Know Your Enemy: The Fighting Variations of Quan Chi

Revealed in a must-see trailer at the beginning of the month - Quan Chi returns to cast a dark spell over Mortal Kombat X in 2015!

The necromancer will command an army of fallen warriors in the story of MKX, but its his sinister sorcery that's delighting across three unique Character Variations. Learn more about the strengths and weaknesses of each gameplay mode as they're illuminated by the developers:



So far we've seen infographics for D'Vorah, Sub-Zero, Raiden & Kano. Each spotlight explains the unique strengths and weaknesses of the Character Variation system - an innovation that reinvents each fighter to create specialist match-ups between individual player styles. Visual tells make variation identification a snap as evidenced when all three are compared!

Sorcerer: The Sorcerer Variation allows Quan Chi to create spell circles within the arenas. Offensive spell circles buff Quan Chi's attacks, increasing his damage output and enhancing special moves, while defensive spell circles weaken opponents. This variation allows for extra chip damage, allowing Quan Chi to quickly end rounds against defensive opponents.

Warlock: Warlock Quan Chi uses his dark portals to create unpredictable attacks and reach, making this Variation excellent for counter zoning and zoning mix ups. When properly timed, Quan Chi can also combine his portals with attacks to create special kombo strings that send his opponent to the Netherrealm and back.

Summoner: In his Summoner Variation, Quan Chi can summon a demonic beast from the Netherrealm to fight by his side. When deployed, Quan Chi's minion brings an additional set of ranged attacks to his already diverse arsenal. [W]hen summoned at the end of kombos, the demonic beast gives Quan Chi additional options for post-kombo setups.

All three Character Variations feature heavily in the Quan Chi reveal trailer, as narrated by Executive Producer Shaun Himmerick. Get the drop on the competition by watching the trailer and be back daily as each variation graphic is revealed!

This might become my main variation for Quan Chi unless he can summon skeletons in his Summoner variation

God dammit now I can't unsee this haha!

And increase chip damage you say? Kill defensive players you say?? Rune trap confirmed but sounds like a more swaggy version. Cannot wait for this game, six months is too far away

RE: Know Your Enemy: The Fighting Variations of Quan Chi

Copy-pasted from the Quan Chi reveal thread:

Calling it now, this will be his least-used variation.

I personally like it better than the other two, but this looks like it'll be a challenge to use. From a practical standpoint, it looks like it essentially reduces him to staying in place (or one step in either direction, depending on the area-of-effect of the circles) slinging special moves. The spell circles look like they have a long startup that any rushdown character will interrupt with ease, so using them naked seems out of the question.

I hope he has some normals or kombos that give him some distance.

The style makes sense for a sorcerer or mage type, but I'm kinda wondering about its effective application. That said, I can't wait to start using it!

Really excited for the Warlock variation. Looks so sick!

Off topic...am I the only one that's rubbed the wrong way by the variations affecting aspects of the costume. Quan Chi for example, I suppose I don't mind the purple tattoos in sorcerer and the bones turning green in warlock, but I hate the red blades in the summoner variation.

There are bigger sacrifices one might be asked to make than going a little mad.

I like that they're doing that to add additional "flavor", but yeah....I do feel that some of the design choices are somewhat jarring. Unhooded D'Vorah. *shudder*

Quan Chi just looks so badass. He looks so menacing, powerful, and very intimidating.

Can't wait to play as him. He's going to be in my top 5 for sure.

Check out that glowing skull in the Warlock variation. I can't wait to find out the story behind it.

It seems to me that Quan Chi has moves from Ermac,Shang Tsung, and Kenshi and it might mean that they aren't in the game. I hope atleast a Ermac returns but only time will tell. I do like Kenshi and Shang Tsung too but Ermac is my main guy.

I will rock you.

I'm guessing that the arms on his back in the Warlock variation belong to the skull on his front.
Can't wait to find out more, he is beyond bad ass!

Really? I guess then those three won't return for a while until the next game right?

I have this feeling after reading that part.

RE: Know Your Enemy: The Fighting Variations of Quan Chi

Which exact moves does Quan have from Ermac, Shang and Kenshi?

I don't see anything in resemblance. Infact, sorcery is far from telekinesis and Quan had the skulls before Shang did.

The only move resemblance I saw was Sindel's flying fireball.

Here's a small gripe: I miss Quan's gigantic skulls that went "RRRAAAARRWARGHARG" while traveling across the screen.

I miss it too, bro. :(
Also, he has Shao Kahn's projectile. Pretty interesting. Shao Kahn and Sindel. King and Queen.
