Skarlet was originally thought to be a secret character in Mortal Kombat 2, though this was later proven to be a coding glitch from Kitana, much like Ermac had been a color glitch from Scorpion.

Shao Kahn has many warriors under his command, but his trust lies solely in the fighters of his own creation. Warrior blood gathered from countless battlefields, fused with sorcery, produced his most effective enforcer yet: Skarlet. An expert tracker, she preys on those deemed enemies of the empire.

During kombat, Skarlet gains strength from her opponent's blood, absorbing it through her skin. Shao Kahn has a new mission for this formidable kombatant: Discover Quan Chi's true intentions and kill him if he plots betrayal of the emperor.

Why am I not surprised they added yet another ninja-girl in a stripper outfit to MK9? Anyway, she's one... uhh... bloody girl. (Insert menstrual cycle joke here). Skarlet's moveset and general theme is somewhat interesting, but overall her animations & moves are on the ugly side of things, in my opinion.

As the sole "new" character of MK9, she's not exactly a let down, but she definitely leaves much to be desired. On the flipside, it's pretty clever that the MK designers created this character from that old school MK2 glitch. ;)
