Awesome / Dead or Alive

Tom Clancy novel

Video game franchise

  • Zack gets one in 4 when he prepares to take on Alpha-152 with the simple declaration of, "Sometimes a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!"
  • Beating Alpha-152 on 4 with anybody is one for the player.
  • Ayane, Hayate and Hayabusa's endings in 4. Even better is that they're used as cutscenes in the Story Mode for Dimensions as part of a seeries of sequential events.
  • Bass' re-entrance to the DOA tournament in 5 as Mr. Strong. What makes this awesome is not just him leaping to the ring from the announcement board. It's also because the subsequent fight against Zack is to the tune of Bass' classic theme back in the first DOA.
  • Genra has Hayate and Ayane on the ropes in Dimensions, what happens next?, Ryu throws a kunai at the bastard's head, then slices, & stabs him with the Dragon Sword, stunning the guy long enough for the former two to finish him off with a Kamehamehadoken. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the power of the Super Ninja.
  • Jann-Lee punching out a T-Rex in 4. (Even if Hitomi doesn't think so.)
