Mortal Kombat: Onslaught Character Wish List


Since its debut in 1992, the Mortal Kombat franchise has worn a lot of different hats over the years. While the franchise is mainly known for its many, many side-facing fighting games, Mortal Kombat has also dabbled in a few other genres over the years, from third-person action games to brawlers. And in 2023, the franchise is set to adopt a new genre, with its upcoming game Mortal Kombat: Onslaught being a mobile-exclusive RPG.

While not much information has been given about Mortal Kombat: Onslaught yet, NetherRealm has confirmed that the mobile-exclusive will still retain the main series’ cinematic approach, along with introducing some collecting gameplay mechanics. Taking this information at face-value, it seems pretty likely then that Mortal Kombat: Onslaught will let players control characters from across the franchise’s long history, & there are a few fighters that simply need to make the Slice.

Alongside its announcement a few months ago, NetherRealm released one promotional image for Mortal Kombat: Onslaught, showing some fan-favorite characters battling it out among each other. While it hasn’t been officially confirmed, it seems likely that these characters will appear in the game. This means that Scorpion & Sub-Zero, the two faces of the franchise, will of course show up. Kitana & her tyrannical father Shao Khan should also make an appearance. Jade & Quan Chi can also be spotted on the poster, as can Raiden & Shinnok.

This is a pretty strong starting line-up for a Mortal Kombat game, but there are countless other characters that should Advance to mobile RPG. There are a h&ful of classic Mortal Kombat characters that just need to be included in Mortal Kombat: Onslaught‘s roster. Johhny Cage, Sonya Blade, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Jax, Goro, & Kano are all franchise staples that should appear in every Mortal Kombat title. Along with them, a few other classic characters should make the roster, from Shang Tsung & Reptile to the rest of the ninjas. This includes Cyrax, Sektor, Smoke, Noob Saibot, & Cyber Sub-Zero.

Mortal Kombat: Onslaught also has the perfect opportunity to re-introduce some of the franchise’s lesser-known characters. Kintaro & Motaro, for instance, aren’t often seen in modern Mortal Kombat titles. Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliances‘ Moloch & Nitara would also be great lesser-known additions to the roster, with the latter being a vampire from the Vaeternus realm. While Kenshi has appeared in a few modern-day Mortal Kombat titles, he’s a welcome addition to any roster he’s in. Mortal Kombat: Deception‘s Havik, an erratic character from that Chaosrealm, is one of the most underrated MK characters of all time, & this game is the perfect opportunity to give him his dues. Kira, who also debuted in Mortal Kombat: Deception, would be another great pick, essentially being a brutal mix of Sonya Blade & Kano.

In the last few Mortal Kombat entries, fans have been treated to a range of crossover characters, all hailing from different popular entertainment IPs. Over the last few years, players have been able to fight as action heroes like Rambo, The Terminator, Robocop, & Spawn, along with horror icons like The Predator, Alien, Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, & Jason Vorhees. It may be a bit of a long shot, considering Mortal Kombat: Onslaught is a mobile spin-off, but it would be great to see more crossover characters in the game’s future. There are plenty of properties Mortal Kombat hasn’t dipped into yet, including a bunch of other gaming IPs. It would be great to see Halo‘s Master Chief or Ghost of Tsushima‘s Jin Sakai battle it out in Mortal Kombat: Onslaught‘s mobile arena.

Mortal Kombat: Onslaught is in development.
