    Take a back seat?! F that! Scorpion and Sub-Zero are too big of stars for that! Mortal Kombat is another name for "The Scorpion and Sub-Zero Show starring Scorpion and Sub-Zero".

    Make them both the primary heroes of MK this time.

    Story-wise, yeah, other characters should also let their stories be told.


    You're always on about how new characters need to "earn their spot," but how do you honestly expect that to ever happen if those characters aren't even given a fair chance in story mode?

    Scorpion and Sub-Zero earned the right to be the main characters in perpetuity a long time ago. Making them the primary protagonists is long overdue. I mean, they do have top billing in MK for a very good reason.

    They got that chance in MKX when they buried the hatchet and their 25-year feud ended.

    Time to move the story along and not be stuck in the past.

    They don't need to be the focus of the story to be in the game tho. Put them on the cover and you're set

    That doesn't answer the question.

    Which MK characters are bigger than Scorpion and Sub-Zero, even after 25 years worth of chances to exceed them?

    Re: Ideas for MK11

    Scorpion and Sub-Zero have been the most popular MK characters since day one... and they've done that WITHOUT being the main characters. Hence why they don't need to be. Story-wise they aren't interesting or relevant enough to the main story to be main characters anyways. They have always had their stories on the side because they were personal stories. Neither of them were all that concerned about saving the world from a big bad guy, that's the job of the main heroes. They are support characters and always have been.

    Re: Ideas for MK11

    Personally I think its fine if Scorpion and Sub remain mostly poster-boys but don't get top billing in the story, the way the current plot is going they seem to be settling more into support roles anyway, with Sub being Grandmaster and a teacher to the young heroes and Scorpions "revenge" being complete. I mean aside from doing the save the realms stuff, where else can we really go with these guys that doesn't feel like regression rather than development (aside from addressing how Scorpion really botched that whole stop Quan Chi plan for everyone).

    Re: Ideas for MK11

    Does Sub-Zero and Scorpion even have to be in the story? As a die-hard Sub-Zero fan that I am, I couldn't care less if he had a part in the story or not. I'd rather see these two characters be in the roster for the sake of keeping the die hard fans happy that they're still around, and not have any importance other than "We're just in here because we're always in here."

    Sure, some might whine and claim "tHeY'rE TaKinG A SpOt oF SoMeOne WhO cOuLd bE MorE uSeFuL," because there's always those bunch that comes out when they see someone in the roster that they don't like. But seriously, if having no Reiko in X managed to make someone threaten an actual employee of Netherrealm Studios, imagine what it would be if Sub-Zero and Scorpion were not present.

    I'd like to have my favorite game not have their company's employees fear because you have a few psycho idiots who can do some damage to people who aren't really the kind that can take that garbage on their Twitters.

    Well, not really.
    Just like with Ryu in Street Fighter. He's the face of the franchise, but considering the story of SFV, Ryu was hardly a part of it at all. He just showed up to beat Bison in the end, and that role could easily have been given to Nash. Ryu was kinda a shoe-in, to be truthful. Exactly like Scorpion and Sub-Zero were in MKX's story.

    Re: Ideas for MK11

    With the huge outcry for Noob Saibot's absence in MKX, he's more than likely coming back for MK11. Which means Sub-Zero definitely has a place in the story mode. Scorpion's place in the story imo totally revolves around Takeda. I can see them doing something like killing Jacqui or Kenshi, and having Scorpion trying to teach Takeda to control his rage.

    Not main story bound, but they still have side relevance.

    If Noob Saibot is coming back (which I also agree with you and think that he will) I'd rather NRS use Noob Saibot as a way to re-introduce Sareena and have her new timeline story told in the next game, given that she's had some history with him in the past timeline (Mythologies) and she even mention's Bi-Han by name in the MKX story mode.

    I actually wouldn't mind if some of the old characters that DO come back give us more info on new characters that didn't get enough spotlight in MKX, or new characters in general.
    Didn't Erron Black have ties to Shang Tsung in his arcade / ladder ending (for example)?

    Re: Ideas for MK11

    Going by a lot of the (of course noncanon as of now) arcade endings, MK11 might be about Outworld vs Earthrealm. They could be saving the Netherrealm cast for a future game, sans Saibot.

    I actually wouldn't mind if Noob Saibot forms and alliance with Havik (as per MK9), as well, to also re-introduce Havik and set it up for an invasion of the NetherRealm by ChaosRealm, either for MK11 or the next game.
