Scorpion is the iconic MK character. His fiery persona and mean-looking figure typecasted him to antagonist or harden badass roles. But since his original release, he has slowly crept up into the good camp as more information is available of him.Know more

More about Scorpion:


A lost soul seeking revenge for his family. Hanzo was born to the Shirai Ryu clan. His father tried to keep him from becoming an assassin, but his efforts would be unsuccessful. Scorpion secured himself a good life with his bloody line of work. But he would not be at peace. Another clan would attack him and exterminate them all. Scorpion would then come back to earth as a Hellspawn seeking revenge.

Enraged by Quan Chi's lies, Hanzo killed Bi-Han from the rival Lin Kuei Clan in the first Tournament. This event spawned the undead wraith Noob Saibot. Still, Scorpion is ultimately good or at least seeks to do good.
