Work in progress. More Mortal Kombat related memes to come.
Mortal Kombat is a franchise of fighting games in which the player must defeat the opponent within a certain time limit. There are over 25 playable characters in the latest installment of the series, Mortal Kombat (2011), such as Sub-Zero, Kitana, Raiden, and Scorpion. There are also 5 DLC characters including Kratos from the God of War series and Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street movie franchise.
Mortal Kombat has spawned many memes, such as; Finish Him!, Fatality, Get Over Here, and Toasty!
Scorpion’s, “Get Over Here!” and “Come Here!”, spear taunts, in all of the Mortal Kombat games and movies, were voiced by Ed Boon himself. Unfortunately, when the earlier titles were ported from the arcade to the home consoles, only one of these two taunts were featured in the games due to memory constraints. They are some of the most easily recognizable catchphrases in video gaming history.
“Toasty!” is the name of one of Scorpion’s famed Fatalities. In Mortal Kombat II, a specialized Toasty Fatality can make Dan Forden say “Toasty!” after the Fatality with a text appearing that reads “Toasty!”
“Toasty!” first entered internet culture in 2011 by the website Toasty.it, in which visitors may pay homage to their favorite website in true Mortal Kombat II style. Simply by entering in the URL of the desired website, Dan Forden will grace the bottom corner of the chosen website singing that everlasting tune. This timely Easter egg has an Easter egg of its own, in which clicking on Dan Forden’s image, Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy” will start playing, with randomized MK characters breaking out in a flash dance. Reloading the page and clicking on Dan Forden’s image will release a new MK character.
“Toasty!” is an Easter egg that was first featured in Mortal Kombat II. It originated as an inside joke between the members of the Mortal Kombat development team, and made its way into the game via an image of sound designer Dan Forden appearing in the lower-right corner of the screen, and saying “Toasty!”, when the player performed a particularly vicious uppercut. It’s also been stated by one of the first Mortal Kombat staff members that “Toasty!” began as “You’re Toasted!” and just evolved from there.
