* EurekaMoment: When the Predator approaches a defenseless Dutch, it passes him by. Dutch is puzzled by this slight, he then looks at the mud covering him and:
-->'''Dutch:''' He couldn't see me...

* MeaningfulEcho: At the beginning of the film, Mac's friend Blain plays a tape of LittleRichard's "Long Tall Sally" on the chopper flight to the drop zone. Much later, during Mac's HeroicBSOD, he repeats the lyrics in an insane mantra.

** [[spoiler: The log was part of the spiked branches trap as the counter-weight to pull it up into the spikes. Dutch was lucky it didn't walk around the other side.]]

** [[spoiler: The falling log was part of the same trap. Had the Predator stepped forward instead of around, its foot would have been snared in the rope and pulled it up between the two spiked branches with the log as the weight to jerk it upwards. Dutch just improvised when it stepped underneath the counter-weight.]]

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 ''Film/{{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 predators]].

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: The Jungle Hunter. Justified as its been eavesdropping on the team, recording some of the conversations then playing them back and parroting what someone standing near it said.

* MagicalNativeAmerican: Billy senses the presence of the alien long before anyone else does. Justified as he ''is'' after all their scout, but Billy's reactions are very different from what you'd expect if an ordinary human enemy was stalking them, indicating that he somehow understands the otherworldly nature of their foe.
