What if Hanzo Hasashi(Scorpion) was a Splinterlands Monster?

Background Story


Hanzo Hasashi, popularly known as Scorpion from the Mortal Kombat franchise grew into prominence in the game because he became a fan favourite, and phased out the interest in Lui Kang.

According to the mortal Kombat canon in Mortal Kombat: Scorpion's revenge, Hanzo or Scorpion as he's popularly called was the leader of the Shirai Ryu group somewhere in the Earth Realm. He was a really good Martial Artist, but also a loving father and husband. He was deceived by the Quanchi into believing that Sub Zero of the Lin Quei carried out the massacre of his kin. Fuelled by rage, he lashed out on the Lin Quei soldiers he met there and killed many of them, only to be defeated by Sub Zero(Who was actually just the shape-shifting Quanchi).

After Scorpions death, he descended in the underworld, where he met Quanchi after defeating numerous demons in the way. This time, Quanchi was wearing his actual face and continued the deception by offering the enraged Ninja an "Olive Branch" of sorts. It seemed like a "fair trade"; do my bidding and I'll give you the opportunity to carry out revenge on the Lin Quei.

It is a tragic story that ends with him killing Sub Zero and then realising he had been fooled all along. Scorpion ends up being remorseful for his actions against the innocent Sub Zero and then vows to protect Sub Zero's Brother and family to atone for his sins. However, this rage-filled zombie ass-kicker still has a score to settle with Quanchi and seeks to exert vengeance, while roaming the World and doing as many good deeds as he can.

Oh, and did I mention his deceased son's name is Satoshi? Scorpion might even be the Grandfather of Bitcoin.


Scorpion is a skilled fighter capable of using different forms of martial arts. He's very capable in hand to hand combat, and can go up against people like Liu Kang, Rayden and thousands of demons.
When he's not breaking skulls with his hands, he likes to use a Katana for closed range battles. He normally prefers slicing and dicing his opponents in battle.

He's equally dangerous in mid-range situations because first of all, he has those harpoons he uses to impale or sometimes to pull his opponent close to him for some slicing and dicing. That's where the popular phrase "GET OVER HERE!!!" comes from.

Not very pretty

Owing to his training as a Shirai Ryu, he's also basically a ninja, so he's very nimble and can employ stealth when situations require. He usually combines this training with his ability to teleport in between short distances to achieve his dastardly bidding.

Fitting into the game

This is totally hypothetical of course but it is very common to have game combinations like this. For example, in Mortal Kombat X, Kratos(God of War) and Darth Vader(From Star wars) were all characters. I have also played Street Fighter vs Tekken where characters from both franchises met, and I'm sure there are others out there.

Mortal Kombat has a huge fanbase, so throwing a popular character like this would be really awesome for Splinterlands. Perhaps the writers of Splinterlore could somehow squeeze in The Lord of Darkness into Scorpion's lore, considering he's spent a lot of time in the Nether Realm, which is Mortal Kombat's version of the underworld.

Fitting into Death Splinter

Considering he's from the underworld and how badass he is, he would naturally be a legendary monster of the death splinter persuasion. His ability in close combat means he would pack a mean punch in close range battles, but should also have reach ability since he does damage from a little bit far away from the frontline.

Speed should also not be an issue for this guy, considering he's a ninja, so I say we put him at around 5 or 6 speed when he's maxed out. Also, owing to the fact that he's pretty much a zombie, he doesn't die easily and heals fast, so he deserves to have the self healing ability. Since he teleports over short distances, adding the dodge ability seems right and because he gets more aggressive when angered, he should have that rage ability when maxed out.


Magic has proven to be his weakness in countless situations. His current predicament was because he didn't have a discerning eye to see through the trick. Depending on the Canon you've seen, you'd find that he had actually been killed a couple of times by Sub Zero, but always came back, since he's basically dead

Scorpion Stats

This is all hypothetical of course, and will ideally be tweaked to accommodate any rule that Splinterlands monsters.

Basic Traits:

  • Melee: 4-6(level 1-4)
  • Speed: 4-6(Level 1-4)
  • Health: 5-7(level 1-4)
  • Mana Cost: 8

My Photo editing skills suck but here's what I could create


Special Abilities

  • Reach (level 1-4)
  • Dodge (level 1-4)
  • Self-healing: Activates in Level 2
  • Enrage: Activates in Level 2
  • Blind: Activates in level 3

Bros sweet post and idea...in all my time on Mortal Kombat, I didn't even know the story of either of the fighters to this extent. I just play mehn....do you still play the game like that? It seems so.

And yeah it will be nice seeing such characters incorporated in the game,if there wouldn't be any copyright matters to deal with, sweet idea. Or better still the "get over here" ability will be nice on one of the monsters.

I haven't played the game in a long time actually. I just follow the in-game stories from people that upload them on youtube and also watch the animations. I reviewed one of them sef.
Check out Mortal Kombat: Scorpion's revenge. Very dope

Doing that now

Broooo I just watched Liu Kang VS Goro - Mortal Kombat legends...Scorpion na bastaaard!

Yes, thats the one. Scorpion remove he head.

This would be one a massive damage dealer, especially when the Rage ability gets triggered. Really cool idea!

Thanks for sharing! - @mango-juice

Hi5 man! I like the character Scorpion from Mortal Kombat very match as well! last I have played is Mortal Combat X where they have made the Scorpion more fierce. I am sure you have enjoyed those new Fatality moves like me.

A fantastic collaboration between Scorpion and Splinterlands friend. Surely, he deserves the Death Splinter taking in count his relation with the underworld. But what is your next character? Sub-zero? ;)

Keep writing awesome contents. God bless 🙂

Hmm, Sub Zero? Interesting. I think I'll do that. Thanks for the idea

Just do the entire Lin Kuei from Mortal Kombat.

So that'll be:
Cyrax, Sector, Smoke, Sub Zero? Sub Zero fits into Water Splinter easily, and Liu Kang fits into dragon. I was thinking of incorporating some anime characters



You are telling me you don't know who Aqua-sama is?


You're such a nerd.

You're here. 😁😁

Yup. I can't let you have all the fun.

Man I should buy that game! haven't been able to get it since I came back to Iran. ;/

Yeah. Funny thing is that I haven't even played it in a long time. I just follow their stories and animated series to get my info. The last mortal Kombat I played was Mortal Kombat X and that was for just a short time

The 11 looks pretty dope!

Yeah heard nice things. Seen some of the recorded game plays too. Very tactical

Yeah! Very graphic I should say! :D

Which console do you have?

I have a ps4 man.

Nice. You should get it then.
