Overated- Kung Lao: There isn't much work that has to be put into him. He's fast, range of specials. There's no challenging fighting as him.
Ermac: He's cool and all, but man can his juggles get any more repetitive? Or how about that distance on force push?
Underated- Sheeva: So much potential with her. She is great in damage and has awesome range.
Sindel: People think she's all about the zoning, but she has great mixups up close and an anti jump in yell.
Overated- Rain: I just don't think his story is that interesting.
Reptile: What do we actually know about him? He serves who? We know nothing except that he has a long tongue and spits acid. There isn't much story to him.
Underated- Sindel: She was forced into marriage with Shao Kahn, sacrificed herself to protect her daughter and her realm. She was ressurected evil. Then changed to good. Queen of Edenia. She has a great story imo.
Kabal: It was nice to see what actually happened to him and how he got burned. Wish they would put more emphasis on all characters like this.
Secondly, respectfully, no, the ninjas aren't all based on the elements. Sure, Scorpion has a few fire attacks, but he hasn't always, and his power comes from being a spectre from Hell, not from literally having fire powers, but still, you may have a point. You might have a point with smoke too. But what about Ermac? Reptile? Is Ermac's element 'souls'? Is Reptile's acid? Or how about Mileena, Kitana, Jade, Cyrax, or Sektor? If you want more elemental ninjas in your Mortal Kombat, that's your prerogative. I personally prefer a bit more variety.

"IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU BLACK OR WHITE! YEOWWW!"
Ermac: Telekinesis (this is not so convincing as a "substance")
Other "elementals" or manipulators would be Raiden, Liu Kang, Fujin, etc, etc.
Besides I never said "Elementals are the best chars", I just said that they are my favourites.
PS - Scorpion is not fully a "manipulator" but he become more and more through time, now in this game he has many fire moves.
Specials: Demon Fire, teleport (he has flames when tp)
Enhanceds: Hellfire, Flame teleport (fire uppercut), Flame spear.
Strings: Fire punch (111), Fire flipkick (F214)

underrated is by far Stryker i remember in the arcades always picking him and the people would get all mad and say he has a gun that bs of course he has a gun he a ****ing cop
Overrated: Sub-Zero and Raiden
Underrated: Baraka, Kabal and Stryker
IMO the most overrated characters are Kung Lao and Scorpion they are sooo overplayed online. One of the most underrated is Noob, I think because of the fact that a lot of people who use him spam.
