Mortal Kombat Mobile tier list of all available fighters
"A wise fighter will look into the MK Mobile tier list before initiating a fight" - Not Raiden, PocketGamer
It wouldn't be fair if we were to say that all the characters were created equal, and so we've devised a Mortal Kombat Mobile tier list to help you pick the best fighters in their rarity class. Today, we're going to dive right into it, so you will know exactly which fighters are the strongest in the game and how you can make use of their skillset in the best way possible.
How to determine the tier for each character?To put it simply, each character is ranked according to their strength when fully geared up and 'at their best'. We are not talking about level 1 characters without any gear, because that would be unfair towards some of the characters who only start to shine later on in the game.
Furthermore, since each hero has a rarity (Diamond, Gold, Silver, Bronze) we are going to keep it split for each tier. So, below you'll find a complete tier list for the best Diamond heroes alongside a Gold, Silver and Bronze characters tier list.
If you love sorting characters, take a look at our other ranked lists and let us know what you think about them. We have quite a lot, but you could look into the Brawlhalla tier list, FEH tier list, Another Eden tier list and tell us what you think about it in the comments below.
What's the best overall character in Mortal Kombat Mobile?If we were to take every element that makes up a character 'good', then it'd be a tight dispute between Reptile (a personal favourite to be fair), Kitana (another favourite) and Jade from the Day of the Dead Pack. Of course, each character that is Diamond can be good in specific team compositions and/or setups, and so it would be unfair to say that these three heroes are the all-time best and the rest are weak.
But enough with the introductions - let's dive into the Mortal Kombat Mobile tier list so you can see which characters you should add to your team!Original article by Cristina Mesesan, updated by Pocket Gamer Staff.
Diamond fighters tier list
These are all the Diamond cards currently released in Mortal Kombat Mobile. Some of them depend on the team composition to be good, but generally speaking, each individual MK11 card is extremely good in and of itself. As for the rest, it depends either on the team that you assign them to or their equipment.
You want to focus mainly on the S-tier and A-tier characters, so I wouldn't suggest bothering with the B tier and below.
|S||The Joker, Fujin (MK11), Sindel (MK11), Cassie Cage (Strike Force), Erron (Day of the Dead), Freddy Krueger (Nightmare), Goro (Klassic), Jade (Day of the Dead), Jade (MK11), Johnny Cage (Strike Force), Kabal (MK11), Kitana (Circle of Shadow), Kitana (Day of the Dead), Kung Lao (Circle of Shadow), Liu Kang (Circle of Shadow), Mileena (Ravenous), Nightwolf (MK11), Noob Saibot (MK11), Quan Chi (Circle of Shadow), Raiden (Klassic), Raiden (MK11), Raiden (Klassic Movie), Rain (MK11), Reptile (Klassic), Scorpion (Hellspawn), Scorpion (MK11), Scorpion (Strike Force), Skarlet (MK11), Sonya Blade (Kold War), Sub-Zero (Circle of Shadow), Sub-Zero (MK11)|

|C||D'Vorah (Wretch), Jax Briggs (Klassic), Kitana (Assassin), Takeda (Ronin),|
Gold fighters tier list
Some of the Gold characters below are arguably better than their Diamond versions. For instance, the characters that rank low in the tier list for Diamond (B and C tier) and rank high as their Gold version should definitely be used instead. Also, it's worth noting that some of the characters mentioned in the A and S tier as Gold can be exceptional in very specific instances.
|S||Cassie Cage (Covert Ops), Ermac (Klassic), Erron Black (Gunslinger), Jacqui Briggs (Kosplay), Jason Voorhees (Slasher), Johnny Cage (Kombat Cup), Kano (Klassic), Kenshi (Elder God), Kung Lao (Shaolin Fist), Liu Kang (Flaming Fists), Mileena (Klassic), Noob Saibot (Klassic), Quan Chi (Warlock), Raiden (Dark), Scorpion (Hanzo Hasashi), Scorpion (Inferno), Scorpion (Klassic), Shinnok (Bone Shaper), Smoke (Klassic), Sonya Blade (Klassic), Sonya Blade (Kombat Cup), Sub-Zero (Klassic), Takeda (Shirai Ryu), Tanya (Kobu Jutsu), Tanya (Treacherous), Tremor (Aftershock), Triborg Smoke, Triborg Sub-Zero|
|A||Noob Saibot (Lizard), Lizard Baraka, Pyromancer Tanya, Bo' Rai Cho (Dragon Breath), Ermac (Master of Souls), Ermac (Pharaoh), Jason Voorhees (Unstoppable), Kitana (Mournful), Shang Tsung (Klassic), Kotal Kahn (Dark Lord), Mileena (Vampiress), Shinnok (Vengeful), Sonya Blade (Demolition), Sub-Zero (Grandmaster), Triborg Cyrax, Triborg Sektor|
|B||Baraka (Scourge), Cassie Cage (Undercover), D'Vorah (Venomous), Ermac (Spectral), Jacqui Briggs (Cybernetic), Jacqui Briggs (Hi-Tech), Jade (Klassic), Jax Briggs (Heavy Weapons), Johnny Cage (A-List), Johnny Cage (Stunt Double), Kenshi (Possessed), Kintaro (Shokan Warrior), Kotal Kahn (Sun God), Kung Jin (Marksman), Kung Jin (Shaolin), Kung Lao (Shaolin Master), Mileena (Piercing), Raiden (Thunder God), Reptile (Noxious), Scorpion (Injustice), Sub-Zero (Cryomaster)|
|C||Cassie Cage (Kombat Cup), D'Vorah (Swarm Queen), Goro (Tigrar Fury), Kano (Commando), Kenshi (Balanced), Kintaro (Shokan Warrior), Kotal Kahn (Blood God), Kung Lao (Hat Trick), Reptile (Kraken), Reptile (Nimble), Scorpion (Ninjutsu), Sonya Blade (Tactical)|
Silver fighters tier list
I wouldn't recommend using the Silver Characters more than necessary. Of course, some of them can be decent in specific situations, but they shouldn't be a priority. Below you'll find all the Silver cards in the game ranked into a provisory tier list.
|A||Cassie Cage (Standard), Johnny Cage (Standard), Kitana (Klassic), Reptile (Standard), Scorpion (Standard), Sub-Zero (Standard)|
|B||Ermac (Standard), Jacqui Briggs (Standard), Jax Briggs (Standard), Kano (Standard), Kotal Kahn (Standard), Kung Jin (Standard), Sonya Blade (Standard)|
|C||D'Vorah (Standard), Jax Briggs (Farmer), Kenshi (Standard)|
