Mortal Kombat 1: Will It Have Friendship Feature?

Check out the detailed guide on Friendship finishing move in Mortal Kombat 1 and if it will be a part of the game. 

Friendship is a finishing move, and many players are wondering if it will be a part of Mortal Kombat 1 or not. One of the finishing moves first introduced in Mortal Kombat 2 and a counterpart to the Fatality finishing move, Friendship, allows players to perform an act of kindness towards the opponent instead of killing them. You will have to use a special button sequence and finish the round with a high or low kick to perform a friendship finishing move. 

Key Takeaways
  • Friendship is a finishing move that might be a part of Mortal Kombat 1. 
  • Friendship is a counterpart of Fatality, and the character will perform an act of goodwill or kindness towards the end of the match. 
  • The Friendship feature might be introduced as a part of a patch update later but is not available to use in Mortal Kombat 1 as of initial release. 

Does Mortal Kombat 1 Have Friendship 

So far, Mortal Kombat 1 does not offer Friendship as a finishing move; however, it might get added in the near future. You won’t be able to find the MK1 friendship move in the main menu, and there is no news of them getting added so far.

Even if you execute the perfect move and button combination to achieve Friendship, you still won’t be able to activate it.

  • However, it might get added as a finishing move in the near future as a part of patch updates.
  • This is because the nether realm studio has added friendships in Mortal Kombat 11 and fatalities in Mortal Kombat X after their release.
  • There are also high chances of a new kind of finishing move being added to the end game, one similar to Friendship. 
  • Before the official launch, the Co-creator Ed Boon expressed that they wanted to cover finishing moves that they have not done recently in San Diego Comic-Con 2023, covered by Screen Rant Plus.
  • So it’s most likely that Babalities and Animalities will make a comeback, but I can’t say the same for Friendships since they were just recently in Mortal Kombat 11. 

What Is MK Friendship 

Introduced in Mortal Kombat 11, Friendship is a finishing move that is a counterpart of Fatality. In case a friendship move is added in MK1, you will be able to execute a specific button sequence and activate it.

In the friendship finishing move, the character will perform an act of kindness instead of ripping their opponent apart. The move includes ice skating, painting pictures, giving a birthday present, bubbles, making food, or doing a special dance. 

  • It is important to end the round in either a low kick or a high kick only if you want the MK1 friendship finishing move to activate. 
  • One of the famous friendship finishing moves is Johnny Cage.
  • He will give you a signed autograph or do a vaudeville dance.
  • Another Mortal Kombat 1 friendship move includes Mileena spinning around and cuddling a teddy bear and then having a tea party with two teddy bears dressed up as Jade and Kitana.
