* FanserviceExtra: Teri Weigel (who went on to be a prominent porn star) spends 90% of her small screen time completely naked.

* MoneyIsNoPower: The second Predator slaughter we see on-screen is prefaced with a Jamaican hit squad entering a Colombian gang leader's apartment (while he's having sex with his girlfriend) and getting ready to cut his heart out as a Voodoo ritual ([[RuthlessForeignGangsters and intimidating his fellow gang members)]].

--->'''Jamaican thug''': This is not about money, this is about '''power'''! This is about giving your friends a message: "You're ''history''!" (starts cutting the Colombian's chest open).
