** And even with [[spoiler: how little damage they did]], this is the first time [[spoiler: [[CurbStompCushion that they harm the Predator at all, proving him vulnerable.]]]]

* The final showdown between Dutch and the Predator, where the Predator [[WorthyOpponent takes off its armour to beat Dutch in a fair one-on-one fight]]... and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beats the everloving shit out of him]]. Then Dutch tries to lure it into a trap he made, demanding the Predator finish him...[[GenreSavvy only for the Predator to sense the obvious and approach from a different angle]], so Dutch trips the trap anyway and takes it out with a tree stump used as the counterweight. Bad. Ass.

* The squad's early assault on the rebel camp. Taking out a well-guarded, heavily fortified base with no casualties or even serious injuries, it positively cements Dutch and his crew as people with whom you do not wish to fuck. Which makes the Predator himself going all [[DwindlingParty ten-little-Indians]] on their ass even more awesome: You know how good these guys are, and the Predator takes almost all of them down without breaking a sweat.

** When they're done, there's an entire new clearing in the jungle that wasn't there when they started.

** In a wonderful piece of physical acting by Kevin Peter Hall, the Predator looks up, hears the sound, then goes back to what he was doing (heating up his wrist blades with his laser sight). Almost as if saying "Just you wait, buddy, I'm coming for you too."

* [[spoiler:Billy]], after spending most of the movie terrified of the Predator, pulls a YouShallNotPass moment to buy time for the few remaining team members. It turns out to be a SenselessSacrifice, but it's still unbelievably {{Badass}}.
