Johnny Cage is often viewed as a top tier contender in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. The character has access to some deadly rushdown options backed by some impressive damage.

With multiple Krushing Blows, a Fatal Blow cancel and interactable elements from the Cyber Lin Kuei Assembly stage, it's actually possible to reach over 100% damage (against most characters) with Johnny Cage. In a recent video upload, Lamarryl Ķ demonstrates how to do this.

Similar to Joker, Johnny Cage is actually able to cancel the start up of his Fatal Blow. In combination with this unique Fatal Blow option, it's possible to link two combo strings together that normally aren't linkable.

In the video, Johnny Cage pulls off the Fatal Blow cancel towards the beginning of the combo. Near the end, the Fatal Blow cooldown will expire and be ready to finish the interaction.

Johnny Cage is able to keep the combo going for an extended period of time thanks to the sunglasses Krushing Blow and the camera Krushing Blow. The smoke and ice bombs from the Cyber Lin Kuei Assembly stage also play a role in this combo.

To get this sort of damage, the opponent will of course need to perform a badly timed combo breaker just before getting hit by the Fatal Blow. This will cause the Fatal Blow's damage to be less influenced by combo scaling.

In the video, Lamarryl Ķ performs three different variations of the combo, each more damaging than the last. Check it out in the video below:
