    Re: Ideas for MK11

    Not really, considering those are real people, and Scorpion and Sub-Zero are not. They are fictional characters without the capability of thinking themselves. Every action they do, every word they say, are written and created by other people, namely the developers of the game.

    The people of Metallica and Harrison Ford are real people who are capable of thinking for themselves and acting on their own volition. Scorpion and Sub-Zero aren't.

    That said, some popular side-characters have indeed starred in their own spin-offs before. Like Timon and Pumbaa from the Lion King, for example. And as mentioned before, that could happen with Scorpion and Subbie... But they're always side-characters in the main story though.

    Timon and Pumbaa were not the characters people paid to see in the Lion King. Scorpion and Sub-Zero ARE who people pay to see in Mortal Kombat. The native characters fans pay to see should have top billing. What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

    SOME people, sure.
    I'm not one of them though.

    This doesn't change any of my points though. Their relevance to the main story is still at its lowest.

    You love to say that, but Ken is missing from MVC:I launch roster.

    The outcry of "no X-Men" seems to be even bigger than Ken, going by that logic.

    Yes, exactly.
    Now that their story has come to a amicable conclusion, it's time for other characters to shine.
    No need for their side-story to be shoved into every game.
    As it is, those 2 are on every piece of promotional material, so there's no real need to also have another side-story in MK11 with them, given that anyone who picks up the game will know that those 2 will be in it.

    Any Capcom game that doesn't have both Ryu AND Ken is not a pure Street Fighter game.

    MKvsDC isn't cannon, either, but Midway chose some of their most popular characters for that game, as well, and other Trilogy characters didn't make the cut.

    You see?
    I'm not saying that Ken isn't a top popular character, but rather that those are the characters that were chosen for THAT game, and just like how Ken isn't on the main roster for that game, some of the other Trilogy characters can either sit out for a game or be rotated with others for the next game.
    No big deal.
    That's what I'm getting at, regarding the Trilogy roster in general (not just Sub-Zero and Scorpion).
    That was my point in post #615 and #620 of page #31, before it veered off into being about only Sub-Zero and Scorpion (which I was only trying to use as prime examples of 2 Trilogy characters that don't need their story to be told in every single game).

    Re: Ideas for MK11

    I hope Liu Kang and Kitana can take over as the real bad guys because I'm thinking MK11 is hinting at the Netherrealm being the real bad guys. Quan Chi and Shinnok are rendered useless due to their storyline deaths, meaning Liu and Kitana get a chance to be the top bad guys despite being former good guys.

    Kung Lao, Sindel, Smoke, Kabal, Nightwolf, Jade and Stryker are just there like wallpaper. Jax, Scorpion and Sub-Zero weren't around long enough to be long-term evil threats. New additions to the revenants could include Mileena, Rain, Baraka, Cyrax and Sektor since D'Vorah killed Mileena and Baraka, Rain got burned on a stake after being deserted by Tanya, Sektor was killed by Sub-Zero, and Cyrax voluntarily self-destructed to help Sub-Zero and the Lin Kuei get a fresh new start after their infamous Cyber Initiative program was out of control.

    Dark Raiden would probably be more of an anti-hero at best. I don't want to see an exact repeat of Armageddon 2.0 again, for it would make the franchise reboot all pointless for nothing, so no Onaga, Blaze, Taven or Daegon as the top baddies.

    The reason why I hope Liu Kang and Kitana stay villains is because it would make even the typically evil characters like Tanya, Goro, Reptile, Shang Tsung, Mileena (if she's alive for MK11), Rain and Kotal Kahn (those except Kotal who have previously feuded with Liu and Kitana as villains in the past but now they should probably chip in and feud with Liu Kang and Kitana as more heroic characters this time) gain more credibility as heroic characters even if it's just for the moment. Maybe Earthrealm (except for Raiden's clique) and Outworld could finally put aside their differences and work together to stop Liu Kang and Kitana.

    Re: Ideas for MK11

    How about characters getting possessed?

    For example, maybe characters like Sonya and Tanya can get possessed by Kia and Jataaka (since little is known about those 2 demons of the Netherrealm and even though Quan Chi is dead, they can serve Kitana and Liu Kang). So what can happen is that in this timeline, some form of dark magic can make Kia and Jataaka possess bodies (whether they have been killed in this new timeline or not).

    Or better yet, Kia can possess Kira and Jataaka can possess Li Mei as they serve the Netherrealm.

    For Reiko and Havik fans, they can have them possess a male character as well who aren't really that important.
