Sub-Zero vs Elsa in an Arctic Showdown

Sub-Zero vs Elsa … Who would win?

Ever since Disney’s hit “Frozen” came to the big screen many moons ago, we asked for this.

Before I start talking about the fight, let’s talk about the competitors:




Queen Elsa of Arendelle (also known as the Snow Queen) is the deuteragonist of Disney‘s 2013 animated feature film Frozen. She is the firstborn daughter of former monarchs King Agnarr and Queen Iduna, older sister of Princess Anna, and the contemporary ruler of Arendelle. Her powers over ice and snow ultimately led her to become the Snow Queen at adulthood.

Elsa possesses the magical ability to conjure and manipulate ice and snow. With her abilities, Elsa can manifest and shape various structures made of ice and snow, or cold phenomena from snow flurries to blizzards.


Most of her powers are unleashed via her hands and controlled by her emotions. If she is happy and at peace, she can control them better. When Elsa is angry, afraid or stressed, she will lose control and cause great harm to those around her. Near the end of Frozen, she has complete control over her powers.

In the movie, Elsa was able to turn the entire castle’s ballroom into a winter wonderland. She is capable of creating enchanted snowmen (both large and small), ice structures such as her ice palace, deadly blizzards, and more. She can move ice structures at will. It also appears that her control extends to almost all forms of winter weather, as she was able to create a snow cloud for Olaf, and manipulate wind streams to some degree.

Now let’s talk about the cold one from Mortal Kombat … Sub-Zero.


Kuai Liang (奎良 or 快涼), also known as Sub-Zero (絶対零度, “Absolute zero”)  formerly known as Tundra and the cyborg LK-52O, is a Lin Kuei assassin in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. He is the younger brother of Bi-Han, who was the original Sub-Zero in the first Mortal Kombat game. The younger Sub-Zero made his debut in Mortal Kombat II.

Both descended from Cryomancers, an Outworld race possessing the ability to generate and control the powers of ice. However, they were born in Earthrealm and only the younger Sub-Zero would discover his heritage. Kuai Liang bears a scar on his right eye which he received between the events of MK3. However, as seen in Deception, the scar has faded away. This may have been caused by the Dragon Medallion‘s power.


Having descended from a race of Outworld inhabitants known as Cryomancers, Sub-Zero has the innate ability to control ice in many forms. Throughout the span of the series, Sub-Zero’s powers have continued to evolve. Aside from flash-freezing opponents, Sub-Zero also has the ability to instantly conjure up an ice statue of himself to act as both a scapegoat and a ‘landmine’ of sorts as any who touch it instantly flash freeze.


Since having taken possession of the Dragon Medallion, the scope of Sub-Zero’s powers and abilities has increased significantly. As a member of the Lin Kuei, Sub-Zero has attained a great degree of skill in many forms of hand-to-hand combat. The Dragon Medallion and his ancestral armor increased and amplified his martial arts and ice-related abilities, as shown in his Deception Arcade ending. Throughout the Mortal Kombat series, Sub-Zero’s abilities have grown more powerful; he can even transform his body into a liquefied state, solid state or transform his body into solid ice at will.

The Fight.

It takes place in a Taiga (or a snow forest) Let’s say a netrual place … Canada.


There can be no shots to the face (Yeah Sub-Zero, I’m looking at you!) and since Sub-Zero is a highly skilled assassin, he is not allowed to use any outside weapons.

Let the fight begin!

Sub-Zero is slowly walking around the forest until he hears a noise. He looks up a tree to see only a white squirrel (Yes, a white squirrel … this is my story).

He creates an ice dagger to throw at the white squirrel to scare it away. This allows Elsa to attack from behind with a huge snowball to the back of Sub-Zero. Sub-Zero turns around only to see that no one is there. Sub-Zero creates four ice walls around him in an attempt to tease Elsa. This is his way to see how strong Elsa can be. Is she able to tear down the four walls?


Elsa creates a snow monster to tear down the walls. She stands off to the side to watch Sub-Zero take on the snow monster. Sub-Zero slides underneath the snow monster hitting him with an ice beam in the process. The ice beam freezes the snow monster.

Sub-zero creates an ice sledgehammer then hits the snow monster to shatter him in pieces. Elsa is not pleased. She jumps in mid air to throw snow blades at Sub-Zero. He blocks the snow blades by creating an ice shield then kicks through the ice shield to take Elsa by surprise. He tackles Elsa to the ground only to let her up. Sub-Zero looks at her then gives the “continue” symbol with his hand.


With all her heart, Elsa creates a strong blizzard to blow Sub-Zero away. Sub-Zero is one step ahead as he creates an ice version of himself to take his place. He jumps into the trees to escape. Elsa has no idea where he is. Elsa slowly looks around to find where he is but right when she spots him … it’s too late.

Sub-Zero stabs Elsa in the heart with an ice dagger then he LET IT GO! (You get what I did there)

Flawless Victory!
