If you think that Mortal Kombat has the exclusivity of bloody finishers in fighting games… you may want to watch this video to discover some worthy rivals!

Fatalities are a means of ending a fighting game match by gruesomely murdering the loser. It was popularized as a finishing move performed at the end of a match in Mortal Kombat. It became part of Mortal Kombat’s DNA. Every game had to have at least one Fatality. But that wasn’t enough. Midway began adding spinoff finishers like Friendships, Babalities, Animalities, Brutalities, Hara-Kiris, and so on.

Mortal Kombat was an unprecedented success in the arcades of the early 90s, a clamor that was mixed with a great controversy with the arrival of the disturbing saga to home consoles. Many companies, seeing the success of the franchise created by Ed Boon and John Tobias, tried to replicate its formula by creating countless clones, with unevenly results.

But some videogames did not remain mere copies and tried to improve Mortal Kombat’s proposal, introducing their own rip-off versions such as No Mercies, Overkills, Executions and Claytalities. A torrent of gruesome imagination more typical of the most twisted gore movies.

In this video I explore in depth the history of fighting games, in search of the most brutal fatalities outside the Mortal Kombat saga. Finish him!

In this video you will find:

• A game curation showcasing the most brutal fighting games that rivaled Mortal Kombat franchise
• Information related to each game such as release date, developer company, game genre and system it was released on.
• Official game box arts with a 3D presentation.
• Educative and/or critical comments on the importance of the video game and why you should play it

⚠️ All gameplay recording, game curation and opinions included in this video, as well as editing is completely done by me

Bits & Beats creates videos about the history of video games. In this channel you’ll find comparisons, retrospectives, technical analysis, but, mostly, game curations with the idea of having an important task of preserving video games, and make them relevant to society at large.

Curation isn’t just about digging up neat games, but it’s also about preservation, interpretation, and using one’s knowledge to make it relevant to people. With my videos I want older gamers to look back and remember the influence of video games on their lives, and new gamers to understand the larger context of the series they’re playing for the first time today.

I put significant time and creative effort into each one of my videos, including research, digging into archives, playing video games and recording hours of footage, selecting specific clips, writing reviews for each title, and making a very careful video editing in the way to transmit both educational and entertaining values to my audience. Every video takes a lot of hours to produce, because I strive to give my audience a consistent, high-quality content.

Fidelity and preservation of the video games is essential in Bits & Beats, so the recordings are made with the highest bitrate quality. It is done this way to preserve original game look and sound through modern footage, with no superfluous additions. I recommend you watch the video at 4K and 60 frames per second to get the best possible viewing experience.

I hope you enjoy my videos and find them useful!

  1. What game was in the intro?
    That fatality is brutal

  2. Regarding Tattoo Assassins, this was actually made by Data East. Namely, their pinball division which is now known as Stern Pinball.

    As for the game's creation, it all began with an idea by Bob Gale (yep, the same guy who wrote the Back to the Future movies) who would give his screenplays to Joe Kaminkow who was friends with him following the creation of the Back to the Future pinball games (which explains one of the fatalities where the opponent is run over by a DeLorean DMC-12), And one of those screenplays involved tattoos coming to life.

  3. In the first 4 samurai shodown games Nakoruru (and later Rimururu) weren't subjected to fatalities, SNK probably didn't want that image of a cute girl being cut in half in their mind, especially since Nakoruru is the official poster girl for the franchise. But sometime after the 4th game they threw that ideology out the window, and now she and Rimururu are just as susceptible to fatalities as well as giving them

  4. I love your videos, they bring back a lot of memories playing these obscure games in my childhood. I wish you would keep the little blurbs at the bottom of the screen just a few seconds longer. I always have to go back or pause to read them fully.

  5. Samurai Showdown V Special to this day does it 10 times better than Mortal Kombat ever could

  6. Squirrel Kombat îs an old Mac shareware game with MK fatalities.

  7. its bad to see only old figthing games that are similar to mortal kombat (i wont count guilty gear because those finisher are just famility friendly or pegi13 at best)

  8. Mortal Kombat or not,atlest they stay true to the anima gore, unlike this today woke anima games smh…no game don't even have blood anymore smh

  9. Todo jogo inspirado no mortal kombat é uma porcaria, uma merda, um lixoooooo!

  10. I always used the Long hair Samurai in Samurai Showdown.

  11. Best with me in this list is RED EARTH! I wish I can play BLOODY ROAD with brutal gore fatalities like those games

  12. Wtf Japan you’ll ban MK but not SamSho?! It’s the same fucking concept!
    “Our game is ok because it’s Japanese” xenophobic weebs!

  13. I certainly remember "Eternal Champions". Good Lord are the finishers in that game very gruesome. Hell, I think it outside exceeds the Mortal Kombat games at that time and now… 😗

    The game also had some very good and well-written character lore. SEGA needs to revive that series. I think they're letting a sleeping giant slumber there…

  14. few of them seams to be MK clones for shore.

  15. I like the lil few seconds of Perturbator's "Humans are such easy prey" in your intro lol

  17. SamSho is definitely the best one here, honestly a franchise that surpasses MK when it comes to gameplay. Though it does feel a little weird to give the game ultraviolent finishing moves because of how "refined" it feels, it feels like the character's deaths should be honourable.

  19. Thrill Kill wasn't banned. it was straight up cancelled by the publisher, EA if not wrong.

  21. Aside for like…3 games that is really good, the rest is a complete crap

  22. Aside for like…3 games that is really good, the rest is a complete crap

  23. I about cut it off when I seen balls.. man this list is pretty weak bro

  24. I about cut it off when I seen balls.. man this list is pretty weak bro

  25. I wish what people want to be real get it.
    Yeah I think and I hope so

  26. If you noticed most of these games are 2D side scrollers or 3D CG models with somewhat choppy graphics which would allow them get away with the gore due to it being deemed unrealistic,the ones that are live action digital renderings would be just seen as cheap MK clone games

  27. Half of them at least are superior to MK. pfff sorry (not sorry !) mk is a lousy excuse for a fighting game

  28. I would like to give a mention to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers on the Sega Genesis. It wasn’t bloody, but it did have automatic finishing moves that were really cool.

  29. If I were to give MK Like an attempt I would go in a Red Earth and SamSho direction that harks back to Ninja Scroll and other violent anime from the 90s and 2000s.

  30. Sweet, I didn't realize Red Earth had some violence in it! Definitely giving it a shot now and may even buy that Capcom Fighting collection.

  31. Ese de las pelotillas fue sensurado? Jaja

  32. 0:50 "Santana! Acabe com ela!" POU!!! "Ai!"
    (Brazilians will understand)

  33. Primal Rage is the first game i remember seeing that was like Mortal Kombat after is had come out

  34. The arcade version of Killer Instinct is a little more brutal

  35. The Thumbnail….

    BRUTALITY!!!

  36. That Isn't Blood Warrior! That Isn't Tatoo Asistains! Oh Wait. Maybe The Chapters Were A Mistake.

  37. Really hope that a cross over character goes from Killer Instinct to be featured in Mortal Kombat. Also, we need a new KI.

  38. 8:35 Samurai shodown 5 special is the last neo geo game in 2004 for both MVS and AES hardware, Along with a farewell message for neo geo fans. They have cool fatalities but this isn't look like a mortal kombat Spin-off due to brutal mortal kombat-like fatalities? I wouldn't thought about my weird but true facts though…

  39. Damn KI counts as brutal? I’m glad to hear it

  40. Ridiculous!
    I've only heard 4/5 of those games. Rest look like cashgrabs. Ridiculous. No thoughts into making some of those games, they just wanted to sell violence for cash.

  41. I remember playing bloodstorm and mortal kombat everyday after school in the arcade. Kids now have more impressive tech, but will ever beat the feeling of those newly violent arcade games.

  42. So you display Killer Instinct…a game which has actual MK style fatalities, but you associate it to MK with a stage out finish???
