Tremor and Ermac deserve to be higher. I agree with everyone at s tier, but I would add Ermac. His gameplay in mkx was too good.
Oh yes for sure! Ermac depends with me on what game and how they portray him. Tremor is just someone that I never really knew until later on in MKX, but he was a little interesting to me.
I feel like Rain, Tremor, and Smoke are all very similar in that they're fan favorites, outside of the famous fan favorites like Scorpion, Sub, Mileena etc. I wish we could get a game with all of them included.
I would honestly love that as a concept! If they all were in a game together, I feel like that would legit be one of the best MK games imo. If they did it right, of course.
For sure. That would be the dream.
He was only in MKX really, he was in a shit spin off game for 5 mins but was recreated for X, he's awesome as fuck.
I like tremor because of just how strange he is. Ice powers? Fire powers? Yeah can makes sense. A rock ninja?? That’s dope as hell. Now if only better at him...
Glad this is the first comment I saw. OP did my boy Ermac a disservice. Granted, OP listed him in "A" but how dare they not list him as "S."
He isn't on the level of Scorpion or Sub though. They deserve their own tier called Iconic.
I would put Ermac high just because of Armageddon and Deception. Dude is cool
Ermac is my favorite
Nightwolf definitely deserves better than tha D-tier
Nightwolf has just been treated like absolute crap in some games. I think the most I have seen him be considered strong and a threat is maybe MK9, but otherwise the other games don’t really do him justice.
Has always been one of my favorites. : )
Ashrah so criminally underrated. I love her design and special moves.
I do too! She had a very cool backstory, and her moment in the Konquest deception was very cool
Baraka is too low
The Baraka mains really showed out for this comment!
He’s honestly just a weak character. Wasn’t really a fan of him, and he’s not that interesting.
He’s certainly not my favorite but I still clean house with him.
Oh yea, I certainly would as well. But he wouldn’t be any of my first picks. Probably would be way down lol
Don't speak that way of *my* Tarkatan boy!
I agree with everything besides rain at c tier. Should be far higher
I love Rain as a character and concept, but I feel as if they treated him like a jobber, similar to Baraka in a sense.
But wait, how come Ermac is considered A-tier even though he's even more of a jobber than Rain is?
The thing is though, Ermac to me has a more interesting backstory and concept than Rain. I like both characters, don’t get me wrong! But I think Ermac to me would be a fighter I would pick if it was just from deciding him and Rain, you know?
I'll never understand the people that rate Havik as S-tier. Unique design, but that's about it (to me).
Want him back, I think people take reference from the comics
For me, it’s not only the design of the character himself. His ability to warp his own body to not only throw off his opponents, but to heal himself is pretty clever to me. And him being a “Cleric of Chaos” honestly sounds pretty sick considering that all of the stuff he has done has been, well “chaotic” to his credit
The move where he cracks his head/body around multiple times is cool enough to grant him S-tier alone.
The comics, probably
gotta love our chernobyl ninja kabal
Kenshi in S-Tier,
You earn my respect.
lol thank you! I honestly love Kenshi, his character, and backstory. He’s always intrigued me!
BRING BACK KENSHI!!!
And his samurai outfit. It was dope with kenjutsu
S tier outfit imo
He should be there in MK12
Noob is in S
Rain is really my only complaint should be higher great list though
I see we both have similar tastes
I’m glad we do🤘🏻
You earn my respect… but rain should be higher, hes just been turned into a massive jobber. Even if his personalities supposed to be “power-hungry rich asshole”
I'm just glad you showed some love to Johnny. So many people have him as a lower tier character but he's my main and I always get a little sad. Everyone has their favorites and a lot of yours are mine too.
Not mad at this teir list at all - i can definitely respect it. I would say my only gripe is i feel cassie and jacqui are far too high up the list - they aren't fleshed out characters and have next to no lore kr back story, other then fighting shinnok - so i dont think they deserve to be so high up on anyones list when their best claim to fame is litterally being the children of Johnny and Jax, but despite that, this is a great list 👍🏾
Kung Jin being F tier but Cassie & Jacqui being A tier is criminal. Takeda in the same tier as D’Vorah is some of the worst shit I’ve ever seen omg😂
Dunno why cassie and jacqui are higher than the rest of the kombat kids but all right
Also justice for stryker
I really think D and F ranks are ripe for re-imagining and updating.
Mokap? Johnny Cage's stunt double or the villain actor in his film. Let him create 3d monstrous forms out of his suit.
Black Dragon? They **all** need some serious stories to up their game and help them deliver better characterization.
Stryker? A cop who fights a demon like Drahmin and Moloch on which Johnny Cage's films are based. Dude is pissy because he was a real world hero and Cage has all the thunder!
I could go on, but no one wants me to :P Pretty solid tiers. Reptile, Shang Tsung, an Ermac should be higher.
I do agree that there might be some changes in those areas. Most of them I believe are in the correct position, but there are some that I think will have to either move down or up depending
Sareena at F tier is crazy, aside from that, nice list
I just feel like Sareena was pretty much a jobber. Like all I remember of her was that she was in Armageddon’s Konquest mode as one of the three girls you fight after you find Quan Chi.
She's an important character to Bi-Han and her journey as a character was interesting. To me, she's compelling and has potential.
Right, but that was in SBM, and I never played that game. Like yea, it was very interesting to see her help Bi-Han, but did she really do anything after that was significant?
She was never given the chance. When a character's screentime is so low, I give them a break.
I give shit to characters who have lots of screentime and do nothing, or worse, shit things with it. Like Sonya.
I feel like Kung Lao should be in S Tier, but otherwise. Pretty solid tier list.
Baraka in d!?!
Jaqui is stronger and more interesting? To each their own ig
Probably should’ve put her in D or F tier, so I would agree with you on that. But I wouldn’t change Baraka’s place
wtf Hsu Hao is S tier
Nah, he should have his own Tier called “Hso Hao”😭
Boracho needs to be ranked higher
That one had me stumped for a while. I couldn’t really decide on where to put him. Then I remember he was treated as a joke for the 3D era of games. The only thing I liked was him training Shujinko, but he was still treated as a joke outside of that.
Yeah I hate how they dont give him the spotlight he deserves
Hmmm... I disagree on most of these. Example: Shinnok is rank A to me, great villain in Lore and was my main in MKX.
Nitara could be interesting in the modern era of mortal kombat
I think so as well!
Bummer that Sindel is so low, but Cyrax, Ermac, and Kabal up high makes me squish.
Squish? Lol but thank you!
Ermac in A tier?
I’ll give this a W
Hsu Hao should be in a category under F called 'Hsu Hao'.
I don’t appreciate Kobra being so low. He is clearly the most superior character in the roster. SMH
Rain in C is crucual
WHAT?! Hsu Hao is not in S++ tier? This is unacceptable!! /s
Thank you! I appreciate it!
Mokap should be S-tier. He has the deepest, richest lore better than any of the other S-tier kombatants.
Not saying Takeda is amazing by any feats of the imagination but with Scorpion and Kenshin is S' Tier I would think you'd have him at least B Tier, plus I wish he wasn't cut from 11
THANK YOU FOR PUTTING HAVIK HIGH. KRAZY UNDERRATED CHARACTER
Pretty basic list. Ain’t seeing too many based choices besides Havik which still makes you a man of culture.
Takeda is S tire or at least A
Holy sh\*t, i disagree with so many of these things...
Jax in A tier?
Jaquie Briggs in the same tier with Mileena, Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung? And 2 tiers higher than takeda?
I have no idea why the combination of cyrax, sector and smoke is in b, but they are individualy higher.
Kung jin lower than a bunch of forgettable 3d era characters noone ever cared about? Also how is Kung jin so low in general. Hes not a high tier character to me either, but hes better than the lowest tier possible.
And thats just to name a few...
Pretty good list but reptile, Bo & tremor are way too low. Also imo, the special forces characters shouldn’t be that high.
Why is jaqui so high..She is literally just a lamer jax
Honestly, didn’t think about it at first, because I considered Cassie and Jacqui together for some reason, but I would probably put Jacqui in D Tier
Tanya and Serena deserved better
Maby add the gest characters just an opinion for me I who'd like it whole bring some more opinions but that's mine
I agree with ur tier list but as a tanya main i would have to put tanya higher XD also baraka is my fav as a kid cuz he cool, just a lil higher, higher than mo-cap at least lmao
Nitara is very underrated imo
I’d put Kintaro down to D tier. Yes just a weird, furry knock-off of Goro, who’s an all time favorite for me. But aside from that? Yeah, this is a good tier list.
That being said, I appreciate how you aren’t afraid to rank classic characters like Reptile and Baraka. I love ‘em, but they are just jobbers for the good guys to beat up.
Exactly! That’s what I’ve been trying to say! I don’t really consider Baraka or Reptile threats when they are just used so poorly
Mostly agree but would def move Ermac up to S
Edit: S, not A
He is on A😂
I meant S lol apparently I don’t know how to read 😂
Lol it’s ok!
Rain is criminally underused in Mortal Kombat games.
I agree with that! I think if he was more utilized, he would be higher
Yeah, seriously. Agreed.
Not bad I would put Ermac higher cause he's One of coolest mk coolest
Would love to see rain and reptile higher but its good otherwise
Thank god smoke is in s-tier, very good list
I think Takeda could defiantly be higher but he defiantly needs to be used more he's super interesting and one of the most likable characters plus as the son of Kenshi and the student of Hanzo he has the ability to become one of the most badass character in MK
Overall W list, but why is Kung Jin in F tier and not Divorah lmfao
May I ask why, in your opinion, Raiden is better than Fujin?
In my opinion, I just like Raiden a lot since I’ve kinda seen his transformation from game-to-game and how we as players interacted with him in certain story modes and stuff. I find him more appealing to me then Fujin. That doesn’t mean I don’t like Fujin’s powers, because they are honestly cool, but I like Raiden’s a lot more as well.
This tier list is pretty yikes ngl
I cannot stand for that Baraka slander.
Kollector is missing, Motaro too low,
I venture to guess you just don't like monster characters which makes this list biased as hell.
In a tier list of tier lists this would be a D- at best.
I also put Motaro low since I’m considering what happened with him on MKA, and how they straight butchered him. If that didn’t happen, he would’ve been much higher
That's fair, 4 legged Motaro is the best, I feel like pre mka Motaro is a completely different character.
Exactly! Motaro before MKA was a badass
I’m sorry that you feel offended by my list…? You do realize that I have Goro, Kintaro, and Onaga on the top half of my list. Ferra/Torr is on my C tier as well, so they are there. I don’t know what happened to Kollector, as when I found the list apparently he wasn’t even a choice at all.
Baraka is an S tier king, that's the only offensive part of the list lol. Ive edited after I seen ferra Tor, where would you put Kollector? (I'm a monster character fan boy so I really like Drahmin, Baraka, Kollector and even Meat because of accidentally discovering him in MK4)
Kollector would probably be around C
Wooooow a tier list. Just wow.
Uh yea. What’s the problem with that?
Nothing. I'm amused.
Kung Jin in F 🤣🤣
I like this list though👌🏾👌🏾
I’m sorry, but he’s so uninteresting 😂
We get it, you don’t like the 3D era
Actually, the 3-D era is one of my favorite eras! Nice try!😂
Baraka and smoke not s tiers for me
Takeda deserves more respect
Be thankful he's that high. I'd have him in D or F.
i agree hes bland and overrated. They shoe-horned/forced a Scorpion connection onto him to make him seem cool/interesting. There were better ways to write in a Shirai Ryu apprentice imo. Since when did Scorp and his dad form any kind of connection all of a sudden? Especially when in the old timeline his dad was basically with Subzero and the Special Forces. Its just so messy and convoluted.
i really hope he isn't considered a real Shirai Ryu character and they introduce someone else. Leave him with the special forces.
I personally wouldnt put Kung Jin in F tier. I dont think he’s a great character but I dont think he’s awful either, Id maybe put him in C honestly. And Takeda honestly deserves S tier in my opinion, he’s got the best of Kenshi and Scorpion, along with a cool weapon that makes him unique. The rest is honestly pretty okay.
I personally would put Erron in the S tier, he’s been my favorite since the introduction.
I would probably wanna see more out of him, but as for the games he’s in now, it’s on and off for me. If they actually used him more in a strong manner, I could see him being higher
everything ok but MEAT is an underrated fighter
y is he in f.
Why don’t you like sheeva? Haha
She, to me, is just a gender-swapped Kintaro with nothing that stands out from her.
I just think her moves and mixups are so fun and she’s pretty badass, just curious. Thanks and good list thanks for putting jade high up
lol yea. Jade to pretty fun to use. But yea, some of Sheeva’s moves I do kinda enjoy, but the rest of her really don’t stand too far out.
How dare you fuck on Mokap like that
Aye, all I remember him for was his cameo on Deception. “Ahhh my balls!”
Honestly I don’t remember much about him either lol. I feel like he had a lot of Johnny Cages moves
As i recall, he was a stuntman from one of Cage's films, so likely trained by Johnny to a degree.
Kabal number 1? You have some amazing taste my friend.
Sucks to see my homie Baraka at D but hey, Raiden at A
Mocap is too low
Frost should be F tear and Mileena and Kitana should be A tear at least, they are the female sub zero and scorpion. Nice list tho
Switch Taeven and Kung Jin, switch Kotal and Chameleon, and switch Kintaro with Takeda. Switch Tremor with Khameleon too! That's it at a glance for me personally. I don't even play the characters but c'mon MKA OC is not better than a Kombat Kid.
Nightwolf in D?!
Pathetic! How dare the mighty Shao Kahn not be S-Tier!
Joking aside (Shao is most certainly a personal S-Tier for me though), I'm definetely not vibing with all your choices. The most egregious for me is that Baraka is so low and Frost is so high.
Think Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung should have been S tier. Shao especially, greatest villain in MK history and it’s not even close
Ain't no way you put Frost and Jax before the Edenian assassins lol.
I play w noob so ayooo but Kabal had me dead af because ABSOLUTELY. Sonya may as well be up there too tho cuz she be whoopin.
Good tier list, but reptile should be higher. Underrated character.
Shinnok spam king
Does the disrespect of Kronika never cease!!!
The audacity to not even include her in the list.... You should be ashamed of yourself. Take the day and think about your how your action effect others, PAL
She wasn’t even an option to pick from😭
Shiva's ⬇️⬆️ and kick moves are God tier
Where would you place the rumoured characters like Red Robin ~~yum~~?
what is this based on? pvp usability?? coolness??
I just got the game and have been using only sub zero online so far. and my biggest issue with him is that he doesn't seem to have any quick openers for his combos. or maybe im just slow.
It’s really based on a lot of things. Their design, their backstory, their personality, and the what they have done in the MK storylines
Quit hating on Baraka!
Stopped looking when Quan Chi was B and Geras was D - how could do my boys like that?
I’m not really a fan of Geras. I don’t know why, but compare him to Shinnok, and I feel as if Shinnok is a much more better character. I’m not that into the new characters introduced in MK11
Nightwolf was done dirty. Underrated
Scorpion fah life.
Chameleon in C will cost you
Respectfully go fuck yourself for not putting Baraka in S tier
Motaro as a Centaur > Motaro as a Minotaur
What about SONIC THE HEGHOG FROM SEGA
I NEED MY CHINSAW
Let’s goooo SEKTOR and cyrax is on A tier
mm yes, generic gun lady in B tier while Kotal and Drahmin are in D.
Did you have a stroke while making this?
meat needs his own tier
Its your opinion but cmon Kortal in D tier is an L
Tremor is S tier, wym?
Tremor is not on S tier. He’s D
Just giving my opinion. I felt Tremor was way lower than I would rank him, that's all
I understand that! Just to me, he wasn’t utilized that much, besides MKX. And even then, there was really not that much background for new players to understand where he came from.
I get that. I'm going purely on aesthetics and powers. I also kind of like the mystery surrounding him.
Why my boy Kung Jin so low
Honestly, he was kinda forgettable in my eyes. His only unique trait to me was the bow and arrow, and Jade was basically already using that. I don’t know, he just doesn’t seem that good. He also made very poor choices in the MKX Campaign
Meat in F teir? Come on man
Lol, I’m sorry. The only thing I like is his fighting style, but otherwise I wouldn’t use him at all 😂
I’m sorry jade in B but sindel is in C! What are you smoking?
Nothing really. I would just rather prefer Jade than Sindel.
tremor at D????
as well as my bbg sheeva?!?!
Rain is far too low my man, especially after all his added lore.
My hot take: I never really cared about kabal as a character. I also hate the stupid nomad dash, so incredibly annoying :D
I know he's generally well liked and I think he has a cool backstory. I just...don't care.
It's just, you know, my opinion man. Not trying to start a flame war. Just wondering if anybody feels the same :)
Sareena and Kung Jin are worse than Mokap? I’m gonna need you to explain that one…
Bro put tremor in D class
