Who's the winner?

Goro

Goro became Grand Champion of the Mortal Kombat tournament after defeating the Great Kung Lao. For 500 years, he remained undefeated and helped Shang Tsung grow ever closer to achieving Shao Kahn's goal of domination over Earthrealm. In his 10th title defense, however, he faced Liu Kang. Making use of Goro's overconfidence after years of being the undefeated warrior, Liu Kang was able to secure victory. Goro disappeared during the tournament's aftermath, and he was believed to be dead. It is theorized that he actually retreated back to his kingdom during this time.










        Kintaro


Kintaro was introduced as a replacement for the great Shokan deputy Goro, and was everything Goro was, including being of the Shokan race, but not of the same family. Being the supreme commander of Outworld's armed forces, he is senior warrior only to Shao Kahn himself. He is  slightly taller than Goro and stands nearly 8' 5" tall. He has clearly defined feline aspects, with tiger stripes on his back (more recently, claws and cat-like digitigrade feet in his Armageddon makeover as well), and has the ability to spit fireballs from great distances.In Mortal Kombat II, after hearing of Goro's death at the hands of Liu Kang, Kintaro vowed to avenge his comrade and crush Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat. Kintaro tried to prove his loyalty to Shao Kahn when he traveled to Earthrealm with a Tarkatan horde to defeat Johnny Cage. Although the attack failed due to the intervention of other Earthrealm warriors, Kintaro continued to serve Shao Kahn. After Shang Tsung was defeated again by Liu Kang, Kintaro then challenged Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat. Kintaro fought well, but lost.

Kintaro for the win... Shao Kahn brought Kintaro to the MK Tournaments after Goro failed... Kintaro is a bigger dawg in the park than Goro

Kintaro is bigger/stronger physically, but Goro's the better fighter. I'd put my mony on G!

Are the MK comics canon? I think I read somewhere that the outcome of Goro vs Kintaro was based off of fan votes...

Hm...that was stupid XD 
 
In the MK2 booklet it hinted at everything that Kintaro was everything Goro was and then some. To put simply, superior.

Those scans are PIS, Kintaro is stronger and faster than Goro. Well known fact.

No. But I have the MK2 booklet and it hints at Kintaro being superior to Goro in every way. It would make sense for Shao Kahn to bring in someone superior to someone who got defeated, not an inferior.

 Personally I think Kintaro is not inferior to Goro, I have read he could be slightly superior than Goro.  He is one of my favorite character and I kow how strong, agility, fast he is, but  I just posted here the scans is to refer me and demonstrate he was defeated just once by Goro in MK comics, I not to denigrate him.

@kenshiroo: well the scans on page 1 settle it

Kintaro might be tougher to beat in the game, but in the story, Goro whoops his ass

The only canon comics are the ones created by John Tobias. Kenshiro posted scans from the Malibu comic  -- non-canon and irrelevant!!

@Shuma-Gorath: perhaps, but I've also read on the MK wikia that Goro belong to the dragon caste, which is superior to the tiger cast to which Kintaro belongs

Merely a reference to lineage. Goro is royalty whereas Kintaro is not of royal Shokan blood, but part of the tiger race known for savagery. Plus, there's always this.
