Rumored DLC character to possibly have been leaked (potential spoiler)
03/15/2019 07:11 PM EST

Chameleon with 3 variations (Ermac, Human Smoke, Reptile) as Noob Saibot, Scorp and subby are in the game already with a rumored rain on the roster or as a hidden 4th variation like cyber sub zero was on triborg. This also counts as one character and leaves 5 more DLCs as the first kombat pack has 6 characters total and room for 3D era characters with almost the entire trilogy making the cast. Nightwolf has a score to settle with Noob saibot still so he is a strong possibility in the DLC kombat pack 1 as well.

1. Chameleon (ermac, smoke, reptile, rain).
2.Nightwolf
3.Spawn
4.???
5.???
6.???

Im ok with doing a kharacter like this but each variation has to have their own fatalities and customization options

I would take this over nothing but i would rather have these characters be separate DLC, but if it's this or nothing i will take it, just hope each "variation" is fleshed out more so than Triborg.

I know asking NRS to develop a character they never really gave a shit about would be naive, but if this "rumor" were true it wouldn't feel right. It's my understanding that Triborg was generally well received, but even then I wasn't into that kind of character (and here we are talking about folks that are far more popular than the cyborgs)

The game has custom variations so how would Chameleon have Ermac, Smoke and Reptile's moves in a variations when you can pick and choose? It would have worked in MKX because the variations were locked down but in MK11 the characters have a few special moves in the base version and then you pick your other special moves from a pool.

Firstly, I call BS. No source provided.

Secondly, if true, I also do not like these multi variation characters as well. It’s laziness on NRS’ part. What’s next? An old-man variation character that includes Shujinko, Shang and Bo Rai Cho? Because you know, they’re all old and should be clumped together. Stupid.

That's not the list that's been floating around so I wouldn't take too much stock in it. Chameleon, that is.

1. Sounds like fanfic based on wishful thinking.

2. Chameleon taking on moves from only the missing ninjas -- and skipping the two most prominent ones -- is not Chameleon.

3. Doesn't match what we know about the new variation system.

4. No thanks.

5. Nightwolf already settled his score with Noob Saibot when he threw him into that Soulnado.

Bonus: DID YOU KNOW that the idea for Chameleon's multi-ninja skillset (and perhaps his identity) was originally intended for Human Smoke?

What score to settle? I don't even remember Nightwolf and Noob interacting until literally the moment he kicks him into the Soulnado. And in that case, wouldn't it be Noob who has the score to settle?

Agreed, but to be fair here... as much as the leaked bios have already distorted the canon of the past two games, getting this part wrong isn't necessarily unbelievable.

By rumor you mean that you just literally made this up, right?

If that's true hope they never end up having Kitana, Mileena and Jade as a multi variation character in the future games.

It sounds fake and too dumb to be true - and seems to be an idea based on the MKX variation system, and wouldn't work in MK11.

I wouldn't want it to work in MK11 anyway. Those three characters are massively populary and deserve to have a full character slot to themselves. If the devs can't do these characters properly, and are just gonna toss them in for the sake of it, in such a ridiculous manner - they shouldn't do them at all.

I have to call BS, because Chameleon's shtick sounds too much like MKX.

What would make more sense is if he came with dozens of customization gear and special moves from all the other ninjas. Now, if he came with three default variations reminiscent of Ermac, Smoke, and Reptile, as a display of the customization, that would be more understandable.

I'm surprised its not all guest characters, to be honest.

But I'm with AgentK on this one. Bullshit without a source, plus variation characters are incredibly lazy and stupid.

I just heard it from someone so it probably was BS. It sounded like a cool concept but I rather they just realize an ultimate MK11 later on that has the ninjas like what they did with MK3 to be honest. This roster is god regardless especially with if it has shang, shao khan, and shinnok in the same roster

I am fine in principle with multi variation characters. It makes sense from a development standpoint & allows more characters to join the roster.

I take issue with the combined common moves though. It makes the multi var characters feel hollow. MK11 has unique character abilities strung into common combo strings which adds to the identity of that character. Combining smoke ermac and reptile into one combined common combo string does not make sense because all three of those characters have such unique abilities.

I think it it could be done if they lock each variation and do not allow customizing in the MK11 way. Like @xysion said, it doesn’t make sense for MK11 format.

I'd much rather they merge Khameleon/Chameleon into one character and give them the ability to shift their gender. Or basically just make Chameleon a skin for Khameleon.

Khameleon actually has potential outside of being a cool clone and I still believe she's the key to truly developing Reptile from useless grunt bitch to a powerful threat in his own right.
