Whilst the game and animation were very well-received sequels, the same cannot be said for movie sequel ''[[Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick The Chronicles of Riddick]]'', [[BrokenBase which has strongly divided the fanbase]]; not only was it widely panned critically, it still maintains some fans despite flat out [[FanonDiscontinuity disownment]] from some. Additionally, 2009 saw a second game, named ''[[VideoGame/AssaultOnDarkAthena Assault on Dark Athena]]'', released to act as a sequel to ''Butcher Bay'' and as a second prequel to ''Pitch Black''. Like the movie sequel, ''Dark Athena'' had a great standard to meet, [[ToughActToFollow and is generally considered to have fallen short]] (though still good in it's own right).

Be ''very'' afraid.

* SamePlotSequel: ''Riddick'' creators David Twohy and Vin Diesel expressed in interviews that they specifically wanted to avoid this when they made ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'' by not simply doing a remake of ''Film/PitchBlack'' only with bigger and meaner monsters. However, the sequel was then criticized for veering ''too far'' away from its premise by placing Riddick - a knife-happy criminal - in a ''Star Wars''-esque space epic as the last hope of saving the universe from thrall of an evil empire. The next movie, simply titled ''Film/{{Riddick}}'', then played this straight. Once again Riddick is stranded on an uninhabited planet before nightfall arrives and the whole planet is swarmed with hostile aliens, requiring the humans to retrieve energy batteries to power a ship and escape.
