- This article is about the girl from Team Umizoomi. For Sonya Blade from Mortal Kombat, see Sonya (Mortal Kombat).
How Sonya joined the Tourney
Sonya joined The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 to recover from the Big Boat Race for her sailboat. She broke into the Jurassic Park and retrieved a new and improved speedboat. Rather than secret techniques, Sonya was surprised to find-out the boats were devoid of detailed fighting instruction; but, rather, contained only one teaching: ”The one who destroys all other fighting styles and makes them her own shall become a warrior superior to all women, Team Umizoomi.” After the Tournament, Sonya spent her days traveling the globe and fighting against warriors of various martial arts styles. One day she heard rumors of the Smash Bros. Tourney. Seeking to expand her power, she headed for Nintendo Land to join the competition once again.
How to Unlock
In Tourney 1, the player must accomplish one of these tasks to unlock Sonya:
- Play 869 Versus Mode matches.
- Using Spock, defeat 500 enemies in Smash Run.
Players can avoid having to fight her in both games by purchasing her at the Smash Store for 650 coins. For all the aforementioned requirements, the player will have to fight Sonya at Umi City Park. Upon defeating her or after purchasing her, the announcer will say "Someone else has joined the Tourney!" after a Smash Ball appears on the lower-right corner of the screen with a message saying "You can now use boat racer, Sonya!" She will be seen right of Cindy X2, left of Talpa, above Chrom, and below Miguel.
