Dead or Alive vs Final Fantasy

I watched this movie a year ago through a friend when i went to her house but i haven't had a chance to blog it because it only have one episode. A while ago a friend of kim sent a link of a movie clip on his messenger. We started to watch the 15 min. mini movie with a very poor quality on youtube then i remember the website where i first saw it. So what is it the movie i am talking about? DEAD FANTASY!

Dead Fantasy is a fan made masterpiece of Monty Oum, a short action pack video combining characters mainly from Final Fantasy and Dead or Alive.

She puts up a fair fight against the two kunoichi, but ultimately needs help to even the odds.Rikku comes to Yuna's aid stealing Ayane's weapon but then returning it to keep things fair. She's extremely fast and reliable, protecting Yuna. Then Hitomi out of the temple they were fighting in utilizing enormous blocks of stone. She is given exaggerated strength to compensate for her lack of magical powers.Tifa appeared, saving Yuna and Rikku by dispatching all three Dead or Alive girls at once with her martial arts ability.


The action begins where the last installment left off with the arrival of Tifa and continues on to cover more of the temple until the temple itself is destroyed and the girls fight while descending the outside temple wall. Landing on a lake of lava the battle continues until the lake is frozen solid and the girls (now a total of 9 combatants) battle until they are seperated and sent in pairs to different locations.Rachel join the fray when it breaks out of the building limits to the outside environment, swinging her massive hammer with ease and deadly skill and the sudden appearance of Rinoa.Kairi entered the battle with her single floral Keyblade but then transformed into Valor Form and wielded two keyblades; the Oathkeeper and Oblivion, for the majority of the conflict

It is the first installment to show physical repercussions from the battle such as injuries and ripped clothing.

The one-on-one battles continue in Dead Fantasy IV.
