Mortal Kombat X Fatalities Guide: How To Do Every Character's Finishing Move

A victory in Mortal Kombat X isn't quite complete unless you've manage to finish off your opponent with a gory Fatality. If you're trying to figure out how to do each character's finishing move, keep reading.

Every character on Mortal Kombat X's roster has two Fatalities they can use at the end of a match. You can watch them all here. The button combinations needed for each Fatality are listed in the guide below. Buttons for both Xbox 360/Xbox One controllers and PS4/PS3 controllers are listed. "Forward" means you should move toward your opponent while "Back" means move away from him or her.

At the end of each Fatality's listing, the range is mentioned. This indicates how far you need to be from your opponent when you begin the Fatality. "Close" is melee range, "mid" is about half a screen away from your opponent, and "far" is essentially a full screen away.

It's worth noting that MKX also lets you earn easy versions of these Fatalities by playing through the game. Alternately, you can unlock them instantly by spending money.

We'll be updating the list over time as more DLC characters are released, so be sure to check back on this article in the months ahead.
