Kotal Kahn Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate moves


Tier Ranking: 37th MK11 Tiers Popularity: 20th

Kotal Kahn 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.

His very first playable appearance came when Mortal Kombat X dropped on April 7, 2015, and thus his combo has continued as he's been playable in two MK entries in a row.

Kotal has green skin, glowing green eyes, and surprisingly little armor covering vital organs for a warrior emperor. He dons a helmet with many green feathers that protrude from the back, golden armor plates on his shoulders, and a massive Macuahuitl sword on his back.

Mr. Kahn has very good reach with his forward moving attacks, making his preferred distance a little more than an arm's length away. This makes him a strong whiff punishing character who naturally causes opponents to hesitate in fear of being smacked, and thus his quick dash paired with his command grab become the natural progression of his game plan.

As is usually the case with characters who excel at the mid range, Kotal's attacks don't serve him as well when he's up close. A command grab is always nice for close quarters combat, but his striking attacks are built to be effective from farther away, making for relatively poor defense. Also, he relies a bit too much on his forward+2 attack to get things started, and foes who are able to play around it effectively will give him a hard time.

Despite being one of the highest ranking characters in the lore, Kotal Kahn tends to struggle on tier lists. He's not necessarily a bottom 10 fighter, but pros don't usually place him just a bit above, if not in it. When the rhythm is in his favor, it's great, but it can be a world of pain when his opponent has the advantage.

The mind games one can play with Kotal Kahn are especially fun as he really wants to stay one step ahead of his foe by shifting gears at the appropriate times. He can play patiently, he can suddenly dive in and go for strikes or for command grabs, and this can be wonderfully daunting and overwhelming to foes.
