Mortal Kombat 1 features an invasion mode, allowing you to progress by defeating enemies and solving invasion clues. Solving these clues will reward you with cosmetics and other rewards. So, to continue your journey, you must know how to solve these clues.
Table of Contents
There are a total of 12 ‘Invasion Clues’ that spread across six worlds. Some are easier to solve than others.
Solving these clues is mandatory if you want to progress in invasion mode.
Many of the clues are anagrams, whereas some are written backward.
In addition, some hints require you to do fatalities with unlockable characters, such as Havik and Shang Tsung.
‘Klues’ with a K and are like small puzzles that need a bit of brain to solve. You can’t ignore them because they are essential to move to the next space in Invasion mode.
ESDORYT TEH DWLOR
You must solve This first invasion clue in Mortal Kombat 1. This is an anagram that deciphers to “Destroy the World.” You will be facing Geras, and you will have to choose Cryax as Kameo.
During the fight with Geras, you must use Cryax’s Fatality to finish him off.
Press the Back, Forward, and Kameo buttons.
This will initiate his Fatality, ending with him “destroying” the world.
Sun Do Festival
Another anagram that is deciphered to be “Talisman 4”. This Klue will be encountered towards the end of the festival stage, and it is a fight against Reiko.
To solve this, you must equip a Talisman with at least four gem slots.
You must use that talisman at least four times in the same fight.
The first Klue, which isn’t an anagram, will be encountered midway in the stage.
To solve this, you must equip Scorpion as your Kameo and jump into the fight against Havik.
After that, you must perform Scorpion’s Fatality at the end of the fight.
This will lead to him removing his mask to reveal a skull and burning the enemy into bits. Press the Down, Forward, Down, and Kameo Button to initiate the Fatality.
Another anagram, which is deciphered to be “Threaded”. Threaded is the name of Ashrah’s second Fatality.
This invasion clue in Mortal Kombat 1 is located midway through the stage.
This is a fight against Baraka, in which you must defeat him using Ashrah.
You must perform her secondFatality, which may not be unlocked. You can still complete it, but the button combination won’t be shown.
To activate Ashrah’s second Fatality, press Down, Down, Back, Back Kick.
This is a rather annoying Klue to solve. The term ‘flipping out’ means you must flip around during the fight, meaning you’ll have to change your stance 25-30
You can simply press the L2 or LT button or U on the keyboard to change your stance.
While the “Finish Her” title appears, you can also spam the stance button.
Shang Tsung’s Laboratory
ANOTHER TEST SUBJECT
This invasion clue can only be solved if you pre-ordered Mortal Kombat 1. It’s disappointing for other players because you must use Shang Tsung as your main character for this.
In this fight against Kitana, you must perform Shang Tsung’s second Fatality, which will probably be locked.
You can still perform the Fatality by pressing Forward, Down, Back, Back Punch.
On the first floor of the lab, you will encounter a node called “Chomp Chomp Hiss.”
In this Klue, you will have to fight against Reptile. Moreover, you must defeat the Reptile by using Brutality.
This anagram is deciphered to be “Create Chaos.” The ERTECA AOSCH Klue may take longer if you haven’t completed story mode.
You need Havik unlocked after 100% story mode completion in this battle.
You must perform Havik’s first Fatality on Raiden by pressing Down, Forward, Down, and Back Kick. You need to be in close range for this Fatality.
The node is called “Still learning,” where you will face Liu Kang. The clue means to quack like a duckten. However, the word to focus on is duck.
You will have to duck ten times in battle.
Whatever character you choose, duck ten times during the battle. An important tip is to spam the duck button while the ‘Finish Him” prompt is on screen.
This clue is deciphered as “Inner Demon,” spelled in reverse. This is an easy clue because it is the name of the Fatality of Sareena.
In this fight against Geras, you must choose Sareena as the Kameo fighter.
Press Back, Down, Back, Kameo Button when the finish him prompt comes.
This clue is deciphered to be spelled reverse as “Hat Trick.”
In this fight against Nitara, you will choose a character with the best hat, Kung Lao. However, you will need to equip him as a Kameo.
Defeat Nitara using Kung Lao’s Fatality by pressing the Forward, Back, Forward, and Kameo buttons. This will initiate the Fatality and later break the barrier.
USE THE ELEMENT THAT BRINGS LIFE
This is a rather easy-to-solve invasion clue in Mortal Kombat 1. It is a fight against Li Mei and refers to defeating him with Rain.
The element that is being referred to is water.
You must finish Li Mei using ‘The Red Sea’ Fatality of Rain.
Simply press Down, Down, Back, Back Kick to initiate the Fatality.
Personally, I believe that the reason Mortal Kombat 1 is fresh and exciting as compared to other Mortal Kombat games is because of the new Invasion mode. I really appreciate the puzzle-solving element added to this type of game. Luckily, it isn’t that difficult to solve, so you won’t be stuck at it for long!
Those are all the Invasion clues in Mortal Kombat 1. Check out more articles on Mortal Kombat on our website:
I’ve been gaming since I got my PlayStation 2 back in 2008, playing all types of games from WWE, all to way to Naruto, you name it. When I’m not gaming, I’m either focusing on my Electrical Engineering degree or playing football. I absolutely LOVE multiplayer games; carrying my team is pretty fun 😉
