It was so difficult to pull this Mortal Kombat trick off that most players thought it was impossible. But this was not a myth. If you met a very specific set of requirements, you could face off against a green ninja at the bottom of the game's 'Pit' stage. To face Reptile, first you had to be playing on one of the later revisions of the game. Then you had to fight on the 'Pit' stage on one of those rare occasions when a shadowy item is flying in front of the moon. This didn't happen a lot, but when it did, you needed to beat your opponent without getting hit and without blocking. If you can do all this you'd get to face Reptile. Reptile moves much faster than the regular characters, and he has both Scorpion and Sub-Zero's moves. If you manage to defeat him, you get yourself 10,000,000 points. Lose and you might end up getting Scorpion or Sub-Zero's fatality performed on you. Players went crazy trying to figure out a formula for making the shadow appear in front of the moon, but it's really just random. Later versions of the arcade game had Reptile popping up before the start of random matches, as well as giving clues to his whereabouts.Edit

If you still doubt reptile being in the first Mortal Kombat please watch this video.
