* DeathOfAChild: Gleefully applied in the second film, which has the aliens killing kids and [[BlackComedy even eating babies]]. However, [[GoryDiscretionShot none of it actually happens onscreen]], except for one kid falling victim to a facehugger.

** One of the final four survivors is a child though

* DVDCommentary: Both AVP movies have them.



* SchrodingersCanon: The films are half this, half FanonDiscontunity, and pretty well into CanonDiscontinuity with the release of Prometheus.

* BigBad: The Predalien takes center stage throughout the movie as the biggest and scariest alien around. It immediately destroys the Predator ship, creates a Xenomorph army to invade the rest of Earth, harvests a whole town. It forces the predators to send [[CleanUpCrew Wolf]] after it, as the only one who could take it down.

* CanonImmigrant: The [=PredAlien=] goes from a enemy in the PC game to an official sub-species in the second movie. There's also the different vision modes the Predator uses to spot aliens instead of humans in the first movie.

**Subverted in that the Alien was obviously feeding and not merely randomly stabbing a body.



* HybridMonster: The Predalien, though it's not truly a hybrid since aliens always take traits from their host.

** Recent sources such as the Weyland-Yutani Report confirm that the parasites use a cynose-based sedation as the method of subduing its victim.



* LargeAndInCharge: The Predalien hybrid towers over the human-spawned Xenomorphs given that its host was the already large Predator. Though it's implied that the Predalien is a young Queen (given her depositing alien embryos in any human she can get her hands on) who would ultimately have grown even larger than a human-spawned one.

* BadAss:
** Wolf: [[BadassGrandpa A highly experienced]] Predator with a lot of equally badass weapons. He [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] a lot of xenomorphs without breaking a sweat, and manages to put up an equal fight against the Predalien.
** The Predalien too: [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority pack leader]], [[CurbStompBattle wipes out]] an entire predator ship's crew and ties in a fight against the ancient, high-experienced predator Wolf.

* {{Badass}}: The "Grid" Alien from the first movie: he [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice stealth kills]] a predator as an entry and faces another in one of the franchise's most badass fight scenes. And wins!
** Scar and Lex count as well.

* BFS: The Predators' iconic wrist-blades are much larger in this movie than in previous iterations. ItMakesSenseInContext as the Predators in prior films were hunting humans, whereas Xenomorphs are a far tougher game, and using larger weapons makes just as much sense as a human hunter using a larger caliber rifle to kill a lion than a deer.

''Alien Vs. Predator'' is the [[CrossOver combination of Fox's two hit alien monster movies]], and the stories of the innocent humans caught in the middle. The concept was even hinted at in the second Predator movie, which featured a Xenomorph skull amongst the Predator's trophies. It was made into a movie in 2004, and a sequel, ''Requiem'', was made in 2007. The movies abandoned the futuristic setting of the comics and had the conflict take place on contemporary Earth. The movies weren't exactly embraced (though the first film was ''slightly'' better received by audiences), even by the fanbase. Most people point to ExecutiveMeddling as the cause of the films' failures.

The games, along with a series of comics and novels, are completely unrelated to the story or setting of the movies, and have been rendered non-canon - at least to the ''Alien'' universe - with the release of ''Film/{{Prometheus}}''.
