For years, Mortal Kombat has served as a pillar in the fight game genre. Fun, intense, and sometimes frightening, Mortal Kombat’s unique cast of characters and seriously addicting fighting mechanics make it an all-time great game. With so many amazing characters to choose from, picking the “best” can be nearly impossible, but some do come out on top. Here’s the 5 best Mortal Kombat players.
Mortal Kombat II
One of the first females to appear in the franchise, Mileena is nothing short of terrifying. Despite her savage appearance, thanks to the razor sharp teeth in her sinister smile that literally tear her opponents apart, she’s one of the more graceful fighters in the series, making her even more deadly. Her teleport kick is especially gnarly if used by a skilled player.
4. Liu Kang
As a Shaolin monk, dedicated to save the Earthrealm, Liu Kang is a champion. Some criticize him for being “dull” as he’s one of the original fighters, and a fairly plain one, but Liu Kang’s power should not be overlooked. He has some incredibly finishing moves, and his ability to transform into a dragon makes him that much cooler and more frightening.
Raiden, the God of Thunder, is a fighter who is just as cool with his looks as he is with his moves. Instantly recognizable as a poster-child for the franchise, Raiden’s rich backstory and ability to control thunder and lightning make him a great choice for players of any skill level.
Sub-Zero is an excellent choice for beginners and seasoned pros alike. He’s generally easy to master, and his ability to freeze his opponents makes for some deadly combos. Plus, his backstory and endless feud with Scorpion makes for some epic drama.
Scorpion is one of the most classic Mortal Kombat players, which lands him the number one spot on this list. Iconic and powerful, Scorpion’s versatile move-sets and down-right insane fatalities make him a legendary fighter and a favorite of fans young and old.
