* EgomaniacHunter: For all their vaunted honor code, this is what the Predators really are when you boil it down; a race whose sole drive is to explore the galaxy, find the nastiest critters they can, then kill them to prove their own toughness, and be able to brag about what badasses they are.

That they destroy their technology and everything around them because their prey might use '''their''' technology against them makes sense but it's also telling that they don't simply not hunt species that can do that, the trophies are worth risking it.

* {{Gonk}}: With their decidedly non-human appearance, there's a reason the Predator's wear their helmets, whihc makes this a rare case where the monster falls into this trope.

** One of the reasons the Predators seem to enjoy hunting humans is that our sheer lack of physical prowess and technological advantages compared to them, means we have to resort to being very ingenious when it comes to finding ways to track down and kill our opponents. In short... ''we cheat''.

* ImplacableMan: Even without their armor Predators can take a hell of a beating before going down.

Eight ultra-[[BadAss badasses]] and one doctor from all around Earth are abducted and dropped onto a game reserve planet for hunting by a larger and more aggressive species/clan of Predators. They must find out what it is they are fighting and how to get off this planet, all without going for each other's throats. Produced by Creator/RobertRodriguez, the film acts as a sequel only to ''Film/{{Predator}}'' and ''Film/{{Predator 2}}'' (moreso the former).

* BadAss: The Predators themselves qualify, of course with their superior strength and technology.

* MenAreTheExpendableGender / SortingAlgorithmOfMortality: ''Predator'', ''Predator 2'' and ''Predators'' all have casts filled with numerous {{Badass}} men... and a lone woman. No prizes for guessing which characters are ''guaranteed'' to survive. Averted by the ''Alien vs. Predator'' films which both have multiple female roles, allowing some of them to become victims too. Also averted in Predator 2, when the City Hunters kills all of the armed commuters, male or female (there's a POV shot of the Predator breaking the neck of an armed elderly woman), during the train shootout.

* DevelopingDoomedCharacters: Both ''Predator'' and ''Predators'' spent quite a long time with only the humans, although this manages to work better than most as the protagonists get some action scenes before hand.

** It seems more along the lines of actual real life hunting when it comes to children and pregnant women, generally hunters try not to kill the young or females due to not wanting to depopulate your prey.


Added DiffLines:

The comic series ''Aliens vs. Predator'' takes place in the ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' universe. The plot is centered on a desert planet onto which the xenomorphs are seeded in preparation for a hunt by novice Predators. Later issues followed a human character as she attempts to live in, and eventually escape from, a Predator space ship. The original comics were very popular and critically acclaimed. The video games, mostly entering the BeatEmUp or FirstPersonShooter genres, earned many fans too. Later film adaptations... [[TheyJustDidntCare well...]]

* DishonoredDead: Predators who break their rules of honor (Such as those who hunt defenseless beings) are hunted down, have their bodies dismembered and desecrated, and have their heads simply disposed of rather than being kept as a trophy like they do with most of their kills.

Not a direct opposite of ''{{Prey}}'', despite what one might think.
