Mortal Kombat 11 is out, and it’s a pretty fun game, if I do say so myself. But there seems to be a strange controversy around certain aspects of this latest entry in the series — namely that the female characters models were altered a bit in the chest area:

These epic gamers, though, seem to be operating under a common misconception. Breasts come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and there’s certainly more range than simply As, Bs, and Cs! These poor men have never gotten an education on the glory that is real, non-digital, non-water balloon breasts.
As a woman, I am taking it upon myself to help you out. I’ll try and figure out all the cup sizes of the ladies of Mortal Kombat 11, and I’ll also include some interesting factoids along the way, so you just might learn something!

Jade probably has the biggest breasts of all of the Mortal Kombat characters, gods excluded. It’s easier to tell in her human form as opposed to her Revenant form, probably due to the outfit. Jade definitely has at least DDs, and they might even be Es.
Surprised? As it turns out, most women (and probably all men) don’t know how to correctly gauge breast sizes. The vast majority of women are wearing the wrong size bra, and that comes down to two factors: the wrong band length and the wrong cup size. Coupled with overall societal proclamations that DDs are the biggest they come, it’s no wonder why women may not know their true size.
Kitana’s smaller breasts fit with her smaller frame to look a lot more realistic and a lot less painful than earlier iterations of the character. I’d say these are likely B cups, maybe C cups in casual wear.
Why do I mention casual wear? Well, it’s extremely important to have proper breast support when doing physical activity, like say, killing people. Improper support can lead to pain and sagging boobs, and no one wants either of those things. You’ll see a number of the women in Mortal Kombat 11 in outfits or armor that appears to support and slightly constrict the breasts, and that’s great for them!
Sonya has kept in tip-top fighting shape all these years in the Mortal Kombat universe, and she’s in tit-top shape as well. It may be a little difficult to tell with her Special Forces jacket, but this mama is sporting D or DD sized breasts.
But regardless of her physical health, Sonya still needs to be aware of a hidden threat — breast cancer. The risk for breast cancer greatly increases as a person ages, with the highest risk over 50. So after Sonya is done taking down threats from other realms, she needs to get herself a mammogram.
Cassie has her Special Forces armor on most of the time, but it’s pretty likely she has a D cup. Not as big as her mothers’, of course, but a respectably sized breast.
However, Cassie is not free from the fear of breast cancer either. Breast cancer is more likely to happen to women with inherited gene mutations, so she needs to check both sides of her family medical history — and ensure Sonya gets regular check-ups — to make sure those well-supported breasts aren’t hiding a dangerous secret.
Look, Cetrion is an Elder God and can change shape and form whenever she wants. One of her Fatalities has her growing to the size of the planet to shoot a laser at her foe. At that point, her boobs are probably the size of Europe.
You can also… buy bras made of natural materials, so your skin is less likely to be irritated and break out? Sorry, it’s just really hard to follow-up “boobs the size of Europe” with much of anything, okay?
Frost is a cyborg in Mortal Kombat 11, so her breasts are made out of metal. They’re probably Bs or Cs, but frankly, they’re bumps on a metal frame more than anything. It’s strange that Frost looks mostly human while the other cyborgs clearly didn’t get the same treatment. Why does Frost look human, when maybe a gargantuan monster with 50 torture devices attached might make her a better fighter? It might have to do with the obsession with making robots and AIs look like humanoids. Or maybe she just wanted to be a Robot in Disguise.
Skarlet appears to have pretty average boobs. They’re solid Cs, maybe edging towards Ds. After all, human bodies don’t fit into select molds!
In addition, women’s breasts change shape and size throughout their menstrual cycle. As the milk glands engorge with the expectation of procreation, the boobs will naturally become bigger. Likewise, at the end of menstruation, boobs will become smaller due to hormone changes. Science is bloody fascinating, isn’t it?
D’Vorah is a colony of insects in a humanoid body. Why does she have boobs? Is it because she wanted to fit in? I’d say they’re about Bs, but they aren’t actual breasts. They’re, like, chitin or something. On that subject, why does D’Vorah have bones?
Insects obviously don’t use the food factory that is the breast to feed their young. But did you know that a certain type of cockroach produces milk in sacs for their babies to eat? Sometimes life is grosser than Kombat.
Jacqui is the most muscular of the female characters of Mortal Kombat 11, but that does cause a bit of a problem figuring out her size. Between that and the fact that she’s usually wearing some Buzz Lightyear-esque armor, Jacqui is probably a C cup, with a chance of being closer to a D in casual wear.
Whatever her size is, though, Jacqui faces racism in accessing healthcare, which can put all aspects of her health at risk, including sexual and reproductive health. At least this isn’t an issue in Jax’s alternate, better timeline.
The takeaway here is that boobs don’t map neatly onto a simple A-B-C “small, medium, large” range. Human breasts come in all shapes and sizes, and the ladies of Mortal Kombat 11 demonstrate some of that variation — even if some of them are made out of metal or chitin.
