The Most Powerful Characters in the Mortal Kombat Universe
God of thunder and protector of Earthrealm, Raiden has appeared in every instalment of Mortal Kombat and is a constant fan favourite with his powerful abilities. Since MK1, Raiden has utilised lightning control, teleportation and flying to dominate enemies. Now an Elder God, Raiden’s straw hat and the electricity radiating from his body have been a trademark for decades.
While other characters have gone through distinct changes in appearance and story, Raiden has remained iconic to the series and has rarely been required to demonstrate the true extent of his power.
