  • Hey all, I was talking on another thread showing a Best to Worst list. It's not quite a fair list being that it's mostly a person or a small group of people who put that list together. I was wondering what your list would look like. Rate the characters from best to worst.

    • I'll go ahead and vet this started. Here's mine from worst to best.

      Mokap Meat Khameleon Chameleon Kobra Kira Hsu Hao Blaze Moloch Stryker Jacqui Briggs Tanya Drahmin Nitara Reiko Jarek Kano Li Mei Mavado Rain Sareena Ashrah Cassie Cage Reptile Baraka Sheeva D'Vorah Sonya Blade Kung Jin Darrius Hotaru Ferra/Torr Kintaro Goro Onaga Dairou Bo' Rai Cho Havik Sindel Jax Tremor Daegon Taven Fujin Shinnok Johnny Cage Mileena Shujinko Shang Tsung Jade Takeda Nightwolf Kabal Kitana Motaro Kung Lao Frost Raiden Skarlet Kotal Kahn Shao Kahn Ermac Kenshi Quan Chi Sektor Kai Liu Kang Triborg Cyrax Smoke Erron Black Noob Saibot Sub-Zero Scorpion

    • Just to confirm, Dragon, we are to list these in order of our favorites, yes? Not necessarily best to worst as that is subjective, correct?

      Yes, and I apologize. I should have said that.

    • I've gotta say... This was very difficult to do beyond like the top 10 or so. I think I could make a "most important character" list or something of the sort with much more confidence. Note: I don't consider Triborg as a stand alone character, as he is just an amalgamation of the cyborgs. Anyway, here you go:

      72 – Meat, 71 – Mokap, 70 – Jacqui Briggs, 69 – Cassie Cage, 68 – Bo’ Rai Cho

      67 – Kira, 66 – Kobra, 65 – Sheeva, 64 – Ferra & Torr, 63 – Dairou

      62 – Blaze, 61 – Kung Jin, 60 – Frost, 59 – Darrius, 58 – Erron Black

      57 – Nightwolf, 56 – Kurtis Stryker, 55 – Hsu Hao, 54 – Kintaro, 53 – Moloch

      52 – Kabal, 51 – Sindel, 50 – Sonya Blade, 49 – Tanya, 48 – Li Mei

      47 – Shujinko, 46 – Kitana, 45 – Jade, 44 – Kung Lao, 43 – Kenshi

      42 – Jax Briggs, 41 – Mileena, 40 – Khameleon, 39 – Sareena, 38 – Onaga

      37 – Nitara, 36 – Ashrah, 35 – D’Vorah, 34 – Drahmin, 33 – Kotal Kahn

      32 – Mavado, 31 – Tremor, 30 – Takahashi Takeda, 29 – Jarek, 28 – Shinnok

      27 – Raiden, 26 – Liu Kang, 25 – Goro, 24 – Smoke, 23 – Cyrax

      22 – Quan Chi, 21 – Shang Tsung, 20 – Sektor, 19 – Skarlet, 18 – Reptile

      17 – Daegon, 16 – Baraka, 15 – Rain, 14 – Scorpion, 13 – Chameleon

      12 – Motaro, 11 – Kai, 10 – Fujin, 9 – Reiko, 8 – Taven

      7 – Hotaru, 6 – Johnny Cage, 5 – Shao Kahn, 4 – Havik, 3 – Noob Saibot

      2 – Ermac, 1 – Sub-Zero

    • @DLKMK: I like how diverse your list is from mine or any other one I've seen. The reason why I put Triborg into the mix is because I'm hoping that they'll have Triborg as a standalone character and both Cyrax and Sektor come back as "human" revenants.

      Yeah, ranking the entire roster by favorites is very difficult to do. I'd venture to guess for the most part that anyone who bothers to do this will be vastly different from both of ours as well. I know casual fans have this perception that there's just a handful of characters that everyone likes, but that's simply not the case if you're more familiar with the franchise. Hell, a lot of the characters on my list are so high due to me simply thinking they have great potential if they'd ever be brought back.

      I can see you hoping for Cyrax and Sektor to come back in their human forms, but they literally make up what Triborg is, so I believe if that were to happen, then Triborg couldn't possibly come back as canon. Even if you stripped Triborg (whom should be named Quadborg) of all the traits that make up the character (Cyrax, Sektor, Smoke, and Sub-Zero), I could see that working, but not still being named Triborg. I'd be interested in seeing a name change before canonically adding him/it to the roster and also making him/it a completely artificial robot as opposed to a cyborg. Afterwards, they could bring back Cyrax, keeping him human, and Sektor, who is resurrected as a human, but goes on to find the last remnants of the Cyber Initiative at some Lin Kuei location and restores himself as a cyborg somehow, then realizing that cyborgs can still have emotions, so he re-creates the Tekunin in this timeline, except they are all artificial robots as opposed to cyborgs or something like that.

      If you don't mind me asking, when did you first get into MK/what was the first MK game you played? I ask because I was very surprised to see the likes of Erron Black, Triborg, and Kotal Kahn so high on your list.

    • Yes, you're right about the difficultness to this list. I figured it would be. I wanted to challenge the fans. I wanted to see enough lists to come up with an average. I figured it might become a more accurate list. Probably not though, but I think it's fun anyway.

      I like what you're saying about Triborg and the future of the Tekunin. It would create more depth to Triborg and it would be great to see a human Sektor in an Ironman type suit and have an army of Ultron type robots.

      I started with the very first MK back in '92. Erron Black is just so independent from the other characters and mysterious. His back story leaves me craving for more. Triborg is where he is because he's so random and dangerous. Kotal Kahn is, to me, the best ruler of Outworld next to Shao Kahn.

    • You know, maybe something more to the likes of top 10 favorite and top 10 least favorite?

      Yeah, that'd probably be much easier for people to attempt.

    • Maybe with common denominators and elimination, we could get a more accurate list of rank.

        Loading editor
    • I agree, but we still have no other takers other than you and I... Lol. Perhaps you could edit your opening description of the thread so people know more about what you've decided to change it to?

        Loading editor
    • Actually, I think it might be better if we do that at a later time and we open another thread. It's just that people probably already saw this and decided not to do it so they won't come back for it anyway. It's all good. I'll do it another time.

    • @JacquireBriggs: I like how opposite your list is. It goes to show that there might be no official word on who would be the all time favorite character in fan history.

        Loading editor
    • @JacquireBriggs: BTW, do you only have the new characters from MKX because you don't know enough about the older characters from previous games like Sub-zero and Scorpion? If so, That's pretty fair.

        Loading editor
    • Truthfully I know about the older characters, but I never cared for 90% of the ninjas or any of the older characters. Only ninjas I actually liked are Reptile, Chameleon and Khameleon. Heck I were to make a full version, I'll put Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Raiden near the bottom or middle on the list.

    • Oh okay. That's fair.
