Skarlet is a minor villain from the Mortal Kombat games, originally being a rumored glitch who spun off into her own character.


Due to the fact Shao Kahn, the tyrannical emperor of the Outworld, trusted almost no one, he used his dark magic and the blood of several fallen warriors to create his own female assassin. What was formed was a bloodthirsty kunoichi under the name Skarlet who lived off the blood of her defeated victims.

She is only seen in the Mortal Kombat 9 DLC as a downloadable character.

Personality and TraitsEdit

Skarlet, due to only making one minor appearance in the Mortal Kombat universe, lacks any personality. However, she is assumed to be a bloodthirsty sadist judging from her origins and actions.

Weapons and AbilitiesEdit

Skarlet is notable for her animalistic fighting style, which is based off taijutsu. Combined with her apparently sadistic personality and being forced to harvest blood from her enemies to live, she is extremely violent and uses this for her advantage. Being a hemomancer, she can teleport by turning her entire bio-structure into a puddle of mobile blood and form her own blood into lethal projectiles. Also, since she is a kunoichi, she is equipped with several daggers including four kunais and a tanto.


  • As mentioned above, Skarlet was made when a rumor came to light that a glitch could occur in Mortal Kombat II where Kitana had her ninja clothing turned blood red.
  • Skarlet is extremely similar to Ermac, another Mortal Kombat fighter. They are both red garbed ninjas who originated from a rumored coloration glitch, were a fusion of blood and souls by Shao Kahn, and loyally serve their maker by utilizing their ferocious fighting capabilities.
