The Most Powerful Characters in the Mortal Kombat Universe
Taking over from Shao Kahn to become the antagonist of MK4, Shinnok is a powerful fallen God that has a primary goal of vengeance. He isn’t as intimidating as earlier villains, but possesses magical abilities that allow him to rule the Netherrealm. Much like the other antagonists, this character can copy other characters while also being able to turn into a destructive demon, but doesn’t have to absorb the souls in the way that Shang Tsung does.
Shinnok is a sorcerer that uses his cunning tongue to play people against one another, a more mature evil that doesn’t rely on physical prowess.
