Riptor seems to have gotten lost on his way to Primal Rage and stumbled into the original Killer Instinct lineup, but he's got plenty of fans amongst the KI playerbase. Kilgore can manually vent his arms and cool them, returning them to their normal state; venting will also occur automatically after a short period of time.

Following the fall of Mycenae, invaders remove the gem, making the golem subservient, and it serves various masters as an obedient tool of war for a thousand years, replacing its damaged parts with whatever natural materials are available. He later frees Aganos from Ultratech's control, and the two form an alliance, working together to find both Eagle and Kan-Ra. His boney body is now strewn with ship rope, his cutlass is bigger than ever, and his dinky buckler has been upgraded to an ornate, much larger heater shield.

She recruits Jago, Orchid, and T.J. Combo to her cause, but they are ambushed by Ultratech forces and trapped, only to be spared as ARIA recalls her agents following Gargos' summoning.

It makes sense that Jago's the only free character--he feels very easy to use, with straightforward normals and relatively simple combos. These resources can be used as projectiles or to create destructible barriers behind or in front of himself, changing the boundaries of the stage.
