Nintendo hasn’t asked for Mortal Kombat characters to appear in Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros. has brought in characters from all sorts of legendary franchises – including fighting games like Street Fighter, Tekken, and Fatal Fury – but Mortal Kombat has been left out of the mix. However, that’s not due to a lack of interest from its developers.
Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon, speaking with Axios, recently mentioned that Nintendo hasn’t asked for a Mortal Kombat character to appear in Smash Bros. But if Boon had his way, Scorpion would be his top choice to join the roster. If Nintendo asked for two characters, Sub-Zero would be next. Boon said “it’s cool to see a spear pull somebody,” which is why he’d go with Scorpion above anyone else.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate wrapped up its production on DLC fighters with Sora from Kingdom Hearts in October 2021. Piranha Plant, Joker, Hero, Banjo & Kazooie, Terry, Byleth, Min Min, Steve / Alex, Sephiroth, Pyra / Mythra, and Kazuya made up the rest of the extra characters.
