* EnemyChatter: The guards in Butcher Bay can sometimes be overheard talking about how bad they think their job is, demonstrating that they're not all just sadistic bullies.

* ScenicTourLevel: The opening of the game after the tutorial with you are being led into the prison, but can look around on your own. The developers said it was their tribute to ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}''.

* MeaningfulEcho: Riddick tells Johns about how "Statistically speaking, [space shuttle] landings are the most dangerous." as their shuttle begins to enter the atmosphere. [[spoiler: At the end cutscene of the the game, Riddick (who is now piloting the shuttle) he comes close to repeating the same line, but instead says "Statistically speaking, ''takeoffs'' are the most dangerous."]]

* ContractualBossImmunity: In the HD remaster of the game, counter-attacks don't work on melee combat bosses (i.e. Rust, the fight club opponents, and Abbott), although you can still interrupt their attacks with regular attacks as long as your timing is good.

* UnusuableEnemyEquipment: The Butcher Bay guards' guns are DNA-encoded, so trying to pick them up will only sent a jolt of electricity through Riddick's body. A prisoner in the first level learns this the hard way when it fries him.

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: After escaping Single Max, Riddick ends up in a sewer, where the game becomes a survival horror shooter, as you dodge aliens with a small amount of ammo, and no cover, as almost every wall has a door for them to come out of, leading to the best solution to be running like hell.
* UpdatedReRelease: The version of ''Butcher Bay'' that's included as part of ''Assault On Dark Athena'' has improved, HD graphics, as well as a number of subtle but meaningful changes to gameplay. The most obvious difference is significant tweaking to the melee combat to emphasize counter-attacks. OneBulletClips have also been added, as well as a new mech combat section in the middle of Double Max (this was in the original PC version (the "Director's Cut"), but not in the Xbox version). The final boss fight has also been somewhat improved. A comprehensive list of the changes is available [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/939612-the-chronicles-of-riddick-assault-on-dark-athena/49738144 here]].

* UpdatedReRelease: This game got two.
** The "Developer's Cut", released on PC six months after the Xbox version, adds a mech combat section in the middle of Double Max, a few more cigarette packs, and a developer's commentary mode unlocked upon completion. It also takes advantage of the machine's higher power, with higher resolutions and more advanced shaders.

* NoGearLevel: The majority of Double Max has you sneaking through heavily guarded areas without any firearms. You are able to purchase a stungun about 3/4ths of the way through, but it's not suited for straight combat, and useless against PoweredArmor (but it does stun them).
