Kung Lao (如果老挝) is a Shaolin Monk and playable character from Mortal Kombat series. He first appeared in Mortal Kombt II.
Kung Lao's ancestor was defeated by the hands of Goro 500 years ago in the pivotal match that saw Shang Tsung attain control of the Mortal Kombat tournament. To him this contest is about more than Earthrealm's freedom. His life's goal has been to slay Goro and win the tournament, thus restoring his family's honor. After being defeated by Liu Kang in a qualifying bout, he disguised himself as one of Shang Tsung's guards to gain admittance. Kung Lao believes he is ready for the challenge. The time to avenge his ancestor is at hand.
