How Shinnok joined the Tourney

Shinnok is considered one of the most evil beings in Mortal Kombat. A vengeful and powerful fallen Elder God, Shinnok appeared in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, Mortal Kombat 4 /Mortal Kombat Gold, and Mortal Kombat X as the main antagonist. He has also made an appearance in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, seemingly leading the side of evil.

Unlike Shao Kahn, Shinnok relies less on brute strength and fear-mongering, but more on magical powers and ancient artifacts. He is the ruler of the Netherrealm, possessing millions of years' worth of knowledge and power. He can impersonate any other beings of his choosing, as well as to transform into an immense demon. He also possesses extreme cunning, as well as the ability to manipulate events through others. For example, he had Quan Chi convince Shao Kahn to merge Earthrealm with Outworld against the Elder Gods' will. As a result, both realms were severely weakened and left vulnerable to invasion by the Netherrealm.

Shinnok demands unwavering faith and loyalty from his followers and will not hesitate to kill anyone who doubts, challenges, or even represents a potential threat to him. He may even be more brutal and heartless than Shao Kahn.

One day, on his war against Earthrealm, he stumbled upon the Fire Nation and its current lord, Zuko. He intended to use the young Fire Lord as his pawn until they found the Jinsei, then he would have to kill him.

Summoned Fiend (Side)

Using his magical powers, Shinnok summons a large skeletal hand to grab and throw his opponent.

Skeletal Break (Up)

Using a bone spear, Shinnok jumps into the air swinging it three times.

Mimicry (Down)

Shinnok steals a single ability from his current opponent (such as Sub-Zero's ice ball, Mario's Fireball, Sol's Gun Flame and Johnny Cage's Shadow Kick), which he stores for later usage. While the power is stored, the runes on his outfit will glow yellow instead of red.

The Grinder (Hyper Smash)

Based on his first Mortal Kombat X Fatality. Shinnok summons two skeletal hands around his opponent, and grabs the opponent with them. He proceeds by making the hands twist the opponent torso, before ripping it off. Finally he smashes both the torso and the lower body by clapping both hands. The head can be seen rolling towards Shinnok afterwards.

Flick Trick (Final Smash)

Shinnok summons a skeletal hand then proceeds to grab his opponent, then places the thumb of the skeleton hand under the opponent's jaw and flicks the head upwards. He then catches the head and looks at it as the skeletal hand disappears and the opponent's headless body falls down.
