Marie Rose is the shortest female fighter in the Dead or Alive series, standing at only 4'10", with a small frame. She has long blonde waist-length hair that's held up in twin-pigtails with black ribbons and has light blue eyes.
She appears very childlike, and looks younger than her actual age. Her initial design is inspired by Gothic Lolita Fashion, displayed by her default costume which is a modified strapless maid dress, with arm sleeves. Her other alternate outfits are quite modest, with a lot of gothic and lolita implements; platform heeled shoes, black nail polish, gothic arm accesories, and frequent use of the colors black and white are recurring elements in her additional outfits. Her ribbons are also always black, with the choice of pointed or tied ribbons, or a black and white bonnet.
While her revealing outfits are toned down significantly, her outfits are mostly skirts, and aside from her bloomers in her signature gothic lolita dress, her undergarments are basically the same as the other girls. She also has yet to receive any swimsuits, which could be due to her toned down sex appeal.
From what little has been shown, she seems to be very energetic, cheerful, and gentle, which given her youth, fits well but she is shown to be fearless and gutsy unlike many youngsters around her years. She acts very childish, and doesn't seem to take losing lightly; she appears to be crying on the ground when she loses a match, but if watched long enough, she lifts her face out of her hands smiling briefly, before resuming her fake crying. Judging by this, she seems quite aware of her cute appearance, and shows it through her win poses and and taunts. As seen in her console release trailer, she states "Bigger isn't always better, you know", showing that she doesn't care about her lack of physical body development in comparison to the other females.
Marie is French in origin, and means "Of The Sea". Rose is the name of a flower which comes in a variety of colors, each color having a different meaning.
Marie seems to be respectful to Helena, referring to her as "my lady" in their tag team alliance when Marie calls her. In Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, their friendly relationship is made quite clear, as they are both seen giving a curtsy to their opponents in their tag introduction
While their exact relationship is to be revealed, in the latest version of Dead or Alive 5, called Last Round, the trailer shows her and Eliot performing a tag intro together. They may be either friends, or they may both hold romantic interests in each other

Marie Rose is a relatively easy character to use, and has a defensive and technical fighting style.
She has very good combo potential and is very evasive, juggling the opponent with relative ease, even heavier set characters like Bass. She can twirl around, similar to Rachel and follow up, or you can make her walk backward for an infinite amount of time. She can also roll forward for evasive purposes and attack, or she can jump on an unwary opponent and deliver a few punches in the form of throws.
Unfortunately, she does little damage, and her fairly weak throws leave much to be desired. She can also be juggled higher and longer because of her tiny stature. She can start very long combos, but she isn't very fast, and due to her somewhat slow kicks and single strikes being somewhat delayed, a faster opponent can quickly intercept her blows and interrupt her. She's also a perfect target to perform holds on, as her slower moves are easily predictable.
Dead or Alive SeriesEdit

Also Known AsEdit
- Wicked Lil' Servant - Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate
- Bloody Nocturne - Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade
- Marie Rose is the shortest fighter in the series, standing at 4'10".
- She seems to have some connection with Helena; while they have no special tag intros or throws, she will call her "Lady Helena" on occasion. She may be her maid, or perhaps another servant like Christie, because in the third tournament, Christie addresses her with "Lady Helena" as well.
- In Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate: Core Fighters, she is the most expensive character DLC, despite having only four costumes to start with.
- Marie Rose, Ayane and Eliot are the youngest characters in the series. Of these three, she is the oldest. (As her birthday, June 6, is two months before Ayane's birthday of August 5 and five months before Eliot's birthday of November 22.)
- Marie Rose bares a striking resemblance to Lili from the Tekken series. Marie Rose, like Lili is fond of Gothic Lolita attire, their fighting styles are defensive, graceful and they are often compared to each other by the fans in multiple types of media. She also bares a striking resemblance to Misa Amane from the Death Note series. Both characters have blonde hair in pigtails, Gothic Lolita attire, and childish personalities.
- If noticed Marie Rose's glasses share similarities to Kokoro's glasses.
- Surprisingly, despite her size, she's only average in terms of speed. This is mainly due to her somewhat uncordinated style of walking and standing, and could also be due to her thick heeled shoes.
- Also strange is that her holds are very high in damage, despite her low power.
