(Image of Blaze in lava)
Having been enslaved through sorcery to guard the molten incubation 
chamber, Blaze was finally freed once the dragon egg had hatched.

(Image of Blaze walking away from a burning building)
He then resumed the quest he had undertaken before being subdued by his 

Bo' Rai Cho
(Image of Bo' Rai Cho standing next to Kung Lao)
Bo' Rai Cho looked gruff, but beamed inwardly.  With their victory over 
the Deadly Alliance complete, he and Kung Lao had liberated Outworld 
from its latest threat.  Despite the years that had passed since 
training his last student, his skills had proven useful once more.  He 
was elated, but it would be most inappropriate to express such emotions
in front of his newest apprentice.

(Image of Bo' Rai Cho and Kung Lao training students)
Kung Lao invited his master to return with him to Earthrealm, to teach 
more warriors at the Wu Shi Academy.  The success of his apprentice gave 
him renewed confidence in his training skills and, for the first time, a 
clear purpose in life.  Bo' Rai Cho offered only token resistence.  He 
accepted the offer because the defenders of Earthrealm could certainly 
use his help.  But more importantly, because Earthrealm's rice wine put 
Outworlds liquor to shame.

(Image of Cyrax presenting the Orb to Nitara)
The enormous heat and pressure of the lava burned out Cyrax's sensors 
almost immediately.  He cast about blindly in the infernal pit, 
searching for the orb Nitara had sent him to locate.  Cyrax found it 
resting upon a small submerged pedestal beneath the molten depths.  As 
soon as he clambered to the surface, she demanded he hand over the Orb.  

(Image of Nitara sending Cyrax through a portal)
Nitara had promised to return Cyrax to Earthrealm once the orb had been 
retrieved.  Taking her necklace in hand, she uttered a mystical 
incantation.  A swirling portal opened around Cyrax and he only had time 
for a solemn bow before he was swept into the gateway.

(Image of Drahmin and Moloch battling Quan Chi)
Sent by the sorcerer Shang Tsung, the two Oni known as Drahmin and 
Moloch confronted Quan Chi, enraged that he had tried to leave them 
stranded in the bowels of the Netherealm.  In the battle that ensued, 
Drahmin leapt at Quan Chi and both kombatants stumbled into the Inner 
Sanctum Chamber.

(Image of Moloch staring at the transformed Drahmin)
Moments later, Drahmin emerged from the chamber altered from his 
previous form.

(Image of Frost blasting Sub-Zero with an ice blast while holding his 
As they traveled back to the portal that would return them to 
Earthrealm, Sub-Zero revealed to Frost that she had been an integral 
part in the destruction of the Deadly Alliance, and that he was proud to 
have her as a member of the Lin Kuei clan.  But unknown to Sub-Zero, 
Frost's true intention for joining the Lin Kuei was to become Grand 
Master herself.  She used her ice blast to temporarily immobilize him 
and ripped the Dragon Medallion from his chest.

(Image of Frost freezing to death while Sub-Zero watches in horror)
As she held the medallion, she felt power surge through her body.  
Lacking the strength and discipline required to control the medallion's 
immense power, she was consumed by her own freezing ability.

Hsu Hao
(Image of Hsu Hao kneeling before Mavado)
Hsu Hao reported to his superior, Mavado, and informed him of his 
success in destroying the Special Forces Outerworld Investigation 
Agency.  Mavado then informed Hsu Hao of his next objective...

(Image of Hsu Hao running to perform his next mission)
It seemed that Quan Chi was proving to be a powerful ally and was 
willing to aid the Red Dragon in its quest for domination of Earth.  In 
a show of good faith, Mavado agreed to destroy Quan Chi's enemies.  The 
sorcerer suspected betrayal from Shang Tsung.  There was evidence that 
Shang Tsung had allied with the two Oni known as Moloch and Drahmin.  
Hsu Hao's new orders were to eliminate the sorcerer Shang Tsung before 
the Oni eliminated Quan Chi.

Jax Briggs
(Image of Jax sneaking up on Hsu Hao)
Jax had a score to settle with the traitor he knew as Hsu Hao.  Now 
revealed to be a member of the Red Dragon, Hsu Hao had infiltrated the 
Special Forces Outerworld Investigation Agency and destroyed it with a 
miniature nuclear weapon.

(Image of Jax ripping out Hsu Hao's mechanical heart)
Making good on his promise, Jax eventually caught up with Hsu Hao and 
ripped the implant from his chest in retribution.  Hsu Hao died a most 
painful death.

Johnny Cage
(Image of Johnny Cage on the set of his new movie)
Upset by the way his adventures had been portrayed in the past, Johnny
Cage found a loophole in his contract and left MCM studios during the 
production of "Mortal Kombat: The Death of Johnny Cage".  He then used 
his own money to fund the production of his next movie, which is rumored 
to be the true story of his latest adventures in Outworld.

(Image of Johnny Cage's Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance movie poster)
"Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance" broke all records in its first weekend 
in theaters, and made Johnny Cage extremely wealthy.  The movie told the 
true story of how Johnny Cage single handedly saved the world from the 
threat of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung's deadly alliance.

(Image of Kano fighting Sonya)
Kano and Sonya had fought before.  Although Kano was humiliated by his 
defeat at her hands so many years ago, this time the outcome would be 

(Image of Kano and his army near the deceased Sonya)
Kano had stolen Quan Chi's amulet at the request of Shang Tsung.  With 
the amulet in his possession, Kano came to the realization that he was 
now in total control of the revived undefeatable army.  Rather than hand 
the amulet and the army over to Shang Tsung, Kano kept them for himself, 
and used the army to ambush Sonya, ending their long rivalry once and 
for all.

(Image of Kenshi near the kneeling Shang Tsung)
Kenshi had finally caught up with Shang Tsung in Outworld.  Years ago, 
Kenshi had been manipulated into releasing the souls of his warrior 
ancestors.  Shang Tsung had consumed those souls and left Kenshi to die 
in the tomb.  The ordeal left Kenshi blinded, but the sword of his 
ancestors led him out of the depths.

(Image of Kenshi slicing Shang Tsung with his sword)
To redeem himself, Kenshi had vowed to free his ancestors from their 
captor.  He cut Shang Tsung down with his ancestral sword and a blast of 
souls was instantly released.  The spirits of the warrior kings 
reentered the sword as Kenshi held it above his head.  His duty 
fulfilled, he could now return to Earthrealm.

(Image of Kitana at Goro's funeral)
Kitana's longtime enemy Shao Kahn was dead, and the alliance between
Shang Tsung and Quan Chi was defeated with the help of warriors from 
Earthrealm.  Although there was peace once more throughout the realms, 
all was not right for Kitana.  Saddened by the death of Goro, she 
attended a ceremony in the Kuatan palace to honor her fallen friend and 

(Image of Kitana watching Goro's cremation)
Following Shokan tradition, Prince Goro's body was lowered into the 
molten rock contained within the throne room itself.  As Kitana said 
goodbye to her war time ally, she also held a moment of silence for Liu 
Kang and secretly wished he had joined her in Edenia so many years ago.

Kung Lao
(Image of Kung Lao defeating Shang Tsung)
Rage fueled Kung Lao's thirst for revenge.  The memory of holding his 
fellow monk's broken body on the lei tai of the Wu Shi Academy grounds 
consumed him as he rained blow after blow down upon Shang Tsung.  Kung 
Lao had finally mastered the attack Bo' Rai Cho had taught him.  The 
sorcerer could not withstand his whirlwind assault.  Shang Tsung begged 
for mercy.  Kung Lao granted him none.

(Image of Kung Lao kneeling at the shrine to Liu Kang)
Upon his return to Earthrealm, Kung Lao stood before the modest shrine 
to Liu Kang which had been erected by the Wu Shi initiates during his 
absence in Outworld.  He lit a stick of incense and placed it among the 
others already burning there.  He bowed his head and prayed for safe 
passage to the afterlife for his friend and brother.  With Shang Tsung's 
death, Liu Kang's spirit could rest peacefully.  Earthrealm was safe 
once more, but at terrible cost.  The work of the White Lotus society 
had become more important than ever.

Li Mei
(Image of Li Mei's soul being transfered to a soldier's corpse)
Li Mei had been promised that her people would be freed from enslavement 
if she could win the tournament held by the Deadly Alliance.  Now that 
she had emerged victorious, the true purpose behind the tournament was 
finally revealed to her.  Her soul would be the last one Shang Tsung 
needed to completely revive the Dragon King's lost army.

(Image of the newly revived soldier)
Her people would never be freed and Li mei herself would remain trapped 
inside the mummified remains of a dead soldier... cursed to serve the 
Deadly Alliance... forever.

(For many years Mavado's Red Dragon clan had been secretly engineering 
the destruction of their rivals, the Black Dragon.  Through careful 
manipulation, Mavado had used the Special Forces to unwittingly aid them 
in this task.  In return for eliminating Kenshi for the Deadly Alliance, 
Mavado was finally granted his battle with the last known member of the 
Black Dragon: Kano.  After a long, brutal fight, Mavado emerged 
victorious and all traces of the Black Dragon had been erased.

(Image of Quan Chi and Mavado discussing the Lin Kuei)
Impressed with the fighting skill and discipline of Mavado as well as 
other members of his clan, Quan Chi realized the potential the Red 
Dragon held for staging the eventual invasion of Earthrealm.  In return 
for their continued assistance, he offered crucial information about a 
new threat to Mavado's Red Dragon clan... the Lin Kuei.

(Image of Mokap in a studio with Johnny Cage)
Mokap Man was the primary martial arts talent for motion capture during 
the production of Johnny Cage's movie based on recent events in 

(Image of Mokap being watched by Kano and two game designers)
He was referred to the game designers at Midway Games and used in the 
production of the Video Game adaptation of the movie.

(Image of Cyrax presenting the Orb to Nitara)
After what seemed like an eternity, Cyrax finally emerged from the lava, 
holding the Orb that had bound Nitara's realm to Outworld for ages.  At 
last it was within her grasp.  She would be able to free her people from 
Shao Kahn's imprisonment.  Fulfilling her end of the bargain, she sent 
Cyrax back to his Earthrealm home in exchange for the Orb.

(Image of Nitara gazing at the Orb)
Nitara stared into the Orb.  It seethed with the power trapped within.  
She raised it above her head, and then smashed it to the floor.  It 
shattered with an inhuman, soul-rending howl.  Its horrible energy 
exploded away, and tore her consciousness from her.  She awoke later for 
the first time on her native soil.

Quan Chi
(Image of Quan Chi killing Kano near Shang Tsung's dead body)
The Deadly Alliance was successful in reviving the mummified remains of 
the Dragon King's undefeatable army.  It would appear that nothing could 
stand in the way of Shang Tsung and Quan Chi as they began their 
domination of the realms.  Unfortunately for Shang Tsung, however, Quan 
Chi had no further need for the partnership.  Once Shang Tsung had 
finally revived the last of the mummified warriors, Quan Chi closed the 
portal to The Heavens and effectively shut off Shang Tsung's endless 
supply of souls.  Quan Chi then instructed Kano to assassinate Shang 
Tsung in a surprise weapon attack.  With their captor cut wide open, the 
thousands of souls Shang Tsung had consumed in the past spewed forth and 
swirled around the room.

(Image of Kano's body being possessed by an unknown soul)
Quan Chi came to the realization that if Kano could so easily turn on 
Shang Tsung, he could also turn on Quan Chi himself.  Quan Chi used his 
sorcery to drain the life from Kano and left his body where it fell.  
Immediately one of the lingering souls shot into Kano's body.  To Quan 
Chi's surprise, the man standing before him was no longer the Black 
Dragon thug known as Kano.  Kano's body now contained the soul of the 
Shaolin monk... Liu Kang.

(Image of Raiden pondering threats from the Dragon King, Oni, and 
Vampire armies)
Once again, the threat to Earthrealm has been vanquished.  The Deadly 
Alliance is no more.  What dangers lie in the future, I can no longer 
foresee.  Perhaps the Dragon King will, in fact, return.  Perhaps the 
depths of the Netherealm will spew forth a legion of Oni.  Even the 
Vampire people pose a threat to peace now that Outworld is in chaos.  
But one thing is certain... Earthrealm must be protected.

(Image of Raiden calling down thunder)
I have abandoned my status as Elder God to aid these mortals... an act 
defiant of the Heavens.  I will instead remain here on Earth... as GOD 

(Image of Reptile alone in the volcano)
Despite the strong sulphurous stench that filled the chamber, Reptile 
could smell that Nitara and Cyrax had been there recently.  There was no 
sign of them now, except for some scattered glass shards and a residual 
trace of strong magical energies.  His revenge would have to wait.

(Image of the Dragon King's egg blasting Reptile)
Suddenly an expectant hush filled the chamber as energy cascaded around 
what appeared to be a dragon embryo.  The tiny dragon stretched and the 
egg cracked.  A beam of energy ripped out from inside and lanced into 
Reptile.  His world was filled with roaring power as his squamous body 
was twisted and transformed.  The ancient prophecy had been fulfilled: 
the Dragon King had returned.

(Image of Scorpion fighting Drahmin and Moloch)
The hunt for Quan Chi had led Scorpion to the palace of Shang Tsung.  
Scorpion entered the palace through a hidden passage.  As he made his 
way through the lower levels, he was discovered by the two Oni he had 
previously encountered while in the Netherealm.  Shang Tsung had 
secretly allied with Moloch and Drahmin as a backup defense against Quan 
Chi.  The two Oni had been hidden in an underground chamber and were 
periodically fed mortals to keep them satisfied.

(Image of Scorpion being destroyed by other souls)
Scorpion fought well but was overpowered by Moloch and Drahmin.  
Although they could not consume the ninja spectre, they devised another 
means for eliminating their foe that would satisfy their cruel nature.  
The Oni brought Scorpion before the portal to The Heavens that Shang 
Tsung had tapped as a source of limitless souls.  They hurled him into 
the Soulnado and his hellspawn body was ripped apart by the purity of 
that realm.

Shang Tsung
(Image of Shang Tsung showing Quan Chi his stolen amulet)
The Deadly Alliance was successful in reviving the mummified remains of 
the Dragon King's undefeatable army.  Shang Tsung, however, began to 
realize that his relevance in the partnership had evaporated once his 
talents for soul transplantation were no longer needed.  The balance of 
power within the Deadly Alliance had seemingly been undone.  Fearing 
betrayal, he secretly instructed Kano to steal Quan Chi's amulet in an 
attempt to gain control of the army.  Since part of the soul-transfer 
spell included the command to obey 'He who possesses the amulet,' the 
army would obey only Shang Tsung, and not Quan Chi, once the amulet was 
in his possession.

(Image of Quan Chi being torn apart by Shang Tsung's army)
Amulet in hand, Shang Tsung revealed his betrayal to Quan Chi and 
commanded the army to destroy the sorcerer.  Shang Tsung would succeed 
where others had failed.  He would conquer the realms.  He would conquer 

Sonya Blade
(Image of Sonya finding the injured Kenshi)
After the destruction of the Deadly Alliance, Sonya searched for the 
missing Special Forces agent Kenshi.  She finally discovered him badly 
beaten and near death apparently from hook-like wounds in his ribcage.
She managed to return him to the rendezvous point where I transported 
them back to Earthrealm.

(Image of Sonya in her military uniform with Jax, Kenshi, and Cyrax)
Upon her return, Sonya was promoted to General and giver her choice of 
command.  She hand-picked a team to deal with new terrorist threats 
located on Earth.  While in Outworld, Special Agent Kenshi had learned 
of a new threat to peace.  The Red Dragon had awakened.

(Image of Sub-Zero carrying Frost to the Lin Kuei temple)
After defeating the Deadly Alliance, Sub-Zero returned to the new temple 
of the Lin Kuei with the severely injured ninja Frost.

(Image of Sub-Zero kneeling before Raiden)
A short time later, I visited the temple to commend him for his victory 
in Outworld and to express my gratitude for all his assistance.  With 
Sub-Zero now the Grand Master of the Lin Kuei, Earthrealm will be well
