Pro Mortal Kombat player loses to the series' most ridiculous Brutality in this hilarious Mortal Kombat X clip

The Mortal Kombat series has a ton of silly finishers that players are able to use in order to put a stamp on their victory. From the myriad of lighthearted Friendships to Quan Chi's neck stretch Fatality, you can find some ridiculous stuff in the most violent mainstream fighting game series around. However, none of them are quite as ridiculous as a certain Brutality in Mortal Kombat X...

Pro NetherRealm Studios game player Mr. Aquaman shared a clip on Twitter in which he took a loss to the most absurd Brutality the franchise has to offer. That's right, here in 2022 this player got caught by none other than the "Blanche" finisher, and it's just as funny now as it was back in 2015.

Now, you might be wondering who or what Blanche is. Well, in Mortal Kombat X's Outworld Marketplace stage there exists an old woman who hangs out in the background while the kombatants fight.

This old woman is actually an interactable, which means players can hit a button next to her and, well... use her as a weapon. Doing so will see the fighter pick up the senior citizen and chuck her across the stage at their foe for a quick hit.

Back when NRS was showcasing Mortal Kombat X in their periodic "Kombat Kast" streams, the developers deemed this old woman "Blanche" as a reference to the character of the same name in the hit 1980s TV show The Golden Girls. Funny enough, ol' Blanche in Mortal Kombat X can actually be used to trigger a Brutality, and with it this old gal gets her revenge for being thrown so many times when a player successfully performs it.

In the clip, Mr. Aquaman is taking on a Jason Voorhees player online as his Kotal Kahn attempts to mount a comeback. Though the first half of the footage is looking good for the pro, eventually he throws the Jason player down right in front of Blanche, and unfortunately for Mr. Aquaman, his Kotal Kahn only has a small chunk of health left in his life bar after doing so.

The Jason player gets up, and as a means to counter Kotal's oncoming shield toss grabs Blanche and launches her right across the screen armoring through the projectile. The old woman finds her mark, takes the remainder of Kotal's health, and after the Brutality is activated she proceeds to, well... pummel the sun god to death with her fists.

Knowing just how ridiculous the Brutality is and how unfortunate it is to get hit by it, Mr. Aquaman lets out a yell and immediately gets up and walks away from his stream station. "I can't believe she got me in 2022," he wrote about Blanche in the accompanying tweet.
