I pick Baraka in this one, but then I know Raiden will win anyway, even if the fight goes good for Baraka right now. I only jinx it.
What did we learn today good kids?
Well that awesome characters like Tanya and Havik are hated, and boring (but powerful) characters like Shinnok can win from classics. Bah.

Havik and Tanya didn't exactly lose by a landslide. If they were truly hated they wouldn't exactly make it to the second round.

Anyway, moving on to this round: It was a close one but I voted Baraka.

Highschool memory, There were these two kids that would say that all the time and all I could ever think about was Baraka from MK.


Also it makes a serious character into a silly one. Who doesn't like silliness in a dark toned game about murder and mayhem

I'd prefer that over what I heard when MK9 came out. Every time Baraka's name was spoken, someone just had to follow it with Obama.
Anywho, I vote Baraka. grin


...Obama.

I can imagine Shinnok ordering a banana coolatta at Dunkin' Donuts with that voice of his

Shinnok: Can I order a limited edition banana coolatta with multi-colored sprinkles resembling my wardrobe rested on top?
Guy at cashier: Alright. Boy you're so dressed up for Comic-Con this year. Great time here in San Diego the locals say
Shinnok: Yes I'm here to invad...I mean VISIT your realm...
Guy at cashier: You mean city
Shinnok: Yes I was going to say that before you interrupted me. Don't let that happen again -_-
Guy at cashier: Sorry sir (brings out coolatta and types in cashier for price)
Guy at cashier: That will be $2.50 sir
(Shinnok throws in 4 gold coins)
Guy at cashier: Ugh sir you do know this is dollars only right?
Shinnok: What? You don't accept gold coins? I should smite you for your insolence!
Guy at cashier: Honestly I would love the coins, but this business is dollars only and my boss will be pretty pissed off if he sees me with them right now. He's very strict on employees' income
Shinnok: It is 3 AM in the morning boy. Do you really think your exhausted "boss" will really be concerned?
(guy looks around in restaurant and sees only empty seats thus stashes gold coins in his pockets)
Shinnok: You've made the right choice mortal! Live well and I might see your puny soul tormented by the Onis in the afterlife
(Shinnok leaves Dunkin' with coolatta chuckling while cashier guy laughing nervously)


You make me want to write fanfic about Shinnok going to Earthrelam for vacation.

Disliking someones opinion on a character sounds like a stupid reason to facepalm for.

I can understand when people dislike character, but some reasons for it are truly baffling.

Yes, hit yourself in the head. Maybe that will help. May I suggest using a mallet though, it has alot more effect and better results. Besides, it's not like you will damage anything in there that hasn't already been damaged.

Thanks, but no thanks. I see how hitting yourself with the hammer have affected you and I don't want to degrade to your level. grin
On the other hand, I can believe that you don't have such experience, since sometimes I suspect nothing could damage your brain or what piece of "assphalt" there is, any further.

Baraka.
I've always liked Raiden, he was the first character I played as in MK1. But Baraka is just alot more fun and interesting.

Oof, Baraka just ran in to a buzz saw. Honestly, after MK9, I don't even feel bad for being a bit of a Baraka apologist in this situation. Raiden hasn't been the most likable character for me lately. I actually wouldn't mind it if he say the next one out.

I voted Baraka but I feel with all the speculation that Raiden is gonna be the one revealed tomorrow he could get a bump in votes, close match either way though.

GO BARAKA!!

This was a tough one. I went with Raiden because he's a God and is a big part of the story. I love Baraka ever since MK2, but he's kinda just a henchman.

I chose Raiden for pretty much the exact same reason.

Raiden may have screwed up in the story mode but Baraka just got his butt waxed mercilessly.

Peoples opinion of them are divided. As opposed to characters like Hsu Hao who almost everyone hates or whoever everyone loves. It becomes apparent in these polls. Scorpion is another.

I get that, but I don't think Kitana and Cyrax are characters people would vote against because they hate them, that's more of Scorpion's department. Plus Havik and Tanya are pretty polarizing as well, so I still believe it's a close match-up.
I have a gut feeling, though, Havik will become a fan-favorite if he's brought back in MKX, he has so much potential.

It happens to pretty much everyone that makes it to the QF and SF rounds tbh. Scorpion definitely gets it the worst though.

If that's the case, I'm sure there's just as much hate on the other side of the match-up. It's not just the icons that get that love-hate relationship.
