* {{Badass}}: Possibly the greatest in the franchise as Dutch and Harrigan only had to contend with one Predator instead of three.



* {{Badass}}: Sure, he may be focused on keeping a low profile rather than constantly fighting Predators, but he claims to have survived at least ''7 hunting seasons'' on the world (or as his imaginary companion asserts, ''it's actually closer to 10''). Either way, that's still pretty impressive. Even more so when you consider it's implied that the conflict he was plucked from was ''Vietnam''. He also trekked along the Game Preserve Planet. That alone gets you points.



* {{Badass}}: While just about all the characters in the movie are badass in some way, he manages to go one on one with a Predator and fight it to [[spoiler:a MutualKill]] with nothing but a katana.

* {{Badass}}: His NECA action figure biography states he was the youngest ever Predator to kill a Xenomorph and complete the rite of passage.

* MutualKill: [[spoiler:A Predator impales him through the chest with its wrist-blades, but Nikolai's shirt falls open to reveal that he has several Claymore mines strapped to himself (which he stole from Nolan). He chokes out "You're one ugly motherfucker!" in Russian, then detonates the mines. The point-blank blast is enough to actually kill the Predator, the first one any of them even manages to kill, providing a brief HopeSpot]].

* PsychoForHire: He likes to kill for killing's own sake, but that said, he's not unstable and has lines he refuses to cross.

to:

* PsychoForHire: Played with. He freely admits that he likes to kill battle and killing for killing's its own sake, but that said, he's not unstable and has lines he refuses to cross.



%%* AssholeVictim

to:

%%* AssholeVictim* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:By the time he gets killed off, between his insanity and his backstabbing of the group, (and the implication that he'd done this many times before) nobody is sad to see him get killed.]]



* BaldOfEvil: His shaved head nicely complements his past of carrying out horrific deeds.



* TheRival: to Stans, at first.

to:

* TheRival: to To Stans, at first.first. The two fought each other soon after landing on the planet and take turns enjoying it when something bad happens to each other.



%%* BadassMustache

to:

%%* BadassMustache* BadassMustache: Danny Trejo's trademark handlebar mustache is kept for the role, and Cuchillo is certainly not the sort of guy an ordinary person wants to mess with.



* FromCamouflageToCriminal: Possibly. Royce guesses that he's an enforcer for the Zetas Cartel, and the Zetas were initially founded by Special Forces troops who deserted from the Mexican Army.



* RogueAgent: Possibly. The Zetas were initially founded by Special Forces deserters from the Mexican Army.



* TattooedCrook

to:

* TattooedCrookTattooedCrook: Trejo's real life tattoos are visible, and Cuchillo is a dangerous criminal.

* TheSociopath: [[spoiler: Hopelessly manipulative, sees other people as objects to be used or exploited, feigns human emotion, utterly devoid of sympathy, pity, or remorse... he's a surprisingly realistic one.]]
