Worst Mortal Kombat Characters

The Top Ten

1 Mokap

A stupid character who has a dumb ass ending who just does it know how to fight and goes on knowing his life is a complete failure and thinks he is a good fighter and lives life knowing he fights like dumb ass who fights like a girl and can't even have a good life and has freaking balls all over his body and couldn't beat a fly and I'm disappointed at midway. Imagine Ed boon is in his office and a worker comes in and is covered in balls and says " I have a Idea about a new character his name is mokap and he has balls allover him". Ed should've fired his ass right there but didn't and here we are a bunch of pissed of fans. Thanks midway

He's a really funny character to say the least but what good could I say about the idea of introducing him? He really isn't needed in a roster filled with so many great characters. He was a cool one game joke in my opinion. Nothing more. - Johnnyrp666

There really isn't much to say about this guy other than he's simply a terrible idea. He looks stupid, his background is stupid, his name is just plain lazy, he's a terrible character. - DamonRageDevil

He is the most useless and annoying mk character ever. Not to mention weak - Magnolia

2 Meat

What kind of mortal kombat character has one eyeball sticking and is redder than a tomato. He carries a butcher knife around half naked. In mortal kombat4 Easter egg meat looks like a skeleton. In armageddon he was terrible

This shouldn't even be a character.
Lets Cook it!

The most unsuspecting and unnecessary character in mortal kombat history

A personal preference, I like him but he seems like a nuisance

3 Kobra

Lame is the word to describe him, nothing stands out in him. Like somebody else said before me:- he's a cheap imitation of Ken from Street Fighter - ahmedessam

He looks like cheap imitation of Ken from Street Fighter - Magnolia

They should have named him Ken, because that's who he is

Street Fighter called, they want Ken back...

4 Hsu Hao

Just the worst. The creators even hate him so much they kill him off whenever he shows up.

Worst. Character. Ever.

I didn't hate him, but I didn't really like him! Still, there are worse characters.

This guy doesn't look a real Red Dragon member he looks more like one Village People. - egnomac

5 Drahmin

Horrible Look, Terrible Move Set, Awful Fatality, Boring Storyline, Drahmin has it all.

He's awesome

I will
Get drahmin out of mortal kombat.
He is ulgy

I love him :(

6 Darrius

This guy has the most ludicrous fatality in MK history.

(rearranges the opponent's limbs and head onto random parts of the body then observes his "abstract art")

Hmm... HMM.

(kicks the disfigured bleeding corpse down onto the ground)

7 Motaro 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.

I really thought Motaro was awesome in UMK3 (though an annoying boss. ) But then in MKA, they had to remove his centaur legs. It pissed me off.

I really love motaro but when they removed his back legs I just backed off. That was disappointing

He has the most lame fatality ever. He looks pretty tough but all his fatality is just grabbing the fighters head and lifting it up. That's a joke. - Sabbath

There’s nothing wrong with motaro he had a lot of potential but they didn't really do anything with him

8 Jarek

A Kano ripoff, but with two intact eyes and he doesn't even look like the guy from Village People, just boring. His only redeeming quality is his unintentionally funny ending.

An imitation of Kano, and also the 2nd least popular Mortal Kombat character.

I hate him because his and jax's non-canon endings.

IMSOGAY! -Jarek,1997

9 Hotaru

This guy hotaru is the worse

10 Kung Jin

He's automatically making him the worst fighter ever. Jarek is not gay despite some claims, and is a way better design.

There is nothing good about this character. He's a smug jerk who screws everything up. He looks like a dilweed. He's a repackaging of Green Arrow from Netherrealm's previous game "Injustice". His place in MK canon is grating much like his friends Cassie, Jaqui and Takeda. On top of everything else, he's a limp wrist "inclusive" character, made for the sole purpose of needless "diversity". I hate all of the Special Forces brats from MKX, but he takes the cake!

He's konfirmed to be gay, automatically making him the worst character ever made.

The Contenders

11 Mileena 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.

How is Mileena even here; she's the best female character. That rotten trash D'Vorah should be here instead. - PrinceZarbon

Not bad character :(

Why is Mileena on this list? She's one of the best - Sabbath

She gives me the creeps what a evil and ugly character who flirts with her own sister on mortal kombat 9 and she eats humans that is just wrong and discusting

12 Reiko

This guy sucks

Reiko is long years be for general Shao Kahn army. Reiko be in game MK 4, and serial MK Conquest. He is in purple costum, black line round eyes. He is interesting fighter in werry greate style.

He's not bad, just under used
Awesome moveset in MK4 but what the hell was that costume in MKA?

13 D'Vorah D'Vorah

I hate this annoying sniveling swine & they are responsible for killing Mileena, Baraka, & Scorpion... and their only excuse is for the survival of their hive? Someone should just burn them and their lame hive and swarm with it. They deserve all the hate for executing our beloved Mortal Kombat villains who are all better than her. - PrinceZarbon

Wack new gen character

Killed scorpion

This newbie killed THREE klassic Mortal Kombat characters: Baraka, Mileena and now Hanzo Hasashi/Scorpion. I do not hate her as other fans, but seriously, kill the klassic Mortal Kombat characters by a newbie is a heresy.

14 Chameleon

I'm sorry but I like chameleon. He is amazing

Chameleon is actually a good character in my opinion

Man seriously? Who's the funny guy put chameleon in the back? You MAYBE don't realise how cool chameleon is you sandwich sucker

Chameleon is awesome he's all. The ninjas combined

15 Blaze

I don't know why Blaze isn't there yet. Still I wonder what went through the minds of the creators when they thought he could be a decent boss. This one was pretty easy. In terms of gameplay I always hated the big ass creatures. Even worst? He ended up playable. Once a boss is playable in a game when he's so big and so cheap, it just gets much worst in my opinion. - Johnnyrp666

Blaze is just a fireball

The easiest boss ever too slow and weak - Rhapsody

You call this a boss

16 Shujinko

So DUMB and Oh, So Gullible. I wonder how many people want to RIP their ears off after hearing what Shujinko even has to say. - Mattblue66

Shujinko looks like God

A geezer good guy for MK? Oh dear gawd no!

17 Rain

Rain is an amazing character. None of the MK ninjas should even BE here; save all the hate for the stupid characters introduced in MK9, X, & XI like Ferra, D'Vorah, & Kronika. - PrinceZarbon

Why are you hating on Rain for his name and colour, ya half-wits?

The only reason why people hate Rain is that he's purple and his name.

How they came up with Rain? They literally heard the song "purple rain" by Prince

18 Skarlet Skarlet Skarlet is a fictional character featured in the fighting game series Mortal Kombat. She debuted in the 2011 Mortal Kombat game, where she was the only full-fledged newcomer to the game.

Skarlet sucks. Her voice is SO ANNOYING! She shouldn't scream every time she makes a move! This is my cousin's favorite, and I don't know how. She says it's because of the blood, but she doesn't know Nitara. She only seen 9 and 10 characters.

Yet, what happens if you take a red hair like Kira, a cool blood related character like Nitara and mix it up with all the Edenian ladies in terms of clothes? You get something as boring as Skarlet as it seems. But she's not hopeless yet. After all, she's not the only one who's had only one apparition to this day. - Johnnyrp666

What happens if you take a red hair lady (Kira), a really cool blood powered female (Nitara) and all of the Edenian females clothes mixed up together? Nothing too good as it seems. This is what Skarlet ended up as. Unfortunately. - Johnnyrp666

You can't compare her to Kira & Nitara when she appeared in the game earlier, she's the coolest female character in the game after Mileena

19 Kira Kira

Oh God. Kira is by far the worst and the weakest mk character ever - Magnolia

Ugly and weak, she's just copying Sonya and Kano

I hate this character the most. See, Kano is my favorite. I don't like having him turned into a girl. It's funny, because she had Kano's colors, Sonya's face, and Nitara's hair. Tell NetherRealm Studios, was she a good idea?

Another crap newbie from Deception

20 Ferra

This is the one annoying character who is completely invulnerable to getting hit and would love nothing more than to do fatality to them at repeat as they are my least favorite not just as new addition but also in the whole franchise. - PrinceZarbon

21 Onaga Onaga

Onaga is boss in

He takes over Reptile's body, and manipulates it to become an OP boss that is annoying and not interesting whatsoever! He SHOULD at least be in the top 3.

thinks he is tough and reptile turned to him

I agree. Onaga was very annoying boss and not scary at all. He was big but not that strong nor powerful - Alexandr

22 Liu Kang 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.

No Liu Lang is a great character. Some things on this list I truly don't like nor agree on and this is one

Liu Kang is the best player and the strongest, fastest and he is really powerful I don't now y you say he suck and is weak probably you just hate Chinese people he can kill any body that gets in his way!

Fudge all you idiots liu kang is one of the best players in mortal kombat you are just trying to get a life other then jacking off.

He's a backstabber

23 Bo' Rai Cho

Bo' Rai Cho is a joke. He has awful finishing moves. Somehow, he taught Liu Kang and other Kombatants. I ask myself everyday, 'How the hell did he even get in Kombat Pack 2...? '

This guy never had any business being in any mk game. - Sabbath

Dude this guy is like mortal kombat peter griffin

If he wasn't so oriented on barfing and farting, he's pretty important if you ask me, but he still irks me.

24 Kung Lao Kung Lao

First of all I wanna let those who hate kung lao know something. He is a great fighter, one of my favorites. He can kick you back to where you come from. He is great. So hat my comment if you want. I don't give a dime

Kung Lao is home to big trading post and frend Siro, Taja. And we are help to from and lightning god Raiden. Kung Lao is long body and his good kung-fu, thinking good kung-fu, Kung Lao winning turnament Mortal Kombat. Kung Lao is defeat to sorcer Shang Tsung. Sorcer is lost and Kung Lao defeat many good fighter and sorcerer.

Kung Lao is monk, and master kung fu of Game MK2 and MK3, great fatality his push up to HAT. Great rol Kung Lao to serial MK Conquest is white t-shirt and rusty throusers. Great comparison to Kung Lao and rusty A.N.T.

25 Quan Chi 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.

First of all, Reptile, Sheeva and Liu Kang are very cool. Only idiots can vote for them. This guy (Quan Chi) is trash. Just look at his fatality in Deadly Alliance - real shame for mk! - Magnolia

He fights dirty no to mention he helps shang tsung to beat liu kang. I also hate when he lies to scorpion about his family. This wanabe demon who was once oni is a douche.

Quan Chi is like the New England Patriots of Mortal Kombat...

Cheater

He made sub-zero die...

26 Zombie Liu Kang

just a zombie form of liu kang and sucks

Why does he have chains if everything else is the same? Chains don't make his horrible character any better.

Is Liu Kang lose in Shang Tsung is his element half past brother chen.

What the hell is wrong with u people? Zombie Liu Kang is probably the most wanted skin in MKX right now, his movesets are also easy to remember! This guy is a legend

27 Kurtis Stryker

Everyone else has supernatural abilities and it just makes him much weaker compared to the others

The canary in the coal mine for the mortal kombat franchise, leading to its death at MK4...until MK9 came out.
This idiot looks like steve guttenberg dressed in a backward hat like a 12 year old and LA Gear jazzecise gear. Competely dull character and moveset.
The total embodiment of all that stupid 'dope fresh urban' pandering crap that made Rocky V so cringey and dated as soon as it came out.

His character is so boring... The fact that the game developers focused on making him use his pistol was just plain lazy and cheap.. I understand he needs a ranged attack but I feel that players rely too heavily on the pistol while playing as Stryker. They should focus on his police/swat training using more submission moves, tackles, a riot shield maybe, taser, pepper spray for a short term distraction attack like Sonya's kiss. Something that stays true to police/military training

And I quote from GCN "He is as generic as it gets. In a series full of sorcerers, ninjas, demons, cyborgs, princesses, and shaolin monks, we get Stryker. At least Jax, Sonya, and Kano have something special about them." All of that, is the total truth.

28 Alien

Alien is beast he has awesome fatalities so you should shush up and get the Heck used to it

Xenomorphs have acid blood, WHY DIDN'T THEY GIVE HIM ACID BLOOD?!

29 Predator 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.
30 Shinnok Shinnok Shinnok is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. First appearing as the non-playable boss of the 1997 side-scrolling action-adventure game Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, he made his selectable debut in the three-dimensional fighting title Mortal Kombat 4 the same year. ...read more.

Shinnok seems like he's in high school, even though he looks to be over millions of years old. But he's dramatic, and back hands people. I just hate him. He is awful. He's also slow when you're playing as him. Again, I hate him.

the most irritating mk boss ever. Even Onaga is much better than him - Magnolia

Shinnok is a another lying douche like quan chi I hate those two so much because there just awful

Generic personality, lame design, and bland fatalities

31 Kai

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar combined with Mario creates this Shaolin Monk. - Mattblue66

Kai is monk in game MK 4, red and black jacket and in body me white tiger band. Kai is master fight and push up of hand great fireball.

32 Sheeva

This horrible abomination break the mortal kombat female rules. Mileena is ugly only in his face, but had 2 things to distract. Sheeva is horrible. Is the most pathetic female character

She is a stupid ass charactor and also she is very cheap with her stomp attack and her xray is pathetic. Just about everything about her is horrible and horrendous. And ugly.

Most annoying mk character ever

She brings nothing to the game. How is she not top five?

33 Shao Kahn 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.

Well, I don't hate him. But I'm kind of tired of hearing about him particularly. I also think it deserves it more than some characters in the list above. Having this big bad guy playable in MKD and MKA kind of made me lose the respect I had for the dude. Most of all, I wonder how someone can ever see him as a hard boss to defeat other than in terms of the damage he inflicts. Since the ways to beat him easily are so numerous. - Johnnyrp666

KHAAANN!
Couldn't resist...

Anyway, the only reason people would hate him is because sometimes he repeats attacks multiple times, gets a little annoying. But other than that, he is fine. AWESOME voice, AWESOME character, AWESOME set of moves. Very good character. Plus, to counter his occasional noob-ness, he will taunt you, allowing you to damage him. This really levels the plain field when fighting Shao Kahn. Ridiculously cool character.

Glad he wasn't in mk X. He's always the villain.

So annoying in MK9

34 Goro 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.

Goro? Is This A Joke... Goro is AWESOME!

A strong ass character like goro should not be on this list

Are you kidding me? Goro rocks! - LucyHeartfilia

Goro is to be guard cell to Shaka, today is general army out world, frend to sorcerer Shang Tsung and 4 hand werry old hundred years dragon prince.

35 Frost

She should definitely be in the top 5. One thing the game did not need was a female Sub-Zero. For crying out loud, she looks like Anne Heche with blue hair!

Shes just copying subzero and she has stupid hits and she's ugly

I hate this character. we don't need a girl sub-zero. Sub-Zero is a bad ass, don't ruin that, Frost.

36 Sonya Blade 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.

They only put her in this list cause they are jealous of her seXiness

Sonya blade is the best fighter ever in all mortal kombat series.. My top one all times

Ha! I get the joke!...wait its not a joke?

Sonya Blade is wash woman in green costum fighter, of game MK1, and MK4. Sonya Blade is in film MK1, and MK2. In game MK4 Sonya me great violet magy and fatality deadly violet kiss. Sonya Blade is great Mortal Kombat woman warrior.

37 Nitara

Nitara is a very odd looking charachter (but not as odd as Drahmin). People might even have her as their worst charachter! All I have left to say is IF you think Nitara is a preety good mk charachter, you S-U-C-K!

she is stupid and I don't like how she looks

38 Khameleon

just a female version of chameleon

Just another Saurian? Say she wasn't developped that much along the years but with Reptile and Chameleon (Male) already in this roster, did the Wii needed to have her introduced more than any other c or d list character? Doubt it.

39 Jacqui Briggs
40 Reptile Reptile Reptile is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created for Midway Games by Ed Boon and John Tobias.

Whoever added Reptile to the list is an idiot... he's the best MK character along with Scorpion & Sub-Zero. - PrinceZarbon

Why is he on this list? NO! Reptile is awesome!

He's pretty ugly but, he's pretty hard to defeat

Reptile is awesome!
Lizard dude that can turn invisible and spitts acid stuff from his mouth!
Why is he even here on this list!

41 Sindel Sindel Sindel is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. She made her debut in Mortal Kombat 3 as the mother of Princess Kitana and the unwilling wife of the evil emperor Shao Kahn.

Sindel is Queen round Edenia and she is mather Kitana princess. Sindel is long hair and purple jacket magician woman. In game MK3 Sindel have good fatality destruction roal.

Sindel is Edenia woman in purple jacket, long hair good style fight kung fu and magy. In MK3 is super magy in kiss and fatalities.

Sindel is magic woman, in Edenia, she is master fight and spell. Sindel have in purple costum, white hair and big kiss. Sindel his be mather to beautifull girl Edenian princess Kitana. Of course, Sindel is oldest Queen. Film MK2 and game MK3. Ideal woman to vote.

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

This guy sucks he has no metal arms in mortal kombat 2 but then why change him if he's has no metal arms in two but in ultimate mortal kombat 3 he has metal arms in ultimate mortal kombat 3 you could never do anything with this retard dash punch sucked gotcha grab really sucked and in deception he has a gun which didn't help jax at all. Its kind of a black version of stryker.

Start Jax is in game MK2, not me hand metal. Only purple and bracelet trousers and werry great fighter. He is 2 started to film MK2, started metal in the hand. Jax is friend fight woman Sonya Blade. Jax in game MK3 and MK4, and many years games and films.

Jax is have good trick and fatality to MK4, fatality his metal hand destrustion to opponent. Jax is good film to MK2 and super Jax in game MK2 and MK3. Jax is strong fighter, good style and metal weapon to hands.

Lame ass character. Nothing exciting about him.

43 Cyrax Cyrax Cyrax is a player character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created for Midway Games by Ed Boon and John Tobias.

He may Look like C-3PO or scorpion, but he is still one of my favorite characters, along with Blaze, Scorpion and Kintaro - Mattblue66

He is so good I don't care if you say u suck or dumb weirdo he is better than his horrible counter parts sector and smoke his fatalities are kick butt such as helicopter and as I said I don't care what you guys say

Cyrax was one of the best characters in MK3 unlike his crappy counterpart Sektor, He had some of the best Combos in the game and also one of the best Fatalities (the Helicopter) all in all I really have nothing bad to say about him, Great specials Great combos and Great Fatalities. What more can you ask, Cyrax Rocks! M/

This character is absolute trash! There is really no point in even having him because all de does for his special attack is throw some sort of cyber net. It is not effective and its stupid.
