Hayate in NG3:RE[edit | edit source]

Possible Timeline dates[edit | edit source]

So everyone knows that both the Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive series share the same universe, but thanks to a recently released game we know that the Fatal Frame series also takes place in the same fictional world. Thanks to this and the fact that the events of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water happen in 2006 to the daughter of the main character of the original Fatal Frame (which happened in 1986), and the fact that all Fatal Frame games feature dates, we can determine a possible timeline with dates. (Plus there is one other mainline Ninja Gaiden game that features a date; the Ninja Gaiden arcade game, so we can add that.)

Here's the timeline:

Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse -> Fatal Frame -> Fatal Frame II: Deep Crimson Butterfly -> Fatal Frame III: The Tormented -> Ninja Gaiden —> Ninja Gaiden Shadow —> Ninja Gaiden Sigma —> Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword —> Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 —> Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge —> Ninja Gaiden X —> Ninja Gaiden Episode I —> Ninja Gaiden Episode III: The Ancient Ship of Doom —> Ninja Gaiden Episode II: The Dark Sword of Chaos —> Ninja Ryukenden —> Dead or Alive Dimensions -> Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water -> Dead or Alive 5 -> Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z
             1980                            1986                      1988                                                             1999              2000                     2001                                              2002                         2003                                                                                                                                                                                                 2003-2006                           2006                         2007                               

Of course, this timeline makes many assumptions and leaps in logic. It also retcons various things, such as having each Dead or Alive Tournament happen in a separate year. (Annual tournament makes much more sense than 4 tournaments in a year, really.)

Of course, the ages of some of the characters would have to be adjusted for this to makes sense, like so (but it'd also kinda fit, since Ayane would be about the same age as most of the main characters in the game):

         Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse -> Fatal Frame -> Fatal Frame II: Deep Crimson Butterfly -> Fatal Frame III: The Tormented -> Ninja Gaiden —> Ninja Gaiden Shadow —> Ninja Gaiden Sigma —> Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword —> Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 —> Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge —> Ninja Gaiden X —> Ninja Gaiden Episode I —> Ninja Gaiden Episode III: The Ancient Ship of Doom —> Ninja Gaiden Episode II: The Dark Sword of Chaos —> Ninja Ryukenden —> Dead or Alive Dimensions -> Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water -> Dead or Alive 5 -> Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z
                      1980                            1986                      1988                                                             1999              2000                     2001                                              2002                         2003                                                                                                                                                                                                 2003-2006                           2006                         2007
