He has his old original appearance the Termor seen in Mortal Kombat 11 is the young Tremor from the original timeline. He can be found falling off a bridge at random time in a certain area and like other ninjas he is seen falling on to a spike and dies. After away like all the others his body and soul despise Shang Tsung takes his soul and turns into young Tremor.
