What is a Quitality in Mortal Kombat 1? Explained

When it comes to ending a Mortal Kombat 1 match, there are plenty of gory ways, but players may be curious about how to perform a Quitality. Here’s a comprehensive guide on what a Quitality is and how to execute it in Mortal Kombat 1.

Mortal Kombat 1 serves as a reboot of the beloved fighting game franchise while retaining many of the elements that made the series popular. This means that iconic fighters such as Scorpion and Sub-Zero, as well as the iconic Fatalities, are still part of MK1.

One returning feature from previous games is the Quitality finisher, but new players may be wondering what exactly it entails and how to perform it before they jump into the beta in August.

Here is everything you need to know about the Quitality in Mortal Kombat 1.

How to perform a Quitality in Mortal Kombat 1

Simply put, a Quitality occurs when an opponent quits in the middle of a Mortal Kombat 1 match. If your opponent decides to ragequit or gets disconnected before the fight concludes, a Quitality will be triggered.

Similar to the iconic Fatality or Brutality finishers, when a player leaves, the lights will dim and a brutal move will be executed. However, the distinguishing factor is that in a Quitality, the losing character performs the move on themselves, followed by confirmation from the announcer and a graphic indicating the end of the fight.

There are two different variations of Quitalities in Mortal Kombat 1, as listed below:

  • The fighter snaps their own neck.
  • The opponent instantly explodes.

Quitalities are just one type of finisher in Mortal Kombat 1.

Unlike other gruesome takedowns in Mortal Kombat 1, performing a Quitality does not require specific inputs. Instead, players must wait for their opponents to leave the match early to witness the bloody yet humorous conclusion.

Unfortunately, this means that Quitalities can only occur in online matches in Mortal Kombat 1, and there is no way to perform them in single-player games against the CPU.

That covers everything you need to know about earning a Quitality in Mortal Kombat 1. For more on fighting games, be sure to check out our guides for Street Fighter 6:
