Mortal Kombat
Shadow of the Netherrealm. In life, Noob Saibot was known as Sub-Zero. Unjustly murdered by Scorpion, he was resurrected by Quan Chi and granted power over darkness, but as Quan Chi’s slave. Now, Quan Chi is dead. Noob Saibot is finally free to reclaim the honor that was stolen from him.
Kombat Rebooted
Noob Saibot's origins are unknown, but he is likely a revenant: a fallen warrior resurrected by the Netherrealm sorcerer Quan Chi to fulfill a dark objective. Noob has been assigned to aid Shao Kahn in his acquisition of Earthrealm. A faithful servant and a recent addition to the Brotherhood of Shadow, he will obey his master, Quan Chi, and complete his mission. But he is biding his time. Noob Saibot has a dark objective of his own.
Tournament Edition
Still under orders from Shao Kahn, Noob Saibot was commanded by the emperor to eliminate any groups or individuals whose power might pose a threat to Shao Kahn's rule in Outworld. Many would-be leaders have been slain by the dark ninja, but his current target will be his most challenging.
The Wrath of Kahn
Noob Saibot emerges from the darkest region of reality - a region known as the Netherrealm. He belongs to a group called the Brothers of the Shadow, and worships an evil and mysterious fallen Elder God. His mission is to spy the events taking place in the battle between the realms and report back to his enigmatic leaders.
A New Dimension of Kombat
Noob returns to serve under Shinnok again after aiding the Earth warriors to overthrow Shao Kahn's minion. After a thought successful extermination of Shao Kahn, Noob returns again to serve as a general in Shinnok's army of darkness.
MK Trilogy Endings
At first a passive observer, Noob Saibot would soon receive order to side with the evil emperor Shao Kahn. Saibot's leaders in the Netherealm want him to join Kahn's battle to gain his trust and gain entrance into the Earth Realm. When Kahn drops his guard, Noob Saibot is ordered to attack. With both the Earth Realm and the Outworld's emperor defeated, the fallen Elder God known as Shinnok can take both realms and gain the power he needs to strike back at the Elder Gods who banished him into the Netherealm.
Deadly Alliance
Return of the Dragon King
"Under Shao Kahn's rule, I hunted enemies of his throne. As a member of the Brotherhood of the Shadow, I did Quan Chi's bidding. All the while serving Shinnok, Lord of the Netherealm, as well. Now all my masters are gone; I am at long last free to pursue my own destiny. Outworld is where I will begin my ascension to power. Now is the time to forge a legion of assassins loyal only to Noob Saibot.

I found my first "ally" in the abandoned fortress of Shao Kahn. Deep in the labyrinth of torture chambers and prison cells the cyborg ninja Smoke, lay inoperative. A war trophy of the late Emperor, Smoke had lain there since the invasion of Earthrealm. It did not take long for me to reactivate his nanotechnology, which reshaped and repaired his artificial body." -Noob Saibot
Noob / Smoke's Mortal Kombat Deception ending reveals he is the reincarnation of the elder Sub Zero.
MK Armageddon Endings
With a flash, Blaze was defeated, and Noob Saibot found he was no longer standing atop the ancient pyramid, but in the center of a darkened arena.

From the shadows, a figure slowly emerged. It was Sub-Zero, the warrior Noob had been before being slain by Scorpion.

Sub-Zero had come to regain control of their divided soul. The two clashed, but neither could best the other. In the end, what emerged was a being that was neither Noob Saibot nor Sub-Zero, but something new...

Fun Facts
Cage Conspiracy
After Mortal Kombat 2, Daniel Pesina (who played Johnny Cage and the male ninjas) used his Johnny Cage likeness to endorse some non-MK products including sports supplements, workout videos, and even Bloodstorm, another particularly violent fighting game. The subsequent controversy and falling out was supposedly a factor in both Johnny Cage (and the ninjas) absence in Mortal Kombat 3.
The grim undead look given to Havik was originally going to be yet another new look for Noob Saibot.
yM owT sdaD
For the three or four of you who haven't got it yet, Noob Saibot's name comes from the reverse of Mortal Kombat series creators Ed Boon, and John Tobias' last names.
Forgotten Frost
Though his chilly persona is no more, at least as of Mortal Kombat 4, Noob could still use his ice powers to finish off an opponent.
