— Sonja -

Sonja (Japanese: アスカ Asuka) is a Commanding Officer from Yellow Comet and Kanbei's daughter. She debuted in Advance Wars. She is notable for wearing a different outfit in the Japanese versions of the Advance Wars games than in the American and European releases. In the former she wears a red dress and glasses, in the latter she wears a green dress with no glasses.

Role[edit]

In Advance Wars[edit]

Sonja acts as the enemy on a series of three hidden missions where she tests the skills of not only the player, but also the Orange Star COs. She is also instrumental in finding out why the nations of Cosmo Land are at war and revealing Sturm. She is captured by Sturm on their first meeting and as such, is one of three unplayable COs for The Final Battle (the other two being Nell and Sturm himself).

In Advance Wars 2[edit]

Alongside Kanbei and Sensei, Sonja helps repel a Black Hole invasion led by Adder. First she destroys one of Adder's forces, then routs a group of units led by Lash. Sonja can also be selected for the Yellow Comet lab mission, as well as the factory missions for Yellow Comet and Green Earth and the two missions vs. Sturm.

In Advance Wars: Dual Strike[edit]

Sonja, Sami, Grit and Eagle arrive in Omega Land with reinforcements for the Allied Nations. She can be selected from that point on to fight in any mission.

Personality[edit]

Relationships[edit]

Sonja's friendship with Kanbei is an interesting one. The two serve as foils for each other - Kanbei is an impulsive, honor-driven technophobe whereas Sonja is a calculating and calm prodigy. However, the two rely on each other to cover each other's weaknesses and generally get along.

Sonja also has an odd sort of friendship with Lash. Although the two are both young geniuses, their personalities couldn't be much more different. The two share a rivalry which seems to alternate between friendly and bitter.

Sami is Sonja's other main rival and in their days at military academy, their rivalry was certainly bitter. However, they are on much friendlier terms these days.

Sonja isn't particularly close to Sensei but holds a high degree of respect for him.

Skills[edit]

Sonja's skills changed a bit over the course of the series, but generally centred around intel and the manipulation thereof. Her most famous skill is her enhanced vision range.

In Advance Wars[edit]

Day-to-day: Sonja's units have one extra space of vision range and their HP is hidden from enemies on the map screen (it is still present on the battle animations, however). She is unlucky and can do up to 20% less damage each turn.

CO Power: Enhanced Vision: Sonja's vision range increases by a further 2 spaces and her units can see into woods/reefs without being next to them. Standard CO Power boost for all units.

In Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising[edit]

Day-to-day: Sonja's units have one extra space of vision range and their HP is hidden from enemies on the map screen (it is still present on the battle animations, however). Her counterattacks are also 50% stronger. She is unlucky and can do up to 10% less damage each turn.
