Fear is the Key (Scorpion vs The Slenderman) by MKUltra159 Fear is the Key (Scorpion vs The Slenderman) by MKUltra159
Hello everyone, Sorry for not uploading any updates or photos on this account, i have been busy lately and nowadays i have got back to doing a photo that i made in XNALara.

Okay i am not a big fan of Scorpion (Come at me fanboys xD) but after playing some Injustice with my friend yesterday, i see that he had download the Scorpion DLC Character. I thought the character looked really awesome, really liked his character design and hood for him, it really does suit him. I manage to find a great model of Scorpion for that game and wanted to use him in a MK Photo. Originally i wanted to do a photo or a comic strip like photo of Sub Zero fighting Scorpion's MK 2011 Model but then all of a sudden the Injustice model of Scorpion comes out of nowhere and breaks MK 2011's Scorpion in half and then having the quote "You are out of your Nine lives, prepare to meet your demise!" But i also wanted to do a Slenderman or CP related photo also.

So i thought how about i combine Scorpion and The Slenderman in a photo and it came out pretty well.

The story behind this is that Scorpion had killed one of his opponents in the Mortal Kombat Tournament but after the fight Scorpion is attack by a group of masked man(Proxies) Of cause Scorpion like the warrior and ninja he is, kills the attackers without breaking a sweat before being teleport to the Living Forest(As seen in this photo) Scorpion is a bit confused of how he teleported there without him doing so in the first place and then he sense an evil aura that is within the forest. And then this is where the photo comes in.

The title is a play on words(As well as a tribute to one of my favorite :iconironmaidenplz: songs) of how these 2 characters like to strike fear into the hearts of their victims or enemies as well as having showing no remorse of doing so. Also both of these characters do not have any sign of fear as well.

So who do you think would win? The Hellspawn Wraith from the Netherrealm, Scorpion or The entity from the fourth world, The Slenderman.

Do let me know in the comments below :D

:iconscorpionplz: belongs to Midway Games/Netherrealm Studios

:iconslendermanplz: belongs to Victor Surge/Something Awful

Tough call. On the one hand, Slenderman is basically immortal (or at least, nigh-immortal), can use his tendrils to rip Scorpion apart and has his proxies, which could easily grow from a small group of mind-controlled slaves to a small army. But on the other hand, you have Scorpion, who can't be killed because he comes back from the Netherrealm every time (as much as that pisses people off), has some control over fire and has the kunai on a rope that he uses in his signature "get over here" move (don't remember what it's called). This would eventually end, but it requires either Slenderman to somehow stop Scorpion from coming back, or Scorpion figuring out Slenderman's weakness. So, for the foreseeable future, I'd say it's a draw.

Yeah a win win situation, that is the point i was trying to get across. Neither can't win this fight and to be honest Slenderman doesn't seem like he has a weakness due to the amount of fans who are making even more powerful in ever new stories or ARGs about him and That is why i liked the original stories by the man who created The Slenderman as well as MarbleHornets since they pretty much created the fanbase but stuck to the originality of the character since he originally was meant to have Tree-like Tendrils instead of tentacle in which when i do see the tentacles sometimes it just makes me think of cartoon porn. Scorpion is pretty much an spirit in with a physical form in which like you said can't be killed and can be resurrected but of cause the body is destroyed but the spirit isn't (Like wise with Noob Saibot/Older Sub Zero). But the most realistic answer to Slenderman's weakness is that he or it would get bored of fighting Scorpion due to him killing his Proxies and as well as killing Scorpion every time they confront each other xD.

Yeah, Victor Surge's faceless man is still the greatest Slender Man. The others have turned him into an unkillable son of a bitch. But with Slender Man getting bored and giving up, I doubt it would be that easy.  I mean, Scorpion is a persistent guy when he's pissed and if Slender Man kept killing him, he'd keep coming back for more. I like to think that eventually Slender Man, bored with the constant proxies die, avenge proxies, guy who killed them comes back routine would try to make Scorpion into a proxy, if for no other reason then to give him back all that time he'd have wasted fighting Scorpion that could have been used stalking kids, killing people and setting fire to missing victim's homes.

Yeah Victor Surge is the creator of what is a good character but is badly overrated (I am a fan of The Slenderman btw). I like that it was something new and that MH paved the way of Slenderman's fandom but as i and you said, He has become an unkillable monster in which will never find a way to be defeated. Since MH doesn't have The Slenderman but The Operator (A monster/being that is similar to the Slenderman) we (if you are a fan of MH) a way for him to be defeated when MH finishes and lets face it MH is ending soon. If at the end of MH, The Operator/Slenderman has a weakness than it goes to show that this weakness could be a very unexpected or a expected one. But who knows but to be honest i must be the only one who thinks MH should establish a weakness for the character since they pretty much started this fandom and they might as well create a weakness for him. Because i think Bullets, blades, bats or explosion will not work or harm him, hell i don't think anyone has tried an explosion to see what the affect is to him. 

It is likely for Scorpion in his physical form to be a puppet to The Slenderman due to how Quan Chi manipulated him into killing Sub Zero in the new MK (Even though i find that part of the game very inaccurate since Quan Chi manipulated Scorpion in MK4 by saying Younger Sub Zero was the one who killed his family and ordered the Lin Kuei to kill his entire clan while the Older Sub Zero/Noob Saibot was killed by Scorpion because he killed Scorpion in the first place and wanted revenge for doing so) but it would warn off very quickly since he could see through Slenderman's manipulation and become enraged and lets face it a Normal Scorpion is a deadly Scorpion but a Angry Scorpion is a savage Scorpion.

All too true. And no, I haven't actually watched MH. I prefer to waste my YouTube with funnies and music. Probably will one of these days. But going back to Scorpion after manipulation, I can see him getting pissed after breaking the Slender Man's control, but with how it is now, that too is unlikely. Let's just pretend for a minute that Slender Man wasn't as unkillable as he is now. If Slender Man tried to take control, it would most likely be an attempt at the Kate takeover from Slender: The Arrival, where he sent her insane to break her and turn her into a proxy. And let's face it, that ain't happening with Scorpion. If he's not already insane, he's not going to change that easily, even with someone as universally feared as Slender Man. Although, assuming Slender Man COULD somehow break Scorpion, he wouldn't break the faceless one's control without someone killing him. After death, however, he'd be like you said, pissed off and all the more dangerous.

I would thought Scorpion is already insane but when you think about it The Slenderman never used to make people go insane in his original story since The Slenderman was more of a imaginary friend and that his victims originally were children, so all this making people go insane was mainly from the influence of MarbleHornets and other ARGs on youtube since originally he would manipulate people into thinking he is a friend and not an enemy but back to Scorpion, he would have a hard time trying to manipulate Scorpion since he is  a entity much like The Slenderman.

Yes, he would be the shit out of Slender. It's a game after all. But what about the Slender Man? That's the question.
