Mortal Kombat X - Quan Chi Breakdown

Quan Chi plays a big role in the story of Mortal Kombat X, but for now, we'll focus on his fighting style. Like every other character in Mortal Kombat X, Quan Chi has three fighting variants. While each variant has a unique set of attacks, all three share Quan Chi's trademark special moves, such as his Trance. Quan Chi's fighting variants, meanwhile, are Sorcerer, Warlock and Summoner.

The Sorcerer variant gives Quan Chi access to spells that target specific areas in the stage. What this means is that Quan Chi will have special moves that hit close to him, in the middle of the screen and on the far side of the screen. You'll need to anticipate where your opponent will be when using these attacks, but in the right hands, they can lead to dangerous frame traps and combos. This fighting variant also gives Quan Chi the ability to increase the power of his attacks, or weaken his opponent's attacks. One spell even shows off Quan Chi's armor ability, absorbing an opponent's attack without interrupting Quan Chi's attack.

If you choose the Summoner fighting variant, Quan Chi can call forth a NetherRealm Bat to aid him in combat. The demonic minion flies above Quan Chi's head and attacks the opposing character during combos or as a standalone attack. Every time you use the NetherRealm Bat, it disappears and must be summoned again. The summon special move is quick enough to use as long as you're not right next to an opponent, but many of Quan Chi's combos end with enough push back to give you plenty of time to summon the demonic minion again.
