Hanzo Hasashi (Ian Anthony Dale), General of the Shirai Ryu clan, prepares for the coming of the Shogun of Kumamoto Castle. When he is informed that the Shogun has arrived early, he immediately prepares for a rendezvous with him. He dons the mask and weapons of his alter-ego: Scorpion. While on his way, he encounters his arch-nemesis Sub Zero (Kevan Ohtsji). At that moment it becomes clear that the early arrival of the shogun was an elaborate ruse.
