*** Another quote of hers that qualifies is "''Gomen nasai! Tatemasu ka?''". It can be translated as "I'm so sorry! Can you stand up?" as well as "I'm so sorry! Are you having an erection?"

* CrackIsCheaper: As mentioned below in InternetBackdraft,buying all the costumes for ''[=DOA=] 5'' will cost you more than a brand new UsefulNotes/XboxOne or UsefulNotes/PS4.

** The announcement that ''6'' would be steering away from sexual content took all of three seconds to cause this. You have one camp who claims that Koei Tecmo are stripping the series of it's identity to appease so-called SJWs, while others are not as bothered by it. Others still claim that this is eerily similar to the initial marketing of ''5'', which tried to go for a more serious tone, but eventually bailed in favour of selling a multitude of lewd costume DLCs.

** The franchise itself is this towards the ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' series. Itagaki's contempt towards Harada's games is where the whole fan rivalry started.

** The franchise itself is this towards the ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' series. Itagaki's contempt towards Harada's games is where the whole fan rivalry started. This too has died down since Itagaki's departure, and both series' fandoms and developers are on better terms nowadays.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In the final cut scene of Helena's DOA 4 story and Dimensions' story-line. Everything's going to hell. Then suddenly, there's this shot where some random woman who wasn't seen in any other part of the game is being shot in the head. Why it seems so out of place is because this was a cinematic cut scene, which none of the cinematic ones had any extras in up until this point. What made this shot even more jarring was that pretty much all other extras in the game are all blank-faced clones who all seem to shop from the same clothing store. Many character endings from the first four games could also qualify. Some even look completely out of character. Why does Kasumi dream of being a (naked) mermaid in what looks like a J-Pop music video?

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: BigLippedAlligatorMoment:Many, many combat scenes only show the immediate prelude to combat and provide minimal context, so it can be easy for encounters to be random, unexplained, and later ignored.

** Eliot in ''[=DOA4=]'' appears, ''apropos'' of nothing in the slightest, at the DOATEC helipad to do battle with Christie, who literally levitates down to meet him. What he's doing there and why she's flying go completely unmentioned, even when they encounter one another again in ''[=DOA5=]''.

* StuckInTheirShadow: ''Dead or Alive'' has male characters. Common knowledge to fans, but if you told this to a non-fan, it would likely be news to them. In fact, even within the fandom, when someone brings up "who's your favorite male character?", a common joke is to say "...there's male characters?". This naturally is a point of contention to some. Ryu Hayabusa is almost exempt from this given Ninja Gaiden's own popularity.

** ''Venus Vacation'''s gacha system and its RNG divided the fans when using stones in attempt to unlock an SSR bathing suit for the girl of your choice. Due to the nature of gacha, you'll have ''extremely'' low chance of unlocking an SSR outfit ''or'' a girl you want to unlock. This includes Luna, who has a ''rare'' chance of showing up if you paid real money to buy stones to unlock her.


Added DiffLines:

** Luna gained this status after her debut in ''Venus Vacation''. Her weird personality while speaking in monotone and her rather hilarious interactions with Ayane made her one of the two popular girls in ''Venus Vacation''.
