Shadow Warrior (Classic) Edit
Lo Wang worked as a bodyguard for Zilla Enterprises, a conglomerate that had power over every major industry in Japan.

Master Zilla realized that not having a warrior as powerful as Lo Wang would be dangerous, and sends his creatures after Lo Wang.
Later on in the game, Lo finds that Zilla's men have slain his old master, whom he had sought out to help him. Following his master's dying words, Lo decides to avenge his death. After fighting through Zilla's army, Lo Wang manages to track down Zilla to his secret base inside a volcano. There he fights, Zilla, who piloted a samurai-like war-mech. Lo defeats the mech but before he can finish the job, Zilla escapes, promising a future encounter.
Wanton Destruction Edit
After the events of original Shadow Warrior, Lo Wang decides to visit his relatives in USA. Zilla, still bitter after his defeat, uses this as a chance to kill Wang and sends his forces after him.

As he goes back to his hotel room, Lo Wang finds an old lady waiting for him there, after which it cuts to black.
