It was not by chance that this struggle came to be,
the blame falls squarly upon my shoulders for giving evil the chance it needed and therefore fulfilling an ancient prophecy.

Raiden’s champions had failed to stop the Deadly Alliance from fully ressurecting the mummified army of the Dragon King.
In the end only Raiden stood between Earthrealm and total destruction.
It was Raiden who took on Quan Chi and Shang Tsung,
Earth’s last chance for freedom.

Raiden fought well against the two sorcerers and it seemed as victory was at hand but their combined might was too strong even for a thunder god.

Raiden was defeated...

The Deadly Alliance had won.
Their victory was short-lived, as suspicion and lust for power overcame both Quan Chi and Shang Tsung.
The former allies turned on each other. The Deadly Alliance is no more.
Quan Chi defeated Shang Tsung, and reveled in his conquest.

It is said there is only one true ruler of outworld...
...and that ruler had returned.


former emperor of outworld, the Dragon King, the prophecy had been fulfilled.
The Dragon King had indeed returned to Outworld to reclaim his army and impose his dominance.
Death awaited all who stood in his way.

And so it was that a new alliance was formed out of desperation,
sworn enemies joined forces to kombat a greater threat.

Raiden began to realize their combined might was not enough to defeat him.
There was only one chance left.

Raiden’s sacrifice was in vain.
For the blast had little effect on the Dragon King,
now Onaga has what he needs to shape the realms as he sees fit.

I was the fool who brought him this power. Only I can destroy this threat borne of deception.
