Mortal Kombat 11 tier list: Our best character choices, including Sheeva, Fujin and Robocop, ranked


Mortal Kombat 11 has seen several significant updates since its release in April 2019, and since then its intricacies have been uncovered and each character has been picked apart and generally figured out by the game’s dedicated community.

The latest is the Aftermath DLC, which introduce three new characters – Sheeva, Fujin and Robocop. But how good are these new ferocious fighters? Are they good enough to overthrow the game’s top tiers, such as Sonya and Geras?

Therefore, we’ve updated our Mortal Kombat 11 Tier List so that you new and experienced players alike can discern which are the best characters worth learning.

Mortal Kombat 11 Tier List: Our recommendations for the best Mortal Kombat 11 characters

We’ve ranked every Mortal Kombat 11 fighter – including every DLC addition – into a single tier list. We looked at a range of factors such as a character’s special moves, the range and speed of their normal moves, how easy their high damage combos were to perform, and so on.

There are two things to bear in mind. One, that this list is subjective, and is based on our own opinion of how good a character is. Two, it’s worth noting is all characters are viable. If you like playing Kung Lao, then play Kung Lao! Just because a character is average in our eyes does not make them unplayable.
