Nightwolf has trained hard for this battle: finally he faces Shao Kahn and emerges victorious. When the Earth returns to its normal state, Nightwolf peacefully regains the lands his Native-American people lost over many years. They establish their own proud nation and soon become the great leaders of Earth.
