The Krypt is where you can unlock Fatalities, Brutalities, alternate costumes, concept art, stage music and more. There are quite a few areas that encompass the Krypt and some areas will be locked until you solve a puzzle or find a specific item in the Krypt that allows access to the area.

There are also random enemy encounters that will likely startle you. These require you to press whatever input appears on-screen before the enemy hits you. If you fail to do so there aren't any negative penalties. However, if you do follow the on-screen commands in time you earn koins. You have a decent amount of time to input the command so take your time to see what button you have to press to make sure you deflect the attack and score some koins.

Throughout the Krypt you'll hear the sound of chests appearing and then vanishing again. These are timed chests that only appear for a short time before they're gone. If you want in the location of a timed chest, it will appear again. Most appear within a few minutes time.

Note: Cyber Sub-Zero is not unlocked in the Krypt. However, we've got all the details you need if you're trying to unlock Cyber Sub-Zero.
