Mortal Kombat X - Reptile Variations, Fatalities and Brutalities

Posted in mortal kombat

Reptile is the green ninja creature that's been part of the Mortal Kombat series since the very beginning, albeit he started as a secret unlockable character in the first game. In MKX, Reptile is one of the core characters with three variations that include Deceptive, Noxious and Nimble. His core moves haven't changed drastically through the series but he's still one of the fans favourite choices.

Reptile is a lizard creature by nature, frequently ripping off his mask to reveal his hidden reptilian face. His acid spit is notoriously famous, causing deadly injuries to those who stand in his way. In addition to this, Reptile has the common ninja moves such as slide, dash and pounce attacks. But the best of the bunch is his forceball, which slowly transcending the screen, setting up the most perfect framed attacks that give the enemy little or no room to escape.

Of the variations, Nimble appears to be the most practical so far. It's special move allows the player to increase their speed whilst slowing down time for the opposing player. The screen turns a reptilian green, signifying that the Nimble perk is active. The classic stealth move has been classified into the Deceptive variation whilst the noxious variant gives the player a permanent AoE attack that inflicts light damage to an opposing player who's in close proximity.

In this post you'll find the complete Moves List for Reptile including his Fatalities (and any secret fatalities). I'll also update this post to include his secret costumes and unlockable items.
