It's clear that we need more horror villains on Mortal Kombat X, but what about the horror movie heroes we love? I mean, if Jason is capable of wreaking havoc like THIS, who better than a horror heroine to put him down?
Hopefully we'll see a full horror beat-em-up game before long, but until that point, I'll be satisfied just to see more horror characters on awesome games like Mortal Kombat X...
1. Ash Williams
''Hail to the king, Baby!''
- Hero of: Evil Dead
- Similar Heroes Who Could Appear in MKX: Daryl Dixon (The Walking Dead), Brodie (Deathgasm), Tallahassee (Zombieland)
Yeah, you knew it was coming. He proved his mettle against the deadites and now we need him to smash some more ugly faces. Imagine blasting Goro's head apart as Ash: life complete.
Fatality: This Is My Boomstick — Ash boomsticks his foe into a million bloody pieces, the force of the shot blasting one eye out a la Evil Dead 2, which twirls into the air before landing in the victim's mouth.
2. Alice Abernathy
''I became different. Powerful. Unstoppable.''
- Heroine of: Resident Evil series
- Similar Heroines Who Could Appear in MKX: Ángela Vidal (REC), Michonne (The Walking Dead)
Another zombie-slayer but with more acrobatic skills and upgraded weaponry, Alice — as portrayed by Milla Jovovich in the Resident Evil movies — kicks serious undead ass and could easily give the horror villains a run for their money.
Fatality: T-Virus — Alice stabs her opponent in the eye with a syringe loaded with the zombifiying T-Virus. Their flesh bubbles and splits as the massive dosage courses through their system, reducing them to a spluttering, undead heap of bone and mush.
3. Ellen Ripley
''Get away from her, you bitch!''
- Heroine of: Alien series
- Similar Heroines Who Could Appear in MKX: Sara Connor (Terminator), Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
There's never been anyone as badass as Ellen Ripley before or since. She's fought off acid-spitting otherworldly beasts, so a little thing like a crazed human killing machine isn't gonna trouble her all that much...
Fatality: Little Girl — Ripley summons Newt, who materializes and shreds the opponent to pieces with her nails until they are nothing more than a skeleton surrounded by a mist of blood.
''I won't let anyone come between us any more.''
- Heroine of: High Tension
- Similar Heroines Who Could Appear in MKX: Jennifer Check (Jennifer's Body), Hayley Stark (Hard Candy)
Anyone who's seen High Tension knows that there's more to Marie that meets the eye, and it's her shock factor that would work well on screen. Plenty of gore and an adaptable fight style would bring Marie's New French Extremity moves to life.
Fatality: That Looks 'Saw' — Marie conjures a giant, motor-powered circular saw and shreds her opponent apart, digging the whirring blade deep within their chest until they crack in two.
5. Sidney Prescott
''Why don't you come for me, you got the balls for that?''
- Heroine of: Scream series
- Similar Heroines Who Could Appear in MKX: Clarice Starling (The Silence of the Lambs), Laurie Strode (Halloween), Erin (You're Next)
A veteran of four horror movie showdowns, Sidney is smart, acerbic and just so totally done with your psycho shit. Nothing surprises her anymore, and she will not hesitate to sink a kitchen knife between the shoulder blades of any villain unwise enough to challenge her.
Fatality: Don't Fuck With The Original — Sid calmly draws out a gun and shoots her opponent, execution style, once in the head and twice in the chest. This attracts a crowd of reporters hassling her for her story, who run away when she hurls her dead opponent's body at them.
