How to Defeat DARK RAIDEN in Mortal Kombat 1 Invasions (MK1)

Mortal Kombat 1 is back with an amazing new Season and this time they are finally giving us what we all wanted. Dark Raiden is the main boss for the Invasions mode and users could not have been more excited. I am a huge fan of Dark Raiden with the Red Lightning and it seems like that is what we are going to unlock once we beat the Final Boss.

The fight is going to be tough no doubt so we are here to help. Keep reading to find out how you can easily beat Dark Raiden in Mortal Kombat 1 (MK1) Invasions mode.

This is How you Can Beat DARK RAIDEN Easily in Mortal Kombat 1 Invasions (MK1)

I am not a huge fan of the Invasions mode but I did grind because of this cool-looking Raiden Skin. Here is what you need to do against Dark Raiden.

Firstly, make sure you have the most points for health and you will drain health quickly during the survival events. So make sure your character has high health points, followed by Attack and Specials. This is to make sure your attacks do maximum damage against Raiden.

The only concerning part of the Boss Fight is the survival which we will get to in just a while. But before that, you need to be aware of the fact that Raiden would most likely armor through most of your moves. Having a high attack rating and spamming Uppercuts could be the best way to damage him.

I would prefer to use a character that can teleport like Ermac and Teleport behind him whenever he is charging up for a lightning attack on me. There is no shortcut to this, you have to be aware of what he is doing and whenever you get a chance, jump over him and uppercut him from behind. This can be done only when Raiden is locked up in an animation.

How to do the Dark Raiden Survival Rounds:

The first survival round starts in the second round where Raiden disappears leaving you alone at the tea house. You will have to dodge a series of Lightning attacks but the only challenge is that you have no idea where it might strike. Understanding the pattern is also difficult as they just strike like real lightning. Also, if you let them hit, you will lose a lot of health so be careful.

The best way to survive this round is to sit and block in a corner. Take the chip damage. I told you before, you will need a lot of health for this boss fight. So just crouch and block throughout the round.

The second survival starts from round 4 where you see Raiden summon an armor on himself and start blasting everything in sight with Blue Lightning. If you get hit you will lose a chunk of your health. So all you have to do is sit a full screen blocking taking the chip damage. Keep blocking until it ends and finish off Dark Raiden after that.

There you go, that is all you need to know about defeating Dark Raiden in Mortal Kombat 1 ( MK1) Invasions.
