The Yautja, more commonly known as "Predators", are an extraterrestrial race of warriors and hunters who travel the galaxy seeking dangerous quarry to hunt for sport and honor. While they live in nomadic tribes, they are highly advanced and possess highly dangerous technology to help them in their hunts. They stalk their prey by using their technology, before killing them and ritualistically mutilating them, usually claiming a trophy as well. They have hunted on Earth for centuries, and deliberately bred Xenomorphs in order to hunt them.

Intelligence: Very high, especially when it comes to technology, tactics, extraterrestrial biology, and astronomy. The Yautja possess far higher mental capabilities than humans thanks to their alien psychology.
Weaknesses: Their "code of honor" prevents them from killing those who cannot fight back and may limit (removing most or all of their equipment except for a melee weapon, usually wrist blades or even going bare-handed) themselves against prey they deem worthy enough to fight them in melee.
