Best Mortal Kombat 9 Characters


The Top TenXW

1ScorpionScorpion is a recurring player character and occasional boss character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created by Ed Boon and John Tobias.

Dude this guy should be like number 1 I mean he can take on a whole army plus he's the only who can take on Smoke

Very easy to play, has moves that almost cover all aspects of fighting, including counter attack as the teleport, long range including the hell fire and the get over here rope, then there's the take down, which is very very good for close combat as they almost never see it coming, his amazing combos,

Who doesn't like this guy? He is awesome - Magnolia

He's got the best fatalities and brutalities ever

Easily the most cerebral fighter. Can control the game pace, play offense, defense, set traps, and lay a ton of damage on you in the corner. He is a slower character, but his ability to manage the spacing of a fight more than makes up for it.

He chills down all the other fighters with just a ice ball!

Sub zero is one of my favorite charters and I am very good playing as him too

Sub-zero has defense and offense under control. Great combos. Play me online as Drago34

3Sonya BladeSonya Blade is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat series. Debuting in the original Mortal Kombat game from 1992, she was a late addition to the game as developers decided deep into the development cycle that the game needed a female character.

She looks sexier ever. Great new outfit - Magnolia

She kicks major ass. She has sweet moves and is not afraid of anyone.

Sonya is badass best character in Mortal Kombat. - egnomac

Easy to use for beginners

4Johnny Cage

Who doesn't love the classic nut punch?

Johnny looks awesome in this game - is it his outfit from mk4? Very similar - Magnolia

Johnny cage is the best I never lost with him

He's just a really great character! I've used him for quite a while now, and he's always my favorite character when I play with my brothers and have little tourneys and such. Truly devastating blows.

He has little to know weaknesses, and the buzzsaw is good against crouch-spammers.

Wow I had no idea this guy was so popular! I love Kabal! Weird costume he has but very cool fighter. Did not expect to like him. - evoxpisces

Ya true good fighter I love the fighter I've plated all MKs my favorite is MK vs DC and MK9

6Liu Kang

This is my favorite character and he is the best

He has awesome attacks and is easily mastered, he isn't hard to use and has amazing combos... Love him. No homo

Best combos in the game and the best combos to connect to 1 another

No one can stand him

Ermac is very strong, and awesome plus he ripped jax arms off with his powers who does that

This guy has got a counter attack for every character up his sleeve.

Great moves and combos, great appearance, possibly the best magic power, and a nice history following the original trilogy and being shrouded by mystery in MK3

He is basically to me the 2

Although she can be really cheap if you use her right, she still has a unique look, fighting style, and despite her mouth she's arguable one of if not the most sexy girl in the series

One of my favorite characters in mk9 love her combos, movies and fatality

She is the coolest and more most unique female ninja ever created

Half beauty and half beast I heard someone say. If she has a normal mouth she'd be Kitana #2

9Noob Saibot

He is a very good character. His shadows keep you at bay, his teleport can get you if you play his projectile game. If he gets you with his ghost ball... you health will be torn away by his shadows. His x ray is massive damage and his fatality is as everyone should be. BRUTAL! So yeah, noob isn't BEST, but he's top 10. Maybe 7

Noob is a very powerful character. He has a pretty fast fighting speed and deals high damage. What I like most about him is that he uses fear to defeat his opponents.

Noob Saibot can be one of the most overpowered and broken characters if you use him correctly.

Op in trilogy

Nice to see Jade again. She kicks ass and her new look is wonderful - Magnolia

Awesome kick from her... like the speed

The Contenders


Just started playing MK with MK9 for the 360. Tried almost all of the characters, but I just felt very confident and smooth when using Kitana for the first time. Definitely the best start I had with any character in a fighting game!

Man! She uses here fans and wins all the time.

Best FEMALE character in the whole game

Epic character I know in the whole of mortal kombat

Stryker proves you do not need ice balls or magical powers to kick ass. Stryker is the best!

Stryker DESERVES to be in top 10 the best not the worst! Screw screwattack!

If you can master his special attacks you can beat anyone.

Police brutality, coming up!

Reptile isn't only one the the most unique fighters but is also in my opinion one of the best. Suprised sub-zero isn't up here though. Nice list.

14Freddy KruegerFred "Freddy" Krueger is the main antagonist of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series. He first appeared in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).

One of the best characters belongs top 10

15Kung Lao

I really love his brutal fatality. Glad they brought it back - Magnolia

I want to be like KUNG LAO. I want him to kill gorp

You can have endless combos with this guy

Seriously, one of THE best characters! I really love his combos and his brutal fatality!

V3 Comments

Underrated character, high damage and good finishing moves. would probably be used more if he wasn't
an antagonist

V2 Comments

Net attack doesn't really allow you to jump over it like other projectiles, plus he is lethally fast

I love to use all the different gadgets he has.

He is best of mortal kombat world

V1 Comment

Has the best combos seen so far which is capable of inflicting more than 60% damage.

I love rain. Because he have great combos and stronger game strategy

All though he uses water he still can beat someone very quickly.

V2 Comments

His type of music lay is unique, and if you combo him right, he can be devastating and unbeatable. Plus, he's a demon

Hardly anyone can catch up to Smoke when he is doing offense and he has many defense options too.

I really love smoke the teleport combos the other combos just amazing please love smoke more!

I love to cook the insides of the enemies when I play as him.

V1 Comment

His best combo can make 42% of damage, its easy to use, his teleporting is easy to use and really useful, if you use it wisely you can kill Shao Kahn and Goro really easily without being damaged at all.

By The Way, I only played it for two days, and I already learned to use every character, and I liked it.

He the most powerful character mortal kombat he should be at first he can use torpedo again and again

He uses lighting like no other he can do some serious damage in kombat.
