If the Fatalities in Mortal Kombat X make you squeamish you're really not going to like the real-life, live-action version of some of those Fatalities. The gory battles from the game are brought to life thanks to Australian YouTube group known as RackaRacka.
You can check out the three minute video below, edited and directed by Danny and Michael Philippou. I suppose a NSFW warning is in order. So yeah, the following video is not safe for work.
The video starts off innocuous enough – assuming dropping F-bombs every other word is innocuous – but then things kick into high gear when two of the three individuals discussing Mortal Kombat Fatalities begin fighting over how lame they are. Yes, a fight broke out over discussing how lame Fatalities are in Mortal Kombat X.
The fight is very well choreographed, but before you can start appreciating the technique on display, things start turning extra violent.
After performing a number of brutal combos on his friend, an X-ray attack follows and then Sub-Zero's classic spine-ripping Fatality follows.
The quality of the gore in that segment isn't all too shocking. The following Fatality, involving a riff on Kung Lao's spinning hat Fatality, steps it up by a moderate degree. The guy in the sweatshirt gets his head split open by the buzz-saw and then has his head split open even further when the crazy t-shirt guy spills his brains all over the place.
Mortal Kombat X's Fatalities were gruesome enough in 3D but seeing them replicated in real life makes them even more gruesome.
Things take a turn toward Troma territory when the crazy t-shirt guy proceeds to kill the little kid after using Scorpion's harpoon technique. From there, we enter super bizarro world when the kid's mother kills crazy t-shirt guy. But it gets even worse... Black Scorpion appears out of no where and then kills the kid's mother in a very disturbing way.
The YouTube comments are pretty much spot on to what you would expect from a video like that. King Derp stated “I'm scarred for life now.” and Jordan Evans meekly wrote “that's enough internet for today”.
For people unfamiliar with Mortal Kombat X, the gruesome video above basically introduces you to the world of gore and viscera that you would expect to find in NetherRealm Studios' fighting game.
It still amazes me that Mortal Kombat X managed to escape with a Mature rating while the very tame yet controversial Hatred was hit with an Adults Only rating. Absolutely baffling.
Anyway, Mortal Kombat X is available right now and if you want to see those very same Fatalities and X-ray attacks from the RackaRacka video executed within the realm of video games you can do so right now for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
