Kano is a member of This Black Dragon clan, Also features from the Mortal Kombat fighting game Show. He's one of the few original characters, debuting in the original Mortal Kombat arcade game. He had been the first member of the Black Dragon to look in the show, followed by several more.

As a mercenary and pioneer of this global crime cartel called the Black Dragon, he climbs beyond mere brutality and aggression from also being sly and cunning. Originally from Australia, Kano is highly opportunistic and incredibly greedy, willing to betray his realm and his allies for cash or personal gain. Because of this, he quickly became a part of Shao Kahn's inner circle, and the general of Outworld's armies (in the first timeline). One of the notable features is his dry and twisted sense of humor, nearly always making light of dire conditions. He combines characteristics of a cowardly minion, a lone survivor, a crazed madman, and a ruthless commander. His activities have left him the archenemy of Sonya Blade, who's obsessed with finding and bringing Kano to justice.
Some of Kano's face is coated with a metal plate, the result of a disfiguring injury he sustained at the hands of Major Jackson Briggs before the events of the string, together with the plated eye being glowing red orb capable of emitting laser beams.

Kung Lao

Kung Lao is a former Shaolin monk and Also a Part of This White Lotus Society. He stands in the shadow of his great ancestor, the Great Kung Lao, but unlike his great ancestors has no need to be champion and would rather live a life of serenity. However, this was changed in MK 2011; wherein Lao is currently eager to prove himself equal to Liu Kang. Of the Earthrealm warriors, Lao is the most outspoken pacifist, although he won't hesitate to severely punish those who strike him, Earthrealm, or even his friends. His signature is his Razor-Rimmed Hat; he can use quite powerfully and effectively in combat. Many of his fatalities involve the usage of his hat to some degree.

Liu Kang

He is among the very few original characters, debuting at the original Mortal Kombat arcade game. He serves as the protagonist of their first four games, the live-action films, and the original comic book series. He turned into the Grand Champion of Mortal Kombat during the first four tournaments, a name that remained undisputed from the original timeline.

In the alternate timeline, he became the Grand Champion on two events, because a third tournament didn't occur during the invasion of Earthrealm. Although Liu Kang appears in each important Mortal Kombat game, he isn't playable in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, because he was murdered by the Deadly Alliance.

Raiden is the eternal God of Thunder, protector of Earthrealm, and possibly among the most compelling characters in most of Mortal Kombat. After the second defeat of Shinnok, he ascended to the status of Elder God. Being a god, he owns many supernatural skills, like the ability to teleport, control fly, and lightning. As a god, he is accustomed to thinking concerning eternity instead of healthy human lifespans, so he's a radically different outlook on life. This Isn't to say he is incapable of understanding human values and psyches. 

MK11 Raiden


It's known that his dad, a former member of the Shirai Ryu, forbade his son from joining the clan, as he didn't wish for his son to live the life of an assassin. However, Hanzo joined despite his father's wishes to supply his wife and son using a comfortable life.

Today Scorpion is a hell-spawned specter, inexorably seeking vengeance against those responsible for the devastation of his clan and the death of his family. Regardless of his malevolent appearance, he is not inherently evil. He joins the forces of evil when assured a means of resurrecting his clan on Earth, or the opportunity to inflict his anger against those who butchered them. Scorpion has also (indirectly) assisted the game's protagonists in meeting these motives.

Scorpion is perceived by enthusiasts as the title's foremost anti-hero. He undertakes activities that benefit the forces of good, albeit in his own gruesome and vigilante manner. His attitude, appearance, and self-reliance have contributed to his popularity. In comparison to this, only virtuous"good guys," and the diabolically wicked"bad men," Scorpion's moral neutrality is exceptional. Though he's featured alongside the forces of evil at the opening scene of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, he stays neutral because of his fierce hatred of Quan Chi.

Scorpion looks human when masked, though that is merely an illusion. His skull remains when in his true form, occasionally ablaze. However, he can completely regain his human appearance if he conquers his demons. Scorpion's hottest and recognized skill is his famous spear assault, which is used to draw an opponent supporting him. This assault will also stun the competition for a short amount of time. Scorpion will shout, "Get over here!" Or "Come here!" , while executing this technique.

Although Scorpion is often strict and wrathful, occasionally he shows a caring side and is very honorable. In the first deadline, if he finds the Sub-Zero in the second tournament is not Bi-Han and in reality his more merciful brother, Scorpion vows to shield Kuai Liang instead for killing his kin. From the second timeline, Scorpion truly meant to spare the first Sub-Zero in the market for the resurrection of his clan, but Quan Chi prevented this. Most notably, at the Mortal Kombat X comic show, it's shown he took in priests and victims of the Netherrealm War to his iteration of the Shirai Ryu to now protect Earthrealm whilst also raising Takeda Takahashi. In this period, he treated Takeda like his very own son, such as when he comforts Takeda later Fox's death.s

Shao Khan

Shao Kahn that the Konqueror is represented as the embodiment of evil. In many respects, he resembles a sizable Asian warrior and is well known among the roster of Mortal Kombat Kombatants because of his godlike strength that competitions, if not outright exceed, that of Raiden, the God of Thunder. He's also known for his extreme callousness, brutality, ferocity in battle, along with his fondness of personal executions, though he has occasionally spared the lives of his subordinates, if they prove their worth, and his victims such as Sindel and Kitana, raising the latter such as his wife and treating the former as his wife. But, the real power that has served him well and allowed him to rise above the image of a mere warlord is his great wisdom and profound understanding of the black arts. Like his weak Shang Tsung, he can consume other souls.

Perhaps Shao Kahn's biggest strength lies in his ability to work towards his intentions with fantastic tenacity and his ability to organize. However, his biggest weakness is his arrogance and overconfidence. Shao Kahn has often underestimated humanity, and therefore strove to conquer Earthrealm many occasions, with or without a queen (consort), to no success. Also, he possesses a blinding lust for conquest which can at times overpower his better judgment, permitting him to be manipulated by those that are cunning enough to exploit this weakness.

Sonya Blade

General of Earthrealm Special Forces, Sonya Blade is a beautiful, stern, tough-as-nails General. Sonya signifies a very emancipated and headstrong woman, but for his or her stubbornness and pride, she genuinely cares about the lives of her friends and comrades. She has a longstanding enmity with the Dark Dragon pioneer, Kano, who had murdered a former spouse of hers, also stands for that which Sonya despises. She's also feuded with other Black Dragon members such as Jarek.

Throughout the events of this brand new timeline, Sonya was in a relationship with Johnny Cage long after the Netherrealm War along with Shinnok's defeat. Together they had a girl in Cassie Cage.

Originally, Skarlet was a personality rumored to have been a key in Mortal Kombat II, though this was speculated to be a coding glitch from Kitana, much like Ermac, who had allegedly been a color glitch from Scorpion.

Sub Zero

Sub-Zero is your alias of two video game figures from the Mortal Kombat franchise; one of which was one of the original characters at the first Mortal Kombat game in 1992. A mainstay of this show, Sub-Zero is one of only three characters who has appeared in each main Mortal Kombat fighting game (in one form or another) and in many other Mortal Kombat media works.

Sub-Zero is a formidable fighter owning the innate ability to control ice in several forms and whose defining personality trait is his fierce competition with his nemesis Scorpion. In his first return appearance in Mortal Kombat II, it was revealed that the original Sub-Zero had expired during the events of the first game (in the hands of Scorpion) and was replaced by his brother. From the following games, the younger brother of Sub-Zero, stayed as Sub-Zero, although the older brother turned into the wraith.
