This article is for the musical theme "The Fist of TAIKYOKU Blows up" and its subsequent update.

Throughout the Dead or Alive series, "The Fist of TAIKYOKU Blows up" has been used as a theme for Lei Fang.

Arcade versionEdit


The original "The Fist of TAIKYOKU Blows up" theme, composed by Hideyuki Suzuki, first appeared in the original arcade version of Dead or Alive as the theme for Lei Fang.

Console versionEdit


"The Fist of TAIKYOKU Blows up" was later updated by Makoto Hosoi for the Sega Saturn version of Dead or Alive.

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 Lei Fang in the Arcade Mode, and the theme for Lei Fang's stage in the Survival Mode.

It later appeared in the Japanese Dreamcast version of Dead or Alive 2 and the DOA2: Hardcore games as the theme for L's Castle. 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.

TriviaEdit

  • "Taikyoku" is in fact the Japanese pronunciation of taiji quan, the martial art that Lei Fang practices.
