And now, a Japanese ad for Doom 64!

Normally in the first Mortal Kombat when you get to the point where it says “FINISH HIM” on The Pit stage, uppercutting your opponent will send them into the spikes below. Sometimes however, and it seems kinda random whether or not it happens, if the killing blow happened to be an uppercut they just fall straight down, you don’t need to wait for “FINISH HIM” to show up.

If you happen to trade hits with your opponent when this happens, you retain control of your character while they’re falling into the spikes, something that is not supposed to happen. Raiden can take this opportunity to make 200% sure that his opponent is dead.
