GameInformer has tried to explain the science behind Sub-Zero's Spine-Ripping Fatality and created a video in the process.

Science Behind Sub Zeros Spine Ripping Fatality


Host Jake Roper and the team at Vsauce3 took it upon themselves to learn just how much force is necessary to pull off the infamous final move. Turns out you need one million newtons of force (the equivalent of 10 high speed car crashes) to break the spine free of its numerous connections to muscle ligaments and other bones. To give you an idea, an average human will probably break their femur if hit with 4,000 newtons of force. That didn’t stop them from trying it on a gel dummy filled with blood, though.

So, is it possible to perform the Fatality, find out in this video:

Nice one, but even if you can't do Sub-Zero's Fatality in real life, it doesn't matter. Mortal Kombat makes it look credible, and as long as it does look legit in that universe, should we really care if it can be done in ours? I don't think so.

Don't think that anyone really cares. I find the approach of the video interesting.

Tekken are better and more real than MK in any way.
All the styles in Tekken have RL moves and not some stupid fantasy inspired Fatalities to teach kids violence. Not that in Tekken we have full reality but the fighting styles themselves not the special moves are real life MA styles. MK is a hybrid of fantasy moves and some few styles.

About the fatality itself it's a very old one and Is one of my favorites.
Especially in MKSM when you play as the BOSS NPC version of Sub Zero it's like a normal special move and you can instakill any enemy with it.
