We've seen these infographics for D'Vorah, Sub-Zero & Raiden, offering explanations for the different Character Variations that adapt play styles in Mortal Kombat X. Of course, the images not only describe the strengths and weaknesses via the developers themselves, but also highlight the visual tells that expose each version on sight.

Cutthroat: In the Cutthroat Variation, Kano has the ability to power up his attacks by pounding on his cybernetic heart. His knife fighting skills are also dramatically enhanced, allowing Kano to execute a number of unique kombos and attacks.

Cybernetic: The Cybernetic Variation unleashes Kano's eye laser and grenade arsenal, allowing him to strike from long range, extend kombos, and defend against aerial attacks. Perfect for zoning, Cybernetic allows Kano to attack from virtually any distance.

Commando: The Commando Variation transforms Kano into a highly-skilled grappler. He is able to counter both high and low attacks, forcing opponents to modify their tactics. Commando is all about grounding opponents and dominating them at close range.
