Black, Female, Fighter #10


(According to an article made last year there have only ever 13 playable female characters. The list doesn't include fighting game characters for reasons I don't agree with. As such, I have decided to put a spotlight on 14 of these characters, to see what is being dismissed here. There are MORE than that, but I admit, not MUCH more.)

Tanya

Game
Mortal Kombats 4, Deception, Armageddon, and X

Bio

She's a traitor to team good. In fact, for a while, betrayal was about her only characterization. Due to the fact that she only exists because the MK team realize "Oh, shit, we haven't added any new characters yet" and made quick changes to Kano, Noob Saibot, and in her case, Kitana, to make them "new".

How Black is she?

Like Jade, her mocha skin doesn't betray the fact she's basically an alien

Prominence

Let's put it this way: MKX's first DLC characters, where a monster from an 80's movie, a minor character from a largely reviled spinoff game and her, and the minor character is the one people where expecting more besides the monster.

Tanya's the poor man's Jade.

Fight examples

Flaws

The same way Jade is mostly just a goon, Tanya's just a goon.

Pros

Those Special moves tho. I mean, Jade's moveset is pretty much my favorite thing about her.
