To the next Nightwolf. Like all our sacred relics, the Nightwolf mantle belongs to the tribe. Any Matokan can prove worthy of its power. I enjoy imagining who will defend us next.


—Nightwolf in his ending narration in Mortal Kombat 11

The Matoka Tribe are a group of Native Americans that reside in Earthrealm.

Notable Members


  • The Matoka are most likely inspired by the Lakota people, a Native American tribe that exists in real life.
  • In an interaction with The Terminator, the latter claims that on his Earth, the tribe was "destroyed and forgotten".
  • The Matoka's "Great Spirit" is based after the Sioux's concept of Wakan Tanka, which was the term for the sacred or the divine. It's usually translated as: "The Great Spirit".
