Nimbus Terrafaux in the Sega Genesis version of the first Mortal Kombat.

Nimbus Terrafaux was a gag created by Electronic Gaming Monthly as supposedly a hidden playable character exclusive to the Genesis version of the first Mortal Kombat. He was said to be an African-American kickboxer.

Trivia

  • Even his name gives hints to him being a joke, as Terrafaux can be translated into 'Fake Earth' or 'Fake Land'.
  • While believed to be an April Fool’s gag from EGM, the character was first mentioned in the December 1993 issue, and mentioned again in the March 1994 issue.
