Blood Knight: He freely admits that he loves to kill and has no moral qualms about it.
Changed My Mind, Kid: After apparently turning his back on the other survivors to get to an alien ship, he comes back and saves Isabelle's life.
Combat Pragmatist: Possibly the biggest in the Predator series. He has no qualms in creating more fire around him, blocking Mr. Black's thermal vision, or using the body of a teammate to trap Mr. Black.
Morality Pet: For a long time Isabelle's faith in Royce is the only external sign the audience gets that he's not an irredeemable prick. He saves her life more than once, in the last case passing up a chance to use a Predator ship in order to come back and help her.
Small Girl, Big Gun: Though not of cartoonish proportions, it's a long-barreled, high-caliber sniper rifle, and she's rather petite.
Survivors Guilt: She is haunted by the loss of her spotter, who was killed in action shortly before she was kidnapped by the Predators.
The Berserker: When we first see Stans, he's fighting Mombasa with a knife. Later, Stans gets stabby when pinned by one of the Tusker beasts. He jumps on a Predator and starts stabbing it in the back, and isn't the slightest bit afraid when it pulls out his spine. He'll fight anything and without an ounce of fear.
Token Evil Teammate: There are quite a few people on this team that would probably qualify as evil or close enough to count, but he's probably the most evil and deranged. He provokes Even Evil Has Standards from multiple characters.
What the Hell, Hero?: Of all people, he joins Isabelle in directing a minor one at Royce after Mombassa's death.
Royce: I needed to know who we're up against. Now I do. Stans: A man is dead because of that. Royce: This morning you were ready to kill him. Stans: Well it ain't this goddamn morning, is it?
"I am ready to die. Are you?"

Even Evil Has Standards: Sure Edwin is a serial killer, but even he seems to find Stans assertion that when they get home, Stans will do a ton of cocaine and rape multiple women more than a little horrific. Then again, he may have been pretending.
Kick the Dog: Even before The Reveal, he pulls a real dick move. When he's injured and trying to convince the others to help him, he goes all I Have a Family, and pulls out the photo Nicolai had shown him of Nicolai's kids. Keep in mind that Nicolai died to save this guy.
Non-Action Guy: He mostly gets through combat by ducking behind Isabelle or Nikolai.
A veteran warrior who's survived in the game preserve for many seasons.
Badass: Sure, he may be focused on keeping a low profile rather than constantly fighting Predators, but he claims to have survived at least 7 hunting seasons on the world (or as his imaginary companion asserts, it's actually closer to 10). Either way, that's still pretty impressive.
Even more so when you consider it's implied that the conflict he was plucked from was Vietnam.
He also trekked along the Game Preserve Planet. That alone gets you points.
Slowly Slipping Into Evil: He appears to be friendly at first, but in actuality he wants to kill other people dropped on the planet and get their supplies. This is likely because of all the shit he has since had gotten there and playing the game for himself, and killing those he comes across.
Badass: His NECA action figure biography states he was the youngest ever Predator to kill a Xenomorph and complete the rite of passage.
Big Bad: Is the leader of the Black Predators, and according to his bio the Badass Teacher for Tracker and Falconer.
Blue and Orange Morality: The Black Predators clearly do not share the Classic Predators strict code of behavior. It's possible their actions would in fact be frowned upon by their own culture, though that is not explicitly stated.
Combat Pragmatist: He accepts the Classic Predator's challenge to a fist-fight, but once Classic starts scoring some hits, Berserker resorts to using his plasma blaster.
Dramatic Unmask: The only one in the entire movie (at least from an actual Predator).
Obviously Evil: The eyes on his mask glow Hellish-Red, compared to the yellowish glow of all the other Predators. His red-stained dreadlocks don't help much either.
Unflinching Walk: When he detonates his own ship he just walks away casually without even looking back at the end results.
