A video shared by user thethiny on social media platform X showcased Sub-Zero performing the controversial fatality on Omni-Man. Surprisingly, the fatality has not yet been made available for purchase in the in-game store by NetherRealms.
A Thanksgiving Dinner Gone Wrong
The fatality takes place in front of a table filled with traditional Thanksgiving food. Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrated in the United States and Canada at the end of November, where families gather for a dinner featuring turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie. However, in this fatality, the food ends up in a much different place.
Sub-Zero begins by forcefully smashing Omni-Man’s mouth against the edge of the table. He then proceeds to forcefully feed him until his airway is blocked, and finally jumps on his belly, causing a fountain of vomit and the explosion of Omni-Man’s head. A voice can be heard declaring Sub-Zero as the victor.
A Controversial Reception
The video tweet showcasing the fatality has already garnered over 1.5 million views and has sparked a wide range of reactions. Some viewers are left speechless and describe the fatality as “disgusting” and unpleasant. However, there are also those who find it amusing and funny. Additionally, some users are curious about how the voice for Sub-Zero was obtained, as it is not yet available in the game.
In Vandal’s analysis of Mortal Kombat 1, they explain that the game does not disappoint “any fan of this legendary saga” with its well-planned fights and multiple layers of depth.
