Training Mode, also known as Sparring Mode, is a gameplay mode found in all Dead or Alive games.
In this mode the player "trains" and developes their fighting skills against a placid opponent that can be programmed to either stand still, block, counter or attack at varying degrees of difficulty.
The Training Mode has no time limit, nor can any characters be "Knocked Out". The primary function of this mode is for the player to learn and practise each character's moves to be implemented in other modes such as the Survival Mode or Story Mode.
- Ayane first appeared in the Sega Saturn version of Dead or Alive as the "training dummy" players train against.
