Without question, Liu Kang is one of Mortal Kombat's most iconic characters, and he is certainly a formidable fighter in Mortal Kombat 11. Indeed, Kang's combat prowess has made him one of the most-used characters in MK11, and many fans are thus intimately familiar with the fighter's representation in NetherRealm Studios' newest fighting game. However, one Mortal Kombat 11 player has recently discovered a strange and funny detail about Liu Kang the has likely gone unnoticed by most fans.


Specifically, Reddit user Top-tier-mokocchi has taken to the Mortal Kombat subreddit with an hilarious proclamation: "Liu Kang's butt gets bigger when he takes his jacket off." The Redditor backs up this bold claim with video evidence, showing the Mortal Kombat 11 character from multiple angles while quickly switching between the jacketless Young Justice skin and the jacketed Art of Wu Shu skin. The effect on Kang's derriere is quite clear, and the footage should remove any doubt that players have about Top-tier-mokocchi's statements.




As many fans are likely to expect, some of the responses to the Redditor's assertions achieve a level of delightfully low-brow humor that is on par with the original post itself. For instance, certain players ponder if the effect has any impact on Kang's hitbox, or "buttbox," and others suggest that this may be the reason that his occasional lover Kitana prefers him shirtless. While it would be remiss to poke such fun to Kang's face directly, lest a fan is looking to be on the receiving end of a Mortal Kombat 11 Fatality, everything is fair game on the internet.





Another question that is sure to emerge from this important discovery is whether any other character's skins have a similarly pronounced effect on their physique. With so many Mortal Kombat 11 skins available for every fighter on the roster, it is possible that such an anomaly is taking place with another character, and it is now up to dedicated individuals to hunt them down.


Furthermore, the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat League is continually adding new skins for players to earn. Fans should thus not be disheartened if they are currently unable to alter the posterior of their favorite MK11 fighters, as there is always a chance that it will be possible sometime in the future.


Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version also in development.
