Scouring the realms for his sworn enemies, Mavado vows that he will not rest until every last trace of the Black Dragon has been erased.
~ Mavado's Mortal Kombat: Armageddon Bio Card
Mavado is a high-ranking, commanding member of the criminal organization known as the Red Dragon and a villain in the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games. He will stop at nothing until the band of deserters called the Black Dragon Clan is forever eradicated.


Mavado is a merciless and cruel crime lord.

Unlike Kano who resorts to scare tactics and brute force, Mavado uses discipline and superior intelligence in kombat.

He has an antagonistic rivalry with the Black Dragon Clan: namely members such as Kano and Kobal.


Mavado is a skilled martial artist and wields a pair of hookswords as his weapons. He also uses a set of elastic ropes with prongs on the end to he uses in a slingshot like manner to deliver strong attacks or evade attacks.

Unlike the other characters, he doesn't have any supernatural abilities.



  • Despite the Red Dragon existing before the Mortal Kombat tournament, Mavado and Hsu Hao were the first Red Dragon members to be featured in the series in 2002.
  • In Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Mavado had the same voice actor as Sub-Zero.
  • He is one of the characters seen imprisoned in the Dark Prison stage in Deception. He was also available in the Krypt.
  • Despite Kabal getting his hookswords back, Mavado still uses the same hookswords in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.
