Johnny Cage: DIY Cosplay Guide

Johnny Cage is a washed up action movie star turned deadly tournament fighter in the Mortal Kombat video game series. Throughout the series and in the live-action film of the same name, Johnny Cage is depicted as your standard action star of the 1990s era. In fact, he was modeled after Jean-Claude Van Damme’s character in the movie Bloodsport…

In the original Mortal Kombat game Cage wears an outfit consisting of black shorts with a red sash and black shoes. By the second entry in the series, Cage updates his look to include black pants with a blue sash, blue shin guards and white shoes. Along the way, Cage adds to his ensemble a belt with his last name emblazoned in gold and other 90s era accessories.

About Johnny Cage

In the Mortal Kombat series, Johnny Cage is a has-been action movie star who enters the Mortal Kombat tournament in order to prove himself to skeptical film critics and audiences that he was a legitimate fighter and not just another actor with a pretty face.

While Cage is seen as a bit of an arrogant airhead, his skills as a fighter cannot be questioned. He is a master of numerous martial arts and possesses superhuman powers as a result of his lineage from a Mediterranean cult in which warriors were bred for the gods. He has mastered a series of devastating moves, such as the shadow kick and uppercut. As with other MK fighters, when Cage gets his opponent out he caps it off with a repulsive finishing move. One of Johnny’s favorites is a decapitating uppercut which he calls a ‘head pop’… How quaint!
