The Top Ten

1
Scorpion
He is amazing. Top quality I would like to see any of the other characters face this badman so GET OVER HERE and vote because if you don't he'll come over there and get you.
I always liked him I was him for Halloween for 3 years in a Row he so cool when he fires that snake out of his hand (GET OVER HERE! )

SmoothCriminal

He has an amazing story and just so AMAZING! And like, he's an awesome character and sometimes, his character makes me laugh because he is just so angry. Also, he is HELLA strong and like he is cool because he is neutral. He is only in the Mortal Kombat because of the retard Quan Chi and to avenge his death (which he did. ) and his family. To top it off, he's one sexy ninja ;)
GO SHIRAI RYU!
[Newest]Who doesn't love a guy with fire in his eyes, grappling hooks coming out of his arms, and whenever he stabs you screams "GET OVER HERE! "

2Sub Zero
Sub zero could freeze everybody he is the best character off all time please make him number 1 he is the freaking best
Simple, awesome sky blue, freezes everyone and smashes them to bits! 100%, also his story rocks.
Sub Zero Rules can't forgot that he also now the leader of his ninja clan
[Newest]He is so ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ that means boss in panda he can Freeze you

3Raiden
He is the thunder GOD... Yes he is a god... And leader of the free world, he is always the last to stand against shao khan which makes him the greatest and most important character
Without a doubt one of the most respected and celebrated characters in the Mortal Kombat series. Raiden is as old and as wise as time itself. An immortal being with vast combat experience and immeasurable power.

He epitomises the statement "God of Thunder" (step aside Thor) and is the only individual who, on more than one occasion has scarified his own immortality to help aid his Human Being counterparts in the fight against the masked monster Shao Kahn. For that Lord Raiden, you are the best. enough said.
He's the thunder god, there should be no debate, Raiden for the win!
[Newest]He is the god of mortal kombat

4Liu Kang
Kang is Mortal Kombat he can turn into the dragon and throw mad fire balls
He is just so cool its unbelievable even when he is dead his better than everyone else
The champion of mortal kombat.

barish

[Newest]He is boss as hell and deserves to be in the top

5Reptile
Reptile is hands down my favorite character in the entire MK series. He has the best fight in the movie universe and has some of the most compelling moves in the games; acid spit, reptilian beast form, invisibility, and all the most slippery, swift, and animal-oriented beastly movements. He's by far the best of the ninjas in terms of storyline (his race and background as well as loyalty to the main villains) and his service as a top General/Henchman goes hand in hand with his evil persona. Best character ever in MK.
Reptile Should Be 2nd Or 3rd. REPTILE
RULES
PS. SO DOES SCORPION
He looks like a lizard that'd give Bowser a run for his money. Not only that, He should be higher on this list.
[Newest]Can somebody tell me how Mileena is higher than reptile?

6Kitana
Duh,! She's the classiest of them all! The who elegance in her ways and fight style is amazing!
I think Kitana is the most elegant and swift person in the whole game.
"Get over here" - Scorpion
"You have embarked on a sacred mission" - Raiden, Christopher Lambert style.
But... Kitana's the best. Mostly for the fans and wearing blue. And Talisa Soto in the movie... as a kid, she changed my notion of princesses for the better. She's beautiful.
[Newest]She is so stupid and dumb and she sucks in the game

7Ermac
Great Ermac! Misterious, telekinetic, charismatic, awesome! Born as a glitch, one of the most interesting characters as is narrated: "We are Ermac! We are the souls... "
From the first mortal kombat game I had as soon as unlocked Ermac I used him the entire time and won the entire time when I used him. I love the new look for him on the most resent game and love his fatalities.
Ermac is so Radical!, Mysterious, Powerful, Cool, Awesome, amazing and those are the few words that can describe ermac he is the unique character I have ever seen I never anywhere else where there's a character with a bunch of souls inside I love his figthing style and everthing him!
I also love noob I wish I could vote them both they both have the best fatalities.

Lee2cool

[Newest]Ermac is amazing havering multiple souls. And he looks awesome in his costume

8Johnny Cage
This dude's a huge d***, and he knows it. Nobody has more balls in this game then Johnny Cage, And he's going to make sure of that.
Nobody can be that cool with a pair of shades.

Steeluhers

Johnny Cage is a deadly character in the hands of an experienced player. I still laugh at the fact they kept his infamous "nut punch" from all the way back in the 90's movie when he punched Goro there!
[Newest]His so up himself its pissing off the others makes me laugh.


9Sonya Blade
She's Sexy, Smart, and Powerful... What more can you ask for
Sonya Blade all the way! Strong, sexy, deadly. Great combination. Shes a classic character that is in every game!
She is so fourth like she is sexy, deadly and she certainly isn't easy to beat catch like she did beat raiden and Kano in mortal kombat 9.

Tepigwink5587

[Newest]She my favorite and the first comment is so true

10Baraka
Baraka is the coolest it doesn't get much better than blades coming out of your arms laugh out loud
This guy scared me back in the 90's mortal kombat and his bite throw attack was always painful to watch. In a good way
I love Baraka his combos are easy and he is very strong his face is not the best but he can't lose his weapon
[Newest]He is the best person on the game nothing is cooler than a beast with blades coming from his arms

The Contenders

11Noob Saibot
Dark and beautiful as the night.. The shadow of a fallen warrior, brought back by the sorcerer Quan Chi. The original Sub-zero, dying at the hands of Scorpion, after Quan Chi had deceived Scorpion to believing that Sub-Zero slayed his family and clan.
He's sub zeros dead counterpart, in ghost looking black and can make 2 of himself how does that not scream badass. His fatality rips people in half from the feet its crazy
He is cool black colors ninja, elemental and monster.
[Newest]He is a shadow demon of a ice ninja who was wrongfully killed by a different ninja demon.

Plus there's 2 of them

12Smoke
Dodges any attack and unexpectedly sneaks behind you and strikes
Smoke is white ninja, he foote the kicking and dancing.
Smoke is definitely my favourite because of his teleporting abilities. He is able to destroy you without letting you it him and can even go straighg through projectiles!
[Newest]He is my favourite character in the game

13Mileena
Mileena is the sexiest and the most beautiful character in mortal combat! She is so much better than KItana even if she is her clone! She earned the title "Beauty and Beast" not just because of her facial features, but also because of her fighting style, her beauty, and everything else about her. Who cares what she looks like?! She is beautiful just the way she is so all y'all need to stop hatin! Plus, in her own way she's a "Diva". Don't make me get Beyoncรฉ up in here cause I will!
I loved it in Armageddon Where Taven Meets Her And Shes Like "Care To Dance? " it was so hard to beat her because I always pick her she should be 1 in this list cause she is awesome and Kitana is awesome too shes my 2nd fave
SHES DA BOMB DIGGITY OMB. anyone who has a screwed up face but can still be hot and gorgeous is FANTASTIC.
[Newest]Her mouth is ugly she is ugly and she is weak and dumb

14Shao Kahn
King Of Kings... Obey Him Or Die... Darkest And Most Powerful Character In Mortal Kombat Series... Everybody Hates Him Cause They Can't Beat Him...
Shao kahn is my favourite player. Shao kahn in the best. No one in mortal kombat can defeat shao kahn.
He is cool. The ruler of outworld... That takes some skill!
[Newest]He took Edna's queen and sexy daughter and clone her. He's been brain washing dem for years

15Kabal
I think this is how you spell his name. I forgot how to spell the characters' names because I have not played this game in like two months.
His fatality is awesome, I mean turning your opponent small and squash them like a bug and then wipe your feet off BRUTAL.
I used to own ANYONE using kabal when he first came out... So overpowered

16Jax
Jax is almost like a filler character to me. Boring
Jax is nothing less than a beast. Should have at least been in the top 20
Jax is so strong he is stronger than captain marvel

17Kenshi
Kenshi rose from the ashes of a pretty crappy mk game. He made me believe that mk still had a chance at being great he was left to die when shao khan tricked him into opening a tomb with lost souls. These souls then blinded him leaving him to die but kenshi found the sword of his ancestors and waited several years so that he could get used to being blind and so he could have his revenge.
This guy can turn you into a human pretzel... with his mind! I think he deserves higher on this list, because even though he's blind, he still carries a can of whoopass!
He is stylish... Great costume... Great powers and importantly fight for a god cause. He can easily hit the opponent from a long distance and the sword is just awesome and he uses it to the full effect...
[Newest]Kenshi's sword has so much range and can strike so quickly. He will always keep you at a distance and then throw himself at you with his overpowered spirit moves.

18Kung Lao
Kung Lao is winner tournament Mortal Kombat, and he is good fighter, his heart is brave.
He fights with "heart", with pride and honour! Maybe it's the best but it is not understood. My favourite!
What? I thought he died think again looks like there is more than one kung Lao and so he fits into top 10 like he did beat goro but sadly he got killed by shao kahn

Tepigwink5587

[Newest]Her fatality is awesome

19Goro
Goro is big 4 hand's general and prince.
Think of it as Hulk... With 4 arms... And is 2,000 years old... Why isn't he #1 again? Oh, and he knows martial arts... Enough Said...
Goro is the bomb, but where is nightwolf or kung lao? Or shao kahn?

20Nightwolf
Native America done right! Well, close enough anyway. Consistently a great fighter and is a wonderful counterpart to the Liu Kang/ Kung Lao followers of the Thunder God motif.
Noob is the black evil brother of Sub Zero, and Nightwolf is the Shaman of his clan that uses lightning, a green barrier to protect himself. So who's better?
I really don't know but you will mostly pick Noob, but that's my opinion.
