The Jinsei is a stage in Mortal Kombat X. The arena is located in China and houses Earth's life force, on the most protected chamber of Raiden's Sky Temple.


Dating the dawn of time, the Jinsei chamber is the most secure and important space on Raiden's Sky Temple, located at one of it's highest buildings and protected by his ward.

On its walls and surroundings, carved by the own hands of the Thunder God himself, stony figures that tell the birth of the planets, from the One Being's split with use of the Kamidogus, through Shinnok's betrayal of his fellow Elder Gods, to the modern heroes. The faces on the walls are indeed the faces of the Gods.

At the heart of the chamber, like gazing upon the Gods themselves, is located a glowing blue liquid, almost like cold lava - Earth's life force, that flows through the planet like blood through arteries (a little biology won't hurt ya). This complex substance has unique properties of healing, capable of restoring anyone's health just by being inside the chamber. When needing rejuvenation of his energies, Raiden usually steps into the floating stones around the ethereal Jinsei and meditates inside its core.

During the events of Mortal Kombat X, it is revealed that Shinnok's plan is to poison the Jinsei, a fact that can occur by the mere touch of the fallen God, due his pure evil essence and corruption. By doing so, Shinnok inverts the Jinsei life properties and inflicts through the planet death and plague, withering all of it's living. It can be reversed, but also corrupts Raiden in the process.


The Jinsei features four arena interactions. From farthest left to right there are:

  • A statue holding a basin of blue liquid that the combatant's head can be forced into and the basin smashes to pieces.
  • Two pots filled with blue liquid on opposite sides of the freaking chamber.
  • A wall that can run up on to escape the right hand corner.


  • Based on spelling, Jinsei can translate to "life" (人生), "this world" (人世), "human nature", "instinct" (both written with the same kanji: 人性), and "benevolent administration" (仁政) in Japanese. Due to it's mystical properties as aforementioned, it can be inferred that the first of these meanings is applicable to this case.
