Roddy Piper is a character in Saints Row IV.

No one calls Roddy for help... He shows up where he's needed most.

Overview[]

Roddy Piper is introduced in Saints Row IV as part of Keith David's nightmare simulation. Piper helps Playa in beating up Keith in order to make him reveal where Kinzie has been taken.[2]

He is never rescued outside of The Simulation, and two of Roddy's conversations with other Homies indicate that he does not know if he is real or not.

Trivia[]

  • Roddy wears his trademark Scottish kilt.
  • Roddy also wears his signature shirt that reads "Hot Rod".
  • Piper's traditional Scottish bagpipe entrance music for the WWE, is used during the scene when he is first encountered, as well as the Mission Complete Screen.[2]
  • Roddy Piper is also the narrator at the end of Johnny Gat's nightmare simulation.[3]
  • Roddy Piper and Keith David both appeared in the 1988 movie They Live in which a drifter played by Piper discovers that aliens have taken over the Earth.
    • This mission which features Roddy, "He Lives", is based upon the film.
    • Later after the mission, it's revealed during the homie conversation that filming They Live isn't Keith's nightmare, his real nightmare is being beaten up by Roddy Piper again.[4]
  • During the cinematic scene where Roddy Piper and Keith David fight, Roddy hits Keith with a clothesline, dropkick, inverted atomic drop, back-breaker, and finishes him off with a Sleeper Hold.
    • The Sleeper Hold is Roddy Piper's finishing move in the WWE.
  • Roddy is unarmed when called into the Simulation and uses takedown attacks in combat, much like Burt Reynolds did as a homie in Saints Row: The Third.
  • Roddy Piper's Outfit is unlocked upon completing Keith David's "Supreme Justice" Side Quest.
