A Tanto ("短刀" "Short Sword", or "Dagger") is the smallest sword carried by the samurai, meant for close quarters combat. It is also used in seppuku, the ritual suicide used to regain honor through death, also known in Mortal Kombat as Hara-Kiri.

In Mortal Kombat (2011), it is used as a weapon by Skarlet.

In Mortal Kombat 11, it is seen above Scorpion's katana in his waist. Skarlet uses them as well, however they received an update in appearance, as well as seemingly being made from blood, or at least able to be conjured from blood during her intros.
