Bankotsu-bo. But it was too late to stop the Tengu of Destruction from triggering a massive, worldwide collapse. The collapse churns up a dense cloud that covers the entire planet in a shroud of darkness and fear. DOATEC has gone astray, turning into the hunting grounds for power-hungry scam artists. This is when DOATECs Development Department - a fortress for state-of-theart military technology - witnesses the success of a genius. Following Project Alpha and Project Epsilon, the ever-ambitious Dr. Victor Donovan completes the Omega Project, producing a new superhuman. Genra. This man, who was once leader of the Hajin Mon Ninja, is no longer human. He - or It - is a force of singular and unprecedented capabilities.

Basic Battle Know-How

The techniques and tips below will help you win Dead or Alive 3 battles.


Dead or Alive 3 Legend

Defensive Position

When you are about to be knocked to the ground, press the P, K, or F button to adopt a defensive position and avoid going down.
* The defensive position cannot be used against some types of attacks.


Buttons Used
directional pad directional pad directional pad directional pad directional pad X button Y button B button Simultaneously Pause Brief press Long Press


Use the same type of attack as your opponent strike or throw to execute a counterattack. A counter causes more damage to your opponent than a normal attack. In addition, when a strike is used to counter a throw or a throw is used to counter a hold, an even more powerful high counterattack is launched, doing massive damage to your opponent.
Attacks and defense by the wall
With some strike moves, if you strike near the wall you can send your opponent toward the wall. Proper use of this move, such as putting some distance between yourself and your opponent, or forcing him or her toward the wall, will help turn the fight in your favor. You can also release multiple attacks upon an opponent who still has not recovered from the hit against the wall. Some throws change if used near the wall.

AE from neutral position

Perform the moves to the left and right of this symbol at the same time Perform the moves to the left of this symbol, pause, and then continue with the moves to the right of this symbol.

* Escaping from the Wall When you are thrown against a wall, you will lie helpless against it for a certain amount of time if youre still suffering from the damage. In such a case, press c or h on your directional pad as youre getting up so that you lean against the wall at a slight angle as you get up.

Off the Edge

Stages such as "LOST WORLD" and "LORELEI" feature multiple levels. You can send your opponent off the edge by striking or throwing him or her near the edges of these stages, or by the wall. Be aware that falling to the lower levels of these stages will result in damage. The key to winning is using free steps to position yourself in accordance with the layout of the stage. * When you send an opponent off the edge, your character will jump down after him or her, but you will not receive any damage. * The tiered structure will differ depending on the stage. You cannot fall off the edge in some places. * Not all attacks allow you to send your opponent off the edge.
Instructions for keys apply when the characters are facing to the right.


Kasumi is a kunoichi (female ninja) who was ordained as leader of the "Mugen Tenshin" style. Instead of accepting this position, she became a "runaway shinobi" so that she might avenge her brother, Hayate, who was partially paralyzed by DOATEC. Day after day she is forced to defend herself from attempts on her life by highly skilled assassins. Then, one day, Kasumi learns that Hayate is to be at the DOA tournament. Though she finally meets her long-lost brother in this last tournament, it is impossible for a runaway shinobi ever to return home in peace.

Possessed of all the characteristics required of an assassin, this cold-blooded woman has undergone the ultimate adaptation - excelling in the art of She Quan, which she employs to the fullest. Christie has been hired by Donovan, leader of DOATEC's anti-Douglas faction, and enters DOA in order to keep an eye on Helena.


Helena is the illegitimate daughter of the coupling between Fame Douglas, leader of DOATEC, and his mistress. Whether she likes it or not, she is dragged into the intertwined conspiracies within the huge DOATEC organization as the only living relative of Douglas. Captured at last by the anti-Douglas faction of DOATEC, Donovan challenges her to win in the DOA tournament. If she really wants the truth, she has no choice but to fight.

Best Moves

TENSHIN-HIINSHUOne of Brad Wongs best techniques is his ability to evade attacks with his erratic movement and stances. His Tenshin-Hiinshu ducks under all high attacks and throws from the moment Brad goes into the animation. After the evasion, you can mix up several different attacks, including Gyoin-Chowan and Gyoin-Dantai, which can also lead into other attacks since many of Brads techniques transition from one to another quite well.
SOKUTO ATTACKSThese are more of Brads evasive attacks. The Keppo-Sokuto and Ren-Sokuto ducks under all high attacks and throws and leaves Brad Wong in one of several stances, depending on how you execute the attack. Using the RenSokuto, if you stop after the first or second attack, youll end up in Brads backturned stance. If you use Keppo-Sokuto, youll end up in Brads neutral stance. If you use the Keppo-Honshin-Dantai or Ren-Houshin-Dantai, youll roll backward and end up in Brads back-turned stance. The evasiveness of this string and the numerous options it provides make it one of his best techniques.
REN-KOHONTAIThis is yet another evasive attack for Brad Wong. Ren-Kohontai ducks under all high attacks and throws. Brad can stop the string at any point and transition into attacks at various heights, effectively confusing his opponent. It also has the ability to leave Brad in his lying stance by pressing x after any of the attacks in the string. Brads many options off this attack make it a very useful technique.
LYING STANCEBrad is one of the few characters in Dead or Alive 4 with multiple attack stances. His lying stance allows him to evade all high attacks and throws, while giving him access to several solid attacks such as the Fukushin-Haitai, Zenkon-Soteki, or Konsentai throw. He can also sidestep to either direction (or in this case, side-roll) with Oten, or roll forward and backward with Shinzen-Ten-i or Shinko-Ten-i. Just be careful while in the lying stance because Brad can be hit with mid and low attacks even though hes lying on the ground.

BACK-TURNED STANCEIf you havent figured it out by now, well repeat it: Brad Wong is all about evasion and confusing his foes. His back-turned stance is just another tool that allows him to accomplish this strategy. Brad has many attacks that can transition right into his backturned stance such as Gyoin-Chowan, or you can access the stance without executing any. Other characters that have a back-turned attacks with the standard command of A,A+ stance have a somewhat limited arsenal of attacks while in the stance, but Brads backturned stance is almost as potent as his neutral stance, thanks to attacks such as the Haisei-Sochisen and Renkan-Kaso.

Offensive Strategies

Brad Wongs offense and defense are virtually the same. Brads main offensive tool is his ability to confuse opponents. Even when youre playing against another experienced Brad Wong player, it can be difficult to determine exactly what your opponent will do next. While this makes Brad Wong a formidable opponent, it also means that Brad is very difficult to learn. It takes a lot of time and patience to learn all the ins and outs of Brad Wong, but once you have mastered him, he is one of the most confusing characters in the game. On offense, Brad Wong players should use attacks that transition from one stance to another to keep their opponents guessing. The first attacks out of Brads GyoinChowan and Gyoin-Dantai are great tools to evade high attacks and throws: Attack with Gyoin-Chowan so your opponent cant duck under the second hit. It will put Brad in his back-turned stance.
Once you are in the back-turned stance, use Brads various strings, as well as his Suiho-Unshin-Haiho throw, to keep your opponent on their toes. The Haisei-Honshin-Dantai, Rengeki, Honshin-Dantai, Renkan-Yogeki, and Renkan-Kaso are great attacks from the back-turned stance that confuse your opponent and allow you to free cancel at any time to transition into a throw. This also prevents your opponent from countering you if they do figure out whats coming next. Brad also excels in his lying stance. Several attacks transition into his Lying stance, such as the RenToshin, Tessa, or Kasenko, Konsen-Tai. Once in lying stance, make sure youre either moving or attacking. Do not simply lie in the stance because Brad cant block while hes lying down. Mix up Brads Konsentai throw, Fukushin-Getsuga, Zenkon-Soteki, FukushinBokko and other moves that transition into other stances. When at a distance, use his Oten, ShinzenTen-I, and Shinko-Ten-I to confuse your opponent and ensure that they dont know whats coming next.

Online Strategies

The main issue with online play and Brad Wong is timing. Due to the latency present during online play, Brad Wong players no longer have any room for delay when they transition from one stance to another. Make sure youre executing an attack from your stance of choice as soon as you enter the stance. If theres any delay, youll easily be knocked out of the stance by your opponent. To help get in and out of stances faster, input the command for the attack youre trying to execute immediately after you input the command for the stance. This makes the attack execute as soon as Brad enters the stance, leaving no room for error.

Wall Strategies

Brad Wong and the wall do not go hand in hand. Brads erratic movements make it difficult to dish out damage in a timely manner during a wall stun. Youll even have difficulty getting your opponent to the wall from a distance. Many of Brads attacks long-range attacks such as the Senshin-Choto leave him in a bad position to capitalize on wall damage. Your best bet is to wait until youre close to the wall, then use your choice of attacks to knock your opponent into the wall. The Senpu, Zenku works well for this task. After you put your opponent into a wall stun, youll be fairly limited with your attacks. You can use Brads jabs and Ren-Chowan to keep the stun going, then slam your opponent into the wall with Kyuho-Toda.

Defensive Strategies

Theres not much to Brad Wongs defense. He has one philosophy: evade, evade, evade. Many of Brads attacks evade all high attacks and throws. His GyoinChowan and Ren-Sokuto evade highs from his neutral and Z+ evade from backstance, while his X+ turned stance. In addition, his lying stance evade all high attacks and throws instantly. Using high attacks and throws against a skilled Brad Wong player is not an easy task. However, beyond his ability to duck under high attacks, Brad Wong doesnt have much else to rely on when hes on the defensive. From a distance, his erratic movement can help to confuse opponents. Continually transitioning from his neutral stance to back-turned to the lying stance, and rolling around while in his lying stance can bait your opponent into whiffing an attack, but its risky business to say the least. Brad Wong players need to be patient and focus on evading high attacks, while countering mid and low attacks. This should make opponents hesitant to attack.


Bass was arguably the top character in Dead or Alive 3 with his Ground Throw and Buffalo Rage. The gameplay system in Dead or Alive 4 has slightly changed how he must be played, but hes still a contender for the top spot. Bass is not an easy character to play, though; he has a very steep learning curve. An effective Bass player must be extremely patient because Bass is generally slower than the other characters and has to rely more on interrupts and his ground game than anything else.

BUFFALO RAGEAny Bass player who doesnt use the Buffalo Rage as their primary offensive attack is not using the big guy correctly. In previous Dead or Alive titles, the Buffalo Rage could be punished when blocked, but because of its ability to duck under all high attacks and throws, and launch an opponent for a juggle followed by a Ground Throw, it quickly became the wrestlers best attack. In this game, not only has Tecmo retained the Buffalo Rages evasive properties and the devastating follow-ups, but they have now added a second part to the attack that guard breaks when blocked, giving Bass frame advantage. When the Buffalo Rage is used to interrupt attack strings, Bass is a very difficult character to fight against.

GROUND THROWTheres not much to say here other than abuse, abuse, abuse. When your opponent has been slammed to the ground by the Knee Hammer or a similar attack, the Ground Throw lifts your foe off the ground while completely interrupting any attempt at a rising kick. From here, Bass pushes the opponent away, giving him a large frame advantage and the ability to attack with just about anything. Your best bet in this situation is generally Buffalo Rage, an offensive hold, or your throw of choice.
KNEE HAMMERThis is one of Basss primary attacks for two reasons. The attack can be used after a Buffalo Rage or just about any other launcher to slam the opponent back to the ground for a possible Ground Throw. When not used in a juggle, the second attack in this string can be delayed, or not used at all to keep your opponent guessing. You can free cancel after the first attack, then go right into a throw or Power Gong. If your opponent catches on and starts interrupting after your free cancel, simply use the second part of the attack, which cant be interrupted.
POWER GONGBass may be one of the largest characters in Dead or Alive 4 in terms of physical size, but that doesnt prevent several of his attacks from being fairly evasive. His Power Gong is one of these attacks; it ducks under all high attacks and throws. The second hit of the string grounds the opponent, leaving the foe open to a possible Ground Throw. If the second hit becomes predictable and starts to get countered, you can use one of Basss many throws, which can dish out a great deal of Z+ damage when used against a counterhold. This should make your opponents hesitant to counter the second attack. ONE LEG STANDING HEAD BUTTWhile not the most damaging throw, the One Leg Standing Head Butt gives Bass a good amount of frame advantage when it hits. Follow it up with a mix-up between the Power Gong, Buffalo Rage, and another One Leg Standing Head Buttyour opponent will be forced to play a guessing game. Your primary focus with this throw should be to keep your opponent on the defensive, leaving them open to move throws and letting you attack at will.

C,C+ W+ki,D+ A,D+

First attack must connect on counter or hi counter.
One of the best characters in the game, Bass can be played two very different ways. The first way uses an aggressive strategy that focuses on offensive holds, the One Leg Standing Head Butt, and the Power Gong to interrupt and ground the opponent. Once your opponent has been grounded, use the Ground Throw to give Bass the advantage and force the opponent to guess whats coming next. The Ground Throw doesnt always connect on a grounded opponent, but if you play smart and interrupt your opponents attacks youll connect on a counter and hi counter, making the Ground Throw virtually guaranteed. Also, keep in mind that the Ground Throw goes right through rising kicks when an opponent is on the ground, so dont be afraid to apply pressure and go for the Ground Throw especially when you ground an opponent with a hi counter attack.

The second way Bass can be played is by using a patient attack strategy. Using this method of attack, Bass players must wait for an opening to use the Buffalo Rage. An opening can be found when an opponent uses high attacks or whiffs an attack. Stay back and let your foe come to you, using the Buffalo Rage as a keep-away tool until you can find an opening to juggle and ground your opponent for a Ground Throw. This is the most effective way to play Bass, but also the most difficult. It takes a considerable amount of time and patience. No matter how you wish to play Bass, one thing remains constanthis entire offensive game plan revolves around the Buffalo Rage and the Ground Throw. Using these tools effectively is the only way Bass can win in high-level play, and is what makes Bass one of the best characters in the game.
Bass is one of the slower characters in Dead or Alive 4, so defense is very important for him. He doesnt have any sabaki attacks (attacks that auto-parry), or any special parries or counterholds like some of the other characters. Because of this, his defensive options are somewhat limited, but that doesnt mean he lacks a solid defense. His defensive strategies revolve mainly around his ability to interrupt attacks from a distance with the Buffalo Rage and go under high attacks and throws with the Power Gong. Youll also need to focus on mixing in his plentiful offensive holds.
First and foremost, Bass players should play the spacing game when theyre on defense. Some fighting game fans refer to this as turtling: its basically the art of waiting for your opponent to make the first move. Bass is a big guy and wont beat out many attacks, especially from the faster characters. However, with a properly timed Buffalo Rage or Power Gong, Bass can interrupt high punches, kicks, and throws and go right back on the offensive. To do this, he needs some room to work, since both of these attacks have a relatively slow start-up time. If youre fighting against an aggressive opponent that wont let you stay back and patiently wait for an opening, you can use Basss offensive holds to break down your opponents attack and give Bass some room to breathe. Since Bass is a grappler, he has more offensive holds than most of the other characters. It wont make much of a difference which offensive holds you use, since the primary reason to use them is to interrupt your opponents attacks and get yourself back on the offensive.
When played online, Bass has many more opportunities to use the Ground Throw because the small latency in every online match makes it more difficult for opponents to tech roll off the ground and avoid the Ground Throw. Bass also can rely on his multi-throws a lot more online than offline. This is because its much harder for your opponent to successfully escape a multi-throw, as the timing is much stricter when playing online. Basss throw game becomes more prominent in online play. Its much harder for opponents to react to his throws. A very useful technique in online play is , , followed immediately by your choice of throws. If you mix this up with the Combo Gong, your opponents wont have time to duck under or interrupt the throw.

Just about any attack Bass successfully lands from a relatively close distance can knock his opponent into a wall. Bass is a powerful character, so you wont need to worry about using a set number of attacks to take advantage of the wall. After you knock your opponent into the wall, mix up his Combo Stomp Kick and Knee Hammer while using a Wild Bull Head Butt throw from time to time, in case your opponent tries to counter off a wall bounce.

Full description

Since the initial arcade and PlayStation releases in 1996, Tecmo's Dead or Alive has developed into one of the three or four most important 3D fighting series in gaming. Exclusive to the Xbox at the time of its release, this third game in the series is designed to maintain and build upon that prominence. Familiar characters return and new fighters are introduced, all in unprecedented detail. The true-3D maneuvering and multi-level stages have been retained and enhanced to offer a familiar feel in fresh environments.
