Dead or Alive 2 Move List - For Arcade and Dreamcast
FAQ by Jimbo []

This is the second part of my DoA 2 FAQ. This is the part with all the
moves for the characters. If you want all the basics and to learn how
to play DoA 2 go and look at my Basics FAQ, which can be found at...

You'll find it in the arcade section of the Site. That FAQ is just the
Basics and that's all this is where all the moves for each character
are found. Well let's get on with this FAQ then.

I. Intro
- Intro to DoA 2
- Revision History

This game is simply amazing in every way. From the super realistic
graphics to the great control this game has it all. All of this with
great gameplay and hot babes, what more can a guy ask for? Well mabey
more girls but I think they have enough.

Anyway this game is only in the arcade right now but it shouldn't be
for much longer with the US release date set for late February, early
March. Well here is a guide for the moves. I'll do as much as possible
now and then finish off with the US release on the Dreamcast and write
a new one.

[Note:] Really quickly if you have any questions, comments, or you have
some suggestions or more information go ahead and send it in. I say
this because it is an arcade game and it's harder to make sure what
your doing is exactly right, you know?

Well here is what the games systems are, but they seem to be encoded in
some secret Tecmo language!? Well mabey not but the words are too
complex for me.

Poly Count: 3,000,000pps
Frame Rate: 30/60fps
Lighting: 2 Infinite Lights, 2 Point Lights
Screen Effect: Motion Blur, Cross Dissolve
Voice: 22/44.1KHz APDCM
Seamless Loader/Player

Realtime Inverse Kinematics Class
C2 Interpolation
Stage Undulation Secondary Motion: Multi Jointed Accessory, Meshed
Morphings: Facial Animation, Hand Animation

ANY-way lets get a move on now...

[Version 1.3] February 26, 2000
Well here is another update to this guide, which will start to get big
soon I think. Well I did another character and some more so take a
look. I'll have more done tomorrow so don't fret. It will be done by
the time it's out on the Dreamcast in like 3 weeks now!!!

[Version 1.2] February 20, 2000
This is the third or second update because the last one wasn't posted.
Anyway this time I've done a few more things. I did a bit of
rearranging of things and I also added a cheat section and have done
all of Tina's move. Enjoy until the next update.

[Version 1.1] February 18, 2000
This is the first update to this guide and it comes with all of
Kasumi's moves. Enjoy for now I'm off to play RE3.

[Version 1.0] February 14th, 2000
This is the first version of what's going to be a HUGE FAQ, mainly
because of the very long character guides. It may take me a while to
finish because of school but I will do as much as I can during the week
and should do some big updates in the weekends. Well today I've only

II. Controls

The controls for DoA2 are simple at first glance but have a good set of
depth in them if you learn them through-and-through. Here is a quick
show of the setup of the arcade.
/ \ <-- Joystick
\__/ ___ ___ ___ ______
|| / \ / \ / \ |______| <-- Start Button
|| | | | | | |
|| \___/ \___/ \___/
| | |
Free -/ Punch \- Kick

Well that's it, just add another one to the other side of the machine
and you got a DoA2 setup. The layout may differ slightly but should be
similar in all different setups.

I can't do the Dreamcast controls as of yet, but once it's out on the
DC and into my hands I'll be sure to put them in.

Well these are the more advanced features of the controls, which aren't
moves though. All of these are very helpful and are easy to learn so
you should learn them in a second or two. Anyway here they are for you
to learn...

To block an attack just pull the joystick away from your opponent
and then just get hit. If it's a low attack you have to hold down
and back to block it. This does take a bit of strategy but not
much, just watch your opponents attack then you'll figure it out.

To do a simple jump just press the joystick upwards. This will
cause you to jump. Once you're in the air you can do air attacks
which will be different than normal.

This is like the Vs. series and the newer Tekken Tag games.
During a tag match you can change from one of your characters to
another. Anyway to do this all you have to do is press all three
buttons at the same time. It's better if you do it as your
opponent is being juggled or on the ground.

Sidestep, which is the easiest way to evade a move that you
aren't sure of to block is simple. All you have to do is press
either down, down, free for a sidestep toward the screen or press
up, free for one away from the screen.

This isn't just normal moving of course. This is basically where
you can walk around anyway in the stage limitations. All you have
to do is double tap the joystick in any direction then hold it
and press the 'free' button. This will then let you move anywhere
you want to.

This is a very in-depth thing, which I wasn't so aware of. Anyway
I got a bit of help and here's what I know. Counters in DoA 2 are
based on a sort of pinpoint hold system. This hold system is
where you have to pick the areas the move is going to go. Once
you know or think you do you can try one of the following for the
different types or attacks...

To counter a high-based kick or punch you have to press: Forward,
Up/Back, Free

To counter a mid-based punch only you have to press: Forward,
Back, Free

To do a pinpoint hold on a mid-based kick move you have to press:
Back, Forward, Free

Finally for the low-based attack you have to press: Forward,
Down/Back, Free

These hold/counters are the same for every character in the game,
although the animations will be different to their different
style of fighting. Also some characters can use their parries
from the first DoA, which I'll add in at a later time.

If you aren't very good at telling which move your opponent is
going to do (it's harder against a CPU player because they have a
good variety) you can counter the last move of a combo. This is
exactly the same but you might have to start a bit earlier but
not to early as to get hit from the move before it.

I'd like to give a shout-out to, YC Tan, thanks for the help in
the counters and a bit of the free movement stuff.

Well that's all I got for now so I'll move on again. If I figure out
something else or remember I'll add it in. If you have something that
should be added in to this section gives me a line at
and I'll chuck it in there.

This is the key for the move lists, which are below. This is where you
can find out what each thing means. Most of them are very obvious but
some are harder to figure out on your own.

f = Press Forward
b = Press Backwards
d = Press Down
u = Press Up
df = Press Down and Forward
db = Press Down and Backwards
uf = Press Up and Forwards
ub = Press Up and Backwards

F = Hold Forward
B = Hold Backwards
D = Hold Down
U = Hold Up
DF = Hold Down and Forward
DB = Hold Down and Backwards
UF = Hold Up and Forwards
UB = Hold Press Up and Backwards

P = Punch
K = Kick
S = Free

qcf = Quarter Circle Forward, Down, Down Forward, Forward
qcb = Quarter Circle Back, Down, Down Back, Back
hcf = Half Circle Forward, Back, Down, Forward
hcb = Half Circle Back, Forward, Down, Back

QCF = Hold Quarter Circle Forward, Down, Down Forward, Forward
QCB = Hold Quarter Circle Back, Down, Down Back, Back
HCF = Hold Half Circle Forward, Back, Down, Forward
HCB = Hold Half Circle Back, Forward, Down, Back

+ = And - press both buttons simultaneously
, = Then Press one after the other
[FU/FA] = On the Ground with Face Up and Feet Away from you
[FD/FA] = On the Ground with Face Down and Feet Away from you
[back] = Your opponent's back has to be facing you

Well there they are for now there will be more but I'll wait until I
start writing the move list.

I'm not sure who his secondary partner is though?

Once you go to the machine and pop in your money you just have to the
start button, which should be to the inside of the control setups. Once
you do you'll get a screen like this.
______________ ______________ ______________ ______________
| | | | | | | |
| Single | | Time Attack | | Survival | | Tag Battle |
|______________| |______________| |______________| |______________|

Well once you see that, you can just highlight the one you want to do
and start up. Of course some of this may not be here, I've heard that
the Tag mode must be activated and I'll try to get that info for all of
you with a new machine sitting in front of you.

Anyway here's a rundown of what you'll get depending on what you

This is kind of different for a fighting game. It's of course a
good way to get people to play with all characters. Anyway this
is where you pick 1 character only and fight in an Arcade style.
1-on-1, one after another, while getting a story on the way up!

Time Attack:
This is where you play up until you finish the game. You should
try to get the fastest time as possible. You should play the game
throughout the same order as the Single match only it's not a
story mode and just straight fighting until you get to the end.
Once you do finish the game you enter your name into the game
unless you don't get a good enough time.

This is pretty self-explanatory I would hope, right? Well this is
where you make your way through battle after battle fighting over
and over again. You only get one life bar but after you defeat
your enemy you can get some health items. I didn't get to far but
once you lose you put in your name and it goes into the scores.

Tag Battle:
This where most of the fun fights happen in DoA 2. You pick two
characters for your team and you fight. There's no story or
anything but you and you tag partner battle it out, Marvel Vs.
Capcom and Tekken Tag style, this is Sweet!!

Some modes aren't for 2 player and depending on when the second player
starts different choices will be available. There are only 2 modes
though that are possible in a two-player match.

The two are just a single match out of three and the second being a tag
match which is only one round in the small stage. If both people put
their money in at the same time and hit start either of the two people
can choose the type of match it is.

If the second player puts his money in after a match has already
started the challenger gets a choice on THIER half of the screen

A new challenger has entered, choose a battle type
_______________ _______________
| | | |
| Single Battle | | Tag Battle |
|_______________| |_______________|

After the challenger chooses which one he/she would like the other
person gets a choice.

Do you accept the challengers choice?

After that you can either go with it or choose the other fighting type
instead. Once both players are ready you will go to the character
selection screen, with all 12 characters. You pick your character/s and
then you start out the match. Once it's over the person who lost
leaves, [or puts in more money] and the winner goes on.

Depending on if you're the challenger or not you can choose. If you
aren't the challenger you go back to the same spot in the same
selection as you were before you were challenged.

If you are the challenger you go to the start of the Tag, or Single
depending on what type of 2-player match was just chosen. If it was
single you do a single if it was a tag you do the tag. You don't get to
re-choose your characters either.

Here are the a rundown of the 2-player modes and there differences.

In a 2-player single match you get a first to three bout, ala
Virtua Fighter. Through the match you have up to 5 rounds.
Throughout each round you may knock your opponent [or be knocked]
to a new part of the stage. Once the round is over you will start
in the same spot and not go back to the start.

Tag Battle:
In a tag battle match it plays out exactly like the single player
mode. Each person picks 2 characters and they fight in the
enclosed fighting arena. Once one person loses both characters
life bars his/her turns over and they have to put in more money.

That's the only play modes for 2-players, which are fine but the tag
battle is probably the more interesting out of the two IMO.

Well those are all the modes in the game for the Arcade. Now I better
put in a quick chart to state the differences between them and then out
a more explanatory of each one underneath.

Item | Single | Time Attack | Survival | Tag Battle |
Plots? | Yes | No | No | No
1 Player | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes
2 Player | Yes | No | No | Yes
1 Fighter | Yes | Yes | Yes | No
2 Fighters | No | No | No | Yes
Ending | Yes | Yes | No | Yes
Name Entry | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes

Well, I could put some more but I don't know any for now. If I get some
more I'll ad them later in another update. I don't think I need to say

V. Cheats/Extra's

There aren't many cheat's or extra's in the game this far but there are
a few for the arcade.

To get every one's second and third [only some] you just have to press
up or down depending on where the character is on the select screen.
This is the obvious one. To get Kasumi and Ayane's extra costume you
have to hold Punch and Kick while pressing start to choose your

You can change the camera movement of the replay and winning pose by
holding the Free button and moving around the Joystick. Also pressing
Punch and Kick zoom's in and Out the camera.
