- First learned about this seven years ago, on a mission in Brazil to capture a wanted fugitive. When we got there, it tore through our unit in seconds. The target had superhuman abilities. It had the same marking you do, Cole.
- It's a birthmark.
- What'd you mean?
- He was born with it.
- It's not a birthmark, Cole. Means you've been chosen.
- Throughout history, different cultures all over the world reference a great tournament of champions. That dragon marking, I think it's an invitation to fight for something known as Mortal Kombat.
- These are your champions?
- I'm Sonya.
- That's Kano.
- I'm Liu Kang.
- Name's Jaxx.
- The fate of Earth is in our hands. No matter how many of my people you put in the ground, we will not fail. Kill them.
- I am Sub-Zero.
- Get over here.
- Finish them.
- Kano wins. You fucking beauty.
