Mortal Kombat 9 move listings complete here on EventHubs

Mortal Kombat 9 move listings complete here on EventHubs We here at EventHubs have been hard at work generating the Mortal Kombat 9 move listings for each playable character on the roster.

Featured below you will find all 32 character move listings complete with Kombo Attacks, Tag Kombos, Fatalities and more. Kratos and the four DLC characters: Skarlet, Freddy Krueger, Rain and Kenshi are also included.

To make things a bit more concise, we have created icons for the Tag (Tag button), Flip Stance (F button) and Block (B button) inputs.

Please note that when Mortal Kombat 9 was originally released, our site was strictly covering Capcom games. Once we made the transition over to other fighters, there were far too many new releases and our time went into each of those. We have wanted to generate the Mortal Kombat 9 move listings for a while now and have just recently had the opportunity to do so.

In case you missed them, be sure to check out our Dead or Alive 5 move listings that were completed a couple of weeks back.

Please feel free to leave comments, concerns or general feedback in the comment section below or in any of the character guides. We hope you all enjoy these move listings and find them useful.

All Mortal Kombat 9 Toasty Boost inputs found for entire cast, gives a full free meter

Months ago, Tony-T sent an image to the guys over at Test Your Might that showed something called a "Toasty Boost" in Mortal Kombat 9. Before the image surfaced, this boost was merely a myth.

Since then, the specifics of how the Toasty Boost works have been discovered. Whenever the random appearance of Dan Forden occurs, (the guy who says "Toasty!"), both players have the opportunity to perform a unique set of inputs that will reward the player with a full bar of meter and X-Ray.

Both players can take advantage of this trick, regardless of who triggers the Toasty. The first player to perform their Toasty Boost inputs will be given the full meter.

Below, you can check out some of the Toasty Boost character specific inputs.

• Baraka -- U,U,D,3

Reo: Kabal is a character that has no known weakness, he has an advantage in every match-up

Reo: Kabal is a character that has no known weakness, he has an advantage in every match-up KN|Reo who recently took first place in the Mortal Kombat 9 tournament held at the Major League Gaming Fall Championship, did a short interview with Complex.

Some important subjects are covered here including who is the hardest character for him to beat, differences between playing at home than during a tournament, how things have changed since there is more attention to Mortal Kombat and more.

Which character would you say is the toughest to beat in a competition and why?

Kabal, bar none. No other character comes close. Kabal is a character that has no known weakness. He has an advantage in every match-up. There is not one single losing match-up Kabal has to face which is why he is in a league of his own and the toughest character to beat.

What would you say are the differences between training at home and playing at the tournament? What's your comfort level like?

At home I feel I get to enjoy the game more and play around with my favorites. In tournament, everything changes. I feel like I'm forced to do what it takes to win. Ultimately, I love playing the game as much as I can. In a tournament setting, for me to play as much as I would like, I need to win so I can play more matches. This is another reason why I use the best character in the game.
