If you’re a fan of Kung Fu style games and want to dress up as an extremely powerful warrior, then Liu Kang is for you! Liu Kang is one of the original and most powerful fighters in the Mortal Kombat video games. He is one of Earthrealm’s greatest warriors with an appearance similar to Bruce Lee. His arch-rival is the evil Shang Tsung, who is the typical sorcerer that is a backstabbing, traitor.
He began as a violence hating hero who fought back just enough to defeat his opponents. In the first Mortal Kombat game, Liu Kang did not finish his opponents with gruesome fatalities. As the series progressed, his moves and fatalities became more and more gruesome. The point is, he’s more of a bad boy than you might think. If that’s something you find to your liking, you’ve found the perfect character to cosplay!
