MK1: Cyrax Fatality [Button Prompts & Lore]

Cyrax is a Lin Kuei cyborg fighter that makes use of his robotic might to obliterate his enemies into dust in MK1

One of the most chaotic and, quite possibly, the most destructive fatality in Mortal Kombat 1 belongs to Cyrax. He is infamously known for his appearance of gold since the older of Mortal Kombat. The Cyrax Fatality MK1 is a more modern and grander version of his galactic approach to make sure his opponents are dead.

  • Cyrax is a cyborg fighter and is part of the Lin Kuei in MK1.
  • He has been reintroduced as a Kameo fighter in Mortal Kombat 1.
  • Cyrax Fatality MK1 Input is a 4-button combination with the “Kameo” and movements key.
  • His available fatality is his iconic “Annihilation” fatality.

  • Among all Mortal Kombat 1 characters, Cyrax’s fatality is definitely the most destructive.

The Cyrax Fatality is a grand and galactic cinematic finale of a fight when a player enters the correct input command on time when the screen prompts the classic text “Finish Him/ Her.”

Ever since Cyrax came out, his fatality has been famous for being one of the most destructive finales of a fight in Mortal Kombat. This reputation is well deserved, considering his fatality’s cinematic. It follows him turning into multiple bombs that blow up with so much energy that the entire earth explodes. Additionally, the only notable change his fatality has seen over the years is improved graphics and audio to upgrade its quality.

Some more features of Cyrax’s fatality are listed below:

  • Cyrax fatality is also referred to as “Annihilation.”
  • You have to unlock and use Cyrax as a Kameo fighter to witness his fatality.
  • The player must have their active fighter at least at a jump space apart from the opponent to trigger Annihilation.
  • Annihilation first came out in Mortal Kombat Gold in 1999.

Finally, with the fatality description out of the way, the only thing left to discuss is the Cyrax Fatality MK1 input command which you need to enter to execute this fatality. However, you need to ensure that you are at a mid-range distance from your opponent once the screen prompts “Finish Him/Her” for the finale.

Important: Map your “Kameo” key to a convenient button for the Fatality input command.

Annihilation Fatality Command Input: Forward >> Back >> Forward >> Kameo

The “Kameo” key is the key you have set for your Kameo character to come and assist you in battle.

That concludes my guide on the Cyrax MK1 fatality. If you love grand finales, no one does it better than Cyrax. Although, while you are still here, consider checking out the Scorpions Second Fatality guide. However, if that’s not your style, you can always learn more about the Mortal Kombat 1 Voice Actors.
