* A lot of people seem to think that earlier games implied ShipTease between Hayabusa and Kasumi. Upon reflection I really don't see this. Anyone care to give specific examples and in what instance?
** Probably just shipping goggles. People will see romantic implications between the most unlikely of characters. If two good friends suddenly start arguing due to a stressful situation, it's "obviously" underlying sexual tension, and not just genuine irritation. Likewise, they will pair someone up with a "rival" that character barely acknowledges, just because they like that pairing, regardless of how unlikely it is. Shippers are odd that way.
* Can someone please explain about Kasumi, Project Alpha, Kasumi Alpha, Alpha-152 and any other Kasumis
** I am getting confused can someone please explain about Kasumi, Project Alpha, Kasumi Alpha, Alpha-152 and any other Kasumis, I know that there is at least three Kasumis in Dead or Alive 5 but what confuses me is the Hooded Kasumi is she one of the three Kasumis or is she Kasumi Alpha or Alpha-152?
*** Based on what was seen in the cutscenes in DOA5, there is more than one Alpha. The playable one in game is simply [[YouAreNumberSix number 152]] of a series. Presumable, the hooded Kasumi we see in the end is yet another one that simply wasn't destroyed during the ending.
*** Kasumi α is a clone of Kasumi made by [=DOATEC=], they later modified her genome further and turned her into Alpha-152. The clone Kasumi is implied to be another product of this project (Project Alpha). The hooded Kasumi on the other hand is Phase-4, which is an improved model of Kasumia α/Alpha-152.
* On a similar note. Can somebody explain where the heck all the backstory and explanations for this series comes from? The games are generally a confusing mess and I don't honestly know where to go to find what's canon outside the wiki, and then, where did all that information come from?
