Haha, AND TWINS!

Well, maybe not quite THOSE twins. But it seems that Mileena (at least at this early point) is being the "poster girl" for this game. And that's cool. I'm very excited to see how she plays.

I suppose it really doesn't matter if Kitana and Mileena look exactly alike but considering Mileena's goal is constantly to kill and than replace Kitana...

I mean if you can clearly tell the difference how are you going to impersonate her?

She wore the same obviously-not-blue clothes she always wears and her veil was see-thru in Deception and Kitana's entire army, including Bo' Rai Cho, fell for it anyway.

I really, really don't think anyone's gonna notice yellow eyes.

This is true.

I guess I assumed that she changed into a more Kitana-esque outfit and that Mileena dressing like Mileena was a developer oversight.

Seriously, would YOU be looking at her face?


And even then, who wants to be the guy to go, "um, we can totally see the princess's thong-clad butt from here..." "Say something." "No, YOU say something."

Plus she had the knowledge that everybody thought she was dead [its even stated in her deception ending] working in her favor. How they didn't see her huge teeth under that transparent veil is beyond me [Unless they're really not that huge and are just drawn that huge for fan service]
Why couldn't this ending have happened?

I don't remember seeing them so I'm asking here, does Mileena use her sai in combat like Kitana uses her fans?

I don't recall ever seeing them outside of the special attack.

She probably does but I don't think there's many videos around that show off her normal moves much, I'm guessing the Sais will play a big part of her fightin style as the other characters use their weapons/trademarks in their normal moves and combos.

@jmurf22
So Mileena has been announced as the first official female on the roster like MK Deception she has featured quite heavily in the showcasing of the game. But what would you like to see from Mileena in this and future games?

First things first it appears that after years and years of the same moves Mileena is finally getting a few new special moves. They are (apparently ) as follows:

Face Gnaw: Mileena leaps onto her opponents chest and begins eating away their face. Two variations are she will either jump off or jump off with a kick.

Backstabber: Mileena leaps into the air and lands on top of her opponent, lodging her sais into her foes back.

And a variation on her traditional ripping the head off Fatality. MK2 is when we met her and now we get some new special moves. I always thought Mileena's moves suited her though I often thought she could employ her teeth and sai's a little more while in battle and it seems we are getting that. Since Mileena's return in MK:D I've found her movset to really complement itself the speed and the flow of her moves feel very natural.

The outfit we've seen is very much the same as the Alt MK:D costume, the tiny pink number ( she deserves to be champion on the basis of being able to fight in that!) I hope her other costume is less revealing, Yes that kinda attire suits Mileena's character but I don't think she needs to be quite that nude. I liked her MK:D first costume to was unique and funky with the long trail at the back. Oh yeah and her eyes appear to be almost catlike now, Mileena's eyes are one of the most inconsistent things with MK one day white, one day yellow...Perhaps she just has a selection of contact lenses at her disposal. And her teeth continue to get smaller. I think she's looking pretty cool from what we've seen of her so far I think the purple/pink mist(?) that appears when she jumps and rolls around is pretty cool looking. It nice to see some updates for the old girl.

As for story I don't really expect too much change from Mileena and Kitana's story in this upcoming game. If there are changes I think that maybe Kitana won't kill Mileena this time around? I have no definite ideas on what mite be different in their story this time around. It's an epic and it'll be amazing to play through it all again with current tech but I can't lie it would be cool to see maybe a twist or two, Perhaps you guys have some ideas about what'll change with that? Maybe they'll expand on Mileena and Baraka's dealings during that time..ah I dunno I'm stabbing in the dark.

When it comes to future games I think it's high time Mileena was separated from Kitana to a greater extent. The whole evil twin thing was wicked but lets be honest how many more times can we play through as Mileena and get pretty much the same story spewed at you? Her MK;D ending shows that despite having to pose as Kitana she has the skills to command an army. In this ending there were signs that Mileena wanted to be Mileena and not Kitana as it says that she wanted to reveal who she was, this of course didn't happen and wouldn't have worked however beyond that it shows that Mileena is developing into more of an individual ( However MK:A shot that to shit when they swapped the faces and I assume Mileena became Kitana? Though not canon.) Obviously her and Kitana will always be connected no matter what happens but I think Mileena could do a little more. It's no secret that Mileena is my favourite but I'm not blind to the facts, Mileena isn't a massive character within the grand parts of the stories but I fear if they continue to give her the same circle of events then she will go from a popular character to a redundant one. She'll never be a massive powerful force but she's been the MK evil bitch for years now, the first female villain I'd like a breath of fresh air regarding her story. This isn't a pressing issue at the moment but I think in the next few games ( assuming she isn't killed off or something) things will need to change with her to keep her status as strong side character. I have few ideas off the top of my head:

- Perhaps expand on Mileena and Baraka in future? I don't mean make them the main villains or anything like that but they could becoming a team and with the Taraktan armies at their disposal they could be a strong weapon for whom ever would want their services, making them a thorn in everyone's side.

- Then we have the fact that she is Shao Kahn's "true daughter" she was brought up with Kitana surely she would have some influence and maybe even consider herself the rightful heir to the Outworld throne. And her being made from a Princess, brought up by an Emperor Mileena will likely never stop until she has the status she deserves.

So what do you guys think could be done to expand on Mileena's story? Maybe you all want her to stay as she is? She's has some good exposure over the last few games and I'd like to see that continue.

Yeah this thread is nearly a decade old but I don't care, you and I are on the same page. I'm a big Mileena fan and the thing I've wanted the most is for her to get the fuck away from Kitana since I believe it stunted and limited her growth as a character. My ideal scenario is that after MK4 Mileena decides she is done with Kitana and wants nothing to do with her. Think about it in MK2 she killed her and got sent to Netheralm. We don't know anything about MK3 but you could assume that Kahn wanted the then mind controlled Sindel to bond with her fake daughter but when Kitana manages to free her mind Sindel rejects her and they both double team her. Then in MK4 she tries again and fails and this time gets a very cold hearted speech from Kitana and then gets dropped down a well. I would have her realize that she can't defeat Kitana so she would want to distance herself from her and make her own life. I would have her take the throne of Outworld and her mission is to find and un merge all the realms Shao Kahn conquered as the ultimate payback for his treatment of her in the past. By this point he's dead and what better way to get revenge on the man that ruined you then by destroying his legacy? What do you think?
