It confused the hell out of me. It was decent for the time and the fighting scenes were alright too. But was the Kung Lao in the tv show the Great Kung Lao or the Kung Lao that fights beside Lui Kang in Shaolin Monks? And why wasn't Kung Lao in MK1 or MK2 the movie?

Actully, what he asked about is canon to the MK story...he is the great Kung Lao, the one defeated by Goro in Mortal Kombat. The TV shows is set 500 years before the first MK tournament.

From what I recall of the series, it's the Great Kung Lao. The series takes place before even Goro was hired by Shang Tsung to defeat him. I'll fill you in on some background info to elaborate:

Over a millenia ago, Shang Tsung was hired by Shao Kahn to win the Mortal Kombat tournament ten times in a row to merge Earthrealm and Outworld. Nine centuries later, during the tenth Mortal Kombat (he'd already won the first nine) the Great Kung Lao (the one in Mortal Kombat Conquest) defeated him, resetting the number of victories for Outworld to zero.

Mortal Kombat Conquest takes place shortly after Shang Tsung's defeat at the hands of the Great Kung Lao, and ends prior to Lao's defeat by Goro. While the TV series is a seperate canon universe from the games, it would take place centuries before the events of the first Mortal Kombat game.

in fareness the only ones that died in deception were Kitana, Kung Lao, Jax Briggs, Johnny Cage, and Sonya Blade, thats hardly the majority. others were resurrected, but at different stages witch still doesn't account for a majority. though im sure someone will correct me...

As I understand, those who win the Mortal Kombat tournament are given the "gift of youth" (as Raiden put it) until the next tournament, so they can participate. I think this was stated in the MK movie "The Journey Begins", and I apply it to the game as well, despite that the animated film is from its own canon universe. As for Shang Tsung, he's a sourcerer and an Outworlder, not a human, so he lives longer. Not to mention all the souls he steals to replenish his youth.

Technically there has only been one Mortal Kombat tournament that has preserved Earthrealm since the game series started, (which is of course the one from the first game; MK1). Every other game after that has, at most, been a couple years later than the one before it.

Also, the MK2 "tournament" was just to lure the Earthrealm warriors into Outworld to attempt to kill them, but mostly to distract them while Sindel was revived on Earth so that Kahn could merge the realms without winning ten Mortal Kombats. MK4 was just a gathering of Earthrealm's warriors to fight Shinnok and prevent him from dominating the realms. MKDA was again a summoning of warriors to stop the Deadly Alliance before they could revive the Dragon King's undead army. MKD was a direct continuation of MKDA, whereby warriors from all realms joined either the forces of light or the Dragon King, one trying to prevent him from becoming omnipotent, the other attempting to assist him (or obtain the power for themself). MK:AR took place a little bit after MKD, and again wasn't a tournament to save Earthrealm from merging with Outworld, but a competition to defeat Blaze and achieve god-like powers.

So, while you're right that they can't all win all the time, thus far the current forces of light have only won the tenth Mortal Kombat tournament (twentieth if you include all of the ones which have occured since the Elder Gods created Mortal Kombat, but the Great Kung Lao set Tsung's winning streak back to zero before he was killed by Goro in the following tournament).


This is getting kind of off topic though, as we're discussing the series. In any case, the Great Kung Lao didn't win every time. He was killed by Goro, who, ten tournaments later, was defeated/killed by Liu Kang.

how often does a normal mortal kombat occur then?

and why is it that the other four realms participate, if they don't affiliate with earthrealm or outworld?

i don't feel that answers the whole immortality debate though, since only 11/20 were for the gift of youth, and there are much larger contestant base than that.

lastly, what is known about the first 10MKs?

though as you say, yes were going off topic, but im stuck for a topic name:-/

A Mortal Kombat tournament occurs once every 100 years I believe. If not, then it's every generation (though I'm pretty sure its the former).

The Mortal Kombat tournament was originally created by the Elder Gods, after some holy wise men from the far east had visions of an Outworld invasion (this would had to of been about two millennia ago). The idea of the tournament was that Outworld had to win ten victories in a row before Earthrealm and Outworld could be merged.

The tournament was corrupted by Shang Tsung when he began to host it, and he was able to win nine victories in a row. On the tenth tournament, the Great Kung Lao defeated Shang Tsung, thus resetting Outworld's winning streak. The following tournament, Shang Tsung was provided with the Shokan Prince, Goro. Goro killed the Great Kung Lao and was able to win another nine victories. Again, on the tenth victory, Liu Kang won.

The reason the other realms aren't threatened is because Shao Kahn's attention has been focused on merging Outworld and Earthrealm for all this time. Had he succeeded, he likely would have moved on to Order Realm or Chaos Realm.

Little is known about the first ten MK's, except that it became corrupt when Shang Tsung took over and began hosting it, and that the Great Kung Lao ended his winning streak, savin Earthrealm.

It΄s once per 50 years (one generation).

A 2,000 year old half human dragon Goro remains undefeated for the past 500 years.


500 years : 10 tournaments= one tournament per every 50 years Wink
