[[folder:Art Lean]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Kenneth Edwards

[[folder:Chan Kang]]
-> '''Portrayed by:''' Steven Ho

* AscendedExtra: [[AllThereInTheManual According to his bio from the first game]], Liu Kang has a brother named Chow and his whereabouts are unknown... and that's all we hear about him. In the movie, [[SpellMyNameWithAnS he's named Chan]], actually appears (in flashback [[spoiler:and spirit]] form) and serves as Liu's motivation for entering the tournament.
* CurbStompBattle: As brave as he was, poor Chan didn't stand a chance against Shang Tsung.
* DoomedByCanon: His death is Liu Kang's motive to put Shang Tsung to rest.
* FinishingStomp: How Shang Tsung finishes him.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Chan or Chen?
* YourSoulIsMine: As with pretty much all of Shang Tsung's victims in the movie, Chan suffers this fate. His form is used in a ShapeShifterGuiltTrip against Liu Kang during the final battle, but Liu Kang sees right through it.
