5 characters that should make guest appearances in Mortal Kombat X

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • August 19, 2014 at 4:10 p.m. PDT

In a recent interview, NetherRealm Studios' own Ed Boon confirmed that there will be console-exclusive guest characters in Mortal Kombat X.

Mortal Kombat 9, released back in 2011, had its own cameo fighter -- Kratos from God of War -- however, he was exclusive only to PlayStation 3 as Sony owns the rights to the franchise. We also saw the Dream King himself, (no, not me), Freddy Krueger enter the ring as post-release DLC, although he was available across all platforms.

NetherRealm kept with the motif in their next fighting title, Injustice: Gods Among Us, as Mortal Kombat's fiery ninja Scorpion guest starred as a playable character in the DC Comics brawler.

Since we'll be seeing more guests in NRS' upcoming Mortal Kombat X, we here at EventHubs have selected 5 different characters that we'd like to see make an appearance. Some of the following content may be considered NSFW, so proceed with that in mind.


Spawn is an easy pick, and one that I've expressed previously here on the site. His arsenal includes super strength, teleportation, shape-shifting, healing, and even mastery in martial arts and weapon-based battle, making him a shoe-in for any fighting game.

On character design alone, Spawn would fit perfectly into the Mortal Kombat universe. Also, just think of the Fatalities he could have!

Spawn has already made an appearance as a playable fighter in Namco Bandai's Soul Calibur 2, so his return to the fray is definitely a possibility.

Ash - Evil Dead series

Ashley Williams, or "Ash" for short, is a man who knows a thing or two about slaying creatures that go bump in the night. Forced to chop off his own hand after being bitten by a Deadite, (a person possessed by the Necronomicon that acts much like a zombie), Ash wields a freakin' chainsaw on his right arm where his lost extremity used to be.

His skills aren't just limited to one weapon, though, as Ash also proves proficient with a sawed-off double barrel shotgun. Don't cross a man when he's equipped with a Boom Stick...

"Shop smart. Shop S-Mart!"

Jason - Friday the 13th

Considering Freddy Krueger, one of the most popular Slasher film icons of all time, made an appearance in the last Mortal Kombat game, it's only natural that Friday the 13th's Jason be considered. The hockey-masked menace towers over his victims, cutting them down to size with a massive machete.

Jason isn't the most agile of the Slasher icons, but that certainly doesn't mean he can't fight. (See video below.)


Locust Drone - Gears of War

Xbox 360 players, in a sense, drew the short straw when it came to Mortal Kombat 9. Only PlayStation 3 users were given a console-exclusive character, so this time around we'd like to see Microsoft fans shown some love.

Enter the Gears of War Locust Drone. Most any character from the Gears of War franchise would fit well in the Mortal Kombat universe, but something about the Locust Drone just feels right to us.

Anyone who has played a GOW title in the past knows that these villains are not opposed to slicing enemies in half with a Lancer, but perhaps his fighting style could include projectile based-combat if he were to be included in MKX. Hey, Stryker can shoot bullets and throw grenades in Mortal Kombat. Why couldn't a Locust do the same?!

Slice knowing ya!


Personally, I'd like to see Hellboy in Mortal Kombat X more than any of the other aforementioned characters. As an agent of the B.P.R.D., this monstrous red devil-man is no stranger to the occult.

Hellboy holds the key to the end of the world in his right hand; well, technically it is his right hand, and it is indestructible. He also has super-human strength, and wields a massive revolver that can easily strike fear into his opponents.

It should be noted that Hellboy is immune to fire. Looks like we'll have our first 10-0 match-up in Mortal Kombat history. Sorry, Scorpion...

You gotta be kitten me...

Do you agree with our list? If not, who do you think should guest star in Mortal Kombat X? Let us know in the comments below!

I want Jack Bauer.

GammaChemical said on August 19, 2014 at 4:19 p.m.

Fraud ass list. No Predator when Ed Boon has been secretly obsessing over it over on twitter before MKX was announced? LOL.

edrigo said on August 19, 2014 at 4:23 p.m.

locusts from gears? abit of an uninspired choice. What about lobo? him with gore would be a decent choice plus peeps are familiar with him from a fighting game and comic book perspective already. Infact he could a comic book mini-series of him in outworld.

Shredder = TMNT

Delsin Rowe = Infamous Second sons

The Hound/The Mountain/or Oberyn Martell = Game of Thrones

Daryl or Rick = TWD

Alien/Alien Queen/Predalien or Net head = Alien series

SqueakyBloom said on August 19, 2014 at 4:29 p.m.

I don't have a preferred Guest character for MKX, but i'll still get the character, assuming they are part of a seasonal pass.

My vote for Injustice's guest character was Judge Dredd, so maybe he would be cool to see in MKX. If not, then maybe Michael Myers? A SciFi character would be cool, too.

eatkin said on August 19, 2014 at 4:30 p.m.

Replace the locust with Fulgore, seems like the most logical choice. No idea who could be on Playstation's, though Max said Sweetooth which would be rad. I'd like Metal Gear's Raiden purely for a Zandatsu fatality, but there are many reasons why it obviously won't be him. When it comes to non-exclusives then Ash all the way. Groovy.

LightSpdAeon said on August 19, 2014 at 4:32 p.m.

Delsin? are you even thinking?

ShakeTheWorm said on August 19, 2014 at 4:33 p.m.

Like him or not, Maximillian has the best picks for a MK X guest : Predator, Xenomorph or a Killer Instinct character (I would personally love Fulgore or Spinal). I can't find something more fitting than those.

SadisticSamurai said on August 19, 2014 at 4:33 p.m.

I wouldn't be ok with seeing Hellboy get fatalitied.

Jason would be cool, But his limited fight style might leave him as a lower tier meat shield kind of like Nemesis in UMvC3.

BlackOnyxThunder said on August 19, 2014 at 4:33 p.m.

Shredder??? Ahhhhhhahahahaha!

UncleBibby said on August 19, 2014 at 4:33 p.m.

I wanna see hellboy too. Especially if he had a wrestling command grab AND the ability to fire his giant revolver. Plus a flaming uppercut, maybe as a parody of Ken's Shoryuken, like, he could say something funny when he did it.

Now that i think about it, a character with a command grab, a projectile and an uppercut as his or her only three moves would be awesome in pretty much ANY game... Maybe if they bring back Sean in SF5 he could be like that...

OhYouDontSayThat said on August 19, 2014 at 4:39 p.m.


sarif2soon said on August 19, 2014 at 4:40 p.m.

No one laughs upon hearing his name.
You better watch out for Shredder.

Bloody_hado said on August 19, 2014 at 4:42 p.m.

Like Lobo in Injustice

Clearzova4950 said on August 19, 2014 at 4:43 p.m.

If any Gears character should be included, it should be either General RAAM or Skorge. RAAM has control of kryll and access to the kryll shield and can use those in one of his variations, and Skorge has the dual chainsaw staff. Seems like either character would fit pretty well.

sergio_reyes_ said on August 19, 2014 at 4:44 p.m.

seryously l like this character amazing exellent l no like hellboy

UncleBibby said on August 19, 2014 at 4:47 p.m.

I didn't think he had an uppercut, but yeah.... i guess he sorta fits.

brandaman69 said on August 19, 2014 at 4:50 p.m.

If they are console exclusive they will probably be console related. How about Drake for playstation and marcus fenix for xbox?

unicron42 said on August 19, 2014 at 4:52 p.m.

oderus urungus former lead singer of GWAR. The perfect addition to the bloodiest game ever, and the perfect tribute to the worlds gnarliest scumdog. Dave Brokie R.I.P.

tortoos said on August 19, 2014 at 4:55 p.m.

Spawn is a lamer. So lets get that out of the way first. No one has thought spawn was cool since the 90s. Freddy was originally added because he was someone they COULD add. I don't think they need to go back to slasher movies to pick up Jason considering this game is already full of people who use knives.

Hellboy is an interesting choice, but I don't think many people would be cool with him eating a fatality. Why gears of war? Just some random alien dude? No point in adding a guest character if they have no iconic pull.

Ash is the only one on this list I think would be okay, but the fact predator isn't on this at all despite boon clearly pushing for him makes me think this list isn't very good at all. I would agree with Predator or KI as the best choices for guest characters considering the source material involved.

SadisticSamurai said on August 19, 2014 at 4:56 p.m.

In honor of it being MK "X"... The Jason Voohees that should make the roster should be cyborg upgrade Jason from Jason X.

learis1 said on August 19, 2014 at 4:57 p.m.

I would buy this game solely for Ash if he was in it.

hakan_mania said on August 19, 2014 at 5:01 p.m.

Dexter Morgan needs to be in MK.

As far as TMNT characters they belong to SF instead

SAMURAI said on August 19, 2014 at 5:03 p.m.

Justin Bieber

EagleBirdMan said on August 19, 2014 at 5:21 p.m.

I love how only one of these would fit.

yes4me said on August 19, 2014 at 5:25 p.m.

I like to see a Terminator or Robocop. But realistically, it is probably going to be a video game character.

Imonfiiyah said on August 19, 2014 at 5:26 p.m.

Predator Should be DLC For MK10 ! Oh, just a Heads up guyz KOF 13 stream edition on sale for $5.73 on better get it before price goes higher ;)

fighto2000 said on August 19, 2014 at 5:31 p.m.

Boring character!!! (-o-)<zzzzzz)

jme said on August 19, 2014 at 5:33 p.m.

I ike how everyone is saying my picks don't fit when no guest character should get in here.

Of course who I picked don't fit because there shouldn't be any in here....

Abbadon36 said on August 19, 2014 at 5:38 p.m.


CockyChris_97 said on August 19, 2014 at 5:49 p.m.

Yes Spawn!!! All the way!!! Gears of War. Geanral Raam!? Why not have them there? He's brutal, ruthless, and he is a big giant badass with bats. Any Jason, Ash and even A Preditor should be on the scene. Deadly and ruthless is what all MKX needs.

Reifoftheast said on August 19, 2014 at 5:49 p.m.

I don't care who it is just keep going with the roster. Hell boy, General Raam, Ash hell but them all in more the merry.

akillyz said on August 19, 2014 at 5:57 p.m.

Superman from man of steel.

Fatality? Neck snap.

RambroCampAlot said on August 19, 2014 at 6:04 p.m.

what ?

sarif2soon said on August 19, 2014 at 6:11 p.m.

You must be new here.

Yung said on August 19, 2014 at 6:14 p.m.

What about Ryu from SF ? Kappa

humanspider said on August 19, 2014 at 6:21 p.m.

Lobo i think would fit right in this game.

bagel_bytez said on August 19, 2014 at 6:27 p.m.

Boba fett

The punisher

Venom (marvel not GG)


ReddChief said on August 19, 2014 at 6:32 p.m.

Spawn needs to be in a fighting game pleeze make this happen.

bagel_bytez said on August 19, 2014 at 6:32 p.m.

Bob Ross

Mike Ross

GreenDragon said on August 19, 2014 at 6:37 p.m.

Spawn would be best imo because:

His backstory and looks fit MK.

He like it or not was a 90s icon/fad that sold himself on gratuitous sex and violence just like MK.

Liam_Butler said on August 19, 2014 at 6:47 p.m.

I'll take Delsin, cause he already has 4 different variations of playstyle. I'd be cool with that. Neon, Smoke, and Vidoe playstyle, with Smoke being in your face damage, Neon being zoning-esqe/ranged, video could be a mix of both or something.

Jayson619 said on August 19, 2014 at 7:03 p.m.

Jack Thompson (anti-videogame lawyer)
Leland Yee (former state senator)
Justin Beiber
Rebecca Black
Luis Suarez (the vampire of the football world)
Neymar Jr. (the diver)
Lionel Messi (the tax fraud)

xthebluecometx said on August 19, 2014 at 7:21 p.m.

They need to put the punisher in this game and buffy the vampire slayer lamo

Kenshiro said on August 19, 2014 at 7:23 p.m.

I don't see the point if a guest character if this title is going to have more than a handful of 'newbies'.

Oculus_Orbis said on August 19, 2014 at 7:53 p.m.

I agree with Spawn, and Ash.

I wouldn't mind Judge Dredd, Robocop, or Predator.

Most of all though, I think a Cenobite, such as "Chatterer" or "Pinhead" would make more sense than all of these other suggestions, combined.

madmonk25 said on August 19, 2014 at 7:55 p.m.

Madara Uchiha would be my pick.

jelaninoel said on August 19, 2014 at 8:03 p.m.

Baracka Obama

shinra358 said on August 19, 2014 at 8:12 p.m.

Jason please. Cybernetic Jason X mode, Human style, and Undead style ;)

StarBuster said on August 19, 2014 at 8:25 p.m.

Negan from Walking dead

varryochoco said on August 19, 2014 at 8:25 p.m.

I pick Redeemer from Spawn if Spawn appears in MK-X.
It will be nice to see Redeemer get destroyed by Spawn. :P

Hellboy vs Kroenen

Marius from Ryse: Son of Rome.

A character from Sunset Overdrive.

It will be fun to let Peter Griffin join the crew.

Afro Samurai?
Angel from Angel?
Spike from Buffy The Vampire Slayer?
Robot Chicken?

JTCircus said on August 19, 2014 at 8:48 p.m.

George Zimmerman
Casey Anthony
Oj Simpson

They are all experienced in murder and no one would mind having them brutally killed. Perfect fits.

Ninjagoon said on August 19, 2014 at 9 p.m.

my top 5 wishlist:

(i'm sticking to WB properties since they are more likely to make it in.)

1. Constantine (DC Comics)
2. King Leonidas (300)
3. Dr. Manhattan (Watchmen)
4. Babydoll (Sucker Punch)
5. Aragorn/Legolas (or the new guy from that LOTR game thats coming out)

Sage_Liebert said on August 19, 2014 at 9:31 p.m.

Kenshiro fist of the north star

danistheman said on August 19, 2014 at 9:54 p.m.

Predator or Jason. Only ones that are feasible.

Alpharyu said on August 19, 2014 at 10:22 p.m.

I'd rather NRS work on making new fighters instead of guest characters.

TheTHCGamer said on August 19, 2014 at 10:44 p.m.

I'd be cool with Spawn, Ash and Jason.

Inzzane said on August 19, 2014 at 10:48 p.m.

Instead of a locust drone chose RAAM!

swordsman09 said on August 20, 2014 at midnight

But Killer Instinct...

Sasuga said on August 20, 2014 at 12:17 a.m.

My personal favorites for in an MK game are Spawn and Pinhead/cenobites. Or having cenobite alts for the whole cast! Cenobites over zombies anyday, everyday.

Or else, the liquid terminator. T1000.

Cheeseymayhem123 said on August 20, 2014 at 5:43 a.m.


Eternal said on August 20, 2014 at 5:53 a.m.

Predator and Jason seem like great fits with potentially interesting fighting styles.

Ash I don't think has even half a chance of ever happening simply because Sam Raimi wouldn't let Ash get fatalitied.

Terminator would be great but I think only if they can't get Jason. Both of them kind of are the same sort of "unstoppable unfeeling forces" and having two would be kind of overkill in terms of character design.

Robocop could work, especially the classic era Robocop could be like a slow moving but heavy damage zoner.

I'm surprised no mention of Deadpool. I mean, sure he was in Marvel 3 just recently, but if you go look at his comics the whole series has been about "ultraviolence" over the top head exploding violence. He was basically Lobo without the satire but with more snark.

Lobo would be a great fit as well as others have stated.

I'd like throw in The Maxx as well.

Also Travis Touchdown!

Spiktacular said on August 20, 2014 at 6:40 a.m.

I'd like to see Sweet Tooth, Solid Snake, or Predator!

Mutaki said on August 20, 2014 at 6:51 a.m.

Playstation exclusive: Nariku
Xbox exclusive: Fulgore
Console neutral: Spawn, Lobo, Hayabusa, Predator

Evorgleb said on August 20, 2014 at 6:52 a.m.

So Predator is an obvious choice since Boon has already hinted at him (them). One thing Im surprised people are not mentioning is that Netherrealm are owned by Warner who also owns DC. Thus any of DC's more violent characters should be in play. Lobo, Deathstroke, ect.

Chunners said on August 20, 2014 at 9:31 a.m.

Lara Croft with all her weapons.

Slamtastic said on August 20, 2014 at 9:41 a.m.

Raiden (MGR)

slushoman said on August 20, 2014 at 11:04 a.m.

Riki Oh please

unicron42 said on August 20, 2014 at 11:51 a.m.


Paramisery said on August 20, 2014 at 12:34 p.m.

Please Ash, seriously. I'd buy whichever console had him on it.

blzd said on August 20, 2014 at 12:55 p.m.

if Capcom won't let SF characters gets killed I'm sure KI won't have an issue with that it might be interesting to see

tidestick said on August 20, 2014 at 6:03 p.m.

I just thought of someone. THE INTERGALACTIC SCUMDOG LORD ODERUS URUNGUS! yeah. he be great.

Kharyus said on August 20, 2014 at 8:59 p.m.

Rick from splatterhouse.

Unk_Br said on August 22, 2014 at 6:29 p.m.
