The latest fighter to join the fray in the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot is the shadowy ninja known as Noob Saibot. Not only does he have the dumbest name ever (Mortal Kombat creators’ surnames spelt backwards – Ed Boon and John Tobias) but he also has a pretty confusing backstory. He is, supposedly, one of the two Sub-Zero brothers. In Mortal Kombat I, Scorpion kills Sub-Zero, who is the older of the two. Then, the Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat II is the younger of the two Sub-Zero brothers because, well, the older one is dead. Older, dead Sub comes back as Noob Saibot, or something.
Anyway, here’s a Noob Saibot vignette trailer. It’s not like the character trailers we’ve been posting over the last few weeks, so don’t expect story filler – although we could really use some. Instead, you can feast your eyes on some of the scummy shadow moves that Noob has at his disposal. The guy really doesn’t fight fair, and he kicks girls hard enough in the stomach to make them barf all over his foot. No really, he makes Jade spew all over his leg – eeew. At least he can rest assured that if he fails as a ninja, he’s got a second career option as a backyard abortionist.
Best. Victory pose. Ever.
