Blink And You Might Miss Mortal Kombat's First Gay Character
Category:Male Characters | Mortal Kombat Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
Observant fans have just outed a closeted gay character in Mortal Kombat X, said to be the first in the series. The fighter is Kung Jin, a cousin of the famed Kung Lao, and an archer who riddles his opponents with arrows during his blood fatalities. His orientation is something slipped subtly into the game, and appears to be first spotted by Gay Star News who was paying close attention during one of his flashback cutscenes. In the scene, Raiden tries to convince Kung Jin to join the Shaolin Monks, and follow in the footsteps of his ancestry. Kung Jin is resistant. Glad we have observant fans! Again, small steps, but steps all the same.
