Mortal Kombat 11: Ash May Not Be DLC - But Arya Might Be

Fans of Ash Williams, the chainsaw-handed monster fighter, were disappointed recently to learn that he would not be joining the cast of Mortal Kombat 11 through future DLC. The possible inclusion of the character was purely speculative in nature, but the conspiracy theorizing of his possible addition was abruptly shut down when Bruce Campbell himself confirmed that there was no such plan in motion.

While this is certainly disappointing, as Ash would have made a great addition alongside such previous surprises like Freddy and Jason in Mortal Kombat X, fans need not worry, for there is another waiting in the shadows to join the fight. Standing at a terrifying 5'1 (155 cm), a monstrous 112 lbs (51 kg) and fresh from her long horse ride from Westeros, Arya Stark of Winterfell would make the perfect addition to the fight!

Why Arya? Well, let us review her extensive training over the past eight seasons of Game of Thrones. She carries with her a sword named Needle and a dagger forged from Valyrian steel, so she has poke in the most literal sense for close and medium range. From Syrio Forel, famed water dancing fighter of Braavos, she learned to be quick, silent, and to tell death "Not today," meaning that final hits that would otherwise allow an opponent activate a "Finish Her" have a chance to slide off.

From Sandor "The Hound" Clegane she learned a deep love of cooking, particularity for chicken. This has no impact on her battle prowess, it is simply good to know. From the man we still assume to be truthfully named Jaqen H'ghar, Arya learned how to fight without relying on her eyes, and while serving in the house of Black and White, developed an intricate understanding of poisons, which she would use without tact in the Mortal Kombat universe by throwing various vials and poisons at her enemy, granting effective zoning.

Her finishing move would be simply titled "Stick 'em with the pointy end," as Gendry Baratheon steps on stage and begins handing Arya dagger after dagger, which she throws with precision into her opponent's eyes, neck, and finally, heart.

Is this proposal supported by any evidence or hints made by the developers? Absolutely not. It is instead it is fueled by the desires of this writer. Unfortunately, a man cannot tell a girl when exactly she must do a thing. A girl cannot make a thing happen before it is time.
