In the MK games, fighters exchange a few puns before a fight starts. They bring up previous events, mock each other or judge for taking the wrong side. Below, you will find opening lines of the classic roster characters. For the 2010’s roster addition, check out Part 2. And we also selected a few notable Ed Boon’s quotations.

  • One written in stone.

Liu Kang – Kung Lao

  • Feeling competitive, Kung Lao?
  • I feel like a winner.
  • You always presume too much.

Liu Kang – Kung Lao

  • You learned nothing at the Wu Shi.
  • I learned I’m better than the best.
  • Have you been drinking with Bo’Rai Cho?

Liu Kang – Kung Lao

  • I have been practicing.
  • All you do is practice, Liu Kang.
  • And you wonder why I’m the ‘Chosen One’?

Liu Kang – Kitana

  • You’ve been harsh with Kung Lao.
  • There’s no point in coddling him.
  • It is not your place.

Liu Kang – Kitana

  • Nothing will come between us.
  • Is that a proposal, Liu Kang?
  • A solemn vow.

Liu Kang – Kitana

  • I hear Kotal has reservations about us.
  • Don’t let his thoughts concern you.
  • Do we have more battles to fight?

Liu Kang – Kitana

  • So the crown’s making your head heavy?
  • There is no end to the stress.
  • Then let’s release some, Kitana.

Liu Kang – Raiden

  • Do you fear what you become?
  • We all choose our destiny, Liu Kang.
  • I have doubts, Lord Raiden.

Liu Kang – Raiden

  • You do not need to test my faith, Lord Raiden.
  • I am testing might, not faith.
  • Then I await your judgment.

Liu Kang – Raiden

  • I guess you knew it would end this way.
  • I did not have a clue.
  • Never change, Lord Raiden.

Liu Kang – Raiden

  • Are we the Deadly Alliance?
  • That is Kronika’s deception.
  • Or a recipe for Armageddon.

Liu Kang – Frost

  • All people are equal, Frost.
  • Is that so, ‘Chosen One’?
  • Actions, not titles, define us.

Liu Kang – Frost

  • There is still honor in you, Frost.
  • I don’t need you to tell me.
  • Then why do you display none?

Liu Kang – Sonya Blade

  • You fight well for an American.
  • We are the best fighters.
  • Only at projecting confidence.

Liu Kang – Sonya Blade

  • How long did your army train you?
  • Four years at the Academy.
  • The Shaolin train for life.

Liu Kang – Cassie Cage

  • You have a problem with me?
  • The problem’s with your Revenant.
  • I am not accountable for his crimes.

Liu Kang – Cassie Cage

  • You seem too eager.
  • Let’s get our kung-fu hustle on!
  • A little patience could save your life.

Liu Kang – Cassie Cage

  • I am honored to fight you.
  • I’m no Chosen One, Liu Kang.
  • You fought Shinnok and won.

Liu Kang – Jax

  • I’m not a soldier, Major.
  • The White Lotus signed a pact.
  • To cooperate, not take orders.

Liu Kang – Jax

  • Imagine if I had autonetic legs.
  • Trust me, it’d be an upgrade.
  • After this fight, we’ll see.

Liu Kang – Baraka

  • Walk away or get burned, Baraka.
  • Burn me, I’ll stab you.
  • Have a feeling you’ll try either way.

Liu Kang – Baraka

  • You gave Kitana your word.
  • She goes back on hers!
  • Peace requires compromise, Baraka.

Liu Kang – Baraka

  • You respect Kitana, yes?
  • But not her concubine, Liu Kang.
  • Concubine?!

Liu Kang – Jacqui Briggs

  • You’ve faced my Revenant.
  • That piece of s**t killed my friends.
  • I knew this felt personal.

Liu Kang – Jacqui Briggs

  • You can throw punches with the best.
  • Compliments won’t soften me up.
  • A few swift kicks will.

Liu Kang – Jacqui Briggs

  • Hope you came to train, Jacqueline.
  • It’s ‘Sergeant Briggs’ and I came to train you.
  • You will find me a difficult pupil.

Liu Kang – Erron Black

  • Are you enjoying these battles?
  • Happier than a dog with two tails.
  • Do you also enjoy getting hurt?

Liu Kang – Erron Black

  • Skilled masters make skilled warriors.
  • I don’t call anyone ‘master’.
  • Which explains your lack of skill.

Liu Kang – Johnny Cage

  • You have the blood of ancient warriors.
  • Defender of Earthrealm, born and bred.
  • Do not shame your ancestors.

Liu Kang – Johnny Cage

  • Actions speak louder than words.
  • Yeah, that’s why I make action movies.
  • With fake fighting.

Liu Kang – Kabal

  • You stand with your Revenant?
  • Kronika won’t let me become him.
  • Kronika lies, Kabal.

Liu Kang – Kabal

  • With your skill you should be Shaolin.
  • Shaolin don’t pay Black Dragon wages.
  • But we do retain our honor.

Liu Kang – Noob Saibot

  • Fires drive shadows away.
  • Until those fires die.
  • My burning is an eternal flame.

Liu Kang – Noob Saibot

  • I’m not your leader, Bi-Han.
  • You will govern the Netherrealm.
  • By my ancestors, I will not.

Liu Kang – Noob Saibot

  • You dishonor your clan.
  • The dead are my clan now.
  • The dead should rest, Bi-Han.

Liu Kang – Scorpion

  • The Shaolin’s losses have left many angry.
  • Reparations will be made, Liu Kang.
  • I fear it won’t be enough.

Liu Kang – Scorpion

  • You lost so much, you were easily turned.
  • Kronika manipulated my grief.
  • I observe, I do not judge.

Liu Kang – Scorpion

  • How did you survive the Shaolin’s traps?
  • The Shirai Ryu are ninja, Liu Kang.
  • Point well taken, Scorpion.

Liu Kang – Sub-Zero

  • One cold day will not freeze a river.
  • A cold winter will.
  • This fight will not last that long.

Liu Kang – Sub-Zero

  • I admire your discipline, Sub-Zero.
  • And I your honor, Liu Kang.
  • May you be as humble in defeat.

Liu Kang – Sub-Zero

  • Taking you down will be easy.
  • What did Kitana tell you?
  • All I need is a pail of water.

Liu Kang – Kano

  • You betrayed Earthrealm.
  • Loyalty’s for mugs.
  • We’re nothing without it.

Liu Kang – Kano

  • I’ve never understood you.
  • I’m just a bloke with appetites.
  • Which are never sated, Kano.

Liu Kang – Liu Kang

  • Something tells me you’re not White Lotus.
  • I am the Lord of Death.
  • I have a reputation to uphold!

Liu Kang – Liu Kang

  • We should unite to fix the timeline.
  • Don’t assume we share the same vision.
  • Must we eternally be cursed with kombat?

Liu Kang – Liu Kang

  • In your timeline, you defeat Shinnok?
  • Now I rule the Netherrealm.
  • Not the choice I’d make.

Liu Kang – Liu Kang

  • Master Shujinko taught me well.
  • In my timeline, I trained him.
  • That is a paradox.

Liu Kang – Jade

  • I’m glad Kitana has a friend like you.
  • I came for a fight, not flattery.
  • Outworld must not have small talk.

Liu Kang – Jade

  • How can I prove myself to Kitana?
  • By being strong enough to defend her.
  • Haven’t I proven this already?

Liu Kang – Skarlet

  • My blood would boil you.
  • It will give me the dragon fire.
  • Sounds like wishful thinking, Skarlet.

Liu Kang – Skarlet

  • Shao Kahn’s magic corrupted your heart.
  • Hunger corrupted me first.
  • Not everyone who’s hungry becomes evil.

Liu Kang – D’Vorah

  • Shao Kahn is not your master.
  • He’s our temporary benefactor.
  • Why should you die in his name?

Liu Kang – D’Vorah

  • Yours is an endangered species.
  • The Hive will kill you to survive.
  • Elder Gods forgive me for her extinction.

Liu Kang – D’Vorah

  • Give up and I will show you mercy.
  • Your Revenant shows none.
  • Whatever he is, he’s not me.

Liu Kang – Kotal Kahn

  • I understand you object.
  • Kitana’s consort must be of Outworld.
  • That’s prejudice, nothing more.

Liu Kang – Kotal Kahn

  • I expect we’ll see more of each other.
  • If our women have their way.
  • Isn’t it best to let them?

Liu Kang – Kotal Kahn

  • Must we fight, Kotal?
  • You trespass in Outworld.
  • I come at Kitana’s invitation.

Liu Kang – Geras

  • I will not enjoy your suffering.
  • Suffering is the seed of strength.
  • Then you’re about to get much stronger.

Liu Kang – Geras

  • Why is Kronika after me?
  • She wants to save you, Liu Kang.
  • By attacking the Shaolin!?

Liu Kang – Kollector

  • Time to fall with the new government.
  • Are you Kitana’s enforcer?
  • I’m a concerned guest of the Kahn.

Liu Kang – Kollector

  • Stop hounding Kitana, Kollector.
  • I seek only to serve the Kahn.
  • Your ‘service’ is no longer desired.

Liu Kang – Cetrion

  • Lady Cetrion.
  • Striking an Elder God is sinful.
  • You’re about to be a Fallen God.

Liu Kang – Cetrion

  • As a boy, I prayed to the Elder Gods.
  • I always listened, Liu Kang.
  • This is how you answer them?

Liu Kang – Cetrion

  • Kronika works with my Revenant.
  • For your benefit, Liu Kang.
  • Help I do not need, Cetrion.

Liu Kang – Johnny Cage

  • We come from different worlds, Johnny.
  • Aren’t you from Earthrealm too?
  • I mean, I come from the real world.
