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 classic 1984 Capcom arcade game, SonSon. In the 1984 game,
SonSon embarks on a mission 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 Sonson's 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.
