~ Jade's Battle Cry in Mortal Kombat (2011)

Jade is one of the many heroines in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. She first appeared as a secret, unplayable character in Mortal Kombat II, and first became playable in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.


Jade's confident, self-assured and sassy personality was first thoroughly portrayed in her Girls Gone wired campaign video she made. Always known for her loyalty to Kitana, she has proven herself to be dependable, sincere and devoted friend to the princess. She is sarcastic, patronizing and cocky towards her opponents, and incredibly ruthless towards those who she considers a personal enemy.

Jade knows how beautiful she is and like to show it off by doing a pole dance with her staff after she wins a fight. She is not ashamed of her looks this is revealed in her Girls Gone Wired video were she talks about her measurements (36, 24, 36) and reveals that she is a Scorpio. A Scorpio is a person who has self-control, they are passionate, determined, loving, strong, brave, honest, caring, easy to please, strong willed, independent, loyal, devoted, secretive and suspicious of strangers, they don't like drama, being lied to, conflict or like being provoked, they never forget a favor or an insult. They still care for the people colse to them even when those people upset them. A Scorpio smiles on the outside but hides their pain on the inside but even though they hide the pain and never forget it they quickly recover from it and dust it off.

They may not trust people they don't know but when a Scorpio gets to know the person better or that knows the Scorpio better they become less secretive even though they can be mysterious and have an unbreakable bond it is difficult for them to trust a suspicious, secretive, shifty and shady person. They have sense if someone can be trusted or if they can't a Scorpio not only senses it but wants their friends to show as much kindness, devotion, determination, loyalty, love, passion, strength, honesty and caring as the Scorpio does. While a Scorpio is loyal to the end but not blindly loyal they know when they need time away from their friends and people Scorpio's prefer to be alone depending on what they go through determines on how long they will separate themselves from others but that doesn't mean that the Scorpio ever gives up on the ones they care about.

A Scorpio can sense the darkness, negative energy, anger, the monster and rage locked away inside a heart. A Scorpio not only senses it but finds away to bring it out of that person and into the light. They also turn the bad negative dark situation into a good nice positive situation.

In Mortal Kombat Armageddon unlike many of the other characters Jade didn't care about the god like powers of Blaze that was bestowed on the person who beat him. Jade never battled Blaze and never used his powers she was celebrated as a hero for her choice.

Her loyalty for Kitana is so strong that in Mortal Kombat X when her best friend has fallen and become a revenant Jade reaches out to Kitana as a spirit trying to help the princess. She is loyal to her best friend and was loyal to Shao Kahn however she is not blindly loyal she stopped falling Shao Kahn when Jade realized he was wrong. Jade talks to Baraka about his loyalty blinding him unlike Baraka Jade notices and doesn't let her loyalty blind her to what is right and wrong.

Because of Jade's skills as a fighter and her good personality she teleports into kombats during some matches in Mortal Kombat II giving clues to fighters. Clues that they don't notice but she does. The clues help the kombatants so they can reach Jade who wants them to come to her. More about Jade's zodiac sign the Scorpio they are known to be mysterious, private, observant, ambitious, focused and confident but not overly confident. They are also sarcastic, sassy and are self-assured towards those who are an enemy.

Jade has romantic feelings with her lover and the current Emperor of Outworld, Kotal Kahn. They were separate after Shao Kahn betrayed his general but kept him alive in Shang Tsung's experiment until he was freed after Shao Kahn's death.

Powers and Abilities

When she was first introduced in MKII, Jade was the only secret character to possess an outright special ability, such as an absolute immunity to projectile attacks. Any projectiles thrown at her would fly harmlessly pass her. Aside from that, her style of combat was identical to that of Kitana's, wielding a pair of copper fans during game play.


Jade is a beautiful woman who has dark brown skin and black hair. During earlier Mortal Kombats she would wear similar clothes like Kitana the only exception is her green color. During Mortal Kombat 9, Jade has more different features but still keeping green as her color. Her original costume consists of a green mask with green hand guards that reaches just under her elbows with a golden arm bracelet on her right arm. She has golden chains on both her thighs to keep her green cloth stable around the waist, the top of the green cloth is divided by black strings similar to Kitana but looser revealing ample cleavage, her cloth is wrapped around her back she wears black knee high boots with emeralds embedded in them.

In her alternate costume she removes her mask and now her hair is tied in multiple knots with her hair not framing over her right eye anymore, she now consist of a different bra which is connected by a gold chain around her neck. Her midriff is more exposed revealing abs and more muscle with another chain around the waist keeping the cloth in front stable, her boots are mostly green now with golden indents instead of emeralds.

~ Jade kindly trying to stop Kitana from getting into more trouble
I had arrived to late. Kitana and her allies from Earthrealm had been slain in the epic battle against the Deadly Alliance. At least that had killed many Tarkata before they died. As I knelt beside her, a menacing dragon-like creature strode across the bridge to the palace. I leapt out of sight and watched as he resurrected the dead and ordered them to regroup near the Living Forest. I followed them in secret.
