MK Lie Made Reality In Later Games: A Bigger Bad Above Shao Kahn!

Back in Mortal Kombat II to 3, there was a lie that somebody else was above Shao Kahn, there was a bigger bad above Shao Kahn.  Rumors went from Noob Saibot to some unnamed character.  But later, the rumor was made real in one form or another.  It was said that this character possessed all the movesets of the other characters.

The idea that Noob Saibot was the "bigger bad" was disproven in his MK Trilogy bio data.  He was first made playable in some versions of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.  In MK Trilogy, Noob Saibot's bio data said that he was a member of the Brotherhood of the Shadow, where they worship a fallen Elder God known as Shinnok.  He made his first appearance in MK Mythologies: Sub-Zero (a stupid game I hate to mention) and he was in Mortal Kombat 4/Gold as a way too easy final boss (boo) but his moveset involved mimicking the other characters.  Too bad the CPU Shinnok never used that ability at all, thanks to the limited PS1 memory.  In Mortal Kombat Armageddon, he was the puppeteer of the Forces of Darkness, sending a clone of himself to lead them while he awaited for the final outcome behind the scenes.

In Mortal Kombat Deception, another bigger bad got introduced into full power.  He was first hinted in Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance but he was not the final boss.  In Deception, he was introduced as Onaga the Dragon King, the "True Emperor" of Outworld.  He was Shao Kahn's previous master and has been seeking to return to a new body.  Like Gargos in Killer Instinct, he manipulates a warrior in training so he can finally make his return.  He is one of Shao Kahn's rivals considering that he was overthrown by treachery.  Well in Noob's non-canon ending, he does end up becoming the Netherrealm's new ruler as well. =P
