* PrivateMilitaryContractors: Dutch and his team are mercenaries; however, they specialize in hostage and rescue operations, turning down assignments that only involve killing people. [[spoiler:Accordingly, when Dutch learns that Dillon fabricated the hostage situation to trick Dutch into wiping out a rebel compound, the mercs are ''not happy.'']]

* BladeBelowTheShoulder: The Predator's gauntlet comes equipped with a pair of razor-sharp WolverineClaws. They're even somewhat pliable, since the Predator uses them to wrap around Dutch's head while sneaking up on him.

* EvilLaugh: The Predator gives one hell of a menacing cackle [[spoiler:[[DiedLaughing before it dies]],]] especially since his laugh is a hideously distorted mimic of Billy's laughter.

This film was a successful piece of action cinema because of its groundbreaking special effects, big-budget action sequences, and unique premise. Considered ''[[RatedMForManly the manliest movie ever made]]'', it's hard to argue the point: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers (of ''Franchise/{{Rocky}}'' fame), and Jesse Ventura had major roles in the film, and were all very big, strong guys who were prone to bleed and sweat (though they [[BadassBoast ain't got time to bleed]]). On the other hand, the emphasis on big, sweaty men being sweaty with each other in the jungle makes it one of the most HoYay films of all time, perhaps second only to Schwarzenegger's own ''Film/{{Commando}}''. The manliness is also a StealthParody, however, because it all vanishes in an instant when [[MeaningfulName the soldiers are no longer the top predators]].
