You will join me in Hell!

Scorpion is a guest character and resurrected ninja in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He appears as a DLC character for $4.99 or for free for those with a Season Pass as well as buying the Ultimate Edition of Injustice. He was released on June 11th. He is a power user.


Scorpion was killed by the Lin-Kuei assassin Sub-Zero. He was resurrected and given a chance for vengeance in the Mortal Kombat tournament. Before he could finish Sub-Zero, he was transported to another world.

Powers and Abilities

Scorpion is an undead wraith spawned from the Netherrealm, imbued with the very fires of the realm to call and command at his will. Prior to his unlife, he was a skilled assassin and ninja who had mastered the rope dart, a dagger attached to a rope that he would throw to impale his adversary before yanking them back over. After being reborn as an undead, he replaces the rope with a chain and can imbue the blade with hellfire. As an assassin, Scorpion is well versed in the art of combat, able to fight just as well with his hands as he can with a twin set of swords he wields on his back.

His nature as an undead wraith affords him greater durability than he possessed in life, and his control over hellfire enhances his lethal prowess. Scorpion can imbue his fists or weapons with hellfire for added damage, use it to teleport around the battlefield, usually behind his opponent, and even conjure small portals into the Netherrealm to summon a demonic familiar to snatch his opponent.

Special Moves

  • Bloody Spear: Scorpion fires his chain and kunai from under his arm, and when it connects with his opponent he yanks them towards himself while shouting, "GET OVER HERE!" or "COME HERE!" and when they reach him, he uppercuts them with a flame covered fist. The Meter Burn version has the opponent stop just when they reach Scorpion.
  • Hell Fire: Scorpion summons the fires of the Netherrealm under his opponent, burning them. The Meter Burn version has Scorpion completely consume them in hellfire.
  • Teleport Punch: Scorpion vanishes in a burst of hellfire and reappears behind his opponent, punching them. The Meter Burn version has him deliver a hellfire covered uppercut after the first punch. Can be done in the air.
  • Leg Takedown: Scorpion slides across the ground, tangles his legs with his opponent's and knocks them down.
  • Flip Kick: Scorpion delivers a hellfire covered flipkick to his opponent's jaw.
  • Air Throw: Scorpion catches his opponent midair, spins himself and them and throws them back down to the ground.

Character Trait

Shroud of Flames: Scorpion is encased in an aura of flames from the Netherrealm, which does a moderate amount of damage when activated. While the trait is active, a small amount of damage is done to the opponent if Scorpion is in close proximity to him/her.

Other Moves

  • Grab: Scorpion grabs his opponent and summons a portal of hellfire under their feet where a demonic skeleton grabs them, pulling them partially down, and Scorpion stomps on their head, sending them into the portal, and they are spat back out of another portal.

Super Move

  • The Netherrealm: Scorpion teleports behind his opponent and kicks him/her in the back, teleporting both him and the opponent to the Netherrealm. He then raises two walls from the ground and launches two spears into the opponent and lights him/her in hell fire. Dragging his opponent by his spears, Scorpion then slams him/her into both walls. Finally, he leaps into the air and slams the opponent into the ground, teleporting them both back to the original arena.


The fool in the red cape had been dealt with. Now Scorpion would learn how he came to this place. Heretofore, only the sorcerer Quan Chi or the fallen Elder God, Shinnok, could have summoned him. Scorpion's answers appeared in the form of Trigon, who accused Scorpion of deserting Trigon's demon army and stealing from him the glory of besting the High Councilor. The two faced each other in a titanic struggle. Scorpion emerged the victor and assumed control of Trigon's invasion force. Soon this strange new land would be his to rule.


Scorpion wears a more chitinous version of his yellow ninja garb over a black bodysuit, with a red gem on the chest, and bladed gauntlets along with scorpion themed grieves over his legs. His twin blades have hilts shaped in to look like curved scorpion legs to match his stinger shaped kunai. He wears a black and yellow mask over his face and black hood over his head.


  • Scorpion's rival Sub-Zero appears in his intro along with the emperor of Outworld, Shao Kahn. The necromancer Quan Chi and the fallen Elder God Shinnok are also mentioned in his ending.
  • Scorpion was revealed to be in the season pass along with Batgirl, General Zod and Lobo through data stored in the game's code.
  • Patrick Seitz reprises his role from Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and Mortal Kombat (2011).
    • As in all the games, Ed Boon provides the vocals for Scorpion's cries of "GET OVER HERE!" and, "COME HERE!"
  • Scorpion's design in Injustice was created by legendary comic book artist Jim Lee, and is patterned after his namesake arachnid.
    • This design inspired Scorpion's new look for Mortal Kombat X.
    • Jim Lee later returned in Injustice 2 to design Scorpion's nemesis, Sub-Zero.
  • Scorpion was made available one week earlier for Season Pass owners.
  • Injustice: Gods Among Us marks it the first time that Scorpion was a downloadable character. In his other appearances, he was playable from the start or as an unlockable character.
  • His clash line against Batman, "You are no Sub-Zero" is a possible reference to MK vs. DCU, as Batman and Sub-Zero were rivals in that game.
    • Also in MK vs DCU, Scorpion initially mistakes Batman for Sub-Zero in disguise.
  • When Scorpion is defeated, he is seen on his knees with his head spinning. This is a reference to the Mortal Kombat "dizzy" state that signals the time to finish your opponent with a Fatality.
  • Scorpion's outro pose is based on the pose of the NetherRealm Studios logo.
  • Scorpion is the only character in Injustice: Gods Among Us to not have any reference to being on the Regime or Insurgency side.
  • Scorpion's Injustice skin can be unlocked in the game Mortal Kombat X by beating 100 ladders in the mobile version of MKX.
