Mortal Kombat II

After Queen Sindel of Edenia kills herself in defiance of Shao Kahn, the Emperor seeks to ensure that Kitana will not defy him as well. Thus Mileena is born, spawned of Shang Tsung's black magic, intended to take the Princess' place. This was not to be, however, as the Tarkatan essence used in her creation results in a grotesque countenance. Not content to let his experiment go to waste, Mileena is trained as a personal guard and insinuated into his daughter's company as her sister.

For a short time, Kitana and Mileena worked together as assassins in Shao Kahn's service; though ostensibly her companion, Mileena's true task is to report any suspicious activity to her Emperor. During the events of the second tournament, she finds that Kitana is indeed in league with Earthrealm's warriors. Too enraged to notify Kahn, Mileena attacks her sister personally. Kitana subsequently prevails against her, killing Mileena and sending her soul to the Netherrealm.

Mortal Kombat Trilogy


Mortal Kombat Gold

"Reborn in the Netherrealm and servant to Shinnok since her rebirth, Mileena finds that a coming battle gives her a chance to both escape her fearful servitude to Shinnok and avenge her own death. Knowing Kitana will fight for Edenia, Mileena ensures an easy escape route is left as she moves into battle with Shinnok."

Mortal Kombat: Deception

Deception, Mileena's less than modest costume shows her figure.

It is not until the return of the Dragon King Onaga that Mileena is finally freed. Found by her one-time ally Baraka, he convinces her to serve the Dragon King, where she is able to exact vengeance on her sister by posing as the leader of the Princess' armies; Mileena relished her temporary victory. Though aligned with Onaga, Mileena begins to entertain the idea of using the Edenian army to her own ends. Taking advantage of the weakened status of her former master, she storms Shao Kahn's fortress, declaring herself the ruler of Outworld. For a time she had the most powerful forces in either Outworld and Edenia.

Mileena has no trouble taking control of Kitana's armies in disguise, as most assumed her dead long ago. She gives command of her armies to Bo Rai Cho, instructing him to act against Baraka's Tarkatan horde. To her surprise, he prevails, and with the most powerful army in either Outworld or Edenia now at her command, she is closer to her goal than ever. With only one issue to tie up, she seeks Baraka's presence at the Beetle's Lair, where she ambushes and kills him. Having slain the only person who knew of her deception, she is now free to pose indefinitely as Princess Kitana.

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

Her reign is short-lived, however. Having restored his former strength during the time of Armageddon, Shao Kahn now assaults his own fortress with the aid of Goro and Shang Tsung. Trying to shield herself from the Emperor's wrath, Mileena barricades herself in the throne room, and has her sorcerers cast a defensive barrier on the door. Even being magically bolstered, it is no match for Shao Kahn's brute strength, and soon Mileena is face to face with the Emperor. Still believing her to be Kitana, the remaining defenders rush to her aid, only to find themselves stabbed from behind by their "princess". Choosing fealty over death, Mileena reveals her identity to Kahn, and swears her allegiance.

Upon her capitulation, Mileena is tasked with the capture of Shujinko, whom Kahn believes will be useful in swaying Onaga to his side. Shujinko accepts an invitation from Mileena, presumably under the guise of Kitana; upon his arrival at Kahn's fortress, he is faced with the risen Emperor and his allies. Mileena captures him personally, fulfilling her duty to Kahn. But having been ruler for a time, she now chafes at the thought of servitude. Unfortunately, she realizes that while Shao Kahn lives, she has no hope of retaking the throne of Outworld. For this reason she travels to Edenia, hoping to reclaim her position there.

Like the other characters good and evil alike, in Armageddon Mileena Perishes in the final battle.

Mortal Kombat (2011)

"A fusion of Edenian flesh and Tarkatan blood, Mileena is both beauty and beast. Mileena first appears being born in the Flesh Pits."


In the revamped timeline Kitana discovers Mileena moments after she's been created. Wrapped in bandages and with her body mixed with Tarkatan strength and Edenian magic, Mileena awakens and notices Kitana. Upon seeing her "Sister" Kitana, Millena tries to reason with her, although teasingly. However, Kitana horrified and angered, expresses her disgust before attacking her. Kitana succeeds in defeating her, however, she learns the revelation through Shang Tsung that he created "Mileena" through his sorcery; Kitana is captured with Mileena taking her place by Shao Kahn's side. Later after Kitana's capture, Mileena ditches the flesh Pits and bandages, in favor of a revealing magenta outfit; Mileena is able to catch up to Jade using her teleport. Mileena dances happily, expressing delight that her "sister" is going to die for her treachery. Jade, upon besting her, tells her that "she was more of a sister to Kitana than her." Mileena is later seen during Kung Lao's death by Shao Kahn and Liu Kang's fight.

With Shao Kahn alive, Mileena bows to the one she calls father and sees this as an opportunity to wreck havoc in Earthrealms invasion; among the destruction in the City, she's noticed by Kabal and Stryker, she immediately attacks Stryker. Mileena gets knocked down, Stryker gets distracted by a roaring Dragon, realizing this is an opportunity to attack Stryker, Mileena rushes at him with a fist. Stryker is immediately saved by Raiden and electrocutes Mileena. This attack, however, only incapacitated her briefly showing her durability against electricity she recovers. A couple hours later Mileena notices Motaro's been killed by Raiden and reports it back to Shao Kahn. She and Noob notice Kabal who was spying on Sindel's power up. After a long fight, Kabal defeats Mileena and Noob with his speed helping him. After this Mileena isn't seen throughout the rest of the story, nonetheless she backs off from Earthrealm in order to recover resources while Sindel invades, Mileena supports her Emperor Shao Kahn until his death by Raiden.

Mortal Kombat X comics


Mortal Kombat X


Mortal Kombat 11

Mileena returns as a playable DLC character in Mortal Kombat 11. Before this, she also appeared in the Joker's arcade mode ending and in Kitana's friendship.


Mileena has a very beautiful and seductive appearance yet has a terrifying mouth concealed under her mask. Mileena usually wears an attire with shades of magenta-pink as her color; Her first costume consisted of a simple pink leotard suit similar to kitana's.

It was not until Mortal Kombat: Deception her clothes became more provocative and exposed, her first costume she wore a veil in which reveals her mouth underneath and she had her hair in a ponytail, her clothes were just a long black robe which covered her arms and revealed her chest and midriff.

She had a black belt around her waist and wore black boots. In her MK9 costume, which is similar to her Deception alternate, it consist of a revealing outfit just like the formers. She wears pink high heeled boots along with a pink mask. The way her costume is designed it reveals her cleavage, midriff, abs and muscle.

In Mortal Kombat X, her outfit is much less revealing now having sleek pants and her mouth is much more human like with lips.


Mileena holding her Sai's.

Unlike Kitana (the person she was cloned from), Mileena is vicious and evil. She despises Kitana and constantly seeks to kill her, feeling entitled to rule over Edenia as Princess in the her place.

She is somewhat of an opportunist, making any chance to seize whatever power comes into her hands. She is also demented, ruthless and murderous, especially whenever anyone stands in her way to get what she wants.

Although Mileena wishes to kill Kitana sometimes Mileena wants her to suffer first. Mileena wants to follow in her father's footsteps and be ruler of Outworld like Shao Kahn. She also wants everything Kitana has Mileena, wants Kitana's throne to Edenia she and wants to be as beautiful as Kitana. In her Armageddon ending Mileena doesn't kill Kitana but instead makes her sister ugly while Mileena becomes beautiful.

Mileena's goal in Armageddon is to make herself beautiful and Kitana ugly. But like many other kombatants she also wants the power to rule. Many fighters want the power of Blaze to become gods, the champion or become the best fighters. Some want the power to destroy others want to steal the powers from other fighters. While some want to wipe out evil for ever. Mileena's wish to use Blaze's power to rule is no different from most of the other kombatants and while she wants to also look like Kitana. Mileena if she gets her wish acts like Kitana to fool others into thinking she is Kitana.

Mileena is jealous of her sister she wants her sister dead so no mare what Kitana won't stop Mileenafrom taking what she wants. She wants her sister to experience want she goes through Mileena wants to know what it's like to be Kitana and she wants Kitana to know what it's like to be like her. Even though Kitana has suffered, lost her home and family at the hands of Shao Kahn Mileena believes Kitana has to experience the losses of what she has gone through. After freeing Edenia from the grip of Shao Kahn and not being given the right to rule Outworld. With heroes taking everything away from Mileena to protect, defend and save their world. Mileena wants everything taken away from Kitana just like everything was taken away from her.

Mileena also seems to enjoy teasing and toying her opponents doesn't matter if they are allies or enemies. She is a skilled fighter and enjoys the thrill of combat she enjoys the blood, bringing pain and making others suffer. Although Mileena wishes to have Kitana's beauty she likes to watch the horrified expressions on the faces of the people who see her face. Mileena likes to strike fear in her opponents and likes to think of combat as a game and as play. Most of Mileena's appearance has the good looks of an Edenian while she has the strength and the personality of a Tarkatan. She has no shame and no regrets about her actions while she enjoys being who she is she feels incomplete without her sister's beauty.

Both Mileena and Kitana have a strong rivalry neither one likes the. Kitana doesn't like Mileena because of her sick twited nature and her horrifying looks. Mileena doesn't like Kitana because of her opposite good nature she also doesn't like her because she has what her cloned sister doesn't have beauty and the power to rule a realm.

Although Mileena's outfits have become less revealing over the years she still has a seductive personality and still likes to show off some of the good looks she has. She still likes to show off some of her beauty and still likes to wear reavaling clothes. Mileena likes to seduce others with her beauty but she also likes to creep people out after they see her face.

Powers and Abilities

Mileena uses her strong knee X-ray.

Mileena possesses great combat strength, aptitude, and agility and wields a pair of sai in combat, that she can charge with energy and throw at her opponent. Mileena's teeth are also so sharp, she can easily bite into her opponent.

Throughout Mortal Kombat Mileena's strength has been shown to rival the Shokan and possibly other Outworld fighters. Mileena is almost equal to Kitana However, Mileena has lost to Kitana a few times although came close numerous times in battle.

It can be noted that Mileena is more violent and less reserved than Kitana who is more skilled and calm. despite being untrained in martial arts Mileena uses her own deadly attacks mostly brute force such as uppercuts and punches usually incorporating fierce strikes to her opponents. During Mileena's X-ray In MK9 She shows strength by putting all her power into a knee attack that breaks the opponent's jaw and teeth.

  • Mileena appeared in the 1997 film Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, the sequel to the 1995 film adaptation, portrayed by Dana Hee. She is quite easily dispatched by Sonya Blade following their fight, her neck snapped by a kick in the head. Her name was never spoken in the film, but is acknowledged in the end credits.
  • In Mortal Kombat: Deception, she wore an outfit that reveals more than any other Mortal Kombat character. She even appeared in a special edition of Playboy that used videogame characters.
  • Though at first, she was simply a palette swapped version of Kitana, her clothes became more and more provocative and revealing as the games went on. This suggests she is flaunting her body to make up for her Tarkatan features.
    • However Mileena's appearance drastically changes in Mortal Kombat X, where she looks more demonic than seductive.
  • Every time Mileena encounters Kitana, she always calls her "sister".
  • In Mortal Kombat X, her costumes are not as revealing in the other games.
  • In the Mortal Kombat (2011) Challenge Tower, she had made a teddy bear for Scorpion. Making fans believe she has feelings for Scorpion, this is yet to be confirmed.
  • She is about 5'9 and 127 lbs.
  • An interaction with Johnny Cage hints that Mileena may have a secret sexual relationship with Baraka.
