I'm playing the new Mortal Kombat and I am having trouble beating Shao Kahn in the story mode with Liu Kang. Does anyone have tips and strategies on how to beat him? He's very cheap.

    Wait till you have to fight him with Raiden.... – Supercereal Apr 22 '11 at 20:11

Do the bike kick and the flying kick every time he taunts. Throw in some upper cuts when he blocks the flying kick.

  • I finally cheesed him with low fireball and flying kick him if he comes too close. – Thierry Lam Apr 23 '11 at 11:54

I think I found an even easier way:

Jump backwards, so there is a full screen distance between you and Kahn, then do the high fireball (back, forward, X) over and over again. After a few fireballs you will feel the rythym.

In this state, Kahn will only do three things:

a) block, you will only damage him slightly
b) throw a lance, if your rhythm is good, he will be interrupted, otherwise you will be damaged, but he won't do anything else if you continue fast enough
c) taunt, free damage

Cheap, but works.

  • Yea, cheap is pretty much the only way to beat him. – Andy Jun 12 '11 at 18:01
