this is happening. ''There is genuine fear.'' It's horrifying.


** "Split Decision" first has him slice open his opponent's guts with his sickle, which causes their intestines to fall out. He then shoves his fist into the open hole and sends his clone into the opponent's body... which is followed by the clone ''ripping'' itself out, starting by ripping the jaws open from the inside and [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe tearing the opponent in half]] ''vertically'' from the inside.
