Shinnok is a playable character from the Mortal Kombat games by Midway Games Chicago and Netherrealm Studios (Since MK9).

He appeared the first time in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub Zero (1997) in which Shinnok was the main antagonist and a boss.

Shinnok was the first time playable in Mortal Kombat 4 in 1997 and returned in Mortal Kombat Deadly Armageddon (2006) where he is probably leading the forces of evil.

He was only shown in a few cameo’s and at the end of Mortal Kombat 9 (2011) while Shinnok is again the main antagonist in Mortal Kombat X (2015). Like in MK MSZ he will transform into a demonic form, which is called Corrupted Shinnok after he absorbs Earthrealms Jinsei.
