Kano Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate moves


Tier Ranking: 34th MK11 Tiers Popularity: 19th

Kano 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.

The leader of the Black Dragon criminal organization, Kano has been making black market deals and betraying temporary allies since the first Mortal Kombat game dropped back on October 8, 1992.

Very much recognizable in Mortal Kombat 11 thanks in no small part to his glowing red cybernetic eye, Kano keeps things simple when it comes to appearance. He wears only a pair of green pants with holsters for his knives and is bare chested save for a Bandolier that holds his cybernetic heart (presumably having donated his initial one to children in need).

This new and improved heart actually serves Kano in battle in multiple ways as it provides enhancements to his cybernetic abilities. He can create a kind of magnetic force to pull enemies close, blast energy beams from it, and even toss it out onto the battlefield to serve as a kind of land mine.

Kano boasts hit-confirmable strings that are plus on block, giving him incredibly important tools to go far in Mortal Kombat 11. His forward 1+2, back 2 has a ton of utility, but does not work against a handful of characters (Johnny, Jacqui, Joker, Kitana, Nightwolf, and a few others) as the second attack will whiff.

Like many characters in MK11, Kano is mostly about getting up close and putting on strong strike pressure juxtaposed with throw and command grab mix ups from time to time. He excels at this, but is also great at mid range thanks to his longer reaching specials that can threaten big damage from medium distance. His pull is a very fast mid that ropes the opponent in for a full combo on hit, causing opponents to always be distracted with its potential.

Though not necessarily a top 10 kind of character, Kano tends to rank relatively higher up on pro player tier lists. He has a fine projectile that he can use when far away, excels at the mid range thanks to his pull and forward-moving attacks, and is at his most threatening when up close.

A Mortal Kombat OG with more charm than ever, Kano's Mortal Kombat 11 appearance is one of his absolute best yet. Become the bad guy without any guilt as you greedily knife, spit, and blast your way to the top with this strong character.
