Sonya Blade (MKX)
In the spirit of Mother’s Day, we figured we’d throw together a list of the best mothers in video games, because even digital personas deserve a bit of love and recognition. Kicking the list off is someone who only recently debuted as a mother, although she’s been present in video games for over 20 years now. Sonya Blade is the mother to Cassie Cage in Mortal Kombat X, and after seeing how efficient her daughter is in combat you just know that Sonya is one proud mama.
She may not seem like the most nurturing of parents on the surface, but that’s because she’s responsible for keeping the denizens of Earthrealm safe from annihilation. However, underneath that no-nonsense attitude is a woman who truly cares about the well being of her loved ones – even if she has an unorthodox way of showing it. As an added bonus, her daughter can say that her mother is one of the fiercest warriors in all the realms. That must have definitely earned young Cassie some bragging rights on the playground.
