Johnny Cage Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate moves


Tier Ranking: 11th MK11 Tiers Popularity: 14th

Johnny Cage was part of Mortal Kombat 11's 25 character starting lineup, and was available to play upon the game's release back on April 23, 2019.

One of the most recognizable Mortal Kombat characters since he debuted with the series back on October 8, 1992, Johnny has proven to be consistently as charismatic as he is egotistical, garnering almost as many fans in real life as he has in the franchise's story.

As a mere human, Johnny's physical appearance has changed a decent bit more in Mortal Kombat 11 than some of the other routinely seen combatants. He's older than ever now with gray hair and a few extra lines on his face, now donning a brown tactical vest as he helps out the Special Forces. Though he's now more about helping others than himself (to an extent) he still begs for attention with his trademark sunglasses and giant "CAGE" belt buckle.

Johnny brings back all his old favorite attacks like the Shadow Kick and green force ball projectile. He can, of course, still go low and give male opponents a devastating shot to the groin with his splits punch, and will even go as far as to throw his $500 sunglasses at foes.

The OG Mortal Kombat fighter excels at the strike/throw mix up game as his combos and strings are fairly painful to get hit by. Said strings are long enough that players can often confirm hits into Johnny's low blow (which can then lead into continued combos). Opponents will want to clam up and make sure they block any and all incoming strikes, which leaves them open to being thrown more often by Johnny than other characters.

Because of his strong pressure and relatively high damage output, Mr. Cage is often placed higher up on pro player tier rankings. It's not at all uncommon to see him placed in the top 10 of the entire roster, making him a powerful pick for those who like winning and talking smack after doing so.

Johnny Cage is one of Mortal Kombat's most beloved characters and has been for some three decades. It's wonderful to see that he's been made to be both entertaining and viable in Mortal Kombat 11.
