Predators die in literally every film they have appeared in, always taken out by normal (experienced warriors usually) but still normal humans.

Do you want to address the circumstances under which they die?

Predators die in the movies because...

(1) They play the villains and villains tend to lose in movies

(2) So how do the writers ensure that the protagonist win? They make the predators cocky. The preds underestimate their prey, or they toy with their prey, or they gloat over their prey instead of killing their prey swiftly.

It's not like Arnold dominates jungle hunter in Predator. The predator passes up the opportunity to take Arnold's skull on several occasions. The predator wants to savour the pleasure of the hunt. He toys with Arnold in the end. Only then is Arnold able to spring the trap on the predator.

Good points but my point still remains that they are still able to be killed by conventional means. In Predators 2 of the super predators get beat by conventional weapons (with the help of a sniper bullet in one case) and I wouldnt rule out that out of 1000 spartans at some point one of them doesn't successfully use one of the preds weapons against them. In a fight without "the writers" ensuring good guys win bad guys lose I still believe the predators hubris gets the better of them and then the overwhelming numbers take advantage.

@savagedragon: Context, in Predator, Jungle Hunter killed the hell out of US multiple special forces units sent into the jungle, Arnie survived because he was lucky as all hell, he stood no chance otherwise. In Predator 2, City Hunter got caught off guard by a black ops unit that prepared extensively for the creature's capture or destruction, but they were killed to a man and Glover, like Arnie, was getting thoroughly bodied until he jammed the unseen smart disc into City Hunter's abdomen. Celtic and Chopper were killed by Grid, and Scar was killed by the Queen in AvP, Wolf was killed by a damn nuclear strike in AvP2 after killing numerous xenomorphs in both ranged and close combat along with stalemating a predalien. In this scenario, there are a thousand Spartans, and that's a lot of damn people, but they're equipped with bronze age weapons and are practically naked for all intents and purposes and they're going up against superhuman aliens with tech far in advance of their own, capable of engaging and killing multiple targets at a time with their ranged weaponry while possessing the ability to engage the Spartans on their own terms through their superior foot speed, their ability to go vertical, and cloaking.

Also, that's a horrible point you brought up, because all of the Spartans die in their own movie.


All good points but Dead is dead and the Predators have been proven to toy with their prey to the point of hubris and defeat. Point is Yautjas are very skilled and tough with great tech but they can be killed by conventional means. In predators the protagonist literally bludgeons the crap out of the top class of predator, then takes a sniper bullet and then gets beheaded. Tough son of a gun but nonetheless my money is on 1000 warriors even with their lack of armor.

Predators die in literally every film they have appeared in, always taken out by normal (experienced warriors usually) but still normal humans. Of coarse 1000 vs 3 means that Spartans win. Predators are awesome but not that awesome.

Lol yes I agree Scarlett Witch's costumes has always been AWFUL.

My point zoomed over your head like a jet plane.

not really. Your saying that cosplayers costume look silly whereas in your opinion the movies do a better job in capturing them in a realistic fashion. My point is that the costumes from the cannon are ludicrous, in this case wanda's costume, is a horrible..really horrible, and an outrageous design.

Nah dude, that's the opposite of what I'm saying. And there's nothing horrible or outrageous about Wanda's costume. What there's a ban on red now, as well as purple?

wandas costume has always been sooo baddd. looks like party city Halloween mixed with 80s dance scene sluts. I sigh every time I see it.
