3. How to Unlock the Reptile Secret Battle
While playing on the stage known as “The Pit 2 (Night)”, keep your eye on the moon. If a shadowy figure flies across the Moon, then you must beat both rounds against your opponent without getting hit a single time. If your energy bar is completely full at the end of both rounds, you’ll earn a “Double Flawless” victory. You’ll need to finish this awesome feat off by performing a Fatality against your opponent. Do so and you’ll be taken to a Secret Battle against the Green Ninja known as “Reptile”. Reptile was the first ever “Secret Character” and appeared as a Secret Battle in Mortal Kombat 1, where you could fit him at the bottom of the Pit stage! So this is a very cool homage to that secret for MK fans.
Here is the Reptile Secret Battle on video.
4. How to Unlock the Smoke Secret Battle
In a definite homage to Mortal Kombat 2, you can fight against Robo Smoke by keeping an eye on the trees in the background of “The Living Forest” stage. Fans of Mortal Kombat 2 will remember that Jade and Smoke would peek out from behind the trees, suggesting a secret pertaining to them. Which proved to be true as you could fight against both characters. In MKII a shadow also would fly across the Moon at this stage, some people think it was Noob Saibot in shadow form, thus hinting at all three hidden characters in one stage for those with keen eyes. Thankfully these secrets have been integrated into the Living Forest Stage. As mentioned above, wait for Cyber Smoke to appear in the background and peek out from one of the trees. If he does, at that moment, press Down+Back repeatedly. If done successfully, you will fight against the Cybernetic Robot in a Secret Battle! This is the only time you get to see Smoke in his robot form, as he is unplayable in the game! Hopefully he will be released as DLC.
