Everything (and Everyone) Eaten in Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat

Thrillist_LogoThere's a reason Mortal Kombat has remained a household name for over two decades.

Sure, because beating the crap out of cyber-opponents in ridiculously gruesome ways is just a heck of a lot of fun.

But we also have to give Mortal Kombat its due for extending beyond the basic fight-fight-kill mentality…it taught us many valuable life lessons about the human condition.

It taught us that punching a guy in his junk is totally OK.  It taught us that a personal mantra of "finish him" is also totally OK.

And it taught us that spleen is a dish best served raw and freshly ripped from its suddenly spleen-less host.

Yes, there is a lot more eating in Mortal Kombat than you might realize — so that's why Thrillist put together a complete list of everything and everyone (eww!) eaten in the seminal series.  And there are probably a lot more instances of food-related Kombat-ery than you think.

Take a look at the complete Thrillist list here.
