What does KABAL mean?
- Kabal is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise, created for Midway Games by Ed Boon and John Tobias. He was introduced in Mortal Kombat 3 as a former member of Kano's Black Dragon criminal organization who had reformed as a force for good and thus became one of the chosen defenders of Earthrealm, while notably suffering an attack by Outworld emperor Shao Kahn's extermination squads that leaves his face disfigured and forcibly concealed behind a mask. In the three-dimensional Mortal Kombat games, he returns to the side of evil by reforming the Black Dragon and feuding with Mavado, leader of their bitter rival, the Red Dragon. Kabal returns to the side of good in the 2011 Mortal Kombat reboot, again having quit the Black Dragon and fighting alongside Kurtis Stryker to defend Earthrealm against Kahn's forces. Considered one of the most powerful characters in MK3, Kabal has received mostly positive fan and critical reception in this regard, but response to his Fatalities has been decisively mixed, while he has played a fairly scant role in both the overall series continuity as well as in alternative Mortal Kombat-related media and merchandising.
