Also featuring is Inner Sanctum in the "centerfield", a secret chamber protected by 6 magic runes that covers it, where Quan Chi leaves his body, periodically charging as we as restoring his magic powers or astroprojecting his own consciousness to other planes of existence.

The center ring rests above a network of lasers in the form of a spider-web pattern which can shift into a perfect square grid when the opponent is being knocked off the ring and gets sliced into burning pieces, a deathtrap fit for this evil sorcerer.

Quan Chi's Fortress must have been constructed long before or after the formation of the Deadly Alliance.

TV Appearance

Quan Chi's Palace, another lair of the demon sorcerer Quan Chi within Outworld in Mortal Kombat: Conquest.

The demon sorcerer Quan Chi has another, yet hidden lair called Quan Chi's Palace in Outworld, secretly built and away from prying eyes, and it first appeared in the 9th episode "Quan Chi" of the television show Mortal Kombat: Conquest and it was featured throughout the entire series. It is somewhat a regal yet, evil-looking, dome-like palace structure with a yin-yang emblem above its front doors, built inside a mountainside with 5 claw-like rocky pillars over it.



  • Quan Chi's Throne should have made a reappearance at Quan Chi's Fortress in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance as the background furniture in front of his inner sanctum for the sorcerer's stronghold. But instead for some reasons, it was put into the game's production and it ended up as the kontent picture in Deadly Alliance's own Krypt and Extras gallery.
    • It was not until it made an alternative appearance as a seemingly-obsidian leather throne within Quan Chi's Fortress in the Story mode of Mortal Kombat X.
  • The Shoal of Quan Chi

    Within Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance's Krypt and Extras kontent special features, there was a concept art based on the exterior of Quan Chi's Fortress, but with another name for the villain's own citadel called "Shoal of Quan Chi" (or "Quan Chi's Shoal"): the sorcerer's lair is shown built on a shoal. On the Shoal lies a balcony-like road complete with a courtyard, riddled with huge stone statue heads bearing the image of the sorcerer's face, built around the water and leads directly to the entrance of the fortress where Quan Chi resides.
