In 2019, Mortal Kombat's community manager shut down the idea of cartoon character Shaggy from Scooby-Doo being added to Mortal Kombat 11 as a guest fighter - calling it a "dead meme" and noting how there was no chance of it happening.
Now, in a weird turn of events, "Ultra Instinct Shaggy" - a meme that originated from the Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur movie - has now appeared in the new animated film, Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms.
While it is just a cameo at the start of the film's Warner Bros. opening, it's once again got Shaggy supporters talking about the possibility of the cartoon character appearing in the violent and bloody fighting series in the future. Mortal Kombat's co-creator Ed Boon also joked about Shaggy being "konfirmed"...
If Shaggy does officially appear in the Mortal Kombat video game series in the future, it certainly won't be in Mortal Kombat 11. NetherRealm has now ended its DLC support for the game to focus on its "next project".
Do you think we could one day see Shaggy from Scooby-Doo in a Mortal Kombat game? Leave your own thoughts down below.
I really hope they add Shaggy to the roster, or at least in the next MK game
If they put Shaggy in Mortal Kombat his finishing move should be pulling off their face as a mask, only their is no mask and he rips their face off leaving a bloody skull.
How Shaggy would play like in a Mortal Kombat like game.
UI Shaggy is real, Its finally real, I have waited for this momment all my life, Finally!
@Specter_of-the_OLED @Nin10dood @ShadowWeaver421 I forth this, Add Saggy to MK! 🤟
Once, a thunder struck Shaggy.
The thunder was electrocuted to death.
Honestly, this is a good way to appease the crowd that's been asking for it.
It's juuuuust enough effort to give them validation, without having to devote too much time to what's really more of a joke with a [respectable] cult following.
Even though UI shaggy has been milked to the point where I think you are unfunny for using it...
In an official WB film, I'll let it slide. That's awesome
@Specter_of-the_OLED only one way to find out!! Put him in……Mortal Kombat!!
What about….. Toon Kombat….. kinda like that smash bros Nickelodeon game….. cartoon only roster mortal kombat game. Bugs bunny splitting shaggy in half with a carrot sword. Tasmanian devil just spinning and exploding the opponent. Gots potential.
@Specter_of-the_OLED this made me laugh so much
Meme references like this are cool IMO - as long as they're relevant to the IP, don't get overused, and aren't used to justify a bad product I see it more as a celebration of fandom than "trying to be hip".
Ultra Instinct Shaggy would make more sense in Dragon Ball Fighterz
@Specter_of-the_OLED he’d probably bring armageddon by using only a measly 1.2% of his power. Opponents’ bodies would blow up, being too afraid to even conceptualize what fatality would await them when fighting Shaggy
I think it's time we start a "Mortal Kombat 1-2-3 Kompilation" kampaign for the Switch.
What do you say NintendoLife?
"Like Get Over here Man" The fact they had Him say that is just 👌
Hahaha this is absolutely brilliant. I love it.
Now see Sakurai do something similar with Goku and Smash.
Zoinks Scoob! I've like totally been confirmed!
I would definitely play a new Mortal Kombat game if it was fully animated like that.
was up with Scorpions eyebrows?
I shouldn't be surprised a meme became sorta canon. Remember when they added Big Chungus to that Looney Tunes mobile game?
