Villain Overview
Pretty boy ain't gonna save ya this time!
~ Kano to Sonya Blade.

Kano is the treacherous, arrogant and crude leader of the Black Dragon Clan, and an antagonist from the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games. He holds a sick infatuation with Sonya Blade (much to her disgust). He is also a supporting antagonist in the 1st Mortal Kombat game, a minor antagonist in Mortal Kombat II, a major antagonist in 3-Armageddon, an anti-villain in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, one of the supporting antagonists (along with Noob Saibot and Mileena) in Mortal Kombat 9 and a major antagonist in Mortal Kombat X.



Powers and Abilities

Kano is very opportunistic, manipulative and resourceful, so he mostly engages in fights he has an advantage in. He usually uses his Black Dragon Members (Tasia, Tremor, Jarek, No Face, and Thugs) to engage his enemy to wear them down, so he can have the advantage in the fight. Although Kano uses others to his advantage, he is extremely adept in hand-to-hand combat and displays great prowess with knives, particularly his signature weapon: a pair of butterfly knives.

In addition to his skills, Kano has had several cybernetic upgrades throughout his body, particularly his Cybernetic Eye, which he can omit a laser beam from. Another of Kano's special moves is his ability to tuck into a cannonball and propel himself toward his opponents. Kano is also shown to be incredibly strong and powerful, as he can punch through a person body. He is even capable to punching through metal, ripping out vital organs, ripping off someone's head, and even rip out an entire skeleton out of his opponent with his bare hands.
