Mortal Kombat: Conquest - Reptile (Mortal Kombat) - Netflix
Reptile is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created for Midway Games by Ed Boon and John Tobias. He debuted in Mortal Kombat as a hidden opponent and appeared in subsequent titles as a playable character, also appearing in the merchandise and other media related to the series. Reptile is a Raptor, a nearly-extinct bipedal humanoid race of reptilian creatures and loyally serves the series' recurring villain Shao Kahn in hope that his race will be revived. Reptile has been featured in almost every title in the series under the same pretenses, and until the 2011 reboot, he had yet to be rewarded for his efforts. Critical reception to the character has been positive, with many print and online publications commenting on his evolution since his debut as a hidden character.

The character has been well received by critics. GameSpot said that Reptile gives the series “an air of mystery” due to the circumstances behind his first appearance, while CraveOnline listed the battle against him in Mortal Kombat as the fourth greatest event in video gaming. UGO.com ranked him eleventh in their list of top Mortal Kombat characters, stating that his exclusivity as a hidden character in the original game made him an “arcade legend” and set the tone for secrets in future titles in the series, and adding, “future games would feature even more hidden enemies and complicated ways of accessing them, but the first was still the best.” He was also fifth in Game Revolution's list of top “old school” Mortal Kombat characters", praised for his introduction in Mortal Kombat and his changes in the sequel. IGN listed him as a character they would like to see as downloadable content for Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, noting “It's just not (a Mortal Kombat) game without a bevy of palette-swapped ninjas...and our vote goes to Reptile,” adding that while the character would be a “pain in the ass to fight sometimes”, his inclusion would be “a blessing to have on your side.” He was also featured in the 2008 MSN article about the ten greatest Easter eggs in gaming. In 2010 UGO, included him on the list of the 25 coolest hidden characters in video gaming. ScrewAttack placed Reptile at ninth place on their list of top ten Mortal Kombat characters, commenting that anyone who got to fight him in the original Mortal Kombat became a local legend and getting to play as him and turn invisible in Mortal Kombat II was “icing on the cake”. In UGO Networks' 2012 list of the top Mortal Kombat characters, Reptile placed as sixth, stating that he is the best hidden character in the series. Cheat Code Central included him in the 2012 list of top ten hidden characters in fighting games at number two.
