* TheOldConvict: Riddick encounters an old prisoner in the Single Max section, who among other things asks Riddick what his first kill was like ("that's between me and him" being Riddick's answer), and offers Riddick a reward if he gets rid of a troublesome inmate. In a ShoutOut to ''TheShawshankRedemption'', he's named "Red".
