    Kai is like the most forgettable MK character ever. He's not even remembered when people are naming the worst characters.
    Jarek is only memorable for being in those hilarious endings with Sonya and Jax. He should have just been Kano.
    Tanya and Fujin were okay, they've actually been improved in more recent games.
    Reiko was intriguing when they insinuated he might be Shao Kahn, then that theory was shot down and he had nothing going for him.
    Shinnok just couldn't hold a candle to Shao Kahn as the replacement main villain.
    Quan Chi was really the only good one.

      >Reiko was intriguing when they insinuated he might be Shao Kahn
      Never understood this, him being a Shao Kahn protégé is way more interesting than him just secretly being Shao Kahn and changing his clothes and name for no reason

        I don't think that Reiko was Shao Kahn's "protegé", he was just some guy that worked for him. If they actually had some kind of close relationship that might be interesting.
        >for no reason
        Well we thought there would be reason. An undercover Shao Kahn seemed like a setup for something big later, but then it was nothing. All of this is just to say that Reiko was not a cool or interesting character.

    quan chi was fine. shinnok/fujin/tanya were alright. overall mk4 was pretty much when the series jumped the shark for me. i found this game disappointing at the time and this marked the mk dark ages until a return to form with mk9

    I fully admit it, I was in love with Mortal Kombat 4 back when it was new. Just being a Mortal Kombat game was enough to make me love a game back then. Now as an adult however I can see all the issues with it, and why it's one of the weaker titles.

      I felt the same, OP. When MK4 came out I loved it on the basis that it was a MK game.
      Nowadays I can see how much of a shitty entry it was.
      Never played DA or the other one.
      As for the new characters, Quan Chi was the only cool one. Reiko was cool, but played like shit.
      The others are total crap.

      Quite possibly the perfect game. The graphics, gore, characters, storylines, everything works and so much fun with friends and family. It’s the one game I’ll pull out on a Christmas and everyone young and old gets excited.

        Though it's not the purpose of a fighting game MK was oddly strong in these departments, so much that MK remains the only truly good video game movie.

        Of course they flubbed it in the sequel and reboot, but I digress

    With the exception of Jarek, who is useless and adds nothing and they should've just used Kano, I like the MK4 newcomers.

    I always thought Kai was interesting, they kind of tried to set him up to become the new Liu Kang lorewise but they did it in such a half-assed way nobody gave a shit. Then in the next game they actually killed off Liu Kang but Kai was nowhere to be found. If they had ever bothered to flesh him out and maybe make him not seem like such a joke he could've been a good character.

      Replacing Liu Kang never works out. Kai, Shujinko, Cassie, eventually we always end up going back to Kang.

        Its a shame that the higherups at Midway couldnt keep them in check.
