Stryker was introduced in Mortal Kombat 3 as a somewhat stout-looking man sporting a very urban design with a white-blue shirt, combat boots, gunbelt, black police pants, and a backwards cap. However, his appearance changed in Armageddon into a more serious-looking and modernized policeman. His appearance has once again changed in the 2011 game with a black S.W.A.T cap, and an outfit similar to that of his UMK3 appearance. Originally described as being a leader of the Special Riot Control division in the New York City Police Department, he employs modern weaponry such as guns, explosives, firearms, tasers, and nightsticks in battle, making him a force that is not to be underestimated. He is seen as the first person to run towards the pyramid in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.
In the 2011 Mortal Kombat game, Stryker was killed by Sindel and he became an undead slave to Quan Chi. After becoming an undead slave to Quan Chi, Stryker would commit serious and impossible crimes. However, the British Human-Edenian Lieutenant Adam Legend broke the spell on Stryker and brought him back to his senses, after restoring him back to normal, later he and Adam fight skeletal warriors summoned by Quan Chi, Adam restores Kabal, and after restoring him, Adam and Stryker were attacked by angry thugs. Kabal scares them off by removing his mask and making his horribly disfigured face and making a horrific scream at the thugs, creating a terrifying sight. This scared the thugs away, however, it also frightens Adam and Stryker as well. Later, Stryker takes Adam to a nearby coffee shop, and they talk about "The Caging" a horror movie starring Johnny Cage. Later, Stryker helps Adam save Earthrealm and Edenia. In Shao Kahn's furnace fun, Adam temporarily turns into a copy of Stryker as part of a challenge against Kano, this disturbed Stryker greatly. Later after the final battle, Stryker gets a police dog named Ace.
