—Rachel in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate


Rachel (Katakana: レイチェル, Rōmaji: Reicheru) is a fiend hunter from the Holy Vigoor Empire who debuted in the 2004 title, Ninja Gaiden, though made her Dead or Alive debut in the 2013 title, Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate.

Cursed by her demonic Fiend heritage, Rachel's goal in life is to hunt down and destroy all demons in existence. She met Ryu Hayabusa while on a crusade to slay her own twin sister, whose fiend blood had corrupted her human side. With Hayabusa's aid, she was able to accomplish her heart breaking goal and the two have been close friends ever since.

Early LifeEdit

CharacterEdit

AppearanceEdit

See also: Rachel's Costumes

Rachel is a tall statuesque woman with pale skin, platinum blonde hair, crystal blue eyes and a curvaceous and buxom figure. She is usually seen wearing a skin-tight black leather combat suit cut in ways that reveal her skin. She wears alot of revealing outfits in-game, including a revealing nurse dress, short-shorts and a crop top that exposes her tattoos, and a more modest blue business jacket and skirt. 

PersonalityEdit

Rachel is a battle hardened warrior who feels the desire to hunt down and kill all demons. Though she feels the need to put on a tough face when dealing with people, she is a kind and caring soul whose only wish is to help people. Her cursed lineage has caused her to become a Fiend Hunter, but she truly fights to protect others.

EtymologyEdit

Rachel (רחל) is Hebrew in origin, and means "ewe", which is a term used to describe an adult female sheep.

RelationshipsEdit

Ryu HayabusaEdit

A close friend of Hayabusa, who rescued Rachel from enemy capture multiple times while she was on a crusade to slay her own twin sister, who had become evil due to the fiend blood in her veins. While she is initially cold to Hayabusa, she slowly begins to trust him over time and the two formed a close friendship. Her respect and admiration for Hayabusa can be seen in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate when she says he's like having the strength of a hundred others.

MomijiEdit

Rachel may seem to have a mutual respect for Momiji and she forms working partnerships with her very often as she helps her out on her journey.

GameplayEdit

See also: Rachel's Command Lists

Rachel's fighting style is based from and is similar to Nicole-458: she utilizes brawler style attacks, but Rachel doesn't seem to use any formal martial art or style. She has a high damage output, and her throws do very good damage. She can also throw the opponent while they're in the air, opening Rachel to perform air combos. Her combos are damaging, but they are short, and relatively easy to hold and counter; her speed is also below average, making her easy to predict, as she lacks many moves, and her combo starters lack many follow up attacks that can confuse the opponents.

Her holds can help her win in extremely tense matches, and since most of them involve hitting the opponent away, they do downright horrific damage when her opponent is near a wall. She is recommended for all skill levels, due to her simplistic combos and damage output, and she overall is a fairly balanced character, with her speed and lack of move mix-ups being her only major disadvantages.

TriviaEdit

  • Rachel's fighting stance is similar to Sarah Bryant's stance.
  • Since Nicole-458 couldn't be included in Dead or Alive 5, Rachel was given a similar fighting style.[1]
  • Even though she was added to Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, it is unknown if she participated in the tournament or not.
  • Her light ground attack involves her grinding her heel into the back, crotch, stomach, or leg of the opponent; Strangely when it connects sometimes, it does damage despite her heel not physically touching the victim's body.
