Rhythm Doctor's arm, as it appears in Rhythm Doctor.
|First appearance||Rhythm Doctor (2012, web demo; 2021, public beta)|
|Company||7th Beat Games|
In Rhythm Doctor, the player controls an ambiguous doctor whose only visible trait is their sleeved arm and hand. They are an intern at Middlesea Hospital as part of the Rhythm Doctor program, an experimental healthcare initiative in which doctors work remotely to defibrillate patients in sync with their heartbeats, typically every seventh beat. Each patient they work with has a unique illness affecting their heartbeats based on complex music theory, which often affects the doctor's rhythm and pushes them to master their timing.
Rhythm Doctor is one of the Assist characters in Fraymakers, and they will be among the twenty Assists available at the launch of its Early Access release. When called upon, their hand and a button appear over the opponent's head, and seven beats are played. On the seventh beat, Rhythm Doctor presses the button, knocking the opponent downward if not dodged.
- Rhythm Doctor is the first Assist in Fraymakers funded through stretch goals to be revealed, as well as the only one revealed during the game's Kickstarter campaign.
- Rhythm Doctor was implemented into Fraymakers after Jenny Crowe of 7th Beat Games contacted Team Fray without the knowledge of her peers.
