For the events on Earthrealm leading up to Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Hsu Hao was of prime importance. His superior, Mavado, gave him orders to act as a Chinese Secret Militant for the Special Forces and aid them in completely destroying the Black Dragon clan. Hsu Hao carried out his instructions without question and aided the U.S. Special Forces for years until the entire Black Dragon clan were seemingly eradicated, after the death of Jarek. Hsu Hao was called back to the Red Dragon headquarters at Charred Mountain but later received orders from Mavado to stay within the Special Forces HQ. He was then instructed to destroy their underground base and with it, their only means of inter-realm travel. He armed a miniature nuclear weapon and just escaped through the portal before it blew up.
As a result of his
betrayal, his former superior at the Special Forces, Jax, who just barely
escaped with his life, had a score to settle with him. After Mavado captured
and imprisoned Kano, Mavado sent
Hsu Hao to kill Shang Tsung under orders from Quan Chi. On his way to Tsung's
palace he was cornered and seemingly killed when his artificial heart was
ripped out by Jax.
