Powers and Stats

Tier: 9-B physically, likely 9-A when releasing Furyan energy.

Name: Richard B. Riddick, Prisoner 5421135-2

Origin: The Chronicles of Riddick

Gender: Male

Age: 36 years old

Classification: Alpha Furyan, Former Lord Marshall, Soldier, Convict, Mercenary

Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Enhanced Senses, limited Energy Projection (via Furyan Energy Wave), Can survive without oxygen for a prolonged time (as Riddick was able to be strangled with his own umbilical cord without terminal harm), Superlative night vision, Very skilled in hand-to-hand combat, Extremely proficient in stealth tactics and stealth-based combatHighly skilled in strategy, tactics and deductive reasoning, Trained in the use of various melee weapons and firearms, Can adapt to climate changes and toxins (When a mercenary team was attempting to take him out with horse tranquilizers, it took four darts just to make Riddick stop running, and he still remained conscious until he was hit in the head), Resistance to drugs, Resistance to Mind Manipulation and Soul Manipulation via his own strength of will.

Attack Potency: Wall level physically. Likely Small Building level when releasing Furyan energy (A single wave as shown in Escape From Butcher Bay killed four prison guards, sent a fifth flying several feet away and blew down a reinforced metal door. Another wave was shown instantly killing a group of surrounding Necromongers in the Director's Cut of The Chronicles Of Riddick.)

Speed: At least Subsonic movement speed (Disarmed a guard and appeared behind him before he could react. Dodged a rocket in Assault On Dark Athena.) with Supersonic reactions (Has dodged bullets a handful of times.)

Lifting Strength: At least Class 1, possibly higher (Effortlessly broke a guard's leg with only one arm. Ripped out a steel pipe welded to both a wall and a ceiling while in midair. Has physically held back aliens much larger than himself.)

Striking Strength: Wall Class (On two separate occasions, sent a Necromonger flying with enough force to crack a nearby wall, the second instance of which killed him.)

Durability: Wall level (Tackled a prison guard into The Pit of Butcher Bay's Single-Max Security Level and survived the fall with minimal damage, despite the impact of said fall instantly killing the guard. Survived falling hundreds of feet and being buried under rubble, only suffering from a broken leg afterwards. Survived being shot in the ribs by Jagger Valance and was walking perfectly fine a short time later.)

Stamina: Superhuman. Has superior healing when compared to most humans; he is shown on more than one occasion dislocating his limbs for brief moments with only slight signs of discomfort, as well as running through scores of armed foes for long periods of time without rest. In general, Riddick possesses an abnormally high pain threshold and psychologically channels what pain he does feel into anger and confidence.

Range: Standard melee range physically. Extended melee range with most melee weapons. Several feet when releasing Furyan energy. Dozens of meters with firearms/throwing weapons.

Standard Equipment: Goggles, a pair of Ulaks, various other weapons

Intelligence: Very high. Is a tactical and strategic genius with extraordinary analytical skills and years of combat experience. Has escaped numerous high-security prisons and avoided capture for years at a time. Managed to deduce the flaw in the Butcher Bay Triple-Max Security Level's supposedly flawless Cryosleep System, and did so in less than 12 minutes.

Weaknesses: His eyes are sensitive to light, requiring him to wear welding goggles to protect them from outside light sources. He has a protective streak when it comes to children and friends he's made, which sometimes affects his judgement. His ability to channel Furyan energy appears to be unreliable against singular opponents, as he has only ever used it in situations where he was surrounded.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Stealth Mastery: Riddick possesses alarming stealth abilities that allow him to remain unnoticed even in the most extreme situations. In addition to avoiding detection by guards and soldiers on numerous occasions, he used this to silently remove a hairpin from Captain Revas's person while remaining entirely beneath her notice.
  • Eyeshine: Riddick's stealth capabilities are augmented by his eyes, which contain a special 'shine' that gives him perfect vision in the dark at the expense of increased sensitivity to light.
  • Pain Tolerance: Riddick's ability to ignore pain is far above that of the average human. He once stood unfazed after being stabbed in the back, was barely slowed down by a gunshot that grazed his forearm, and even withstood being bitten in the leg by an alien, allowing it to keep its teeth sunken into his thigh long enough to sever its head with a blade.
  • Improvisation: Riddick has consistently been shown to have superb improvisational skills, including the ability to forge tools from his surroundings, use basic, everyday objects as weapons, and alter his plans in the face of unexpected obstacles. In one notable instance, he encountered the locked gate that prevented him from reaching The Pit and quickly managed to trick the guards into opening it for him. In an instance of weapon-improvisation, he managed to kill a man with nothing but a teacup, and all but stated to said man's allies that he could do the same with a mere can key.
  • Indomitable Will: Through his own force of will, Riddick has been shown taming wild animals and beasts, as well as resisting numerous extremes far beyond what is considered possible for a typical human to survive. When mentally probed by the Quasi-Dead of the Necromongers, he not only resisted their power, but retaliated against it to the point of causing their containers to explode from the strain of attempting to process him. In an equally impressive display, he managed to resist the Lord Marshall's attempt to steal his soul, fighting back with his own sheer willpower.
  • Furyan Energy Wave: Riddick possesses the ability to unleash a sort of limited energy wave from within himself that affects anyone, everyone and everything within several feet of him. He has been shown performing this ability a total of two times within the Riddick canon, and managed simultaneous kills on multiple attackers with it on both occasions.
