Fighting as Sub - Zero

If you decide that Sub-Zero is your man, you must master the technique of his Sub Xerox. If you jump over your opponent and activate his Sub Xerox, your opponent might walk or jump into it leaving you to do whatever damage you find suitable.

If your opponent throws a projectile, throw yours too. This will allow you to inflict major damage against him/her while only losing a small percentage of your life meter. You can also Slide under most projectiles.

Fighting Against Sub - Zero

Avoid Sub-Zero's Freeze by countering with a jump kick or a teleport uppercut (if you are Smoke or Sektor). Also beware of his Sub Xerox.

Sub - Zero's Weaknesses

Sub-Zero's only weaknesses are the lag time after one of his projectiles or his Slide. If anticipated, they can be easily countered. Other than that, Sub-Zero is virtually flawless.


Sub-Zero finds himself hunted not only by the two cyber-ninjas, but a third, his old ally Smoke, who also has been automated. Sub-Zero defeats Kahn, and he destroys the cyber-ninjas except for the third. Smoke was a friend of Sub-Zero in his Lin Kuei days, so Sub-Zero helps him discover his true identity. After Smoke rediscovered himself, Sub-Zero gives Smoke his soul back and returns him to human form. Sub-Zero then returns to the shadows, his legacy known by a select few.
