Complete Story Mode 100%

Story Mode follows the events of the first three Mortal Kombat games but offering a new alternate twist on the saga. There are 16 Chapters that must be completed and 67 fights total. You must follow one character for each Chapter as the story unfolds. You can change the difficulty to Beginner if you go to Options in the main menu.

Johnny Cage (Reptile, Baraka, Sonya Blade, Kano)
Sonya Blade (Sub-Zero, Raiden, Jade/Kitana, Kano)
Scorpion (Kung Lao, Nightwolf, Cyrax/Sektor, Sub-Zero)
Cyrax (Sheeva, Baraka, Johnny Cage, Sektor)
Liu Kang (Ermac, Kitana, Scorpion/Quan Chi, Goro, Shang Tsung)
--End of First Tournament--

Jax (Baraka, Johnny Cage, Jade, Sheeva)
Smoke (Kitana, Kano, Sub-Zero/Reptile, Sektor)
Sub-Zero (Cyrax, Ermac, Reptile, Scorpion)
Kitana (Smoke/Johnny Cage, Jade, Mileena, Shang Tsung)
Jade (Baraka, Sheeva, Mileena, Smoke)
Kung Lao (Noob, Goro, Shang Tsung/Quan Chi, Kintaro)
Liu Kang vs Shao Khan
--End of Second Tournament--

Stryker (Reptile, Mileena, Kintaro, Ermac)
Kabal (Kano, Mileena/Noob, Cyber Sub-Zero, Sheeva)
Cyber Sub-Zero (Sektor, Kintaro/Goro, Ermac, Noob)
Nightwolf (Quan Chi, Cyrax, Sektor, Sindel)
Raiden (Scorpion, Jax-Stryker-Kabal, Kitana-Nightwolf-Kung Lao, Liu Kang, Shao Khan)

When fighting against Shao Khan the first time, hit him with an uppercut whenever he taunts and duck under his spears. Use a low fireball as much as you can to whittle his health down. The second time you fight him teleport behind him and uppercut repeatedly.

You should unlock "Halfway There!" after Kitana's battle with Johnny Cage and Smoke.

With every character or only with one?

Probably just with one, since it's only worth 20G

Story mode...Not arcade mode...Story mode is gonna just be a mode where you play as specifically designed characters that change as the story progresses. Arcade mode is where they have singular endings for the character you beat it with. :D

@5. You play as a bunch of different characters. It changes as you progress.

Story mode is fairly long compared to the ladder matches.

each chapter in story mode consists of about 4 different fights and there are about 16/17 chapters.

Can this achievement be earned on beginner difficulty?

Comment #10 by BrotherDarkness
Wednesday, April 20, 2011 @ 01:30:09 PM

It can be achieved on Beginner and it almost has to be. Defeating Shao Kahn the last time in Story Mode is a 10 out of 10 for difficulty. His rage inducing difficulty to be beaten on normal difficulty is already become web legend.

Yeah, Shao Kahn is a bitch to beat in that last battle. I just stayed back and when he would try to attack, I would teleport behind him and uppercut him. NOTE: Only teleport right as he starts his attack or he'll just turn around and hit you.

i used that same method to defeat him. i didnt know ya could change the difficulty til after i beat the story mode though lol. i felt pretty dumb.

This was what I did. Also I didn't know we could change the mode so this was on normal.

It's not too's just annoying. ^_^

You can do it!

There is a other way to beaat Shao Khan. First things first you will need to get first hit for the extra super bar. Yust keep backing up until he will provoke you. When he is doing that use the Electric Fly with RT for extra power. Yust keep doing this and he will be down in no time.

Comment #15 by CoNS7aR

Just wait till he provoke's you then do the Electric Fly move and keep doing tht or you can just wait for the timer to run down as if u have more life than Shao Kahn you will automatically thats how i beat him.

Comment #16 by StriderNo9
Saturday, April 23, 2011 @ 09:43:37 PM

Easiest way I found to beat Khan was to teleport and sweep, and when he gets up he almost always tries to attack, and then teleport and sweep. Just repeat. Otherwise this guy is super effing tough.

Can you change difficulties mid-story mode? I've been playing on medium this whole time and Shao Khan is just wailing away on me. I don't want to go into the options menu and change the difficulty to normal or beginner and lose ALL my progress on the lengthy (but enjoyable) story mode.

I defeated shao kahn with teleport & uppercut.. Soon as he starts to do something (throw projectile or taunting etc.) just teleport and uppercut him :) best way i found if u don't want to beat him legit ;)

@17 Yes you can change difficulties mid-story mode. I went through on normal, and on the final battle I changed to easy to beat Shao Kahn. I was able to stand all the way across the screen from him and launch lightning bolt after lightning bolt. Same method I used to beat him with Liu Kang (except with fireballs, of course).

I did not know u could change either i'm fighting him now on medium he pisses me off more than Seth did in street fighter. Thank u, Thank u. your info has saved me having to buy a new controller was about to throw it up the wall. I tried all of the methods you guys mentioned they are all class its just if he catches u its all over that shoulder dash is lethal.Feel like i should finish it on medium now though but fuck it im gonna do him on begginer

Do I have to quit the story mode to change difficulties? Or can I do it by just pausing the game?

Struggling to hell with this.
when I tried to change difficulty it said it'd wipe me clean.
Gonna put my save on a memory card and try again So have a back up if it fails

Comment #26 by DENAz666
Monday, June 06, 2011 @ 01:49:21 AM

^^ It doesn't wipe it clean, it just overwrites your previous (settings) save... but it doesn't affect your story progression.

I don't think changing the difficulty mid story changes anything, Shaokahn was being me fucking senseless so I put it on beginner and he's still destroying me. I can't even touch the damn guy. Hands down the most annoying game I have ever played, all this for only 20G, wtf.

I beat Shao Kahn on normal and let me tell you, it took me FOREVER since I wasn't great w/ raiden and story mode was the first thing I did. I was ready to throw something at him. Nice ending to it for the next mortal kombat (I wont tell just in case).

@32, i think i said more. Lui kang is the worst character in the game and you have to do 2 boss fights with him. I can barely fight Shao Kahn in the 2nd tournament on beginner. Besides Lui Kang is a gay ninja with the way he talks when he fights. So both together equal a rage fest.

Shao Kahn is easy to defeat with the PUSSY!!! technique..

just try to hit a uppercut (below+Y)
then jump 2 times towards him and one jump back
in air hit x and finish with the uppercut
when you get hit then start the technique over again
use x-ray when you can.

oldest mortal kombat trick in the book
i defeated shao khan with liu kang in 1 time and 2 times with raiden

and btw the difficulty doesn't effect the story mode or the tower..
it only effects arcade

Only 20 points? -__-

Comment #39 by Negative Creep
Monday, June 04, 2012 @ 05:52:20 PM

To bet him with Liu Kang, just keep up a continuous stream of fireballs, only stopping to launch an X ray. I was getting utterly destroyed until I tried this, when it worked first time. Hardly fun, but the only way to beat cheap tactics is to use cheap tactics

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 @ 09:53:09 PM

I got so frustrated on this last fight I just gave up. Like haven't touched the game in a year gave up. So frustrating. And for 20 points? Forget it!
