The Mortal Kombat 11 roster is going to be one of the most interesting aspects of the game. Who will NetherRealm choose to put in the game and who to leave out? What characters are coming in the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack? While we likely won’t know the full lineup until release, here is the current MK11 roster.
Mortal Kombat 11 roster – All officially confirmed characters
Out of the 25 slots on the character select screen, there are only currently nine officially confirmed characters for the Mortal Kombat 11 roster. This also includes the six DLC fighters coming in the Kombat Pack and Shao Kahn, the pre-order bonus that will be sold separately as well. The MK11 roster is:
- Sonya Blade
- Liu Kang (shown in gameplay trailer at :27 mark)
- Shao Kahn (pre-order DLC)
Mortal Kombat 11 roster – All strongly rumored characters
This one is a bit more tricky since, like just about every fighting game, there are a ton of hints and teases. These fighters have not been officially confirmed by NetherRealm or Warner Bros. but have been shown or teased in one way or another. This batch is a pretty safe bet despite not being talked about in detail.
- Cassie Cage
— She is shown in the behind the scenes trailer at the 1:13 mark. When zoomed in, her dogtags read “Cassie.”
— Cassie Cage refers to her in the above trailer. She’s also in the behind the scenes trailer at the :58 mark.
- Kung Lao
— He was also shown alongside Liu Kang in the story trailer but hasn’t been shown in a gameplay setting yet.
- Erron Black
— The partially leaked Steam achievements look to have a character with “Err” as the first three letters.
Mortal Kombat 11 roster – All rumored characters
Here is where it gets way more tricky. Much of the game’s reveal event was leaked ahead of time, which gives some credence to these leaks but are a bit lower on the rumor spectrum. In essence, these should be taken with some salt.
- Kano’s son, who is rumored to be named Dominic
— Kano can be seen in the Black Dragon Fight Klub stage as well as in one of the menus in the above image. However, small rumors have pointed to it being a son of Kano. (Update: Kano was confirmed on January 31 but there are still rumors of Kano’s son being in the game as well.)
- Johnny Cage
— Someone who faintly looks like Mr. Cage can be seen in the behind the scenes trailer at 2:46 in the background on one of the computers.
- Noob Saibot
— He can be seen in an icon in one of the Time Towers.
— Also shown in one of the icons on the main menu in the above image.
— While the antagonist, it’s not currently know if she will be a playable character.
— While it could be a generic ninja, there is a grayish ninja on one of the menu in the game that sort of resembles human Smoke.
There are a ton of other rumors and leaks that could be true but are running just a bit thin to be fully considered. For example, this “leak,” which was one of the bigger ones before the reveal, says that Baraka won’t be in the game. He is, which dampers whatever else is in it.
