The Last of the Saurian Race...

Reptile, also known as Syzoth, is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise. Created for Midway Games by John Tobias and Ed Boon, Reptile debuted in Mortal Kombat as a hidden boss and appeared in subsequent titles as a playable character, also appearing in the merchandise and other media related to the series. Beginning with Mortal Kombat 4, Reptile has been voiced by series' sound engineer Dan Forden. Reptile is a Saurian, 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 game, he had yet to be rewarded for his efforts. Critical reception to the character has been positive, several publications commenting on his evolution since his debut as hidden character.

In Fiction Wrestling, Reptile is often credited as one of the hardest working wrestlers of all time, having never once questioned the management of his company and loyally followed whatever storyline or matches they put him on. Unfortunately, Reptile has yet to be rewarded for his efforts, but he is not one without success. Reptile has won numerous championships and awards over his long career, including the UWE Omega Championship. One of the most popular UWE wrestlers in history and truly an underrated talent—well liked among many.

Personal LifeEdit

In WrestlingEdit

Reptile over the years has generally wrestled a brawler/submission style. Nothing fancy, just straight up brutal strikes and devastating throws along with agonizing submission holds. Added to that, Reptile is extremely comfy in a No DQ setting, credited as one of the greatest hardcore wrestlers in UWE History, The Raptor knows how to use weapons in thousands of different ways and with his overall "never-say-die" attitude, Reptile is always a challenge to anybody he steps into the ring with.
