Ed Boon of NetherRealm Studios has received countless requests to place characters in the Mortal Kombat series. When Mileena was excluded from Mortal Kombat 11’s base list, fans quickly let Boon and the rest of the NRS know of their disappointment over the absence of Kitana’s clone.
Although the request for Mileena is one of the most sensible, not every request should be taken seriously. During an interview on the FestiGame Twitch channel, Ed Boon reveals the strangest request he has ever received. Yes, it’s even weirder than the idea of putting (Ultra Instinct) Shaggy in Mortal Kombat 11.
“What was the strangest request from fans to add Mortal Kombat?” asks Ed Boon’s interviewer.
“I think it would be if they asked, ‘Why don’t you put Ed Boon in the game as a fighter?’ ‘, Boon said. ‘I never understood why they would ask that. This is such a strange question. ‘
Unfortunately for fans who might want to see Ed Boon face Scorpion and Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat, this is not a very likely scenario, according to Boon.
“And I don’t think it’s ever going to happen either,” Boon continued. “I do not want people to come up with ways to cut off my head.”

At this point, the interviewer said it might be a good idea for Mortal Kombat’s 30th anniversary. Boon, with a smile, apparently completely disagreed with this idea.
“Don’t expect it,” Ed Boon concludes.
It seems that fans will just have to make do with the fact that Noob Saibot is a tribute to the names of co-creators of Mortal Kombat, Ed Boon and John Tobias.
