~ Kitana's battlecry.

My blades say otherwise.
~ Kitana after Sub-Zero says she cannot win.

Kitana is a character in the Mortal Kombat series. She's the daughter of Sindel, the former queen of Edenia, and the majority of the games she was on the side of good. But in Mortal Kombat X, she appears as a minor villainess, alongside Liu Kang, Sindel, Smoke and Kung Lao, she can be considered as the secondary antagonist (or one of the main antagonists) in the next Mortal Kombat game.


Kitana was a heroine in a majority of the games and a fallen heroine turned in villain in Mortal Kombat X. Early in the series Kitana was a false antagonist just like her friend Jade, Kitana was taken from her family as a child in the original timeline and was raised by Shao Kahn. She was trained to be an assassin and turned evil and believed that Shao Kahn was her real father but after she learned the truth Kitana joined the side of good. She was really a hero under her stepfather's control Kitana has be on the side of evil unwilling more than one time. While Kitana seems to "Enjoy being a Revenant" mentioned by Jax Briggs in the alternate timeline Kitana also seemed to enjoy what she did as a false antagonist in the original timeline as while but also had doubt about the side she was on. Kitana felt bad after she learned the truth and showed her more kind and caring side at least to the good and innocence.

Alternate Timeline

Mortal Kombat (2011)

After being killed off by a soul power-enhanced Sindel (who in turn was defeated by Nightwolf, who sacrifices himself in a last-ditch attempt to stop her), her soul is now bound to Quan Chi. Kitana is one of the warriors the sorcerer orders to attack the Thunder God Raiden. She remarks that Raiden has sealed their fate to this place before attacking him with Nightwolf and Kung Lao.

Mortal Kombat X (comic series)

She kills the demon Moloch on Quan Chi's orders, and also sees the necromancer kill off Drahmin for their failure to capture Scorpion. The undead princess stands by Liu Kang as Quan Chi discusses how Shinnok's prized amulet is now exposed, Kitana states they should go after it, though Kung Lao reminds her that both Earthrealm and Outworld are on high alert after Havik's rampage, and suggests subterfuge using Shinnok's new acolyte D'Vorah, to aid them in stealing the exposed amulet.

Mortal Kombat X

Twenty-five years later, it is shown that Kitana is still an undead revenant serving Shinnok and Quan Chi. She, Kung Lao, Liu Kang, Smoke and Sindel make up as Quan Chi's primary enforcers since Shinnok was trapped inside his amulet for a very long time. Jax and Sareena lament that Quan Chi's corruption has turned the revenants into killing machines, with some of them seemingly (Liu Kang, Kitana, Sindel, and to a smaller degree, Kung Lao) enjoying being revenants. She replies to them, stating that she doesn't feel being victimized and felt that Raiden was toying around with her emotions. She and the remaining revenants are seen in Scorpion's chapter, where they pledge their allegiance to the recently- freed Elder God Shinnok before proceeding to take Johnny Cage hostage, attack the Sky Temple and poison the Jinsei - Earthrealm's life force. Kitana is then seen in Cassie Cage's chapter, where she and the revenants are discussing with D'Vorah on next steps after Earthrealm is destroyed, with the former princess suggesting an assault on the Elder Gods. After Quan Chi was slain by Scorpion, and Shinnok defeated by Cassie Cage, it is shown in the ending that Kitana has become empress of the Netherrealm, co-ruling alongside Liu Kang. Raiden, now bearing a menacing appearance, tosses the former Elder God Shinnok's still-living head at their feet, and warns them that he will not sit idly by and watch Earthrealm get invaded, but will go on a warpath and destroy anybody who dares to threaten it, and that he won't show any mercy or remorse. Her Mortal Kombat X's arcade ending shows that Kitana has a vision where she became queen of Edenia, after it was freed from Outworld. In this vision of a timeline unaltered, Shao Kahn had destroyed Earthrealm, yet Kitana united the other realms against the Outworld conqueror and defeated him. But this turned out to be a vision, and she blamed Raiden for her fate.


Kitana has come to enjoy being a revenant because she grew tired of being a victim she believes that she has become stronger as result of this. She has become envious, jealous, rude and egotistical. Instead of caring for her others Kitana now focuses on herself wanting to get her revenge, angry that Sonya Blade has replaced her as Raiden's greatest female fighter.

Kitana thinks of her former friends as her enemies this is seen during the Mortal Kombat X story and her intro quotes.


I probably killed some of them.
~ Kitana when Kenshi mentions his sword possess the spirits of his ancestors.

I infringe upon your territory.
~ Kitana after Scorpion says she is full of bitterness and hate.

Then you will perish.
~ Kitana after Sub-Zero says he will not kill her.

Much has changed since then.
~ Kitana after Sub-Zero mentions that they were once on the same side.

Do you prefer to guide me
~ Kitana after Raiden tells her she is misguided.

Raiden's princess
~ Kitana when she is fighting Sonya Blade.

Kitana awoke from this from this vision only to find herself in the Netherrealm. She was not the queen of Edenia, but a revenant of Hell. And she hated Raiden for it.
~ Kitana's arcade ending in Mortal Kombat X.

By orders of Shang Tsung, no one leaves the island.
~ Kitana scolding Sonya Blade.

He is greater than anticipated. I will ensure he does not reach final challenge.
~ Kitana to Shang Tsung about Liu Kang.

Do not underestimate me Shaolin!
~ Kitana to Liu Kang.

I am Kitana, Princess of Outworld. And I deal harshly with sharp tongued intruders!
~ Kitana before fighting Smoke.

This must be Kintaro. There's a yellow stripe going down your back.
~ Kitana purposely insulting Goro.

And I will make you regret it.
~ Kitana after Jax talks about fighting her.

Return with me Jackson Briggs. You have no choice.
~ Kitana trying to get Jax to rejoin the Revenants.

Foolish boy.
~ Kitana to Takeda.

Your very presence mocks me.
~ Kitana vs Cassie Cage.

There is a problem I must solve.
~ Kitana telling Jacqui she won't be happy until fixes her problem.



  • Kitana is 10,000 years old.
