I'm thinking over and over about the info we have been given about Kronika.
It bugs me that she wanted Shinnok to be the ultimate victor. What would she achieve? He would totally merge the realms and the One Being would devour the Elder Gods.
And if she wants to reset time, well, that would only point towards the beggining of everything. Everytime I overthink about this I believe boss Kronika will be One Being something, and that would absolutely fit the "boss of bosses" thing.
But I'm still wondering, despite the lack of info: what woudl she gain with Shinnok winning? There's got to be something more than "balance of good and evil", since Shinnok winning would be end of all things.
Also, bringing back again the truth of death. Killing everybody might have a different perspective now. Because that was his plan, the reality to have an end. With this little information, it seems she's going to just continue his plan, like they were both thinking the same all the time.
I want to bad to play this story lol
It is not about Shinnok being the ultimate Victor. The original Timeline history, was supposed to be the OG one. It was supposed to be the correct one.
It is not that Kronika came in just for Shinnok. She came, cause Shinnok was the last straw for her. Shao Kahn wasn't supposed to die either, but because he did, Shinnok was supposed to balance everything out and bring the intended outcome. But Raiden stopped that too. So now she is pissed.
One Being for her is just another event. One Being doesn't mean destruction of time.
To support this theory, you can also listen to Sonya's and Geras conversation. According to him, Cassie defies Fate. In original timeline Sonya and Cage never got together and Casie was never born, hence she is an anomaly that is not supposed to exist in the first place.
Also another reason why Kronika didn't come sooner, is that Raiden might have tricked her with "He must win". He was refering to Shao Kahn. And it seems that fit the original bill, right? Shao Kahn defeats Raiden and wins. And that pretty much happened, except Elder Gods intervened at the very last second. So Kronika is now sitting and waiting for the Armageddon. Sipping her Time Tea or something and looks at her watch only to see that Armageddon is past due. She checks the timeline and sees Shao Kahn dead, Shinnok beheaded and literally goes WTF.
And the balance she speaks about... original sides of Light and Darkness are a mess. Some fighters are now on the wrong side, or they are simply dead.
Seriously the more you compare original timeline with new one... no wonder Kronika is flipping tables everywhere.
