4. Ronald Noland

Project: Predators

Roland shouldn’t be a forgotten character in the Predator lore. He spent years on the Yautja’s Stasis Farm, survived, and killed a bunch of his hunters. Finding food and drinkable water must have been a challenge. Doing that while fighting for your life makes it more impressive.

Unfortunately, being there drove him crazy. Roland started talking to himself and lost all of his humanity. The latter cost him his life. Nevertheless, he’s still a top-five Yautja killer. Imagine how good he was before he went crazy. Maybe that’s the project we need to see. 

3. Naru

"You bled my brother. So now you bleed. You think that I am not a hunter like you. That I am not a threat. That is what makes me dangerous." -Naru

Project: Prey

Naru wasn’t supposed to fight the Yautja or be a fighter at all. She was supposed to be a healer. But Naru wasn’t going to let either of those stop her. She wanted to be a hunter and felt an obligation to protect her people.

Naru is the most inexperienced fighter on this list. Realistically, she shouldn’t have won this fight. However, as Naru said in the movie, "It knows how to hunt. But I know how to survive." She knew the land better than the Yautja, she was faster, had more patience, and exploited the Predator’s arrogance. That's why she survived while her opponent didn’t.
