*From Wikipedia*
One of the primary villains in the Mortal Kombat series, Shao Kahn resembles an
Asian warrior-king in many respects, and embodies evil in many forms. He is
known for his godlike strength, extreme callousness, brutality and his fondness
of personal executions, but rises above the level of a mere warlord through his
intelligence and knowledge of black magic. Like his subordinate Shang Tsung, he
has the power to consume other souls. His greatest strength is probably his
ability to work towards his goals with great tenacity and his ability to
organize, but his greatest weaknesses are his arrogance and his overconfidence.

Game Appearances:
Mortal Kombat II, Mortal Kombat 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat
Trilogy, Mortal Kombat Advance, Mortal Kombat: Deception, Mortal Kombat:
Shaolin Monks and Mortal Kombat Armageddon.

Alternate Outfit:
Find in Konquest or purchase in the Krypt.

Unlocked: From Start

ii. History                                                             [102]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*From Wikipedia*
Shao Kahn originally served as an advisor to Onaga when the latter ruled
Outworld as the Dragon King. Onaga's Empire had become the most powerful in the
realms and so he began searching for a way to become immortal. Before his goal
could be realized, Shao Kahn made his move by poisoning Onaga and taking his
kingdom. Leading whatever troops that remained loyal to the Dragon King, Kahn
continued many of the former emperor's plans. He continued to add lesser realms
to Outworld, either through direct conquest or through Mortal Kombat.

A milestone in his military victories was the merging of Edenia with Outworld.
After his warriors had won in Mortal Kombat, Kahn invaded the realm. On the
battlefield, Kahn killed King Jerrod, and took Queen Sindel as his wife,
raising her daughter, Princess Kitana, as his own. He had the young princess
trained as his personal guard and as an assassin. Sindel took her own life in
an attempt to escape subservience to the Emperor. Unwilling to be denied, Kahn
held her soul in Outworld, stopping her transition to the afterlife.

Many years later, Kahn chose Earthrealm as his next conquest. He sent Shang
Tsung and eventually Goro to Earthrealm to prepare it for an invasion in the
event of Goro maintaining his position of champion. A turning point came when
Prince Goro defeated the Great Kung Lao and started a winning streak that would
last for 500 years. Shang Tsung, a shapeshifter, supervised the tournament. The
tenth Mortal Kombat however, saw the defeat of both Goro and Shang Tsung by a
Shaolin monk, Liu Kang, ruining five hundred years of Tsung's investment. Shang
Tsung begged Shao Kahn for his life, and came up with a plan to lure Earth's
chosen warriors to Outworld for a second tournament. Shao Kahn spared Tsung's
life and restored his youth. If Earthrealm's champions could be killed, they
would not be able to cause further damage to Kahn's plans. With the captured
Kano and Sonya Blade as bait, and enraging Liu Kang by sending Baraka and his
troops to destroy the Shaolin temples, they confidently waited for the Earth
warriors to fall into the trap. Despite Kahn's vast power, Liu Kang's
determination saw him through, and he defeated the despot. Unwilling to accept
defeat, Kahn called his armies to destroy the Earthrealm warriors. They fled
back to Earthrealm, out of Kahn's clutches.

By this time, Shang Tsung was able to resurrect Queen Sindel in Earthrealm, and
Kahn could reach across the border to claim her, merging Earthrealm and
Outworld in the process. Kahn had Tsung proceed, and when the realms merged,
every living being in Earthrealm had their souls ripped from their bodies.
Kahn's day finally seemed to have come. Lord Raiden had protected the souls of
a handful of warriors, but Kahn sent extermination squads to kill them. In the
ensuing fights, Kahn was confronted by Kung Lao, another Shaolin monk and
descendant of the warrior Goro defeated to become champion of Kombat, but Kahn
crushed him. Raiden brought Liu Kang to fight him again, and the Shaolin Monk
wore Kahn down enough for him to recall his squads and retreat to Outworld,
which stopped the merger and restored Earthrealm to its original status. To
make matters worse for Kahn, many of his loyal soldiers had abandoned him, and
Kitana had succeeded in turning Sindel to her side, restoring Edenia as an
independent realm.

Shao Kahn and Goro slaying Onaga (Kahn's MK:D ending)The emperor was now
greatly weakened, and would remain so for a period of several years, remaining
inactive during Shinnok's war against the gods. The Edenians had in the
meantime made peace and military treaties with the Shokan, on whom Kahn had
always heavily relied, and were ready to attack Outworld a few years later. It
was only through his new commander Kano's ingenuity, and the stealth of his
unreliable assassin Noob Saibot (who critically wounded Goro) was Kahn able to
save the day and force the Edenian army into a draw. Soon afterwards, the
sorcerors Quan Chi and Shang Tsung entered his throne room, and swore false
allegiance to the emperor. Quan Chi and Shang Tsung caught Shao Kahn off guard
and seemingly killed him. This would appear to be the demise of the mighty
Kahn. In the GameCube version of Deception it is revealed that Kahn did not
die, and that it was a clone that Quan Chi and Shang Tsung killed. The real
Kahn appeared to the wounded Goro and, using what little power he had left,
revived him, thus gaining Goro and the Shokan as allies once again.

In the events of Armageddon, Shao Kahn forms an uneasy alliance with Quan Chi,
Shang Tsung,and Onaga in hopes of obtaining Blaze's powers. In his ending, Shao
Kahn makes his way to the top of Argus's Pyramid for the final confrontation
with Blaze. Shao Kahn proved to be too powerful for Blaze and easily defeated
him. Shao Kahn's armies destroyed what was left of his enemies, and with the
power Shao Kahn recieved from defeating Blaze, he merges all the realms with
Outworld. With his main goal completed and having complete control over all the
realms, Shao Kahn grew mad with not only power, but from boredom as well. With
nothing else to conquer and no one to oppose him, Shao Kahn's sole purpose in
the Mortal Kombat franchise had been fullfilled.

Mortal Kombat Annihilation
Shao Kahn is the main bad guy in the movie and kills Johnny Cage, Rain, and
Jade throughout the movie before dying to Liu Kang. It is also mentioned in the
move that he and Raiden are brothers and Shinnok is the father. This however
was never confirmed in any game and therefore may not be true.

Abuse Charging Spikes all the time, this move is great. You should try and get
some other moves in like Angry Ruler and then follow that up with a Screaming
Hammer. Use his hammer most of the time though because it has tremendous
strength.

The Playstation 2 and the Xbox are the two systems that have this game so I
have to use a different key that encorporates both systems. There is a simple
key below, and you can expect Wii controls as it releases.

Yes, there are only two styles for Shao Kahn.

Uplifting Smack........TH
His throw is nothing special, I don't recommend using it that much

Explosive Blast........D,F+1
The EB is pretty nice, you should try to find room to use this

Uplifting Knee.........B,F+3
Another pretty good move, just make sure you're not too far away or you'll
leave yourself open for a free hit

Charging Spikes........F,F+2
One of his best moves and the input is quite easy, use this as often as possible

Emperor's Shield.......D,B+1
Probably his best move, use this to block anything or if they get to close

Mystic Choke...........D,F+3
The Choke is alright, I don't find it that effective though

Ridicule...............D,U+1
This taunt isn't that much, it hardly heals at all and the taunts aren't that
great
