Raidou was once known as the most dangerous and evil ninja in the Dead or Alive universe, and now he’s back to bring even more pain to those he faces off against. As a powerhouse, Raidou favors power-focused attacks, making use of his massive physique to slam opponents down while also unleashing a series of destructive strikes against them. He’s also able to mimic the attacks of others, mixing in his own moves like Rekku-Jinraisatsu and Tenho-Gorai-Sho.
