Rivalries are one of the things that bring an extra layer of hype to competitive fighting games. The personal stakes that they add makes matches between players much more meaningful. One such rivalry is the focus of this new Mortal Kombat documentary, by piemaster.

The documentary, called “Babality” focuses on the rivalry between the Valley Stream Monsters and the Midwest back in Mortal Kombat 9. This rivalry was one of the first major rivalries for that game, and eventually led to a grudge match back in 2011. All these, and more, are the focus of the video below.
