Possible Opponents[]


Raised under the guidance of the Shirai Ryu Ninja clan, Hanzo Hasashi became a great ninja assassin in order to provide for his beloved Kana and their child Jubei. In time, Hanzo's skills in battle earned him the alias of "Sasori." But Hanzo's fate was sealed when he hired by Quan Chi to steal the sacred Map of Elements, killed by Bi-Han of the Lin Kuei. But Hanzo is brought back from the depths of the Netherrealm by Quan Chi, who expressed an interest in the man being unaffected by Netherrealm's hellfire. Hanzo is then imbued with hellfire while being told that his Quan Chi proceeds to imbue Hanzo with hellfire while stating that his family have been murdered during their clan's slaughter by the Lin Kuei. Taking on the name of Scorpion, participates in Mortal Kombat as a retainer of Quan Chi to seek out his killer and overseer of the massacre: The Lin Kuei assassin he only knew as Sub-Zero. Scorpion remained loyal to Quan Chi until learning that it was the necromancer himself behind the events of his death and personally murdered his wife and child.

In the rebooted franchise, Hasashi is the only Shirai Ryu ninja left after his entire family and clan were slaughtered by Quan Chi (who deceived him into believing that Sub Zero is responsible), and eventually served the sorcerer as a pawn to his schemes. After defeating Kung Lao, Nightwolf, Sektor and Cyrax, Scorpion demanded Sub Zero, who subsequently appears in person (as Bi-Han), and defeated him in battle in the Neatherrealm. Quan Chi reminds him with false visions of the Lin Kuei slaughtering his clan, resulting in Scorpion killing Sub-Zero, accosting him of the very chance he needed to bring his family back. He was later defeated by Sub-Zero (Kuai Liang) and Raiden, but continuously served Quan Chi until he was resurrected in MKX, alongside Jax and Sub Zero. For twenty years, as a mortal once again, Scorpion reestablishes the Shirai Ryu as it's sole Master, later Grandmaster, even training Takeda Takahashi, son of his friend Kenshi. Five years prior to the events of MKX, Sub Zero invited him to his temple, which was nearly sabotaged because of Frost's intervention, who has grown to hate the Shirai Ryu out of lack of judgement, and bests him in kombat once again, but Sub Zero manages to reason Scorpion with the truth about Frost, then revealed the truth behind the death of his family and clan. Heartbroken that he had been mislead by the Quan Chi the entire time, Scorpion seeks revenge against the sorcerer. He succeeds by beating Sonya Blade, Johnny Cage and disarmed Kenshi of Sento, his famed blade.

After beating and killing Quan Chi, Scorpion was later wounded by D'Vorah, a double agent working for Shinnok, and was easily beaten by the latter himself. He breathed out his words to an arriving Cassie Cage that Johnny was taken to the Sky Temple before he was taken away for recovery.
