A Look At Those Crazy Mortal Kombat Boss Death Outros
Mortal Kombat had those really weird boss outros plus we have Shao Kahn having the most number of death outros since he had the most number of appearances. Now it's time to do my reaction to how these happen:
1.) Mortal Kombat's Shang Tsung - IMO, this is pretty funny. So the last hit causes him to "dance" cha cha and the souls of the kombatants come out of his body. In the process, he actually dies as the souls come out of his body hinting to why he could use the abilities of others.
2.) Mortal Kombat II Shao Kahn - I felt this one was pretty weird. The final hit has your character doing the win pose then Shao Kahn does his "laugh pose" but he's actually saying "No..." several times. The background changes (which IMO can be either cool or just annoying) before he turns into stone and explodes.
3.) Shao Kahn's Mortal Kombat 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Mortal Kombat Trilogy death is where souls come out of his bodies. I felt like UMK3 tried to redo Kahn's death animation with the backgrounds changing (it CAN get SUPER ANNOYING). The Nintendo 64 added some souls coming out in the form of other players. The most standard one was where Shao Kahn exploded without the background shifting nor other characters popping out of his body.
4.) Mortal Kombat 4/Gold's Shinnok - I thought it's probably F*CKING lazy. After Shinnok is defeated, his face loses its skin and he falls down back into the Netherrealm. Not really all that impressive huh?
5.) Mortal Kombat Deception's Onaga - Basically he's the "Gargos" of the game if Shao Kahn were Eyedol. After the last hit, he goes into flames and does a similar posture as Shao Kahn back in MK3 then he blows up leaving only his head behind. The character does the win pose after that.
6.) Mortal Kombat Armageddon's Blaze - Not so different from Onaga minus the head being left behind.
7.) Mortal Kombat (2011)'s Shao Kahn - It is a pretty modified version of Mortal Kombat II's death outro. This time, Shao Kahn gets a final hit combo from the character after the final hit ending with a launching attack then he raises his arms like in MK3, turns into stone then explodes. So far, it's a better version of MK2's final demise of Kahn without the annoying background shifts.
8.) Mortal Kombat X's Corrupted Shinnok - The victorious player rips off the amulet, Shinnok levitates into the air and explodes. A huge improvement from Mortal Kombat 4/Gold's final outro.
