Ivan Drago (Russian: Иван Драго) is a fictional character that appeared as Rocky Balboa's rival and the main antagonist in the 1985 film Rocky IV. He is portrayed by Dolph Lundgren. Like the Clubber Lang character from Rocky III, the character and his catchphrases have gone on to inspire multiple mentions in popular culture, including in the Family Guy episodes "Brian Goes Back to College" and "Something, Something, Something, Dark Side", the Chuck episodes "Chuck Versus the Final Exam" and "Chuck Versus the Anniversary", and the film Disaster Movie. A poll of former heavyweight champions and prominent boxing writers ranked Drago as the third best fighter in the Rocky film series.
