Nightwolf is a Native American historian, shaman and a hero from the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games.
Nightwolf is completely in tune with everything spiritual, being a shaman and can create a bow and arrow made of spirit energy to use as a projectile attack against his foes. He also wields a pair of tomahawks that he can charge with etheral green flame and is able to summon a bolt of lightning from the sky, charge forward and knock his opponent back, and purify anyone of their sins. Nightwolf also has a close bond (and a fitting one considering his name) with wolves and is able to speak to them.
- Nightwolf appears in Armageddon's opening, fighting Sheeva along with Ermac in their attempts to climb up the pyramid, but they were unable to get past her, until Kenshi stabbed her in the stomach.
- Nightwofl was a winning character in a Create-A-Character held by Midway after the release of Mortal Kombat II, along with Kurtis Stryker and Kabal.
