The Pit III is the third "brother" of the Pit I and Pit II. The Pit III only appears in Mortal Kombat 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, and Mortal Kombat Trilogy; it is the final arena when the player has to confront and fight Shao Kahn. The stage consists of a rather narrow bridge with small spike protruding from its sides. In the background are soul cages containing the captured souls of Earthrealm when Shao Kahn's invasion began. On the right end of the arena is Shao Kahn's throne where the left end is the entrance. Like its predecessors, the Pit III possesses a stage Fatality where the opponent is knocked off the bridge where a row of spinning blades will rip them to shreds.
