The Shadow Priests are a fanatic cult of nameless royal sorcerers in plum and sometimes black hooded-robes from Outworld, and they are the "holymen" of Emperor Shao Kahn, one of the most powerful and deadly villains of the Mortal Kombat fighting game series.


The Shadow Priests are Shao Kahn's top and royal sorcerers, led by Shang Tsung. They were used in the plot to reincarnate Queen Sindel for the invasion plan of Mortal Kombat 3, and possibly helped with the creation of Mileena. They appear as enemies in the Outworld levels of Shaolin Monks, in which they also operate the device that restores Shang Tsung's youth.
