|~ Daegon reveals to his brother Taven that he murdered Argus and Delia (due to Shinnok's manipulation).|
Daegon is one of the two sons of the Edenian god Argus and the Edenian mortal sorceress Delia, and a supporting antagonist in the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games. He serves as the main antagonist of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, a cameo character in Mortal Kombat (2011), and a minor yet crucial antagonist in the Mortal Kombat X comic series.
Mortal Kombat Armageddon
Daegon makes his first appearance in the Red Dragon Caverns where Taven fights his Red Dragons and is asked what he is doing in the caves. Daegon explains to Taven that he formed the Red Dragon Clan many ages ago and that the caves were his stronghold. Mavado then appears and tells his master that the firespawn Blaze had been found. Daegon is most excited over the news and leaves for his chamber, but not before ordering Mavado to kill his older brother.
Mavado failed the task and Taven chased Daegon down to the Netherrealm where Daegon was hiding in Shinnok's spire. After Shinnok convinced Taven that his brother had fled to Earthrealm and sent him there, Daegon came out of hiding. Shinnok expressed his disappointment in Daegon, claiming his older bro defeated his apparitions more quickly than Daegon did. "Perhaps I am aiding the Rome brother" said Shinnok as he slapped Daegon down. On the bright side, Shinnok has told other villains of the grand prize of defeating Blaze, hastening their anticipation, but had planned for Daegon to claim the prize and defeat Blaze.
Daegon was then sent to Edenia where Quan Chi mentioned him as one of "their [villains'] allies".
Daegon then dropped by in the Netherrealm once again in Scorpion's lair where the Shirai Ryu leader was just defeated by Taven. Daegon said he had hoped Scorpion would've had killed Taven and spare him the efforts, but then Blaze appeared and stopped the two brothers from killing each other, claiming there was disturbance amongst the realms and that they were not at the Edenian crater they were suppose to be.
Blaze teleported the two brothers before the crater but Taven still proved to be much more for Daegon, defeating him and leaving him on the ground.
Daegon later got up and joined his fellow villains in the Battle of Armageddon, but died along with most of the villains.
Mortal Kombat 2011

Daegon agrees to help the former Sohkan prince regain his arms, title, his power rule and everything he had lost. With the Dragon King Onaga's ability to heal and regrow limbs Goro manages to get his arms back after the might Shokan reveals Kenshi to Daegon. The two form an alliance for unknown future events as the comic book series ends with a cliffhanger. While Daegon was wounded.
Mortal Kombat X (game)
A flashback of Daegon is shown in Kenshi's arcade ending as he is mentioned by his brother Taven in Mortal Kombat X. After freeing Taven with his help Kenshi and Takeda learn that Daegon was responsible for Suchin's death.

While Suchin's husband and son get ready to face Daegon, the leader of the Red Dragon Clan also prepares for his plan that he made years ago in Mortal Kombat Comics when he aided Goro.
Mortal Kombat 11
Although Daegon and his brother Taven don't appear in the game they are mentioned by Cetrion she says that it's up to the two brothers to balance out good and evil and no eelse's job. While Daegon worships and serves the Dragon King Onaga like the rest of the Red Dragon his master is mentioned a few times by other fighters they know that Onaga is going to eventually return . Before the events in Mortal Kombat 11 Daegon killed Kenshi Takahashi's wife which was mentioned in the Mortal Kombat X comics and the Mortal Kombat game. Kenshi wanted revenge on Daegon and the Red Dragon Clan for the death of his wife but he also wanted revenge on Shang Tsung for taking his eyes. Since Kenshi's body can be found on Shang Tsung's Island in the DLC the Krypt he wasn't successful in getting justice for his wife's murder or for Shang Tsung blinding him. Before Mortal Kombat 11 Goro lost his arms in battle against Kotal Kahn so he went to the Red Dragon and Daegon for help he wanted Onaga's abilities to regrow limbs and was successful because when Goro's body is found on Shang Tsung's Island he has all of his arms.
The battle that Kotal Kahn had with Goro in the comics is mentioned in the Mortal Kombat 11 game. Since that is confirmed that means the deal that Goro made with Daegon, the Red Dragon and Onaga also happened as well.
