Fan Fiction

Kitana's first appearance was in the second Mortal Kombat tournament. She was introduced as Shao Kahn's daughter and personal assassin. However, she appeared every now and then to assist the defenders of Earthrealm in secret. Her true feelings and alignment were a mystery but were revealed to the Earthrealm warriors during the tournament. She was not really the daughter of Shao Kahn, but in fact his stepdaughter; she was adopted by Kahn to strengthen his claims to the Edenian throne after he killed its king, Jerrod, and married Jerrod's wife, Queen Sindel, who were Kitana's parents. 9,000 years later, Kahn instructed newly corrupted Earthrealm Mortal Kombat tournament fighter Shang Tsung to create a twin for Kitana; the monstrous Mileena, who was actually a grotesque and evil clone of Kitana.

Kitana grew up dutifully loyal to Shao Kahn, whom she believed was her real father. She was raised to be one of Shao Kahn's personal assassins, alongside her good friend Jade and her evil "sister" Mileena. Upon learning the truth about her past, she continued to feign loyalty to Kahn whilst planning and waiting for the right time to turn against him openly.

Mortal Kombat II[]

Kitana's chance finally came during Mortal Kombat II, when Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung lured Earth's heroes into Outworld. Kitana entered the tournament, but secretly began to contact one of Earth's heroes (most likely Liu Kang) trying to help them defeat Kahn. However, Kitana's efforts were discovered by her clone Mileena. Mileena attacked her traitorous "sister," forcing Kitana to defend herself. She defeated and killed Mileena, and in so doing revealed that she was no longer loyal to Shao Kahn.

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3[]

The Earthrealm warriors escaped from Outworld, but Kitana was imprisoned and sentenced to death for killing Mileena. However, after Sindel's resurrection and Shao Kahn's subsequent invasion of Earthrealm, she managed to escape and rejoin her friends from Earth. Her only purpose was to save the resurrected Sindel and remove the evil taint in her soul.

Kitana also had to contend with her friend Jade, who was sent by Kahn to capture her. Kitana managed to convince her to turn against Kahn and join the forces of good. Jade then helped the Princess defeat Reptile, another assassin sent by Kahn to capture Kitana. Eventually, Kitana reached through to her mother and freed her from Kahn's grasp. Shao Kahn's reign over Earthrealm was short-lived, as he and his elite forces were ultimately defeated. In the wake of these events, Kitana and Sindel freed Edenia as well. Before leaving Earthrealm, Kitana thanked Liu Kang for all he had done.

Mortal Kombat Gold[]

Earthrealm had barely recovered from its violent merger with Outworld, however, as a new threat presented itself in the form of Shinnok. He and his grand vizier Quan Chi invaded Edenia from the forbidden Netherrealm and imprisoned its legitimate rulers.

No novice to escaping from prisons, Kitana broke loose once more, only to encounter a resurrected Mileena now in the service of Shinnok. She defeated Mileena in battle before locking her in a jail cell in the prisons of the Edenian Palace. The forces of darkness were soon defeated by Raiden and his comrades, and Edenia was free once more. It is after these events that Kitana finally proposed to Liu Kang and offered to rule Edenia together as King and Queen. Liu Kang reluctantly denied her offer, saying his place was as Champion of Earth.

After Shinnok's defeat, Kitana learned that Shao Kahn had survived his defeat in Earthrealm and was trying to regain his strength in Outworld. Realizing the vulnerable position of her realm, however, Kitana hastily formed an alliance with the Shokan, a powerful and ancient race that had fallen in disgrace with the weakened Emperor. Having mediated a peace accord between the two mortal enemies of Shokan and Centaur after Shinnok's defeat, Kitana and her forces prepared for battle.

Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance[]

The combined armies, led by Prince Goro and Kitana herself, marched against Outworld's armies a few years later, with much initial success. However, in the decisive moments, Goro was mortally wounded by the mysterious Noob Saibot, ending the battle with a draw.

Shortly thereafter, Kitana learned that Shao Kahn had been slain by unknown assassins. Thinking her fight was finally over, Kitana began to journey back to Edenia, hoping she could finally live in peace. However, she then encountered her old ally Kung Lao and he told her of a new threat: the "Deadly Alliance" of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung. Kung Lao told Kitana of the Deadly Alliance's plans to revive the Undead Army of the legendary Dragon King and how they had already managed to kill Shao Kahn and Liu Kang. These revelations not only left Kitana devastated, but also heartbroken.

Despite Kitana's grief upon learning of Liu Kang's death at the hands of the Deadly Alliance, she joined with her old Earthrealm allies against the new threat. Unfortunately, the Deadly Alliance was victorious, defeating the heroes with Kitana herself (despite her new and improved skills gained from training with Bo' Rai Cho) killed in a one-on-one battle with Quan Chi. However, shortly after, Kitana and her allies were resurrected by Onaga, the legendary Dragon King himself. Onaga then put a powerful spell on them, turning them into his loyal servants. Now loyal to the Dragon King, Kitana assisted in Onaga's invasion of her own realm of Edenia.

Mortal Kombat: Unchained[]

Onaga used Kitana to kidnap her mother Sindel, knowing the queen would not fight her daughter. However, Sindel was rescued by Jade, and together they fled to Outworld where they attempted to find a way to defeat Onaga and free Kitana from his evil influence. Unknown to Kitana, Liu Kang's spirit returned from beyond death and had found himself a new ally and friend Ermac, and the two as well embarked on a mission to save their allies.

True to Ermac's Deception ending, which shows him and Liu Kang's spirit being successful in rescuing the enslaved Earthrealm warriors, Kitana is released from Onaga's control.

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon[]

At that time, while she made her way back to Edenia, she encountered Blaze, who told her of a coming new danger that will threaten all the realms and that she must gather her forces to face it. Weary of constant battle, Kitana felt disheartened, wondering if the fighting would ever end. However, Blaze assured her that the wars would soon be over. Following this warning, Kitana returns in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, fighting alongside Edenia. She is first seen fighting Kano and gains the upper hand. However, she was knocked away by Kintaro. Kitana is later seen in the background fighting Reptile. She was killed during the final battle.

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, Part II[]

After Shang Tsung, Kintaro, and Shao Kahn were defeated by Liu Kang and Kung Lao, she congratulated the former on his success. There'd finally be a promising future for Edenia as she'd rebuild her kingdom under his true father's wishes. Liu Kang asked if what should happen between them, but she turned him down, asking who'd said there'd be an "us."

Unfortunately, peace was short-lived, as she spotted a suspicious figure holding a blood-crusted amulet while the crowd of spectators were cheering for the heroes. She suspected it'd be Quan Chi, despite her peripheral vision doubting her judgement. Three months later, Outworld was involved in a nasty scrimmage between the Shokan and Centaurs, as this was the 5,000th anniversary of Jerrod's death. Asgaarth assisted her, Liu Kang, the Shokan rebellion, and Sheeva to overthrow Kahn's vicious rule as he was regaining his lost strength. Unfortunately, her plan backfired as Shang Tsung disguised himself as a Shokan making Sheeva and Motaro to finally war with each other. Raiden enlisted the help of the Centaurs as leverage against Tsung and the Shokan, and the heroes escaped while she rekindled with Liu's relationship.

Kitana soon encountered Kung Lao and a grown Aiko summoned by Raiden, and after the Saurians' fall, they headed to base again to catch up.

She was then seen in the main deck with the other Kombatants while Aiko had her first meditating session; in it, she saw Kitana and her failed insurrection on attaining the throne upon the 5000th anniversary of Jerrod's death. She and one of his trusted knights, Asgaarth, led the rebellion, though Liu Kang was anxious that if they should win, the team would lose Kitana as the new queen. Fortunately, that never happened as her rebellion was warped by Shang Tsung making an alliance with the Shokan disguising himself as Sheeva to gain the real one's trust. Khan was furious with the treachery, though he escaped while the defenders escaped as the Shokan were slaughtered by the Centaurs and Tarkans.

Kitana decided to revisit Outworld and survey the damage while spot any suspicious activity; there was nothing, even when she offered Liu to come. Unfortunately, nothing turned up, and Liu promised to avenge the fallen. There were no signs of Asgaarth either, though chances are he might've found fortitude.

She and Liu spotted a wounded Kano wandering around, but she halted him on making a mark. He wondered how he survived and was released from his captor in Kahn's arena. With that, Earthrealm began to merge with Outworld, and the three Kombatants were paralyzed.

Following the descending rope, Liu ran down the abandoned Bell Tower to the basement with a lethal bed of spikes, He saw a chute, and Kitana was in it! He cried her name, but she never stirred. Then he was ambushed by Rain!

Three months ago, Liu Kang and the defenders followed some suspicious portal readings coming from the New Guinea jungles. He was caught off guard by the outcast, and Kitana halted the fight; at one point they were engaged, which increased Liu's jealousy and distrust in Rain since he was an exile of Outworld. After the group was attacked by Lin Kuei cyborgs, Liu was separated from the princess, but her dropped fan was left as a clue, pointing toward an abandoned tower. Liu rescued Kitana from her shackles after destroying a multi-headed mutant. Kitana offered to fend off Rain, but the tower began to collapse, and he escaped in a watery portal.

Liu strategized to drive the lightning strikes to the gears and the bolts disabled the contraption and suspended Kitana over the spikes! He managed to destroy the gears after Rain was electrocuted and saved Kitana by using a Flying Kick over the spikes, but it wasn't long before the old tower caved in! Rain plowed thru the stories to his demise! Then the Kombatants made a leap of faith off the balcony! Luckily Asgaarth, and a Dragon Jet piloted by Jax and Sonya riding shotgun, came to their rescue!

As they chanced a short rest, Kitana was astonished Motaro was at it assassinating Johnny and leading the extermination squads across Earthrealm, although she was confused as to how Kahn was able to merge realms since the Elder Gods banned him in taking part in Earth. She suspected there'd be a loophole of sorts. She was also dumbfounded as to why Kahn would enlist both a Centuar and the Shokan, even though the former had been breaking ranks, she figured it was some false peace offer the Konquerer made to employ both races. Asgaarth depended on her and the Champion to save both realms, before the group took some shuteye.

By dawn, the quartet marched across the Bridge, and they were ambushed by the Tarkatan generals, Baraka, and her twisted sister, Mileena! She dealt with her while Liu faced off the former. It was a brutal fight and while Sonya was keeping the extermination squads, she was muffled as she tried to point some advice on disabling Mileena's legs; she was able to figure it out since Mileena was her clone, they'd pretty much have a similar fighting style utilizing their legs! The strategy worked though she didn't have the heart to kill her, especially when Mileena mentioned their mom, Sindel, was still alive. She was caught off guard, but Sonya came to her aide, incinerating Mileena with her pink energy wave! Kitana stated that honor shouldn't have to be owed, but the Agent thanked her anyway. She led the charge to Kahn's Fortress after Jax decimated the extermination squads as he made the Bridge collapse.

The quartet met up with the rest of the team beneath the streets, and they were prepared for battle! Shao Kahn sent out more of his extermination squads consisting of the usual Tarkatans, Shadow Priests and Centaurs. The enemies were suddenly ambushed by each of the heroes' own Animalities, even the rabbit who was used as a projectile; one time Liu Kang's dragon was paired with her before he threw her as she mauled a nearby Tarakatan! Other than that, she was used as a distraction till she morphed back into her Edenian form. Each one of the heroes continued to break thru the defense lines, and Kitana was the first to do so; she was able to gaze onto, and recognize, her resurrected mother, Queen Sindel!! She hid into the Fortress and the princess gave chase! Soon after, Liu Kang followed her in, as did Kung Lao, Aiko and Nightwolf albeit several feet away. Sindel let out a deafening shriek which stunned all the advancing Kombatants! Aiko was barely able to use her cardiokinesis, expanding Sindel's heart just enough to exhaust her and seize her banshee screams!

Liu Kang and Kitana were the first to infiltrate Kahn's Fortress, with the latter desperately looking for her mom. They wound up inside the Temple floor, and Sindel made a surprise attack from above!! Kitana tried to talk some reasoning into the evil queen, but she never budged, always belittling Kitana that Milenna was her true daughter, and she was glad she was able to reunite with Kahn, forgetting about Edenia and Jerrod, etc. Liu Kang urged Kitana not to take her slander to heart, so it was against the two royals! Kitana fought the best she could, but Sindel was more enduring than she was, especially stunning her with her excruciating shrieks, despite Liu strategizing her fans to deflect them. Her spear and levitation gave her the leg up in the showdown! Even her elongated hair was fatal when she used it to strangle her daughter!!

She didn't notice Liu Kang giving her mouth-to-mouth till she was resuscitated! He became emotional, and his worries and pure heart really warmed Kitana up to him... Nightwolf and Kung Lao rushed in, and for once Lao wasn't fazed of their intimacy. The Matokan sensed the immense darkness ahead, and Liu offered to stay with the women for a while.

Moments later, Nightwolf was about to use his conjured electricity within his axe onto Sheeva, but Sindel implored him to stop! Liu Kang and Kitana met up with them, and she convinced Sheeva she'd resume her role as Sindel's bodyguard. By the time the Soul Chamber was destroyed, the ceiling collapsed over it. Sheeva helped the heroes up to the Balcony and Kitana noticed Kung Lao was gone... Liu Kang was distraught, but she was one of his closest allies to convince him to keep fighting and win over Kahn for Earthrealm's, Edenia's and Lao's sakes...

She escaped with the other Kombatants from Kahn's collapsing tower and was relieved Liu Kang barely evacuated after being trapped thanks to Raiden's last-minute attempt! She anointed both Sindel and Sheeva as well as Asgaarth as her personal guards, even restoring her mother to the throne of Edenia. She began to warm up to the Champion more on account of his compassion and proving thrice he was Earthrealm's and Edenia's hero.

Shinnok's Uprising[]

Edenia was still recuperating from Kahn's conquest and Kitana and Sindel became its promising leaders. She was first seen 500 miles south from her mom's throne as she got involved with a brutal feud between the Shokan and the Centaurs at the Shokan city, Kuatan. She offered the Shokan to keep their lands, contrary to Kahn's extra land for the Centaurs. She was about to be attacked by an outraged Centaur until Goro arrived from above!! She was actually thrilled to see him as he was in hiding for the last couple years by his defeats. He protected her from the threats done by the Centaurs as he was unwilling to serve Kahn, even during the sudden assault in Edenia by Shinnok!

Kung Lao and Aiko met up with Kitana in the Living Forest while their team was being separated by the advancing Army of Darkness. She followed Lao's fatal Tornado as it was tearing apart the foot soldiers and she escaped from the destruction of the Palace in hopes of rallying up the Raptors; the Kombatants would never stand a chance against Shinnok and Quan Chi, and she was hoping to find Liu Kang, but the duo'd have to suffice. They were ambushed by a Saurian general at the middle of a desolated bog. The monk took the call to arms as the Zaterran spat acid into Kitana's face while Aiko tended her. Lao defeated him but by thr time Kitana recovered, she prevented him on killing the enemy. She made the enemy identify himself as Syzoth, a Saurian general. He escorted the trio to the Ruins of Zaterra which had been neglected for years.

The rebel convinced the other Saurians to be prepared and fight back the forces of Quan Chi and Shinnok. Kitana remembered the incident with Quan Ch manipulating the gem of Tetsurri. When the war's over, Kitana promises they can restore their civilization with the aid of other tribes, maybe evolve back into their humanoid selves.

Kitana arrived atop the hills and noticed Liu and Jade, and the two Edenian women reunited like long, lost sisters! Aiko complimented on their tearful reunion, though Jade's face fell once the reckless Tarkatans broke their cover! Kitana then suggested to save the prisoners, which jogged Jade's memory leading the heroes to a hidden slab into the underground prisons. She and Kitana stuck with Liu Kang at the trifecta, until he heard distant screams. Realizing it was Kung Lao, he turned and ran as he kicked the metal door away from its hinges! He arrived too late, and Raiden warned that Shinnok took Lao and Aiko into the Netherrealm. He offered the women to stay in Edenia while he and Fujin would assist the Champion to decimate Shinnok!

Nightwolf decided to perform a ritual allowing the compatriots' strength to cross over to the Netherrealm from Edenia. He offered Kitana to help him lead the spell since she had a close bond with the Champion, thus finding him at the horrid place. She was successful on tracing him and so the other heroes, including the rebels joined in.

The team cheered upon their triumphant return and Kitana was calling Liu's name which made them have a tight embrace! Until Liu remembered of Lao and Aiko's fate, and so Raiden took him to the Sky Temple. Several hours later, when the Edenians offered to extend their stay a little longer in China, the Edenians finally had their chance to explore the province. And Liu couldn't be more happier to show Kitana the rounds. Aiko and Jade wanted them to spend their downtime with each other, and so Jade offered to keep an eye on things while Kitana's away. Jade could've sworn that for the first time, she saw Liu and Kitana share a kiss...

A few days had passed since the end of the Netherrealm War. By the time Kung Lao and Aiko were finally out of recovery, they returned to the Wu Shi Academy with Liu, Sonya, Johnny, Kitana, Nightwolf and Kai. Mileena hid herself during the quarrel until it was just her and Kitana inside the throne room; she was jealous on never being the ruler of Edenia to which the Edenian replied she'd no right to rule it. Out of vengeance, Mileena uppercutted Kitana onto the throne in which, conveniently, there was a switch which forced the twisted sister into massive blades!

Goro accepted to sign Kitana's treaty at Kuatan between his kind and the Centaurs, the one that had been interrupted by Shinnok's invasion. Only to have IT be abruptly halted by a sudden assault from a glowing buzzsaw turning out to be Kung Lao's hat!! Kitana urged him to not start another kombat, and Goro challenged the former monk. Never backing down, Lao explained this was a ceremonial strike for his ancestor whom Goro killed several centuries ago. Goro questioned if he wished to continue the brutal feud, to which Lao replied he just wanted to make things even and have peace between them. Under the circumstances, Goro was impressed over Lao's pride and skills, which reminded him on how his ancestor was in nobility, looks and spirit. Goro realized the last descendant's his spitting image and if he wished to have a son, he shall carry on their legacy, and the Great Kung Lao shall be proud of his accomplishments, and Lao shall be proud of his as well... They shook hands and Kitana was successful.

Finally, Kitana was one of several warriors invited by Raiden during his final farewell to Earthrealm. She was relieved on him taking a long break, and he wished to see his children again someday...

Kitana's Vengeance attire

Mortal Kombat: Vengeance[]

Coming soon...


  • Ikran had a tough decision on who Kitana should be voiced as in her fic, either Talia Soto from the movie series, or Cree Summer from Defenders of the Realm; she eventually decided with the latter since it sounded more serene and nearly similar to her actress in Shaolin Monks.
