in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance as a secret character, Mokap is described
as being a motion capture actor with a vast knowledge of martial arts and
fighting styles. Although he is introduced somewhat as a joke character,
he is indeed being treated as a legitimate figure in the canon plot. Mokap
has been involved with the events of the last few games, although the circumstances
as to how and why are very mysterious and vague. He seems to continually
find himself inexplicably transported to and wrapped up in the battles
that have transpired, simply by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Mokap's Deadly Alliance
bio reveals that he is a former martial arts teacher on the North side
of Chicago. One day he was called upon by Johnny
Cage to do some motion capture work for his new movie "Mortal Kombat:
Deadly Alliance", and he became the primary martial arts talent for motion
capture in this film. Mokap was flown to Hollywood to begin his first session,
which consisted mainly of the Crane and Snake styles (although none of
these martial arts have been used by Mokap in the games that he appeared).
It is unknown how
Mokap participated in the events of Deadly Alliance. Although he fought
on the side of good, he did not appear to have any effect on the outcome
of the battle. Some time after this, Mokap gained some telekinetic powers,
although the source of these powers was not explained. Mokap returned in
Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, again fighting for the side of Earthrealm and
for his life.
Kombat: Deadly Alliance
If you watched
the special features in Deadly Alliance, you'd know that Mokap looks exactly like the guy who did a
capture for the game... Midway really must've been running out of ideas
for character designs.
As you might've imagined, Mokap's fighting style didn't offer anything new, as
he pretty much used other characters' moves.
They should've let this design die, but they actually had the audacity to put
him in Armageddon... lol.
