Dead or Alive Wiki

In fighting games, Character Select, also called Character Select Screen or just Select Screen, is the feature where players decide which fighting character they will pick for battle.


In the Dead or Alive series, somewhat ironically, the character select screen had debuted in the second game, as the first one simply had Kasumi, and the position of player decided which character would be played. The character select screen usually has the following elements:

  • An arrow or another visual marker to show which character has been highlighted.
  • Artwork of the character to further indicate who has been highlighted.
  • The name of the highlighted character.
  • Stats of the highlighted character, which would include items such as weight, height, difficulty, individual stats, among other things.
