|“||The master is not married, nor do I think he ever will be. We're only his servants.||„|
|~ Riff Raff|
Riff Raff is a secondary antagonist in The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the servant of Frank N. Furter, along with his sister Magenta.
He was the first resident of Frank's castle who met Brad and Janet. He and Magenta assist Frank when he creates Rocky. Later, Riff Raff scares Rocky out of the laboratory and tells Frank, that Rocky escaped. However, Frank finds out that it was Riff Raff who set Rocky free and punishes him by punching him with a lash.
When Frank is using his guest for his macabre show, Riff Raff and Magenta appear, singing that Riff Raff is now their leader and they will return to their planet. When Frank sings that he wants to stay, Riff Raff explains that he meant that only he and Magenta will return home and shoots Columbia to prove the power of the antimatter-laser he's got. He finally kills Frank with the weapon and also kills Rocky. Then, he tells Janet, Brad and Dr. Scott to leave. Before the house flies away, he and Magenta sing the reprise of the song "Time Warp".
- He was portayed by Richard O'Brien, the man who invented the whole musical.
- He is not really evil, as he apologized to Dr. Scott after his nephew died and allowed him, Brad and Janet to leave before their house disappears.
