Tengu

Is there anything more about the Tengu other than what is told in MKD Konquest. Just a little curious.

Note: They are the Red Colored Clan who are similar to the Lin Kuei.

Do you mean the Tengu clan?

If so, here is what I have found:

The clan lived in the frozen lands of Arctika where they would viciously attack and kill any intruders that passed their territory. They were a rival clan of the Lin Kuei; however, they were the weaker of the two and thus feared the frost ninjas. Taven passed through Tengu-held territory and defeated their leader, who submitted and allowed the ancient Edenian to pass. Certain members of this clan did, on occasion, go rogue and become frost ninjas, who were a threat to anyone who passed the icy lands alone.

No members of the Tengu are mentioned, but the only known member of the clan is Wu Lae, who's their leader, he's a strong ninja and wears a black garment, wielding a scythe, he was ultimately defeated by Taven.

In Armageddon's Konquest mode, after defeating Wu Lae you have the option to perform a fatality on him. Doing so would unlock Kitana's Alternate Costume.

Lol, idk, I just thought it was a joke name Boon gave them. Since they would be called Penguin's.

Judging by the orange fencing padded uniform, visor and kendo stick. Hachiman, the warrior of war, could be Wu Lae's deputy of the Tengu (if he was an official character).

Tengu is the name of winged, long-nosed goblins that are the legendary, original ninja from whom all ninja are said to have sprung.
