Mortal Kombat 3 (Genesis)
|Mortal Kombat 3|
Like the SNES version, but it has a lot more Kombat Kodes.
A handler for various exceptions is built into the game. This will display information on RAM / variables at the time of the crash.
Other error handler text:

Level-4 and Level-6 Interrupt will never be triggered because they correspond to the horizontal and vertical blank interrupts, respectively, technically making those unused.
Press A, C, Up, B, Up, B, A, Down at the main menu to enable a cheats menu with a sound test function.
Unused Bio Screens
A bio screen for Smoke was planned, but the text was never written, so it just uses Kano's bio text. Use the PAR code FF0217:0E to see it during the game's demo mode.
More interestingly, the string "- MOTARO -" appears with the rest of the bio text! Like with Smoke, he doesn't have an actual bio. Unfortunately, since Motaro doesn't have a Versus picture, the game will crash before this text can be displayed.
The last line from the game's ending is never actually seen in-game. This doesn't appear in the arcade version either. Ending text is at 0x0478E2:
SHAO KAHN IS NO MORE YOU ARE THE MK3 CHAMPION YOU DONT SUCK

Maybe a hint that The Graveyard was originally planned to be in the Genesis port.
