Introduced in Mortal Kombat the film

    Art Lean 
Portrayed by: Kenneth Edwards

  • 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: First named black dude, at any rate.
  • Canon Foreigner: He's an original character created for the film.
  • Mauve Shirt: He's established as a fellow martial artist with mutual respect for Johnny Cage, but falls to Goro in the tournament semifinals.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: He exists solely to show the main cast (and the audience) how badass Goro is.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: The look on his face when about to square off against Goro says it all.
  • 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.
