Rayden: [narrating] Mortal Kombat is not about death, but rather the preservation of life. Liu Kang and a few chosen fighters from the Earth realm defeated Outworld sorcerer Shang Tsung. According to the rules of Mortal Kombat, their victory preserved the safety of the Earth for one more generation. Our chosen ones were returned to Liu Kang's home on Earth, only to enjoy a brief period of peace... for someone from Outworld has a different point of view.
Rain: My squads have already claimed thousands of innocent souls on Earth.
Motaro: And I will claim billions.
Sheeva: By now you'd be behind bars on display in a zoo.
Motaro: If those bars could keep me away from you, Sheeva, I would welcome them!
Shao Kahn: Silence! What is your report?
Rain: Two of earth's best warriors have already been taken. Kabal and Stryker.
Shao Kahn: Tell me, did you make them beg for the lives before you destroyed them?
Rain: But, Master, I thought if I let them live...
Shao Kahn: I have no use for excuses! Rain, this will never happen again.
Rain: It will never happen again.
[grabbed Kitana after teleportation towards Kitana]
[Scorpion disappeared with Kitana]
Rayden: Years ago, my father had agreed that his heir to the family throne must be strong enough to kill his own brother in battle if necessary. I beat my brother, but I could not kill him. Only one thing is certain; Khan must die.
Liu Kang: This time, you're going to kill him.
Rayden: I could not then, I cannot now.
Liu Kang: So, what do we do?
Rayden: You will do your best! It is all that can be expected. I will pray for you all.
Shao Kahn: The Earth was created in six days; so too shall it be destroyed; and on the seventh day, mankind will rest... in peace!
[Liu Kang has pinned Jade]
Liu Kang: First you betray me, and now you laugh?
Nightwolf: Cool, huh? It's my Animality.
[watching Liu Kang and Kitana escape]
Sheeva: The date's over.
[after ripping off Jax's cybernetic arm]
Motaro: Without your weapons, you are no match for Motaro.
[while fighting Jax, Motaro rips off one of his cybernetic arms]
Motaro: Without your weapons, you are *no* match for Motaro!
Rayden: [noticing Jax's enhancements] What's the deal with your arms?
Jax: I've known you one minute and you dissin' me already?
Rayden: I mean no disrespect. You have real skills. Those arms aren't your strength, they're your weakness.
Jax: Show's what you know, these things right here, state of the art.
Rayden: Faith in yourself is all you need,
[to the others]
Rayden: and I say that to all of you.
Lord Rayden: [Coming into the Temple of the Elder Gods] I have come to the Eternal Palace. Because your sacred rules have been broken. Shao Kahn has invaded the Earth.
[Then, the dark place turns into the temple]
Elder God of Wind: As always Lord Rayden, you are granted 3 questions.
Lord Rayden: This one must be, why was this treachery ever allowed?
Elder Water God: We do not control the destiny of men.
Elder Fire God: Everybody possesses the ability to change their fate.
Lord Rayden: So, you will stand by and watch the ruination of Earth?
Elder God of Wind: You are correct, believing Princess Kitana is the key to closing Kahn's portals
Lord Rayden: But, if I reunited her with Sindel, how can I be sure that the portals will stay closed until the next tournament?
Elder Water God: Only if Shao Kahn is destroyed should the future be safe.
Elder God of Wind: By living amongst the humans, do you really care for them?
Lord Rayden: More than I can remember.
Elder Water God: Do you love them so much to sacrifice your immortality?
[Rayden thinks about his deicsion]
Shao Kahn: [after Killing off Rain] It's true, this will never happen again. It's also true I need a new general. Either die on duty or by my hand, the choice is yours.
Motaro: Centaurs are known for their hunting prowess. As your general, i will personally hunt down every human soul and spare no one.
Sheeva: Motaro can't be trusted, being the personal protector of queen Sindel, your orders are mine to follow.
Ermac: While they waste their energy with their snivelings I would gather hundreds of thousands of souls, for you.
Shao Kahn: No. You all are far too impetuous for such important work.
[Points to Sindel]
Shao Kahn: You, are my new general, Queen Sindel. Unless someone has a different point of view.
Sonya Blade: Wait a minute; that tattoo, I've seen it before; on a robot and a woman. They both tried to kill me.
Sonya Blade: Whenever you're ready, Rayden.
Shao Kahn: You will *fail*!
Shao Kahn: You will never win!
Jax: Let's see what I'm made of.
Shao Kahn: Impressive, but not for long!
Jax: [to Rayden] Man, you got one dysfunctional family, you know that?
Scorpion: Get over here!
Shao Kahn: It is also true I need a new general. You can die in duty or buy my hand, the choice is yours.
Johnny Cage: This is not good!
Nightwolf: Feel your Animality!
Jade: Of all the horrors darkness holds; to die alone, that is my worst fear.
[Sonya performs her flame kiss fatality on Cyrax, destroying him instantly]
Jax: Man, you barbecued his ass!
Jade: It is not my fault. I did everything you ordered.
Shao Kahn: It was your job to lure them to an ambush. If they have escaped, then you failed me!
Jade: We could never have stopped them alone.
Sindel: Listen to her. She speaks the truth. We would have died trying.
Shao Kahn: You... you're already dead.
[Sonya is double-teamed by Ermac and Noob Saibot]
Sonya Blade: Jax! Help!
[watching Liu Kang transform into a dragon]
Jax: Ah, now I done seen everything.
Shao Kahn: [Shao-Kahn has Jonny Cage in a headlock] Surrender now, Raiden, or this one dies!
Jade: How can you hope to defeat Shao Kahn when I alone am too much for you!
