the following.       
Go to the area in the Foundry where the Demon Archers burst out of the walls.
There should be a breakable wall on the left. Throw an enemy into the breakable 
wall. There is a platform that is high up. Throw an enemy in the lava. Make sure he 
is near the rock. Wall run and Wall jump. On the Wall jump, try to go towards the 
platform. Get the koin to unlock Scorpion for VS mode. It is frustrating but you 
will get it...... someday.

the cheat code listed at the end, but if you want to REALLY unlock Sub-Zero, read 
the following.

to the one on the left. Wall run sideways to get on top of the lion. Get the koin 
to unlock Sub-Zero for VS mode.

2. Unlockable Characters for Single and Ko-op player mode

Liu Kang and Kung Lao aren't the only characters that can be used in story mode. 
Scorpion and Sub-Zero also have a bone to pick with Shang Tsung.

Scorpion- Either use the cheat code to unlock Scorpion for story mode or beat the 
game as Liu Kang.

Sub-Zero- Either use the Cheat code to unlock Sub-Zero for story mode or beat the 
game with Kung Lao

NOTE: If you play as Scorpion,Sub-Zero, or both you will always be treated as Liu 
Kang and Kung Lao. If you play Single Player mode, you will be treated as Liu Kang.
In the Boss fatality, you will have the voice of Kung Lao.
