Yes he has enhanced strength and is highly proficient with weapons, but in the movies he shows little in the way of hand to hand combat skill and is rather slow.
Strength is the only thing that matters in this world, everything else is just a delusion for the weak.

Not well

So many of the character could wreck him. Raiden. Scorpion. Sub-Zero. Noob. Frost. Sektor. Cyrax. Shao Kahn. Kotal Kahn. Reptile. Ermac. Liu Kang. Kung Lao. Goro

My first thought: I'd think that a T-800 would be on par with the Special Forces types (Sonya, Jax, Johnny, etc.) and anyone on their level, but it'd be challenged by anyone on Liu Kang's level, and gods like Raiden would wipe their ass with the machine.
Basically, I imagine it as being a challenge but not an insurmountable one for highly skilled humans; especially those with cybernetic or supernatural enhancement.

Immediately, I might be biased. Even if the movies don't really show it, I'd like to think that Skynet programs Terminators to have actual close-combat ability beyond brute force.

Badly. The terminator machines were designed to be scary for normal humans in the real world, nay, in the 80s and 90s.

In any fantasy setting against any kind of magic or superpower they will fail pretty quickly. Sub zero could melt them. Raiden could disable them with electricity. Liu Kang could melt them. etc.

Mk is a world where superpowers means nothing. You have humans beating them. So the Terminator would do just fine.

I also like to mention that Erron Black uses 1800 century guns and he is the most human of the cast. He seems to do fine fighting all kinds of warriors/creatures as a bounty hunter.

Would be absolutely destroyed by Cassie, Jacqui, Kitana, Sonya, Jade, or D'Vorah.

A Terminator got taken out by a scruffy, malnourished soldiered with a pipe and a waitress. Pretty sure even Stryker's got a legit shot at taking one out.

Terminator s main skills
were infiltration and surprise attacks.
Movies say he has human body mapped to strike were it s more lethal.
So doesn't need martial arts skills
Just tank blows get near to kill
I think he could surprise any not insight trained martial artists<mk kids SF>
But againts those used to kill sensing prey s presence<ninja, e.black ,monks>
would fail since he s not a stealth unit and
would give away it s presence with just being there (moving, sound)but not giving any" life being” feedback.
And in a close combat fight d be wrecked in no time
Also giving it a teleport is totally out of character!!

You all forget the fact that they addapt and then they send better versions to the past that can kill their targets more proficiently.

For example, if the target was Reptile, the metal parts would be invulnerable to Reptile acid attacks.

If the target was Subzero, the terminator would have self heating mechanism and high resistance to below 0 temperatures brittleness.

With that in mind, the only characters that really pose a threat to terminators 1o1 are gods, demigods and shapeshifters/warlocks like Shang and Quan Chi. Humans/outworlders would get their weak points exposed and assasinated for it.
