Mortal Kombat is a series that has been around for a long time. It survived the shift from 2D to 3D, ushered in the ESRB ratings system, and bounced back from several mediocre instalments. To put it mildly, it's an incredibly storied franchise that has stood the test of time.
Therefore it should come as no surprise to newer MK fans that the series has undergone quite a few changes over the years. While the current iteration of the game closely resembles the original, albeit massively evolved, the series hasn't shied away from changing up the formula. There has been 3D versions, RPG versions, and even a beat-em-up version! With those myriad instalments and almost two decades worth of content, it's only natural that there have been a number of cool characters who have since disappeared down The Pit.
There are more than a dozen great Mortal Kombat characters that have been left by the wayside as the series has changed and evolved. Today we want to walk back through the realms to pull out some of the more obscure ones who deserve a second lease on life - or at least an opportunity to be brutally murdered once again.
