It’s without question that the Mortal Kombat series for the SNES and SEGA GENSIS consoles were among the best video games of the 90s, PERIOD!  Its game-play, gore, and move-set were top notch for the era. It was also one of the best video games for “unlockables”: characters, finishers, friendships, mini games and general randomness.

In MK2 if you caught an opponent with the perfect uppercut you would get to see the “TOASTY” guy. As a kid I always thought he was saying “oopsy”, but that still didn’t stop me from uppercutting Player 2 to hell.

I always assumed that he was one of the creators of the game, but never knew for sure. Here’s a neat little video that tells the tail of “TOASTY” and how it came to be.
