Pai Chan made her debut in Sega's Virtua Fighter and reappeared in the subsequent sequels. Pai Chan is considered as one of the most popular characters in the series. In the games, Pai is a Hong Kong martial arts movie star and was admired by everyone (more notably, Eileen, a character that debuted in Virtua Fighter 5). She was trained at a young age by her father, Lau Chan, and her mother worked to support the family. However, Pai's mother died from overwork and ever since then, Pai blamed her father for it. She participated in the World Fighting Tournaments to prove her skills to her father.

Pai Chan & Leifang's natural rapport in their Kung Fu styles.
Masoulchild85Added by Masoulchild85

Pai Chan shares a natural rapport with Leifang based on their Kung Fu and nationality. Pai Chan and Leifang also share the same determination and rivalry with their male counter parts to prove a sense of accomplishment (Pai for her father, Lau, and Leifang for Jann Lee). Both Chinese females, share the same determination, have become strong Kung Fu practitioners in their own right, and indeed have accomplished a great deal (Leifang saved a child from a gang; Pai Chan is an admired Kung Fu prodigy by Eileen of Virtua Fighter).

In Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, they become an official tag team with animated tag moves, even gaining one new pre-animation sequence of a Kung Fu interlude and another winning sequence where Pai Chan does a Kung Fu pose and Leifang stands directly behind her in her trademark "innocent" stance with hands behind her back.

Akira YukiEdit

She and Akira knew each other since the first Virtua Fighter tournament and sometimes always fought together. Both being paired up in a recent crossover.

  • Pai Chan was revealed alongside Gen Fu, with screenshots of her shown fighting against him. This was probably a reference to Pai's rivalry against her father, Lau Chan, in the Virtua Fighter series.
  • Unlike Akira and Sarah, Pai doesn't appear in Dead or Alive 5's story mode (another one is Jacky). She also doesn't have a special tag throw with any of the Dead or Alive characters until in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. However, she does have a special tag intro and win pose with Leifang since the original game.
    • In Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, a Tag Throw with Leifang was added alongside a new winning pose.
  • To unlock Pai in Dead or Alive 5, you must obtain 100 titles.
  • In Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax where both Akira and Pai are the guest bosses, Pai's new voice only be heard as an alternate damaged during hit, while others remained the same as the previous game she appeared (excluding in Project X Zone is new) due to her set as assist character, and as for Akira received a full new voice since Project X Zone due to him set as playable fighter.
