My impression of her is she is pretty fast overall, but I find most of her specials seem to have some delay to them. I'm really liking her Make it Rain fatality, 2nd or 3rd best fatality in the game IMO.

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"


lol cant blame ya..i did the same thing...1st round i flawless'd shao kahn cause skarlet is way too fast foir him to keep up xD and then 2nd ropund he and i were both down to just a sliver of health and i meant to throw a dagger and accidentally did the blood ball i was just like "NOOOO! :("

Only had time for about twenty minutes of practice yesterday, but she's fun. Some of the combos people have found using her that require no meter are just damn wrong, so she's going to need some adjusting, and I'm thinking a damage nerf in the near future.

That blood ball seems to come out accidentally too often. I gotta watch my fingers.

I'm disappointed she's another one of Kahn's minions (how many top-level ultra-skilled stealthy assassins is his army composed of? Fully half at this point, it seems). Was hoping she'd foreshadow the Netherealm invasion. My only gripe so far.

Babality is adorable and wrong. Also, props to the mention of Erzabet Bathory in her Fatality trainer; I appreciate it when they're up front about their inspirations.

Been wanting to see this rumor made real since MKII. I for one welcome our new resident 'red ninja girl'.

I was just playing a 2v2 match and my opponent was using a Jade/Skarlet Team. I was about to win when my opponent did Skarlet's Blood ball attack with very little health. It was really funny seeing her stab herself and then lose the match.

Just wanted to share that with you guys because I tought it was hilarious. Skarlet's fun btw.

Seriously? Shouldn't they be nerfing characters who have had the reputation of being OD spammy instead?

My brother to my surprise actually bought her and I came home from work and he's like "guess what the best team is" It's apparently Skarlet and Shang Tsung (who knew?)

I said I would keep an open mind for her gameplay


I will say her gameplay is fine and she's fast, but overall not really interested in playing as her though, I had a ladder run and stuff with her, she's just not my cup of tea. My overall thoughts on Skarlet as a package deal in a general sense(gameplay, design, story etc.) is meh, though many seem to really enjoy her which is great and I'm happy they have a new character to brawl it out with and more females are welcome


Funny moment I had fighting Shang Tsung on the ladder, I picked Stryker and was doing pretty well and he morphed into Skarlet and started throwing the blood ball twice and I blocked it both times and when they said "Finish her"

I was like "da hell? I didn't even touch him" Then I realized what happened and lol'd.

Wow, you really gotta compare Skarlet (whom is female), to male characters. Shameful!

Indeed if we do get Tanya in August, she's gonna be more kickass than Skarlet! As of now, I don't have Skarlet but, I will soon and using her as my puching bag.

P.S. At least ur CANADIAN, eh?!

Um... you might want to stop where you're heading with the Canadian thing before you start something you wish you didn't.


Anyways, I'm probably going to buy this character over the weekend. Didn't have any time to do so this week... Though by reading majority of the comments, I guess she's a fun character. Might want to check it out.

Everytime people mention something about Canada or about being Canadian, I can't stop thinking about the TV show "How I met your mother". XD Good times...

Just a question. Why post MK4 and not MK3?

Post MK3 Characters Iike:

Tanya
Kai
Jarek
Hsu Hao
Kenshi
Havik
Li Mei
Sareena
Nitara

Those are some of them off the top of my mind. However, you like who you like and yes, Skarlet is cool. She's getting so much attention 'cause it's her first MK, which I can deal with.

Felt like asking it for no apparent reason. glasses

Personally I like all the character introduced in MK4

Quan Chi
Shinnok
Tanya
Kai
Reiko
Fujin

Jarek is the only one who was bleh, but i actually liked Jarek in MKA, The lasso was pretty cool and unique.

Also I understand every says Post MK3 because it was the end of the 2d era in MK. But I felt MK4/gold was still a good game(n64 as a whole rocked), Deadly Alliance was the game that started the slippery downward slope.

Boring design, gameplay style should've went to Sareena, wasted spot, should never make another appearance etc.

I believe they did well with skarlet, she is very fast and i am sure once people get use to her, she is gonna be one combo spamming femme fatal.

The only question I have about here is her special move where she throws a ball of blood that drains health from her. How does that work to her benefit, if she is losing health and hitting the other person with it? Does that blood start to drain health on the opponent slowing or is it just a regular projectile hit?

Because I just dont get the idea of reducing your own health for a mere projectile hit. I rather just use the other projectiles that dont require costing me my health bar reduction.

I never use that projectile. Sure, it does a lot of damage (15%), but it's too risky.

If it's blocked, you just pissed away 7% of your life. And if you accidentally do it when you're weak, you can risk K.O.-ing yourself.
Besides, it arcs up and it's kind of slow.

I agree that the Blood Ball is rather useless. It's a neat idea, but it just doesn't do enough to be worth using. NRS said it would be worth it, but I really don't see it.
