* OffstageVillainy: The Lord Marshal's extermination of the Furyans to try to cheat the prophecy that Aereon gave him, which is only alluded to in the theatrical cut. Averted in the extended cut, which actually shows him committing these massacres.

* SpiritAdvisor: In the extended cut, Riddick is visited several times by the spirit of a dead Furyan named Shirah to remind him of his heritage and his destiny: kill the Lord Marshal of the Necromongers, the man responsible for wiping out their race. She also appears in the opening and ending of ''VideoGame/EscapeFromButcherBay''.

* HaveWeMet: When the Lord Marshal meets Riddick and gives him the knife belonging to the warrior that Riddick has just slain, he wonders if they've met before and has him taken in for interrogation, confirming Riddick to be one of [[GenocideBackfire the last survivors of a race that the Lord Marshal had wiped out years before as a young warrior]]. The extended version of the film makes this literal: [[spoiler:the Lord Marshal is the one who attempted to kill Riddick as a newborn infant by strangling him with his own umbilical cord.]]

* YouWillBeSpared: The Lord Marshall promises Aereon that he might save her homeworld for last during the Necromonger purge across the cosmos if she gives him another prophecy on his odds to reach the Underverse. She promises him that he'll reach it pretty soon.

* CherryTapping: Riddick further establishes his BadAss nature by killing a guard with a teacup. He makes the rest of the guards run away when he threatens to follow this up by killing them with a can key.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: It is claimed that during nighttime, Crematoria's surface cools down to -300 degrees Celsius.
** Read, "Crematoria's surface cools down to -26.85 Kelvin." Keep in mind that Absolute Zero is the lowest you can go, and while there ''is'' such thing as negative kelvin in RealLife, [[http://www.mpg.de/6776082/negative_absolute_temperature it would have been hotter than anything else]].

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Richard B Riddick's badassitude stems not only from his fighting skill but also from his deductive reasoning. It is hinted that the entire series of events that transpired at the Crematoria prison was a GambitRoulette masterminded by Riddick. The Crematoria prison escape begins with Riddick giving a detailed description of what the guys currently escaping the prison are doing, and concludes by saying it's a good plan. When a mercenary who didn't get out asks him how he knows their plan, he replies, "It was mine."

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Jack/Kyra during the TimeSkip between films. She ran away to search for Riddick and signed up with a bunch of mercs, only to be enslaved, with a heavy implication as to [[SexSlave what kind]]. Made worse in that she was only ''twelve'' at the time! Riddick is understandably ''[[BerserkButton pissed]]'' to learn this, as well as furious at her for ignoring his single instruction when they parted ways;

* DarkMessiah: The Lord Marshall is worshipped by the Necromongers with almost religious reverance. He is the half-dead post-human who has pilgrimaged to the Underverse and returned a holy GalacticConqueror. His rule is absolute and he is destined to lead his people beyond the 'Threshold' to the alternate realm, although he's not immortal; the post is permanent until the Lord Marshal either dies of old age or [[KlingonPromotion is killed by an aspiring commander]], and a new Lord Marshal succeeds him.

* HumanAliens: The Furyans themselves are the descendants of Human colonists who settled on Furya centuries ago and have undergone mutations in order to adapt to the hostility of Furya, which is said to be a high-gravity death world. Over the course of countless generations, the Furyans have evolved into a Proud Warrior Race, and because of their adaptations, are stronger, faster, and tougher then baseline Humans, not to mention being much more cunning and vicious. It also seems that the Elementals themselves are another example of Human Aliens.
** Even among Furyans, Riddick is considered TheAce for his ''talent'' for escape.

** The Necromongers themselves are incredibly resistant to pain and damage, as their indoctrination renders them unaffected by damage to varying degrees. Dame Vaako herself managed to apply makeup to her eyes using a burning pencil, which by all means would hurt like a bitch, but did absolutely nothing for her. One of the Necromongers' best fighters, Irgun; had a knife embedded in his back from a previous kill, which did nothing to impede his movements or his ability to fight.

Also played with in that the Helion system has other inhabited planets which they haven't conquered, but that's treated as a formality.



* SuperSpeed: A nice side-effect of being Holy Half-Dead. The Lord Marshall himself is able to cover great distances in a short amount of time, even while wearing a full suit of plate armour and maille. Having SuperStrength is rather helpful in those respects as well. In order for Riddick to defeat the Lord Marshall, He had to be quicker thinking then his adversary.
** The Lord Marshall also appears to be able to literally be in more than one place at a time, rendering him intermittently invulnerable. Riddick's killing blow is only possible when circumstances force the Lord Marshall to momentarily be entirely in one place.
