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!

4Raiden
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!

5Sonya 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.

6Johnny 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

j. cage is the best... even his bability is better than any other characters fatality, he is badass.. You've been caged

7Kitana
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.
More comments about Kitana

8Reptile
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.

9Mileena
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 Beyoncé up in here cause I will!
SHES DA BOMB DIGGITY OMB. anyone who has a screwed up face but can still be hot and gorgeous is FANTASTIC.
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

10Ermac
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... "
He is Master! A"ldúůaskafJFJOUFfjoHfUASHfhjDHSJhggdsjgidjiggsdgusdigsdiugijsdigjdguiujgugudgdugushsguhghghgdudghughjdghgjdhgj :D: XXDSDLSDDKOKFOafi YEAH HE ROCK : HIS BEST ASJFHSHGJGJASJASgg FASFASsfafFSA he rock because he have a lot of spell probably he is bejhsauheue
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.

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.

12Shao 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!
More comments about Shao Kahn

13Smoke
dodges any attack and unexpectedly sneaks behind you and strikes
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!
Smoke is white ninja, he foote the kicking and dancing.

15Goro
Goro is big 4 hand's general and prince.
Esse é dáora... Mas... Não se com para com johnny cage!
this is good... But... Does not compare with johnny cage!
esto es bueno... Pero... No se compara con Johnny Cage!
Goro is the bomb, but where is nightwolf or kung lao? Or shao kahn?
More comments about Goro

16Kung 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

17Kabal
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.
I used to own ANYONE using kabal when he first came out... So overpowered
He's a badass, he's faster than anyone else, his hookblades are wicked, he's unique. I don't know what else you want in a MK fighter.

18Kenshi
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!
EVAN THOUGH HE'S BLIND HE CAN WHOOP SOME ASS HIS SWOARD SHARP ASS HELL

19Kurtis Stryker
The Bruce Willis of UMK3 and MK9. He sports two semi automatic Glocks, a riot beat stick, a taser, infinite grenades and bullets. Basically the best guy to run into during a zombie apocalypse.
Striker is awesome even though his moves all involve guns which have no fun in the game... Make hi
Who else in mk shoots their opponent and then kicks them on to the ground and throws a grenade at their head? No one stryker kicks ass he deserves #1 spot I mean he can even kick scorpians ass!

20Nightwolf
HE WILL FIRE TEN SPIRIT ARROWS INTO YOU BEFORE YOU ATTACK ONCE. HE IS THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR! HE WILL TAKE DOWN ANYONE!

21Nitara
HOT and SEXY, DEADLY and BADLY
Probably one of the most beautifully and originally designed character of the franchise. Looks matters in MK for sure. But in a game where almost everyone was a ninja or a god before MKDA, she came as a pretty vile and agressive vampire (One of the most powerful character in terms of damage for the entire franchise based on her the appearance. ) But still, fast and agile.
Really interesting in terms of potential storywise and gameplay-wise. First character that has blood related powers and first winged character. They had cool stuff all along but Nitara clearly is appart in this particular franchise and for her coast to coast originality, she should one day be granted what she deserves and appear as one of the greatest, most interesting characters in the franchise. BANZAI!

22Sindel
I like when she throws people with her hair.
Great Weave! <3 JK I LOVE SINDEL My most used character!
