* NiceJobBreakingItHero: When he and Vasquez [[BetterToDieThanToBeKilled blow themselves up to avoid being taken by the Xenomorphs]], they probably didn't expect the force from the blast to shoot further up the vent and knock Newt down another one, separating her from Ripley and Hicks.

* KarmaHoudini: In the deleted scene, Burke is last seen webbed to a reactor wall, soon to give agonizing-birth through his ribcage like all the victims whose lives hopes and dreams he destroyed with his greed, begging for Ripley to help him. Unfortunately, instead of letting him snap-crackle-and-pop and take responsibility for his actions, Ripley gives him his undeserved mercy in the form of an armed grenade, robbing 157 innocent men women and children of the justice they deserved.

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Due to having to endure the excruciating and humiliating agony of a chestburster's birth. Made doubly cruel because since Apone chose to burn her "child" with Crowe's incinerator, her final sensation before passing into oblivion was the compounded agony of being seared to a crisp in an inferno.

* NervesOfSteel: After [[spoiler: his unit gets largely wiped out,]] unlike Gorman, (who freezes up under pressure and then gets knocked out), Hudson (who becomes a nervous wreck), and Vasque, (who enters a murderous rage), Hicks never once loses his cool.

* NervesOfSteel: Illustrated early in the film when he spends most of the drop down to the colony ''asleep'', in contrast to Gorman's nervousness and the boisterous behavior of his fellow Marines. After [[spoiler: his unit gets largely wiped out,]] unlike Gorman, (who freezes up under pressure and then gets knocked out), Hudson (who becomes a nervous wreck), and Vasque, (who enters a murderous rage), Hicks never once loses his cool.

* BlingBlingBang: Downplayed. Her personal sidearm, a Smith & Wesson Model 39, is fairly standard apart from its ivory grips.

* DoesntLikeGuns: Refuses to take along a pistol when he leaves to summon the dropship. It's explained in outside sources that he has no directives for combat, but even in the extenuating circumstances the film presents, it wouldn't have done him much good if he encountered any aliens en route. Similarly, it can be interpreted as a variation of his [[ThreeLawsCompliant directives]]: he refused the handgun because he was present when the survivors went over their low stock of guns and ammunition and decided that accepting the gun was risking the wellbeing of one or more of the others. And, as it turns out, he was ''absolutely right''. [[spoiler:He hands the pistol to Vasquez, and she uses it later to kill a xenomorph after her pulse rifle runs out of ammo. She dies afterwards alongside Gorman, but it not only prolonged her survival, but also meant she was there to keep pressure on the grenade's stud long enough for it to detonate after Gorman tried (and failed) to set it off just by clicking it.]]
