Test Your Might
Test Your Might is mini-game featured in Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and Mortal Kombat (2011 game). The player gets to break various objects. Objects includes wood, brick, metal, ruby and diamond and various other things.
 Mortal Kombat
In the original Mortal Kombat game, a Test Your Might mini-game would pop up after every few matches. All attacks buttons must be rapidly pressed to fill up the meter. The block button is pressed to after the meter is high enough and the object would be broke at the hands of the player's character. Your character would break wood first than stone than steel (and only if you are playing a 2-player game) ruby and diamond.
 Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance
In Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Test Your Might works very much the same way it did in the original game. As with before, it would occur every few matches, although this time, the player can set after how many matches this mini-game could occur. As the levels go on, each object becomes harder to break.
 Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks
In Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, Test Your Might works differently than before. It occurs during boss fights to overpower the boss. For example, when you dodge Scorpion's spear, you can grab his spear and pull him back to you with a Test Your Might mini-game. The same can also be done when Goro grabs you and starts to do his chest pound. The Test Your might is used to escape his chest pound. You still press all the attacks buttons to build up the meter, as with before.
 Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe
In Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, some levels in the game will have breakable boundaries, and once broken the new feature is activated. The most common example of Test Your Might is one character knocking another into a brick wall. Once triggered, the attacking character will knock their opponent through the wall and keep pushing them through layer and layer of wall. A meter will appear at the top of the screen in the center, this represents the ammount of Force/Resistance is being put into the test. Both players will be required to press as many buttons as possible (or simply "Button Bash") within the time it takes to finish the test. Bashing buttons will slide the marker in the middle of the bar either left or right, depending on who is more successful in their button bashing. The attacker has to try and get the marker to move in their opposite direction, which will result in more damage (%) to their opponent, whereas the defender will be doing the same to reduce the ammount of damage dealt. Once the event is finished, the defender will be flung into the center of the stage as damage is calculated, the average damage dealt during Test Your Might is around 12 to 17 percent damage.
 Mortal Kombat (2011)
In Mortal Kombat (2011), Test Your Might returns with it's original purpose found in the original Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. This time, it can be selected as a separate mode. In that mode you can select different modes, which are unlocked after beating them in Challenge Tower. In Challenge Tower, all levels of Test Your Might occur as certain missions. in the Test Your Might mode, there is a 16 floor ladder you can climb to break 16 materials of a certin hardness. There are 4 segments for each of the 4 floors, the first segment has wooden materials, the second has rock materials, the third is metallic materials and the fourth is gem-like materials.
 Floors (MK 2011)

This is a little more harder than pine. Teak wood is usually made for antique tables. But it does not take much to break this wood.
 Floor 3:Oak

Here, you will have to break a huge log of Oak wood. Though more difficult to nreak it, but it can be broken easily by a well seasoned Kombatant.

The hardest of the wood segment. You will have to break a roll of Bamboo sticks, which is somewhat difficult to do.

On this floor, you must break through a mound of coal, harder than the head and it could take a few tries to break it.

Here you must break a Dragon statue made out of gold. More difficult than Silver and can take a few tries.
 Floor 11: Iron
