A retired professional wrestler, Bass is also the father of Tina and as any normal father, he doesn't like his daughter using her sex appeal to gain her celebrity status. He enters the "Dead or Alive World Combat Championship" to protect his beloved daughter from getting hurt and at the same time he hopes to teach her about the tough reality of the World Combat Championship. Bass also goes by another alias: "Mr. Strong".

His wife Alicia passed away due to a disease, leaving Bass to care for his daughter by himself. Bass, driven by his own dream of having his child follow in his footsteps, began to push Tina through a rigorous training regimen. By the time Tina reached high school, she was an expert wrestler. She then went on to become one of the world's most feared pro wrestling competitors.

Bass is a character you can pick and then immediately proceed to make Hulk Hogan jokes (even if they're not funny). It's pretty simple.

It's a rule: Every hand-to-hand 3D fighting game must have a pro wrestler. Team Ninja decided to base Bass (lol) off of arguably the most legendary wrestler in American history, Hulk Hogan. Bass has some "tough guy" wrestling moves and has the classic "meat-head" wrestler personality. Not a very complex design. Some of his outfits are decent, but others are completely ridiculous... and quite oogly.

Bass is a decent design for DOA, especially since he isn't a girl with big boobs. Yeah, he stands out! He needs some friends though. All is other college wrestling buddys went on to be more famous wrestlers in other fighting games. Yeah, Bass seems a bit washed up. I think the appeal for this design was literally better in the 90's... come to think of it, Bass is kind of like a Virtua Fighter character in that way.  A mostly "meh" and cringy design, in my opinion.
