Besides the all Mortal Kombat 1 fatalities list, the Move List reveals Secret Fatalities once a fighter attains Rank 14.

Each player has a pair of Fatality moves: the primary one and a hidden secondary one awaiting activation. Victories in battles award your lead character with XP, and with each Rank advancement, there’s a bonus. The secondary Fatality is consistently revealed at Rank 14 for every player. 

Important: Interestingly, even without unlocking them, Secret Fatalities are accessible from the beginning, provided you’re familiar with the correct control sequence.
