Players of Mortal Kombat 1 are expressing their dissatisfaction with Tremor's new design

Tremor, a ninja character in Mortal Kombat, has often been disregarded and it's understandable why. Initially introduced in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces, he struggled to measure up against the iconic figures of Scorpion and Sub-Zero. This lack of recognition even resulted in his absence from Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, the game boasting a comprehensive roster. Therefore, it was quite unexpected to witness Tremor being given another opportunity in Mortal Kombat 1.

However, after a prolonged wait, Tremor's most recent design has left fans feeling disappointed. Making a cameo appearance, Tremor's new look was revealed in the recent Omni-Man gameplay trailer, and the response has been mixed. In general, fans express a sense that his appearance appears somewhat foolish, and they miss his design from Mortal Kombat X.

Reddit user Au_June raises an intriguing question: amidst all the discussions about Omni Man, shouldn't we also discuss the return of Tremor? They inquire about thoughts regarding the design, accompanied by a zoomed-in image offering a glimpse of the new Tremor.

Right off the bat, fans appear to have the sentiment that NetherRealm Studios has taken the rock theme to an excessive extent with Tremor's latest design. While it is true that the rock element is integral to his character, he now appears to be entirely composed of rock. In Mortal Kombat X, Tremor had a combination of rock and human skin, with the rock forming fists that he could employ as weapons against his adversaries.

DMAN3431 expresses their opinion by stating, "His rock-covered skin appears remarkably uncomfortable. It seems excessively pronounced compared to the rocky skin in Mortal Kombat X. Personally, I would prefer Tremor to have human skin and utilize rocky skin as armor."

In the grand scheme of things, the Mortal Kombat X appearance emerges as the preferred choice, even among fans who don't entirely despise the new design. It must be acknowledged, however, that there are supporters of Tremor's new look who appreciate its simplicity and adherence to his earth-based theme.

On the other hand, the tone becomes more positive when fans delve into the discussion of Omni-Man's adaptation in Mortal Kombat 1, particularly due to his incredibly brutal fatalities. Additionally, it is worth noting the exaggerated physique of the characters, continuing the trend of the Mortal Kombat 1 cast having well-defined gluteal muscles that refuse to quit. In all seriousness, it appears they have all been diligently working on their squats, without a doubt. Perhaps Johnny Cage should consider sharing his workout routine with the rest of us.

Regardless, Omni-Man is set to join the game in November, marking him as the inaugural guest fighter in Mortal Kombat 1. Tremor will accompany him, indicating that a new cameo can be expected with each new addition to the roster. As for the precise release date of this duo, we will need to exercise patience, as no further specifics have been disclosed at this time.
