Tsung is Shao Kahn's lead Sorcerer. He once fell out of favor with his emperor after failing to win the Earth Realm through Tournament Battle. But the always scheming Shang Tsung is instrumental in Kahn's conquest of Earth. He has now been granted more power than ever.

Auto Combos

1. HK, HK, B+HK 3 hits 19%, 28%, 30%

2. HP, HP, LP, B+HK 4 hits 22%, 31%, 33%

3. HK, HP, HP, LP, B+HK 5 hits 27%, 37%, 39%

Basic Juggles

1. ground eruption, aaHPHP double fireball 7 hits 43%

Advanced Juggles

Ground eruption from full screen, run inbetween the middle and closest eruption fireball so the last hit knocks them back infront of Shang Tsung, and repeat the eruption like this, it is possible to set it up once you get to the corner to send them the other direction however it is an extremely difficult juggle, only real set up would be on a turtle in the corner throwing air projectiles, but that's not going to happen against Shang Tsung.

2. aaLP ~(BL,HK for Kabal Morph) spin, aaHPHP, JK, air fireball, 6 hits 47%

3. (near corner) aaHPHP, double fireball, JK, HK 6 hits 59% (more possible but tricky timing is involved plus just don't use Shang Tsung)

Morph and GE related Combos of various degrees of difficulty:

1. aaDouble Fireball, [Ermac], teleport punch, aaHP, Lift, aaHPHP, aaHP, fireball 8 hits about 47%

2. aaLP,(BL,HK for Kabal morph) spin, aaHP,HP, JK, air fireball (JK on some) (and now you are safe as Kabal to terrorize for about 12 clock seconds) 6 hits 47%-48%

3. GE, [Kabal] aaHPHP, JK, air fireball 7 hits 57%

4. GE, [Jax] aaHPHP, JK, air throw, 7 hits 59%

5. GE, [Nightwolf] Axe X4, aaHP, Axe, aaHP, Shoulder Tackle 11 hits 60% (varies on the characters, for example against Kabal, Sub Stryker or Jax, the full combo isn't that difficult, but against Shang it would be impossible)

6. GE (2 hit), [Sindel] scream, aaHP, scream, aaHP, scream, HK, HP, HP, D+HP, aaHPHP, JK, air fireball 12 hits 69%

7. GE, [Ermac] JK, Lift, aaHPHP, aaHP, fireball (JK on some) 8 hits 67-71%

8. GE, [Liu Kang] aaHPHP, JK, Air Fireball, Dragon Kick 8 hits 70%

9. GE, [Reptile] - as many aaHPHP whiff elbow dashes, as possible on whatever character you're against, for example, GE, [Reptile] aaHPHP, whiff dash X3, uppercut, 10 hits 75%

10. GE(2 hit), [Ermac] aaHP, JK, lift, aaHPHP, aaHP fireball or JK 8 hits 68 - 73%
