Ed Boon, the co-creator of Mortal Kombat, recently asked fans in a twitter poll which female fighters they missed most in MKXL. Jade came out tops with 37% of the vote.
This got us thinking, not only about the ones we missed most but the deadliest, most brutal female combatants to ever enter the arena as a whole.
Here are MK’s 3 most vicious female fighters of all time.
Sheeva made her debut in MK3, and is a four-armed half human, half dragon being that possesses incredible strength. She has the ability to summon fireballs and stomp the ground with incredible force, causing damage to opponents.

Introduced as a secret character in MKII, Jade’s combat characteristics include her sharp-pointed staff which can transform into ‘razorangs’ (a combination of razors and boomerangs), and a ‘force rejection field’, which causes projectiles fly harmlessly past her.

A clone of Kitana, Mileena is a deadly combination of beauty and beast, with incredible agility and speed. Popular for her ferocious hand-to-hand combat style, Mileena is a bloodthirsty killer with some of the best finishing moves, which include the ability to rip her opponents in half with her Kartakan teeth.
