Mortal Kombat Girls Art


Tanya is a slender, gloomy female from Edenia. Introduced as a relative innocent, she quickly turns out to be corrupted by evil, as evidenced in her worship of Shinnok and her later service to both the Deadly Alliance and Onaga. She seems to view herself as more of a survivor rather than anything else, justifying her choices as being the “right decisions”. During this time, she attempts to lure Liu Kang into a trap, but the attempt does not succeed, and Shinnok’s power base is soon destroyed. With her master gone, and herself a wanted traitor in Edenia (having earned in particular the wrath of Jade), Tanya flees to Outworld.
Years later, Tanya resurfaces in the Deadly Alliance’s ranks as an enforcer. She imposes Shang Tsung and Quan Chi’s will upon the denizens of Outworld. When the Deadly Alliance is killed, Tanya is found, however, by Baraka, who gives her the choice of serving the newly resurrected Onaga or death. She joins the ranks of the Dragon King, who was searching for ancient incantations that would enable him to fuse the Kamidogu into one, and thus acquire incredible power. Believing that such information still existed in Edenia, Tanya brings Onaga to her native realm.
Tanya could be considered to be the single most untrustworthy character in the series. She has betrayed both Kitana and Queen Sindel, her own homeworld of Edenia, Liu Kang, Quan Chi, Shinnok (fighting with Onaga in Deception), and her Deception ending depicts her as betraying Onaga and Shujinko in Konquest mode. Her villainy was hard to distinguish when she debuted in Mortal Kombat 4, since her profile seemed to depict her as a victim of treachery. Her ending in MK4 (which never occurred canonically) demonstrates her alignment with evil, and reveals that she did in fact know the true nature of the refugees she accepted. Because of her frequent betrayal of the Edenian cause, she has also earned the rivalry and bitter hatred of Jade.


A primary hero in the Mortal Kombat saga, Kitana is the princess of Edenia and the daughter of Queen Sindel. She is over 10,000 years old, although she appears to be in her early to mid twenties, due to the much slower rate at which Edenians age. Through the years, she has risen to great importance, first as the loyal stepdaughter of Shao Kahn; then his enemy, tearing herself away from his grasp and freeing her home realm of Edenia; and then leading an army into Outworld to combat any chance of Shao Kahn rising to power again.
Driven by a search for justice, redemption, and peace, Kitana is a strong combination of discipline, intelligence, love and perseverance. She shared a subtle love interest with Earthrealm champion Liu Kang until he was murdered by the Deadly Alliance, though they were briefly reunited prior to his resurrection. She has aligned herself on the good side, despite her loyalty to Shao Kahn for most of her life until learning the truth about her past and real family. Kitana has an evil clone named Mileena and the two are arch-enemies.


Sareena is one of Quan Chi’s personal assassins ordered to kill Sub-Zero before he reached Quan Chi. In Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, she is “fractionally faster and a more accomplished fighter than her fellow assassins.” After being spared by Sub-Zero, she assists him in defeating Quan Chi. After expressing her desire to escape the Netherealm with him, she is shot in the back by Shinnok. It is later revealed in Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition the attack destroyed her human form and that her essence was then banished as punishment for her betrayal. After years of torture, Sareena escapes the Netherealm in her human appearance before Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. Sareena encounters the younger Sub-Zero; the brother of the one she met before. Feeling he owed her for helping his brother, Sub-Zero grants her sanctuary with the Lin Kuei back on Earthrealm.
In Mortal Kombat: Armageddon Sareena follows Sub-Zero into the Netherealm, saving him from being killed by Noob Saibot and Smoke. After the battle, Sareena loses her human form and returns to her true demon self. She is later ambushed by Quan Chi, who returns her to human form and convinces her to join him, despite her resistance.


Jade first appears in MKII as a non-playable hidden character (NHC) who randomly appears onscreen with clues on how to locate her. She was a green palette swap of Kitana and she did not become playable until UMK3 in which her backstory was as a fellow Edenian and childhood friend of Kitana. She once served as Shao Kahn’s personal assassin along with Kitana and Mileena. During Shao Kahn’s invasion, Jade was ordered by Kahn to capture Kitana but turned against him to side with her friend and the Earth warriors. Sometime after MK: Deadly Alliance, she witnesses the resurrection and capture of Kitana and her allies by Onaga, under an enslaving spell. In MK: Deception, Jade rescues Sindel from prison in Edenia. She and Sindel escape to Outworld, but Jade attempts to seek justice against homeland traitor Tanya.
In Deception, she appears in Konquest mode in the Living Forest as having lost a battle with Shujinko over an unknown object he requires, but she is later unable to recognize him because he has since aged considerably. She orders Shujinko to bring Rain to her, paying him when he obliges. Jade kills Rain.


Mileena was brought to life by Shang Tsung using Tarkatan race’s physiology to be a clone of Edenian Princess Kitana for the evil Emperor Shao Kahn. Mileena looks just like Kitana when her mask is on (especially since Kitana is also often wearing a mask), but when it is off, her true, flawed visage is exposed. She despises Kitana, and feels that it is her own right to rule Edenia as princess in her place. Her fondest wish is to kill her “sister”, and claim her existence for her own. Something of an opportunist, Mileena will make use of any chance to seize power that comes within her grasp.


Frost was discovered by Sub Zero. Impressed by her skills, including abilities almost exactly like his, Sub Zero takes her as his protégé. Sub-Zero was unable to teach her humility. When Raiden requests Sub-Zero’s assistance in defeating the Deadly Alliance, Sub-Zero brings Frost along with him for assistance. The MK Deadly Alliance Konquest mode revels that Sonya had a brief fight with Frost. Desiring to become Grand Master of the clan herself, she immobilizes Sub-Zero with a freezing blast and tears the Dragon Medallion (an artifact which enhanced Sub-Zero’s abilities, as well as the symbol of Lin Kuei leadership) from his chest. Without the strength and discipline required to control the medallion’s power, she is consumed by her own freezing ability. Sub-Zero buries her next to the ancestors of Cryomancers in Outworld, forgiving her. In MK: Unchained, Frost was awakened and realized she was still in Outworld, believing that Sub-Zero had taken the Dragon Medallion from her. She returned to the Lin Kuei temple in Earthrealm with the intention of killing only Sub-Zero, but killed many of his clansmen and became delusional to the point of seeing him everywhere. Sub-Zero then froze her and placed her body in a shrine deep in the temple. Frost remained frozen until MK: Armageddon Konquest mode, when Taven entered the Lin Kuei temple; he breaks open the block of ice and releases her. At first, she thinks that he is Sub-Zero and battles him; afterward she realizes Taven is not Sub-Zero and runs off embarrassed.

Sheeva first appeared in MK3 as a Shokan who served as Sindel’s personal protector. She is insulted at Kahn’s appointment of the centaur Motaro to lead his extermination squads during his invasion of Earthrealm, since the Shokan and the Centaurs are mortal enemies. After Kahn’s defeat by the Earth warriors, Sheeva kills Motaro outside of Kano’s cell. Kano offers her assistance in assassinating Kahn if Sheeva frees him, but Kano betrays her and informs Kahn of her plot, leading Kahn to stab her from behind with a sword.
Sheeva, whose name was derived from Shiva, a Hindu deity of destruction, was introduced into the series due to fan requests for a playable version of Goro. While she has Goro’s offensive moves, she is female so that she would be smaller in size and therefore the same height as the other fighters.


Nitara, the only vampire in the Mortal Kombat series, spends a long time trying to find a mysterious orb that binds her realm to Outworld before actually discovering its location. The orb, however, was inaccessible to her, submerged under molten lava. At one point she tricks the Outer World Investigation Agency agent Cyrax into retrieving the orb after sending Reptile to attack him. Nitara smashes the orb into pieces on the floor, separating her realm from Outworld at last. The ordeal knocks her unconscious, but when she awakens, she is home. She then makes it her mission to protect the realm’s fragile stability.
During the events of MK: Armageddon, mass genocides of her people begin to occur in her realm. Nitara is sent by her people’s elders to a crater in Edenia to find a prophesied force of great power that could destroy the murderer’s blade. While traveling there, she comes upon the demon Ashrah, the blade’s possessor. To protect the rest of her race, Nitara lures Ashrah out of her realm and continues to Edenia, planning to bring her attacker to the Edenian weapon where it may be used against her.

Sonya Blade

Lieutenant Sonya Blade is one of the main heroes of the MK series. She is a member of an elite United States Special Forces unit and later also the Outer World Investigation Agency. Her impulsiveness is catalyzed by her superior and good friend Major Jackson “Jax” Briggs. Sonya represents a very emancipated and headstrong woman, but for all her stubbornness and pride, she deeply cares about the lives of her friends and comrades. She has a long-standing enmity with the thug Kano, who stands for everything Sonya despises.


Sindel was the queen of Edenia before Shao Kahn merged the realm with Outworld. Unwilling to serve under his oppressive rule after Kahn kills her husband King Jerrod during battle, she takes her own life. In order to merge Earthrealm and Outworld and thus start an invasion, Kahn (with the assistance of Shang Tsung) revives her on Earth, turning her into his loyalist queen with no memory of her past. After Kahn’s defeat, Sindel’s daughter, Kitana, tells her mother about her true past, causing Sindel to rebel against Kahn. With Edenia no longer part of Outworld, Sindel takes her rightful place on the throne. However, the forces of Shinnok soon storm the palace, capturing her, but Shinnok is then defeated by Earth warriors saving the peaceful realm. Edenia is again invaded, this time by the Dragon King, Onaga, who had resurrected Kitana and her slain Earthrealm allies and placed them under his control. Sindel is once again confined inside her own prison, this time guarded by her own daughter, but is freed by Jade.

Li Mei

Li Mei’s village was forced into slavery to help construct Shang Tsung’s palace around the Soulnado, which had been a long-time legend of her people. In attacking Kano, she gains the attention of Quan Chi, who promises her freedom if she wins a tournament. Around this time she befriends Shujinko, captured by Kano during his 40 year quest for the Kamidogu. Shujinko offers to train her even though he feels that her chances in the Deadly Alliance’s tournament are slim. She later journeys to a nearby forest where she is attacked by Moloch and Drahmin. She escaped through the trees as Shang Tsung came and formed an alliance with the Oni.
Her ending in Deadly Alliance depicted her winning Quan Chi’s tournament and “earning” the right to be imprisoned forever in one of the Dragon King’s soldiers’ bodies. In Deception Bo’ Rai Cho rescues her from this fate. However, he is apparently only partially successful, and Li Mei takes on some aspects of these ancient warriors. It is revealed that, upon the return of the Dragon King, she is to be his queen. Her ending results in her willfully becoming the Dragon Queen. In MK: Armageddon’s Konquest mode, Li Mei fights Shinnok in the Netherealm. She begins to gain the upper hand on him until Taven (who is unaware that Shinnok had turned evil) appears and makes her go away. Shinnok later reveals that this was all created as a test for Taven.


Ashrah is a demon from the Netherealm with the appearance of an elegant and humble woman, dressed in a white outfit with a large hat attached with a veil covering her face. She was once a member of Quan Chi’s Brotherhood of Shadow, which worshiped the fallen Elder God Shinnok. One day, Ashrah refuses to carry out one of Quan Chi’s orders. In response, he sends her sister to kill her. While escaping in the Netherealm, she finds a holy sword known as a Kris that cleanses her spirit of evil with each kill. What she doesn’t know is that the blade is actually the “Datusha”, a mystical vampire-slaying weapon that corrupts its wielder with the false belief that they are using it to fight vampires and other demons. She searches for Noob Saibot, whom she considers to be a powerful demon, because doing so would enable her to complete her ascension.
Ashrah’s MK: Armageddon bio explains that, after slaying a multitude of demons in the Netherealm, she transcends that plane of hell and emerges in an unfamiliar realm, surrounded by celestial beings. The celestial beings make her into their chosen warrior – who would ascend, becoming “an angel of light”, once she uses the weapon to “consume the darkness”. After submitting to their will, Ashrah is transported to Vaeternus to start slaying the vampire race, whom she sees as vile beings. She is defeated by Nitara, but then escapes to Edenia seeking Blaze’s power in order to destroy Nitara and gain ascension. She also assumes that destroying Ermac would help her gain ascension, because his powers are common in the Neatherrealm even though he is a force of good. Ever since they met, Ashrah has always despised, and may be envious, of Ermac.


In the mountains of Afghanistan, Kira disguises herself as a man, and sells weapons to terrorist organizations. During one such transaction in a cave, her gender is revealed, and she has no choice but to fight her way out. Emerging victorious, she encounters Kabal, who was waiting outside to behold the victor. He decides to reconstitute the Black Dragon, and as Kira’s cold and calculated moves remind him of the Red Dragon, the organization from which the Black Dragon split. Since the Black Dragon did not have this presence, Kabal offers to make Kira his first recruit. Accepting, Kira devotes herself to her new organization. She then goes with Kabal to New York City to recruit Kobra. According to Kira’s MK: Deception ending, Kabal makes her fight Kobra to the death as a test; Kira wins. In her MK: Armageddon ending, someone else kills Kobra. Kira uses her power to restore Kobra, but Kobra drains all her power.
