Fanfic Recs: Dead or Alive

Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here.

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Dead or Alive fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

Page Reconfiguration in Progress: Fanfic Recommendations is being split into pages for each individual series, so help is needed to classify each entry into the appropiate category, and to format it according to the template.


Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

Crossover Fics
Dead or Alive 4: The Devil Factor by Damon Black
  • Recommended by Nintendoman01
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Crossover with Dead or Alive. Dante gets hired for a job by DOATEC and finds himself in the midst of the war between the company and the Mugen Tenshin. On top of that, Victor Donovan has joined forces with Vergil to uncover a great power hidden away by Sparda long ago.
  • Comments: Decent plot, good character development, and the author does an excellent job with welding the games' continuity together.

Dead or Alive 5: Damned Spirit by Alitolexlto
  • Recommended by Madd Kossack 115
  • Status: In Progress
  • Synopsis: Dante questions what he really is put on the Earth to do. However, it seems that answer will be known by joining contenders of the DOA tournament. However, a sinister plot will reveal itself unto him and the DOA fighters as a great evil is will rise.
  • Comments: Openly admitted to being a tribute to Damon Black's Dead or Alive 4: The Devil Factor, this story does an equally good job at balancing the plot, character development, and fighting scene action together. And don't worry - even though this takes place in the Dm C Devil May Cry Alternate Continuity, Dante is closer to his more beloved personality from the main games, and even Virgil and Kat get some better character development than in DmC too.
