Main protagonist of the DOA series, Kasumi is a female ninja of the "Mugen-Tenshin" style. She was originally second-in-line for the title of clan master within the Mugen Tenshi. In an attempt to settle her brother Hayate's old scores, she became a "runaway" shinobi." Immediately after Dead or Alive World Combat Championship, she was taken captive by the Super-human Development Project. While held captive, DOATEC created two clones of her, Kasumi Alpha and Alpha-152, in an effort to create the perfect fighter. Shiden is her father and Raidou is her uncle.

Kasumi's original DOA1 appearance wasn't particularly exciting, but she was nicely "fleshed out" in DOA2 (in all aspects). ;) Actually, ever since her prominent role in DOA2, she's become quite popular. While she has some likeable features, I personality find her to be a bit bland. Her default "hip thrust" fighting stance resembles no authentic martial arts I know of... it's pretty sexual and kinda awkward... welcome to DOA. lol.

In comparison to other fighting game heroines, I think Kasumi is lacking. Her moveset has its cool moments, but if you ask me, nothing about the way she fights really makes a statement (or is even very ninja-like). Kasumi's personality has also been mostly dry throughout the series. As with other DOA girls, her main draw appears to be her bouncy boobs and over-sexualized outfits. One thing I can't get past is her facial rendering... why does she have the face of a 12-year-old? *sigh* Either it's poor rendering on the dev-team's part, or they're just pervs (at least they mostly fixed the problem in DOA5/DOA6). Finally, Kasumi's had some decent alternate outfits, but some rather boring ones as well. I never was a huge fan of her default outfit either... I think Mai does it better.
