Nikita, better known as "Niki", is the newest girlfriend of Zack. They met in a casino after the Dead or Alive 3 tournament, when Zack won a large sum of money that allowed him to buy an island which he named after himself. He invited most of all the females he remembered from the last tournament to his island, under the false pretense of holding another tournament. The women arrived and after finding out the truth, namely that it was all a big hoax, they decided to make the best of the situation by spending their vacation there. After two weeks when the women have left, Zack and Niki remained alone on the island. However, a here-to-fore inactive volcano erupted, and Niki decided to abandon Zack and escaped using his jetpack. Zack survived the volcanic eruption but his island was completely destroyed. However, the two have made up and become a couple again during Dead or Alive 4, as they were seen robbing an ancient tomb and escaping in a truck filled with gold, along with a horde of angry skeletons in tow. Niki is Zack's lucky charm (Lady Luck) and he takes her everywhere with him, going as far as naming a beach on his island's eastern shore after her. Niki also gives the player special points in Dead Or Alive 4. Nikita is based on Plenty O'Toole, Bond girl and a character from film version of Ian Fleming's James Bond novel Diamonds Are Forever. She was played by Lana Wood, younger sister of Natalie Wood. Nikita's creator, Takanobu Itagaki is a big fan of James Bond films.
