Mortal Kombat Scorpion “Hanzo Hasashi” Funko POP
From Mortal Kombat, Scorpion, as a stylized Funko POP. Hanzo Hasashi, better known as Scorpion, is a resurrected ninja in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series as well as the mascot of the games. 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. Throughout the series, Scorpion has been a misguided antagonist after his resurrection, following those on the side of evil out of revenge and anger over the death of his family and clan. After being restored to his Human form and learning the truth about their demise, he has been a recurring supporting character for the series. When first seen, Scorpion can be described as the embodiment of vengeance and hatred. His vengeance against those who have wronged him is what drives most of his earlier motivations in the series.
His hunger for vengeance is so great that he would serve both sides of good and evil only for the sake of achieving his own goals but he is mostly seen within servitude of an antagonistic faction, particularly Quan Chi. While he his overall appearance gives off a menacing vibe, he is not inherently evil. Scorpion is rather a morally neutral character as his own personal goals matter more to him than things like the fates of the realms and will serve any side with the singular selfish hope of achieving them. Scorpion is not completely heartless though as he has a caring and honorable side to him as Hanzo Hasashi, his original human side, but which gets buried and repressed time and time again due to his lust for vengeance. He dearly loved his wife and son Harumi and Satoshi and had good relations with his clan the Shirai Ryu. But once him, his clan and family was massacred by their rival clan the Lin Kuei, Hanzo was reborn as the vengeful revenant known today as Scorpion.
Scorpion is an extremely strong fighter and possess command over Hellfire, as well as inability to die, thanks to the vengeful bonds on his soul, that allows him to pursue his targets until their demise. Scorpion is able to teleport and his mask, as well as the flesh behind it, hides the flaming skull that is his true face, from which he can spew lethal blasts of hellfire. The strength of his power depends on how long he stays in the Netherrealm. Scorpion’s signature attack is to send out his spear, a kunai on a long rope, that can be empowered with hellfire and impale it in his foes, then pull them in with it, exclaiming “get over here” or “come here“. Scorpion can also swing the spear around to lash at his opponents, in a slightly whip like fashion. As his alternate weapon fighting style, he uses a katana called the Mugai Ryu and in Mortal Kombat (2011), he wields a pair of short swords with more jagged blades.
