Out of all the Mortal Kombat games made, what game do you think has the best roster? I think that Mortal Kombat 2 has all of the charaters I like.

I completely agree with Teraku. My favorite MK roster is the roster from Mortal Kombat 2. That game had the best three ninjas (Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Reptile), the two female ninjas, Kung Lao, Kang, Tsung, Raiden etc etc etc This game was also the first MK game that Shao Kahn (the best boss of MK) was in. Now that is a great cast of characters, if I say so myself

I didn't like MK2 that much because of Kintaro, he was kind of hard to beat.

My fav characters are: Johnny Cage, Sub Zero, Kitana and Jade. These chars were present all together only in MKII. So MKII has my fav roster.

MK2 for sure! like YOTT said, it had the three best ninja's Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Reptile, they had returning characters like Liu Kang, Raiden, Cage and Shang Tsung - who was playable! they had cool new characters like Kung Lao, Baraka, Kitana and Jax. then there is Kintaro who is like Goro on steroids, Shao Kahn who is probably the most evil badass end boss in any game, and a bunch of mad cap hidden fighters (Smoke, Noob Saibot, Jade) to top it all off. i can honestly say that the roster for this game was perfect imo, everything just seems to fit. it puts MK3 to shame

Yea, i think MK Trilogy has the best roster, but if your talking about the regular games it has to be Mortal Kombat 2.

In my honest opinion, I think MK: Trilogy did indeed have the best roster since it had every single character in the series pre mk4. but, other than that, it is a tie between mortal kombat 2 and mortal kombat deception.

Definetly MK2 had the best roster. It was such an improvement from MK 1 it was just amazing. Shao Kahn and Kintaro were the best line up of all. I mean Kinataro WAS hard, but we need a little challenge right? MK2 was the best (even though I LOVE the roster in Deception - characters like Kobra and Darrius just put a bad taste in my mouth) and with MK2 you didn't have nonsense characters like that (well depending if you think Cage is a nonsense character that is)

When I say I like charaters or roster lists, it don't have to be a personal thing to me. To tell you the truth, I thing that I am the only person that loves every Mortal Kombat charater!

You must really love water! Anyway, I just wanted to say that I don't care about a certain charater, but if I'm good with a type of fighting style, I will play as him or her. To me, it dosen't matter about how the person is but that doesn't mean that I won't play as or dislike a charater. You see what I mean?

For sheer numbers of characters, you can't really go past Trilogy. It allowed matchups that (at the time) people had been aching for - Johnny Cage vs Kabal as an example. I used the think Capcom were crazy for craming ever possible character into their select screens however I can see that it has it's merits.

However for the most well rounded roster, I'd have to agree with YOTT and others by saying MK2 has it. Not only did it have the previous games boss as a playable character, it expanded on all the previous seven fighters and for the most part succeded. Also, the list of 'new' characters in MK2 have been the most enduring - names such as Baraka, Kung Lao, Kitana, Mileena have become staples in MK history and you just can't imagine the game without them. Except for Jax. Jax is dull and boring. I don't like Jax. But I won't use this as a platform for expressing my hatred of one character whose eye I would love to poke out with a stick!

(I hope I didn't say that out loud just now....)

I like the Deception roster personally, because mostly every fighter has a reason for being there, mostly being the key word (Dairou? I mean.. why?). And Jade, Tanya and Mileena are in it, and that pleases a lot of people. xD
