Scorpion is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat video game series. In the first two video games of the series, he was portrayed by Daniel Pesina. In the final iterations which used digitized sprites, he was portrayed by John Turk. In all the games and films, his iconic yell when he uses his Spear Throw ("Get Over Here!" and "Come Here!") has been voiced by series co-creator Ed Boon.
Hanzo Hasashi was formerly a human ninja; Scorpion is a hellspawned revenant, inexorably seeking vengeance against those responsible for the destruction of his clan and the death of his family. Although essentially neutral in allegiance, Scorpion will ally with anyone who can assist his plans of revenge. He was once manipulated by Quan Chi, who he promised him his life in exchange for his impressive combat abilities in order to defeat Sub-Zero. Since Scorpion is a spectre, sorcery and supernatural anomalies have proven effective against him in battle, though none have ever succeeded in destroying him in an absolute sense.
"Scorpion" was the code name of one of the Shirai Ryu's finest warriors: a ninja assassin named Hanzo Hasashi. His father, a former clansman, forbid his son from joining as he did not wish him to live an assassin's life, but his request fell on deaf ears because Hanzo wanted a comfortable life for his wife and son.
In Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, Scorpion is the boss character from the first stage fighting the elder Sub-Zero. He was enlisted by Quan Chi to find a map hidden in a Shaolin temple, a task also given to Sub-Zero. After Scorpion is killed by Sub-Zero, he acts as a boss character in the Netherrealm, trying to kill Sub-Zero once again.
