Cripes, you guys are reading an Erron Black hint from a post about Red Velvet Oreos, just because he used the word "errand" to refer to a trip to the damn grocery store. Seriously -- read that sentence one more time, just to let it sink in how completely ludicrous this hint-hunting shit is becoming.

Who wears Red Velvet? Skarlet, sort of! And the bag says LIMITED EDITION. He's obviously talking about Skarlet being in the Kombat Pack!

Shit, mine actually makes more sense.

They also think it's an Erron hint because of the black fingernail

Thus Errand+black fingernail=Erron Black to some people
I'm not saying I'm one of them

I wouldn't refer to him as a cowboy.

Why in the hell should Skarlet be DLC again? If any reference to her, she should be on the main roster.

I'd love some Red Velvet Oreos right about now.

I'd also love for Erron Black and Skarlet to be playable in MKX.

Apparently I wasn't clear enough that I am making fun of all the ridiculous Twitter speculation that goes on. I am trying to prove that his tweet means nothing by demonstrating that it can mean anything, by applying the same kind of Da Vinci-decoder logic that everyone else uses. I shouldn't be surprised that you took me too seriously though, because damn, that Poe's law is a bitch.

Like I said in the Twitter thread, Boon is dead obvious when he is actually giving clues. He doesn't sneak secret messages into casual conversations that have a completely unrelated, non-MK context. Can't a man simply talk about Oreos on Twitter without getting his every syllable overanalyzed?

Erron Black : Taste the dust from my sawed off shotgun.
Ermac : We do not taste.
Erron Black : Now you will.

Someday people will stop writing intro dialogues on MKO. They are always, without fail, the most cringe inducing shit I have ever read

I think it'd be cooler if he was like Tekkens' Dragunov.

Very Rarely will he speak unless it's something extremely important, against someone extremely important or if he goes up against a hated rival/enemy, but other than that? Silence.

^ I hope so.

I'm going to bet that the next trailer will come out on Tuesday and it will be a Story mode trailer. In it we'll see a few cutscenes with Kotal and naturally we'll get our first look at in game Erron Black. Then on Thursday, the stream will show off his gameplay.

in the Initial Select Screen, we can see a man wearing a hat, it's probably him no?

I'm personally not understanding all the hype around this character, but I'm not dismissing him completely. He could be amazing for all I know, but it's very hard to go "ERMGERD HE'S GR8 M8" and jump on the hype train when the character hasn't even spoken.

Sure, Skarlet has no lines of dialogue at all in MK9, and despite her powers and her (IMO) badass story and movesets, very few fans took to her the way they seemingly have with Erron Black. Weird. wow

Skarlet's design is lame and Erron's is intriguing.

She shouldn't be in the game, period, because she's useless fan service just like Tremor. But of course that's just how I feel.

Personally, I think a character who is only released as a "last resort" by one of the most powerful and imposing characters within the series, has a lot more going for her than a cowboy with a ninja mask serving Kotal Khan. Makes me wonder if her design was a little more intricate and creative would the fans have taken to her as easily.

I mean, she's literally powered by the blood of her enemies. Putting her design aside, she's a master assassin with plenty of lore and character to work with, not to mention she had brilliant gameplay. I wont derail the topic by focusing on Skarlet, but I'd love to see her go down a road similar to Decapre from Street Fighter. Unhinged, delirious, and unstable.

For the moment, Erron's not standing out to me. Even his name seems sort of...awkward. sad

That name needs a lot of explaining though, one of the most uninspired dumb names ever.

Everytime I read it I think of some black guy named Enron or Aaron.
