Kombat Kodes are special code combination inputs first introduced in Mortal Kombat 3 and discontinued after Mortal Kombat Gold, returning in Mortal Kombat (2011). These codes have to be entered at the Versus screen within a limited amount of time before the match starts. They come in the form of six digit codes with ten unique symbols each representing a numerical value, and the kodes require three inputs from each player. If a kode is entered successfully, a message will be displayed at the beginning of the round to notify the effect. Kombat Kodes have varying effects, primarily in gameplay, which range from health handicaps to secret character battles amongst many.

  • The jingle played in the Versus screen in Mortal Kombat 3 and later versions is actually a remix of the finisher theme in MKII while Mortal Kombat 4's is a remix of 3.
  • The prequel animated feature to the first movie The Journey Begins, teased a Kombat Kode which was later seen post-credits that viewers could use for MK3 which uses Question Mark (4), and four Shokan (6) succeeding it. However, the combination does not exist in revision or home port of the game as it uses an unknown symbol for the fourth digit which may either be a number 11 (even though the numbers only go from 0 to 9) or the Roman numeral for 2. The only code closest to this is Unlimited Run (466-466).
