Without a doubt, Mortal Kombat 11 is one of the most anticipated titles of 2019, but another title that has already taken 2019 by storm is Apex Legends. It's not an exaggeration to say that the game has exploded and is currently on track to outpace Fortnite in several milestones, with a lot of this having to do with the unique characters that it brings to the table. One of those characters is Wraith, and a fan has recreated one of her finishers to look like a Mortal Kombat fatality.
For those not in the know, Wraith is one of the most popular legends whose abilities allow players to strike quickly and move quicker. She is also the only character to currently have heirloom items and is considered one of the best legends to main. To see one of her finishers turned into a fatality is certainly fitting, as she first headbutts her opponent, then teleports behind them and elbows them in the back, and finally teleports above to stomp on their head. It certainly sounds like a fatality from Mortal Kombat, and Redditor Nestoraus has updated the animation to reflect that quality.
At each strike, it shows the damage done to the opponent and even ends with a bloody FATALITY appearing across the screen. This also caught the attention of user Respawn senior animator Moy Parra. Parra went on to comment that this is the first finisher animation he did for Apex Legends and that seeing it mixed with a fatality blew his mind.
This animated crossover of Apex Legends and Mortal Kombat, if nothing else, speaks to the creativity of the two communities as well as the popularity of the two games. Notably, each has also experienced a few character leaks, with the full roster for Mortal Kombat 11 leaking and the character Octane leaking for Apex Legends.
According to said leak, new character Octane is supposed to have a Swift Mend passive, Adrenaline Junkie tactical, and Launch Pad ultimate ability, perhaps making him another quick hitter in Apex Legends. If he proves to be as popular as Wraith, perhaps he (or even another legend) will get their own fatality one day, though we wouldn't exactly hold our breath.
Apex Legends is out now for Android, iOS, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
