Has imparted some or all of their fighting prowess upon another.
Kombat Rebooted
Kung Lao's ancestor was defeated by Goro 500 years ago in the pivotal match that saw Shang Tsung attain control of the Mortal Kombat tournament. To him this contest is about more than Earthrealm's freedom. His life's goal has been to slay Goro and win the tournament, thus restoring his family's honor. After being defeated by Liu Kang in a qualifying bout, he disguised himself as one of Shang Tsung's guards to gain admittance. Kung Lao believes he is ready for the challenge. The time to avenge his ancestor is at hand.
Kombat Kontinues
A former Shaolin Monk and member of the White Lotus Society, he is the last descendant of the great Kung Lao who was defeated by Goro 500 years ago. Realizing the danger of the Outworld menace he joins Liu Kang in entering Shao Kahn's contest.
The Wrath of Kahn
Kung Lao's plan to reform the White Lotus Society comes to a halt when Shao Kahn's invasion takes the Earth by storm. As a chosen warrior Kung Lao must use his greatest fighting skills to bring down Shao Kahn's reign of terror.
A New Dimension of Kombat
Many believed that Kung Lao had died from injuries suffered during the final fight against Shao Kahn. In fact he merely turned to a new life without violence in reverence to his ancestral beliefs. As news of Shinnok's threat reaches Kung Lao together with the apparent return of Goro, Kung Lao returns once more to challenge his ancestor's killer.
MK Trilogy Endings
When Kahn invades Earth, Kung Lao must scrap his plans of reuniting the White Lotus Society. He instead must focus on the new tournament. He seeks Liu Kang and together they battle Kahn's forces fearlessly. Using the knowledge he obtained as a Shaolin Monk he fights in the name of his great ancestor - the original Kung Lao. He emerges victorious but suffers from injuries during battle with Kahn. Believed to have passed away Kung Lao joins his ancestor in a new life.
Deadly Alliance
Kung Lao was the first to find the body of his friend and fellow Shaolin monk Liu Kang. He later discovered that it was in fact Shang Tsung who had dealt the fatal blow. Enraged, Kung Lao abandoned his Shaolin beliefs and vowed revenge against the sorcerer. He knew that his fighting skill would not be sufficient to best Shang Tsung. He would need training from the same Outworld master who had taught Liu Kang the one special attack he needed to win the Mortal Kombat tournament so many years ago.
Kung Lao traveled to Outworld and informed the martial arts master, Bo' Rai Cho, of Liu Kang's death at the hands of the sorcerer Shang Tsung. Devastated by the news, the old master agreed to teach Kung Lao the flying kick Liu Kang had used to defeat Shang Tsung a decade ago. The training was intense, but Bo' Rai Cho was determined to give Kung Lao a greater edge than he had given Liu Kang. Once Kung Lao had mastered the 'Whirlwind Kick', both he and Bo' Rai Cho journeyed across Outworld to deal with the sorcerer Shang Tsung.
Return of the Dragon King
A member of the White Lotus sect of the Shaolin, Kung Lao was the first to discover the body of his longtime friend Liu Kang. Having traveled to Outworld to train with Master Bo'Rai Cho, Kung Lao sought to avenge Liu Kang's death by defeating his killer, Shang Tsung.
MK Armageddon Endings
The power released by his victory over Blaze opened a portal, and Kung Lao found himself in Earthrealm hundreds of years in the past.

His ancestor allowed him to enter the Mortal Kombat tournament in his stead. Kung Lao defeated Goro and won the tournament, becoming a legend.

As a result, Liu Kang never competed, and Kung Lao's rivalry with him never came to be.

Fun Facts
Lost Kombatants
Ed Boon and the Mortal Kombat crew were working on several characters in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe that would have served as downloadable content, including Quan Chi, Harley Quinn, Kung Lao, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Lobo, and Doomsday. However, with Midway's failing financial situation, and the advent of work beginning on the next entry in the series, the characters were scrapped. Reportedly, Quan Chi and Harley Quinn were the closest to completion.
