Defeating the Bosses

Motaro:   After having seen both of his Shokan henchmen beaten in the first two tournaments, Shao Kahn drafts a new type of warrior you do his dirty work - a centaurian named Motaro. Motaro is a huge monster with a giant upper-body and the lower-body of a powerful horse. His powerful hooves can severely damage an opponent, along with his huge arms, explosive energy balls, and powerful blows.

Defeating Motaro:
When you fight against Motaro, you must always be prepared to counter his jump attacks with a roundhouse or uppercut. Once knocked down, quickly run up to him and complete a large, powerful combo of your own. He will most likely block the first few hits, but you will most of the time connect the last few. He has been known to not block at all, making it easier for you to defeat him. Another thing, most of Motaro's attacks can be countered with a quick uppercut. Another way to defeat this huge monster is to jump kick and then counter with a strong combo.  I prefer a lot of jump kicking because it works.  Last and most important, do not use projectiles against Motaro. His outer skin has the ability to deflect projectiles and hurtle them towards you.

Shao Kahn:     As in the second tournament, the final opponent is the powerful Shao Kahn. Shao Kahn is tired of having the tournament slip through his fingers. So this time, he's returned with a new look, and new, powerful attacks. Shao Kahn is a very skilled, but a slow fighter, and should still be approached with much caution.

Defeating Shao Kahn:
The most basic strategy for defeating this huge guy is to duck and wait until he attacks with a Knee Uppercut or a Shoulder Ram. Then quickly counter with an uppercut. Then do one of your character's most devastating combo. Once finished, repeat the process until you hopefully defeat Shao Kahn. Another technique is to use your character's projectile attacks a lot.  They don't bounce off like they do with Motaro. When being approached by Kahn, keep him away by sweeping him. Usually Shao Kahn will perform his Shoulder Ram and the sweep will knock him out of it. The most effective tactic to use against Kahn is to use a character who has a combo that will knock him into the air so you can quickly jump kick him while he's still in mid-air. Then run up to him and begin to perform the same combo. Keep doing this until you have defeated Shao Kahn for good...or maybe not.
