The female Predator in Hunting Grounds sucks and is significantly worse than how female Predators are in novels.

Predator don't have a solid cannon, it's as fluid as it comes. What's true is only true as long as something else doesn't come along to say differently.

In short, anything is possible, but it doesn't mean you'll see it.

Well, a new Hunting Grounds trailer came out today for State of Play and they showed off a new female Predator design. Cool, right?

Wrong. Why? Because female Predators in novelisations are so much damn cooler. This tweet sums it up.

Female Predators are so damn huge and buff that they emmasculate male Predators and make them insecure. Why didn't we get that?
Well it said it there in the Tweet. Non-canon. What even is the canon for the series at this point though?

Edit: Also why can't it be like Klingon where the everyone is just hyper aggressive all of the time?

What bugs me more then the height thing is that we once again we have what is clearly a non-mammalian species that has breasts.

I hate that cliche...

I mean we dont really see the female predator next to anything in the trailer to judge the scale by, so as far as we know she is giant. But I am going to assume in actuality that she probabaly is about the same size as the other predators.

But also...I dont really care.

Should predator women have breasts??? Honestly I think it’s fine because both the male and female predators have like the same amount of clothing/armor on. I do like the idea of bigger predator women though.

Honestly I wouldn't really consider anything that isn't in the first Predator movie canon.

This is a very common issue with artists renditions of "other" races/beings.

There is almost no imagination for anything regarding humanoids of the female sex/gender. You can see male species all buffed up, huge, different proportions, but you look at the female versions of the same races and it's literally all the same chest/hip ratio and always in a thinner/smaller frame.

Even if it turns out that it's not "cannon", it's still propagating an issue regarding fiction and the "default" nature of how people view women.

It makes no sense for an alien to be bipedal, have two arms, have two eyes above their mouth and four fingers with one opposable thumb, not to mention a muscular structure almost exactly the same as a human's, so it's pretty absurd to act like boobs cross a line. If we want to talk scientifically, there is zero chance Predators and Homo Sapiens are not very closely related.

Can we talk about how bad that character design is?

"We want to have a female predator"
'Were the other ones male? I never really thought about predator gender before'
'Yes, they were male. So I'm thinking this one will look just lie them but just have giant tits,'
It's basically this with a predator mask:

The bikini top kills me. :D

Dang, at least make her buff. She's supposed to be a hunter.

That's another annoying thing about female character designs: homogenous swimsuit model bodies. Street Fighter character designs have their issues, but at least the designers understand that women can have muscles and different builds.

Well in the comics they also didn't hunt at all so non cannon video gamey fun is whatever.
Those plasma casters better tear holes in people though...that's where they could lose me on this one.

I was kinda disappointed as well.

I don't want giant buff female predators.

I want giant SCARY female predators.

User banned (1 month): sexism over a series of posts
I don't get it, devs work to be inclusive to the point of adding gender to monster aliens that kill people and the best people come up with is "I don't like this design?" I feel like the devs added something didn't have to and no one would have even noticed, but because this model doesn't look like some unfeminine roid monster someone once wrote about it's horrible? I really feel people miss the forest for the trees(they don't like). We are living in an age where female representation in games is getting more and more mainstream but we can't celebrate anything we can only complain when that representation doesn't match what we feel it should look like. Like the representation doesn't count because you don't like boob plates. Sigh. I think the design is cool and I like the fact they made a female murder machine that looks just as capable as the other predators.

So never criticize anything ever because it could be worse?

I like the design but I get where people are coming from and just trying to dismiss any criticism is odd.

Also "unfeminine roid monster?" Keep it classy.

Can’t a dev just give us their interpretation? Maybe make your own predator game and give us your interpretation too.

OP I google Female Predator and it was all massive tits and metal thongs so I'm disagreeing with you. This is better than what people wanted. From what I can tell they're taller than the males but everything else is creepy fetish

Agreed. People are latching onto an idea/design that was only described by one dude and treating it like it's the canon design. There is no official female Predator in the movies. And they're barely ever shown or acknowledge outside of a few comics. Each design different than the other interpretations, so yeah, this is the interpretation the devs are going for. The Predalien has a different design in the movie and games due to interpretation from different people. If someone wants to make a female Predator with characteristics like the novelization, I'm all for it.

Are people not allowed to criticize these designs? "Make your own" is hilariously patronizing and reductive.

What even is this post?

People drew porn so you can't say you wish these designs were different?

I'm not sure after Disneys bought Fox But Fox was Reboot AVP EU Story.
I think The Description of The Female Predator from Rage Wars Trilogy just like Male Predator.

Some of the biology talk in this thread is literally "piss is stored in the balls" level.

I don't get why they needed to make 'female' predators in the first place. You could easily just have the species not be sexually dimorphic and avoid the issue altogether instead of running headfirst into the 'make it sexy' wall.

I mean the only way i could tell it was a female predator was the slimmer frame and big boobs.
Sounds like a 'me' problem.

Wasn't porn. That's kinda the problem. Creepy fetish that isnt straight up for porn, like xenomorphs and the Predalien. If it's buff zarya style predators I'm in, but I'm out on metal thongs
Ok? So people drew sexy fanart so you can't wish these designs were different?

I'm just confused how wanting giant muscled Predator woman leads to metal thongs.

I like muscular women but I would still expect them to dress appropriately and I'm sure OP wanted that too.
