'''King of the Hill''' is an online game mode which debuted in [[Mortal Kombat (2011 video game)|''Mortal Kombat (2011)'']] and later reappeared in [[Mortal Kombat X (2015 video game)|''Mortal Kombat X'']].
'''King of the Hill''' is an online mode in [[Mortal Kombat (2011)]], somewhat resembling the spectator view present in Dead or Alive 4, this mode differs in that observers are given the ability to interact directly with those currently engaged in battle. Bystanders have the option to boo, cheer, and perform actions based on the fight taking place (such as throwing a tomato at the screen, or holding up a piece of cheese). Kombatants earn Respect Points based upon the recently played match, with spectators given the opportunity to rate the winner of the battle '''0.0''' out of '''10'''. After the ratings have been awarded, the loser leaves the stage and joins the spectators while the next person in line fights the new/defending king.
 
   
Xbox 360 owners are able to import their Xbox Live avatar directly into the mode, while PlayStation 3 owners use the default character avatars.
