Hitomi is a Half-Japanese Half-German Karate practitioner. Her father and teacher is also the Karate master of Ein. She entered the third DOATEC tournament searching for her friend. She is also friends with Tina as the two are talking about Tina's future (she is hoping to be an actress).
Hitomi learns that Ein, who was amnesic, is actually the Ninja Master Hayate.
She is an honorable fighter and doesn't underestimates her opponents; she doesn't have an overconfident attitude. She treats everyone with respect and equality and tries to test herself against strong opponents. Her karate skills and training comes from her german father, whom she has been practicing under all her life.
Hitomi debuted in Dead or Alive 3 but was retroactively inserted into Dead or Alive Ultimate and unlockable if the player had a DOA 3 save file.
Hitomi is voiced by Yui Horie (Japanese) and Hynden Walch (DOA X2, English).
