1. Introduction                                                           [INT]

Welcome to first Retro FAQ. This FAQ should cover both Classic and normal 
version of Sub. Many including myself still play old skool games especially 
UMK as its one of the best MK games. Sure there are new 3D versions but to be 
honest nothing bets the old 2D style. Any way if you have anything to add drop 
me an email found in Legal Disclaimer section. Cheers.

2. Version History                                                        [VHS]

Version 1.0 2:01 AM January 19th, 2006
Finished the FAQ. Every move that I know is here, if you have something 
to add than drop me an email.   

3. The Basics                                                             [BSC]

The first thing you need to know is that you cant play as Classic Sub-Zero 
unless you use one of the two methods.

The short method:  

Just before the main menu screen shows up, the with UMK logo or the one 
before it, enter the following cheat code:  C, R, A, Z, Y, C, Y, R, A, X. 
If done correctly you will hear some one leafing. Press up when your in 
the main menu and you will be taken to a secret options where you have the 
ability to unlock Classic Sub-Zero along with other characters and stuff. 

The long method: 

Start a normal game against the computer and lose. Let the counter reach 
zero and it will be game over. You will immediately be taken to an “Enter 
an Ultimate Kombat Kode” screen. Here press X seven times, Y six times, A 
five times, B two times. You should get a massage “From this point on Classic 
Sub-Zero is at your control. 


Here are all default commands and there explanations:

Command            Short-Cut            Button

4. Sub-Zero Moves                                                         [SZR]

The ninja returns unmasked. He was betrayed by his own clan, the Lin Kuei, 
he broke sacred codes of honor by leaving his clan and is marked for death. 
But unlike the ninja of old, his pursuers comes as machines. He must not only 
defend himself against the Outworld menace, but he must also elude his soulless

Sub-Zero has useful attacks and special moves, lets go trough them:

Freeze                D, F, LP

Ice Clone             D, B, LP

Ice Shower            D, F, HP

Near Ice Shower       D, F, B, HP

Slide                 B+LP+BK+LK

Here are explanations and strategies on each move: 

Freeze   D, F, LP 

This move is sub’s special move, it freezes an opponent for a short time 
allowing you to perform a combo or any damaging move. This move is best used 
when your near your opponent because he can get confused but don’t try it all 
the time because your strategy will be discovered.

Another good time to use this attack is when your far away from your opponent 
and he is ether running or jumping at you, but make sure your one step behind 
from his landing point. 

You can trick your opponent by standing at a jump distains from him and wait, 
as soon as he jumps run straight, this should leave you behind him and gives 
you a perfect opportunity to use the freeze move as soon as he lands. Make 
sure to time it right or he will ether crouch it or jump on you and you wont 
be able to don anything but to take damage because your still in freeze move 

finally you can also use this move as soon as the other player throws 
something on you, like spear. Note that you may also take damage but 
its worth it because you will gave him more damage than his move, don’t 
try it when your low on health though. 

Ice Clone   D, B, LP

Ice clone can be very useful when used right. The first right timing to use 
it is when some one is jumping on you, you can play dumb and stay in one place
until your opponent jumps on you and that when Ice clone comes in. 

Another good way to use it is when some one running toward you, wait for him 
to reach 3-4 steps far from you and do it. Useful because he has to react very 

Ice Shower   D, F, HP

Ice shower is a new move to Sub-Zero that first appeared in MK 3. An way this 
move is hard to use but can be useful some times. A good time to use when your 
opponent is far or is landing from a back jump. Never use it when your close 
or in range of a jump attack as most likely your opponent will dodge your move 
and combo you. 

Some times you can also use it when some one throws something on you but its 
hard to hit in that situation and I don’t recommend it. 

Near Ice Shower   D, F, B, HP

Same as the normal Ice shower but is useful when some one is running at you. 
Your opponent can easily be tricked into thinking your using the normal one 
and he will immediately be running toward you only to be frozen. Use it wisely.

Slide   B+LP+BK+LK

Slide attack doesn’t do much damage but it can be used as a surprised attack. 
The best time to use it is when your opponent is running. It can also be used 
to dodge and attack when some one throws something at you like spear. Don’t 
use it a lot because most likely your opponent will block most of your 
attempts and combo you.


Here are all the combos that I know: 

5 Hit Combo         HP, HP, LP, LK, HK, B+HK

3 Hit Kick Combo    HK, HK, B+HK

Jump Combo          Jump punch, HP, HP, HK
Jump Combo 2        Jump Kick, B+LK
Jump Combo 3        Jump punch, HP, HP, LP, B+HK
Jump Combo 4        Jump punch, HP, HP, LP, LK, HK, B+HK

Jump Slide Combo    Jump kicking your opponent, slide

Here are some strategies on using each combo: 

The first two combos are the most damageable and are very useful. A good 
time to perform these combos is to run straight at your opponent and combo 
him. Remember to time the combo right and finish it even if your opponent 
is blocking it because if you stop he will have the perfect chance to combo 
you! You can also use an combo after you freeze you opponent. 

Another good way to use it is after the run trick, you wait for him to jump 
one you, as soon as he do run but instead of freezing him run back at him and 
combo him as soon as he lands. You can also combo him when he attempts to jump 


Fatalities are the hart of MK. When you defeat your opponent for two rounds 
you will be brought to the Finish Him scene. Your opponent will stay dizzy 
for a short time, this is the time to do your finishing move. 

in order to do your fatality you need to stay at certain position, etch one 
has it own stains. Here are the stains and there explanations: 

Close        Stand close to your opponent, don’t leave any space in between. 

Sweep        About 4-6 steps away from your opponent. 

Far          Stand far away from your opponent. 

Mercy        To perform it you will need lose one round. at the finish him 
             scene hold R, D, D, let go of R. This will Annabel your opponent 
             to fight again with one hit death health.

Fatality 2  B, B, D, B, R       (Sweep)  Blows ice on opponent that will make

                                         his opponent (Required mercy).

Stage Fatality B, D, F, F, HK            Drop the opponent to his dome.

*To perform Friendships and babalitys you should not block during 
 the wining round. 


In vicious battle, Sub-Zero faces Cyrax and Sektor: but not alone. He finds 
his third Lin Kuei Assassin - the elusive Smoke. Before automation Smoke and 
Sub-Zero were allies. Sub-Zero helps Smoke recall his past and gains him as 
an ally once again. 

Sub-Zero defeats his cyborg assassins with the help of Smoke and finds it 
takes all his own inner strengths to defeat Kahn and his Outworld Minions. 
The former ninja once again disappears into the shadows. His legacy known 
only by a select few.

5. Classic Sub-Zero Moves                                                 [CZR]

Thought to have been vanquished in the Shaolin Tournament, Sub-Zero 
mysteriously returns. It's believed this secretive member of the Lin 
Kuei, a legendary clan of Chinese "ninjas", has returned to again 
attempt an assassination of Shang Tsung. To do so, he must fight his 
way through Shao Kahn's tournament.

The Classic MK Sub-Zero returns with  a little power up. Basically his 
the same as you last seen him with new finishing moves and combos. Here 
are all the moves:

Freeze          D, F, LP

Ground Freeze   D, B, LK

Slide           B+LP+BK+LK

These move’s strategies are the same as the normal Sub-Zero, except the 
Ground freeze. Use this move when some on is jumping on you. Step back 
and throw the ice, this will leave your opponent unstable for a short 
time giving you good hits. In rare cases it can also be useful when your 
near you opponent but that’s to risky and can put you dangerous situation 
because your opponent can combo you before your ice hit the ground. 


5 Hit Combo        HP, HP, LK, B+HK, F+LK

Jump Combo         Jump Punch HP, HP, LK, B+HK, F+LK
Jump Combo 2       Jump Kick, B+LK


Fatality    D, D, D, F, HP (Close)  Grabs his opponent head, screen goes black,
                                    and your opponent screams. 

Stage Fatality F, D, F, F, HP       Drop the opponent to his dome.

*Classic Sub-Zero only has two fatalities  


Having been killed in the first tournament, Sub-Zero somehow seems to have 
emerged to win the third tournament. However, upon removing his mask both 
the Outworld and the Earth-born warriors... 

Are shocked to discover the true identity of this warrior. A warrior who has 
long been missing from a previous Mortal Kombat, and one who will return in 
the fourth tournament.
