Ermac MK 2011
Ermac is a character from the famous bloody game franchise made by Netherrealm Studios, or formerly known as Midway, Mortal Kombat. Ermac's character development begins with a listing in an audit menu in the original Mortal Kombat game, which the word "ERMACS" is written. Originally, before the "real Mortal Kombat Ermac" came, Ermac stands for Error Macro, as explained by Ed Boon, and in fact, this "Ermac" is a macro simply created to catch coding errors. Then, Ermac officially debuts as a real character in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Since then, Ermac has been a consistent fighter in the series, even managed to get into the latest Mortal Kombat game in 2015, Mortal Kombat X. Ermac, although looks like a normal person, is actually just a body with thousands of soul inside it. He is the fusion of many souls destroyed in the wars of Outworld, which is controlled by Shao Kahn and his Shadow Priests. Because he is composed of many souls, he refers himself not as "I", or "Me", but as "We", or "Us". Due to this, he gains the gift of Telekinesis, and can travel through different realms. However, in Netherrealm, Ermac's powers can be drained, weakening him. Not just Telekinesis, Ermac is also physically strong and has knowledge of martial arts due to his soul composition that includes ancient warriors, giving him the ability to do martial arts. Ermac can also fire projectiles and fly. However, his flying technique only lasts for some few seconds although it is supported by Ermac's Telekinesis. Currently, in the latest game, Mortal Kombat X, Ermac gains enchanced powers due to the fact that now, Shao Kahn's soul is contained within Ermac himself, and he plans to usurp the throne of the new Outworld ruler, and the new Mortal Kombat character, Kotal Kahn.
