* {{Crossover}}: A minor example, but some of the DLC in ''Last Round'' are inspired by other franchises, such as a stage and costumes based on ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', and costumes based on ''Manga/FairyTail''.



* DownloadableContent: There are a ''massive'' number of costumes available for purchase, and some free stages as well. ''Ultimate'' also has extra characters available for purchase.

* EarnYourFun: ''[=DOA5=]'' challenges the hardcore among the hardcore players if they want to unlock 3 extremely skimpy swimsuits for Tina, Christie and Lisa; the game features a ''whopping total of 8 levels'' of difficulty: '''Rookie, Easy, Normal, Hard, Champ, True Fighter, Master and Legend''', with the last three being unlocked after the preceding difficulty is beaten; rest assured that your average player canít go through Hard without losing continues, if you want those Rare Swimsuits you must mow through Legend Ė 4 difficulties beyond Hard Ė ''without losing a single continue'' on Arcade for Tinaís, Time Attack for Christieís and on Survival for Lisaís. Simply put itís a nightmare to get these pieces of clothing for the girls, the computer on Legend is on an whole new level of [[TheAllSeeingAI reading and countering]] any attack the player tries to connect, just beating this mode is a nerve-cracking task, but beating it without losing continues is absurd, and thatís not enough, even though the task on Arcade and Time Attack is already beyond insane to complete, at the end of the day is just 8 Stages each, on Survival though, itís 100 Stages, ''a-freaking-hundred quasi-unbeatable opponents to defeat with one small recovering life bar'', so yeah, even some of the most hardcore players stop at Tina and Christieís swimsuits. Luckily it can be avoided - all you have to do is fight 200 online matches.
** Downplayed in Ultimate and Last Round; there they can be unlocked just by clearing Arcade/Time Attack/Survival on any difficulty. The difficulty levels have been toned down as well
* {{Fanservice}}: It could hardly be called a true ''DOA'' game without it. Originally [[DefiedTrope Defied]] in early promotional materials (with attempts to emphasize that [[WeDontSuckAnymore the fighting was the focus]]) but later played straight and even perhaps ''[[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]]'' compared to earlier ''Dead or Alive'' games.

* WeDontSuckAnymore: Tecmo's promotion for ''5'' had a general campaign for fighting gamers to actually take it seriously, explaining the tagline "I'm a Fighter". YMMV if they stuck to that or ended up pushing its status as a {{Fanservice}} franchise even farther than previous ''Dead or Alive'' games.

YMMV if Fighter", which ties in with Team Ninja's campaign to get the Fighting Game Community to take ''DOA'' seriously and not for it to be seen as a purely casual Fanservice-fest. In some ways, this succeeded (the fighting gameplay has been recognized as deeper and more strategic than the series has possibly seen in its entire history with improved wall, movement, combo, and environmental interaction mechanics) and in other ways they stuck to may have undermined that or ended up pushing its status as (there is a {{Fanservice}} franchise even farther than previous ''Dead or Alive'' games.very large catalog of Downloadable Content costumes and they are almost entirely for their female characters, new features like sweat and dirt adhesion also give the game several fanservice qualities it never had before 5).

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Leon disappeared without a trace in the original game. He eventually [[TheBusCameBack returned]] in ''Ultimate''.
** He returned as a bonus character, which makes sense since his role in the story ended with ''3'' (he was also a bonus character in ''4'').

* {{Callback}}: With the ''Videogame/{{Deception}} costume set, many of the characters get new outfits based on one of the characters from the most recent entry. Ayane's costume, of Millenia from Deception 2, isn't new, being a remastered version of one of her costumes from ''Dead Or Alive 2'', part of a crossover with the earlier instalment.
