Finish him! We all know those famous words, and if there’s one fighter that you don’t have to say that to twice, it’s Mortal Kombat’s Mileena, one of the daughters of Shao Khan (and Kitana’s clone). It’s fair to say that she has some bite to her. One of her most iconic fatalities sees her inhale her opponent and spit out their bones, which should tell you all you need to know. But in case you don’t mind the possibility of ‘curiosity killed the cat’ coming true, we’re here to tell you who she is, dive into her personality, and look at her fatalities.
Though if you really do think you can take her in battle, you should look at our Mortal Kombat 1 kameo fighters, Mortal Kombat chraracters, Mortal Kombat Sonya, Mortal Kombat Sub Zero, and Mortal Kombat Scorpion guides to see if these fighters can help. If not, well, it’s been nice knowing you and all that.
Anyway, onto everything you need to know about Mortal Kombat’s Mileena.
Who is Mortal Kombat’s Mileena?
Mileena is one of the most prominent fighters in the series, so much so that her absence as an initial character in Mortal Kombat 11 came as a bit of a shock to fans. Fortunately, she’s now available as a DLC fighter. Though, to be fair, she’s kind of dead in the current storyline of this reality, so we can forgive her not being around to begin with. Yes, in the current storyline, she met her demise in Mortal Kombat X at the hands of D’Vorah – a grotesque kiss of death, to say the least.
However, we’re getting ahead of ourselves. You likely want to know about her origins before her demise. Mileena is the clone of Kitana, though Shao Khan couldn’t help but spice things up a little, as Mileena is a mix of Kitana’s DNA and that of a Tarkatan, which is the reason she gives her dentist nightmares.
For all intents and purposes, she’s an antagonist in this universe and there’s certainly no love lost between herself and her ‘sister.’ Shao Khan creates her to replace Kitana, who is actually a good person and a fair princess that doesn’t want Outworld to succeed in dominating Earthrealm, though Mileena is keen to carry on her father’s legacy, both before and after he dies.
Mortal Kombat Mileena’s personality
Mileena is vicious, malicious, and has no problem mowing down (chomping down?) anyone who dares to get in her way. In a nutshell, she’s evil incarnate with a superiority complex. A good example of how sinister Mileena is comes from her hatred of Kitana. Not only does she want to execute her genetic twin, but she also wants Kitana to suffer first.

Admittedly, Mileena does look like she belongs in a horror game, she certainly gives the Dead by Daylight killers, Dead by Daylight characters, Poppy Playtime characters, and FNAF characters a run for their money.
