* {{Badass}}: The first thing she does after coming out of cryosleep without any assistance, a process that leaves everyone severely weakened, is doing pushups.
** Also doesn't hesitate to pick up a flamethrower and [[spoiler: incinerate an infected Holloway rather than let him contaminate the rest of the crew.]]

* {{Badass}}: She manages to [[spoiler:take out two people whilst in crippling pain ''and'' likely suffering the side effects of a sedative. Shaw then takes it upon herself to personally remove the thing inside her womb using a hastily reprogrammed AutoDoc (meant for ''male patients'') while dosing herself with a ton of painkillers that were still inadequate for the surgery. She spends the remainder of the film with a stapled abdominal that should logically be preventing her from ''walking'', much less pull half the things she does.]]

* IdiotBall: He wants to leave with Fifield immediately after seeing a dead alien for the first time. However, he later finds a ''living'' alien snake and tries to [[TooDumbToLive pet it like a dog]], somehow ''not'' terrified of it, even though it's [[GenreBlind hissing like a cobra at him]]!

%%* * TooDumbToLive: Arguably.Probably the most blatant example in a story full of fatal errors. [[spoiler:Why did he think it was a good idea to approach and pet a strange, several-foot-long, worm-like alien creature? [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong Guess what happened to him next]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* NiceToTheWaiter: She's pretty much the only character to treat David like an actual person, which is probably why he has, as per WordOfGod, a "curious crush" on her.

* AllThereInTheManual: Apparently one too many missions have made him a little on edge.

* AllThereInTheManual: Apparently one too many missions have made him a little on edge. It's only revealed in promotional materials, although it's not something you could not figure from watching him.



* HydraProblem: Fifield attempts to cut off the alien snakes head when it breaks Millburns arm but not only does it spray acid blood over Fifields face for his efforts, the head ''instantly'' grows back.

* FantasticRacism: The film shows him and the other Engineers planning to take the bioweapon to Earth before he was forced to enter stasis. When he wakes up, his first actions are launching an unprovoked, violent attack on the first humans he encounters and resuming the plan to take the bioweapon to Earth. Going by this, it's likely he despises humans.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperStrength: He casually rips off an android's head with only his hands and no leverage, something which is probably not easy to do even for a tall being like him.

* DontTouchItYouIdiot: Lampshaded when David is trying to open a door and Shaw says no, they don't know what's on the other side. Cue David opening the door and saying "Oops. Sorry".

[[folder:The Deacon]]
!!The Deacon

* TheAssimilator: In the ''Fire and Stone'' comics, it's revealed that further exposure to A0-3959X.91 15 caused the Deacon to grow around the wreckage of the ''Prometheus''.
* ChestBurster: It emerges from the chest of the Engineer at the very end of the movie.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Suffice to say there's human DNA in it somewhere.
* NestedMouths: It has a goblin shark-like pharyngeal jaw.
* StarfishAlien: It was born through a complicated process involving the mutagenic material A0-3959X.91 15, and bears a distinct resemblance to the Xenomorphs, such that official material even calls it a "Proto-Xenomorph".
