* TookALevelInBadass: Her fighting style got a pretty deep upgrade in ''Dead or Alive 4'', making her faster and way more agile than in previous games. Most people agree that she's more powerful like that.
** However, in ''Dimensions'' Tecmo put Kasumi-Alpha as a way for players to use her move set from the first three games.

* VagueAge: Outside of Japan she was never given an exact age, but the Japanese version states she's 17 during the first 4 games. However, now as of ''Dead or Alive 5'', she's 19, thus leaving "[[JailBait the danger zone]]".

* HonorBeforeReason: She's willing to kill members of her own family, regardless of her feelings for them, in order to uphold the *ninja code*. Then again, her family is pretty [[BigScrewedUpFamily dysfunctional]].
** It's [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] anyway. To not do so would make you just as marked as your target by another shinobi who might not be as forgiving.

* JailBait: In the international version, this was completely avoided with VagueAge as so to prevent a moral backlash within the consumer fanbase, but in the Japanese ver., she's 16. Averted come ''[=DOA5=]'', as she's 18.

* DisappearedDad: Not that Ayane minded his absence at all and probably would've preferred him to stay gone forever, preferably dead. But ''6'' raises another question on why this was the case with [[spoiler: his second daughter, Honoka, who probably knew nothing about him]].

* PlotArmor: Teaming up with ConservationOfNinjutsu to keep her clan from killing her over the course of 3 tournaments. Considering that she defeats Raidou, someone who even both Ayane & Hayate couldn't beat together, says something. Subverted, Dimensions shows that when Hayate and Ayane fought Raidou they were acting irrationally. This is evident when Ayane told Hayate not to use Torn Sky Blast against Raidou because of his copy abilities. Despite the warning Hayate did it anyway and as a result it back fired badly. Likewise, later on when Ayane tried to attack him, Kasumi shouted for Ayane to stop, but she didnít listen and was easily knocked away. While Kasumi did initially defeat Raidou, she needed help to finish him off. During Kasumiís Torn Sky Blast clash with Raidou she was being overpowered, but Hayabusa provided an opening for Kasumi to take advantage of. That being said Kasumi has consistently been shown to be an incredibly skilled ninja throughout the series. In order for to even be allowed to face Raidou she had to defeat all the combatants of the Dead or Alive tournament. When Kasumi reigned victorious over Raidou, Victor Donovan became obsessed with her , and ended up cloning her to make super soldiers from her DNA. While Kasumi has been defeated by Hayate before she has been shown many times to have comparable or even greater skill than him. Likewise Kasumi has defeated Ayane multiple times throughout the series when the latter tries to kill her. In DOA 4 Hayabusa trusts that Kasumi is capable of handling the incredibly dangerous Alpha 152 alone. The result is they end up fighting to a standstill, prompting the clone to retreat. In DOA 5 a Kasumi clone was shown to be capable of holding her own against both Hayate and Ayane at the same time, and it was a joint effort that resulted in the cloneís death. In the gameís climax the real Kasumi is responsible for destroying Alpha 152.

* ReluctantWarrior: She always tries to avoid fighting and goes for a pacifistic solution first, especially when it's against an ally. But when she sees there's no choice but to fight, she tosses any doubts and goes all for it. She's tossed most of this aside by 5, though.

But when she sees there's no choice but to fight, she tosses any doubts and goes all for it. She's tossed most of this aside by 5, though. In 6 her intros and victory poses show that she now has little reluctance about fighting. The exceptions being Ayane or Hayate where she will question why they must fight.


Added DiffLines:

* WhenSheSmiles: Kasumi tends to be a very serious individual meaning she doesnít smile often, but when she does itís especially beautiful.

Added DiffLines:
