‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Brutalities: Every Finishing Move and How to Do Them

Brutalities were alternative finishers introduced in Mortal Kombat X. They make a return in the new release Mortal Kombat 11. What makes Brutalities different from Fatalities are that they can come out of nowhere before the end of the match. Each Brutality needs special conditions to trigger, usually when a special move is the final hit of a match.

Players can find each fighter’s Brutalities in the moves list, but only two can be viewed at first. The rest need to be unlocked, so you have to find them in the Krypt. If you want to know where the Brutalities are, check out our list of chest contents, here.

Here’s every Brutality in Mortal Kombat 11:
