I liked Reiko in MK4... he was my main back in the day. His finishing move with the throwing stars was too good. Even though his attire makes him seem like a typical MK "ninja clone" to add to the collection, simply the fact that he fought maskless made him kinda cool IMO.

When he finally reappeared in
MK: Armageddon, Midway totally changed up his design, nearly making him unrecognizable (not a great idea when bringing back a "not-so-popular" classic character in a fighting game). In fairness, his new look isn't terrible... but kinda boring at the same time, even for Mortal Kombat.
