Researched by: Shang Tsung

Shang Tsung is a video game character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He was portrayed by Ho Sung Pak in the first game, Philip Ahn in the second game and John Turk in the third and subsequent games. He was the final boss in the first Mortal Kombat game.

A powerful and deadly wizard and primary antagonist in the Mortal Kombat series, Shang Tsung is a shapeshifter who absorbs the souls of those he slays in order to maintain his youth and power. He has morphed into various physical forms throughout Mortal Kombat.

Most of Shang Tsung's past remains shrouded in mystery. According to the first Mortal Kombat comic, he was cursed by "his gods" not only to kill his enemies, but to take their souls as well. Only in this way would he hold off a grim fate: to age rapidly and die prematurely. As a side effect of his consuming the souls of others, Tsung also absorbed their memories and knowledge, an ability which would greatly benefit him years later.

At some point, Tsung entered the Mortal Kombat tournament. He overcame all competition and became Grand Champion. How long he retained the title is unclear; however, the overconfident Tsung would eventually be defeated by the legendary Shaolin warrior monk, the Great Kung Lao.
