Netherrealm Studios has been announcing Mortal Kombat X characters left and right over the past few months. You may have missed a few of these reveals so here’s a full list of every character revealed thus far.
The list of characters is broken down into three sections: classic characters, new and DLC. Each character is accompanied by a brief description. In the case of the DLC fighters, the guide briefly mentions how you can acquire them as well.
Ermac – Ermac is a ninja built from the lost souls of many Outworld warriors. This soul energy allows him to levitate and toss his opponent around the map.
Jax – Major Jackson “Jax” Briggs is a Special Forces operative whose cybernetic arms enhance his considerable brute strength.
Johnny Cage – Cage is an action movie star well-versed in many fighting styles. He can empower many of his attacks with shadow energy.
Kano – Kano, a shady arms dealer, uses many high-tech weapons to give him an edge in battle.
Kenshi – Kenshi may be blind but his telekinetic skills and magic sword more than compensate for his handicap.
Kitana – Princess Kitana uses her Steel Fans as a ranged and melee weapon in combat.
Kung Lao – Kung Lao is a former Shaolin monk who supplements his martial arts with his razor-lined hat.
Mileena – Mileena is a clone of Kitana created for Shao Khan. Her signature weapons are a pair of sais.
Quan Chi – Quan Chi is one of the mightiest sorcerers in existence and can hypnotize or damage his opponents with his dark magic.
Raiden – As the God of Thunder, Raiden can call on lightning and wind to achieve victory.
Reptile – This lizard-like ninja is unquestionably loyal to Kotal Kahn.
Scorpion – Scorpion is an undead assassin brought back to life by Quan Chi’s dark magic.
Shinnok – Shinnok was once an Elder God. Mimicking other fighters’ moves is one of his many abilities.
Sonya Blade – Sonya doesn’t have the supernatural abilities of many other fighters so she instead relies on hand-to-hand combat skills refined through years of Special Forces work.
Sub-Zero – Sub-Zero is a warrior who can create ice and use it to deadly effect in battle.
Cassie Cage – Cassie Cage, the daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade, followed her mom into Special Forces. She uses two pistols in combat along with a nightstick.
D’Vorah – D’Vorah is an insect-like warrior who can summon wasps and other bugs and use them as weapons.
Erron Black – Erron is a gunslinging mercenary from Earthrealm who now serves Kotal Kahn.
Ferra & Torr – Ferra is a small, clawed creature that rides on the bank of the muscular beast Torr.
Jacqui Briggs – Jacqui, like her father Jax, is a Special Forces member. She wears mechanical gauntlets to make her punches even more damaging than usual.
Kotal Kahn – Kotal Kahn, a warrior with superhuman strength and mastery over blood magic, is fighting Mileena for control of Outworld.
Kung Jin – This mysterious ally of Cassie and Jacqui can use a simple bow and arrow to deadly effect in battle.
Takeda Takahashi – Takeda is the son of Kenshi and a pupil of Scorpion. He’s skilled with both a whip and katana.
Goro – This four-armed brute uses his extra limbs to easily grapple and pummel opponents. He’s exclusively available for Mortal Kombat X pre-order customers at launch but might also be sold separately later on.
Jason Voorhees – Jason, the machete-wielding star of the Friday the 13th movies, is one of four characters included with MKX‘s Kombat Pack.
