Top Ten Reasons Why Super Smash Bros. Is Better Than Mortal Kombat

The Top Ten

1 Better Graphics

Eh, I think the graphics of both games are pretty good.

Graphics don't make a game - MrQuaz680

Mortal kombat has better ones - Nateawesomeness

That's true. SSBM graphics are way better than MK9

2 Stronger Characters

Link can defeat everyone in Mortal Kombat!

Probably ike, link or kirby been more stronger than characters like Goro, Baraka or Noob Saibot, but in what universe luigi been more stronger than a mortal kombat character?

So what do you have any proof

Really...mortal kombat characters are way stronger then smash bros characters,well,exept for sonic maybe - Nateawesomeness

3 Better Stages

Well mk stages are more fair

To be fair,mortal kombat stages are more fair - Nateawesomeness

Well all of mis r fair,and smash bros only has like 3 fair ones

Ok u got me their that is true but MK's stges have more mystery to them. - MrQuaz680

4 Better Music

This should be top. Nintendo music is consistently heavenly. Other VG music isn't even trying in my opinion. Nintendo are hands down the best composers in their medium, and some songs are more than enough to rival actual songs today in my opinion.

Mario, Kirby, and Sonic music are amazing!

Most of the songs are bad

Well Super Smash Bros. is not one universe, you know Mario, Sonic, Legend of Zelda and so on
while Mortal Kombat is just one.
And MK has maybe the best game theme, in my opinion. - Hdhs1

5 Smash Bros. is for All Ages and Mortal Kombat is only for Adults

All I'm going to say on this one is too often games that are meant for all ages are hated on too much while games with a M rating are loved too much. The only exceptions being of course Sonic and SpongeBob games because apparently no ones allowed to not absolutely worship those as if God Himself made them.

Correction: Smash Bros WAS for all ages. Then they added an adults-only character and even though said character is DLC they still push people into buying said character.

Smash bros brawl and melee are rated T.

Doesn't matter, only manchildren play smash melee. - DensestPotato

6 More Powerful Looking

I'm gonna have to disagree with you there. You have to agree that Scorpion looks a lot more powerful than Jigglypuff. - SlimVeggie

Not Relly I mean a guy with a skull for a face is kinda more powerful than a puff ball - MrQuaz680

No doubt about it,someone from Xbox is defanetly gonna look stronger then a Nintendo character - Nateawesomeness

Really! First you say cuter,then they look more powerful,hypnocrite - Nateawesomeness

7 More Fun

You can't argue it is awesome to kill the other Nintendo Mascots with your favorite character! Heck, you can even play as yourself!

As much as I love Smash bros, I prefer Mortal Kombat way more. - Chaotixhero

Me too I understand that the smash series is a staple when it comes to Mario but Mk is probably the best fighting game besides street fighter - MrQuaz680

Mortal kombat has more attacks - Nateawesomeness

I think their equal,but mortal kombat is getting offended,so I'm on mis side for this - Nateawesomeness

8 No Fatalities

Did any of you insisting that fatalities are just called losing people even PLAY any MK games, at least the earlier ones? Depending on the game there are also Animalities, Babalities, and the infamous Friendships- all of which still mean somebody lost. It's also possible to win a match without using any finishing moves whatsoever but it still means the other person lost. Not to mention when it's only round 1 of a 2 out of 3 fight- then it doesn't even prompt for a finishing move of any kind but again somebody still loses here. So tell me again how fatalities are just losing.

I won't "deal with it" until you deal with fatalities being way too much blood than a human being even has and being mutilated beyond recognition, which is much more than "just a way of speech that is called losing"

"Fatalities are just called losing" people: in Smash, you can lose but WITHOUT GETTING MAIMED AND LOSING AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF BLOOD.

"Fatalities are just called losing"? I never knew losing always meant losing buckets of blood if not other internal organs. And what about when someone loses to an Animality or even a Babality?

9 Cuter Characters

If cute characters don't belong in a fighting game, look up "Sonic the Fighters" or "Sonic Championship" (same game, different names depending on the market). It's a Sonic game with several of the franchises characters, all of which could be considered cute and is in fact... A FIGHTING GAME.

Which cute characters make them look weak!,that's why mortal combat made them look badass!

Why does cuter characters mean a better game? - SlimVeggie

oh ok

10 Better Story

As someone mentioned this is indeed pretty subjected... plus I'd argue against that smash having a better story? neither have a master piece of a story but for a fighter you got to give mk the credit for a great story throughout the years I'm talking about throughout the whole series all the way until X. if you can even remove the biasness you got against it that is...

This is again subjective - MrQuaz680

I have to agree with this one,but mortal combat is still better

Actually, the story is a lot more confusing and convoluted than just MKX. The story spans the entire series, not just MKX. - SlimVeggie

The Contenders

11 Easier Controls

Mortal Kombat's controls were hard to control - quintonshark8713

12 Final Smashes are better than Fatalities

Even the final smashes from the sword-wielding characters don't leave more blood than can ever come from one person all over the place

The fatalities may kind of be a Final mash, but they're not unique to their character. And if another character has your Final Smash in Smash, it'll only be that character. But seriously,which is cooler? Getting into a spaceship and start choosing which person on the stage you hate the most and start unleashing lasers on them or ripping a person's skull out of their head and bringing the spine with it? Okay the latter sounds cooler but you get my point! - sdgeek2003

13 Super Smash Bros. has a lot of awesome characters, but the only awesome character in Mortal Kombat is Reptile

This is totally wrong. Characters like: Sub zero, Raiden, Johhny cage, and scorpion are cool. - nintendofan126

14 No gory violence at the end of each match
15 Cloud Strife Cloud Strife

Ryu, Mega Man, Cloud, Little Mac, Pac-man and Solid Snake are all such good characters. - SunGoku

16 No Jumpscare When Buying Things

Me; yay trophies AAAHG JUMPSCARE A

17 There's Master Hand
18 Mortal Kombat is only liked for violence while Smash is actually fun

People only like the Mortal Kombat series because it's violent. The whole video game rating system was created because of how violent the first Mortal Kombat was and these days that amount of violence is a joke. People didn't like DC vs Mortal Kombat because it wasn't violent and now it's considered a bad game since it lacks one thing that is not needed to make a game good, just look at the Super Mario Bros. games. DC vs MK is Mortal Kombat without makeup. - SunGoku

19 Smash Bros. can have Touhou girls as playable characters with modding

Super Mario, Pokemon and Touhou altogether in a Smash Bros. game makes it super awesome
