the amulet and shinnok's staff


The Amulet of Shinnok is among the most potent and powerful of all mystic talismans within the realms.

It is a bronze medallion with a green gemstone embedded in its center. The four sections of the amulet are etched with the elemental forces of Wind, Earth, Water, and Fire. Each includes alchemical symbols, shapes, and parts of I Ching trigrams, all of which pertain to their respective element.

Millennia ago, Shinnok created the amulet as a central focus of his divine power, in a bid to control all of the realms. He was only narrowly thwarted by Raiden. For ages thereafter, the amulet remained mostly unknown and hidden deep within the Temple of Elementals in Earthrealm. It was later retrieved by the original Sub-Zero after the Lin Kuei was so hired by Quan Chi.

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 called the Sacred Amulet which turns out to be Shinnok's amulet in the hands of the sorcerer Quan Chi before he steals all of them and arrrives in his homeworld to reclaim his kingdom and obtain the amulet to begin reshaping reality itself in his own image.

The sacred Amulet of Shinnok is the only one relic still revered as divine within the twisted religion of the Brotherhood of Shadows because it was the malevolent Elder God's most precious treasure and his greatest creation.

What has become of the Amulet of Shinnok and the danger it poises remains uncertain.
