Why was there a romantic relationship between Liu Kang and Kitana in MKA?
04/12/2003 02:07 PM EST
Liu and Kitana being in love was one of the reasons I hated MKA. I mean it was such a pointless and retarded thing that got on my nerves. The problems with it was Liu and Kitana are from 2 different worlds (Kitana is not supposed to be human) and Kitana is too old for him. Remember she's 10,000 years old.
Does anyone know why they did that with them?

I'm glad Liu Kang declined Kitana's offer to rule to rule together in MK4. I still hope they never get married. That does show they obviously broke up.

If Kitana is to have a new lover, I think it should be Rain b/c he's 10,000 years old and Edenian just like her (I wrote a fanfic about it 3 years ago). Anyone agree?

I thought their love affair was really endearing! They couldn't be together because Kitana had her royal obligations, and Liu Kang has his duties to stay in Earth Realm and honor his commitments as the champion of Mortal Kombat. Then with Liu's death that made it even more romantic. I think they should have run with it more and really show how much they loved one another but couldn't be together. But then again I'm a sap for a forbidden love story!

well, it was in MK:A, because it was in MK4.

she is not too old for him. They both have about equal % of their lifetime lived.

though... Liu gave up the chance to be with her in games forever, and before having to do anything, he was killed. That's kind of... sad? And it's rather good, how they can't be together, because they are from whole different realms. With Rain, what would be the point? There are more people in Edenia anyway, I'm sure, no need for it to be Rain. And, in movies, Rain was bad, not witouth memory, but saduced by the power, Emperor allowed him. These 2 in love would be breaking that, causing kind of a loophole, just to have 2 be from the same realm. For the reasons I just said, it would not be smart at all to have these 2 together?
What if Kitana's Edenian loverboy would be brought in? Not really a fighter, but can somewhat fight, and for his love, Kitana, had to fight her enemies? With her being princess.

what proves they broke up, is their staying apart after 20 years. Not their not getting marryed. I'm not sure, they both would follow the "no sex before marridge" rule.

I do not agree.



edit - and they are both humanoid, so you can't say it would be like doing it with animals for these two.

Tomas I don't agree with anything you said, expecially about your belief on how they age. No matter what people say I think it's wrong having beings from 2 different worlds in a romantic relationship. I can't believe it. People agreed with me that it was a cheesy thing to have them in a relationship. But I don't know why you guys think different, that's just odd to me.

Rain's bio mentioned that he was involved with Kitana in the past. In the cartoon series they added the thing about Kitana and Rain once being engaged. I liked how they did that in this episode Rain was in. Besides how do you all know Rain is not gonna allign with Kitana again in MK6 or MK7 (if he's in one of them)????? Rain being an Edenian is not the only reason he'd be better with Kitana as a lover, it's also b/c he's the son of the Edenian general. I say that's why he's in a position suitable to be with Kitana since she's the daughter of the Edenian king and queen.

About the fanfic I wrote, I don't know if it's still around. If it isn't I have an urge to re-write it in an improved way. It wasn't a long story though. I remember I got an email from someone telling me how they liked my fanfic about Rain. Than about 2 years ago someone posted a fan profile and ending for Rain (if he was gonna be in MK5) and the person said they got the idea for that profile from fanfic's on Weapon X's page. I'm assuming they got the idea from a fanfic such as mine.

after watching MKA and lui kang / kitana's love thing it makes for hilarious watching in MKDA because they obviously didn't implement that at ALL.

see kitana's ending:

she's like "oh boo hoo hoo, my beloved former enemy and recent wartime ally goro is dead. oh woe is me. whatever shall i do.... oh yeah, lui kang is dead too... that also kind of sucks."

LOL, but actually, the movie showed love with the main characters. Kitana and Liu, Sonya and Cage.

the Kitana and Liu love made up in the movie, was transfered to the games (Mk4 and MKDA) cause it was a great add.

The Sonya and Cage love was also added to the games (Cages ending for example, simply reveals evrything). And in the Mk4 comic it shows how Cage starts hitting on Sonya (Im working on my latest movie, when 2 special agents fall in love) and she says (Strike out cage!...then she looks at him and says "maybe")

I agree, the love stories in both movies made it more intresting and somewhat more intense. (to me) Adding more of it couldn't hurt, and I hope they do..! glasses

It's kinda funny having romance in a movie/game where every other character is dieing. But there's something from the first MK that I'll never forget:

CAGE: "I think your hard on for a date."

KANG: "No I'm not!"

CAGE: "Liu, she's 10,000 years old!"

KANG: "So what?"

I like the relationship with Cage and Blade and want to see it develop in the third film, but the Kang and Kitana thing was poorly developed in MKA.

So i would like to see the "Johnny and Sonya" relationship develop and i would like to see a kiss just to confirm it.

YES! Me too! Ill love to see that. And also, see Jax a little jelous cause of his Best friend kissing some other guy.

But I think the relation of Kang and Kitana was ok.

your right they should work on the Jonny&Sonya angel. they are so cute. that and if they do kill Kang off in the third film like in the game, it should be after he proposes to Kitana. just for dramatic reasions. ^_^
sanity is only a matter of oppinion.

1. I want rain to be in a love triangle with Kitana and Lui Kang. I don't see why there can't be a love triangle. All the best love films have a love triangle, titanic, Romeo and Juliet, And hunger games and twilight

Its not fair for Liu to break up an offer from Kitana of joining her in Edenia.

It would've been nice for him to give up the title of champion of Mortal Kombat and pass it on to someone else.

If Liu did that, his romance with Kitana would be even more short lived because the Champion of Mortal Kombat is IMMORTAL. Well, not really since Shang killed him in Deadly Alliance, but that's how it works. As long as you're Champion of Mortal Kombat, you can live for a very long time unless you're killed, or lose your title in the next Mortal Kombat tournament. That's what makes their relationship all the more tragic.

I would love if there was a love triangle that ended up with a woman torturing the other woman and her partner. She sets up a date and lures both of them into a place by using her partners phone to text the other woman. She could cut the other womans hair as that's what they did in the medieval ages to cheaters. She could also use a plier to pull out her teeth. She cold use a sledgehammer to crush her partners ankle. She could use a vice to crush the other woman's hands. She could electrocute both of them outside while they are tied up and drugged. She could try electrocuting her partner's eyes so he never looks at another woman again. She also tells him, she's pregnant. She could have a scene where both ladies are having a heart-to-heart and the other woman says 'everything i did, i did to get closer to u', then they say they love each other and have a kissing scene which turns out to be a lie. I think Tanya should be this 'psycho bitch'. And the other woman Kitana and guy Lui Kang or Rain. Rain, Kitana, and Tanya are all from Edenia. It would be cool. Obviously in ending, it should show the 'psycho bitch' somehow managing to kill the other two but having an alibi at the same time. Maybe she blames the killings on Jade/Mileena while also killing them to look like they were ones who attacked her boyfriend. I think a twisted love story in MK goes well. If u are wondering where I got the idea, it was from a film called Scorned 2013.

Hank, stfu. Stop stealing other people's ideas and putting unrelated things together. Stop making my country look bad by your example. How much more of your idiocy must we endure before you'll get banned? Like, seriously. To whom do i complain?

MK is not about strong psychological drama nor is is a fucking fashion show.

--------------------------

Anyway, i thought the film was just making obvious what was already hinted subtly at in game, and although i found it tacky, it was nowhere near the worst part of that film.

I'm not gonna stop suggesting ideas just because u think they're bad. One person's trash is another person's treasure. I have suggested a love triangle before on my Rain development thread and everyone says MK isn't about love, bla bla bla. All the greatest love films have love triangle. Even the film above Scorned is a love triangle although it is a twisted horror film. I think it could fit in MK something like this if NRS developed a character with a love theme. How am I making 'your country look bad?'. U are a transvestite, and I'm a metrosexual. MK isn't a fashion show nor is that my intention of what to make MK. I just think most of the female characters who are from Edenia should not dress like strippers because Kitana's a princess, Sindel is Queen etc. So they should be wearing combat fit clothes that are of high value, that is why I suggest fashion from catwalk/runway because they are classy and sassy, whereas Stripper clothes are trashy and of low value. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way, in fact the two most viewed and most replied topics sorted by descending order on the first page in themortalkombat boards is about the girls clothing.

Yeah, like Twilight, right?

Anyway, no one other than yourself gives a flying fuck about some D-movie you dragged up out of completely nowhere, so justifying its presence in here is pointless.
