Predator 2


Lieutenant Michael "Mike" R. Harrigan (Danny Glover) is an LAPD officer and the protagonist of the second movie, who while dealing with rival Jamaican and Colombian drug cartels, discovers that the Predator is killing members of both factions, as well as police officers. He is very stubborn, and often is conflicted by superior officers for he "never obeys orders", but his record for busting criminals keeps him on the force. Seeking vengeance for the death of his friend, Danny Archuleta, Harrigan ultimately defeats the Predator inside its ship using its own throwing disc. He is then confronted by several other Predators, but seeing that their clan-mate was killed by Harrigan in a fair fight, the Predators let him go, giving him an antique pistol from the 18th century. Harrigan then barely escapes the tunnel where the ship is located as it lifts off, leaving the area burnt.


Sergeant Danny "Danny Boy" Archuleta (Rubén Blades) is a part of Harrigan's team; he is apparently the long-time friend of Harrigan. He is later killed by the Predator while retrieving a suspicious spear tip the Predator left behind during a penthouse slaughter. The Predator Elder later returns his collar (which he took as a trophy) to Harrigan as a symbol of respect.


Detective Leona Cantrell (María Conchita Alonso) is an LAPD cop involved in the Jamaican-Colombian Gang wars. Along the way to meeting Harrigan via subway train, they notice a man being threatened to be killed by a group of thugs. Lambert and Leona draw their weapons, only to notice all the doors have been shut tight, and the Predator which was on the roof of the train is now inside, killing the thugs and other armed citizens. After being ordered by Jerry to evacuate the people, she heads back only to find Jerry dead. The Predator attacks her, but just as it's about to kill her, it notices that she's pregnant. Seeing this, the Predator spares Leona, allowing her to live, though the shock of the event causes her to pass out.

Peter Keyes

Special Agent Peter J. Keyes (Gary Busey) is an NSA agent leading a special task force investigating a supposed drug conspiracy; this is only a cover for his attempts to capture the Predator. His entire team is killed by the Predator while they are attempting to freeze him in a slaughterhouse for study, while Keyes is temporarily incapacitated by a glancing blow from the Predator's Plasma Caster. Moments before the Predator is about to kill Harrigan, Keyes, scarred on the left side of his face from the blast, viciously jumps in front of the Predator, attempting to freeze the creature as per his original mission. However the Predator launches his throwing disc at Keyes which bisects him.


Garber (Adam Baldwin) is a member of Keyes' task force investigating a supposed drug conspiracy; this is only a cover for his attempts to capture the Predator. His entire team is killed by the Predator while they are attempting to freeze him for study in a slaughterhouse. He is one of the only four survivors of the team.


Detective Jerry Lambert (Bill Paxton) is an LAPD cop, eventually transferred from another precinct into Metro Command. He is a comedic member of the team often telling bad jokes with Leona. During the Predator fight in the subway, he makes a stand by allowing other civilians as well as Leona to escape. He died fighting the Predator, He is taken down the subway tunnel and his head and spine is ripped from his body, and Harrigan witnesses his mutilation.

King Willie

King Willie (Calvin Lockhart) is the boss of the Jamaican Voodoo Posse. He appears to be psychotic to a certain degree because of his voodoo beliefs, doing things such as ordering his men to remove the heart of a rival drug dealer. He is having the same problem with the Predator as Harrigan is. All that he knows at his meeting with Harrigan is that the Predator is from another world. When he sees the Predator at sight he says, "His foundation lie in the Holy Mountain. Selah", and draws his sword against the alien before his head is sliced off and his spine is torn out of his body for a trophy.


Tony Pope (Morton Downey, Jr.) is a journalist, who reports the gruesome and murderous homicides left by the Predator. He is constantly harassed by the police for reporting at inappropriate times or interfering when least useful. When trying to ask Harrigan about the situation of the Predator's attack on a subway train, Harrigan angrily punches him out.

The "City Hunter" Predator

Another Predator (Kevin Peter Hall) appears in Los Angeles 10 years later, hunting drug lords and then members of the LAPD when they interfere in its hunt. The Predator is eventually killed by Harrigan, who rams The Predator's throwing disc into its own stomach while fighting it in its ship.

This Predator was designed to look more urban and hip than its predecessor. Design changes included tribal ornamentation on the forehead, which was made steeper and shallower, brighter skin colouration and a greater number of fangs.<ref name="Winston">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref>
