The deadly girls are back in this version of Dead or Alive 5, to see who the true champion is of the Dead or Alive tournament. Each fighter has their own back story and reason to become the world's best fighter. Play as your favorite fighter once again in Team Ninja's: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate to overcome the odds and become a Fighter! Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate is Dead or Alive 5, but with new content and a different trophy list than the original game.
In terms of trophies/difficulty, this trophy list is much easier than the original Dead or Alive 5 trophy list. It can however, be a challenge to those new to the series or to novice players to the fighting game genre. This is why the difficulty is 4/10. However, it is doable. To those that are familiar with fighting games, this platinum won't give you much trouble. Unlike Dead or Alive 5, this trophy list does not require you to complete Survival on Legend difficulty, complete the story, or even grind out 1,000 online games. It's much easier and you'll obtain a majority of the trophies without even going out of your way to earn them. Although the platinum is much easier to obtain, you do have to put some effort into earning it. Your biggest obstacles are to play 100 online games, complete each lesson in tutorial mode to earn A Fighter is Born, and complete all lessons with a single character in Combo challenge to earn Unchallenged Champion. The rest of the trophies can be earned without much effort.
There is a minor nasty bug in the game that can cause you to have issues when on your platinum run: If you have your language set to any other language than English, the game can crash on certain parts of the game, especially lesson 40.9 of the Tutorials mode. Therefore, making it impossible to progress through the tutorial mode. There is a solution however, changing your language to English seems to resolve this issue. You can change your language settings from the main menu; under the "Options" menu, select "Language". From there, set the language to English in the "Menus" and "Voice" tabs. Also bear in mind that some of these descriptions for certain trophies are incorrect. This includes: clearing all courses in Arcade, Time Attack, and Survival as a tag team. You will only need to complete 1 course as a tag team to earn all of these trophies, so the descriptions for these trophies are misleading.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please bear in mind that both of the trophy lists for Ultimate and Last Round are almost identical. 47 out of the 48 trophies are the same. Because of this, this guide will cover both of these trophy lists. However, one of the trophies for each of these trophy lists are different. These trophies are: Ahhh, Memories (Ultimate), and Throwing In Together (Last Round). Depending what on title you're playing, you will only need to unlock one of these trophies individually depending on the game. Also bear in mind that both the PS3 version of Last Round and Ultimate share the exact same trophy list. Only the PS4 version of Last Round has the Throwing In Together trophy. This also means that you can stack this platinum three times (Ultimate PS3, Last Round PS3, Last Round PS4).
The version of Last Round might also be unplayable at the moment, due to the 1.01 patch. As of right now there is no known fix. However, I will add more info as this story develops. For more information on this matter, click HERE.
The version of Ultimate can also lose your saved data. There is no known workaround to restore all of your Tutorials, Combo Challenges, and Training Commands progress. However, there is a way to restore most of your stats again by backing up your save file:
- 1: Let the patch download and install.
- 2: After the game has asked if you want to upload your save to the in-game Cloud (it doesn't mater if you say yes or no), exit back to the XMB.
- 3: Go to the Save Data Utility and find the "Dead or Alive 5 Last Round" Folder, now delete everything that's in there.
- 4: Go to where-ever it was you backed up your saves to prior to downloading the patch and copy your save back to the Hard Drive.
- 5: Load the game again but this time when asked if you want to use your save with the PS4 version of Last Round, say "Yes".

For the purpose of this game being a fighting game, this guide will have icons of the fighting controls in the game. These icons will be used throughout the course of the Trophy Guide section:
= Punch ()
= Kick ()
= Hold ()
= Throw ()
+ = Both at once ()
+ + = All at once ()
+ = Both at once ()
Step 1: Miscellaneous run.
As weird as it may sound, your first step will be a misc run. Most of the trophies in the game can be earned with very little effort and time. During this step, you will earn a majority of the trophies. You will also play all of the modes that this game has to offer, and win at least one match in every mode. These modes include: Lobby match, Ranked Match, Arcade Solo & Tag, Time Attack Solo & Tag, Survival Solo & Tag, and Versus Solo & Tag; giving you 8 trophies to earn just by winning once (aside from a Versus and a Ranked match where you only have to participate). While earning these trophies, you will also go out of your way to trigger every "Danger Zone", as well as Attack and Block a "Cliffhanger" event. For more information on these trophies, refer to the Trophy Guide section of this guide.
Once you've earned most of these game mode type trophies, you will earn the remaining miscellaneous trophies, such as: viewing movies, replays, Move Details, Move Lists, Spectator mode, etc., as well as view 8 losing poses to earn Failure Teaches Success; and winning a match without taking damage for I Read Every Move.
Upon completing Step 1, you will earn:

Step 2: Training Mode & Fight Online 100 Times (Clean up)
During this step: you will play in "Free Training" mode for an hour to earn Training Hard. Not only will you earn this trophy in the process, but you will also accept 10 "Throwdown" matches in the process to earn both You Asked for It! and Anybody, Anytime, Anywhere while playing for an hour. This way you don't have to worry about waiting for a Throwdown invitation later down the line. It also adds to your 100 online games played. Be absolutely sure to set Set "Throwdowns" to "Accept" by pressing to change the throwdown settings from the Free Training menu to "Accept (SOLO MATCH)".
Once you're finished earning these trophies, you will play online 100 times to earn the remaining trophies in this step. Fighting 100 times is actually pretty easy compared to 1,000 in Dead or Alive 5. You can complete this in less than 2 hours with a boosting partner. To organize a boosting session, refer to the Trophy Boosting Thread (Read First Post!).
Upon completing Step 2, you will earn:
You Asked for It!
Anybody, Anytime, Anywhere
DOA5 Last Round Is My Life
Step 3: Complete all moves for a character in Command Training; and in Combo Challenge.
This step is where the game becomes more challenging to those that are new to fighting games. During this step: you will complete all challenges in Command Training with any character that you're most comfortable with; as well as in Combo Challenge. Because Tutorial mode forces you to play as Hitomi for most of the tutorial, I highly recommend that you play as her during both of these modes. Not only is she one of the easiest to finish both of these challenges with, but it will also make it easier for you to get more comfortable with her during your Tutorial run. Both of these modes aren't all that challenging, but that will need some perfect timing and knowledge. To see more information on both of these trophies, refer to the Trophy Guide section of this guide.
Upon completing Step 3, you will earn:
A New Challenger Appears!
Step 4: Complete the Tutorial Mode.
During this final step: you will complete the Tutorial mode. This will be the longest, and probably the most challenging step during your platinum run. There are a total of 42 different Tasks, as well as 217 total lessons. You cannot choose a character as some specific lessons force you to complete with a certain character. However, most of the tutorial requires you to play as Hitomi. This is why it's important to earn Exercise Newbie, and Unchallenged Champion as Hitomi during the previous step. By now you should be comfortable playing as her, and it will make this step much easier. Bear in mind that you can complete every lesson in any order that you want, and you also do not need to complete them all in a single session. For more information, as well as every lesson; refer to the Trophy Guide section for more details.
Upon completing Step 4, you will earn:
Your Education Begins Now
A Fighter is Born
Which will ultimately unlock:
DOA5 Ultimate/Last Round Master
