Kotal Kahn is a warrior from the realm of Osh-Tekk. Kotal Kahn visually resembles an Aztec eagle warrior, the elite soldiers of the Aztec empire. His headdress also resembles the one used by Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec God of the wind. The realm of Osh-Tekk was once ruled by Kotal K'etz, his father, but was later merged with Outworld. As an Osh-Tekk, he is the last of his kind, however, he was considered a god among the Mayans, who named him "Buluc", their god of war - the full name given being Buluc Chabtan. He became the ruler of Outworld, after he usurped Mileena having first served beneath her. Unlike previous Outworld emperors, Kotal Kahn is uninterested in conquering other realms, preferring instead to focus on internal affairs and stabilizing the realm. For this reason, he is strongly opposed to liberating realms that are already under Outworld's domain, believing that a united Outworld would prove stronger against its enemies.

In Mortal Kombat 11, it was revealed that he has a romantic relationship with Jade. Kotal Kahn revealed that he was once Shao Kahn's general until he and his fellow Osh-Tekk were betrayed and ambushed by his former master but Kotal Kahn was kept alive for Shang Tsung's experiments. After Shao Kahn's death by Raiden, Kotal Kahn broke free.

Ohh-Tekk? Tekk...As in Tekken? Yeah, it looks like Boon and Team NetherRealm really wanted Ancient Ogre to appear in Mortal Kombat... so they just copied Namco's homework and changed a few things so it didn't look too plagiarized. Congratulations. lol.

In any case, Kotal Kahn turned out being one of the cooler MKX designs. His moveset has some pretty interesting attacks with decent animations (along with some weird not-so-cool ones). Overall, Kotal Kahn is a pretty brutal bastard... and a design that works for the MK series.
