Fans of Mortal Kombat are pretty geeked about NetherRealm Studios' upcoming entry into the long-running franchise. Die-hard gamers in the fighting game community have been going over what the rest of the roster might look like for Mortal Kombat X, as well as what some of the mystery fighters might be. Well, before NetherRealm rolls out the entire roster, here are a few notable pugilists who really need to make the cut in the latest entry in the gory fighting game series.

For those of you who don't know, Mortal Kombat X is the upcoming cross-generational fighting game due for release next spring in 2015. If you have an old Xbox 360 or PS3 you'll be able to jump right into the action just the same as someone with an Xbox One or PS4. The game has already revealed a number of characters, including Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Kano, Quan Chi and Raiden, to name but a few. But it's time to start thinking about who could be in the game based on all those other empty slots on the roster. So here's a list of five mystery fighters that would perfectly fit into the mythology and themes of Mortal Kombat X.

Jason Voorhees From Friday The 13th
He has the charm of a tree-trunk and the brute strength of a super-zombie. Heck, Jason Voorhees is a super-zombie. He would likely be a brutish, slow character that relies on unbridled power to overtake his opponents. It wouldn't be hard coming up with a finisher for him because he has such an extensive list of fatalities to his name, from face-squashing to impalements, to literally knocking someone's head off with a single punch; Jason's repertoire for killing is almost unrivaled. That's not to mention that the Crystal Lake carnage creator has also been on the pugilist wishlist ever since Freddy Kreuger made his debut in Mortal Kombat 9.
