How Raiden joined the Tourney

Raiden is the eternal God of Thunder, protector of Earthrealm, and arguably one of the most powerful characters in all of Mortal Kombat. After the second defeat of Shinnok, he ascended to the status of Elder God. Being a god, he possesses many supernatural abilities, such as the ability to teleport, control lightning and fly. As a god, he is used to thinking in terms of eternity rather than normal human lifespans, and so he has a radically different outlook on life. This is not to say he is incapable of understanding human values and psyches.

After the Netherrealm War ended with Raiden sealing Shinnok in his amulet, Raiden and his forces prepare to send the amulet to the Elder Gods. A shark pirate named Jonathan Jones steals the amulet and leaves a letter saying if he wishes to get the amulet back, he must defeat him.

Special Moves

Lightning (Neutral)

Raiden sends a bolt of lightning flying at his opponent. It can be charged for more damage, and this charge can also be dash cancelled.

Electric Fly (Side)

Raiden flies at his opponent and pushes them against the wall.

Rising Thunder (Up)

Raiden rushes upwards to strike his opponent with a lightning-charged punch.

Electrocute (Down)

Raiden grabs his opponent and holds them in the air while electrocuting them, then the electric charge sends the opponent flying across the arena.

Transplant (Hyper Smash)

Based on his second Mortal Kombat 2011 Fatality. Raiden teleports behind the opponent and rips out the brain and heart from the torso. He then charges them and puts them back into place. The head begins to glow, and blows up, then the torso explodes shortly afterwards, leaving behind just the victim's lower-half.

Bug Eyes (Final Smash)

Based on his first Mortal Kombat X Fatality. Raiden grabs his opponent by the face, releasing powerful currents of electricity into their head, causing their eyeballs to pop out, still hanging by the optic nerves. The electric charge becomes so powerful their head pops off their neck and as it falls down, Raiden destroys it with a final blast of lightning.

Victory Animations

  1. Raiden floats in midair and charges himself with lightning, then says "May the Elder Gods save you."
  2. Raiden brings his arms to his waqist, and sparks lightning into the air and has a beam of lightning between his hands then says "Do not challenge a god!"
  3. Raiden brings light to his raised hands, then holds a lightning orb and says "Do not provoke a god."
