No Face



Other appearances: Mortal Kombat X (Fred Tatasciore)

  • Ascended Extra: He started out as a boss in an obscure spin-off game, was promoted to a random "bonus fighter" in the Play Station Vita port of Mortal Kombat 9, and ended up a full-fledged playable character in MKX.
  • Awesome but Impractical: In large-scale battles, his ability to cause earthquakes can easily make a joint Shokan-Oni army lose their footing... and risk making collateral damage to nearby cities. Hence why Kano recalled him after a while and shoot a handheld nuke at Kintaro's army.
  • The Big Guy: Out of Kano's team in the MKX comic.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: His primary power set.
  • Downloadable Content: In the Kombat Pack for Mortal Kombat X.
  • Earthquakes Cause Fissures: Almost brings down Kotal Kahn's palace when making an entrance.
  • Magma Man: See Playing with fire below.
  • Ninja: Or at least ninja-esque.
  • Playing with Fire: Invoked in that he appears to shoot fireballs, though based on his elemental power it's actually molten rock.
  • Revenge: In the Non-canon Challenge Tower missions, he is presented as having a vendetta against Jax, for besting him, and Kano, for using him as an expendable pawn leaving him for dead.
  • Shockwave Stomp: His main ability; he can create earthquakes by punching the ground, like Jax.
    • In issue 20 of the "MK X comic" he used this technique to decimate Kintaro's army. After a while, Kano recalled him because he could risk making Z'unkahrah fall.
  • Taken for Granite: Another of his abilities. He can fire a stone missile that petrifies his opponent for a short duration.
  • Unexpected Character: Shows up in the Vita version of Mortal Kombat 9 as one of the playable characters of the Challenge Tower, with most of Jax and Smoke's moveset and some modified specials of Sub-Zero's.
    • And then he came back for Mortal Kombat X as DLC and a regular playable fighter with a unique moveset.
