Tanya is a playable character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series and debuted in Mortal Kombat 4 (1997), the first 3D game of the series. She returned 7 years later as an unlockable character in Mortal Kombat: Deception (2004) and Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (2006).

In March 2015 she was confirmed to be a DLC character in Mortal Kombat X (2015) where Tanya is also involved in the story of the game.

Tanya is like Jade, Kitana, Rain and Sindel from Edenia and often playing an antagonistic role and betrays the other Mortal Kombat characters that believed her before. Her visual design was changed drastically in Mortal Kombat X.
