"I'm no pushover, sweetie."
—Sarah in Dead or Alive 5

Sarah Bryant (サラ・ブライアント, Sara Buraianto) is a character from Sega's versus-fighting series Virtua Fighter.

A college student and a practitioner of mixed martial arts, due to a new partnership between Tecmo Koei and Sega for Dead or Alive 5, Sarah featured as a guest playable character along with Akira Yuki and Pai Chan (followed by Jacky Bryant in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate).



Sarah had become suspicious of the circumstances surrounding her brother Jacky's horrible accident in the 1990 Indianapolis 500. While investigating this accident, a mysterious group called Judgment 6 kidnapped and brainwashed her. However, J6 could not control her completely for long and she failed to carry out her orders.

Although she was finally rescued by Jacky, all of her memories had been wiped clean. Occasional fragments of her memories began to return as she lived her daily life and she found that they returned far more often during her training. She fully regained her memories but still felt a twinge of uncertainty. Even though she has recovered, she remembered all the bad things she had done while under the Organization's control.

Role in Dead or AliveEdit

The only time Sarah appears in story mode Zack confuses her for Tina, making the wrestler angry and leading to a fight between the two women. It is unknown who won the fight or if Sarah joined the tournament, although it can be stated that Sarah signed off the tournament because her fight with Tina dissatisfied her.



Sarah is a slim, athletic, young woman with pale skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes. Her face is heart-shaped, her eyes are narrow, and she has full lips. Her hair extends to the middle of her back but it is tied up in a high ponytail so it only reaches her shoulders.

She wears her trademark costume from Virtua Fighter in Dead or Alive 5: a shiny, dark blue bodysuit with exposed arms, a high collar, and tied up with a silver zipper up the length of her torso. The outfit also includes a belt, black boots, and grappling gloves.

Personality Edit

Sarah has changed considerably ever since her brainwashing. She is an extremely confident and optimistic individual with little to no fear at any given situation and often masks her feelings with a smile. She also enjoys fighting and will never hesitate to talk down on opponents who fail to meet her expectiations. She does show her more caring side however as she is willing to put down J6 for all the terrible things they have done to both her and Jacky.


Sarah means "lady" or "princess" in Hebrew. The surname Bryant is of Old Breton-Irish origin, and derives from the Celtic personal name "Brian," believed to contain the element "bre," meaning hill or "brigh," strong.


Tina ArmstrongEdit

The official relationship chart for Dead or Alive 5 suggests that there will be a rivalry between Sarah and Tina Armstrong. However, the reasons behind the rivalry are currently unknown.[1]

Jacky BryantEdit

Sarah's overprotective brother. She was rescued by Jacky after Virtua Fighter 2, but most of her memories are wiped clean until she's fully recovered at the end of Virtua Fighter 3. Sarah is also deep care for her brother like he is to her. Both also falls under a threats of J6 if the siblings didn't join the Virtua Fighter tournament, starting Jacky, about his racing sponsors, leading Sarah to follow his brother, even thought she's also one of J6's targets.


Details on how Sarah plays have yet to be sorted, although it is likely that her commands are basically unchanged from Virtua Fighter. In the Virtua Fighter series, her fighting style includes elements of Savate, Taekwondo, and Karate with characteristics like Flamingo stances and grappling.

Virtua FighterEdit

Sarah first appeared in the 1993 arcade title Virtua Fighter and was part of the series' original fighter line-up, which, at the time, only included eight characters. Since then, Sarah has appeared in every installment of Virtua Fighter and has become one of the most popular characters in the series.

She also appeared in the Virtua Fighter anime series. Sarah is kind and gentle, from a wealthy American family. She has a flying squirrel named Alexander for a pet and travels with Jacky in their RV. Whenever Jacky participates in any Formula One contest, Sarah helps out by doing racing queen duties. She is later kidnapped and brainwashed by Eva Durix to be used as a basis for creating a "Perfect Soldier," Dural. In the series, she first has a crush on Akira Yuki but later has feelings for Kage-Maru.

Sarah also appeared in the Sega Saturn title Fighters Megamix, with the entire Virtua Fighter 2 cast. A younger version of her, from Virtua Fighter Kids, is also an unlockable playable character.

  • Zack mistook Sarah for Tina Armstrong, as he only saw the woman from behind. This could be an easy mistake to make, as both Sarah and Tina are both athletic women with blonde hair and blue eyes. The only major difference between them is hair length and clothing.
  • Sarah is unlocked after completing Tina's chapter in Dead or Alive 5's story mode.
  • Her trademark "VF Suit" also appears in Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA 2nd as a Module for Vocaloid Megurine Luka.[2]
