There are 5 kind of finishing moves.
Fatalities can be performed by combinations(e.g. Behind, block, front, kick). Each character have two fatalities without weapon and one with it.
Brutalities are harder than fatalities, as they need longer combinations(e.g. Block, block, behind, front, jump, punch).
Animalities are even harder than brutalities, with even longer combinations(e.g. Behind, front, block, jump, behind, front, kick). The user always transforms into an animal bedore killing the opponent. It is the same with and without weapon.
Mercies are harder than fatalities, but easier than brutalities(e.g. Front, behind, front, behind, punch). Different than most finishing moves, it doesn't kill the opponent. It can't be performed with weapon.
Stage fatalities are made with different combination in each stage. They are easy as basic fatalities.
If you take too much time, the opponent simply falls on the ground.
