Mortal Kombat
Kombat Rebooted
Prince Goro has brought much honor to the Shokan race by serving Shao Kahn. His bloody achievements include crushed rebellions and conquered provinces. During the past 500 years he has been celebrated for winning the last nine Mortal Kombat tournaments for Outworld. Should he defeat Earthrealm's champion this time, he will become more than legendary. His victory is assured. There are none in Earthrealm who can withstand the might of Goro.
Kombat Begins
A 2000 year old half-human dragon, Goro remains undefeated for the past 500 years. He won the title of Grand Champion by defeating Kung Lao, a Shaolin fighting monk. It was during this period that the tournament fell into Shang Tsung's hands and was corrupted. Goro possesses both massive strength and great agility. None who have fought him have reported any weaknesses. In fact, none who have opposed him have survived!
The Wrath of Kahn
Goro, a 2000 year old half human/dragon, remains undefeated for the past 500 years. He won the title of Grand Champion by defeating Kung Lao, a Shaolin fighting monk. It was during this period that the tournament became corrupted as it fell into the hands of Shang Tsung.
A New Dimension of Kombat
The half human dragon stood as Shang Tsung's protector in the first tournament. Goro took the Mortal Kombat title from the original Kung Lao, only to have it won from him nine generations later by Lao's ancestor, Liu Kang. Seeking revenge, the Shokan prince has returned from the Outworld to crush Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat.
Return of the Dragon King
"Kitana's army allied with my Shokan warriors in an attempt to destroy my old master, Shao Kahn. It was rumored that he was weakening and that our victory was inevitable. During the last battle against Kano's militia, however, I was attacked from behind by a shadow warrior, Noob Saibot. I do not know for how long I lay dying on the battlefield, but when I regained consciousness, I was greeted by the last person I expected to see...

Shao Kahn found me near death upon the battlefield. Though he was not wearing his armor, I recognized his voice it was truly him. he used what little power he had left to revive me. He asked me to join him once again and aid in destroying a rising power in Outworld. In return, he would give the Shokan favored status and banish the Centaurs. I accepted his offer. I placed my royal seal on the disfigured corpse of a fallen Shokan Warrior and together we fled into hiding to regain our strength for the coming battle." -Goro
MK Armageddon Endings
Having defeated Blaze, Goro had attained the power of a god. But to the forces of Darkness, this power was not meant for a mere Shokan to wield.

Shang Tsung, Quan Chi, Shao Kahn and Onaga all had anticipated victory, only to have it stolen from them. The four surrounded Goro in a vain attempt to wrest the power from him.

Goro laughed, raised his arms and let forth an ancient Shokan battle cry. From out of nowhere an army of Shokan warriors stormed the pyramid and slaughtered the four attackers. The Shokan race will rule Outworld forever!

Fun Facts
Low Blow
In the Mortal Kombat movie Johnny Cage performs his infamous "splits punch" on none other than Goro. This is only interesting because Goro is one of the few characters Johnny has never been allowed to "splits punch" in game.
