Kabal Mortal Kombat

You’re not going to find this one in the near future. The Kabal Mortal Kombat is a time-traveling champion from an alternate dimension. In its dimension, it has been given the stone, which is a physical embodiment of the power of the Earth itself. It has been tasked with curing a plague ravaging the dimension and has been given a list of items to gather to do so.


Kabal is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise by Midway Games and NetherRealm Studios. He debuted in Mortal Kombat 3 (1995) as a former member of the Black Dragon criminal organization. Chosen by the thunder god Raiden to help defend Earthrealm, he pursues redemption by battling invading forces from Outworld. Subsequent installments, however, give Kabal a more villainous depiction as the leader of a new Black Dragon clan in the original timeline and an undead revenant in the reboot. Due to injuries suffered against Outworld's warriors, the character wears a specialized helmet with a built-in life-support system. He possesses superhuman speed and uses a pair of hookswords as his primary weapon. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Due to his constantly shifting allegiances, Kabal's true underlying personality is somewhat vague. As a Black Dragon member, he is shown to be every bit as greedy, ruthless, and amoral as Kano. But at a certain later point, he leaves the Black Dragon and joins the police force to atone for his past crimes, although he is later brought back to the side of evil by Havik (in the original timeline).

A strange glitch could occur in the Sega Genesis version of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, where, if the player entered the combination for Kabal's MK3 Animality after the "Finish Him!" message was displayed, his own head would be knocked off by no visible means and various glitches appeared. This is because the programmers forgot to delete Kabal's Animality code. (Source: mortalkombat.fandom.com)

Plasma Blast: Kabal fires a purple projectile from his mask. He can do this both on the ground and in the air. In MK 2011, this is called Gas Blast. In MK11, Kabal instead emits a short-ranged cloud of lethal vapor from his mask which damages close opponents and restands them.

Back when the first trailer for Mortal Kombat was released, it was thought that we'd seen a first look at Kabal from that, but his character hadn't made an appearance otherwise. It appears those suspicions were correct now that we've seen what Kabal will look like in the Mortal Kombat movie. (Source: comicbook.com)
