* {{Narm}}: Count how many times Riddick takes his goggles off in dramatic moments in ''Chronicles''. It's nearly impossible not to start giggling after a while. The odd part is, in ''Pitch Black'', it's revealed that his night vision makes his eyes sensitive to light so he needs the goggles. In the sequel, this weakness is apparently gone since he whips them off every other scene, including one in which he gazes at explosions.

* MarySue: Creator/VinDiesel has been the driver behind the entire series and the character of Riddick and although he's a fugitive and murderer (with a heart of gold) does seem to be impossibly good at everything he does. He's a [[GeniusBruiser brilliant tactician and total badass]] who inspires fear/awe in all around him (yet is almost always both under and overestimated by his enemies) and has lots of [[DarkSecret dark secrets]] including being a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy proud warrior race guy]] and a [[MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold loner with a heart of gold]]... who kills people. He also talks proudly about being a murderer, yet he also only seems to kill those who deserve it and acts to his own [[EveryoneHasStandards code]]. He's also the [[SoleSurvivor last survivor]] of the aforementioned [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy warrior race]] and the key figure in at least one [[TheProphecy prophecy]].

* CompleteMonster: In the extended version, [[BigBad Zhylaw]] is the [[TheNecrocracy Holy Half-Dead]] [[GalacticConqueror Lord Marshal]] of the Necromongers, [[ReligionOfEvil a spacefaring death cult]] on a crusade to either convert or wipe out all in their path. When as a young warrior he was given a prophecy by the air elemental Aereon that a male child born on the planet Furya would one day cause his downfall, he [[NiceJobBreakingItHerod commited genocide against the Furyans]] in his own private war, even [[WouldHurtAChild strangling newborn infants to death with their umbilical cords]]. Since becoming Lord Marshal he has [[OmnicidalManiac wiped out entire star systems inhabited by millions of colonists]] before settling on the Helion system, overrunning the capital world with his forces sustaining heavy casualties and killing many civilians in the process. When one of the captured leaders of the planet objects to his demands for total conversion given that on their world they accept all cultures, Zhylaw responds by [[YourSoulIsMine ripping the man's soul out of his body]]. Discovering that [[GenocideBackfire Richard B. Riddick is the one prophesied to kill him]], the Lord Marshal initially tries to have Riddick killed before later offering him to part ways solely out of fear. He also has Aereon captured to provide him with further revelation, promising to [[YouWillBeSpared spare her world "for last"]] while indicating that her own end will come as soon as [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he has no more use for her]]. In the climax he prepares to scour Helion Prime clean of life when Riddick challenges him to one-on-one combat. Zhylaw attempts to rip Riddick's soul out before fatally wounding his friend Kyra when she intervenes. Fully beholden to the omnicidal creed of the Necromongers, Zhylaw was nevertheless willing to throw his warrior ideals out the window as soon as he felt threatened, prompting his [[TheDragon second-in-command Lord Vaako]] to believe that he was no longer fit to be Lord Marshal.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Whenever Riddick kicks ass. The Furyan Purifier on Crematoria also gets one.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The Purifier's SecretTestOfCharacter conversation with Vaako is obviously a Loyalty test. It's not clear if he's acting on the Lord Marshall's behalf to ensure that Vaako isn't plotting against him, or, given the Purifier's later actions, if he is feeling him out to see if he'd make a potential ally.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Riddick being at last captured and sent to a triple max prison on a hellhole planet where he reunites with a now jaded and cynical Jack would have made a fine enough plot on its own, without the frankly [[OutsideContextVillain Out of left field]] necros.
