Top Ten Mortal Kombat Characters


The Contenders: Page 2XW


Amazing character truly deserves a top 10 placement with his combos and fatalities... Great as human and robot form and one of the most realistic...

He's the best character, especially in deadly alliance. His special moves are great and his fight style is easy to master. Plus he can shoot a chainsaw out off his chest, best character ever!

Cant mess with the Robots, especially Cyrax...

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!

24Kurtis 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

Sure, he has no powers, but he has two glocks, grenades, tazer, batons, and more. That's police brutality.

Police brutality coming up! - htoutlaws2012

Jade is kicking woman, and master Kung Fu.

She is better then any girl character because she uses real kombat skills

She should be in top 10!
She must be in top 10! Where was this score based? Duh!
Kung lao should also be in top 10 with jade and nightwolf. what else can I say? Please include he because she is sexy, strong, talented, and was the representatiove of mk in girls gone wired

26Freddy 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).

I was looking and looking. And here he is! Success! Freddy is the best! DO I need to list why? No? I know. YEAH, GO FREDDY! I like the thing where he raises that giant cremater thing and throws (whoever) into it. Awesome...

1,2 Freddy is comin for YOU

Oh my Gosh Wow Freddy Krueger is epic his intro pose is so epic and he seems like very intresting guy to be really good with and I don't know what it is but everything about this guy is so epic!

Freddy Krueger doesn't count as a Mortal Kombat character.

My favorite character good movies and dude he's awesome - samicus

Rain is a pretty good character, but there is no reason not to like him! Screw Attack was not right about Rain being the worse character! I'll tell you he has it cleaver being purple and Rain, ha. but still he is my second favorite ninja, but haters got to hate!

Rain is a straight up boss daddy. Who else can make spraying water in someones face look that badass

He is purple ninja, and for hands he transmit lightnings.

Rain should be higher on this list, it's not even fair how badly I can kick someone's tail with this guy

He is very underrated on this list but that's because he's not that popular in the series. I want him killed so badly yet that would take away the purpose of jax and Sonya!

His move set was obliviously designed to be a rewarding challenge for players to master. It sucks that in every story mode of recent games he hasn't had a playable chapter. Oh well hopefully in MK11 they'll do something.

He's a crazy sadistic criminal he will make a great fighter since he's a thug

One of the Original Greats

31Quan ChiQuan Chi is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise. First appearing as an original guest character in the 1996 animated series Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm, he made his series canon debut as the non-playable main antagonist of Midway's 1997 side-scrolling action-adventure more.

Quan Chi is great sorcerer and fighter, black magic costeem, he is white head, in black colour to eyes. Quan Chi is alliance to old god Shinnok of game MK4, werry good spell and opponent to Sub Zero and Scorpion. Quan Chi is spell to green skull and werry match magy. In serial MK Conquest the Quan Chi have to power teleport and magy to fuji and alliance to sorcerer Shang Tsung.

Why is he not in the top 5 quan chi is one of the best because of his way of manipulating people into getting people to do what he wants not to mention whenever one of your favorite mortal kombat characters dies quan chi will just make them a revenant and they will be back just like that

Quan Chi is master illusion, he is magy to fire skull and extraction. He is very old sorcerer and master magy. Quan Chi have woman servant to Sian, Mika and Sora.

Their souls are mine, the greatest sorcerer in the series. - htoutlaws2012

He doesn't count as a Mortal Kombat character.

Kratos is better than sub zero. In every way possible. He's in two games!

33Jason VoorheesJason Voorhees is a character from the Friday the 13th series. He first appeared in Friday the 13th as the young son of camp cook-turned-murderer, Mrs.

Bets one because he can come back to life! I played every game and I'm pretty sure that no other character did that!

35Kotal Kahn

Kotal Kahn is an amazing character and I can't believe he's not rated higher! He can do combos that cause crazy damage in his Blood God variation, has an awesome special called sun god choke in his Sun God variation, and he's the safest character in his War God variation. He's like the Black Adam of Mortal Kombat, and if you read this you should vote for Kotal Kahn!

I Think he's pretty awesome with variations like war God sun God and Blood Gog

This guy cut off all of Goros arms and then refused to kill him to add insult to injury. Enough said.

36Erron Black

Erron Black may be a new character to Mortal Kombat but he is such a savage. All of his variations feel natural, and you feel like such a badass when you play as him

Down here he shouldn't be down here number three at least

He is the Boba Fett of the Mortal Kombat series!

The Jango Fett of the series - htoutlaws2012

Awesome character armed with daggers and much like Ermac is made of many souls she has many voices in unison. She also like showering in blood because she is more powerful with the more blood on her.

The most beautiful female character in the series. Very fun to play as.
