The Mortal Kombat series is already well established with bizarre and mystifying characters that capture our imaginations and then make our stomachs tighten by the myriad of creative ways in which they destroy each other. It’s quite the variety show. Nonetheless, it’s not uncommon that every show has its lulls and less than exciting attractions. Of the over 64 characters in Mortal Kombat, they can’t all be zingers, right? Yep, in fact, there are quite a few characters in the series that are decidedly not winning any awards for design.

When the Mortal Kombat team was working under Midway and up to Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, there was going to be some quality lost trying to stuff 62 characters into one game. Sometimes, characters were easter eggs and secrets that had gone rotten with overexposure. Sometimes they were just unimaginative spin-offs of other characters and doomed from the start. Finally, sometimes, there were characters that were just written ridiculously, even for Mortal Kombat standards.
