Reptile pops skulls and melts faces in Mortal Kombat X

Game of Bones?

Pukey fighting game veteran Reptile is a playable character in Mortal Kombat X.

In the video, below, we see everyone's favourite two-legged humanoid raptor smash old man Kung Lao to bits. Warning: it's not for the faint of heart.

Reptile's x-ray move involves breaking his opponent's jaw, squeezing in their eyeballs then crushing their skull. The gameplay is as over-the-top gory as you'd expect from a Mortal Kombat game.

Reptile's Fatality is, perhaps mercifully, cut off before the last hurrah, but we do see his (its?) famous barf melt Kung Lao's face. So there is that.

Here's a list of Mortal Kombat X characters confirmed by developer NetherRealm so far:

  • Goro
  • Kano
  • Kitana
  • Kung Lao
  • Quan Chi
  • Raiden
  • Reptile
  • Scorpion
