Hi and welcome to my first FAQ, in here you will find the moves and secrets
from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Why I am making such a FAQ you ask? 
Well, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 has always been one of my favorite games
so I decided to do one just for the love of it.

This FAQ will include the movelist, finishing moves and other important
stuff like kombat kodes and secrets from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 
so don't be expecting how to learn to do that  10 Hit Combo you always
dream of since I won't be doing that here. If you want to learn how to do
some killer combos, I recommend you take a look at PWXShock Combo FAQ.
It explains stuff about combos a lot better than me or anyone else.

You can find it here:


Since that's out of the way, let's get on with the FAQ!

You have been chosen to represent Earth in Mortal Kombat. Be warned, although
your souls are protected against Shao Kahn evil: Your lives are not. I cannot
interfere any longer as your Earth is now ruled by the Outworld gods.
These are the words of Raiden

For centuries Earth has used Mortal Kombat to defend itself against the
Outworld's Emperor Shao Kahn. But, Kahn becomes frustrated by failed attempts
at taking Earth through tournament battle. He enacts a plan which began 10,000
years ago.

During this time Kahn had a Queen. Her name was Sindel and her young death was
unexpected. Kahn's Shadow Priests, lead by Shang Tsung, make it so Sindel's 
spirit would someday be reborn: Not on the Outworld but on the Earth Realm

This unholy act gives Shao Kahn the power to step through the dimensional gates
and reclaim his Queen, thus enabling him to finally seize the Earth Realm.

Upon breaching the Portal into Earth, Saho Kahn slowly transforms the planet
into a part of the Outworld itself.

Kahn strips the Earth of all human life: claiming every soul as his own.

But there are souls which Kahn cannot take. These souls belong to the warriors
chosen to represent Earth in a new Mortal Kombat.

The remaining humans are scattered through out the planet. Shao Kahn sends an
army of fierce Outworld warriors to find and eliminate them.

After the first tournament Sonya Blade turned up missing. Jax then embarked
on a rescue mission into the Outworld. He found Sonya being held captive with
her nemesis Kano. In freeing Sonya, Jax also frees Kano. Kano then uses the
chance to escape arrest.

The ultimate advancement in Lin Kuei technology comes with the creation of the
first cyber-assasin. They begin converting their human ninjas into soulless 
machines. But Sub-Zero refuses to take part and is marked for death by his own

After winning the first Mortal Kombat and escaping from the Outworld, Liu Kang
looks to the future. He begins training a new generation of Shaolin alongside
Kung Lao. But nothing could prepare them for the unexpected Outwolrd invasion.

4.  KEY:

All the buttons you see on the machine are involved in the finishing moves(Low
Punch, High Punch, High Kick, Low Kick, Block, Run).The joystick movements are
also important to do some of the moves (Up, Down, Forward, Back)

Here are also some stuff you got to understand before reading the FAQ:

You grab the opponent by pressing Forward + Low Punch near the opponent.

Some combinations involved pressing two buttons at once, I will mark this ones
with a + sign(Ex. Block+ Run)

There are 3 different ways to perform a Finishing Move. In one you just have to
do a joystick combination and press a button at the end(Ex. Forward, Forward,
Forward, Low Punch)
Another type is that you have to hold a button and quickly imput the joystick
or button combination that follows and end the combination by realising the
hold button(Ex. Hold Low Punch{Forward,Forward,Fordward}release Low Punch).
The third type is the one you have to imput a button combination in which it
doesn't involve the joystick in any way(Ex. Block,Block,Run,Run,Low Punch)

You also have to check some different stuff before performing a Finishing Move.
You gotta check the distance you'r standing in first. There are five types of
distances which I will describe below:

Close: You have to be beside your opponent
Sweep: Get close to your opponent and take 2 steps backwards
Outside Sweep: Move more than two steps back but no more than 
               jumping distance.
Jumping: Get close to your opponent and do 1 jump backwards
Full Screen: You gotta be standing on the other side of the screen

The distance will be marked with an asterisk (Ex. *Close*) If a move doesn't
have a distance beside it, it means it can be done anywhere (Ex. Liu Kang)

Some of the moves involved jumping or moving distances(Ex. Liu Kang).
In order to do this attacks or finishers easier, I recomment holding Block
when performing them.


In Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 there are 6 types of Finishing Moves which I will 
describe briefly below:


Ah! The most memorable part of Mortal Kombat!  In a Fatality you kill your
opponent in a really gruesome way. In order to perform a Fatality you must
defeat your opponent and when the annoucer calls the infamous FINISH HIM/HER
perform the combination listed for the character you are using.

STAGE FATALITY:----------------------------------------------------------------

This type of Fatality can only be perfomed on 4 stages(Saho Kahn's Tower, The
Pit III, The Subway and Scorpion's Lair). In order to perform this fatalily
defeat your opponent on one of the selected stages and perform the 
button combination.  All Stage Fatalities are performed in the Close position.


The Friendship is a finishing move which involves not killing your opponent but
doing something nice for them.
In order to perform a Frienship Move, you have to fight your winning round
WITHOUT, I repeat Without using Block. Then after you defeat your opponent
perform the button combination.
All Friendships can be done in any position excluding a few ones(Ex. Kabal)


The Babality is a finishing move which involves
turning your opponent into a baby.
In order to perform a Babality, you must fight your winning round without using 
Block and after you defeat your opponent perform the button combination
All Babalities can be done in any position you want.


The Mercy is not actually a Finishing Move but something that helps
your opponent. A Mercy gives your opponent a little bit of
health back so you can defeat them again, BE CAREFUL thought since your
opponent may do a incredible comeback on you.
In order to do a Mercy you have to win on your third round and perform the
following combination:   Hold Run(Down, Down) Release Run.


The Animality is a finishing move in which you killed your opponent by
transforming into an animal.
In order to perform an Animality you have to beat you opponent on the 3rd round
and then perform a Mercy. After you activate the Mercy defeat your opponent
again and perform the button combination as listed.


The part you have all been waiting for, the Move List:

You can cycle through the symbols backwards if you hold Up and press one of 
the buttons. Cappice?
