If Motaro is in the game then Jax has to be, too because Mr. Ed is his!

Make him a DLC or a DLC boss instead of god damn Leatherface or something. At this point, I would expect a game company to be able to make a Centaur functional. It's 2019.

I used to really love Motaro, but it doesn't bother me that he's never really been important since MK3. It adds charm when a character exists within a certain window like that. If Kintaro made as many appearances as Goro, people would not be so nostalgic and in love with the guy. I'm fine with Motaro remaining a fond sub-boss from MK3 memory.

Considering MK11 is going to be a "time-bending" story, it would be totally awesome if Motaro is the sub-boss! Sure, Motaro would take work to create, but, I think he could be done as a non-playable sub-boss for sure.

Motaro was the big bad for me growing up. MK3 was my most played game. Looking back... he's a cake walk (sans BS where he would just interrupt your combos). I'd like to see him return, but he's not a big deal to me, nor do I expect to see him return. It would be a nice surprise.

Motaro died in MK9. Raiden killed him. Case closed... unless they make him the preorder bonus for MK12. lol

If by "dying" you mean Raiden simply "torpedo" him into the water then that would be a sad excuse to never reintroduce him to the franchise.

This is the mondern era of MK with shoddy story telling and botched character execution. I think that's the best Motaro is ever going to get at this point. And it's mostly just because of laziness which as most vet MK fans know laziness and NRS go together like PB and J.

He could work as a sub boss ... Non xrayable non krushable and if he has an auto post fight death " explosion ?"

Would love to link him to MK11.

I just wrote this whole TLDR thing over in the "Kombat Kids are dead" thread... which was very rambly, so I won't repeat it here... but to sum it up: This franchise has been lazily killing & resurrecting characters since MK1. That's not new. People just didn't bother to read or follow the story back then, so not as many folks noticed it.

It started with Goro & Bi-Han. Who both died in MK1, then came back later. One as a wraith. The other as "turns out he never died in the first place"

It continued in nearly every game thereafter...

I mean technically Motaro died in the old timeline too. He got killed off in Konquest Mode backstory during MKDA. Then presumably later just walked out of the Netherealm for the big fight in MKA. Give or take two legs.
