1 min

If you’ve been playing Mortal Kombat 1, you may be wondering which Kameos are the best. If you’ve had the game since its release, you’ve probably spent a lot of time trying out the different Kameo fighters. As any fighting game fan knows, certain characters have a competitive advantage. So, it’s a good idea to adapt and choose the fighters you have the best chance with. Our Kameo tier list will answer all your questions.

There is a wide range of abilities available with each of the Kameos currently accessible in the game. This may change as new Kameos are added through DLC and balance updates are released. Without further ado, here is our Kameo Tier List for Mortal Kombat 1!

Mortal Kombat 1 Kameo Tier List

Below, you can see where we currently rank each Kameo. This is based on our own gameplay and experience with the Kameo throughout dozens of matches.

S-Tier: Darrius, Frost, Kano, Shinjinko, Sub-Zero

A-Tier: Cyrax, Jax, Scorpion, Sektor, Stryker

B-Tier: Goro, Kung Lao, Motaro, Sareena, Sonya

You can see that there are five Kameos for each tier. We chose three different tiers because each Kameo has strengths and weaknesses that are equivalent to their weaknesses. Each Kameo’s attack patterns are quite different and beneficial in certain situations. For example, Darrius has multiple wide attacks that can deal heavy damage in your combo. On the other hand, if you choose Kano, you would have a Kameo that is one of the best at long range but not great at short range.

It can become quite strategic when facing off against your opponents. Your Kameo choice can easily change depending on your character of choice. Using our tier list should give you a well-rounded idea of who is best to use, depending on the situation in front of you.
