Liu Kang is the main character of Mortal Kombat. This is a Shaolin monk who entered the decisive tenth tournament of Mortal Kombat for Earth. He defeated Shao Kahn's servants and actually saved the Earth from capture. He was killed, but then his body was returned to him by the Lord of lightning Raiden. His spirit returned to his body and Liu Kang again stood up to protect the Earth.

In the fight against the cruel emperor of the Outworld, he helped liberate other worlds as well. For this, the heroine of Edenia Kitana offered Liu Kang to stay with her, but he decided to remain the protector of the Earth.
