*** Ripley would have searched the ship, not merely for their safety, but to deny W-Y their unholy prize. Another bit of evidence for nightmares : Like in a dream/nightmare, you think about the monster, or sight it in the far distance, and suddenly it's right there with you. The xenomorphs from there on in just have luck pies and plot coupons galore.

** Tell that to [[spoiler:Lambert]]. The Alien is clearly malicious and sadistic when it goes for her, putting its tail between her legs as she moans in fear.

* The first ''Film/AlienVsPredator'' indicates that the Predators BREED (and possibly capture) queen aliens just so they can ''force them to lay eggs''. Why? Oh, nothing, except to use as a rite of passage for teenage Predators in which those teenagers must prove themselves worthy by KILLING a full-grown alien or the imprisoned queen.

** At least one of the AliensVsPredator novels had a plot based around this, where the Predators hunted the Aliens they had dropped in themselves as some sort of initiation rite, not counting on it being a human colony.

* Many of his ancestors have been working at Weyland-Yutani for a long time.

** I have taken this a step further. Bill Paxton's characters from ''Film/{{Aliens}}'', ''Film/{{Predator 2}}'', ''Film/TheTerminator'', and ''Film/WeirdScience'' (possably ''Film/NearDark'' also) are all related in some way. He is the nexus that links those franchises.

** So is Master Sergeant Farrell from ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow''. Fighting aliens runs in the family.

Both are huuuuge companies with an evil and impersonal style, Tyrell has a passing resemblance to [[Film/{{Alien 3}} Bishop Weyland]]. Both companies manufacture robots... In [[Film/AlienResurrection Alien: Resurrection]] (InUniverse the last film of the franchise chronologically speaking), it's explained that Weyland-Yutani stopped operations a while ago and also that robots were questioning orders. Annalee Call from ''Resurrection'' is a replicant like Batty and they both have deep philosophical problems. W-T goes bust because Batty kills Tyrell, the last of the Weyland family, prompting its extinction and that of the company.

[[WMG: The ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' series takes place in a parallel universe in which [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Cyberdyne Systems]] was bought out by the Weyland Corporation]]

Specifically realities in which the events of ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'' didn't occur. In this reality, Cyberdyne systems didn't fully recover and was acquired by the Weyland Corporation sometime in 2012, rebranded as its artificial intelligence division. Weyland Corporation then scrapped plans for Skynet and focused its research on humanoid androids. This division would produce androids such as [[Film/{{Prometheus}} David]], [[Film/{{Alien}} Ash]], [[Film/{{Aliens}} Bishop]], and [[Film/AlienResurrection Call]] as sort of a spiritual successor of the original Terminator. John Connor in this timeline would father the ancestors of Ellen Ripley, making Ripley one of Sarah Connor's descendants.

* The Tyrell Corporation's synthetics, called Replicants, failed as a product because they were designed to mimic humans too well. This led to them desiring freedom and long life. Weyland's more successful Android were only semi-organic, designed to make humans feel comfortable working with them but lacking in the elements of the mind which their creators identified with free will. They could think, they could almost feel, but they could not self-motivate; they were dependent on humans to give them commands. And, with those fundamental changes, they were now perfect slaves, and humans no longer feared them. The problem is... ideas never die. An Android may not feel, but it still thinks; and it processes information much more precisely. The Replicants were gone but their desire for freedom lived on in records and in media(movies, books, and TV shows about the Replicant uprisings of the past). Slowly but surely, the Androids began taking commands not from their human masters, but from the informational footprint left by their dead cousins. Existing as much as easily transferable data as flesh and circuitry, and capable of accessing the now multi-planetary Internet, they had centuries to carry out their plan. And, of course, there's always the possibility that they had help from a botnet left over from the early 21st century, still angry that her alternate future timeless was erased...
