A mortal can't exist without his soul intact.
~ Jataaka commenting about Sub-Zero.

Jataaka is a minor villainess in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero. She is an assassin and member of the Brotherhood of Shadows within the Netherrealm where she serves both the necromancer Quan Chi and the dark Elder God Shinnok. She works with her two fellow demons Sareena and Kia who are also assassins from the Netherrealm.


Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero

Jataaka, Sareena, and Kia notice Sub-Zero in the Netherrealm. They are surprised to see a mortal. Jataaka mentions that a mortal cannot exist in the Netherrealm unless he or she is tainted with evil. Sareena decides to inform Quan Chi while the other assassins stay to monitor Sub-Zero's progress. Sub-Zero continues traveling through the Netherrealm where he reaches the Pyramid of Shinnok until he encounters Jataaka.

She guards one of the 3 crystals that allow access to Quan Chi's secret sanctum near the apex of the pyramidal temple. Sub Zero is forced to fight her for the crystal. She utilizes martial arts and a sword that shoots lasers. He manages to defeat her and collect the crystal before continuing his journey. Somehow, Jataaka manages to survive.

  • Jataaka was portrayed by two different actresses in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub Zero. Erica Grace portrayed Jataka in the cut scenes while Rachel Hebert portrayed the in-game version.
