* BreadEggsMilkSquick: Stans has two great moments of this. First he talks about doing a whole bunch of cocaine, which Edwin finds funny. Then Stans starts talking about rape, which Edwin finds [[SarcasmMode somewhat less funny]]. The second is when he shows off his tattoo, leading to...

* 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.

%%%%%** Noland calls Stans [[ComicBook/GreenLantern Agent Orange]] when he's messing with his stuff. [[spoiler:[[{{Hypocrite}} He then proceeds to attempt to kill the group for their stuff]], which is exactly the kind of thing Agent Orange would do.]]

* {{Badass}}: [[WorldOfBadass Every single character]] except for the doctor can be considered one, to greater or lesser extents. Special mention goes to Hanzo, who is the only character to fight an unweakened Predator in a one-on-one battle [[spoiler:and [[MutualKill get a draw]]]]. With [[KatanasAreJustBetter a katana]], no less.

* BackToBackBadasses - Several, usually with Royce, Isabella, and a third person.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Isabella and Royce are the lone survivors, both wounded and out of ammo and with no way home, only for more monsters and humans to get airdropped in, about to repeat the events of the film. This means Predators, which means there's another ship to hijack, and more allies to help them out...]] Of course, this is an obvious SequelHook.

* CloserToEarth: Lone woman Isabella is the most compassionate character (though several of the men have their moments). Yes, ''the sniper'' is the most compassionate, and is thoroughly disgusted at Royce's attempts to leave the group or use them for his own gain.

** When Edwin is injured, Royce wants to leave him behind, but Isabella protests that "He's one of us". Later, Edwin will argue "Please, I'm one of you," in very different circumstances.

* MadeOfIron: The last of the Predators. [[spoiler: In a short span of time it's stabbed repeatedly by Stans, stabbed and wounded further by the classic Predator, blasted by a multitude of grenades point-blank, suffers multiple blows to the head from a wrench, shot by Isabella's sniper rifle, and torn up when Royce uses an axe on it.]] In spite of all that, it had enough life left in it to necessitate [[spoiler: Royce systematically hacking it apart with that axe.]]

* MaybeEverAfter: Movie convention would seem to force Royce and Isabella together, but their circumstances and his personality leave the coupling in question.
* MercyKill: Isabella tries to do this for [[spoiler: Cuchillo, only to have him call out for help again after being shot through the heart, implying his cries were actually a recording played by the Predators.]]

* NoOneGetsLeftBehind: Royce does not subscribe to this, always prompting others to move on with "He's done." The first time, Isabella listens, but she refuses the second time, citing the risk of HeWhoFightsMonsters, and that if they give up their humanity to survive they’ve already lost.

* SpikesOfVillainy: The alien hunting dogs have more tusks, horns and antlers than anything ought to, but it sure makes them look wicked awesome.

* WeHaveReserves: Royce uses the rest of the team to set off a trap, disappearing to observe how the Predators operate. Needless to say, Isabella's pissed at him in the aftermath.
