Fights in Dead or Alive are based on a triangle system: strikes beat throws, throws beat holds, and holds beat strikes
When you land an attack of one type that beats another type, like landing a strike when an opponent tries to throw, that attack becomes a Hi Counter attack and does even more damage
A special attack meter new to the series - use the Break Gauge to execute new tactics, such as a Break Blow or a Break Hold
Fatal Rush is a powerful combo attack of up to four neatly animated punches and kicks making a first-time player look like an expert
There are special regions found in most stages that cause heavy damage when a fighter gets knocked into them
Danger Zones can range from basic walls to blockbuster explosions and careening cars. Some stages also have Danger Zones within the floors as well
