Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection Achievements


Perform your first Animality  

This can ONLY be done in UMK3. You must win the round by beating your opponent in the 3rd round and giving him mercy. They will come back to life with a tiny bit of health left. Defeat them again and press a series of specific buttons to turn into an animal and kill your opponent.

Pick Sub-Zero and beat your opponent in the first round, lose in the second, then win in the third. When 'Finish Him!" appears, quickly jump back and hold the RUN button and then press four times for a Mercy. Defeat your opponent again then, on 'Finish Him', touch your opponent and while holding block, press quickly.

This is the hardest out of all the "alities" 1st you have to go 3 rounds, play with a 2nd controller, let 2nd player win 1st, then win the next 2 rounds, when the "finish him appears on the screen, be on the opposite side of the board and perform a "Mercy" by holding run button and pressing down 3 times then releasing run button, once u get the "finish him" message again, perform the Animality. I used Reptile's which is down, down, down, up, X..u can hold the block button while inputting the moves so your player won't jump, just release block befoe pressing X and the achievement will pop

^ Accurate.

Performing a mercy can be a pain though. I've read everywhere that it's down three times, or it's down four times. To be honest, I just spam the hell out of down while I'm holding run and then let go. Works every time.

it's 3 times and it's much easier to use cyrax for the animality. U,U,D,D while you are next to them. i just held the block button while i entered the code and bam, got it on my first try.

After reading what you have to do to atempt an animality, I managed it in first
try. Kitana.

Everything you said is right except when performing the Mercy, you must press Down 4 times not 3

Mercy = 3x down
If you don't belive it try it or if you still don't believe it go to official all MK titles site and check UMK3. 3x down

Nightwolf... Very simple.. you can only do a mercy in the 3rd round, go all the way across the screen and hold LB press down X4 and do his animality which should be back,back,down,down,

took me a few to do this, used nightwolf. What i did was on the 3rd fight (used 2nd controller) i got my enemy down to the ping sound right before the last punch then did an uppercut giving me time to just do one backwards jump. Then i help the LB (run) button and pressed down only 3 times, i then let go of Run right after the 3 downs and Mercy showed up over head i then jumped forward hit my enemy one more time, again finish him showed up and i then just pressed forward , forward, down , down

I found Kung Lao the easiest for this. You can use his hat throw to stay on the other side of the screen to use mercy. I found hold LB then down 3 times and releases LB worked for mercy for me everytime. His animality is LB x 4 then RT while touching the other player. I didnt get it the first try but on my second I just mash LB a few extra times before pressing RT and it worked.

Make it with Sub-Zero, his animality only works if you hold block.
