Mortal Kombat 1 is set to arrive later in 2023, and the reboot is bringing another diverse roster of fighters with brutal abilities. Here’s a look at all of the Mortal Kombat 1 characters confirmed so far, as well as the Kameo characters and leaked fighters.

NetherRealm have released teasers and confirmed a set of characters that will be returning for Mortal Kombat 1. The iconic fighting game series is getting a reboot for the current generation of consoles and MK1 is dropping on September 19.

Fans have already begun pre-ordering their copy and the beta is set to arrive in the coming weeks, allowing them to hone their skills before the full release.

Much like Street Fighter 6 or MultiVersus, a fighting game is only as strong as its cast of characters. So far, a few names on the launch roster have been announced, while leaks have revealed some of the DLC fighters from popular franchises that could arrive down the line.

Here’s a breakdown of every Mortal Kombat 1 fighter confirmed so far, along with all of the characters that have leaked.

Every confirmed Mortal Kombat 1 fighter

So far, 13 Mortal Kombat 1 characters have been confirmed to appear in the reboot, each with their own unique moveset and Fatalities. These are all familiar faces that have become staples of the series, appearing in most, if not every entry to date.

Here’s every Mortal Kombat 1 fighter announced so far:

  • Jax
  • Johnny Cage
  • Kenshi
  • Kitana
  • Kung Lao
  • Liu Kang
  • Mileena
  • Raiden
  • Scorpion
  • Shang Tsung (Pre-order exclusive)
  • Sub-Zero
  • Smoke
  • Rain

Mortal Kombat 11 launched with a huge roster of 25 fighters, so fans can expect more fighters to be announced as we edge closer to Mortal Kombat 1’s release date. Each new installment also introduces some new faces, so only time will tell who will join the roster this time around.

Mortal Kombat 1 is the second time the series has received a soft reboot.

Here is the full list of confirmed Kameo fighters so far:

  • Goro
  • Jax Briggs
  • Kano
  • Kung Lao
  • Scorpion
  • Sonya Blade
  • Stryker

Mortal Kombat YouTuber Dynasty has also claimed to leak even more fighters that are expected to join Scorpion and Sub-Zero in the game at launch.
