Mortal Kombat — Rain Character Vignette
Rain was first introduced to the Mortal Kombat series as one of the long line of reskinned ninja characters, a group that also includes Reptile, Smoke, Ermac, and Noob Saibot. His status as the “purple ninja” certainly did him no coolness favors, though the idea of water-based powers was always kind of interesting. It makes him sort of a thawed Sub-Zero, or a quenched Scorpion, if you prefer.
As GameFront writer Phil Owen pointed out in his post on the original trailer for the Rain DLC character, the whole thing is a Prince joke: “Purple Rain.” So clever! Feast your eyes on the trailer below to learn more about this kombatant’s backstory. Once he’s available, we’ll have a guide to his moves on our GameFront YouTube channel, similar to this Kenshi Kombatant guide. We’ve also got guides to all the vanilla-version fighters on this Tips, Combos & Strategies page.
