This was probably the difficult vote I did. Kitana has been my favorite character since MK 2, and Cassie became my new favorite character in MK X. Some fans hate Cassie personality cause they say she is too obnoxious, well look who her father is lol. Kitana on the other hand is a classic, and I agree her gameplay is not as strong as it used to be. But oh well I voted for Kitana

Well......GG Reptile.

I'm voting for Reptile. I know Scorpion will more than likely take this round, but Reptile was a childhood favorite of mine until Cyrax came along.

Voted Reptile because he is and forever will be my favorite "ninja" of the series. Scorpion is also a really cool character to me too no matter how controversial he is. His involvement in the comic and the Hanzo skin are great and its something I've always wanted to see implemented in the games.

I see him winning this round, but I also wouldn't be surprised once the Scorpion hate votes start rolling in.

Shao Kahn did nothing wrong

Scorpion, because as I said before, Reptile is just a punching bag at this point.

I know Scorpion is seen as tired to some people, but that doesn't change how heavily involved he is to the MK lore. The Scorpion/Sub-Zero plot is the biggest sub-plot of the franchise, and because of his iconic status he has never had a game where he meant nothing (except MK9 maybe, because it was a spark notes version of MK1-3). He has had multiple great designs that have been the face of the series for years. To a majority of MK players he is the biggest badass of the series, and will continue to be until the last MK game.

Reptile has one of the best designs of the series. He was one of the first ninjas to transcend the palette swap. They experiment with his look constantly and while it doesn't always pay off, it's appreciated. Since, both of these guys have been in so many games, their gameplay has been all over the place. However, his height of relevance was getting body snatched by Onaga. He hasn't moved past the "to save my race, I serve this guy."

You can argue Scorpion doesn't move past "Angry! Vengence!," but his story moves and advances unlike Reptile's. Scorpion matters in MKX, Reptile kinda doesn't. Scorpion gets my vote.

I voted Reptile. Always enjoyed his story more even though it's not been great the last two games. I've also loved his diverse designs throughout the years and enjoy his moves and fatalities for the most part.

Scorpion.

Never cared much for Reptile until MK2011 where I thought his gameplay was fun and I finally started liking the character. Then they ruined him for me in MKX. Really dislike what they did with his variations and I'm not crazy about his designs either.

Scorpion, as annoying as he can be, is fun to play as on a regular basis pretty much. His arms are way too buff in MKX though, visually disgusting.

They have completely ruined Reptile in MKX. In fact, we haven't had a good Reptile since MKT. However, I voted Reptile just because of that epic fight he had against Liu Kang in the movie. One of my favorite movie scenes ever.

In the last game, they made Raiden the one that made inexplicably dumb decisions. In MKX, that crown was transferred to Scorpion. Killing Quan Chi the way he did was beyond idiotic to the point of making me think less of the character as a whole.

I know Reptile's just a punching bag and lackey, but his standard isn't nearly as high as Scorpion's. The latter is arguably the face of the franchise and they made him in to a moron in MKX.

Reptile was the original hidden character, and that fact made him all the more fun to use in MK2, so he'll alway hold that place for me, even if I dislike his devolved look, his variations were garbage in MKX, and he's seemingly forever stuck in lackey / punching bag status.

Reptile's had a few positive moments as far as I'm concerned. Scorpion... Not so much. It took them ten games to move his "grr revenge" plot along and where they moved it was pretty bad as far as I'm concerned, not just from a plot perspective, but from a writing perspective.

I voted for Reptile.

Reptile is utter garbage and has been for the best part of a decade now. His lackey story role is so predictable that it has become rote and in MKX it is no different. His gameplay is low damage combined with unsafe mix-ups with the Slide and Klaw Pounce. His variations are the worst in the game. None of them make a big difference to his moveset. His design is a halfway house between the humanoid and unevolved look which does nothing for me. For me, if Reptile was not in MKX then the game would not suffer as a result.In fact it would not be much difference. He has no relevence at all. Reptile needs improvements in every area from design, story, moveset, fatalities etc etc otherwise he is a persona non grata for the next game.

Scorpion is a better character than Reptile in every facet in my opinion. His storyline is gotten past his revenge plot point to being a normal human again and reforming the Shirai Ryu. Gameplay wise Scorpion is a strong vortex character with very different variations but still retain the vortex. Inferno is the easiest to use and is very flexible since Scorpion can projectile the opponant low, overhead and mid anywhere on the screen, locking them down. Hellfire is very difficult to use since it involves run cancels. If you can master that then it is extremely strong since it has a move for every situation. Ninjustu adds range but Scorpion loses some mix-ups. I think Scorpion's primary is the best he has ever had. Extremely good costume with the Hanzo costume also another favourite. Really interesting to see the evolution in design. His fatalities are also extremely brutal unlike Reptile's. Overall Scorpion's in MKX is one of his most strongest showings. He has strong story progression, great design and solid gameplay which Reptile has none of.

Scorpion.

As much as I loved Reptile in the past (he was my favorite ninja in MK2), he's nothing but a run-of-the-mill lackey,and useless trash fodder that is somehow still alive. He never amounts to anything, and never progresses in story. His body being used as the catalyst to resurrect the Dragon King wasn't even Reptile himself, he was just in the right place at the right time. He's sort of like the Starscream of MK bad guys - he's intimidating, but ultimately useless, fucks everything up, and escapes every time. He's the most expendable character currently alive in the series.
Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

Huh. Much like Sindel vs Jax I'm surprised Reptile is coming out on top.

Besides gameplay which is a bit of a drag in the damage department and I don't really like Noxious Reptile that much, I still think Reptile is a big improvement over MK9:

-He has a voice now and a pretty good one in my opinion, The intros and in match voice clips give him more of a personality than "RAWR" and *Chomp* *Chomp* "HISS" hell he's got an actual name now.

-Rather than serve Kahn or getting stupider and serving Nitara and being a pitiable villain..He's gone somewhere new and serves Kotal out of genuine loyalty and respect rather than "Surely this guy can bring my race back"

-He looks much more detailed and thought out than in MK9

-While he does still job (wasn't really expecting different) He doesn't do it any more than what other characters have to do and he played an important part in Kotal's revolution

-Dino Bones, Tournament, Kraken, Klassic>Reptile's Awful MK9 Primary

And I do like Scorpion finally getting his revenge on Q-Ball with the bonus of having an apprentice in new character Takeda so he can go somewhere after X, but I just like Reptile more.

So yeah big turnaround for Jobber Lizard tongue

Went with Reptile. He isn't that great this time around but I find him to be more fun to play as in any game.
