So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Mortal Kombat 4 makes the series jump to 3D...into a pit filled with spikes.

Unused Graphics

There are two unused character portraits in the game that would go unused from arcade revisions 1.0 to 3.0. These include one of Mileena and of Noob Saibot, both of which were completely removed in revision 2.1. Noob Saibot's portrait was used in home ports when he was a secret character.

Unused Character Biography Screens

Revision 1.0 of the game has its character biography screens disabled by default, but they can be reactivated with the use of cheats. The screens contain joke type commentary about each character, and were most likely disabled for this reason. Note that in this revision, Fujin's biography references him by the name "WindGod", along with Noob Saibot's biography being unfinished.

Unused Characters

Noob Saibot can be accessed in revision 1.0 of the game using cheats, but was later completely replaced by Reiko in revision 2.1. He has a very limited moveset which includes the ability to use his teleport slam, along with being able to wield a spiked mace. He would later return as a playable character in home console releases of the game.

Red Herrings

Two false audits, "Dogs" and "Loffs", can be found in the Audits screen.

Unused Kombat Kode

Present at 0x0A9390:

KODE 12: 4 PLAYER RANDPER ILLEGAL

The sequence to access this code doesn't appear to exist in this version or any of the console ports.
