Mortal Kombat X's little old lady has her revenge

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

The little old lady who inhabits Mortal Kombat X's Outworld Marketplace — a background character known as Blanche — has suffered immeasurably since the fighting game was released. She's an interactive background element, and can be thrown by any of the game's combatants like a human projectile. But thanks to a recent game update, Blanche is now dealing out all-new levels of hurt.

NetherRealm Studios recently made Blanche one of the game's hidden Brutalities, the alternative finishing moves that can only be performed under certain conditions. She's more than just a blunt object now, she's a rage-fueled ally ready and willing to cave in some faces.

How do you pull it off? Blanche's second Brutality requires that players use two of the other stage interactions in the Outworld Marketplace and finish off their opponent with Blanche, while also holding down while tossing her.

You can see another take on Blanche's revenge in the fight between Kitana and Mileena below.
