After a string of defeats at the hands of Earthrealm, Shao Kahn decides to target somewhere else for a change, if nothing else for a bit of a morale boost. Finding a realm full of technicolor marshmallow ponies, he figures it would be a good way to let off some steam.

He may have slightly underestimated them.

A Mortal Kombat / MLP oneshot crossover.

I don't usually like crossovers.
I liked this one.

Brilliantly funny story. Im not a big fan of Mortal Kombat, but it was hilarious to see a big musclebound dude get his shit kicked in by little ponies. :rainbowlaugh:

I'm reminded of that one XCOM crossover, the one with Mister Screamy, Celestia's pet berserker.

In any case, a most enjoyable "ponies are awesome" story. Thank you for it. :twilightsmile:

I would be lying if I said I wasn't a bit inspired by that. I love that story xD

This is a perfect opportunity to give shao khan this message: YOU WEAK, PATHETIC FOOL!

I found this quite enjoyable.

That was delightfully silly. :rainbowlaugh:

I picked up on that too, nice touch.

Story Approver

This was... oddly amusing. Well done.

:rainbowlaugh: AH ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
I can't breathe!
Ah ha ha ha ha!
And with Applejack kicking him in the-
Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
And oh my gosh, Maud Pie's emotion was so-
*Pounding the desk to the point where other family members come in asking what's so funny*

They made the great and powerful Shao Kahn, look like a pushover! :rainbowlaugh: How freaking hilarious!

Another entertaining story, I like it.

Awww maaaaan, I want to see Celestia come visit, it'll be SO AWESOME! :rainbowkiss::rainbowkiss: I just love it when she talks like a dissapointed mother to anybody!

Flawless Victory.

This is the funniest thing I've read in forever. Awesome job!

This reminds me of two stories, XCOM: Enemy Unthreatening and On the Classification of Divinity. This one is my favourite of the three (by a really big margin).

It reminds me of On the Classification of Divinity because Felruas and Shao Khan make the same mistake in assuming that Equestria is as helpless as it looks. Shao Khan is a lot more direct about what he's here to do, but that just means his failure is more spectacular. The following defeats at the hooves of Applejack and Maud actually made me think of the discussion in the comments for OtCoD, where people reimagined Equestria as some kind of post-epic campaign setting (one poster estimated that the average pony has comparable Strength to most dragons). Back when I was first critiquing the story, I remember thinking of suggesting something like this happening to Felruas--like, he sees an "ordinary pony" dragging a house through the ground--as a replacement for the Legion scene but at that point I was worried I was hounding you.

I actually didn't make the connection with Enemy Unthreatening until FanOfMostEverything pointed it out. I wasn't a big fan of that one. I felt like the princesses got lucky, since the aliens went from "orbital bombardment of major cities" to "try to stand on clouds, use a toxin that only hurts your own ships". I also found them pretty insensitive (Moira tells them about how bad it was on Earth, and they troll her for the rest of the story). Anyway, I liked Shao Khan vs Equestria much more because Shao Khan doesn't magically become retarded, it's just that his usual approach doesn't work here. The image of him helplessly raging in that bubble is hilarious, and as soon as he started provoking Maud I started smiling. I also found it amusing that Celestia seems to think Shao Khan is just a child acting up. I'm picturing her arriving in his throne room, and being so annoyed at him, and then at herself when she realizes what kind of person he really is.

Anyway, short version is I quite enjoyed this story.

You've pretty much completely grasped where the inspiration of this one comes from. I found the comment about ponies being epic-level on average to be a hilarious thought, and I personally quite enjoyed Enemy Unthreatening. I also wanted to put into practice some of the things I learned from Classification of Divinity, and I'm a sucker for crossover stuff- there's not enough good crossover material on this site in my opinion, especially with this recent influx of quasi-crossover stuff where people cosplaying as characters get sent to Equestria, allowing lazy writers to use all the strengths and abilities of the character in question without having to worry about such things as "staying in character".

The tragic thing about these "Humans Acting Villainous" stories is that the basic idea is actually pretty interesting. I like the idea of a confused and angry human lashing out at the ponies he believes to be hunting him (while those same ponies frantically hide their children from this "horrible monster"). But much like you said, so many of them just want to write crossovers where they can get away with having Darth Vader or Krieg cracking lame jokes or hitting on Fluttershy (and then half of them made the protagonist think they are the character they've become--why even bother with all the cosplay shit then?!). I recall wanting to write a short story where a human dressed as an obviously evil kind of character, like Darth Maul or Thresh perhaps, but when the ponies start panicking about the terrible monster coming to eat their foals he freaks out because there are unicorns and everyone's yelling abut monsters. Then Twilight finds him hiding under a log or something, in the fetal position and clearly terrified of her. You know, have the guy react the way most people would if they woke up surrounded by magical ponies. I swear, if I ever had like a week where the only way I could pass the time was by finally writing all those story ideas I've come up with, I would barely be halfway done by the time the week ended.

Shao Kahn was like "Fuck you I do what I want" and then Equestria was like:
Wow....I think this has to be one of the funniest things I've read all day:rainbowlaugh: Keep up the good work, it would be awesome to see a sequel or something:rainbowlaugh: I will be watching from the shadows:rainbowdetermined2:

I wouldn't mind having the bad guy from some other fighting game come to Equestria.

Of course, I'd also LOVE to do a crossover with Brutal Legend, but I still have no idea how that would work.

4630361 What about M.Bison from street fighter:trixieshiftright:?

Problem is that I hate Street Fighter's character designs, and the only fighting game that I know the lore of well enough to use (Samurai Shodown) doesn't have characters that I think would be very interesting to see in Equestria.

4631606 Well, whatever works for you. You are the writer after all:twilightsmile:

This was fucking brilliant. I can't think of anything else to say other than that. Just fucking brilliant.

You know, I don't get much time to read for enjoyment anymore, but every now and again I'll pick a random story out and see how we go.

I was not disappointed this time.

This is one of the rare comedies that I actually find funny. Shao Kahn's depiction as an angry, muscle-bound failure is great, and Quan Chi's reactions are dead-on to what I'd expect. Each round with the various ponies was fresh, and I never found myself bored from repetition.

There are a few faults though. Some mechanical issues in the writing, using 'buck' as a curse word (pet peeve of mine), and so on. But the story doesn't suffer too much from it, and a good editing pass can correct all of that, anyway.

Great job!

It's reviews like this that give me the warm fuzzies and remind me why I like to write :D

To you, and to everyone else who reads my stories though, if you see mistakes that I've made then please, by all means tell me! I'm always happy to hear about what I could fix, it's the only way that I can really improve.

Haha! He got rekt.

"Let's rock."

I can't breathe from laughter!:rainbowlaugh:

For the record,

Second he comes through the portal, fatality A. If she's not expecting it, it'll be easy.

If she didn't have warding spells to protect from assassination attempts via crossbows and the like, I imagine she would be long dead.

I picture her regalia as having heavily protective enchantments on them.

"How strong could they be?" These are words no-one with half a brain would ever say to a world filled with equines.

Shit, it's a good thing he didn't run into Pinkie, Rarity, Rainbow or Twilight then if he couldn't take Applejack or Maud.

i loved this story and i too want to see what would happen when Celestia would go to Outworld and scold him more and see what the Elder Gods would say or do to Shao Khan probably laugh their heads of and give him a fitting punishment for his crime against "ponyrealm"

Is it bad that I want see celestia and her sister visiting outworks and putting shows Kahn and rest of outword in there place
