Being an OG within the Mortal Kombat space, there is no way we would not be able to include him in our top 5 tier list. His active use of ninja weapons makes him highly skilled in combat. Scorpion's fast movement also makes him a difficult character to corner mid-match.

Although Jax Briggs may be a bit slower when it comes to fighting, the character still packs quite a punch when in combat. When other fighters lose their speed, Briggs jumps in and absolutely dominates the playing field. Defensive players beware; Briggs will break you if you sit still for too long.

3. Liu Kang

Unlike Jax Briggs, Liu Kang is equipped with extreme speed, making him a difficult opponent to face. With his mix of quick momentum and raging fire, the character evokes a fighting ability that makes him superior to others.

Kang is an easy pick for players looking to win the majority of their matches.

2. Frost

Unlike Kang, Frost is the complete opposite with her skillsets. The skilled frozen character is just as fast, but instead of fire, she has the ability to freeze her opponents. Her incredible speed makes her almost untouchable with other characters.

Her icy punch is lethal, making her a top competitor in Mortal Kombat 11.

1. Baraka
