* {{Patricide}}: Many of his films show some kind of conflict between a son and a parent (either literally or metaphorically) which usually ends with the former killing the latter. The ''Alien'' creature kills its host in a way similar to birthing, Batty from ''Blade Runner'' murders his creator Tyrell after calling him father, Commodus kills his dad Marcus Aurelius in ''Gladiator'', Moses opposes Seti I in ''Exodus'', and even ''Black Hawk Down'' contains a scene of a Somali child accidentally killing his own father. David from ''Prometheus'' seems to sum Scott's usage of the trope with the quote "Doesn't everyone want their parents dead?"

Highly accomplished commercial director, doing some of the early Apple ads, turned auteur, '''[[UsefulNotes/KnightFever Sir]]''' '''Ridley Scott''' (he doesn't use the title as it makes him "sound like an old man") (born 30 November 1937) is a British director. Known for an obsession with visual detail rivaling Creator/StanleyKubrick, if not Creator/AlfredHitchcock. Several of his early works helped establish the popularity of the UsedFuture trope. Older brother of late director Creator/TonyScott, and the father of Jake, Jordan and Luke Scott, all directors. He has worked with an incredibly wide variety of genres and budgets, yet somehow maintains his own special touch through it all.

* ExcessiveSteamSyndrome: One of the more frequent visual motifs of his Scifi and fantasy films -- ''Alien'', ''Blade Runner'', ''Film/{{Legend|1985}}'', and ''Prometheus''. Even scenes without it may still have characters cooking noodles or soup and producing a lot of steam as well.
