We all knew there was no way you could pick 10 definitive fighters from the Mortal Kombat series and not include this guy. Scorpion is one of those love him/hate him kind of fighters, with fans of the Mortal Kombat series usually quickly picking a side. Join individuals just chatting about the game and chances are you will hear someone mention how amazed they are that he could ever be considered someone’s favorite fighter. But no matter how you may feel about the living dead ninja, there is absolutely no denying his popularity.
With his iconic yell of “get over here” that let anyone facing him know that they were about to become a bit too close and his chained kunai, Scorpion is easily one of the most recognizable characters in video games. He is also one of the few fighters to appear in every single Mortal Kombat game, placing him in a pretty exclusive club. Using the power of the Netherrealm (Mortal Kombat‘s hell), he is able to summon hellfire in order to bolster his attacks and is often a critical character in every Mortal Kombat plot.
Add in the fact that Scorpion is voiced by none other than one of the game’s creators, Ed Boon, and you really can’t get much more iconic than Scorpion in Mortal Kombat.
