~ Drahmin, before attacking Taven.

Drahmin is an Oni from the Netherrealm and a villain from the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games.


Early life

Legend of Drahmin

The origin and legend of Drahmin.

Drahmin was a cruel human landlord from Outworld, and a warlord. After a lifetime of sin and his death, his soul was cast down to the Netherrealm for his crimes. Driven mad in its depths, he eventually accepted his fate and became Drahmin, the Oni tormenter. He later met a fellow oni, Moloch, and began wandering the Netherrealm, seeking out and torturing souls they came across.

Eventually Drahmin and Moloch met up with the sorcerer, Quan Chi, who was fighting Scorpion. Unable to fight the mighty specter, the sorcerer asked for the oni's assistance and so the two intervened and drove the ninja off. However Drahmin and Moloch seek retribution, when Quan Chi, who do not kept his part of the bargain, escaped the Netherrealm. The bargain was that he would take them with him via an ancient structure that was supposedly a gateway to other realms. However the sorcerer realized that this was a dormant portal that he could activate with Shinnok's amulet. However Scorpion chose this moment to attack and while Drahmin and Moloch fought him, Quan Chi opened a portal to Outworld through which he escaped. But the three followed him and the two oni found themselves in a different part of Outworld with no sign of Quan Chi or Scorpion.

At some point, Drahmin ended up back in the Netherrealm and spent a few years wandering the cliffs, devouring anyone he encountered. When Taven came to the Netherrealm looking for Daegon, he encountered Drahmin and fought him, successfully defeating the oni.

In his Armageddon ending, Blaze's godlike power fused with Drahmin's mask, transforming him to three times his normal size. He then turned on Moloch and killed his former partner, though his bloodlust had only begun.

Powers and Abilities

Drahmin has superhuman abilities granted from being an oni, which, when combined with his Iron Club and unrestrained rage, makes him a deadly foe. He can also form the flies around his body into a makeshift projectile.




  • Drahmin's reappearance in the Netherrealm in Armageddon may be because he was destroyed along with Shang Tsung's palace by Raiden unleashing his godly essence in the opening to Deception.
