Zombies are an undead bloodthirsty species and a villainous faction in the Mortal Kombat universe.
Champion Liu Kang won four successive Mortal Kombat tournaments. After winning the fourth tournament, he lived a peaceful life at the Wu Shi Academy. During the same time, sorcerers Quan Chi and Shang Tsung formed a dangerous partnership with each other. Their first order of business was to kill Liu Kang. Both of the sorcerers invaded the Wu Shi Academy and found Liu Kang who was busy performing a kata. Quan Chi used a projectile to injure Liu Kang which was also a distraction. While Liu Kang was distracted, his neck was snapped by Shang Tsung. As the result, the warrior died.
Years later, the thunder god known as Raiden used his essence to destroy Outworld's former ruler Onaga. Quan Chi and Shang Tsung were also effected by Raiden's blast but they managed to survive.
Afterward, Raiden used his magic to reanimate the dead body of Liu Kang. Even though Liu Kang was brought back to life, he became a zombie instead of his former self.
After the resurrection was complete, Liu Kang started a rampage. He killed most of his fellow monks from the Wu Shi Academy. He then decided to assist Onaga with the war against Shao Kahn.
Eventually, Liu Kang somehow managed to regain control over his mind. He realized his actions and was stricken with grief. He then became aware that most of his friends were enslaved by Onaga. He managed to free his friends from Onaga's enslavement and was briefly reunited with them including his lover Kitana. They departed ways with Liu Kang.
Battle of Armageddon
Even though Liu Kang regained control over most of his body, he was still filled with hostility. He harbored immense hatred towards Shang Tsung who ended his alliance with Quan Chi. Liu Kang developed these feelings right before the Battle of Armageddon started.
During the battle, Shang Tsung was confronted by Liu Kang who was still a zombie. He gained hooks and used them on Shang Tsung. This caused the sorcerer to revert back to his form of old age. However, they were both killed in the Battle of Armageddon.

Another battle took place. Sub-Zero managed to defeat Quan-Chi and Shinnok. After the retrieving the medallion, Sub-Zero gave it to Raiden and returned home.

Ressurection of the Shirai Ryu
The Elder Gods made a deal with Scorpion. They promised to resurrect Scorpion's clan, the Shirai Ryu, in exchange for his defeat of Onaga. He gladly accepted their offer and defeated Onaga. The Elder Gods, however, did not fulfill their entire promise. They resurrected the Shirai Ryu but as zombies instead of humans.
