Secret Mortal Kombat Arcade Menus Discovered 20+ Years Later: Finish HIM!

Mortal Kombat was one of the most popular games in the arcade back in the day. It seemed like every time I went I ended up standing in line to play. I can also remember entering lots of cheat codes on the Super Nintendo version, I still remember one cheat code as up, down, left, right, left, right, A,B, B, A – but I forget what game it was for. I never thought of arcade games having similar cheat codes.

Over 20 years after their heyday, a secret menu created by game developer Ed Boon has been discovered in Mortal Kombat 1, 2, 3, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 that gives access to different things depending on what arcade game you enter it on.

The sequence to get to the menu is as follows:

P1 Block (x times) then P2 Block (x times) then P1 Block (x times) etc…

MK1…
P1 (5), P2 (10), P1 (2), P2 (1), P1 (2), P2 (3), P1 (4)

MK2…
P1 (5), P2 (10), P1 (2), P2 (8), P1 (2)

MK3/UMK3…
P1 (5), P2 (10), P1 (3), P2 (1), P1 (2), P2 (2), P1 (3), P2 (4)

In MK1 and MK2, it gets you to what seems to be maintenance menus for coins and game issues, as well as to view the character endings. In MK3, you can use the sequence to launch a Galaga style mini game and a playable character called Smoke. Ultimate MK3 is the best with the ability to open a supreme demonstration of Fatalities, Animalities, Babalities, and Friendshipalities.

Check out the video to see all the secrets for yourself.
