The Clay Soldiers are ancient stone statues that are brought to life by the will of a sorcerer. They are enemies featured in Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, and commonly appear in the Living Forest stage.
These forgotten and lifeless statues of royal soldiers that seem to be intricate and interesting archeaological finds, are actually of Outworld design and origin. They were enchanted and brought to life by sorcery. Once they are animated, the Clay Soldiers are simply controlled by any outside force, or even a person with knowledge in or gifted with magic. They will attack anyone and anything that stands in their path.
