Mortal Kombat (2011 Video Game)
Richard Epcar: Raiden
Shao Kahn : [Intro] Where are the Elder Gods, Raiden?
[Walks towards a defeated Raiden and picks him up]
Shao Kahn : Their pathetic Mortal Kombat shackles me no longer.
[Punches Raiden in the face several times and then throws him, while in the air Raiden's amulet hits the ground and shatters]
Shao Kahn : They masquerade as dragons, but are mere *toothless* worms.
[Kahn's hammer appears in his left hand and puts his right foot on Raiden]
Shao Kahn : My venom spreads. It is the end of all things.
[Kahn then glows red with fire]
Shao Kahn : Armageddon.
Raiden : [In desperation] Stop!
Shao Kahn : [Picks up Raiden] It is done. Your time has passed.
Shao Kahn : Ages wasted in foolish resistance. Now is the dawn of *my* rule.
[Kahn laughs as Raiden picks up what is left of his amulet and begins to speak something in a asian-like language]
Shao Kahn : Yes. Pray to the world. As your world ends.
[Kahn then raises his hammer]
Raiden : [His amulet glows as his eyes turn blue] He... must win.
[as Kahn's hammer hits Raiden, the events of the Mortal Kombat timeline flashback until it reaches to the beginning of the Earthrealm tournament]
Liu Kang : [Seeing Raiden flinch] Lord Raiden, what is wrong?
Raiden : Strange visions.
[Then, strange noises occur and Raiden takes off his amulet and notices it has cracked]
Liu Kang : Your amulet.
Raiden : It is nothing, Liu Kang. The tournament begins.
Raiden : [after seeing Johnny Cage defeat Baraka] You fought well.
Johnny Cage : Thanks. Nice hat.
Liu Kang : You should be more respectful of Lord Raiden. He's the protector of Earthrealm. The God of Thunder, the...
Johnny Cage : [Interrupts] Look. I don't know what kind of role playing you guys are into, but count me out.
Liu Kang : [Johnny is about to walk away but Liu Kang stops him] This tournament is more than a chance for personal glory. We are fighting for the very surivial of Earthrealm.
Johnny Cage : What are you talking about?
Raiden : Your last opponent was Tarkatan. He was born with those blades.
Johnny Cage : [Not believing a word Raiden is saying] Yeah. Those things are real.
Raiden : He represents Outworld. Had you lost, the Emperor Shao Kahn would come 1 step closer to physically absorbing *our* world into his.
Johnny Cage : Outworld, yeah. Right, right.
Raiden : The Elder Gods created the Mortal Kombat tournament to give Earthrealm a chance to defend itself. But if we lose this time, Shao Kahn will conquer all.
Johnny Cage : [Shrugs off Raiden] Dun, dun, duuuuunnnn. Look, guys. I'm an actor. I save the world for the cameras. If this emperor is *really* a threat? Call the military. Me? I've got a date with a blonde. Ciao.
Liu Kang : What do you see in him?
Raiden : He is a hero, Liu Kang. Though he may not yet know it.
Raiden : [approaches Kung Lao, who is disguised as one of Shang Tsung's Masked Guards] I know it is you, Kung Lao. The Shaolin Minks chose Liu Kang to represent your order in the tournament.
Kung Lao : [slightly annoyed] I am Liu Kang's equal.
Raiden : That remains to be seen.
Kung Lao : Watch and see.
[removes his disguise]
Kung Lao : I accept the challenge.
Liu Kang : [surprised] Kung Lao?
Kung Lao : Never mind the Lin Kuei. Now you face a Shaolin.
Smoke : [after being saved from cyborgs] Thank You, Lord Raiden. I am called Smoke. Why are you here in Outworld?
Raiden : To participate in a tournament to save Earthrealm. Join us Smoke.
Smoke : Forgive me, but if Sektor was searching for me then he is hunting Sub-Zero as well.
Johnny Cage : Sub-Zero? Call me crazy with a K... but didn't we see him die?
Smoke : The Grand Master intends to turn every Lin Kuei into a cyborg. My friend is in danger.
Raiden : The Tournament. I have a feeling your friend will be there.
Johnny Cage : There she is. Sonya, you alright? Hey, looks like you found him.
Johnny Cage : What's up, Sarge?
Sonya Blade : He's a m...
[Seeing Raiden coming in and attending to Jax]
Sonya Blade : Hey, what are you doing?
Johnny Cage : It's okay. He's cool.
Sonya Blade : Jax.
Johnny Cage : Seriously, he's cool.
[Raiden uses his powers to heal Jax]
Jax Briggs : That's amazing.
Johnny Cage : Told 'ya. Turns out, he's a god.
Sonya Blade : Thank you, Raiden.
Raiden : Graditude is unnecessary. I have forseen events, like memories of my future. They lead me to believe that you are all connected to Earthrealm's fate.
Liu Kang : What have you forseen?
Raiden : In my visions, Shao Kahn becomes invincible. He destroys all life in Earthrealm. We will all die. I believe these flashes are a guide to defeat Shao Kahn. But disrupting the flow of time could have serious consequences
Johnny Cage : I'm not worried. I bet you can win this thing no problem.
Raiden : Unless directly challenged, I can not participate.
Johnny Cage : What should we do, instead of standing around looking pretty?
Raiden : For now, the tournament must run it's course.
Sonya Blade : Alright, then. We're with you, Raiden.
Kitana : [after defeating Johnny Cage and Smoke] Shao Kahn wants death to follow Kombat. I will give it to him.
Raiden : [Coming in] Perhaps Liu Kang was wrong about you. Or perhaps he's sensed like I do, that there is conflict within you.
[Helps up Cage]
Johnny Cage : Thanks.
[Bends his neck]
Johnny Cage : Ow. You couldn't have seen *that* in one of your hot flashes?
Raiden : Something wispers to you that circumstances should be different. That *you* should be different. You are much more like Sindel than Shao Kahn.
[Then Raiden has a vision of Sindel]
Raiden : But, she is dead.
Kitana : My mother *is* dead, yes. Why do you...
Raiden : [Interrupts] You need answers, Kitana. I can help you find them if you will trust in me. Go to Shang Tsung's flesh pits. Much will be revealed there.
Kitana : The flesh pits? But, I'm forbidden to...
Raiden : [interrupts again] Yes, you are, and why is that?
Kitana : I don't know. Tell me.
Raiden : You must discover your true path... alone
Kung Lao : [after celebrating after his victories with the Outworld audience booing him] See Raiden, Earthrealm is fre...
[Shao Kahn steps in and breaks Kung Lao's neck]
Raiden : Kung Lao!
Liu Kang : No!
Raiden : I will rip the flesh from your bones!
[Liu Kang comes in and wrestles Kahn to the ground]
Shao Kahn : Witless boy. Do you know who I am?
Liu Kang : The murderer of my friend.
Shao Kahn : I am Shao Kahn! Conquorer of worlds! You will taste no victory.
Liu Kang : You will taste your won blood.
[Fights Kahn and defeats him]
Liu Kang : On your feet!
[His left fist glows with fire]
Liu Kang : For Kung Lao, the Shaolin and Earthrealm!
[Liu Kang then punches Kahn in the chest and Kahn falls to the ground dead]
Shang Tsung : I can not believe. Earthrealm has won.
[the sky then glows]
Raiden : The Elder Gods have spoken. Earthrealm is free from Shao Kahn forever. But the price of victory was almost too steep to pay. Kung Lao's death was my fault. I encouraged him. Our triumph was not meant to be achieved this way.
[to Liu Kang]
Raiden : I see now "he must win" must refer to you. But to prevent Armageddon, you needed to defeat Shao Kahn, not Shang Tsung.
[Raiden then takes off his amulet to look at it, only to find it cracks further]
Raiden : It can not be. Shao Kahn is dead. But the future remains unchanged.
