The Ultimate Predator is the main antagonist of the 2018 sci-fi action horror film The Predator, the fourth installment of the Predator franchise. He is an augmented super-soldier Yautja who was deployed by his people to kill the Fugitive Predator and prevent him from delivering the "Predator Killer" to humanity so that they could fend off an invasion of some kind, although it was only able to succeed due to underestimating the main protagonist Quinn McKenna.
He was voiced and motion captured by Brian A. Prince and Kyle Strauts.
Not much is known about this Yautja's background, other than the fact that he was hailed from a clan who are notorious for performing genetic augmentation on their own members with use of DNA from most challenging lifeforms in the galaxy. The same clan appeared to have a feud with that of Fugitive Predator's for quite some time, arguably as the result of the latter's decision to give humanity a piece of their technology, an act that worth the exile in Yautja community. Ironically, the Ultimate Predator's clan practice in genetic augmentation, but this is arguably worse than their rival's controversial decision as a Yautja typically viewed as a true warrior and hunter after proving themselves via overcoming challenges and grueling training with their own strengths.
Pursuing the Fugitive
At some point after the feud between his clan and that of Fugitive Predator's began, Ultimate Predator, with his own ship, is in a hot pursuit on Fugitive Predator's ship. Despite managing to damage his rival's spacecraft in an ensuing dogfight, the Fugitive escapes from him by jumping into hyperspace, only to crash-land on Earth and is subsequently captured by a government agency. Nevertheless, Ultimate Predator managed to discover where his rival headed and starts to search on Earth.
By the time he enters Earth's atmosphere with his ship, Ultimate Predator found himself facing an unforeseen implication where Rory McKenna is toying with the Fugitive's device he received from his father, inadvertently hacked his ship's system and repeatedly decloaked it, exposing him to the military which prompted them to send some F-22’s to check out the incident. Fortunately, the augmented Yautja managed to restore control over his ship's systems and elude his pursuers, though not without blasting one of them in an ensuing dogfight.
Tracking Down and Killing the Fugitive
Landing his ship in the middle of a forest, he and his augmented Hellhounds split up for their target. His hellhounds surround Rory due to the scent of Fugitive Predator's equipment he carries for Halloween, but they soon meet an opposition from Loonies who come to the boy's rescue, resulting in one of the Hellhounds getting killed in the fight and another ending up lobotomized by a gunshot on the brain which causes it to switch sides with the heroes. Ultimate Predator himself soon arrived by ambushing Fugitive Predator just as he had Quinn on his mercy. Using his physical augmentations, Ultimate Predator overpowers the Fugitive and demanded him for the stolen technology. In defiance, Fugitive Predator made a final attempt to resist by firing his plasma caster and later with his wrist blades, but both efforts fail with Ultimate Predator being too fast and strong. Ultimate shatters the blades by hardening his skin into an exoskeleton before he throws Fugitive onto a parked car and finishes him off by smashing his skull with a punch then rips off Fugitive's head and spine.
Seeing the Loonies escape, Ultimate Predator reported to his clan over the situation. His superiors asked him if there are any human leads and replies to several of them, referring the Loonies. Arriving at Quinn’s residence, Ultimate Predator butchers several government agents and scans the basement for clues, in which he finds Rory's map to the location of Fugitive’s spaceship. As this happens, the government agents make their way to Fugitive’s ship while the Loonies attempt to free Rory from their grasp. Ultimate soon catches up to them and interrupted the fight by killing many military personnel and enters the Fugitive Predator’s ship.
Challenging the Loonies
Discovering that the government military had set up a translation device to intercept his race's language near his rival clan's ship, Ultimate Predator tells the Loonies that he is about to dispose the ship, all while issuing a challenge on them and stating that there's a true warrior among them – the one called McKenna. The group initially think that he is talking about Quinn, but instead it is his son Rory, whose autism can be added among his clan's collection of DNA augmentation choices. The Ultimate then gives the group a seven and a half minute head start to escape and started the hunt by activating the ship's self-destruct system.
The fight between Loonies and Ultimate Predator commences upon Fugitive Predator's destruction. Many members of his opposition, including Loonies and the military personnel are slain, but the Ultimate is injured when firing his wrist blades on Casey, only for her to use the Fugitive's mask to deflect the shot and resulting in the mask's plasma caster blasting him. Ultimate Predator soon found himself setting up a trap that exposed him to a highly flammable gas which Nebraska ignites, but this doesn't kill the augmented Yautja as he is being burned alive. Ultimate then impales Baxley on a tree when the latter attempted to stab him before swiftly killing Coyle and falls into the water. Recovering from the assaults, he takes Rory away as a prisoner back to his ship, prompting Quinn, Nettles and Nebraska to jump onto it before it takes off. Surprised by their tenacity, he activates his ship's force field which slices Nettles' legs off and caused him to fall off the ship to his death while Quinn ducks underneath it. However, Nebraska sacrifices himself by sliding into the ship's engines, blowing them up and sending the ship crashing back to Earth. Quinn gets inside the ship and confronts Ultimate Predator, who restrains him with his harpoon weapon and sends him tumbling out of his crashed ship in the process.
Final Battle and Death
Despite suffering injuries sustained from the crash, Ultimate Predator decided to continue the fight and went after Quinn. The augmented Yautja then cornered his adversary, but found himself shrugging off gunshots from Casey, who ambushed him from behind with the aid of Fugitive's cloaking system, giving Quinn enough time to wrestle Ultimate towards his ship. Coincidently, Rory used the opportunity to sever Ultimate Predator's right arm off with the ship's force field, but it's not enough to stop the augmented Yautja, who continues his assault on his father. Fortunately, Ultimate's lobotomized Hellhound aids Quinn by giving him Ultimate's severed arm, allowing Quinn to shoot an explosive at Ultimate's leg, blowing up and dismembering the augmented Yautja before finishing him off by shooting Ultimate in the head multiple times.
Having augmented himself with DNA from various lifeforms across the galaxy, Ultimate Predator developed a great deal of confidence to the point of arrogance. Although interested on Rory's autism, he is obsessed to become one of the strongest augmented Yautja in his clan and develop disdain towards weaker members of his race.
Powers and Abilities
- Augmented Yautja Physiology: While he is hailed from the already formidable race of head-hunters, Ultimate Predator stands out from other members of his race (with the exception of his fellow augments if any) due to upgrading his body with DNA from various powerful lifeforms that gave him additional powers along with cybernetic upgrades.
- Dermal Armor: Ultimate Predator can harden his skin into an exoskeletal armor that is strong enough to shatter wrist-blades with his sheer resilience to damage alone.
- Digitigrade Legs: Despite his digitigrade legs build somewhat impractical for his humanoid form, they are optimized for enhanced mobility greater than a Yautja's standards.
- Extreme Resilience: Ultimate Predator's bodily functions and durability are greatly optimized to the point of only blood loss from dismemberment and brain trauma that can kill him.
- Cybernetic Augmentation: Ultimate Predator's eyes appear to be given some form of bionic upgrade that share the same system with that of a Yautja's bio-mask, giving him different visions without needing one.
- Ultimate Predator is the fourth Predator who is regarded as a Bad Blood in the film series after Berserker Predator, Falconer Predator and Tracker Predator.
- Ultimate Predator is arguably the first Predator whom hailed from a clan consists of Bad Bloods.
