    Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe for the PS3 or Xbox 360  

    All of the DC bad guys and the Mortal Kombat warriors in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe perform fatalities as their finishing moves. In this article, we'll provide you with information, hints and tips on the fatalities for these characters. We'll list the commands for the fatalities, along with the distance you should be standing according to the following information. "Close" means the fatality won't work unless you're standing right next to your opponent when you press the correct button sequence. "Sweep" indicates that you need to stand one or two steps back from your opponent, but still within distance to execute a leg sweep. "Far" indicates that you need to stand at least one jump length away from your opponent before executing the button sequence. You should also make a note that you can hold the Block button while entering the button sequence for fatalities, which will stop your character from moving out of position to execute the fatality. Holding the Block button is also useful for stopping yourself from jumping into the air when executing moves that require you to press up on the control pad.
