I love Thunder!!! (the raiden looking guy) Carter Wong the actor was/is a actual bad ass. He was the former martial arts instructor to the Royal
Hong Kong Police Department.
"Pway your cawds wite and you rive to tawk about it!!!"
In the directors commentary John Carpenter wanted to give more lines to Thunder but couldn't cause Carter Wong had such a soft and gentle voice that
it sounded wrong, so they just didn't give him many lines.
And YES according to Mortal Combat creator David Boon, Raiden and Shang Tsung were based off of Thunder and Lo Pan.
When Lightning is killed at the end of the movie by Egg Chen (he drops the statue on his head) the lighting arcing around forms the Chinese letter
"carpenter" in honor of John Carpenter the director.
