Mortal Kombat X Has A Selfie Fatality

Mortal Kombat X Has a Selfie Fatality

Love them or hate them, selfies are pretty much everywhere — including Mortal Kombat.

While Mortal Kombat X's gruesome fatalities get most of the attention, the game does include some sillier fatalities, too. Take this one by Cassie Cage, for example. As this footage by xbatusai shows, it starts out as a fatality normally would — in this case, Cassie brutally unhinges the jaw of her enemy. Right after she does that, she pulls the enemy in close, and then proceeds to take a duck-face selfie with the corpse. Seriously.

It gets better. The fatality shows Cassie uploading the picture to Mortal Kombat X's version of Facebook. Naturally, this social media hub is called Friendships. The Friendships page is full of gags:

You can also see other combatants comment on the selfie, too. All of this comes together to make the Selfie fatality my favourite Mortal Kombat X fatality so far. Yes, it's not the most brutal fatality in the game. But it is the most memorable and culturally relevant one.

    I mostly enjoyed the fact Scorpion has a "Friendships" profile.

    I assume that cassie must of been inspired by her father johnny and has her taken up some fatalistic narcissism

    I must be getting old.....

    This kinda of violence doesn't interest me in the slightest.

      There's a post identical to this in almost every article on the game. What does age have to do with your interests? I'm genuinely curious. I'm doubtful this kind of violence would've interested you at any point in your lifespan, simply because it's not something that interests you specifically.

      There was plenty of gory content in the later half of the 20th century, if anything nowadays CGI stands less of a chance at turning my stomach than physical props which were more common in the past; it's their synthetic nature that makes it less believable. Just the same way as I look at fake grass - it can look incredible in some designs, but you are far more aware that it is fake. Ridley Scott's aliens are still quite enjoyable today, but the props back then were more convincing. Gore is no different. A lot of the stuff in MK is tongue-in-cheek with some really good modelling. I enjoy it for that sake.

      It's great and all to acknowledge you're not interested - whatever, to each their own - but I doubt your age has any relevance to this. Don't rope everyone of an age bracket in with you. You like what you like, and it's as simple as that.

        I humbly apologise for offering my opinion on my personal changing tastes on this type of violence. I will fill out whatever form required in future before commenting on my personal experience of 28 years of gaming including the time forking out $2 coins down a Mortal Kombat machine.

        I also apologise that someone else's opinion has offended you for not fitting your personal opinion.

        I also apologise for your lack of comprehension for you have somehow read 15 words and made me talk for everyone, which is pretty clear I didn't.

        So again... I humbly apologise.

          I didn't shoot down your opinion, I merely asked you a question. Snide responses only show me you've jumped the gun a bit. But whatever.

        With all due respect sir, bull-f**king-shit. As a fan of the MK series, as someone who grew up through the slasher flicks of the 80's, I can tell you that the fatalities and gore in MKX is a step up from any other mainstream media.

    lol they really raised the bar on the fatalities in this one. Imagine the brainstorming sessions at NetherRealm Studios when first coming up with them all. I just hope they are easy to pull off.

    Much more imaginative than the last one, where half of them were just being pulled apart/sliced in half.
