Princess Sally Acorn is a Playable DLC Guest fighter in Tekken 7, hailing from the Sonic the Hedgehog Archie Comics Universe, as well as seen in Sonic SatAM television series made by DiC Entertainment for ABC in 1993-1994.
Princess Sally Alicia Acorn is a Princess of the Acorn Kingdom and one of the Protagonists of the Sonic the Hedgehog Archie Comics series, as well as the Saturday Morning Sonic the Hedgehog Television Series back in 1993-1994. She is the leader of the Freedom Fighters, a group of rebellious Anthromophic Animals from the Knothole Village (for the former, it later got expanded into parts of Sonic's world until it's unfortunate cancellation in 2017 when SEGA later partenred up with IDW Publishing) fighting against Eggman's Empire and afterwards, Naugus takes over as the main antagonist in the scrapped third Season (back in the 90s, the series got cancelled after the airing of The Doomsday Project in March 1994). However, the concept is later used in the Comics.
Hey Player #1 look for the Game is the one used as seen in Issue #252, she has brown fur with Strawberry Blonde Red Hair, a Blue sleeveless vest with a Black Tank Top, a pair of Black Skin tight Shorts with white rimming, white gloves with a pair of Blue Energy Blades (called Arm-Blades) and Blue Boots with Dark Blue Squares and White Lining.
As Sally uses her Ring-Blades, she would have a Unique Gameplay style as when compared to the rest of the Tekken 7 Roster, she would use her Energy Blades, akin how Wolverine uses his Claws for his fighting style in his Video Game Appearances, such as all of the Marvel vs. Capcom titles he appears aside from the infamous sequel that came after Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and the Marvel Ultimate Alliance trilogy, as well as the X-Men Bedeo Games such as X-Men: Children of the Atom and the X-Men: Mutant Academy trilogy, with the latter two and the former first (sans MUA which is an Action RPG) are all fighting games that had the X-Men such as Storm, Cyclops, Psylocke, Gambit, Jubilee, Cable and such appear as well besides him in addition to his Old Man Logan form appearing in Marvel Heroes and Marvel's Contest of Champions Mobile. The same is said when Baraka is fighting against everyone else within the Mortal Kombat Universe. In addition to these aforementioned Fighters who use Claws as their Weapons when attacking, parts for her gameplay is a mixture of Terry Bogard from SNK's fighting games (some of her moves) while a few of her moves are original.
Contrast to the Tekken fighters who are mostly Human, she is an Anthromophic Squirrel/Chipmunk Hybrid who fights with a unique Style (in this case, a Blade/Sword-based Weapon just like Yoshimitzu did). In addition, she also uses her Ring-Blades in her Fighting style, as seen in the Comics, akin to Wolverine uses his Claws while using his Fighting style (most of the time and Baraka also does that in the MK Universe too) when he appears in different forms of Marvel Comics media in addition to Talim using her Arm blades in her three appearances in the Soul Calibur series, though she can perform some punches and kicks.
Note: Some of the moves are exclusive to her Post-SGW Incarnation.

Role in Tekken 7
During the events of the Game, but before the events of the Shattered World Saga, Sally and some of the Freedom Fighters, as well as some of Sonic's friends, had been displaced into the world of Tekken. When Sally and her friends are into this World, they found out that two old Men are fighting each other for their family, so Kazuya can conquer it with his own image. Across the world, they met a variety of Fighters with different Nationalities and fighting styles, such as Karate, Boxing and Muay Thai.
