—Kollector

Kollector is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series.

Kollector made his debut in Mortal Kombat 11 as a debt collector for Shao Kahn, a position he served long before the death of the Outworld Emperor.

About Kollector

Kollector is the uncaring and rapacious tribute collector of Shao Kahn. Despite being subservient to his master, he is consumed by greed, caring only for his own wealth and status and will kill anyone who dares challenge it. Though he was born into poverty, he was raised through the ranks and was eventually able to reach the position he holds now.

His race, the Naknada, were slaves to the Kahn, building the Coliseum among other things. As with other Naknadas, Kollector is named after his profession, in this case he used to be Shao Kahn's loyal taxkeeper and tribute collector.

Appearance

Kollector has six arms; four regular arms coming from his shoulders, and a pair of smaller arms coming from his back that support his backpack, as well as a slender but toned build. His outfit is adorned with items that appear to flaunt his wealth. He has blue colored skin and has orange glowing eyes.

Combat Characteristics

Powers and Abilities

Even though he has a skinny stature, Kollector is still able to lift an entire person with only two arms, proving him to be quite strong. Since he has the need to collect every item and trinket, he has acquired lots of weapons throughout his lifespan, which he uses in combat. The satchel that he carries acts as a "Hammerworld", being able to store items much larger than the satchel itself, including his arsenal of weapons and riches that he has horded. This even includes an entire person as seen in one of his outros. He is also keen in magic, being able to teleport, charge his weapons with blue fire and shoot green flames.

Signature moves

  • Demonic Mace: Kollector charges his mace, which causes a blue flame to burn inside the mace, before he releases it, launching it at the opponent, striking them in the chest and knocking the opponent down. Kollector can charge the attack, which when fully charged can deal slightly more damage. The attack can be canceled before it connects, but can only be canceled when charged. (MK11)
    • If this attack successfully hits when fully charged, the attack turns into a Krushing Blow, where when the mace strike the opponent's chest, it shatters the ribcage and deals nearly four times the original damage or deals nearly three times the fully charged damage.
  • Shotel Fury: Kollector performs a series of quick stabs and slashes, pulling his blades from his bag to stab and slash the opponent four times with the fourth stab being lodged in the opponent's shoulder with Kollector lastly pulling the blade out and kicking the opponent to separate the two. (MK11)
    • Amplifying the attack has Kollector stab the opponent an additional time instead of kicking them, instead now lifting them up and slamming the opponent on the ground to separate Kollector's blades and the opponent. Kollector is also given the option to slam the opponent down on the opposite side.
  • Damned Bola: Kollector pulls out a bola from his bag, spins it and throws it at the opponent where it wraps around the opponent. Immediately after, the bola vanishes and the opponent catches fire with a blue fire and falls backwards as a result. The attack can be delayed before Kollector tosses it and can be canceled at any time. (MK11)
    • Amplifying the attack no longer has the opponent catch fire, but has the bola orbit the opponent and constrict them, stunning them and setting them up for a free hit. Amplifying the attack reduces the attacks damage at the expense of stunning the opponent.
  • Relic Absorb: Kollector pulls out his mystic beacon from his bag that glows and causes an aura to surround Kollector while he holds it in front of himself. While he holds his mystic beacon, it parries any and all projectiles with the exception of Fatal Blows. The attack can be delayed.
    • Amplifying the attack sends a slow moving fireball towards the opponent. The fireball only travels halfway across the arena if the projectile is parried at full-screen distance. Additionally, the attack can only be amplified when it parries a projectile.
  • Up Demonic Mace: Kollector charges his mace, which causes a blue flame to burn inside the mace, before he releases it, launching it at the opponent in an upward diagonal direction, striking them in the head and knocking the opponent away. Kollector can charge the attack, which when fully charged can deal slightly more damage. The attack can be canceled before it connects, but can only be canceled when charged. (MK11 - Equip Ability)
  • Demonic Clutch: Kollector grabs the opponent, lifts them up and stabs them three consecutive times before throwing them to the ground in front of him. (MK11 - Equip Ability)
  • Bag Bomb: Kollector tosses his vial at the opponent which causes a small explosion on impact dealing damage and causing the opponent to stumble backwards. The attack can be used at different ranges, regular and far, called Far Bag Bomb, respectively. (MK11 - Equip Ability)
    • If a Bag Bomb makes contact with a Vial Of Sorrow flame, the Bag Bomb explodes dealing increased damage and launching the opponent into the air for a juggle.
  • Vial Of Sorrow: Kollector tosses his vial on the ground, shattering into a green flame that lingers on the fightline for some time. If the opponent stands in the flames, they will take damage-over-time. This attack can stack up to four times. The attack can be thrown at different ranges, Close/Far Vial Of Sorrow, respectively. Connecting or being struck by a Krushing Blow or Fatal Blow ends this effect prematurely. (MK11 - Equip Ability)
  • Demonic Comet: Kollector can now use Vial Of Sorrow and Bag Bomb while in the air. The attack retain their original effects and ranges, called (Air) Close/Far Vial Of Sorrow and (Air) Far Bag Bomb, respectively. (MK11 - Equip Ability)
  • Fade Out: Kollector crouches down with his vial in his hands, disappearing in a green flame and reappearing behind his opponent. Kollector also has the option to teleport away from the opponent, called Far Fade Out, respectively. Performing Far Fade Out requires and consumes a bar of Defensive Meter. (MK11 - Equip Ability)
  • Relic Lure: Kollector pulls out his mystic beacon which draws the opponent closer to Kollector until the beacon releases a blue flame, knocking the opponent away. This ability replaces Relic Absorb when equipped. (MK11 - Equip Ability)
    • Amplifying the attack causes the attack to launch the opponent in the air for a juggle when it draws the opponent in. The amplified version deals less damage at the expense of juggling the opponent.
  • War-Quoit Toss: Kollector throws a chakram at the opponent that lodges into their chest. Kollector then retracts the chakram using magic, forcing and knocking the opponent to the ground as it returns to him. If Kollector is struck right at the chakram connects, the opponent will be stunned by the attack and Kollector will not retract and retrieve it, though this window is very short. This ability replaces Damned Bola and requires two ability slots when equipped. (MK11 - Equip Ability)
    • Amplifying the attack has Kollector not retract the chakram and instead leaving it lodged into the opponent, reducing the attacks damage but stunning the opponent and setting them up for a free hit. The effect is the same Kollector is struck right as the attack hits.
    • If this attack successfully hits the opponent during a Back Dash or Getup Roll, the regular version of the attack turns into a Krushing Blow, where when the chakram lodges into the opponent's chest, it is dug significantly deeper, dealing increased damage and bouncing the opponent high off the ground when Kollector retracts the chakram, allowing for a juggle.
      • This Krushing Blow damage can be increased if the opponent is standing in Vial Of Sorrow.
  • Fatal Blow - A Slight Donation: Firstly, Kollector sends a burst of flame from his beacon which blinds the opponent. He then swings his mace to hit their stomach, followed by a hit across their face using his beacon, turning them around. He takes out his daggers with four of his arms to stab them multiple times, then sinks them in and yanks them all out at the same time. Afterwards, he uses one hand to ram a dagger through their skull and then slices the opponents throat, after which they fall to the ground. (MK11)

Trivia

  • Kollector is the first playable character with more than two arms who isn't a Shokan.
    • He is also the first playable character to have six arms.
  • When interacting with Erron Black, Kollector mentions that Erron killed his brother, wanting to "collect vengeance".
  • Kollector is a loyal servant to Shao Kahn, having fled his service after Kotal Kahn took the throne.
  • Kollector's design is likely an inspiration from Kali, the hindu goddess of destruction. They both share a lot in common, from the way they are dressed in riches and gold, have multiple arms, collect body parts (most notably heads) and wield multiple different weapons, including a sickle, a knife and the mystic beacon (Kali sometimes uses a head which she holds by their hair instead).
  • An interaction with Raiden suggests it was Raiden who gave Kollector his name, however could be false as Shao Kahn knew Kollector long before Raiden did.
  • An interaction with Jade explains why Kollector was absent during the tournament in MK 2011.
  • During an interaction with Noob Saibot, Kollector compares himself to the latter, however Noob Saibot dismisses it by calling Kollector a thug and not a thief.
  • In MK11, Kollector uses the most weapons out of all the characters on the roster.
  • Similar to Tanya's interactions with Mileena in Mortal Kombat X, Kollector will never talk ill about Shao Kahn when interacting with him.

Errors

  • When Kollector performs his For The Kollection Fatality, at times when ripping the opponent to shreds, his secondary arms do not move when performing the finisher, making it as if the opponent is ripped to shreds by nothing.
  • If a Brutality is performed on Kollector that has him sitting/laying next to a wall, both his smaller arms and bag clip into said wall that his opponent creates.
  • When a Fatality is performed on Kollector, his item bag falls off his back, however, his smaller arms will not go limp like his larger arms, but rather remain in place as if the bag is still there.
    • Similar to when Krushing Blows are done on him, his third pair of arms simply stiffen and don't move.
