Any Predator, no matter how big and strong, isn't going to survive a facehugger. That's got to count for something.
Would the Predator Killer suit be able to resist one?
If it's made out of the same metal that Wolf used to fight aliens, then yes.

I think xenos would eventually stop one based on this:

According to audio logs produced by Sean Keyes, the armor was likely an early prototype, as it was shown to have several flaws, despite it's advanced hardware. Examples of this were that tests performed on the armor found it to be brittle, as well as vulnerable to small arms fire. The power source used in it was only good for a full 24 seconds before shutting down and attempts to fire the large plasmacasters caused the suit to overload.

Xenomorph. It is truly the most alien design ever concieved. The Predator looks like the concept imput: Rastafarian warrior. He's cool, don't get me wrong, but him hunting and skinning people never bothered me compared to the life cycle of the Xeno.

I guess we can be less bothered by a predator that seemingly hunts only dangerous prey. We cannot considerate ourselves dangerous enough on a daily basis to trigger a predator's hunting needs.

Predator is way more badass than your average xenomorph. I'd take any one predator(minus some deep cut, obscure wimpy ones) over any one xenomorph, even the most badass queen.

In my point of view, yes, the Alien it's more badass than the Predator

The question is what exactly is meant by badass?
that is a matter of interpretation.
tougher, more brutal, more dangerous, more resistant, "cooler", better design... all together?

On each of these points, fans' opinions will differ when it comes to defending their personal favorite.

cooler: Predator

everything else: sorry, ALIEN of course  ;D

Why do you think the Alien is more dangerous than a Predator?

Why do you think the Alien is more dangerous than a Predator?

nothing easier than this.
The predator is selective when looking for victims and only selects certain opponents.

The alien doesn't give a shit and flattens everything.

So if I had the choice of who I would rather meet, it would be Pred.
He probably wouldn't care much about a normal civilian, while the alien instinctively accepts almost any victim.

Of course you could argue with different Predator castes, but overall the alien is the far more dangerous species.

think about the spread. Let an alien run free on Earth and humanity will be grilled.

The Predator just comes to visit every now and then.

If I meet a Predator I'm getting ignored.

If I meet an Alien I'm getting killed, awfully.

I'd rather be on the Predator's ignore list than on the Alien's menu.
