Eddie Riggs

Heavy Metal roadie

Eddie Riggs

A good roadie knows his whole job is to make someone else look good, keep someone else safe, help someone else do what they were put here to do. A good roadie stays out of the spotlight. If he's doing his job right, you don't even know he's there. Once in a while he might step on stage just to fix a problem, to set something right. But then before you even realize he was there or what he did, he's gone.

– The Roadie's Creed

Eddie Riggs is the protagonist of Brütal Legend. He is named after Eddie the Head (the mascot of Iron Maiden), and Derek Riggs (the artist who created the mascot), and voiced by Jack Black. Brütal Legend designer Tim Schafer explains that he got the idea for using a Roadie as the main character for a video game when he met one of Megadeth's roadies, Tony.1

The character design for the main character, Eddie Riggs, resembles the rotund features of his voiced counterpart, Jack Black. However, concept artwork shows that the character originally featured strong resemblances to Motörhead's Lemmy Kilmister. It was only after Black was cast into the role of Eddie Riggs that they redesigned the character to his current looks.
