The Amulet of Raiden is a mystical talisman that belonged to the Earthrealm's thunder god, Raiden. Raiden's Amulet first appeared in Mortal Kombat (2011).

The Amulet of Raiden.

This golden, sapphire amulet with the Mortal Kombat dragon icon was originally created by the Elder Gods and was given to Raiden as a gift.

During the Mortal Kombat (2011) Story Mode, a future version of Raiden, while fighting a losing battle against Shao Kahn uses the shattered remains of his amulet to send his past self visions of the future, as well as the message "He must win."

Throughout the game, Raiden periodically checks his amulet, noticing it cracking more and more as the events progress - indicating that the future he seeks to prevent is drawing closer despite his efforts. Near the end, the amulet is shattered by Shao Kahn just as it was in the future. After the defeat of Shao Kahn, the amulet is restored to its intact self, indicating that the future has finally been changed.

A different amulet appears under Liu Kang's ownership in Mortal Kombat 1. It appears to be a means of harnessing the power of lightning and thunder that Liu Kang originally inherited from Raiden after his divine ascent in Mortal Kombat 11. Liu Kang would give the amulet to the new Raiden in preparation for the Earthrealm-Outworld tournament, granting him the same power as his predecessor.


  • When the amulet falls off of Raiden in the alternate timeline, the cracks on it are gone.
  • In Mortal Kombat 11, Johnny Cage asks in a pre-fight intro why Raiden doesn't use the Amulet, Raiden states that it was destroyed in the time merger, despite this, it can still be seen in Story Mode, and is able to be selected as a customization option.
