Mortal Kombat Goes Preschool in Babality Montage

There's nothing more satisfying than beating an opponent in a fight and turning him into a baby.

Mortal Kombat has always been a violent series of games, and NetherRealm's newly released reboot is no different. Players can dismember their opponents to their heart's content as blood sprays everywhere in gruesome detail. Who cares about that though when it also allows you to turn your opponent into a baby?

That's right, the babality is back, an alternate finishing move first seen in Mortal Kombat II. In NetherRealm's Mortal Kombat, the move is better than ever.

GameTrailers put together a montage of Mortal Kombat's babalities, which now feature funny animations. Shang Tsung tries to steal the soul of his teddy bear, Reptile turns into an egg, Raiden scares himself with his own lightning, and Jade's own bladed boomerang turns around and knocks her right in the head. Baby Kratos (PS3 version only) probably has the best, ripping the head off of his Medusa doll, while Sub Zero gets the reward for most silly. You'll see what I mean.

For some reason, watching these violent combatants turned into babies is vastly entertaining. I wonder if Mortal Kombat has animalities this year too? If you've had your fill of babalities, you could also watch this fatality montage, but it's not as cute.

Aww...baby Scorpion! Hahahaha! "Get over here!!!" Hahahaha!

Oh dear, now we wait for some ill-informed news corporation to get wind of this and spark some huge controversy surrounding the depiction of babies in a violent fighting game.

It's good to see babalities come back. But even better to see again is HD Quan Chi beating a dude to death with the dude's leg.

HAHAHA... Sub Zero's was the best for sure :D

Talk about youthanasia!

WAIT WAIT IVE ALWAYS WANTED TO USE THIS
um-hum
"ENTIRE TEAM IS BABIES"
"WHO SENT ALL THESE BABIES TO FIGHT"
"LET US FIGHT MAN VERSES TINY BABY MAN"
and it seems that kratos in the only one who doesn't cry making him the manliest baby evah

shouldnt baby Jax have human arms? baby Johnny Cage doesnt have tattoos...
and what about the cyborg characters? what happens if they're 'Babalitied'

qua chi has daddy issues

I have to say, it's quite amusing seeing Kratos turned into a baby. XD

They're all silly, but I can see some people getting seriously pissed at Stryker's...

A baby with a real gun is not funny.

Technically a baby shouldn't be able to write coherent English or understand how to attempt signature attacks like the hat-throw either. It's just a silly thing where the adult character gets turned into a baby. MST3K motto time.:)

Where is the baby eating!?!

This is Mortal Kombat!

I demand dining on spines and Bugs Bunny pots w/ carrots....

It occurs to me that if you got a baby mortal kombat fight mode it would be far greater than the regular mode, even if the violence had to be toned way down.

I liked how they used the Jokers fatality for whoever that was in the second video [sorry, I am rusty with MK characters].

But honestly, am I wrong to be disappointed that none of that Babalities ended with the victim being punted?

It's not qoute turning back time on them it's sort of reducing them from their present state which is why they attemp to try a few special moves and fail.They had the cyborgs in the video too.

Random thought: Looks like the controls get locked as soon as the animation starts. I'm unsurprised to see they're not repeating the baby dismembering mistake of the arcade era.

Also: Baraka is one UGLY baby.:)

If only the game would actually tell us how to do these. Hell, they're not even in the goddamn strategy guide.

I wish they had put Go-Karts back in :P

I think Cage's is Forward, Back, Forward, Circle (B) or Back, Forward, Back, Circle (B) at jump range. Cyrax's is also very easy but cant remember it.

However the babalities are awesome and so are most of the fatalities (1 or 2 are kinda meh but most are amazingly creative) and I hope someone finds Brutalities and Friendships in the game :P

That and I think he is the only one with facial hair and a six-pack...

Also, Cyrax must pay loads in child support after every MK turny...

Baby Jade sounds like Samantha from Call of Duty: World at war and Black Ops zombies.

Awwwwww ikkle baby Reptile is an egg! ^.^

Ooooh...that's BAD..

A baby with a real gun is not funny.

And babies with magical powers, razor-sharp weapons, and a propensity for tearing off toys heads and/or sucking out their souls is?

Priorities, sir, priorities. A gun is the least of our tiny baby worries.

Aww! They are cute. And I feel bad for the ones that cry and scare themselves... aww.

Even as a Baby, Kratos can rip your head off.

IGN has a guide on how to do all fatalities includin babialities and where to get alternate costumes in the krypt as well as secret fatalities.

Cute, however I find that all of the fatalities seem rather boring in this game.

Thank you for that. Very much.

EDIT:

Goddamnit. Noob's Babality isn't there.

Dammit. Who gave the portal gun to baby Saibot?

*barfs in mouth*

I should've stopped at the babalities...

imma gonna be sick..

Daaawwwwwwwwwwww, it's so cute! All they want is to rip out your organs and sever your arms and legs, is that too much to ask for?

On the fatalities montage, they actually redid the Joker's Fatality from MK vs. DC?

Baby Scorpion is adorable! Most of the rest are kinda creepy...

Stryker's is the best hands down. I mean he shot a gun! XD
