Kitana can be unlocked on the N64 version of MK4 via Gameshark.
Kitana can be unlocked on the PC version of MK4 via downloadable Trainer.
Only Kitana's movelist can be assigned to another character on the Playstation via Codebreaker.

Info:
Kitana was supposed to be in Mortal Kombat 4 (along with Noob Saibot and Kano), but was taken out in favor of the new character Tanya. She was not, however, completely removed from the game: her rendering was still used in Liu Kang's ending, and players could fight as her in the Nintendo 64 and PC versions of the game via a cheat device.

Kitana was originally planned to be in Mortal Kombat 4. However, her skins color palette was changed to brown and outfit color palette to yellow to make Tanya. Her coding is still in the N64 version of the game, and she can be accessed with a GameShark. Her coding is also in the PC version, but it can be only accessed via a trainer. While Kitana's model and textures were deleted from the PlayStation version, her moves were left in, and can be assigned to any character with a Codebreaker.

Play as Kitana:
*N64 GameShark Instructions:
   1) Enter this code: 800fe293 0010
   2) Begin the game and start a match.
   3) Select any character. It won't matter which character you select,
   he/she will automatically be replaced with Kitana.
   4) Once the "Choose your Destiny" screen comes up, choose a tower,
   then IMMEDIATELY press all of the buttons so it doesn't zoom up on
   the tower. If it does this, the game will freeze and you will be
   forced to reset.
   5) Kitana does not have a portrait file (select screen image).
   The N64 cart will read the memory file to prevent it from crashing.

*PlayStation GameShark Instructions:
   1) Enter these three codes:
   800aac24 0006 - P2 is Shinnok
   800BFD6C 0010 - P1 uses Kitana's Moves
   800BFE54 0010 - P2 uses Kitana's Moves
   2) Begin the game and start a match.
   3) Player 1 can select anyone. It doesn't matter who you select, Kitana's
   moves will automatically be given to him/her. Make sure that Player 2
   is SHINNOK, otherwise Kitana's moves will not be used for Player 1.
   4) As long as Player 2 is Shinnok, Player 1 will use Kitana's moves.
   If you do the weapon move (F, F, HK) a Bowie Knife will come out no matter
   who Player 1 is physically, even though it plays like Tanya's Boomerang.
   5) You CAN use the "Play as Kitana" code (800fe293 0010), but during the
   game, the CD crashes when trying to load the portrait file, also known
   as the select screen image, which wasn't included on the PSX CD.
