ooo Introduction ooo
-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

Welcome to my fifth FAQ for gamefaqs.com. My neighbor and friend, 
Jonas, got his XboX yesterday(11/26/01). Amongst the game he had, 
there was one called "Dead or Alive 3". I knew it was multiplayer, and 
I  played it with him. I totally loved the game!. So, I started to 
investigate about the character I liked the most, Ryu Hayabusa. The 
game is pretty good, specially if you've friends to play with. I like 
the most the team battles, but that's me. It has impressive graphics 
and a responsive control(even though X's control feels like cheap 
plastic). The sound its not the best, in my opinion. Anyway, its a 
pretty  cool game you should try(if you have an X).

Ryu Hayabusa is a ninja, friend of Hayame, who in the last tournament 
brought down Bakotsu(the Tengu of destruction) who brought chaos to 
the world. After doing so, he thinks about taking a time to rest. 
However, he can't now that the world is being menaced by Genra, a 
being created by DOATEC.

Hyabusa is a great fighter. He's a jack-of-all-trades, as he has good 
speed, huge power, speed and several moves and throws that are amongst 
the more powerful and fast-health-draining moves in the game. 
Basically, Ryu's most powerful combo attacks are those that make use 
of his deadly punches and kicks. He has very strong moves that can be 
combined with an environment item or a fall. He can also use Ninja 
Gaiden moves( cough neckthrow cough). I personally like to use 
"leaping" combos on stages with falls. I love to see the opponent 
slaughtered and then falling down into next year. My friend and I 
agree that he's the best(or in my case, "versatile") character in the 
game, as he's fast, powerful and cool.

-------------------------------------
<--+--> Hayabusa in a TagTeam <--+-->
-------------------------------------

Hayabusa can be tagged with Ayame and Kazumi, even though I prefer 
tagging him with Bass. I heard that Tina is a good partner due to the 
throws they can make. I select Bass because... yes. I have no real 
reason to do so. You can also tem him with Gen Fu, Bayman and Leon. 
Jan lee is another option, but I go for Bass, really.

ooo Basic tips ooo
-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

<---+---> Throwing <---+--->

To throw an opponent, get near him and tap the A button. If the enemy 
is crouching, press down in the D-Pad and then the A button to throw 
him. Throwing is very useful, specially in levels with falls. However, 
they, alone, can deal some good damage. Every time you can, use this 
movement on your opponent.

<---+---> Blocking <---+--->

To block, press and hold the X button. That way, you'll stop enemy 
moves or at least decrease its power. Remember, when you are standing 
and blocking, only upper-body moves, such as those directed to the 
chest and head, may be blocked. Any lower-body move will be received. 
To block low-body moves, press down in the D-Pad and press and hold 
the X button to negate/less the movement power. There are certain 
moves that cannot be blocked, while others will stun you if you're in 
the blocking position.

<---+---> Countering <---+--->

Moves can be blocked. However, to block them, you must press certain 
combination of buttons before the move is executed, you'll be able to 
block them. The combinations depend on what kind of move the enemy is 
executing, either low, middle or upper body moves. Let's see the 
buttons combinations:

High attacks: Diagonal Up+back+X
Middle attacks: Back+X
Low attacks : Diagonal down+back+X
Jumping attacks: back+X
