Noob Saibot Cosplay Costumes
Noob Saibot’s name is a combination of the last names of Mortal Kombat creators’ Boon and Tobias spelled backward. During his first appearances, the design of his character was focused on an all-black exterior. However, the game designers had difficulty rendering him in some versions without the character looking like he’s into bondage more than just looking like a killer ninja. Some designs had him looking like he was wearing a tuxedo while others depicted him with a hood. Some redesigns also show him unmasked and having red and blue colors. However, the Noob Saibot most Mortal Kombat fans will know and recognize is still the Noob Saibot in all black ninja gear. That’s why dressing up as him needs you decking yourself in all-black everything: ninja costume, arm armor, leather vest, face mask, knee pads, gloves, and even shoes.
About Noob Saibot
According to game strategy guide publishing company Prima Games, Noob Saibot is actually one of the most overpowered characters on Mortal Kombat. They say that he “had an unblockable projectile attack, fought side-by-side with Smoke and even had ridiculous zoning in MK9.” Noob Saibot’s debut as a playable character happens in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, where he is seen forming allegiances with evil Outworld emperor Shao Kahn, but secretly observing the emperor at the command of the Brothers of the Shadow.
He appears once in the TV adaptation Mortal Kombat: Konquest as an imprisoned Outworld warrior who was mistakenly released by Siro and Taja. He was then later on recruited to assassinate Kung Lao. He also makes an appearance in the 1997 film Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Here, he is a warrior who emerged from Ermac during a fight with Sonya. He is actually uncredited in the film but is mentioned by name in the script and movie novelization.
