Mortal Kombat Art Tribute: Nightwolf from Mortal Kombat 3/Trilogy
Nightwolf is one of the new characters in Mortal Kombat 3. He is a proud native-american who also has the old Shaman knowledge and is able to use it against his enemies and to defend his people. The sacred lands of his tribe becomes a vital threat to Shao Kahn‘s plans.
Nightwolf fights with a mix of typical native-american weapons like bow & arrows and hatchet related moves and magical specials like his shield against projectiles or the shoulder tackle which works very similar to Shao Kahn’s powerful shoulder ram.
He had a quite funny ending which seems to be meant as a sign of respect to the native-americans by the Mortal Kombat developers. Reclaiming the lost lands? Reigning as the great leaders of earth? This sounds almost cynical.
Nightwolf returned around ten years later in Mortal Kombat Deception he was drawn in his classic Mortal Kombat 3 design by Emiliano Sanna
