Ed Boon

Scorpion death

Scorpion's death in Mortal Kombat

Ed Boon (1964- )

Video game programmer, co-creator of the Mortal Kombat series

Film Deaths[]

  • Mortal Kombat (1995) [Scorpion]: Explodes when Linden Ashby throws several spiked shields at his skull as he is about to spit fire at the end of a fight. Ed provided the voice for Scorpion while Chris Casamassa plays him physically, so the death scene is listed under both performers. (Note: Scorpion, being an undead wraith, returns in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation played physically by J.J. Perry, while Ed still provides the voice.)

Video Game Deaths[]

  • Total Carnage (1992; Arcade) [General Akhboob/various characters]: "General Akhboob" is executed in the electric chair. After a few bodily explosions, only his charred broken skeleton remains. This part is a rapid button-pushing section and if the player doesn't make it on time, he survives.
  • Mortal Kombat (1992; Arcade) [Head in Pit]: His severed head is seen impaled on the spike in the Pit Bottom alongside other crew members of the game.
