Jade's Desert, also known as The Desert, is an arena in the Mortal Kombat series. It first appeared in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, and also appeared in Mortal Kombat Trilogy.


In this arena, Cyrax appears in the background struggling to get out of the sand, as seen up close in Cyrax's ending in the original version of MK3, where it is stated that he was stuck in the desert when he didn't receive any missions from the Lin Kuei. This desert is owned by the Edenian warrior Jade herself, though it is almost unclear that this desert is part of Outworld.

In Mortal Kombat (2011), a new 3D design of the Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 arena (now called The Desert) appears. In the background, Cyrax can sometimes be seen struggling in the sand on the left side of the stage. This Cyrax is identical to his original MK3 appearance. Also, a statue of Queen Sindel's head and hand lie in the background revealing that this desert was actually part of Jade's beautiful, ancient homeworld of Edenia. The sand on the ground is now dynamic, as it depresses as players walk and are knocked down. Moves like Sub-Zero's Ground Freeze and Shang Tsung's Ground Fireball are hidden from the sand as well. The Desert plays a pivotal role in the story, as it is revealed to be the Queen's burial ground.


  • Despite being an old arena, Jade's Desert does not have a secret BGM when used at the Arena Select screen as the original arena shared music with the Rooftop and the Bell Tower.
  • It has been rumored that the arena was the background during the fight between Liu Kang and Jade in the second movie, but it is still unclear.
