|~ Sheeva's battle cry.|
Sheeva is a proud member of the native Outworld race known as the Shokan and an antagonist from the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games. She is a supporting antagonist in Mortal Kombat 3 and Mortal Kombat (2011) and a minor antagonist in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. In the Mortal Kombat X comic books, she finally breaks away from Outworld and becomes a neutral anti-hero, something that continues in Mortal Kombat 11, in which she is a playable DLC character.
Like many other people from the Shokan, Sheeva was a warrior for Shao Kahn. Her ferocity earned her the warlord's attention and when he invaded Earhtrealm using the resurrected Queen Sindel, he appointed Sheeva her bodyguard. However the Shokan became distrustful of Kahn when Motaro, a Centaurian, the rivals of her race, was appointed the head of Kahn's extermination squads. During the invasion, Sheeva fiercely fought against anyone who tried to get near Sindel and eventually battled against Kitana and Jade, who sought to free the Edenian queen from Shao Kahn's control. Her brute strength wasn't enough to beat the two and Sheeva fled to Outworld in shame.
Upon arriving there, she found out that Shao Kahn had betrayed her people and led an attack on them. However since the Shokan could not defeat the emperors forces, Sheeva decided to simply finish off Motaro. Upon sneaking into his palace, she discovered that he had the criminal, Kano, imprisoned there. She made him a deal, in exchange for his assistance in defeating Motaro, she will give him precious jewels. After launching a sneak attack on the Centaurian, Sheeva made plans to take down Shao Kahn and Kano offered to distract him. He told the Shokan to wait for his signal but actually double crossed Sheeva and told Kahn what she was planning. After Kano gave Sheeva the signal and she found Kahn ready and waiting to fight her, who fought her and defeated her. In the Konquest mode of Mortal Kombat Armageddon, Sheeva appeared in Shinnok's Spire in the Netherrealm and fought Taven. However this was revealed to be simply an illusion created by Shinnok to test the demigod.
In her ending, Sheeva defeated Blaze and was transformed into a goddess of destruction with a powerful kamidogu. She then laid waste to the realms and when they reformed, nothing was as it had been. However, no one survived Armageddon including Sheeva.
Mortal Kombat (2011)
In the opening, it shows where Sheeva died in Armageddon near the top of the Temple. Once the timeline is reseted Sheeva isn't seen until Cyrax is terminated with Kahn's agreement. Sheeva battles him first but is defeated along with Baraka, later they alert Kahn about the circumstance. After Liu kang wins the tournament And Shang Tsung Tricks Raiden with a new Tournament, Sheeva has Sonya held captive. She berates and states she would not be in the situation if she didn't attempt escape.
Jax, along with Raiden, and Johnny comes, after a brief battle with Jax, Sheeva is defeated. The next day Kitana is held for betraying Shao Kahn; She is held in magical bonds gaurded by Sheeva. Jade, arrives and fights Sheeva with Jade prevailing. When Earthrealm's invasion begins Sheeva changes her outfit with a little more armor and runs into Kabal who defeats her. Sheeva isn't seen again after this but after the death of Kahn she gathers her forces for battle against Kotal Kahn.
Her height is 7 feet. Sheeva is part of the shokan race and thus has four arms and three fingers on each (12 in all). She wears dark red lipstick and has orange eyes. Sheeva has black hair thats laid back. She has spiked gauntlets on her arms and legs with jewels that resemble rubies embedded in them. For clothing, She wears a revealing red strip onepiece thats held at the waist and goes over her chest, leaving her midriff, legs, feet and cleavage bare. She has an established, proportional body, excellent physical prowess, muscular limbs and a well-toned skin. Sheeva prefers going barefoot.
In her alternate costume Sheeva has more armor for protection and has her strips over her chest forming an X over her breast with chains running through it. She paints around her eyes with black as her color. With her armor she wears spiked metal shoulder guards and wears leg and thigh guards.
Powers and Abilities
Sheeva possesses the superhuman strength typical to her race and can shoot fireballs and perform a teleport stomp that other Shokan use. Having the fighting skills of her race she can throw her enemies or grab them and brutally beat them. She can jump high in the air and stomp on her opponents. Sheeva can fracture bones literally by just punching or crushing her opponents with body Shots. Her kicks are ferocious, being able to kick her opponents across the map or staggering them with all her might. Sheeva has a very high damage tolerance, being able to survive cuts and bruises and fatal wounds that would kill the average person.
Sheeva has the ability to ground stomp, being able stop shake the ground with powerful stomps hurting her enemy. Although not frequent, Sheeva is shown to be adept in sword-play using Shokan daggers only in Armageddon. Sheeva's fireballs have been evident for being stronger than most characters considering the damage and knocking them back.
While not entirely evil, Sheeva is mostly Shao Kahn's jailer usually being indifferent towards this job but sometimes hates it. Sheeva's two most significant characteristics are her willingness to defend the pride of the Shokan, and her eagerness to fight different types of opponents. Sheeva's personality strongly contrasts with the personalities of Goro and Kintaro as she is much more calm and respectful, even going so far as to bow after every battle, a clear display of dedication to even her opponents. Sheeva believes people that fight with honor are worthy to be called "warriors".
