Death Dealer is the secondary antagonist of the 2021 Marvel Cinematic Universe film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

He is a warrior and high-ranking member of the Ten Rings, and a former mentor of Shang-Chi. He works for the Mandarin, and is tasked by his master to track down Shang-Chi and Xu Xialing, resulting in him fighting his former apprentice. Death Dealer accompanied his master in traveling to Ta Lo in his attempt to find his late wife, as he believed she was imprisoned by a seal. The Mandarin unknowingly released the Soul Eaters, who removed the soul from Death Dealer's body to feed their leader - the Dweller-In-Darkness.

He was portrayed by Andy Le.

History

Background

Not much is known about the Death Dealer's past, but he would become a high-ranking member of the Ten Rings, an organization under the leadership of the Xu Wenwu. When Wenwu reclaimed leadership of the Ten Rings after the death of his wife Ying Li, Death Dealer was tasked with training warriors in martial arts. He would become the master of Wenwu's son, Shang-Chi, who decided to follow in his father's quest to get revenge on the Iron Gang for causing Ying Li's demise. Death Dealer would put Shang-Chi through vigorous training, often having the child beaten by himself or his men when he didn't live up to his expectations. He eventually succeeded in training Shang-Chi to become an assassin, as the child would kill the Iron Gang leader, but would run away from the Ten Rings due to his guilt.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

In 2024, Death Dealer and members of the Ten Rings were tasked by Wenwu to find his daughter, Xu Xialing, as she was in possession of the Eye of the Dragon. Wenwu's goal was to travel to the dimension Ta Lo to break his late wife out a sealed gate, as he believed she was imprisoned there. The group tracked down Xialing and Shang-Chi at the Golden Daggers Club in Macau, and battled his former apprentice after obtaining the dragon pendent. He was defeated by Shang-Chi, but was saved from death by Wenwu, who arrived to speak to his son on taking his place as the new ruler of the Ten Rings.

Afterward, Death Dealer accompanied Wenwu in traveling to Ta Lo to break open the seal, and also battled Ying Li's sister, Ying Nan during the assault on a village. As the Mandarin destroyed the seal, he unknowingly released a hostile race called the Soul Eaters alongside their leader, the Dweller-In-Darkness. Death Dealer was killed by Soul Eaters, as they removed his soul from his body to feed to the Dweller. The Soul Eaters and the Dweller were defeated by Shang-Chi and Wenwu, with the latter sacrificing himself so his son could stop the hostile race.

Trivia

  • Death Dealer's actor, Andy Le, performed all of his stunts in the film.
