Several years after being killed by Sub-Zero. Hanzo came back, but in the form of a nether-born assassin known as Scorpion. Comsumed with extreme vengence towards the Lin Kuei assassin, he enters the 10th Generation Mortal Kombat tournament. Knowing that Sub-Zero will be there, this is his chance to act revenge. As Liu Kang fights the tournament's originator Shang Tsung, Scorpion eventually catches up with Sub-Zero and fights him. This time, Scorpion avenges his own death by defeating and eliminating the assassin. He would soon disappear thereafter.

Scorpion would remain in hiding in the Netherealm for the next few months. Then, as he receives word that Sub-Zero has returned, he comes back to Earthrealm to fight and eliminate the assassin again (and to make sure that he does not return). Scorpion sensed Sub-Zero's presence which led Scorpion to Outworld. As he ventures Outworld to search for Sub-Zero he fights numerous monsters. He would eventually meet up with Sub-Zero again. But when he realizes that Sub-Zero spared his defeated opponent, he realizes that this is a different Sub-Zero, the younger brother of the original Lin Kuei assassin. Now feeling guilt for killing his older brother, Scorpion decides to aid the ninja assassin in his quest to assassinate Shang Tsung by protecting him from the other fighters.
 Mortal Kombat 3
As the Empror of Outworld Shao Kahn breaks the sacred rules of Mortal Kombat and invade Earthrealm, Scorpion would be held in the Netherealm as Kahn was merging Earthrealm with Outworld. But as Kahn's forces were being defeated by the Earthrealm warriors, this loosened the grip that Kahn had on Earthrealm and end his occupation on the Netherealm, allowing Scorpion to roam Earthrealm once again. Though not the warrior who would take sides normally. But as Kahn's influence on the Netherealm had a negative effect, Scorpion would side with the Earthealm warriors and aid them in their final battle with Kahn. As Liu Kang defeats Kahn himself and Earthrealm restored, Scorpion ventures back to the Netherealm.
 Mortal Kombat 4
Scorpion would be busy in the Netherealm as he discovers Quan Chi trying to escape and even released Shinnok from his prison developed by the elder gods. Then, Quan Chi tells him (falsely) about the death of his not only his clan, but his family (a wife and a child) were eliminated by the Lin Kuei and Sub-Zero. Now, Scorpion develops another hatred to the young Sub-Zero and is once again out for revenge. He sides with both Quan Chi and Shinnok as they try to eliminate the Earthrealm warriors. Scorpion eventually finds Sub-Zero and fights him, and he eventually defeats him. As Sub-Zero lays on the ground (barely contious) Scorpion tells Sub-Zero on how he killed his family and clan. But Sub-Zero preceeded to tell him that he was right about the Lin Kuei eliminating the Shirai Ryu, but he was not responsible for the murder of his family. As Scorpion (not believing what Sub-Zero had said about his family) was about to kill Sub-Zero, Quan Chi appears and then told him the ugly truth. Sub-Zero was right about his family, it was in fact Quan Chi himself that murdered Scorpion's family. With fury, Scorpion drags Quan Chi back into the Netherealm, where he fights Quan Chi. Whether Scorpion defeats Quan Chi or not is still undetermined.

Though, Scorpion did try to chase after Quan Chi, but could not catch up to him. Though he would continue his search for Quan Chi until he finally met up with him at Shang Tsung's palace. But once again he would fight with Drahmin and Moloch. Quan Chi used this distraction to escape from Scorpion once again. But, Scorpion would lose to both Drahmin and Moloch and by the order of Quan Chi, they threw Scorpion into the Soulnado, where they hope that would kill Scorpion.

The elder gods told Scorpion about Liu Kang's death at the hands of the Deadly Alliance, Raiden's sacrfice in an attempt to elminate Onaga, and Onaga's plans to conquer the realms. Because they need his help, they bestow upon Scorpion their powers, making him "Champion of the Elder Gods". The elder gods tell Scorpion to stop Onaga at all costs. But, he would fight with Shujinko and would be defeated. This is when he relinquish his newly bestowed title and prepair for the final battle.

As he finds Sub-Zero, Liu Kang (who was finding the assassin) steps in and allows Sub-Zero to escape and fights Scorpion in Sub-Zero's stead. Though Scorpion would lose to Liu Kang, his fight with the shaolin monk has blanketed Scorpion with the kombat rage, and before he knew it he was in the Batcave and mistakens Batman for Sub-Zero (possibly due to Scorpion being under the influence of kombat rage) and fights batman, who defeats him. Batman further examines Scorpion and discovers that he is not human, then as Batman discovers another energy anomoly similar to Scorpion, he takes the subdued Scorpion for a ride in his Batmobile. But during Batman's fight with both The Joker and Liu Kang, Scorpion regains contiousness and escapes to the netherealm. As the universe merging continues, he draws Sub-Zero to the Netherealm and fights him. But little did both Scorpion and Sub-Zero knew that their fight hastened the merging of the 2 universes and it was powerful enough to set Quan Chi free. Then, Quan Chi tells Scorpion to find Kitana who has tried to defeat Dark Kahn. As Scorpion searches for Kitana, he fights with The Joker. He then moves onto Themyscira, where he finds Wonder Woman who says she is a princess herself, but fights her as well. After defeating the Queen of Adventure, he heads to Metroplois where is found by Superman, as Superman discovers Scorpion's true origins (not being human and having a basis in magic) he tries to defend himself against Scorpion, but Scorpion's magic proved too much for the Man of Steel. Scorpion eventually finds Kitana in Metroplois, though Kitana is heavily influenced by the kombat rage, she is defeated. As Quan Chi puts Kitana under a spell which can conlfict with the rage, he takes her to Raiden's Sky Temple. Then, as he discovers that rivals must work together to fight against the DC Universe, he teams up with Sub-Zero. They both head to the Wu-Shi Acadamy, they discover Lex Luthor and Catwoman. But it would be Lex that would fight the ninja assassins. As Scorpion fights Lex, he would lose to the encentric millionaire. They head back to Raiden's Sky Temple and as the rest of the wariors gather, they head for Outworld, where it is being torn aprt by the universes merging. As Dark Kahn appears, the warriors and the heroes charge at each other. Scorpion would fight The Flash but would fall to another DC Universe hero soon thereafter.

But as Quan Chi appears and tells Scorpion to finish Bi-Han, Scorpion refuses at first, but as Quan Chi reveals to him what he thinks Bi-Han did which is kill his family and clan, an injured Bi-Han says that he wasn't responsible for the killing of his family, despite this Scorpion's urge to kill has been re-energized and then uses his skull flame fatality on Bi-Han, Scorpion re-appears in Shang Tsung's throne room with the sine and skull of Bi-Han and then returns to the Netherealm. Scorpion will re-appear in the courtyard along with Quan Chi to fight Liu Kang, but the 2 would lose to the determined Shaolin Monk who will go on and win the tournament, granting safety for Earthrealm. Scorpion will re-appear at Shao Kahn's proposed tournament in Outworld to fight Kuai Liang (the new Sub-Zero) after knowing that Kuai Liang's last fight with Reptile didn't end in Reptile's death, and he knew it wasn't the same Sub-Zero. Nevertheless, Scorpion decrees that he'll die as his older brother did, but Scorpion would lose, but as soon as Kuai Liang was to deliver the final blow to Scorpion, the Cybernized Lin Kuei came to take Kuai Liang away.

The Shirai-Ryu has attacked the Special Forces base as they captured Quan Chi. Though, Sonya tries to keep Scorpion from killing Quan Chi as the sorcerer is the only being that can restore their former Earthrealm warriors who are still under his control, but despite this, Scorpion gets his revenge by killing the Netherealm sorcerer.
