Ed Boon of NetherRealm Studios has received countless requests for characters to put into the Mortal Kombat series. When Mileena was excluded from Mortal Kombat 11’s base roster, fans were quick to let Boon and the rest of NRS know about their disappointment regarding the absence of Kitana’s clone.
Although the request for Mileena is among the sensible ones, not every request is to be taken seriously. During an interview on the FestiGame Twitch channel, Ed Boon revealed the strangest request that he’s ever received. Yes, it’s even weirder than the idea of putting (Ultra Instinct) Shaggy into Mortal Kombat 11.
“What has been the strangest request from fans to add to Mortal Kombat?” asked the interviewer of Ed Boon.
“I think it would be when they asked ‘Why don’t you put Ed Boon as a fighter in the game?'” stated Boon. “I never understood why they would ask that. That’s such a strange question.”
Unfortunately for fans that might want to see Ed Boon facing off against the likes of Scorpion and Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat, this isn’t a very likely scenario according to Boon.
“And I don’t think that’s ever going to happen either,” continued Boon. “I don’t want people coming up with ways to cut my head off.”
At this point, the interviewer commented that it might be a good idea for Mortal Kombat’s 30th year anniversary. Boon, with a smirk, appeared to be in complete disagreement with this notion.
“Don’t expect that,” concluded Ed Boon.
It seems that fans will just have to settle for Noob Saibot being a homage to the names of Mortal Kombat co-creators Ed Boon and John Tobias.
