* Not long after this, Dutch emerges from the team's hiding place, ostensibly to bait the Predator into their trap. He carefully navigates the network of snares and tripwires, even getting momentarily stuck on one, as he moves from cover into the open. He stands there a moment, staring into the jungle, and sees no sign of the creature. Just as he starts to turn around, a snare is triggered and with an awful roar the Predator flies into the air, hoisted by the net.
** The JumpScare alone is bad enough, but FridgeHorror comes into play once you consider that in order to have triggered that trap the Predator must have been ''standing right behind Dutch, totally invisible, about to stab him in the back.''
** The FridgeHorror gets even worse the more you think about it. Did it creep between Dutch and the rest of the team completely undetected? How long was it there for? Was it standing there in front of them, invisible, the entire time and Dutch walked right past it?

* The scene where Dutch ends up careening off a waterfall and falls into the pool of water below to escape the Predator, and the Predator follows him. Dutch emerges above water, and is able to catch his breath in a few moments of silence...[[JumpScare and then the Predator falls into the pool a few yards behind him]], complete with a ScareChord. And since the Predator is still using its invisibility camouflage at this point, we still don't see the Predator proper when it hits the water--[[NothingIsScarier just the resulting splash]], which makes the water look like ''[[UncannyValley it rose upwards by itself]]''. It's no surprise that Dutch upon hearing the splash ''immediately'' start swimming towards land, with an absolutely terrified expression.

* The Predator in general. Besides its [[BlatantLies delightful]] [[NightmareFace face,]] it can camouflage itself, making it near invisible (unless water comes into play), mimic human voices to lure victims and collects human skulls and spines as trophies. Not to mention, it has quite the array of frightening roars, screams and clicking noises.

* The part where Dillion looks around the jungle after hearing "anytime" and the Predator's cackles. As he looks around (we see from Dillion's point of view), you can clearly see [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xofywOoNak&t=0m57s the Predator's invisible silhouette standing on the branch]] which [[DoubleTake Dillion looked past before looking at it again]].

to:

* The part where Dillion searches for Mac, only to find him dead. Suddenly he hears Mac behind him ("anytime"), causing him to quickly turn around. Dillion looks around up on the jungle after hearing "anytime" and the trees (we see from his point of view), with Predator's cackles. cackles echoing. As he looks around (we see from Dillion's point of view), he's looking, you can clearly see [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xofywOoNak&t=0m57s the Predator's invisible silhouette standing on the branch]] which [[DoubleTake Dillion looked past before looking at it again]]. This time the silhouette is more obvious, with glowing eyes, which Dillion sees [[OhCrap with widen eyes]].



* A sort of reveal after Mac dies: the laser beam's convergence at the Predator's shoulder mount gives viewers the impression it shot Mac from quite a distance... then it ''moves'', and we see that it was literally standing [[ParanoiaFuel right on top of him.]]

* The Predator's laugh [[spoiler:when it activates the self-destruction mechanism to kill itself.]] It starts out deep and slow, then suddenly bursts into a high, loud, very human-like maniacal cackle.

* The Killers over in the comics. Take a Predator and remove all forms of honor like not killing those that can't fight back and limiting their tech to make things even. They also use Xenomorphs as hunting dogs.

* During operations in Iraq, a unit of U.S. Marines used the Predator's laugh as a psyops tool while clearing a section of Fallujah, by blasting it across the city over loudspeakers. This backfired, because the Marines actually going door-to-door in the city got so weirded out that they radioed back to request that the recording be turned off.
