Riptor is one of the original characters from the original "Killer Instinct". She is a product of Ultratech after splicing human and reptilian DNA. A monster with the ferocity of an animal, and the intelligence of man; she is one of the most ferocious combatants in the Killer Instinct Tournament.
Despite this, she doesn't appear in the second game because TJ killed her. Though it's not exactly confirmed, it's implied that TJ had a "decisive victory over Riptor".
Fortunately, Ultratech is able to bring her back, this time with cybernetic upgrades In the current version of Killer Instinct. Ready to tear apart her foes once more...
(It's been noted that in the current Killer Instinct, Riptor is now being mass produced, with the most ferocious one being the one called Riptor)

Weaknesses: Riptor is torn by her human reasoning and her predatory instincts. This usually made her confused at first as she resorted to attacking on sight if she fails to understand something (she seems to overcome this weakness in the current KI as she can take orders from ARIA)
- Flame Breath: Riptor breathes fire into her opponent. (Originally Acid)
- Primal Run: Riptor quickly dashes at her opponent and slides forward. She can choose either to tackle them, blast a puff of fire, pounce, or sweep her opponent with her tail.

- Survival Run: Riptor quickly retreats while staring at her opponent. in this stance she can blast fireballs while retreating or knock pursuing enemies behind her with tail.

- Instinct Mode: Riptor's Cybernetics go into overdrive increasing her sped and the range of her flames and tail. (Current KI only)
Note: Riptor from the original and current KI basically have the same stats so I don't think there's a need for a key.
