** The Cold Hydraulic build is a [[StoneWall Stone Wall]] with a low damage output, but there are two incredibly useful skills it can use to its advantage. The first skill, Flash Freeze, stuns the enemy for two turns. The second skill, Mind Freeze, prevents the enemy from using skills that require Focus. With these two skills, you can disable a single enemy for an entire battle.

* LaserGuidedAmnesiaLaserGuidedAmnesia: Sonny doesn't remember who he was when he was alive, and his main goal is to find answers regarding his past.



* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Downplayed, Sonny is still a snarky [[TheEveryman everyman]] in the reboot but he's generally less angsty and more well-adjusted to becoming a zombie. [[spoiler: Baron Brixius goes through this as well, going from [[ForTheEvulz a sadistic zombie overlord who instigates pointless conflict for his own amusement]] to [[AntiVillain a tragic figure who unintentionally causes the zombie apocalypse with his attempts to bring back his deceased wife]]]].

A series of Flash games (two thus far with a third currently in the works) made by [=KrinLabs=] and published by Armor Games, ''Sonny'' puts the player in the shoes of a recently deceased young man who, through some sort of experiment, was brought back from the dead as a zombie. On top of this, the man has [[LaserGuidedAmnesia no memory of his life before death]]. A blind man by the name of Louis finds him aboard a research vessel, and leads the first man (whom Louis named Sonny because the man cannot recall his real name) to lifeboats that will allow Sonny to escape from the vessel.

* ElementalPowers: A staple of the game's combat system. Each character tends to have access to one or two elements in their attacks.
** In the first game, Sonny has access to every element except {{Poison|ousPerson}} and [[DishingOutDirt Earth]]. In the second, he can choose between three classes that give him two elements each: Biological gives him Physical and {{Poison|ousPerson}}, Psychological gives him [[ShockAndAwe Electric]] and [[CastingAShadow Shadow]], and Hydraulic gives him Physical and [[AnIcePerson Ice]]. In the third, he starts with Physical and can select two more trees that give him access to [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], [[GreenThumb Nature]], [[AnIcePerson Ice]], [[ShockAndAwe Electric]], and [[CastingAShadow Shadow]].
** Veradux consistently has access to [[ShockAndAwe Electric]] attacks, and can also use a {{Poison|ousPerson}} move in the first game.
** Roald focuses on Physical and [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] moves.

* CastingAShadow / ShockAndAwe / PsychoElectro: The Psychological, which is based on [[MindRape mentally destroying the opponent,]] or shocking them into submission [[FridgeBrilliance (because, you know, the brain runs on electrical impulses)]].



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Sonny has more fantastic elements from Krin's earlier RPG's, including the inclusion of a Magic stat as well as fairly standard RPG classes that only differ in starting stats (as opposed to each having separate skill trees). ''Sonny 2'' [[DoingInTheWizard replaces Magic with Instinct]] and makes most abilities either [[MagicFromTechnology technology-based]] or implied to be the result of zombification mutating Sonny. The three player classes are more unique and represent a particular emphasis of the bodily system corrupted -but enhanced- by being a zombie and each class has their own skill tree with multiple build paths within.
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Subverted. The system that the Sonny games use divides the elements into two systems: Piercing and Defense. Piercing governs attack in that you'll be more likely to CriticalHit with an attack of that element if your Piercing rating is higher than level one (equip items and certain skills can influence defense and piercing). Defense offers DamageReduction against that element.

* EverybodyMustGetStoned: As mentioned in the below {{Mind Screw}} and {{Mushroom Samba}} examples, Sonny and his party get stoned in Zone 4 due to a toxic gas. At one point, Veradux begins to sing "You are my Sunshine" before Sonny tells him to stop, and later during a fight with a hippie zombie, after the first time the zombie casts a particular spell, Sonny says, "I'm... freaking out, man...".
