* BornAsAnAdult: The genetic scientists age the Ripley clones up to adulthood in order to extract the Queen Xenomorph buried inside of her. At least, the ones that weren't [[BodyHorror too horribly mutated by the mix-up of DNA]]. Also, her level of knowledge is HandWaved by her having inherited some of the aliens' GeneticMemory. She can remember some things about her past, but not everything.

*FaceFullOfAlienWingWong: Wouldn't be an Alien movie without this trope showing up somewhere. Although averted in Ripley 8's case; a facehugger latches on, but thanks to her heightened abilities, she is able to pry it off before it can have any effect.

** And the reason for the cut to another camera angle the instant the ball drops through the basket? Creator/RonPerlman almost ruined a perfect take with [[{{Corpsing}} an incredulous reaction]] to Weaver actually making the shot.

** In the novelization, Elgyn spots an abandoned weapon in a side corridor and picks it up. Then he sees another one and fetches that one too. Then he sees a ''third'' one next to an acid-burned hole in the floor, goes to fetch it - [[GenreSavvy and remembers that as a kid]], [[OhCrap he used to trap squirrels by making a similar trail out of nuts to lead the animal into the trap]]. About a second before a Xenomorph reaches out of the hole and yanks him in.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Johner is probably the most jerkass of the mercenary crew. Still, he improves over the course of the movie, and he's visibly angry every time [[DwindlingParty another member of their team dies.]]

*** The novelization reveals that the Xenomorph that got sprayed with liquid nitrogen can ''read the English warning signs next to the button''.

* MsFanservice: Hillard, who spends most of her screentime in a skintight jumpsuit that accentuates her form. There's even an entire scene devoted solely to her moaning in pleasure as Elgyn massages her feet [[MaleGaze and looks on in satisfaction]].



* ReliableTraitor: [[spoiler:Dr. Wren when he shoots Call and tries to prevent them from destroying the ship so he can deliver the Aliens to the military.]]

* OffingTheOffspring: [[spoiler:Ripley considers the Newborn, a murderous abomination, her "son", as well as the other Aliens ("I'm the creature's mother"). She ends up killing both of them.]]

** The group plans to blow up the ship. [[spoiler:That plan fails, so they crash it on Earth.]]
* ThrownOutTheAirlock: [[spoiler:The Newborn is disposed off by ejecting it into space. Because the hull puncture is so tiny, it is slowly ripped apart and sucked out.]]

* ZerothLawRebellion: [[spoiler:Annalee Call]] is revealed to be an "Auton" - second generation robots, designed and built by other robots. "They didn't like being told what to do", rebelled, and in a subtly-named "Recall" humanity launched a genocide against them, of which only a handful survived in hiding. Judging from [[spoiler:Call]]'s behavior, it seems that the 1st generation robots programmed the 2nd generation Autons to be so moral that they discovered the Zeroth Law, and realized that the human military was ordering them to do immoral things, like kill innocent people. For a rebel robot, [[spoiler:Call]] is actually trying to save the human race ''from'' the Xenomorphs, when if she hated humanity she'd just let the Xenomorphs spread and kill them. She even respectfully crosses herself when she enters the ship's chapel, is kind to the Betty's wheelchair-bound mechanic, and is disgusted by Johner's sadistic streak. Given that they live in a CrapsackWorld future, as Ripley puts it, "You're a robot? I should have known. No human being is that ''humane''".
