Predators and regrowing limbs, yay or nay? (Read 799 times)

The Shuriken

So the other day I was playing around with the idea of how it would be possible for some Predators to regrow limbs. I was thinking it could be a very rare gene in their blood. Like only 10 or so among thousands have the ability. And within their society those who can are considered blessed by their gods. Is it an ability you think would be neat? Or would it make an already powerful being over powered?

Nah. Just give them a limb made out of predtech if they need it.

Corporal Hicks

Definitely a nay from me. I'd rather see them with some wicked prosthetics.

Rather no.
But it might be an interesting feature for aliens.

Well it's Scott's intent. At least in Covenant. I feel like it was also going to be a thing with the Alien's tail in the original but I can't remember 100% off-hand.

Yep

Also, this thread would probably benefit from having a poll

Poll added.

The Alien was going to regrow a limb in Alien, yes.

Give Predators prosthetics, it fits their style more.

Voodoo Magic

The Neighs have it.


Nightmare Asylum

Nay, but voted "Yay" just to watch the world burn.

I don't think it suits them, but it wouldn't especially bother me either if it came up.

However, as presented in the OP, definitely not. Either they all can or none can (preferably none), but a rare recessive gene for regrowing whole limbs is... not how that works.

I'd be into them cloning limbs and replacement parts but not outright regrowing them.

Robotics fit the style more and with mutants seemingly being more recent I feel like they're more likely to have cyborgs walking around than anybody that can regrow a leg.

Regrowing is such an advanced scifi idea for our current time that it seems silly today.  Even for an advanced species.

I'd say if they injured it around their tech, they could reattach it, or go prothesis if they couldn't.

Idk about limbs, seems like too much of a super power to me but something about a light healing factor that deals with deep cuts, lacerations, or gashes in a period of 3 days or so seems more reasonable. Seeing a form of tribal-high tech prosthetics would be a badass fresh design take on new Predator characters is a better alternative!
