** In pre-production, Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme was supposed to play the Predator, but dropped out. Cue ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' and the original Predator, a DLC character, is able to face off against Van Damme {{Expy}} Johnny Cage.

Added DiffLines:

** The Predator sees humans through their body heat. Ten years after the first movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger would [[Film/BatmanAndRobin play]] a character that has no body heat to speak of.

** From the comic ''Bad Blood'', we have the eponymous Bad Blood himself. Unlike most Predators, or Yautja, who [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy value honor and the glory]] of [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame the hunt]], the Bad Blood is an AxCrazy SerialKiller hunted by his own people as a psychotic criminal. After crash-landing on Earth, the Bad Blood kills, [[ColdBloodedTorture tortures]], and [[MonstrousCannibalism cannibalizes]] an entire crew of other Predators before setting off on a killing spree of unsuspecting humans. The Bad Blood routinely makes his kills as gruesome and painful as possible, seeming to cheerfully acknowledge himself as a "sick, psychopathic bastard." While most Predators are no friend to humanity, the Bad Blood has the distinction of being a monster by both human and Yautja standards.

** ''VideoGame/PredatorConcreteJungle'': Isabella Borgia, later known as the supercomputer and heart of Neonopolis MOTHER, is the matriarch of the Borgia family and the root of all of Neonopolis's corruption and misery. Once the trophy wife of a notorious gangster, Isabella became so much more upon being doused in the blood of a Predator, using her newfound health and power to build the city of Neonopolis over the ashes of New Way City and hooking her own mind up to a supercomputer. Isabella secretly masterminds drug trade, widespread rape, murder, and human trafficking, and the black market arms trade to create a hellish environment suitable for the Yautja to hunt in, letting them slaughter civilians before capturing them and subjecting them to horrific experimentation, whilst also using their blood to rejuvenate herself. Isabella's ultimate goal is to use the genetic material of the Predators to create an entire army, which she plans to use in the bloody conquest first of Earth, and then of other worlds.

* AwesomeMusic: Creator/AlanSilvestri is on '''point''' for the first two movies (so much so that Creator/JohnDebney's score for ''Film/{{Predators}}'' is essentially an adaptation of Silvestri's work).

** Jesse Ventura (Blain) spends the first movie wearing a Creator/{{MTV}} t-shirt under his combat gear. While MTV still had some rebel cred in 1987, the sight of a hulking badass wearing the shirt of a network now mostly known for Tween reality shows is hysterical.

* SoBadItsGood: Some moments in ''Film/{{Predator}}'' and a good deal of ''Film/{{Predator 2}}'' could be considered this.

--->'''Jonesy:''' So why's this guy clicking to himself all the time? Is he just talking to himself the entire movie?
--->'''Commander Badass:''' He's actually droppin' some pretty good one-liners. Just told Jesse Ventura he's about to get a "hole" lot of free time.
--->'''Jonesy:''' Huh, I'm surprised puns translate that well.
--->'''Commander Badass:''' It's a surprisin'ly compatable language. Prob'ly part'a what made the Yautja some of our biggest trade partners.
