Hi there, hope you’re well, my name is…
I would like to elaborate some of the coolest facts about one of the iconic character, Reptile, from the game Mortal Kombat. Here is my research from YouTube, Wikipedia, and many other resources.
I’m introducing you from the beginning, here we go.
Reptile appearance: Reptile is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created by Midway Games by Ed Boon and John Tobias. Reptile debuted in Mortal Kombat as a hidden character, it was first fighting to introduce a hidden opponent, a player only fights Reptile if they see a UFO/Witch/flock of birds flying over the cloud, and also in order to fight, you have to win two flawless victories to face Reptile. It was 10M points, which is making it worth it to face Reptile, at least we can show off the score.
Reptile movie appearance: Reptile appeared in the movie Mortal Kombat (1995), portrayed by Kitch Cooke as a bipedal lizard, he was found by Liu Kang after being thrown into a statue. Reptile transformed into a human-looking ninja and he battled Liu kang, he was defeated by Liu King and then crushed after reverting to his original form.
Series appearance: The television series Mortal Kombat conquest featured Reptile in his human form portrayed by John Valera, commander of Shao Kahn’s Raptors, he betrayed Kahn and formed an alliance with Kreeya to share dominion over Kahn’s domain and serve as one of Haimatis. Only to be killed later during ambush by Shoa Kahn’s priest’s.
Song released: Skrillex released the single referring to the Mortal Kombat Character Reptile from the game. The album titled “Mortal Kombat” song inspired by the warriors.
Animated series: Reptile appears in the 2020 animated movie mortal Kombat legends: Scorpion’s revenge when he ambushes Sonya. Sonya defeats him and beheaded him with a chain.
Action figures: A Reptile figure was released by Hasbro. The figure comes with Katana and grappling hook.
Origin of Reptile: Reptile is the green ninja in late game. Let’s get under the skin of Reptile Mortal Kombat’s. Reptile
was actually a secret character in the first Mortal Kombat game, the third ninja amongst the original warrior Scorpion and Subzero. Reptile is the mixture of Scorpion and Subzero, they give their move to Reptile. Reptile is the spewing acid cold-blooded killer. Reptile is a race known as the Saurians, an evolution of dinosaurs and also native to earth realm along with many of other heroes. The Saurians resemble Raptors and also possesses unique abilities such as turning invisible and can spit highly powerful acid that can even damage other sarias. While the Saurians once thrived on earth realm, they forced to flee zatata claimed by the outer world Zatara. Driving the Saurians to nearly extinction with a few survivors left Reptile, one of the survivors, significantly informs his action in Mortal kombat series.
Some cool facts about Reptile: Reptile is one of coolest characters in the Mortal Kombat game, he possesses the coolest Fatality in MK games. Some of the coolest facts about Reptile are here.
You can fight Reptile Vs Reptile: If you play the challenge tower challenge number 227, you’ll be going up against a version of Reptile that got turned into cyborg like styrax sector and sub zero. It’s basically a palette swap of cyber sub zero, but its still really cool to see this happen.
Mortal Kombat shaolin monks:
If you find Reptile on the Pit. Liu king will refer to him as another servant of Shang Tsung. But, Reptile’s reply is “I don’t serve Shang Tsung.”
This is possibly a mistake as Reptile’s bile and welcome back to states that he is Shang Tsung’s personal protector and he serves them. Now, the only way this won’t be a mistake is if Reptile already discovered that Shang was plotting to force the remaining members of his nearly extinct race into slavery under Shao Kahn rule, then it makes sense.
Reptile in comics: In comics Reptile was banished to the nether realm for community genocide on the other species, but in Mortal Kombat comics book, it showed that Sindel claimed her role as a denyin queen and she banished Reptile to the call that mind of Shoa Kahn for his crime against Denial.
Reptile’s real name revealed: In Mortal Kombat X, there is a secret dialogue between Reptile and Raidn where we can actually hear Reptile’s real name and that was first time Reptile spoke. The dialogue is Raidn: “Step aside Syzoth.” Reptile: “You know my true name?” Raidn: “And path to defeat.”
Reptile’s blood changes occasionally: Reptile’s blood has been changed to red and green multiple time throughout the series.
It comes out one and two bleeds res, then in MK3 he bleeds green but turns in MK4 and is back to being red. In indent alliance, it’s green again.
Reptile loyalty: Reptile swore his loyalty to Shoa Kahn because he promised him that if he helped him out with the task he would revive his reptilian race. But, it was Shoa Kahn who put his race near extinction. Reptile was loyal to his master, Shoa Kahn, and helped him again and again. Reptile ended up hearing a conversation between Shang Tsung and Quan Chi where they were applying to assassinate Shoa Kahn, Reptile rushed to the emperor. Before he could warn him, the vampire, known as Vitara, distracted him by revealing to him knowledge about his reptilian traits. He also told him about the Saurians race. He didn’t reach Shao kahn in time because Vitara succeeded in distracting him long enough, but when he discovered that was only distracting him from telling the emperor about the treasury he went back to find her, but didn’t. Instead, he ended up finding an incubated egg of the Dragon King Dummy embryos pulses and fires a beam into a hawkish lizard beast and his soul is replaced with another. That’s insane.
Reptile in Mortal Kombat: Reptile makes a cameo in Mortal Kombat 11 where he runs away from the player in the Krypt. We have to find him by gathering a few fragments of soul to fight Reptile. I think this character needs much more than cameo.
Reptile wins (fatality).
