Quan and Shinnok

As we know it, Quan and Shinnok had got their heads decapitated in Storymode of MKX.
So my question is, will they play part in any sort of way in MK11? Could they do some merging since Shinnok is somewhat still alive or they can have a character wear the heads like shrunken heads around their waist or on a staff?

What are your thoughts on these two?

RE: Quan and Shinnok

I guess it all depends. Shinnok appeared to be in somewhat of a vegetative state after being dismembered and spread to the winds by Raiden. Also, I can't see Liu Kang and Kitana wanting the old guard trying to nose his way back to power(could depend on just how loyal they are to shinnok), so I don't really see shinnok being a factor. Once again, though, there are so many variables to consider.

As far as Quan Chi goes...well, we know Shinnok can't die. But what happens do a denizen of the netherrealm when they die? Do they just return to the netherrealm? If so...i gotta believe Quan Chi stumbles upon Shang Tsung and gets the ball rolling on the Dragon King saga.

Or they could go an entirely different direction...but those are my thoughts.


There are bigger sacrifices one might be asked to make than going a little mad.

RE: Quan and Shinnok

What I want to see is Shinnok's head being attached to Quan Chi's body. That would be hilarious since Shinnok thinks himself to be superior; placing his head onto his minion would be insulting.

... here's your Subzero, now plain zero.

RE: Quan and Shinnok

The MKX story gave us pretty much solid clues that Quan Chi's demise has been much too long-overdue. He was barely even treated like a true villain; rather, he was given a role of a well-familiar object of contempt and disdain, with everyone mocking him, ridiculing him, or finishing him off with a single blow since his very first appearance. He failed to outshine his rather captivating appearance in MK9 - in which he wasn't even supposed to be a lead villain! His "despicable" status culminating in Scorpion's chapter (after Scorpion learns of Quan Chi's treachery), he was finally killed off, presumably with countless MK fans cheering at the scene. The NRS likely believed too many fans wanted Quan Chi gone at last, and they gave them what they wanted. So, while he may not be gone for actual good, we certainly won't be seeing Quan Chi in the next MK.

I'm less certain about Shinnok, but he kinda could be revived as one of Liu Kang's and Kitana's second-in-commands, and we may witness his return together with revived Shao Khan. Unlike Quan Chi, he was, even in his improved MKX version, for the most part unexplored as a character, with all too little screen time in the story and a rather simplistic plot. I wish he had his redemption through his service to Liu Kang, against whom he could possibly conspire and fight to take his throne back. In the more likely case, though, Shinnok will just be cut off, he being even more disliked and disparaged than Quan Chi (especially by fans, whose preference is, in essence, the chief condition for a character's continuous presence in MK).

Look, now Baraka has grown hair and beard! Shit, the time does fly...

That is a good question. I know in the series in the long run death doesn't mean anything with characters at will of the creators; in the short run they stay dead/not appear for a game or two. But I'm curious storywise. Onaga was supposedly powerful because of his ability to resurrect his army. Netherealm rulers like Shinnok, if their warriors die, just goes back to the Netherealm, what is there to prevent the rulers from sending them back. Especially now MK is less about the tournament but more invasion. MK9 was focused on the tournament feature in MK1-3, MKX more to stop Shinnok invading.

I think for the immediate future/games Shinnok and Quan Chi either not appear/stay dead/ noncritical role, but they'll be back full capacity later on.

RE: Quan and Shinnok

Does anyone really know why both Quan Chi and Shinnok have the distinct grey skin? I think it's because they have lived for millennia and it's a side effect from magic and inhabiting the Netherrealm, for aeons. This would change any person. They could be compared to, and remind me of, a species of (humanoid) 'Alien Greys'.

RE: Quan and Shinnok

If they end up using Liu and Kitana as Neatherrealm lords i can see Shinnoks head be displayes in the throne room since Raiden dropped it off at the end of X.

Quan i can see being torturned in thr lower plains by Oni.
