Megan Fox’s infamously bad performance as Nitara has Mortal Kombat fans looking back at Ronda Rousey.
In the wake of the recent Mortal Kombat 1 release, the spotlight has shifted from Megan Fox’s much-maligned portrayal of Nitara to a retrospective examination of Ronda Rousey’s widely criticized performance as Sonya Blade in Mortal Kombat 11.
Since the launch of Mortal Kombat 1 a few weeks ago, fans have been unable to resist discussing and mercilessly mocking Megan Fox’s voice acting as Nitara. Despite her initial enthusiasm in Nitara’s reveal trailer, Fox’s final in-game performance has been described as wooden, devoid of emotion, and frankly, cringe-inducing by some fans, who even go as far as dubbing her the “least suitable” choice for the character.
While the Nitara debacle has generated considerable debate, it’s not the first time such criticisms have arisen within the Mortal Kombat community. In fact, many players have argued that Megan Fox’s performance in Mortal Kombat 1 is somehow inferior to Ronda Rousey’s infamous voice work for Sonya Blade in Mortal Kombat 11.
