The Auto Destruct sequence activated by Cyrax on Sonya Blade

Mortal Kombat 3 - Cyrax Fatality 1

The Auto Destruct is a self-destruct sequence that is both a special move and a deadly cybernetic weapon that was introduced in Mortal Kombat 3.

This was a feature given to Cyrax when he was automated by the Lin Kuei. A panel on his forearm allowed him to execute the command and, after a few seconds, he would explode. However, Cyrax was able to re-assemble himself afterwards. He would eventually perfect this ability, and use it to teleport himself during battle, exploding and quickly re-assembling behind his opponent.

Occasionally, he would activate his full destruct command to cause a much larger explosion, resulting in his opponents being blown apart, as well.

In other media

  • In the film Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, after Cyrax was defeated by Sonya, his self destruction sequence was activated and blew up the facility where Jax received the Cybernetic upgrade.

Sub-Zero's Kold Fusion

  • In Sektor's Mortal Kombat 3 non-canonical ending, he uses the self destruct sequence. The resulting explosion is so massive that it closes the portal between Outworld and Earthrealm.
  • This move was used as Smoke's Hara-Kiri in Mortal Kombat: Deception.
  • In Mortal Kombat (2011), Cyber Sub-Zero uses Kold Fusion, a variation of Auto Destruct Fatality. After executing the command from the panel on his forearm, Sub-Zero freezes himself with the opponents before exploding.
