That vega-like Rain is awesome! Why didn't they use it instead of the rather boring ninja in MK9?

Yes, but only if he's actually part of the storyline this time around.

I liked how his MK9 story portrayed him as a flip-flopper, and I'd like that to be a major part of his character. If Daegon also comes back, then both he and Rain should interact with one another in the story mode.

I'd also like his "upside-down" fatality to return, as I thought it was hilarious.

As for the people who say he's a joke character and shouldn't return because of that, here are two other fan favorites who started out as jokes: Ermac, and Noob Saibot. So Rain is a Purple Rain pun. Ermac was a glitch, and Noob, well, it's pretty obvious what he was in the beginning.

It wouldn't make sense if they don't put Rain in this game, if only as a cameo... He would want the throne of outworld for himself.

Isn't that superb!?

I always thought his outfit should be mainly black and gold with purple trimmings. Plus that underwear thing going on is no worse than this stuff -

Exactly! As soon as Kahn was gone he would already be moving pieces around to get the throne for himself. But of course, NRS will never acknowledged him as a serious character.

So of course they didn't treat this as a possibility. Heck I'm willing to bet it is mentioned at some time during the comic and you get one panel of Mileena ripping his head off or Goro bashing him out of the way because fuck the guy who wears purple right NRS?

Wouldn't surprise me with how they have been treating some of the post trilogy characters.

Yes, I suppose he should but I truly look forward to Rain fighting any Sub Zero, weakened beforehand or not; I mean even Kano got to win against SZ. Rain may or may not have it in him to win against a cryomancer, nevertheless, a story confrontation is all I want. Water vs ice! Fatalities are optional.
... here's your Subzero, now plain zero.

I wished Rain returned for the next game if he doesn't come back in MKX.

He would've been the "Vegeta" of MK. Probably with a touch of Vega.

Gay how? He dated Kitana.

however on your idea............I thought that Rain and Fujin would be a great couple to counter Johnny and Sonya.

Just a thought.

Red herring.

He can still be in MKX, all of what this means is that he might ALSO be in 11

No no no that would be SubZero and Smoke. wink

Rain is more a Vega/Gaston from Beauty and the Beast type character. Very full of himself, very narcissistic, but very handsome. I mean he could be gay, but I don't really see it.

Do people really think Rain is going to be relegated to DLC for the second MK game in a row?

God I hope he makes it in to MKX, but it really, really wouldn't surprise me if he didn't. I wonder if he at least gets a mention in the story mode?

He's a demi-god and the true protector of Edenia. He deserves a shot at redemption I'd say. But, how do you know he's gay?
He's a knock off of the song "purple rain" sung by Prince. While Prince is a glam-pop/rock singer he is indeed straight.

Well I'll be damned, child, 'tis a brighter day.

Rain is actually the only fanboy favorite whom I support as well. Never made sense to me that he was left out the MK9 initial roster.

That being said he will always be a victim of the "Bigger fish to fry" syndrome. Seems also, that he'll only appear if all the other original ninjas are there as well. So if it means we need Noob/Smoke in the MKX roster to see Rain as well, then I'll pass. I'm way over the ninjas now. The current foursome we have right now is where it should stop.

MK: Defenders of the Realm.

Not really canon, but still.

MK has never mentioned orientations before, nor should they start now.

IF, for some god-awful reason, they canonically say he's gay, he's fierce. If he's not, he's STILL fierce! Love me some Rain. Always have.

But leaving thread before my fanboyism reaches critical mass.

Why the hell are people so concerned about his sexual orientation? Just because he wears purple? Jesus.

Rain is in love with himself, not with another guy.

Purple is the color of royal and power as it is a combination of two primary colors blue and red, pink is the gay-color.

Next.
