Kobra could be described as Mortal Kombat's stock street brawler character. Infamous for his brutality and savage killings, Kobra shows no mercy to his opponents. Introduced in Mortal Kombat: Deception as the second of Kabal's recruits for the new Black Dragon, he is a gifted young martial artist, eager to put his skills to the test.

For years, Kobra wondered whether his martial arts training would work in a real fight. Even though he has been practicing his skills at his NYC karate school, no one was allowed to really hurt each other. So, he went to New York's back alleys in order for him to put his skills to the test.

At first, he started on street gangs. Then, he went to gangbangers and drug dealers. The thrill and excitement of fighting started to consume him, and he started killing his opponents. He continued his killing streak and added looting to his list when he robbed convenience stores and gas stations. Eventually, the NYPD caught him. At this point, Kobra had no clue as to how many lives he had destroyed.

When Kobra was being taken downtown, he heard gunfire and officers shouting. Kabal and Kira had found out about him and came to induct him into the new Black Dragon syndicate. After killing the officers and escaping, Kabal took Kira and Kobra to Outworld, where they worked for Havik, the cleric of Chaos who had brought Kabal back from the brink of death.

Isn't it a bit late for a Ken Masters rip-off? It seems like the MK dev team really ran out of ideas during the Deadly Alliance / Deception / Armageddon era... and it's also very possible they were feeling "left out" since other fighting game companies were doing epic crossover titles. But nobody wanted to play with Mortal Kombat... so they made their own crossover. lol. The creation mode of Armageddon even featured "Guile hair"... so you know Street Fighter in particular was on their mind. lol.

This Ken look-alike is pretty shameless. Slap a sword in his hand, give him some Japanese caveman-sounding grunts, and call him a new Mortal Kombat character? Good one Midway. This is why you aren't around anymore. lol. Thank goodness for Warner Bros money! If Midway kept on this track without Warner Bros, the MK series was going in a questionable direction with poop signs like these.
