Patch Notes

Originally working as one of Shang Tsung’s bodyguards and later under Shao Kahn’s command, and finally as a general to Shinnok, Reptile became a respectable figure among the Outworld forces. He had also uncovered a plot by Shang Stung and Quan Chi to kill Shao Kahn, but it was too late to inform the emperor of Outworld about his servant’s betrayal, as the plan was already in motion. The reptile would wander the Outworld before eventually coming to serve Nitara in her conquest of Earthrealm.

Prior to Liu Kang’s reset, he remained a servant to Outworld leaders, including Kotal Kahn, who seemed to appreciate Reptile’s qualities as a master of stealth and camouflage and thus assigned him to be one of his most loyal spies and bodyguards. During Mileena’s uprising, Reptile had the opportunity to turn against Kotal but chose to stay by his side.

In the new timeline, his home of Zeterran still stands, though he is now an outcast because of his ability to shape-shift into a human form on top of his camouflage ability. Rejected by his peers, Reptile, also known as Syzoth, now seeks to build a new outside of Zeterran.


As an outcast, Syzoth feels he must assert his value to his people while also creating his own path. Years of social struggles have left him somewhat shut to others, limiting himself to only a few acquaintances and not letting many see his true natural form as opposed to his human figure.


Reptile uses a combination of his two forms to fight. Alongside his shape-shifting, he also has access to toxic-like attacks, 


As a Zaterran, Reptile is not supposed to have a human shape, yet he dawns similar attire to that of other ninjas in this shape, including a light green face covering, long armored gloves, and various tribal tattoos, including one across his face.
