New characters in the Mortal Kombat X game may surprise some because they are not part of the fighting game franchise and are tied to other kinds of gory stories of pop culture.

1. Alien
The alien character from the famous Sci-fi horror genre movie series that later became a video game on the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo consoles as well as comic books and famous fights with another alien species, Predator, Alien comes into the fighting game scene with incredible moves and fighting capabilities.

2. Leatherface
That's right, Leatherface. He is the gruesome serial killer character from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies. Yes, he also wields a chainsaw in the MKX game as well!

3. Jason Voorhees
If you don't know who Jason is then you might be too young to remember the Friday the 13th horror movies saga. It is the character with the hockey mask and the machete.. or weedwacker... or hunting knife... anyway, he's good at killing and terrible at dying. And he's been to space and fought with Freddy Kruger.

4. Triborg
Not sure what the hell this one is about. Just some robot that seems almost like a knock off of Sektor or a masculine C3PO (kidding).

5. Predator
They had to include Predator if they included Alien. The most infamous of space alien killer hunter rivalries. Period.
