This article is about the Fire God that appears in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero. For another character that uses the Fire God title, see Liu Kang's page.

The Fire God is a character that debuted in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero and acted as one of the bosses.


He was one of four guardian gods assigned by Raiden to guard the Amulet of Shinnok in the Temple of Elements and acted as the god of fire in the Mortal Kombat universe. He had the ability to teleport, fire jets of flame, as well as to perform a burning chokehold. He was the final elemental god defeated by the elder Sub-Zero, allowing the ninja access to the amulet.

In the official Mortal Kombat 4 tie-in comic, the younger Sub-Zero attempts to make peace with the temple guardians, but discovers that they are gone. This could indicate that the Fire God was killed by Shinnok during his invasion, an idea further substantiated by Fujin's Mortal Kombat 4 biography screen stating that he and Raiden are among the few surviving Earthrealm gods.

Combat Characteristics[]

The Fire God wields absolute control over his namesake element, his body constantly wreathed in flames which protects him from ice magic, making Cryomancer abilities useless against him and his touch dangerous as shown by his preference for fire-enhanced chokeholds. The Fire God is able to issue streams of flames from his hands (not unlike Sektor's flamethrowers) either directly at his enemy or on the ground to force them back. Similar to Raiden, the Fire God is able to teleport and perform a rising air attack that resembles Raiden's "Torpedo/Electric Fly" technique, only performed diagonally instead of horizontally.

Other Media[]

The Fire God appears in the film Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, discussing with the Water Goddess about Earth's fate. During the climax of the film, he and the Water Goddess arrive to stop Shinnok's treachery and declare Mortal Kombat. After Liu Kang and his friends defeat Shao Kahn and his minions, the Elder Gods imprison Shinnok and have his son Raiden take his place.


In Liu Kang's non-canonical Mortal Kombat (2011) ending, he asks the Elder Gods to give him a chance to defeat Raiden and take his current position as protector of Earthrealm after defeating Shao Kahn. He succeeds in defeating the God of Thunder, and becomes the new protector of Earthrealm, becoming a new God of Fire (reflecting the element Liu Kang used in battle as a mortal). In Shang Tsung's non-canonical Mortal Kombat (2011) ending, Liu Kang's newfound godhood drives him mad, and Shang Tsung must learn how to control the power he received from devouring Shao Kahn's soul to defeat his old foe.

In Mortal Kombat 11, Liu Kang and Raiden become one being, turning into Fire God Liu Kang, who uses the combined power of fire and lightning to defeat Kronika.
