The Slaughterhouse was present in the first plane of the Netherrealm. The hazy city was surrounded by fog and an unseen evil lurked within the shroud of the building. A constant feed of human and animals are seen being subjected to the grinders which keep the river of blood flowing through this dark complex.
Like most arenas in Deception, the Slaughterhouse is multi-tiered and the floor begins to give way as kombatants are slammed against it, and the floor eventually collapses. The stage possesses what could be considered one of the most vicious Stage Fatalities in the series: a pair of segmented revolving cylinders parallel to each other. Each segment has spikes laden on them and those unlucky enough to get knocked in between will be shredded to pieces where their blood is sprayed against the wall on the other side.
