Dead or Alive Roster

Rosters play a very important role in fighting games, especially those which have seen a number of new entries. Long-time fans of the series wish to know if their favorite character has made the cut or not this time around. The total number of playable fighters is always an important and discussed factor when it comes to fighting games, too. Too few, and the replay value is limited, too many, and it might mean the balance is poor or non-existent.

Thankfully, it appears as those Koei Tecmo has included a solid number of characters in Dead or Alive 6. In total, there are 26 characters, which does include the pre-order fighter Nyotengu, 25 for those who didn’t pre-order (although we’d imagine Nyotengu will be available to purchase at a later date).

The full Dead or Alive 6 roster is as follows:

  • Ayane
  • Bass
  • Bayman
  • Brad Wong
  • Christie
  • Diego
  • Eliot
  • Hayabusa
  • Hayate
  • Helena
  • Hitomi
  • Honoka
  • Jann Lee
  • Kasumi
  • Kokoro
  • La Mariposa
  • Leifang
  • Marie Rose
  • Mila
  • NiCO
  • Nyotengu
  • Phase 4
  • Raidou
  • Rig
  • Tina
  • Zack

As you can see, that’s a decent list of new and returning faces in Dead or Alive 6. Will there be more added as DLC, though?

Dead or Alive 6 Roster

As of writing, there is one confirmed DLC character that will head to Dead or Alive 6. This is none other than The King of Fighters 14 very own Mai Shiranui. As well as Mai Shiranui, however, another (as yet) unconfirmed DLC fighter is coming to Dead or Alive 6, also from The King of Fighters 14. We do know that both will be added to Dead or Alive 6 in June if all goes to plan. There is always the chance for more DLC characters in Dead or Alive 6, too.
