Because he steals the spotlight from there favorite characters I'm guessing. Personally I like Taven.

Taven is ok. Daegon is useless though. Daegon and Mavado should've been one character. Like Kano and all his many copies.

I like Daegon more than Taven. His voice actor sounded like Lex Luthor and Mavado is a terrible character.

I like Taven and Daegon too.
I wonder if Taven will ever show up in the new timeline at all, otherwise he'll be living under a rock for quite some time. tongue

I dont like the whole Armageddon storyline because it just seems to make the previous games utterly pointless.

Two demi god brothers who control the fate of the entire MK verse of characters with their firespawn chum.

I like Daegon's design but thats it.

And Taven was a colossal cunt anyway. I mean giant, gaping, flapping vagina of a cunt.

There's no rule that says Armageddon HAD to end the MK universe.

If they hadn't made MK9 a reboot and Taven's ending had been canon, then nothing would've been resolved or destroyed. They could've simply fought a war, killed off some characters, and then finished it the way they finish every other game and moved the fuck on to the next thing.

Daegon would be left still around as Red Dragon leader (assuming Caro hadn't killed the entire clan) or perhaps imprisoned in the Netherealm by Argus and Delia since it turned out they faked their deaths, and Taven could continue on as the new protector-god of Edenia.

I like Taven, as a character he's the quintessential anti-hero, totally unwilling at first but motivated by what's right to complete the quest despite everything he'd been through; e.g. both his brothers hated him, his parents were (supposedly) dead, his dragon friends suffered, etc.
I liked the tattoo design and have been considering it for myself, and i like the contrast between him and the protagonist of the previous game, willing-to-please hero-type Shujinko.

As for his ending, i believe it IS canon; he defeated Blaze atop the pyramid, Blaze's corruption by Onaga's holy men meant that power spewed through Taven's armour, making the kombatants more powerful than ever, and that's when Shao Kahn took advantage of the situation and, at his most powerful, defeated everyone else leading to the intro to MK9.
