Tremor is a brown garbed ninja and a member of the Black Dragon clan who first appeared in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces. He made his first, fully playable appearance as a DLC character in Mortal Kombat X.
In his original appearance in Special Forces and carried over to his playable missions in the Vita port of Mortal Kombat (2011), Tremor wears the typical ninja style garb and mask identical to the costumes worn by Scorpion and Sub-Zero in the Mortal Kombat 3 era, only brown in coloration.
Powers and abilities
Extremely muscular, Tremor is able to create earthquakes in the ground by punching it, similar to Jax. He also has the ability to shoot fireballs and launch stone missiles that petrify an enemy for a few seconds. He has a stance similar to Smoke, fights like Jax, and his outro is an exact copy of Noob Saibot's.

- Tremor's playable appearance in the additional Challenge Tower in Mortal Kombat (2011) for the Playstation Vita marks his debut in a fighting Mortal Kombat game, albeit in a limited way.

- John Tobias discussed Tremor's creation in an interview, commenting that "I do remember having big plans for Tremor, but when I conceived him, he wasn't a member of the Black Dragon. He was a Lin Kuei hired as muscle by a mad man who was trying to open a gateway between Earth and Outworld." [Source]
