As a sub-boss, why not include The Predator this time?

If you played "Aliens vs Predator" you'd see how much the Predator character fits MK game.

Predator big scary looks, special moves, and gory kills can easily be a sub-boss, in addition to his original story where he's from Outworld who in general came to Earthrealm to get rid of humans...so he can be Shao Khan's sub-boss and the story behind it will be a mystery that the MK team will reveal in the game.

I'm a big predator fan, but there is no way I would ever want to see a predator in MK, predator in the MK universe would never make since no matter how many ways it was told.

RE: As a sub-boss, why not include The Predator this time?

I don't even want guest characters in the normal roster, so having one as a sub-boss doesn't work for me at all.

And since the cyborg faces somewhat resemble predator's mask, it would almost feel redundant having a predator be playable. It would be like having Bruce Lee as a guest character in MK1.

Why not?? The DC Universe was a part of MK. If the Predator will make it he'll completely fit so there'll be no need to change anything in MK roots.

Remember that the Predator is BIG and not like the size of any MK character. Also no need for his mask, in his above pic link you can see him without the mask and he's scary as hell. Even if he has the mask, whats wrong with it? Instead, this is so MK and he has his unique mask for sure that can be destroyed during the fight.

Although Predator is a better choice then Vader or Spawn, there's just something about guest characters that alters the story atmosphere. It's like the game is reminding me that it itself is a work of fiction, making it impossible for me to suspend belief.

Guest characters just can't work in a serious story. Imagine if you were watching "Platoon" and suddenly Flash Gordon comes out and starts throwing footballs at Tom Berenger. It may be fun to watch, but the dramatic value would plummet at the speed of stupid.

Nothing is impossible these days, the Predator is already in the "Aliens vs Predator" game and merging games or part of them is getting common nowadays.

Also, a lot of people can't handle horror characters in movies so they are not that famous. Finally, the Predator nowadays is a bit old-fashioned even with his latest movies.

In conclusion, it is easier for the Predator to merge with a famous game.

But the Predator story fits MK. He's originally from Outworld and his aim is to defeat Earthrealm mortals. Plus, he's only a monstrous sub-boss like a bodyguard that Shao Khan will use for a while then get rid of him.

Because the company "20th Century Fox" owns the "Alien" franchise AND the "Predator" franchise. I bet you don't know anything about the series do you?! You just only know of that game.
To be able to have the character Predator in the Mortal Kombat game, Warner Bros. (you know, that company that owns the MK Team?) would need permission from 20th Century Fox. And in case you didn't know, 20th Century Fox tried to sue Warner Bros. over a movie a few years ago, like hell they're gonna let Warner Bros. use their property.
Predator in Mortal Kombat will NEVER happen.

This is one of the dumbest ideas for a sub-boss I've ever heard.

Read my above previously edited comments, I added more details for why there's a possibility that the Predator gets involved with MK. I know that both are related to 20th Century Fox but I didn't investigate about "trying" to sue Warner Bros, you know I'm a foreigner and I have other important things in real life to due than following the foreign movies franchise gossips.

I'm the biggest Predator fan you'll ever come by, and seeing two of my favourite franchises merge would be cool. But this seems funny to me and would never happen.

My sub-boss is dumb? I didn't even give an idea you idiot. I'm just saying that this idea is one of the worst. C'mon ... Predator? You could pick Motaro, Kintaro, Goro, but Predator?!

Wow, it's amazing to see the variety of IQs this site.

You have got to be shitting me? What does that have to do with anything? What is a foreigner? This is the Internet! Half the people on here are not from USA. And being a "foreigner" doesn't make it ok to be uninformed. ever heard of a thing called google? educate yourself

And since when is Predator from Outworld? Outworld is a fictional realm from the MK franchise. There, its as simple as that.

I'm sorry but this is just retarded.

RE: As a sub-boss, why not include The Predator this time?

What does my merge opinion has to do with IQ?? It's a merge idea that already happened with DC Universe. So indirectly you mean that MK team IQ is not good too. Don't you?

And I prefer to use Google search for other important things. And outworld is fictional yes but in the end it means someone outside the earth!!!! Concerning seeing Predator movie that lead me to this idea that's wrong, mainly it was the game as I mentioned here.

Anyway, guys I really don't need to hear ur negative thoughts, plz don't reply on my topic cuz I don't care too.

If u have something negative or an advice at least reply in a decent and civilized manner. People like u usually wait for topics that doesn't interest them and waste their time on insulting others, I bet ur negative comments are more than the positive ones on that forum.

Again, don't reply if that bothers you.

Thank youuuuu

You made this thread for opinions didn't you? Well, you're hearing them.

Just because there was MK vs DC doesn't mean the MK team will start looking for other universes to make a vs game with. I never said anything about the MK team's IQ so I have no idea where you got that from.

There, I replied with no negativity.

RE: As a sub-boss, why not include The Predator this time?

No.

No.

No.

...

And more No.

First off, Predator is not from Outworld LOL. He's an alien, from another planet, that hunts other creatures for sport. Humans, Xenomorphs and likely other things. Why would he give two shits about Earth Realm being invaded by Shao Kahn? He wouldn't. He might hunt and take Shao Kahn's skull as a trophy, but he won't, because the idea is lame. Sorry, but it really is. Predator does not fight with martial arts. He shoots things with a shoulder cannon, he uses the burning net, he has the hand claw, and he uses the disc, the trip mines etc.

So no. Bad idea. No. Stupid idea.

Predator should stick to his good movies, his okay crossover games with Aliens (which BTW, I'm assuming you don't know this, but Aliens and Predators have been crossing over for 20 some years now via comic books, games, and movies, it has nothing to do with the franchise dying), and his crappy crossover movies with Aliens, and his awesome crossover comics with Aliens.

Keep Mortal Kombat as Mortal Kombat.

Leave the sci fi monsters to the sci fi monsters.

Seeing two of my favorite franchises clash would turn them both to shit, when they don't make sense together.

Yes, but there's a difference between cheap and insulting negative opinions and the decent and respectful negative ones.

I'm not saying that there will be 100% another merge, I'm proposing/supposing! Meaning why not giving it a chance another time? The title includes "why not"!!

When you say my "idea" is dumb, it means the Predator and its merge are dumb too. Don't you think? Else, be more specific. So u indirectly sounded that the MK first merge idea was not appropriate too.

Thx
