Top 10 Strongest Mortal Kombat 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.

Scorpion looks the coolest and is definitely the strongest. He has hellfire swords get over here spears and can teleport. He is a misunderstood character who needs to be in first place due to his awesomeness

This guy and his clan attacked the Special Forces! Ninjas with swords and kunais vs people with AK's Gatling Guns, RPG's and the Shirai Ryu WON. Yes he does have a short temper but that is what gets him to control his powers. Think of him as a badass Hulk.

Scorpion! My overall favorite character. I’m not dissing anyone else’s opinion but the thing I like most about Scorpion is his backstory (Wife and Baby killed) I also like his power (Control Hellfire) and mostly his weapons! (Chains and daggers) But one more thing is when a fight first starts and Scorpion walks in the arena you can hear his chains rattling!

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 should have been posted above scorpion only because his fighting style is much better. They make all these videos of scorpion killing him but I believe that's only because scorpion has such a powerful hate twords him for what quanchi did to his clan. If sub zero shared that same rage I believe it would be over in mear seconds. I respect both guys but sub-zero is overall a more skilled fighter. At times maybe not as ready but the original sub-zero takes the win for sure.

Not sure if anyone knows but the original sub-zero Bi Han beat 'scorpion' aka hanzo hasashi twice before he was killed the first time being when hanzo was human and a second time when he was in his more badass hellfire form and only lost the third fight finally being overwhelmed.

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.

Immortality is not the only reason why I respect this MK character. As many have pointed before me, he held his own against the deadly alliance of Quan Chi and Tsang Sung. He vanquished Shao Khan with the endowments bestowed by the elder gods. He selflessly sacrificed himself against Onaga. Finally, he (spoiler alert) decapitated Shinnok in the latest installment after being corrupted by the tainted Jinsei. You can argue on brute strength to Onaga, influence to the alliance, and will power to scorpion, but overall, as far as being a well rounded leader, Raiden wins.

4 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

#28... REALLY? Reptile is strong. He should be higher on the list..

Reptile have long tongue which can pull out anything

I like reptile he spits acid it can melt every thing who doesn't think that's cool:-)

5 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 the greatest character (Or ninja) In my opinion; and honestly Ermac should at #10 instead of Shang Tsung. Even in the original timeline Ermac was the once whom taught Kenshi telekinesis (or just the TK slam), but a warrior whom originally was created by the magics from Shao kahn to be used labeled as his greatest enforcer; and now as a mysterious warrior freed from Shao kahns control and becoming a force of good is honestly one of the greatest character stories in the game... Ermac may be silent and enigmatic, but his soul based magic (Sorcery) and psychic powers could over whelm any of the fighters below him and prove a great match up to the ones before him.

6 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.

Shao Kahn is way stronger than Onaga. first of all, in Armageddon, Shao Kahn is dragged from the pyramid by Onaga. in mk9, Shao Kahn returns and receives the power of Blaze. therefore Shao Kahn must've defeated Onaga again, this time fair and square. on top of this, towards the end of mkx, all the elder gods joined forces with Raiden to attack the Kahn, yet it barely tickled him as he described the elder gods as being "mere toothless worms". Hence, Shao Kahn is much stronger than Onaga and is therefore the most powerful being in the mk universe.

7 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.

One of the more high damage characters; the kanoball is one of the simplest special moves to preform and is really effective.

8 Onaga Onaga, the Dragon King, is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He made his debut in Mortal Kombat: Deception, in which he also served as the main antagonist and final boss.

Onaga is the previous ruler of Outword. In Deception, Raiden, Shinnok, and Quanchi, put together all their strength to beat Onaga, but all that just ended up knocking him back a few meters. Also, in the story mode, the whole time, Shujinko spent years completing a quest. But in the end, it was just Onaga tricking him into bringing him back.

Guy walked through an Elder God and two of the strongest sorcerers attacks and then brushed off said Elder God's sacrifice explosion like it was a party popper.

One on one with no interference, Onaga would anhilate any other kombatant.

9 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.

Had the most amazing special moves in MK II, you could actually trick the game with him. Plus excellent scary look! By far my favorite.

He is one of the deadliest characters in mortal kombet and always takes his scenes greatly

The most amazing character ever. Cool and deadly!

10 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

Kitana and mileena are awesome but cassis cage

Mileena strong than kitana jade and scarlet

Mileena is one of my favorite. characters! I think she is very powerful!

The Contenders
11 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).

I like him but his fatalites don't make sense. He died in fire, which should be his weakness,but his fatalites always involve fire

12 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

Quanchi can bring back the dead. He's also the back cunning person in Mortal Kombat, he killed Scorpion, his family, and his clan disguising as Sub-Zero, then brought him back to life so Scorpion can work for him and kill the real Sub Zero. So once he was killed, Quanchi brought him back to life as well so he can work for him as well, his name is now Noob Saibot. A while later, Noob's younger brother took on the name as Sub Zero

Quran chi is an amazing player and deserves to be in the top 5

He looks like Pinhead on steroids... Total badass.

13 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 has to be the strongest of them all especially because of his ways of crucially killing people and how he isn't scared of anyone, as a matter of fact what look he has against his opponent.

He should be number one because he is unstoppable and always comes back for revenge.

Of course it would be Jason he is like huge but leather face looks op

14 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.

Sonya da beat because she survived so many fights and to all da haters dat wanna talk about her looks, well it doesn't matter when you play her in mk11 she very easy to use and very strong.

Sonya defeated ermac she should be in top ten

Her down kicks will put you out of you misery. And shes mega super HOT.

15 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.

Liu Kang is should be up around the top. He has defeated Shao Khan, Shang Tsung, and plenty of others. Scorpion should definitely not be #1 and should not be above Liu Kang. Liu Kang has also won multiple tournaments. He would beat characters that are above him in this list.

Lui Kang won the 10th Mortal Kombat tournament, he beat Shao Kahn, Goro, and Shang Tsung.

He won the Mortal Kombat tournament with a very good and spectacular fighting style

16 One Being

No brainer, I am an atheist but the premise of an omnipotent being speaks for itself. The elder gods themselves united to defeat this God, the elder gods are reputedly the strongest beings in the franchise, Raiden is a minor god though still stronger than the majority if non gods. Shinnok should in theory be unstoppable then unless when against another elder god or greater. Onaga was far above Raiden and the Deadly Alliance and was just a tool for this said One Being, gives you some idea of how powerful it must be.

17 Blaze

He's completely made of fire and lava, and no human has ever beat him except Taven. In Armageddon, Argus, Taven's dad, made him so he could beat everyone, but Taven ended up beating him.

Actually blaze is the most powerful Mortal Kombat character of all time. He caused Armageddon by devouring existence itself. No one can beat blaze.

Blaze actually deserves to be number 1. Without question.

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

Kenshi is my dogs name and Kenshi means Warrior of the Paralyzed.

He's the best, coolest, strongest, and has a nice ASS!

Kenobi is awesome but sub zero better

19 Erron Black Erron Black is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. An Earthrealm-born Outworld mercenary and former member of the Black Dragon, Erron is an Outlander that serves closely to the Outworld throne, serving whoever is ruler of Outworld. Originally being introduced in the Mortal Kombat... read more
20 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 the right hand man of Shao Kahn, and is a very powerful wizard. No one was able to beat him for 90 years. Also, he can take away souls and transform into other people and take their power as well. So if done right, he can transform for a few minutes. He mainly uses this for manipulation though.

21 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

Noob is awesome! He is the original Sub Zero and has ties to Smoke and Sindel. He is very Unique like Scorpion and is plenty strong to whip anyone!

I believe Noob Saibot should be higher; Being an undead wraith whom's power is based on the dark shadows, means you cannot die.

Why the heck is he not listed here?

22 Kronika

Should be at number 2. She is stronger than elder gods but weaker then the one being

23 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.

Defeated by johnny cage what a stupid character johnny is way stronger than this wierdo.

He was and still is a very strong character

He is a boss 4 ARMS and shiva is crap

24 Rain

Seriously... That dude has power over water, lightning and all kinds of weather! He's a Demigod!

25 Taven

He defeated shinnok, goro, shao khan, shang tsung won four tournaments and is rivals with kung lao who defeted kintaro and the deadly alliance he took down ermac and is only killed by a god and a surprise attack by shang tung

In Armageddon, Taven ended up beating three quarters of all the Mortal Kombat characters, inclund Blaze. He also saved the realms from total destruction.
