SonSon is a little monkey girl who made her fighting game debut in Marvel VS Capcom 2. She is the granddaughter of another Capcom character (also named SonSon), who starred in the 1984 Capcom arcade game, SonSon. In the game, she tries to find out why her village was struck by an unknown illness. Sonson and her grandfather are both based on Sun Wukong, the main character of the Chinese novel Journey to the West. 

Several of her attacks in MVC2 are derived from that series, such as the size-changing bo staff, Wukong's ability to replicate himself using the hairs of his body, or SonSon trying to cook her opponent in the Shinka Hakke Jin and turn them into sake.

Capcom's re-imagined design of SonSon came out to be pretty cool in MVC2. She's cute, yet a bit annoying at the same time... clearly a key part of her personality. SonSon's animations and special moves are all very well done from all angles. Once agian, Capcom's animators did an outstanding job.

Some MVC2 players might've actually forgotten how cool of a character SonSon really is (I practically forgot she was in the game for a period of time)... since she is a very underused / underpowered character in MVC2. In any case, I'm glad Capcom branched out of the Street Fighter & Darkstalkers realm and included such an obscure character in the game. On a side note: Don't you dare miss her awesome TFG animations pages below. ;)
