This guide is made for the sole purpose of Scorpion's Moveset in Mortal Kombat
Deception. You may print out a copy to use if you wish but in know way can you
recreate or use this guide for other purposes. If you see a mistake anywhere in
this guide, feel free to contact me so I can change it and give you the credit
you deserve.



Place of Origin: Earthrealm
Alignment: Neutral
Allies: None
Foes: Quan Chi, Drahmin, Moloch, Shujinko and Sub-Zero.
Difficulty: 2(Game Rating)

Scorpion has been in just about every Mortal Kombat. Him and Sub-Zero were in
the very first one, and are still the favorite ninja's to this date. After the
first Mortal Kombat Movie, where he was defeated by Johnny Cage, he seperated
himself from everyone, and has no allies. He still hunts Sub-Zero to this day
for an epic battle. Another one of his great adversaries is Quan Chi, who led
him to believe that Sub-Zero had killed his family and clan when it was the
Sorcerer Quan Chi who had killed them. After Shujinko led Scorpion to Quan
Chi, Scorpion got his revenge against Quan Chi.

Bio 1:
In his haste to confront his nemesis, Quan Chi, he was ambushed by
two Oni and cast into a powerful soulnado. He would surely have been
torn apart by the souls trapped there had he not managed to escape into the
Void. It was in this place that he first set eyes on the fabled Elder Gods. He
would be forever changed by this encounter.

Bio 2: Location: RT  Key: D-4/Earthrealm
While in the Void, I witnessed, along with the Elder Gods, the death of Raiden
and the re-emergence of the Dragon King. Suddenly aware of my presence, the
Elder Gods transformed me into their servent and gave me a new purpose: To
prevent the Dragon King from merging the realms.

Alternate Outfit:
Krypt: Koffin KI,
Location: B-6/Earthrealm (Town)
This outfit, is the old school Scorpion we all grew up with. And it looks the
same as always.

Alternate OUtfit: (After you beat Konquest
Krpyt: Koffin KI,
Location: F-3/Eathrealm
After you get out of the portal, follow the path to a big house.
(Thanks to Rob Warnet)

Ending Summary: (SPOILERS)
It turns out that Scorpion is the true chosen one of the gods and he must
destroy the Dragon King. After hunting him down, Scorpion fights him in mortal
kombat and kills the Dragon King for good.

Scorpion Pros/Cons

What is good about him?
He has the ability to cause damage to his opponent and then bring them right
to him so he can finish them off. What makes Scorpion better here than Sub-
Zero is his easier combos. Plus you gotta love his alternate costume that lets
him go old school.

What is not so good about him?
Since his main attack is well-known throuhout the MK universe. People know
you are gonna use it and can block it easily, except the CPU doesn't. His two
fighting stances aren't as powerful as other fighters but his sword makes up
for it.


What works well against the CPU?
Since only the CPU doesn't reconize Scorpion's "GET OVER HERE" technique, that
is what you should use, then follow it up with an uppercut or something that
you need to be close to execute. If for some reason they are blocking it, then
you should switch over to Backflip kick and use some combos.

What works well against veteran players?
Since any Veteren would know of the Bloody Spear Technique (Listed above)You
have to rely on his specials, Hellfire isn't a good idea because it causes you
stop and react. Backflip kick is gonna help because it's hard to block, and the
Teleport kick will really throw him off, then mix it up with some combos.

What works well against medicore players?
If you use the strategy above and throw in the Bloody Spear, you will most
likely dominate every single time.

What works well to hit them into Death Traps?
Scorpion's best moves to knock someone off are from Moi Fah, use his basic
kicks, and you may be able to get them off using his famous uppercut.

What works against him?
Bloody spear should be easy enough to block as long as you have block ready to
be pressed. Use it when you see him backing up for that split second and
quickly follow up with a good combo or throw to send him packing.

TH     : Knee Launch    : Rating: 5/5
One of the stronger throws, Scorpion uses his knee and sends them flying,
causing great pain to the opponent and giving me him lots of damage. It
easiest to use this after using Bloody Spear.

B,F+1  : Bloody Spear   : Rating: 5/5
This has to be my favorite move of all time, NOW attached to his belt,
Scorpion shoots a rope with a Snake head out which impales the opponents body.
Then screams his famous "GET OVER HERE" line and they are dazzled for a bit
while you do any attack you want.

D,B+2  : Hellfire       : Rating: 3/5
A lot of people have these, shoot something in the air or require the opponent
to be somewhere. Scorpion will summon fire from the ground. And if the
opponent moves just a bit before it comes then it will be dodged. They have to
be standing still.

F,B+3  : Backflip Kick  : Rating: 4/5
This attack can come in handy at times, after running up to the opponent he
will jump and somehow manage to get his feet on fire while he does a backflip,
and then kicks them.

D,B+3  : Teleport Attack: Rating: 5/5
These attacks are so effective it's not even funny. I'd say out of all the
people who have them, Scorpion and Mileena use them the best. You can use this
the entire time and win by getting countless flawless victories. Use it when
you can't win by any other means.


Switch to Fatality when announcer says,"Finish Him"

F,D,F,F,1 : Fatility 1 (Must be fairly Close)
Description: Scorpion does a backward spin, then he unleashes his spear. The
spear hits the opponent's left arm and with just one tug, Scorpion rips it
right off. He throws his spear again, this time hittin' and lodgin' his
opponent's right arm and he rips it off with one tug as well. While the
opponent hobbles on leg saying "NO, NO, NO!!!," Scorpion walks over to them,
grabs their head and snaps their neck in a swift motion. They fall to the
floor dead and Scorpion raises his fist and lets out a victory yell.

F,B,F,B,1 : Fatility 2 (Must be fairly Close)
Description: Scorpion pulls his left arm back and proceeds to plunge it into
his opponent's neck. The opponent is coughin' with blood squirtin' from the
neck and after a couple of tugs, Scorpion rips off the head, spinal cord and
all. The headless opponent falls to the floor dead while Scorpion raises his
blood-dripping prize.

F,U,U,B,1 : Kari Kiri (A suicide)
Description: Scorpion gets on his knees, looks to the right, grabs a hold of
his own head and snaps it gruesomely (he is lookin' left). Then he falls to
the floor, face down and dies (duh).

User Kombos

From C.G.
First you use either back flip special or his throw. Then you use the Spear to
bring them to you. Then you use the hell fire special.Then with his sword you
use the  Triangle Triangle Square and use down triangle 2 times to use pop
up.The finally use either Back flip or Throw(use which ever one you didnt use
at the beginning.
