I am Reptile, and I do not answer to you. Fight!


—Reptile to Taven in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon's Konquest Mode.

Syzoth, more commonly referred to as Reptile, is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. A humanoid-reptilian from the realm of Zaterra, Reptile has remained one of the most recognized character in the series. He has served as a neutral and antagonistic character throughout his appearances, often siding with many other Outworld characters while staying loyal to Shang Tsung.

Reptile made his debut as one of the few original characters in the first Mortal Kombat game, appearing as an unplayable secret character, the first secret character in fighting game history. He would make his playable debut in Mortal Kombat II.

A new version of Reptile appears in Mortal Kombat 1 as a playable character while serving as a supporting character in the game's Story Mode.

About Reptile

Reptile is a green garbed, humanoid reptilian creature that embodies the archetype of the unhappy underling. Said to be physically hideous and repulsive, he is renowned for his great stealth and unquestioning loyalty. Unlike many other henchmen, Reptile does not strive for power, nor is he inherently evil. He is caught in a delusional state of mind, obsessed with finding the last remaining member of his race, or freeing his homeworld of Zaterra from Outworld's grasp. Thus, he always remains loyal to Shao Kahn, only obeying other masters to survive and reach his goal of returning Zaterra to its former glory. While well-meaning and sincere, his obsession is so important to him that it causes him temporary fits of insanity. After Shao Kahn's death, his allegiance switches to over to Kotal Kahn, helping him to claim the throne from Mileena, whose rule he is displeased with.

Reptile was hidden in the first Mortal Kombat game and thus holds the distinction of being the very first secret character to appear in a versus fighting game. Before battles with an opponent he would make his appearance and jump in the middle of the screen in a Sub-Zero win pose. Above his head would be clues on how to find him, such as "Look to la luna" ("the moon" in Spanish or Italian and hinting The Pit stage), "Alone is how to find me" (denoting that he is only unlockable in single player mode), "Perfection is the key" (directing towards the double Flawless victory), or "Tip eht fo mottob" ("Bottom of The Pit" spelled backward). Once in a while he will say "I am Reptile, find me!". This concept was repeated with Smoke and Jade in Mortal Kombat II and Khameleon in Mortal Kombat Trilogy.

He was a merge between the original Sub-Zero and Scorpion characters, capable of using both of their moves. Mortal Kombat co-creators John Tobias and Ed Boon admitted in an interview that the "birth" of Reptile was when they took Sub-Zero and Scorpion and fused the two into one and colored him green (yellow + blue = green). They christened this character "Reptile" due to his green color and their reference to lizards. While he wasn't given a lot of character depth at the time, he was worked on before the release of Mortal Kombat II. Reptile returned for the second tournament with his own special moves, available from the outset.

It is not quite clear how old Reptile is. Estimates run in the tens of thousands of years or even millions. What is known, however, is that the Earthrealm was nearly destroyed by a battle between the gods millions of years ago. Reptile's race of raptors, or Saurians, escaped to another realm, Zaterra, where it was then invaded and annexed by Outworld's emperor, Shao Kahn. As was the usual process for Kahn conquering another world, most of the Zaterrans were killed in the ensuing battles, only leaving a handful of people left. Among those, or among those descended from these survivors, was Reptile. Unlike the others of his kind, who were forced into slavery, Reptile was trained to be a servant of both Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung.

In the New Era timeline depicted in Mortal Kombat 1, the Zaterrans were no longer extinct. However, Syzoth became an outcast among his people for having the ability to shapeshift into a human-like appearance. Unlike his previous incarnations who hid his reptilian appearance behind a mask, this version can freely shapeshift between his human appearance and his true Saurian form. He was a circus performer before also being blackmailed by Shang Tsung into working for him, as the sorcerer held his wife and son hostages. However, when Shang Tsung revealed that he lied about keeping Syzoth's family safe and killed them behind the Zaterran's back instead, Syzoth is recruited by Fire God Liu Kang to fight against an upcoming threat. Following the events of Story Mode, he develops a romantic relationship with the demon huntress Ashrah.


In each Mortal Kombat game that Reptile appears in, his design changes. In MK-MKT, he appeared in a human guise, wearing the same outfit as his other ninja counterparts (this form is available in Shaolin Monks if he is selected by both players in versus mode).

In MK4, he is a reptile and human hybrid with three digit hands and a collapsible jaw, much like that of a snake. Uniquely, this appearance is the first and only time he does not wear green, his outfit palette consisting of black and purple to compliment his new green texture. Reptile's bald scaly green head is uncovered. He wears a black partial mask that covers a portion of his face, a black vest with squared designs, baggy purple pants, a pair of metal shin guards, and forearm guards with spikes on them.

In Deadly Alliance, he is in his most animalistic form yet, sporting a fully developed snout, webbed hands, spikes running from his head to his spine and a long tail. His outfit otherwise grants him a more traditional ninja outfit with concessions made for his altered anatomy, such as the lack of footwear.

In Deception, Reptile appears in his human guise in Konquest and Sindel's ending; however, this is possibly an oversight.

His appearance in Shaolin Monks takes cues from his MK4 and Deadly Alliance designs with the addition of black bandages covering most of his face, leaving his eyes and mouth exposed.

In Armageddon, he re-uses his Deadly Alliance and Shaolin Monks design. In MK 2011, he has another barefoot reptile like design. In MKX, he was given a two-piece mask that allows him to open his mouth and spit acid without taking it off. He usually wears tribal clothes and goes always barefoot.

In Mortal Kombat 1, he returns with both his human and lizard forms, being able to shapeshift between the two. His human form's outfit has a longer sash to resemble a lizard tail, scaly armguards and shoulder pads and wears open-toed boots. He is also for the first time seen with a completely human face and having green eyes. Like the rest of the cast, he has tattoos on his body with a green snake painted around his left eye. His reptilian form is closer to his appearance in the 2021 movie with a monstrous appearance with no clothing, large musculature and a tail.

Combat Characteristics

Powers and Abilities

At his debut, Reptile's powers were borrowed from the cryomancer descendant, Sub-Zero, and the hellfire specter, Scorpion. By the time of MKII, he is given his own powers (albeit they shared slight similarity to Sub-Zero's, like his power slide and force ball). Reptile appears to take abilities from several reptilian creatures.

As a Saurian, Reptile remains mostly human in appearance. However, similar to Scorpion concealing a flaming skull, Reptile's mask and the skin behind it are merely a thorough guise to his true lizard form. Furthermore, he appears to remove his mask more often than Scorpion. His saliva is composed of powerful, corrosive fluids that can easily burn right through steel, much like acid. He also can fire concussive blasts of homing energy.

Reptile's distinguishing trait is his ability to render himself completely invisible. As revealed in one piece of art for Deadly Alliance, a Saurian's appearance is human-like for the most part. However, the longer they are separated from one another, the more their human guises degrade and vanish over time until their true forms are revealed. The change is more than skin deep as it also can affect the mind as well. Saurians who lose their disguises completely will begin to regress into primal fits of blind rage, attacking both friend and foe.

As shown in the Mortal Kombat X comics, Reptile can render anyone in an area invisible, as he managed to sneak himself, D'Vorah, Ferra and Torr behind Red Dragon soldiers body guarding Goro, allowing a surprise attack.

In MKX, Reptile's Noxious variation makes him exhale a green poisonous gas from his body, which damages the opponent if him/her simply stands close to him. In the Nimble variation, he gains the ability to move and attack at incredibly fast speeds, much like some sorts of lizards.

In MK1, Reptile is able to freely and quickly shapeshift between his human guise and reptilian form at will, changing into the latter to use some of his specials. He is also able to morph individual parts of his body such as his tail or upper torso.

Signature Moves

  • Acid Spit: Reptile removes his mask and spits acid at the opponent. Sometimes, the jet of acid spit would hinder the opponent for a very short time as the steam from the acid burns away at the opponent's skin. In MKII to UMK3, it appears as a thick jet spit of acid. In MK4, it appears as a stream of acid bubbles and in MK:DA onwards, a ball of acid. In MK1, Reptile transforms his upper body into its Zaterran form and spits out a jet of acid, and it can also be charged into Acid Spit Ball, a fast-travelling Mid projectile. (MKII, UMK3, MKT, MK4, MKG, MK:DA, MK:SM, MK:A, MK 2011, MKX, MK1)
    • In MK 2011, the enhanced version is called Acid Stream. Reptile spews a stream of acid.
    • In MKX, the enhanced version is called Acid Puddle. Reptile spews acid in front of himself to form a puddle of it. The opponent will take damage over time as long as they stand on it. If the opponent touches the puddle while sprinting towards Reptile, their sprint will be interrupted.
    • In MK1, the enhanced version deals more damage and hits mid, allowing to damage crouching opponents.
      • The enhanced version of Acid Spit Ball deals more damage and knocks the opponent down.
  • Power Slide: Reptile slides across the floor to the enemy, hitting them and sending them flying into the air. In Shaolin Monks, MK 2011 and MKX, Reptile secretes a trail of slime when he slides similar to the ice trail the one Sub-Zero leaves when he does. In MK 2011 and MKX this is called Slide. In MK1, it's part of the Slip-N-Died kombo. (MK, MKII, UMK3, MKT, MK:SM, MK 2011, MKX)
    • In MK 2011, the enhanced version is called Slime Trail. Reptile slides at a further distance and will hit the airborne opponent with two kicks.
    • In MKX, the enhanced version is called Slippery Slide, has armor, activates slightly faster and has Reptile recover from the attack quicker but becomes more vulnerable if the attack is blocked.
  • Chameleon: Reptile disappears or reappears in a puff of smoke. In UMK3, Reptile could not reappear unless he was hit. In Armageddon, Reptile can still turn invisible, though his weapon will remain visible. In MK 2011 this is called Invisibility and grants a small damage boost to any attack landed under this status, although his body will still distort the light and denote his position. In MKX, this is called Stealth and will make him partially invisible, like in MK 2011, or completely invisible, if the button is held down for some time. Both in MK 2011 and MKX, hitting him will turn him visible again, even if he blocks the attack. In MKX, he takes no damage from getting knocked out of being invisible. In MK1, it is called Invisibility, and Reptile covers himself in green acid that after a second turns him invisible. (MKII, UMK3, MKT, MK:SM, MK4, MKG, MK:A, MK 2011, MKX - Deceptive Variation, MK1)
    • In MK 2011, the enhanced version is called Vanish. Reptile will turn completely invisible, leaving no light distortion to help determine where he is as well as a better damage boost.
    • In MKX, the enhanced version is called Invisibility. He will turn completely invisible instantly, without the need of the button being held down, which can also be used to extend his current combo when timed right.
    • In MK11, the enhanced version activates slightly faster and has longer active time.
  • Running Serpent: Reptile swiftly runs behind the opponent and delivers a successful elbow into their face. In MK 2011, this is called Elbow Dash. In MKX, it is called Reptilian Dash, which has Reptile leave a slime trail behind as he charges and strike the enemy with a punch, and not an elbow, to knock them back. In MK1, it's called Dash Attack, and Reptile tranforms into his Zaterran form and knocks down the opponent with a claw swipe after running past them. (UMK3, MKT, MK:A, MK 2011, MKX, MK1)
    • In MK 2011, the enhanced version is called Reptilian Elbow. Reptile follows up with an uppercut that knocks his opponent down.
    • In MKX, the enhanced version is called Reptilian Smash. Reptile follows up with an uppercut that knocks the opponent in the air, allowing for a juggle.
    • In MK1, the enhanced version deals more damage.
  • Slow Force Ball: Reptile projects a green ball of energy or acid that slowly moves toward the opponent. When it hits the opponent, he/she is propelled toward Reptile. In Shaolin Monks, the green projectile homes towards opponents. In MKX, it is called Slow Forceball and Reptile is vulnerable when creating the Forceball. In MK1, the projectile explodes near Reptile. (MKII, UMK3, MKT, MK:SM, MK 2011, MKX, MK1)
    • In MK 2011, the enhanced version is called Slow Mega Ball. The size of the ball is larger, causes more damage, and travels slower.
    • In MKX, the enhanced version is called Creeping Slimeball, which travels much slower than the original one. Both the Slow Forceball and the Creeping Slimeball can also be enhanced into a Floating Ball after they've been fired. This will stop them in place at any point of the arena, where they'll will stay for some moments to block the opponent's way. Should the opponent make contract with the floating ball, they will be launched in the air for a juggle.
    • In MK1, the enhanced version deals more damage.
  • Fast Force Ball: A faster version of the Slow Force Ball. In MKX, this is simply called Forceball. In MKX, Reptile is vulnerable when creating the Force Ball. In MK1, the projectile travels the full-screen distance. (UMK3, MKT, MK:SM, MK 2011, MKX, MK1)
    • In MK 2011, the enhanced version is called Fast Mega Ball. The size of the ball is larger, it travels faster, and causes more damage.
    • In MKX, the enhanced version is called Fast Slimeball, which travels even faster than the normal version. As with the slow variant, both the Fast Forceball and the Fast Slimeball can be enhanced into a Floating Ball after they've been fired. This will stop them in place at any point of the arena, where they'll will stay for some moments to block the opponent's way. Should the opponent make contract with the floating ball, they will be launched in the air for a juggle.
    • In MK1, the enhanced version deals more damage.
  • Upper Force Ball: In Shaolin Monks, Reptile can throw his Force Ball in the air. Only Reptile as a boss can do it and he does it only if an opponent is in air. (MK:SM)
  • Acid Hand: Reptile creates a Force Ball in his hand and spins it toward the opponent, knocking them back. (MK 2011)
    • The enhanced version is called Reptilian Hand. The attack will send the opponent skyward, but decreases in damage.
  • Dash Punch: Reptile slides and punches the opponent. (MK4, MKG)
  • Super Crawl: Reptile crawls under the opponent's feet, knocking them over. (MK4, MKG)
  • Rolling Spikes: Reptile curls himself up into a ball and rolls forward, knocking the opponent off of his/her feet. (MK:DA, MK:A)
  • Klaw Pounce: Reptile leaps and slashes his opponent with both claws to knock them back. This was once a combo ender in MK 2011. In MKX, the attack can be used at different distances, called Close/Far Klaw Pounce, respectively. If timed right, he can also avoid certain projectiles by going above them with this attack's leap. (MK 2011, MKX)
    • The enhanced version is called Klaw Bounce, which has armor and increased damage. As with the original version, the attack can be used at different distances, called Close/Far Klaw Bounce, respectively.
  • Klaw Swipe: Reptile swipes one of his claws at the opponent to knock them down. (MKX)
    • The enhanced version is called Klaw Slash, which activates slightly faster and launches the opponent into the air for a juggle, however, it deals no extra damage.
  • Basilisk: Reptile concentrates for a moment, allowing him to move at greater speeds than his opponent. During this time, Reptile can perform combos that he otherwise would not be able to perform by increasing the juggle effect of all his combos and special attacks. Additionally during this time, all of Reptile's attacks deal 20% less damage and his ability to block attacks is disable. If Reptile is attacked during this time, or he connects his Throw or X-Ray attacks, the effect ends prematurely. (MKX - Nimble Variation)
    • The enhanced version is called Basilisk Runner, which has Reptile recover faster from the attack, allowing him to continue combos in some instances unlike the original version.
  • Poison Gas: Reptile increases the size and density of the noxious gas cloud he has around him, which causes it to do more damage more quickly and at a wider area for some time. Despite this, the opponent still takes the original damage of the original Noxious Gas despite applying this new effect (See Errors). (MKX - Noxious Variation)
    • The enhanced version is called Toxic Fumes, which inflicts twice the damage of Poison Gas and forms an even greater poison cloud.
  • Death Roll: Reptile transforms into his Zaterran form and pounces forward, attempting to grab the opponent. If he's successful, he bites down on their leg and spins them around, slamming them into the ground twice. (MK1)
    • The enhanced version has armor and deals more damage.
  • Falling Fangs: In mid-air, Reptile disappears and then drops down in front of the opponent, slamming them down with a claw swipe. It has a Close variation, where Reptile doesn't appear above the opponent and re-appears in his original position, and it can also be cancelled with Reptile jumping backwards and becoming invisible for a few seconds. (MK1)
    • The enhanced version deals more damage.

X-Ray/Fatal Blow

  • X-Ray - Tricky Lizard: Reptile jabs a clawed finger into the opponent's eye, then snaps their neck turning them around. As they try to recover, he kicks them in the chest, breaking their ribs while sending them backwards. (MK 2011)
  • X-Ray - Reptile Disfunction: Reptile charges the opponent to grab their head and dislocate their jaw, then gouges their eyes with his claws before crushing the opponent's skull into the ground, cracking it and further damaging the jaw. When used in the corner of an arena, Reptile is offered an extremely small window of an additional attack. (MKX)
    • Reptile can delay the activation, effectively turning himself invisible before charging. Reptile can also cancel the attack doing this, allowing him to move around and perform combos while invisible. Taking damage removes the invisibility. Just like his Stealth ability, Reptile takes no damage from getting hit out of being invisible.
  • Fatal Blow - The Beast Unleashed: Reptile turns into his reptilian form and grabs the opponent by the leg with his tail and slams them once on each side of him, with the second slam bouncing the opponent up into the air. Reptile then uses his tongue to grab them by the neck and pulls the opponent into his mouth, and bites, destroying the ribs. He then spits them back out. (MK1)

Other Moves

  • Spear: Sending out a rope with a tipped Kunai at the end, it impales itself into the victim's chest, allowing Reptile to pull him or her through the air towards him for a free hit, as well as cause a small bit of damage. This move was borrowed from Scorpion. (MK, MK 2011)
    • Reptile only uses the move in MK 2011 during a secret battle when playing an arcade ladder and encountering Klassic Reptile.
  • Iceball: Reptile sends a blast of ice directly towards the opponent to temporarily freeze them in place for a free hit. He could also freeze opponents in midair, if timed correctly. This move was borrowed from Sub-Zero. (MK, MK 2011)
    • Reptile only uses this move in MK 2011 during a secret battle when playing an arcade ladder and encountering Klassic Reptile.
  • Teleport Punch: Reptile teleports behind the opponent and connects with a flying punch to the back of the head. This move is borrowed from Scorpion. (MK, MK 2011)
  • Suplex Throw: Reptile grabs his foe, proceeds to roll backwards, brings up a leg as in a monkey flip and launches the foe halfway across the area. He then does a kip-up. Reptile uses a modified version of this throw in MK:SM in which he gets the foe in a temporary sleeper hold but then places both his knees on his foe's back and launches him. Almost all male ninjas share the Suplex Throw pre-MK4. (MK, MKII, UMK3, MKT)
  • Neck Snap: Reptile forces his foe to their knees and grabs them in a reverse headlock, where he wrenches their head quickly to one side. (MK4)
  • Throw: Reptile grabs his opponent, climbs onto their back, then either flips backwards smashing them (Forward Throw) or creates a Force Ball behind their head that explodes, knocking them to the ground (Backward Throw). (MK 2011)
  • Throw: Reptile tosses his foe in the air to catch their ankles with his tongue, hanging them upside down in front of himself. While holding them like this, he slashes them twice with his claws and then releases them to knock them away with a punch before they reach the floor. (MKX)
  • Slithering Slam: Reptile lunges his arm forwards, jabbing the opponent in the chest, then grabs them and proceeds to puke acid in their face before slamming them down on the ground. (MKX)
    • This combo can be enhanced before Reptile spits acid, which will have him slam the opponent instantly, but this time bouncing them off the floor and allowing a juggle.
  • Swamp Slam: Reptile lunges his arm forwards, jabbing the opponent in the chest twice, then grabs them and proceeds to puke acid in their face before slamming them down on the ground. (MKX)
    • This combo can be enhanced before Reptile spits acid, which will have him slam the opponent instantly, but this time bouncing them off the floor and allowing a juggle.
  • Noxious Cloud: A passive bonus in which the opponent takes minor damage-over-time so long as they remain close to Reptile. (MKX - Noxious Variation)
  • Puny Human: Reptile grabs his opponent and assumes his Zaterran form, violently slamming them into the ground three times and tossing them to the other side. (MK1)


  • Spine Rip: Reptile rips off the opponent´s head, with their spine still attached. Since Reptile had the exact same moves as Scorpion and Sub-Zero in the first Mortal Kombat, he gained the Fatalities from both. (MK)
  • Toasty!: Another borrowed Fatality, where he takes off his mask, revealing a flaming skull underneath the mask, and breathes fire on the opponent, who is reduced to a skeleton. Since he is a palette swap of Scorpion he is able to do this Fatality. (MK)
  • Tasty Meal: Reptile takes off his mask, revealing a reptilian face. He then opens his mouth and stretches out his long tongue, sticking it to his victim's head, then quickly retracts it, ripping off the head and eating it. Reptile then rubs his blood covered stomach, giving a satisfied "Mmmm..." noise. (MKII, MK:SM, MK 2011)
    • Reptile takes off his mask, revealing a reptilian face. He then opens his mouth and stretches out his long tongue, sticking it to his head and literally inhales his opponent. (MKII) (Game Gear and Master System versions only)
      • In MK 2011, this Fatality is unlocked via a DLC code. Reptile can use this in any costume. It is called Yummy! in MK 2011, but he does not rub his stomach.
  • Inviso-Slice: Reptile must be invisible to use this. His foe is very quickly ripped completely in half, with Reptile reappearing shortly afterward. How this is done is not precisely explained. In Shaolin Monks, the upper half simply disappears in a bloody mist. (MKII, MK:SM)
  • Acid Puke: Reptile gets close to the victim, opens his mouth, and spews acid over them, melting them down to a sizzling puddle. In UMK3, he regurgitates acid on the victim's body from the head top, while in MK4, he sprays acid bubbles from the same position, but inexplicably gains levitation powers while doing so, as the bubbles literally peel away at the skin and flesh of the opponent, leaving behind a bloody corpse. (UMK3, MKT, MK4, MKG)
  • Extra Meal: Reptile takes his Tasty Meal Fatality further by proceeding to eat the torso and upper legs too. (UMK3, MKT)
  • Face Chew: As the name implies, Reptile hops on the opponent's legs and shoulders and proceeds to savagely eat the opponent's face, leaving behind chunks of blood in the process. Once done, he jumps off and wipes away some of the blood on his face while the opponent staggers back in pain before plummeting to the ground as some leftover blood spills on the floor, showing a close up of the victim's now-mutilated head. (MK4, MKG)
  • Acidic Meal: Reptile spews acid on the victim's head, reducing it to a skull. He then promptly eats it with his long tongue. (MK:DA)
  • Claw Frenzy: Reptile kicks the opponent down and continuously claws at his opponent's head until it is cut off. (MK:SM)
  • Acid Yak: Reptile forces his opponent's mouth open, then vomits acid directly into it. Appearing as a boss Fatality in Shaolin Monks, Reptile simply leaves his opponent to dissolve into a skeleton. In MK 2011, Reptile approaches his victim while cackling sinisterly. He forces the victim's mouth open before vomiting acid directly into it. Reptile then plunges his hand into his opponent's body and rips out their mutilated stomach instead, leaving a gaping, bloody hole in their abdomen. If this Fatality is input in his Klassic Costume, he will take off his mask and snarl at the screen before proceeding with the Fatality. (MK:SM, MK 2011)
  • Weight Loss: Reptile turns invisible and slits the opponent's throat and stomach, causing blood to spew out. He then plants an Acid Force Ball deep into the gap of the opponent's stomach, causing their upper body to explode in a few seconds. He then hisses in delight. (MK 2011)
  • Bad Breath: Reptile spits acid into his opponent's face, melting it, he then runs up to his opponent, grabs their head, and splits it into two halves. (MKX)
  • Acid Bath: Reptile vomits a puddle of acid under the opponent's feet, melting them slowly in the process. After the legs are completely molten, Reptile proceeds by extending his tongue around the opponent's head before ripping it off and eating it. The body continues to melt, leaving the opponent's twitching hand visible. (MKX)
  • Indigestion: Reptile transforms into his reptilian form, then runs towards the opponent before turning invisible, leaving the opponent confused. Suddenly, a loud crunch is heard and blood gushes everywhere. Reptile turns visible again, revealing to have chomped down on the opponent's head from behind. He lifts them up and swallows them whole. Afterwards, he regurgitates the opponent, covered in acid and the lower half of their body missing. As the opponent slowly dissolves, they try to crawl away but one of their arms explode. Reptile approaches the opponent and destroys their head with the palm of his hand. (MK1)
  • Acid Reflux: Reptile transforms into his reptilian form and uses his tongue to strangle the opponent, his acidic saliva melting the opponent's skin. Melting the opponent's neck and hands, which fall off, Reptile snaps his tongue, sending the opponent's severed head into the air. He catches it in his mouth and crushes it, blood and acid everywhere. Reptile wipes his mouth as the opponent's body falls, then roars. (MK1)

Reptile appeared in Mortal Kombat. In the movie, he was a bipedal lizard humanoid. Initially disguised as a statue, Reptile received orders from Shang Tsung to keep Liu Kang and the other humans away from Kitana. In one instance, he manages to lurk in a cavernous structure and watch Liu Kang before spitting acid into his face. During Liu Kang and Johnny Cage's journey to rescue Sonya in Outworld, Liu Kang encounters the reptilian creature and throws him into a statue. The statue consumes Reptile, transforming him into a human ninja form. After a brutal fight, he is defeated by Liu Kang when he performs his trademarked bicycle kick. Liu Kang then crushes the de-transformed Reptile to death as he squirms out of the destroyed statue. The nature of Reptile's consumption by the statue and transformation is not explained because the camera moves up to the statue's face as the consumption is occurring, but a statue seen earlier foreshadows Reptile's fate. Like Scorpion and Sub-Zero, Reptile shared the same ninja outfit, but with a green color, and his mask had a jaw built into it. In his human guise, he was portrayed by Keith Cooke, who would play the younger Sub-Zero in the sequel. In his lizard form, Reptile had the ability to spit water-like acid and blend into his surroundings like a chameleon.

While Reptile is not seen in Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm, he does get mentioned in the third episode. Additionally, in that very same episode, another Saurian very similar to Reptile named Komodai appears. Sonya even refers to him as "Reptile" near the end of the episode.

In Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Reptile briefly reappears in the films' opening narration, where his fight with Lui Kang is briefly shown once more. Additionally, three ninjas dressed similar to Reptile confront the Earth warriors. Due to their similar costumes and powers, these three are supposed to be of the same species as Reptile. Raiden fights and defeats two of them, while the third is noticeably absent but likely defeated off screen.

Richard Dorton plays Reptile in Mortal Kombat: Rebirth. Reptile is depicted as a cannibalistic criminal who removes his victims' heads after killing them. While he's not a Saurian ninja, he has been diagnosed with a real-life disease known as Harlequin type ichthyosis, in which gives him a scale-like skin and eyes grown inward. He stores the severed heads of his victims in a refrigerator until he gets quite hungry and would eat them, piece by piece. however His age was revealed to be at least 30. His known fatalities are somewhere in the double-digits.

Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge briefly includes Reptile (who is in his MKX attire) fighting against Sonya, which ends with the ninja getting decapitated. Additionally, a few other Saurians appear throughout the film as well. One of them is even seen with Nitara, possibly as reference to Reptile's partnership with her in Deadly Alliance.

Reptile appears in the 2021 Mortal Kombat Film, with his appearance more closely resembling his design in Deadly Alliance. Here, he is only ever referred to as Syzoth, and he is sent by Shang Tsung to eliminate the heroes of earthrealm. Despite gaining the upper hand at first against Sonya and Cole Young, he is ultimately killed by Kano, who rips out his heart.


Reptile was portrayed on Mortal Kombat: Conquest by martial artist Jon Valera, primarily in his guise from the Mortal Kombat films. Hailing from the rainy, barren world of Zaterra, Reptile and the thousands of his race have the ability to shift into a camouflaged lizard form that makes visual detection difficult. Their humanoid forms command formidable martial arts abilities, and they have the ability to spit corrosive acid through their fanged masks. This acid is so corrosive that it can even kill Zaterrans themselves, as demonstrated a few times in the episode In Kold Blood.

Reptile's debut was an attack on behalf of Shao Kahn, which left civilians and an ally of Kung Lao dead. It was later discovered that he had been selected as a mate necessary to propagate the Amazonian race of Queen Kreeya with Zaterran features, and betrayed the Emperor. The Zaterrans allied with Kreeya as the guardians of her breeding hives while they matured. Reptile was shunned by Vorpax when she slew Kreeya and became the new Queen. He was narrowly defeated in combat by her chosen mate, Shang Tsung, and died at the hands of Shao Kahn's invading Shadow Priests. The demise of the rest of the Zaterrans is unknown, although one, Kiri, whom he developed a sexual relationship with in Balance of Power, was slain simultaneously with Reptile.

Comic Books

Reptile is a supporting character in the Malibu Comics series. He remains the loyal servant of Shao Kahn, and never loses a chance to make those around him remember he doesn't respond to Shang Tsung. Reptile appears in the Goro: Prince of Pain miniseries as a member of a team lead by Kitana to find the missing Goro. He also appears in the Battlewave series, most of the time alongside Mileena in a sort of love/hate relation. His most noteworthy action on the comics is when he brainwashes Sonya into marrying Shao Kahn by means of eye-induced hypnosis, an ability never found in the games.


He was part of's third wave of Mortal Kombat action figures, released just prior to the holiday season of 2006.

In 2011, if players pre-ordered Mortal Kombat from, they would receive Reptile's Klassic ninja costume and his original Fatality as bonus DLC.

  • The SNES version of MK was updated with Reptile in mind. Players only had to achieve a Double Flawless Victory to face him, and his name was used for the health bar instead of Scorpion's. This version also fixed the 10 million bonus bug (mentioned below).
  • He and Kano are the only characters from the first MK game who don't appear in the animated movie Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins.
  • In the first two Mortal Kombat games, Reptile bled red blood like the other characters. In Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Mortal Kombat Trilogy however, he bled green blood, although this is presumed this was put in due to his reptilian nature, the physical complications are off. In Mortal Kombat 4/Gold, his blood was turned back to normal red. In Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, his blood was turned back to green, although broken body stubs would appear red. His technical appearance as Onaga in Mortal Kombat: Deception, he bled red blood again. In Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, he bleeds red blood. Reptile bleeds green blood once again in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, although he bleeds red blood when he falls victim to a death trap. In Mortal Kombat (2011), he bleeds green blood, but when his Fatality is full green. In his Klassic costume his blood is green but his innards and organs are red. His innards are red from UMK3 to MK:A and blue in MK (2011).
  • Like Baraka, in the short-film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, Reptile has a different origin. Instead of being a Saurian from Zaterra, Reptile is a human cannibalistic mass murderer from Earthrealm, born with his eyes inside-out due to a condition called harlequin ichthyosis. He also murders his victims by ripping their head off, but with his hands instead of his tongue. He stores the heads in a refrigerator until he is hungry and eats them piece by piece, unlike him in the games, where he devours the heads directly. He is also mentioned to be 30 years old in the movie.
  • So far, there's been only 4 games where Reptile doesn't make a playable appearance not counting updates, ports and spin-offs. Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat Deception, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and Mortal Kombat 11
  • He, Scorpion and Sub-Zero share their Friendship in Mortal Kombat II, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Mortal Kombat Trilogy.
  • In the game Skullgirls Encore, the character Fukua has a color palette that is based off of Reptile's colors. This is one of her three color palettes referencing Mortal Kombat, the other two being Ermac and Rain.
  • Reptile is one of the few characters to fight with bare feet. Others include Sheeva, Goro, Baraka, Kintaro, Drahmin, Moloch, Kobra, Meat, and Blaze.

Mortal Kombat

  • Reptile appears as the first secret character in the series, as well as the first secret character in fighting game history.
  • Reptile's appearance was conceived as a fusion of both Scorpion and the original Sub-Zero, hence his ability to use both other moves and combos.
  • In the Arcade, Sega Genesis, and Sega CD versions of the first MK, the game recommend the player to win two perfect victories along with a Fatality without ever using block whenever they see a shadow flying in front of the moon at the Pit stage in one player mode. If done successfully the player would get an opportunity to fight the secret character Reptile: a combined version of Scorpion and Sub-Zero. In the Super NES version, the game doesn't required players to look at the moon for a shadow to do this, they would fight Reptile regardless of any shadow. If the player defeat Reptile with a Fatality, they would be awarded a score of 10,000,000 bonus points.
  • In the original arcade version of Mortal Kombat, as well as the Sega Genesis and Sega CD port, when the player fought Reptile, the name in the health bar said 'Scorpion', this was fixed in the Super NES version.
  • Due to an in-game bug (specifically, an error in the in game's assembly instruction), in the arcade version of the game, beating Reptile as player 1 in the original Mortal Kombat will only award 2 million points instead of 10 million. Many ports of the game retain this bug; the SNES version, being updated with Reptile in mind, fixed this bug.

Mortal Kombat II

  • Reptile makes his playable debut in this game, becoming a main roster character while Jade takes on his role as an unplayable secret character.
  • Reptile is the default choice for Player 2, as opposed to the default choice of Liu Kang.
    • He would take on this trait again in MK4, opposite Kai.
  • For some odd reason, performing Reptile's "Tasty Meal" Fatality in the arcade version of Mortal Kombat II on the Armory stage causes the floor to randomly slide to the left until the end of the victory screen. Only the floor will be moving, Reptile and his newly dead opponent do not move in the direction of the floor despite them being on top of it. This does not occur in the console ports.
  • Reptile's head was treated as a separate sprite, so his face appeared while invisible if he performed the Acid Spit move. This is also seen if he's frozen by Sub-Zero mid-Spit.

Mortal Kombat 3/Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3/Mortal Kombat Trilogy

  • In UMK3 for the iPod, there is a glitch where he eats his opponent's head from the opposite direction.
  • Khameleon was created to expand on Reptile's origins in Mortal Kombat Trilogy. Said to be the other last remnant of Reptile's race, her only similarity to him was that she was a palette swapped ninja.

Mortal Kombat 4

  • While Reptile's MK4 bio states that he was banished to the Netherrealm for committing genocide on other species, the MK4 comic shows Sindel (reclaiming her role as Edenia's Queen) banishing Reptile to the Cobalt Mines of Shokan for his crimes against Edenia. This is of note because until that point, the Cobalt Mines of Shokan had only been mentioned in MK: The Journey Begins and MK: Conquest. They have, so far, never appeared in any of the games.
  • Although Reptile had a new, non-ninja design in Mortal Kombat 4, a UMK3-style ninja outfit could be unlocked for him. The outfit is a green recolor of Scorpion's MK4 design down to the skull mask and skull buckle, but lacks a loincloth due to his normal costume's model lacking the necessary geometry to create it. In addition, Reptile retains his new scale-covered skin rather than using the fake human skin used previously. He will also not remove the mask for Fatalities.

Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

  • This game introduced the biggest appearance change for Reptile, giving him a more reptilian based appearance rather than a humanoid.
  • His alternate bio presents his first costume, and vice-versa.

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks

  • When Liu Kang or Kung Lao find Reptile on the Pit in Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, they refer him as "another servant of Shang Tsung", however, he will reply "I do not serve Shang Tsung". However, his MKII bio states he is Shang Tsung's protector and he does serve the sorcerer.
  • Reptile was incorrectly called "Lizard" on the rental cases for MK: Shaolin Monks at Blockbuster.

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

  • He is one of three characters in Armageddon to bleed green blood.
  • He was the only fighter from the previous two games that received a new costume and character model for Armageddon, due to considerable fan demand for his Shaolin Monks design.

Mortal Kombat (2011)

  • When selecting his Klassic outfit, he regains his human appearance, however his skin has a hue of green and he has yellow eyes.
  • Fighting him will unlock The "Pit Master" achievement and trophy in Mortal Kombat (2011).
  • Reptile is one of the only five characters whose Victory Pose breaks the 4th wall. The others being Sub-Zero, Cyrax, Freddy Krueger and Mileena.
  • Reptile is one of six characters able to do an X-Ray that hits the opponent three times, the others being Noob, Raiden, Kano, Stryker and Kintaro.
  • In Challenge #227 of the Challenge Tower, he wears the armor of Unit 5 and appears to be a green palette swap of Cyber Sub-Zero.
  • He doesn't speak in MK 2011, barring roars and snarls. He does however whisper inaudibly to Shang Tsung in the Story Mode.
  • If his Fatality Acid Yak is used on himself, his stomach is revealed to be blue.
  • Reptile has the ability to create a green smoke wall from his breath in the Story Mode. This is never used in gameplay, however.
  • When challenging Klassic Reptile, he will use Scorpion and Sub-Zero's Spear and Ice Ball attacks, respectively, during gameplay.

Mortal Kombat X

  • It is revealed in an interaction with Raiden that Reptile's real name is Syzoth.
  • Reptile, along with Raiden and Sub-Zero, have the weakest X-Rays, dealing only 31% damage.
  • Reptile's Klassic Outfit is the only Klassic ninja outfit with a different mask.
    • He and Sub-Zero are the only Klassic ninjas who can remove their mask with the outfit equipped, this being based on which variation is selected.
    • It is also the only outfit that he is not barefooted.
  • Reptile's Kraken outfit is the only one to feature a different mask.
  • Reptile and Scorpion are the only characters in MKX that can cause damage-over-time effects that come from the fighter themselves. This is only achievable through the Noxious Variation for Reptile and the Hellfire Variation for Scorpion.
  • Unlike in MK 2011, Reptile retains his reptilian appearance with his Klassic outfit equipped in MKX.

Mortal Kombat Mobile

  • Reptile's Klassic Card is the second Diamond card not achieved from a game mode rather than a Tower or from Card Packs, the first being Shao Kahn's Konqurer card.
    • Klassic Reptile can also appear in packs designated for Outworld and Klassic cards.
  • Reptile's Klassic Card is the second card in the mobile version of Mortal Kombat to grant immunity for an entire class of card, granting immunity to Poison for Outworlders. The first was Kenshi in his Elder God Kenshi card, granting immunity to critical damage for all Elder God teammates.
  • Reptile's X-Ray attack is renamed to Extinction Event in this game and is the only X-Ray that grants Regeneration.
    • Sub-Zero's MK11 card's Fatal Blow was also renamed for the mobile game.

Injustice 2

  • In the DC fighting game Injustice 2, although he is not mentioned by Sub-Zero or Raiden who are featured as playable guest characters, Reptile is referenced as one of Sub-Zero's shaders, a green shader called Secret Kombatants.

Mortal Kombat 11

  • Reptile makes a few cameo appearances. The first being in the Krypt, his appearance being unaltered from his MKX appearance and another when Shang Tsung morphs into him during gameplay using his Slide ability and changing into him at the end of a round. The design he has here is also seen as an NPC in one of Rain's fatalities, alongside Smoke and Ermac.
    • In a later update, Scorpion received the "Deadly Hybrid" and "Stinging Bite" skins, which recolor his Klassic ninja skin to resemble Reptile, down to adding scaly skin.

Mortal Kombat 1

  • Reptile's virtue is presented as "Freedom".
  • This marks the first time since Trilogy where his human form is his primary appearance.
    • While his human form did appear in Shaolin Monks and MK9, these were alternate outfits for the character.
  • Characters often calls Reptile by his real name, Syzoth in both story mode and gameplay interactions.
  • Reptile's ability to shift between the forms seems to be a reference to Kiri and Ankha from Mortal Kombat Conquest, who could similarly shift between lizard and human form.
  • If the player choose him with Johnny Cage as an announcer, he will call him as Slither in, a reference to a Slytherin House in Harry Potter franchise which also represents a reptilian snake motif.
  • Reptile seems to be the only character so far who knows Havik's real name; Dairou.


  • When Reptile performs his Yummy! Fatality on Kratos, his tongue does not go straight to Kratos' head for the first second of the Fatality.
  • In MK 2011, if Kabal performs his It Takes Guts Fatality on Reptile, Reptile's guts will be red and have red blood mixed with his regular green blood.
  • In MKX, if the Mortal Kombat premier tower is active in the Living Tower, none of the fighters will have variations active for the fights. Once encountering Reptile in the tower as the secret kombatant, he will be given a variation unlike the other fighters.
  • In MKX, when Reptile performs his Acid Bath Fatality on opponents with claws, the claws will start to clip through their fingers while the hand remains above the acid.
  • When playing with his Klassic outfit in MKX, his claws are removed for more human-like fingers. In the mobile game, his character card picture retains this feature, but during gameplay in the mobile game and inspecting the card, he has his regular claws.
  • When he performs his Get Rektiled brutality during a combo, two things can happen;
    • Reptile will remain invisible after slicing the opponent in half and remain invisible even after the announcer declares him the victor. After a short time, he will return to normal.
    • The Finish Him/Her text will appear on screen at the same time as the Brutality text appears.
  • In MKX, Reptile's passive Noxious Gas still deals its original even when using Poison Gas and Toxic Fumes.
