In Mortal Kombat II,
after hearing of Goro's
death at the hands of Liu Kang,
Kintaro vowed to avenge his comrade and crush Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat.
Kintaro tried to prove his loyalty to Shao Kahn when he traveled to Earthrealm
with a Tarkatan horde to defeat Johnny
Cage. Although the attack failed due to the intervention of other
Earthrealm warriors, Kintaro continued to serve Shao Kahn. After Shang Tsung
was defeated again by Liu Kang, Kintaro then challenged Liu Kang in Mortal
Kombat. Kintaro fought well, but lost.
In Mortal Kombat:
Armageddon's Konquest mode, Kintaro is seen in the Netherealm along with Sheeva,
and a legion of demons all apparently working in an attempt to overthrow Shinnok's
rule at his spire. However, Shinnok later reveals that this was all created as
a test for Taven,
and that the Kintaro fought by him was an illusion.
