Ermac in MK I?
03/10/2003 03:46 PM EST
Has anyone ever heard of a macros error that caused a red ninja to show up like reptile does on MK I? A buddy of mine said it said "ERMAC" and that it meant error macros. I don't know if hes full of it or not but I think it would be cool to see... I'm not saying that I myself have seen it or that that it exists or that it doesnt exist I just thought maybe someone might know something about it.

Yeah, it's true. Ermac wasn't actually a character, it was just some weird glitch that occured in the arcade from time to time. Kids saw this red ninja and this word ERMAC and figured, hey, new secret character! I never saw it happen in person, but I've seen photos of it.

Ermac could happen. It was when the error macro ran. I forget the tech doc I read on it for this game but I think its when some error gets past all the rest of the error handling in the code. However, its such an amazingly rare occurrence that I doubt even the game programers could easily reproduce the circumstances.

I've seen a lot of pictures of the red ninja with ermac written on the screen but I honestly doubt all of their credibility. I believe it can happen though mainly because its not the only game where you can cause the error macro to happen and in many games it is referred to as ermac. It isn't too uncommon.

I'm Ermac, I play joke, I go pee pee in your coke.
That's not all, I do more,
I go pee pee in the store.
think that's it? think that's all?
I go pee pee in the mall.
wait hold on, I know lots,
I go pee pee in a box.
please please wait, just one more,
I go pee pee on the door.
I'm just a, color swap,
of scorpian and rain and lots.
I'm so dumb, I'm so cheap,
artists sometimes make me weep.
I'm the same, just some red,
very interesting thread.
yes it's true, I'm in MK1,
they put me in just for the fun.
I have no life, no meaning,
just a 2d suit with red coloring.
look at me, I'm a dork,
my weapon looks like a fork.
I'm just a red misfit,
to kill me it takes just 1 hit.
THE END!

Isn't it weird that even after 10 years people are still asking about Ermac and other rumors...LOOK everything up on a gaming website.

Guys I found this on a MK:Trilogy FAQ on GameFAQs.Pay special attention to the ending section.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
ERMAC
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

------------
| STORYLINES |
------------
Opening Storyline:
An enigma to all who come into contact with him. Ermac's past remains s
hrouded in mystery. It's believed that he exists as a life force brought togeth
er by the souls of extinguished Outworld warriors. Shao Kahn has managed to tak
e possession of these souls and use them to fight on the side of tyranny.

Ending:
Having been in hiding since the first Mortal Kombat tournament, neither
the Earth nor the Outworld recognized this elusive ninja. Ermac uses his victo
ry in the tournament to prove his existance as well as a warning that he will r
eturn as an unstopable force in the fourth Mortal Kombat.

So...any conclusions?Oh by the way,the URL to the FAQ is

http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/psx/file/mortal_kombat_trilogy_e.txt

Tell me what you think of this...I mean c'mon,Ermac in MK4?Jeez,I'll play through Ermac in Trilogy and see for myself...Laterz people.

I always hoped Ermac would have been a secret boss in MK4. Alas, it was not to be -_-
