About Johnny Cage

Johnny Cage is a movie star who is a master of martial arts. Although he is a primary character, he's more of a comic relief in contrast to the stoicism of Liu Kang. He jokes around a lot and can be a little full of himself every now and then. He is a good friend to Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and Sonya Blade. Hawaiian State Grappling Championships. ... For the artist, see Liu Kang (artist). ... Sonya Blade is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat fighting games series. ...


In interviews during the development of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks it was stated by Ed Boon and several other staff members that Cage is indeed considered the comic relief character of Mortal Kombat. This is also noticeable throughout the series as Cage as often been the root of many jokes by the team working on the series (such as his MK4 ending and his storyline in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance). Comic relief is the inclusion of a humorous character or scene or witty dialogue in an otherwise serious work, often to relieve tension. ... Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is a video game developed and produced by Midway. ...


Storyline

In the first game, Johnny is derided by film critics and the movie-going public for using special effects and wires for his fights. Unknown to them, his patented "Shadow Kick" and "Force Ball" were not effects; he actually performed those supernatural feats. To prove it to the world, he entered the Mortal Kombat tournament. During the final battle between Liu Kang and Shang Tsung, he teamed up with Sonya and Kano to fight Goro near the pit. When Shang Tsung's island fortress began to crumble because of his defeat to Liu Kang, Raiden saved Johnny and dropped him off at a boat that belonged to the Special Forces Agency near the island. He then met Jax and was interrogated by him on the whereabouts of Sonya. Johnny told Jax all about the events on the island, but the major didn't believe him. After Johnny was set free, he made the movie Mortal Kombat, based on his experiences, which revived his then-failing career.

Goro is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. ... “Rayden” redirects here. ...


Not long after that, Johnny was attacked while shooting a commercial by a revitalized Shang Tsung, Kintaro, Baraka, Kitana and Mileena. Luckily for him, Jax arrived and tried to help him. They were later joined by the other Earthrealm warriors to help fight the horde off. He then traveled into Outworld with his friends for Mortal Kombat, eventually Liu Kang challenged the emperor, proving again he was the true champion of Mortal Kombat, Kang beat Kahn within inches of his life. Defeated, Kahn ordered his forces to kill the Earth warriors. Johnny’s comrades were fortunate to make their way back to Earthrealm, Cage however was caught by one of Shao Kahn’s extermination squads and killed.

When Shao Kahn invaded Earthrealm by way of a loophole involving having his deceased Queen Sindel reincarnated on Earth in Mortal Kombat 3, Cage, due to the merger of the realms blocking his ascent into the Heavens, was one of the chosen warriors whose soul was protected by Raiden. Like the other chosen warriors, he became a target for Kahn's Extermination Squads yet again. Shao Kahn is a fictional boss and recurring playable character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. ... This article is about the Mortal Kombat character. ... Mortal Kombat 3 (also known as MK3) is the third game in the Mortal Kombat series, released in arcades in 1995. ...


After Shao Kahn’s defeat at the hands of Liu Kang, Johnny’s soul was free to leave to a higher place. Johnny watched from the heavens as the events of Mortal Kombat 4 unfolded. The fallen Elder God Shinnok attacked Earthrealm. Johnny Cage sought out Raiden so that he could restore his deceased soul and fight alongside Liu Kang once more and help defeat Shinnok. After the defeat of Shinnok, it appeared as though Raiden’s revival of Cage was permanent as he did not ascend back to the heavens but instead remained on Earth.


Years later, in the events of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Johnny Cage went on to film Mortal Kombat: The Death of Johnny Cage, in which he was repeatedly killed and brought back to life. Upset at the way he was being portrayed, believing his own adventures were far more entertaining, he wanted out of the movie but he couldn't due to his contract. Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is a video game developed and produced by Midway. ...


But as luck would have it, he was approached by Raiden, who asked him to help fight the Deadly Alliance of Quan Chi and Shang Tsung. At first, Johnny thought it was the actor who played Raiden, but when he saw the actor eating lunch, he realized it was the real Raiden, who told him to go to Shang Tsung's island for further instructions. He found a loophole in his contract and left the movie. He would then use this new adventure to make his own movie. Arriving on the island by way of parachute, he learned of Liu Kang's tragic death and went to Outworld to help his friends. Between the end of the events of Deadly Alliance and the beginning of the events of Mortal Kombat: Deception, Cage was killed during the final assault on the Deadly Alliance (he, Sonya, Kung Lao, Kitana, and Jax were overwhelmed by the Deadly Alliance's Tarkartan warriors). Soon afterward, he was resurrected by Onaga and made into his slave. Ermac's Deception ending, which shows him and Liu Kang's spirit being successful in rescuing the enslaved Earthrealm warriors, is generally accepted as the possible explanation.

Cage's Armageddon bio tells of his worries about the future. Since Liu Kang had died, and Raiden was now following his own personal agenda, the warriors who have long battled against the forces of darkness didn't seem to have a leader anymore. Some time later, Cage began to receive visions of Shinnok, who was coming up with a plan and giving commands to his minions. Cage decided to find out what was going on, by visiting the locations that he saw in his visions. He found evidence that Shinnok had been to these places, and eventually found Shinnok himself at Shang Tsung's island fortress. Communicating via a portal, Shinnok was speaking to Quan Chi, commanding him to gather their forces and take control of Shao Kahn's Outworld fortress. Once the portal disappeared, Cage approached Shinnok, and the former Elder God attempted to use his powers against him. Cage evaded Shinnok's attacks, and even managed to overpower him. Shinnok retreated by vanishing in a cloud of smoke. Now that Cage knew something about Shinnok's schemes, and with no-one else to lead an assault, he took it upon himself to gather his allies and plan a course of action.[1]


In his Armageddon ending, after defeating Blaze and gaining godlike powers, Johnny Cage gives up his superficial life for a life of enlightenment.[2]

Combat characteristics

Signature moves

  • Green Flame / Plasmic Fireball: Cage throws a green fireball into the air, which leaps through the air before curving down towards the ground until it hits the opponent. In the games preceding Deadly Alliance, this move had a variation, in which Cage throws the fireball on a higher arc. (MKII, MKT, MK4, MKG, MK:DA, MK:SM, MK:A)
  • Shadow Kick: Cage would slide across the floor, connecting with a kick to the torso of his opponent. As its name implied, he left a green trailing image of himself. However in Deadly Alliance and on, he just leaves a trail of green behind him. (MK, MKII, MKT, MK4, MKG, MK:SM, MK:DA, MK:A)
  • Split Punch / Sliding Uppercut/ Ball Breaker: One of Cage's most memorable moves where he does the splits and punches his opponent in the groin. This only worked on male fighters, except in Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, where he is able to do the move on Kitana. In Deadly Alliance and on, Cage can do a modified version of this when instead of punching the groin, he rises up with a surprise uppercut with his punching arm a glowing green. (MK, MKII, MK4, MKG, MK:DA, MK:SM, MK:A)
  • Shadow Uppercut: Cage would leap into the air and deliver an uppercut, leaving a green trailing image of himself in the process. (MKII, MKT, MK4, MKG, MK:SM)

Recurring fatalities

  • Decapitation: Johnny Cage takes his opponent's head off with a vicious uppercut. A glitch allowed the fatality to be performed multiple times in MK, while in MKII and the Nintendo 64 version of MKT, the multiple decapitation was a legitimate finishing move (achieved by holding a certain button combination, after performing the regular decapitation fatality). (MK, MKII, MKT, MK4, MKG, MK:SM)
  • Torso Rip: Johnny Cage grabs his enemy around the waist, rips their upper body from their lower, and throws it to the ground. (MKII, MK4, MKG, MK:SM)
  • Torso Kick : Johnny Cage performs a modified version of his Shadow Kick which delivers a fatal blow to his opponent's torso. In Shaolin Monks, Cage will step in and defeat Goro with this move when you defeat Goro. (MK SNES, MKT N64)

The Nintendo 64 ), often abbreviated as N64, is Nintendos third home video game console for the international market. ...

Appearances in other media

Film

Linden Ashby as Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat.

In the first Mortal Kombat movie, Johnny Cage was portrayed by Linden Ashby, whose portrayal was faithful to the games in keeping with Cage's personality and his comic-relief role. His first fight was with Scorpion, who countered Cage's Shadow Kick by teleporting them both to his hidden lair. After Johnny finished Scorpion, he left behind an autographed picture (his Friendship from MKII). Johnny later challenged Goro to single combat. Goro destroyed Johnny's sunglasses during a prematch face-off, and Cage retaliated with a Split Punch; he eventually defeated Goro by kicking him off a cliff.

Cage reappeared in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, and was played by Chris Conrad. He was killed by Shao Kahn in the first five minutes when Kahn blocked a Shadow Kick sent his way in Cage's attempt to save Sonya, and snapped his neck shortly thereafter. Cage is seen removing his sunglasses as he first appears onscreen, despite the fact that they were crushed by Goro in the previous movie. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997) was directed by John R. Leonetti. ... Chris Conrad is an American actor. ... Shao Kahn is a fictional boss and recurring playable character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. ...


Comic books

Johnny Cage is one of the main good characters in the Malibu Comics series. His portrayal in the comics is faithful to the games, keeping both his desire to prove his moves are real and his personality traits. He appears during the whole Blood & Thunder series, most of the time alongside Sonya (from which the comics hint at a relationship). His most serious moment is during issue 4 when he, under Raiden's advice, decides to not seek the power of the Tao Te Zhan since that would be like faking his moves in his films. Malibu Comics was a comic book publisher in the late 1980s and early 1990s, best known for its Ultraverse line of superhero titles. ...


During the second series, Battlewave, he is seen resuming his acting career when Sonya asks him to help with an investigation after Jax was brutally attacked. At first he refuses, but later reconsiders what's important and decides to follow with Jax into the Outworld. In the meantime, he sends his musclebound bodyguard, Bo, to protect Liu Kang.


Character development

The original name for Cage was going to be Michael Grimm. It was changed during preproduction of MK. Cage's "real name" came from Midway game artist John Carlton, who worked on the popular NBA Jam arcade series. NBA Jam is a basketball arcade game created by Midway in 1993. ...


In the first game, Cage was modeled after the Belgian actor Jean-Claude Van Damme (Ed Boon and John Tobias initially wanted to make a fighting game featuring the action star, but Van Damme had commitments to another company for a game which was never made). His character is loosely based around Van Damme's portrayal of Dux Ryu Ninjutsu founder Frank Dux in the 1988 movie Bloodsport. This is apparent in more than one way as Cage's trunks in the first MK are nearly identical to the ones worn by Van Damme in the last fight of the movie. Also, his split punch is taken from an actual scene in the movie. He would wear his trademark sunglasses only in his winning animations in the first two games, but he is seen wearing them all the time starting with MK Trilogy. Cage was exclusively recreated for Mortal Kombat Trilogy due to the fact that Daniel Pesina was fired by Midway in 1994 after appearing in an ad for the arcade game BloodStorm dressed as Cage, and thus they couldn't use his MK2 sprite. He was replaced by Chris Alexander. Van Damme redirects here. ... Year 1988 (MCMLXXXVIII) was a leap year starting on Friday (link displays 1988 Gregorian calendar). ... Bloodsport is a 1988 martial arts film starring Jean-Claude Van Damme. ... Johnny Cage performing his shadow kick while Raiden sends a lighting bolt Mortal Kombat Trilogy is a fighting game developed and published by Midway. ... Year 1994 (MCMXCIV) The year 1994 was designated as the International Year of the Family and the International Year of the Sport and the Olympic Ideal by the United Nations. ... BloodStorm is a fighting game released into arcades in 1994 by Strata and developed by Incredible Technologies, the same people who created Time Killers. ...


Since Deadly Alliance, Cage has been designed to look more like an Hollywood actor; he is made more muscular and his glasses become more stylish. His hair also changed to a shorter, dark brown hair in MK4, and later to a longer, tousled golden brown in Deadly Alliance and on.


Cage was the lone character in the original MK who did not have a past history with any of the other characters. Though not determined, his lack of storyline may likely have played a part in his omission from several MK side projects. He was the only character from the first MK game who did not appear in Jeff Rovin's non-canon 1995 novel, and the only one of the seven playable fighters in MK not to appear in the 1996 animated series.


Game information

Cage was the last character in the original MK to be given a Fatality. Until a last-minute brainstorm by co-creator John Tobias that later evolved into the uppercut Fatality, he was simply going to throw his opponent across the screen as a finishing move. John Tobias (born August 24, 1969 in Chicago, Illinois) was one of the creators (along with Ed Boon) of the groundbreaking Mortal Kombat fighting game series for Chicago-based Midway. ...


He was also the only one character in MK2 who has two different images in his profile and versus screen.


Cage was left out from the Game Boy version of MK, MK2, MK4 and MK:DA due to memory constraints. However, he appears in Game Boy Advance-exclusive Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition. For the entire Game Boy series of handheld consoles, see Game Boy line. ... “GBA” redirects here. ...


In early arcade test versions of MKII, the word "Otomix" appeared on Cage's pants (they were worn by actor Daniel Pesina during filming), but was omitted in subsequent chip upgrades. Otomix is an actual established supplier of martial arts and athletic wear. [1] [2] [3] Daniel Pesina as Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat II. Daniel Pesina (born 1959 in Chicago, Illinois) is a martial arts expert and a former employee of Midway. ...


The Red Shadow Kick special move occurred randomly in MKII. In MKT the Red Shadow Kick is a separate move from the Green Shadow Kick. In MK4 and MK Gold, selecting Player 2's outfit would cause the moves to have red shadow properties, rather than green. Also, in Shaolin Monks, Johnny Cage's shadow uppercut appeared red, oddly, while all of his other moves were green.


One of Cyrax's Konquest missions in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance has him practicing moves against Johnny Cage, supposedly taking out his frustration over how much he hates Cage's films (especially Ninja Mime). According to his Konquest mode, he appeared on Celebrity SMASH TV (as a result, Smash TV and the Mortal Kombat series are both portrayed as occurring in the same fictional universe). He donated all of his winnings on the show to charity. Smash TV is a 1990 arcade game created by Eugene Jarvis and Mark Turmell for Williams. ...


In Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Cage serves as a tribute to Bruce Lee as he uses Lee's Jeet Kune Do fighting style and the nunchaku, Lee's signature weapon, as his weapon style. In his ending, the movie poster shows Cage and Sonya together, with Cage standing proud and Sonya seated and clinging to his leg.

Johnny Cage's ending in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

In MK: Armageddon, Johnny Cage and Goro are shown in one of the main menu screen, portraying them as rivals. But while all the other menu screens in the game have the evil/neutral character in the foreground and the good character in the background with full-body, Johnny Cage and Goro are shown the other way around. In addition, Johnny Cage's main menu model has black short hair, based on early games, but his in-game model is golden to light brown, with longer hair and different sunglasses. Cage also appears in the opening cinematic of MK:A where he first fights Darrius and later Kano before pushing Sonya away from Quan Chi's sword during the latter's battle with Kenshi and then gets tackled by Hsu Hao to the side of the pyramid's main stairway. Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is a video game developed and produced by Midway. ... Quan Chi is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. ...


Reportedly, John Vogel did not like Cage's storyline in Mortal Kombat Trilogy and MK4, and Cage's Deadly Alliance bio can be viewed as retconning this, with Mortal Kombat: The Death of Johnny Cage explaining away - and mocking - his repeated death and revival during Trilogy and MK4. Fan reaction to this intent has been mixed; some like the loss of another "resurrection" storyline, which is becoming increasingly common in the Mortal Kombat story, but others feel the retcon destroys what was perceived as a refreshing change of pace for Cage's otherwise stilted storyline (with Cage's death and subsequent semi-altruistic resurrections portraying him more compassionate and understanding of the gravity of the tournament, instead of simply using them as inspiration for more of his movies). Others do not view this as a retcon at all, as it would directly contradict his story screens in Trilogy and MK4 and cannot therefore be canonical. To these fans, the references to The Death of Johnny Cage movie therefore take on a more satirical aspect. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...
