SonicFox Reveals Their First Mortal Kombat 1 Tier List
SonicFox released their Mortal Kombat 1 tier list on Twitter, placing Sindel and eight other fighters among the strongest in the game. Kenshi appears in first place in tier S+, followed by Sindel, their new Mortal Kombat 1 main. The list continues with Johnny Cage, Raiden, Ashrah, Geras, Liu Kang, Reiko, and Shang Tsung. According to the long-time pro, these are the best Mortal Kombat 1 characters because they have the most broken movesets. Tier S goes with Kitana, Tanya, General Shao, Reptile, Smoke, Rain, Kung Lao, and Li Mei. Another fighter included in tier S by SonicFox is Omni-Man, a new addition to Mortal Kombat 1‘s roster. They explain that some reasons for Omni-Man’s ranking are his good pressure and extremely strong meterless combos.
SonicFox’s Mortal Kombat 1 tier list ends with the A+ fighters, these being Nitara, Mileena, Baraka, Havik, Sub-Zero, and Scorpion. The list sparked a debate among fans, with most comments agreeing with SonicFox’s choices. One player noted that they see Sindel, Liu Kang, and Geras as top tier thanks to the Kameo Fighters, Mortal Kombat 1‘s new system that allows players to choose a kombatant to lend a hand in battle. Another commentary considers Omni-Man’s ranking higher than the veteran’s. SonicFox has posted a video on YouTube showing the composition of the Mortal Kombat 1 tier list with explanations for each choice and placement.
SonicFox is known for their exceptional versatility in adapting to different fighting games, with Mortal Kombat as one of the titles they are most remembered for. With years of experience and Mortal Kombat titles under their belt, it’s no wonder that SonicFox’s Mortal Kombat 1 tier list is creating a special stir in the community.
