Game version of Baraka was cheap and I threw my controller every time he beat me with his repeated kneeling-blade slashing move. I hate Baraka. Comic book wise, Baraka was jobber. Predator takes the victory.

You might want to take away cloaking.

And how do you use video game feats? Does anyone have scans from the comics?

As of now I believe Predator would win.

Only bias when he beats me with that cheap ass move. That's when I bring in Skarlet, and even then... gah. I go cheap on him and it's like the game increases its difficulty setting just to be cheaper and harder. Pisses me off so much.

@IZZR: Still going to look for Baraka scans but here are some of th Predators fighting skills, speed and strength feats.

Predators still has fighting skill. Seeing how Baraka fights in Mortal Komat.

And also strength and speed.

Ran after a subway train and killed every one one it.

Predator

Those Mortal Kombat comics are non-canon, and Baraka is one of biggest jobbers in the MK Universe. He couldn't even beat Jax who got ko'ed by two no-named Tarkatans.

Based on which game? Because isn't that a published by Malibu and most of their comics are suppose to be What-If stories.

#33 Posted by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

I think this could go either way honestly.

-Normally I'd say could go either way but Baraka gets beaten by people less powerful then Predator's...like Jade for example.

-In the movies we've seen mere humans outsmart and defeat Predators.

-Cage beat Baraka but I do believe Cage is a far better fighter then Baraka is.

-Really depends I think.

-No weapons, just naked no outside weapons. Baraka has the edge with his blades, but I'm sure Predator could hold his own via H2H skill and is probably stronger then Baraka.

-With weapons, Predator will kill Baraka easily.

Baraka is fully capable of physically outmatching Liu Kang and other very strong MK fighters who are strong enough to uppercut an 800lb Goro 20 ft into the air and through a solid rock floor. Predator is severely outmatched physically in every way. Brains however...lol A lot of people do not really realize that the MK guys are all bullet proof, fire proof and grenade and small missiles proof. They JAB and juggle a few hundred POUNDS...with JABS...Predator times 10 wishes he can do that.

I could see Baraka walking straight at Predator, grabbing him and tearing off all of its limbs and then saying something funny like " Baraka no like Lizard People. Me had fight with other lizard man in green and with mask on, lizard man spit acid at Baraka but that no stop me. After that day, Baraka make sure all Lizard people die slow."

Sorry, but Baraka was always awesome.

LMAO predator would just underestimate Baraka so would end up getting caked. And no doubt!! Baraka is the man!!! Just watch his skills.

@IZZR: LMAO! That pic is to much.

- Physically Baraka and Pred are equal if not Baraka is stronger and faster.

- Baraka is also more durable than Pred is think.

- With weapons, Pred outmatches him at range but up close Baraka has base advantage.

- Pred is an uber-trained hunter though, while Baraka is mainly characterized as a brute and a berserker.

With the way the OP set this up, Baraka has a huge advantage. Random encounter (no intel), no ranged weapons or camo, blood-lusted; berserker Baraka will just ignore all wounds and slice right through Predator.

@onilordasmodeus:

Baraka is not stronger than a Yautja, I will give him credit and say they may be about the same on speed.

What are you basing the idea of Baraka being more durable? A Yautja took a few shots from an M4, 8 slugs from a 12 gauge, had its arm cut off at the elbow, knocked through a wall and still kept fighting.

With the size difference in the competitors the reach is a lot closer than people think but yes Baraka has a small reach advantage.

Baraka has never shown the skill level needed to take a pissed off bloodlusted Yautja, also for those who have read the comics/books, the Yautja have an extra gland that produces this type of super adrenaline that is why when they are younger they are more brash and reckless but when they get older and more in control they get very scary. The last thing anyone should want to deal with is a bloodlusted yautja, especially if they are Blooded or higher rank, because they will not be so mindless when they are.

#47 Edited by onilordasmodeus (2545 posts) - - Show Bio
@MisterWhisper:

After looking at a Yautja wiki, I'll conceed that a Tarkatan probably isn't stronger than a Pred; I'd say they were equal. But Baraka has shown that he could lift a man on judt one of his blades, as well as jump a great distance and throw a person a great distance as well.

Summerized from the wiki, the Yautja are generally stronger than a human, and their bones are denser. From your post I can infer that they also have a high threshhold for pain. Baraka has enhanced durablitity and a slight healing factor, being that he is half demon. Having built-in metal blades also suggests that at least his forearm bones have a density consistant with metal.

With a weapon, I'd say their reach could be equal given that the Pred has the right weapon, but Baraka has the advantage of being able to sheath and unsheath his blades with extreme quickness in conjunction with being a very good h2h fighter. If Baraka grabs the guy, or if the guy grabs him, he could unsheath at point blank range and impale him. He cannot be disarm in the traditional sense, not to mention baraka bites too. Baraka is a walking armory as they say.

A slightly "blood-lusted" Baraka took Goro in the comic and also beat Jax. Baraka also beat Sonya in the original timeline, and according to his MK9 bio took out an armed rebel faction alone prior to MK1. Baraka is also THE alpha male of the entire Tarkatan horde (thousands of warriors), structured on nothing but fighting and killing, and he is their undisputed leader. He lead the charge when the Horde fought Earth's military too.

A blood-lusted Yautja is likely a semi-unstoppable force for any single fighter, but a berserker Tarkatan, Baraka, wouldn't care about pain or bodily harm (healing factor) and his body would be working a as close to 100% as one could get. You are probably right when you say a higher ranked Pred would/could win, I'd say 50/50 maybe, but anything less would be dead. In that state I don't think their are many street level or meta-human characters who can beat him.
#48 Posted by MisterWhisper (1914 posts) - - Show Bio

@onilordasmodeus: The problem with Baraka is that on paper he should be a beast to deal with: half demon, raised in a society that kills daily and lives for battle, leader of his people and even more things like that but because he is not one of the main stars he does not get the feats he needs to back up many of the said traits.

Game mechanics are also REALLY bad to use as feats because lets face it they have to make a video game look good, not show them as being skilled and brutal. I think the comics are a much better representation of the characters but even that he is still a little light on feats.

However, there have been 100's of comics with Predator/Yautja, and at current count I am thinking like 8 -10 novels (I have all the novels but have a bad memory on how many their are.) There are MANY more feats to use for them. Also it is hard to use a specific Yautja without using some Elder that would make this very unbalanced (Broken Tusk or Smiley).

P.S. Have they ever mentioned how old Baraka is, or how long his race lives?

Hell NO! You have no idea what your talking about, do you honestly believe that Baraka is strong enough to punch a truck through air, durable enough to survive explosive tipped rounds, multiple blasts in abdomen by a shotgun, and getting struck by lighting twice unfazed, running fast enough to caught a car accelerating at very high speeds, side-stepping automatic gunfire, and moving in blurs?
