Uhh, no, you don't speak for someone who's not here anymore, and I strongly doubt he's that retarded to think the same way as you and your Swedish fetish.




He doesn't think, we know this. Stop thinking and start knowing. Not only that but caveman chose Blondes as their ideal partner. So it makes sense with Swedish platinum blonde thing.

Motaro is just plain brute strength.

1.) They're not going to randomly make a new Centaurian character if they can't even get the mechanics right for Motaro to play fine within these games.

2.) Motaro hasn't even gotten a fair chance after his debut in the third game. Trilogy gave him a shitty fatality with no story or ending, and Armageddon basically made a mockery of this character. Why should he get ditched for some half-ass thought up angelic centaur that doesn't even exist in the Mortal Kombat universe?

Even I look at that "angelic centaur" and laugh at it. That's something you see on Deviantart.

3.) You want a new boss since Kahn is dead? Uhhh... you do realize that we have Quan Chi and Shinnok working together and were shown at the end of story mode that they're the next threat. Either you obviously didn't play the story mode all the way at the end, forgot (seeing how your wishes for having purses in the game clouded your memory), or just being plain stupid and not caring that there's actually a story that needs to be followed.

Dir dir dir.


Motaro was in MK9 because that game was about going back to the roots. MK10 isn't about going back to the roots. I know about Shinnok and Quan Chi. But I said they are not power houses or a boss that is about brute strength like Shao Kahn. So a new Centaur could be that boss that is about brute strength. At least Motaro had a sendoff where all leading villains gathered together when Motaro died. Sheeva is still alive. The least scariest Shokan.



I'm just going to ignore about the first post because I'm not wasting my breath about your retarded fetish.

How can you even talk about Quan Chi and Shinnok when we don't even know what they're going to be like for the next game? Let alone of the next game is even going to be a continuation from the fighting game or if it's an adventure. I don't want a boss that's nothing but brute force, that's where the subbosses come in from. I have no idea where you're going off about Sheeva, don't diss a favorite of mine. Brute force is not everything. I'd be more terrified of a bone head sorcerer who can summon undead warriors... Scratch that, a bone head necromancer who can summon the undead to go his bidding rather than some guy who is on steroids.

So is Goro & Kintaro. & most likely one of these two will be the subboss in the next game.
edit: & yes they had Goro as the subboss in MK4 with no explanation other than to provide a decent challenge to the home consoles & because his stage was in the game.

Sheeva is alive, but there are no villains alive that u get intimidated by size, think Hugo from Street Fighter. Kintaro, Goro, Motaro, all dead, except Sheeva, the least scariest out of them all. Is it like this because NRS wants to introduce new villains into MK? Other types of Centaurs maybe. That's why I say an Angel Centaur might work. They killed off most of the cast maybe because they're going to remaster the characters i.e. Reborn like Scorpion. If u know about The Blackest Night and The Brightest Day in DC Comics, then you'll know that the characters are reimagined. This is what I want for MKX, I don't want to see them come back and look the same. I want them to have a new look, and maybe different abilities, maybe, for some. DC Comics also gave their DC characters new looks, called New 52.

For the last time noobsm- I mean hankypanky1, Goro & Kintaro are NOT dead!! Cyber Sub-Zero just knocked them out like the other punching bag villains in this one-sided story. How do you even know that Sheeva is still alive? It just seems you made believe that notion of the villains dying so that you can put your ideal villains into this game.

Goro and Kintaro haven't intimidated me in a very long time. I can't even remember the last time Mortal Kombat made me scared like a little girl.

Also, Goro and Kintaro aren't dead, they're in a frozen state, which clearly proves you haven't played the game. Everyone pretty much knows this.

We're not having angel centaurs being thrown into this game, and it's not because I hate pretty much every one of your ideas. It's because they can't even get the mechanics down to have a centaur character, let alone Motaro, to play right in this game. Even if they do, I can say with 100% confidence that they're not going to suddenly throw in a horse character with wings because it's "different."

They're not going to bring back the "dead" characters in frilly new outfits. I also don't want to see Sub-Zero suddenly possessing the ability to wield earth-bending abilities. They're not going to give any of the dead characters brand new abilities that they've never had before because they're resurrected or because they're dead or whatever. Bologna.

Kintaro and Goro alive, then so be it. But I still want to see the characters get new outfits. Enough with the trashy low value look. I want costumes that are classy and sassy that look high value. Motaro got a sendoff after he died. Why bring him back? Let him R.I.P.

Uhh...they busted out of that ice and then Cyber-Sub beat them unconscious.

Kano was the only one left frozen, and we know that ice eventually thawed/broke too because later, when you fight Noob Saibot, he says Kano warned them you were coming.

Why the hell do people keep replying to hankypanky? I swear, so many threads derailed just to argue with him. I never directly reply to him, and would have kept acting like he didn't exist (I even deleted a PM he sent me once), but people had to derail another thread because they apparently haven't learned not to feed the troll.

I realize I'm derailing my own thread too, but at this point it probably cannot be salvaged anyway.

Shesh, I was hoping he'd get that and actually believe it.

This is why correcting things all the time is silly, you ruin jokes. But then again, jokes go over his empty head so it's not much of a joke. But it's also fun to mock him because he doesn't know it, hence why sometimes it's kind of funny to actually reply to the jerk.

Exactly, ignoring him at this point is pretty much moot, even if we stopped now, he ain't going nowhere. He's just gonna keep shitting up the boards with his every infantile thought, And this is just during the Mortal Kombat off season. Imagine how much more brutal it's gonna get when info on MKX starts picking up. Not to mention he's a fucking hypocrite, too. Like weeks ago he personally insults my intelligence for wanting an angelic character in MK, and now all of a sudden he's all for an angelic centaur. Someone really needs to pull their head out of their hindquarters.

Have you ever played Mortal Kombat? No one ever stays dead. Motaro can make a return once his mechanics are Flushed out. Besides, a send off? He got barely any screen time!

Hank, I'd like to share my ideas? Can I? May I your royal, most attractiveness- which trumps any and all forms of intelligence. May I oh, most high one, whose opinion matters most of all?

I believe that you should...how should I put this...take a long fall with a short rope. Nah, nah, that's not right....have a cigarette while taking a gasoline bath. No, not that one either......that you should have sex with a mound of fire-ants, have your limbs hacked off with a dull axe, your tongue eaten by ravens, and what's left of you kicked out in the middle of the Arizona desert in rattle snake country in mid-August.

Friends, I implore you, show me how many of you feel the same way I do? Or if there are those among you who can defend this troll do so.

Seriously this. For fuck sake, it doesn't make you look any better when trying to talk down to him. You're essentially arguing with a baby. Even if he does continue posting random things so what? Just scroll past it it. What's with this perpetual need to respond? Stop already. (I recognize the irony in that by trying to prevent people from responding to him, I'm also drawing attention to the situation. But shit, even if he does respond to this I 'm going to do the mature thing and NOT RESPOND.)

For the sake of discussion, I was just happy to see Motaro. 2 legs or 4 legs at least he was there. Hopefully in the future they are able to bring him back to 4 legged glory. (Should be much easier without having to worry about 3D)

I'm going to agree with this more than what Kunglaodoesntsuck said because no matter how you act with this user, it doesn't matter at all. It really doesn't. You're not immature/mature depending on how you act, it's still the same goddamn manner.

I can certainly say when the site actually becomes more active (although it is active now and I can't understand as to why no mods are showing authority at all) this crap would be put to a halt immediately. I mean, people have already shown enough evidence for this idiot to get banned already. I've seen him get banned on TRMK because people pointed out already that he's nothing but an idiotic troll who's posting the same crap from here to there. Why this site is allowing him to actually continue is beyond me. Whether we choose to actually respond or not, it doesn't make any kind of a difference at all. He'll still continue to post if we DON'T respond because he'll think we'll still have a conversation with him if we choose to ignore, thus, causing more off-topic bullshit no one here cares about. If we decide to actually respond, jokes and name calling hardly does anything because it's hysterical to see them fly right over his head.

I'd like to actually ask as to why this is happening when we damn well know that if this site becomes more active like when it was when 2011 came out, why he's not banned already since shit like this gets people banned instantly. He was once before when he was Noobsmoke_mk, banned after a month of doing this shit. What changed now is beyond me and it's unfair for us who actually still want to have a decent conversation with other people.

I understand, this thread has been derailed, technically it wasn't since people were still talking about Motaro up until this page, but anyways... Fuck.

My journey on MK forums have taught me not to care too much about haters. Haters are gonna hate even if your ideas are good. I've posted on many of MK forums and themortalkombat and mksecrets seem to be the most civilized forums out of them all. And on those forums I've gotten good feedback on my wishlist thread and I'm happy with the outcome because of all effort it took to make. I made it last year and have been constantly updating it with new ideas and suggestions for nearly a year now.

I didn't really derail this thread, I just said there should be other kind of Centaurs because there are different kind of Shokans. And I gave a few ideas of different kind of Centaurs. Then I get people bringing up grooming/fashion. I know noone here is on my level because I follow a supermodel diet and fashion, but I don't bring this up on threads. Only the haters bring this up time and time again. I'm looking at IceBaby and coltess and FROID. This guy here is unbiased towards me had to say this about my ideas:

Hank, seriously, you're just too stupid or too egotistical for your own good. We don't hate you because you're beautiful, in fact some of us admire the dedication it takes to adhere to a strict diet, we hate you because you're an egotistical asshole.


You are currently scoring a 2.4 out of 10 in my survey. This puts you in the "terrible" range. I can supply pictures, if you'd like.

Alright everybody. Let's all take a deep breath and think about this first.

First off, we know very little about the Centaur race other than the fact that they are very tough. But I think Motaro, the very first, no ONLY Centaur should have his grand re-introduction first before we move to Centaur variants. I mean what else do we know about the Centaur race other than what Motaro shows us. The latest Mortal Kombat showed he wore some skulls and bones to invade Earthrealm. If that is how much a general would wear to invade Earth, I don't think his soldiers would wear as much either.

Second, hanky, you may have big ideas, but that doesn't mean everyone is gonna like it. You have to understand another persons side of an argument before you talk back. Your Centaur variants should come second because regular Centaurs did not have proper screen time yet. So please calm down. The forum is about sharing ideas. Not about constantly pushing in your ideas.

During the introduction prologue in MK3, there is a cool pic with Motaro and five other centaurs (one of Shao Kahn's extermination squads). They're all similar to Motaro in appearance, but have their own distinct look. If Motaro doesn't return, I'd like to see Netherrealm use that pic as a reference to create a new centaur.

Had Motaro had more of an appearance in this game, we could have probably gotten a bit more information about them.

They possess magic, I'd like to know why that is, and if it's only through their... cyborg-ish tails, or through other sources on them. I'd like to see more of their war between the Shokan. We know that he and Sheeva absolutely do not get along, could we see more of that in the future if he is ever to return.

Motaro is a great character that has been treated like crap and it's sad that it is.

But I think Motaro, the very first, no ONLY Centaur should have his grand re-introduction first before we move to Centaur variants. I mean what else do we know about the Centaur race other than what Motaro shows us. The latest Mortal Kombat showed he wore some skulls and bones to invade Earthrealm. If that is how much a general would wear to invade Earth, I don't think his soldiers would wear as much either.


Had Motaro had more of an appearance in this game, we could have probably gotten a bit more information about them.

They possess magic, I'd like to know why that is, and if it's only through their... cyborg-ish tails, or through other sources on them. I'd like to see more of their war between the Shokan. We know that he and Sheeva absolutely do not get along, could we see more of that in the future if he is ever to return.

Motaro is a great character that has been treated like crap and it's sad that it is.

Motaro also had the ability to teleport.

Right he has a bunch of cool stuff

-teleport
-death ball from his tail
-the fact that projectiles bounce off him and back at you
(Motaro vs Motaro: death ball bounces back and forth into the ground. Good times)

Also in MK3 some centaurs wore chest plates and carried spears.

That's what I meant with the whole, "they possess magic," thing. I'm well aware he has more abilities other than shooting six bolts at you with his tail. I was more asking the question as to how is it that they're able to possess magic. So how does Motaro have magic, is it through the tail or is it through other sources? And of course, they're going to rely on the actual centaur with them being the all-mighty brutes that they are in the mythology.

I always sort of assumed that due to the nature of Outworld constantly being under the rule of Onaga and Shao Kahn that the entire realm was sort of imbued with magic. Kahn's sorcery is enough that he can literally merge the realms together; he's forcing magic across all the lands of that realm. On Earth, however, while there are places related to great magic, those are places where magic has permeated a particular piece of land. That Earthrealm in it's entirety is not Magical, but there are places where magical energy runs deep.

So, I think the Centaurs and other denizens of Outworld can sort of tap into this lingering magic, allowing them to do some of the insane things they do. Also, I always thought Motaro's victory pose looks as if he was casting some sort of spell, or harnessing some sort of energy.

Again, all of this is just sort of how I perceived a lot of the goings on in Mortal Kombat.
