|~ Lady Kronika about the Crown of Kronika.|
The Crown of Kronika, also known as Kronika's Crown is a powerful ancient crown belonged to its divine creator Lady Kronika, the Keeper of Time and Architect of History. It made its debut appearance in the 2019 fighting videogame Mortal Kombat 11.
This treasure in its full divine semblance is a tiara-like headband with ghost-white and gold design.
As with the Hourglass within her care and at her Keep within the "sacred" Isle of Kronika where it was first created alongside the magical Amulet of Kronika, the "holy" crown serves as the great symbol of the cold Kronika's dominion over time and history, and thus arguably has the same powers including the power of Timecraft with the former albeit in superior scale.
As its wielder, Kronika, being a member of the obscure race of monstrous immortals known as the Titans who predates and rivals the Elder Gods themselves, this artifact is plausibly very ancient, yet possesses a tremendous magic, arguably more than both the malevolent Lord Shinnok's rubric Amulet and the virtuous Lady Cetrion's namesake Amulet as well as the 5 other Elder Gods' 7 sacred Kamidogu relics.
In Aftermath, the Crown of Kronika is revealed to be the very vital part of the Hourglass as opposed of mere amplifier; when Liu Kang destroyed it by mistake when defeating its namesake owner, that threatened to destroy the latter along with all realities. Traveling back in time to retrieve the crown became the quest of past Nightwolf, Fujin, Fire God Liu Kang, and their reluctant ally Shang Tsung. Despite Shang Tsung's ensuing betrayal, Liu Kang had foreseen this and personally confronted his nemesis knowing that he can overcome the latter's power boost from the Crown since he had defeated Kronika at her full strength prior. It was during the quest the Crown of Kronika indeed Shang Tsung's design all along, explaining the evil sorcerer's familiarity and proficiency with it as much as Kronika herself, if not more.
|“||Kronika: Have you wondered why Shang Tsung knows so much about my Crown?
Raiden: Because he did your bidding, gathering souls to fuel it.
Kronika: Shang Tsung is far too modest. The Crown IS his design. No one, save me, knows more about its power.
