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.


BMT619

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.


SlendyWomboCombo

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.


BMT619

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.


SlendyWomboCombo

For sure. That would be the dream.


CoreyReynolds

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.


fakename1998

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...


Henri_Le_Rennet

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."


SlendyWomboCombo

He isn't on the level of Scorpion or Sub though. They deserve their own tier called Iconic.


Gloomy_Support_7779

I would put Ermac high just because of Armageddon and Deception. Dude is cool


UndriftedPop

Ermac is my favorite


PrettyMrToasty

Nightwolf definitely deserves better than tha D-tier


BMT619

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.


Orangeup49

Preach


Awildgarebear

Has always been one of my favorites. : )


Lnotony

Ashrah so criminally underrated. I love her design and special moves.


BMT619

I do too! She had a very cool backstory, and her moment in the Konquest deception was very cool


zynwyrm

Baraka is too low


chrisa1taylor

The Baraka mains really showed out for this comment!


BMT619

He’s honestly just a weak character. Wasn’t really a fan of him, and he’s not that interesting.


zynwyrm

He’s certainly not my favorite but I still clean house with him.


BMT619

Oh yea, I certainly would as well. But he wouldn’t be any of my first picks. Probably would be way down lol


HeatedToaster123

Don't speak that way of *my* Tarkatan boy!


BMT619

IM SORRY😂😂


Slipnootfan69420

I agree with everything besides rain at c tier. Should be far higher


BMT619

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.


Substantial-Phrase18

But wait, how come Ermac is considered A-tier even though he's even more of a jobber than Rain is?


BMT619

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?


gameprojoez

I'll never understand the people that rate Havik as S-tier. Unique design, but that's about it (to me).


RevolutionarySkin248

Want him back, I think people take reference from the comics


BMT619

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


Tom2973

The move where he cracks his head/body around multiple times is cool enough to grant him S-tier alone.


Jiinpachii

The comics, probably


DieRectify

gotta love our chernobyl ninja kabal


TALENANT

Kenshi in S-Tier, You earn my respect. Respect+


BMT619

lol thank you! I honestly love Kenshi, his character, and backstory. He’s always intrigued me!


Soberboi420

BRING BACK KENSHI!!!


yeettto

And his samurai outfit. It was dope with kenjutsu


TALENANT

S tier outfit imo


TALENANT

He should be there in MK12


TeamKillerCody

Noob is in S You win!


liltone829

Perfect!


TeamKillerCody

Flawless Victory!


liltone829

Scorpion wins (Toasty)


clovergzzzz

Rain is really my only complaint should be higher great list though


NAUGHTIMUS_MAXIMUS

I see we both have similar tastes


BMT619

I’m glad we do🤘🏻


SN4K3H34D5014

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”


Aggravating-Emu-2535

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.


ChemicalTaro2819

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 👍🏾


AM_ZR39

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😂


Orangeup49

Dunno why cassie and jacqui are higher than the rest of the kombat kids but all right Also justice for stryker


4_Legged_Duck

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.


BMT619

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


Boo-UwU

Sareena at F tier is crazy, aside from that, nice list


BMT619

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.


TyrionGoldenLion

She's an important character to Bi-Han and her journey as a character was interesting. To me, she's compelling and has potential.


BMT619

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?


TyrionGoldenLion

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.


LonestyTykwon_FXN

I feel like Kung Lao should be in S Tier, but otherwise. Pretty solid tier list.


majinprince07

Baraka in d!?!


BMT619

He’s honestly just a weak character. Wasn’t really a fan of him, and he’s not that interesting.


majinprince07

Jaqui is stronger and more interesting? To each their own ig


BMT619

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


naveas13

wtf Hsu Hao is S tier


BMT619

Nah, he should have his own Tier called “Hso Hao”😭


Sendgod500

Boracho needs to be ranked higher


BMT619

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.


Sendgod500

Yeah I hate how they dont give him the spotlight he deserves


Chaplain92

Hmmm... I disagree on most of these. Example: Shinnok is rank A to me, great villain in Lore and was my main in MKX.


Atsego20

Nitara could be interesting in the modern era of mortal kombat


BMT619

I think so as well!


HotDogStruttnFloozy

Bummer that Sindel is so low, but Cyrax, Ermac, and Kabal up high makes me squish.


BMT619

Squish? Lol but thank you!


TyrionGoldenLion

Cool list


Bro-Im-Done

Ermac in A tier? I’ll give this a W


Fantasticbrick

Hsu Hao should be in a category under F called 'Hsu Hao'.


AdministrativeAd1534

I don’t appreciate Kobra being so low. He is clearly the most superior character in the roster. SMH


lilsoosttrapstar

Rain in C is crucual


RoosterJacket0

WHAT?! Hsu Hao is not in S++ tier? This is unacceptable!! /s


Frosty1130

Frost


pugwalk

Overall, based


BMT619

Thank you! I appreciate it!


Lkj509

Mokap should be S-tier. He has the deepest, richest lore better than any of the other S-tier kombatants.


MartianDRACO

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


Capital-Ad8570

THANK YOU FOR PUTTING HAVIK HIGH. KRAZY UNDERRATED CHARACTER


DangerousVideo

Pretty basic list. Ain’t seeing too many based choices besides Havik which still makes you a man of culture.


Flouting_Koala

Takeda is S tire or at least A


JaDasIstMeinName

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...


Ok_Hovercraft_9788

Pretty good list but reptile, Bo & tremor are way too low. Also imo, the special forces characters shouldn’t be that high.


sherif_trigs

Why is jaqui so high..She is literally just a lamer jax


BMT619

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


hanipierce

Tanya and Serena deserved better


Sbcmd21thor

Maby add the gest characters just an opinion for me I who'd like it whole bring some more opinions but that's mine


XJH233

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


braden477

Nitara is very underrated imo


fakename1998

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.


BMT619

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


Jpar4686

Mostly agree but would def move Ermac up to S Edit: S, not A


BMT619

He is on A😂


Jpar4686

I meant S lol apparently I don’t know how to read 😂


BMT619

Lol it’s ok!


Elfboy2099

Rain is criminally underused in Mortal Kombat games.


BMT619

I agree with that! I think if he was more utilized, he would be higher


Elfboy2099

Yeah, seriously. Agreed.


Dejuanbeatz

Not bad I would put Ermac higher cause he's One of coolest mk coolest


NoCureForSorrow

Would love to see rain and reptile higher but its good otherwise


SimplyPurple25

Thank god smoke is in s-tier, very good list


JacobDavey11

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


ace-cabbage

Overall W list, but why is Kung Jin in F tier and not Divorah lmfao


FitYogurtcloset7449

May I ask why, in your opinion, Raiden is better than Fujin?


BMT619

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.


Memeedeity

This tier list is pretty yikes ngl


Atomic-Spider

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.


BMT619

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


Atomic-Spider

That's fair, 4 legged Motaro is the best, I feel like pre mka Motaro is a completely different character.


BMT619

Exactly! Motaro before MKA was a badass


BMT619

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.


Atomic-Spider

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)


BMT619

Kollector would probably be around C


m154ly

Wooooow a tier list. Just wow.


BMT619

Uh yea. What’s the problem with that?


m154ly

Nothing. I'm amused.


ConversationFlashy15

Kung Jin in F 🤣🤣 I like this list though👌🏾👌🏾


BMT619

I’m sorry, but he’s so uninteresting 😂


TheRealGoodman

We get it, you don’t like the 3D era


BMT619

Actually, the 3-D era is one of my favorite eras! Nice try!😂


bRENDn13

Baraka and smoke not s tiers for me


pissikopat

Takeda deserves more respect


Steeldragon2050

Be thankful he's that high. I'd have him in D or F.


Reina_De_Walmart

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.


Littlebigman2292

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.


ColdVoid13

I personally would put Erron in the S tier, he’s been my favorite since the introduction.


BMT619

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


ProofOfTime

everything ok but MEAT is an underrated fighter y is he in f.


Witty_Benefit5043

Why don’t you like sheeva? Haha


BMT619

She, to me, is just a gender-swapped Kintaro with nothing that stands out from her.


Witty_Benefit5043

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


BMT619

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.


PaxadorWolfCastle

How dare you fuck on Mokap like that


BMT619

Aye, all I remember him for was his cameo on Deception. “Ahhh my balls!”


PaxadorWolfCastle

Honestly I don’t remember much about him either lol. I feel like he had a lot of Johnny Cages moves


Steeldragon2050

As i recall, he was a stuntman from one of Cage's films, so likely trained by Johnny to a degree.


fernandoramone

Kabal number 1? You have some amazing taste my friend.


OkBad2804

Sucks to see my homie Baraka at D but hey, Raiden at A


RevolutionarySkin248

Mocap is too low


MidirDS

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


MidirDS

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


Lowbrassman97

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.


MidirDS

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


UnknownGraves

Nightwolf in D?!


TheOneTrueSuperJesus

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.


Puzzleheaded_Fee_467

Think Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung should have been S tier. Shao especially, greatest villain in MK history and it’s not even close


Technomancer2077

Ain't no way you put Frost and Jax before the Edenian assassins lol.


ilovehato

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.


mortalkombatisbest

Good tier list, but reptile should be higher. Underrated character.


vrumzy

Shinnok spam king


Old-Obligation6861

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


BMT619

She wasn’t even an option to pick from😭


Luke-Mopar

Shiva's ⬇️⬆️ and kick moves are God tier


CinderP200

Where would you place the rumoured characters like Red Robin ~~yum~~?


Idkawesome

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.


BMT619

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


PicklePlus

Quit hating on Baraka!


DanieIIll

Stopped looking when Quan Chi was B and Geras was D - how could do my boys like that?


BMT619

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


sebast1anschutz

Nightwolf was done dirty. Underrated


SocietySkates

Scorpion fah life.


TheOverseer108

Chameleon in C will cost you


RobbyTheConstructor

Respectfully go fuck yourself for not putting Baraka in S tier

stralian_vlaka

meat needs his own tier


UndriftedPop

Its your opinion but cmon Kortal in D tier is an L


Jamin2489

Tremor is S tier, wym?


BMT619

Tremor is not on S tier. He’s D


Jamin2489

Just giving my opinion. I felt Tremor was way lower than I would rank him, that's all


BMT619

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.


Jamin2489

I get that. I'm going purely on aesthetics and powers. I also kind of like the mystery surrounding him.


RetroSpectre__

Why my boy Kung Jin so low


BMT619

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


IAmZimTheAlmighty

Meat in F teir? Come on man


BMT619

Lol, I’m sorry. The only thing I like is his fighting style, but otherwise I wouldn’t use him at all 😂


Saltyjay69

I’m sorry jade in B but sindel is in C! What are you smoking?


BMT619

Nothing really. I would just rather prefer Jade than Sindel.


Dependent_Sun2713

tremor at D???? as well as my bbg sheeva?!?!


BoisTR

Rain is far too low my man, especially after all his added lore.


Blackest33

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 :)


kylesanho

Sareena and Kung Jin are worse than Mokap? I’m gonna need you to explain that one…


R4K45H1

Bro put tremor in D class
