Hanzo Hasashi, now known as Scorpion (全蠍人, "Full Scorpion Man"), is a resurrected ninja in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He is one of the very few original characters debuting in the first Mortal Kombat arcade game. He holds the distinction, along with Raiden and Sub-Zero (in one form or another), of appearing in every generation of Mortal Kombat games as a playable character
Greatest Strength: His mastery of combat.
Greatest Weakness: Hard to say what his greatest weakness is but it might be his hunger for revenge. It has often clouded his judgement.
Best Friends: The Scorpion Squad, Sagat, Bender, Lizbeth and Skipper
Worst Enemies: Quan Chi, the Joker and Hunson Abadeer
Voiced by: Patrick Seitz
He is in charge of he Scorpion Squad and becomes this to M.O.D.A.B too, when Lizbeth, Boomer, Nina leave alongside Bender, Brick and Butch.
It is known that his father, a former member of the Shirai Ryu, forbade his son from joining the clan, as he did not wish for his son to live the life of an assassin. However, Hanzo joined in spite of his father's wishes in order to provide his wife and son with a comfortable life.
Now Scorpion is a hell-spawned spectre, inexorably seeking vengeance against those responsible for the destruction of his clan and the death of his own family. Despite his malevolent appearance, he is not inherently evil. He joins the forces of evil when promised a means of resurrecting his clan on Earth, or the chance to inflict his wrath against those who butchered them. Scorpion has also (indirectly) assisted the game's protagonists to fulfill these motives.
Scorpion is perceived by fans as the title's foremost anti-hero. He undertakes actions that benefit the forces of good, albeit in his own gruesome and vigilante manner. His attitude, appearance and self-reliance have all contributed to his popularity. Compared to the purely virtuous "good guys", and the diabolically evil "bad guys", Scorpion's moral neutrality is unique. Although he is featured alongside the forces of evil in the opening scene of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, he remains neutral because of his fierce hatred of Quan Chi.
Scorpion appears human when masked, though this is merely an illusion. Only his skull remains when in his true form, sometimes ablaze. However, he can fully regain his human appearance if he conquers his own demons. Scorpion's most popular and recognized skill is his famous spear attack, which is used to draw an opponent toward him. This attack will also stun the opponent for a short amount of time. Scorpion will shout, "Get over here!" or "Come here!", while executing this technique.
Although Scorpion is often strict and wrathful, at times he shows a caring side and is very honorable. In the original timeline, when he discovers the Sub-Zero in the second tournament isn't Bi-Han and in fact his more merciful brother, Scorpion vows to protect Kuai Liang instead for killing his kin. In the second timeline, Scorpion truly intended to spare the first Sub-Zero in exchange for the resurrection of his clan, but Quan Chi prevented this. Most notably, in the Mortal Kombat X Comic, it's shown he took in victims and survivors of the Netherrealm War into his iteration of the Shirai Ryu to now protect Earthrealm while also raising Takeda Takahashi. During this time, he treated Takeda like his own son, such as when he comforts Takeda after Fox's death.
The B Team/P Team Storyline
He debuted here along with old pal Axel as the gang joined on Bender's quest against Uka Uka and proved himself a loyal alley to him as they fought together as the forces of evil. During their shadow realm he introduced to the crew his friends Subzero and Smoke and after some formal introduction they joined the team. Scorpion went his way to help the crew. And at the end he went to the wedding for Fiona and Scourge.
During this adventure the heroes went to the future but Scorpion unfortunately got kidnapped by Hunson Abadeer and was turned into Inferno Scorpion to serve Abadeer, He served him with the other henchmen although he was beginning to become defiant when Joker returned and when he steeped out of line too far, Scorpion decided to leave but he lost his powers to Abadeer who made him read his contract. He decided to settle for revenge against Joker but his revenge made him blind to what Hunson Abadeer and Joker planned against him. After Hunson Abadeer was beaten and they got home Scorpion blamed himself for everything that happened mostly the stuff the Joker did. Lizbeth helped him feel better and later Scorpion went back on his quest for revenge on Quan Chi. But it's a quest that he will not take alone.
Quest For Revenge:

But where he make's enemies he also make's new friends. Scorpion has gotten his own team to help him take down Quan Chi and stop whatever he is planning. During the adventure he saw Subzero somehow he returned and Subzero said he served Quan Chi now. After beating him Scorpion knew something was wrong.

Scorpion went after Quan Chi. The two fought matching each other blow for blow. When it seem that they both could not fight anymore, Quan Chi's spell was about to take over Galvatron. But then suddenly, Hell began to shake. Something was happening in another part of the Multi-Universe that cause this and this had caused the spirits of Scorpion family and clan to show up. They all grabbed Quan Chi and Scorpion finished him without any mercy. With Quan Chi dead, the spirits of the fallen heroes and villains returned to where they belong. With the Multi-Universe safe and Quan Chi dead, Scorpion and his allies left Hell and decided to get some rest. Now Scorpion wonders: what is left for him to do now that he got his revenge? After that, he and his group were watching by a man named Ocelot who reported the news back to his superior, telling them he is watching them ready to help but says that after seeing how strong they were they might not need his help...
He, his team, and old friend Sagat were waiting for Bender to ether come back or call him asking for back up. Scorpion met Bender's friends of the P Team who were under attack by robots and demons. He and his team saved them and then they joined in their adventure to defeat Galactus. After their adventure with the P Team, they returned with Bender and his team.

Scorpion joins Dib's side but under Bender as well as Skipper and Heloise's true intentions for Dib not knowing about Discord.

Wrath of the God of War Rises
Meister of War
Before Noob Saibot become the dark being he is today he was once an assassin named Bi-Han who of clan call the Lin Kuei and they were hated enemies to the Shira Ryu. Scorpion believed that Bi-Han was the behind the murder of his family and clan so when Quan Chi bought him back as a specter Scorpion killed Bi-Han. When Bi-Han came back as Noob Saibot, he did not seek out Scorpion. During the The Great Time Travel Adventure, when Noob joined the heroes, the 2 are not what you would call friends but they were willing to work together to take out Hunson Abadeer. They are doing so again against Discord and Sigma
For a long time Scorpion and Sub-Zero (Real name Kuai Liang) had been hated enemies. After Scorpion killed Sub-Zero's older brother Bi-Han he went looking for Scorpion so that he could avenge his brother. The 2 had a number battles. In their last fight Scorpion was told that Sub Zero was the murderer of his family and after defeating Sub-Zero, Quan Chi told him that he was the one but failed to get rid of Scorpion. A number of years went by and when the heroes and villains of the their universe found out about the Multi-Universe, Scorpion and Sub-Zero met once again decided that in order to stop the growing evil, they must work together.
Years back, the Mortal Kombat universe and the DC universe were becoming one. Scorpion, who still served Quan Chi at the time, went looking for Princess Kitana who had seen the one behind it. He began his search in Gotham city where he met the Joker. He asked where the princess was and after a stupid joke the Joker made, Scorpion was leaving. But Joker punched him with his boxing glove gun and then they fought. Scorpion beat the Joker with out any problem and he just left him. When Scorpion learned all the stuff the Joker did afterwards, he regrets not killing him when he had the chance.
These 2 met during The V Team Island Adventure. Scorpion has shown to be a powerful ally to Bender and great friend. After hearing what the Joker did during after he fought him Scorpion regrets not killing when he had the chance and knows that Bender did a great favor to the Multi-Universe. During The Great Time Travel Adventure, Scorpion was to the side of evil because Hunson Abadeer knew that Scorpion could beat Bender. But when Hunson betrayed Scorpion, Bender saved him and now Scorpion remains an ally to Bender and his team. Scorpion has learned three of Bender's new friends as well as the P Team. Scorpion does a whole bunch of fun and crazy stuff with him and Skipper.
The 2 met in the V team island adventure they had a few moments together like when Jimmy died. In the great time travel adventure when Scorpion became part of Hunson Abadeer group it was Scorpions job to look for the chosen one when he found it who was he did not tell Hunson because he wanted to fight Bender. At the end when Hunson Abadeer was defeated and the when everyone escape the end of the world, Scorpion tried to kill himself because he blamed himself for everyone's deaths. But Lizbeth stopped him, and because of her Scorpion greatly respects Lizbeth and he remembered his quest to kill Quan Chi. Scorpion and Lizbeth both have a strong rivalry with Hunson Abadeer.
During The Great Time Travel Adventure, Hunson Abadeer captured Scorpion and brain washed him to served him. Scorpion believed Hunson got him because he wanted him to kill Bender to bait the Joker. But unknown to the heroes the real reason Hunson got Scorpion was to keep the Joker in line for Hunson knew that Joker would betray him at one point. But Scorpion got freed of his control and returned to heroes. Scorpion has now decided that because of all the things he had him do and also cause he had brought the Joker back and the fact that he made a deal with Quan Chi he will kick Hunson Abadeer's ass back to the Nightosphere if he ever returns. Scorpion though does wonder why Hunson didn't kill him after he betrayed him. Unknown to him Hunson didn't because Scorpion was a great alley and foe, once of his greatest foes behind Hunson's main rival. Out of the heroes Scorpion has the second strongest rivalry with Hunson Abadeer after his friend Lizbeth.
He learns that Lizbeth struck a deal with him to stop the villains and he isn't happy but he decides to anyway only for her sake. While it was not easy for him but Scorpion held together all the way and while he still hates Hunson with a passion he knows that Lizbeth made the right choice.
Dib and his friends
Scorpion meet Dib's group at The Great Time Travel Adventure. While he was an ally to them Dib did not trust him because he did not know him. Then for most of the adventure he was an enemy because of Hunson Abadeer. He fought and beat many of the heroes who were with Dib but he wanted to beat Bender. After he returned to side of good, Scorpion helped everyone fight Hunson till Lizbeth defeated him.
He joins the Membrane Elite out of Bender asking him to for his own reason.
He met him during The V Team Island Adventure. Like Bender, Scorpion thinks of Skipper as a great friend and the two both have a love for combat. During The Great Time Travel Adventure along with Bender, Skipper helped save Scorpion from Hunson Abadeer. The 3 also like to do a whole bunch of fun and crazy stuff together.
Knuckles and the P Team
Scorpion meets these heroes during the adventure called "War of Destruction." In that adventure Scorpion and his allies saved from an attack. Because they were friends of Bender Scorpion decided to help them out in defeat Galactus. After the adventure, Scorpion now thinks Knuckles is a good friend and was honored to fight along side them. Scorpion and Squad decided to help Knuckles and his team more adventures.
