Fans of the series often perceive Scorpion as the title’s foremost anti-hero, due to his tendency to undertake actions which serve to benefit good, albeit in his own gruesome, self-serving and vigilante manner. Scorpion’s demeanor, characteristics, persona and self-reliance have all contributed to his popularity, with Scorpion ironically appearing as the most human in nature and choice when compared to the purely virtuous, “good guys” and the diabolically evil, “bad guys”.
Although Scorpion is featured alongside the forces of evil in the opening scene of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, he remains neutral, due to his fierce hatred of Quan Chi. When masked, Scorpion appears human, although this is merely an illusion. When revealing his true self, only Scorpion’s skull remains, which sometimes appears on fire. Scorpion’s most popular and recognized skill is his famous spear attack, which is used to draw an opponent toward him. This attack will also stun the opponent for a short amount of time.
Scorpion will shout, “Get over here!” or “Come here!”, while executing this technique. Scorpion is one of the most popular characters in the Mortal Kombat series and the Definition of BadAss!!!!!
