Putrid Corpses are one example of the Undead.

The Undead are dead creatures who were killed in life and 'lived' within the infernal depths of the Netherrealm. They are not to be confused with Zombies or Wraiths.


These beings were typically skeletal looking creatures who were forever to be tormented within their fiery homeworld. Some were capable of ripping apart bloody chunks from their body and throw them at their enemies as a form of grenade attack. When encountering living creatures, the Undead often converged on fresh meat in order to devour it. Typically, they ambushed prey by suddenly emerging from the ground.

Liu Kang and Kung Lao encountered and defended themselves against numerous undead enemies in the Living Forest, the Soul Tombs, the Sea of Blood in the Wastelands of Outworld, and even the Netherrealm itself.

Shujinko encountered numerous undead beings within the city of Nekros as well as the burning plains outside.

Taven battles against all of the undead creatures including the Undead Revenants in the Netherrealm.

Taven was forced to fight numerous undead during his trek through the Netherrealm.
