The Super moves are a key component of any fighting game and Mortal Kombat 1 is no different. Returning from Mortal Kombat 11 are the Fatal Blows, a vicious move that sees your characters unleash pure violence onto the opposition. These moves play a critical role in the game and could be the difference between a clutch victory and a deflating defeat. Allow me to explain how these moves work and how to perform them. This guide will explain to players how to do a Fatal Blow X-Ray move in Mortal Kombat 1.

How To Do A Fatal Blow In Mortal Kombat 1
The Fatal Blow functions as a comeback mechanic and only becomes available when a player drops to or below 30% health. You will know that the move is available when you see the words “FATAL BLOW” appear beneath your health bar. A super powerful move that can cut through an opponent’s health bar, it can be great to make up the life difference if you have fallen behind or finish out a match when you just need that little extra damage. The move doesn’t require any motion input or anything like that. You simply need to press the two triggers on your controllers or the buttons that are mapped to the Flip Stance and Block buttons. When you press the buttons at the same time, you will attack your enemy and if the attack hits, you will perform the Fatal Blow.
Hitting the Fatal Blow will play a cinematic animation where you and your Kameo perform a vicious combo of attacks. These bone-crunching hits will be shown on full display as you get X-Ray shots of each combo’s most violent hit. If you miss or your opponent blocks the Fatal Blow, you will be unable to use it for 10 seconds. Each player can only land their Fatal Blow once, so if you use the move and hit your opponent in Round 1 and then drop down to 30% health in the next 2 rounds, the Fatal Blow will not be available.
One important note about the Fatal Blow is that your Kameo Fighter must not be on screen when you hit the button. If your Kameo is on-screen performing a move, you won’t be able to use Fatal Blow even if the Kameo attack is an Ambush attack. So, if you want to use Fatal Blow, make sure your Kameo move is finished and they are off the screen.
