Top Ten Mortal Kombat Characters
The Top Ten Mortal Kombat Characters
I loved him ever since the first Mortal Kombat game he and sub-zero are the best. Get Over Here!
I've been a mortal kombat fan ever since I was years old back in the 90's. To the people that might think that's a parenting fail... It's not their fault, I found it on my own and got to see it through other friends of mine. My parents were horrified to find out I wanted the first mortal kombat game! Haha for Halloween I was skorpion. I've been a fan of Skorpion a long time, an was him for Halloween many years in a row till I outgrew the event. I thought the film adaptation where his spike came out of his hand was much cooler than when they switched him to the chain weapon. Oh well, still my favorite character
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.
Scorpion is the best and most powerful fighter in all of the mortal kombat series.
sub zero is better than scorpion this is true he is number one not scorpion
He beats scorpion fire melts Ice into water but water puts out fire. Epic and awesome
I REFUSE TO STOP VOTING UNTIL SUB ZERO HAS CLAIMED HIS SPOT OVER SCORPION, AT THE NUMBER 1 SPOT! He is the best character, amazing moves, amazing fatalities, just an all around amazing character! If anyone deserves number one, it is the king of Mortal Kombat, SUB ZERO! Bring on anyone in the whole series and he will beat ALL OF THEM! SUB ZERO WINS! FATALITY. Who's Next?
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
Our Earthrealm warriors fought with courage, but none as bravely as Liu Kang
Uh, are you kidding me? Liu Kang is so epic! Get this guy @ #1 right now or I'll become the dragon and rip your torso off! He can defeat Shao Khan with the flick of a finger!
He is the champion, there is no other way to put it, he is the face of mortal kombat, the best character in terms of moves, and he is based off bruce lee, a god!
Liu kang so is third place like he shouts all the time when he's doing his fights and like he even beats shao Kahn! So he so comes as my third favourite - Tepigwink5587
He is the best! I loved him as the main villain in Mortal Kombat 11
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.
Raiden is the symbol of the entire franchise. He's not only the most iconic and recognizable character in the franchise, but of the entire genre also. Scorpion is awesome, but nothing beats his gibberish. "Your momma from L.A.! ", can I say more?
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
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.
reptile is the best simply the best! 1st hidden character this guy is a legend! ev
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!
Between the shades, the ball punching, and his dialogue, Johnny is the probably the greatest comic relief character ever.Not to mention his brutal fatalities. - DamonRageDevil
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.
Princess of outworld. She is powerful, sexy, beautiful. Amazing moves, amazing weapon, amazing fighting styles. She is 1st. She is the best!
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... "
Ermac's telekinetic can easily take the asses of everyone above, he is also not needed to go near to them, just telekinetic force
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.
He is the best player according to me... Not only is his powers but also you have to admire his combos... Very much top class...
We Are many... You Are but one...i just love ermac
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
She is the best female character of Mortal Kombat and she is stronger than every female fighter in Mortal Kombat, I wonder why people always choose Kitana than her she is way stronger than Kitana
DashieXP made this character really enjoyable. Just watch his videos and the voices he makes for him. - Daviddv0601
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.
Baraka is the coolest it doesn't get much better than blades coming out of your arms laugh out loud
If you learn his combos and figure out how to use him properly, Baraka can be one of the most powerful characters in the game. Very fun to play as, and one of the coolest looking characters in all of Mortal Kombat.
I like Mileena and Kitana they are a cool fighter in Mortal Kombat game. - CatLeena14
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
Mileena is known as the sexiest characters in all of mortal kombat. I think she is a very strong and creepy character but she is also very good with her biting her sais are great to keep far range and I love her role in story but also in just straight up fighting she says funny stuff in x like "I saw you staring" and she was also in a lot of the mk games she stared in the second game so she has some history
His dark appearance makes him mysterious and the ability to fight with his shadow is so cool.
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
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.
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
Because when he fights people he defies speed. He is also a magician. He'll take that bunny out his hat to feed his foes like if it was carrots
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
Shao kahn is my favourite player. Shao kahn in the best. No one in mortal kombat can defeat shao kahn.
He took Edna's queen and sexy daughter and clone her. He's been brain washing dem for years
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
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...
Kenshi is just such an amazing character in the fact that even though he is blind, he still has more skill than most fighters on this roster. Puts Scorpion to shame with his swordsman skills and has telepathic powers to rival Ermac. Plus he does all this... BLIND. Badass sword full of ghosts... Definitely best character in MK.
Great in both cyborg and human versions, although I like the human one the most.
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
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?
Forget shang tsung in mortal kombat 1 goro was the real deal
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
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.
Kabul is my favorite character
Jade is kicking woman, and master Kung Fu.
She is better then any girl character because she uses real kombat skills
She the best and cool fighter - CatLeena14
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...
He is my favourite I choose him like every time I play - BreakFastBeast2005
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
She's good looking - ElSherlock
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
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!
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.
He's a crazy sadistic criminal he will make a great fighter since he's a thug
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.
He does not count as a Mortal Kombat character. He is a guest character only. - HexBolt0505
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
I prefer sektor over johnny cage.
Don't you see Liu Kang it's a trap! - htoutlaws2012
Best character in my opinion
I think shes the best playor on the game!
The traitor ninja.
My favourite female.
this man is awesome if I saw him I would join him he's so good in this game oh he's dlc? I DON'T CARE.
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.
Bets one because he can come back to life! I played every game and I'm pretty sure that no other character did that!
He does not count as a Mortal Kombat character. He is a guest character only. - HexBolt0505
STRYKER's not THAT bad! He may not have powers and his design might've been terrible in the first game, but in MK9 he's badass and should definitely be added in future games.
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.
She is a bad @$$ girl with an attitude and I love it!
Cassie Cage: sassy & sexy - alvinfhrz
Daughter of Johnny lame fatalities. - htoutlaws2012
Got her Mom's strength and Dad's charm
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?
Why isn't he ranked higher? He hasn't been an official character in the last games (he was in MK9 but as DLC. Either way he was cool and his fatalities were sick), it's time for him to return!
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.
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.
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
He is the Boba Fett of the Mortal Kombat series!
Down here he shouldn't be down here number three at least
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
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
I like when she throws people with her hair.
I want sindel to be number 1
No one fights with this much elegance since the first day... sindel for ever, sub zero second
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.
WHO... I never heard of this one
Who tf is Taven
He does not count as a Mortal Kombat character. He is a guest character only. - HexBolt0505
Like Predator in his movies - CatLeena14
The best warrior and hunter on this planet
Predator is the boss
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
Motaro is a Centaur and guard Shao Kahn.
He I said my favourite character.
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
I must say I loved her design in MK11 as a cyborg. Ed Boon himself said that she's more than a "female sub-zero", and although many don't like the idea of her betraying her master, I think it's what makes her the more interesting.
Most underrated character -_-
Cool fighter - CatLeena14
A complex, and power hungry apprentice to Sub Zero of the Lin Kuei. - htoutlaws2012
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.
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
Cool! - Babygirl7
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.
He needs a reinvention. Maybe animal mimicry or nightwolf-like animal summons.
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
Her fatality is AWESOME
Favorite in all aspects. Game play, character and looks.
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
Strong and also pretty
She needs to come back!
