-Version History-

Created: Friday, January 14, 2005.

V. .75 -- Made the FAQ and did some spell checking and correction as I move
forward. Combo's will be set up soon.

v. .85 -- I made some minor spacing corrections and I added a "Koming Soon"
Combo list that should contain detailed combo's for Mileena.
Also, I added the "Why Mileena?" Section as well. I also updated Mileena's
"Story" section as well.

v. .90 -- I updated some other things, and made up a Copyright before it was
too late and all that other good stuff. I also extended a bunch of things!

v. .91 -- Weaknesses and Strengths has been added, and all the spacing errors
that I've found have been erased. Kustom Kombos will be soon. I could really 
use some help getting most of them, however. 

v. 92 -- Updated the Controls.

v. 1.00 -- I updated the Custom Combos. They are up, and they are the combos
that I came up with on the top of my head because I don't have the game with
me right now. However, I'll also include more combos and the percentage of
each one sometime!

v. 1.10 -- How embarassing, I was so anxious to include Custom Combos that I
included Combos that didn't even work. But, I revised them and now I have full
working combos! And I added the percentage of them as well!

v. 1.15 -- I made up even more combos and included their percentages as well!

v. 1.16 -- Hardy har har. I updated even MORE combos. I hope that you enjoy
these as well!

v. 1.17 -- I added nothing new, I just spell-checked this Document. Can you
believe that "Kitana", "Mileena" and "Baraka" are not actual words? Pshha!

-About The Author-

Hello, my name is Joe. I like to refer to myself as "Joe. Z" and you might
see me on GameFAQ's a lot, usually in the Silent Hill 2, Resident Evil
and the MK: Deception boards. First, I like to congratulate everyone at
Midway for making such an awesome game. And everyone else who'll like my
FAQ about Mileena! Comments, please look at my Contact information down
at the end of this FAQ, and at the top.

This is my first FAQ here, so I'm not too sure what I should be doing
about spacing or posting (But I think I got the hang out if), so if there
are any major problems that you would like to share, I'll be glad to
hear about them so I can make this an enjoyable FAQ to read and to use for
the many gamers out there.

You can ask me almost anything related about the Mortal Kombat world, and if
I could help you, I'll try my best.

-- Joe. Z

-Why Mileena?-

Like most of the Females in Mortal Kombat, not only are the Females
quick, but they also include some sort of Eye Candy for the viewer.

Except for the fact that she has her hidden Tarkatan features behind the
veil of hers, she is still pretty fun to get used to and play with.

Mileena also has some of the most deadliest, but shortest, combos in the
game (Which is good for not being Combo Breaked). Some combos can be linked
together, especially in her Sai stance. She is also one of the few Female
characters that are availible right at Playing Time, with the exception
of Ashrah.

She does not have very good Strength, but she makes up for it for her
spectacular Special Moves, her gruesome Fatality and, of course, her
powerful Sai stance. I believe that her Sai stance is one of the few
stances in the game with equal power, the ability to propel the opponent
backwards, good Low Attacks and easy linking Combos. Her special moves are
perfectly balanced, one for Far Attacks, one for a low attack, and
another for a High Attack.

-Mileena's History-

She first appeared in Mortal Kombat II, and was widely known about her being
the twin of Princess Kitana, who also first appeared in MKII.
Mileena, however, did not make an appearance in Mortal Kombat 3, but she was
reintroduced again in Mortal Kombat Gold. She has since remained
under wraps until Deception, where she is even deadlier then ever. Even in
Deception, she still possess her trademark Sai's, which can be
used in her Weapon Stance. All of her original moves also make a return:
Teleport Kick, Rolling Thunder, and Sai Throw.

-Mileena's Story-

From the Instruction Booklet:
Place of Origin: Outworld
Alignment: Evil
Allies: Baraka, Shao Kahn, & Shang Tsung
Foes: Kitana

Created by the sorcerer Shang Tsung, Mileena has at last fulfilled her destiny
as Kitana's successor by posing as the former princess. She misleads Kitana's
military forces in an attempt to give the Dragon King the time he needs to
complete his plans. They follow her command believing her to be the real
Kitana. Only Baraka knows the truth behind her deception

From her Bio:
I am a creation of sorcery, the hybrid of a Tarkatan warrior and the princess
of Edenia. My purpose was to eventually replace my ... sister
... Kitana, from whom I was cloned. Kitana regained her memories, however,
and uncovered the plot to supplant her. After Shinnok's invasion,
she cast me into her prison, where I remained until Baraka freed me.

From her Alt. Bio:
My hatred for Kitana consumes my every thought. But Baraka tells me that his
new lord, the Dragon King, has possession of Kitana's body and
uses it as his personal bodyguard. My only chance for revenge against her
will be to serve Onaga and pose as the Princess, leading her
precious alliance of Edenia and Outworld to their doom.

Her Ending: 
Because it was widely believed that princess Kitana and slain her
many years ago, none were suspicious of the veil Mileena wore to conceal
her Tarkatan features. It was not difficult for her to assume the identity
of the princess and take control of her alliance. To further conceal her
deception, Mileena gave command of the armies to Bo Rai Cho, and instructed
him to lead the attack against Baraka's diversionary forces.

Baraka's militia had failed to divert the enemy, and to her surprise, was
decimated by Bo Rai Cho's forces. She then realized that she was in control of
the most powerful military force in Outworld and Edenia combined... She had
finallyachieved her true purpose, her destiny. But Mileena could not continue 
her charade indefinitely - not as long as Baraka knew the truth.  She ambushed
himin the ancient Beetle Lair, and fed him to a swarm of flesh-eating insects.
All hail Princess... Kitana.

-Special Moves-

Rolling Thunder - Foward, Down+Attack 3

Description: Mileena ducks into a ball and quickly moves across the
screen, tripping the opponent. If blocked, Mileena will be vulnerable
to attack.

Soaring Sai - Down, Back+Attack 2

Description: Mileena takes out her Sais and throws them at the opponent.
She's vulnerable to attack as she's preparing to throw the Sai's.

Kick From Above - Back, Back+Attack 3

Description: Mileena moves through the ground and kicks the opponent
in the head from the sky. If blocked, Mileena is vulnerable to attack.

Frankensteiner - R

Description: Mileena climbs onto the opponent, wraps her legs around
their neck and flips them over. Like all the other throws, if ducked,
Mileena is vulnerable to attack.


To perform a fatality, move into the required region, then change your
stance to "Fatality." To change into the Fatality stance, simply press
L until "Fatality" appears.

(Sweep) Fatality 1: Forward, Forward, Down, Down, Attack 1

Description: For Mileenaís first Fatality, at Sweep distance she
takes off her veil, revealing her gruesome sharp teeth, and runs
towards the opponent, and furiously bites off their head,
spits it out and laughs in a cynical way, pulling off a 'cute' pose.

(Far) Fatality 2: Up, Up, Forward, Forward, Attack 3

Description: Her second Fatality is much different; from the far
distance, she takes out her two Saiís, throws them in the air, and kicks
them into the opponents chest.

Hara-Kiri: Back, Down, Forward, Back, Attack 1

Description: Her Hara-Kiri is much like the second Fatality. She takes
out her Saiís and stabs them into her head side-ways.
