For me Kano he is so brutal and loved him in the original movie, a close second for me would have to be johny cage who is a loveable smartass.

Deffinately Reptile.  I don't know what it is about him, but i just love how he does all of his moves.

I think UMK3 Sub Zero is probably the most fun to play even though I prefer his masked look. Also, pretty much the only character from the 3D MKs I would like to see again would be Havik, he had some great moves.

I'm not a big fan of Mortal Kombat, but my choice is always Sub-Zero. I suck at the game, but I'm surprised Jeff was so drawn to the upcoming MK vs DC.

I would have to go with Subzero. He moves always felt pretty fluid to me and the ice attacks are just sweet.

When I was a lot younger I was always into Sub-Zero, basically because my brother called dibs on Scorpion, and I refused, as a child would, to like the same character as my brother.

Now I think Scorpion is pretty rad though, especially in MK3.

I have to say Scorpion, but I haven't played any of the newer games, so that might change.

I always loved scorpion.

#9 Posted by Creciente (162 posts) -

Sonya for me.

#10 Posted by NihonTiger (73 posts) -

Sub-Zero or Smoke.

#11 Posted by GiantGUS (434 posts) -

The younger Sub-Zero (the one that got the scar after MK2).

But I do think that the only character that was well portrayed in the movie was Kano.

I'm pretty bad ass with Shang Tsung, so i'd have to say him.

#13 Posted by BlackWaterCO (1684 posts) -

Jax primarly and Scorpion Secondly

Also a HUGE fan of the cyborg Ninjas (Smoke, Cyrax, Sektor)

Everybody is gonna say SUb zero or Scorp. But I say Smoke.

Sub-zero, I don't know MK2 and Killer Instinct are tied for my favourite fighting game for the SNES. My favourite fighting game of all time is Def Jam: Fight For New York.

I know it's "cliche" but I love Scorpion, he is actually one of my favorite video game characters in general...hes just so bad ass!

#22 Posted by Supertramp (58 posts) -

Reptile. He's wild, I dig him. Also, Noob Saibot.

#23 Posted by SSbabel (1216 posts) -

Damn its a toss up between Sub and Scorp, sorry to hard to choose.

#24 Posted by Shadow2K6 (421 posts) -

Sub Zero.

The flash. Ha

#26 Posted by FordFairlane (112 posts) -

I always dug Smoke, just because I was so stoked when I finally was able to face him in MK.

Stryker also has a place because his Crossing Guard Friendship in UMK3 was awesome.

#27 Edited by AEKtzis (123 posts) -

Scorpion. I know how boring but whatever.

#28 Posted by chronicsmoke (1032 posts) -

I agree saying your favorite is Scorpion has become a cliche, but he is my favorite character in MK
#32 Edited by Andrew (154 posts) -

Kabal, he had a great fatality, swords, and the needs a breathing apparatus!!!


#33 Posted by TheGreatGuero (8882 posts) -

Baraka for me. Reptile would probably be the runner up, but his whole unmasked dinosaur look in MK:DA is making me a bit unsure.

#34 Posted by TekZero (2867 posts) -


But if it has to be one of the "original" characters... Kano.

Reptile has always been a dino (mk2 on)  if I am not mistaken... MK2 reptile spit he pulled off his mask... or did you just not like him being unmasked permanatly??

*slaps forehead* HOW'D I FORGET ABOUT KUNG LAO!!! Kung Lao in MK2 is unstoppable. Along with Reptile.
#41 Posted by wefwefasdf (6730 posts) -

Sub Zero is my favorite. :-)

#42 Posted by TabooTongue (121 posts) -
I used to always say Sub-Zero the V...  and I am still going to have to go with Sub-Zero V, but Sub-Zero 6th is definitely close. As I much prefer fighting as him in UMK3, and his story growth as a character from losing to Scorpion and running from the Lin Kuei to becoming the Grand Master of the Lin Kuei and discovering his families heritage. And not just in a single game but progressively in each.
As far as new characters go I like Darrius. While not all of his tactics for recruitment are great, I don't know how I could like anyone more than a revolutionary.

I've always been a Jax kind of guy. When I was really little, I used to go and play this game with my uncle and all of his friends. When I saw a dude with metal arms, well, I just couldn't resist. I'd use him whenever my uncle and his friends would give me a shot, and then when they were done I'd sit around and play by myself. He's been my main Mortal Kombat man ever since.

#44 Posted by Hairydutchman (1041 posts) -

Sub-Zero and Baraka.

#47 Posted by TheKidNixon (1619 posts) -

Definitely Baraka. Cut some fools up.
