Where did this come from?

SpryCarrion

The lesser-known PC port of Mortal Kombat II, emulated via DOSBox.

I've never seen that sprite before. The male ninjas always had an expansion sequence that was broken...

I believe it was Revision 1.4 that featured the faulty expansion sequence.

For Reptile/Sub-Zero/Scorpion, the first sprite prior to inflating, and the last one before exploding (shown above) were corrupted and only partially visible. The two sprites were removed in the following update, leaving the ninja's with only four total in the fatality sequence.

Despite the arcade trouble, the PC-DOS port of MKII features the entire sequence proper. I'm pretty sure it's the only version out there that actually does.

Are there videos of the new sequence? I'm very interested.

There is one still around that I am aware of. Here you go!

For the sake of reference, here are the defective arcade sprites in comparison to the PC-DOS version. A noticeable loss in quality, but it's better than nothing.

You're amazing.

SpryCarrion

I appreciate the compliment, but I cannot take credit for ripping the two defective sprites. I downloaded a complete sprite pack for the MKII ninja's and it just so happens they were included in the folder.

Ultimately, I'm just small beans.
