Recently, it was discovered that a Google ad for the Mortal Kombat 11 Terminator DLC existed before it was removed. Now the same thing has been discovered for Evil Dead's Ash Williams, seemingly confirming the long-rumored character for NetherRealm's latest fighting game.
Yet again, this discovery was covered by the Dynasty YouTube account, where a Google search for the Ash Williams Mortal Kombat 11 DLC revealed an ad for the character appearing at the top of the results. These Google ad discoveries seem to corroborate the previous datamines revealing the Mortal Kombat 11 DLC lineup.
Considering this, it seems like a safe bet that the other Mortal Kombat 11 leaked DLC characters are likely accurate as well. This means that The Joker from DC Comics could very well be another guest fighter being planned for future DLC, perhaps to release alongside the Joker film in October, just as the Terminator DLC will likely release around November 1 when the Terminator: Dark Fate movie comes out.
However, that would make for three guest fighters counting Ash Williams, and there's only two more confirmed for the current Mortal Kombat DLC pack. This could be an indication that Ash won't be coming to Mortal Kombat 11 for quite some time, though that would be strange since the Shang Tsung trailer already teased him.
At the end of the Mortal Kombat 11 Shang Tsung DLC trailer, viewers can hear a chainsaw and see blood splatter on the screen. Since Ash Williams has a chainsaw for a hand, many assumed that this was an official tease for the character. Others have taken it as a tease for Doom Slayer, or other famous pop culture characters famous for wielding chainsaws.
But with this Google ad appearing for Ash Williams in Mortal Kombat 11 and not for those other characters, it seems as though fans shouldn't get their hopes up for Doom Slayer. At this point, it's just a matter of when Evil Dead's Ash Williams will be revealed for MK11, not if.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with a Google Stadia version also in development.
