The List, Part 15
Kasumi, DOA: Dead Or Alive Series
Kasumi and her female friends in the DOA series established themselves as the video game vixens of today, and it's easy to see why. Kasumi is a young ninja who enters and wins the first Dead or Alive fighting tournament. She's also searching for her crippled brother Hayate. After leaving her clan for a new question, she is declared a rogue ninja but that doesn't stop her from entering the tournaments or seeking vengeance.
Pros: She's a proven winner and one of the most powerful - and sexy - ninjas in the world.
Cons: She's wanted by her old ninja clan, and doesn't really have time for romance.
Was Played By: Devon Aoki of "Sin City" in the new B-movie adaptation of the video game series.

Tina Armstrong, DOA: Dead Or Alive Series
The other notable vixen from the DOA series, Tina Armstrong is a professional wrestling star and blonde bombshell who enters the Dead or Alive tournament to achieve a great level of fame. Her father tries to stop her by entering the tournament himself, but Tina beats him down. Unlike other female fighting characters, Tina relies on strength and powerful wrestling moves instead of speed. And she absolutely oozes sex appeal in between fights.
Pros: She's got muscles and strength that set her apart from other female fighters.
Cons: Well, she's a blonde pro wrestler that wants to be a serious actress, so you can figure it out.
Was Played By: Jaime Pressley, who's not a bad fit for Tina, though I can't really see her as a wrestling star.
