The intro Crazy Train riff pretty much made me want to play guitar when I was a kid. The tab for that riff is still the first thing I see in my head when I think of guitars 2242524225452540.

Ain't Talkin 'Bout Love - Van Halen (that intro riff w/ the flanger)
Sweet Child o' Mine - GnR (Intro)

I like some of my own riffs ;-)
[Congrats to myself on my ten hundredth post, haha.]

If you wanna check out an example of some own stuff I like... Look here, press "play demo" there (and it's merely a demo I came up with to do some sound samples for that custom guitar of mine). That riff is later played with an octave harmony/2 guitars. I like guitar parts with harmonic structure, be it riffs or solo parts.

It's hard to choose a Top 3. It also depends on whether it's sheer power, some cool melodic lines or a mixture of it.

Jeff Waters from Annihilator comes to mind as a riff master/beast with lots of crazy riffs. He can also be creative with open string riffs - I love the main riff in "Set The World On Fire" (actually I'm using this riff a lot when doing recording soundchecks). Here's that riff (starting from 0.33 into the track):

For something melodic... I'm thinking of Iron Maiden / that "Phantom Of The Opera" melodic riff. Maiden had a massive impact on my melodic style.

As for coolness... RAGE (guitarist: Victor Smolski / drums: (at that time) Mike Terrana) / that "Straight To Hell" intro riff - beginning from 0.11 in the link:

AC/DC have a lot... I always liked playing that "Riff Raff" riff.

Haven't been listening to metal for a long time... So many cool riffs escaping me.

Can't stop by red hot chili pepper
Hurry Up by Paul Gilbert
Master of Puppet by Metallica
That is my top three favorite guitar riffs of all time.
