Hmmm if Mileena can get through that armor she might have a chance, but other than that, I'm going to give the match to Hotaru.

I've tried to like Jade for a really long time, I really have, especially since she was a secret character which is always cool, but she's so . . . boring . . . I'm sorry, but she's just Kitana's friend, and does stuff for Kitana or Sindel, and Kitana's kind of boring, too. So far as a character she just doesn't stand up on her own. She has no actual backstory, really, and the fact that I don't even care to know it just shows for me that she's got no use. How would she play a role moving forward, even if the next game was MKD?

Shinnok is/was a boss character. He had a whole story revolve around him. He was an Elder God. He tried to take over Earth. He's not my favorite character in the game but . . . Jade could have never existed and the entire story line of Mortal Kombat would have stayed the same.

What ya said about Jade is just bullshit.

Oh boy, another fucking tournament.

Holy fucking shit, Havik beat Scorpion. Although, it's a shame, since he won't make it past the third round.

Anyway, I vote Mileena, since she's going to win this match faster than Charlie Sheen can say "Winning!" after 3 lines of cocacine.

Like I've said, I genuinely try to like Jade, so if you can elaborate on the interesting/unique/memorable parts of her story line and background, I will gladly listen.

IIRC in MKD Konquest Mode, Mileena was in charge of the army that Baraka led to to Lei Chen that got summarily curbstomped by Hotaru, so he's already won against them.

. . . Speaking of Konquest mode, I've come to believe that a very good indicator that someone hasn't played it is if they say Hotaru is a boring or forgettable character. He's the character that makes you want to throw your television out of the window in Konquest mode. If you hate him in or because of Konquest mode, well, a character that evokes that kind of reaction in a story is a good character.


Play-wise, he's way better in MKA, though. He felt kind of unfinished in MKD, having only two moves really hurt him. But they added a teleport and a long-range punch with cool effects in MKA, and gave him a samurai voice and that helped a lot.

Another very weird thing that I think hurt him is that for some reason a lot of MK fans think his name is exclusively a female name, and that his weapon is an exclusively female weapon. He's not from Earth so it doesn't even matter, but in reality Hotaru, while a female name, is actually more commonly a male name in Japan, and of course the Naginata was the most ubiquitous foot soldier and Samurai weapon in Japan for centuries.

I think it's less about the obvious fact that Mileena is going to win the popularity vote and more just to see what Hotaru can scrape by with.

Like I said, I love Mileena, she's probably in my top ten or top five, but who would be more interesting to have in MK11? In the comics, Raiden has the Orderrealm Kamidogu, and in the MKX kard background that has all the Kamidogu, Orderrealm's is missing. Also, right now both Earthrealm and Outworld are pretty messed up, and I'm sure Raiden would want someone to come help sort everything out. I think Hotaru would make a great boss/sub-boss character, because he does think he's doing what's right, he's a commander of an army, and Orderrealm is in a great position to be inserted into the story line right now.

Plus, imagine his armor in current-gen graphics. It's supposed to be iridescent and now they could actually do that.

I'm fairly confident we'll see him again, and that the polls might tell a different story one day. In this hypothetical future, Mileena will probably still win but by a lot less of a margin.
That being said . . . .

Well, Hsu Hao, on the other hand, he was completely irrelevant to the plot. He was only made for the sake of there to be another Red Dragon member. In other words, he was merely Mavado's lapdog. A disgusting mistake is what that character is. He never should have been made.

But if this is a sexy contest, you clearly have not seen Hotaru's ass

Fireflies are, in fact, beetles with glowing asses.

Good, I've always wanted to ask someone with that opinion - and I do respect that opinion, but I've always wondered . . . what about characters like, hmm . . . Jarek? Kai? Kobra? Drahmin? Hsu Hao? Reiko? Meat? Moloch? Mokap? Daegon? Chameleon?

"Personally, I think Kabal was by far the best thing to come out of that spandex-fest known as MK3. Meanwhile Havik, while looking cool, has some of the most ridiculous looking moves of any character in this franchise and he's been in all of two games. Also, his story is basically that he's a wild card. That's it. Sure, the idea is cool and he has tons of unrealized potential, especially if we're counting the comic, but even then..."


I love Kabal to bits. He is my all-time favorite character in this or probably any video game. But for ridiculous moves in the MK world, NOTHING beats his "Nomad's Touch" from Deception. A tractor beam that slams him face first into his opponent so they BOTH fall over? WOW, was the dev team out of ideas. "Gee, I wear a delicate respiratory mask that keeps me alive; how about I voluntarily plant my puss into random objects at high speeds?" Again: love Kabal, used that move once in MK:D. Once.


I think Nomad's Touch was part of Havik's influence on him. A chatic attack that made no sense, unless you understand Havik.

lol, Hotaru's ass... HOT AR U?

Jarek - Kano rip-off piece of shit that should've never existed.
Kai - Indifferent.
Kobra - Fucking Ken rip-off.
Drahmin - I kinda like him for some reason, I don't know why.
Hsu Hao - He can fuck off.
Reiko - Worthless.
Meat - Don't even get me started.
Moloch - Indifferent.
Mokap - He can eat shit and die.
Daegon - Go away.
Chameleon - Shang Tsung can already do what he does, and more. He's entirely worthless.

A clash of mountainous muscle! Moloch is a hulking three-eyed demon hailing from the Netherrealm. A giant ball and chain offers no encumberment for the Oni Destroyer, instead becoming a deadly weapon to be hurled with prejudice toward his prey - mortal or demon alike! Ferra/Torr is the symbiosis of brain and brawn. The lumbering Torr views the world through a hessian veil, directed by the vicious mind of diminutive Ferra - who herself is gladly hurled at unsuspecting foes. Powerhouses both, but whose reach is greatest?... FIGHT!

Technically I wasn't asking you either, but you mean well and seem nice so I'm not going to judge you like I am brutally and mercilessly judging Quanchi9. You seem to have actually understood that it was a list of characters who I personally believe are less interesting/relevant and have a lot less potential than Hotaru and even Dairou, but you're not blaming the actual characters themselves, and are indicating that you wouldn't shut them down just because of how they've been portrayed in the past. It's a good attitude to have. Look at, say, Rain, for instance, who went from a joke character/pariah to a legitimately respected and popular character.

Anyway, this matchup is strangely appropriate, size-wise. I'd go with Ferra/Torr, though, for the simple reason that they can talk, are a fun concept, are more interesting to play as, and you get to use a child as a projectile. It's hard to say whether they can have any relevance in the future since we don't know much about them, but I find them more entertaining than Moloch.

Looks like I gotta flip the non-existent coin on this one. Look at that, tails. Guess I'm voting for the fucking dyad.

Oh, and you don't need to ask for me to boast about my two cents for me to spill my milk all over you, Reptile!

Sorry, but I thought "I've always wondered...." was an invitation for me to blow my fucking load everywhere! Gee, excuse me for thinking that this thread was all about opinions and sharing them with people, hence the reply and fucking voting option.

I really liked this post and the idea of Havik becoming a boss. I've never heard this idea before but it totally would have worked.

I love this too. Kabal is ridiculous. Great character design (who doesn't love Star Wars?) but his moves have never made any sense whatsoever. He was always horrifying to fight in MK3. His story has always been shaky at best, and the reboot didn't do much to help that. At least he looks cool, right?

As for this vote... I really like Ferra/Torr because the concept was actually bold and interesting. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy playing as them at all and they didn't have the backstory hook to keep them interesting. I appreciate the effort but I wish they can do a better job with them in the future. Hope they aren't doomed to the klassic MK thing called "fading into obscurity". Where as Moloch actually both plays well and has great lore. I may or may not have posted this every time I've voted Moloch, but...



I gotta vote for the Oni-Destroyer. Him and his oni bro Drahmin have so much potential to be amazing and it's disappointing that they weren't in MKX, especially with the Netherrealm war being a focus. I hope to see him again.

Gotta vote Moloch.
