In the mid-nineties, when Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter were all the rage, both got short-lived animated shows. Mortal Kombat’s, dubbed Defenders of the Realm in the US and, on these shores, simply Mortal Kombat: The Animated Series, lasted just one season before the plug was pulled.
But what a season!
Defenders of the Realm starred a number of Mortal Kombat characters, such as Raiden, Lui Kang and Sub-Zero. It also starred Nightwolf, and gave him an actual wolf sidekick called Kiba.
