* VocalChangeling: The Predator is an uncanny mimic, using this ability a couple of times to lure it's prey into sniping positions. Swerves hard into the UncannyValley at the film's end, when [[spoiler: it repeats Arnold's question of "What the hell are you?" after being mortally wounded, then descends into a [[EvilLaugh vile cackle]] that is a twisted echo of Billy's laughter as it engages a [[TakingYouWithMe self-destruct mechanism]].]]

* EvilIsBigger: When it comes face-to-face with Dutch in the finale, you finally get a good sense of just how big the Predator is compared to him (complete with a lingering shot of the beast [[NeckLift holding Dutch against a tree]] with his feet helplessly dangling at least a foot off the ground).[[note]]The stuntman who played The Predator, Kevin Peter Hall, was 7'3" (more than a foot taller than Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger) and specifically selected for his height. After the initial monster debacle with Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme, director John =McTiernan= needed an actor who could look intimidating next to Arnold and his bodybuilding/professional wrestling cohort. They got him.[[/note]]

* GuileHero: What he becomes in the finale ''out of necessity'' due to being [[EvilIsBigger completely outclassed]] physically against the Predator.



* GeniusBruiser: The Predator is remarkably good at detecting and avoiding traps and ambushes, while simultaneously setting up ambushes and traps of his own.

to:

* GeniusBruiser: The Predator is ''huge'' (making Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger look small is an impressive feat), completely [[NoSell no sells]] Dutch in hand-to-hand combat, and is still remarkably good at detecting and avoiding traps and ambushes, while ambushes (while simultaneously setting up ambushes and traps of his own.own).

* KnifeNut: Mac seems to really like sharp things. He has the famous StabtheScorpion scene and is seen shaving with a razor several times throughout the movie, without shaving cream. Additionally, when Dillon finds Mac's discarded gear, one can see a throwing knife tucked away in the vest.
