Tremor Petition Numbers Catch the Eye of Creative Director
A fan-created petition for the brown-garbed ninja, Tremor is no joke. Fans have been making their voices known throughout the internet through a poll that has surpassed over 4,000 votes nearing its goal of 5,000 votes. NetherRealm Studios Creative Director, Ed Boon has indeed seen the impressive numbers and even advertised it on his twitter page with the remarks, "Damn! You guys REALLY want Tremor! :0".
Myself of all people also really wants Tremor to become a playable character for Mortal Kombat X. Perhaps the reasoning being that he's never officially been a playable character, other than briefly through the Playstation Vita version of Mortal Kombat 9 where he used recycled moves from other characters like Jax's Ground Pound call "Earth Pound".

More history on Tremor (credit: https://www.change.org/p/netherrealm-studios-make-tremor-a-playable-kombatant-in-mortal-kombat-x)
Tremor is a brown garbed ninja and a member of the Black Dragon clan who first appeared in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces. He escaped from Special Forces custody during a prison break orchestrated by Kano, to whom he was blindly loyal. Kano assigned him to guard the portal to Outworld and kill any Special Forces agents that may have discovered his whereabouts. Tremor was defeated and killed by Major Jackson Briggs in their encounter . Tremor was added as a playable character during the Bonus Challenge Tower in the Playstation Vita version of Mortal Kombat (2011). His "backstory" in said game states Tremor was apprehended by the Special Forces and imprisoned after being betrayed by Kano, acting under the facade of a confidential informant for the Special Forces, who were searching for the Black Dragon, but Tremor escaped. He then targeted both Kano and Jax for revenge. Tremor would make a good addition to Mortal Kombat X's roster due to the fact he has a unique relationship with the Black Dragon and the Lin Kuei, the latter of which he was rumored to abandon, the first Lin Kuei ninja to do so and live . Tremor would also be the series first character who can control the Earths crust which includes rocks/boulders making for many unique moves . We've acknowledged that Tremor cannot make the games base roster so we propose he should be DLC and DLC only ! By signing this petition you aren't just doing me a service, you're doing Mortal Kombat fans a service !
