A former martial arts teacher on the North side of Chicago, the man commonly referred to as Mokap was called upon by Johnny Cage to do some motion capture work for his new movie “Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance”. Mokap was flown to Hollywood to begin his first session, which consisted mainly of the Crane and Snake styles. Although many other martial artists were used, Mokap was brought in repeatedly for his vast knowledge of fighting techniques.
Probably the oddest character in the history of Mortal Kombat right next to Meat, Mokap is a martial arts teacher who is doing stunt work for Johnny Cage’s movies. His bio goes off into an absurd background and gets even more ridiculous in Armageddon in which he defeats Blaze, explodes, and becomes a constellation that Edenians teach children in school. What the fuck indeed. At least he had a unique set of special moves and was quite enjoyable to play as despite not having a fatality.
Not really changing in Armageddon besides his face, Mokap was a back burner character that kept his same move set with slight visual upgrades.
Another DA copy cat in Armageddon. Despite being a sub boss in DA, he was overlooked by the development team and it clearly showed. He was barely touched minus a slight visual upgrade. It was nice to actually play as Moloch which was the only bonus he had in Armageddon. It gave players one new boss to play as.
The vampire Nitara had at long last discovered the location of the Orb that bound her realm to Outworld. Unfortunately, it rested in a location she could never access. However, the ninja cyborg Cyrax of Earthrealm had the ability to retrieve it for her. Through careful manipulation, she convinced Reptile to engage Cyrax in combat and destroy his arm panel in the process. The damage to his transporter left him stranded in Outworld. Her plan was coming together beautifully.
Nitara offered to send Cyrax back to Earthrealm if he could retrieve the Orb from its hiding place. Nitara carried a gemstone around her neck. These gemstones made it possible for her people to traverse the realms. They had done so for ages and had even visited Earthrealm regularly in search of blood. Cyrax had no choice but to accept the offer and journeyed with her to the presumed location of the Orb. As they traveled across Outworld, however, they had the strange feeling that they were being followed.
Probably my favorite new character in DA, Nitara was a brand new type of character as she was a vampire; a race never seen in MK before. He was quick and fast and used her wings to jut around the arena and was a great defensive character. Her visuals were fantastic as she was a vampire pirate hybrid. It’s a crying shame that she hasn’t been seen since DA.
*All Fatality videos are set to the specific characters’ section. Just press play!
Alas, nearly every DA character received little to know treatment in Armageddon and Nitara was one. After seeing her I was really let down by her not having anything done to be improved upon.
I am a demon, a denizen of the Netherrealm. For ages, my sisters and I have blindly served Quan Chi as members of the Brotherhood of Shadows. But I questioned a command given by the sorcerer. To set an example, he sent my own sisters to slay me. During my escape. I discovered a weapon — a sword — that seemed to be of heavenly origin. With each demonic assassin that has fallen to this blade, I have felt a strange exhilaration. It is as if the taint of evil is leaving me.
Now I understand the strange sensation I feel when I exterminate a demon of the Netherrealm with this sword. The sword is purifying me as I cleanse the world of evil. With each fiend I eradicate, my presence here becomes more unstable… soon I will be expelled from this realm. If I were to slay a powerful demon such as Noob Saibot, I would finally become an ascending demon, free from the Netherrealm forever.
One of the only few good new characters in Deception. Ashrah was a fantastic close range character and her back story was very interesting. She is a good demon stuck in the Neatherrealm which is kind of unheard of in MK. Her sorceress based attacks and quick combat style was well liked by fans plus her visual contrast to other characters by being pure white.
She didn’t receive any special treatment in Armageddon (most characters didn’t), but it was nice to play as her one more time before she disappeared into the forgotten spaces of Mortal Kombat.
