Idea for the sequels story. (Spoilers)
04/23/2015 03:13 AM EST
After the credits of Mortal Kombat X's story mode we see a corrupted Raiden who threatens the new Netherrealm rulers (Kitana and Liu Kang) and, tells them that he will no longer just defend Earthrealm. He will eliminate any threat to Earthrealm as he sees fit. Obviously Liu Kang and Kitana are the obvious choices but what about Kotal Kahn and Outworld. Kotal Kahn's ending Raiden defeats him and claims dominion over Outworld as he doesn't trust the realm. Kotal then pleads to the Elder Gods for help and they introduce a Mortal Kombat tournament where the strongest Outworld warriors defend their realm against Earthrealm's strongest. I would like a hybrid of the two stories.

In this version the sequel would introduce Kotal Kahn as more of a protagonist who will defend Outworld from a corrupted Raiden who is hell bent on conquering the realm as a means to protect Earthrealm. This could make characters who never really offered much to the story in MKX like Ermac, Erron Black, Ferra/Torr, and Reptile a bigger role in the story. It also finally allows us to play as characters who have traditionally been in the Evil/Neutral faction. We get to see things from the perspective Outworld characters for once.

Raiden and his Earthrealm warriors will invade the realm, all the while Liu Kang and Kitana will be ready to take advantage of the fact that the 2 realms that could stand in opposition to them are in a war with each other.

I haven't really thought about it much but it seems like a cool idea to me. Tell me what ideas you have for the next MX story.

VERY Possible, If it will be another Outworld v Earthrealm story im sure Raiden will be much more violent like he states in the ending, The Earthrealm warriors (Cassie Cage, Takeda, Jackie, and Kung Jin) might want to stop Raiden because of his actions, again he's Dark Raiden he's just going to kill anyone who says "I'm going to invade Earthrealm." So if Raiden calls up his new defenders of Earthrealm to help him fight against Outworld they will join him, and in the process, again with Raidens violence, Cassie and the crew realize "he's not who he was before" and that "it's not the way" then they will have no other choice then to stop Raiden from his madness, but they need help. Thus leading to an alliance Outworld (Kotal Kahn, Erron Black, Ermac etc.) The Netherrealm (Emperor Liu Kang an Empress Kitana, and all the Revnants) and Earthrealms champions (Cassie Cage, Takeda, Jackie Kung Jin, POSSIBLY Johnny Cage, Sonya, Kenshi etc.) all working together to stop Raiden and bring him to the light, to make peace to all the realms. And if this is the case, Liu Kang will fight him in Mortal Kombat and finally getting his revenge and avenging all of the deaths Raiden caused. Liu Kang then faced his former mentor and friend, he then defeats Raiden. Liu then realizes there needs to be a new protecter of Earthrealm, with Kitana remaining at his side "Liu Kang was then made a God the new protector of Earthrealm"
Embrace the bullshit

I don't comment much, but I had to log in for this one. I would love the idea of flipping the traditional Earthrealm as protagonists thing. One thing I really loved about MKX was despite Kotal Kahn bearing the name Kahn and ruling Outworld, he wasn't really a bad guy. I found myself really hoping he'd ally Outworld with Earthrealm.

Plus after that post credit scene, it's hard to see Lui Kang and Kitana as a real threat the way we saw Shinnok by the end of MK9.

I think its time for a new protagonist to join in the next game.

My character will still be Liu and Kitana's kid from the future. He disguises himself in a demon mask just to see Kotal Kahn in Outworld first, suggesting him to hold a Mortal Kombat tournament.

He also goes to Earthrealm to see Cassie, now in charge, along with her fellow unit to go to their tournament. In that way, Dark Raiden will be born throughout the tourney.

It'll be an arc for a new Outworld tournament.

The second arc will involve the Dragon King's acolytes preparing for his return. And the son will have Earth's defenders rescue the remaining revenants and his parents, allowing Noob Saibot to take over the Netherrealm.

The main antagonists will be Dark Raiden, Shang Tsung and one of Onaga's acolytes: a sorcerer or alchemist.
