Rhino is the heaviest Warframe, combining offensive and defensive capabilities.

This is Rhino, an immovable force and highly resilient.

Rhino can survive alone or become the cornerstone of any squad, Tenno. The choice is yours.

Rhino is a heavily armored Warframe with the strength and fortitude of his reckless, stampeding namesake. Rhino trades speed for power and is designed to fill the tank role in a cell, with the capability to charge into the fray, draw enemy fire, and bend the battlefield to his will through sheer brute force.

TriviaEdit

  • "The Profit" trailer showcases the release of Warframe on the PS4 and includes Rhino as one of the screen-time characters in the plot. The trailer shows him punching his enemies without weapons, dealing tremendous damage. He is also shown not carrying any melee weapon.
    • It was mentioned by Geoff on a Livestream (around 17 - 20) that Rhino was supposed to be using Furax Furax in the trailer, but the model was too bulky for the animation they wanted to do, so they had him fight unarmed instead.
  • Rhino is the fifth Frame to have a Prime, after ExcaliburIcon272 Excalibur, FrostIcon272 Frost, MagIcon272 Mag, and EmberIcon272 Ember.
  • Prior to Update 19.13, Rhino required Mastery Rank 2 to build.

Red lights flashing on stark, white walls. Davis is running ahead of me, dropping his notes. We're running for our lives. The fear gives me a strange perspective - I'm out of my body. I've forgotten how I got here. I don't recognize this place.

Davis and I slam pinned against a cell door and he shouts at me. I give him a dumb look. I can't hear him, the sirens, anything, only the muffled throb of terror in my head. I turn away from Davis down the hall and I see it. The hulking mass, flickering red, glinting like steel and fresh blood. Its skin changes, flowing like mercury when I'm blinded by the sudden muzzle-flashes. They do no good. The beast surges forward and the security men become crimson mist and gore.

I'm a statue, a cornered animal. A gate opens inside me and recognition floods in. I have seen this monster before. I have cut its shell and eviscerated its brothers. I have given it pain and measured its response. I have crafted then rejected countless like it. But I've never seen this beast so close, without the shield, without restraints. I have never seen it... free.

I know I will die so I just watch with curious acceptance. The beast squats down, shovelling a heap of gore into its mouth. It is watching me with vague eyes, a sense of recognition, ancestral memory. It knows who I am and what I've done. It rears up like a bear and roars, shattering the lights and casting us into darkness. I can hear it lumbering toward me, its metal fingers rending the walls, but I know I am dead. I close my eyes and stand ready to pay.

I feel the pull on my arm and realize Davis got the cell open. He tugs me into the cell beyond and I fall on my back. I see Davis standing at the open door, waiting, as the monster tears towards us.

Suddenly I could live through this I shout, "Davis, close the goddamn door!" - But he shakes his head eyes wide as moons. He shouts, "Watch!" over the roaring and rending of metal.

Then silence. Davis is panting, laughing? The beast fills the doorway, inches from him, dripping in blood, but still without violence. It stands there, looking at its hands. Davis whispers, "No one would have believed me."

I crawl up the wall to stand, opposite the door. I've never seen this cell, a cold place with an array of shelves. A morgue? "Where are we, Davis?"

"This is where they keep them. The ones from Zariman." I'm thrown, what was the Zariman? The ship that never returned? "Davis, what's going on?"

Davis turns to me, a smile forming - "What's going on is..." he turns back to the beast now silent and calm.

"...big, fat promotions."

Takes Rhino's ground-shaking abilities to the next level with altered mod polarities that offer greater customization.

TriviaEdit

  • Rhino Prime was the first Prime Warframe to have an ability's effects modified compared to its unprimed counterpart. In this case, IronSkin130xDark Iron Skin appears to cover more of his body, and has a much smoother texture, lacking the rock-like clusters seen on the unprimed Rhino's Iron Skin.
    • Up until Hotfix 18.10.6, Rhino Prime's Iron Skin was also gold in color instead of the unprimed Rhino's grey color. It is now affected by Rhino Prime's chosen accent color.
    • In addition, Iron Skin has a visual effect of degrading as it wears off, shown in the patches of the Warframe's base colour that will seep through.
  • Rhino Prime was the first prime Warframe with a non-static model, the second being Nova PrimeIcon272 Nova Prime, with what appears to be a continuously-moving golden wind-up key on his back.
