This article is for the musical theme "TehuTehu" and its subsequent update and remixes.
"TehuTehu" was later updated for the home console releases of Dead or Alive 2. Appearing in also the DOA2: Hardcore games, Dead or Alive 2 Ultimate, and Dead or Alive Online, the theme was once again used as the theme for Ayane.
It is this version of the theme that has been used again throughout the series rather than the original arcade version.

Tehu Tehu -DW SW MIX-
The theme was once again remixed, this time as "Tehu Tehu -DW SW MIX-", and appeared in Warriors Orochi 3. 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.
- "Tehu" (てふ tefu) is an old form of the modern word "chō" (ちょう) which is written with the kanji 蝶 - "butterfly", and like all words in Japanese with two consecutive kanji which are the same, the second kanji is usually abbreviated with 々. Therefore, 蝶々 (tefutefu / chōchō) literally means "butterfly, butterfly." The title is closely associated with the design of Ayane and describes her as a butterfly herself.
