At the character selection screen, highlight a character and press Start. Then, press A for the original Arcade version color scheme. Press Start again for the alternate color scheme.
At the "Arena Select" screen in Versus mode, press Start instead of A to choose an arena. If done correctly, you will hear Shao Khan laugh. During the fight, that arena"s music will be replaced with a song from a previous Mortal Kombat title. Note: The following arenas do not have an alternate soundtrack: Desert, Hell, Rooftop (Dusk), Shao Kahn"s Throne Room, Shang Tsung"s Gardens, Shang Tsung"s Gardens (Night), The Bell Tower, The Courtyard (Night), and The Flesh Pits.
Choose a fighter at the character selection screen in Ladder mode, then hold Back while choosing a difficulty. You will now fight Goro instead of Kintaro in the Boss fight.
Set the difficulty to "Very Easy" and rounds to "3". Play Ladder mode, and try to get a "Flawless Victory" to get 1,000 koins. Perform a fatality to get 250 koins. It is possible to get 3,250 koins every few minutes by getting a "Flawless Victory" in all three rounds and performing a fatality.
In Challenge #265 in the Challenge Tower, you must throw Stryker"s grenades into a bucket. Each one gives you 50 koins. Pause the game and retry before time expires. You can start again, but keep the koins earned from your previous attempt. Repeat this as many times as desired.
Choose any fighter, then just keep losing (do not pause and retry) and selecting "Retry". The difficulty will scale down, and you will begin regenerating health between fights. Once you lose ten to fifteen fights, the AI pretty much just stands still.
When fighting Shao Kahn in Ladder mode, he is much easier and can be defeated by simply backing up continually. He will either taunt or throw a spear, leaving him open for projectile attacks. Teleport attacks are even more useful. Just keep retreating after each hit you land.
A good strategy to defeating Shao Kahn in the final battle is to keep retreating. He will then do one of the following three things: throw a spear, throw a hammer, or laugh/taunt. If he throws a hammer or taunts, you can teleport behind him and quickly uppercut him, then retreat again. If he throws the spear, teleport at the first possible instant, and you can also uppercut. However, if you are too slow, he will turn and attack. The safest way to attack if he throws the spear is to teleport, then jump over his head, dodging his attack, then perform a drop kick followed immediately by the Electric Fly. Always keep retreating after each hit. Also, you can duck when he throws the spear instead of blocking so you don"t lose any health like you do when you block.
While in the Krypt, remain idle for approximately twenty minutes, and then a demon-like creature will appear and make a loud noise. You can also hear this creature scurry around behind you.
While unlocking anything in the Krypt, press A to skip the animation. This makes browsing much faster.
The following is a list of locations for items that can be bought in the Krypt with koins. Note: Visit the Nekropolis to obtain a costume after purchasing it from the Krypt.
Hollow Of Infestation
Meadow Of Despair
Search the indicated areas in the Krypt to find the four secret treasure chests. You will see "SEC #" appear at the bottom of the screen when you are in the correct location of a secret chest. Then, press A to purchase the chest for free. Note: Each treasure chest contains 5,000 koins. To locate the secret treasure chests more easily, look for small, green areas on the ground that resemble acid moving around in a puddle.
To execute a Babality against a Boss, complete the following requirements in Ladder mode:
Goro or Kintaro: Play on the Medium or higher difficulty, and do not lose any matches. Note: You can lose individual rounds, but you cannot continue. Perform a Babality on Shang Tsung. Do not block during the last round of the fight with Goro or Kintaro. The Babality will execute automatically after you win the match.

The Babality will execute automatically after you win the match.
The following is a list of all fatalities, secret fatalities, stage fatalities, and babalities for all characters. Note: Secret fatalities can be performed without buying them in the Krypt as long as you know the correct codes. The classic fatalities require the classic costumes. Some fatalities list "sweep" as a distance, but they can also be executed at close range. For example, both of Baraka"s and Sub-Zero"s fatalities can be performed at close range and sweep distance.
