"Vengeance will be MINE!"
― Scorpion, vowing revenge. (Mortal Kombat 2011)

The power to have the traits and powers of a revenant. Variation of Spirit Physiology, Ghost Physiology and Undead Physiology.

Also Called

  • Revenant Mimicry
  • Vengeful Ghost/Soul/Spirit/Corpse Physiology


The user either is or can become a revenant, a visible ghost or animated corpse that was believed to return from the grave to terrorize the living. In most cases, revenants come back from the grave for revenge on those who wronged or even killed them, or to harass their families or friends. Revenants are often associated with spreading disease among the living, or even sucking the blood of the living, much like vampires.

It should be noted that revenants are sometimes ghosts or spirits, and other times zombies.




  • Normal, Flawless, to Absolute Restoration, and even Resurrection can restore Revenants back to being what race they are formerly.
  • Exhumation, decapitation, and removal of the heart can kill the user.
  • May require a tether/link binding them to the living world.
    • Users of Resurrection, in conjunction with reviving them, this will result in the tether being destabilized and then abolished, thus ending their cycle of reanimations, and making them alive and mortal again.
