Terrain Coliseum
Kahn's Arena, also known as Shao Kahn's Arena and Kahn's Coliseum, is located in Outworld outside Shao Kahn's palace fortress where he will watch battles and sometimes participate. There are countless spectators in the coliseum that come to observe the many battles that take place. Their emperor, Shao Kahn, observes the fights from his throne and enjoys the ensuing battles.


In Mortal Kombat II, Sonya Blade and Kano were held in Kahn's Arena as prisoners forced to observe the vicious battles that took place. Kahn's Arena also reappeared in Mortal Kombat Trilogy; however, Sonya and Kano were removed from the background as both characters were playable.

In Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks, Kahn's Arena returns and serves as the stage for the final battles of the game against Shang Tsung, Kintaro, and Shao Kahn. The arena is depicted slightly different; the arena is no longer a walkway, but an elevated circular platform. Kano and Sonya still appeared chained up in the background; however, if the player engages in a secret boss battle with Kano, neither can be seen in the final fights (with Sonya being freed and Kano being dismembered).

In Mortal Kombat (2011), Kahn's Arena was renamed to "Kahn's Coliseum". Five characters can be randomly shown to be chained in the background - Kira, Li Mei, Tanya, Kitana and Skarlet. The emperor is now fully animated, mocking the fighters during the fight. In addition, this version is shown to have a dirt floor instead of a concrete linear pathway used for fighting, a much larger viewing audience for the width of the arena's spectacular and violent battles with a Tormentor fending off tamers in the background. This stage serves as the last arena in the "Mortal Kombat II" retelling and the final stage in the arcade ladder with the battle with Shao Kahn.


  • In MK 2011, if Kitana and Skarlet are both used in Tag Ladder, Tanya will still be present taking Kitana's side, but no one will take Skarlet's place. Kira is, however, seen in the PlayStation Vita version.
  • This stage makes a cameo appearance with Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Shao Kahn in another NetherRealm Studios game, Injustice: Gods Among Us.
