Kano is sometimes given as a free starter character in the game, which doesn't give you much of a choice but to fight with him. If that is the case then the prefered special attack is "Blade Throw", as it applies bleed DOT to your active opponent. He is best used as a finisher because of his passive ability and is commonly teamed with Reptile and Kotal Kahn.
