He would remain inactive
until the events of Mortal Kombat 4, being one of the few remaining Earthrealm
gods not destroyed by Shinnok. He joined Raiden in his battle against his

Shinnok's defeat, Fujin consulted with the Elder Gods. They revealed to
him that he had a new task. Raiden appeared before him and informed him
of his own impending ascension to the pantheon of Elder Gods. Earthrealm

During the time of
Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, Fujin became aware of a stark change in Raiden.
He saw that the thunder god, while still seeking to protect Earthrealm,
had grown to be ruthless. Raiden was now commanding the reanimated corpse
of Liu Kang, who was killing many innocent people for unknown reasons.
Fujin allied with Kung Lao in
hopes that they could possibly find a way to save both Raiden and Liu Kang.
From Kung Lao he learned of Johnny Cage's gathering of the Forces of Light
and the mention of the brothers Taven and Daegon. It is revealed that Fujin
had been a friend of their family for ages, and that he had questioned
their father Argus when the two disappeared. He realizes that Argus placed
them on a quest, but now this quest was becoming corrupted by evil. Fujin
then goes to search for both brothers, hoping to prevent their progress
and learn the true purpose of their quest.
