It seems like every time Sonya gets announced for an MK game people whine and throw tantrums, complaining that she’s a stale character, “she needs to pass the torch”, she’s “too old”, she’s in too many games, etc...

Are you guys actually saying this with a straight face? I mean, do you really not see how hypocritical it is to crap on Sonya for being overplayed...and say nothing about Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Reptile, Kitana, Mileena, Ermac, Rain, Smoke, etc...?

Let’s call this what it is. Sexism. People have a problem with Sonya because she has stereotypically masculine aspects of herself and generally dresses more conservatively than the other females. If she was flipping around in a string bikini/thong you wouldn’t have a problem with her. But for some males, when a woman isn’t sexualized - she’s worthless.

She’s no less developed as a character as Scorpion and Sub-Zero, and they’ve been in more entries than her. Hell, of all the originals she’s the one whose design has consistently changed the most! So get out of here with that misogynistic nonsense. Sonya’s coming back, and she’s going to be voiced by a tough chick who could kick your ass in real life - get over it.

I mean yeah sure, but you actually listed Rain and Smoke as overplayed??? Are you okay?
The Sindel scene in MK9 was epic, and nothing can change my mind!

Oh yeah, I know. Pfft.

Don’t waste your time, people, because this OP isn’t going to respond to anyone trying to flame him. If you want a mature conversation or debate I’m up for it. Otherwise, really - don’t waste your time.

People love to complain until the roster gives them everything they want. Then, they find something new to complain about.

If Johnny gets to be in, Sonya can, too. Equal opportunity digital decapitation.

I included them in the list because they’re both generally staples (even if not always playable) and they aren’t exactly the deepest characters of the palette swaps. That’s all. I was just going to say “all the ninjas”.
