UMK3
MKT?
MK Mythologies: Sub-Zero

I really don't think it is the "games" that are canon or non-canon, but rather the charater endings from each game whether the endings are canon or non-canon to understand what is canon in MK.

I think they did say Special Forces can be disregarded. And Shaolin Monks is a mess. Very little of it seems to be canon...and what IS canon, we don't know.

Every other game is canon.

I don't think unchained will be canon as it was pretty much the same as deception and I don't think the extra story s would count as Canon because Armageddon came out pretty much right after it.

Yep. MKSF is not canon, and it was just for fun like MKSM. I think MKSM was just to get our minds going about what may have happened in Outworld in MK2.

We don't know what is canon for sure.

I would like to say that MK Mythologies is canon, it's my favorite MK game.

Well, I didn't count MK:U canon because it's basically the same thing as Deception. I thought they proved Mk:M: Sub-zero canon?

Mythologies is definitely canon. There's no question about it.

Unchained is canon because it expains how Frost ended up frozen in the Lin Kuei HQ for Armageddon's Konquest. It also explains Blaze's deal and hints that something's up with Jax.

New Question

What are the rules of Mortal Kombat?


I don't know the code of conduct kombatants adbide to during a fight but I do know how the tournament works on a much larger scale.

Mortal Kombat was made by the Elder Gods to prevent Shao Kahn from invading other realms with ease. Any time Shao Kahn (Or perhaps Outworld regardless of who has the throne...) wants to invade a realm, Mortal Kombat tournaments must be held. I think both sides would choose their greatest warriors and pit them against each other with warriors from one realm fighting those from the other.

Whoever wins the tournament becomes champion and scores a point for their realm. The next tournament, the same thing happens but the final fight is between whoever won the tournament and the previous tournament's champion. Once the battle is over, a point is scored depending on who won the fight. If the champion wins, he/she retains their title. If they lose, the person who beat them becomes the new champion.

Should Outworld win ten Mortal Kombats in a row, the Elder Gods will stand aside and let it invade the losing realm and war is waged as it would have been if the MK tournaments never existed. I'm not sure what happens if Outworld loses ten in a row as no realm has ever pulled off that feat.

One VERY important note in the point system is that it doesn't matter what realm the winner of a Mortal Kombat tournament lives in, but what realm they were born in. For example, though Bo' Rai' Cho lives in Earthrealm, he was born in Outworld and would thusly score a point for Outworld if he won a tournament (Hence why he never participated in one.).

As far as I know, the Elder Gods don't have any 'names'.

Unless I'm mistaken, we have no names of Elder Gods with the exception of two former Elder Gods: Shinnok who got kicked out and banished to the Netherrealm for trying to take over and Raiden who was an Elder God for only a few short years until he got tired of all the BS and quit.

There might have been two names in the MK: A movie for two of the Elder Gods but the movies are not canon.

Raiden and Fujin are NOT elder gods (at least not Raiden anymore). They are the wind and thunder dieties. Argus is an elder god, Shinnok was one, but those are the only names we know.

Argus is a god in Edenia. Idk what he's the god of there, but he's not an Elder God. His wife is an Oricale
