It’s been a lot to keep up with, but there is now a full list of characters that are a part of Dead or Alive 6 and you can check it out in this article.
Check out the list of available characters, courtesy of VG247:
- Ayane: the legendary purple-haired Kunoichi – and a series staple. She has a fast, furious and unpredictable fighting style.
- Bass: king of the ring professional wrestler ‘The Muscle’ Bass returns. He’s still riding his hog – and embarrassing daughter Tina.
- Bayman: Bayman is a Russian assassin best-known for his less-than-stealthy bright orange combat attire. He knows all sorts of CQC techniques that’d rival even Solid Snake…
- Brad Wong: drunken Master Brad Wong is always off his head, but that lets him use the wild, often confusing Zui Quan fighting style. He loves beer.
- Christie: the world of DOA is full of assassins, and none are perhaps as deadly as Christie and her Snake Fist fighting style. Plus, she’s a Brit. What’s not to love?
- Diego: newcomer Diego was raised on the rougher backstreets of New York City. As such, he’s got a rough-and-tumble street fighting style.
- Eliot: an orphan, Eliot was chosen to be the stole pupil of a martial arts master. Now, he competes in tournaments like DOA to prove his prowess.
- Hayabusa: video game royalty, Hayabusa is of course also known for Ninja Gaiden – and appropriately fights with the Hayabusa Style Ninjitsu.
Hayate: there are so many bloody ninjas in this game. Hayate uses Mugen Tenshin Ninjutsu – giving him swift, powerful moves.
Helena: in a sense Helena is partially to blame for all of this, since her father started the DOA tournament. She’s a skilled martial artist herself, fighting with the elegant Pi Gua Quan style.
Hitomi: half Japanese, half German, Hitomi is all Karate master, and is a solid balance all-around fighter, quite capable in all facets of combat.
Honoka: still a schoolgirl, Honoka is a kung-fu master in her own right, and has developed her own style that she rather originally called Honoka Fu.
Jann Lee: with a surname shared with his obvious inspiration Bruce, it’s easy to guess exactly how Jann Lee fights in DOA.
Kasumi: the Kunoichi of Destiny has an updated look for this latest addition to the series. She’s usually a good character for beginners, with a simple but varied move-set and strong strikes.
Kokoro: using the Ba Ji Quan fighting style, Kokoro’s elegant fighting rather resembles dancing – but it’s far more deadly than it looks, especially if she manages to throw you.
Mila: hailing from Spain, Mila represents a more modern form of fighting – the world of Mixed Martial Arts. She has an appropriately aggressive style, including a brutal ground game.
Leifang: series favorite Leifang is back with a new bright yellow outfit. Her fighting style seeks to turn the aggression and power of opponents back against them.
La Mariposa: also known as Lisa, this ex-professional wrestler still fights in her Lucha Libre fighting style – meaning you’ll spend a lot of time in the air.
Marie Rose: Swede Marie has ended up as Helena’s maid, but she’s pretty deadly for a maid, able to use the Russian Systema fighting style. She might be small, but she packs a serious punch.
Nico: newcomer Nico is a blue-haired scientist from Finland, and combines Pencak Silat – an old South-east Asian martial art – with technological gadgets. Doing so allows her to deal out serious damage.
Rig: in a very acute case of name-influencing-job, Rig was once a worker on an oil rig. Fair enough. He’s a Taekwondo master, and is more acrobatic and agile than his brute force looking appearance might suggest.
Tina: series favorite Tina is back with her all-around-solid professional wrestling style – and she’s finally stepping out of the shadow of her famous father.
Zack: dapper man Zack is now probably more famous for his exploits running a beach volleyball holiday paradise island, but he’s also a powerful Muay Thai fighter – though his style isn’t exactly conventional…

FTC Cracking Down on Streamers
The Federal Trade Commission is looking into streamers who may have violated their rules and regulations and could be facing action for non-compliance, according to Gamactica.
The FTC is specifically looking at streamers who have not handled advertisements and sponsorships properly, and according to the report, a crackdown could be on the horizon.
“There are a lot of legal issues with celebrity streamers” attorney Stephen McArthur said. “These streamers NEED to make advertisement disclosures via the FTC guidelines. They should always use #ad hashtags. But they often fail. For example, Nina was paid $1 million to stream Apex for one evening and never disclosed it pursuant to the FTC endorsement guidelines. The FTC has their eyes on streamers are will start cracking down harshly soon.”
With the amount of cash flowing in the rising streaming industry, the FTC is now taking notice and, soon, necessary action.
“Video game streamers are absolutely on the FTC’s radar right now. If a streamer is paid to play, then they must disclose that with an #ad or #sponsored hashtag in a conspicuous place during the stream. Sponsorships is interpreted broadly by the FTC. If you received a free Steam key to play a game for free, then that required the #ad hashtag.”
Let’s face it, there is a boatload of money up for grabs in the industry and mainstream streamer such as Ninja are raking in millions for their streaming efforts.
Now, the onus is on streamers to get their act together to protect their brand and comply with FTC rules and regulations.
“Compliance is easy. Get in the habit of using the “#ad” hashtag on photographs, streams. Tweets, etc. This is effective to avoid FTC liability, McArthur advises.
“If you’re ever not sure whether or not you should disclose something, the streamer should ask herself “Would the viewer want to know this?” If the answer is “yes”, then they should disclose it pursuant to FTC rules.”
