A lot more characters have been added, along with backgrounds for Ryu and Scorpion and the logos of each respective series have been placed over the flagship characters portrayed. Ryu's background is based on his stage from Street Fighter II and its spin-offs, as well as Street Fighter X Mega Man. Scorpion's background is based on a Netherrealm-themed stage from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Portraits of Sub-Zero, Ken Masters, Kitana, Chun-Li, Raiden, Guile, Liu Kang, Zangief, Shao Kahn, and M. Bison have also been added to the center between Scorpion and Ryu. Several characters did not make it in, and I am greatly saddened by this just as much as you are. I was actually hoping to make face-offs for Baraka VS Blanka, Sonya Blade VS Cammy, Mileena VS Poison, and Johnny Cage VS Dhalsim were also considered among others. I don't think I want to make a sequel as this was difficult to draw. It's easier for me to draw toon-styled artwork than realistic artwork.

Mortal Kombat and all related characters were created by Ed Boon and John Tobias and are property of Warner Bros. and Netherrealm Studios. Street Fighter and all related characters are property of Capcom. I take no credit for any characters. This is just a work of fan-art, and I have no intention of making a profit on this.

Wow what a weird match up! The only two i can agree with is Kitana x Chun-Li! (Because both are like lead ladies of respective series!) and Shao Kahn x M.Bison But others? gimme a break! First ninjas do not ever associate anyhow with "heroes", even though they're almost mascots of MK franchise (though this is arguable, i think Liu Kang is just AS iconic...), second who the hell think its good idea to match giant greezy wrestler dude with thin, agile and elegant classic kung fu user?...And the last Raiden and Guile??! really now?!! why? just because both are kind of secondary protags or very important characters to main character like Ryu or Liu Kang? ...just  weird! here's MUCh better match up choices - 1.Ryu vs. Liu Kang, 2.Ken vs. Kung Lao, 3.Guile vs. Jax, 4.Zangief vs. Goro! Like i said M.Bison vs. Kahn and Kitana vs. Chun are perfectly fine though...

I did this a while back, but yeah, you do have a point. Though it wouldn't be the first time a fighting game's protagonist isn't the poster boy/girl. If you've ever played the Marvel VS Capcom series, you may have noticed the succubus (soul-stealing by seduction female demon) named Morrigan. She's from the Darkstalker's series, but the main character is normally anti-hero vampire Demitri. Though this is quite debatable, as Morrigan is one of the more major characters, and tends to do less evil than Demitri himself.

I may try adding to this someday with matchups like Cammy VS Sonya, Sagat VS Shang Tsung, and Seth VS Onaga, but while Liu Kang and Kung Lao are the true counterparts of Ryu and Ken, Scorpion and Sub-Zero are the most iconic, and aside from Chun-Li, Ryu is the only SF character to appear in all crossovers of the Capcom universe. So I thought it would be better to pit the more recognizable characters so people could quickly think "Oh, MK and SF!". The two ninjas even hold the cover art of the most recent game, and Scorpion himself is shown closer to the viewer on the cover of MK vs DCU, as well as being the only MK character as a guest in Injustice, even in his character ending.

...The best match-up for Scorpion and Sub-Zero are guess who? thats right...Our famous shadoloo boys - Balrog and Vega! Both pairs hate each other in the respective universe (Scorpion hates Sub-Zero, while Balrog hates Vega)! Another similarity is that Balrog and Vega, just like Scorpion and Sub-Zero worked for evil mastermind in the respective universe, while it might not be the case with Scorpion and Sub-Zero anymore, it is still actual for Balrog and Vega despite their hatred for each other! Both pairs are tied with these bonds and share a lot of similarities!...so i thought from that stand point its best Scorpion's and Sub-Zero's match ups!

Oh and just forgot one more thing! Sagat though would be better matched with Quan Chi (in my opinion...), despite the fact that Quan Chi unlike Sagat wasn't there for a long in MK universe and was introduced much later, but from the character and background story perspective they both perfectly fit each other onto the role of "dark horse" bosses, who're there to "stab back" or betray to reeach their own, independant goals! Thats how i see it! Shang Tsung is better matched with M.Bison to be honest! The reason i said M.Bison is perfect match up for Shao Kahn is because i was talking about THIS roster you made, but since you didn't include neither Shang Tsung nor Akuma, i had to pick these two main bosses as "perfect match up"! But i think that REAL perfect match up for Shao Kahn is Akuma! While M.Bison is basically Shang Tsung of SF world!...

Now thats arguable! Kung Lao and Liu Kang are less iconic than ninjas? LOL whom are you fooling kid?! These hipsters at MK forums all around the web were crying like little children when they found out their favorite (which is Liu Kang off course) didn't make it in first trailer and complain all the way till he's finally been revealed! I would question ninjas being mascots of MK series! These have to be on the first place Liu Kang and Kung Lao along with other "Raiden earthrealm protectors, including Nightwolf!", and THEN any ninja should follow!...

Thanks! This one was pretty difficult for me since I'm normally better at sketching toon characters. I like the way it turned out though.
