Here are the characters who debuted in ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon Mortal Kombat: Armageddon]]''.

Every other character, including Blaze, can be found at their respective sheets.




-->'''Voiced by:''' Tom Taylor

->When Armageddon was foretold by the Edenian sorceress Delia, she and her husband the protector God Argus put their two sons Taven and Daegon into suspended sleep in order to fight and defeat Blaze when the time comes and prevent Armageddon. However, Blaze's capture by Onaga's holy men forced the younger broter Daegon to be woken up prematurely. Incensed by what was to become of them and the true nature of the quest, Daegon enlisted the help of Shinnok (Who manipulated the Edenian into believing that their parents favored Taven) to kill his parents. Daegon then formed the Red Dragon Clan with the intent of locating Blaze. Through the decades, Daegon used the DNA of his protector dragon Caro to create human/dragon hybrid soldiers, and took the gifts that were meant to aid both him and Taven in their quests.

->When Taven eventually awoke, Red Dragon soldiers were repeatedly sent to hound him during his quest, and the two brothers eventually clashed swords prior to the Battle of Armageddon, where Daegon was soundly defeated.

* AncientConspiracy: Started one of his own by establishing the Red Dragon Clan.
* BadassLongcoat: Though it appears to be a cape that has been modified to be a coat.
* BaldOfEvil
* BigBad[=/=]BigBadWannabe: Zigzags between these tropes in that while he is the primary antagonist of Konquest mode and Taven's Archenemy, but he is also merely a pawn that is being used by [[GreaterScopeVillain Shinnok]] to advance his own goals.
* {{Cain|AndAbel}}: To Taven's Abel.
* TheCameo: So far, he has made two additional appearances in the new timeline.
** He appears in Kenshi's ''Mortal Kombat X'' ending, and is killed in vengeance by him, Takeda and Taven for murdering Suchin and his own parents.
** Before that, in Videogame/MortalKombat9 he, along with Kenshi, Frost, Sareena, and Reiko, can be sometimes be seen in the background of The Pit and Shang Tsung's Garden.
** However, he has shown himself in the MKX comics. [[spoiler: Being handed the blind swordsman who betrayed your clan to you by an armless Shokan has that kind of effect]].
* CounterAttack: Daegon's specialty is dodging out of the way of an enemy's strikes to deliver his own.
* {{Cult}}: The Red Dragon is described as such in the tie-in Comics to ''Mortal Kombat X''.
* DualWielding
* EmbarrassingNickname: Originally named "Doug."
* EvilAllAlong: At least in Taven's eyes.
* [[BeardOfEvil Goatee Of Evil]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Evil. Has one over his eye.
* {{Monochromatic Eye|s}}: His right eye.
** {{Prophet Eye|s}}
* SealedEvilInACan: Subversion in that he was a decent person prior to being put into suspended animation and only became a villain after being prematurely awakened and subsequently corrupted by Shinnok.
* SelfMadeOrphan: Apparently killed Argus and Delia upon awakening because Shinnok told him that [[TheUnfavorite they favored Taven over him]].
--> ''"So you know. Yes, I killed them. I had to! Lord Shinnok warned me that they had decided to assist you! (...) With the very weapons Father gave us to use against Blaze. And now I will use them to [[spoiler:destroy you. Fight]]!"''
** [[spoiler:Subverted in his ending, where it is revealed that both of them [[FakingTheDead feigned their deaths]], ready to punish Daegon for his misdeeds.]]
* SpikesOfVillainy
* VisionaryVillain: Subverted. He goes to such lengths, including the creation of the Red Dragon Clan and seeking to kill his brother or anyone else interested, yet it is for the very simple goal of becoming Edenia's protector god and lacking any other ideological goal. However, the Videogame/MortalKombatX comics do imply that that the portrayal of Daegon in the new timeline will be a straighter example.
* WalkingShirtlessScene


-->'''Voiced by:''' Phil Ridarelli

->As Armageddon drew near, Blaze sounded the call to awaken the participants of the quest set forth by Delia and Argus. Taven was awoken with no knowledge of the true nature of the quest. Taven traversed Earthrealm, meeting various Kombatants and obtaining a sacred set of armor to help him on his quest. Eventually, he encountered Daegon, who was awoken before him and intended to kill him and claim the prize for himself. After traveling through Neatherrealm and Outworld in hopes of finding more answers to his quest, he went to Edenia.

->After defeating Scorpion, Taven encountered Daegon again, who revealed that he killed their parents and took Taven's intended sword. Taven defeated Daegon and was then approached by Blaze, who revealed that he is the one that is meant to stop Armageddon by defeating Blaze in Mortal Kombat. Accepting the inevitable after the quest has destroyed his family, Blaze rose the pyramid of Argus from the ground and fought Blaze as the Battle of Armageddon raged below.

* [[CainAndAbel Abel]]: To Daegon's Cain.
* AwfulTruth: His brother [[spoiler:founded the Red Dragon clan]] and was trying to [[spoiler:kill him]] all along.
--> '''Taven''': ''"Why are you here?"'' [at the [[spoiler:Red Dragon caverns]]]
--> '''Daegon''': ''"This is my stronghold."''
--> '''Taven''': ''"Your stronghold? And these warriors...?"''
--> '''Daegon''': ''"I founded [[spoiler:the Red Dragon Clan]] many ages ago."''
--> '''Taven''': ''"There must be some misunderstanding. Your soldiers have been hunting me."''
--> '''Daegon''': ''"There is no misunderstanding. For years, my clan has been infiltrating every corner of Earthrealm searching for you. Scouting parties were placed in locations where you were likely to appear. At our parents' temple, for instance."'' (...)
--> '''Taven''': ''"Why would you send your clan after me?"''
--> '''Daegon''': ''"Isn't it obvious? [[spoiler:I intend to kill you]]."''
--> '''Taven''': ''"What!?"''
--> '''Daegon''': ''"The prize will be mine, Taven. [[spoiler:I will not risk losing it to you]]."''
* BadassBeard
* BigDamnHeroes
* TheCameo: He is the man that Caro sent Takeda and Kenshi to awaken in Takeda's ''Mortal Kombat X'' ending, along with Kenshi's own where he joins them in killing Daegon.
* DeadpanSnarker: Has a few moments of this during Konquest mode.
* {{Determinator}}: Konquest Mode ending. Despite [[NiceJobBreakingItHero inadvertently hastening the onset of Armageddon]], he makes it his duty as a god to prevent Armageddon.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Originally named "Bob."
* FightingYourFriend: After his fight against [[spoiler:the Red Dragon mooks]], [[spoiler:Fujin]] appears before him, and asks him to return to Edenia. Taven refuses the order, because he wants to know why [[spoiler:the Red Dragon]] tried to stop him twice. Cue the fight.
--> '''[[spoiler:Fujin]]''': ''"Stop, Taven!"''
--> '''Taven''': ''"[[spoiler:Fujin]]!"''
--> '''[[spoiler:Fujin]]''': ''"I sense that there's more significance to your actions here than it's apparent. I suggest you to return to Edenia immediately".''
--> '''Taven''': ''"I would like some information first. The Red Dragon have attacked me twice. I'd like to know the reason, and I'm not leaving until I find it!"''
--> '''[[spoiler:Fujin]]''': ''"Such ignorance! I will stop you -- by force if necessary."''
--> '''Taven''': ''"I respect you, [[spoiler:Fujin]]. You are a friend to my family. But I will not leave."''
--> '''[[spoiler:Fujin]]''': ''"Then you leave me no choice. [[LetsYouAndHimFight Fight!]]"''
** And then, after defeating him:
--> ''"I didn't want to do that. [[spoiler:Fujin]] has been an ally for many ages. (...)"''
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: After defeating Daegon in Konquest, he takes his stolen sword back. Changing to his weapon style in the final fight with Blaze reveals... the same damn sword he's been using the entire game. [[{{WMG}} Maybe it changes shape depending on the user]]?
* FailureHero: [[spoiler:He is unable to save his parents, his guardian dragon, is forced to kombat his power-mad brother and to top it off, he failed to stop Armageddon with Shao Kahn being the canon victor]].
* TheHero: In Armageddon's Konquest mode, which serves as the game's story mode with him as point-of-view character and on a important quest to halt the end of all things.
* IdiotHero: Is pretty gullible all in all. Some of it can be attributed to [[ColdSleepColdFuture how long he's been asleep]].
* KnightInSourArmor: He has grown disillusioned with his quest and cares nothing about achieving full godhood. However, he recognizes that quitting is not a viable option due to Daegon's [[FaceHeelTurn corruption]] following his premature awakening and thus continues on.
* PhraseCatcher: How many times to other characters respond to something Taven says with "No, Taven!"?
* [[spoiler:PhysicalGod: At the end of Konquest.]]
* SealedGoodInACan: He was trapped inside a cavern for a very long time in order to fulfill
* SpannerInTheWorks: His quest ends up derailing ''several'' villains' plans. For example, he stalls [[spoiler:Sektor and his Tekunin]] long enough for [[spoiler:the Special Forces]] to attack, helps fends off [[spoiler:Noob and Smoke]]'s attack on [[spoiler:the Lin Kuei temple]] (including [[spoiler:saving Sub-Zero's life]]), and breaks [[spoiler:Quan Chi]]'s hold over [[spoiler:Sareena]].

* [[spoiler:FakingTheDead]]: At least, according to Daegon's ending.
* GodInHumanForm
* TheGodsMustBeLazy: First wanted to kill the heroes to prevent Armageddon until his wife convinced him to do something a bit more complicated. Then he stood around for centuries and did nothing to protect Edenia, the realm he is supposed to protect, from Shao Kahn or any of the other threats.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Wanted to kill both good and evil kombatants until his wife pointed out some were undeserving of death. Later did nothing to protect Edenia from the evils that befell. Supposedly benevolent.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Has a reaction like this in Taven's non-canonical ending, where instead of halting Armageddon by stripping the combatants of their power, Blaze's death made them all ''stronger'' than before.
* {{Narrator}}: Of ''Armageddon''.
* OffWithHisHead: How he was "killed", according to Kenshi's ''Mortal Kombat X'' ending.
* PhysicalGod

* InTheHood: Her hood [[HiddenEyes obscures her]] [[TheFaceless upper face]].
* PsychicPowers: Delia possesses the power to see into the future.

* {{Stripperiffic}}: Of the {{Underboobs}} variety. It's otherwise a rather elegant dress.

* TheCameo: Appears in Takeda's ending along with Taven in ''Mortal Kombat X''.

* RedEyesTakeWarning: Subverted, as he appears to be a benevolent dragon.

[[folder:Wu Lae]]
!!Wu Lae
-> The leader of the Tengu clan Taven encounters in his quest in Arctika. Said clan is a rival clan of the Lin Kuei.

* CoolMask: Wears a [[ silver one]].
* MiniBoss: He is not even his own playable character in the arcade mode, merely a minor boss fought by Taven in Konquest.
* TheRival: Would appear to be a lesser one to Sub-Zero. The Tengu, Snow Ninja, and Lin Kuei are apparently ''not'' on good terms.
* SinisterScythe: His weapon of choice.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Even though Taven spares his life, the player still has the option of performing a fatality on him (which is required to unlock [[CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption a bonus item]]).
