The 10 Greatest Death Scenes In The Predator Franchise
Spoiler Warning!
This story contains spoilers for every "Predator" movie — including "Prey."
The "Predator" franchise racks up quite the body count, but the defining kill has to go to Carl Weathers' Dillon. Dillon glimpses the Predator's cloaking camouflage hiding up in the trees, but before Dillon can get a good shot in, the Predator literally disarms him, and the flailing limb falls to the ground, while still firing the submachine gun.
Agent Keyes
When it comes to who got the greatest send-off in "Predator 2," the honor would have to go to Gary Busey, who played Peter Keyes, an assertive CIA agent. Keyes is taken out by a Plasmacaster blast to the face but shows up again later when the Predator uses its Smart Disc to slice him in half right at the torso.
The kill that ultimately best represents "Alien Vs. Predator" comes from a Predator named Scar, who splits a Facehugger in half when it lunges at him in a sneak attack. The Xenomorph's slow decapitation is always good for a laugh because of the dumbfounded expression forever plastered on its face.
In "Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem," Dale finds himself trapped between a Xenomorph and a Predator named Wolf, who blasts the Xenomorph, which causes the space bug's acidic blood to spew all over Dale's face and down his throat. The main takeaway is that toxic masculinity doesn't pay; it just caves in your face with Xenomorph juice.
Another "Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem" death involves Jesse running ahead of the others and getting brutally flung and pinned against the wall by Wolf's Shuriken disc. This is more of a shock because it occurs unexpectedly to a character who appeared to have a decent chance of making it alive.
