I'm gonna say it's Chameleon-just a hunch. Would be pretty sweet, anyway.
What do you think is the 'reward' at Challenge Tower's end?
" I don't think it'd be an unlockable character. Probably like a special video? "Same here. If it was a character....id be pissed. Cause im never gonna beable to play as that guy. I dont have 12 hours a day to practice a video game lol. I hope its something awesome, that i can watch on youtube.
"I dont know, Ed and his team are hyping it up a lot. Maybe it will be MK 1, 2, 3 HD ? "
This seems more plausable seeing how there was a rumor a few months back that the trilogy would be released in HD. If it is that then going through the full 300 challenges is something that is worth taking.
Jackie Chan comes up and says that this is his game now, and then you will have to control every character in the game at the same time and fight Jackie Chan and his fists of fire, he also has three forms.
If you beat him, you unlock him. If you lose, the MK part of the disc will be removed and replaced with "Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire", forcing you to buy a new copy of the game if you want to play more MK.

If this was it... I'd die of happiness. That really would be an awesome reward and definitely worth the difficulty of trying to get.

But I also was thinking of a secret character. He says in this video that you will be able to tell when someone online has unlocked this secret. He also said you can buy your way pass the challenge to beat it, but it costs a lot of money (mk coins). Which makes me think even more so that it might be a character.
The reward is...
Which is kinda a disappointment...unless its like full frontal nudity...but even then, very underwhelming...
Got this information through people who raided the demo file and found pretty much everything including endings and so fourth.
" @xhavoc86: That sounds way too underwhelming for how much they're hyping it up. I mean the achievement list itself had something cool as Cyber Sub-Zero, which is infinitely more cooler than that. Not saying it's BS, but I kind of hope it is. It comes off a bit tacky as well. "I am kind of calling BS
Normally Id say that its bullshit too but if you look at the list of secret achievements the last one is called Best. Alternate. Ever and its suppose to be Mileena's 3rd alternate costume, and which would you think deserves to be the final prize? A cyber version of a character or an alt that the makers of the game consider to be the best ever. Now im not saying that naked Mileena would be the best alt ever but I can guarantee there are lot of teens out there that would, so wouldnt it make sense to make that one the hardest to reach?
Whether havoc was joking or not its entirely possible he's right, hell this could even be one of the reasons that Australia banned it.
I think an alternate costume like that would have shown up in the banning report, wouldn't it? On top of that, Tower Master is the achievement you get for finishing the Challenge Tower, so why would there be another Achievement tied to it? At the very least that seems to indicate that the reward is something else besides that alternate.
At any rate, I question why people are mining the demo stuff anyway. Aren't demos just special builds of the game (in this case one that's 8 weeks old)? Why would they compress the entire game into the demo and then send it out? Unless the demo is gigs of data large, that should send up some red flags; I mean, if I was a dude working on Mortal Kombat, I would know that people were going to data mine and would definitely put a ton a red herrings into it to mess with people. But who knows?
Apparently a MK representative from Brazil confirmed that the data mining information is correct.
It also talks about 360 getting exclusive content rather than an exclusive character as per ps3 (Kratos) and a few other interesting tidbits.
