->In Mortal Kombat (2011), Shao Kahn is hinted at being under the influence of the One Being as he stands atop the pyramid, prepared to begin Armageddon and destroy the realms. This event, in the second timeline, is hastened to the final events of Mortal Kombat 3, when Shao Kahn has almost merged Earthrealm with Outworld, and at the same time he is ending all things in existence. However, the Elder Gods intervene and destroy Shao Kahn, thereby halting whatever plans the One Being may have had.

In the Mortal Kombat X comic series, it is revealed that the six Kamidogu, now daggers in the rebooted timeline, have all tasted the blood of the One Being and its essence lives within them, serving as the source of the daggers' Blood Magik.

In Shinnok's Mortal Kombat X ending, the fallen Elder God succeeds in re-merging all the realms to reawaken the One Being, allowing it to destroy all of reality upon the One Being's revival and devoured the Elder Gods.

* {{Badass}}: If you can kick the ass of someone who could take the combined power of Raiden, Quan Chi, and Shang Tsung without a scratch, you'd qualify.



* Badass: Shao Kahn was afraid to fight him instead, he simply poisoned him like a coward.

->As a youth, Shujinko dreamed of fighting in Mortal Kombat and defeating Shang Tsung. His chance for glory came when an entity known as Damashi, an envoy of the Elder Gods, was looking for a mortal with the courage and strength to find the six Kamidogu. Shujinko accepted, and, through the decades, looked for them. Armed with a power bestowed by Damashi to observe and wield the abiltiies of various kombatants, Shujinko traversed many realms and met many kombatants before obtaining the six Kamidogu. Shujinko however, had been deceived.

* BossArenaIdiocy: Both played straight and subverted. If you try to tackle Onaga head-on, he'll probably come across as a SNKBoss. However, if you walk into one of the six Kamidogu located in the corners of his arena, Onaga will immediately be knocked out of any attack he was attempting and will kneel over in a pain for a second, opening him up for a free combo. However, the Kamidogu don't regenerate between rounds, so you only get six shots in all of opening up a can of whup-ass on Onaga before you have to resort to fighting him fairly. Also, his arena contains a {{death trap}}; you can't knock him into the spikes, but he ''can'' knock ''you'' into them if you're by the edge.
