5 Movie Monsters We Want To See Riddick Fight

Published 1 year ago by , Updated September 6th, 2013 at 1:23 pm, This is a list post.

Riddick Fight Movie Monsters He's mean, he's deadly, he can see in the dark; and in Riddick, Vin Diesel once again dons the goggles of the titular antihero to battle with alien creatures of the night (and a few humans along the way). While that may be the exact same plot of the film that first introduced the character of Richard B. Riddick, Pitch Black (2000), you won't hear fans complaining. There are few things Dick Riddick is better at than killing monsters - and that's got us thinking. Although he's beaten every enemy yet faced, here are 5 Movie Monsters We Want to See Riddick Fight. Win or lose, we know they'd be worth watching...

Xenomorph

Riddick Movie Monster Fight Xenomorphs Seen in: Alien series Strengths: Gifted in stealth, with razor-sharp claws, a piercing tail, acidic blood and an oral appendage capable of punching through a human skull. Weaknesses: Susceptible to fire, blades and bullets as much as any living creature. Seeing how the Xenomorphs bear a strong resemblance to the creatures Riddick has faced in the past, and that the star of the Alien series usually relies on fear and panic to give it the upper hand, we think Riddick could come out on top. Though it was never clear how Xenomorphs see, Riddick's night vision would likely remove any advantage. His usual blades could pose a problem given the creatures' acidic blood, but that's not going to save them.

Graboid

Riddick Movie Monster Graboid Tremors Seen in: Tremors series Strengths: Able to track prey by sound alone, three tongues (each possessing a mouth); spawned Shriekers are gifted pack hunters who track by temperature. Weaknesses: Lack of vision makes tricking or trapping Graboids possible; Shriekers suffer from a lack of hearing. As terrifying as the Graboid Shriekers are, we have no doubt that their limited senses would make them easy pickings for Riddick; the fully grown Graboids are another story. Since Riddick usually prefers to let his fists do the talking, he would require a different approach with the massive, prehistoric sandworms. Night vision or no, these creatures are bigger, stronger, and faster than any human - Riddick would need to outsmart, not outhunt them. We never granted the antihero an abundance of brains, but seeing him pull off the feat would be a welcome change.

Predator

Riddick Movie Monster Fight Predator Seen in: Predator series Strengths: Advanced technology, active camouflage, mastery of blades and energy weapons; well-versed in all elements of stalking and killing dangerous prey. Heightened endurance, strength and durability. Weaknesses: Natural infrared vision has been fooled before, camouflaging body heat to become invisible to the Predator. Since the Yautja - known to humans as 'Predators' - are skilled with every conceivable weapon, masters of all knowledge in hunting the universe's most dangerous creatures, and able to see in the dark, these trained killers are more than a match for Riddick. If Riddick managed to up his game, he might just live; but considering how many average human beings have posed a challenge to Predators in the past, we'd bet the fight would be worth watching whatever the outcome.

Mr. Stay Puft

Riddick Movie Monster Fight Stay Puft Marshmallow Seen in: Ghostbusters (1984) Strengths: At over 100 ft. tall, sheer size is the only real strength here - and the mental trauma inflicted by seeing a lovable corporate mascot turn a city block into dust. Weaknesses: An extreme vulnerability to fire or crossed streams. The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man - technically an 'ectoplasmically-animated gateway homunculus' - may seem squishy, but as the physical manifestation of the extra-dimensional being Gozer, it's not to be trifled with. Let's be honest: Riddick would have no trouble taking him out (with a few clever quips at the expense of his neckerchief). While blades or bullets might be ineffective, expose this monster to an open flame, and Riddick's one massive graham cracker and chocolate bare away from the world's biggest s'more. But we still want to see Mr. Stay Puft get what's coming to him.

Godzilla

Riddick Movie Monster Fight Godzilla Seen in: Godzilla series Strengths: Massive size, nearly invincible, capable of rapid regeneration, and possessing a deadly atomic breath ray. Weaknesses: Impaired maneuverability given its size, cadmium missiles, high doses of electricity (sometimes), the Oxygen Destroyer (possibly). If the name of 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' wasn't enough of a hint, the only thing that ever really posed a threat to Godzilla was another monumental monster. The only way a single person could pose a threat to the atomically-mutated creature is through scientific breakthrough - not Riddick's strong suit. Since Godzilla has remained undefeated for more than 50 years, there's no way Riddick could manage the task. Still, if Vin Diesel is looking to end the series on a high note, a Godzilla fight would do the trick.

Conclusion

Riddick Fight Movie Monsters Those are just a handful of the fights that come to mind whenever the prospect of another Riddick adventure is mentioned. We already know that there are plans for even more Riddick sequels, so who knows: maybe some of these fights aren't so far-fetched after all (don't bet on it). Do you think we've overlooked some truly brilliant monsters who would give Riddick a run for his money? Name them in the comments. _____ Riddick hits theaters today.

  1. Godzilla hands down…

  2. ok i think you guys got a little carried away with stay puffy and godzilla haha. but the other three would be very interesting to see. i actually always pictured riddick fighting xenomorphs in pitch black. and predators would be really cool. cooler than fighting the underverse people.

  3. jabba the hut ?

  4. AvPvR

    Done.

    I would also like to see Riddick take on vampires and zombies. :)

    • Or the creature/tentacles from Deep Rising (am i the only one that LOVES that movie?).

  5. Graboids please!!!

  6. RIDDICK VS BOBA FETT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Haha give Riddick a few more sequels, and his life story will rival Boba Fett’s in absurdity.

  7. Tribbles & Gremlins!

  8. Riddick against a Predator would last about as long as Justin Bieber in the mosh pit of a slayer concert.

    • haha

  9. Riddick vs. Predator would be pretty awesome. I don’t think that he’d fair too well against xenomorphs with just a pair of Ulaks though.

  10. Xenomorphs “see” via sonar, their big dome head acts as the receiver.

    • No they don’t

  11. if danny glover can walk away from a predator onslaught I think riddick will do just fine!

  12. An Alien vs Predator vs Riddick movie would be AWESOME. I think Riddick would ghost both Dutch and Harrigan, meaning he would stand to win against a SINGLE Predator. Assuming he didnt get an acid bath on his first Xeno kill he would do fine against aliens.

  13. The Godzilla and Stay Puft was out there–Godzilla, seriously? Yeah, that’s a one-sided fight. I’m an Alien fan so I put Riddick at a disadvantage against the xenomorph. He could survive but a straight up fight would be boring. I’d rather see him dropped into the cooling towers in Aliens. But Riddick against the Predator–now THAT would be awesome! Would the cloaking device still be advantageous for the Predator?

  14. Those last two were hilarious, talk about getting trolled! Riddick vs Predator would be legit.

  15. Riddick v. The monster in Jeepers Creepers would be cool.
    Riddick dropped into the Underworld series would be entertaining and feature a lot of bullet time.
    What about Riddick vs. Blade?
    Speaking of Godzilla- what about Riddick vs. The Hulk?
    Riddick spends a lot of these movies chained up- what about Riddick vs. Pinhead?
    Honestly, Riddick dropped in the Jurassic Park island might be entertaining (obviously he can be one species at a time, but what about T-Rex v. Raptor v. Riddick?
    Riddick vs. The Scorpion King (from Mummy Returns) OR Riddick vs. The Army of Anubus?
    Riddick vs. Spawn?
    Riddick vs. Sharknado?

    • If Jurassic Park 4 ISN’T Riddick being dropped onto the island, I’m starting a petition.

  16. I think this article tapped into an idea that has largely failed Hollywood recently, in the “Blank vs. Blank” genre. The last good one (and virtually only one in last several decades) was Freddy vs. Jason – say what you will, but there is profitability and fun available for low budget Hollywood mashups- Think about it this way, would it be a good movie – NO, but would it be fun ? If done right absolutely. Think about our current horror series of note Paranormal Activity- they will make those until they are blue in the face because they cost nothing to make and always bring in like $80-100 mil for their efforts. I mean, on a budget of 25 mil- you could make Riddick vs. who ever- bill it as trashy action fun, and quintuple your money. Maybe Riddick vs. would be the better way to go with the series

  17. Riddick vs Dominic Toretto

    • I think riddick would win that fight.

      • He lives his life one solar system at a time.

  18. I like these a lot. But once thing I must nitpick (sorry, I’m in Fanboy-mode at the moment) is that Godzilla was defeated by Mothra and King Kong. So if a giant moth and a giant gorilla could defeat Godzilla, then I’m sure Riddick might have a .000000000001 chance of winning haha.

  19. Id only go with the Xenomorph & Predator Vs. Riddick. A$$blasters weren’t mentioned in the Tremors section. Btw, I wonder if it would be possible to do a Tremors remake/reboot with or without Michael Gross.

  20. im intrigued tel me more ….

  21. Langoliers.

  22. A fight with Xenomorph will be interesting

  23. riddick vs riddick, riddick vs a furian strike team, that was off world at the time turned merc., riddick vs the new lord marshal vako, riddick vs a warrior elemental, riddick vs tombs after years of training to take riddick on, riddick and Johns vs the entire merc cominity.

  24. Who cares?

  25. zombies from world war z

  26. Riddick versus a cloned Riddick

  27. Ha! I love this list.

  28. I think he should fight your mama! Nah im just playing! But fo real…why night…Ben Kingsley? Sir Ben was OUTSTANDING in IM3!

  29. Riddick vs. Riddick clone is riddickulous! Sir.
