Yep, the latest series stalwart to join the Mortal Kombat X roster is our old buddy Reptile. Spoiler: he's still a bastard.

A hidden boss in the original game, he had humble origins as another half-assed palette swap and ‘cooler version of Scorpion.' Having appeared in almost every entry since, he has earned his place as one of Mortal Kombat's most beloved villains.

Reptile is the least imaginatively named member of a species called Raptors, nigh extinct creepy-ass reptilian people. In the games, he does arch-asshole Shao Khan's bidding, in the hope that he will restore Reptile's people to their former glory. Which, y'know, he won't. Still, Khan's henchman gets to tear all kinds of foes a new rectum on the battlefield in the meantime.

This angry green bugger is well-known for his fighting style, which incorporates all kinds of fancy tricks. From tongue lassos to acid snot missiles, he has it all. And a dash extra, as this first slice of Reptile gameplay demonstrates. That's a charmingly vicious Fatality, right there.

Elsewhere in the clip, craptacularly cheesy jokes abound in the character intros.
