Why I defend Mortal Kombat X

Sexualized women…

…and unsexualized women

Sexualized men….

…and unsexualized men

Humans…

…and crazy awesome monsters

Men and women having close relationships without it being romantic

A gay male character without having his entire identity be based on him being gay but not glossing it over completely

An evil same-sex couple

An interracial couple where neither of them are white

Who are also part of a team where every member is a different ethnicity

(sorry I know I used that picture twice but it’s my best picture of the four of them)

A female monster who actually looks scary

An actual surprising betrayal plot twist

A female character with small boobs and absolutely no sexualization placed on her

A bad guy who isn’t hurting on the inside but at the same time isn’t evil for the hell of it, and rather is driven by greed, making him an evil yet human villain (though he isn’t the main antagonist)

and later he gets his ass kicked which is hella fun to watch

A main female character who not only has no love interest, but could very possibly be aromantic/asexual

And the writers had a huge opportunity to give her a love interest (because the power she inherited from her father is activated when she sees a loved one about to die)

But they DIDN’T

And the loved one she saved was HER FATHER

And the most important love in her life was revealed to be HER FAMILY

Basically I know Mortal Kombat has a bad history of being sexist and ridiculously over-sexualizing women, but it really has improved as a franchise and really does have a lot of representation. It’s also a good fighting game with great gameplay and a decent storyline.

“The wife of Takeda Katsuyori”(1897), Adachi Ginko (active c.1870-1908)

Print from the series : “Mirror of renowned women from ancient and modern times”

The wife of Sengoku period daimyo Takeda Katsuyori (1546-1582) is depicted carrying a naginata during an attack. Her husband was defeated by Oda Nobunaga and had to flee, his wife going with him. However, Katsuyori was resigned to die and prompted her to leave. She refused and committed suicide with her husband.
