The Joker’s recent addition to Mortal Kombat 11 is far from the craziest character to ever grace the series’ roster, but it does set a precedent for wacky and out-there guests to enter the fray. To that end, here are five other twisted guest characters who could and should come to Mortal Kombat 11.
Mortal Kombat has an established record of bringing horror icons into its roster, so who better to carry that mantle into Mortal Kombat 11 than Pennywise?
In terms of story, his inclusion wouldn’t be that odd. Fueled by the fear of his prey and adversaries, the other-worldly entity could easily find himself drawn to the series’ conflict by the fear entrants feel as they fight for their lives.
Not only that, but he could reach the same power as its strongest combatants through said fear, able to go toe to toe with even Raiden or Shao Kahn.
On the gameplay front, he would also provide an interesting avenue for the developers to work around. Thanks to his being able to transform according to a person’s fears, he could morph and change his body at will based on the situation.
Whether he needs fists to pound someone down, claws to end them, or blades to slice them in two, he could conjure them up in an instant, making him a worthwhile challenge to fight against and a blast to play as if this ability were implemented.
