Switches & Soak Test

To unlock these options at the title screen, press Down, Left, Right, Right, Left, Down, Up when the cinematic story appears. Shao Kahn will say "Fight!" to confirm activation.


This menu allows you to manipulate different aspects of the game. Superb!

  • 1 Hit P1: Any attack kills player one.
  • 1 Hit P2: Any attack kills player two.
  • Toasty: This will make Dan Forden's (sound designer) face appear for every uppercut.
  • Constant Acid: The "Dead Pool" fatality is easier to perform. Just uppercut your opponent.
  • Easy Smoke: This will allow either player to fight Smoke without meeting the "Toasty" requirement. Press Start when on "The Portal" stage to fight Smoke. Note that you need to be in two-player mode.
  • Easy Jade: This will allow you to reach Jade from any stage. You must win a round by using Low Kick only.
  • Noob: This will allow either player to fight Noob Saibot without meeting the fifty wins requirement. Note that you need to be in two-player mode.
  • Hard Player 1: Player one's health will reset when it reaches zero.
  • Hard Player 2: Player two's health will reset when it reaches zero.
  • Artfull Scaling: Turns in-game scaling on. This is similar to Art of Fighting's mechanics.

Soak Test

This menu allows you to manipulate Attract mode. To reset the game, hold Select + Start for about five seconds.

  • Background: Choose a level.
  • Player 1: Choose the character for player 1.
  • Player 2: Choose the character for player 2.
  • Go Soak: Watch the demo battle.
  • Exit: Quit.

In-Game Kodes

Kodes to kill time. Excellent!

  • Throwing Disabled: Hold Up or High Punch on both controllers before the round starts.
  • Easy Dead Pool Fatality: When it says "Finish Him/Her," uppercut your opponent and quickly hold X afterwards.
