Motaro is a centaur-like creature from the Mortal Kombat video game franchise and features in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation as one of Shao Kahn's lieutenants. He is portrayed by former American Gladiators star Deron McBee.
In the film, Motaro is a proud and boastful warrior who competes with Shao Kahn's other lieutenants over how many humans they can slay. He joins Kahn, Sindel and Ermac during the film's final battle, taking on the cybernetically modified Jax Briggs. He severely damages Jax's strength-enhancing armatures, but Jax removes them and realises he can fight just fine without them. With his confidence restored, Jax easily manages to defeat Motaro.
