Strongest Mortal Kombat Character
Debate Rounds (3)
Kenshi's weaknesses parallel Ermac's strengths. They are similar in the sense that they possess telekinetic powers however, Ermac's power greatly exceeds Kenshi's. Ermac was created by Shao Khan's sorcerers as the ultimate champion. He holds the powers of all the greatest fallen warriors in Mortal Kombat lore. Essentially, Ermac is all of the strongest past Mortal Kombat characters combined.
A reason as to why Kenshi is not the strongest is that he is blind. Despite excelling in all other senses, Kenshi lacks sight. Sight is a key component to combat. Without seeing, you cannot hit. Kenshi's power is too insignificant in comparison to Ermac's and the fact that he is blind only further disadvantages him.
Therefore, as the negation I argue that Kenshi is not the most powerful character in Mortal Kombat and that, apart from the boss-types, Ermac is in fact the most powerful.

http://dictionary.reference.com.... So, pretty much everyone dies except for Blaze and this is inevitable. Part of the message behind the canon timeline is to portray the existential flaws within combat itself. Even the boss-types are defeated with ease so it is an invaluable argument to assume that Ermac's death was a testament to his strength, or lack thereof. So it doesn't matter how or when they died, the fact is they died. After reviewing the video, it is shown that Kenshi was no hero.I apologize for not clarifying this earlier but as a Shokan, Sheeva would qualify as a boss-type as Kintaro and Goro do. Instead, Kenshi took a cheap shot at Sheeva while she was being attacked by two opponents, thus leaving her open. In the end, Kenshi was defeated by Quan Chi, who is also a master of the sword. So, if your argument was correct and Kenshi was the strongest, his "legendary" sword ability should have carried him to victory. However, he is defeated by a simple blow that he literally DIDN'T SEE COMING (lol). Afterwards, Shang Tsung's shapeshifting into Ermac only shows how powerful Ermac is in comparison. If Ermac's power could be used to defeat an opponent that could defeat Kenshi, then Kenshi's power is left behind two characters now. The order being Ermac, Quan Chi, and THEN Kenshi. Continuing onto the canon timeline itself, one can see that Ermac's role within it is significantly more pivotal. Ermac not only entered the Mortal Kombat tournament much earlier, but he did in fact train Kenshi. After Kenshi helped Ermac escape Shao Khan's control, Ermac trained him to further his combat skills in telekinesis. Also, Kenshi's ability to re-adjust to his senses took him over 10 years while Ermac's senses have never been impaired. It can also be seen that, in the canon, Ermac is killed by Sonya and Jax however, these are two powerful characters in Mortal Kombat and he would have won if it were fair. However, Kenshi was defeated by a lone opponent who is rather unsung, the opponent being Mavado. All this can be seen on their character bio pages; http://mortalkombat.wikia.com... http://mortalkombat.wikia.com...
