One of the most exciting features of the new Mortal Kombat 1 is the Kameo Fighters system. The Kameo fighters are characters that you can have on your side who will help you fight your enemy. They can’t be directly controlled like your main character; instead, they act as more of an extension of you and perform moves and use abilities to dominate the fight.
There are a total of 15 Kameo Characters in Mortal Kombat 1. Here are all of them listed below in no particular order.

Sareena is the best Kameo fighter in the game and one of the easiest. She has a fast-recharging projectile, which helps keep the enemy on their toes. Moreover, she can gradually drain the enemy’s meter by placing a magical ring on the ground. Not only that, her third ability is boomerang blades that stun and drag the opponent towards you.
Playstyle: Offense, Projectiles, Kombo Extension.
Sektor is one of the best options for Kameo fighters. He wields a flamethrower, which has the ability to deal devastating amounts of damage. Moreover, he can also perform a teleport punch, although it is not that good. However, his best ability is his homing missiles, which can quickly decimate opponents.
Playstyle: Offense, Kombo Extension, Punisher.
Darrius, while being good, is an attractive Kameo fighter. He blends in smoothly with the regular fighting and can easily feel like an extension of you. Perhaps the best part about him is his swinging ability. Your character can grab Darrius and swing him around, dealing damage to the enemy. Moreover, he can stun and launch an enemy, allowing you to execute your combos.
Playstyle: Defense, Rush Down Prevention, Projectiles.
Cyrax is a cyborg assassin well known for his unique combat. He is straightforward to use and is an excellent assistant in fights. Moreover, Cyrax has a total of three abilities. These include being able to throw a net on the enemy to stop them, launch them in the air using his Cyrax copter, or blow them up through the power of self-destruction.
Playstyle: Well-Rounded, Kombo Extension, Movement Amplification.
Scorpion can remove his mask and breathe fire at the enemy, dealing massive damage. Moreover, he can shoot multiple fireballs with an overhead flaming sword attack. Furthermore, he can help you get out of danger by pulling you towards him with his spear.
Playstyle: Offense, Projectiles, Kontrol.
Frost is one of the coolest Kameo fighters that you can use. She has a low freeze attack that can quickly travel across the screen, not giving your opponents the time to react and stunning them. This allows you to carry out your combos easily.
Moreover, she has a slow-moving ice orb attack, which freezes on contact. However, this attack is easily dodgeable. She also possesses a mid-attack, which causes an iceberg to appear out of the ground but can be easily blocked.
Playstyle: Well-Rounded, Kombo Starter, Movement Amplification.
With the new game, Kung Lao brings along his teleport ability. However, unfortunately, it is pretty nerfed. Kung Lao grabs the player and teleports them behind the enemy, but this teleport is a bit slow, so the surprise factor diminishes.
Nonetheless, it can help you dodge the enemy’s projectiles and punish the enemy. Furthermore, he can throw a low projectile hat and perform a spin attack, throwing the enemy in the air.
Kano is a perfect option when choosing a Kameo fighter. He can throw knives, which can help in pressuring the enemy and helping you in spacing out. Moreover, he can shoot lasers from his eyes, which can damage the enemy with devastating amounts of damage. Lastly, he has a spinning ball attack, which can be very strong if used when pushing towards the enemy.
Playstyle: Defense, Tricky, Air & Ground Prevention.
Jax is a powerful fighter. He works based on pure and raw strength. He can grab the enemy in the air. Moreover, he also can hit and slam the enemy repeatedly. Not only that, but perhaps the best ability is his ground pound, which can launch the enemy in the air.
The best part about this is that it is an unblockable attack. However, use this carefully, as you can end up ground-pounding yourself.
Playstyle: Defense, Kontrol, Movement Amplification.
Motaro is an interesting choice, as he is pretty tricky to unlock. Nevertheless, this does not make his abilities any less effective or useful. He can perform a triple fireball blast that does a lot of damage. Moreover, he can grab enemies who are blocking and teleport your character, improving your movement while fighting.
I’ve been gaming since I got my PlayStation 2 back in 2008, playing all types of games from WWE, all to way to Naruto, you name it. When I’m not gaming, I’m either focusing on my Electrical Engineering degree or playing football. I absolutely LOVE multiplayer games; carrying my team is pretty fun 😉
