5 Interesting Facts about Sub Zero, the Ice Elemental Fighter in Mortal Kombat Game
As a character who always appears throughout the Mortal Kombat series, Sub-Zero is one of the characters that is quite popular among fans of the Mortal Kombat game. Likewise with his rivalry with Scorpion which is very legendary for the franchise.

What are some interesting facts about a Sub-Zero? On this occasion, the admin will tell you what interesting facts about these characters are. Curious? Let's start the discussion right now.

1. Sub-Zero was originally two different people

The first interesting fact and probably many people already know, the name Sub-Zero is not a real name. But an alias that throughout its history, there have been two people who have used the Sub-Zero identity.

He is Bi Han who is also the first Sub-Zero. In the game's timeline, Bi Han was killed by Scorpion in the first tournament. Furthermore, the character behind Sub-Zero's identity is Kuai Liang, who is the younger brother of Bi Han the previous Sub-Zero.

2. His Rivalry With The Legendary Scorpion

If we discuss Sub-Zero, of course, it will not be complete if we don't also mention the name Scorpion. Since the first game series, these two characters have been at war. Sub-Zero was the one who had massacred the Shirai Ryu clan, and Scorpion was one of the victims of Sub-Zero Bi Han's atrocities.

However, this feud officially ended in the Mortal Kombat X series. When Kuai Liang, who was Sub-Zero at the time, invited Scorpion (who had turned into Hanzo back) to talk. On that occasion, Sub-Zero realized Scorpion that all along, their clan had been pitted against each other by Quan Chi to hate each other.

3. Actually Not From Earthrealm

Throughout the Mortal Kombat series (which is set in a Mortal Kombat tournament), Raiden always brings Sub-Zero as his main fighter with Liu Kang and others. But actually, there is one fact that probably not many people know, namely that the two Sub-Zeros (Bi Han and Kuai Liang) are not from Earthrealm.

As it turned out, they were both from the Cyromancer race. Namely a race from the world of Edenia that is able to manipulate airborne particles and humidity, which turns them into ice. The Cyromancer race itself was almost wiped out when Shao Kahn took control of Edenia. So they both became one of the Cyromancers who managed to survive.

4. The wound in his left eye is the hallmark of Sub-Zero Kuai Liang

As we know, Sub-Zero is an alias that is not only used by one person. Also the Sub-Zero that comes after the first Mortal Kombat is a different Sub-Zero. Well, Midway Games, which at that time still held the Mortal Kombat license, added something in this second Sub-Zero to make it look different from the previous Sub-Zero.

With a wound in his right eye, which makes this second Sub-Zero (Kuai Liang) different from the first Sub-Zero. In addition, in the third series, Ed Boon and John Tobias also designed Sub-Zero without a mask.

5. Had Become A Cyborg And Quan Chi's Subordinate In The New Timeline

The Lin Kuei clan had great ambitions to create an army of cyborg soldiers without any feelings. Kuai Liang and his friend (Smoke) are the ones who reject the plan and defect from the clan. So that both of them became fugitives of the Lin Kuei clan. In the old timeline, Smoke was caught and turned him into a Cyborg. Which is then programmed to hunt down Sub-Zero.

But in the new timeline, the situation is reversed. Kuai Liang who was actually caught and had become a Cyborg. But because he has a strong conscience, he managed to take back his body. Before finally being killed by Sindel and had time to become a Quan Chi Revenant troop in the early days of Mortal Kombat X.
