Now, if you'll all follow me,

I will conduct you to the others.

DOA combatants, your host,

Dr. Victor Donovan.

Welcome to you all.

Dead or Alive was created

by the late great Fame Douglas,

Helena's father and my very good friend.

Fame's will decreed this tournament,

and as of this year, marking her

My assistants will escort you to the lab

where you will now undergo

a complete physical.

Once you pass your physicals,

DOA begins.

Hey, this thing kind of reminds me

of a disco.

- Zack.

- Yo.

May I please remind you

of the importance of this procedure?

It's important, I know.

But you can't stop Zack, man.

You can only hope to contain him a little bit.

So, what do you got there,

some modern kind of dentistry chair?

- I'm sorry, sweetheart.

- It's okay.

Weatherby, have you got those

diagnostic reports I requested?

Thank you.

And how do our contestants look?

We got a strong group, sir.

They look really good.

Bring up Tina Armstrong.

I was impressed with her musculature.

Oh, God, this is gonna hurt.

Standard procedure, Miss Armstrong.

Everyone's going through this.

Are the nanobots broadcasting?

- Perfectly. All contestants are online.

All metabolic functions

and muscle movements

are being broadcast

and ready to download to computer.

Good. Start a contestant database.

We are up and recording.

This is Donovan to all combatants.

Welcome to DOA.

Fights can happen anytime, anyplace,

against anyone.

I select match-ups

based on computer analyses

of the most competitive scenarios.

The computer will broadcast

your opponent's image

to your ID bracelet.

No weapons are allowed in a DOA fight,

except the human weapon.

Get ready.

To win,

you must knock out your opponent.
