Other not-important characters include the vampiress Nitara, Orderrealm rebel Darrius and the two Black Dragon Clan recruits Kabal finds, Kobra and Kira.
But in truth, "ERMAC" was simply short for an "error macro." This hidden character everyone went wild over did not exist and was only a glitch in the game's code. The devs even denied Ermac's existence in Mortal Kombat 2 with a jumbled message that, when properly spelled, read "Ermac does not exist."
But thanks to the developer’s fondness of their audience’s ideas, Ermac was made into a real character in the updated version of Mortal Kombat 3 as a legion of souls in human form enslaved by Shao Kahn. After Kahn’s defeat, Ermac then taught Kenshi telekinesis and helped fight Onaga. In Mortal Kombat 9, they (everyone refers to it as the many souls that it is) get much more screentime.
Keep posted for part 3, where I’ll finish up with the game’s music, combat, my personal fighter of choice and the best the series has to offer. Let’s see how long it takes to write that one.
