Earthrealm Kamidogu

In the Mortal Kombat series, Earthrealm is the name that is most frequently used for what humans normally call Earth, which is a rocky planet orbiting the Sun.

Earthrealm is one of many realms that were formed after the Elder Gods shattered the One Being. In the Mortal Kombat universe, Earthrealm has been the target of frequent attempts at conquest, because it is thought to be the jewel of the cosmos and an important universal power node. Because of this, the Elder Gods have appointed a deity to protect the realm from harm. For countless centuries, this task has been entrusted to Raiden, though other gods, such as Fujin, also play a role in this. Furthermore, the Shaolin Temple of the Light was formed to train mortals in martial arts and prepare them to defend their world from evil. More recent organizations such as the reformed Lin Kuei or the Special Forces play a similar role. Earthrealm was nearly destroyed millions of years ago in a war between Shinnok and Raiden, and then verged on the brink of collapse during Shao Kahn's short conquest. After his invasion was foiled, Earthrealm has served as an inspiration to other conquered realms of Outworld. Edenia would later rise up and Nitara's home realm, Vaeternus, would rebel as well.

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, Part II[]

Of course, this is the main realm in the story, mostly in the Wu Shi Academy, the hidden Kombatant base, Los Angeles, and other places. Aiko was born and raised in Earthrealm, specifically in New Jersey.

It was soon in great peril as it began to merge with Outworld and be destroyed by Kahn and his extermination squads.

It was later destroyed during Aiko's heart meld with Kung Lao; in her dystopian future, several Kombatants didn't survive the invasion thus were turned to revenants and ruled over by Shinnok and Quan Chi. There were also visions of Kahn surviving all the ordeals and indirectly ruling it while the survivors and past selves were getting annihilated.

At first everything seemed bleak as Earthrealm was able to merge with Outworld, resulting in Raiden losing his powers and the Jinsei running out. Until Liu Kang emerged victorious on destroying Shao Kahn as he fell off the Pit III and had his body and soul instantaneously shredded by the rows of giant rotating spikes!! Earthrealm, along with Outworld, was able to restore vitality and allowed all the freed souls to return to their recuperated vessels that were annihilated by the extermination squads. Even Kung Lao's soul returned and the Jinsei, along with Raiden, regained their purity! While the sinister skies had finally dissipated!

The realm was at peace once more, even the restoring Edenia, though Lao and Aiko always had his doubts on another invasion... She soon became a member of the defenders as she trained with the White Lotus Society.

Shinnok's Uprising[]

Earthrealm was still in peace and prosperity, as was Edenia, over the last couple years. Its Champion moved to America to train a newer generation of Shaolin Monks, leaving Lao in charge at the Order of Light. Raiden continued to watch over the realm and decided to recuperate two of the fallen warriors at the Sky Temple. Until he and Fujin sensed sporadic weather! Both brothers warned the heroes that the dark omens of Shinnok have come true as the vengeful Elder God finally escaped the Netherrealm and wreaked havoc onto the heavens!

After thousands of years, when Raiden was successful on sealing Shinnok while losing the Zaterran civilization and encasing the realm into darkness, Shinnok rose for revenge! Raiden ordered Liu, Lao, Kai, Aiko, and Nightwolf to retrieve Earthrealm's warriors before the konflict shall reach their world.

In Shanghai, Sonya was chasing after the last surviving member of the Black Dragons, Jarek! She was then summoned by Jax to head near the Bargon Har Mountains where she reunited with Johnny Cage who has been resurrected by Raiden!! Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Aiko, Sub-Zero, Nightwolf, and Kai met up with her before she generated a portal leading to Edenia.

Days later, Kung Lao requested Sonya to generate a portal leading into Earthrealm from the Edenian Prisons. Thanks to Nightwolf, she did just that and Lao and Aiko help exonerate the prisoners near the Bayan Har Mountains. Lao continued to lead them to the Wu Shi Academy where they can rest and recover till the Netherrealm War was over. Shortly afterwards, the heroes returned with the quarrel won! Raiden ascended to the heavens where the Elder God promoted him within the ranks.

Cyrax also became a new ally to defend Earthrealm, courtesy of the Special Forces. The Jinsei Chamber was able to recuperate Kung Lao and Aiko after having their hearts manipulated by Shinnok, and Raiden summoned several of his warriors for his final farewell... Fujin became the new guardian of Earth, contrary to all the destruction experienced in Aiko's dystopian future! Unlike the previous two tournaments, the role of Champion was only earned by Raiden and Fujin finishing off Shinnok, thus reversing Liu Kang's eternal curse.
