Mortal Kombat 11 fatalities - all the fatality codes

Finish them!

At some point while playing Mortal Kombat 11, you'll want to see all the finishers. Don't deny it, we're all morbidly curious. Fatalities have been a staple since the original Mortal Kombat, ranging from simple and effective, to comedic. You don't need to unlock them first to perform them if you have the input code and we've got all the combinations you need right here.

Whether you're a newcomer or a veteran kombatant, there's plenty of things to know about Mortal Kombat 11. Head on over to our hub for everything you need to know which you can find in our Mortal Kombat 11 guide. You can also check out our Mortal Kombat 11 farming guide for tips on how to get hearts as quickly as is possible, even if the method is tedious, as well as the Mortal Kombat 11 Krypt guide for the locations of the heart chests in the Krypt mode.

Mortal Kombat 11 fatality guide

In this guide, we will give you the codes and distances you need to perform each one of the character's fatalities in the game. Every character has two of them and they can be performed when you see the words "Finish Him!" or "Finish Her!" on the screen. You'll only have a few seconds to get into position and enter the code.

Mortal Kombat 11 fatality positions

For each of the fatalities, there is a certain distance that you need to be in order to execute the move. While "Any" literally means that it can be performed just by standing and pressing the button combination, the others are categorised as Close, Mid, and Far. I've provided images showing the rough areas you can stand in, but essentially it boils down to:

Close
Mid
Far
  • Close - Stand as close to the opponent as possible.
  • Mid - Anywhere from two full steps back to two back-dashes back from the opponent.
  • Far - Anywhere from two back-dashes back from the opponent.
