Kabal has a cool look (or at least he did before MK9) but his gameplay has never appealed to me and his story is a clusterfuck. In the old timeline he flip-flopped and was directionless, and in the new he's retconned to be a cop sidekick and gets magical powers for some reason. Weak.

Sonya, on the other hand, has always been solid in terms of gameplay and purpose. She's always been fun to play but she's been consistently great in the last 3 games. Her MK9 appearance was an absolute disaster, but it's good to see they've fixed their mistakes with MKX. She gets my vote.

Really like both but Sonners is Sonners, even if she looks rough this time. I understand they're aged, but the face...Kerry Hoskins, what happened!confused

Voted Kabal, though it was close as Sonya looks good in MKX in her default costume and Covert Ops is fun to watch in high-level play in tourneys, but I really dislike the other two variations. I just generally like Kabal more, he's always been one of the most fun characters to play as and I like his design in all the games he's been in (which is something I definitely can't say for Sonya).

If Kabal was playable in MKX, he would probably get my vote. I have never been a big fan of Sonya, but her gameplay is awesome this time around. I do think most of her outfits are pretty bland, and I love Kabal's hookswords. Sonya pretty much gets my vote over Kabal only because she is in the game. Pre-MKX I would go with Kabal but I am going with Sonya.

Wow, tough call here, as these are two of my favorites.

Sonya has been one of my favorites in each of the last two games. Her Covert Ops variation is awesome. I feel like she's been s bit underrated in this series and might not get the same fan love as other classic characters, but to me, she's been great for a long time.

I will say though that her stories haven't been among the best, so that drops her down a little. At times, she seems stubborn, which tends to get annoying.

As for Kabal, he was the only newcomer in original MK3 that I liked. Love the hook swords and his combo potential, and I feel like he's always among my favorites but he's slipped a bit.

His move list never seems to evolve much and his story never seems to be nearly as cool as his look. As much as I loved him in MK3, I hated him in MKD and was kinda "meh" on him in MK9.

I'll be more than happy with either advancing, but I'm going with Sonya here, much to my own surprise.

This. I didn't mind the former criminal turns into a cop story, but super speed being a residual effect of Shang Tsung's magic? That's a bit weird.

I get most people view this as a popularity contest but it should be looked at as who will win in a deathmatch? Do people really think li mei would defeat kotal kahn, or rain defeat shao Kahn? lmao that's dumb as shit. Johnny cage is my favorite character and I know He would most likely die against shao, unless his super op green energy turned up. That being said Sonya over kabal, she's a bamf

Kabal without a shadow of a doubt. He's in my top five favorites, he's badass and top tier. I love the personality they gave him in 9 and I hope he'll be back for MK11.

Sonya is boring. A lot better in MKX but I still dont care for her all that much.

Actually, the rules state : Criteria for voting is completely up to you, but as this is an annual event, we recommend focusing primarily on the current versions of characters seen in Mortal Kombat X! [Note: We always suggest voting for characters, rather than against them.]

Some people vote for their favorites or who they hate the least. Others look at who would win in a match. I personally look at their overall importance within the current timeline during MKX and if it's not possible I reflect upon their stories and who has more impact.

I voted Takeda over Reptile because Reptile hasn't evolved much since he debuted while Takeda was a great newcomer with a cool weapon.

I voted Rain over Shao Kahn because Shao Kahn has been watered down a bit in MKX when it was revealed Shinnok orchestrated the events of MK9 and manipulated Kahn while Rain is alive and well in MKX, making the plan to steal the amulet to destroy both Mileena and Kotal.

It's really up tp you how you vote. In the end whoever gets more support for whatever reason wins, and that's the point.

Before MKX I would've said Kabal without even thinking about it. But MKX has really made me like Sonya more than I ever have in franchise history. Her gameplay is so much fun, and her appearance is pretty great. I can take her seriously as someone in the Special Forces. To me, Sonya has never looked or played better.

Plus Sonya is MK's first female, so she's our Chun-Li. I'd vote for her on that reason alone.

I didn't like MKXSonya so much. She could be better, but in general (all MKs) is awesome, and Kerri is the best Sonya!

A grudge match from an untold past! Kobra is a martial artist who lives for the rush of the fight, and the thrill of the kill. His lust for kombat attracted the attention of the Black Dragon, who were impressed by his brutal victories. Erron Black is a gun for hire, wielding an arsenal of weapons accrued over a century of kombat. His aging slowed by sorcery, Black has spent more than a lifetime fighting for others, impressing Kotal Kahn during his war for Outworld's throne. Erron Black thought he may have killed Kobra in a previous encounter. Will he finish the job, or taste payback? Choose their destiny!... FIGHT!

Damn. I missed the last round. Probably, would have went with Kabal due to bias of loving his design. I do think Sonya is a great character for the series, but she never personally struck me like Kabal's design. The Bridgette Wilson factor did almost change my mind.

As for this round... Erron, Kobra has one thing going for him, and that was his connection to the Black Dragon. Erron has that plus a great design and personality.
