Cassie Cage can pop an opponent's testicles with a Crushing Blow in Mortal Kombat 11

What was once part of her X-Ray attack in Mortal Kombat X is now an amplified special move

As we see more of the Cage family in Mortal Kombat 11, new details and glimpses of their personalities continue to be revealed. The latest humorous character trait? Apparently, Cassie Cage can crush her opponent's testicles with an amplified special move.

In a recent video from Brian Tong showcasing second Fatalities for several of the game's fighters, we were also treated to some new gameplay footage of Cassie Cage. Providing a look at several of her attacks, we see that the amplified version of her Nut Punch can trigger a Crushing Blow.

Doing so sees the animation launch into the X-Ray-style close up —as all Crushing Blows do in Mortal Kombat 11 — and as you might imagine, a more devastating version of a low blow results in the opponent's testicles actually popping.

Those who played Mortal Kombat X know that this isn't the first time Cassie acts as a ball buster, as a similar animation was originally part of her X-Ray. It's funny to see that NetherRealm Studios brought it back in a different way in Mortal Kombat 11, though I do wonder what happens when Cassie hits a female character with this Crushing Blow — I imagine it'll be similar to what we saw back in MKX.

From Johnny Cage's love for flipping the bird to Cassie's casual "'sup?" when she enters a battle, the fighters from the Cage family are shaping up to be some of the most expressive and entertaining characters in Mortal Kombat 11. Johnny still has a second Fatality to be revealed, and there's more to both characters that we haven't seen yet, so we can't wait to see what other little bits of flare father and daughter have come launch.

Mortal Kombat 11 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 23rd.
