Rig? What kind of name is Rig? Never mind.... What kind of outfit is that??? Is he homeless? ...he looks like he smells bad and needed a shower last week. Not that there's anything wrong with being homeless... (well, actually there is)... but anyway, maybe Rig should be looking for a better job instead of beating up on women from DOA and taking burly guys out on dates (the only DOA5 story mode reference I will ever make).

Now that I've made my fun... in fairness, Rig's Taekwondo fighting style is actually pretty cool. The DOA series lacked a TKD user until this guy showed up in DOA5, so these new animations are definitely welcome to the series. Naturally, Rig has a great selection of dynamic kicks, the typical "one leg up" TKD stance, and some cool, flashy, and hard-hitting throws as well. As far as his appearance goes, yeah... I don't like him at all. The vibe I get from him is a "poor man's Jin Kazama or Goh Hinogami" with that knockoff hoodie get-up he threw together from cloths that don't fit him anymore (or cloths he found on the side of the road). Rig's default outfit is just all over the place... like 3 different outfits awkwardly rolled into one. I think I'm being pretty generous giving him 3 out of 5.
