Hero Overview

I train my most promising students here at my home, away from prying eyes, to assure that my secrets are only known to those I trust.

Bo' Rai Cho is an Outworldian martial arts teacher and a hero from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series.

He was voiced by Herman Sanchez (original timeline) and Steve Blum (alternate timeline).


Bo' Rai Cho was a teacher of many great warriors, such as Liu Kang and Shujinko. Despite living in Earthrealm, he was actually from Outworld and though he had the skills to participate in a Mortal Kombat tournament, Bo' Rai Cho couldn't since his victory would allow Shao Kahn to take the Earthrealm. After Liu Kang was killed by the Deadly Alliance, Kung Lao went to Bo' Rai Cho for training on how to defeat Shang Tsung.

He then went to Outworld while the Earthrealm warriors prepared to fight the Deadly Alliances and spied on the two sorcerers, rescuing another Outworldian fighter, Li Mei. Afterwards, during the rise of Dragon King, Bo' Rai Cho regrouped with Raiden and the other Earthrealm warriors to return to Earth.

In his ending in Armageddon, Bo' Rai Cho's defeat of Blaze teleported him before the Elder Gods, who then appointed him the protector god of Outworld.


Bo's Rai Cho is always jovial, cheerful and positive who has trained the best and greatests fighters in the world. Although Bo' Rai Cho is a very skilled martial artist a lot of people underestimate him since he is drunk, lazy and a slob. He is a perfect example of never judge a book by it's cover.

He is loud, loyal, selfless, honorable and enjoys having a good time. Although he is Outworlder unlike most of the other people from Outworld Bo Rai Cho does fear, hate, dislike or distrust Eathrealm. He loves his home but he couldn't stand by or aid Outworld as it's armies invade Earth Bo Rai Cho knew it was wrong. Eventually over time after many years on Earth Bo Rai Cho loved his new home world more than his original home. While most people are driven by fame, greed, money, power, revenge or vengeance as their motivation to fight this is not the case for Bo Rai Cho.

Bo Rai Cho fights to protect Earthrealm because he knows it's right he can't be bought, bragged or bribed. Despite his laziness and his lack of good hygiene Bo' Rai Cho is humble and cares for the simple things in life. An example of of him enjoying simple things is his reason for siding with earth since their wine was better than Outworlds wine. Bo's Rai Cho doesn't care for money, power or fame. He is also a very forgiving man he doesn't let a of things to upset. Bo's Rai Cho is a laid back and humble man his humbleness is shown in a few of game ends when the Elder Gods offer him a chance to become a god Bo Rai Cho denys the offer turning it down.

With him being humble and with no desire for power when Bo Rai Cho defeats Blaze just wanted to bring back his student Liu Kang he didn't care about using, taking or keeping Blaze's powers unlike most of the other fighters. He is a respectable man who puts others before himself which is one of the reasons why he decided to help defend Earthrealm. Bo Rai Cho cared for safety earth and it's people more than he care about being seen as a traitor, outcast or criminal in the eyes of his home world.

He doesn't care how other people think of him and doesn't care what other people say about him. He can usually find the good in almost anything or any situation. Even though he is lazy, laidback and care free Bo Rai Cho doesn't joke around or act like a clown which is what Johnny Cage acts like. Bo Rai Cho knows how serious fighting threats and dangers can be.
