10. Liu Kang, Dragon Fatality

Series: Mortal Kombat
First Appearance: Mortal Kombat II

Mortal Kombat had tricks up their sleeve in the early days. MKII took the best of the best of part one, sprinkled some nuances, and threw out a ton of surprises. Liu Kang’s dragon fatality is the most memorable. This Shaolin Monk wasn’t playing games the second time around.

He kept the uppercut fatality, but he wanted to take lives too, and thus the dragon fatality was born. The first time you see it, everything around you comes to a screeching halt, and then you’re left in awe until the next match. We get the same feeling a decade later.
