Mortal Kombat Character: Shinnok
Level Of Brutality: 6.66

Shinnok is one of the most evil characters a part of the series. As the ruler of the Netherrealm, Shinnok can impersonate any other being of his choosing, and transform into a powerful demon. Shinnok not only has the attacks and fatalities to back up how brutal he is, but he has the cunning and deviousness, too. He can manipulate people to do his bidding, and questioning his actions essentially leads to death. (As was the case in Mortal Kombat 4 when Shinnok kills Reptile.) He's arguably as heartless as Shao Kahn, and somehow manages to get out of the most severe scenarios, never giving up on his goal of taking over all of the realms.
