Honoka is a young pink-haired schoolgirl and a new character from the Dead or Alive franchise. Having been raised by her gentle grandmother when she was a little orphaned girl, she is a sweet, easygoing kind of cute girl, but when she sees a fight, she cannot contain her excitement - or the mysterious power surging within her. Honoka has a strange knack for instantly learning any fighting move she sees. She kept this power hush-hush, but has been itching to test it out in secret. She was voiced by Kira Buckland.
Her victory quotes indicate she doesn't even know the origin of her powers and seeks to find out about it. In some victory quotes, she also gets apologetic and asks if they can stand up while rushing towards them to offer them a hand, implying that while she does want to test her powers out, she doesn't want to injure or cripple people with them. However, she isn't above lightly teasing people, as evidenced by the Venus Festival when she, when Marie Rose angrily reacted to Honoka talking with the Owner, pointed out that Marie Rose just said she wanted to try out the cute cotton candy.
Although she is very eager for a challenge and a fight to the extent that she can't help herself, even she has her limits, as her losing quote has her whining that her opponent is too strong. She also seems to be quite naive and oblivious. This can be seen when she wins a tag match with Ayane, she'll make the mistake of asking if Ayane's a ninja, much to the latter's disbelief and annoyance. This is further seen in the Japanese version when she makes an accidental pun that angers Marie Rose, due to her not knowing that Marie Rose is jealous of Honoka because of her "assets".
Although none of the details have been released yet - such as how long they've been friends, how they met, or how they interact with each other - Honoka is friends with Marie Rose, even sharing a special interaction as well as being Tag Battle partners where Honoka requests to Marie Rose for a practice round. In addition, when winning a tag battle with Marie Rose, she does Marie Rose's signature pose with her. In Xtreme Venus Vacation, they seem to get along well enough, even napping together during a sleepover.
