Hidden Character.) Nimbus Terrafaux
What's a list of Mortal Kombat characters without a hidden character? As you learned from our list, Mortal Kombat has always had a veil of mystery surrounding it -- you never quite feel like you've discovered everything. That was definitely the case with the original Mortal Kombat. Along with Reptile and fans frantically trying to discover what exactly an Ermac was, there was another secret that to this day was never found. That's because this character never existed...
That character was Nimbus Terrafaux. Ed Boon had talked of the kickboxer in an interview with EGM magazine, but the story of Nimbus ended there. Until the April 1994 issue of the magazine when the team posted the first "evidence" of Nimbus' existence -- which later turned out to be an April Fool's prank, something that the publication was notorious for.
I can't even begin to tell you how many hours I spent trying to unlock Nimbus thanks to those evil bastards at EGM. You should have seen how red my face was when the next issue arrived. I should have known better considering they got me only two years prior with the notorious Sheng Long hoax. Now I'm skeptical of any news story I read within a month or so of April 1st. Thanks EGM!
