I had a Skarlet fail yesterday.

I was fighting Shao Kahn, I was almost dead, he was almost dead, I decided to end him with a blood ball. That back fired and killed me. Then Shao Kahn responded with a "You Suck" and I was like "Yeah, I agree"

The Blood Ball isn't really worth using against Kahn-
it damages *you* almost as much as it does him.

The Kunai Throw is a better option,
or better yet, jump backwards>blood drop.
That simple trick hits the CPU almost every time wink

You can kunai throw his ass to death with ease. Normally, you can knock him out of throwing the harpoon, but you still have to jump that goddamn hammer.

Almost got a double flawless on him, spamming those knives. smile

so what is the final verdict on Skarlet, I am dying to try her as soon as I can.

you can use this for discussions on all things Skarlet.


she is definately the most skill based kharakter in the game. she takes ALOT of getting used to as her play style differs vastly from every other kharakter. but once you have gotten a hold of how to use her, she is easily one of the best

I absolutely love Skarlet. I've been owning with her online all night and day. I've had 20 wins in a row with her last I checked and mostly everytime I've lost, it's come down to the wire and hasn't been a blow-out. I believe I've found my new main (at least until July; KENSHI!!!)

LOL I can tell your favorite character is Kenshi

I am literally dying to use rain, I really like his look in this game.

I am probably going switching my play style a lot in this installment, first skarlet, then rain.

I know what you mean.

I have mad respect for Skarlet, but I don't plan on spending much time with her-
her gameplay is best suited to those who want to main her,
as it's difficult for a casual fan like myself to put her to proper use without a *lot* of practice,
and I'd rather spend that time on Kitana, Smoke, Ermac, Reptile, and RAIN!

Believe it or not, I actually bought her. Apparently I had 2800 MS points sitting around, and decided to get the season pass.

She's fast, seems really easy to play. My sister will like her.

I have a new punching bag at least. Hate.

Gameplay - Love it!
Appearance - Meh...But god damn is she annoying sounding. Even worse than Liu Kang.

I'm definitely gonna make my tag team Kabal/Skarlet for the time being until either Kenshi comes out, or I get better with someone else.
There is no knowledge that is not power.

I think they use the same scream in both cases.
It reminds me of Judge Doom from the end of Roger Rabbit (or the melting Wicked Witch) wink

I love her. She's my third favourite female (after Mileena and Jade).

However, what's up with her inconsistency? Hit her and she sounds like a singular person but when she dies at hands of Kintaro and he flings her up in the air she comes down sounding like a bunch of people mixed into one.

What Kitana said^. Also, I love her enhanced blood drop/telekunaithingy. Reminds me of Mileena's neck bite/sai stab.
MK9 Top 5: Mileena, Sheeva, Stryker, Sindel, Skarlet.

She is great, lots of fun to play, some ridiculous combos already. Awesome babality lol and fatalities. All they have to do is get rid of her bikini top for somthing else and her "look" will be infinatly better. Love her hair though, that black highlight makes it so cool. The thing that blew me away was the number of combo strings she has. I think she has the most in the game.

Kinda bummed out about the alternate costume not being there, but maybe Ed or NRS will tell us why it isnt there. Or maybe it is a unlockable who knows.

Also haters gonna hate, screw them we like skarlet. Shes better than most post Mk4 characters. Cobra lol, Darrius lol, Mokap lol, etc.

Now I'm even sadder that we haven't gotten her in Europe yet.
I'm a patient man, but seeing all you people who make these really nice comments about Skarlet makes me quite envious, to be honest.
