** Their actors are similarly polar opposites. ArnoldSchwarzenegger was a former body-builder mainly cast for his look, and has the acting talent of a tree trunk. Creator/AdrienBrody is known as one of the finest actors of his generation, being the youngest recipient for a Best Actor Oscar, and was not even considered as an action star until this movie came out.

* FatalFamilyPhoto: Oh Nikolai. If only he'd seen TvTropes, he'd know not to proudly pass around a photo of his kids in a combat zone.

Added DiffLines:

* RedHerring: Just from his serial killer background and making some sleazy comments towards Isabelle, one might expect Stans to be the one who would ultimately try to backstab the heroes in some way. However, he does no such thing because [[spoiler: Edwin happens to be the BitchInSheepsClothing the whole time and does try to murder Isabelle later on]].

Added DiffLines:

* HiddenDepths: He's a serial killer and implied to be a rapist as well, as opposed to most of the others on the team who have some sort of military background. Despite all that, he actually causes far less trouble on the team than the audience might expect, given his hardened criminal characteristics. He's also not above [[spoiler: sacrificing himself to allow the others to get away]].

* {{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]].
