The fighting game Mortal Kombat 1 developed by NetherRealm Studios is currently accessible to those who made an additional payment. Since its launch, enthusiasts have responded to various aspects within the game, including Megan Fox’s portrayal of Nitara.

Devotees of the series were swift to observe how Fox’s performance appeared lackluster in comparison to the remaining cast members. If you search for “Megan Fox Mortal Kombat” on X (previously known as Twitter), you will come across numerous tweets where fans express their opinion on her portrayal. One user commented, “Megan Fox’s performance in Mortal Kombat 1… is certainly something, isn’t it?” Another user seemed more direct, stating, “If I had one critique of the game though, it would be Megan Fox. Her portrayal of Nitara is extremely poor. Every word she utters lacks emotion.”

There is no shortage of posts expressing a similar viewpoint. While Fox has faced criticism for her performance in elements such as cutscenes and fight introductions, not all of Nitara’s voice lines have been problematic. Cristina Vee Valenzuela, widely recognized as the voice behind Miraculous Ladybug, recently confirmed on Twitter that she had provided the voice for all of Nitara’s battle shouts.

It is also worth noting that this is not the first time NetherRealm Studios has enlisted celebrities to voice characters in their games. In 2019, WWE wrestler Ronda Rousey voiced Sonya Blade in Mortal Kombat 11, and fans had similar grievances about her performance. Additionally, the studio managed to secure Jean-Claude Van Damme to voice himself in MK 1 as a skin for Johnny Cage.
