Played By: Carl Weathers
A former teammate of Dutch and current CIA agent, sent along with Dutch's team.
- Agent Scully: Dillon doesn't believe the Predator is what the team say it is.
"You saying that Blain and Hawkins were killed by a fucking lizard? That's a bullshit psyche job. There's two to three men out there at the most. Fucking lizard."
- An Arm and a Leg: Gets his arm shot off by the Predator before he dies.
- Asshole Victim: A shady government agent who tricked his former best friend and his team into going on an assassination mission.
- Black Best Friend: Was this to Dutch before the events of the movie.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: A lighter case. His ulterior motive for accompanying the team is to use them to eliminate the guerillas under the context of a rescue mission.

- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice
- The Lancer

- Bash Brothers: With Mac.
- The Big Guy: With the exception of Dutch, Blain is the physically largest and most imposing. He also has a huge gun.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Mac.
- Must Have Nicotine: Unlike most examples of this trope, Blain gets his nicotine via chewing tobacco, and claims it's made him "a goddamn sexual tyrannosaurus".
- Politically Incorrect Hero: He makes a homophobic remark.
- Sacrificial Lion: Most were probably expecting Hawkins to bow out soon, but Blain 'I ain't got time to bleed' Cooper? His early death really establishes the Predator as a terrifying threat.
Played By: Sonny Landham
A Native American tracker.
- Badass Native: Pretty much his entire role.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He takes on the Predator by himself to give the team time to escape.
- Magical Native American: Billy seems to have a preternatural sense of what the Predator is from the beginning.
- Off with His Head!: While the Predator does this to its victims as a general rule, Billy is the only person we see this happen to, posthumously.

The team's radio operator and technical expert.
