Somewhat of an opportunist, she will make use of any chance to seize power that comes within her hands.

Making his debut in Mortal Kombat 3, Cyrax was one of the three cybernetic ninjas created by the Lin Kuei, in an effort to convert all members into unfeeling, cold-hearted, cybernetic assassins to improve their performance. Of all the three cyborgs, Cyrax appears to be specialized in Hand-to-Hand Combat. He was assigned to hunt down the renegade, former Lin Kuei member Sub-Zero as designated unit LK-4D4. Of the three cyborgs, he has become the first to recover his humanity. This is due to the efforts made by Sonya Blade and Jax Briggs. He has currently allied with them as a token of his appreciation. In the alternate timeline of MK 2011, he was automated and dutifully serves the Lin Kuei, but was visibly opposed to the process before being presumably automated against his will.

22: Ermac

Ermac is a red-clad ninja who utilizes telekinesis during fights in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He made his debut in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Before that, however, he was a subject of fan speculation that began with a glitch in Mortal Kombat.

Since his debut, despite siding with some of the antagonists in the series, Ermac has been seen as a neutral character that sides with those looking to better his native realm of Outworld, most notably finding a proper ruler.

23: Kabal

Kabal is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series, who made his debut in Mortal Kombat 3

Kabal was first introduced in Mortal Kombat 3, sporting long, black hair, Hookswords and a respirator. He was a mysterious chosen warrior who survived an attack from one of Shao Kahn’s extermination squads. His origin was unknown, however, his ending reveals he was actually a member of the Black Dragon. At the time of his introduction, he appeared as a force for good, but has since reverted to his evil ways, planning to place himself as the head of the new Black Dragon clan.

In Mortal Kombat (2011), Kabal is once again good, although his past as a Black Dragon member was mentioned by Kano after Kano fixes him with his respirator and improvements.[2] Before his disfigurement by Kintaro’s flames, he was a police officer partnered up with Kurtis Stryker. By the end of the story, Kabal is dead and has been reanimated as one of Quan Chi’s revenants. He serves the sorcerer for the whole length of MKX, being freed from his control by the end whilst remaining undead.

In Mortal Kombat 11, the revenant Kabal serves now-emperor and empress Liu Kang and Kitana of the Netherrealm alongside Jade and Kung Lao. A younger pre-melted Kabal appears as well, summoned due to Kronika’s meddling with timeline. This Kabal is still a member of the Black Dragon, and later fights a younger Sonya after hearing from Kano that she is the one to disfigure him in the future (this being a lie in order to get the two to fight)

24: Motaro

Motaro is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He made his debut in Mortal Kombat 3, in which he also served as the sub-boss

Motaro made his first appearance in Mortal Kombat 3. He is a Centaurian, meaning that he has the body of a stallion and the torso of a man. He also has a pair of capricorn-like horns and a long, metallic rat-like tail he can use as both an energy channeling point and a limb. He is nearly 9 feet tall. Centaurians are known for their hunting skills and their mystical powers.

Motaro, along with his entire race, harbors a deep-seated hatred for the Shokan, whom he sees as inferior. The two races constantly struggle against each other in order to prove their value to Shao Kahn and to finally define which one is superior.

26: Rain

Rain is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He made his debut in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.

Rain was originally meant to appear in Mortal Kombat 3, but didn’t actually appear until Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Rain was originally a red herring inserted by the game developers; a character shown in the game’s attract mode who did not actually exist within the game itself. A recent interview reveals that the insert was made by Ed Boon himself to intentionally trick players. Many MK fans searched for him in vain, with the eventual realization of his status as a joke character (named after a Princesong, “Purple Rain”) dawning. The joke expands further when it is revealed that Rain is a “prince” himself. He would, however, soon make an actual appearance in the console versions of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, and Mortal Kombat Trilogy as a full-fledged character with his own history (that of a traitor to his realm) and move set, to the delight of many fans and the chagrin of others.

27: Sektor

Sektor is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He made his debut in Mortal Kombat 3.

Throughout the various Mortal Kombat games he was involved in, Sektor has grown into an ever more menacing mechanized warrior. He represents the closest thing to evil a cyborg can be, and combines traits of both a stealthy ninja and a ruthless killing machine fit for modern warfare. In contrast to his counterpart Cyrax, Sektor never bothered to rediscover his human side, and may be unable to. As far as this could be said about a cyborg, it is likely that he suffers from a form of insanity. Even in his human form, Sektor was utterly devoted to the Lin Kuei clan and, unlike Cyrax, Sub-Zero, and Smoke, never questioned or resisted the cyberization process. He is capable of independent thought and action like Cyrax and Smoke; however, unlike the other two cyborgs, the only emotions Sektor really displays are anger and ruthlessness.

28: Sheeva

Sheeva is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series who made her debut in Mortal Kombat 3.

Sheeva belongs to the ancient race of the Shokan, a race of mighty four armed half Human, half Dragon beings from Outworldthat are the archenemies of the Centaurian race. Like all of her race, she possesses a tall, muscular build, and four arms. Notably, Sheeva served as the personal bodyguard of Queen Sindel during Shao Kahn’s failed invasion of Earthrealm.

29: Sindel

Sindel is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. She made her debut in Mortal Kombat 3.

Sindel returned in Mortal Kombat 11 as a DLC character, being the fourth character available in the Kombat Pack.

Despite her menacing appearance, in the original timeline Sindel is kind and benevolent in nature. She rules the Realm of Edeniaalongside her daughter, Princess Kitana. Sindel’s power appears to be of an inner, ethereal nature in more than one way. She is a distinctly older and more mature character, with flowing grey hair and a regal attitude befitting of her role as Queen of Edenia. She has a natural affinity with aerial magic, as evidenced by her ability to levitate and manipulate sonic waves.

In Mortal Kombat: Deception, creator Ed Boon describes Sindel as a challenging character in more ways than one. Although Sindel is not one of the main characters in the series, she was involved in a big part of the game. This had to do with the fact that her rule over Edenia made her a target for many other rulers like Shao Kahn, Shinnok, and Onaga. Sindel was one of the few villainous characters to become heroic in the series.

In the new timeline, Sindel’s backstory is retconned in Mortal Kombat 11, revealing she has been evil all along, with her supposed unwillingness to marry Shao Kahn being a lie she told to keep the Edenians (and especially Kitana) loyal to her.

30: Tanya

After Shinnok’s defeat, she later served Shao Kahn, the Deadly Alliance, and Onaga. Tanya seems to view herself as a survivor more than anything else, justifying her choices as being the “right decisions”. She is one of the few henchwomen from the Mortal Kombat series, and prides herself on her superior knowledge of magic and diplomacy. Because of her frequent betrayal of the Edenian cause, she has earned the rivalry and bitter hatred of Jade.

31: Quan Chi

He made his debut in the animated series, Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm while his first video game appearance was in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero in which he served as the central antagonist, and he first became playable in Mortal Kombat 4 in which he served as the secondary antagonist.

After the second defeat of Shinnok, he ascended to the status of Elder God. Being a god, he possesses many supernatural abilities, such as the ability to teleport, control lightning and fly. As a god, he is used to thinking in terms of eternity rather than normal human lifespans, and so he has a radically different outlook on life. This is not to say he is incapable of understanding human values and psyches.

Hailing from the Arnyek Islands, D’Vorah’s realm was conquered by Shao Kahn and she chose to serve the emperor to avoid becoming a slave. Rising in political power, D’Vorah now serves Kotal Kahn as his second in command and closest adviser, assisting him in the civil war against Mileena. However, D’Vorah’s ulterior motive is The Hive’s survival, the birth place of all other Kytinn, as she is the last known living Kytinn.

Drahmin was not always a demon; as centuries ago, he was a cruel human warlord in Outworld. For his crimes, he died and was exiled to the Netherrealm where his body and soul were to be tortured for all eternity.

In the second timeline, Sub-Zero made historic peace with his clan’s enemy, Scorpion, defiant Frost challenged her Grandmaster as unfit to lead. Sub-Zero defeated her though, and banished her. For years, she sought the power to destroy him.
