Sareena is a demon who first appeared in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero as a non-playable boss character. She was first playable in Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition for the Game Boy Advance and later in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. She is from the Netherealm and a former assassin for Quan Chi but turned against him. Her young and beautiful appearance hides her true form of a hideous demon. In the past, she required Quan Chi's magic to sustain her human form, but since recently escaping the Netherealm, she has managed to find a way to remain beautiful without him. She is now a force of good with an alliance to Sub-Zero and the new Lin Kuei, however she remains wary of her natural demonic nature.

At first glance, Sareena seems like a "play-it-safe" design with a blatantly obvious Mortal Kombat-esk look... she's a copypasta mixture of several past MK designs. Sareena's original design in MK: Tournament Edition wasn't too bad, but she still came off as a "typical" MK design. Nothing really special going on.

Then came her re-appearance in MK: Armageddon... and unfortunately they gave Sareena the "MK stripper-ninja" treatment. I swear I once saw an MK knock-off costume in a Halloween store called "slutty ninja babe" which looked exactly like Sareena's outfit... lol. In MKA, Sareena is pretty much the epitome of what's wrong with most female designs in Mortal Kombat. Stripper ninja? Check. Bad case of man-face? Check. Random awkward loincloth? Check. Totally boring personality? Check. Cut & paste been-there-done-that fighting style? You get the point. Her shamelessly over-sexualized outfit and generic fighting style is nothing more than a cliché, at this point. This is a design that was made for bored 12 year old boys in the 90's (and she debuted in the 2000's).
