Best Mortal Kombat 9 Characters

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.

He slashes peoples faces which makes their brain flow out, can summon demons from hell, has cool attires in every game (except remember its only my opinion I didn't like his head shape in the game where hi head is scorpion shaped) but other than that he even screams GET OVER HERE! By pulling you with his kunai or the rope dart if you may.

Mortal Kombat 9 is not really Mortal Kombat 9 is a remake of the Trilogy and Mortal Kombat 4. People called it Mortal Kombat 9 because it's the 9th one in the installments.

Duh? What can a fire breathing badass evil most deadliest zombie ninja be but the BEst.. He's the true reason why Mortal Kombat is pure awesomeness.

Scorpion is the best he's got the best back story out of all the mk characters he's much better then sub zero and I love the way he says 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.

Sub zero could be no. 1 as he is awesome with his combos and his ice sword and turning people to ice. practically he is the cryomancer there is and is also the leader of the lin kuei but what he doesn't do is scream GET OVER HERE! And if only he did that there could be a tie cause I like both characters but anyways GET OVER HERE!

Easily the most cerebral fighter. Can control the game pace, play offense, defense, set traps, and lay a ton of damage on you in the corner. He is a slower character, but his ability to manage the spacing of a fight more than makes up for it.

One of the most stylish fighter in mk9, a little bit slow and defensive but if someone love this guy, he or she could definitely win against any and every player in the series.

Sub zero has aleays been the best character, if you come up against a GOGGD sub zero player, you're gonna have to play by his rules. Sub Zero controls how fights are fought

3 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 more.

Reptile isn't only one the the most unique fighters but is also in my opinion one of the best. Suprised sub-zero isn't up here though. Nice list.

He's my fovourite fighter I've never lost with him

4 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.

Guys Johnny is really cool do you know the nut punch and the green ball he throw I was the one who always see Johnny Cage video.

Johnny Cage is the Boss! He even have the best quote when he wins a round and to be hones it fits him more then anybody... "Daamn I'm good! "

Johnny looks awesome in this game - is it his outfit from mk4? Very similar

Johnny cage is the best I never lost with him

5 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.

He has awesome attacks and is easily mastered, he isn't hard to use and has amazing combos... Love him. No homo

Lui Kang is the quickest character and strongest character in Mortal Kombat 9

Best combos in the game and the best combos to connect to 1 another

This is my favorite character and he is the best

6 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 more.

He is a very good character. His shadows keep you at bay, his teleport can get you if you play his projectile game. If he gets you with his ghost ball... you health will be torn away by his shadows. His x ray is massive damage and his fatality is as everyone should be. BRUTAL! So yeah, noob isn't BEST, but he's top 10. Maybe 7

Noob is a very powerful character. He has a pretty fast fighting speed and deals high damage. What I like most about him is that he uses fear to defeat his opponents.

One of the best fatality I have ever seen, very good role in the storyline

Best character for sure...

Noob Saibot can be one of the most overpowered and broken characters if you use him correctly.

7 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.

She kicks major ass. She has sweet moves and is not afraid of anyone.

Sonya is badass best character in Mortal Kombat.

She looks sexier ever. Great new outfit

Easy to use for beginners

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 is made up from the souls of many fighters, it should come as no surprise that he is one of the best all rounders in the game, just awesome.

Ermac is very strong, and awesome plus he ripped jax arms off with his powers who does that

This guy has got a counter attack for every character up his sleeve.

Badass and has the best combos and has telekenisis like powers

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

One of the best characters ever in Mortal Kombat 9. Yeah he was a bit too hideous and his hair sucks in MK9, but you gotta love Kabal. His hookswords are just top notch. And he's super fast too. He is just one of the best. Sad that he gets killed by Sindel in MK9.

He's just a really great character! I've used him for quite a while now, and he's always my favorite character when I play with my brothers and have little tourneys and such. Truly devastating blows.

This guy is my favorite mk fighter - always was and always will be. In MK9 he kicks ass as usual but I hate the fact they made him look so ugly. I mean his arms. His body (not face) wasn't hideous in MK 3 and Deception

Wow I had no idea this guy was so popular! I love Kabal! Weird costume he has but very cool fighter. Did not expect to like him.

10 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.

His best combo can make 42% of damage, its easy to use, his teleporting is easy to use and really useful, if you use it wisely you can kill Shao Kahn and Goro really easily without being damaged at all.

By The Way, I only played it for two days, and I already learned to use every character, and I liked it.

He uses lighting like no other he can do some serious damage in kombat.

He is the strongest of all mortial kombat. He is the true leader.

He should be number 1

The Contenders
11 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 more.

Mileena have great combos, a cool design, and also her personality and background are awesome!

She's not really a good beginner character but once you know her moves she the best one there

Half beauty and half beast I heard someone say. If she has a normal mouth she'd be Kitana #2

One of my favorite characters in mk9 love her combos, movies and fatality

12 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).

One of the best characters belongs top 10

He's ok but not even close to be the best.

Oh come on people really every body falls asleep and I'm pretty sure that raiden is a god when he's dreaming and if you don't know he has his power in dreams

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

Net attack doesn't really allow you to jump over it like other projectiles, plus he is lethally fast

His net and other cool stuff he has can prove a cyborg can beat ass

I love to use all the different gadgets he has.

Cyrax is one of the best his combos are more deadly than anthing

14 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 more.

Just started playing MK with MK9 for the 360. Tried almost all of the characters, but I just felt very confident and smooth when using Kitana for the first time. Definitely the best start I had with any character in a fighting game!

Epic character I know in the whole of Mortal Kombat

Man! She uses here fans and wins all the time.

She is the best love her

15 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 more.

Jade is the prettiest, sexiest, more sense of humour and of course, the hottest when she do her pole dance. Though I love her costume 1

Nice to see Jade again. She kicks ass and her new look is wonderful

That's all I can say she is so amazing

Awesome kick from her... like the speed

16 Kung Lao

Seriously, one of THE best characters! I really love his combos and his brutal fatality!

Hard to master, but when you do, everyone is gonna wish they never fought you.

I really love his brutal fatality. Glad they brought it back

I want to be like KUNG LAO. I want him to kill gorp

17 Smoke

His type of music lay is unique, and if you combo him right, he can be devastating and unbeatable. Plus, he's a demon

Hardly anyone can catch up to Smoke when he is doing offense and he has many defense options too.

I really love smoke the teleport combos the other combos just amazing please love smoke more!

I love to cook the insides of the enemies when I play as him.

18 Kratos Kratos is a fictional character and the titular primary protagonist and anti-hero of the God of War video game series. He is a demi-god who seeks retribution and vengeance on Ares and later, the Greek Gods after he was betrayed and was forced to kill his family .

He beat all of the gods! And he is a demigod. He is the strongest of all characters! He has a lot of powerful weapons too.

Kratos power is so unbalanced I only lost one round on the challenge tower as him.

He may be slow but her can dish put a lot of damage easily. I discovered a %42 damage com o with noeters used.

Kratos s very powerful and strong but Lui kang is the best

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

He's cool to play as my favorite character

Favorite character really cool

20 Stryker

Stryker proves you do not need ice balls or magical powers to kick ass. Stryker is the best!

Stryker DESERVES to be in top 10 the best not the worst! Screw screwattack!

If you can master his special attacks you can beat anyone.

They definitely changed Stryker in mk9. And the change was so AWESOME!

21 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.

Underrated character, high damage and good finishing moves. would probably be used more if he wasn't
an antagonist

Most overlooked character. Easy combos and high damage

He, s just awesome

22 Rain

Has the best combos seen so far which is capable of inflicting more than 60% damage.

I love rain. Because he have great combos and stronger game strategy

All though he uses water he still can beat someone very quickly.

He is beter then scopion

23 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.

Damn right and he's a beast

Very fast character, easily played for both fast paced offensive moves and counter, and also quite easy to use

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

Kenshi is one of the most deadly fighters at any range, using his telekinetic clones to combo you and close range attacks to pummel you.

Kenshi has a really good power like ermac but better his is blue. Ermac copied kenshi.

Kenshi was used in the 2012 tournament and was a killing machine
Eventually guiding th champion to victory

25 Cyber Sub-Zero

I love that teleport trick he does.

He is cool I love his xray it takes a lot of damage
