Kombatant: Cyrax
Finisher Type: Fatality
Game: Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

After Mortal Kombat III, the franchise hit a rut. The developers tried to make the transition to 3D, but just ended up making a pile of polygon crap. They finally found their groove again with Deadly Alliance, which began by snapping Liu Kang's neck. Cyrax's Fatality demonstrated the team's rejuvenated dedication to blood and guts, while keeping the dark sense of humor that made the violence palatable.
