Berserker, also known as Mr. Black or Super Black,[2] was a Yautja Super Predator and the Clan Leader of the Super Predator Clan on the Game Preserve Planet. As well as an ongoing rivalry with the Jungle Hunter Clan, Berserker and his clan also abducted humans and other dangerous game for the Super Predators' Hunts.

Berserker was eventually killed by Royce, who decapitated the Super Predator with a bone axe.


On the Game Preserve


The Berserker Predator's Thermal Vision.

The Berserker Predator and his clan began a new Hunt on the Game Preserve Planet. To begin the Predators started toying with their prey to test their sanity and emotion. The first test was to use one of the corpses of a previously hunted human to lure Royce and the others into a trap. The selected human for the test was Cuchillo. While in seemingly horrible pain, Cuchillo kept crying out "Help me." While Isabelle and some of the others wanted to help him, Royce and eventually the others conclusively decided that it was a trap and there was nothing they could do for him without getting killed. Unable to let him suffer, Isabelle shot Cuchillo with her sniper rifle as a mercy kill, but he cried "Help me" once more. Cuchillo was revealed to have been dead all along and the Berserker Predator's hunting brother, Tracker, was simply playing a recording from his Bio-Mask's vocal mimicry.

Later, the group of humans came upon the Predator's Hunting Camp where they kept their trophies and there they find the Crucified Predator chained to a large totem. Suddenly Mombasa was impaled by spears and the Berserker with his clan brothers attacked the humans. The Berserker fired his Plasmacaster at Royce and the others, destroying Nikolai's M134 Minigun in the process. The humans managed to escape into a river only for the Predator Falcon to fly overhead and go back to the Hunting Camp. Falconer, Tracker and Berserker de-cloak. The Berserker was thrilled that the Hunt had begun.

After the humans encountered Noland and escaped from his exploding hideout following the death of the Tracker Predator by Nikolai, Stans was shot from behind by the cloaked Berserker. The Predator de-cloaked in front of the frightened humans and locked his tri-beams on Royce and prepared to fire his Plasmacaster. Stans, however, jumped onto the Berserker's back and stabbed him multiple times, giving the others time to retreat. The Berserker grabbed Stans and threw him over his shoulder with ease. Stans taunted the Predator to kill him before the Berserker obliged, tearing Stans' spinal cord along with his skull from his body. Claiming Stans as a trophy the Berserker let out a roar of triumph.

Later, the Berserker caught Isabelle and Edwin in a net and took the two back to the hunting camp. As he threw them into a pit, he noticed that the Crucified Predator had been freed by Royce. The honorable hunter activated his spaceship to get Royce back home. The Berserker roared furiously and as Royce flees, the two Predators charged at each other and clashed. After a relatively short, but viciously brutal fight, the Berserker overwhelmed his enemy and grabbed Crucified by the throat. The Berserker took off his Bio-Mask, revealing his face, and roared as he raised his elongated Wristblade. When the Crucified Predator refused to show fear, the Berserker Predator swiftly decapitated his enemy. As the lifeless corpse of his foe fell to the ground, the Berserker Predator roared in triumph.

The Berserker then recovered his mask and went after Royce; he found the ship taking off. Undeterred, he activated his Remote Detonator by pressing a button on his Wrist Gauntlet and walked away as the ship exploded in the air. Meanwhile, Edwin paralyzes Isabelle and reveals himself to be a psychopathic murderer. Eventually Royce shows up, saves Isabelle, and uses Edwin as bait for the Predator. The Berserker came back to the camp and found Edwin on the ground, bleeding. The Berserker cruelly stabbed him with his Wristblade to see if he was alive. Turning Edwin on his back, the Berserker realized too late that Edwin was rigged with grenades by Royce. The grenades ignited and sent the Predator flying back some distance, before he crashed to the ground. The Berserker, still alive, slowly rose and Royce came out in front of the Predator with an axe-like weapon and battled him.



Royce prepares to deliver the final blow.

Royce ignites a circle of gunpowder set up prior, trapping the two in the center and rendering the Berserker's heat vision useless. Angered, the Berserker roars as Royce takes advantage of the surroundings, hiding among the flames. Making repeated running attacks on the Predator before fleeing back toward the safety of the fire, Royce appears to be wearing the Berserker down. However, the Predator is able to detect Royce's heartbeat and fires his Plasmacaster. Incapacitated by the explosion, Royce is blown back and loses his axe. The Predator begins to violently beat Royce with his bare hands, grabbing him by the throat preparing to decapitate Royce with his Wristblade. Seeing Royce injured, Isabelle attempts to crawl to her sniper rifle and chamber a round. Struggling, she succeeds in shooting the Berserker through the chest. However, she only manages to enrage the Predator. Turning his attention to Isabelle, the Predator launches his Wristblade impaling her in the shoulder. Seeing Isabelle hit by the Wristblade Royce is enraged, regaining some of his strength and unbeknownst to the Berserker, grabbing his axe. Royce strikes at the distracted Predator, destroying its Bio-Mask and exposing its face. Repeatedly striking the Predator in the head with his weapon, Royce severely injures the Berserker, finally severing his left arm. His face finally exposed to Royce, the Berserker roars. With a final heave, the human beheaded the Predator, ending the Hunt.

List of Notable Victims

Personality and Traits

Unlike the more well known Jungle Hunter Predators, who follow the Yautja Honor Code and believe in hunting and fighting honorably, the Berserker Predator brutally kills whatever stands in its way, armed or not, healthy or not. He also appears to attack always when he has the advantage. This can be seen during the Berserker's final moments, where he does not bother to remove his equipment when engaging both the Crucified Predator and Royce. He is also very arrogant and over-confident, even by Predator standards, allowing Isabelle to shoot and distract him when he could just have killed Royce in a few blows, given his enhanced strength.

Weapons and Equipment

The Berserker used a Gatling-type Plasmacaster in which it twirled and fired multiple shots. Like his clan brothers, the Berserker had only one elongated Wristblade on his arm which was capable of being launched like a projectile from his Wrist Gauntlet. The Berserker also had a new, updated version of the Cloak like the rest of his brothers. The Berserker used a new type of Bio-Mask vision in which he could detect the pulse of his prey which helped him discover Royce when he was blinded by the fire that surrounded him. The Berserker was distinguished from the rest of the clan because of the strange shaped jaw bone on his mask and his red and black dreadlocks. After he was holding Stan's spine and skull you can see his two red eyes before revealing his face, through the Bio-Mask of the eye sockets on it, and the lids closed up his red eyes.

NECA action figure biography

"The Berserker Predator is the ultimate hunter. Born with superior physical abilities and intelligence, he was the youngest Yautja to ever kill a Xenomorph [Alien] and reach Young Blood status. Considered a prodigy among his clan, he quickly rose to almost legendary Warrior status; achieving more kills than any Predator of his generation. As a Predator of the Honored class, Berserker Predator became a leader of his own hunting clan consisting of only Himself and two Young Blood Predators: Tracker Predator and Falconer Predator." [1]


  • Berserker is based on the Black Predator in Robert Rodriguez's script for Predators (in fact, Berserker was known as Mr. Black during development). Both are described as larger and more powerful than the more traditional Predators seen in the earlier films.
  • Berserker is the only Predator in Predators who claims a trophy from someone they kill during the course of the movie.
