Top 10 Fighting Game Characters


The Top TenXW

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

Yeah, a character that iconic easily deserves his place in this top ten list. What else could I say? "Come here. "

Most of all is signature moves are legendary moves. - Johnnyrp666

I love how he speaks (GET OVER HERE! ) and he's my favourite character in any Mortal Kombat game. Even Ryu is good too. But it is really too much different game. Like super powers and shoryuken or something. But I vote for Scorpion.
Scorpion Wins! Fatality!

2Ryu - Street Fighter

The fighter on which all other fighters were based on, along with Ken, which is further down on the list for some reason.

The most iconic and recognizable character period - nytrizzle

Ryu is the symbol of fighting games and nobody can challenge him.

3Jin Kazama - Tekken

We all have played fighting games (either tekken, either street fighter, either both or something else) but it's certain that we all have played and loved tekken as well as Jin...especially most gamers have identified with this epic character!

He can transform into Devil Jin and he'll beat you up like no one else. I'd like to see scorpion take on him in devil form

Jin is the most handsome and powerful character that I have seen

Jin is most powerful in this list because he can into devil and beat anyone

14Raiden - Mortal Kombat

Lightning God. Leader. Cool Hat. Did I say lightning?

15Johnny Cage - Mortal KombatV1 Comment
16Sonya Blade - Mortal KombatSonya 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.

The most famous female character in any fighting game sonya blade what a bad ass she is

This girl knows how to kick your... - Magnolia

17Kano - Mortal Kombat

Kano is my favourite character in Mortal Kombat and in my opinion the best character in Mortal Kombat. Kano is the most bad ass character that plays by his own rules while leading the Black Dragons and can shoot a laser out of his eye. Plus how awesome is that metal plate on his face, which I gave to my created character in MKA. I think Kano should be ranked 1.

He one of the worst guy in fighting game history there I said it - s646463

Never understood why players jumped to calling Kano 'lame' or weak. I've used them, they're neither; In my opinion hating a fight game charcter because they're an antagonist or their rival is female is a lame reason.
