Raiden is a character from the Mortal Kombat franchise, a game series which Dashie really likes. In the Mortal Kombat franchise, he is a god and the protector of the Eathrealm, not to mention a very serious character. However, in Dashie's Mortal Kombat skits, he is a very silly character.
As said earlier, he is a main character seen in Dashie's Mortal Kombat Animation Series alongside Baraka. He's friends with Baraka, although he constantly insults him by calling him ugly or causing him to get hurt (usually very badly) by making someone very angry and teleporting away afterwards, leaving Baraka behind him. He's also quick to blame Baraka for bad stuff happening. In the series, he also constantly tries to hit on girls, but he's very unsuccesful every time he tries, having about as much of a chance with women as Baraka.
Although Baraka normally doesn't say much back to Raiden whenever he insults him, in Dashie's Mortal Kombat Rap Battles, Raiden tries to repeatedly beat Baraka in a rap battle, but loses to him every time he tries, causing him to get very salty. In fact, the first episode of the series ends with Raiden "fucking up" Baraka by throwing a giant arcade machine on top of him because he lost. It is often hinted that he and Baraka are in a homosexual relationship or are slightly interested in each other.
- Raiden's name is spelled Raiden in the arcade iterations of the Mortal Kombat games, and both Deadly Alliance and Deception. On the other home versions and in the Mortal Kombat films, comics. and TV series', his name is spelled Rayden.
