Kung Lao is a close friend of the series' protagonist Liu Kang and together they were the main characters of the spin-off game Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks.

As stated in Kung Lao's bio card that after the first Mortal Kombat game, the creators wanted a monk character other than Liu Kang. According to Mortal Kombat co-creator John Tobias, Kung Lao's hat was inspired by the 1964 James Bond movie Goldfinger, in which a villain Oddjob threw his special derby hat as a deadly weapon.
