Mortal Kombat, Scorpio. Character Biography
In one of the most famous and successfulfighting games in history there is a large number of characters that you can choose. However, this is far from being just figures with different techniques - they have their own stories, biographies, relationships with other characters and so on. Moreover, in each of the games that were published, the stories of all the characters changed slightly. Therefore, to study the biography of each hero is no less exciting than playing for him in the Death Tournament. In this article, you will learn about who Scorpio is - this character is known to almost everyone, since he is one of the brightest in the series, but few know about his story. Immediately it is worth saying that in Mortal Kombat Scorpio is a dead ninja, which was revived - in almost all games this background is preserved, but slightly modified.
"Mortal Combat 1"
In the original game of Mortal Kombat Scorpio wasone of the most successful ninja in the world, but was killed by his sworn enemy Sab-Zero. Naturally, this did not stop there - he was resurrected and endowed with special abilities, so that he could take revenge - after all, he had a wife and children. Scorpio takes part in the Deadly Battle and wins the tournament, becoming a new champion and killing Sab-Zero. Revenge was accomplished, however, the hero did not achieve his goal at all - he was only half human and could never reunite with his family. In Mortal Kombat, Scorpio appears before the player in the form of an ordinary ninja, but during the battles you can understand what is different from a man - first, he can release a famous metal snake from his hand, and secondly, he can remove the mask under which there is a fire-breathing skull.
"Mortal Kombat 2"
In the second part of the Mortal Kombat Scorpion againis an avenging ghost. In the first game, he pursues only one goal - to kill Sab-Zero, which he seems to be able to do. However, while in the second tournament he again sees the Sab-Zero, however, strangely enough, he during the fight keeps the life of the defeated enemy. Accordingly, Scorpio understands that this is not the enemy who took his life from him, so decides not to kill him. Winning in the tournament and overthrowing Shao Kahn, Scorpio decides to find a new destination - he becomes the bodyguard of his younger brother's sworn enemy in order to prepare for the next Tournament. As you can see, Mortal Kombat is a game that can not be called boring or unoriginal, since in each episode it offers you an original and impressive story
"Mortal Combat 3"
The third part of Mortal Kombat is a game thatcontinues the story of the second episode. The fact is that before the next tournament Shao Kahn tried to release souls from Hell to capture the Earth, but this attempt was unsuccessful. However, as a result of this action, Scorpio appeared on the will, which initially does not apply to either side. But over time it becomes clear that the Emperor plans for the hero his mission - he must travel and kill the chosen warriors of the Earth in order to weaken it. Scorpio undertakes the task, but as a result learns that one of his goals is the Sab-Zero, which he swore to protect. Accordingly, the hero turns against the Emperor and kills him, saving the Earth, but in the end being once again imprisoned in Hell. In Mortal Kombat PC-version this character is one of the most popular, however many do not even guess what is behind the merciless ghost-ninja.
This episode of Mortal Kombat, PC-version andconsole versions, is a new story that is not related to the previous ones. Here everything comes back to the moment when the Scorpio just died and was resurrected. In the person of Scorpio, the main villain Quan Chi sees a useful ally, and suggests returning him a normal life if he serves him. Naturally, Scorpio agrees, but at the same time dreams not so much of a return to normal life as of the Sab-Zero revenge. Yes, he eventually achieves this, but it turns out that Scorpio was killed not by Sab-Zero, but by Quan Chi, who is not going to fulfill his part of the deal. He begins to send Scorpio back to Hell, but he heroically captures the villain with him to the Underworld. As you can see, the stories are simply incredible and very well spelled out, and various types of strokes and tricks are not the only thing that Scorpio can be interested in. Combo-strikes of this character, of course, are impressive, but apart from them there is also a fascinating biography, which you should not forget about.
"Mortal Combat: Deadly Alliance"
This time the next episode of the game iscontinuation of the previous, but not as happy as we would like. As you remember, in the last part of the game Scorpio took with him to Hell Quan Chi and now began to hunt for him where he is much stronger. However, he did not achieve success - Quan Chi even managed to open a portal to the Outside World, but Scorpio followed him and continued his hunt. As a result, he reached the palace of Shang Tsung, where he was waiting for a trap - two monsters, Moloch and Darmin, whom Quan Chi deliberately subordinated to protect him from a ghostly ninja. Unfortunately, with them Scorpio could not cope, but they could not devour him, as would have been done with any mortal. So they went to the portal in Rai Shang Tsung, from where he took new souls, and threw Scorpio to where his ghostly body was destroyed.
"Mortal Kombat: Cheating"
Many gamers were surprised to learn that in thisthe episode of the game the story of Scorpio continued - after all, everyone thought that he died in a portal to Paradise. But the hero was able to get over into the Void without perishing. It was here that he first saw the Elder Gods, and also watched how Reiden died, how the Dragon King came to unite the two kingdoms - earthly and external. The gods had other plans for this, so they made Scorpio their weapon and sent him to Earth to stop the Dragon King. After a long hunt, he still managed to get to the King and destroy him thanks to the powers he received from the Gods.
"Mortal Kombat: Armageddon"
This episode tells how Scorpiotried to rejoin his clan, which was completely killed. As in previous versions, he was resurrected by Kuang Chi. As a result, Scorpio achieved its goal - his entire clan, including his wife and children, resurrected and was ready to follow him to the end. But the terrible thing happened - suddenly in the ranks of the clan appeared Quan Chi himself and kidnapped Scorpio's son. Naturally, he went in search of his sworn enemy, in what now his whole clan will help him.
"Mortal Kombat: The Complete Edition"
The latest game in the series, whichtoday is on sale, tells the old story in a new way. If in previous games gamers did not know the true name of Scorpio, then here it is mentioned - in his life he was called Hanso Hasashi. In Mortal Kombat 9 Scorpio again gets a new life thanks to the efforts of Quan Chi, which he begins to serve. But at the same time he, of course, pursues his goals. The fact is that he dreams of revenge - to kill Sab-Zero, who is guilty of the death of both himself and his clan. It is to this goal that he goes throughout the game process.
As a result, his goal was achieved - Sab-Zero is dead, butat the same time something still remains unfinished. Scorpio is drawn to the ruins, where there used to be the village of his clan. It is there that the spirits of the members of his clan come to him, who reveal the truth to him. Sub-Zero was only an instrument in the hands of Kuang Chi, like Scorpio himself all this time. The Ghost Ninja goes to Hell and kills Quan Chi with the help of the spirits of relatives, thereby finally making the long-awaited revenge. In Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition Scorpio finally manages to completely deal with his worst enemy. But what's next? Is this all going to end here? In fact, the sequel will still be - pretty soon the next Mortal Kombat X game should be released. Scorpio is shown there even in the first trailer - naturally, he fights with Sab-Zero. As you could already hear, in the next part of the series, many characters from the Earth will be represented as aged, and their children will be introduced into the game, so the story is expected to change slightly this time.
