Raiden is one of the most popular characters from the Mortal Kombat series. He is the God of Thunder, former protector of Earthrealm, and also a former Elder God. He is immensely powerful, and has complete control over electricity. Although he rarely fights in the games, he is quite powerful, and can defend himself in a fight. He is so powerful, that he is prohibited to participate in Mortal Kombat tournaments unless he takes a mortal form.
