An ever so eerie rumble has been felt beneath the feet of the entire Mortal Kombat X kombatants for some time now. The ground shook, moaned and cracked as we drew ever closer to the release of the infamous Mortal Kombat character, Tremor!

Who Is Tremor?

Tremor is back and is looking for blood to quench his thirst for revenge. Known widely as the 'lost brown ninja', Tremor is a fighter that originates from Mortal Kombat: Special Forces. Tremor has been lurking in the depths of Mortal Kombat history for years. Tremor's skill set could allow him to be one of the series' most powerful characters and has been sorely missed by the fans.

"Tremor is an assassin working freelance. He was once a member of the Lin Kuei along with Sub-Zero, but left the clan under mysterious circumstances. Years later, Tremor is found working for Shao Kahn as an assassin in the Outworld. Born a human, he finds himself questioning his loyalty towards Kahn after watching the invasion of Earth." Wiki

Tremor is an Earth Elemento, he can harness the power of the earth's elements and use them to fulfill his brutal will. Tremor's most iconic ability from the past is one in which he causes the earth to shake and crack causing the opponents to lose balance and cost them a great degree of health. This power returns in some serious style.

Tremor is also able to shoot fire or summon lava and throw it at his foes using an ability called a 'Fire blast'. He is also able to stun his enemies from a distance using what's known as an 'Earth blast. Tremor has learnt a few new tricks in this latest edition of Mortal Kombat. One of which is an 'Air grab' type move which allows the infamous fighter to manhandle his opponent from a distance.

The Sheer Brutality!

Tremor has never really been a fully playable character to date. Originating from MK: Special Forces as a cutscene character, it wasn't until MK9 that players got somewhat limited access to play as Tremor.

Mortal Kombat X however brings Tremor's power to the people. Enjoy!

The guys at NetherRealm have put a lot of energy and time into the creation of a real playable Tremor character and I honestly believe that they have done the best job possible.

Inventive brutalities and brilliantly gory fatalities will ensure that the fans of the series will take as much pleasure as possible from his inclusion in Mortal Kombat X. The number one moment from the above video for me though, had to be that exchange at the end.

Tremor 1: Impostor Scum!
Tremor 2: Sticks and Stones,
Tremor 1: I have those too
Me: Awwww Snap!

A Secret Brutality

That's right, there is a secret brutality that is not listed in the official Netherrealm bio for Tremor. Players across the globe are now frantically button bashing their way through their favourite MKX characters in an effort to find secret brutalities.

This comes about after Youtuber, ReallySmallProductions accidentally stumbled upon an all new secret brutality for Tremor. There are apparently more hidden brutalities hidden amongst the games' other fighters. Have you found any?

Tremor was the last of the announced Kombat Pack characters to hit Mortal Kombat X. This however is not likely to be that last we hear from NetherRealm, rumours are already circulating surrounding the introduction of another iconic horror character.

Or, could we see the kings of kombat head in another direction altogether? Superhero fans worldwide have been crying out for a new comic book based fighter. Could we see NetherRealm take on a new Justice league?
