* ZombieInfectee: [[spoiler:Scar is impregnated by a facehugger after his marking ritual, but the next time we seen him, he is shown putting on his mask as if nothing, and he spends the rest of the film acting as if he didn't know about the Alien inside of him.]]

* ShoutOut: The sub-plot of a human female displaying enough courage and prowess (namely by killing a couple of Xenos) for a Predator to fight alongside her and blood her as a warrior, with her then killing a Queen alien before the predator dies from his wounds, is all taken from the ''Alien vs Predator: Prey'' novel, in which exactly this happens between Machiko Noguchi and "Broken Tusk". Unlike Alexa, however, Machiko would go on to live with the Predators and eventually become fully accepted into their ranks (albeit while still facing some bigotry).

* AerosolFlamethrower: Charles Bishop Weyland does this as a HeroicSacrifice with a flare and a medicine inhaler. He gets butchered by a Predator hunter because he had a weapon, trumping the fact that he's a sick old man who the hunter would ignore otherwise.

* AbusivePrecursors: The ancient humans were basically used as incubation units for the xenomorphs, just so they could practice combat skills.

No bolding for work titles. See format rules on How To Create A Works Page, 4th paragraph "No bolding is used for work titles" and FAQ: "What emphasis do I use for the title?: Whatever you do, it does not belong in boldface-font."
'''''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 previous setting and had the conflict take place on contemporary Earth. That the movies weren't exactly embraced (though the first film was ''slightly'' better received by audiences), even by the fanbase, owes to the fact that the movies Human protagonists were the weakest element and simply weren't credible enough, with even the Aliens and Predators not being on form; the Predators of the first film came off as absurdly incompetent and TooDumbToLive, with their appearance being too bulky and clumsy looking, while the second film had the Aliens who were equally incompetent (if not more so), with their design also being disapproved of by the fans. This is coupled with a unbelievably sped up life-cycle and absolutely hated new one thanks to Chet the Predalien.

** One alien who attacks and disables one of Wolf's plasma cannons, hisses at him and ""slowly"" moves towards him. The results are predictable
