The hero of the Mortal Kombat. He is the main protagonist oaccording to the story line of the series. Similar to Ryu from Street Fighter, he is a Japanese Martial artist. Liu fights in the Mortal Kombat tournament to protect the Earth realm from the evil forces that wish to rule it. Liu has the ability to transform into a giant dragon and devour his enemies. He also is known to shoot fireballs made from harnessing his life energy.
Also can be used as a verb. To "go Liu Kang" on someone is to fiercely pummel them. I created this usage, because it sounds better than to "go Ryu" although to "go Blanka" is pretty good too.
Only Liu Kang can protect our realm from the forces of Shao Kahn.
I'm gonna go Liu Kang on your ass, sucka!
