Dead Or Alive 5 Ultimate Tier List ver 1.04

Dead Or Alive 5 Ultimate Tier List ver 1.04

Written by: SHO 6 0 on March 10, 2014.
A few weeks ago I promised a tier list for Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate that was delayed by the version 1.04 patch which I've taken into consideration for the tier list I'm presenting to you at this time. Since DOA's fighting engine is based round it's counter hold mechanic this tier list will be broken down into categories labeled beginner, beginner- intermediate, intermediate, intermediate-advanced, and advanced instead of high or low.

The beginner tier is comprised of the characters that are easy to use but have limited moves or options.

  • Ein
  • Eliot
  • Leon
  • Rachel

These characters have more options than the characters in the previous tier but are still fairly easy to use.

  • Mila
  • Zack
  • Hitomi
  • Momiji(who may be intermediate-advanced as well)

This tier has the majority of the games cast which means these characters have a good amount of options, and moves but posse a slight challenge to master.

  • Tina
  • Kokoro
  • Bass
  • Pai
  • La Mariposa
  • Alpha-152
  • Akira
  • Christie
  • Sarah
  • Jacky
  • Kasumi
  • Ayane

The characters at this level have clear advantages of the tiers that proceed them in terms of moves and versatility but are a lot harder to use.
  • Brad Wong
  • Rig
  • Helen
  • Jann Lee
  • Hayate

The advanced or "top" tier characters are the most unorthodox to use but posses the best defensive and spacing options. Some even have set ups the cannot be blocked or countered.

  • Bayman
  • Gen Fu
  • LeiFang
  • Hayabusa

Character knowledge is very important in Dead or Alive so this tier list is subjective because in right hands every character can a force to be reckon with.
