Joker Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate moves


Tier Ranking: 14th MK11 Tiers Popularity: 22nd

Joker joined the roster of Mortal Kombat 11 as one of the first Kombat Pack DLC newcomers on January 28, 2020.

The Clown Prince of Crime is actually not new to the MK universe as he first mixed it up with the likes of Scorpion and Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, which released on November 16, 2008.

Joker dons his iconic purple suit (complete with boutonnière, of course) in his Mortal Kombat 11 guest appearance, also sporting his green hair, white skin, a snazzy green shirt, and pin stripe pants. He also has a cane that he swings wildly in most intro sequences, and uses prominently while fighting.

In Mortal Kombat 11, Joker exceeds at fighting from just a bit further out than most other characters like to. This is thanks to his extremely good "Ehh" standing 2, which reaches far and fast from a range where most opponents are not effective. Using his Jack in the Box attack in strings can place him at the perfect distance for standing 2 to be most effective, and once he scores a hit he's able to lop off incredible damage.

What's more, Joker has some of the best corner control in all MK11. If he's able to push a foe here, he can often take the round as a result. Pair these strengths with his exceptional neutral jump and versatile Krushing Blow, and you have yourself a very capable character.

Pro players tend to rank Joker as a top five character on Mortal Kombat 11's roster. He takes some tact, for sure, but once you understand how to take advantage of his uniquely powerful flow and spacing abilities, he can win major tournaments.

Joker is a perfect fit for the grit, gore, and often tongue in cheek joke filled atmosphere of Mortal Kombat. He's a very good character, competitively speaking, and a household name that just about anyone can have fun with.
