Similarly Named Works:
Talking To Herself: Kasumi and Alpha-152 share the same Japanese and English voice actresses: Houko Kuwashima and Lauren Landa. And in the last stage, Alpha-152 gains the ability to shapeshift into Hayabusa, thus the trope also works for
Hideyuki Hori and Troy Baker, Hayabusa's voice actors. Come Dead or Alive 5: Ultimate on the English side, Kate Higgins voices both Tina Armstrong and Momiji.
What Could Have Been: Team Ninja originally asked Bungie for permission to use the Master Chief, which proved impossible due to storyline restrictions. But the staff at Bungie were intrigued with the idea and wanted to try something similar. As a result, Bungie developed the concept of a Spartan not entirely connected to the Halo storyline who could conveniently and somewhat plausibly be fit into the Dead or Alive universe. This concept evolved into the character of Nicole.
An early data leak suggests that Leon was originally meant to be in DOA5 before being cut mid-development due to time constraints. He returns in Ultimate.
