Kombatant: Sub-Zero
Finisher Type: Fatality
Game: Mortal Kombat

Of the original Kombatants, Sub-Zero was the fan favorite - his freeze moves caught the eye of every kid in the arcade. He also had the goriest fatality in the first game – that dripping, trailing spinal cord was extremely graphic for the time. What really gave us nightmares, however, was the agonized voice of the victim when Sub-Zero ripped his/her head off. It was a scream that launched a thousand parent protests.
