History and Characteristic
The Amulet of Shinnok is a golden medallion with a bright emerald gem embedded in it and it was among the most potent and powerful of all mystic talismans within the realms. Millenia ago, Shinnok concentrated his divine power within it when he first created it, in a bid to control all of the realms. He was only narrowly thwarted by Raiden.
It would thereafter continue to be play a major role in the various Mortal Kombats and struggles for the realms; most notably, during the events of Mortal Kombat 4, when Shinnok would rise from the Netherealm in another bid for total conquest..
Before the events of Deception when Shujinko gathers all the 6 Kamidogu and placed them on an altar to the Elder Gods within the Nexus, then suddenly Onaga the Dragon King of Outworld upon his return from the dead reveals to Shujinko that he had not gathered all of them. And the seventh and final kamidogu left turn out to be Shinnok's amulet in the hands of the sorcerer Quan Chi before he arrrives in his homeworld to reclaim his kingdom and obtain the amulet to begin reshaping reality itself in his own image.
The Amulet of Shinnok is the only one reilc still revered as sacred within the twisted religion of the Brotherhood of Shadows because it was the fallen Elder God's most precious treasure and greatest creation.
What has become of the Amulet of Shinnok and the danger it poises remains uncertain.
Shinnok's Amulet is one of the many essences of power in the Mortal Kombat Universe. It symbolizes the very greatness in the magical arts. For every person whom wields the accursed amulet of Shinnok's power, will increase their powers drastically. For example, when Shinnok wields the amulet his main power, immortality, increased to the point of pure immortality, which is the ability to resurrect himself, to never be vanquished. Another use of the amulet is teleportation via portal. These portals may teleport you anywhere in any realm, as long as it is a real environment of course. Lastly it is said that if the Staff of Shinnok is combined with the Amulet, ultimate power will be achieved.
