A Predalien is the playable Xenomorph character in the 2002 video game Aliens versus Predator 2: Primal Hunt.


This particular Predalien started its life as a Facehugger hatched within a Yautja encampment on LV-1201 in the midst of a Xenomorph outbreak. The Facehugger sought out the Ancient Predator as he was attempting to put up a stasis field around a nest of Xenomorph eggs, but right as the Facehugger leapt towards him, the field activated and both of them were frozen. However, it inevitably manages to subdue the Yautja. After the Ancient sends a distress signal from the Forward Observations Pods (which apparently is caught by Prince's ship), the Predalien Chestburster bursts out of him.

After finding an ample food supply in the morgue (human cadavers), it matures and begins to slaughter Weyland-Yutani Corporation guards and escapes Pod 5 along with many other Aliens as Rykov self-destructs it. It is confirmed that it wasn't the Predalien which the Drone freed later in Pod 2 only to be killed by Harrison, or one of the two Predaliens that ambushed Prince (both were also killed by Prince). The two Predaliens are killed in the level "Old Debts", where Prince fights them. Two chestbursted Predators can also be seen lying on the ground.

The Predaliens in Aliens versus Predator 2 do not have the ability to Headbite like other Aliens because they lack an inner jaw. However, in Primal Hunt they were given the ability to Headbite with their mandibles.

List of Notable Victims[]


  • The LV-1201 Predalien is unique in that it is the only video game playable character to be born from another playable character (the Ancient Predator). It is also the only playable character to ever kill another in the same game (again, the Ancient Predator).
  • Out of all the Predaliens seen, the LV-1201 Predalien bears the greatest resemblance to a Yautja.
