Appearances in Other Media
In the 2021 film Mortal Kombat, the Order of Light is located in Raiden's Temple. Unlike previous versions, which show the temple as a building with a sparring arena for a balcony in the mountains, the Temple in the film is a hidden fortress within a series of underground man-made caves in an undisclosed salt desert. According to Liu Kang, the once-flourishing society had since been forced into hiding after the last 9 losses in the Tournament, as there had been nobody left to defend the Order. As a result, the Order of Light now lives with Raiden at his temple, as they no longer have a temple to call their own. Lord Raiden's temple features a number of murals that depict the history of Mortal Kombat. Lord Raiden defends the temple using an energy barrier, but it becomes the site a major battle between the forces of Earthrealm and Outworld after Kano betrays the Earthrealm forces by downing the barrier.
