Can she not override the program like Cyrax? Love is stronger than a program.

Except Cyrax had a soul to override with. And no one showed love to Skarlet so why would she suddenly love someone? Especially an arrogant prince?

Because she never met the right guy/girl? Maybe she could be bisexual?

"program" is a figure of speech in this case.

My point is that Skarlet is not intelligent like a human is. As far as we know, she doesn't have the ability to think for herself or feel emotions.

This is why I think pairing her up with Khrome could work. Because Khrome doesn't have an ounce of Blood inside him, just liquid metal. And maybe he is the right guy for her. Khrome and Skarlet sitting in a tree, K.I.S.S.I.N.G.

Khrome could love Scarlet, but if Scarlet was completly oblivious to it, I think it could work.

And guys, WE HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN HER TALK!

I hope you know that "Khrome" doesn't even exist and that you're just toying around here.

Scarlet has yet to show us any humanistic traits as what Razor stated, I doubt she will. But why is this now about her? I thought this was about Rain?

You know hanky. Always trying to find a way to shoehorn in Khrome in everything. Then again, this thread started out as making Rain look like Khrome based on hanky's idea that faucets are shiny silver.

I still find the idea "I can't kill you therefore I love you" dumb. And if Skarlet can't kill hanky's Khrome, despite being one of Shao Kahn's most powerful assassins (using her only on special occasions), then hanky's Khrome is unkillable. If hanky's Khrome cannot die, he is a boring character.

But back to the main discussion about a Rain-Skarlet-new character no one cares about:
Rain cannot love Skarlet because he is an arrogant prick.
Skarlet was created only to kill. She only loves Shao Kahn.
If the new guy falls in love with a blood-thirsty killing machine, then shiny-man is also blood-thirsty killing machine. Because why else would chrome man fall in love with blood girl?

Could be that Skarlet doesn't have a brain and Khrome doesn't have a heart.

No I'd like to talk about Rain. As much as I don't like him, I'd like to go back talking about him. He should ditch the roundhouse kick.

He can't just ditch the roundhouse kick now, it's one of his signatures. I'd say get rid of the lightening since Raiden and Nightwolf also have lightening. I'm sure someone else has a roundhouse kick as well but whatever. Raiden should be the only one with lightening.

EDIT: On second thought, they all have their different reasons for lightening powers, but do three characters really need to have that?

So that makes Rain the wuss of the three? But who is the Dorothy? Will Sindel be the wicked witch? Is Baraka a flying-monkey? Is Raiden the wizard? Raiden is really a faker who just uses special effects? Please elaborate more on this twisted fan-fic idea you got.

Once again hanky talks about Khrome when the thread talks about someone else. I think he has an unhealthy obsession with this one ninja because this is the only character he seem to care about. Even going to a Dead or Alive forum to talk about him, a Mortal Kombat character. And he isn't even a real character. No rumor, no glitch, no secret, just "an accident"

And once again, random spitball ideas. Next to being an astronaut and coming from some realm that isn't really canon. The challenge tower isn't really the best place for official stuff since one challenge involves giving Scorpion a teddy bear.

You may have made this thread, but the title clearly says Rain.

I'd rather have it be used in an X-Ray rather than have it be apart of a move. It's goofy, and doesn't fit in with the other moves that have to do with water. I will agree, however, that his lightening move should be ditched and be replaced. His move set was quite all right in 2011, but those two that I said needs to be replaced. They're either too goofy to have or they just don't fit.

I like the lightning because it shows that his command of moisture isn't just limited to spraying water, he can also create clouds - and thus many different kinds of weather. I wouldn't mind seeing some other varieties in his moves, like hail, or a fatality where he makes a small hurricane, given the way he spins into frame in his intro.

Besides, it doesn't copy Raiden because it comes from the sky instead of his hands. Raiden, despite being the God of Thunder, has for whatever reason NEVER had a move where the lightning comes from the sky instead of from himself...and I'm okay with that. Mortals have to summon weather, Raiden MAKES it from his own body.

Now Nightwolf, I'd like to see lose the bolt - or rather, go back to having it strike his axe and be channeled through that, instead of straight at the opponent.

I'd actually be down to see more use of weather command be used by Rain if we're gonna go down that route. He shouldn't be limited to just rain, I really would like to see more use of that ability be used rather than creating a water bubble. Especially if we're gonna be talking about hail. (Saw that the other day when it was storming) that could be such an awesome move to use either as a special ability or even as a fatality. I thought his fatalities in 2011 were okay, but nothing special.

It might just be the Warcraft fan in me, but I don't want to see him losing his lightning ability.

Well like I said, I don't want to see Nightwolf's lightning gone altogether.

I just want it to be used more creatively and magically, like it was back when it was introduced in his MK3 finisher.

His MK9 throws and win poses and stuff are a good example of it done right, I just think the regular calldown is too bland.

Control other feats of weather sounds awesome. Just hope he gets more development.

I did originally support Khrome. But then you kept posting him in way too many other threads even really old threads just to say "herp nice Khrome idea derp".
Honestly your Khrome idea turned bad thanks to YOU. After I went through some of your old posts (I was absent from your first impression), I found out you are simply a terrible person, judging people based on their country, saying you are great yet type like a child, and your fashion ideas that don't make any sense.

So I no longer support a Khrome idea because of hankypanky1 / klimaxoxox / Muhammad Chowdhurry.

Show of hands everyone. Who actually gives a squat about "Khrome"?




*crickets chirping*

anybody?


*sigh*....alright. let's get back to the more relevant, not to mention official character in the series okay?

I could say with the roundhouse kick to make it more believable, allow rain to create a water like portal behind the opponent then have him/her exit out the other side for a free juggle.

If they do something with the roundhouse kick with his water moves, I'd be okay with him having it, like how you just stated.

It's just a goofy move that has him not using his powers. I mean, I know that not every single ability has to be used with their powers. But for a guy who can literally become so freaking power, you have just a goofy kick. Weirdo.

I'll give midway a benefit of a doubt & say that Rain's particular moveset in general was made up by those who ported the Arcade UMK3 onto the 16-bit consoles. Same applies to Noob as well.
