Any chances for characters from MKDA-MKA?
08/19/2014 12:32 PM EST
Any hopes for those of Deadly Alliance to Armageddon to survive? And why?

So far Kenshi who appeared as a DLC, may have a chance to be a part of the roster.

Mavado, Drahmin & Moloch are dead. Hsu Hao's gone too since Kano took his cyberheart.

What about....

MKDA:
- Bo'Rai Cho
- Li Mei
- Nitara
- Frost

MKD:
- Shujinko
- Ashrah
- Hotaru
- Dairou
- Darrius
- Havik
- Kira
- Kobra
- Onaga

MKA:
- Sareena
- Fujin
- Jarek
- Kai
- Shinnok
- Taven
- Daegon

The only people from that list that I'd like to come back are Bo' Rai Cho, Nitara, Ashrah and Havik.

Give them some cameo's but stay off my roster. I am hoping for a big change of direction with mkx. I DONT want to know the story before it happens, I only want hints and allusions to the past timeline.

And I personally think this is the way NRS see's it as well.

That all being said.. I would love it if kenshi and Havik made it in the roster. But would gladly let them slide for the chance at a fully new mk.

It's funny you include MK: A but forget about Taven and Daegon

Does anyone really want those two back?

Bo Rai Cho? Most likely
Li Mei? Maybe
Nitara? Hopefully
Frost? 50/50

Shujinko? Hopefully not.
Ashrah? Eh.
Hotaru? Eh.
Dairou? Hope not.
Darrius? Hope not.
Havik? Hopefully
Kira? Fuck off Sonya & Kano's crack baby
Kobra? Fuck off you Ken ripoff
Onaga? I do not know.

Bo Rai Cho: I don't see him playable. He can make a cameo appearance in story mode.
Li Mei: She has great potential. Would love to see her return and be playable.
Nitara: She is best forgotten
Frost: same as Nitara
Shujinko: great character who needs to at least make an important cameo appearance.
Ashrah: Don't care about her.
Dairou and Darrius: same as Ashrah
Havik: he and Kenshi are probably the most liked MKDA-MKD characters, so he has decent chance.
Kira and Kobra: same as Ashrah
Onaga: My favourite boss so far. Needs to return.
Kenshi: even though he was DLC in MK9, his chances are still high.
Sareena: Same as Nitara.
Taven and Daegon: great characters IMO. Would love to see them return.

To you perhaps. But for me they are two of my favourite MK4-MKA char along with Li Mei, Shujinko, Kenshi and Onaga.
I would prefer them over overrated characters like Reiko, Fujin or Sareena.
I kinda feel like I'm their only big supporter

Shinnok was the boss in MK4 But I really want him to return along with:
Tanya
Quan Chi
Fujin

I would want
Bo'Rai Cho
Havik
Blaze MKDA
Taven My sons name :)

On here probably but everyone is a fan of something right?
Personally I hated them both.

I was kinda ticked off at Daegon even being in MK9 by way of cameo. Yes that small cameo irritated me.

No MK4? Instead you put them in with the new characters in MKA? That's a big NO NO! Fujin, Jarek, Kai and Shinnok made their debuts in MK4, not in MKA.
Where in the heck are Tanya and Reiko? There a reason that they are not in your list...?

As for chances, Shinnok is a given.

Others:

MK4: Tanya and Fujin are most probable.
MKDA: Bo Rai Cho and Li Mei
MKD: Havik and Shujinko or Ashrah
MKA: Sareena

I would even accept MKDA Blaze over Taven and Daegon.

*Btw, Kano does not have a cybernetic heart, as the inserts are interchangeable for the mechanism, which are only associated for his variations. Also, he does not use it as a laser like Hsu Hao did.

Granted this is highly subjective:
MKDA:
Bo'Rai Cho --> shocked if does not appear in cameo(s)
Li Mei --> intro to MK highly dependent on deadly alliance but with Tsung dead, origin story would drastically change so I'm leaning toward no.
Nitara --> Please God nooooo!!!!
Frost --> Interesting prospect but superfluous
Kenshi --> Hope so
Mavado --> Maybe cameo, hopefully not
Drahmin --> Boon hates him so no
Moloch --> could be interesting but appearance highly dependent on DA
Hsu Hao --> highly, highly doubt it (perhaps a cameo if Kano got his heart implant "directly" from him)

MKD:
Shujinko --> hopefully reimagined in some way
Ashrah --> dull and forgettable with virtually no impact on story (could feature if part of story focuses on Shinnok and Netherrealm invasion)
Hotaru --> hopefully
Dairou --> doubt it but wouldn't mind if story fleshed out a bit more
Darrius --> highly doubt it but also wouldn't mind if redesigned and story fleshed out
Havik --> hopefully, could play a part in some Netherrealm plot (i.e. Noob's MK9 ending)
Kira --> See Nitara
Kobra --> See Nitara
Onaga --> Cameo for sure, quick resolution this time

MKA:
Sareena --> doubt it but could appear in some Netherrealm plot
Fujin --> I hesitate to say yes, does not seem to have much support from devs.
Jarek --> not necessary with Kano still around
Kai --> hopefully, could be trained by Liu Kang to be hostile toward Raiden this time
Shinnok --> he'd better be in especially after MK9 storymode ending
Taven --> don't think so, story dependent on Armageddon
Daegon --> see Taven (though if Red Dragon appears he could still be around)

I honestly only see, Reiko, Kenshi, Shinnok, Quan Chi, Fujin, Havik (pretty slim chance though). That makes 10 returning vets, with only about 4 more to spare for space because of the half or more new characters. This roster is really going down to the wire with favorites.

I have Kano, now all I need is Shinnok, then I will be set. However, if Shinnok is the boss and unplayable....I'll take Quan Chi in his place.

Overall and all in seriousness, I'll accept whoever we get.

I think Tanya, Fujin and Kenshi are likely, Havik and Li Mei possible, and the rest are unlikely.

I would love to know why people think Ashrah has any sort of chance at coming back. If there was ever a consideration for disposable characters, Ashrah's top billing in that regard.

There's still hope for some that the story will make the teaser at the end of MK9 significant and have Shinnok and the Netherealm actually be important rather than having the MK4 references defeated and wrapped up in the first fifteen minutes of story mode and immediately shifting focus to the adventures of Outworlders fighting over Kahn's throne.

And the Netherealm cast is fairly small. Ashrah, as a former henchman of Quan Chi who turns against him and goes on a demon-slaying crusade with a magic sword that's turning her into an angel, is one of the few names in that stable with any amount of dimension to her personality or backstory.

Add the fact that the sword is tricking her into killing a whole race makes it all more intersting.

So in the end is she becoming good? Does the slaughtering of a race who just wants to live make her a good person?

I like to think that the sword is tricking her, making her think she's becoming good, but in the end she'll end up in the place she started.

But I guess she doesn't have much to add in the MK:X story. Unless she's in the brotherhood at the beginning of Shinnoks invasion and finds the sword later on, starting her "cleansing" journey.

I'd replace Havik with Tanya, but it seems to be an even split of people who want one or the other. Havik they could make cool, Tanya..she bores me for some reason. She's even sporting my favorite color yellow, but she does nothing for me. I'd love to see what they do with her, but I don't see her returning.
