Jarek is a member of the Black Dragon criminal organization and a villain from the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games.
Jarek is skilled fighter and has the ability to perform Kano's cannonball attack, but he also has a vertical version of it. He can also stomp to create a small but powerful tremor and uses a rope that allows him to lasso an opponent or anchor himself to the ground while he flies at his opponent. Jarek can also shoot a laser out of his eye to perform one of Kano's fatalities, but there is no explanation as to how he does this. He also has a star shaped blade that he uses as a throwing weapon.
- In early versions of Armageddon, Jarek was going to have the Leaf Blades as his weapon.
- Jarek used the Dragon fighting style in Armageddon that Sub-Zero had for Deadly Alliance and Deception.
- Jarek is the one of the 2 playable members of the Black Dragon whose name does not begin with "k". The other is Tremor.
