Khameleon made her debut as a secret character in the Nintendo 64 version of Mortal Kombat Trilogy, while the PC, PlayStation, and Sega Saturn versions instead had Chameleon, a similar male character. After being absent for a long time she made her return in the Nintendo Wii version of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon with a new design. Khameleon possesses the powers and abilities of every female ninja to appear before MK Trilogy and can use all of their weapons.

Khameleon's biography and ending screens in Mortal Kombat Trilogy describe her as the last female of her race, as Reptile is said to be the last male. They reveal that her race, the Saurians, also known as Raptors, were originally from Earthrealm, but a great war drove them out and killed many more. They found a new home in another realm, which they called Zaterra or "New Earth." However, Shao Kahn eventually found it, and after defeating them in Mortal Kombat, he drove the Raptors to near extinction and then merged the realm with Outworld.

Khameleon reached Reptile and told him the truth of how Kahn was responsible for the extinction of their race. However, Reptile fell under the emperor's influence once again and turned against her. Having failed in her attempts to slay Shao Kahn, she began to wander the realms contemplating a way to strike back at him. Later, during the events of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, she learned of the battle that would occur in Edenia and the gift of ultimate power that would be granted to the victor. Distressed by the fact that Kahn was also seeking this power, Khameleon sought out to attain it for herself so as to exact revenge on him and his followers for what he did to her race.

Yet another female ninja clone? Midway has no shame... NO SHAME I tell you. The idea of the character isn't bad. The fact that she can mimic all of the other female ninjas is a cool novelty, but there's obviously nothing that original about her as a design. At best, Khameleon was yet another "mysterious" MK character... and I'd say she even deserves a few cool points for being an "N64 exclusive" character! lol. Her later Armageddon re-design actually isn't too bad, but once again, there's not much exciting about her fighting style.
