TOURNAMENT BATTLE - ROUND 1:
Skarlet versus Mileena
#44 Supreme Ranking #13
2 wins 6 losses Record 11 wins 6 losses
Round 2 (2016) Best Result Semis (2015)

Skarlet was created from the blood of fallen warriors to serve as Shao Kahn's personal enforcer. Conjured by The Emperor himself, she fought to fill the void of his death in the pages of Mortal Kombat X comic books. Aligned with Reiko, she conspired against the Empress Mileena, believing herself to have as much claim to the throne as his daughter of the Flesh Pits. Reiko promised her enhanced powers by Blood Magik, but this was a lie. She was last seen captured for torture by Mileena and her forces.

Like her opponent, Mileena was engineered to serve Shao Kahn. Upon his demise; Mileena arose an unlikely heir to the Outworld throne. Her brief reign as Empress was ended by Kotal Kahn, igniting a civil war between factions loyal to each ruler. Shinnok's Amulet gave Mileena a slight edge at the cost of slowly killing her. Eventually captured by Kotal Kahn, she was executed by D'Vorah - devoured by the Kytinn's insect horde.

Skarlet made a mild impact in the print of comic books, but will the blood spilled in MKX paint a picture of her return to kombat? Mileena was utterly destroyed, but as a creation of Shang Tsung's Flesh Pits, could another Mileena emerge in the future? Choose their destiny! FIGHT!

So far my votes have been

Sub Zero
Reptile
Termor
Skarlet

Sub Zero and Reptile are favoruties of mine and i just am not a massive fan of Rain or Mileena so their opponents got my votes. Though Mileena was improved story wise in MKX.

I wish Blaze got more of a chance. I think he could be a good character. Maybe he'll appear in the next installment.

This is probably the wrong way to do this, but I’m kinda going more off of whobid rather see in the next game. Mileena’s had two games where she’s been a major player; MKD and MKX. In both cases, she’s just kinda evil and power hungry and that’s as deep as she goes. That’s fine, but all of this, plus her death in MKX tells me that Skarlet would be my preference for the next MK game.

As more or less the red female ninja, I think it’s time to give her more of a role. I think there’s more that can be done with her story, starting with what a blood magic warrior created to serve would do without having anyone to serve. Who does she side with and why? Does she find some sort of personal freedom? Do others seek to control her?

I’m not sure how much the events of the comic are canon, but a pairing with Reiko could’ve been interesting, but probably wouldn’t make sense now. Either way, she’s a creation of Shao Khan and considers herself his daughter, and she seems to be more of a kunoichi than any of the other women in the game, and I think that has value as well.

So yeah, I’m down for more Skarlet. Mileena’s basically just evil with a little crazy power lust thrown in. I think Skarlet has the potential to be more.

Oh and I didn’t vote in the previous three, but I’d have taken Sub, Reptile and prooooooobably Tremor? Maybe? That one’s almost 50/50 for me.

Mileena has evolved so much over the games. She's come a long way in design and story. I liked the idea of Mileena as the Empress in Exile trying to reclaim the throne she believes to be rightfully hers, and I wish she survived in MKX.

I loved Skarlet conceptually but she was a one game wonder secret character. Sometimes it's fine just to be that one secret character from the one game...it becomes a core part of the character identity.

That said, Mileena will also have a special place in the MK mythos. My vote goes to her.
Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

Mileena peaked in mkx and then she died. It is time to see what Skarlet can really do.

TOURNAMENT BATTLE - ROUND 1:
Erron Black versus Takeda
#14 Supreme Ranking #30
5 wins 3 losses Record 2 wins 3 losses
Round 3 (2017) Best Result Round 2 (2016)

The unaging gunslinger Erron Black made his fair share of enemies on debut in Mortal Kombat X! In comic books, he joined the Black Dragon clan to kidnap the children of Earth's Special Forces, battling Mavado's Red Dragon in the process. Lending his mercenary services to Emperor Kotal Kahn, he also fought to quell deposed Empress Mileena, and those loyal to her! Erron was last seen accompanying the new Emperor to Earthrealm, leading to a showdown with the Lin Kuei and Special Forces.

Takahashi Takeda was among the new generation of agents caught between the conflict of Outworld's civil war, and the Netherrealm invasion of Earth. The son of Kenshi was trained by Scorpion and the Shirai-Ryu, fighting alongside his master against the vil of Havik in comic books, before following in his father's footsteps with the Special Forces. In his MKX ending, he accompanied his father on a mission to find his mother's Red Dragon killer. Instead, they discovered the dragon Caro, who led them to the dormant Edenian demi-god: Taven.

Both are warriors originating from Earthrealm, but could renewed hostility with Outworld make enemies of them again? Will Erron Black continue to fight in the name of Kotal Kahn? Will Takeda defend his world, or choose the path of satisfaction? Choose their destiny! FIGHT!

Gone Takeda here.

I justvlike Takedas design and playstyle a bit bettter. Both seemed just to be randomly added into the game with no real reason. Another random bad guy and and another random kid. They both need to be a lot more fleshed out if they are to return.

Erron Black is one of the coolest character designs I’ve seen in this series since MK2. I like Takeda a lot too, but Erron Black gets my vote.

Voting Black. Takeda is definitely leaps and bounds better than the other "kids" but I still don't really care. Maybe in the next game.

Of all the new recruits in MKX I liked Erron Black quite a bit. Takeda was good too...had a good story that I would look to see unfold a bit more in the next game. I rather enjoyed his hybrid Scorpion/Kenshi abilities and hope to see him develop further as a character. However, Erron Black was just too cool...mysterious, cunning and clearly more than meets the eye. He's another character I hope to see expanded upon, and the one I favor in this matchup.
Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

Wtf how is Takeda losing to a cowboy who doesn't have a backstory personality or motivation and isn't even a good character to play as-oh wait he is edgy....that probably why he is winning

Erron Black grew on me a lot and I think he's a great addition to the roster, but Takeda is my favourite newcomer since Deadly Alliance and I'm looking forward to seeing where they go with him in the next game. He gets my vote.

TOURNAMENT BATTLE - ROUND 1:
Kobra versus Jarek
#76 Supreme Ranking #72
0 wins 4 losses Record 0 wins 5 losses
Round 1 (2015) Best Result Round 1 (2016)

Kobra studied the martial arts for years, becoming the greatest fighter in his class -- but he craved the knowledge of visceral feedback. Stalking the streets of New York, he practised the lethality of his style on criminals until he joined their ranks. In the original timeline he was recruited into the new Black Dragon clan by Kabal, but his only mention since the reboot is a rumor he was killed by Erron Black.

Jarek is a charter member of the criminal Black Dragon clan! He succeed Kano in the original timeline of MK4, but remains a secondary player since reality was rebooted. He was last seen in Mortal Kombat X comic books, attacking an underground fight club with Tasia in an effort to kidnap Cassie Cage and Jacqui Briggs. He and the rest of the Black Dragon appeared loyal to Kotal Kahn during Outworld's civil war, but their loyalty remains uncertain since Kano's betrayal.

They're among Earthrealm's deadliest martial artists, but if another tournament should ever arise - could they really be called upon to defend the world? Did Kobra survive his rumored encounter with Erron Black? Would he fight for - or against Jarek and the Black Dragon? Choose their destiny! FIGHT!

I don't care that much for either of these. Jarek had a cool entrance in the MKX comics so I guess I'll go with him?

Kobra's a decent character who just needs to be fleshed out. Jarek had a few chances and none of them went anywhere, so I would be okay with him being doomed to NPC status. Kobra wins.

TOURNAMENT BATTLE - ROUND 1:
Kotal Kahn versus D'Vorah
#20 Supreme Ranking #39
4 wins 3 losses Record 2 wins 4 losses
Round 3 (2017) Best Result Round 2 (2016)

At the end of Mortal Kombat X, Kotal Kahn was undisputed Emperor of Outworld! The execution of Mileena brought an end to the civil war for his throne, while forces in Earthrealm dealt with the conspiring element of Quan Chi. Though his greatest enemies are destroyed, Kotal moves toward a future of renewed tensions with humanity. MKX endings present a possible future where Kahn will fight to defend Outworld from the hostile forces of Earth in a tournament of Mortal Kombat!

D'Vorah served as advisor to Kotal Kahn throughout his conquest of Outworld. She even delivered his greatest rival to execution - the former Empress Mileena! Yet the Kytinn's atypical loyalty hid a true allegiance to Quan Chi and his dark lord: Shinnok! When the time was right, D'Vorah sprung her betrayal! She stole Shinnok's Amulet, allowing Quan Chi to free the fallen Elder God from his mystic prison. After torturing Johhny Cage, she was defeated by Cassie, and taken into Special Forces custody.

Their alliance brought about a new age of civilization in Outworld, but their bond was built on a lie! Will a Special Forces prison cell protect D'Vorah from retribution, or will renewed hostilities between Kotal Kahn and the forces of Earthrealm deliver his wrath to the former advisor? Choose their destiny! FIGHT!

I dislike both, but will vote D'Vorah, at least she is smart.

Kotal is the stupidest character in MKX and a total disgrace of replacement to Shao Kahn. I really wish to see him killed by Shao Kahn.

Man, some tough draws here! Sucks that Jarek gets Kobra while two characters that should advance past the first round face off, but that’s how it goes.

Anyways, I think Kotal’s an awesome character design, and while I like Dvorah, I think Kotal feels more vital to the story, so I’ll pick him.
