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.

    [Throws Raiden] 

    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.

    [Walks away] 

    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.

    [Fights Scorpion] 

  • 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.
