Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: The film's own director, Nimrod Antal, shares a first name with the Babylonian god of hunting as well as a prominent hunter from [[Literature/TheBible The Old Testament]]. [[ContrivedCoincidence Considering what the movie he's directing is about...]]

* HollywoodTactics: For all the talk about how good Predators had been getting at hunting people, they really don't show it.

** If you know anything about the [[RapePillageAndBurn RUF]], you'll realize that Mombasa is probably the worst person out of the entire group. However, given the M.O. of the RUF [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation it's possible]] that [[TragicVillain Mombasa]] [[ChildSoldier wasn't given a choice about joining them]].

Added DiffLines:

*BeingWatched: Mombasa is visibly more alert than the other group members. When investigating the corpse of a previous victim, he is the only one to notice that something is very wrong, and watches the nearby trees where an invisible Predator is sitting. He does this later again in the Predator camp; when Royce seems to have disappeared and left them, he quickly realises that Royce is still there, watching them. His ability to detect when he's being watched seems reminiscent of Billy's in the first movie.

* TheWorldsExpertOnGettingKilled: Noland. Interestingly, while the Predators have a "sportive" attitude about the killing for most of the movie, the one finding Royce kills him immediately with his shoulder cannon at maximum power, so maybe they were simply ''that'' pissed off at him.
