The Most Powerful Characters in the Mortal Kombat Universe
1. Shao Khan
The antagonist of MKII and MKIII (taking over from Shang Tsung), Kahn is the emperor of Outworld and the brother of Raiden. He is often seen wearing a skull helmet and referred to as a God, destroying opponents with brutality and no emotion.
While arrogant and overconfident, Shao Kahn is a more dominant soul-absorber than Shang Tsung and, for a time, appeared unbeatable to many players of MKII. Speed in battle and a large array of abilities mean Shao Kahn is as dominant as any Mortal Kombat character created.
