How about IG come up with their own original characters rather than try to rip off characters from Mortal Kombat? Seriously, doing something like this in a commercial game when the intent isn’t parody is extremely unprofessional.
Well, Blaze, Nitara, and Onaga are kind already covered (Cinder, Mira, Gargos) The rest mostly seem to fall under the category of “dudes” and occasionally “slightly more Asian dudes”, so I think most of these old MK characters can stay back in 2004 where they belong.
On a semi-related note, however, I’d be über stoked if Nitara came back to MK. Though admittedly I’m kinda weird.
Uhm, Stryker, Khameleon/Chameleon, Motaro, Sheeva and Kintaro aren’t from the 3D era… Kintaro was the subboss in MK2, the rest were in MK3-MKT which were all 2D games.
As for the 3D characters, I like Tanya, Reiko, Kai, Nitara, Havik and Hotaru. I semi-like Bo’Rai Cho and Ashrah. I liked Kira’s look, but obviously her moveset should be completely revamped, as she just had moves from Kano/Sonya.
The rest I don’t care about.
NONE of them should be reworked as KI characters though. Would rather have ORIGINAL characters than rip-offs. Kamenrider, you seem really opposed having something good and new in KI and would rather just have Iron Galaxy copy/paste already existing designs into the game… smh.
Dairou and Hotaru are the worst lol I have hated them ever since I was a kid.
Drahmin though, he is probably my favorite character introduced in the 3D era (alongside Havik) but based on what I have heard Boon and friends aren’t too fond of Drahmin, so he likley won’t ever get a shot at redemption

Kan-Ra Was pretty original for a FG.
[/quote]There were at least 1 or 2 mummified characters that preceeded him in other FGs - 1 from Darkstalkers/Marvel vs. Capcom, and 1 from Shaq-Fu. So, no, not original in the slightest.
Not really. All 3 mummies I’ve mentioned ALL fight with their bandages.
…and yes, @darkfoxinvid, Shaq Fu does count - I actually recall it being pretty good as a kid (the characters were awesome, along with their animations, IMO, except for Shaq of course - he was still bad).
If you take him apart, he really doesn’t. It was the combination of things that made him new. For example, we’ve had mummified characters before, we’ve had sand-based characters before, we’ve had zoners before, and we’ve had trap-characters before. We’ve just never seen all of those put into a single character, and not only that, but in a way that works.
