Shinnok's Fall from Grace in Mortal Kombat


Shinnok who was first introduced in Mortal Kombat Mytholigies, appeared in MK Annihilation as father to both Shao Kahn and Raiden (NOT CANON) and the rather underutilized final boss of MK4/Gold, I thought he had an interesting storyline...


What was known in-game of Mortal Kombat Mythologies was that Shinnok was the fallen Elder God.  So he had his fall from grace, he was kicked out of Heaven for rebellion against the Elder Gods.  So I'd assume that his rebellion was well caught, the Elder Gods banished him into the Netherrealm.  So why did he suffer in the Netherrealm?  Here's my assumption if we are to use Taoist/Buddhist cosmology:


Perhaps for some time, he was under the torture of King Yama who had justly condemned him to suffer in the Netherrealm.  But one day, may have had collaborated with Quan Chi a resident of Hell.  So if Shinnok had some rebellion going on, he even overthrew King Yama who was in charge of the Ten Courts.  So he basically overthrew the ruler of the underworld so he can take over Hell. So possibly Shinnok collaborated with some ogres including Moloch and Drahmin to dethrone King Yama.

Just my speculation of his fall from grace...
