- Clan: Special Forces Faction
Originally, Officer Kurtis Stryker seemed like an interesting addition to the list of Mortal Kombat characters. After debuting in MK3, Stryker was described as a member of the New York City Police Department who led the Special Riot Control division. He uses things like guns, explosives, tasers, and nightsticks in battle. At first, with the smaller list of characters, Stryker kind of made sense. Yet in spite of his knack for surviving against major threats, the character is no longer really appealing. He has yet to really evolve since his debut either.
