Patch Notes

Prior to Liu Kang’s new timeline, Smoke was a Lin Kuei warrior excelling at the art of stealth. Although he has no recollections of his upbringing, he believes Sub-zero and the rest of the Lin Kuei to be his family. 

As the Lin Kuei undergoes the Cyber initiative, Smoke is among the few ninjas to refuse and escape. During the invasion of Earthrealm by the Outworld forces, Smoke, alongside the other warriors, confronts a now cyborg sub-zero; they are able to knock him out of the fight and later reprogram him back to his real self.

Unfortunately, Smoke would later fall to a Sindel and cyborg ambush, which allowed Quan Chi to resurrect him as a revenant. Lacking his free will, he helped Quan Chi and Sindel release Shinnok and invade Earthrealm, now on the side of the Netherrealm. 

In the new universe, Smoke is adopted as a child by the Lin Kuei Grandmaster after his family is wrongly massacred for entering the clan’s territory. Tomas was then raised alongside Sub-zero and Scorpion, seeing both as his brothers.

Lacking in their supernatural powers, Smoke chose to learn practical magic, eventually becoming a great ninja by his own will and embracing smoke as one of his primary utilities.


A follower of the Lin Kuei, as part of the order, he sees his duty in serving not only his clan but also the balance created by Liu Kang. Thus, he is a loyal companion to Sub-Zero and Scorpion. But might be faced with difficult choices as the new Lin Kuei grand master starts to think about what they are truly capable of.


Smoke’s mastery over his element allows him to engage enemies at medium distance. He is a swift fighter, focusing on rushing down his opponents and bearing down on them with pressure and the threat to bring the fight into the air.


Dawning the Lin Kuei-style of garments with a light blue to grey tone. His silvery short hair contrasts with his bulky blue-ish face mask. His weapon of choice is the Karambit, a short curved dagger. Armored gloves, forearm guards, and a strong leather belt provide some protection for the otherwise light and ninja-like attire.
