Illfonic actually has answered "rank" and his age at least to a degree. His flavor text in Hunting Grounds does indicate he's a "young blood" by the time Predator 2 occurs (since it's based on that incarnation of him) and the logs indicate he's around 300 though we don't get a specific age.

Fascinating, so it records him as a Young Blood. I always thought his skin pallor, his eyebrows (which looked closer to The Lost Tribe Elder and AVP Elder), and some of his non-bio mask mannerisms made me believe he was older than Jungle. Perhaps he’s older, as in both are Young Bloods, but City is slightly older?

Perhaps he's not older at all.

Perhaps he is the same age as Jungle.

Although I still feel City is older.

I heard somewhere that City Hunter saw the footage of what happened to Jungle and decided to go on a hunt during the heat wave in L.A. is this a fan theory or can it be found in some kind of literature?

I always figured he was younger and less experienced.

Sort of on Predator Rumspringa.

That’s interesting, his breathing issues made me think he was older, including his skin coloring.

City Hunter is younger than Jungle Hunter, per the creators:





Xenopedia claims he’s Blooded which a rank above:
With all due respect I don't take fan sites as gospel.

Yeah, unfortunately, although I respect, applaud and appreciate their hard work over at Xenopedia,  I do remember there was A LOT of misinformation on their Predator 2 page alone, which unfortunately caused a great deal of confusion and has since been cleaned up.

And never fully trust a site dedicated to a fictional character that doesn't even know what the creators of that fictional character look like. Xenopedia are still embarrassingly using pictures of Jim & John Thomas (the twin owners of the El Pinto Restaurants) incorrectly as Jim & John Thomas, the creators of Predator. (facepalm)

Well that settles it, City is Younger. Thank you Voodoo for sharing that info. :)

I suppose I should have caught that City was younger since he’s acrobatic and a close killer. I mean you’d expect an older Pred to use a Plasmacaster mostly, while a Young Blood uses a Combistick and Wristblades.

I am do believe Scar is much younger than City Hunter.

If you go by Paul Anderson, Scar is older than the first two Predators.

I do not go by Paul Anderson.

I like AvP 2004 but that's just load of bullshit, Mr. Anderson  :D

Yup, and he said the first two were younger than that, hence no scars on them.

Well AVP isn’t canon, so Anderson’s sentiments are simply that.

Well, they are definitely separate licenses and subsequently separate revenue streams, but as of 2018's "The Predator", both Predator and AvP is one big continuity, which makes sense overall with the Xeno skull in Predator 2 to the Hawkins Grave in AvPR to the spear in The Predator.



Who knows how Disney's 20th Century Studios sees all this now, though.

A note of trivia though is the AvP films are considered "sequels" per the current lawsuit:

If AVP becomes canon, it will require they explain David is no the father of Xenomorphs, but simply found the recipe the Predators in AVP and AVPR did.

AvP was retconned by Prometheus detaching the prequels and subsequently the Alien film franchise entirely from AvP.
