Sonny Joon on the cover of Nancy Drew: The Shattered Medallion

Sonny Joon is a character in the Nancy Drew adventure game series, first appearing in Nancy Drew: Secret of the Scarlet Hand. He is known for his doodles and has a fondness for Koko Kringle chocolate bars.

Though he does not appear in-game until The Shattered Medallion, Sonny leaves his drawings and insight behind at his previous workplaces, which Nancy often finds. Sonny Joon's appearance is seen for the first time in Nancy Drew: The Shattered Medallion.


Sonny has a tendency to goof off during work, often doodling in notebooks rather than getting anything done for his employer. His drawings have appeared in several Nancy Drew games, but his appearance was not known until his first appearance in The Shattered Medallion. In Secret of the Scarlet Hand, Joon was the deputy curator preceding Nancy at the Beech Hill Museum in Washington, D.C., but he showed more interest in alien conspiracy theories than the museum's exhibits on Mayan civilization. Later, in Danger by Design, he had worked as an assistant to fashion designer Minette in France prior to the events of the game. His drawings mock Minette and the other characters, emphasizing his irreverent personality.
