Sheeva is a character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series who made her debut in Mortal Kombat 3.

About Sheeva[]

Sheeva belongs to the ancient race of the Shokan, a race of mighty four armed half Human, half Dragon beings from Outworld that are the archenemies of the Centaurian race. Like all of her race, she possesses a tall, muscular build, and four arms. Notably, Sheeva served as the personal bodyguard of Queen Sindel during Shao Kahn's failed invasion of Earthrealm.

Like Goro and Kintaro before her, Sheeva was motion captured as a stop motion figurine in Mortal Kombat 3 and its updates, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Mortal Kombat Trilogy.

Unlike Goro and Kintaro, Sheeva was never an unplayable sub-boss in the Mortal Kombat series until Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, where she is the last character to be fought before Blaze in a female-only ladder, even though she appears in the middle of another ladder, and has been playable in all of her appearances.
