Top 3 fighters you want back (besides obvious fighters)
12/27/2018 05:49 AM EST

Who do you want to return for MK11? There's so many faces we haven't seen in a while. Out of them, who is your top 3? (Besides the obvious returnees like scorpion, sub zero etc.)

1. Jade- easily my favorite female fighter in all of MK. From her moves to her story line, which I can't wait to see it evolve!

2. Havik- uhhh, just look at the dude. And he could play a big part with bringing another realm into the madness.

3. Kabal- this was really difficult. But I feel like Kabal could really be used well, especially those hook swords with all the new Gore technology. Seeing him as a revenant is pretty bad ass. I'd like to see the earthrealmers try and get him back .

What do y'all think?

1) Frost - My favorite new character of the DA, D, A games, infact one of the very few new characters of that era that I liked at all. I'd be fine with her just being an alternate skin for Sub-Zero, though I'd prefer her to be a full character.

2) Fujin - With Raiden going dark again we need another God to stand up to him.

3) Khameleon - I've always found her and her male counterpart interesting, and she could open up some more interesting plot lines for Reptile.

1. khameleon

2. blaze ( reinvented)

3. nimbus ( why not we need someone new from the original titles)

There you go, finding a hidden advantage in an unfortunate circumstance; using pain to take you to the next level. Those are the things that turn players into kings.

I think people like Shang Tsung, Jade, Smoke, Noob Saibot, and Sindel are more obvious candidates for returnees so here are my top 3 picks for less obvious ones:

1) Kabal

2) Nightwolf

3) Sheeva

Baraka - I'm a Reptile fan, so my love of jobbers knows no end! But honestly my interest in Baraka was reignited during MK:D with that TV trailer with him and Mileena and just the way his primary costume looked in that game was fantastic! Supposedly Mileena is sitting out the base roster of MK11 so he could rep Tarkatans

Fujin - Amazing untapped potential, could be a great ying to Dark Raiden's yang plus he made a cameo in MKX story

Hotaru - More untapped potential if his concept is cleaned up and brought up to par aswell as fleshing out his back story a bit could be the PERFECT foil to Havik being included in MK11

In no particular order...

  • Shang Tsung- Ermac’s MKX ending was super hype and I’d really like to see how he actually returns and what his role would be in all the time bending shenanigans. Plus I’ve always felt pretty raw about how one of the greatest villains in MK lore just got straight up used like a fucking 9 volt battery to supercharge another character.
  • Havik- As stated by another user, this Storyline is tailor fucking made for Havik. If he doesn’t make it back in this game, I’ll have lost hope of ever seeing him again. And also...needs more Havik.
  • Noob Saibot- MKX had some really great lore tid bits scattered around the game. One of them being Bo Rai Cho telling Sub Zero that it was his belief that his brother still existed and that he should remain unfound. That single statement really brings to life just how much of a threat he could be and really solidified my desire to see him return.

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

1. Baraka. He's still alive to me, damnit.

2. Shang Tsung. Always been a Shang guy. Hope he finally takes back his place as a main villain.

3. Nitara. Such a great design and interesting character they can make even better with the right amount of time and resources. Skarlet wasn't doing it for me.

Shao Kahn did nothing wrong

Sareena - Deserves and outing in a main game and to be developed further (dont really count MKArmageddon as it was a trilogy type thing).

Khameleon - I'd really love to see Khameleon with her own story, moveset, fatalities and for her to be fleshed out.

Nitara - A one hit wonder (discouting MKA) who deserves another chance.

Frost: Would be really cool to see her clash with Sub-Zero in this timeline. We got a small glimpse of it in MKX and I'd love to see more of it in MK11.

Hotaru: Havik is HOT in terms of fan hopes and anticipation for MK11. If he were to make the cut, I think Hotaru should be somewhere in the picture as well to represent the Seido side of things in the lore. He already has a badass costume design, all they would need to do is work on his gameplay side of things and I think he could potentially come out awesome. Definitely deserves another go IMO.

Sareena: Man there's so much potential for her that if she doesn't make the cut, I'll be really sad lol Only thing with Sareena, is that now with Quan Chi dead, theres going to be some missed opportunities to see her interact with Quan Chi after being freed from him by Bi Han (perhaps a flashback scene would be cool for something like this.) On the flip side of that, having her involved with Noob would be really awesome to see in the story, as well.

Thanks for the sig MINION!

Onaga - Always loved his design and story of how he was betrayed by Shao Kahn.

Havik - Badass character. Nuff said.

Hsu Hao - Just kidding...

Baraka - Since his debut in MK2 he's always been one of my favorites. I hope he makes a return!

Kabal: He has to come back. He is too unique in the design department especially for a game that caters to customization. I would love to make him look like Darth Vader fused with Darth Maul or something like that.

Fujin: I want to see Kabal vs Fujin dialogue. Speed Vs Wind.. I'm tired of Raiden and his shenanigans.

Rain: Despite Boon giving him a hard time he was in MKX's story mode. I strongly believe he will be a popular pick if he is on the launch roster.

He's still alive to me, damnit.

F

Kabal, Havik, and Sindel for me. Also Nightwolf, because I can't choose only 3.

1) Onaga - I want to see the main boss of Deception updated with today's tech. I can't imagine how bad ass he would look with modern graphics!

2) Havik - Seems like a big fan favorite, can't say I disagree. Cool look and cool concept. I want me some Havik in MK11.

3) Reiko - I've always liked this character since MK4. His look, his move set, his back story. I think it's time for his return.

4) Sareena - It's a top 3, but I had to add her. Like Fujin, she was teased in MKX story mode, but not playable. I fully expect Fujin will be playable in MK11, that's why he's not on my list. Time for Sareena to have her time to shine.

1. Baraka. He's still alive to me, damnit.

With the multiple timelines thing I wouldn't even be worried about any of the "dead" characters missing the cut because of that.

My top 3 would be:

1. Sonya Blade

2. Kenshi

3. Jax

1. Sareena: She has so much potential on so many levels. A story involving her and Noob could be really compelling, as well as expanding on being a sort of double agent. She’s a demon, so she could work for Liu Kang / Kitana, but she seems to have ties to the good guys as well. Also, being a demon, I really want to see a movelist that revolves around both ninja-like moves and more monstrous, demonic moves, maybe even shape shifting in to something more monstrous?

2. Fujin: Now is the PERFECT time for him. With Raiden going dark, I’d love to see Earth’s alliegences split, with Raiden and his allies preemptively striking Outworld and the Netherealm and Fujin and his allies advocating defense, diplomacy with Outworld, and not spreading ourselves to thin or becoming that which you’re fighting against. This could create some alliances and enemies as well. Plus, I really want to see what they could do with his movelist.

3. Kai: I just think he has way too much potential to leave out. 2D games like Martial Masters have shown that you can have cool fighting styles on this plane. Kai could have some awesome capoeira moves and combos and I’d love to see that. Plus, being a chosen one type of character and White Lotus member could really give them a good option for the good guys and an interesting foil for both Cassie Cage, who’s less of a traditional chosen one due to not being a monk and her attitude and humor and all that, and Liu Kang who is a traditional monk but also the ruler of the Netherealm.

4. Reiko, Karlet and Havik: Still wanted to mention these three. They were absolute standouts in the comic, which shows me they have a ton of potential. Also, as others have said, a chaotic story really plays in to Havik’s strengths. Let’s see these wildcards in MK11 as their own sort of Outworld faction. Maybe they bring Dvorah to their side, perhaps a new Tarkatan leader and the Tarkatan horde and give Outworld a divided situation like what Earth could face with Raiden and Fujin and their respective allies.

Besides Reptile, id like:

Havik - Long overdue return of this deranged character.

Rain - My second favorite ninja, so much potential in terms of gameplay & spectacle that has been barely touched.

Noob-Saibot - I picture a further corrupted / leaking / melting version of noob this time around. Almost like how the Venom symbiote behaves. Giving him the ability to shape-shift limbs and become almost liquid-ish.
