Something I wonder about the Lin Kuei and the Shiari Ryu
09/20/2014 03:13 PM EDT
I've been watching the Mortal Kombat Legacy episodes with both clans feuding with Bi-Han and Hanzo and remembering the flashback Quan Chi shows Scorpion of his clan and family getting killed by Sub-Zero. The fashions look from a different period of the clan's histories in time.

It kind made me wonder, do the clans tend to live in a style like that of the Amish or a religious community? It seems they tend to wear styles from a certain time period and seem isolated from the rest of the world despite the missions they do in various areas.

I could be wrong, but has anyone thought of that?

In old times, these assassins strictly wore black but the attire later developed due to both clans dispute.

Legacy's ninja stuff is literally set in the ancient past and some of the competitors like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Kenshi actually travel through time to get to the tournament. It's pretty retarded.

In the games' canon, the Lin Kuei live a lot like the League of Shadows in Batman Begins.

We haven't seen daily life in the Shirai Ryu, but we know they don't live in a secret hidden base like the Lin Kuei do, they have a farming village in rural Japan. So...look up what farms in Japan look like I suppose.

The uniforms are tradition, but that doesn't mean they don't use technology. I mean, look at the cyberninjas. Sektor and Cyrax were using modern weapons when they were human too according to MK9. And in the MK2 comic book, Sub-Zero and Smoke used a VTOL jet to get around.

I took a look at some Japanese farming villages like you said Razor, interesting.

I stopped watching Legacy after Kung Lao tried to get Liu Kang out of a drunken stupor. Not even Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa could've saved it. I liked the first season with Sonya, Kano and Jax etc..

I remember the MK 2 comic too and remembered Sub-Zero telling Liu Kang and Kung Lao his brother was too out of touch to use technology and he was so willing to use it until MK 3 happened and got out. Now with Rayden's derp time travel decisions, he's a walking undead zombie ice maker.
