The eagerly anticipated release of Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms has brought with it an unexpected animated crossover! This time Scorpion has met his match as the ninja spectre finds himself in the clutches of a popular meme before the main feature. Watch and learn:

In the first Mortal Kombat Legends it was Scorpion who sprung forth from the Warner Bros logo to drag Daffy Duck to Hell in a humorous crossover between the Scorpion's Revenge star and a WB icon. This time it's Scooby-Doo's Shaggy Rogers who emerges to turn the tables on the acrobatic martial artist.

Blazing with green energy and glowing eyes: this super-powered Shaggy is a reference to the "Ultra Instinct Shaggy" meme from 2017 that crossed over the beatnik amateur sleuth with the ki-powered fighting of Dragon Ball Super. The joke led fans to start a petition to include Shaggy in Mortal Kombat 11.

Series co-creator Ed Boon reacted to the animated encounter that will inevitably haunt his feed for years to come via Twitter: "HOLY KRAP! You people were right all along! ???? #ShaggyKonfirmed" He also joked about the topic trending in the United States.
