Kitanas reaction to Mileena
04/21/2014 11:05 AM EDT
Does anyone here thinks that Kitana's reaction when she discovered Mileena and all those half-tarkatan clones was just harsh and judgemental? Mileena didn't even seem all that evil, and even considered Kitana her sister, but the latter rejected her. I can understand being horrified at first, but it's not like Mileena chose to exist, or to be considered by Shao Kahn as his true daughter. Kitana's reaction just reeked of bigotry to me. Like, the fact that Mileena was created through magic, and was half-tarkatan, made her invalid as a living being.

You should see Kitana's ending.

Still, it is not really a fault of Kitana's that she is repulsed by a being cloned with her blood against her will.

Yes, Mileena never asked to be created, but that doesn't mean Kitana is obligated to accept her. Again, though, you should see her ending.

Are you serious right now? Is this a serious point you're trying to make?

If I remember the line correctly, Mileena was being facetious. She was mocking Kitana.

Though Mileena doesn't share in the guilt of being an abomination... she's still an abomination. She's something that shouldn't exist but does due to evil practices/motives. You're right that it's not her fault, but no one can say Mileena made a strong case for herself.

You gotta put yourself in Kitana's shoes. First off, she just found out her biological identity had been robbed from her. That's already all sorts of messed up. On top of that, Mileena had Tarkatan features. Tarkatan genealogy traces back in into the Netherrealm. With that mind, Kitana was basically looking at her own image infused with demonic features. Also, this was all done in secret. In addition to discovering Mileena, she discovered Shang was conspiring against her. Her reaction makes perfect sense for someone who just realized their life was in danger.

Well how would you react if you saw a demonic clone of yourself? I don't think you would rush to welcome them with open arms.

Not to mention, when Mileena was talking to her sister, she was basically mocking her the entire time, so it's not like she was being oh-so pleased to see Kitana right there.

Her reaction to seeing this would probably how anyone would react if they saw this themselves. So no, I don't think she was being harsh and judgmental, I think she was acting how everyone else would react if they saw this themselves.

Maybe it was judgemental, but it was correct.

Prove: She kills pepole, but Ripping off there heads, and eating it, unless it's a guest character.

Extra Prove: If you don't do a fatality but win as her, she eats you.

That is all. grin

It kinda DOES. At the risk of sounding racist against the genetically engineered...Clones aren't people, lol.

And Tarkatans are what a Dungeons and Dragons handbook would refer to as "Always Neutral Evil", as in they're not intelligent enough to choose their own morals, they're born and bred bad. Whether a person who's part-Tarkatan has the potential to be more is actually a question worth asking.
