Killer Instinct Cheats For SNES

Knock Opponents Off Building

You have the ability to knock your opponent off any rooftop level. At the end of the second round when the screen turns red, hit them with any special attack that usually sends the opponent flying. It's easier done if you position the opponent towards the edge of the building when their health is starting to get low on the second round, this way they can be knocked off with little effort.

Alternate Costumes

On the character select screen, press Up or Down to select a different costume color for your character.

Hidden Stage - Air Box

To go to the hidden stage, after selecting your character, hold Down + B on controller 1 and controller 2.

Easy Combo Breakers

To enable easy combo breakers, during the vs. screen, press Down + Start. If done correctly, you'll hear the sound effect that says "Combo Breaker".

Select Random Character

To select a random character, on the character select screen, press Up + Start. After doing this a random character will be selected for you.

Play As Eyedol

Select Cinder and on the VS screen, hold Right, and press L, R, X, B, Y, A. This can be done on all modes besides the practice mode. If done correctly, you will hear a sound effect confirming that it worked.
