Another of Ultratech's miraculously realized concepts: a crossbreed of human and reptilian DNA, resulting in a creature that combines formidable intelligence with sheer brute strength. Nurtured from the egg by a dedicated Ultratech professor and her team, the beast nicknamed 'Riptor' by others has barely reached 4 years of age before it first demonstrates its full savage power in a human kill. Riptor is confused and often finds itself torn between human reasoning and predatory instincts, resorting to attack when it fails to understand the situation, as ever more people find out the hard way. The Killer Instinct tournament serves to test its abilities as a killing machine. Riptor is 4 years old at the time of the first Killer Instinct.

Although he appears to just be some silly dinosaur that found his way into a fighting game, Riptor's fighting style was actually pretty well done. As a fighting game character, he definitely came across as original at the time of his debut. For an overgrown lizard, he actually decent charisma and personality as well... no doubt his cool voice attributed to that. I was sad to see him absent from KI2.
