* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Richard B Riddick's {{badass}}itude 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."

* PervyPatdown: The Crematoria guards pull this on Keyra. One of them slowly pats her down to find any concealed shivs, enjoying himself while doing so. She makes a surprise attack in response.

* StaringDownCthulhu: On the prison planet Crematoria, the guards release vicuous "{{Hellhound}}s" to feast on the prisoners. Riddick hides behind a waterfall until one of the hounds sniffs him out. Then he gets into a staring contest to assert his dominance, and because his silver eyes resemble those of the hound, it accepts him as one of the pack.

* ConvectionSchmonvection: You can easily survive right next to air that's heated to hundreds of thousands of degrees, so long as you're standing in the shade.

Added DiffLines:

* LowClearance: When the Mercs are riding the tunnel tram into Crematoria's prison complex to deliver Riddick, one of them is sitting on his legs telling Riddick how he's going to take his CoolShades once they arrive. Riddick notices the light fixtures on the low ceiling and lifts his legs so that the guy gets his head smashed in. [[WithFriendsLikeThese The other Mercs find this hilarious.]]

* GodzillaThreshold: The Necromonger threat has grown so great that some people decide to track down a SerialKiller who may be the [[LastOfHisKind only surviving member]] of a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy race of warriors]] to combat them. As the opening monologue puts it: "In normal times, evil would be fought by good. But in times like these, well, it should be fought by another kind of evil."

Added DiffLines:

* WeaponTwirling: Riddick does some fancy knife-twirling. Possibly a subversion of the usual usage of weapon twirling in fiction. Riddick picks up an unfamiliar knife, and proceeds to perform a complex twirl of the weapon while apparently studying it intently, then comments on what's wrong with the balance. The implication is he twirled it only to do a thorough check of the balance.

* [[CrapsackWorld Crapsack Universe]]: The events of ''Film/PitchBlack'' are the stuff of bedtime stories for young children. Furthermore, The Purifier argues that in this universe, life is itself against the natural order of things. Available evidence thus far seems to support his argument.

* [[InvincibleHero Invincible]] AntiHero: Riddick is practically omniscient in his plans, is never even touched in battle, and is never in any sort of danger until the BigBad fights him. This has been one of the criticisms of the movie. Every other entry in the series depict Riddick as more human and killable: ''Pitch Black'', the animated movie, the videogames, even a little flash short created for the ''Pitch Black'' website.
