Serving as a soft reboot, Mortal Kombat 1 offers an impressive roster of characters that appeal to both seasoned and novice players. Here’s a complete list of characters in MK1, including launch, Kameo, and DLC choices.

Mortal Kombat 1 is the latest edition of the legendary franchise developed by NetherRealm Studios. This time, the whole cast of fighters has to survive through a trial modeled by Liu Kang, the now Fire-God that rebooted the classic timeline.
