Though there's been speculation in the past, the prospect of seeing a Mortal Kombat character join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as DLC feels like one that probably won't ever happen. While we could see a heavily toned down version of a Mortal Kombat warrior join the battle, the highly gory nature the series is known for likely wouldn't jive well with the kid-friendly atmosphere of Smash Bros.

That hasn't stopped people from imagining what such a crossover could look like, though. This flip-book animation of Scorpion performing a Final Smash on Kirby in Smash Bros. Ultimate from DannerM5 is evidence of that, and it's already caught the attention of NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon.

John Rambo is often treated as a super soldier that hasn't undergone any genetic enhancements like Captain America, but his incarnation in Mortal Kombat 11 makes him look powerful enough to go toe-to-toe with the gods themselves.

We're still reeling from the exciting Rambo Kombat Kast put on by NetherRealm Studios earlier this week, but even a star as big as Rambo was not able to fully elbow out mentions of who very well may be the most anticipated addition to Mortal Kombat 11 yet: Mileena.
