This is not a game identification game, but instead a person identification.

In Mortal Kombat 3 (or MK2, I don't remember right) after fighting lots of bosses, I remember you fight with this guy. He was extremely powerful and fast, and (I think) I never beat him.

Here is a picture I found searching for this mysterious shadowy figure:

The Black Guy


  • Platform: Played in a PlayStation 1;
  • Genre: Fighting game;
  • Year: Mortal Kombat (if this guy its from MK3, the year is 1995, if this guy be from MK2, the year is 1993) is a little old, but I played last year.
  • Perspective: Its a 2D game;

So who is this shadowy figure? What his name, what is the plot around him, and what games he appeared?

    I feel like "shadowy figure" might be a better descriptor here... – Pyritie Sep 27 '17 at 15:40

    I feel like there's room for a Lion King meme here too... – Ben Sep 27 '17 at 22:57

This character appears to be Noob Saibot

enter image description here

Noob Saibot, once known as Bi-Han (璧漢 or 避寒)1 and the original Sub-Zero, was a Lin Kuei assassin turned wraith from the Mortal Kombat fighting games series. He is one of the few original characters, debuting in the original Mortal Kombat arcade game as Sub-Zero, older brother of the current, younger Sub-Zero. He first appeared as Noob Saibot as a secret character in Mortal Kombat II, first becoming playable in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, and was once again a secret character in Mortal Kombat 4. In one form or another, Noob Saibot has appeared in every generation of Mortal Kombat games as a playable character.

    Also fun fact too Noob Saibot is that named after two of the founding members of the Mortal Kombat team Ed Boon and John Tobias. – Ramirez Sep 27 '17 at 15:54
