Reptile/Baraka is one of my favorite tag combos. The "supposedly tough but canon-wise easy-to-beat henchmen" team.

Yeah, they are two of my favorite MK characters but in the MK story they make them look like incompetent henchmen. Almost Team Rocket status.

They should star in a sitcom.

The greatest aspect of Barakas game is that it's almost impossible to touch him on wakeups, you can't jump in at him, and you can't zone him with meter. He also has a wickid frame trap leading off from the d4.

Basically, he is like fighting a stegosaurus with a jet peck.

aside from blade charge, the rest of his specials are really bad on block, though, right?

Blade charge is unsafe unless well-spaced. Spin can be interrupted if crouched. Slices are safe, and spark is obviously range-safe. Chop chop is his only truly terrible move on block.

REO should start using Baraka so people will request for him to be nerfed.

Hey at least Reptile won a Mortal Kombat tournament in the past games lol. Baraka on the other hand not so much. But yeah, Baraka is much much better after the patch and hence is my new main replacing Reptile as well. I'm wondering when we'll see an updated tier list since the patch has dropped. I'm sure he's had to of moved up in the ranks at least a little bit.

Just interested in others opinions is all.
