Universe Alien vs. Predator
"If it bleeds, we can kill it."

The Yautja are the primary alien antagonists of the Predator film series, they are a race of hunters that continuously seek human and other exotic prey both sapient and non-sapient.

In the various non-film media the Predator have been portrayed in a number of different ways, they are typically called the Yautja (ya-OOT-ja) in expanded material and the term has generally been accepted by fans and writers of the material.

However in two of the DH Press predator books, starting with Predator: Forever Midnight they are portrayed as the Hish-qu-Ten (Abbreviated as Hish), with seemingly no attempt to even loosely connect them with previous versions of the species.
