Rincewind is a character in the Discworld books - a failed "wizzard" from Unseen University, who is unable to actually perform magic but does have a talent for languages, a strong sense of self-preservation and the favour of a powerful god. He is the first protagonist of the Discworld novels, and appears in many of the early books, which form a sub-series. His later appearances cross over with those of the Wizards.


The Rincewind series of books comprises seven novels and three of the Science of Discworld books:

Rincewind also makes cameo appearances in Mort and Unseen Academicals.


Rincewind was also the protagonist of the Discworld videogames Discworld and Discworld II: Missing Presumed...!?, where he was voiced by Eric Idle. He is played by David Jason in Terry Pratchett's The Colour of Magic.
