  • At the beginning, Liu Kang is more concerned with avenging his brother than stopping Outworld. Raiden helps break him out of this way of thinking by reminding Liu he is not responsible for Chan's death. Chan may have died fighting Shang Tsung, yes, but it was his choice to fight in the first place. It ends up serving as a "Eureka!" Moment, when Liu remembers his brother didn't blame him for his death.
    Raiden: Every man chooses his own destiny. Chan knew that.
