In this Mortal Kombat 11 characters guide, we'll be putting together a full Mortal Kombat 11 roster based upon all the confirmed characters so far, as well as a section detailing the rumored characters for the game.
But if there’s any additional information you need on the upcoming game, you can check out our full Mortal Kombat 11 guide. Here you can find a list of platforms that the game is coming to in April, as well as all the details on the upcoming beta that we know of so far.
Mortal Kombat 11 Characters
To date, the entire Mortal Kombat 11 character roster hasn’t been fully revealed. There’s still a fair few characters that have been teased but unconfirmed by Ed Boon or anyone else on the development team right now. Below, we’ve compiled all the characters that have been confirmed for Mortal Kombat 11 so far.
- Liu Kang
- Shao Kahn
- Sonya Blade
- Cassie Cage
- Jacqui Briggs
- Erron Black
- Kotal Kahn
This nasty looking character was introduced all the way back in Mortal Kombat 2. Baraka has razor-sharp teeth, and blades on both his forearms.
A pretty unique-looking fighter for Mortal Kombat 11, D’Vorah was only introduced back in the previous entry. She actually has living bugs inside of her, apparently, as well as wings and pincers that extend from her back.
Geras is actually a brand new addition to the Mortal Kombat franchise. He can manifest weapons out of sand and stone, and can only speed up and slow down time for opponents.
A returning fighter from past entries in the Mortal Kombat franchise, Kabal has two pretty deadly looking twin blades in each hand. I actually think they look quite like Keyblades.
Kano is a character that’s been around since the literal beginning of the entire Mortal Kombat franchise. He’s the head of the Black Dragon, a deadly force of mercenaries and killers, and last appeared in Mortal Kombat X.
Another original character from the beginnings of the Mortal Kombat franchise is Liu Kang, a fighter that makes a comeback in Mortal Kombat 11.
We first saw Raiden all the way back in the reveal trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, late last year. The God of Thunder actually looked pretty dark in the trailer, typically going against his nature of fighting against evil.
Well, it wouldn’t be a Mortal Kombat game without Scorpion. The iconic character first appeared in the very first Mortal Kombat, and he’s back in Mortal Kombat 11 once again, having been revealed alongside Raiden in the debut trailer for the game.
While he was defeated at the end of Mortal Kombat 9, Shao Kahn makes a return (somehow) in Mortal Kombat 11. However he’s currently only available as a pre-order character for the game, so you’ll have to pay in advance to gain access to him.
The Blade’s back once again for Mortal Kombat 11. The only difference this time is that she’s actually voiced by former UFC champion Ronda Rousey.
Skarlet’s attacks typically focus on blood magic, and Mortal Kombat 11 marks the first time she’s been featured in a game since appearing as a DLC character for Mortal Kombat 9.
Just like Scorpion, it wouldn’t really be a Mortal Kombat game without Sub-Zero having a part to play. The icy leader returns once again aside other Earthrealm fighters.
In mid February, Jade was finally revealed to be returning in Mortal Kombat 11. Jade is a big fan favorite in the Mortal Kombat universe, but hasn't been seen since the rebooted game from 2011. She's back in Mortal Kombat 11 as an apparent servant of the Netherealm, resurrected from the dead.
Just below, you can see the trailer in which Cassie Cage was confirmed as a fighter in Mortal Kombat 11. As you might have guessed, Cassie is the daughter of Johnny Cage, and Sonya Blade.
Speaking of Cassie Cage, Jacqui Briggs is a close friends of hers, and will be joining Cassie as a fighter in Mortal Kombat 11. Briggs was a new introduction for the series back in Mortal Kombat X.
Another character that made their debut in Mortal Kombat 11 is Erron Black, returning for Mortal Kombat 11. This cowboy-like fighter wields revolvers, a repeating rifle, caltrops, and a Tarkatan blade.
Kotal Kahn returns from Mortal Kombat 11, in which he made his series debut as one of the antagonists of the story mode. While Kahn might have the appearance of an Aztec warrior, he hails from the Outerworld.
Mortal Kombat 11 Rumored Characters Coming to the Roster
With every Mortal Kombat game, there's always speculation about which fighters could be added to the roster down the road. With Mortal Kombat 11 this is no different, and so while the characters below have been featured in promo material for the game (trailers, screenshots, etc.), they haven't actually been confirmed as playable characters as of right now.
- Kitana - A former princess that now rules the Netherealm, Kitana has only been referenced in Mortal Kombat 11, and never actually seen in gameplay.
- Kung Lao - So far we’ve seen two versions of Kung Lao in Mortal Kombat 11 footage: a normal version, and a seemingly undead version.
- Kronika - Kronika is actually the main antagonist of the story in Mortal Kombat 11, and she can supposedly distort and alter timelines.
As of right now, this is a complete list of all the fighters available in Mortal Kombat 11. As soon as any additional characters are announced, we’ll make sure to update this guide straight away.
