So Cetrion must be the god of life if she is the opposite to Shinnok cause he is the god of death right?

I like the look of her, not really my style of character but she does look pretty cool and I wonder how she will fit in story wise because being an elder god should make her power levels non-comparable to the regular fighters

I don't hate her, but I don't love her. She's not the worst looking character in the game, nor is her Fatality the worst. At least it's unique - Raiden's are boring as he generically blows limbs off. I do prefer Cetrion's Fatal Blow over her Fatality though. But I could say that about a few other characters.

I'll reserve judgement until I've seen more of her in this weeks Kombat Kast, along with Noob and Frost. Which are two characters I'm much more interested in.

This thread is a salt mine.

sHe iS An InJuStIcE cHaRaCtEr, nOt FiT mOrTaL kOmBaT.

pLaNt LaDy bAd.

The only thing I don't like about her is the fatality shown. Everything else I love.

I think it's dope that she controls all the elements instead of just one. It keeps her from being a literal one-trick pony. It opens the door for all kinds of ideas for moves in future installments, should she return. Also, it's dope to have another Elder God as a playable character. I've always hated how they just sat back and let shit happen, even though they have the power to solve things. Cetrion is a prime example of an Elder God solving shit. I love her already!

It feels like such an evolution of the franchise. This is the type of new character I LOVE. Cetrion is a game changer of a character and not just another Kombat Kid. Which is Oh so refreshing.

Why are you at an MK forum in the first place? If you rather want MK to turn in Injustice go be happy at injustice forums.. You cant be a mortal kombat fan while you rather see injustice archatypes. I dont understand. It' shit fans like you and however shares those thoughts that ruin the MK series. Ugh

Really? I don’t know what is funnier here... the fact that you seem to consider yourself the authority on what an MK fan is (or should be) about... or that you actually thought your little pissy reply could get rid of a member that’s been here as long as he has. Grow up please. Yes there are some elements of the injustice series that have been brought to MK. There’s no denying that. However I think the similarities that were brought over actually improve MK (IMO of course). For example, I happen to like the slow-mo freeze at the end of fatalities and win poses. I like it in IJ2 and I like it here. Others don’t and that’s fine. That doesn’t make me (or anyone else who thinks it is cool) any less of an MK fan than you. Just comes down to different tastes...which, again, is fine. To each their own, right?

And no Ahnka, you’re not alone. After seeing this trailer I am very much looking forward to Cetrion. The only elder god we’ve ever gotten to see in action was Shinnok. It’s awesome to see another after so long and one that is apparently on the side of good (which is a refreshing change). She seems on an epic level to me. This is how I imagine a full-on Elder God would fight....as ridiculously powerful. Also I’m really liking her design. Kind of puts to rest my fear that every female was going to get a version of that battle dress and not have any unique designs to themselves. So that’s a good thing.

Her brother's the devil, her mother wants to Thanos snap all of reality, and no father in sight. Even for a goddess, Cetrion has it rough, lol

Indeed. The question I want most to be answered from that trailer though is... When the hell did Jade and Kotal have time to fall in love? Hasn’t she been dead for 25yrs? And on that subject: Where has she been all this time? She certainly wasn’t with the other dead heroes. Questions, questions and MORE questions.

Kotal was one of Shao's Generals once upon a time - so it's no stretch to assume they've at least met before. However, I get the impression it's more of an arrangement / truce sort of deal - which I think will be called off as Baraka (I think) asks her about betraying Kotal in an intro.

As for her disappearing as a revenant... she's back as a revenant in MK11, so they'll likely address it at some point.

A darker, gothy vibe. I can work with this over her reveal outfit, which is too Poison Ivy for my tastes.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm pumped to see that the first guest character for MK11 is gonna be Avatar from the upcoming Avatar the Legend of Cetrion series! And they were even nice enough to include her in the base roster. Thanks, NRS!

I watched the trailer a few times and contemplated everything...but I still don’t really like this character very much. I think my issue with her is primarily that I just don’t like the way this character looks (odd visual design, gross color palette)...which in itself isn’t a big issue considering there will be different skins but whatever.

However, as a reasonable and open minded person I will not make any further judgements on her until I can actually play as her. I still get the feeling she will be a character that I just flat out won’t use though. That’s alright, there’s enough goodness in MK11 that I’m ok with not falling head over heels for a single new character.

Dedicated, hopeless...Li Mei fan.

Well I am also not completely convinced about her. I don't like the recycling of special moves. Her ground pound looks like Jacqui's. Some moves remind me of Tremor. I think they could make better special moves for her. The funny thing is that I love sorcery in games. Doesn't matter if Final Fantasy with magic spells or MK with the power of an element (Raiden). I just love that. So it doesn't bother me that her fatality seems to be over the top (but not an overkill) and her skillset is full with a magic touch.

But I also don't think I gonna play her a lot because of her gameplay. I like more brawler, grabbler or guys with great combo potencial. At least I like her alt. Looks way better than her original custome.

Also, multiple timelines. For all we know that is a Jade who never died and has had a relationship with Kotal from an earlier point on.

Thank you TomTaz :P

Cetrion is the type of new character that I've seen fans create numerous times throughout the years on various forums and social spaces- back when doing a character such as this would be damn near impossible due to the graphical and technical limitations of the time- but now she exists- right here before our eyes in all her glory- I think that's why I really took to Cetrion- she seems like such a physical representation of how far this franchise has come and how far we have come along with it.

Yeah...maybe I'm getting too deep lol. But she really is a sign that almost NOTHING is impossible now in these games.

For me Mortal Kombat always has this mysterious touch. Every stage and fighter ( ok, some not ) has this. This is the reason why i always prefered MK and not Street Fighter or something else.

I think she fits in this Universe. But I must admit that the conclusion water moves = no Rain doesn't make any sense for me. She even has anice move. So no Sub Zero or Frost? Johnny Cage has stuntdouble moves... No Noob Saibot in this game? If Ermac is in a MK game, then no Kenshi? The only thing I think that Tremor is out because she have almost only earth moves. Every other fighter like Rain or Fujin could be possible. Even if I think only Fujin makes the cut as DLC.. but who knows? :)

About Cetrion.... I think she is a zooner like Jade or Skarlet. Hm... not my gamestyle but I give her a try. I like her use of the Elements, her Fatal Blow and her Fatality. Even if I think it would easier to groth right at the start of the match and smash the sh** out of the opponent. But ok, she shows her true power in her fatality. I really like that :D

My first thought was its about time MK had a powerful character. Very anime and Poison Ivy. I've noticed each game seems to have its own theme going:

Mk 2011: Playboy sex appeal / femdom

MKX: Horror / Gay politics

MK11: MeToo politics, vibrant superhero "Suicide Squad" feel

So she is Shinnok's sister and both are Kronika's children...ok I wonder if we will find out more about the other Elder God's..

For that matter, I wonder why she is helping when the Elder Gods tend not to mettle with the affairs of the realms. Plus in MK9 they were more of a singular collective when Raiden and Liu Kang spoke to them.

The Elder Gods have basically done nothing but sit on their pedestals while the realms go to shit, it's about time one of them actually did something productive for a change.

Plus the bad guy trying to wipe out all reality is her own mother, so she also at least has a personal reason to get involved.

Well, she does say to Raiden that every being will be erased in a temporal armageddon. Maybe that includes the Elder Gods themselves. She could be sympathetic to humans as well.

In Shinnok's MKX ending it shown that the Elder Gods are parts of the One Being, which devoured the Elder Gods causing reality to end.

I always assumed Elder Gods were above trivial stations unlike the lesser gods who I assume they created to guard and police the realms. Sort of like them just being all powerful beings of all?

So does this mean Shinnoks' primary element or whatever was death and that wasn't something he had become while festering in the Netherrealm?

So even if he had been allowed to take Earthrealm it would have just ended up looking like The Netherrealm? I guess that explains why he was going on and on about the truth of death in the last game. I was hoping he was just talking crazy because the dude was trapped in hell for eons.

I also thought the only reason for his court jester form was because he abandoned his Elder status and assumed a lesser form but kept his elder power intact due to his amulet? But the Elder gods can actually just do that? Step down without sacrificing their power and crush us whenever they like?

Why not just remain in her dragon from and-

EDIT:I'm just riffing here.

@xysion

Wait wuh? They changed that too? So the elder gods are no longer entities separate from the one being but are also fragments of it themselves?

She has a haunted forest vibe in that alt. Nature is both loving and cruel, life and death. I can work with this look, especially with the color/shader system.
