Hidden Kombatant trick:

This is a trick used to help fulfill the conditions a little easier then the normal way. If you are on a stage and lets say it needs a double flawless, but you get hit one of the rounds, you don't want to have to start all over again. So if you get hit, make sure you win the fight anyways. Once the fight is over you will be asked to "Finish Him/Her", DO NOT. Instead just punch the opponent and they will go down, then it will say "_______ wins" and reward you with koins. During that screen press start and choose character select. Once you select the character you will be brought to the Ladder again but you will be fighting the same person you just beat and you will not have any losses recorded, whereas if you choose character select prior to after the Finish Them part you will have a loss and could stop you from getting the Hidden Kombatant.

[top]The Broken Road to Platinum

Step 1: Komplete Story Mode.

- The story mode doesn't take long and it describes a slightly different reality from the MK1, 2 and 3 games. The game starts out with Raiden sending himself a message at the end of Armageddon. Raiden tries to change the results from the normal time-line to prevent Armageddon from happening by changing certain key points from the original story.

Step 2: Start Arcade Ladder.

- Start going through Arcade Ladder with all the characters collecting koins and finding hidden kombatants.

Step 3: Komplete the Challenge Tower.

- There are 300 challenges to complete in the tower and most of them are ridiculously easy while a few others may need a few attempts.

Step 4: Finish kompleting Arcade Ladders

- If you got bored of Arcade Ladder and went on it is time to finish up the Arcade Ladder and all its related trophies.

Step 5: Misc Trophies

- Now would be a good time to start collecting misc trophies such as the krypt trophies and any other nonspecific trophies you may need such as fatalities and whatnot.

Step 6: Online

- Head online and attempt to get all the online trophies.

Step 7: Mastering Characters

- Now comes the grind. master all the characters for a trophy, this should be the last step no matter how you go about the game.


[top]Trophies

[top]
Platinum Trophy
You've unlocked all Trophies!

This trophy is the exact same as any other

It will unlock as soon as you unlock the final trophy you are missing in the game.

[top]
Halfway There!
Complete Story Mode 50%

This is a story related trophy and cannot be missed. You will receive this trophy while playing through Story Mode on "Chapter 9: Kitana" after you complete her first fight.

[top]
Back In Time...
Complete Story Mode 100%

This is another story related trophy that is unmissable. This trophy will unlock after you complete the final chapter: "Chapter 17: Raiden". The final battle is against a tough competitor and may take you a few tries. If you are having trouble at any point during the story you can go to Options > Gameplay Settings > Story Difficulty to adjust the difficulty of the fights in story mode to better suit your fighting capabilities.

Here is a video if you would like to visually see a strategy on completing he final boss fight to obtain this trophy.

Toggle Spoiler

[top]
A For Effort
Complete Tutorial Mode

For this trophy you will simply have to go into Tutorial Mode and complete the tutorials. There are 15 Tutorial Missions you must complete. None of the tutorials are difficult. Once you complete the final challenge you will be taken to a congratulations screen and the trophy will unlock.


Here is a video showing the completion of all the tutorial missions.

Toggle Spoiler

[top]
Fatality!
Perform a Fatality!

For this trophy you will have to perform a fatality in either 1P vs 2P or Arcade Ladder. You will not get this trophy in the Fatality Trainer. Simply beat any opponent and when it says "Finish Him", input the code for the character's fatality that you are using. Once you perform your first fatality you will receive this trophy.


Please see the Fatalities/Babalities section below for a list of all character's fatalities.

[top]
Block This!
Perform a 10-hit combo with any fighter

This one is another really easy trophy. All you have to do is choose Sonya Blade as a character in any mode and build up your X-Ray. As soon as your X-Ray is available, hit + to activate it. Sonya Blade's X-Ray attack is an 11 hit combo. Once he X-Ray is finished you will receive the trophy. You basically have no choice but to use this method if you play in the Tower Challenges as it is required for you to pull off Sonya's X-Ray for one of the earlier missions.

Here is a video showing how to successfully pull this off.

Toggle Spoiler

[top]
The Grappler
Perform every fighter's forward and backwards throws

This one is more time consuming then anything. To complete a grab you must hold forward or backward while hitting or hitting + . You will have to complete all character's throws.

You can do this one of two ways. You can complete one of each throw in your first match in Arcade Ladder (since you have to beat Arcade Ladder with each character) or you can complete this in 1P vs 2P since you will have to spend a lot of time with each character anyways.

Here is a video showing all character's forward and backward throws so you can follow along with it to make sure you don't skip a character or accidentally miss one.

*Please note however that you will not be able to achieve this trophy in Practice Mode even though that is where the video takes place, it is just to show each character's throws. Also you are going to have to have Cyber Sub-Zero and Quan-Chi unlocked to receive this trophy.

[top]
Where's The Arcade?
Complete Arcade Ladder with Any Fighter

For this trophy you are going to want to select any character you wish and simply complete the Arcade Ladder Mode for the first time. It doesn't matter who you choose. Once you complete the final round of the tower you will receive this trophy. I recommend playing on beginner just so that it goes by faster.

[top]
Arcade Champion
Complete Arcade Ladder with All Fighters

For this trophy you will have to complete the Arcade Ladder with every character. Each character has their own Arcade Ladder Ending so completing a Tag Ladder will only credit you an Arcade Ladder finish for the character you are using at the end of he final battle. I recommend just playing through normal Arcade Ladder on the easiest settings to help this trophy go by faster.

I recommend setting the rounds to 1 and round timer to 30 seconds.

You will still receive the trophy if you go through Tag Ladder 14 times selecting each character. This is a shorter method to an extent, but should still be played on one rounds to win and 30 second rounds.

*Please note that you will need to have Quan-Chi and Cyber Sub-Zero unlocked to be able to achieve this trophy.

[top]
Finish What You Start!
Perform a Fatality with all playable fighters

For this trophy you are going to have to complete each character's main fatality that is already unlocked at the start of the game. You can either do this in Arcade Ladder or in 1P vs 2P, it does not matter. I recommend doing this in 1P vs 2P and setting the game settings to 1 round to win to make it go by faster. You can also use any of the Kombat Kodes listed in the Cheats, Glitches & Exploits section above to make the matches shorter (Noteably the 2P 50% Health Start kode).

Please refer to the Fatalities/Babalities section below for each character's fatalities.

Here is a video guide showing each characters fatalities in Fatality Trainer to show positioning required to complete the fatality.

Please Note that you will need to have Quan-Chi and Cyber Sub-Zero unlocked to receive this trophy.

Toggle Spoiler

[top]
The Competitor
Complete 200 Versus matches (online OR offline)

For this trophy you simply need to complete 200 multiplayer matches. I recommend going for the online trophies before even attempting this trophy as it may unlock along the way.

Once you come to your 200th Versus match you will receive the trophy. Matches that count toward this trophy include: 1P vs 2P, online ranked matches, online lobby matches, and King of the Hill matches.

This trophy will come very easily along your way to the platinum since 200 is a small number of matches you must play in comparison to the amount of matches you will need o play altogether.

[top]
Ladder Master
Complete Arcade Ladder on max difficulty without using a continue

There have not been any "cheap" methods of receiving this trophy to this point. Until a cheaper method comes along I can only recommend playing with 1 fighter constantly until you get some really good combos. Also learn to defend much more. You can obtain this trophy through Tag Ladder in either single player or 2 player.

Tips to get you through:

- The computer seems to have a difficult time with crossover jumps by jumping over the opponent and hitting them from behind.

- When you get to Shao Kahn and Goro/Kintaro is where things will get hard. Try to stay away from the opponent and use projectiles when you know its safe, otherwise block like you have no other choice and keep moving away. If either corner you it is over.

- Unless you are in a pickle, try to save your X-ray until the ends of matches, this will make it so if you are close in health and the timer is running real low that you can get a good chunk of damage done on the opponent while the timer freezes.

- I suggest starting out and looking to see who is he fighter before Shao Kahn, if it's Goro start over right away. Kintaro seems to taunt more and his attacks do less damage. Overall Kintaro is half the threat Goro is and much less aggressive.

- Scorpion's teleport move while in a jumping back jump seems to usually always throw the opponent off. There is something about that move that really throws off the opponent so try that into a F, , combo or straight to an uppercut for some good damage.

- Being repetitive will give the computer a chance to anticipate your attacks and block more frequently so have two or three different combos to use on your opponents.

[top]
Don't Jump!
Win A Ranked Online Match without jumping

There are two ways you can go about doing this one. If you are fighting in an online ranked match against someone who barely has any idea what the Kode Input in the loading screen is for they will probably wind up copying the kode you input, so you have a chance at inputting the kode for no jumping. If this is the case simply try hard to win the match.

If you are not so lucky with the kode input I recommend just trying your hardest to remember not to jump and try to win the match.

Unfortunately this has o be done in ranked matches so it will be pretty difficult to accomplish but his isn't nearly the hardest online trophy, keep at it and you shall prevail.

[top]
What Does This Button Do??
Complete Arcade Ladder without blocking (allowed to continue)

This trophy can either be really difficult or really easy depending on how much you tend to block during fighting matches. I recommend changing the gameplay options to 30 second rounds and 1 round to win to get this done faster. Do not use the button at all during the entire Arcade Ladder or you won't be able to receive the trophy. Don't worry about dying or anything, just stay on the offense as much as possible.

[top]
Tough Guy!
Win an Online Match

This trophy is boostable but shouldn't really have to be boosted at all. You just need to go into online mode and fight either a Ranked Match, Lobby Match, or King of the Hill Match. Simply win the match and you will receive the trophy.

[top]
Robots Rule!
Win Arcade Tag Ladder with robot Sektor and Cyrax

For this one you have to go into Arcade Tag Ladder and select Sektor and Cyrax BOTH in their original costumes. If you select either character's alternate costume you will not receive the trophy.

Simply go through the ladder and defeat Shao Kahn. I recommend going for this trophy before you finish the game with either Sektor or Cyrax so no matter who you beat the ladder with you will get the trophy and credit for beating one of their Arcade Ladders.

[top]
Outstanding!
Win 10 Ranked Online Matches in a row

This one comes down to two things, skill and luck. If you are lucky enough you will get pitted against people who aren't really all that great at the game and you will get your trophy this way. Otherwise make sure you stick with one character and learn them really well and take them online.

Either way 10 is a pretty high number to reach in random matches because you never know who you are going to run into. As of right now this trophy is completely unboostable but if a way arises I will be sure to add it here.

* Some people have noted that it takes a bit more then 10 wins to obtain this trophy. If i does not unlock for you after ten, try to keep going until it pops.

[top]
Cyber Challenger
Complete 100 Online Matches

This should come relatively quickly with all the King of the Hill matches you will need to complete for the respect points trophies. Simply keep playing online and after your 100th fight you will receive the trophy.

[top]
Wavenet...
Win 100 total Online Matches

This trophy is boostable in private matches. I recommend doing the ranked trophies first and cleaning this up in King of the Hill matches. You probably get this along the way of getting the respect points you will need so I wouldn't worry about this trophy at all.

Once you get your 100th win online you will receive this trophy.

[top]
Humiliation
Get a Flawless Victory in an Online Match

This can be boosted between two players in a private ranked match. however it is not necessary. You are going to have to win 100 matches online anyways so I am sure a flawless victory will be achieved in this.


If not, see There Can Only Be One! for tips on how to boost King of the Hill wins. I recommend doing this trophy along the way.

Undertaker
Unlock 50% of the Krypt

See The Krypt Keeper.

[top]
The Krypt Keeper
Unlock 100% of the Krypt

For this trophy you are going to have to keep playing the game and collecting koins to spend in the krypt. Doing kombos, fatalities, babalities, winning matches, playing in story, getting flawless victories, and completing Tower Missions all give you koins. You are going to go to extras > Krypt to spend the koins. I wouldn't recommend going for this trophy too early in the game because you will need a lot of koins to purchase every last item in the Krypt.

Along with the chests that you have to spend your koins on, there are also 4 secret chests hidden in the krypt, one in each section. See the Krypt locations down below for the location to these secret chests, they are all cost free and have a surprise in them for finding them. Although it's not a great prize, you still need to collect these four chests for the trophy.

There are four sections to the krypt; Deadlands, Bloodmarsh, Meadow of Despair, and Hollow of Infestation.

Here is how many tombs each section of the krypt contain and how many koins it would cost to purchase everything.
Deadlands - 121 tombs - 119,910 koins total
Bloodmarsh - 83 tombs - 81,240 koins total
Meadow of Despair - 55 tombs - 56,260 koins total
Hollow of Infestation - 40 tombs - 39,480 koins total

Altogether you will need 296,890 koins to purchase everything.

*Note - Apparently the secret chests are not required for the trophy but if you collect each of those chests you have the option of not collecting any one of the chests in each area. Each hidden chest can substitute another chest in its area for earning the trophy.

[top]
There Will Be Blood!
Spill 10000 pints of blood

This is basically story related. You will be shedding blood from other players offline and online all the time. Unless you turn the blood off in the game this will be among one of the first few trophies you receive in the game. Simply hitting opponents will shed some blood. Playing through story mode will also make your opponents shed LOTS of blood. Just keep playing without thinking of this trophy and it will come in no time.

[top]
License to Kill
Complete Fatality Trainer

Fatality Trainer is a mode in the tutorials where you can test out character's main fatalities. All you have to do to receive the trophy is go into Fatality Trainer and select any character. Complete their fatality and you will receive the trophy.

[top]
Ultimate Respect!
Earn 2500 Respect Points via king of the hill Matches

This one isn't difficult since it can be boosted. I recommend going into King of the Hill matches with numerous people (The more people the higher the score can be at the end, however the longer you will have to wait for your turn to fight). Take turns being the king and giving each other a 10 at the end of the match. You MUST win the match to get any of the respect points.

In a full room the max points you can get is 70 per match. You can make this go by faster in the boosting room if whoever is going to lose inputs the kode for quarter health and takes the loss fast.


* If you can get a full room, the best and most fair way to boost this is to have everyone give 10s at the end of the match and sequence it like this:
Player 1 beats Player 2
Player 1 beats Player 3
Player 1 beats Player 4
Player 1 beats Player 5
Player 1 beats Player 6
Player 1 beats Player 7
Player 1 beats Player 8
Player 2 beats Player 1
Player 2 beats Player 3
etc...

This will earn each player 420 Respect points each time they get a turn and with the Quarter Health Kode this shouldn't take nearly as long as it normally would.

If you choose not to boost then keep going into King of the Hill matches and try to remain on top of the hill for as long as you possibly can to rack up the points.

[top]
There Can Be Only One!
Win 10 king of the hill Matches in a row

This trophy can be boosted and with the spammers in the online I recommend it. Simply go online and partner up with someone else and in a private room get ten wins against your friend and vice-versa. You will also be able to give each other Respect Points during this boost and any other time you play King of the Hill matches.

If you choose not to play against a friend and want to do this against other people playing the game, then there is nothing I can say except to choose a character you are really familiar with and use well.

[top]
Throws Are For Champs
Perform 8 throws in an Online Ranked Match

This one isn't really too bad. You can perform your 8 throws and still not win the match but get the trophy. You don't even have to do all 8 in a single round, you can split them 50/50, 60/40, etc.

Both forward and backward grabs will count for the trophy.

Once you land your 8th grab the trophy will pop.

[top]
Turtle!
Win both rounds with timer running out in an Online Ranked Match

This one will prove to be a rather difficult trophy to obtain. You will have to play defensively the whole match basically. Once you start to attempt this the opponent will realize what you are trying to do and either be nice by giving you he wins you need or they will have no mercy on you. I recommend going into this and beating them down to as lose health as possible and keep blocking and dodging attacks.

You will have to make both rounds have the timer go down to 0 in order for this to count. There is really nothing more I can say then to play defensively and have a bit of luck on your side.

Another trick that may be worth a try is to take advantage of teleporting moves to keep your enemy at a distance.

[top]
I'm Not Dead Yet!
Comeback with under 10% health in an Online Ranked Match

This trophy can be quite difficult but is completely possible. I recommend saving your X-Ray and waiting until you have under a quarter health to use it while your opponent has more then 50% health. (Some people have reported that the opponent needs to be close to full on health)

I recommend keep playing online normally and wait until you get pit up against someone who doesn't really have an idea of what they are doing. Then try it against them.

If you have under 10% health and beat your opponent who has over 50% health you will receive the trophy.

You can try to send a message to your opponent during the character select screen asking them to let you get your trophy and offer them the win and the opportunity to receive the trophy also.

Cold Fusion
Unlock Hidden Fighter "Cyber Sub-Zero"

To unlock Cyber Sub-Zero you must play in Story Mode until you get to Kabal's Chapter which is Chapter 13. In Kabal's Storyline you must fight Cyber Sub-Zero once you return to Earthrealm. Once you complete the fight Cyber Sub-Zero will be unlocked for play in the game and you will receive the trophy.

[top]
e-X-cellent!
Successfully land every playable fighter's X-Ray

For this you simply have to complete each character's X-Ray attack. Each character only has one but some will require more specific timings to connect. I recommend doing these in 1P vs 2P matches by setting the rounds to 1 and inputting the Unlimited Super Kode located in the cheats section. This will let you go in, perform the X-Ray and finish the match fast. Once you have completed each character's X-Ray you will receive the trophy.


For visual aid, here is a video showing all X-Rays and the conditions in which you must meet to connect with them:

Luck Be A Lady
Get all MK Dragons in Test Your Luck

This trophy can prove to be a real pain to get. You are going to have to go into Single Player Fight > Test Your Luck Mode. In Test Your Luck there will be four reels. The first reel determines your opponent and the other three determine handicaps for the match. The point of this trophy is to get the second, third, and fourth reels to land on the Dragon Emblem for the "Lucky" bonus.

The only problem here is that sometimes any one of the reels may not even have an emblem to land on. So this trophy is literally 100% Luck.

There are two ways to go about getting this trophy. Either you can grind it out while you are playing, or grind it out while you do other things.

To grind it out while being at the controller it is best to start the match and if you visually see that there isn't even any koins in any of the reels, then hit start and retry. Keep doing this until you see that all three reels at the end have koins. If they do then hope Lady Luck is on your side.

To grind this without being at the system you are going to need a turbo controller. If you have one start a Test Your Luck match using Cyber Sub-Zero on beginner. Leave the controller pressing and check back later to see if you have received the trophy. (I only say Cyber Sub-Zero because on beginner the AI will be dumb enough to still lose to his constant spamming of and you will get some wins needed for mastering him.)

A lot of people have been claiming to get this trophy fairly quicly on Challenge 224 of the Challenge Tower. I also received all MK Dragon koins on my first attempt at this challenge but already had the trophy from Test Your Luck Mode.

You've Got Style!
Unlock all Alternate Costumes

You can unlock Alternate Costumes one of two ways. You can either buy them in the krypt (which you will need to anyways in order to get Krypt Keeper) or you can beat the character's Arcade Ladder (which you will need to accomplish with all characters anyway). Either way you collect the costumes is completely irrelevant.

Once you have collected the costumes with whatever method you desire you must then go into Nekropolis and select each character so their collectible item is placed in front of them on the stone. Once you have all the collectibles on every character's respective stones you will receive the trophy.

*Please note that you will NOT be able to purchase Kratos' alternate costume from the Krypt since he is an exclusive character. You must complete Arcade Ladder with him in order to unlock his.

You do not need to unlock any of the concept art located in the Krypt or have Mileena's third alternate costume to receive this trophy.

Locations for each character's alternate attire from within the Krypt are located in their respective sections in the "Krypt Locations and Tower Mode unlocks" section located below.

Here is a video showing each character's alternate costumes:

You receive Mileena's Flesh Pits costume by completing the final mission in the Challenge Tower. It is a long way up the tower but once you complete Challenge #300 you will receive a congratulatory screen featuring Mileena in her Flesh Pits costume. This is when you will receive the trophy.

*Note - You can also receive his trophy by buying out Challenge 300 but you won't receive he Tower Master trophy.

My Kung Fu Is Strong
Gain Mastery of 1 Fighter

See My Kung Fu Is Stronger.

[top]
My Kung Fu Is Stronger
Gain Mastery of All Fighters

This is probably one of the longest trophies you will encounter in any fighting game. This is also the trophy that will deter most people away from receiving this platinum.

The absolute bare minimum gameplay time to receive this trophy is approximately 336 hours. This time is already cut in half using the Tag method, otherwise the bare minimum time would be 672 hours.

To Master a character you will need to reach the following milestones:
-100 victories
-100 -alities
-150 X-Rays Landed
-10,000 Pints of Blood Spilled
-24 Hours of Play

* You can check the status of your characters by heading into Nekropolis and selecting any character and viewing their stats. That screen shows your progress towards each of the milestones.

There is no way to really describe what is needed for each since it is pretty self explanatory.

There are a few methods to use that can knock down actual playtime on these conditions.

I would set it up into these different sections:
- First go for X-Rays. The X-Rays suck because of the time consumption behind them and while in an X-Ray the time stops and doesn't count for characters used but unfortunately it is necessary. Set the game settings to 3 Rounds to win with an infinite timer. Choose a 2 on 2 match in 2P mode. Choose a partner that still needs time as that character to help knock some of the time requirement out of the way. Next input the kode on both controllers for Unlimited Super Gauge. Now you can do one of two things, you can either just win the 3 rounds using X-Rays or you can stretch it out to 5 Rounds. If you choose the three rounds method you should be able to get 18-24 X-Ray moves per match. If you choose to stretch it out to take advantage of the full 5 rounds you should get between 33 and 38 X-Rays depending on how much damage the character's X-Ray deals.

I recommend only taking advantage of the 5 rounds if you already have enough wins and fatalities or if you find yourself having trouble inputting the kode for unlimited supers between rounds.

- Next go for 100 victories + 100 -alities at the same time. Set the rounds to 1 and timer to 30 seconds. Use the Kode located in the cheats section to make 2P have only quarter health. Finish him quickly and perform any -ality of your choosing, whether it be a Stage Fatality, normal Fatality, or Babality.

- By now between the fatalities, beating your opponents for wins, and doing the X-Rays you should have mustered up enough Pints of Blood for the character. If not simply go into Arcade Ladder or 1P vs 2P and beat the daylights out of other people until you have enough.

- The last part is the most grueling part. I recommend that if you have a turbo controller, make damn good use of it here. Set yourself up in a 1P vs 2P match and set it up so that your character is performing a single punch or kick that doesn't make them lunge forward so they stay in place so the game doesn't sit "idle". Leave the match on and go do whatever other things you may need to get done, such as sleep, or work, etc.

If you do not have a turbo controller you can attempt to get into a Tag Practice Mode and rubber-band so it senses your character blocking so that you don't "sit idle".

* Note - Once all of he requirements have been met you will have to go into Arcade Ladder and choose your character that has already had the requirements fulfilled and perform a few more X-Rays, Fatalities, and wins to make the game recognize that the requirements have been fulfilled.

Since the secondary and stage fatalities aren't really needed as a whole for any specific trophies I decided to input them in this section since you will need to perform 100 -alities per character. This way you can mix up the carnage

Tower Master
Complete all Tower missions

For this trophy you are going to have to COMPLETE all 300 of the missions in Tower Mode.

I will try to come up with a list of the more difficult missions and add tips and tricks to them in the future. For a video guide on how to do Challenge #300 please see Best...Alternate...Ever!.

Tag, You're It!
Perform and land a Tag Combo

For this trophy simply head into 1P vs. 2P Tag Fight. Choose any two characters and any two characters to fight against. beat your dummy opponents until you have obtained at least 1 Super Gauge filled at the bottom. Once you do, hit start and go to the command list. Switch over to super moves and locate your Tag Combo inputs. Simply use your tag combo on your opponent and you will receive the trophy.

All characters have different Tag Combos but here is an example of some: D, F ; B, F ; etc.

Complet-ality
Perform 1 of each type of "-ality"

For this trophy you simply need to preform 1 stage fatality, 1 fatality and 1 babality of your choosing. They don't even have to be from the same character. Please see the character you want to perform a babality/fatality with under the Fatality/Babality! section located below for a list of character's known Babalities.

Once you complete 1 Stage Fatality, 1 Fatality and 1 Babality he trophy will unlock.

Finish Him?
Perform any fighter's hidden finishing move

Finishing moves are basically performing Babalities. A Babality is another type of Fatality offered in the game. The circumstances have to be the same as any fatality, but instead of inputting a fatality code, instead input one of the babality codes. Please see the character you want to perform a babality with under the Fatality/Babality! section located below for a list of character's known Babalities.

Ultimate Humiliation
Perform every fighter's hidden finishing move

What is more humiliating then losing a match? Maybe losing a match and then being turned into a crying baby for everyone's entertainment?

For this trophy you will need to perform each character's babalities. The babalities are all performed at a far distance away from the opponent. It is not necessary but to make this trophy go by fast I recommend playing in 1P vs 2P and changing the settings to 1 Round to win and 30 second rounds. You can also input the kode (located in the cheats section) for "Player 2 Quarter Health".

Here is a video showing each characters babality performed on themselves so you can see every babality in the game as well as the character performing them (which is what is really only needed).

You Found Me!
Discover and fight Hidden Kombatant 1 in Arcade Ladder

For this trophy you are going to have to play in Arcade Ladder. This is one of the more difficult Hidden Challenges to get into. What you are going to want to do is not lose a single round at all until you reach Shang Tsung. Once you get to Shang Tsung you are going to have to get a Flawless Victory in both rounds and perform a fatality on Shang Tsung. Once you perform the fatality on him you will be taken into the Lair where you will be informed you have found a Hidden Kombatant. The Hidden Kombatant is Jade. Once you start the fight against Jade the trophy will pop.


- If you are having a problem with fulfilling the requirements for this Hidden Kombat fight please see the Tips section for a nice trick to making this easier.

- NOTE: A lot of people are claiming that they get their double flawless and fatality but the Hidden Fight never shows up. It is absolutely mandatory that you perform the fatality on Shang Tsung himself and not while he is transformed because the game will not register who was fatalitized correctly.

Hide and Seek
Discover and fight Hidden Kombatant 2 in Arcade Ladder

For this trophy you are going to have to play in Arcade Ladder. The stage you want for this one is the Forest. While you are fighting in the forest, look in the background for Smoke. He usually pops out from a tree on your far right, however, he has popped out from behind other trees. While he is sticking his head out from behind the tree you have to press down and select at the same time. When you do this correctly you will defeat your opponent immediately and a pop-up will inform you that you have discovered a secret kombatant.

You have to complete the match without blocking, and you have to win both rounds in a row without losing either. In Round 2 you can look in the background and see Noob standing to the left of the block (your right). As long as he is sanding there you are still on path to fighting him.
