4 Better Music

This should be top. Nintendo music is consistently heavenly. Other VG music isn't even trying in my opinion. Nintendo are hands down the best composers in their medium, and some songs are more than enough to rival actual songs today in my opinion.

Mario, Kirby, and Sonic music are amazing!

What come on. MK's them song make u want to dance and I'm a metal fan admitting that. - MrQuaz680

5 More Powerful Looking

I'm gonna have to disagree with you there. You have to agree that Scorpion looks a lot more powerful than Jigglypuff. - SlimVeggie

Not Relly I mean a guy with a skull for a face is kinda more powerful than a puff ball - MrQuaz680

No doubt about it,someone from Xbox is defanetly gonna look stronger then a Nintendo character - Nateawesomeness

6 Smash Bros. is for All Ages and Mortal Kombat is only for Adults

All I'm going to say on this one is too often games that are meant for all ages are hated on too much while games with a M rating are loved too much. The only exceptions being of course Sonic and SpongeBob games because apparently no ones allowed to not absolutely worship those as if God Himself made them.

Smash bros brawl and melee are rated T.

The first mortal kombat I played was shaolin monks, and I played when I was 7 YEARS OLD! WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE CREATOR OF THIS LIST?

The rate doesn't make it better or worse - Nateawesomeness

7 More Fun

You can't argue it is awesome to kill the other Nintendo Mascots with your favorite character! Heck, you can even play as yourself!

As much as I love Smash bros, I prefer Mortal Kombat way more. - Chaotixhero

Me too I understand that the smash series is a staple when it comes to Mario but Mk is probably the best fighting game besides street fighter - MrQuaz680

Mortal kombat has more attacks - Nateawesomeness

8 No Fatalities

Did any of you insisting that fatalities are just called losing people even PLAY any MK games, at least the earlier ones? Depending on the game there are also Animalities, Babalities, and the infamous Friendships- all of which still mean somebody lost. It's also possible to win a match without using any finishing moves whatsoever but it still means the other person lost. Not to mention when it's only round 1 of a 2 out of 3 fight- then it doesn't even prompt for a finishing move of any kind but again somebody still loses here. So tell me again how fatalities are just losing.

I won't "deal with it" until you deal with fatalities being way too much blood than a human being even has and being mutilated beyond recognition, which is much more than "just a way of speech that is called losing"

"Fatalities are just called losing" people: in Smash, you can lose but WITHOUT GETTING MAIMED AND LOSING AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF BLOOD.

Fatalities are just called losing,u can lose in smash bros too - Nateawesomeness

9 Cuter Characters

If cute characters don't belong in a fighting game, look up "Sonic the Fighters" or "Sonic Championship" (same game, different names depending on the market). It's a Sonic game with several of the franchises characters, all of which could be considered cute and is in fact... A FIGHTING GAME.

Which cute characters make them look weak!,that's why mortal combat made them look badass!

Why does cuter characters mean a better game? - SlimVeggie

And you just said they look more powerful,we got a hypnocrite alert! - Nateawesomeness

10 Better Story

I have to agree with this one,but mortal combat is still better

Actually, the story is a lot more confusing and convoluted than just MKX. The story spans the entire series, not just MKX. - SlimVeggie

The Contenders

11 Final Smashes are better than Fatalities

Even the final smashes from the sword-wielding characters don't leave more blood than can ever come from one person all over the place

The fatalities may kind of be a Final mash, but they're not unique to their character. And if another character has your Final Smash in Smash, it'll only be that character. But seriously,which is cooler? Getting into a spaceship and start choosing which person on the stage you hate the most and start unleashing lasers on them or ripping a person's skull out of their head and bringing the spine with it? Okay the latter sounds cooler but you get my point! - sdgeek2003

12 Easier Controls

Mortal Kombat's controls were hard to control - quintonshark8713

13 Super Smash Bros. has a lot of awesome characters, but the only awesome character in Mortal Kombat is Reptile

This is totally wrong. Characters like: Sub zero, Raiden, Johhny cage, and scorpion are cool. - nintendofan126
