Jax's Journal

28 June, 2014

"So, anyone who reads this might be thinking I am crazy some more times. Well, I know I've warned my superior about that Outworld invasion thing, and he rejected it and the invasion is..... Whatever. But that is past. What I'm going to tell you is that I heard something weird. Not about those crazy things I told you all. But what I told you, was there. Something was much more... "Powerful" back there. Some kind of... gathering of people who wants some kind of power from a mysterious entity. That freaking skull guy, was among those people. Then this Outworld guy that named like a lizard is also there. And even worse. I heard that Kahn guy was there. This is getting crazy. Also I heard even GODS wanted that power. Whatever it is, I must stop the power. Although I may absorb the power of this..... entity, I must stop this. This has to end. Everything is mad because of that entity. Jax Briggs is back in action."


Name :

Reason : Jax was walking in the rival arena. He sees the arena's looks and he thoughts that this is the fact that the entity he heard was not easy to beat. Then, he hears a man's voice, which is Sagat, of he will take the power for himself and also says that he is the only one that is worth of fighting the entity. In a fast motion, Jax warns Sagat about the entity Sagat was talking about and says that it drives everyone mad. Sagat blames Jax that he himself wants the power. Jax then explains furthermore to Sagat that he doesn't want the power. But he wants to stop the entity from making everyone mad. Sagat doesn't listen and does his Tiger Shot. Jax counters with his missile and then the two prepared to fight.

Connection : Both Sagat and Jax has fought with Muay Thai as their fighting style. But, Sagat was a consistent Muay Thai fighter. While Jax in one point replaces Muay Thai with Judo as his fighting style. Both of these characters are also muscular and powerful. But in different ways. Sagat and Jax (in his pre-bionic implant) are both strong. But, when Jax implants his arm, his strength is increased massively. Both of these characters are known to inflict large damage to enemies. Plus, they both "actively" appeared in their franchise's games.


After Jax defeats Polygon Man, Polygon Man is going to transfer his "power" to Jax. But, Jax says to the "dying" Polygon Man that he doesn't want the power. Then, Polygon Man says that why he didn't want the power. Jax replies that the power made everyone mad and makes them fight till death. He also says Polygon Man must keep the power for himself and never "challenges" anyone to fight him again. Polygon Man, hearing this was surprised that Jax lets him "live". Polygon Man feels "awful". Polygon Man says to Jax that he'll promise not to make another "challenge" and thanked Jax for letting him to "live". Then, Jax also says to Polygon Man to "go to another world so he can rest in peace." Then, Polygon Man disappears, one by one, particle by particle, then when he nearly disappeared, he says to Jax once more, "Thank you."


  • Polygon Man : "(Nearly explodes to transfer his power to Jax)"
  • Jax : "No wait!"
  • Polygon Man : "What?"
  • Jax : "I don't want the power."
  • Polygon Man : "Why?"
  • Jax : "This power you have makes everyone mad and makes them dying everywhere! Keep the power for yourself! And NEVER make another so-called challenges to anyone to kill you and gain your power. It's the best gift you have."
  • Polygon Man : "(Shocked) You.... you realy don't want the power? How...... You're the only one that lets me, alive... I feel..... bad... Thank.... you...."
  • Jax : "I recomend you to go to another world where you can find peace and rests without any disturbance. Your power is your best gift and your best indication that you exists."
  • Polygon Man : "(Begins to disappear)"
  • Polygon Man : "(Nearly disappears) Thank you..... (Disappears)"
  • Jax : "Rest in peace, buddy."
