Here you will find all characters currently confirmed for the Mortal Kombat 11 roster. See them (and the characters shown and implied to be fighters) in the list below.
Originally introduced in MK 2, Baraka is a Tarkatan warrior with two long blades extending out of his forearms.
Cassie is the daughter of Johnny Cage, and perhaps the only character whose name makes a hard “C” sound and isn’t spelled with a “K”.
Cetrion is a brand new character. While not much is known about her involvement in the story, we do know that this kombatant’s moveset features elemental abilities.
A recent addition and returning fighter from Mortal Kombat 10, D’vorah is a unique kombatant who has insects living inside her – and can use them and pincers that extend from her back to eviscerate her prey.
A brand new character to the franchise, Geras‘ origin is unknown, though he is known to serve Kronika. He can shift time, experiencing it at faster or slower speeds than mortals, and his physical weapons manifest out of sand and stone.
The returning assassin, Jade is back in Mortal Kombat 11 with her signature staff and bag of tricks, and can use deadly projectiles, and even use her staff to reflect attacks.
Also returning from Mortal Kombat 10, Jacqui is the daughter of Jax, and a good friend of Cassie Cage, and brings her armored suit complete with remote explosives to the fight.
Series veteran Jax Briggs returns for Mortal Kombat 11 with his cybernetic prosthetic enhancements. He’s part of the Special Forces.
Everyone’s favorite movie star turned fighter for Earth Realm has returned, complete with his signature style and sunglasses, and yes, he can beat you to death with his award trophies.
With MK11’s time traveling story – you’ll be able to see not one but two incarnations of Johnny during the story.
A competitor in the Mortal Kombat tournaments since the beginning, Kano is the leader of the Black Dragon, a criminal organization comprised mainly of mercenaries and killers. He was last seen at the end of Mortal Kombat X beginning a brutal training program for the Black Dragon – his first pupil being his own son.
Originally the princess of Edenia, the daughter of Sindel now rules the Netherealm alongside Revanent Liu Kang.
Kitana was finally confirmed as a playable character in a MK11 Official TV Spot.
Though the Kollector is a new character in the Mortal Kombat series, NetherRealm revealed during a Kombat Kast that he’s been loyal to Shao Kahn for along time. His race is named after their vocation, and as the Kollector‘s name suggests, he was in charge of collecting tributes for Shao Kahn.
NetherRealm said he has more of a “master of none” toolkit as he uses things he’s collected (with four of his six arms) for his abilities.
First debuted in Mortal Kombat 10, Kotal Khan led an insurrection to become the current Emperor of the Outworld, and uses vicious weapons with a Mayan influence.
After having been killed in Mortal Kombat 9, then resurrected by Shinnok in Mortal Kombat 10, we see two versions of Kung Lao – a “normal” version and a revenant (undead) version – facing off in one of the trailers for MK11.
Apparently the chief antagonist of the MK11’s story, Kronika‘s quest for power requires her to alter the timelines distorted during the events of MK9 and Mortal Kombat X.
The ghostly wraith and his shadowy body double – Noo Saibot returns from the shadows to strike again in Mortal Kombat 11.
While Raiden has long been a force for good in the world of Mortal Kombat, the events of Mortal Kombat X and the reveal trailer for MK11 show us a much darker version of the God of Thunder. This is potentially due to the process of purifying the Jinsei Chamber in Earthrealm’s Sky Temple from elder god Shinnok’s dark energy.
Scorpion has appeared in every Mortal Kombat since the original arcade game. Two versions of Scorpion are seen in the reveal trailer, perhaps hinting at either alternate character skins or a multiverse crossover.
Sonya Blade returns for the 11th time in MK11, and is played by UFC champion Ronda Rousey.
Returning for the first time since appearing as DLC for Mortal Kombat 9, Skarlet‘s attacks focus on blood magic.
The infamous leader of the Lin-Kuei returns to battle evil (or perhaps good) alongside the other Earthrealm kombatants.
The following characters have been confirmed to be playable as DLC fighters following the game’s release, or by pre-ordering the game.
Defeated at the end of Mortal Kombat 9 (and, like, every other MK game ever), Shao Kahn is a pre-order bonus fighter. It can be inferred that he is still alive in an alternate timeline, which enables him to appear in the character roster.
The longtime veteran and master sorcerer known as Shang Tsung returns to Mortal Kombat 11 as its first DLC character.
