Mileena popularity
08/28/2020 07:29 PM EST

I started following Ed on twitter and it seems basically anything he posts, whether it’s new character related, skins related, sports related, or about politics he is hounded with Mileena memes or demands about putting her in.

I’ve been into MK since 93. Started on the forums (mk5.org) in around 00/01. I think in 07 mk5.org did a massive rate the characters thread out of 100 and the score was averaged out. Sub Zero won on 94 Shao Kahn was second on 92. I remember Shang Tsung and Kung Lao were top ten at mid 80s and Scorpion was 10th with 79. There was a little controversy because SZ was first rated and Scorpion was last but Mileena was middle of the road on 62 or something.

MK9 was probably my last game I was super involved with on forums (still check in time to time but work etc) and Mileena still wasn’t that popular. So when did the Mileena popularity become a thing? Or is this purely a joke?

Was so strange when mk5.org stopped diverting here! First forum net forum I joined as a 12 year old. Watched the MKDA trailer through dial up Internet on this site haha.

I was a Kitana MKII main myself.

I don’t mind her just surprised with all the harassment Ed gets. Not sure if legit or it’s become a meme.

For me Mileena isn't hugely popular but the reason I keep asking for Mileena is because I feel if you have Kitana in the game it is better to also included Mileena. To me it is about not having one without the other. They need to be a pair and I know there have been games that featured only one or the other and they were not that huge in popularity. Kitana and Mileena both debuted in MKII. They both returned in UMK3 - MK Trilogy. In MK Gold they were also both included. For the 3D era they were not in both Deadly Alliance or Deception together. They may have been in Deception Unchained but I cannot remember but it wasn't until Armageddon until they were both back in the game together. Since the reboot and its sequel they've both been in the game together. Sure in MKX storyline Mileena was killed by D'Vorah but what if Mileena's ending could be somewhat cannon? So for me I cannot have one without the other, it just feels incomplete.

I feel the same way about Reptile. He is a very popular character and he is the only missing fighter other than Goro from the original game not playable in MK11. He's been in almost every game that both Scorpion and Sub-Zero has appeared in since his playable debut in MKII and even non-playable debut in the original game. The original MK3 and Deception are the only games in which Reptile does not appear unless you count Deception's Konquest mode. So again just like Kitana and Mileena should be in the game together I believe if Sub-Zero and Scorpion are in the same game together Reptile also needs to be included. Maybe that is why Reptile wasn't in the original MK3. There was no Scorpion in MK3, it wasn't until its update that he and Reptile appeared. So it sort of makes sense.

Good ol' MK5.ORG..............

Anyway. I love Mileena. She's my #2 in MKX.

I don't understand why people are so upset Mileena is not in MK11. I basically accepted this fact when D'Vorah killed her in story mode. That was NRS telling everyone "hey don't expect her back until MK12." Deal with it... just like I dealt with Noob and Jade's absence in MKX.

MKDA did fine without Mileena in it. MKD did fine without Kitana in it. They don't ALWAYS have to be attached to the hip with the same god damn story line about each other over and over and over again. Okay okay we get it! Warring twin sisters. Blah blah blah. I stopped giving a crap about that when MK9 destroyed (as in ruined) the old canon.
