The Top Ten

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

Best character ever!

The best ever mortal kombat character ever made.

Best character ever created!
GET OVER HERE!

I loved him ever since the first Mortal Kombat game he and sub-zero are the best. Get Over Here!

2 Sub Zero Sub-Zero is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat series and one of the original characters in the first Mortal Kombat game in 1992. A mainstay of the series, Sub-Zero is the only character who has appeared in every main Mortal Kombat fighting game.

He beats scorpion fire melts Ice into water but water puts out fire. Epic and awesome

Cool as ice - CatLeena14

I don't know why he is my favorite character.

Subzero is the bees knees yeah scorpion is close second but subzero has some of the best moves,fatalities,one of which created the esrb

3 Raiden Raiden is a video game character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series by Midway Games. Making his official debut as one of the original seven playable characters in 1992's Mortal Kombat, he is one of the central characters of the franchise.

I absolutely love him! Lightning is also a badass power.

He is the best! I loved him as the main villain in Mortal Kombat 11

The one guy who doesn't change. Solid...like thunder...

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.

4 Liu Kang Liu Kang is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the Mortal Kombat fighting game series from Midway Games, introduced as one of the original seven player characters in the 1992 first game as a Shaolin monk who enters the Mortal Kombat tournament to save Earthrealm.

Did someone seriously say she should be number 1 dumass

Our Earthrealm warriors fought with courage, but none as bravely as Liu Kang

Love liu kang

She Should be No. 1

5 Reptile Reptile is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created for Midway Games by Ed Boon and John Tobias. He debuted in Mortal Kombat as a hidden opponent and appeared in subsequent titles as a playable character, also appearing in the merchandise and other media related ...read more.

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.

Yeah, I agree with you. But reptile is like a cold blooded green ninja badass! He also kicked liu kang's ass in the first movie! And then he got defeated. Anyways... REPTILE RULES!

He looks like a lizard that'd give Bowser a run for his money. Not only that, He should be higher on this list.

He is the best character in this series.

6 Johnny Cage Johnny Cage is a fictional video game character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise by Midway Games. He was introduced as one of the series' original seven player characters in the first Mortal Kombat game in 1992, and has become a staple of the series.

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.

Bad ass who gets babes he's number 1 by far

He is so good

The character I use a lot. - GehennaTheSecond

7 Kitana Kitana is a fictional character from the Mortal Kombat media franchise, where she was introduced as one of the new player characters in the fighting game Mortal Kombat II in 1993. Since then, Kitana appeared in a majority of Mortal Kombat series' video games and its other media, including the films ...read more.

gimme you - Yoshidude

She the Best - CatLeena14

Duh,! She's the classiest of them all! The who elegance in her ways and fight style is amazing!

KITANA AND MILEENA ARE THE BEST!

8 Ermac Ermac is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise by Midway Games. The character originated due to rumors over a diagnostics menu listing that displayed the text ERMACS, followed by claims of an alleged glitch in the first game.

Ermac's telekinetic can easily take the asses of everyone above, he is also not needed to go near to them, just telekinetic force

Ermac is great - ElSherlock

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... "

One of my favorites after Kenshi and Kung Lao

9 Sonya Blade Sonya 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.

Favorite character.

She a cool fighter too - CatLeena14

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!

10 Baraka Baraka is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. Baraka was introduced in Mortal Kombat II in 1993 as an unpredictable warrior in service of Outworld emperor Shao Kahn.

DashieXP made this character really enjoyable. Just watch his videos and the voices he makes for him. - Daviddv0601

Such a great and loyal warrior.

Ow, ya blades hurt! - TriggerTrashKid

Once you figure out how to use him properly he can easily turn into one of the most OP characters in a game. Most of his fatalities are awesome as well. Also can I talk about his design? He looks awesome! Just pure perfection.

The Contenders

11 Noob Saibot Noob Saibot, is a fictional character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He debuted as an unplayable hidden character in Mortal Kombat II, in which he was a black silhouette of the game's other male ninjas, and made his first selectable appearance in the console versions of Ultimate Mortal ...read more.

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.

My favorite Noob Saibot was Deception one. Body is still human but him blood is black.He can throw Shuriken and his partner is Cyborg Smoke. Noob-Smoke was my favorite character. Both is Assasin and they pre-boss at MK Deception.

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 has the best move set, a complete badass

12 Kung Lao

He has a death hat what's not to love!?

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

13 Mileena Mileena is a character from the Mortal Kombat franchise who debuted in the sequel Mortal Kombat II as a clone of Kitana by Shang Tsung using Tarkatan DNA resulting in her mouth having razor sharp teeth that of a Tarkatan like Baraka, she hated her sister Kitana and vowed to destroy her and take over ...read more.

Cool and will eat your butt

All hail Mileena!

One of da best

I like Mileena and Kitana they are a cool fighter in Mortal Kombat game. - CatLeena14

14 Shao Kahn Shao Kahn is a boss, announcer, and recurring playable character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. Introduced in Mortal Kombat II in 1993, he is the primary antagonist of the video game series and extended franchise.

Best boss - ElSherlock

Nobody messes with this devil

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...

This is one of the most iconic characters of the franchise. Shao Kahn needs to be in the top ten. "You suck! " quote from Shao Kahn. - JoshGerman

15 Jax Jackson "Jax" Briggs is a fictional character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise by Midway Games.

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

I like his moves

Jax is the beast and has the ferocity of a lion...should be in top 5

16 Kenshi Takahashi Kenshi is a fictional character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise by Midway Games.

Kenshi 4 1st!

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.

Kenshi is yeet

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!

17 Smoke

Should have been in MKX. One of the best ninja.

Dodges any attack and unexpectedly sneaks behind you and strikes

He has always been my favorite ninja, he has the coolest ninja idea. He resembles what ninjas are supposed to be like

He is my favourite character in the game

18 Goro Goro is a fictional character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He first appears in the original Mortal Kombat as an unplayable boss character, challenging the player before the final fight with Shang Tsung.

Forget shang tsung in mortal kombat 1 goro was the real deal

Goro is one of the most iconic video game characters of all time! Plus he looks awesome! When you see Goro you immediately think of Mortal Kombat! My favourite MK character for sure!

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...

19 Kabal Kabal is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series, who made his debut in Mortal Kombat 3.

My favorite

Kabul is my favorite character

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

20 Jade Jade is a fictional character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series by Midway Games. Debuting in 1993's Mortal Kombat II as an unplayable secret character who was a green palette swap of Kitana, Jade made her first playable appearance in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. She has since become a regular ...read more.

She the best and cool fighter - CatLeena14

SO SEXY

Jade is kicking woman, and master Kung Fu.

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

21 Nitara

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!

HOT and SEXY, DEADLY and BADLY

22 Shang Tsung Shang Tsung is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He is one of the few original characters, debuting in the first Mortal Kombat arcade game, in which he served as the final boss.

Shang Tsung is magicial man, and good fighter. Along legend is taken soul weaking peoples.

Shang Tsung is very old magician man, and kung fu master.

Shang Tsung is sorcerer, great power and push up hand to fire ball. Game MK 1,2,3 is exchange body, Shang is power to reincarnation. Shang is stop time and manipulation. Film MK 1, Shang have great power and serial MK Conquest Shang the transmition soul.

Should be in the top 5 of all time one of the originals

23 Cyrax Cyrax is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series, who made his debut in Mortal Kombat 3.

He is my favourite I choose him like every time I play - BreakFastBeast2005

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!

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...

Cant mess with the Robots, especially Cyrax...

24 Nightwolf Nightwolf is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He made his debut in Mortal Kombat 3.

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.

His green glowing weapons are part of the boss on ladder mode which are really strong. (If you can use them) If you are good with him also try Kratos.

Nightwolf earned my vote the moment he was introduced to me. Bow, tomahawks, etc. HE. IS. DADDY!

25 Freddy Krueger Fred "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).

He's only DLC - ElSherlock

He does not count as a Mortal Kombat character. He is a guest character only. - HexBolt0505

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!

26 Kano Kano is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He is one of the few original characters, debuting in the first Mortal Kombat arcade game.

He looks like Marc Gasol

The coolest character, the best tech, is Somehow beat by a nightmare on elm Street character and kitana is my 2nd least favorite fictional character

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.

27 Sektor Sektor is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He made his debut in Mortal Kombat 3.

Mk without sektor is a joke

He is the Kane from mortal kombat he has light sabers and way better look than cyrax

He's a ninja and also a assassin and a robot, enough said

He's ninja who's also a assassin and robot, enough said

28 Jason Voorhees Jason 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. Voorhees.

Jason is my boi

He ain't just dlc he's the dang best

The guy fought Freddy Krueger and actually lived (technically unlived) to tell the tale (psyche, he didn't say anything cause he doesn't talk, please don't kill me Jason, I'm sorry). He's a revenant who doesn't answer to anyone, not even Liu Kang. If Quan Chi tried to make him work for him, he'd meet the business end of Jason's machete.

Again DLC - ElSherlock

29 Tanya

She my fourth favorte Mk fighter - CatLeena14

Best character in my opinion

Don't you see Liu Kang it's a trap! - htoutlaws2012

I think shes the best playor on the game!

30 Kurtis Stryker

So... Why do people hate him?

SECOND BEST CHARACTER OF ALL TIME AAA! and why do people say he's boring he's like amazing! - Evanescene-Cage

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

31 Cassie Cage Sergeant Cassie Cage is a fictional character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. She made her debut in Mortal Kombat X as the headstrong daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade.

YOU GOT CAGE! - CatLeena14

The most charismatic character especially on mk11

Savage

She is a bad @$$ girl with an attitude and I love it!

32 Kotal 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!

He has one of the best stories I think, I wish the game would've portrayed him like the comic did

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

How is he not rated higher?

33 Rain

Purple rain - CatLeena14

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.

34 Erron Black

"I was saying goodbye"

"bad idea to insult me"

A Swashbuckling mercenary. Has the making of a mysterious adventurer that draws audiences towards him. His role was short in MK, but his impact was undeniable.

John Marston of MK

35 Sindel Sindel is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. She made her debut in Mortal Kombat 3.

I think sindel should be above sir ton characters on this list but what ever
her hair and overall look and personality is sexy, powerful and strong women and mk character - kmtl3

No one fights with this much elegance since the first day... sindel for ever, sub zero second

I like when she throws people with her hair.

I want sindel to be number 1

36 Quan Chi Quan 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 ...read more.

The most clever antagonist in the game, the most powerful sorcerer and also a great character to pick in the kombat mode. why is he rated so low?

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.

37 Predator The Predator is a fictional extraterrestrial species featured in the Predator science-fiction franchise, characterized by its trophy hunting of other species for sport.

Like Predator in his movies - CatLeena14

He is DLC - ElSherlock

Kill dem aliens

He does not count as a Mortal Kombat character. He is a guest character only. - HexBolt0505

38 Blaze

Screw him a little, he'll screw your face. And your whole body.

The one who controls lava is always cool

Taven you're the one who must beat me. - htoutlaws2012

39 Taven

Who tf is Taven

WHO... I never heard of this one

40 Sareena Sareena is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. She made her debut in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, and first became playable in Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition.

Lol she's trash, one the most boring characters in the franchise, she's just a filler

She's going to be a dlc for mkx

41 Motaro Motaro is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He made his first appearance as a sub-boss character in Mortal Kombat 3, where he has the legs of a horse and the torso of a man.

Motaro is a Centaur and guard Shao Kahn.

He I said my favourite character.

42 Frost

Cool fighter - CatLeena14

A complex, and power hungry apprentice to Sub Zero of the Lin Kuei. - htoutlaws2012

Most underrated character -_-

Let's see she is sub zeros apprentice.she is the girl version of sub zero.and at on point she was more powerful than sub zero by taking his medallion

43 Li Mei Li Mei is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. She made her debut in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.

She is my favorite character

Li mei is awesome her fatality is the best in mk descendants and she was in the new mortal kombat x but they didn't make her a playable character sad faces I'm surprised that she is 42 I thought she was a great character her clothes were a little weird but there sexy shes a hotty

Li mei was the best character in mortal Kombat to me I think they should put her in mk 11 and if not I will be so mad

Li Mei is one of the most underrated characters, she's awesome and a total hot badass female, she must return for the upcoming games

44 Taja

Who tf is taja!? - alvinfhrz

Taja is beautiful girl to serial mortal kombat conquest of Google. Taja is part Kristiana Locken. Werry small beautiful woman fire hair, she is frend to monk Kung Lao. He is actor Paolo Montalban and fighter name Siro, he is Daniel Bernhardt. Taja is werry great power and super speed. His opponent of out world, woman Vorpax, sorcerer Shang Tsung and Shao Kahn. MK Conquest is version to werry last years back.

45 Bo Rai Cho Bo' Rai Cho is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series, who made his debut in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.

I cannot let you out of the village unless you think you can beat me and that you are ready. - htoutlaws2012

He's a drunk piece but he's awesome

46 Khameleon

Cool! - Babygirl7

47 Chameleon

He can change into all the classic ninjas

The ninja that changed into any ninja he wanted and had all they're moves n powers. - udatermin81o

He is cool, strong, superb and outstanding. If you think of fighting him, then think about how you are going to fight yourself

Has very quick kicks/punches so he's simple to use and efficiently defeat the enemy.

48 Fujin

Total Fuji god, great jacket, big grey hair. Fujin is old God great power. He is spirit to big Fuji. Good part Fujin to game MK 4.

He is my best charater because wind wll control any other character.

The man who should be playable in MK X. - htoutlaws2012

49 D'Vorah D'Vorah is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series, who made her debut in Mortal Kombat X.

Favorite in all aspects. Game play, character and looks.

Her fatality is AWESOME

She ranks up with the best women in the games like Sonya and Kitana Dvorah is awesome

Tanya numer 2 basically.

So much better than most of the characters, good looks with a killer personality to match.

Best Character Ever, Melina Kitana And Sindel Too
