Despite his name, Scorpion falls far more accurately into the Sagittarius sign — November 22 and December 21 — than that of Scorpio. At first, the pairing might seem odd. Isn’t Scorpion a killer driven by little more than revenge? Well, that’s certainly how his story starts, but there’s far more to the fiery ninja than his various vendettas. The sad truth of Scorpion is that he spends much of the early “Mortal Kombat” story being manipulated by various nefarious forces, like Netherrealm’s evil sorcerer Quan Chi. Scorpion is lied to time and time again, finally realizing the deceptions put upon him and find his own meaning in life. While not always a hero, Scorpion ultimately becomes a champion for good, and his finest moments in the “Mortal Kombat” universe show him keeping the powers of darkness at bay.
When it comes to Sagittarius wanderlust, no one is more guilty than a literal wayward soul. Scorpion has visited many different realms throughout the “MK” movies and games, learning new abilities and growing in wisdom along the way. This is shown beautifully in the 2021 “Mortal Kombat” movie, in which, after centuries of torment in the fires of the Netherrealm, Scorpion rises with those same fires under his control. Who other than a Sagittarius could travel to hell itself, only to learn something productive from the experience? Of course, there should then be no doubt that the yellow-clad warrior is a fire sign.
