First Appeared In: Mortal Kombat 3 (PSOne/Sega Genesis/SNES, 1995)
Fatality: The Taser from Hell
Why We Like Him: Well, for starters, the way his name is spelled is kinda awesome. Secondly, he's a cop trying to uphold the law in a world where thunder gods and four-armed giants fight in the streets; it's the toughest job in the video game world, but somebody's gotta do it. Stryker protects the American people and serves up an ass whuppin' courtesy of his grenades and pistols. He gets some unwarranted hate for being so normal, but that's exactly why we appreciate him.
