Mortal Kombat 3 is the third installment of the Mortal Kombat series. It features several new elements, such as multi-level playfields as well as a "run" button to speed the battles up.
This run is a 5.39 second improvement on the previous run by the same author. KusogeMan here plays as Shang Tsung instead of Sheeva and saves time by using faster strategies against Motaro and Shao Kahn. For more details, read the author's comments.

Note: The lack of sound is intentional as disabling it shortens the loading and victory screens.
Here on TASVideos we have a rich history of movies of the games in the Mortal Kombat series, demonstrating the unique combos and glitches possible in each version. This video of MK3 for the SNES is no exception, as the author Dark Noob swaps between all the different characters to show off the wide variety of techniques, secrets, and humorous bugs that are possible.
Though he is technically the villain, you have to admire Shao Kahn's dedication to keeping up with the action in his role as announcer as the fights get more and more bizarre. At times even he seems confused as to what is going on.
The baseline tab shows the default movie beating the game as fast as possible without any special conditions.
