Rig (Katakana: リグ, Rōmaji: Rigu) is an oil platform worker and Taekwondo practitioner made his debut in the 2012 title Dead or Alive 5, as a new character along with Mila. He serves as one of the main antagonists of the Dead or Alive series alongside his father and Raidou.

Little is known about him so far at first, other than that he is a Taekwondo fighter from Canada. A man who has worked on the oil platform since a young age, Rig does not know his real name or where he comes from. He lacks recollection of his past, though Christie seems to know him for some reason. Bass is one of his coworkers out on an oil derrick. In reality, Rig is the son of Victor Donovan and together they have apparently plotted the entire events of 5.

    • You see, at this point I didnt have anything new to bring here. Therefore, I agree with Ever's point, leading to "The Everlasting fra".
    • I guess it's just a combo of bad/lazy responses and supported by FRA. Like if someone had a wall of text with good points, just say FRA lmao
