-=Section 1: Introduction=-
  This FAQ is intended to be an informational guide for Sub-Zero, possibly 
one of the most played Mortal Kombat characters in the series. This FAQ will 
cover both the Masked and Un-Masked Sub-Zero's, covering their moves, 
finishing moves, and endings.

-=Section 2: Classic Sub-Zero=-

  Thought to have been vanquished in the Shaolin tournament, Sub-Zero 
mysteriously returns. It's believed this secretive member of the Lin Kuei, a 
legendary clan of Chinese "ninjas", has returned to again attempt an 
assassination of Shang Tsung. To do so, he must fight his way through Shao 
Kahn's tournament.

-=Classic Sub-Zero's Moves=-

Ice Ball: Quarter Circle Forward + High Punch

*Sub-Zero throws a ball of ice across the screen, freezing his opponent* 

Ice Puddle: Quarter Circle Backward + Low Kick

*Sub-Zero throws a ball of ice into the ground, creating a puddle which an 
advancing opponent slips on*

Slide: Back + Low Kick + Low Punch + Block

*Sub-Zero slide across the ground, knocking his opponent off their feet*

-=Classic Sub-Zero's Finishing Moves=-

Finishing Move 1: (Close Range)Down + Down + Down + Forward + High Punch

*Sub-Zero reverts back to his classic finishing move, gripping the opponents 
head, and tearing backward, although the screen fades before seperation ,you 
still hear the scream and rip*

Finishing Move 2: (Close Range) Down + Forward + Forward + Forward + High 

*Sub-Zero uppercuts the opponent, and rains ice down onto the ground, 
creating a spike into the air, soon after, the opponent comes crashing down 
atop of it*

Animality: (Stand Close) Back + Back + Down + Forward + Low Punch

Brutality:  High Punch - Low Punch - High Punch - Block - Low Kick - Low Kick

-=Sub-Zero's Combo's=-

First Combo: High Punch - High Punch - Back + Low Kick - Back + High Kick - 
Forward + Low Kick (26%)

Second Combo: High Punch - High Punch - Down + Low Punch - Down + High Punch 
- Jump Kick - Slide (33%)

  I've found that with Classic Sub-Zero, you can do major damage against just 
about anyone, either on this game, or in the Arcade. If you range both your 
Ice Ball and your Ice Puddle, no one can jump in, or jump out. 

  Playing against him at higher levels, will net you a headache. He is quick 
to counter punch a jump kick, and even quicker to drop an Ice Puddle when you 
land, and smash you with an uppercut. 

-=Classic Sub-Zero's Ending Movie=-
  Having been killed in the first tournament, Sub-Zero somehow seems to have 
emerged to win the third tournament.  However, upon removing his mask both 
the Outworld and the Earth-born warriors are shocked to discover the true 
identity of this warrior.  A warrior who has long been missing from a 
previous Mortal Kombat, and one who will return in the fourth tournament.


-=Section 3: Sub-Zero=-

   The ninja returns unmasked.  He was betrayed by his own clan, the Lin 
Kuei.  He broke sacred codes of honor by leaving his clan and is marked for 
death.  But, unlike the ninja, his persurors come as machines.  He must not 
only defend from the Outworld, but he must elude his souless assassins.

-=Sub-Zero's Moves=-

  Sub-Zero in his unmasked form, is a powerhouse. If you can master the 
timing of the Ice Showers, and the various combos that can be performed after 
a freeze, you'll rule the PSX and an arcade machine.

  Playing against him is a bit hard. He can counter anything that you have 
with a well timed Ice Shower. Not to be underestimated, he can cost you a few 

-=Sub-Zero's Ending Movie=-

  In vicious battle, Sub-Zero faces Cyrax and Sektor:  but not alone. He 
finds his third Lin Kuei assassin - the elusive Smoke.  Before automation, 
Smoke and Sub-Zero were allies.  Sub-Zero helps Smoke recall his past and 
regains him as an ally once again. Sub-Zero defeats his cyborg assassins with 
the help of Smoke and finds it takes all of his own inner strengths to defeat 
Kahn and his Outworld minions. The former ninja once again disappears into 
the shadows, his legacy known only by a select few.
