** The third movie answers this question when Riddick tells Johns' angry father why he did it. [[spoiler:He thought Johns was a [[DirtyCoward coward]] for being willing to sacrifice a child to survive, something he himself finds repulsive, thus confirming the Pitch Black example was ultimately being played fully straight.]]

* AgainstMyReligion: Imam refuses to drink liquor because he's a Muslim, even though its the only thing drinkable for the moment. Which is not well researched regarding Islam: Imam's position in the film is dire, stuck on a desert planet with no other food or water, and he has two children to look after. In Islam, if the situation is dire enough to threaten one's life by lack of halal food and clean (no alcohol) drinks, Muslims are permitted to consume any available meat (meat of a lizard, meat of a dog or pig) or drink alcohol, just to survive until help comes. This is, however, somewhat mitigated by the fact that the alcohol in question seems to be some form of moonshine, homebrew whiskey, or bathtub gin- which would only dehydrate the drinker more in the long run, and their high alcohol content would leave an unaccustomed drinker floored.

* ExactWords: Since no one besides the big guy can see in the dark, Johns tells Riddick to provide recon for the group, as they have no light and the eclipse has darkened the entire planet:
-->'''Riddick:''' Looks clear.\\
'''Johns:''' ''[after barely avoiding a bioraptor attack]'' You said "clear"!\\
'''Riddick:''' I said it ''looks'' clear.\\
'''Johns:''' What's it look like now?\\
'''Riddick:''' ... [[{{Troll}} looks clear]].

** It's established early that the planet they were passing was uncharted and because of that its mere existence caused the autopilot to exceed its tolerence due to the unexpected atmospheric change.
