Introduced in Mortal Kombat the film
- Badass Normal: He far outclasses most Earthrealm warriors, making it past the extremely big stairway without resting. It is mentioned in the novelization that he was granted the right to fight Goro because he was the one with the most victories up to that point.
- Black Dude Dies First
- Canon Foreigner
- Mauve Shirt
- Sacrificial Lamb: He exists solely to show the main cast (and the audience) how badass Goro is.
- Worthy Opponent: In the novelization, Goro shows respect for him, congratulating him for the fight before killing him.
- Your Soul Is Mine: As well as give Shang Tsung a major Kick the Dog moment by devouring his soul.
- Ascended Extra: 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, he's named Chan, actually appears (in flashback and spirit form) and serves as Liu's motivation for entering the tournament.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: As brave as he was, poor Chan didn't stand a chance against Shang Tsung.
- Doomed by Canon: His death is Liu Kang's motive to put Shang Tsung to rest.
- Finishing Stomp: How Shang Tsung finishes him.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Chan or Chen?
- Your Soul Is Mine: As with pretty much all of Shang Tsung's victims in the movie, Chan suffers this fate. His form is used in a Shape Shifter Guilt Trip against Liu Kang during the final battle, but Liu Kang sees right through it.
