• Cassie Cage
The daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade, has a lot to live up to. Her parents were among the few kombatants to survive the wars against Outworld and NetherRealm, and were instrumental to EarthRealm’s victories. Cassie is as strong-willed–and occasionally hotheaded–as her mother; and as quick-witted as her beloved dad, which makes her popular within her Special Forces unit.
Is of a race called the Kytinn, which populates the island realm of Arnyek. The solitary nature of the Kytinn meant a common defense of their realm was impossible; thus it was conquered and merged with Outworld by Shao Kahn. D’Vorah’s loyalty and insightfulness, unusual traits for a Kytinn, led to her quick political rise.
The dual being known as Ferra/Torr is mysterious even to their closest allies. It’s rumored that Torr and Ferra were Outworld citizens, captured and permanently tethered to each other by the evil sorcerer Shang Tsung in the bowels of his Flesh Pits. They’re more likely members of a forgotten symbiotic race, in which the ‘rider’ bonds with a ‘mount.’ The rider, Ferra, serves as the de facto brains of the duo, while the hulking Torr is the muscle. It’s possible they communicate with each other telepathically, or that Ferra can actually understand Torr’s booming grunts. Found roaming the Tarkatan Wastes by Kotal Kahn’s troops, Ferra/Torr were pressed into service as the emperor’s personal bodyguards.
• Johnny Cage
Hollywood action hero Johnny Cage entered his first Mortal Kombat tournament for the publicity. Raiden observed that the arrogant, loquacious Cage, was ‘a hero. .. though he may not yet know it.’ Raiden was correct, of course: Johnny’s martial arts skills were not special effects–and were pivotal in EarthRealm’s victory.
Kano is a member of the Black Dragon, a group of international arms dealers. Sonya, Jax and the Special Forces have been trying to shut them down for decades. Though he’s from EarthRealm (Australia), Kano usually sides with his home realm’s enemies. In the past he provided high tech weapons both to Shao Kahn’s Outworld armies and Shinnok and Quan Chi of the NetherRealm. After Shinnok’s defeat Kano returned to Outworld, keeping a low profile but making a tidy profit running guns from Earth to Outworld.
• Kotal Khan
Kotal Khan was a young boy in the warrior realm of Osh-Tekk when it was merged with Outworld by Shao Kahn. He grew up admiring the Outworld emperor. But Kotal kept hidden from Shao Kahn a secret Osh-Tekk portal to EarthRealm. Kotal’s ‘magical’ appearances and demonstrations of great power in EarthRealm led its inhabitants to declare him a god, whom they called Buluc. After Shao Kahn was killed in the war with EarthRealm, Kotal served Shao Kahn’s heir Mileena. But her instability eventually led Kotal to overthrow her and assume the emperorship.
Perceiving a lack of loyalty in his adopted daughter, Kitana, Shao Kahn ordered Shang Tsung to create a replacement, a daughter worthy to be his heir. Shang Tsung fulfilled Shao Kahn’s order by fusing Tarkatan DNA with Kitana’s. The resulting hybrid Mileena is as bloodthirsty and vicious as a Tarkatan, but possesses the martial artistry and poise of an Edenian.
Raiden is the God of Thunder and the Protector of EarthRealm. Millennia ago he and the Elder Gods defeated Shinnok, who sought dominion over the realms. More recently, Raiden thwarted Outworld’s attempts to conquer and merge with EarthRealm. However victory came at great cost. Many of Raiden’s closest allies were killed in the battle. Raiden’s strength was further tested when an escaped Shinnok’s NetherRealm armies attacked an EarthRealm weakened by war. Ultimately Raiden imprisoned Shinnok again–this time in Shinnok’s own Amulet.
Hanzo Hasashi was a member of the Shirai-Ryu assassin clan until they and his family were killed by Sub-Zero of the rival Lin Kuei clan. Hanzo’s soul was claimed by the NetherRealm sorcerer Quan Chi, who resurrected him as the revenant Scorpion and gave him the chance to avenge his family’s deaths.
Kuai Liang and his older brother Bi-Han served the Lin Kuei assassin clan faithfully until the first Mortal Kombat tournament. There Bi-Han, code-named Sub-Zero, was killed by the demon Scorpion. Kuai Liang assumed the Sub-Zero mantle and went to Outworld to find his brother’s killer.

The tutorial is available from the start in the Main Menu. It’s completely optional, since not playing it doesn’t hamper your progress in the game. It consists of four parts to help you up your beginner’s game: The Basics, Kombos, Special Moves, and Advanced Tutorial.
Canceling Tip: Certain normal attacks allow you to perform a Special Move before the attack animation is finished. You “cancel” the animation of the normal attack to perform the Special Move and pave the way for more devastating combos. Note that not all normal attacks can be canceled, so be sure to experiment in Training Mode.
Welcome to the Mortal Kombat X walkthrough! PapiG will be your guide showing you through the game’s battles.
Intro: The story begins just as Shinnok’s plan to escape the Netherrealm comes to fruition, tasking you with stopping his conquest of Earthrealm as Johnny Cage. Twenty years later, Earthrealm and Outworld have formed a non-aggression pact, which brings an uneasy peace between the two realities. However, there are those who would undo this truce for their own gain. Outworld’s current empreror, Kotal Kahn, is dealing with a rebellion led by Shao Kahn’s daughter, Mileena, who claims to be the rightful heir to the Outworld throne. Quan Chi, Shinnok’s most trusted servant, continues to plot against Earthrealm and Outworld — determined to free his master from Raiden and the Elder Gods’ prison.
The story of Mortal Kombat X is comprised of 12 chapters, each putting you in control of a specific character. Each chapter is full of several epic battles and stunning cutscenes that put past fighting game story modes to shame. Story Mode is not just entertaining — it’s a great way to become familiar with several characters over the course of normal play. Story difficulty can be adjusted in the Gameplay settings, found in the Options Menu.
Interactive Cutscenes Tip: Mortal Kombat X has several interactive cutscenes that play out over the course of the Story Mode. When the screen switches from a letterbox display to full-screen, prepare to match the on-screen button prompts to emerge victorious.
Stage Interactions Tip: Each stage has several interactive objects that can be used to damage your opponent or put some distance between the fighters. An interactive object glows with a white outline when you’re within range; press the R1/RB shoulder button to use the interactive object at the cost of half of your Energy.
