Bo' Rai Cho is a
drunken master and teaches martial arts to many students
over a span of many years. He enjoys drinking alcoholic beverages, particularly
the rice wine of Earthrealm. He is known to use unorthodox methods of fighting,
including crude tactics such as vomiting and flatulence. The archetype
of the drunken master exemplifies the proverb "appearances can be deceiving".
Outwardly, the fat, drunken, and crass Bo' Rai Cho does not appear to pose
a threat, but he uses this illusion to take advantage of unsuspecting foes.
He is revered for his great knowledge of martial arts and his fighting
skills. When necessary, he is capable of commanding armies.
A native of Outworld,
it has been revealed that Bo' Rai Cho has taught many great warriors. Among
these warriors are Shujinko,
Kang, Li Mei, and Kung
Lao. He did not appear in any games until Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.
Since he is originally from Outworld, he never entered the Mortal Kombat
tournament as it would have meant competing on the behalf of Outworld and
thus the brutal emperor Shao Kahn.
Instead, he used his fighting prowess to train Earthrealm warriors. He
did not become directly involved until the Deadly Alliance of Shang Tsung
and Quan Chi emerged.
Upon hearing that
Liu Kang had been murdered by the Deadly Alliance, he took Kung Lao under
his wing. He then taught Kung Lao the "whirlwind kick" technique so that
the Shaolin monk might slay Shang Tsung. While a group of Earthrealm warriors
prepared for a frontal assault on the Deadly Alliance, Bo' Rai Cho secretly
entered Shang Tsung's palace and escaped with the body of Li Mei. He regrouped
with the other Earthrealm warriors led by Raiden and retreated to safety
rather than join the attack.
