Wait...so at the ending of Mortal Kombat 9.."Spoilers"
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Not much was done with his character other than what was already known about him in the alpha timeline, and an opportunity to have his rivalry with Scorpion more fleshed out was completely wasted. While his moveset takes inspirations from the NoESt.
He can only morph into to the character being fought, and they can block this to prevent it. His moves aren't that great, one of which even leaves you open for attack, and is easy to do by mistake when throwing combos involving uppercuts. And 2 of his big advantages, his grab and Soul Steal, are useless on the bosses. He can be played okay in the right hands, but even then, he's moderately good at best.
Sheeva as well, considering that for all her power her specials offer, she doesn't have much to work with in combos and specials and is rather large to boot.
Kabal takes the cake. He has effectively rendered the metagame completely useless considering that he's a tier onto himself. He has no crippling weakness and functions as a zoner, grappler and can rushdown. His instant air fireball allows him to retreat while having multiple projectiles on screen at once.
He is a definitive Game-Breaker. Though he had already been a Guest Fighter for Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny on the PSP and played completely differently. Freddy Krueger was completley unexpected by everyone, as he comes from a horror films series and not a video game.
Scorpion has been getting some of this sort of reaction from those who were introduced to the franchise via MK9. Granted, it is unfortunate that he lost his clan, and especially his wife and infant child, in a brutal massacre and is intended to be a tragic figure. However it doesn't justify him aligning with the likes of Quan Chi and by extension Shinnok and instead makes Scorpion look more like an angry asshole who jumped out of a Dark-Age, Liefeld-inspired comic book.
To the credit of the creators, this is somewhat acknowledged at the beginning of Chapter 16 when Raiden chews him out for his continued service to Quan Chi which will do nothing at all to revive the Shirai Ryu or at the very least do something with some sort of good intention.
A Return to Kombat?
To some degree for some fans, Liu Kang, while he is right about Raiden in the end to an extent, he loses trust in Raiden because of Raiden's changes of time.
This is in spite of the fact Raiden has to juggle the responsibility of protecting the heroes and change the timeline for the better, which is not an easy task. However, Liu Kang is justified as he did not actually see the visions.
In fact, Raiden from the original timeline could fall under this too, because he could have very easily specified who the message "He must win" was referring to, though to be fair, he was just beaten up and about to be killed, so he must have had little time to clarify.
That being said, "Kahn must win" uses the same number of syllables and is a hell of a lot less cryptic though it would probably have been even harder to convince others to follow him in that case. He ended up as the God of the Trope.
For one, he didn't go to the Elder Gods until the last possible minute, nor explain his visions. Hey Sonya, Ermac's got a hold of Jax! Want to help Jax out? Okay, let's just hope nothing bad happ—Oh wait, there go his arms. Good thing you're here Sonya, now you can stop the bleeding! Shao Kahn himself at the very start of the game.
In Sindel's Mortal Kombat: Armageddon ending, she defeats Blaze and obtains godlike powers. With these newfound abilities, she decides to resurrect her husband King Jerrod, reaching out to the Heavens and taking his soul.
She gives him flesh and bones, allowing him to live once more. Now Sindel, Jerrod, and Kitana will work together to ward off evil tyrants like Shao Kahn and to keep the realms safe and protected.
After absorbing Shang Tsung's powers, she kills most of the Earthrealm warriors and their allies in a temple where they were rallying to plan a counterstrike at the Outworld forces. Nightwolf performs a sacrificial ritual that kills both Sindel and himself.
Design and gameplay[ edit ] Lia Montelongo in During production of Mortal Kombat 3, Sindel was nicknamed "The Bride" and "Muchacha" by the developers before her official name was determined; John Tobias described her as "probably one of the coolest characters. Sub-Zero and the motion capture for Tanya in Mortal Kombat 4both released inwho was nineteen years old when she auditioned for the role.
The process of applying her makeup and heavy wig took three hours, while her costume was red like those of the game's other characters, but digitally tinted purple for the game. Montelongo filmed game footage in a single fourteen-hour session, and in a interview with fan site Dave's Mortal Kombat, she revealed that after MK3's release, she would visit arcades to watch people play as Sindel.
Sindel is the first character in the Mortal Kombat series who used the power of levitation as both a move used in combat and as a victory pose. She uses her screams as both stun moves and for some of her Fatalities.
In the reboot, Sindel sported a similar but updated look resembling her MK3 appearance. She had no use of her hair as a weapon in Deception and Armageddon, but it returned in the reboot for both basic attacks and special moves.
In the Story Mode, she is Shao Kahn's bodyguard, also serving as a jailer when Sonya and later Kitana are held captive, and must be fought several times by the characters the Story Mode focuses on. Despite this, she does not appear in Mortal Kombat X. In her noncanonical ending, she goes to Raiden for help in protecting her people from the loyal followers of Shao Kahn, fearing that the Shokan will be targets over her defeat of the emperor.
The Elder God shows her mercy and relocates her and her people to Earthrealm, where they make the continent of Australia their new home, and it is there that Sheeva becomes their new ruler. Design and gameplay[ edit ] Sheeva, whose name was derived from Shivaa Hindu deity of destruction, was introduced into the series due to fan requests for a playable version of Goro.
Sheeva's blood was green in MK3 through Mortal Kombat Trilogy although if this was done simply because she was a Shokan, it made little sense, seeing as both Goro and Kintaro had red blood in previous games. She was the first character to have this particular blood color not counting the censored Japanese version of Mortal Kombat IIin which all characters had green blood.
Her blood color was changed to red in Armageddon. Until the release of MK: Armageddon, Sheeva had not appeared as a playable character since MK Trilogy, nor did she have had any substantial cameos; only her corpse was found in the Netherealm in Mortal Kombat: Deception 's Konquest mode and is seen running through the graveyard in the game's Krypt, in which almost all MK characters had cameos.
Deadly Alliance 's Konquest mode. In Armageddon's arcade mode, Sheeva sometimes appeared as a sub-boss before the final fight with Blaze.
She is the only Shokan character that can perform aerial combos, and the only Shokan character that can be thrown by normal characters in the game. While she has Goro's offensive moves, she is female so that she would be smaller in size and therefore the same height as the other fighters. In other media[ edit ] Sheeva appears in Mortal Kombat: Annihilationplayed by Marjean Holden.
The shooting script included a lengthy fight scene with Raiden that was omitted during filming; instead, she was simply crushed by a falling cage in Kahn's throne room.
