MKX: Tremor Fan Petition Reaches Milestone

Update: Fans will be pleased to know Tremor will join the game as part of The Kombat Pack. The DLC fighter was revealed in a trailer along with Tanya in March, 2015.

The nebulous world of the fan petition is far from an exact science, often ranging from the absurd, to the unlikely. Change.org hosts the good and the bad indiscriminately, offering a free platform to collect e-signatures for just about anything. The distinction of supporters is dubious, but every now and then a petition garners so much interest it stands out from the crowd. Such is the case with Make Tremor A Playable Kombatant in Mortal Kombat X.

The petition has freshly counted more than 4,000 supporters, with more arriving each day. Even taking into account inflated numbers supplied by dummy posts and spoof votes, that's an impressive figure for a character whose existence dwells in spin-off obscurity, trivia, and fan-fiction.

Tremor first officially appeared in the ill fated 2000 third-person shooter: Mortal Kombat: Special Forces. He was given an unlikely reprieve in 2012 -- as featured by Mortal Kombat Online -- finding his way into PlayStation Vita versions of Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition.

Fans in the Twittersphere will have become aware of the campaign through the tireless dedication of @TremorBD and the FeelTheTremor hashtag. His efforts as petition founder supporter have also been shared by various NetherRealm Studios staff, including Executive Producer Shaun Himmerick, and beleaguered series co-creator/notorious Special Forces denier: Ed Boon.

So, why Tremor?... In their petition outline, [@mk10news & @mk102015] make the case, "Tremor would make a good addition to Mortal Kombat X's roster due to the fact he has a unique relationship with the Black Dragon and the Lin Kuei, the latter of which he was rumored to abandon, the first Lin Kuei ninja to do so and live."

As a burly bruiser with a ground pound special among his most prominent weapons, he made a convincing counterpart warrior for Jax, when finally appearing. Fan-fiction has expanded on Special Forces to reimagine him as an elementally based earth warrior -- a valid option to embellish an incomplete character visually, and functionally. The thought of a modern grappler in MK, also attractive. [See; Bane (Injustice)]


Popular Tremor Fan Design by Artist jaggudada.

When Mortal Kombat Online discussed the character with series co-creator John Tobias, he offered a tantalizing tease of what might have been, "I do remember having big plans for Tremor, but when I conceived him, he wasn't a member of the Black Dragon. He was a Lin Kuei hired as muscle by a mad man who was trying to open a gateway between Earth and Outworld."

What ever the outcome, it's clear fans are eager to see what the developer could do with these basic ideas. The characters of Special Forces may have been condemned to star in an unimpressive, troubled project, but their existence has helped flesh out the criminal underbelly of the Black Dragon clan, and added to the mystique of the sprawling fictional universe. With MKSF sub-bosses Jarek & Tasia showing up in the comics, and fan created costumes confirmed for DLC - now seems as good a time as any to make the leap!

People in NRS have tweeted and RT'd about this petition a ton. I think he has a large chance of being DLC if we get more characters than the kombat pack.

And they're gonna sell like 4 000 copies. Is it worth the efforts?

There are only three MK characters that I genuinely despise. Tremor is one of them.

I have to say, as ridiculous as these petitions are, especially for Tremor who looked terrible and has been such a minor character, that fanart is awesome. Replace the ninja mask with a hideous monstrous face and NRS should have another character idea!! That's the only character I'm missing, a big monster type.

#TREMORCONFIRMED

Nah, in all seriousness though, considering character variations and how generous NRS is with Skins I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up in some form.

He was a cameo in the Vita version of MK2011 right?

RE: MKX: Tremor Fan Petition Reaches Milestone

That fake Tremor design is nice. I'm not against bringing him back, but I doubt so many would be clamoring for him if it wasn't for his choice of attire. Where are the requests for the other MK:SF bosses, like Tasia and No-Face, after all?

One thing that's funny about the fake design is how inhuman he looks. I find it funny because here we have a ninja that so far, is human, but some people have suggested making him a non-human creature, like a golem. And yet, there are also requests to make Reptile look human again. I thought the irony was worth pointing out.

I still stand by my idea of making Tremor and the Earth Elemental one and the same. Screw Fujin, I want the Earth God!

RE: MKX: Tremor Fan Petition Reaches Milestone

I have never been a huge fan of the guy but I will admit that if NRS ever used him and took the "earth elemental/earth bending route with him he could be awesome, its a power that hasn't been used much in MK, and IIRC not even once in a main series game.

He could summon pillars that tank projectiles, raise close, mid, and far ground spikes, raise the ground to enclose the opponents legs allowing for a free hit, you could probably make a teleport with it, he could also have a parry like Cyber SZ did, except he would turn him self to stone instead of ice, he could a variation that gives him the ability to create a rock armor, which increases his defense and also makes it so he cant be launched or knocked down for a while, a rock slide/charge attack, he could create rock/stone weapons, launch projectiles, there is a ton you can do with it.

I'm in the minority, but I like Tremor. I think he is way more interesting(or has the potential to be) than a lot of the 'main stream' characters. I didn't sign the petition, but I would love to have Tremor, especially that design.

As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "I" in meat pie. Anagram of meat is team... I don't know what he's talking about.

@TremorBD really is working hard. I tweeted "#FeelTheTremor" and he immediately tweeted me personally to support the cause and sign the petition. Mad props dude. LoL

Tremor is the Skarlet of MKX, rising from obscurity to fan demand or str8 hate. If NRS does make him as an EarthBender like everyone wants, he could possibly become my new favorite character. LoL. The Last Airbender is my 2nd favorite franchise behind MortaL Kombat.

Mad Props to MINION, The SIG Sovereign!

Signed it just because. Every MK character, big or small, deserves their due.

I just signed it as well, I may not be a huge fan of the guy yet but I have nothing against him being in either, and since they have gotten this many signatures I might as well contribute lol

At this point it look like he will be in. Most likely DLC though. This sort of feel like Rain all over again during the MK9 days. Where Boon and other NRS employees were all in on the trolling. Then bam Rain is announce.

RE: MKX: Tremor Fan Petition Reaches Milestone

It's hilarious how fanboys are bitching their hearts out about all the MK9 characters in the new game while the post-MK4 bunch continues to be nothing short of Satanic, and yet they're still hanging on to useless garbage like Tremor and fucking Zebron. Maybe I'm missing something.

Also, how is 4,000 a "milestone" in any way?
