Jataaka is one of the sub-bosses in the Pyramid of Shinnok in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero and a member of the Brotherhood of Shadows. She is one of three assassins serving under Quan Chi and Shinnok, along with Sareena and Kia. They each protected a crystal which, when combined together, allowed access to a teleportation device that sent the elder Sub-Zero to Quan Chi's throne room. Judging from Sareena's story, she also may be a demon from the Netherrealm using Quan Chi's magic to sustain her attractive human form. Jataaka fights using a laser sword from which she can fire blue bolts of energy. She was defeated by the elder Sub-Zero. Jataaka is played by Rachel Herbert in-game and by fitness instructor Erica Grace during the full motion videos.
Jataaka, along with Sareena and Kia, makes a reappearance in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon's Konquest mode, still serving Quan Chi. Together, they battle Taven in the Red Dragon's lair, but are defeated.
The actress who performed Jataaka in the cutscenes movies is a different actress of the one who was digitized.
