  1. Grid

     
    The antagonist in the Alien vs. Predator (2004) movie. Grid battled one of the Predators which lead to suffering from a tightening net. Fortunately, the acidic blood that Grid possessed melted, enabling Grid to give a finishing blow. Grid would ultimately be left with a unique battle wound that distinguishes the Xenomorph from the rest of its pack. Paul W. S. Anderson intended for the Xenomorphs to have larger hands and darker complexions which separated it from the previous Alien: Resurrection (1997) Xenomorph. 

    Bouvetoyan Queen & Ancient Queen

                   The Bouvetoyan Queen first appeared in Alien vs. Predator (2004). It was the Queen that laid the egg that contained Grid's Facehugger. This Queen is different from James Cameron's Queen in Aliens (1986) because it has a bulkier build. The Ancient Queen first appeared in Aliens vs. Predator 2010 and is built much like the Bouvetoyan Queen. Both Queens were stored in temples far underground, albeit on different planets. The Ancient Queen seems to be more rigid in appearance but still functions in the same utility as the Bouvetoyan Queen; make eggs specifically for the Predator hunt. The Ancient Queen laid the egg that contained Six's Facehugger.

    Predalien

    The hybrid Alien from Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007). This Alien appeared as the film's central villain. In the movie, the Predalien is capable of incubating hosts by regurgitating into their mouths. The reason for this, apparently, is that she was molting into a Queen according to Collin Strause during his stay on the AvP Galaxy forum in 2007. Before the film, the Predalien first appeared in the comic Aliens vs. Predator: Duel. It was eliminated by the comic's protagonists, Light Stepper and Glass. A Predalien was also one of the playable character campaigns in the expansion pack known as  Aliens vs. Predator 2: Primal Hunt

    Empress

                   The Empress was the grand Alien Queen found in Aliens vs. Predator 2. It is much larger than any other Queen found within the universe. The Empress was kidnapped by a Weyland Yutani excavation crew on LV 1201. This triggered a frenzy in the hive as multiple queens competed with one another for dominance over the absent throne. The playable Alien character infiltrates the compound where the Empress is held captive and rescues her. The Empress' hive is an expansive hive that seems to hold a very intrinsic hierarchal structure.

    Six

     
    A special Alien with higher than normal intelligence, Six first appeared in the Aliens vs. Predator 2010 game as the Alien campaign's protagonist. Six managed to break free from its enclosure and shackles and assisted in releasing the rest of the Xenomorphs along with the Ancient Queen. Months later, Six is awakened to fight off a Marine incursion after the Marlowe was destroyed by Predators. Eventually, Six slaughters its way through Marines and Predators just before the Ancient Queen is destroyed. With the Queen dead, Six becomes weak and is soon captured by Groves' team. Once onboard a spacecraft, Six morphs into a Queen itself ultimately saving the legacy of its hive.
  2. Scar, Celtic and Chopper

    These three Predators are the initiates going through the Rite of Passage in the Alien vs. Predator (2004) movie. (From left to right) Scar, Celtic, and Chopper devastate the crew at the entrance of the tunnel to the temple at the Bouvetoya abandoned whaler complex. Chopper is killed by Grid along with Celtic. Scar, on the other hand, survived the encounter and eliminated Weyland along with many Xenomorphs when he acquired his Shoulder Cannon. Unfortunately, he was impregnated by a Facehugger which would eventually become the Predalien in  Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007).

    The Ancient (Predator Elder)

                   The leader of the Predator clan that belong to the initiates in the movie, Alien vs. Predator (2004). This Predator could also perhaps be the Predator seen in the flashbacks of the early civilization, albeit, with a more younger appearance that closely resembles the initiates. This is suspected due to the mask looking like the mask in the flashback. This Elder Predator looks a lot different from the one seen in Predator 2 as it seems to be sporting a more formal set of armor along with a cape. The Elder Predator has not made any appearances after his premier.

    Wolf

     
    The Elite Task Force Predator of Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007). This Predator is usually a fan favorite seeing as it appeared to be more distinct than most of the other Predators seen on the big screen. Wolf is tasked with eradicating the Alien infestation within the small suburban town of Gunnison, Colorado. It seems from what we can observe from the film is that Wolf is specially trained for Xenomorphs since he has an acid scar on his face along with a missing mandible on his upper left mouth. The Brothers Strause removed the bulkiness from the previous Alien vs. Predator (2004) film and brought back the design seen in the original Predator (1987).

    Predator Prince

                   This Predator was the protagonist for the Predator Campaign in  Aliens vs. Predator 2. According to Rykov's logs (essentially the story for the Predator Campain), the Predator is said to be a prince due to markings found on his mask. On the second level, the Predators from the hunting party are captured and the Prince Predator pursues their captors into a large complex. Eventually, he meets the same fate and is captured himself until the Marine and Alien from their respective campaigns create conditions for him to escape. This Predator seems to be made to take after the appearance of the original Predator from the 1987 film.

    Dark

     
    The protagonist Predator for the Predator campaign in  Aliens vs. Predator 2010 . This Predator was dispatched to take out an Alien infestation. The entire mothership made its way to BG 386 and ensured to rescue Dark after the mission was over. Dark managed to be a very skilled warrior, taking out a Praetorian and a Predalien, he wore the mask of an Ancient Predator whom also was recognized as a fearless and honorable warrior. Dark's original mask is also based on the Classic Predator mask in the original Predator film from 1987.
  3. Space Crafts and Vehicles

     
    The USS Marlowe
    This craft appeared in the Aliens vs. Predator 2010   game for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC platform. The ship is ruthlessly destroyed by an incoming Predator clan. It was the ship that belonged to the crew of the central protagonist Rookie. It is inspired by James Cameron's space frigate seen in the movie Aliens. The Marlowe was sent on a mission to investigate a colony overrun by Xenomorphs.
    Predator Dispatcher
    This craft appeared in the Aliens vs. Predator 2010   game for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC platform. This ship appeared when Dark, the Predator protagonist, is dropped off on BG 386. Not much is known about this craft other than it is possible to inspect it in the very beginning of the first mission. This photo was created by BugBot64. 
    ​​
    Predator Mothership
    This craft appeared in the Alien vs. Predator (2004) film.  It is much larger and sleeker than the original Predator ship seen in the earlier Predator films. The mothership hosts a vast array of hunters and is more sophisticated than the United Space Colonial Marine ships. The ship has the capability of launching plasma charged energy beams and can launch other Predator ships. For this reason, the mothership operates somewhat like a space destroyer.
    Predator Pod
    This craft appeared in the Alien vs. Predator (2004) film . Merely just a method of dropping off Predator warriors, the pod seems to be nothing out of the ordinary. Originally seen very early on in the film, Paul W. S Anderson intended for a hand to reach out upon its door when it made its first appearance on screen. The pod does not seem to make any further appearances throughout the rest of the Aliens vs. Predator universe. 

    Elite Private Ship
    This craft appeared in the Alien vs. Predator: Requiem (2007) film. This craft was used by the Wolf Predator after he responded to a distress signal set out by fallen Predators. The ship is a lot smaller than most of the other ships seen throughout the franchise. It has the capability to travel through space at high speeds. It can only carry one Predator at a time very similar to a jet fighter. It is still yet to be confirmed if the pilot manually operates this craft.
    Predator Scout Ship
    This craft appeared in the Alien vs. Predator comics of the early 90's. This ship shares uncanny characteristics with the Predator vessel found in the film, Predator 2. This ship hosted a bunch of hunters that would occasionally challenge each other in hand to hand combat. Machiko, the protagonist of early Aliens vs. Predator comics, resided in a Predator Scout Ship when she was initiated into the clan. 

     
    Predator Egg Planter
    This craft appeared in the first issue of the Aliens vs. Predator comic. The main purpose of this vehicle is to implant Xenomorph eggs on foreign worlds. This ensures that the Predators could hunt Xenomorphs on multiple different types of terrains. The ship looks like a cicada and releases eggs from its back. When it appeared in the comics, it was the sole reason for the infestation that happened in the colony.
  4. Temples

     
    Within the Aliens vs. Predator lore, temple's play a huge significance in the universe. In fact, some of the popular titles within the franchise, particularly the (2004) film and (2010) game, have made temples a centerfold within their settings. Predators commence a rite of passage for initiates to take on Aliens within these said temples. They have appeared in many different comics and a level within the (1999) AvP Classic game had temples in its Alien campaign. Although the temple is canon within the AvP universe, the same can not be said for the Alien universe.  The Predator universe, on the other hand, refers to these temples as being canon and thus are apart of the general lore surrounding it. In the (2004) Alien vs. Predator film, it has been established that these temples were constructed by Predators for the purpose of bringing humans for sacrifice. The humans used for sacrifice would be incubated by a Facehugger who would then give birth to an Alien. These Aliens would be contained and then let loose within the temples so that Predators can defeat them for their initiation while contemporarily making trophies of them.

     Alien vs. Predator 2004

                   Although a temple did appear in  Alien versus Predator Classic the developers at the time probably intended for them to belong to the Engineers. It was not until Paul W. S. Anderson's Alien vs. Predator that we would see a full pyramid established in the mythos. In the film, the Predators gather Aliens and use them specifically to incubate hosts so that they may produce a healthy Alien for hunting. As Paul had stated, the Predators hunt Aliens for a rite of passage. This means that the Predators seen in the temple of the film were juvenile and most likely there to surpass their initiation. The temple on Earth existed only within the Antarctic and was estimated to be beyond 10 000 years old. Most of the temples were overrun with Aliens as the Predators lost their control over them. Consequently, this leads to the entire civilization being wiped out overnight and the Predators destroying the entire infestation via self-destruct.

    Aliens vs. Predator 2010

     
    The Aliens vs. Predator 2010 game is where the temples truly developed their form and planted itself as a characteristic common among the Aliens vs. Predator mythos. The temple in this game held a prehistoric Alien Queen that was extracted by the Weyland Yutani company. Very similar to the film that predated it, the temples are usually disturbed by an expedition of colonists or researchers. Inside the very vaults of the temple, we find traps where Aliens are released giving an impression that the Predators didn't merely just breed them; they weaponized them. The temple was located deep enough within the planet that we can see the molten rock from around the chasm beneath the entrance bridge to it. Another interesting feature of this temple was that it was also a tomb for an ancient Predator warrior. The planet seemed to hold architecture fairly similar to the design of the temple. This game was created by a developing team known as Rebellion who was also behind  Aliens Versus Predator (AvP Classic) . There was a lot of inspiration that was taken from the AVP films as we see a number of reoccurring characters along with other concepts found in the game.
  5. Summary

     
    Aliens vs Predator; one of the most recognized crossovers ever created. Aliens vs Predator debuted as a Dark Horse special that pitted the monsters together between 1989 and 1990. The series would then expand to games and films. Although the game titles were well received by critics during their time the films were not. This caused a bit of a demerit to the franchise's overall reputation.

        Regardless, the materials provided more into the species respectively and allowed for a more larger scope to be observed. Aliens vs. Predator (2004) brought forth the notion that predators use ritual pyramids to hunt aliens for sport and tribal initiation something not confirmed within the expanded universe. 


    The expansive universe also includes novels and comics which delves in more depth of the franchise as a whole.

    Overview


           Aliens and Predators have a rivaling history that goes as far back as the early civilization of humanity as seen on Aliens vs. Predator (2004).
    Predators breed Aliens for the sole purpose of placing them in an arena to hunt them specifically. Once the battle has turned into a success, the Predators are then initiated as a full-fledged warrior in their culture.


    Although the aliens are hunted for sport, they are in no way considered unhazardous due to the practice. The alien still maintains the identity of being the most dangerous organism in the universe. As such this is why the predators choose to hunt them specifically and make them part of their traditions. 

    The temple concept has been known as a staple trademark for Aliens vs Predator, being included in several expanded universe materials such as later comics and games. Most notably, the Aliens vs Predator (2010) game centralized a large portion of its setting to the temple idea in which it is lodged beneath the surface. 

    The consequence of failing the initiation can be seen as somewhat messy seeing as the aliens unmatched would find a way to expand their presence on the planet they are residing on.

     This is met with a certain compromise. In Aliens vs Predator Requiem (2007); an elite predator who works as an exterminator embarks on an objective that requests of them to completely exterminate all alien life forms in case of a containment breach.

      The Elite Predator equips itself specifically to eradicate the alien threat with acid proof weapons and armor as well as a liquid that melts alien corpses. 

     This is prompted to the elite via distress signal in which it prepares immediately for a haste journey through the cosmos to arrive on the targeted planet, in this case, Earth...
