!Introduced in ''Film/MortalKombat'' the film

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

* BadassNormal: 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.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: First named black dude, at any rate.
* CanonForeigner: He's an original character created for the film.
* MauveShirt: He's established as a fellow martial artist with mutual respect for Johnny Cage, but falls to Goro in the tournament semifinals.
* SacrificialLamb: He exists solely to show the main cast (and the audience) how badass Goro is.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: The look on his face when about to square off against Goro says it all.
* WorthyOpponent: In the novelization, Goro shows respect for him, congratulating him for the fight before killing him.
* YourSoulIsMine: As well as give Shang Tsung a major KickTheDog moment by devouring his soul.

[[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.
