Mortal Kombat 11: 10 Gaming Icons Who MUST Guest Star

The Doom Slayer would eviscerate MK's entire roster.

Mortal Kombat is a series known for many things. Brutal violence, wince-inducing gore, a thick layer of black comedy and a metric ton of early 1990s cheesiness. However, in more recent years the Mortal Kombat series has become known for something else... weird and wonderful guest fighters.

From Jason Voorhees to Kratos, ever since 2011's Mortal Kombat, guest fighters have become a beloved series staple (even extending to DC-flavoured sister series Injustice). It's very hard to not speculate, then, which pop culture icons will be appearing in the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11.

While there are many articles already conducting some healthy speculation as to which film and comic book characters will appear in the sequel, one field of pop culture has been neglected in this imaginary shortlist of desired fighters; Mortal Kombat's own backyard, is the realm of video games.

Let us know down in the comments which video game heroes or villains you want to see appear in MK. Some are better fits than others...
