Mortal Kombat

Character Type:


Initial Level:





Saint Lords



Original appearance:

Mortal Kombat II

Noob Saibot was a Lin Kuei assassin-turned wraith from the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games owned by Midway. He is one of the few original characters, debuting in the original Mortal Kombat arcade game as Sub-Zero, older brother of the current, younger Sub-Zero. He first appeared as Noob Saibot as a secret character in Mortal Kombat II and becomes playable in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. He holds the unique distinction of appearing, in one form or another, as a fighter in all of the first seven main fighting games.


Before becoming a wraith, he was once Sub Zero, an assassin among the most power of Lin Kuei. As Sub Zero's name, clothes, and powers would suggest, his character was icy and distant. In all aspects, he was a cold-blooded and violent assassin absolutely dedicated to his clan, the Lin Kuei. While essentially neutral, his soul was dark corrupted from years of violence and remorseless killing.

When he was killed by Scorpion, his soul descended to the Netherrealm's Fifth Plane. The evil within his soul was released, stripping him of pride, compassion, and everything else "human." He wishe not only to remain in the Netherrealm, but to conquer and rule it. Though he has been seen in the service of conquerors such as Shinnok and Shao Kahn, his ultimate allegiance is himself.

His prominent powers are of the shadowy element, being able to completely manipulate it and possessing the ability to teleport as well as render himself invisible by blending in with the shadows. He was also able to manipulate the shadows to increase or decrease the effectiveness of his and others' powers limitlessly. In the latest Mortal Kombat (2011 game), these abilities are taken one step further, where Noob is shown to not only be able to animate his own shadow (which is called Saibot) into a semi-liquid physical construct of himself, but also to be able to use it to fight his enemies for and alongside him. His intro and loss animations demonstrate the ability to morph into a similarly animated oily-liquid state similar to Smoke's cloud form but does not utilize it in battle.

Role in RakenzarnEdit

Noob Saibot will appear in Rakenzarn as a member of the Saint Lords, mainly the subordinates.
