As a chosen warrior, his identity is a mystery to all. It is believed he is a survivor of a attack by Shao Kahn's extermination squads. As a result, he is viciously scarred, kept alive by artificial respirators and a rage for ending Shao Kahn's conquest.

Fighting as Kabal

When Kabal is your man, always be ready to execute his Web Spin. If you capture your opponent in the Web Spin, perform combo #3. If your opponent jumps over you, perform the Web Spin and catch him/her in mid-air. Walk up to them and wait for them to fall. Then uppercut them on their way down.

Also, if your opponent jumps, use your Fireball in the air to bring them down. Continue to do so to keep your opponent on the ground.

Fighting Against Kabal

To defeat Kabal, you need to be able to block his Web Spin. If you do, counter it with an uppercut or a large combo of your choice.

Beware of Kabal's Fireball. He can easily knock you out of the air if he anticipates a jump from you.

If Kabal performs his Ground Saw, counter it with a jump kick or a combo.

Kabal's Weaknesses

The biggest flaw Kabal has is the lag time after his Web Spin is blocked. This allows your opponent to counter with an uppercut or a deadly combo. His Ground Saw is easy to detect and will allow an opponent to jump kick you or counter with a combo.


After returning from near death, Kabal swears revenge against his attackers. He fights alongside the other Earth warriors. When he defeats Motaro and the mighty Shao Kahn, he proves he is truly the chosen one. Before the invasion, Kabal had led a life of crime. He was once a member of the Back Dragon along with Kano. Now Kabal devotes his life to fighting injustice. He gives crime's inner circle something to fear.
