|Scorpion - 72.89%|
In our first matchup featuring two fighting game characters, Scorpion won as expected. The prediction percentage and odds favored Scorpion to win with ease, and win with ease he did. The intriguing thing, however, is one of the site's earliest poll results:
Poll #16 (from 1999)
Which fighting series do you love the most?
Mortal Kombat 7.53% 411
Tekken 20.49% 1119
TOTAL VOTES 5461
Of course, old polls with 5500 total votes have to be taken with a grain of salt; still, one would assume that Mishima would not have simply rolled over and died the way he did. Either Tekken has not aged well, Mortal Kombat has aged well, or Scorpion was simply much stronger than originally thought. Or maybe it was all three.
