They should make a follow up after the tournament where he returns to that mental institution, frees the girl, and gives the head director a lobotomization....via an electric grab while doing the superman charge. Obviously the protector of Earthrealm wouldn't do that to a human for revenge, but it would be nice.

Read the beginning of the video please.....This is fanmade, not real lore, if raiden was like this, it would have been said in a game.

This is such an awesome interpretation. That doctor has to be colluding with outworld, either willingly or unknowingly. Thats the only reason for Raiden's captivity. He appeared in a crater! Hes got blue blood and brain matter. Come on. Blue is crazy but, not that crazy. Anyone else seeing this stuff would be like nah, all you people running this place are out of your minds, BOOM, committed. And Raiden is gone so any water retention their story might have had is verloren. And now doctor along with his staff are treated as delusional patients, in the same way they treated Raiden whose story was also entirely true. Its like an episode of the twilight zone

Y'all can complain and compare all you want.  I think this is a great writer's interpretation on Raiden.

Raiden is a criminal and should be arrested. He had no right to take that man's hat lol
Report spam or abuse
As far as I'm concerned, this is piss poor writing and ultimately makes one of the most awesome characters in mortal kombat into a pathetic punk.  I don't mind the idea that Raiden lands in a madhouse. But his escape should be easy for a  god with his abilities. How I would have written it is Raiden being able to escape but hesitates to because he's reluctant to harm humans,  And the head doctor at the madhouse being someone completely in denial despite seeing the weird things this man is capable of, bleeding blue blood for instance, enhanced strength, Drugs not working on him. etc and Raiden ultimately needing to make a choice, of having to force his way out, harming some humans in the process so he can compete in the Tournatment. Or accept his fate there, being unable to bring himself to harm humans.

+DC Frank A quick fix would have been to give the reason he cant use his powers well because he doesn't have his amulet, without that his powers are drained

What happened was he was over thrown of his title as the god of thunder by the elder gods taking away his power and sending him to earth that's why he can't house them he gets some of that power back because it was his iner power from his soul and that explains it

Isn't Raiden asian? They make him a white dude here and on the movies. Like what they did with Goku on the DB movie, another white dude... why do this? White people, man. I'm telling you. This Raiden looked more like Kano than the Kano from the first 2 episodes.

There are some questionable parts (blue blood, glowing eyes, no one noticed any of this?) but overall this and the cyrax/sektor episode are my favorites.

A few fun facts about Raiden: 1. He's the Japanese God of Thunder & Lightning. 2. He assumes a mortal form to defend Earthrealm. 3. He can take whatever form he chooses. Color, ethnicity, etc doesn't really matter (at least not to him). 4. Despite being a God he CAN be killed but he'll eventually reincarnate. 5. His powers are so immense that it causes him to shout gibberish. inserts clip of Flying Tackle 6. Raiden loses his powers if he leaves Earthrealm (I probably worded this wrong but this is why he couldn't participate in MK3 since Shao Kahn was forcibly merging the Realms together). 7. Christopher Lambert is the best live-action Raiden. 8. MOST IMPORTANT This message will self-destruct.

Just started watching the series, so far all have been pretty good, but this one was especially entertaining. The brain matter removal (I assume that's what it was) made me cringe a bit I admit (awesome). I would have hoped that Raiden would have been more badass then to be captured and tortured by a bunch of crazy farmers though, but the coming back to life thing sort of makes up for that I suppose. 8)

Why did they change the actor of Raiden?

Just because lobotomy is illegal doesn't mean it's no longer practiced. Several hospitals and mental clinics in the US, mostly the Midwest for some odd reason, were shut down last year due to the discovery that patients were having lobotomies performed on them.

So what are they doing with the hammer and chisel? At first I thought they blinded him, but what? Did they lobotomise him?
Report spam or abuse
Apparently, no one told the writers of this series that lobotomies are not performed anymore on the mentally ill (certainly not icepick lobotomies).  Electroconvulsive therapy would be a much more believable choice.

I really do like these videos, but I must say, lobotomies haven't been performed since the 50s.  They thought it was a good idea back then, but there is a plethora of evidence to show the contrary.  If someone is extremely schizophrenic, and no forms of treatments work, the worse thing that doctors may do is similar to a lobotomy, but it is a surgical procedure, usually done by a brain surgeon.  They don't actually remove anything, just burn a part of the brain.  However, even that treatment is extremely rare, and usually isn't done.  Electroshock therapy is still done, but only by the consent of the patient, it is done when the are unconscious, and usually for patients with severe depression and not schizophrenia (I could be mistaken with that last statement).

Anyone who thinks this made a shred of sense doesn't know the first thing about MK. Being a God, Raiden's power is lost upon entering a domain that isn't native to him. This is obviously Earthrealm, so there's no reason he should be powerless at all..."he's in mortal form" no shit, the same is true in every MK game. Gods can't enter the tournament unless they're in mortal form but guess what? They sure as hell aren't powerless. Especially Raiden who's easily one of the most powerful characters in the franchise, if not THE most. And yes, I fully understand that this is someone's personal take on Mortal Kombat, but once you start to shit all over the lore like this, you lose the true fans like me. I won't be watching anymore. I almost left when they cast a senior citizen to play Sonya Blade but this is too far. Can't say I'm surprised.

i agree this was a stupid episode for Raiden, he should have been doing something much more epic then rotting in a mental institution.

idk but its buthol not butthole, but yis the vid  i realize how much thought wasnt put in to the film 
Report spam or abuse
+nxyx9000 you clearly don't understand many things... firstly, he needs to be released from his mortal form, which is why she stabs him. secondly, gods in mk are only at full power in heaven (netherrealm for shinnok), thirdly the mk tournament code of conduct requires him to be in full, underpowered mortal form. finally, he is constantly, and heavily sedated, which, to his mortal form, prevents him from reaching any sort of power level. this was just an entertaining short film anyway, why are you getting so upset about it?
Report spam or abuse
I really hoped this would be a lot better. You're telling me nobody working at the hospital thought this was strange? A man appears in a mental hospital and bleeds blue and enhanced strength. And everyone who works their doesn't sneak any pictures, tweet or put that shit on youtube? And what do the doctors gain from it? The doctors are focused on him sounding/acting crazy, instead of what is really important. There is so much evidence that he is not human and doesn't belong there. Neat idea, but too unbelievable for me. Maybe if it was a in government lab where his inhuman-ness would be actually noticed instead of basically writing it off as psychotic behavior. And the only solution was a lot of drugs, and two lobotomies. Tracy Spiridakos was great though.

Um wouldnt he be blind if someone hammered some in his eye? Also can someone explain and what's that called?

Its a lobotomy, pretty much renders people permanently docile. Was a very common practice in asylums back in the day.

When that doctor was hammering raidens eye, is that some sort of real form of mental treatment ? Really curious as to what he was doing ? Anyone ?

Yes... this is a Lobotomy...
Report spam or abuse
+Tame Palu It's actually illegal, but there are always people still practising it. You insert some sort of "stick" (sorry for my bad English). With it you cut the connection between the Thalamus (known as the Gate of Awareness) and the Frontal Lobe (kind of a motor for a process you are going to do, damage it and you'll have personality change(s) and you won't be able to plan things and get attention Deficit Disorder & memory impairment). So the lobotomy will make you unable to think over the things you're gonna do, you'll personally change yourself and your discernment will be in a bad condition.
