If you're going to play a character named Noob, why not act the part?
Mortal Kombat's Noob Saibot got his name from the last names of game creators John Tobias and Ed Boon spelled backwards. So it really was a stroke of luck that he get stuck with such an unfortunate first name. Noob gained a little more street cred in Mortal Kombat: Deception, when it was revealed that he was the original Sub-Zero, also known as Bi-Han, but no one really cared. A Noob is a noob, and that's all he'll ever be.
