Famous quote: Liu Kang clearly says “Wululululululu!” when performing his Flying Bicycle Kick in Mortal Kombat II.
Signature moves: Flying Kick, Dragon Fire, Flying Bicycle Kick.
Most Lee-like moment: We’re going to have to go with Liu Kang’s winning pose in the Test Your Might minigame from the first Mortal Kombat. He’s a dead ringer for Bruce Lee from Way of the Dragon.

Know your Lee: Ho Sung Pak, the actor who played Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat, also starred as Superstar, the cocky Kung Fu fighter in WMAC Masters. The show first aired in 1995 and featured choreographed martial arts battles with lots of staged behind-the-scenes drama. The second (and last) season of WMAC Masters was hosted by Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee.
