Combat Achievements/Feats:

At the time of Mortal Kombat 9, after travelling to Outworld with Smoke, Sub-Zero takes on and defeats Cyrax, Ermac, Reptile and Scorpion, with whom he trades victory and defeat with several times.

After being recaptured and having his enslaving protocols erased, the reformed Cyber Sub-Zero defeats Sektor, one shots Kano, defeats Kintaro and Goro at once, bests Ermac again, and defeats his resurrected brother, Noob Saibot.

Sub-Zero and Scorpion engage in combat a second time. At the start, Sub-Zero is possessed by the demon of the Kamidogu dagger, and his power is amplified. After Takeda manages to steal the dagger, Sub-Zero is freed and continues to contend with the now enraged Scorpion, who even admits that Sub-Zero's injuries were a contributing factor to his defeat. Side note, after scan number 13(Scorpion breaking out of ice), the fight takes place off panel for an additional 7-9 pages.

No Caption Provided

After discovering the cyber Lin Kuei's hidden underground base, Sub-Zero infiltrates the facility and defeats several Lin Kuei cyborgs, before being captured, possibly so he can be given a confrontation with Sektor.

Sub-Zero defeats Sektor for good.

Sub-Zero and Scorpion fight again, this time after a misunderstanding with Sub-Zero initially getting hit by an ice blast from Frost (which was aimed at Scorpion), and attempting to reason with Scorpion.

Now the Grand Master of the reformed Lin Kuei, Sub-Zero defeats Cassie Cage, Takeda Takahashi, Jacqui Briggs and Kung Jin, revealing afterwards that the fight was a simple training exercise, of which they were unaware, implying that he may have possibly been holding back.

And there you have it. Respect the Lin Kuei Grand Master!
