The numerous deaths across all different media in the Mortal Kombat universe have yielded many memorable last words.

Video games[edit]

  • Spare me!
    • Who: Scorpion
    • Source: Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero
    • Notes: Says this to Sub-Zero, who proceeds to rip Scorpion's spine out. Scorpion is later revived as a Spectre.
  • Never, sorcerer!!! WAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!
    • Who: Liu Kang
    • Source: Mortal Kombat 4
    • Notes: Character was deceived by the Edenian Traitor, Tanya. He then turns to see Quan Chi and Shinnok. He tries to attack the latter, but kills him effortlessly, to which Shinnok replies "Fool". However, this ending is non-canon, and is therefore a what-if scenario.
  • You leave me no choice. Prepare to be destroyed!
    • Who: Monster
    • Source: Mortal Kombat: Deception
    • Notes: Character encounters Shujinko in the Nexus and claims to be the Champion of the Elder Gods before encountering him in Mortal Kombat. He is then defeated.

Mortal Kombat Armageddon[edit]

  • They are dark warriors, yet they resemble our own Lin Kuei!
    • Who: Unnamed Lin Kuei Warrior
    • Notes: Character warns Sub-Zero, the leader of the Lin Kuei Clan, that the Brotherhood of Shadow (under the command of Noob Saibot) have invaded the Lin Kuei Temple. The character is then killed by one of them by stabbing him in the back with a blade.
  • I...I...I couldn't risk detection. I didn't carry the records with me. They're aaaalll up here!
    • Who: Unnamed member of the Brotherhood of Shadow
    • Notes: Character informs the sorcerer Quan Chi that he did a job as commanded. Quan Chi then tells him to give him what he had found, but finds that he never brought back whatever he needed to begin with. Disappointed by his failure, Quan Chi walks up to the character and kills him by ripping his head off.
  • With the very weapons Father gave us to use against Blaze. And now I will use them to destroy you. Fight!
    • Who: Daegon
    • Notes: Says this prior to fighting Taven, the game's protagonist, but is ultimately defeated. May have taken part in the Battle of Armageddon, where he died along with almost all the other warriors.
  • Now face me...in Mortal Kombat!
    • Who: Blaze
    • Notes: Last lines before fighting Taven in Mortal Kombat, and, shortly after, is defeated and destroyed by him. As a result of his destruction, Taven becomes a full god and Protector of Edenia. However, Mortal Kombat (2011 video game) reveals that Shao Kahn defeated Blaze. The next game also returns to the period of the first 3 games, with slightly altered events. Taven's status after this is unknown.

Mortal Kombat (2011)[edit]

  • He must win!
    • Who: Raiden

  • That is not me!
  • We share blood. We are not brothers.
    • Who: Sub-Zero/Noob Saibot
    • Notes: Says the first quote to Scorpion when Quan Chi convinces him that Sub-Zero killed his family and clan. Sub-Zero is later revived as Noob Saibot. The second quote is said to Cyber Sub-Zero, Noob's brother. Cyber Sub-Zero defeats him and Nightwolf throws Noob into the Soulnado, causing him to dissolve. May not have died.
  • You see, Raiden? Earthrealm is free--

  • Yes, Emperor?
    • Who: Shang Tsung

  • Let's do this.
    • Who: Jax
    • Notes: Says this before fighting Sindel. Killed when Sindel pierces his throat. He is later revived by Quan Chi to serve him, until Raiden frees him from Quan Chi's spell in Mortal Kombat X.
  • Victory is mine, Shaman!
    • Who: Queen Sindel
    • Notes: Says this to Nightwolf before being killed by a lightning blast, killing Nightwolf as well. She is later revived by Quan Chi to serve him.

  • So much for standing around!
    • Who: Kurtis Stryker
    • Notes: Says this after being ambushed by Kahn's henchmen. Stryker is later killed by Queen Sindel. He is later revived by Quan Chi to serve him.
  • An anemic effort from ineffectual deities. Today, I become THE Elder God!
    • Who: Shao Kahn
    • Notes: Says this as he is about to finish Raiden off. However, before he can do so, the Elder Gods grant Raiden their power. Raiden easily defeats him, and the Elder Gods destroy Shao Kahn.

Mortal Kombat X[edit]

  • Amulet...
    • Who: Quan Chi
    • Notes: Says this to D'Vorah, who proceeds to throw it to him. His true last words are a spell he utters to summon the fallen Elder God Shinnok, before Scorpion beheads Quan Chi.

    • Who: Mileena
    • Notes: Says this to Kotal Kahn, while facing execution. D'Vorah proceeds to unleash her insects, via kissing, into Mileena's mouth, eating away the flesh of her head and insides.

Comics[edit]

Mortal Kombat X Comic[edit]

  • I expected a better fight, Kenshi. Figured you might kill a few of us. Instead you hid in the wilderness.
    • Who: Hsu Hao
    • Notes: Character is about to kill Kenshi, due to the latter betraying the Red Dragon clan. Before he could do so, Scorpion arrived to rescue Kenshi and his son, Takeda. Scorpion then throws his Kunai directly into Hsu Hao's cybernetic chest implant, and drags him towards the ninja spectre. Scorpion then concentrates Hellfire into his fist and punches Hsu Hao through his skull, killing him.
  • I'm the bitch with a blade.
    • Who: Suchin
    • Notes: Suchin was the lover of Kenshi and mother of Takeda Takahashi. When she learned that the Red Dragon were coming for Takeda, she comforted him before hiding in the next town over. When the Red Dragon arrived, insultingly demanding to know if she was Takeda's mother, Suchin drew a hidden sword and killed all three of them with a single blow each, but was killed herself when the last fired a handgun at her right as she killed him, the bullet tearing through her chest and killing her instantly.
  • With every drop of blood, I grow more powerful. Raiden never told you about the dagger's power, did he? Or its connection to Quan Ch-
    • Who: Forrest Fox
    • Notes: Character knocks Scorpion back with a beam of red light, and proclaims that he'll grow stronger with every drop of blood that is spilled. The demonic force mocks Scorpion for trusting Raiden and starts saying something about the Kamidogu daggers having a connection to Quan Chi, but Fox's throat is pierced by a sword and his head is cleaved in half by Takeda, ending the life of the possessed Shirai Ryu.
  • Reiko wants you ladies alive...But he didn't say in one piece.
    • Who: Mavado
    • Notes: Character tells Cassie Cage and Jacqui Briggs that Reiko wants both of them alive, and makes it clear he doesn't have to bring them intact and leaps at them. Although he manages to wound Cassie on the arm with his swords, Jacqui gets him in a lock, allowing Cassie to shatter one of his knees with a kick. Cassie then finishes Mavado by cutting his chest open with his own hook sword, killing him.
  • You will die before solving that riddle...
    • Who: King Gorbak
    • Notes: Says this to Kotal Kahn after the latter asks how to stop an unstoppable army. Kotal grabs Gorbak by the face, partially ripping it off before he crushes Gorbak's head between his hands, killing the Shokan king. His body is later brought back to Kuatan, where he was wrapped in bandages and ceremonially cremated.
  • Can't...GURK. Stop...GOCK! H-help... me...HRRAGH!
    • Who: Reiko
    • Notes: Character is screaming in agony because his body is tearing itself apart. His face begins to melt, and the supposed "god" can only scream in terrible pain. The Cleric of Chaos, Havik, then cruelly reveals that Reiko was never a candidate for godhood, and that his purpose was to be a vessel for a real god. Havik then gouges out Reiko's eyes with his thumbs and crushes his head, ripping the Amulet of Shinnok from Reiko's skull.
  • I...won't...fail..
    • Who: Kintaro
    • Notes: Character is overwhelmed when he is attacked from all sides by Jacqui Briggs, Cassie Cage, and Sonya Blade (the latter three of who are being possessed by the Blood Code). Sonya then rips Kintaro's head off with her bare hands.

Films[edit]

Mortal Kombat (1995)[edit]

  • No, Sonya, don't! Please! Come on, give me a break!
    • Who: Kano
    • Notes: Sonya grabs Kano using her legs. She then kills him by breaking his neck.
  • This puny mortal will be no problem. I'll crush him in one blow!
    • Who: Goro
    • Notes: Character is about to attack Johnny Cage, but the latter does his Crotch Punch, leaving Goro temporarily vulnerable. Cage then lures him to the narrow edge of a steep cliff. Cage fends off Goro, who falls off the cliff to his death.
  • Never!
    • Who: Shang Tsung
    • Notes: Character charges at Liu Kang, who begins punching Shang Tsung and after that, falls into a pit of spikes, and dies. Due to his death, the souls he had captured return to the Heavens, including Liu Kang's younger brother.

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation[edit]

  • This is not good.
    • Who: Johnny Cage
    • Notes: Character tries to attack Shao Kahn with his Shadow Kick, but the latter blocks it. Shao Kahn then kills Cage by snapping his neck. This death causes anger to Sonya Blade.
  • Suckers!
    • Who: Scorpion
    • Notes: Character has a brief appearance in the film. He fights Sub-Zero (younger one), and knocks him on the floor. The attack was merely a diversion as Scorpion grabs Kitana, and kidnaps her while disappearing. Character does not die, these are his last lines and does not appear for the rest of the movie, although he is briefly seen again one last time when Liu Kang is doing one of Nightwolf's tests in a dream state.
  • What's happened here should prove you alone are not ready for what's ahead.
    • Who: Sub-Zero (Young Version)
    • Notes: Character says this after fighting Scorpion, who had kidnapped Kitana. Sub-Zero warns Liu Kang that he is not strong enough to face Shao Kahn yet, and exhorts him to continue on to find the shaman, Nightwolf, before pursuing them. Like Scorpion, the character doesn't die, but does not appear for the rest of the film.
  • Death is the only way out. Major Briggs, Sonya Blade. Shao Kahn will be pleased.
    • Who: Cyrax
    • Notes: Cyrax fights Jax and Sonya. Sonya defeats Cyrax, but as a last resort, enters self-destruct mode, and the two escape just before the complex explodes.
  • It will never happen again.
    • Who: Rain
    • Notes: Shao Kahn knocks the character into a fire pit for not killing Kabal and Stryker (who never appear onscreen).
  • The energies they waste with their sniveling, I will use to capture souls, for you.
    • Who: Ermac
    • Notes: Character says this early on in the film, shortly after Rain's death. This is his only official line in the entire movie. Unlike the others present at the final battle, Ermac is no longer seen speaking. He does battle with Sonya Blade. In the midst of the fight, he makes Noob Saibot "spawn" from his body (though whether it's really the actual character is unclear, as there is no mention of his name). Sonya is left at a disadvantage and yells to Jax for help. Jax then assists her just after his fight with Motaro. Sonya defeats Ermac by using her legs to snap his neck, echoing Kano's similar death from the first movie.
  • You wish!
    • Who: Mileena
    • Notes: Character battles Sonya, who mistakes Mileena for Kitana. Sonya then kills her by doing a kick to the face.
  • The date's over.
    • Who: Sheeva
    • Notes: Liu Kang and Kitana are about to escape, but Sheeva tries to prevent them from doing so. However, she is killed after being crushed by a falling cage. Originally, she was to have a fight scene with Raiden, but was cut during filming, and instead, Raiden fought several Reptile-like Raptor Warriors.
  • We could never have stopped them alone.
    • Who: Jade
    • Notes: Shao Kahn has the character eaten by a living gargoyle, due to her failure at keeping the Earth Warriors from escaping.
  • Without your weapons, you are no match for Motaro!
    • Who: Motaro
    • Notes: Character remarks Jax about his cybernetic arms, thinking he is defenseless. However, upon hearing Sonya cry for help, Jax gains the upper hand and defeats Motaro.
  • Must I do everything for you?
    • Who: Shinnok
    • Notes: Character warned Shao Kahn about consequences for breaking the sacred rules. After Shao Kahn's defeat, Shinnok is banished to the Netherrealm by the Elder Gods.
  • Nothing can alter your destiny, nor mine.
    • Who: Shao Kahn
    • Notes: Shao Kahn gloats and taunts Liu Kang, which makes him angry. Liu Kang overpowers and defeats the Emperor, who dies when his corpse rots.
