Jian Hai's Original UniverseEdit
Jian Hai was a Shaolin monk, who was a member of The Order of Light, a clan once lead by Liu Kang but after he was killed, he took leadership over it. Over the years, him and many other fighters were getting too strong for their own good. Insufferably strong to be exact, and they needed to be stopped. In Edenia, a huge crater lied empty, and the Elder Gods took a plan to make it so these fighters would weak. In that huge crater, a battle outbroke betweeen the Forces of Light, and the Forces of Darkness. Jian Hai took his side with the Forces of Light and was last seen battling Quan Chi alongside Kenshi on the Pyramid of Argus before being stabbed in the chest by Kabal and dying.
He appeard solely as a secret character in MK3, and served as a minor, but playable character in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.
Jian Hai was trained extremely well in the ways of Shaolin and Edenian fighting styles. He is very quick, and agile with his moves and is always ready to pounce.

- Pitchfork: Jian Hai races towards the opponent with his trident in his hand and jabs them in the stomach and throwing them face first on to the ground. The charged move of this consists of Jian stabbing the opponent in the throat first, and then doing the rest of the move. (MK3, MK:A, MKX)
- Here Rises the Devil: Jian slams his pitchfork on to the ground four times, and cracks surround the opponent. The opponent yells before being sucked into the ground, never to be seen again. (MK3)
