Poor Sheeva. She never stood a chance.


Not even in the tier list.

She's ALWAYS at the bottom.

By the way, I don't understand why Sheeva has ANY votes. Everything special about her came out of a different character.


Technically not true, she was broken in MKT. Then again, everyone was.

Voting Smoke for this one. Triborg can be fun to play, but I don't consider him to be an actual character.


Tier list at the bottom of the page.

And once again, Sheeva's the worst character to play as.


I know there's no point in arguing with obnoxious people like you but tier lists don't count for a fucking thing. We all know she's at the bottom, nobody cares.


What the fu- what did I do? I was just making an observation. I wasn't even being obnoxious about it either, I was just supporting my claim.

Also, you cared enough to give me a humorous response featuring you being a bloody bigoted basketcase.

I'm not sure what I did to make you so angry but calm down, mate. Have a pint or something. Jesus fucking Christ.

I wasn't arguing either. I was informing. Fuck, man.

A fated face-off between endangered NPCs! For a warrior wielding the icy touch of kori techniques - Frost is remarkably hot headed! One of the newer Lin Kuei recruits, she learns to unlock the true power of her art from Grandmaster Kuai Liang - but is her selfish heart ready? Stryker was once a hero cop selflessly serving the public trust. When the forces of Outworld invaded his city beat, the mortal lawman discovered his true destiny as a chosen warrior of Earthrealm! Sacrificing himself to save the world, Stryker now serves a new master as a revenant - his heart corrupted by dark arts! Only one can progress! Choose their destiny... FIGHT!

Kurtis Stryker, muthafucka.

The total absence of police brutality in MKX was an injustice.

I vote Stryker.

Obviously Frost. Maybe not the best character ever, but she's up against Stryker.

Is this even a question?
I dislike Earthrealm cops in Mortal Kombat even more after the MKX Special Forces and earthream characters overhaul

I went with Stryker. Don't hate Frost but think Stryker fills a good niche in the MK universe.

Tier lists are subjective, and I personally disagree with Sheeva being bottom tier in MKT considering she has an infinite, but I digress.

Voting Stryker for this one, never really cared for Frost all that much and her appearance in MKX was probably the worst of the cameos imo.

Well, Stryker didn't do much except headshot a few soldiers.

Frost didn't do much except being angry.

But Stryker was my favorite MK3 and MK9 character so... I need to vote for him.

Could someone tell me what you guys like about Frost? I'm not complaining about her winning over Stryker, but I'm kinda confused as to why people like her so much. As for her character, she's a female Sub-Zero... that's it. Her moveset isn't really unique either, it's all absorbed from Sub-Zero. I don't really find her story compelling, either. Is there something Frost did that was amazing? And yes, I know this could be applied to any character, including Quan Chi, but I'm just curious.

Frost. I like Stryker a lot and always have, but he's not as relevant as she is right now and I tend to lean towards that when it comes to voting.

Sub-Zero is a wise and honorable battle-hardened warrior. Frost is a young, brash hothead with the devious intent to only join the Lin Kuei to overthrow the Grandmaster. They're almost opposites as far as character goes.

She was a lot faster than Sub-Zero in the last trilogy and her moves were fundamentally different, even if they were clearly inspired by old Sub-Zero abilities. Plenty of characters started with roots based on other characters (Just look at the MKX newcomers) but they're still unique and valuable.

Voted Stryker.

Frost is an entertaining character, but she's still the Sakura to Sub-Zero's Ryu.

Stryker was the first Kombatant to bring a gun, spurring a ton of imitators. For a guy who was considered the lamest MK character ever for over a decade (and then Taven showed up), that's actively cool.

Notice how he got more fans after MK9? All they had to do was make him look like a badass police officer, as opposed to his mall security look in MK3.

I would add that Frost is different to SZ as she embodies freezing powers that have an emphasis on unbalancing the opponent; SZ on the other hand prefers to freeze opponents whole through parries and attacks.

In the original timeline, yes I would agree but not for the current timeline; the student definitely has more potential and she could very well surpass her master.
... here's your Subzero, now plain zero.

Yea Frost has the advantage of having an actual power. After freezing his gun and his feet to the ground, Frost can just go berserk on poor Stryker 'cause you know she's a little bloodlustful bitch. So this match goes to Frost.

Yeah, Stryker was considered a lame joke for the longest time, till MK9 redeemed him.

I'm voting Frost though, fuck tha police...

Oh, so she's basically a faster Sub-Zero with less strength in terms of abilities? Seems like a decent trade, although I think I would've rather had a character with a more... contrasting moveset than her's, because that still gives us two characters with ice powers and stuff. Her personality consisting of hothead and brash just kinda makes me like her a lot less, to be honest. I guess her character and story just leaves a lot to be desired. Honestly, I don't think her surpassing Sub-Zero would be a good idea, and I think most people would probably agree with that.

Hah I have to admit when MK3 came out I wasn't a big fan of his outfit but the numerous years (and most likely nostalgia goggles) have made me dig his look in that game. He looked like a completely normal guy dragged into the wrong place at the wrong time, which fits the framework of his backstory.
