CageJohnny Cage's Friendship
Kuro SelasAdded by Kuro Selas

A *Friendship* is a finishing move introduced in /Mortal Kombat II/ in
response to the public controversy surrounding the Fatality in the original
/Mortal Kombat/. Friendships allowed players to perform various (and highly
unlikely) acts of kindness and goodwill towards their helpless opponent
instead of killing them after winning the match. This included giving a
birthday present, blowing bubbles and doing a funny dance. To perform a
Friendship, when the opponent is defeated, the player must perform a
special button combination for their character and have won that round
using only High or Low Kick. In /Mortal Kombat 3/ and its updates,
/Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3/ and /Mortal Kombat Trilogy/, the player had

A *Fatality* is a gameplay feature in the /Mortal Kombat/ series of
fighting games. It is a finishing move that can be used against one's
defeated opponent at the end of the final match, after the announcer says
"Finish Him/Her." The Fatalities are usually lethal, featuring a brutal and
morbid execution of the defenseless enemy character; however, some of them
are actually non-violent and humorous, and some even result in the suicidal
death of the losing character.

While creating /Mortal Kombat/, Ed Boon and John Tobias started with the
idea of /Street Fighter II/-like system and retained many of its
conventions but tweaked others. The most notable additions were graphic
blood effects, more brutal fighting techniques, and especially the fatal
finishing moves (this was a novelty as the traditional fighting games ended
with the loser simply knocked unconscious and the victor posing for the
players).^[2] According to Boon, it started with an idea to enable the
player to
