With so many discussions over and underestimating characater popularity, I decided to revisit the stats published by MKX game itself. You can write them if you wait in the online menu of the game.

One caveat I have is that it seems not to include the Kombat Pack 2 characters. It may be globally designed this way orit may be because I did not purchase them. Though the latter would be very stupid.

So, here goes. Number of uses given in millions:

Sorry about the stile issues in GameFaqs

I find that odd. But hmm. I still believe Erron black will return.

I hope they both come back. But I do have to agree that human reptile is way better.

Few things here.
The Most popular are of course Scorpion followed by Sub Zero.
The third place goes for Johnny Cage. For those thinking he is not popular, well, he really is.
Liu Kang, Raiden and, surprisingly Takeda complete the list of Ultra popular characters.
Cassie Cage is the most popular female. Sonya, while not in the "a-list" of popularity is exactly in the middle of the list. Kano on the other hand is not popular at all.
Jason has impressive numbers, esp. if you remember he is DLC
Kitana edges out Mileena in popularity.
The stats are actually quite close for most of the list. There is very small gap of less than 2 percent usage between Predator at number 19 and Cassie at number 7.
The line where I actually think "unpopular" characters are, is where there is some gap. I say Kenshi and below are quite unpopular. But there is also a gap above it between D'vorah and Jacqui. But D'vorah upwards all are used enough to claim relative popularity.

They're not among my personal favorites, but I still have a lot of trouble believing that Erron Black and Reptile were the least picked characters in the game. I always thought they had a lot of aesthetics appeal (Erron especially), and they were both considered top tier at one point or another in the game's lifespan.

Jesus, and who can forget the MK community absolutely nutting themselves forever over Erron's reveal and waiting for his release?

Wasn't Mileena the least used character in MK9? Erron Black and Reptile confirmed for MK11 then :D

This is true. When Erron was shown in the comics, people went nuts

To compare, here's a list made back when the game first came out. I think there's some interesting placements over time.
