This article is for the musical theme "Ketsui no Toki" and its subsequent update and remix.
Since the Sega Saturn version, this version of the theme has been used again rather than the original arcade version.
The theme was used in both the Sega Saturn version of Dead or Alive and its Xbox-port Dead or Alive 1 Ultimate, as the theme for Kasumi in the Arcade Mode, and the theme for Kasumi's stage in the Survival Mode.
It later appeared twice in Dead or Alive Dimensions, the first time when Kasumi fights against Shiden in the Prologue, and the second time when Kasumi fights against Raidou for the first time. The theme is also optional in the Music Mode in Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, though it can be selectable for any character and gameplay mode.

The theme was later remixed as "ketsui no toki~pie-02 mix~" for the PlayStation remake of Dead or Alive, and was used as the theme for Kasumi in Tournament Mode, and the theme for Kasumi's stage in Versus, Survival, and Team Battle Modes.
- "Ketsui no Toki" (決意の刻) translates to "decision of opportunity".
