[I. Introduction to Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks]
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^>^<^

     Before some of you cringe at the thought of another Mortal Kombat 
adventure game, there are a few things that need to be cleared up.  
First and foremost, Shaolin Monks in no way resembles either 
Mythologies: Sub-Zero or Special Forces.  Instead it seeks to 
distinguish itself through a robust move upgrade system, ko-op 
gameplay, multidirectional kombat, extra modes of play, unlockable 
characters, and a complete arcade port of Mortal Kombat II among other 
things.  Along with its vast gameplay options, Shaolin Monks takes 
place between Mortal Kombat 1 and II which can only lead to a deep and 
engaging storyline.  The game does not disappoint in this arena, and 
will have gamers on the edge of their seats until the conclusion.              
     Shaolin Monks’ main gameplay attraction is the ability to play ko-
op with a friend.  And let me be the first to say that playing ko-op is 
an absolute blast and should not be missed out on.  Along with the 
initially playable Liu Kang, and Kung Lao, there are a few other secret 
characters waiting to be unlocked for use in the single player game as 
well as the VS. Mode.  Sure, the graphics may be a little rough around 
the edges, but the exciting gameplay is what really adds to the 
atmosphere of this well-crafted game.  I strongly urge anyone, fan of 
Mortal Kombat or not, to at least rent the game and give it a try.  I’m 
certain you won’t regret it.  Earthrealm is in dire need of saving and 
it is up to Kang and Lao to do it.  So sharpen your hats and perfect 
your turkey screams, the minions of Outworld await you.

[II. The Story of Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks]
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^>^


(Taken from the Instruction Booklet):

     “In the final battle of the first Mortal Kombat tournament, Liu 
Kang defeated Shang Tsung and saved Earthrealm for domination.  But in 
the confusion of a mysterious earthquake, Shang Tsung and his fellow 
conspirators escaped through a portal to Outworld.  Kung Lao, who had 
been posing as a Masked Guard, helped his fellow Shaolin Monk escape 
the crumbling island.  Liu Kang and his allies narrowly escaped with 
their lives.”

     “When they returned home, the Wu Shi Academy was invaded by Baraka 
and his Tarkatan horde in an attempt to defy the rules of Mortal Kombat 
and take Earthrealm by force.  Although the Shaolin Monks fended off 
the invastion, Raiden sensed a deeper conspiracy and urged the Shaolin 
Monks to defeat Shang Tsung in Outworld.  Will they succeed?  Or will 
they succumb to Shang Tsung’s evil plot?”


     Continuing in the footsteps of Deadly Alliance and Deception 
before it, Shaolin Monks presents the player with one of the most 
satisfying and downright cool opening FMV sequences I have ever seen.  
Below is a detailed description of what occurs:

     The FMV starts out in Shang Tsung’s Palace at the tail end of the 
first Mortal Kombat; Tsung is sitting in his throne watching the action 
unfold.  It is every man for himself with Johnny Cage fighting Reptile, 
Scorpion and Sub-Zero battling it out as well as Kano and Sonya going 
at it.  Scorpion and Sub-Zero are then shown fighting each other.  
Scorpion punches Sub-Zero in the face causing him to reel back.  Sub-
Zero shakes it off and freezes Scorpion; Zero proceeds to kick the 
frozen Scorpion to the ground.  Kano comes up behind Zero and punches 
him in the face causing Sonya to attack and kick Kano around.  Kano 
gains the upper hand on Sonya so Johnny Cage comes to her rescue 
backflip-kicking Kano to the ground.  With Kano downed, Cage puts on 
his sunglasses only to have Reptile lash out his tongue and wrap it 
around Cage’s neck pulling him over. Reptile proceeds to munch on 
Cage’s head causing massive amounts of blood to spill out.  Out of 
nowhere, Liu Kang comes up from behind Reptile and kicks him in the 
head causing him to release Johnny Cage’s neck.  A dumbfounded Shang 
Tsung stands up and prepares to fight.
     Tsung motions for his Masked Guards to attack, but Kang quickly 
uppercuts one in the face and runs up the other’s bladed staff only to 
Bicycle Kick him in the face.  Tsung proceeds to jump at Kang only to 
be met with a kick to the face.  Tsung then punches Kang away, and 
shoots a flaming skull at him.  Kang dodges it and the skull smashes 
into a pillar turning it to debris.  Tsung then morphs into Kano and 
does his cannonball move into Kang sending him falling backward and 
onto his back.  Tsung jumps high into the air and lands hard on Liu 
Kang’s chest.  He then starts to steal his soul.  With Kang’s soul 
slowly being drained from his body, one of the Masked Guards jump kicks 
Tsung away from Liu.  The camera cuts to the doorway of the palace 
where we see a couple Tarkata (one of them presumably Baraka) rushing 
in.  The Masked Guard turns around revealing his blade trimmed hat 
meaning only one thing, Kung Lao!  Lao proceeds to whip his hat at the 
incoming Tarkata decapitating one of them; the hat comes back like a 
boomerang and Kung Lao places it onto his head as the announcer says, 
“Kung Lao” in his ever so awesome voice.  Kung Lao then pummels the 
other Tarkata (Baraka) only to be double-teamed by Scorpion.  Soon 
after, Sub-Zero comes to Lao’s aid and fights off Sub-Zero; Zero then 
dodges an attack from a Masked Guard.  With one of the guards dizzied, 
Sub-Zero proceeds to rip out his skull with his spinal cord still 
attached.  He then throws the head and spinal cord into Scorpion 
sending him reeling.  Tsung and Liu Kang now stand face to face.
     Shang Tsung quickly gets the upper hand with a few quick punches 
and kicks.  Liu Kang backs him off only to see Tsung morph into 
Scorpion.  Scorpion (Shang Tsung) shoots out his patented spear with a 
loud “Get over here!”  With the spear deeply embedded in Kang’s chest, 
Tsung pulls Liu over to deliver a stiff uppercut sending him hard on 
his back.  Scorpion (Tsung) then takes off his mask to reveal a skull 
and starts to breathe fire, but luckily Liu Kang dodges it.  Liu takes 
this opportunity to start pummeling Shang Tsung with every punch he 
lands, Tsung temporarily morphs into another character including Kano 
and Sonya.  With Tsung reeling, Liu Kang performs his flying kick 
straight into Shang’s chest sending him backward and through a pillar.  
With Shang Tsung down, the camera cuts to a semi-hidden doorway.  The 
screen starts to shake and we hear low rumbles getting louder and 
louder.  That can only mean one thing, Goro!  Goro lumbers into the 
main hall getting attacked by everyone to no effect.  Johnny Cage even 
does his Shadow Kick straight into his chest, with no effect; Goro just 
picks him up, pummels him and tosses Cage across the room.  Shang Tsung 
takes this opportunity to run to the back of the room and summon a 
portal to Outworld.  With his portal summoned, he jumps in followed by 
Goro, Reptile, Scorpion and Kano.  As the portal slowly fades, so does 
the entire island.  As Shang Tsung’s palace crumbles, a massive crevice 
begins to develop.  Liu Kang and Kung Lao eventually fall into this 
crevice; they end up landing in Goro’s Lair.  Thus the adventure that 
is Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks begins.

[III. PlayStation 2 and Xbox Default Kontrols]
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^>^

     There are many different buttons to learn and master in Mortal 
Kombat Shaolin Monks; every button on the controller is used.  There 
are the four basic face buttons along with combinations of these 
buttons.  For example in the Xbox version: if the player holds the R 
Trigger and hits X with Liu Kang, he will shoot a fireball.  As the 
player kills enemies he accrues experience.  These experience points 
can be used to purchase new special moves, new kombos etc.  More on the 
experience system is in Section V.  In the end, this section covers the 
immediately available attacks and the basic controls.

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^
|Advanced Moves|
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^

     In addition to the basic default attacks, Shaolin Monks has a set 
of advanced maneuvers that require a modifier button.  Below is every 
advanced maneuver and how to perform them.

-->Throws: Black Button (Xbox), R2 Button (PlayStation 2)
     When approaching an enemy, tapping the Throw Button will have Liu 
Kang or Kung Lao grab the enemy and throw them.  Pointing the analog 
stick in a certain direction will throw the enemy in that direction.  
Along with throwing enemies, this button will pick up weapons on the 
ground.

-->Enemy Manipulations: Hold R Trigger and tap Black Button (Xbox), 
Hold R1 Button and tap R2 (PlayStation 2)
     Holding this combination of buttons will grab an enemy.  After 
grabbing an enemy, the player can take control of them and use them as 
a human shield.  As the game progresses, the player can purchase 
upgraded manipulation attacks.

-->Special Attacks: Hold R Trigger and tap 1 of the 3 basic attack 
buttons (X,Y or B/Xbox), Hold R1 Button and tap 1 of the 3 basic attack 
buttons (Square, Triangle, or Circle/PlayStation 2)
     Holding the modifier button and tapping any of the three basic 
attack buttons performs a Special Move.  These special moves vary 
depending on which character the player is currently using.  Below are 
both characters’ Special Move combinations. *NOTE* Each character has a 
blue energy bar under their main health bar.  As the player uses 
special moves and attacks, the bar depletes.  It recharges 
automatically after a few seconds. *NOTE*

-Liu Kang:

R Trigger+X - Fireball
R Trigger+Y - Uppercut
R Trigger+B – Flying Kick

R1 Button+Square - Fireball
R1 Button+Triangle - Uppercut
R1 Button+Circle – Flying Kick

-Kung Lao:

R Trigger+X - Teleport
R Trigger+Y – Cyclone Spin
R Trigger+B – Hat Throw

R1 Button+Square - Teleport
R1 Button+Triangle – Cyclone Spin
R1 Button+Circle  - Hat Throw

-->Blocks: Hold L Trigger (Xbox), Hold L2 Button (PlayStation 2)
     Holding the Lock-On/Block Button will block any incoming attacks 
by an enemy.  If the player is hit while blocking, some of their blue 
energy bar depletes; if the bar is empty, the block will not work.

-->Lock-On: Hold L Trigger (Xbox), Hold L2 Button (PlayStation 2)
     Holding the Lock-On/Block button and not getting attack will focus 
the characters point of view on the nearest enemy.  While locked on to 
an enemy, the player character will strafe around their enemy.  The 
Right Analog is used to change which enemy the player is locked onto.

-->Evades: Hold L Trigger and tap A (Xbox), Hold L2 Button and tap X 
(PlayStation2)
     Holding the Lock-On/Block Button and pressing the Jump Button will 
cause the player character to evade in any direction.  This is useful 
for obvious incoming attacks/projectiles that are easily dodge able.

-->Multi-directional Kombat:
     Multi-directional kombat is one of the things that sets Shaolin 
Monks apart from other 3-d beat-em-ups.  After starting a combo, the 
player can use the left analog stick to change which direction his or 
her attacks will go next.  This is infinitely useful when the player is 
surrounded by enemies and attacking them in succession is necessary.

-->Fatality Attack: White Button (Xbox), L1 Button (PlayStation 2)
     When the player builds up his/her Fatality Meter, (the orb that 
fills up with blood as the player connects successful kombos) he/she 
can hit the Fatality Button to enter “Fatality Mode.”  While in this 
mode, the player is prompted to enter a series of button taps to 
perform a desired Fatality.  The player must have unlocked a Fatality 
first in order to “use” it.

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>
|Weapon Kombat|
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>

     Weapons can be found scattered throughout many of Shaolin Monk’s 
areas.  Some are found lying on the ground while others are found as 
part of an environment.  These weapons can be used for solving certain 
puzzles (e.g. a sword in one level cuts down ropes holding lava needed 
to burn Tarkatan warriors) or can be used to attack enemies directly.  
There are two ways to use a weapon – straight up attacking, or impaling 
an enemy.  The basic attacks with weapons correspond to the 3 basic 
attack buttons; also impaling (Black Button Xbox, R2 Button PlayStation 
2) an enemy with a weapon, will cause damage over time.  The weapon 
will stay imbedded in an enemy until they die.  There are 3 weapon 
classes as well.  Two-Handed Blades, One-Handed Blades, and Dual-
Weapons.  As expected Two-Handed weapons are slower, but do more 
damage.  The opposite can be said about One-Handed weapons.  Dual-
Weapons get the best of both worlds, being fast and inflicting decent 
damage.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>
[V. Experience System and Pick-Ups]
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>

--> Experience System:
     Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks employs an experience system (not 
unlike most RPGs these days) that rewards players for performing high 
hitting combos and Fatalities.  Attacking an enemy starts your combo 
counter.  Consecutive hits on the same foe or multiple foes builds a 
number on the left side of the screen denoting how many hits have 
landed.  If there is too long of a break between attacks (maybe 1 or 1 
and a half seconds) the combo is broken and the counter resets to 1 on 
the next successful attack.  Once your combo string hits 10, (and any 
increment of 10 from then on in) an EXP multiplier comes into play, 
multiplying the total number of EXP points you will receive by x2, x3, 
x4 etc.  It is not wise to save up these points until the end of the 
game and then purchase every move.  Spend them liberally, as there 
should be no shortage of bad guys to kill; hey, having new and powerful 
Special Moves never hurt anyone, right?
     Accumulating these EXP points isn’t just for show as they allow 
you to purchase move upgrades for your respective character (Liu Kang 
or Kung Lao).  Each character starts out with three “basic” Special 
Moves.  Gaining enough EXP points allows you to purchase additional 
moves (most times they are an upgrade of previously available moves).  
Purchasing these move upgrades is absolutely essential, as the baddies 
featured throughout the game become progressively harder and without 
new and powerful moves at your disposal, you’re all but dead.  In the 
“Advanced Moves, Special Moves and Weapon Kombat” section, (the one 
right above this one) there are detailed descriptions of the different 
types of move upgrades available to players pending they have enough 
EXP points.


--> Pick-Ups
     Just like in most action-adventure games, there are numerous Pick-
Ups scattered around the world you are exploring.  Below is a quick 
list of the Pick-Ups featured in Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks.


> Small Health – These small green orbs are mostly found in smashable 
objects (small lanterns, piles of skulls etc.)  They restore a very 
small portion of your health.

> Medium Health – These medium sized green orbs are mostly obtained 
after defeating bad guys.  When they die, the orbs they drop float to 
you replenishing a medium amount of health.  Medium Health orbs can 
also be found in smashable objects scattered about, though they are 
rare.

> Green Orb – “Regular” green orbs lying about are EXP orbs.  They are 
dropped from bosses and like medium and small healths, can be found in 
smashable objects.  They come in varying sizes; anywhere from 50 EXP to 
500 EXP.

> Red Ying Yang Symbol – These symbols are usually placed in hard to 
reach areas requiring the player to use one of their special abilities 
to obtain.  Once acquired, they unlock special bonus content including 
Arena Art, Fatality Input images, secret characters etc.

> Blue Mortal Kombat Dragon Symbol – These little coins are found 
scattered about during the early stages of the game.  Running into one 
summons Raiden who provides helpful hints to help you throughout your 
journey.

> Gold Mortal Kombat Dragon Symbol – These babies are usually “dropped” 
after a boss battle.  They bestow upon the player a new ability, Wall 
Jump for example, or a new Fatality move.

     This section will contain all the Special Moves and Fatalities for 
the two main characters, Liu Kang and Kung Lao.  Note that all of the 
Special Moves can be upgraded to a maximum level of 5 (some can only be 
upgraded to level 3).  The Fatalities are unlocked as you progress 
through the Adventure Mode of the game.  Section X will contain the 
Move and Fatality Lists for each of the secret characters.  Note I am 
listing these Move Lists using the Xbox buttons.  If you are playing 
the PS2 version here is a quick legend (The button on the left is the 
Xbox button and the button after the “=” sign is the PS2 button): X = 
Square, Y = Triangle, B = Circle, A = X, L = L1, R = R1, and Black = 
R2.

[VII. Walkthrough]
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^

     The adventure that is Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks begins mere 
seconds after the opening FMV sequence concludes.  We see our heroes 
fall into the depths of Goro’s Lair.  After orienting themselves, 
Raiden appears with some choice words of advice.
     Raiden goes on to say that the monks won the first Mortal Kombat 
tournament and that Shang Tsung is a poor loser.  He warns us that we 
need to exit Goro’s Lair before the island crumbles into the sea.  Our 
main objective is to head to the Wu Shi Academy. *NOTE* I went through 
this game as Liu Kang meaning there may be some MINOR differences if 
you play through with Kung Lao. *NOTE*


<^>^<^>^<^>^<
|Goro’s Lair|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>


>  Area 1:

     Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the kontrols; they 
take a little getting used to.  When you are ready, head to the middle 
of the lair and pick up the Blue Dragon Token.  Liu Kang looks around 
and sees menacing eyes staring back at him through the blackness.  
Moments later, many Moloch looking creatures (Oni, or demons) emerge.  
Before we get a chance to fight them, Raiden says that we should learn 
to use quick attacks, launching attacks, power attacks and throws.  
Follow Raiden’s words of advice, and use these attacks to dispatch the 
Oni that appear.
     Once the initial batch of enemies is disposed of, another Blue 
Dragon Token appears.  Touch it and Raiden tells you to perform your 
special moves.  Do what he says to dispatch of the new Oni that appear.  
Note that there are skulls and various bones littered throughout this 
area.  These can be picked up and thrown at the Oni; they don’t do much 
damage, but are fun anyway.
-->*Red Ying/Yang Token*: Also of note, if you throw one of the Oni 
into the skeleton hanging on the wall, a red ying/yang icon appears.  
Pick it up to unlock new concept art.
     Once these two Oni are killed, walk to the right side of the 
screen and pick up the next Blue Dragon Token.  Raiden informs you that 
you are able to perform certain attacks while running.  Another Oni 
lumbers out for you to try your new running attacks on.  Once he is 
disposed of the gate on the right side of the screen opens.  Follow it 
into the next area.


>  Area 2:

     This area closely resembles the starting area.  Once you enter, 
gates close all around you.  Grab the Blue Dragon Token to hear Raiden 
talk about blocking and evading.  Oni then drop down to attack.  The 
on-screen directions say to block an enemy attack in order to progress.  
There are an infinite amount of enemies here, so do what the directions 
say.  After the Oni is downed, head to the right to pick up another 
Blue Dragon Token.  
     After touching the token, Kung Lao warns the player as three Oni 
attack you from all sides.  Liu Kang fights them all off using Multi-
Directional kombat which allows the player to fight multiple enemies at 
the same time.  Three more Oni lumber through an opening.  Use this new 
form of kombat to kill them.  Once they are dead, a gate opens on the 
left side of the screen.  Another Blue Dragon Token lays there for the 
taking.  Raiden then informs the player about air kombat.  Two more Oni 
appear from the depths.  Dispatch them to continue.
-->*Red Ying/Yang Token*: There is a token in this room right above the 
entrance.  To reach this tough secret, you must launch an Oni into the 
air.  While they are airborne, throw them.  This should give you enough 
height to reach the token. 
     The right side of the screen contains another Blue Dragon Token.  
Touch it and Raiden talks about weapon kombat.  A sword then appears on 
the ground.  Pick it up and get used to its kontrols.  Dispatch of the 
Oni with it to continue.  After they perish, the gate on the right side 
of the screen opens.  Enter it to continue.


>  Area 3:
  
     A quick cut-scene surveys the surrounding area.  It turns out we 
are in the bottom of The Pit!  To the right are very sharp spikes that 
the player should watch out for.  Ahead are a couple Oni; they should 
be no problem especially if you still have the sword handy from the 
previous area.  Also of note, if you throw an enemy near the spikes 
they will land on them, killing them instantly.  Realize however, that 
killing an enemy this way yields no EXP.  
     Another cut-scene shows Johnny Cage uppercut an Oni onto the 
spikes from a platform above.  He points to the way off the island.  
Begin by jumping on the ledge to the right.  Kill the Oni and follow 
the path left.  Jump up these two ledges and continue right.  There are 
four platforms that you must jump to.  The fourth one leads up to 
another ledge where Johnny Cage was.  A fun little side note: if you 
remember from Mortal Kombat 1’s Pit stage, there was the silhouette of 
a witch on her broom flying across the moon.  Well in Shaolin Monks she 
makes her return.  Watch the moon in the background to catch a glimpse 
of her.
     Once you start crossing the platform Cage was on, Reptile appears.  
He goes on to say that he does not serve Shang Tsung and promptly 
disappears.  Oni begin attacking here.  They should be pretty easy as 
all you have to do is throw them off the ledge onto the spikes below.  
Continue along the ledge into the dark cave at then end.


>  Area 4:

     This room looks similar to the first few rooms of the game.  It is 
different in that there are blood pools coming from all four corners of 
the room, leading to the center.  There is also another Dragon Token 
floating above the blood pool.  Pick it up to obtain a Fatality.  
Raiden informs us we must perform a Fatality in order to open the 
gates.  But first we need to build up our Fatality Meter by performing 
combos.  So, do just that on the three Oni that pop out.  When the 
meter is full hit the Fatality button to perform it.  
     -->*Fatality 1 (Liu Kang): Shaolin Soccer – Down, Left, Up, Right, 
X/Square.  Description: Liu Kang uppercuts his opponent’s head off.  
With the head airborne, Kang jumps up and kicks it hard into his enemy.  
The enemy proceeds to explode into blood and bone as Kang looks on.
     Once this is done, the door to the left opens.  Enter it to 
continue 
-->*Red Ying/Yang Token #1*: The first token is hidden behind a cell 
door.  The only way to obtain this secret is to be playing with two 
players.  In the following room are two switches.  Each player must 
stand on a switch to open the gate.
-->*Red Ying/Yang Token #2*: The second token is a bit tricky to get.  
If you notice, there is a chandelier hanging in the middle of this 
area.  You need to launch one of the Oni into the air.  While airborne, 
you must perform your Throw maneuver into it.  It comes crashing down 
revealing more concept art.  If you kill the enemies, don’t worry.  
Just exit the room and come back in.


>  Area 5:

     Upon entering this new area, a cut-scene shows four Oni munching 
on a dead one.  They playfully hit each other as they try to eat as 
much as they can.  Eventually they notice you and lumber over to 
attack.  Use all the moves you have learned thus far (especially 
Fatalities!) to dispatch of them pretty easily.  Once they are dead, 
run to the right side of the room.  Raiden then informs us that we need 
to throw an enemy into the broken down wall to progress.  There is also 
another Dragon Token over here.  Pick it up to get Raiden’s message 
again.  After throwing an enemy into the wall, run through it to reach 
the next area.
-->*Red Ying/Yang. Token*: There is another token on the far right side 
of this room above the weak wall.  Do the same thing as the chandelier 
to reach this icon.  Launch an Oni into the air, and while airborne 
throw him.  You should be able to reach the token that way.  It is a 
Fatality Input Image.


>  Area 6:

     This new area contains a Save Point immediately to the player’s 
right.  I would highly advise saving at this point.  After saving, 
start to head across the bridge.  A cut-scene then shows to Oni fall 
onto the bridge only to have two massive boulders fall onto their heads 
causing the bridge to give way.  Raiden then tells us to look around 
before trying something new.  “You never know what you might find.”  By 
clicking the thumbstick into panoramic view, we are shown that there is 
a ledge near the entrance to this area.  Head over to head and fall 
down a few ledges.  Once on the ground, a huge Oni breaks through the 
side of the cement wall.  He carries a big club and is surrounded by 
Oni minions.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^
{Boss – Oni Warlord}
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^

     Oni Warlord – This boss isn’t too hard as long as his minions are 
not near you when you attack the Warlord.  Try to kill them away from 
him and the spikes.  The fastest way to do that is to throw them onto 
the spikes.  The Warlord himself goes down pretty fast if you use a 
combination of weak attacks and launchers (he won’t get launched but, 
they do a fair bit of damage).  Watch out for the big club he carries 
around as it can cause massive damage if you are directly hit.  His 
swings are pretty easy to detect though.  So evading them is essential.  
He has a big overhead smash (which can hit his minions, if he misses 
you) and a twirl around attack that has a pretty big radius.  Just keep 
on him, and you’ll eventually kill him.

     After the boss dies, he leaves behind a Dragon Token.  Pick it up 
to learn the Long Jump Ability.  If you haven’t guessed it already, you 
need to head back up to the broken down bridge and long jump across it.  
Just use the ledges on the side of the pit to get back up there.  Save 
again if you like, then head across the bridge.  Once halfway across, a 
cut-scene shows you to be surrounded by two Masked Guards.  Liu Kang 
Bicycle Kicks one away.  Raiden then chimes in saying that they hold 
the key to the only portal on the island.  
     These enemies are a bit tougher than the Oni in that they block a 
lot.  I try to just use my Fatalities against them as they are 1-hit 
kills.  But dodging their attacks and following up with a high hitting 
juggle kombo works just as well.  Once you have the key, run toward the 
lightning portal.  Jump into it to be transported to the Wu Shi 
Academy.

     A cut-scene shows a pristine chain of islands with the narrator 
explaining the history of Mortal Kombat II and the rise to power of 
Shao Kahn in Outworld.  We stop at the Wu Shi Academy where we see 
Johnny Cage, Sonya, Liu Kang and Kung Lao standing before Raiden.  He 
has a monk following him around carrying four Olympic style medals.  
Raiden places one around Liu’s neck.  Sonya also gets one for her good 
duties.  Johnny Cage gets one also for being a valuable ally to Raiden 
and the Shaolin Order.  Kung Lao receives a medal for standing up for 
his family heritage.  
     All of a sudden Baraka orders his Tarkatan brethren to launch a 
flaming spiked ball into the courtyard of the Wu Shi Academy.  They 
break open the front most doors and start attacking random monks.  
Raiden orders Liu Kang and Kung Lao to defend the academy.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^
|Wu Shi Academy|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^


>  Area 1: 

      We start this new area in what appears to be forest surrounding 
the academy.  Next to the player is a small lantern which can be broken 
for a sliver of health.  Once you are ready, head down the path toward 
the stream in the distance.  Two Tarkatan minions ambush you from the 
bushes.  These baddies can be pretty tough thanks to their amazing 
speed and powerful blades; they also have Baraka’s patented Blade Spark 
move, which should be avoided.  I recommend fighting them one at a 
time.  As with the Masked Guards, use Fatalities as often as possible.    
    Once they are downed, continue on the path toward another Tarkata.  
Once he is dead, (you can use the spikes sticking out of the hills for 
an easy kill) continue on down the path.  You eventually end up at an 
intersection with the left path leading to spikes and the right path 
leading to a bridge.  The left path is inaccessible as of now because 
we don’t have the Fist of Ruin move yet.  So head right.  As you start 
to cross the bridge, a cut-scene shows a huge boulder slamming into the 
top of the bridge.  If you are caught under it as it collapses, you 
take damage; so watch out for that.  Across the bridge you will witness 
another cut-scene that shows a Tarkatan warrior fling a helpless monk 
onto a catapult.  He is then flung into oblivion.  
     Proceed forward and engage these Tarkatan bullies in Mortal 
Kombat.  If you are good at aiming your throws, you can actually toss 
one of the baddies onto the same catapult as the monk.  Once they are 
dead, head up the slopes to the left near the fire breathing dragon 
(the right side with the Masked Guard is not accessible yet).  At the 
top of the slopes and to the right, you will see a Tarkata standing in 
front of a pile of spiked balls.  The object here is to throw him into 
the balls sending them below breaking the wall near the Masked Guard.  
With that done, head back to the broken down wall.  Near the slopes and 
fire breathing statue, portal in two more Tarkatan warriors.  Take them 
down and proceed past the broken wall.
     Around the bend, another Tarkata awaits.  You need to throw this 
guy up into the catapult behind him.  Once that’s done he is flung into 
another barricade near where you threw the other Tarkata threw the 
spiked balls.  Head back up that way and through the broken barricade.  
Two more Tarkatan warriors portal in here.  Throw one of them threw the 
spiked ball barricade.  Kill the other one and return to where you 
broke the first barricade.
     Prepare to engage in a little old-school platforming.  What stands 
before you is a pit of spikes with pieces of land in the middle of 
them.  The land pieces have fire breathing statues on them, so timing 
is of the essence.  Time your jumps right and land on the other side.  
Jump onto the rubble and onto the bridge.  Head all the way down it to 
the right and exit this area.

>   Area 2:
     
     A cut-scene shows Sonya upset that many monk has been slaughtered.  
She sees one limping around.  Baraka then drops down and cuts him into 
pieces.  Sonya and Baraka engage in kombat.  Sonya kicks him around.  
Baraka then trips her up, slams her into a wall, picks her up and jumps 
into a portal.
     When you regain control of your character, drop down to the ground 
below.  Three Tarkatan warriors will portal in and charge.  You are 
lucky though, as Johnny Cage is around for the next little while to 
help you out.  Also, by this time, you should have enough experience 
points to purchase some new abilities.  To do so, hit Start and scroll 
over to the Moves tab.  Here, you will be able to power up specific 
moves.  If you are playing with Liu Kang, I recommend buying the 
High/Low Fireball for 3000 points as well as the Bicycle Kick for 
another 3000 points.
     Anyway, back to the action.  Take out the three Baraka-lites and 
continue on.  Ignore the two depressible plates to the left of the 
screen as that puzzle can only be solved if you are playing ko-op.  
Listen to Johnny Cage and follow him/run to the back of the Academy and 
through the small tunnel.  A short cut-scene follows with three 
Tarkatan warriors ambushing you.  Johnny Cage yells to protect him 
while he opens the gate.  Kill these baddies and the gate will open in 
front of you.  A cut-scene shows part of the academies wall has 
collapsed.  Johnny Cage then tells you to protect him as he opens the 
gate.  
     Directly to the left of the screen is a little indentation which 
you can climb up on.  Follow this path along until you reach Cage, but 
watch out for spiked balls being hurled at you off-screen.  Another 
three Tarkatas show up to make your life miserable.  Kill them before 
they have a chance to attack Cage.  One they are defeated, Johnny tells 
you to follow him to open the center gate.  Run back the way you came 
and drop back down into the center courtyard.  Here you find Johnny 
Cage trying to open the center gate with ANOTHER three Tarkatan 
warriors attacking.  Take them out before they can take Cage out.  Some 
will probably still be alive by the time cage opens the gate.  Inside 
the gate Cage opens (you need to run back to the start of this area to 
get to it) is a sword which is used to cut the rope of cauldrons of 
lava.  But first pick up the Dragon Token which gives your character a 
health upgrade; in other words it extends your life bar.  Now that you 
have gotten that, pick up the sword and head back to the main 
courtyard.
     More Tarkata will have warped in so help Cage fend them off.  Once 
they are defeated climb up the small pillar like objects near the small 
pond.  Once at the top, begin to slice the ropes holding the cauldrons 
in place.  Once sliced, a cut-scene will play showing Lao and Kang 
knocking over the cauldrons causing many a Tarkata being drowned by the 
scalding hot lava.  A gate to a new area of the academy is now 
accessible as well.  Jump back down to the main courtyard and run 
through the left tunnel and all the way down the path exiting this area 
for now. (Cage should be following you).

>   Area 4:
     
     A cut-scene will then play showing two Tarkata surrounding Raiden 
who easily dispatches them.  Shang Tsung then floats down with Raiden 
calling him a traitor.  They begin to rush each other and an explosion 
occurs.  We are now back to actual gameplay.
     Jump down the small hill in front of you and head to the right.  
Here, you will encounter a few fire-breathing statues which you can 
easily dodge.  Keep following this path until you exit this area.

>   Area 5:
     
     Another short cut-scene will play showing that many parts of the 
Wu Shi Academy are now engulfed in flames.  It is your job to put the 
fires out.  When you enter this area, the gate with which you entered 
through shuts.  You are stuck.  This area is packed with random monks 
who have caught on fire.  Avoid them as best as possible, as if they 
run into you, you will be harmed; don’t try to attack them as that has 
the same effect.  Past the first wall of flames, you will see a second 
wall.  “Inside” this wall of fire is a lever which we need to pull.  So 
carefully jump over the flames and hit the Interact Button.  Harkening 
back to Mortal Kombat I/Deadly Alliance a “Test Your Might” mini-game 
will begin.  You will have to tap the A/X button as fast as you can to 
raise the meter past a predetermined line.  Once past the line, tap the 
L/L1 Trigger to break the lever.  Once that is done, a gate will rise 
and a steady flow of water will flow along the upper catwalks of the 
academy dousing a nearby house, causing all fire to cease.
     Jump back out of the walls of flame and jump onto the roof of the 
house that was doused; once there, jump onto the catwalk.  Once on the 
catwalk, jump up to the ledged on the left and then onto the pillar.  
Once here, another “Test Your Might” mini-game will begin.  Follow the 
same instructions as before.  Once that lever is destroyed, another 
flow of water will douse a portion of the catwalk that was on fire.  
Jump back down, and run along the now fire-free catwalk.  Jump up the 
ledge and up to another catwalk.  Another lever waits here.  You know 
what to do :)  With that lever now destroyed, yet another portion of 
the catwalk is doused.  Jump down to the other side of the catwalk and 
since we don’t have the Fist of Ruin ability yet, jump off the ledge in 
front of you.  Jump up the ledge and onto the top of yet another 
pillar.  Break the lever and more water will put out more fire, what a 
surprise.  Jump down the other side of the pillar and follow the water 
flow to the end.  To your right, you will see the roof of a house.  
Jump onto that roof and again onto the house across from it.  Jump up 
to the top of this area and kill the Tarkata.  Break the lever (for the 
last time!) and a massive gate will open to let out a strong flow of 
water to finally put out all the flames on the ground.
     With all those flames doused, jump back down there and a cut-scene 
will play with Lao, Kang and Cage.  Once that is over, run back out the 
way you came in originally through the tunnel to the left.  

>   Area 6:     

     An FMV will play showing Johnny Cage (Shang Tsung morphed into 
him) walking cautiously through a forest.  He then sees Liu Kang and 
Kung Lao fighting playfully.  Lao and Kang then see Raiden (Tsung) step 
out of the woods and tell them that Shang Tsung is aiding the Tarkatas 
in their mission.  Raiden (Tsung) tells Liu and Kung to go to Outworld 
and continue their mission there.  
     When you regain control of your character, you will be back in the 
area with the fire-breathing statues.  Carefully navigate past them and 
continue left until you can drop down a ledge near a wall of spikes.  
Once down there, a couple Tarkatas pop out to play.  Dispatch of them 
and jump down the small ledge in front of you.  Here, you will 
encounter swinging barbed tree trunks.  Carefully dodge them (they 
swing pretty slow, so it shouldn’t be too hard).  Once past those, you 
will be faced with two Masked Guards.  They should be pretty easy as 
long as you stay locked onto them to block.  Once they attack and you 
block, follow up with a nice kombo, or pull off a Fatality.  Once both 
are dead, lightning will strike allowing you to run up a small hill.  
At the top, to the left is a save point.  I highly recommend saving at 
this time.  Once you have saved, jump into the menacing portal to the 
right of the save point.  As you are about to jump however, Raiden 
appears and questions the “safety” of the portal; it was created by 
Shang Tsung.  He then goes on to say that he will make it safe for Lao 
and Kang to enter.  All three jump in; Johnny Cage follows behind them 
after making sure no one is looking.  Raiden parts with a few choice 
words of wisdom and disappears.  


<^>^<^>^<^>^
|The Portal|
<^>^<^>^<^<^

     Once you regain control of your character, you will be faced with 
two Shadow Priests (from the portal background in Mortal Kombat II).  
These guys can be kind of tough as they can teleport, shoot purple 
balls of energy, and strike you with lightning.  As long as you block 
and are quick enough to dodge their projectiles, they should go down 
pretty quick.  You can also (if you are playing with Liu Kang, just 
Flying Kick them into the portal in which you entered killing them 
instantly, but yielding no experience).  With the two Shadow Priests 
down, follow the path to the right. (going left here, will lead you to 
a puzzle that is ko-op only.  For those of you playing ko-op, go right 
instead and have each of your characters stand on the pressure 
sensitive plates.  A ledge will begin to protrude from the column.  
Jump up there to receive Johnny Cage as playable in the VS. Mode).
     When the path splits, take the uppermost path and Long Jump the 
gap.  Once on the other side, jump up the ledge and two Demon Captains 
attack.  These guys are also pretty easy if you block their projectiles 
and follow up with kombo juggles.  Once they are dead continue on down 
the path until you reach the end.  A portal appears.  Enter it to 
arrive at the Evil Monastery.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^
|Evil Monastery|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^


>   Area 1:
     
     A cut-scene shows Kitana beckoning us to find and attack her.  Run 
up the steps to the actual monastery itself and another cut-scene 
occurs.  Raiden appears and says that Kitana is actually an ally to us 
and that we should seek her out.  Lao questions this, and Raiden 
explains that Outworld is not always as it once was.  
     When you regain control of your character, run into the main room.  
Three Demon Archers will burst through the windows on the upper level.  
These guys can be pretty annoying.  Just try and keep an eye on them at 
all times as they have a habit of shooting you with their arrows while 
you are in the middle of a kombo.  Once they are dispatched of, run up 
the stairs and a Demon Captain drops down; another one appears shortly 
thereafter.  Kill them and pull the lever with another “Test Your 
Might” mini-game.  The lever then activates spikes that protrude from 
the top of two empty cauldrons back on the first floor.  Go back down 
there (the room is now populated with baddies) and throw two of them 
onto each of the set of spikes.  With that done, a door on the upper 
level opens.  Dispatch of any remaining bad guys and go through the 
door and up the stairs.  *Golden Dragon Token* There is a Dragon Token 
outside one of the upstairs windows.  All one needs to do is break the 
glass, by shooting it with a projectile or throwing a bad guy through 
it.  To obtain the koin, repeat that same process (fire a projectile at 
it, fireball with Kang, hat with Lao, or throw an enemy at the koin 
itself.  Doing so will reveal a Red Ying/Yang symbol in that very room.  
Pick it up to unlock concept art.  (Thanks to Vegeto888, and the many, 
many other people who E-Mailed me in regards to this secret).

>   Area 2:
     
     Another cut-scene shows with Kitana taunting us yet again.  Follow 
the stairs up to the top (grabbing the Dual-Weapons if you wish) where 
we are faced with three Demon Archers and a Demon Handler.  I recommend 
killing all the archers first, as they pose the most problems with 
their arrows.  After they are dead, you may notice that there is no 
noticeable way of leaving this room.  That is where the spikes on the 
far side come into play.  You need to throw the Handler onto the spikes 
and jump onto his body to reach the top platform, clever eh?  His body 
disappears pretty quickly though, but don’t worry because there is a 
never ending spawn of bad guys to help you with this puzzle.  Once on 
the top platform, follow it up and around to another set of stairs.  
Run up them to exit this area.

>   Area 3:
     
     At the top of the stairs are a Demon Archer and two new bad guys 
with flaming swords.  It is probably wise to do a Fatality on one of 
the flaming sword guys to get him out of the way.  Then concentrate on 
the other two.  The flaming sword guys do a fair bit of damage with 
their sweeping attack and fire along the ground attack.  As always, 
block a lot and you should be fine.  Once that initial batch of guys is 
dead, a second batch appears.  Once that batch is dead, run up the two 
sets of stairs, along the catwalk and up another set of stairs to exit 
this area.

>   Area 4:
     
     A cut-scene shows Kitana yelling at us to keep up and not to be 
late at our own funeral.  Once the cut-scene ends pick up the Dragon 
Token; congratulations, you learned a Multality which instantly kills 
multiple enemies at one time.  We now need to perform one to progress 
any further.  With that, three Demon Captains fall from the ceiling.  
Proceed to beat the living hell out of them until Raiden tells you to 
hit the Fatality Button.  Once that is done, hit it and follow the on-
screen button commands to do the Multality.  With Liu Kang, he stands 
and begins to emit many fireballs from his body instantly tearing his 
enemies apart.  With the Multality now learned, jump up the couple of 
ledges and Long Jump across the gap.  A gate closes behind you and a 
Shadow Priest emerges from the ground along with two Demon Captains.  
Kill these guys and the gates drop allowing you to pass.  Long Jump 
across the gap on the opposite side you came from.  This time a Shadow 
Priest and three Demon Captains emerge.  For easy kills, just throw 
them off the edge of this area.  With all of them dead, Long Jump 
across the new gap.  Two Shadow Priests and two Demon Captains drop 
down to have fun.  Use Multality if you want, or throw them off the 
edge, it doesn’t matter.  Once they are dead, a gate lowers allowing 
you access to a couple ledges.  Watch out though, as Kitana tosses down 
entire stone columns while you are trying to traverse the ledges.  
Dodge them and continue on to the top.  A much needed save point 
awaits; so save your game and head up to the top of the monastery.

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>
{Boss – Kitana}
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>

     Once at the top another cut-scene occurs.  Kitana reveals she is 
the loyal daughter of Shao Kahn; since Liu and Lao are enemies of Shao 
Kahn, they are also enemies of hers.  Prepare to fight.  Kitana is not 
terribly difficult if you block and dodge her fan projectiles.  When 
she misses with a fan throw she will be a bit dazed; run up to her and 
pummel her with a nice air juggle.  Also, don’t get too close to her 
without blocking, as she will dice you up pretty good with a powerful 
fan kombo.  Once she is at about half health, she jumps into a portal.  
Raiden then appears saying that Kitana is under some sort of spell.  We 
must set her free.  Liu Kang and Kung Lao then jump into the portal 
after her.  

     We enter the portal and are immediately treated with a collapsing 
bridge.  In this cut-scene, Kitana tries to throw her fans at Liu 
Kang/Kung Lao, but he dodges them Matrix-style.  Kitana then jumps 
backward and begins to be enveloped by a statues gaze.  She is 
imprisoned there for the time being.  As she tries to get out, Jade and 
Mileena warp in from another portal.  Jade eventually releases Kitana 
as Mileena keeps Liu Kang occupied.  With Kitana freed, all three of 
them gang up on us.  A message from Raiden then appears telling us to 
weaken Kitana to set her back up on that device to imprison her.  But 
be careful, as Jade and Mileena will try to free her.  Once, the battle 
starts, all three of these lovely ladies attack us.

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<^>^<^>^
{Bosses – Mileena and Jade}
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^>^<^>^<^>^<

     Focus all your attacks on Kitana, keeping a watchful eye on 
Mileena and her teleport kick, as well as Jade’s fireball attack.  
After a few well landed hits on Kitana, a cut-scene plays showing your 
character hurl Kitana into the device once more.  While she is trapped, 
Mileena and Jade will attempt to free her; a little meter appears 
saying “Spell Time,” and once this meter fully depletes, Kitana is 
freed.  You must stop them; or the battle with continue unnecessarily.  
With Liu Kang, just Dragon Kick them away as they get close.  That is 
the easiest possible thing to do.  With Kung Lao, try his Teleport Kick 
or Hat Throw to back them off the contraption.  Once Kitana is freed 
from her spell, she faints and tells your character to kill Jade and 
Mileena.
     These two can be pretty tough to fight at the same time.  There is 
a trick however as evidenced by Raiden’s words of advice.  There are 
two circle areas surrounded by small spikes on the left and right sides 
of the screen.  If you knock one of the two Outworld Assassins into 
this area, a cage springs up from the ground, trapping them.  You only 
have to fight one of them at a time now; while they are trapped, you 
can walk up to the level outside the cage and play the “Test Your 
Might” mini-game again to inflict massive damage on them as well.  Take 
advantage of this.  Be weary of Mileena’s teleport kick, ground roll 
and sai throw as they all happen very fast and can leave you vulnerable 
to subsequent hits if not dodged; also be careful of that annoying 
purple fireball from Jade.  Once their health meters are depleted, they 
become stunned.  Once both are stunned, you will have to perform a 
Fatality to finish both off.  Hit the Fatality Button, input the 
combination and watch as Liu Kang whacks Mileena in the gut with Jade’s 
staff; Kang then proceeds to stab Mileena in the face with both of 
Mileena’s sais.

     A cut-scene plays where Kitana is introduced to Liu Kang and Kung 
Lao.  We learn that Shao Kahn is behind this attack.  Mileena is then 
brought forth for questioning.  She attacks all three of them, and runs 
off, not before yanking her sais out of Jade’s face however.  Kitana 
then runs off as well after Mileena.  After the cut-scene a Dragon 
Token appears.  Pick it up to learn the Fist of Ruin attack; powerful 
attacks now break some objects in the game world.  We have also 
obtained a Tournament Victory for defeating this opponent (more on the 
importance of those later).  Grab the experience orbs in front of you 
and jump into the portal to be warped back to the Monastery.  Raiden 
appears to tell us that every major victory we have in Outworld weakens 
Shang Tsung.  With Tsung weakened, his powers to attack Earth will not 
be as potent.  Backtrack all the way through the Evil Monastery to the  
point; save your game on the way back down to avoid any unnecessary 
backtracking).  As you make your way back through, you can put your 
Fist of Ruin ability to work.  You may have noticed big statues of 
monks standing around.  We can now break those with our new ability.  
They are scattered throughout this area, so break them all (they are 
pretty much in plain view).  Once at the bottom of the steps leading up 
to the Kitana battle, we see two statues guarding an ominous portal.  
Break the statues and enter the portal, to be warped to none other than 
The Portal!  

     A short cut-scene plays showing Reptile jump into a portal on the 
upper level.  Liu Kang and Kung Lao have a discussion as to who is 
going to kill him.  Kung Lao runs off, leaving Liu Kang by himself.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>
|The Portal II|
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>

     Once you regain control of your character, two Shadow Priests and 
a Demon Captain greet you. Kill these nuisances and follow the path up 
and around.  At the top of the little ramp, will be two Shadow Priests 
guarding a portal; dispatch of them, and enter the Living Forest.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>
|Living Forest|
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>


>   Area 1:

     Once here, a cut-scene appears.  Liu Kang and Kung Lao talk about 
Kitana and trying to find Reptile; they then split up.  Once you regain 
control, follow the path downward until you reach a statue.  Use your 
Fist of Ruin ability (B for Xbox, Circle for PS2) to smash it and 
continue.  Drop down the little ledge and prepare for kombat.  A Putrid 
Corpse rises out of the ground to attack you.  These guys are pretty 
easy as their attacks are slow and they shamble around like an old man; 
be careful however as they can actually vomit up blood which can hurt 
you.  Kill it (another one appears seconds after).  Watch out for the 
huge tree looming over the battlefield.  It can swipe at you and cause 
massive damage.  You can try to throw a Corpse into it and watch the 
tree smash it into the ground for extra damage.  You should also throw 
a Putrid Corpse into the Living Tree in the background (there are three 
of these total, and it allows you to progress once enemies have been 
thrown into them all).  The tree will then reveal a message: “Satisfy 
the forest’s cravings to pass.”  Watch out for the brambles on the 
right side of the screen as well.  With those baddies dead, use your 
Fist of Ruin ability to knock out the two statues standing in front of 
a wall of brambles; this causes the brambles to fall apart allowing you 
access to what was behind them.  
     As you cross into that new area toward the save point, 3 Putrid 
Corpses rise up.  If you have your Fatality Meter high enough, you can 
perform a Multality; if not just kill them regularly.  After they are 
dead, save your game.  After saving, run back out near the huge tree, 
and Long Jump over the brambles to the other side.  Two more Clay 
Statues are hear for you to break; one has nothing, the other contains 
some health.  Run forward and you will see shadows running across the 
ground up to you.  Out pop Brothers of Shadow.  These guys can be 
pretty tough as they are extremely fast and attack with their serrated 
blades which do some good damage.  You can try throwing them into the 
brambles you leaped across for extra damage.  Once they are dead, 
continue forward, where you will have to fight four more Brothers of 
Shadow.  I recommend building up your Fatality Meter to perform another 
Multality on these guys, as four at a time can be a little bit 
overwhelming.  Watch out for the living tree and the brambles on the 
far end of the screen.  With these guys dead, Long Jump over the 
brambles so you grab onto the ledge above them.  Enter the room to exit 
this area.

>   Area 2:

     In this new area, we are faced with two paths.  We can either 
continue forward or drop down a ledge or Long Jump over a gap with 
water flowing beneath it.  Both end up leading to the same place, so it 
doesn’t matter which way you go.  If you drop down the ledge, there 
will be a few snake monsters down there to bite you if you get to 
close.  After having crossed to the other side, two Putrid Corpses 
greet you.  There is another Living Tree here.  Throw a bad guy into 
it’s mouth to reveal another message: “The forest hungers for life.”  
Kill them and 2 of the Clay Soldiers guarding a doorway spring to life 
along with two new Corpses.  The only way to attack these Soldiers is 
to use your Fist of Ruin attack three times to break their shields; 
once those are broken, you can unload on them.  Watch out for their 
charging attack and their annoying ground pound, which sends you flying 
into the air.  For some easy kills, throw them off that ledge near the 
water, and just throw them into the brambles to kill them instantly.  
With everyone dead, enter the entrance closest to the waterfall 
(guarded by two prone statues).

>   Area 3:

     In this new area, we need to jump across the land strips to get to 
those stone statues.  Don’t fall into the water or the snake head will 
take a bite out of you.  Once on the other side, another tree comes to 
life to aggravate the hell out of everyone.  Two of the four Clay 
Soldiers also come to life to do kombat with you.  Just break their 
shields, and hit them with everything.  Once they are dead, you can 
break the other two statues for health if you like.  With those two 
dead, you will see small platforms of land sticking out of the water 
making a trail of sorts.  We need to traverse these small plots of land 
up to the waterfall.  With before, don’t fall into the water or you 
will get bitten by a snake.  On the last jump, you will need to Long 
Jump to make it.  Once to the waterfall, jump to the ledge on the left 
of it.  Continue making the jumps all the way to the top.  At the top 
enter the door where the water is flowing out of to exit this area.

>   Area 4:

     In this new area, continue forward into the water.  At this point, 
spikes shoot up on all sides and four snake heads appear.  To make 
matters worse, we have to deal with a couple Putrid Corpses.  To solve 
this “puzzle” one must throw the Putrid Corpses (there is a never 
ending supply of them) into the snake heads; the snakes proceed to 
throw them up into the air and catch them in their mouths.  They then 
lower under the water to feast on their tasty meal.  With the snake 
heads happy, the spikes surrounding the small pool of water will lower.  
Proceed onward and save your game.  Jump up the small ledge and head 
left if you need some health (break the two statues there).  With some 
health replenished continue up the right ledge and up the path.  Two 
Putrid Corpses drop down.  Throw one of them into the Living Trees 
mouth to get the third and last message, “Reptile’s secret lies within 
the trees.”  Cryptic, no?  Jump up the ledge on the left and into the 
snake head statue’s mouth to enter Reptile’s Lair.


<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^
|Reptile’s Lair|
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^

>   Area 1:

     Once you enter this area, a gate closes behind you.  Proceed 
forward and stand on the symbol in the middle of the room.  Small doors 
will open and Clay Soldiers will rush at you.  Once they get close 
enough, you must destroy them with a punch or kick.  You must break 
both at the same time to continue.  With those two dead, stand on the 
switch again and this time 4 statues will shoot out.  You have to be a 
little faster in attacking them to continue.  With those 4 broken, 
“prepare for more.”  Stand on the switch a third time and 5 will shoot 
out.  This is a bit tougher and requires patience.  When you break the 
last 5, a Dragon Token appears.  Pick it up to obtain the Brutality!  
With this new ability we can instantly kill multiple enemies for a 
short time.  With that, 4 Putrid Corpses erupt from the ground.  Pound 
the hell out of them until Raiden prompts you to hit the Fatality 
Button.  Hit it, and input the correct button commands.  Your character 
will now be on fire and pressing the various attack buttons do 
devastating damage to enemies.  With those enemies dead, proceed 
forward into the next area of Reptile’s Lair.  
        
>   Area 2:

     In this new area, we find ourselves in a long drippy tunnel with 
Clay Soldier statues everywhere; break all of these to reveal 
experience orbs and health orbs.  At the end of this semi-long tunnel, 
is a very narrow strip of land leading up to an entrance.  Carefully 
navigate this landing strip to the top; the steam rising from the 
depths can temporarily block your view.  At the top enter the door to 
exit the area.

>   Area 3:

     A cut-scene plays showing Liu Kang walk into a room full of holes 
in the wall.  The camera then pans out and we see Reptile standing on a 
ledge above the doorway we entered through.  Out of nowhere a gigantic 
snake (think Resident Evil style big) pops out of the wall.  Reptile 
jumps onto its head and drops down a hole in the middle of the room.  
The snake then knocks Liu Kang back and starts slithering along the 
ground.

<^>^<^>^<^>^<
|Boss – Snake|
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^

     The first part of this battle has the snake slithering all over 
the ground.  Don’t even try to attack it, you will just get hurt.  
Instead, target the pillar the snake is slithering around on (the one 
that is already damaged) and perform your Fist of Ruin attack.  Three 
hits should do the trick.  With that broken, the snake slithers out the 
main entrance and back in.  It is now moving all over the place through 
the various holes in the wall.  The rubble from the broken pillar 
allows us to jump onto the sections of ledge that surround the room.  
Once on those ledges, we can now target the next pillar; it has a weak 
section too.  Attack it three times with your Fist of Ruin ability to 
knock it out and cause another pathway to be revealed.
     With the second pillar knocked out, continue running and jumping 
across those ledges to get to the third pillar.  Watch out for the 
snake though as it slithers pretty fast in and out of the wall, hitting 
you if you’re not careful.  With the third pillar knocked out, we have 
to find our way to the fourth.  As your character is about to run up to 
it, the snake breaks through the ledge.  You will now have to Long Jump 
the gap when the snake is out of sight in the wall.  The fourth pillar 
breaks, and huge pieces of stone fall onto the snake killing it.  The 
rubble also falls into the ground creating a large hole to which your 
character falls into.  At the very bottom is Reptile!


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^
|Boss - Reptile|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^

     Reptile’s move set is pretty limited as he rarely attacks you hand 
to hand.  He mostly relies on his special moves from past Mortal 
Kombats, namely his slide move, invincibility move, and green acid spit 
move.  At times, he will vanish and appear at the top of a pile of 
rubble.  You cannot hit him while he is up there; he begins to shoots 
fireballs at you that do moderate damage if not dodged.  With Reptile 
at about half health, he turns completely invisible.  If you hit him, 
he will become visible again for a short time.  This can get pretty 
tough.  His head sometimes shows through to give you an idea of where 
he is.  His fireballs also are not invisible, so watch out for those; 
they can do massive damage if he hits you successfully more than once 
in a row.  With Reptile’s health depleted completely, the Fatality 
Button will appear.  Hit it and perform the button inputs.  
     Liu Kang (it’s different for Lao) will punch Reptile hard in the 
face sending him reeling.  Reptile will come back with a punch that Liu 
Kang dodges.  Kang then puts Reptile over his knee and proceeds to rip 
at his lover jaw eventually dislodging it.  Reptile falls to the ground 
almost dead.  With no mercy, Kang punches the hell out of Reptile and 
proceeds to squeeze his throat killing him by asphyxiation.  Reptile 
leaves behind a Dragon Token.  Pick it up to gain the Wall Climb 
ability.  Raiden tells us to use it to climb out of Reptile’s Lair.  We 
have also obtained another Tournament Victory.  Before you leave, pick 
up the many experience orbs littered about.  
     With all the experience collected, find the part of the dead snake 
closest to the wall.  Hit it with the Fist of Ruin to break it apart, 
leaving a way to climb up the wall.  Jump onto the wall and climb to 
the top of the sewer; exit this area afterward.  A cut-scene plays with 
Raiden telling us that killing Reptile was “very good.”  When you 
regain control, run out of the long tunnel and exit Reptile’s Lair.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^>^
|Living Forest II|
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^

     Back in the Living Forest, make your way back to the entrance.  On 
your way there, another cut-scene plays.  Raiden appears again and 
questions Kung Lao and calls him a “liability to the tournament.”  
Raiden trusts Liu Kang to fix the corruption of this realm.  Continuing 
on your way to the entrance yet another cut-scene shows with Raiden 
saying that the Soul Tombs are the source of Shang Tsung’s power and 
that his ancestor’s will guide him.  When you finally reach the save 
point (near the start of the Living Forest) save your game, and exit to 
The Portal.


<^>^<^>^<^>^>^<^
|The Portal III|
<^>^<^>^<^>^>^<^

     Once you enter the Portal for the third time, Raiden appears and 
prefaces the Soul Tombs saying that when someone perishes, their soul 
is brought to the tombs and “given” to Shang Tsung to feed his powers.  
Raiden asks the two of you to enter the Tombs and rid it of all souls 
to weaken Shang Tsung as much as possible.
     Once play resumes, take out the two Shadow Priests (a Flying Kick 
to the midsection off the ledge and into oblivion seems to work best).  
With those two dead, head down the rampway to an area with two Shadow 
Priests and another baddie.  Kill them if you want, but it is not 
necessary.  In the upper right of this area is a climbable wall (the 
Wall Climb finally being put to use).  Walk up to the wall and jump 
into it.  Liu, or Kung should automatically grab hold and start 
climbing.  As you are climbing, green skulls appear on either side of 
the wall and zoom at you.  If they make contact, you fall a little bit.  
They are pretty easy to dodge though.  Once you make it to the top, 
take care of the two Soul Priests and enter the portal to the Soul 
Tombs.


<^>^<^>^<^>^
|Soul Tombs|
<^>^<^>^<^>^

>   Area 1:

     Once transported in, run along the bridge and up into the 
cathedral looking thing with the Mortal Kombat Dragon Symbol adorning 
the middle of it.  Once inside, save your game if you wish.  This first 
room presents you with two possible rooms to enter: red or green.  We 
have to eventually complete both rooms, but I recommend clearing the 
red rooms first.  Clearing out the Tarkatan warriors is not necessary 
and they can easily be bypassed if you so choose.

>   Area 2:

     Once inside the first red room, kill the 4 Tarkatan warriors and 
the 2 Putrid Corpses.  The spike wall death traps get rid of them 
rather easily.  After the room is cleared head through the doorway full 
of spider webs.

>   Area 3:

     This room has two floors.  The bottom floor is inhabited by three 
Tarkata.  You don’t have to kill them if you don’t want to.  Once the 
room is cleared (or not) head up the far wall (using the Wall Climb 
ability of course).  At the top is a breakable statue to the right.  
Use the Fist of Ruin to break it and follow the path it blocked.  Jump 
across the broken away walkway, and then jump onto the tiny ledge 
sticking out beyond that.  One more jump lands you on a ledge 
containing a red Ying Yang symbol unlocked Baraka in the VS. Mode.  
After acquiring that, head back the other way and through the door 
(near where the Ying Yang was).

>   Area 4:

     We are now outside on a thin walkway with rows upon rows of spikes 
protruding and retreating real fast.  Watch for their pattern and run 
and jump to avoid them.  Once you get to the safe platform (with a 
Mortal Kombat Dragon Symbol on it), interact with the “Test Your Might” 
lever (make sure the Masked Guard is standing right underneath the 
spike wall when you hit the release button; he needs to be squashed by 
the wall in order for you to be able to proceed.  With that lever taken 
care of, a spiked wall falls down back across the spiked walkway 
squishing the guard.  Head back over there and interact with another 
“Test Your Might” lever (the same thing applies here with the Masked 
Guard).  Once complete, this lever drops another spiked wall and allows 
you access to another part of the spiked walkway.  Once again, study 
the pattern of the spikes and once ready, run and jump across this 
platform.  At the end of this much longer spiked walkway, is one last 
“Test Your Might” lever.  Again, time it to smash the guard patrolling 
that area of the walkway.
     Once the final spiked wall is brought down, run all the way back 
over to it and proceed down that spiked walkway.  At the end is a door, 
enter it.

>   Area 5:

      This room contains around 10-12 Tarkata.  A Multality should do 
the trick here.  With all of them dead, enter the door at the far end 
of the hallway.

>   Area 6:

     The only thing of note in this room is the Gold Mortal Kombat 
Dragon Symbol floating just outside the walkway and the “Test Your 
Might” challenge on the left side of the room.  Knock an enemy through 
the barricade to reveal it.  Once revealed, shoot it with a fireball, 
or throw your hat at it.  A Fatality input image is revealed.  After 
the baddies are dead and the token is collected, head over to the gold 
throne type thing on the left side of the room.  Begin the “Test Your 
Might” mini-game and tap the jump button as fast as possible to break 
it and open a red door.  With that collected start backtracking to the 
room where you entered the spider webby doorway.  Once there, enter the 
door at the far end of the room (to the left of the spider webby door).

>   Area 7:

     Once inside this room, kill the 3 Tarkatan warriors and the Shadow 
Priest.  Once again, a Multality does the trick here.  Watch out for 
the fire that erupts from the ground though.  Once they are all 
defeated (make sure you have a full health bar) enter the red door on 
the left side of the room.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<
|Boss – Orochi Hellbeast|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^<^>^<^>^<

     This boss can be pretty tough if you don’t know his secret.  If 
you’ve been paying attention the loading screen hints, you would know 
that if the Hellbeast devours one of his own, he regains energy.  The 
trick to defeating him is to take out the smaller bad guys in this room 
so he can’t regain health.  Once they are gone, unload combo after 
combo on him until he is dead.  Note that once the initial three 
Tarkatan warriors are either killed by you or eaten by the boss, they 
no more respawn.  So try and take them out as fast as possible.  Also, 
avoid getting up real close to the Hellbeast as he has a habit of 
igniting himself on fire, causing you be thrown back suffering massive 
damage.  When he rears back and breathes fire, unload on him with 
special moves and combos.  With the Orochi Hellbeast slain, exit the 
room from which you entered and make your way back to the very first 
room of the Soul Tombs.
     Once back here, save your game and take out the Tarkatas scurrying 
about.  With your game saved and the Tarkatas destroyed, enter the 
green door on the right.


>   Area 8:

     This first room comes equipped with around 8 Tarkatan warriors.  
You have to kill all four in order for the Ying Yang door to open.  So 
get to it.  Once they are all dead, head through the newly opened door.

>   Area 9:

     This long room contains Tarkatan warriors and putrid corpses.  The 
left side of the room leads to a door that is being held by putrid 
corpses, but it can’t be opened yet.  So head all the way right and out 
that door.  You will find yourself outside once again.

>   Area 10:

     This outdoor portion can be a little tough.  For starters, you 
have to be weary of all the boulder being hurled at you and green 
skulls flying toward you.  Secondly, the Shadow Priests on the sides of 
the platforms also try to attack.  If you fall down to the spikes, 
don’t worry, you just suffer some damage and you can jump back onto the 
small platforms to get back onto the bigger ones.  Just be quick and 
smart about crossing this section of the level.  Once across to the 
other side, enter the doorway.

>   Area 11:

     This area contains a giant fan spinning overhead and one poor 
Tarkatan warrior that can be thrown up into the fan cutting him to 
pieces.  Once he is dead, head up the stairway.

>   Area 12:

     Upon entering this room, a mini cut-scene plays showing a little 
ceiling of spikes.  This should give you the hint.  You have to throw 
one of the 4 Tarkatas into those spikes.  Once done, a little platform 
lowers.  Hop onto this platform and jump up to the ledge.  Run around 
the left side of the walkway and go the door.

>   Area 13:

     We are now in a room above the original room with the fan.  Run 
down the walkway and up the little stairway overlooking the fan.  Jump 
onto the platform suspended above the fan.  4 Tarkatas drop down.  
Begin throwing them over the platform and onto the fan’s spinning 
blades.  Once you throw 4 of them into the blades they become dislodged 
and fly into the sides of the wall (lo and behold, they make a little 
bridge leading up to another part of this area).  Climb the dislodged 
fan blades and get to the top of this area.  After climbing the fan 
blades, run up the little walkway and stand on the platform.  A short 
cut-scene plays showing a statue drop a sword it was holding.  
Backtrack to the room with the two putrid corpses tied up.  Once back 
in that room, run to the left side and pick up the massive sword that 
was dropped.  Use it to dismantle the Tarkatas and the putrid corpse 
that drop down.  With them dead, use the sword to cut the two putrid 
corpses tied to the wall in half.  With that done, the door they were 
“guarding” opens.  Enter it.

>   Area 14:

     Upon entering, Lao and Liu see Shang Tsung standing in front of 
some green portal.  He then transforms himself into younger Shang Tsung 
(think Mortal Kombat II).  He proceeds to beat the hell out of Kung Lao 
and Liu Kang.  With both of them down, Tsung berates them and instructs 
two Shadow Priests to “kill then.”  Lao helps Liu up and they prepare 
to fight.
     Once you regain control, kill the two Shadow Priests and one 
Tarkata.  With them dead, walk up to the Soul Tombs and hit it with the 
Fist of Ruin 5 times.  It proceeds to explode.  With the Soul Tombs all 
but “defeated” return to the main room of this level.  Upon entering, 
we see a beam of light shining from one end of the room to the other.  
The light enters an “eye” of sorts on one wall.  The wall then begins 
to fade away brick by brick revealing a passageway.  Enter the walkway 
hidden behind the bricks.  


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>
|Boss – Baraka|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<

     Upon entering this hidden room, a cut-scene plays showing Baraka 
impaling a monk with his blades.  Baraka then impales the monk in the 
face and tosses his body at Liu Kang.  The monk’s soul gets sucked up 
into a pillar on Liu’s side of the room.  Baraka is a pain in the ass 
to fight.  The first part of this fight is pretty much a normal battle.  
Baraka can’t be comboed very heavily thanks to his combo breakers, so I 
recommend staying farther back and unleashing your projectiles at him.  
Stay as far away as possible.  Once he hits about half health, the 
second part of this battle occurs.
      Once Baraka is beaten up a bit, he flees to the other side of 
this room (across the little pit).  He proceeds to grab a monk, touch 
him to a raging fire near him and hurl the flaming monk at your 
character.  Baraka does this twice; after he hurls the second one over, 
Baraka jumps back over the chasm fore more combat.  Once you beat him 
up a little more a cut-scene plays showing your character knock Baraka 
down the little pit.  He jumps back up and your character jump kicks 
him down the pit again.  This time we see him stick his blade into the 
wall to save himself from ultimate doom.  He proceeds to climb back out 
of the pit.  He begins running back and forth hiding behind obstacles 
obstructing him from your view.  All the while he is shooting blade 
sparks at you.  The only way to hit him at this point is to fire your 
own projectiles at him.  After about 10 successful projectile hits on 
Baraka, the final stage of this battle begins.
     Baraka proceeds to jump back over the little pit and as he does, 
he swipes one of his blades at Liu Kang.  Kang ducks it and a little 
receptacle containing a sword falls out.  With Baraka dazed after his 
miss, Liu knocks Baraka back across the room making him hit another 
receptacle holding another sword that drops to the ground.  Pick one of 
these swords up and attack Baraka with all you’ve got.  Eventually, the 
two of you will clash swords.  When this happens a “Test Your Might” 
mini-game occurs.  Hit the jump button as fast as possible and once 
done, Baraka becomes dazed.  When he is in this state, impale him with 
the sword you are holding.  Do this a second time with the other sword 
to seal his fate for good.
     Once both swords are impaled, (one in Baraka’s midsection, the 
other through his head) a Fatality sequence occurs.  The green skulls 
from earlier in the game come flying out.  They levitate Baraka and fly 
toward him smashing him into the walls and ceiling of the Soul Tombs.  
After a couple seconds of that, they levitate Baraka over the pit and 
about 10 of them come rushing after him, causing him to explode into 
blood and body parts.

     After this scene, another scene plays with Liu Kang and Kung Lao.  
They claim they have done just as Raiden wanted.  Raiden responds with,  
“I see.”  Holograms of Lao and Liu appear and begin fighting across the 
chasm.  Liu says Lao failed the tournament and claims he should take 
his place as his servant.  Liu punches Lao down and Lao uppercuts Liu.  
Lao says he fights for honor.  The real Liu claims that is not really 
him (Lao).  Lao wonders what happened with their ancestors.  Liu 
doesn’t know, but he thinks that Raiden wanted them to see this.  Liu 
says they are part of an ancient mystery and “that is all.”  The 
floating Dragon Token is not accessible to us yet so enter the portal 
to be transported back to the Wu Shi Academy.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^><^>^
|Wu Shi Academy II|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^<^>

     Once you portal back to the Wu Shi Academy for the second time, 
head to the area of the level with the rushing water (remember you had 
to pull levers with the “Test Your Might” mini-game in order to 
extinguish the fires)?  To get there, just jump on top of one of the 
houses in the area you portal in from.  On top of the house, jump up to 
the flowing water.  Once in that area, Tarkatan warriors will attack.  
You can avoid them if you like, but taking them out will make your life 
much easier.  Continue along the water path and hit the statue guarding 
the way with the Fist of Ruin.  Drop down into the next area and nab 
the kombat token to obtain the Wall Run ability.  Use your new ability 
to navigate your way back up to the water.  From there, head back to 
the Soul Tombs through the portal you entered from in the first place 
for a new move.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>
|Soul Tombs II|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<

     Back in the chamber where you defeated Baraka, wall run up the 
wall to your left to obtain the Wall Jump ability.  Now you can exit 
the Soul Tombs; head back to the Wu Shi Academy.  From there, head all 
the way back to the Portal.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>
|The Portal IV|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<

     Once back in the Portal for the fourth time, head back down near 
where you climbed up the wall to enter the Soul Tombs.  Except this 
time run to the left of the screen and exit out the portal that 
appears.  
     Once you arrive on the other side, a cut-scene with Kitana and 
Mileena.  Says that everyone Shao Kahn touches becomes like her 
(Mileena).  Liu and Lao rush to help her up after Mileena knocks her 
down.  She says that Mileena fled to the Wasteland.  She is a clone of 
Kitana, and if Mileena dies, Kitana’s soul will become Shao Kahn’s.  
Liu says they have to stop Mileena before that happens.  When you 
regain control, ignore the Shadow Priests that appear and run along the 
pathway.  Head to the right portion of this area and Wall Climb/Wall 
Run up this wall.  At the top, head left and Wall Climb/Wall Run up to 
the top of this ledge.  Head right, and kill the two Shadow Priests and 
Tarkatan warrior and proceed into the portal after the walkway appears.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<
|The Wastelands|
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>^<

>   Area 1:

     Once here, run down the pathway until you come to a large open 
area with a lava pit in the middle.  Once you step foot into this area, 
4 or 5 Red and Black Dragon Mercenaries spawn in for you to kill.  So 
pick up the giant sword to the right and go to work.  These guys seem 
to be able to take more damage than previous foes, but the sword you 
have should make them a little easier.  Watch out for the Red Dragon 
grenades and the Black Dragon knife lunge attacks as they both do a 
pretty good amount of damage.  If you want to have a little fun with 
these guys, just stand back and they start attacking each other!  It 
will take awhile for them to kill each other, but is humorous 
nonetheless.  Also of note, watch out for the small “patches” fire 
about as running into it will damage you.  Also, stay out of the lava 
pit, as standing in it will gradually decrease your health.  One last 
thing, if you sword “runs out”, there is another one in front of the 
fire pit.  With all of the mercenaries dead, save your game if you 
wish, and Wall Climb up the wall to the right of the huge gate (make 
sure you have one of the swords from the earlier fight with you).
     At the top, head right.  Once you see the little alcove (right 
before the ledge drops off) run into it to receive a Fatality Input 
Image.  With that token collected, jump across the gap and Wall 
Run/Wall Jump up into another little area with a huge statue.  Head 
right, and hack away at the pile of bodies blocking your way.  Enter 
the darkened tunnel.  

>   Area 2:

   Here you will be faced with Mercenaries tossing massive boulders at 
you.  Just dodge them and you will find a ladder to your right.  Climb 
it and more Mercenaries will be hurling boulders at you.  Once past 
these, you will find a ladder to your right.  Climb up this one and you 
will be faced with your last boulder dodging exercise.  Dodge these and 
climb the ladder on the left.  At the top a cut-scene will play showing 
Kung Lao cutting down a mysterious man form a cage about two pits of 
fire.  They ask for his help to kill Shang Tsung as the man retrieves 
two hookswords from the ground.  He denies their help and throws his 
hookswords to the ground.  Lao says he loves doing something for 
nothing.  Raiden then appears and says they are there to secure freedom 
for Earthrealm and this realm as well.  Once you regain control of your 
character, pick up all the EXP orbs littered about and then head right 
to pick up the red Ying Yang symbol for another Fatality Input Image.  
Run back to the tunnel that led to this place (dodging the boulders on 
the way down of course).

>   Area 3:
   
     Once back in this area, proceed to cross the bridge.  A Black and 
Red Dragon Mercenary appear, but throwing them over the bridge gets 
them out of your hair quickly.  Once on the other side of the bridge, 
head all the way left and pick up a Health Upgrade.  With your sword 
still in hand, hack at the bodies blocking the path to your right.  
Head through the tunnel.

>   Area 4:

     Upon entering a cut-scene plays showing samurais coming alive 
piece by piece.  Raiden is then shown hovering above.  He proceeds to 
throw his Lightning Staff into a pool of blood.  That should clue you 
as to what to do.  The pool becomes electrified once the staff begins 
to shoot off lightning, so throw the samurai into the electrified pool 
of blood to kill them.  After killing 10-12 of them in this way, head 
over to the “Test Your Might” mini-game.  Initiate it and complete it.  
This causes the gate you entered to release.  Head out the gate for a 
surprise.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<^
{Boss – Sub-Zero}
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>^<^

     A small cut-scene plays showing a gate falling down.  Head through 
that gate (the gate down near the pit of lava) and through the darkly 
lit cave.  Once on the other side, Liu Kang and Kung Lao are stopped 
dead in their tracks by walls of ice that appear all around them.  Lao 
then uses his hat in a 360-degree motion cutting all the ice around 
them down.  Sub-Zero says it doesn’t matter who they are, he’s “learned 
to call everyone enemy.  Zero isn’t hard, you just have to constantly 
dodge/jump over his freeze ability.  He is pretty quick with his slide 
move and uppercut, so be wary of those.  Use projectiles (pending 
you’ve upgraded them, which you should have) and he should go down 
relatively easily.  After he shoots an ice freeze, he may become dazed 
temporarily, take this opportunity to unload a heavy combo on him.  
     At about quarter health, a cut-scene plays showing Kung Lao 
cutting Sub-Zero’s face.  With him dazed, Lao throws his hat at him and 
Liu kicks the hat away in mid-air.  The Sub-Zero that died earlier is 
the brother of this Sub-Zero.  Kung Lao claims they came to the 
Wastelands to rescue “his girlfriend.”  Sub-Zero knows of Goro and says 
he cannot be beaten in combat.  Kitana shows no chance against him.  
Zero says Lao could have killed him but didn’t.  He knows better now.  
He says they must cross the Sea of Blood to seek out Kitana.  They must 
find an old boat that Sub-Zero will repair in order to find and face 
Goro.  Sub-Zero they freezes a submerged boat and all three hop aboard.

>   Area 5:     

Once you regain control, the boat will sail to your destination.  All 
is not well though as skeletons emerge from the blood and attack you.  
Throw or kick them off the edges so as to not “slow the boat down.”  
Sub-Zero helps in this fight making it a little easier.  Watch out for 
the fire breathing statues on the left and right sides of the screen as 
the battles wear on.  Once the boat ride from hell is over, jump off 
the boat and follow Sub-Zero up the path as he begins to freeze a huge 
door blocking your path.  With it frozen, Zero says, “I will need your 
strength to break the door.”  Use the Fist of Ruin attack to break away 
the bottom half of the door.  Head inside.

>   Area 6:

     A short cut-scene displays with Sub-Zero claiming the exit must be 
up top and that you guys have to get there somehow.  The camera then 
pans out revealing two huge spinning blade wheels.  The trick here is 
to throw enemies onto this wheel of blades causing the bodies to become 
dismembered; their blood then begins to flow and pool in a little vat.  
After throwing 5 or so enemies into the wheel, Sub-Zero asks you to 
defend him while he freezes the overflowing blood.  Do just that and 
after a couple seconds, he tells you to Wall Climb up the blood because 
Goro is just ahead.  Once at the top of this area, Long Jump over the 
spiked wheel to obtain the red Ying Yang symbol unlocking Arena Art.

>   Area 7:

     In this area head down the stairs to find yourself being attacked 
by two Black Dragon Mercenaries.  Sub-Zero asks you to defend him while 
he freezes the wall allowing you to Wall Run across..  Once again, do 
just that; it may be easier to just throw the enemies into the blazing 
fire or off the ledge.  Once the ice is present Wall Run across to the 
other side.  If you threw the Black Dragon Mercenaries in the pit 
before the ice wall was made and you fall into it while Wall Running 
they will be down there, so watch out.  Also, Sub-Zero can be knocked 
down there while you are attempting to run across.  If this happens he 
asks you to come down there and help him kill the Mercenaries.  You 
have to do this in order for the cut-scene with Scorpion to play.  Once 
across Scorpion pops out of the flames and jump kicks Zero.  He then 
opens a portal and jumps into it.  Sub-Zero says he killed his brother 
and claims Lao and Kang can’t help him.  He tells them to go and jumps 
in to the portal.  Once you regain control, hit the save point if you 
wish and head through the doorway. 

<^>^<^>^<^>^>
{Boss – Goro}
<^>^<^>^<^<^<

     Once inside a cut-scene plays showing Goro Liu Kang and Kung Lao 
cautiously entering the area.  We then hear Goro asking why they 
entered his lair.  He proceeds to jump through a walkway and the battle 
is on.  Goro isn’t too tough as long as you dodge his head first 
charges and quick (although short range) fireballs.  Goro can also jump 
across the area and cause shockwaves to emanate out from under him when 
he lands.  Just Long Jump away when he does this; jumping also dodges 
that attack.  If you get too close, Goro can grab you and a “Test Your 
Might” begins.  The timer is set to 6 seconds instead of 8 or 9, so it 
is pretty much impossible to beat.  When the timer runs down, he 
proceeds to pummel you mercilessly and throw you to the ground taking 
off a massive amount of health.  Stay as far away as possible.  Also, 
he cannot block, so hit him with everything you have as fast as you 
can.  About halfway through the battle, Goro rips a pillar out of the 
ground and swings it around; watch out for the shockwaves that emanate 
out from it.  If you get too close to Goro when he is wielding the 
pillar, he can grab you, set the pillar on the ground and smash your 
face into it, causing a good bit of damage.  Just stay back and pelt 
him.  
     Once he is dead, enter U, U, D, L, Attack to Fatality him.  Once 
the animation starts, Johnny Cage jumps in and stops you.  He proceeds 
to Shadow Kick Goro in the chest causing his foot to go straight 
through.  Liu Kang claims he should have let him kill Goro.  Cage and 
Lao are like “what?”  Liu says he (Lao) shouldn’t turn his back on him 
and then punches him down.  Before he can do anything else, Cage 
punches him (Liu) revealing that Liu Kang was Shang Tsung impersonating 
Kang.  The real Liu runs out and Cage explains Shang can morph into 
anyone he wants.  Lao says they still have to rescue Kitana.  Cage says 
“A girl, is she hot?”  Raiden then morphs in and claims he has 
something else for Cage to do.  You regain you character at this point.
     Pick up the Dragon Token in the middle of the arena to obtain the 
Double Jump ability.  Gather all the EXP orbs around the area and run 
up the steps and out the door.  Raiden appears and claims Shang Tsung’s 
defeat is close.  He says the “key” to his defeat is in the Netherrealm 
and opens up a portal to the Deadpool.  Before heading over there, 
though, save your game.  


<^>^<^>^<^>^<>
|The Deadpool|
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>

>   Area 1:

     Once inside the Deadpool, you will notice hooks hanging from the 
ceiling (just like in Mortal Kombat II’s Deadpool).  Throw or Uppercut 
the Putrid Corpses onto these hooks (five of them should do it) and 
pick up the Golden Koin floating near the sealed gate.  Picking it up 
affords you with the Swing ability. The gate proceeds to open up.  Head 
through and practice your Swing ability on these poles.  Just jump 
toward them and keep pressing the jump button to eventually land in 
front of a portal leading to the Portal; jump in.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<>
|The Portal V|
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>

     Once back inside the Portal, drop down a couple ledges until you 
reach the area with the stone slab denoting how many Tournament 
Victories you have.  To the left of this slab are poles sticking out of 
the wall.  Use the Swing ability to climb to the top of this area.  
Once at the top, kill the two Shadow Priests and enter the portal to 
the Netherrealm.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<
|Netherrealm|
<^>^<^>^<^<^<

     A cut-scene occurs with Kung Lao asking Raiden why pure souls like 
Liu and Lao can enter the Netherrealm.  Raiden says that with all the 
guys they’ve killed, their souls have become tainted allowing them 
“access” to the Netherrealm.

>   Area 1:

       When you regain control, use the save statue if you like.  
Proceed through the cool-looking archway and head down the stairs.  If 
you stand at the top of the stairs and Long Jump, you will land on the 
archway containing a red Ying Yang symbol that unlocks new Arena Art.  
Drop down from the archway and some Bloody Skeletons will greet you.  
You don’t have to kill them if you don’t want.  If you choose not to, 
run down more stairs and a cut-scene will play showing Noob Saibot and 
Sub-Zero dueling.  Sub-Zero freezes Saibot and he (Noob) proceeds to 
run away.  Lao asks what happened to Scorpion.  Zero claims Scorpion is 
still here.  Lao speculates that this Zero is Shang impersonating him.  
Sub-Zero assures him it is really him.  Sub-Zero then claims that he 
thinks Noob Saibot is his brother.  Zero tells them to find Scorpion to 
cripple Shang Tsung.  He says the Netherrealm is infinite, but Scorpion 
will find them as long as they are there.  
     Once you regain control head up and around the path.  At the end 
of it, Scorpion appears and reappears.  He then punches your character 
in the face denoting combat!

<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<^
{Boss – Scorpion}
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>^<^

     The first of this three-part encounter is much like fighting a 
regular bad guy.  Keep an eye out for his Spear and Teleport Punch, as 
those are his deadliest moves.  Use projectiles and combos to move onto 
the next portion of this fight.  You cannot knock him into the air for 
air combos, so stray away from that.  Once a third of his life has been 
knocked away, your character knocks Scorpion off a ledge seemingly into 
lava.  At the last second he spears a rock and swings himself to safety 
onto a rock.  Proceed after him running and jumping over pits of lava.  
On the last ledge watch out as the ground erupts in flames.  You don’t 
die if you miss a ledge but your health gradually decreases the longer 
you are in the lava.  Jump out as soon as possible.  Run down some 
stairs and the fight resumes.
     The second part of this fight is rather awkward.  The camera 
switches to a behind the back view of Scorpion who begins shooting fire 
up from the ground at you (the area of the ground that is about to 
erupt in flames glows yellow beforehand so it gives you time to dodge).  
Dodge these attacks and when he shoots his Spear into the ground run up 
to it and being the “Test Your Might” mini-game.  Once successful, you 
will pull Scorpion off the ledge to you.  It is now time to attack him 
mercilessly.  He has new moves though; his Mortal Kombat 4 Fire Breathe 
and Mortal Kombat II Leg Sweep.  The Fire Breathe is pretty easy to 
dodge as it only covers a small amount of area; just stay away from him 
in order to not have to deal with the Leg Sweep.  If you get too close, 
Scorpion can take out his Spear and start slicing you with it, so watch 
out for that too.  After beating him up a bit, he returns to his rock.  
Repeat the above steps to bring him back to you for another beating.  
Once his life hits empty, hit U, D, T, T, and the Attack button to 
Fatality him.  Your character wraps the Spear rope around his neck and 
then stabs him in the head with the Spear itself.  Scorpion is then 
tossed into the flaming lava.
     You thought it was over didn’t you?  Well, guess what?  It isn’t!  
This last part of the battle is pretty tough.  Scorpion proceeds to 
emerge from the flames on fire.  His special moves also do much more 
damage.  Watch out as he swings his Spear around violently and can whip 
it out at you instantly.  He also gains his Deadly Alliance/Deception 
move where he erupts fire from the ground.  Watch out for that as it is 
denoted with a yellow glow just like before.  Once his health is empty, 
Fatality him with:  D, U, L, L, Kick.  The animation starts off with 
Scorpion starting to be pulled down into the lava by skeletons that 
have emerged from the lava.  He manages to knock them off.  Liu then 
kicks Scorpion into the lava, but he spears a stalactite on the ceiling 
and catches himself.  Liu Kang then kicks a skeleton into the air and 
kicks it straight at Scorpion hanging from the stalactite.  Scorpion 
proceeds to fall into the lava with his hand forming a “thumbs up” as 
it falls into the lava (paying homage to Terminator 2 of course).  Once 
you regain control pick up the Dragon Token in the middle of the 
platform to obtain another Tournament Victory. Gather the EXP orbs and 
head back up the to entrance to the Netherrealm collecting more EXP 
orbs on the way.  Save your game before exiting to the Portal.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^
|The Portal VI|
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>^

   A short cut-scene plays with Raiden claiming they (Liu Kang and Kung 
Lao) have everything they need to defeat Tsung.  He says there is a 
portal “there.”  He also claims Kung Lao is different and strange.  Liu 
says that he thinks Lao is Shang Tsung in disguise.  Raiden says there 
is a door down there leading to the Foundry.  After that cut-scene, 
head down and through the wall denoting how many tournament victories 
you’ve accumulated thus far.  It is not necessary to kill the Shadow 
Priests in this area, but you are more than welcome to put them out of 
their misery if you feel the need.  Head through the door to the 
Foundry.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<
|The Foundry|
<^>^<^>^<^<^< 

>   Area 1:

     Here it is, the last area of the entire game.  Once you enter, go 
right down the cave and save your game if you wish.  After you save (or 
don’t save) head up the rampway to the left; kill the Oni that run in 
if you wish.  At the top of the rampway, a cut-scene plays showing Jax 
pointing a gun at Kung Lao.  Jax says that Raiden has been guiding him 
through the Foundry to find Sonya Blade.  Jax claims that Raiden has 
been with him the entire time (a few weeks perhaps).  Does this mean 
that the Raiden guiding you is Shang Tsung in disguise?  After the cut-
scene, head left.  In this hallway, you will see huge boulders raising 
and crashing to the ground.  Carefully maneuver your way past them.  
Once at the end of this tunnel, pull the lever “Test Your Might” style 
to raise one set of bars blocking an entranceway.  
     With the lever pulled, head back the way you came.  In the main 
room, take the right path and, while dodging the flames erupting from 
the ground, interact with another lever.  After pulling this one with 
yet another “Test Your Might” mini-game, the last set of bars releases 
from the blocked passageway on the second floor.  Next, head through 
the door to the left of the Save Point.  As you make your way through 
the tunnel, two Demon Archers burst through the walls to the left and 
right of you.  Dispatch them and run through the door that opens before 
you.

>   Area 2:

     In this next area, jump onto the bricks floating in the lava until 
you reach an open doorway.  Head through this door.

>   Area 3:
   
     Here, throw three Demon Archers onto the towering flames behind 
you.  Once that is done, a large vat will fill with lava and float away 
opening a door in the room you’re currently in.  Go through that door. 

>   Area 4:

     In this room, another Orochi Hellbeast awaits with two Demon 
Guards.  The same tactics as before apply here.  Try to take out the 
smaller enemies first (a Multality works well here) so the Hellbeast 
can’t regenerate health by consuming his own.  The only thing that 
sucks is that the Demon Guards keep respawning making this fight MUCH 
tougher than it should be.  Anyway, stay back and pelt it with 
projectiles.  Watch out for his flame breath though.  Once he is dead, 
you have to knock the Demon Guards onto the two hooks hanging from the 
ceiling to raise a pillar in the NE section of the room.  Wall Climb 
the pillar and prepare for more Demon Guards.  As a side note, use the 
Fist of Ruin move on the cracked wall to reveal a Gold Mortal Kombat 
Dragon Symbol.  Shoot it with a projectile to unlock a new Movie.  On 
the right side of this second floor, Long Jump over the lava pit and 
use the lever with a “Test Your Might” mini-game to pour lava into some 
sort of platter.  Once that is done, go to the opposite side and Wall 
Run across the lava to the top of that area.  Go through the now open 
door.

>   Area 5:

     A cut-scene shows a cast being hit open by two massive hammers to 
reveal a gold battleaxe (so that is what we’ve been doing with all that 
lava!).  There are three Demon Guards in this room, so take them out 
(again, a Multality works well here).  With them dead, head through the 
door on the left.

>   Area 6:

     In here, a cut-scene plays showing the axe floating down a 
corridor, while a door on the left side of the screen opens.  Run down 
the stairs, jump over the lava and Wall Climb the ladderesque wall.  
Once up top, head through the door that was just opened.

>   Area 7:

     Once inside interact with the gold thing sitting in front of the 
pool of water.  “Test Your Might” it to have your battleaxe cooled off 
in the water and then dropped in the middle of the room.  Retrieve it 
and prepare to stave off a Demon Archer, Captain and Guard.  With them 
dead, head back to the main room of the Foundry.  Once there climb the 
slope again and run right.  Here, destroy the two magic stones with 
your battleaxe (you need to use a special move with the battleaxe to 
break them.  On Xbox hold R, and push X, on PS2, hold R1 and push X).  
Once they are destroyed, 2 Demon Handlers, a Demon Archer and 2 Oni 
drop down.  Kill all of them and the massive door in the background 
will open.  Enter it.

>   Area 8:

     You drop down into what appears to be a volcano.  Anyway, head up 
the loooooong staircase and continue running down the long corridor.  A 
cut-scene eventually plays with Kung Lao saying that he can’t trust 
Raiden.  Liu thinks Lao is Tsung and jump kicks him down.  Lao nips up 
and Raiden teleports in between them.  Raiden says that he has been 
tricking them into feeding him soul after soul.  Raiden is then struck 
by a fireball from Shao Kahn sending him backward.  Kahn says that they 
have to follow him if they want to kill Shang Tsung.  Once you regain 
control, head right and save your game.  Interact with Kitana and 
Johnny Cage in the cells if you wish.  With your game saved head down 
and out the long tunnel.
     Another cut-scene shows Lao and Liu walking out into a gladiator 
arena.  Shao Kahn then says that all who enter this realm serve him.  
Liu asks where Raiden is, and Kahn claims they know him not at all.  
Raiden is there and wants to see you.  Raiden then teleports down only 
to swing his staff at Liu and Lao’s face.  “Raiden” then transforms 
into Shang Tsung.  He wants this victory to be his and only his.  Tsung 
then beckons us to fight. 

<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<^>^<
{Boss – Shang Tsung}
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>^<^>^<

     The first of three boss battles, Shang Tsung is by no means easy, 
but he can be defeated with patience.  Especially watch out for his 
Triple Fireballs and the 3 fireballs that erupt from the ground.  Long 
Jumping over then is probably the safest bet.  Shang can also transform 
into other characters, giving you an opportunity to unload on him.  
Stay far back though as close combos cause him to just throw you.  
Projectiles and close combos when he is transformed work best.  He can 
morph into pretty much everyone (Sub-Zero, Johnny Cage etc. so remember 
their special moves and watch out for those).  
     With Shang dead, Fatality him with L, U, U, D, B.  Liu proceeds to 
punch Tsung repeatedly in the chest and gets him down on one knee to 
crack his neck.  Shao Kahn says that all within this realm serve his 
will even those that seek to betray him.  Tsung wanted to use the power 
he gained from Lao and Liu to take over Shao Kahn’s realm.  Kahn’s 
people want Kintaro to fight.  Here he comes down a corridor playing to 
the crowd.  He jumps into the arena and it’s on.


<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<
{Boss – Kintaro}
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>^<

     Kintaro, like Goro before him can’t block.  Use this to your 
advantage and whenever you’ve created room between you and him, shoot 
projectiles at him.  Don’t get too close or he’ll shoot a fireball at 
you doing moderate damage.  He also has a move where he jumps off-
screen and pounds around.  There is no way to know where he is going to 
land, so just Long Jump around when he’s doing this.
     With his health depleted completely, Fatality him with D, L, D, R, 
B.  Kang jump kicks his face and tries to punch him.  Kintaro grabs 
him, but Liu grabs a hold of his two bottom arms and rips them clean 
off.  He then flips and rips another arm off; he does the same with the 
other arm and then proceeds to tug and rip his head off.
     A cut-scene plays with Shao Kahn saying that they can earn their 
friends’ freedom if they defeat him.  A voice from above says the Elder 
Gods will help you.  The final boss of the game awaits!


<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<^>
|Boss – Shao Kahn|
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>^<^>

     Shao Kahn uses his Shoulder Barge (the cheapest move in the game) 
and Green Fireball from MK3 a lot so be wary of that.  His rising knee 
lift is deadly if you like to be air born during the fight.  He also 
cannot block, so projectiles are good against.  With his health about 
half gone, a cut-scene plays showing Kahn take out his sledgehammer and 
whip it at Liu Kang.  Liu flips over it, grabs it and whips it back at 
Kahn.  It smashes Shao Kahn in the face knocking off his helmet in the 
process.  The fight then begins.  Shao Kahn swings his sledgehammer 
pretty violently, so just Long Jump out of the way.  If he hits you 
when he is in one of his spinning hammer moves, mucho damage will be 
taken off.  Watch out for it.  Also, don’t get too close to him or 
he’ll grab you and smash you to the ground.  
     Once his health hits zero, Fatality him and enjoy the ending.  
Congratulations you’ve completed Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks.

[VIII. Boss Strategies]
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>

     This section will contain boss strategies to help you vanquish the 
game’s many bosses.  The strategies listed below can also be found 
throughout the walkthrough, but I’ve put them here for your 
convenience.  The bosses will be listed in the order they appear 
throughout the game.  All sub-bosses will be included as well.  Good 
luck!

--> Goro’s Lair:

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^
{Boss – Oni Warlord}
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^

     Oni Warlord – This boss isn’t too hard as long as his minions are 
not near you when you attack the Warlord.  Try to kill them away from 
him and the spikes.  The fastest way to do that is to throw them onto 
the spikes.  The Warlord himself goes down pretty fast if you use a 
combination of weak attacks and launchers (he won’t get launched but, 
they do a fair bit of damage).  Watch out for the big club he carries 
around as it can cause massive damage if you are directly hit.  His 
swings are pretty easy to detect though.  So evading them is essential.  
He has a big overhead smash (which can hit his minions, if he misses 
you) and a twirl around attack that has a pretty big radius.  Just keep 
on him, and you’ll eventually kill him.


--> Evil Monastery:

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>
{Boss – Kitana}
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>

     Once at the top another cut-scene occurs.  Kitana reveals she is 
the loyal daughter of Shao Kahn; since Liu and Lao are enemies of Shao 
Kahn, they are also enemies of hers.  Prepare to fight.  Kitana is not 
terribly difficult if you block and dodge her fan projectiles.  When 
she misses with a fan throw she will be a bit dazed; run up to her and 
pummel her with a nice air juggle.  Also, don’t get too close to her 
without blocking, as she will dice you up pretty good with a powerful 
fan kombo.  Once she is at about half health, she jumps into a portal.  
Raiden then appears saying that Kitana is under some sort of spell.  We 
must set her free.  Liu Kang and Kung Lao then jump into the portal 
after her.

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<^>^<^>^
{Bosses – Mileena and Jade}
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^>^<^>^<^>^<

     Focus all your attacks on Kitana, keeping a watchful eye on 
Mileena and her teleport kick, as well as Jade’s fireball attack.  
After a few well-landed hits on Kitana, a cut-scene plays showing your 
character hurl Kitana into the device once more.  While she is trapped, 
Mileena and Jade will attempt to free her; a little meter appears 
saying “Spell Time,” and once this meter fully depletes, Kitana is 
freed.  You must stop them; or the battle will continue unnecessarily.  
With Liu Kang, just Dragon Kick them away as they get close.  That is 
the easiest possible thing to do.  With Kung Lao, try his Teleport Kick 
or Hat Throw to back them off the contraption.  Once Kitana is freed 
from her spell, she faints and tells your character to kill Jade and 
Mileena.
     These two can be pretty tough to fight at the same time.  There is 
a trick however as evidenced by Raiden’s words of advice.  There are 
two circle areas surrounded by small spikes on the left and right sides 
of the screen.  If you knock one of the two Outworld Assassins into 
this area, a cage springs up from the ground, trapping them.  You only 
have to fight one of them at a time now; while they are trapped, you 
can walk up to the level outside the cage and play the “Test Your 
Might” mini-game again to inflict massive damage on them as well.  Take 
advantage of this.  Be weary of Mileena’s teleport kick, ground roll 
and sai throw as they all happen very fast and can leave you vulnerable 
to subsequent hits if not dodged; also be careful of that annoying 
purple fireball from Jade.  Once their health meters are depleted, they 
become stunned.  Once both are stunned, you will have to perform a 
Fatality to finish both off.  Hit the Fatality Button, input the 
combination and watch as Liu Kang whacks Mileena in the gut with Jade’s 
staff; Kang then proceeds to stab Mileena in the face with both of 
Mileena’s sais.


--> Reptile’s Lair:

<^>^<^>^<^>^<
|Boss – Snake|
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^

     The first part of this battle has the snake slithering all over 
the ground.  Don’t even try to attack it or you will just get hurt.  
Instead, target the pillar the snake is slithering around on (the one 
that is already damaged) and perform your Fist of Ruin attack.  Three 
hits should do the trick.  With that broken, the snake slithers out the 
main entrance and back in.  It is now moving all over the place through 
the various holes in the wall.  The rubble from the broken pillar 
allows us to jump onto the sections of ledge that surround the room.  
Once on those ledges, we can now target the next pillar; it has a weak 
section too.  Attack it three times with your Fist of Ruin ability to 
knock it out and cause another pathway to be revealed.
     With the second pillar knocked out, continue running and jumping 
across those ledges to get to the third pillar.  Watch out for the 
snake though as it slithers pretty fast in and out of the wall, hitting 
you if you’re not careful.  With the third pillar knocked out, we have 
to find our way to the fourth.  As your character is about to run up to 
it, the snake breaks through the ledge.  You will now have to Long Jump 
the gap when the snake is out of sight in the wall.  The fourth pillar 
breaks, and huge pieces of stone fall onto the snake killing it.  The 
rubble also falls into the ground creating a large hole to which your 
character falls into.  At the very bottom is Reptile!

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^
|Boss - Reptile|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^

     Reptile’s move set is pretty limited as he rarely attacks you hand 
to hand.  He mostly relies on his special moves from past Mortal 
Kombat’s, namely his slide move, invincibility move, and green acid 
spit move.  At times, he will vanish and appear at the top of a pile of 
rubble.  You cannot hit him while he is up there; he begins to shoots 
fireballs at you that do moderate damage if not dodged.  With Reptile 
at about half health, he turns completely invisible.  If you hit him, 
he will become visible again for a short time.  This can get pretty 
tough.  His head sometimes shows through to give you an idea of where 
he is.  His fireballs also are not invisible, so watch out for those; 
they can do massive damage if he hits you successfully more than once 
in a row.  With Reptile’s health depleted completely, the Fatality 
Button will appear.  Hit it and perform the button inputs.  
     Liu Kang (it’s different for Lao) will punch Reptile hard in the 
face sending him reeling.  Reptile will come back with a punch that Liu 
Kang dodges.  Kang then puts Reptile over his knee and proceeds to rip 
at his lover jaw eventually dislodging it.  Reptile falls to the ground 
almost dead.  With no mercy, Kang punches the hell out of Reptile and 
proceeds to squeeze his throat killing him by asphyxiation.  Reptile 
leaves behind a Dragon Token.  Pick it up to gain the Wall Climb 
ability.  Raiden tells us to use it to climb out of Reptile’s Lair.  We 
have also obtained another Tournament Victory.  Before you leave, pick 
up the many experience orbs littered about.


--> Soul Tombs:

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<
|Boss – Orochi Hellbeast|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<^<^>^<^>^<

     This boss can be pretty tough if you don’t know his secret.  If 
you’ve been paying attention the loading screen hints, you would know 
that if the Hellbeast devours one of his own, he regains energy.  The 
trick to defeating him is to take out the smaller bad guys in this room 
so he can’t regain health.  Once they are gone, unload combo after 
combo on him until he is dead.  Note that once the initial three 
Tarkatan warriors are either killed by you or eaten by the boss, they 
no more respawn.  So try and take them out as fast as possible.  Also, 
avoid getting up real close to the Hellbeast as he has a habit of 
igniting himself on fire, causing you be thrown back suffering massive 
damage.  When he rears back and breathes fire, unload on him with 
special moves and combos.  With the Orochi Hellbeast slain, exit the 
room from which you entered and make your way back to the very first 
room of the Soul Tombs.

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>
|Boss – Baraka|
<^>^<^>^<^<^>^<

     Upon entering this hidden room, a cut-scene plays showing Baraka 
impaling a monk with his blades.  Baraka then impales the monk in the 
face and tosses his body at Liu Kang.  The monk’s soul gets sucked up 
into a pillar on Liu’s side of the room.  Baraka is a pain in the ass 
to fight.  The first part of this fight is pretty much a normal battle.  
Baraka can’t be comboed very heavily thanks to his combo breakers, so I 
recommend staying farther back and unleashing your projectiles at him.  
Stay as far away as possible.  Once he hits about half health, the 
second part of this battle occurs.
      Once Baraka is beaten up a bit, he flees to the other side of 
this room (across the little pit).  He proceeds to grab a monk, touch 
him to a raging fire near him and hurl the flaming monk at your 
character.  Baraka does this twice; after he hurls the second one over, 
Baraka jumps back over the chasm fore more combat.  Once you beat him 
up a little more a cut-scene plays showing your character knock Baraka 
down the little pit.  He jumps back up and your character jump kicks 
him down the pit again.  This time we see him stick his blade into the 
wall to save himself from ultimate doom.  He proceeds to climb back out 
of the pit.  He begins running back and forth hiding behind obstacles 
obstructing him from your view.  All the while he is shooting blade 
sparks at you.  The only way to hit him at this point is to fire your 
own projectiles at him.  After about 10 successful projectile hits on 
Baraka, the final stage of this battle begins.
     Baraka proceeds to jump back over the little pit and as he does, 
he swipes one of his blades at Liu Kang.  Kang ducks it and a little 
receptacle containing a sword falls out.  With Baraka dazed after his 
miss, Liu knocks Baraka back across the room making him hit another 
receptacle holding another sword that drops to the ground.  Pick one of 
these swords up and attack Baraka with all you’ve got.  Eventually, the 
two of you will clash swords.  When this happens a “Test Your Might” 
mini-game occurs.  Hit the jump button as fast as possible and once 
done, Baraka becomes dazed.  When he is in this state, impale him with 
the sword you are holding.  Do this a second time with the other sword 
to seal his fate for good.


--> Wastelands:

<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<^
{Boss – Sub-Zero}
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>^<^

     A small cut-scene plays showing a gate falling down.  Head through 
that gate (the gate down near the pit of lava) and through the darkly 
lit cave.  Once on the other side, Liu Kang and Kung Lao are stopped 
dead in their tracks by walls of ice that appear all around them.  Lao 
then uses his hat in a 360-degree motion cutting all the ice around 
them down.  Sub-Zero says it doesn’t matter who they are, he’s “learned 
to call everyone enemy.  Zero isn’t hard, you just have to constantly 
dodge/jump over his freeze ability.  He is pretty quick with his slide 
move and uppercut, so be wary of those.  Use projectiles (pending 
you’ve upgraded them, which you should have) and he should go down 
relatively easily.  After he shoots an ice freeze, he may become dazed 
temporarily, take this opportunity to unload a heavy combo on him.  
     At about quarter health, a cut-scene plays showing Kung Lao 
cutting Sub-Zero’s face.  With him dazed, Lao throws his hat at him and 
Liu kicks the hat away in mid-air.  The Sub-Zero that died earlier is 
the brother of this Sub-Zero.  Kung Lao claims they came to the 
Wastelands to rescue “his girlfriend.”  Sub-Zero knows of Goro and says 
he cannot be beaten in combat.  Kitana shows no chance against him.  
Zero says Lao could have killed him but didn’t.  He knows better now.  
He says they must cross the Sea of Blood to seek out Kitana.  They must 
find an old boat that Sub-Zero will repair in order to find and face 
Goro.  Sub-Zero they freezes a submerged boat and all three hop aboard.

<^>^<^>^<^>^>
{Boss – Goro}
<^>^<^>^<^<^<

     Once inside a cut-scene plays showing Goro Liu Kang and Kung Lao 
cautiously entering the area.  We then hear Goro asking why they 
entered his lair.  He proceeds to jump through a walkway and the battle 
is on.  Goro isn’t too tough as long as you dodge his head first 
charges and quick (although short range) fireballs.  Goro can also jump 
across the area and cause shockwaves to emanate out from under him when 
he lands.  Just Long Jump away when he does this; jumping also dodges 
that attack.  If you get too close, Goro can grab you and a “Test Your 
Might” begins.  The timer is set to 6 seconds instead of 8 or 9, so it 
is pretty much impossible to beat.  When the timer runs down, he 
proceeds to pummel you mercilessly and throw you to the ground taking 
off a massive amount of health.  Stay as far away as possible.  Also, 
he cannot block, so hit him with everything you have as fast as you 
can.  About halfway through the battle, Goro rips a pillar out of the 
ground and swings it around; watch out for the shockwaves that emanate 
out from it.  If you get too close to Goro when he is wielding the 
pillar, he can grab you, set the pillar on the ground and smash your 
face into it, causing a good bit of damage.  Just stay back and pelt 
him.


--> Netherrealm:

<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<^
{Boss – Scorpion}
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>^<^

     The first of this three-part encounter is much like fighting a 
regular bad guy.  Keep an eye out for his Spear and Teleport Punch, as 
those are his deadliest moves.  Use projectiles and combos to move onto 
the next portion of this fight.  You cannot knock him into the air for 
air combos, so stray away from that.  Once a third of his life has been 
knocked away, your character knocks Scorpion off a ledge seemingly into 
lava.  At the last second he spears a rock and swings himself to safety 
onto a rock.  Proceed after him running and jumping over pits of lava.  
On the last ledge watch out as the ground erupts in flames.  You don’t 
die if you miss a ledge but your health gradually decreases the longer 
you are in the lava.  Jump out as soon as possible.  Run down some 
stairs and the fight resumes.
     The second part of this fight is rather awkward.  The camera 
switches to a behind the back view of Scorpion who begins shooting fire 
up from the ground at you (the area of the ground that is about to 
erupt in flames glows yellow beforehand so it gives you time to dodge).  
Dodge these attacks and when he shoots his Spear into the ground run up 
to it and being the “Test Your Might” mini-game.  Once successful, you 
will pull Scorpion off the ledge to you.  It is now time to attack him 
mercilessly.  He has new moves though; his Mortal Kombat 4 Fire Breathe 
and Mortal Kombat II Leg Sweep.  The Fire Breathe is pretty easy to 
dodge as it only covers a small amount of area; just stay away from him 
in order to not have to deal with the Leg Sweep.  If you get too close, 
Scorpion can take out his Spear and start slicing you with it, so watch 
out for that too.  After beating him up a bit, he returns to his rock.  
Repeat the above steps to bring him back to you for another beating.  
Once his life hits empty, hit U, D, T, T, and the Attack button to 
Fatality him.  Your character wraps the Spear rope around his neck and 
then stabs him in the head with the Spear itself.  Scorpion is then 
tossed into the flaming lava.
     You thought it was over didn’t you?  Well, guess what?  It isn’t!  
This last part of the battle is pretty tough.  Scorpion proceeds to 
emerge from the flames on fire.  His special moves also do much more 
damage.  Watch out as he swings his Spear around violently and can whip 
it out at you instantly.  He also gains his Deadly Alliance/Deception 
move where he erupts fire from the ground.  Watch out for that as it is 
denoted with a yellow glow just like before.  Once his health is empty, 
Fatality him with:  D, U, L, L, Kick.  The animation starts off with 
Scorpion starting to be pulled down into the lava by skeletons that 
have emerged from the lava.  He manages to knock them off.  Liu then 
kicks Scorpion into the lava, but he spears a stalactite on the ceiling 
and catches himself.  Liu Kang then kicks a skeleton into the air and 
kicks it straight at Scorpion hanging from the stalactite.  Scorpion 
proceeds to fall into the lava with his hand forming a “thumbs up” as 
it falls into the lava (paying homage to Terminator 2 of course).  Once 
you regain control pick up the Dragon Token in the middle of the 
platform to obtain another Tournament Victory. Gather the EXP orbs and 
head back up the to entrance to the Netherrealm collecting more EXP 
orbs on the way.  Save your game before exiting to the Portal.


--> The Foundry:

<^>^<^>^<^>^<>^<^>^<
{Boss – Shang Tsung}
<^>^<^>^<^<^<>^<^>^<

     The first of three boss battles, Shang Tsung is by no means easy, 
but he can be defeated with patience.  Especially watch out for his

<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^<^>
[IX. Token Locations]
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<^<^>

     Throughout Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, there are various tokens 
scattered about.  These tokens come in the form of red and black Yin 
Yang symbols and Mortal Kombat Dragon Symbols.  Collecting these tokens 
unlocks various goodies including concept art, movies, Fatality images 
etc.  These tokens can be found anywhere.  There are a total of 68 and 
all of their locations can be found below.  I will list the tokens in 
chronological order.

--> Goro’s Lair:
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-

> Concept Art: In the very first room of the game (after you fall 
through the hole), throw an enemy into the skeleton hanging on the 
wall.

> Movie: In the second room, right above the entrance, is a Yin Yang 
token.  It is possible to obtain this by continually jumping off the 
Oni’s heads or just coming back when you have the Double Jump ability 
(that’s the preferred method).

> Concept Art: When you get to the bridge area, stand on top of it and 
look at the moon.  When the witch shadow flies across it, shoot the 
moon with your projectile.  The token will appear beside you.

> Concept Art: In the room with the Fatality icon, knock an enemy into 
the hanging chandelier (knocking it down in the process) to reveal a 
token.

> Fatality Input Image: In the room with the huge fire in the middle 
and the breakable wall, Double Jump near the wall at the end of the 
room to find the token.

> Concept Art: In the room with the Warlord, Double Jump across the two 
bridges and drop down near the bottom of the screen to find a hidden 
ledge with a token resting on it.


--> Wu Shi Academy:
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

> Concept Art: In the first area (with the many catapults lying around) 
throw an enemy onto the third one to send them crashing through a 
walling with a token inside.

> Warrior Shrine (Vs. Level): In the first area, throw an enemy onto 
the fourth catapult to toss them into a barrier allowing you access to 
the token.

> Concept Art: This token is only available in co-op mode.  In the 
second part of the stage, (where you meet Johnny Cage) there is a 
switch.  Pull this switch to open a small gate near the start of the 
area.

> Wu Shi Academy (Vs. Level): This token is only available in co-op 
mode.  In the second part of the stage, (where you meet Johnny Cage) 
there is a switch.  Pull this switch to open a small gate near the 
start of the area.

> Arena Art: Near the middle of this stage, you will see a token 
resting on a ledge protected by wall spikes.  Take a running start, 
jump as far as possible and then Double Jump.  You should land on a 
ledge to the right of the token.

> Johnny Cage (secret character): After you complete the first Test 
Your Might mini-game, climb up the broken down temple.  Jump inside to 
find the token that unlocks Johnny Cage.

> Fatality Input Image: Once you have obtained both the Double Jump and 
Wall Run abilities, head back to the area where you had to cut the 
ropes to drop the lava pots on the baddies.  On the left is a hidden 
wall.  Wall Run up the wall and then Double Jump to obtain the token.

> Concept Art: Near the portal to Outworld, there is a koin to the left 
protected by spikes.  Once you have obtained the Swing ability, swing

Scorpion only becomes playable after beating the game as Liu Kang.  
Sub-Zero only becomes playable after beating the game as Kung Lao in

|Smoke Missions:|
<^>^<^>^<^>^<^>^<

     The Smoke Missions are hidden missions that once completed unlock 
an arcade perfect port of Mortal Kombat II.  Listed below are the 5 
missions and the parameters that need to be met in order to complete 
them.  In order to start these missions, you need to find Smoke first 
in the Living Forest.  He is located in the area with the waterfalls.  
When you come across the second set of Clay Soldiers, throw one of them 
into the rock that is blocking a doorway.  Head inside to find Smoke.  
Talk to him each time you complete a mission until they are all done.  

--> Mission 1: Break the walls in the Soul Tombs.

     You have to break the walls in the Soul Tombs for this mission.  
So head to the Soul Tombs and go through the green room.  In the first 
room of this portion of the level, throw the Tarkatas through the 
breakable wall toward the back of the room.  You’ll also be rewarded 
with a Fatality and 500 EXP.

--> Mission 2: Find the shrine.

     You have to “find the shrine” in this mission.  When you first 
entered the Wu Shi Academy you came to a fork.  We ended up taking the 
right fork.  It is now time to take the left one.  Long Jump over the 
spike pit and knock down the statue with the Fist of Ruin.  Walk up to 
the wooden double doors and you’ll be rewarded with 700 EXP.

--> Mission 3: Perform 3 sacrifices in the torture room.

     In order to perform these three sacrifices, head to the Soul Tombs 
once again.  As you enter a cut-scene will play out showing you where 
you need to go.  It turns out that a new door with a skull over it has 
opened up.  In this room is a pit and 3 different portions of the wall 
with spikes on them.  You need to throw three enemies onto these spikes 
in order to pass the mission.  You’ll be rewarded with 700 EXP.

--> Mission 4: Throw an enemy into the purple portals in the Portal 
area.  

     Head to the Portal (the main hub of the game).  If you remember, 
there are two small purple portals scattered about.  On the uppermost 
portion of the Portal area (across the gap) is a small portal straight 
ahead.  Throw one of the Shadow Priests into it or one of the other 
guards around.  The second portal can be found on the lowermost portion 
of this area.  Go to this area and locate the portal; it is back and to 
the right.  Throw one of the Shadow Priests or the Demon Captain into 
it to complete the mission.  You’ll be rewarded 700 EXP for completing 
the mission.

--> Mission 5: Survive in the frozen wasteland.

     Go through the portal that opens up to the right of Smoke.  You 
find yourself in the Pit II from Mortal Kombat II!  Enemy upon enemy 
will continue to attack you.  Kill all of them (throwing some off the 
bridge helps tremendously) and return to Smoke; you’ll be rewarded with 
700 EXP once again.  For completing Smoke’s missions, you unlocked 
Mortal Kombat II!  Congratulations!
