Tetsurri was a malevolent ancient tyrant and former ruler of Zaterra though his name was mentioned by Raiden as a forgotten legend in Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm.

Long ago, the ancient Realm of Zaterra was ruled over by a patriarch, a wicked warlord by the name Tetsurri who was born with a cruel nature. He made the entire Saurian kingdom into a desolate world under his rule. After his death, his own beating heart filled with such negative energy that it crystallized into a ruby-like demon stone, hence the name Gem of Tetsurri. The Gem became a legend to the point where Raiden believed it was a myth. The Gem of Tetsurri was an ancient artifact in the form of a ruby gem, yet it is a crystalized heart organ, belonging to a long dead, evil warlord from Zaterra named Tetsurri. Its history was so deep that even Raiden believed it to be nothing more then a legend. The gem was located in the Realm of Zaterra where it was guarded by a magical flaming skull in the Sphere of Tetsurri. It appeared as a red oval shaped jewel which was capable of infecting people with blinding hatred making friends turn against one another and armies destroy themselves due to the hatred from the gem.

Though it was called a gem, it was not a jewel, but in fact, an ancient crystalized heart of its owner. It was a demon stone capable of darkening the soul with its power being only capable of being unleashed by a powerful sorcerer. The effects of the gem only grew progressively worse with simple arguments eventually leading to souls so dark that allies would try to kill one another. However, its effects were not limited to a person's enemies and those who unleashed its power were also threatened to be consumed by it. The powers of the gem protected it from harm though the strongest and most skilled fighter was capable of shattering it.

Quan Chi used a portal from Earthrealm to enter Zaterra and retrieve the gem in order to unleash its powers on the defenders of Earth. It was ultimately destroyed by Nightwolf.

In Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, The Gem of Tetsurri appeared in Reptile's Lair on a claw-like pedestal in a green magic aura with a vibration sound when you are near it.

The Gem of Tetsurri is not the only enchanted reptillian heart featured in Mortal Kombat. The Dragon King's Heart figures heavily in the plots of both Mortal Kombat:Deadly Alliance and Mortal Kombat: Deception. Interestingly, both hearts were sought after by Quan Chi to increase his power.
