I love the maternal instinct storyline of Ameerah, and I cannot particularly point out any weaknesses. I like the aspect of a new dimension, the Dreamrealm: perhaps she fought Freddy Krueger when Nightwolf returned him there. The only possible dislike is that Ameerah is not her own entity, but a (demi) goddess who possesses her daughter’s body similar to Liu/Kano in Quan Chi’s MK:DA ending, Reptile/Onaga in MK:D, and Cyber Sub/Kahn in Cyber Sub-Zero’s MK9 ending.

Thanks for the comments. I appreciate any feedback even if you are not voting for my entry hehe ;) I just wanted to point out something that I didn't notice before and maybe people get it confused. Actually Ameerah "is" her own entity and didn't actually possess her daughter's body. She used it to reenter the real world after she gained back her powers. I didn't make that clear in her bio perhaps but I thought the fact that in her ending she comes in contact with Jade, it shows that she has a body of her own :P She "can" possess a body in her sand form as you can tell by her story and 1st fatality but she has a real body of course. Maybe I should have made that more clear.

Thanks for the clarification. I just wanted to point out that, of the three matches with you, I had only not voted for you once; l found it a bit tough to decide between Ameerah and Xorah. As you may have noticed, you got my vote this round, as Ameerah and Eastwind are among my favorites in this year's competition.

I got to get used to adding the previous messages with the new ones. Obviously, my new comments are in the last paragraph of my previous post.

I think there will be a couple of close calls in this round.... Well, in the public vote, at least. The judge votes are a bit... Confusing at times, heh.

Group 1: Blizzard
Group 2: Dead Soul
Group 3: The Simberleen
Group 4: Ameerah

In my earlier review of Ameerah I pointed out an apparent flaw that seemed to break the rules of this contest. Namely, I accused her of not being an original character because she's directly based on an in-game character. But having talked with projectzero00 about it, it turns out that Ameerah is perfectly fine with the judges because the character she's based on isn't yet confirmed canon.

So apologies to projectzero00 for the trouble, and thank goodness I no longer feel the need to vote against Ameerah on a technicality when she otherwise deserves a win.

Ekimaru and Gragtek reviews coming up later!

If the creator is asserting that this is inseparably the existing character in question, then we're going to have no choice but to disqualify the entry and correct all corresponding results (to default defeats). If this is merely an homage or similar but independent creation (as was the impression taken when allowing the character into the contest), then there's not a lot we can object to. That would come under referencing species, realms and affiliations.

Having spoken to projectzero00, my impression was that this was an independent creation with some similarity. It's a grey area when it pertains to characters who are ill defined, but that's where the judgment of voting users and judges comes into effect. It isn't a breach to the letter, but it's certainly a valid criticism.
