Stage usage and story[edit | edit source]
Dead or Alive 2/Dead or Alive 2 Ultimate[edit | edit source]
Miyama is the stage where the player's character confronts the final boss, Bankotsubo (also known as Tengu). It is also where nearly all of the endings take place, with the exception of Tina Armstrong and Leon's endings.
Dead or Alive Dimensions[edit | edit source]
Chapter 2[edit | edit source]
After the events of the first tournament, Kasumi α arrives at the Mugen Tenshin Village to kidnap a crippled and comatose Hayate. Ayane finds her and before she can stop her, the clone transports her to Fallen Miyama where she summons Bankotsubo to fight Ayane.
After the second tournament, Ryu Hayabusa finds Bankotsubo at Fallen Miyama where the two battle and Hayabusa is victorious. After returning to Sacred Miyama, Hayabusa finds both Ein and Kasumi. The super shinobi suggests that if the two siblings fight, Ein will be able to remember who he truly is, and afterwards Ein indeed remembers his true identity as Hayate.
Immediately after this encounter, Genra, Kasumi α, and a brainwashed Ayane arrive to confront the two shinobi.
Final Chapter[edit | edit source]
In the final chapter, Helena Douglas has encounters with both Ein and Ayane at Fallen Miyama.
Description[edit | edit source]
Sacred Miyama is an enclosed forest clearing with rocky ground, surrounded by trees, large boulders, grass and other plantlife.
In Dead or Alive 2 Ultimate, Bankotsubo can change the seasons of the stage: at first, Miyama is a dark and frightening place but each time Bankotsubo strikes the ground, the seasons can change to either Spring with sunny weather, blooming tress, and a grassy ground dotted with many flowers; Autumn in which the leaves on the plants turn red and brown with a gray sky; and Winter, where everything is covered in snow. The seasons differ in the characters' endings; for example, it's Spring in Leifang's ending, while it's Winter in Zack's ending.
In Dimensions, Fallen Miyama – shown as a dark, hellish place – has been modified: the enclosed area is slightly bigger, and there is now a drop-off point where fighters can be pushed down a slope, hitting archways and a fire light, before finally falling over a cliff edge and hitting the ground below.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The location is alluded to in Nyotengu's promotional audio for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, where she describes herself as Miyama no Nyotengu, which translates to "the Female Tengu from [Mount] Miyama."
