Color of blood is getting "confusing"
04/13/2019 02:39 AM EST

In the Kitana/D'vorah trailer, it looks like D'vorah got several colors of blood. Well, the light green is probably mucus from all the bugs. And her blood during the fight is dark green. But when getting hit by Krushing/Fatal Blows, her blood suddenly is the nearly neon blue color that first belonged to Geras.
And this is starting to confuse me. First of all I didn't get why they changed Geras' blood to red. The neon blue fitted well I thought. But now D'vorah gets it kind of.

I Think they should give Geras blue blood back. That’s is what made Him different and it looks kool.

Yeah, it was odd they decided to change the color of Geras’ blood to red. I wonder what prompted that? Seeing as how he is a being created by Kronika (therefore far from anything human) the neon blue blood actually fit him and was unique.

I find it mildly depressing that you're attributing blue blood as first belonging to Geras, when D'Vorah already had Blue Blood in MKX...

Well, I'm looking at footage in MKX and her blood is more of a dark green with maybe a slight touch of blue. She still has that blood during the fight in 11, but when there is a fatal blow or fatality is performed on her, her blood looks more like the neon blue Geras had earlier. Maybe it's because of the way the light fatal blows and fatality's, but it's still a major difference.

I haven't actually seen Dvorah much with MKX. I was late to the party with MKXL, I always wait for the komplete editions, because it's cheaper, got the whole game and I'm not one to play online.

no. Spirit_Wolf described it pretty accurately.

Well he described it as “Dark green with maybe a touch of blue”... and to that I say: My ass. Reptile’s blood was dark green. D’vorahs blood was blue. I’ll give you its more muted in MKX, and less vibrant than 11... but so is every other color in the game (including the red blood). Muted colors were a known and common criticism of MKX... Anyway...

That’s freaking blue. And damn sure not just “maybe a touch” and damn sure not green...

And look during the fights. The screenshots you show are during X-rays/fatality's. Which is exactly my point, because when fighting, it is "dark green with a touch of blue". But apparantly this was already in MKX this way. But as I said, I didn't encounter with D'vorah that much in MKX.

See below. During a fight. Blue.

I'll grant you, a good amount of yellow-green liquid shoots out of her during fights too, so I can see where there's room for confusion, but the yellow-green liquid is her vomit/bug juice/larva spit/whatever.

And for the record, MK11 too... Blue...

It's probably more pronounced during X-Rays and Fatal Blows because the lighting adjusts and the camera zooms in tight. This may make the blue more vibrant during flare moves. But it's not like the color itself changes. Her blood is and has always only ever been blue.
