Sonya blade is one character you will grow to love. Her fast combos, are move Military stance moves, and mind games can leave her open to almost being untouchable. I may be talking out my butt on the whole untouchable aspect but learn her, and master her skills can leave you with deadly results. Great character and very easy to get into but hard to master.

Complete Guide Video i made with including Combos and more, and i explain how to do all of them as well.


Spoiler:

Sonya is a mind trick character. Her arc kick is deadly for reaching your opponent faster and also good for jump spammers. Her dive kick can also be good for when your Opponent is left open after a blocked combo to jump over you. Kinda like Cyber-Sub Zero dive kick trap. Very Useful. With her Enhanced Leg grab as a combo finisher is extremely good. Just be careful not to spam her leg grab during the fight due to it being extremely punishable. So only use it at the end of Combos. Just be extra careful with her dive kick and Arc kick, they can be punishable on block so use those moves with caution.


Spoiler:

Her Millitary stance (d,b,2) is her BnB. She has a few good moves out it along with a nice crouch block take down (1+3) and a very nice low blow for stand blockers (f+1). Her Uppercut (b+1) can be extremely useful if you follow it with a b+2,1,f+2 combo. I don't recommend using her Military Stance loops since it will be patched soon. You can also break into her stance from within a combo. For example, you can do b+2,1,f+2,dash,b+2,1~military stance,1+3,22. Or you can change it up to how you see fit. She has alot of mind games to play around with. So see what you can come up with.


All props to Testyourmight.com for the combos and info

I like sonya a lot. I actually like all of the officers. Jax, Sonya, and Stryker are my favorites. My only problem is the Arc Kick. It's so easy to miss it sometimes. Other than that she is pretty perfect.

yes i will be making a new and improved guide, not a copy and paste again. Such a huge lazy half ass guide on my part. Expect the new guide to be up in a few day's.

Thanks for making this Aaron! I've been working on Sonya quite alot recently in tag matches with Mileena to get the hang of her and figuring out what works best in what situations. I've got a long way to go, but I'm sure this guide is going to make things much easier for me
