IGN lists the seven most brutal Mortal Kombat fatalities

"Ouch." That's what many gamers say whenever they see a Mortal Kombat fatality. IGN has counted down the seven most brutal ones in the franchise's history.

"Finish him/her!"

Fatalities put the Mortal Kombat (MK) franchise on the map. While Street Fighter's popularity sky rocketed due to interesting characters and a glitch that is known today as combos, the violence of MK made Ed Boon an icon in the gaming industry. Boon is the co-creator of MK, a title he shares with John Tobias.

IGN has dished out a list of the seven most brutal MK fatalities from their prospective. The fatalities on this list date back to the very first MK title. You can see the list below.

  • Kano’s Heart Rip (MK1)
  • Stryker’s Animality (MK3)
  • Noob’s Split (MK9)
  • Kung Lao’s Sawblade (MK9)
  • Shang Tsung’s Head-Rip (MK9)
  • Smoke’s World-Destroying Bomb (MK3)
  • Sub-Zero’s Spine Rip (MK1)
