Boon Polls Most Missed Women in Mortal Kombat X

Hot on the heels of an all male poll [full story]; Mortal Kombat X Creative Director Ed Boon has asked fans which female kombatant they missed most from the best selling tenth installment.

The four character Twitter poll produced a closer race between options, with 1,334 more votes registered than the initial query. Jade was an unsurprising winner with 37%, often commanding a highly motivated cult following. 2011 DLC fighter Skarlet was a more surprising second with 27% of the vote.

Like the first poll; the selection of lady fighters offers a mix of the overlooked and truly absent. Sindel (24%) appears prominently in the Mortal Kombat X story mode as a non-playable character, also featured as an eventual Invasion Boss. Sheeva (12%) and Skarlet didn't return in any notable game capacity.

Jade was inexplicably killed off between games - the only revenant from Mortal Kombat (2011) to not appear in the sequel. Kitana pays homage to the fallen Jade with her Mournful variation in MKX. Jade also makes a brief cameo appearance in Revenant Kitana's arcade ending [below].

Sheeva, Sindel and Skarlet are my three favourite females in that order. Would have definitely dropped Sonya, Cassie and Jacqui in favour of them.

Will honestly never understand the hatred Sheeva gets, the first playable Shokan still rules.

This. I guess its because shes "ewwwww muscle girl." I'd bonk 1998-2001 era Chyna. I said it.

Voted for Sheeva. To be honest I'm surprised she made it to double digits.

Love all the options on the list.

Jade in my mind, while most favourite, cant appear in MKX. Kitana and Tanya (Bo Rai and Jin too) all have staff based styles. Unless its a character skin for Kitana

Sindel and Skarlet are cool beans.

Strange.

I rarely saw any Sindels in MK9s online, but as rare as that was, I saw even fewer Skarlets. I remember people griping that she was too hard to use/too technical and her usage dropped SHARPLY the first week after her release. I wouldn't expect a character that had such a debut to score so high.

Poor Sheeva, though. I hope she's in MK11 with some plot relevance. Out of the 20 years or so she's been in the franchise, the most development she's ever got was in some side comic book. I'd like to see her with more of an angle in Kotal's Outworld.

In mk3 arcade sheeva was the lowest tier. Plus, she missed some home console versions.
She was a transgendered Goro, really nothing special about her story and moves either. Her skin off Fatality was cool as hell, though.

No surprise she got bad reception, she is easily the worst 2d era character, even worse than Stryker, which is one of my favourites.

Sheeva was pretty bad ass in MK9 and one of my favorite characters to use. Seems like they wanted to develop her further in the comic book, but I don't consider anything from the comic book to be even remotely relevant, so who knows what Sheeva's future holds.

Not surprising Jade won this, but Skarlet caught up quick.

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

there is a reason he listed MK9 characters only, do you not see the reason why? seriously. they're going to save those non-mk9 characters for the next game so more effort will be put into them instead of being half-assed

Sucks that Sheeva didn't get enough votes. I think she deserves better.

Growing up, most people hated Sheeva cause she's "ugly".

Y'know, cause fuckability > gameplay/story/common sense/etc...

Li Mei should be on that list, she was playable in 3 MK games and a npc in 1.....I wouldn't exactly consider that to be a "unpopular character".

Fuckability is the most importing thing. I want Scorpion to look at me in my face with his skulleyes as he fucks me in my fiction.

Then the weird thing was that of all the girls in MK Armageddon - Sheeva generally was seen as having the nicest face.

I do think that one of the problems Sheeva had/has is that her costumes are sling unikinis. Like. I seem to remember people liking her more in her Armageddon costume. So maybe she needs a decent costume? (Same thing happened with Reiko.)

I'd rather have old wierdos than new human people. Drahmin isn't an old wierdo. Moloch is.

Never got on with Li Mei. She was just dull in my mind.

Sareena and Frost are cool.

Again, Sheeva was a failure for the same reason as Kintaro: a dirty Goro rip off. Her gameplay wasn't that good either. Fuckability has nothing to do.

I doubt sex appeal mattered. Sheeva was made to be a playable version of Goro, one of the series icons who was monstrous and intimidating.

But Sheeva had Goro's moves with none of his charisma. She had a Audrey II voice, bled green blood for no reason, and she wore a big ol' red thong. She was monstrous, but in more of a sideshow freak kind of way. Part of the problem was MK3's schlocky tone but a lot of it was just how awkward her design was.

Anyway, I want Sindel. Not that I'm a huge fan, but of these four she and Skarlet have the most unique movesets, and Sindel never really got the chance to be fleshed out.

Less a thong, more a banana hammock. The green blood was stupid...the cyborgs bleeding blue/black I understood, but introduction of multi-colored blood was a bit annoying in MK3. I couldn't figure why Sheeva bled green. I still find it odd that Reptile bleeds green.

I like Sheeva in MK3 because of her reach...her roundhouse was able to connect from further away than any other character, which made it good for defensive play.

Ultimately, Jade was probably the biggest in terms of sex appeal. She was black or dark hispanic which made the green color contrast nicely against her skin, and the proportions helped of course. then there was that amazing long hair, too. Overall, she was a bad ass to boot. Dominated in UMK3, and was a top fighter in MK9. She needs to be more than just Kitana's sidekick. I was wondering if that whole "warrior goddess" ending she had would somehow come into play.

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

RE: Boon Polls Most Missed Women in Mortal Kombat X

Curious why Boon's polling fans. Is it for a KP3 or future reference or just for funsies (or boonsies, I guess)? I also tend to wonder why they're all from MK9. I mean, I guess if they wanted to do an MK9 pack and reuse those assets from MK9, but that seems awfully weak considering that they'd presumably charge money for those characters.

But if they were just going to reimagine those characters anyways, why not include Fujin, Sareena, Li Mei, Reiko and a few other post-trilogy characters as options? Or are they worried they won't sell well, so they stick to trilogy characters (and Skarlet??).

Either way, I hope it amounts to something for MKX. If we get Jade, Skarlet, Noob and Rain out of it, I'd be happy, even if I prefer Baraka or Kabal to Rain.

As for Sheeva, she falls in to that terrible MK3 character design realm for me. Love Kabal, but really disliked how they made most of the other characters look. It all looked way too hokey and costume-y to me. Much more so than any MK game before or since. So for me, she has that going against her.

But as far as MK3 went, I actually enjoyed using her. I think the main thing she had going against her was the fact that Goro and Kintaro were sub bosses. They were designed to be overpowered. It's part of what made them so imposing.

Then it was like "now you get s Goro of your own!" Only she's smaller, she's not overpowered, and she doesn't really have a lot that you haven't seen already from those bigger, cooler characters. Goro Light doesn't really get me psyched. Plus, and maybe this is just me, but I never really dug her story and the whole centaur rivalry.

So yeah, as a kind of novelty, she was fine for one game. But to bring her back, I do think that they should completely overhaul her design, give her a more interesting story and function and really try and make some more fun and interesting moves. MK9 and the comic were solid steps for her, but I still see a lot more potential and a much better character than they've shown in Sheeva so far.
