    Great Kung Lao 
Portrayed by: Paolo Montalbán

A Shaolin monk who wins the Mortal Kombat tournament at the beginning of the series. He soon finds out this is only the beginning of his responsibilities.

  • The Ageless: Won't age until the next tournament in fifty years.
  • Ascended Extra: To main character in this show.
  • Badass Normal: Played with. Kung Lao doesn't display any supernatural powers except for visions of the future. Possibly averted by the fact he's able to resist Shang Tsung's soul sucking ability.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: He's a Shaolin Monk (technically) and a martial arts master.
  • Celibate Hero: Resoundingly averted. Clearly, his status as a Shaolin Monk doesn't require this due to being the champion of Earthrealm.
  • The Chosen One: He's Raiden's champion and the winner of Mortal Kombat. As such, it falls to him to train the next generation of fighters. Played with as he's ALREADY fulfilled his destiny for all intents and purposes.
  • Disposable Fiancé: His girlfriend Jen is killed in the second episode of the series by Scorpion.
  • Doomed by Canon: He would eventually have died by Goro's hand regardless of how the show ended.
  • The Hero: The legendary hero of the Mortal Kombat tournament.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Kung Lao chooses to be normal rather than train the next generation of warriors.
  • Legacy Character: Inverted; he's the first bearer of the name Kung Lao, and the one famous for defeating Shang Tsung centuries ago.
  • Nun Too Holy: Gender reversed version. Despite being a monk he's seen both killing people and having sex.
  • The Smart Guy: The smartest man in the team and a deep thinker.

Portrayed by: Daniel Bernhardt

A bodyguard hired for Baron Reyland of the Zhu Zin Trading Post.

  • Badass Normal: More recognizably so than Kung Lao. Still a great fighter.
  • The Big Guy: Not as talented a fighter as Kung Lao but fully capable of dealing with most throats.
  • Canon Foreigner: Is one of the original characters of the series.
  • The Charmer: Significantly better at talking to people than Kung Lao.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: His fiance left him for his brother and this informs a lot of his attitude toward romance.
  • Failure Knight: To the Reylands. He was the bodyguard of their daughter but she was killed in the second episode. The rest of the family had already been killed.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Has a pretty sour and unpleasant attitude when not trying to win people over.
  • The Lancer: Is not The Chosen One but saves him multiple times as well as serves as his (only) friend.
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Siro is always advocating the most violent solution to any given problem.
  • The Stoic: Ironic given Kung Jin is the monk. Siro is closer to Tranquil Fury given his anger problems, though.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Rum Cake.

Portrayed by: Kristanna Loken

  • Action Girl: A fairly decent one thanks to Kristanna Loken and her stunt double being quite athletic.
  • Badass Normal: Has no supernatural powers but is a talented thief.
  • Call-Forward: One episode has her in a brief relationship with a one-shot character named Tomas, who's practically an expy of Johnny Cage in looks and personality, split punch included. He dies in his introductory episode via Heroic Sacrifice. The implications are that the two hooked up offscreen during the episode and that they're Cage's ancestors.
  • Canon Foreigner: Is an original creation of the show.
  • The Chick: Is surprisingly The Heart of the team despite her status as the thief.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Loves cracking wise.
  • Fiery Redhead: Cynical, passionate, and ginger? Check, check, and check.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Granted, she didn't work for the Big Bad, but she began as a thief who was stopped by Siro.
  • The Lancer: Is arguably a better fit for this than Siro.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Beautiful and wears a form fitting leather outfit.
  • Stripperiffic: Her outfit can be summarized as a leather tank top and pants.
