Kombatant: Scorpion
Finisher Type: Fatality
Game: Mortal Kombat

It's hard to get more iconic than this. Scorpion is creator Ed Boons' favorite character, and it shows. Scorpion is a warrior among warriors – a spear hurling, tortured soul who thirsts for revenge. His original fatality was creepy to the max – his bleached skull breathed a plume of hellfire, reducing his opponent to a pile of bones. Just remember to hold 'block' when you tap 'up.'
