Kano is the treacherous, arrogant, and crude leader of the Black Dragon Clan, and an antagonist from the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games. He holds a sick infatuation with Sonya Blade (much to her disgust). He is also a supporting antagonist in the 1st Mortal Kombat game, a minor antagonist in Mortal Kombat II, a major antagonist in 3-Armageddon, an anti-villain in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, one of the supporting antagonists (along with Noob Saibot and Mileena) in Mortal Kombat 9, and a major antagonist in Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat 11.
Powers and Abilities
Kano is a deadly adversary due to his resourcefulness, his master manipulation & opportunistic tactics. He engages in fights when the odd are in his favor. He tends to use other members of his team (Tasia, Jarek, Tremor, No Face & BD Thugs/Mercenaries) to wear down his opposition, so he can have the advantage in a fight. Whether he is wearing you down for the advantage or forced to fight right away, Kano is an extremely adept hand-to-hand fighter and also displays great prowess with knives, particularly his signature weapon: a pair of butterfly knives. Kano has proven to be a challenge for even more skilled fighter.
In addition to his skills, Kano has had several cybernetic upgrades throughout his body, particularly his Cybernetic Eye, which he can omit a laser beam from. Another of Kano's special moves is his ability to tuck into a cannonball and propel himself toward his opponents. Kano is also shown to be incredibly strong and powerful, as he can punch through a person body. He is even capable to punching through metal, ripping out vital organs, ripping off someone's head, and even rip out an entire skeleton out of his opponent with his bare hands.
