Current Mortal Kombat 11 characters

  • Sub-Zero: The Lin-Kieu leader returns with all the flashy freezing moves you'd expect. He's still voiced by the lovely Steve Blum. 
  • D'vorah: The insect-ridden fighter from MKX returns, and we'll bet she can still use those bugs and giant pincers to bite and slash at enemies. 
  • Johnny Cage: Johnny's Fatality is everything you could want it to be. 
  • Geras: A newcomer to the Mortal Kombat franchise, Geras serves MK11 antagonist Kronika, and wields weapons that materialize from sand and stone.
  • Baraka: Your dentist's worst nightmare, besides Mileena. Baraka is a Tarkatan warrior with giant spikes extending from his forearms.  
  • Raiden: The God of Thunder and usually a force for good in Earthrealm, Raiden's turned a particularly dark leaf after the events of MKX and MK11's debut trailer. 
  • Sonya: A series mainstay, and now voiced by and modeled after the infamous UFC fighter Ronda Rousey. 
  • Skarlet: A blood magic user, and a returning fighter from MK9's DLC. 
  • Scorpion: The other half of Mortal Kombat's most iconic duo.
  • Kabal: He was an NPC in Mortal Kombat X, but Kabal rejoins the fight proper this time around with his signature hook blades and face mask.  
  • Kung Lao: He was killed in the events of Mortal Kombat 9, resurrected by Shinnok in MKX, and returns to fight in MK11.
  • Shao Kahn: Ol' Kahn was defeated at the end of Mortal Kombat 9, and while he took a breather from X, the big bad is makes a return in 11. 
  • Kollector: Another series newbie, Kollector is the sadistic second fiddle to Shao Kahn but the only character with six arms!
  • Cassie Cage: The daughter of Johnny Cage and first introduced in Mortal Kombat X. 
  • Liu Kang: Kung Lao's buddy and original MK hero Liu similarly met his fate in MK9, but there's a revenant version of him ruling the Netherealm. 
  • Cetrion: This elder god is a newcomer in MK11 in command of Earth, Wind, and Fire. Also water.
  • Kitana: Series veteran Kitana is back with a fatality that sucks out an opponent's guts with a wind vortex.
  • Kano: A cutthroat pirate, leader of the Black Dragons, and one of the original Mortal Kombat cast. Was last seen training his son at the end of MKX. 
  • Jade: Absent from MKX but returning in glorious form, Jade focuses on weapon usage and magical powers like her purple aura of invincibility. 
  • Erron Black: MKX's gunslinger is back, bringing his rifle and pistols to knife fights, and also gun fights, and whatever kind of fight it is when a guy throws fire at you. 
  • Jacqui Briggs: Also returning from MKX, kickboxing Special Forces agent Jacqui brings her fists to MK11 along with her personal friend, Cassie Cage. 
  • Jax Briggs: Cybernetically-enhanced soldier Jackson Briggs uses his enhanced strength to stomp on heads, clap faces, and rip off arms.
  • Kotal Kahn: The Emperor of Outworld is back, and got his ass kicked in his own reveal trailer. 
  • Frost: The first ever female Cyborg in the MK series returns to freeze the competition in its tracks
  • Noob Saibot: Noob used to be Sub-Zero, but now he's Noob. Be careful about asking questions, because you might never climb out of the lore hole you get yourself into.
