Pictorial Scenes, known as Venus Clips in Dead or Alive Paradise, and commonly known to fans as Gravures, are "glamour videos" of the Dead or Alive girls during their relaxation sessions in the Dead or Alive Xtreme sub-series. These clips are viewable in-game if the player selects the "Relax" option before visiting a location on New Zack Island.

Those scenes also appeared on Dead or Alive 5 Plus as downloadable content under the name "extreme private gravure movie", either paid or bundled with the collector's edition version of the game, making it the first appearance of pictorial scenes outside of the Dead or Alive Xtreme sub-series. In addition, gravure films for the characters Nyotengu, Marie Rose, Phase 4 and Honoka were also included as part of their Premier Sexy costumes for the Japanese versions of Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, acting as Day One DLC, and later released publicly as standard DLC on April 21, 2015 alongside the Premier Sexy set.

The name "gravure" comes from the term "Gravure Idol" - a young, Japanese woman who models for a range of media such as glossy men's magazines to idol movies, commonly associated with swimsuit modelling. They may also model in traditional Japanese costume, current fashions, and lingerie.

Use of ClipsEdit

Players can take pictures of the girls while they relax.

For the most part, these scenes are just to be viewed by the player for their own enjoyment. However, in Dead or Alive Paradise, Venus Clips must by collected to unlock certain mini-games and other parts of the game.

The videos whenever a girl "relaxes" in an open area of the game; if there is a character already in the area, you will not get an option for "Relax".

There are seventeen gravure scenes that you can do, as well as secret eighteenth one that all the girls get if they are staying in the Seabreeze Cottage and, on every even day, "Relax" in the Poolside area during the Evening session.

If a girl and her volleyball partner has a strong relationship, the player may get an option to "Be Friendly". These are videos of you and your partner together. There are no more than three "Be Friendly" videos per couple, and each video is area and time specific.

Instructions on how to use the camera in Dead or Alive Paradise.

If the partner has already done a gravure in the area that you go to, you can perform an "Imitation" of your partner's gravure, meaning you will copy what your partner did. These do not include any "Sun Tan spreading" gravures, nor any martial art practices.

There are several "Unknown" areas that pop up every-so-often, marked as "???". These are special areas that provide a different take on a similar area. The three "Unknown" areas are "Area outside Radio Station", "Tree Trunk Near Brilliant Jungle," and "Boat Near Tranquil Beach". Leifang and Ayane have two of these "Unknown" areas, while others only have one. The timing on these places are purely random, but generally show up more often if you are "Relaxing" through the vacation. In Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, they serve the same purpose. However, there is an additional place via the girl's bedroom.

Types of ClipsEdit

The actions performed by the girls during these times include lounging in the sun, strolling along the beach and splashing. They differ from place-to-place, and by the girl's different personalities. Some scenes may need to be unlocked as the game goes on. There are also some Venus Clips that can be performed by two girls if they have a strong friendship, are in the same location, and the player selects the "Be Friendly" option.
