he followed in your footsteps.

Preparing for the tournament.

- Grandfather ... it wasn't enough you filled my head with that nonsense?

- To save the world is not nonsense.

- Men fighting in a simple contest don't decide these things, Grandfather.

How can you, a wise man, believe this?

-We all believe in it...

including your brother.


- Liu Kang has been given the dream.

He is the Chosen One.

- No. He left our temple.

Turned his back on us.

Why have you come back?

- l want to represent the Order of Light at the Tournament!

- For what reason?

- The man who killed my brother will be there.

- That cannot be your only reason for going...

or you will fail.

-Oh yes, l forgot.

We're fighting for the fate of the world!

- That's why you left the temple and ran away, isn't it?

The Great Tournament was too much responsibility.

But vengeance...
