Jade did not take part of anything during the Deadly Alliance by the time she made her choice she had arrived too late the heroes were killed by the dragon king Onaga along with her friend Kitana. Jade hid out of sight when she noticed Onaga coming; Jade knew she couldn't face him yet because she is an assassin, she works best unseen so she waited until the time of Mortal Kombat Deception to help the good guys and defeat Onaga.

Although she is usually a heroine in the Mortal Kombat series in Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks she is a villain here. Jade was an unwilling baddie brainwashed by a spell used on her to make her evil.

She, Mileena and Kitana worked together but when Liu Kang tried to help free Kitana from the spell both Jade and Mileena fought against him. Liu Kang, Jade and Mileena battled each other while Kitana was trapped in a forcefield during the fight Liu Kang used the same traps on Kitana's best friend and her half-sister to defeat them. He trapped them in cages and used the fire and spike traps to hurt them when the fight was almost over Liu Kang knocked Mileena out and stabbed Jade in the eyes with two daggers.

After Kitana was rescued and back to normal Kung Lao noticed that Mileena was still alive and only unconscious unlike Jade. Kitana noticed that her longtime friend was dead and was sad but also angry at Liu Kang. When Mileena regained consciousness she noticed Jade was dead she told them Shao Kahn's plan and how they brainwashed Jade. Kitana still feeling upset about Jade's death was now angry with her stepfather instead.

Kitana told Jade's corpse that she doesn't blame her childhood friend she blames her father, Kitana then mentioned that Reptile must be with Mileena. Kitana's half-twin sister then escaped the heroes they went after her; Mileena, took the daggers from Jade's eyes and left her body in the spot where she died.

Jade was sent by Shao Kahn to seduce Liu Kang and make him forget all about Kitana and then kill him. When that plan fails she tries to kill him in a fight with her gaining the edge but Liu Kang prevails, after failing to do so she lies saying that it was just another test. Jade lies again telling him that she is an ally Liu Kang believes and unknowingly decides to follow her to the Temple of the Elder Gods where the emperor Outworld has ambush waiting. Along the way Jade and Liu Kang meet up with the Earthrealm warriors; Liu, introduces Jade to them but Kitana and Sonya don't trust her.

After freeing Kitana and capturing Sindel the heroes try to free the Edenian queen from Shao Khan's control inside the Elder Gods Temple. The Plan fails as Kitana's mother is mocking them, than a smiling Jade eventually reveals that she had been working for Shao Kahn the whole time. Liu Kang tells Jade that she will die for lying to them, the female assassin gets scared after hearing this and watches in fear as the ambush fails. Sindel uses her powers to escape and Jade being an assassin sneaks out of the temple with no one noticing until after she had already left.

Later, Shao Kahn is upset with Jade because of her incompetent failure, the female assassin told him that she followed all his plans and carried out every order. Though she did succeed in earning the heroes trust and luring them into a trap she failed to kill them which was something Shao Kahn wouldn't forgive her for. Jade tells him that she and Sindel couldn't defeat the heroes even though Jade told the truth Shao Kahn would rather have them die trying to fight the Earthrealm heroes rather runaway. Sindel comes to Jade's defense but the emperor stops her, he turns back around to Jade and decides to have her killed as punishment for her failure, feeding her to a monster hidden in the wall.
