Sheeva was hand picked by Shao Kahn to serve as Sindel's personal protector. She becomes suspicious of Shao Kahn's loyalty toward her race of Shokan when he places Motaro as the head of his extermination squads. On the Outworld, Motaro's race of Centurions is the natural enemy of the Shokan.

Fighting as Sheeva

Using Sheeva correctly can be dangerous to your opponent. Fighting closely to your opponent and repeatedly using Combo #1 can cause damage if not blocked, or push you away if it is blocked.

Using Sheeva's standing HK to stop opponents from jump kicking you will be very useful. It's even more useful if you counter the HK with a Fireball. This can cause some serious damage.

If your opponent uses a projectile, counter it with her Teleport Stomp.

Fighting Against Sheeva

If you see Sheeva begin her Teleport Stomp, quickly run out of the way and counter with a large combo in you fighter's arsenal. If you anticipate her Teleport Stomp or her Fireball, counter them with a jump kick.

Sheeva's Weaknesses

Sheeva's major weakness occurs if her opponent runs of of harms way when she performs her Teleport Stomp. She can also be jump kicked if her Fireball or Ground Stomp is anticipated.


While Sheeva serves her master on Earth, her race of Shokan are being punished on the Outworld. Kahn now favors Motaro's race of centurions and aids them in defeating the Shokan. After learning of these events, Sheeva turns on her master. She defeats Motaro and in a rage brings down Kahn. In freeing Earth, she also frees the Outworld. She then returns home and works to restore the pride and respect of her race.
