When DOA2 first came out, I was hoping to be "wowed" by the new characters. While a "pretty" character... Helena as a new fighting game character didn't impress me on her debut. To me, she seemed to be marketed primarily as yet another DOA blonde with big boobs. On the bright side, she has evolved fairly well over the years, acquiring some decent new moves. Helena's moveset does seem to take quite a bit of inspiration from Ling Xiaoyu of Tekken... the most basic comparison being Helena's Bokuho stance and Ling's Phoenix stance. Helena isn't a total copycat, however, but I'd say she looks slightly less natural performing said moves. Some of Helena's attacks lack impact and "oomph," and her overall style is a bit too "bird-like" for my tastes. Besides ridiculous amount of arm-flapping, Helena does have some cool kicks and throws.

Visually, her default outfits are again... "pretty"... but lack excitement and coolness, in my eyes. Helena's face also seems to have ZERO expression most of the time. She's plain. And no, her silly Sephiroth / Aeris bangs don't magically make her cool. Overall, Helena is kinda redundant in DOA and seems a bit forced as a design, all around.
