King Gorbak chose Kintaro to succeed his own son as Ruler Supreme of Shao Kahn’s Armies. Though he was reputedly stronger and more agile than Goro, he met defeat in his first Tournament.
Number 9: Goro
Said to be one of the most feared Shokan Princes ever to have lived, Goro was once trained by Shang Tsung and was reigning champion of the Mortal Kombat Tournament for 500 years.
Number 8: Moloch
The Oni Destroyer is infamous for his massive strength and terrible rage. This powerful demon’s exploits caught the attention of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung, each of whom employed his services.
Number 7: Shang Tsung
As Chief Shadow Priest to the Emperor of Outworld, Tsung enjoyed a position of influence and great power within Outowrld. Kahn chose him to conquer Earthrealm, which, unfortunately for him, was where he failed – twice. As half of the Deadly Alliance, he was involved in killing Raiden and everybody else prior to Onaga’s return.
Number 6: Quan Chi
The other half of the Deadly Alliance is reputed to be the oldest and most powerful sorcerer in the MK Universe. He handily defeated Shang Tsung after the two finished off Raiden. Before that, after tricking Sub-Zero into stealing Shinnok’s Amulet, he had the gall to double cross the former Elder god and keep the powerful artifact for himself. .
Number 5: Shao Kahn
The ruthless Emperor of Outworld is a symbol of tyranny and oppression throughout the MK Universe. He’s subjugated and enslaved entire realms and species, the ones he chose not to drive to the brink of extinction altogether, that is.
Number 4: Onaga
The Dragon King is said to be the one true ruler of Outworld. The combined might of Shang Tsung, Quan Chi, and Raiden was barely enough to slow him down and even Shao Kahn wouldn’t face him one-on-one. He wielded the power to resurrect the dead and from beyond the grave he manipulated Shujinko into collecting the Kamidogu.
Number 3: Shinnok
As an Elder god Shinnok was one of the oldest and most powerful beings in all reality. Years after his 2nd war against the Elder gods went bust, he found himself leading the forces of darkness, which included Shang Tsung, Quan Chi, Shao Kahn, and Onaga.
Number 2: Lucifer
The ruler of the Netherealm when Shinnok was first defeated, this powerful being managed to keep the fallen elder god imprisoned for many thousands of years. It took the power of both Shinnok and Quan Chi to overthrow him.
Number 1: The One Being
The One Being was nearly all-powerful. The Elder gods had to unite and enhance their powers with the Kamidogu in order to defeat him. Afterward, his influence lived on, subtly manipulating the likes of Onaga, Shao Kahn and Shinnok to work towards recombining the realms so that he might one day return.
