Can’t have him pulling off masks.
Despite the internet’s pleas to see the hero of the hour, Scooby Doo’s Shaggy won’t be making an appearance in Mortal Kombat 11.
During NetherRealm’s Kombat Kast live stream (via Gamespot), the company revealed that Kabal will be back on the roster but also confirmed that we won’t be seeing Shaggy make the list. Community manager Tyler Lansdown’s shut down fans dreams, saying “Shaggy will not be in the game, ever, sorry, dead meme!”.
Later, the Mortal Kombat Twitter account also posted the hashtag #RIPShaggy to really use a finisher on the meme.
This comes after memes began to arise where Shaggy is portrait as an all-powerful being who only uses small percentages of his power to perform impressive fetes. Fans then began a petition to try to get the current godlike eater of Scooby snacks into Mortal Kombat 11.
The man being Mortal Kombat, Ed Boon even got in on the memes tweeting a fan image of Shaggy in the game but unfortunately, it was still not to be.
Despite much sadness from the internet, this result is probably for the best, after all adding a character as powerful as Shaggy could be destructive to the competitive meta of the game.
Female Kytinn villain D’Vorah hopefully won’t pose that issue as she was recently confirmed to make the roster.
