Kronika not truly dead?
05/08/2019 11:03 AM EST

So if Geras was a fixed point in time and he couldn't die. Than is the same for Kronika?

She said there were many time lines.

Lui Kang did beat her, however do you really think that it's that easy for Kronika to die the way she did? Like Shinnok stated, that Raiden couldn't kill an Elder God. Wouldn't the same be said for Kronika?

She could just rematerialize and retaliate against Lui Kang again couldn't she? I mean she had a lot of powers in the game and I don't think we saw what she is fully capable. So I am thinking it's possible to see her make a comeback.

Thoughts?

Not to be sexist in any way but do you think males (like Geras) can handle more than females (like Kronika) when we are talking about such convoluted responsibilities, at such a demandingly high level? After all Kronika's only a woman, statuses aside.

I’m sure we are going to have a story pack DLC. And I really hope for it

Shut-up.

Anyhoo, I think like any Elder God, a Titan's life essence exists beyond the laws of time and space. Even Raiden would respawn after "death."

My guess is, while her physical form is gone, Kronika's life essence still exists. All she needs is a new body, which she could probably constuct on her own.

I see her more like an emeritus until there is events of alot more significance that are worthy of her return. All the time stuff is in her department, so who knows if this time side of things will pop up again.

We have not had bosses returning in the next game since Shao Kahn from MK2 to MK3. I do not know if she is going to return in MK12 but I highly doubt it.

While I didn’t mind the story, it really takes the piss out of these conversations. Is she or isn’t she, doesn’t even matter. The MK universe at large hasn’t even reached the primordial ooze phase of existence, according to how the story ends.

You work with what you got...not what you hope for.

No one truly is in MK. I mean if Elder gods, or even gods, or as we now call them "demigods" can just step down from their posts, I'm sure a titan can too. She'll be back. They'll probably take Shinnoks story and repurpose it for her. So it's now her trying to get back her mantle from Liu-Ah shit. You sly dog! You got me speculating and trying to predict the next chapter of MK.

But that has proven since Armageddon, and solidified with MK11 to be a wasted endeavour

Bottom line, NRS seems to be digging their heels in with these new characters so I doubt she's gone.

The only boss we've had that has not returned in future games (excluding Amrageddon) is Onaga, and there's always a chance he'll return.

I say give it a few odd years, and Kronika will be a playable character.

Yeah give it a game or two when they do this whole time travel reboot crap again and I'm sure she'll be back. Like a time guardian Liu Kang vs time guardian Kronika, each battling over the hour glass or some such bullshit.

And also in Scorpion ending we can see another Titan. Could it be Cetrion and Shinnok ‘s father?

Plot twist, the father of the elder god's isThe One being. I could see them just taking straight from Greek mythology for that one. But I think I'm still giving the MK mythology and story too much thought these days.

They'll probably keep her fate a mystery until they inevitably fuck up again and can easily pull her out of storage again.

Why couldn't this ending have happened?

The One Being will never be anything but a background entity- mainly because if IT awakens it'll shatter the entire MK multi-verse and all reality, no matter its respective timeline, will cease to exist. So I wouldn't expect The One Being to be Kronika's baby daddy or anything like that- it doesn't make sense.

No, I don't think Kronika is dead. I doubt a being like that ever truly dies. She'll be back in the future. Which I'm happy about, I think she's a pretty sweet character and I would love if she could become a regular character we see every now and again from here on out. Her time powers are too cool to waste. Plus, she's like NRS own built-in cheat sheet- if they ever screw something up(which they always do these days) or simply want to alter a narrative path they regret going down- they can go "Oh look what Kronika and her crazy time powers did this time".

If a god can’t killed an elder god ( as Shinnok said to Raiden) he certainly can’t kill a Titan

If she winds the clock back to where the realms don't exist which she does do, she says it herself, then how was it not awakened by the end of MK11? And besides that, they have established that the Elder Gods and Titans exist alongside the One Being so...

The only thing it being awake destroys is our reality. however that shit works. I don't know you're not going to make me give this shit more thought than the current hack writers behind this series.

I'm not pulling for it to be a fighter like so many others seem to, I'm just saying.

Dead or not I just wish Kronika was portraited a bit more stronger in the story. She had such a potential but ended like a very lame bad "boss" character.

Anybody else kind of bothered about the whole 'Titan' concept?

My big gripe with it is this: It's been well established in the lore that before the creation of the realms, there was the One Being and the Elder Gods. When the Elder Gods split its consciousness, it created the realms as we know them. Now NRS is telling us that this whole time, there were beings called Titans who are more powerful than, and created, the Elder Gods? I get that the developers dish out more retcons than JK Rowling, but this one strikes me as pretty egregious.

If they were smart, they would have introduced Titans as descendants, maybe even direct descendants/offspring of the Elder Gods themselves. That way, their introduction in MK11 would have made sense without us having any prior knowledge of them.

My head hurts now. Yeah, I was thinking wrong. I thought EVERY THING was basically a creation of The One Being's consciousness but I forgot the Elder Gods and Titans all co-existed with The One Being at one point whilst it was fully intact. So this makes it all the more confusing for me. It also leads to questions I doubt will ever be truly answered, at least not to satisfaction with these writers.

What the fuck is The One Being? Is it a titan? Is it something far superior/powerful? How Is Kronika connected to him? Why did it feed on the Elder Gods essence?

Well color me completely stumped. Something tells me what we know is not much less than what the current writers do...How disappointing.

The writers simply forgot about that one piece of lore and screwed the story yet again.

So much for consistency, right?

They're not going to introduce Titans and not factor Kronika in at some point in the future again. I wouldn't be surprised to see her "depowered" and added to the main roster in the next game (maybe even as DLC before the end of the MK11 life cycle). While it doesn't seem that NRS plans out their stories years and years in advance (for example - I don't think they have any idea where they will go with the story next), they've introduced a new major entity that can certainly provide them with a lot of realm-spanning, universe-altering and time-bending potential.

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?
