  1. Summary​​


    The "Predator" is an advanced and cryptic extraterrestrial species. The predator debuted in the film Predator (1987) and would return in the following films: Predator 2 (1990), Predators (2010), Alien vs. Predator (2004) and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007).

    Predator is best recognized as a culturally savage hunter in which it performs trophy hunting of other species for sport.

    The design of Predator is credited to Stan Winston. Who ironically was speaking with Aliens director; James Cameron, on a flight to Japan in which Cameron suggested the predator's mandibles.

    Overview


    Predators are known to have a humanoid shape yet possess some features that make it distinguishable from a human being. They stand at a greater height than that of a human, have mandibles similar to arthropods and long, dreadlock-like quills along with reptilian type flesh.
     
    They show resilience to certain damage and have been seen to recover from multiple gunshot wounds fairly quick. They possess greater strength than most athletic adult humans and can destroy dense solid objects like steel or concrete. They move nimbly at great heights, such as jungle trees and high-rise buildings.
     
    Predators have a preference for hot and humid climates although have been seen to be able to tolerate extreme cold climates as well. Their blood is phosphor green in color and illuminates.


    The predator's vision is debatable; portrayed as a red hue with limited shades in Predator (1987) or infrared in Predator 2 (1990). The hunting helmets owned by predators increases their ability to see in a far greater spectrum. A good example is the high frequency ultraviolet seen in the Aliens vs Predator (2004). The helmets also filter any ambiance that may disrupt the predator's awareness of its surrounding.

    The predator is capable of sustaining itself within Earth's atmosphere but is seen using a breathing apparatus after losing its helmet in Predator 2 (1990). In Predator 2 (1990), the government team that have been chasing the predator have found out that it feeds regularly on the meat stored in the municipal slaughterhouse perhaps implying that it is a carnivorous creature.
     
    Throughout their film discography, predators have been changing their cosmetic appearance with each new installment.
     
    In Predator 2 (1990), the main Predator was designed to look more urban. A tribal ornamentation was implemented on the forehead, brighter skin color and a greater number of fangs.
     
    In Alien vs. Predator (2004), the appearance of the predators seemed to be more bulkier. This also included a reduction in head and waist size, broader shoulders, a more muscular physique, piranha-like teeth on the upper jaw, and dry skin.
     
    In Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007), the predator reverted back to its thin and sleek design.
     
    The Super Predators in Predators (2010) were designed as leaner and taller than the "classic" Predator design, with longer faces, tighter armor and with more swept back dreadlocks. They also had a larger skull with open layers of reddish flesh.
