A sequel to my first PMV; I know that some have already done this, but so far, I haven't seen any use this version of the theme.
If you’re confused as to why I choose (MLP Character) as (MK Character):
---The series of flashing images at the beginning---
I threw in as many characters as I could (while trying to avoid most of this PMV's main cast). In retrospect, this could have been the perfect chance to throw in that one random image from Slice of Life, but I went with Crackle the Dragon...
---AJ, Fluttershy, Twi, RD, Pinkie, & Rarity as Kano, Liu Kang, Raiden, Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, & Sonya---
When making the first PMV, I noticed that it was a good chance to use just the Mane 6. Most filled the slots as desired (Twi, RD, Rare), some were kinda filler (AJ, Shy), and Pinkie fills both Sub/Scorpion as the ninjas were originally just a pallet swap of each other, thus I thought using both normal Pinkie and Pinkamena would be cleaver.
---Fluttershy as Liu Kang---
Ported from the first PMV
---Rarity as Sonya---
Again, ported from the first PMV
---Iron Will as Jaks---
Originally was going to be Bulk Biceps (AJ was Kano and Big Mac seemed too obvious), but as I was making this, I got into the need to make this PMV 'more serious' and 'expand the species pool'. Plus he and Bulk got the arms for this!
---Sunset Shimmer as Kitana---
Originally was going to be Celestia, but as Kitana/Jade were a pallet swap much like Sub/Scorpion, I though I would keep the nature of that intact and used Sunset (her 'pallet swap' is described next). Plus, adding her gave me the opportunity to sneak in some EqG ;) .
---Starlight Glimmer as Jade---
Originally was going to be Luna, but with Sunset as Kitana, I thought the perfect pallet swap would be 'reverse Sunset'.
---Maud Pie as Sub-Zero---
According to the original story of Mortal Kombat, there were two Sub-Zeros: (one was the original, then later came his brother Bi-Han, or something like that). As they are related, I thought it would be a good chance to use a Pie sister. Maud ultimately won due to her personality and she had more action scenes.
---Pinkie Pie as Scorpion---
Ported from the first PMV
---Princess Ember as Cyrax---
I was stumped at this point. There didn't seem to be many who could fill in here as Cyrax was a robot. I was going to put Discord here, but then came Ember because of the whole 'expand the species pool' thing. Plus that armor helps the most out of any other potential entries.
---King Sombra as Smoke---
Sombra uses a smoke-like body. Plus, adding him, and the following two makes this video 'STRONGER' ;) .
---Queen Crysalis as Sheeva---
Both are freaky. Again, with her and the other two, the PMV is 'STRONGER'.
---Lord Tirek as Motaro---
Both are Centaurs. Again, with him and the previous two, the PMV is 'STRONGER' (did you get the reference yet?).
---Grogar as Shao Kahn?---
I added this guy from Gen1 MLP for LOLs. Was thinking about using Dragon Lord Torch though... I also wanted to add a 'fatality scene' with Gen3 Scootaloo, but the ideas was scrapped...
