How Annika joined the Tourney
Annika entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 without her friends' knowledge, and was beaten by Asuka Kazama. To add insult to injury, her friends soon discovered that Annika had entered the tournament. Prohibited from leaving home, Lili was unable to take revenge on Asuka. It was then that her friends' oil fields were taken over by the Mishima Zaibatsu. The company fell into disarray, and Annika's friends collapsed due to stress. Annika was concerned for her father's well being. She figured that if she could get back his oil fields that had been stolen by the Mishima Zaibatsu, she would be able to relieve her father's anxiety. While she was formulating her plans, the Mishima Zaibatsu announced the Smash Bros. Tourney. Unable to pass up such an opportunity, Annika enters the Tourney in order to help her friends.

Annika powers up her crystal as the camera zooms in saying "We have holidays!".
Blue Crystal (Neutral)
A large blue crystal forms itself around Annika, which then splits into tiny blue crystals that spin around her. It can do several hits of damage and also reflect projectiles. Using it in mid-air slows Annika's descent, though very slightly.
Flame Attack (Side)
This is an attack with considerable range, and when it hits the opponent, it burns them and knocks them upward. It can be directed with the control stick or D-pad (while holding the special button) and can be released by letting go of the special button. The longer the special button is held, the stronger the attack. When done in the air, it sends the user into the helpless state. It can be countered, absorbed, or reflected, but this will not send the projectile back at the user. Instead, it just changes the owner of the projectile.
Annika is elevated by an invisible platform.
Enemy Pound (Down)
Annika takes her enemy by the arms, swings them around, and then smashes them to the ground.
Round Kick Combo (Hyper Smash)
Annika gets near her opponent, raises her foot in the air and then kicks her opponent, knocking them out so she can attack again.
Flame Crystal (Final Smash)
The crystal forms around Annika again, but this time, when it breaks apart, flames appear as well. The flames hit everyone in front if her knocking them off the screen.
