Which fallen heroes do you see coming back next game?
11/09/2015 02:49 PM EST
In MKX, Jax & Sub-Zero (Kuai Liang) were brought back to life.

Shame that Liu's, Kung Lao's & Kitana's living selves were just costumes, and not brought back good again.

Is there anyone who all see can be brought back for real next game?

We have...

- Stryker
- Kabal
- Nightwolf
- Sindel
&
- Smoke

Even Jade's missing.

Jade. She is still MIA. Idk what they have in mind, but her noticeable absence is fishy, especially since she wasn't even seen in Quan Chi's Revenant gang.

His soul is completely enslaved by Quan Chi. He doesn't have the free will to do so. Nightwolf is a strong shaman, but Quan Chi is stronger.

As for OP, I'd want Kabal, Smoke, Jade and Nightwolf.

I can picture Nightwolf being brought back. We got...

Cassie (Johnny & Sonya)
Jacqui (Jax)
Takeda (Kenshi)
&
Kung Jin (Kung Lao)

Nightwolf should have like a niece or a nephew save him.

Kung Lao can be brought back for real this time! Jin should sit this one out.

Jade's disappearance should explain too!

I think Kung lao will get restored like his and Kung jins ending elude too but I think it will happen off screen and Lao won't be in the next game i think (and hope) they will say something like "after being restored he sought out solitude to process whatbhappened to him blah blah blah and we never see him again.

Liu kang and kitana will stay evil they are really owning that after MkX.

Jade and smoke I don't know but I think they will be back some way jade I have no idea. Hopefully with smoke he is back as evil and somehow teams up with noob again or sub zero goes on a quest to try and restore him to human and we see the sub/smoke bromance from MK9.

As for the others I think and hope they stay as background npcs or disappear all together to make room for some new bad guys or some 3D era bad guys.

I just wish Noob Saibot would return and he'll use Smoke to help him claim the Netherrealm throne.

I can picture Nightwolf having a niece or nephew bring him back and he'll formulate a plan with Fujin on how to bring the other revenants back to the good side. Liu & Kitana will be hard.

Why didn't any of the noobs die? Did they even get hurt?

Liu Kang and Kitana because they are now the most prominent Netherrealm characters, being the new rulers. Kung Lao because he one of the most iconic and well-known Mortal Kombat characters.

There's nothing to heal from. Quan Chi showed him the truth. It was Raiden's and the Elder Gods' lies that were preventing him from seeing the truth.
They're the real bad guys. grin
The Revenants are now free of any mind control. Unfortunately, the Earthrealm champions still follow Gods who send human souls to Hell for eternal torment. Who's blinded here?

You see, it's just a matter of perception.

The revenants aren't mind controlled. Their souls are corrupted then put in a new body. They're still corrupted and hating/blaming Raiden for their death and current situation. Quan Chi no longer guides them so they do what they want, but they're not "freed". They just dwell on the negativity within them.

It took a mix of Quan Chi's magic and Raiden's powers to cleanse the soul of Sub-Zero, Scorpion and Jax. They think they can't save them without Quan Chi but I'm sure they'll find a way.

I have no doubt Kung Lao will be good in Xi. I have no problem believing Kung Jin will use the magic/purity/light of the White Lotus to help Kung Lao come back to the good side as seen in their endings.

I think the rest can be saved and if they are will probably forgive Raiden and understand why he did what he did.

Liu Kang is the only one who was ready to fight Raiden before dying. I could see Liu Kang being the last one saved, and abandonning Raiden for Edenia.

If it wasn't for Kung Jin's arrows, Torr would have pummeled Cassie, Jackie and Takeda. Sub-Zero saved them all at the last second from Kotal Kahn's army. Takeda and Jacqui held off Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Smoke, Kitana and Sindel by pretty much getting their ass kicked around.

Perhaps they can revive Kung Lao by Kung Jin. If they did, perhaps Jin will stay with Lao until he's ready to fight again after all he's suffered in the Netherrealm.

Kitana? Perhaps Jade will reach into her mind to get her to leave Liu Kang's side and come back to the living again. Due to the Mournful variation, this is a chance to use it in story mode.

But I picture Nightwolf being revived first. And he'll formulate a plan to revive all the others bit by bit.

Smoke will be joining Noob to overthrow Liu from the throne and he'll take over.

Liu Kang will be the last one to be revived. I can picture Cassie fighting him trying to knock some senses into him in getting to forgive and forget all that's happened between him and Raiden.

Smoke wont be joining Noob again. Nether Realm did a good job giving him a new story to follow with the Enenra. They aren't going to rehash the exact same story. Smoke has outgrown Noob.

That being said My Prediction is that Smoke and Jade are the ones I see coming back. Night Wolf as well. Jade is a fan favorite and it was odd they did nothing with her in this game. She will probably come back possessed as some one else like her MK2011 ending.

I tend to think that the fallen heroes will have a substantial role to play in the next game, where some seemed like background characters than anything else in MKX, even if they were on the main roster (Liu Kang, Kitana and Kung Lao especially).

I feel like they used MKX to set these characters up for prominent roles in the next game. I think Outworld will be largely disregarded, or at the very least relegated to a minimal side story. Mileena's dead, D'Vorah was a traitor. I could see Ermac sitting the next one out. Maybe even Kotal Khan. Only way I see Outworld playing a role is if Shang Tsung returns and if he does, he'll be more of a main plot focus.

I also think the Special Forces gets marginalized. One or both of Cage/Sonya takes a game off along with Jax and possibly Kenshi. Guessing the kids grow up a bit. They could all make the next one, but if one misses the cut, my guess is Kung Jin.

Add Quan Chi and Shinnok to the "likely not returning" list and there will be a lot of roster turnover. I see seven new characters, plus the return of Smoke, Nightwolf, Kabal and maybe even Stryker to help fill out the ranks of Liu Kang / Kitana / Kung Lao / Raiden's side.

Just my prediction, but my guess is that we'll see a substantial showdown between those eight, plus a few new characters and Fujin, Bo Rai Cho, Scorpion, Sub Zero, Cassie Cage, Takeda, Jaqui Briggs and a bit of a wild card in Shang Tsung.

Still debating what side Jade could return on, but I see her playing a big role.

That's be the main plotline, with other wild cards thrown in like Erron Black, Kano's son, perhaps Baraka, Reiko, a cyber ninja, Havik, Reptile,

If Nightwolf can be brought back, I can picture Kung Jin leaving the group for a while looking after his cousin whose been brought back to life.

Johnny, Sonya & Jax should retire and have new recruits take over.

"Kano's son" would never happen.

Kabal & Stryker will have to wait after MK11. Smoke & Jade can return. Jade's will be a FULL explanation of why she isn't with the others.

Kitana can be brought back too for real this time. If Jade's not coming back yet, she'll use the mournful variation.

Jade definitely has a shot at coming back. I picture her role being like this.

"Jade was resurrected by Quan Chi and served along his comrades, yet, during Shinnok's first invasion, Quan Chi ordered Jade to scout Outworld to establish an invasion there as well. She was discovered by a stranger, revealed to be a sorceress and offered Jade a chance to redeem herself. The revenant, unlike Kitana, was not happy with her life like that and accepted. During the events of MKX, she trained under the sorceress to fight the darkness inside her, she had freed herself from Quan Chi's control but she was still undead, the sorceress told her she would need to find a tome that contained the power of the Dragon King to resurrect the death so she could be resurrected along the others.

The Edenian revenant now works alone in Outworld searching for the tome, she has little to no contact with the remaining defenders of the realm but has found an enemy in the Edenian traitors Rain and Tanya.

She will eventually encounter Kenshi, Takeda, and Taven around a deceased Kung Jin, recently killed by a resurrected Shang Tsung, who has encountered the tome."

What do you all think?

*shrugs* all of them?
MKX has proven that the story doesn’t mean jack shit all to the roster so there is no reason they can’t put every single character in even if they are dead or alive. Or armless (Goro)

As a good/purified character. Same with Shang after Nightwolf prayer beamed himself n Sindel.

Role reversal to compliment evil Kang/Kitana/Dark Raiden/etc.. Maybe Sindel could be good in the future. I was kinda hoping Nightwolf's beam would purify her, but she became a revenant with Nightwolf cause Quan Chi claimed everyone who died. Except Jade somehow...

All, along with Sindel.

I hope Noob...well he will return along with Shang Tsung.

I also hope that Sonya, Jax, Johnny, Kano (even tho I like him), Reptile and Mileena don't return as playables, but used for Storymode purposes only.

I'd like to see the Vampyrus Nitara return along with a male vampire. * Just for clarification for of you's that don't know, "Vampyrus are winged (bat)" and "Vampires" aren't winged* There is a difference.
